THE PELICAN PAD - 2 BLOCKS TO BEACH AND GAIDO'S RESTAURANT

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

This wonderful home was built in 1950's - 2800 square foot of comfortable living. All the charm of a house of that era yet all the modern conveniences we have come to expect today. She has 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs, 1 on the main level), 2 baths, and wonderful new state of the art kitchen, large lounge and dining on the main level and a second lounge/den upstairs.

For smaller groups, you can rent the downstairs only. 1 bedroom with futon in lounge - sleeps 4. See rates for pricing.

Want to relax outside? There's a nicely landscaped cozy patio in the rear with a charcoal BBQ, table and chairs. Or if you prefer, a front patio on the 2nd floor.

Want to relax at the beach? Then you're just a short 2 block stroll and your feet will be in the sand.

Conveniently located to all that Galveston has to offer including the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, The Strand, Schlitterbahn Water Park and many restaurants and bars.

Off-street parking for up to 4 vehicles.

We truly enjoyed our stay! We had a family of 9 adults and 1 baby and were very comfortable with the bedding arrangements! The house was two blocks from the beach, Gaidos, a coffee place, an ice cream place, and multiple bars! What more could you ask for? We truly loved it and felt right at home.

The house was clean; very well stocked with kitchen items as well as ample linen; and had a wonderful array of books for all ages. The house has good quality furniture, and has been renovated with quality materials. We were ten adults and two children, and found the house capacious and comfortable. We really enjoyed our time here (2 1/2 days), and would go back again

After Wedding Retreat

This house was perfect for my friends get away after my daughter's wedding. We had plenty of sleeping space for 6 adult friends & all glassware & kitchen stuff was sufficient - although it would have been nice to also have a blender. Karen was very helpful in walking us though the house to start and accessable to answer a question about the internet once we were settled.The house location was great-so close to the beach; very convenient. The only thing that was not in our favor was the weather. No matter how great the house the object is still to be at the beach. But we were very comfortable while waiting out the showers. The next time I have reason to rent a beach house I will definately return to the Pelican Pad.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good experience with The Pelican Pad. We do have a wonderful collection of kitchen ware most wouldn't expect in a rental and we're glad you enjoyed your time on the island. Thanks very much for your review and we look forward to your return!

This house really accommodate 8 people, it has 3 bedroom and a small room that 2 kids can sleep there. I think this house should have more pots and pans since we like to cook there and there was not enough for cooking for the entire group. It has a power problem, every time you put microwave to work lights go down. Kitchen is updated and pretty. House is very well located, we walked from the house to the beach, it has a very nice location. It is not fenced all the way around so we have a problem with our pet that runs away… then you need to consider this comment.

Owner's Response: thanks so much for your review. More pots and pans have been added to the kitchen for large groups to cook. The power turned out to be at the pole and was the responsibility of Centerpoint and was fixed within an hour of a phone call to them. We hope you enjoyed your island visit and will return to The Pelican Pad!

Pelican Pad Review - Virginia Travlers

This was our first experience at renting a VRBO home and visiting Galveston Island. We enjoyed the house and manager attended to all our questions. We had some trouble regulating the air conditioner and the wireless was tempermental. The home was nice and we were able to find what we needed to cook. The location was perfect and we could walk to the beach and swim in the warm ocean. We were perplexed why the downstairs bathroom had no curtains but we tacked up some papers and were fine.
