Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed our stay. Great place to stay at the beach! It was so hard to wake up and explore because everything in the house was so comfortable. Hopefully we are coming back soon!

We live in Austin, TX and have alot of friends in Galveston. Since we travel to Galveston so frequently, we decided to buy a house and use it as a vacation rental in 2008. The house survived Ike and we feel really blessed to have had zero damage from that storm. We wish we could spend more time in our house, but then it wouldn't be available for you to stay in! :)

Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

We really like this location because it's two blocks from the beach and two blocks from Broadway - the Historic District. Also, it's close to Stewart Beach.

PERFECT!

We absolutely loved the place! Perfect for a couple and our dog. We couldn't have been more pleased with the near everything location and the clean, brightly decorated house, exactly our style. Rex (the property manager) Rocks! Until next time Galveston!

NICE, COZY, CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
The house was nice, cozy, and clean, and the neighborhood seemed quiet and safe. It was supplied with everything we needed, including coffee, sweetener, creamer, bath toiletries, and a generous supply of bath towels and beach towels. The house is within walking distance (3 blocks) from the seawall, and convenient to the east island attractions. The small driveway accommodated my Accord just fine for off-road parking. Free Wi-Fi and tourist pamphlets made it easy to research things to do in Galveston. We had a slight issue trying to watch HBO in the evening, texted the owner, and the issue was quickly resolved. We were able to check in and check out without involvement of the owner or manager, which was convenient. We stayed there only two nights but will definitely consider Martini’s Mansion again if we return to Galveston.

SUPER NICE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Martini's mansion from 3-1-14 to 3-8-14. Check in and out was really easy, the little house was very clean and in a quiet neighborhood. The only surprise we got was we didn't see a stove! I guess I need to check the ad a little closer next time, I did not realize that there was no stove. But there are other things to cook with, like a toaster oven and electric griddle, so we got by ok. Nice cosy little house for a few adults, I would not recommend for families with children though. Great fun, very close to the beach and Bishop's palace, lots of interesting things within walking distance of this house. Thanks for the great vacation!

GREAT FOR A GIRL'S WEEKEND!

Great for a girl's weekend!
  • 5 of 5
My two daughters and I stayed here for a girl's weekend, a last hurrah before summer's end. It was a perfect home base for all of the fun things we wanted to do. We brought our bicycles and rode down to the beach and the fenced in yard was perfect for storing our bikes when not in use. Backyard was also pretty, and peaceful to eat breakfast in.

Property was clean, and accurately described. I would recommend this for a group who doesn't need privacy, as there are no doors dividing the sleeping areas. Bathroom was fine, although a little muggy after 3 showers in a row. But we loved the deep shower and shower head! Having two balconies made laying out our wet suits and towels easy and convenient. Loved having plenty of towels in the bathroom and beach towels. Everything was decorated in a fun and laid back style, so we felt right at home, not stuffy at all! We enjoyed having a really nice TV and DVD player for evening wind downs. Used the free wi-fi to explore things to do in Galveston. It was especially handy that the owners had stacks of brochures and traveler's guide available so we could get up each morning, sort through them and plan our day.

This was conveniently located to all the east island stuff you want to do. We zipped over to harborside and the strand in the car, but could have maybe done it by bike if it wasn't so hot. Parking was a dream, and this block was quiet and felt safe, even coming home late. We love Galveston and will be back, and will stay here again!

WE WILL BE BACK!

I am telling everyone about Martini's Mansion. Super comfortable, close to the beach, and has everything you need for a great trip. There was plenty of room for our family of 6 (me, my husband, 13, 15, 3, and 1 year olds). I can't wait to return!
