Always check reviews but understand everyone’s expectations are different. For us, this house was exactly what we were hoping for served us great on our trip. We spent many hours in the pool and enjoyed our stay immensely!!

The best thing about Cozy Cove is the location that’s literally the best thing and the fact that it is fenced in if you have animals which we did not bring this time but usually we have dogs and our dogs can run around while you have complete fishing access to the intercoastal waters. That is the very best thing about Cozy Cove location is great to all restaurants. The house itself looks pretty. But the furniture looks like they got it from the side of the road and it’s just awful. For a family and there was only three of us we could not even watch TV which is something we enjoy doing after we’ve finished or whatever we’ve done all day we like to come in and watch TV at night. The couch was broken down , tiny and uncomfortable. The coffee table is a danger waiting to happen. It’s old with wood splinters coming out of it with sharp glass. I hit my leg on it twice. That’s frustrating when you pay almost $2000 for three nights and the people can’t provide a good comfortable sectional and also a TV should be in every bedroom along with nightstands beside the bed, Very sloppy, as far as the inside of the cabin and disappointing. We did not use the pool , we were mainly there for fishing and we love to dine out and eat gulf seafood at night and hang out at our condo which was not comfortable. But on the positive side, the location was amazing. You cannot get a better location close to Galveston and better fishing even though we didn’t catch that much this time It’s a great location to fish in privacy. .

Beautiful home with lots of space and enough beds to accommodate many people. We absolutely loved...

Beautiful home with lots of space and enough beds to accommodate many people. We absolutely loved the pool, and they even had pool toys available! Make sure to bring toilet paper, and don't walk barefoot on the patio. We got so many splinters on our feet. Overall a great stay!
