Hello, We're from Kingwood, TX. With our son away to college and our daughter out in the working world as a nurse, we're now empty nesters. On the other hand, our daughter recently gave us our first grandchild!

I grew up only a couple of hours away and was fortunate enough to spend time in Galveston at least once or twice a year. My husband is from North Carolina, but he got to Texas as quick as he could 20 years ago!

We both love to travel and have been to several countries and scenic spots over the years, but we keep returning to Galveston for the charm and laid back atmosphere. It's our little get away from it all place.

Richard purchased this house in 2012

We have been coming to Galveston to the beach for several years. But we recently realized that Galveston had so much more to offer than just its beaches which are nice. We began taking our bikes with us and started riding through all the Victorian Era neighborhoods, the Seawall, the Strand. Soon we started spending every weekend possible exploring the island and its rich history. We also found that staying in a house was much more relaxing than staying in a hotel. When we came across this adorable vintage 1889 Gulf Coast Style Cottage on a quiet street just around the corner from the Seawall, we knew it was a place that we would love to own. It has been so much fun putting our personal touches on it and finishing out the attic bed and bath rooms. We love the old wooden floors everywhere, the soaring high ceilings, and the beautiful little staircase leading up to the attic dorm rooms and we hope you do too!

Perfect for two small families with pets!

We had a great time in this cute house! It fit our five teens, four adults and small dogs comfortably. The main dining table was great for meals and family games. A bonus for us parents is that in the evenings while the teens were watching movies or playing games, we could walk a short two blocks to the Galvez for cocktails. One thing is though the house is only a few blocks from the beach - the Pleasure Pier was a little more of a trek. If you were to bring bicycles to the house, you could easily ride them to all the Galveston hot spots - including the beach, Pleasure Pier, the Strand, etc. The teens didn't mind the walk to the Pier though! We would defintietly recommend and/or stay at Pelican Place again!

Wonderful vacation for a family of several generations. Peaceful trip down memory lane for grandparents as they enjoy the beautiful old city sights and shopping. Thrills for the youngsters with the amusements parks and the beach. This gracious old home accommodated the whole family in comfort. Thank you. Sharon woods

Pelican Place is centrally located and close to everything in Galveston. Walk everywhere you go! You are only 2 blocks from the beach and 6 blocks from the new Pleasure Pier! Many great restaurants and bars are an easy walk.

Do you prefer the Historic Strand? It's only a few minutes away, too! There you will find live theater, shopping and many wonderful restaurants.

Want more than the beach, restaurants and shopping? How about a water park? It's only 5 miles to Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens.

Bishop's Palace and Moody Mansion are just a short distance, too. Don't miss these fabulous houses with beautiful antiques and interesting history. The historical Silk Stocking District is only 3 blocks away and boasts a varied collection of historic homes that reflect development from the Civil War through World War II. The neighborhood includes some of Galveston’s best examples of the Queen Anne style architecture.
