About Owner

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

Why Owner chose Galveston

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.

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!

It was a great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the location, it was right up the street from the beach. Rex, the manager was extremely helpful. The yard could be updated and cleaned a bit more, but overall I was extremely satisfied with my stay. We are looking forward to more rentals from you all !

Adorable Little House!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! Relaxing! Will be back again! We slept like babies with the ocean sounds and the very comfortable bed. Had all that we needed for a quick trip to the sun, from the Ice storms we have been having this year. Looking forward to our next escape.

Tia is very easy to do business with and Highly recommend her adorable little house.

warm and cozy home away from home close to beach

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend, dog and I stayed Valentine's weekend 2015, and had a wonderful time. The place really did feel like our home away, and was very clean and had everything we needed and more. All the furniture was clean and comfortable, and slept like a baby. The backyard was well kept, and perfect to let the dog out. We plan to stay here again and highly recommend it. Perfect for a couple or a group of 3, with or without a pet. Also, it is pet friendly, but does not look or smell as if pets stay there, for anyone who may be wondering. Very very close 5 min walk down street to beach.

Relaxing and Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here during restaurant week and had an amazing time. The rental was just as stated, very close to seawall which we ran to the end of and within walking distance of the breakfast restaurants on 14th. The property was clean and the yard well maintained. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch in the morning sun every day of our trip. Checking in and out was hassle free. This rental is perfect for couples looking to getaway for a weekend or small families looking for a easy beach vacation. I would recommend it to family and friends.

Great Galveston Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Martini's Mansion with my two dogs!

Pros:

Cute, very comfortable and clean

Clean, fenced yard for pets!

Small driveway, but it accommodated my mid-to-large-size SUV just fine

Island music playing on the TV greets you

Walking distance to the beach (three blocks)

Soft, distant white noise of the ocean is very calming

Close to the main road and The Strand

Neighborhood is quiet and safe

DirectTV (was easy to use)

Books and lots of movies

LOTS of towels of varying sizes

Toiletries

Full kitchen

Heater units got warm quickly

Tourist attraction pamphlets

Notes around the house explain things (super helpful!)

Key lock box allows check in and out without involvement of the owner - easy to come and go

Of note:

Main room with large bed gets a lot of light at night from the street light - I wedged pillows in the long narrow windows to block the light, but light still came in through the front door (bring an eye mask or something to temporarily cover the window)

Has a standing shower, but no tub

Neighbors have dogs that bark at other dogs (one big dog is tethered occasionally in his/her adjoining fenced yard; the other dog is a small dog that stays indoors - neither are aggressive, just barked when I let my dogs out, which I'm used to - wasn't a problem, just be aware)

Steps were a little tricky for my 15-20 lb. terriers, but they got used to them quickly

My dogs and I were very comfortable here and enjoyed our stay! We will definitely book Martini's Mansion on our next visit!!
