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.

About Linn Fallon

I have enjoyed living in this area since purchasing the property and since I travel so much in the summer would like others to experience the convenience to beach, restaurants, shopping , golf and all the Island has to offer.

Linn Fallon purchased this house in 2005

Why Linn Fallon chose Galveston

If you are a small group or a large family you will enjoy the different living spaces this home has to offer. Want to have some space from the kids? Put them in the upstairs comfy lounge with a game or a video as it is very well equipped yet close enough to monitor their activities. There is an extensive library of books, board games, DVD's and VHS tapes for your enjoyment.

What makes this house unique

Walk 4 houses down and you are looking at the Gulf of Mexico without paying the huge cost of a beach front home. Best of all, you are in the middle of town with all it has to offer. It is a short drive, walk or cab ride to have a fine dinner. We have a great movie theater and the Pleasure Pier is a great hit with the kids!!

Good house, needs some work

  • 3 of 5

We had family fly in from all over the US to meet for a week in Galveston. The location, price, and number of bedrooms of the rental were the main considerations. The house was walking distance to the beach and near the causeway into Houston. Unfortunately, the refrigerator never worked and, every day after talking to the owner, the part would arrive the following day (for several days in a row until we were gone). We never got our damage deposit back despite repeated attempts to contact the renter. Overall, the house was fine but the management leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt this way regarding the house. I had a manager last summer who is no longer responsible for working with the guests. I am the owner and have never spoken to you or nor do I require a deposit. Insurance is purchased at a much lower cost to my guests. The comments make me wonder if you have the correct house. I have never received any communications of any problems and have many happy repeat renters. Maybe you will look at the photos and give us another try if in fact it is here that you stayed. Again, I do not require a deposit therefore have no refund to give. Best, Linn

Great Base for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We can from as close as Galveston County to as far away as Illinois. Great location. We walked to the seawall and ate in restaurants nearby. Comfortable setting for recharging between sight-seeing events in and around Galveston Island with plenty of space to spread out for some private time even with a large group.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for a wonderful review. It truly is a great setup for large groups who still want privacy in the home! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the island.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 adults and 4 children and had plenty of room for everyone. Great house and beautiful furniture. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to friends. We loved the fact that everything was so close like beach,pleasure pier and the strand. The manager was wonderful and very helpful.

Labor Day 2013

  • 5 of 5

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.

Recent stay at VBRO

  • 5 of 5

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
