We have an extra refrigerator and freezer in the ground floor storage area that is accessible to you for more cool storage space.
We have all the dishes, pots and pans that we need for ourselves to use the house. There are two coffee pots. One is 12 cups and one is 4 cup. We even leave the spices out for you. We are not lacking anything in the house. We have ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, kitchen - dining and living areas. We installed new hurricane proof windows and doors which makes the house very quiet inside.
We have large windows in all the rooms so the house is bright and cheery. The cathedral ceiling in the living area of the house makes it feel very large. The dining table will seat 8 with 5 more at the large bar.

About Charles Calvin
My wife and I built this house for ourselves. In 1996. In 2009 we did not rent but used it only for ourselves. Everyone just loves our house. There is nothing we would change after having used it for 18 years. We now live here in the Oct to May season full time. We leave in the fall for a few weeks to spend time with our grandchildren so if you are interested in a holiday visit to the beach check our calender as I keep it up to date.
Charles Calvin purchased this house in 1996
Why Charles Calvin chose Galveston
We built the house because we could not find a house that was right for us. It is close in to Galveston with great views and a short one minute walk to the very wide beach.
What makes this house unique
This house works well for one or two or three couples couple or a large family. The large deck of about 800 square feet will give everyone room outside. The neighborhood is very quiet. The ground floor garden area (700 sq ft in size) has several tables and about 7 chairs with a rocking couch. This area is always cool, but we did not know that when we put in the two ceiling fans which we never use. There is an out door (hot and cold water) shower in the garden area also. There is a hammock, 6 or 8 chairs, a rocking chair that seats 2, and several tables. We have a charcoal grill for cooking and BBQ.
We like to sit here in the afternoon shade and enjoy the breezes off the water.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for having us. We had a very nice time here.
Your fireplace flue is rusted in the open position.
Thank you very much for telling me about the flue. I fixed it as soon as I got your note. We hope you will come again.
We really enjoyed our stay.
