About Lamar Mathews

After restoring several historic homes in Galveston and Houston, my husband and I fell in love with this wonderful historic craftsmen bungalow. We wanted to go with a fun beachy vibe to make this home the perfect beach bungalow.

Why Lamar Mathews chose Galveston

We love Galveston because of the beach (of course) but we also love that there is so much history in this city. There are numerous historic tours of homes and other sites throughout the city. There are art galleries and lots of shopping for antiques and great food. There is never a dull moment with some festival or another going on every weekend.

What makes this house unique

This property is a few blocks from the beach as well as the new Pleasure Pier and a 5-10 minute drive to historical locations, the Strand and Pier 21. Yet it's also very quiet at the house if you just want to have a relaxing quiet vacation or enjoy time with family and friends.

College Reunion at the beach

  • 5 of 5
The Bungalow by the Beach was perfect for our quiet little three couple college reunion. We had one couple that has a 1 year old and they kept commenting on how great the layout of the house was. Lamar was great about letting us arrive a little early and leave a little late as we had flight schedules to work around for the weekend.

The only thing was the kitchen wasn't fully stocked - we had to buy a colander and a cutting board along with a large mixing bowl, even with bringing a lot of our own equipment from the one person that lived in Texas. But that's from a big cook - so it likely won't be an issue for most people.

Other than that the weekend was fantastic! The house was a quick walk to the beach, even with a stroller, and centrally located to just about everything - including church on Sunday morning (both Episcopal and Catholic) and the grocery store, restaurants etc.

Our group is already talking about going back. We had a blast even though it was overcast - and we spent the majority of our time in the house!

This place is awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Me and two girlfriends stayed here for 3 nights in July and we absolutely LOVED it! We were so pleased with how clean the home was and how comfortable and homey it felt. It was as if we were staying at a friends home. All of us just loved the decor; they've done a fantastic job decorating. We really did adore this place and have already talked about booking again in the future for another "girls getaway." Thanks so much for maintaining such a clean, comfortable and cute property! Exceeded our expectations in every way.

Everything and more!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome. We enjoyed our stay for the week. It had everything we needed and more. We really loved the sunroom & the glass tile work that the shower and sink have on it. It really had the fun beach theme throughout the whole place. Everything all the other reviews had to say held true once we seen the place for ourselves. The only minor downside was the one bathroom for 4 adults but don't let that stop you from staying here. The tile work is so pretty it makes up for it. Also the mannequin "beach girl" kind of creeped us out but we gave her the name "Bernice" being the female version of the old classic movie "weekend at Bernie's". It gave us all a good laugh through out the week.

We want to thank the owners for a wonderful time & we will for sure be back and recommend to anyone we know who is planning a trip to Galveston .

Family vacation getaway

  • 4 of 5
This was a very cute, clean home! Awesome location to both the beach and the Strand! The bicycles that were provided were lots of fun. Also, the hammock was very relaxing. I wished the photos would have been updated. Living room photo had shown 2 sofas and an easy chair. Upon arrival, only 1 sofa with several side chairs in the living room. The side chairs were not chairs to relax in. Luckily, we only had 3 people, but still was a little crowded on the sofa for watching movies at night. For the amount of beds, not enough seating in living room. Also, the front porch picture does not do the home justice. The large bushes have now been cut down to show how cute this home is! Also very relaxing to sit on porch and hang out. This was one of my favorite spots! I would definitely recommend this home and would enjoy going back!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for my mother who came to visit me in Galveston. The house is maintained very well and looks great. The location is great too. Very nice neighborhood and close to the beach. We had one issue with the wifi and tv and the owner was very quick to take care of it. Overall my mother enjoyed her stay very much!

Fun times in a very fashionable and funky little bungalow!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the style of this bungalow! Not only was the decor fun and funky, the place was practical in design and very well equipped! The owners were so easy to work with. Everything went smoothly and as expected ...we would love to stay again. Thank you for the relaxing, yet fashionable environment you provided for a much needed break at the beach! BTW, the bikes were a hit. Really loved riding along the seawall.
