A 1928 TWO STORY HOME THAT SLEEPS 8 ONLY A BLOCK AND A HALF FROM THE BEACH!

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom house with queen bed and single trundle bed in each room.

The Brown Pelican Guest House is named in respect for the native Eastern Brown Pelican that fishes our coast daily. Built in 1928, this charming house is nestled in the Historic Fort Crockett Neighborhood of Galveston’s military past located in the central area of the island. The upstairs portion of the house offers two bedrooms, each has a queen sized bed and twin sized trundle beds.

Only a block and a half from the beach, you can see the ocean from the second story of the house. Just a short drive to all seawall attractions, including restaurants, shopping, fishing piers, bike and jet ski rentals, and the newly opened Historic Pleasure Pier! Less than a ten minute drive will get you to Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens. The Strand Historic District offers walkable shopping, eateries, and bars. The island also offers many historic mansion tours and has several museums.

For extra room see the VRBO listing for The Gulf View Bungalow listing #402246 for details about renting our other guest house on the same property. Also see our new listing on VRBO and Home Away at The Seashell House listing #509073.

GREAT RENTAL!!!

  • 5 of 5
We found this home while looking for something to accommodate two family's. It is one street off of the sea wall so an easy walk to the beach or restaurants. The house itself looks to be built in the 20's or 30's, so the historical aspect was very cool. Inside looks to be professionally decorated and styled. We spent most evenings cooking and playing with the kids in the beautifully landscaped back yard. The home was very clean and seemed well maintained. We would use this property again and recommend it to friends.

My family and I had a great time at this home. This was our second time staying at this home and we would definitely stay again. Everything was as described and pictured. The house was nicely decorated and the bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The rental process was very easy and fast. Everything was as expected.

Fun Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place to stay. It looks just like the photos and was also very comfortable. It was so nice to be able to walk to the beach and is conveniently located. We only stayed two nights - next time we will stay longer! I would definitely recommend this location to my friends and family.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week w/ 2 small children (1.5 & 6)at this house and we loved it. The house is clean and has everything you need at it. The 2 bedrooms are huge and will comfortable fit 4 adults per room. The owner is friendly and helpful. The location is great for the island attractions, shopping and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others. If you do have small children make sure you bring a baby gate to block the stairs( that's what we did and it worked great)
