About Mary Branum

My husband's family dates from 1851 on the island. His great grandfather was the electrician for the Hotel Galvez. The family home built in 1889 still stands today. I grew up in Houston, but frequented Galveston as my father's ship docked at the old grain elevators. After living in many places and traveling all over the world, we made the decision to live on the island and enjoy all Galveston has to offer.

The owner is a Certified Tourism Ambassador for Galveston through the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, a Business Member of the Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council and member of STROAG (Short Term Rental Owners Association of Galveston).

Mary Branum purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Mary Branum chose Galveston

We purchased the home from family and was the first of several homes we have renovated on the island. It took almost a year to complete all the updates for ourselves. We were in the home 3 days when we found our own 'home', an 1860 Texas Historical home, 10 blocks away. We did not want to sell our first 'redo', but chose to open it for guests. We left everything in the home that was meant for us, knowing that guests would want to feel they as if they were walking into their own home,

What makes this cottage unique

The Coronado Palms received its name from some of the wood furniture pieces in the home from Guatemala purchase in 1935, the year the home was built, by my husband's grandparents. The many palm trees in the front added to the name, The home has a wonderful front porch to catch the southerly Gulf breeze and a cozy, inviting interior.

PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
I wish I could explain just how cozy, comfortable and relaxing this house was. The ocean breeze was felt 100% of the time during our stay while on the front porch! This house was simply amazing! The owner was very kind and friendly. As for the "pan handlers" all we saw was your typical island people, laid back, friendly and happy! Thank you for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and choosing the Coronado Palms for your weekend getaway. You and your friends were wonderful guests and hope that all of you return in the future.

We make sure everything is as perfect as can be at the house. Every time I walk in I ask myself "would I want to stay here?" This keeps me on my toes to make sure everything is perfect for our guests.

As for pan handlers, we used to have a guy down the street who washed cars. Wonderful, older man who fell on hard times but did a great job on cars. He has moved out of the State to a better life.

Living on an island, one can't help to be happy!

This house was everything we expected plus more. House was well stocked with everything we needed. Our dog enjoyed the fenced yard to roam freely. Beds were comfortable and house was large and roomy for our family.

close to beach

  • 4 of 5
he house was very nice and we enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and to restaurants. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The neighborhood wasn't the best and we were approached by panhandlers within 30min of our arrival. Also the street in front of the house seemed to have a lot of speeders. All in all we had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We try to provide everything our guests would need at the home. We have a very good neighborhood watch that works diligently to keep the neighborhood safe. We will let neighbors know so they can take appropriate action.
The neighborhood, as are most in Galveston, is old. They all have different character that adds to the uniqueness of the City.
Unfortunately, summer sees a lot of traffic throughout the island with many using side streets as the major streets are very busy.

Glad you had a great time and hope that you will return to the Coronado Palms.

Weekend Get Away!!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our weekend at this home and all that it offered! The house was great and was enough for our family to enjoy thank you to Mary the owner. It was only a quick walk to the beach and other amenities that you need. We loved that our dog was able to come along with us and glad we were able to keep him safe in a fenced backyard. I will definitely recommend this home to my friends and family!! We enjoyed going to the Pleasure Pier, USS Cavalla, and Offshore oil rig museum!! We are looking forward to coming back in the summer for sure!!

Truly enjoyed this little house. Was close to EVERYTHING! Comfortable furnishings. Everything you and your family could possibly need. The tickets to several of the local attractions was wonderful. Thinking about returning in the winter for a nice get-away.

Well Worth the Price

  • 4 of 5
Me, my husband, and my little 2-year-old daughter stayed at Coronado Palms for 3 nights in July. Not only is this house in walking distance to the beach (just 3 minutes on foot!), it also has a fully fenced backyard and pets can stay free. We thought the decor was very charming and beachy, our hostess left us free passes to local attractions, and the front porch was perfect for sipping drinks and watching the world walk by.

We thought the price per night was really reasonable considering you get a whole little house - single hotel rooms in Galveston cost this much!

We really did love it and would definitely stay again. Our only complaint was that the neighbors next door seemed a little sketchy. They got into an angry argument outside our window one night and it was a bit scary and uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. The Coronado Palms is meant to be a home away from home for our guests.
Sorry we can't control the neighbors, but that can happen anywhere. We have known them for 15 years and have not had a problem.. We will ask them to kindly respect our guests.

The home has been thoroughly restored and updated. Soft pastel colors accentuate the bead board ceilings and crown molding throughout the home.

1920's antique furniture from Guatemala called the Coronado in the living and dining rooms and the many palm trees on the property gave the cottage its name.

The ultra suede sofa bed and large easy chairs add comfort to the living area.
