ISLAND TIME BUNGALOW - GALVESTON GETAWAYS - HISTORIC

Galveston Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

The Island Time Bungalow is the perfect place to unwind during your Galveston Getaway. As you become acquainted with the island, you will realize no one gets in a hurry and everyone is laid-back. So, take off your watch, turn off the cell phone, relax and settle in to what the locals call “island time”.

Island Time is a craftsman-styled bungalow that was built in the early 1900’s. This home has all the modern conveniences while still maintaining its original charm. With two bedrooms and a full bath, the sleeping accommodations are plush and restful. In addition to the separate bedrooms, the living room, dining room and kitchen provide plenty of space to spread-out and relax.

Whether you are new to Galveston Island or a frequent visitor, there is always something to do. If you are looking for fun in the sun, the house is just two blocks from the Seawall with miles of sandy beaches.

Outdoor activities include swimming, surfing, walking, biking, bird-watching , fishing and golf. Family-oriented attractions like Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn and The Lone Star Flight Museum are just a short drive away.

For those who prefer less adventurous pastimes, there are plenty of low-key sightseeing excursions. Take a stroll downtown and sample the restaurants, pubs, antique shops, clothing, jewelry, art galleries, book stores and coffee shops. History buffs can enjoy a walk-about through the historic East-end neighborhoods, or take a guided tour through several historic house museums.

The Bishop's Palace, Ashton Villa and the Historic Grand Opera House (Texas's oldest) are just a few of the unique places you will not want to miss. Whether you prefer to explore the surroundings or just settle-in with a good book, the Island Time Bungalow is the perfect Galveston Getaway for you.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to stay here for our first wedding anniversary. We immediately felt right at home! This quaint house is very well-furnished and the kitchen came fully stocked. We felt pretty safe as well because both the front and back doors each had two locking doors. You're just a few blocks from the seawall. Matt was very friendly and easy to deal with - this was our first home-away experience. Overall, we had blast and would like to stay there again.

Just like home on the island

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I made this our home for January and February 2014. The house has everything that we needed for our stay. The appliances all worked really well and the washer and dryer are exceptionally large. The home has nice décor with tall ceilings and tall windows. The listing is accurate and the home is well maintained and in good condition. Matt is the perfect landlord, helpful but never intrusive. Within walking distance are many restaurants, the Pleasure Pier, the beach and shopping. The house has all that is needed for the kitchen including great cookbooks. We were there during the Mardi Gras celebrations. One of the parades went right past the house. We had a wonderful 2 months at the Island Time house. Matt has done a great job with this property.

Coolest little place on Galveston Island!

  • 5 of 5
What a neat place you have here. My wife and I wanted a quick get away for a few days before our baby was born, so we decided on Galveston, as we haven't been there in quite some time (and it wasn't a brutal drive from Austin). The house was clean and extremely well maintained as described. It felt so warm and welcoming the moment we walked in the door...pride of ownership definitely shows. Only a 2 minute walk, and you are right near all the action on Sea Wall Blvd, yet you are just far away enough from all the crowds to have a very quiet and relaxing time at the house. Matt was very helpful in recommending restaurant favorites and making sure that we had everything we needed. Next time we plan a stay in Galveston, it's a no brainer...we will definitely stay at Island Time Bungalow. Thanks again for making our stay a wonderful experience!

Wonderful week on the island and very close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
W enjoyed our stay for one week in this comfortable cozy home close to all the sights of the island and the beach! The owner thought of just about everything you would need to enjoy a stay on Galveston Island and if I return I will be sure to book another stay here as you can walk to the beach and shops and restaurants quite easily. This is a very charming home which is just exactly like the pictures! You are close to the action but will also enjoy a quiet night's sleep which is the perfect combination when vacationing! The owner takes good care of the property and his guests but is not intrusive. He even called and left a message about a sailboat regatta so we could be sure and see it from the beach if we were so inclined! The price is reasonable for a stay on the island so I would highly recommend this home to anyone planning to visit the island.

Great spring break getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here three nights over spring break and thoroughly enjoyed this charming bungalow. Everything about the pictures is accurate. The owner is very responsive and accommodating. The linens and towels were very nice and beds were comfortable. The home was spotless and the kitchen is well stocked. We enjoyed drinking our coffee on the front porch in the morning. The home is a two block walk to Seawall Blvd. and the beach and close to many restaurants and the grocery store. Our favorite meals were at The Mosquito Cafe, check it out for brunch ... the french toast is SO good. We would love to stay here again.
