Galveston Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Efficiency one bedroom apartment with kitchenette, 1 bath with shower, sleeps 2

Restored in 2006, this 250 sq. ft. efficiency apartment is packed with character. Ammenities include a kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave, and electric hot plate, with asst. small appliances and utensils/ serving ware for your convenience. The bath features a spacious shower with marble topped vanity. Breakfast table with seating for 2, plush queen sized bed, and 32' flat screen tv w/ blueray dvd player finish out this island hideaway. Bathed in a panorama of natural light, the simplicty of the painted shiplap walls with refinished antique heart pine floors create an aura of calm and relaxation that you will not find in a cramped impersonal hotel room. Take in the ocean breezes and sounds of the surf from your own small private deck. Satellite tv, and wireless internet services are provided. Small charcoal grill on premises (BYO Charcoal)

The Hideaway is built above the carriage house of a 1914 Craftsman bungalow which is located on the opposite end of the property (see Homeaway listing # 905922). The properties are screened from each other by the lush plantings of the garden setting. Whether in search of quiet and reflection, a romantic get away, or simply an alternative to a conforming hotel room, the Island Hideaway Carriage House can provide the ideal setting.

Galveston has an impressive fourth of July celebration (fireworks display are set off at 37th Street jetty 3 blocks away). Beat the crowds by enjoying the display from the comfort of your own private deck, or at the very least , steps from your doorway. Thanksgiving and Christmas are another ideal time to be on the island. The summer crowds have thinned out, the weather is mild (bordering on awesome), and the atmosphere is laid back.

If it is raucious fun and the excitement of the crowds that you're looking for, then come down for Mardi Gras (several Mardi Gras parades march down this section of Seawall Blvd. for two consecutive weekends prior to the beginning of the lenten season. Spring break, Memorial Day, or The Lone Star Bike Rally (usually the first week of November) offer additional opportunities to catch the Island at it's peak, but make sure to book early.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as advertised. It was a beautiful place to stay for my wife and I's second anniversary. There were snacks provided along with water in the fridge and coffee for the mornings. It was very clean and a very comfortable. We will definitely be back. My wife loved looking at all the beautiful plants and she really fell in love with the place.

I absolutely LOVED it!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
3 words..." I absolutely loved it!" I want to tell you that it is horrible and not to go there ( for my own benefit for sure)....but I cannot tell a lie. Beginning with the lush tropical garden, you suddenly feel a calm that makes you want to forget any stresses. The studio is just the right size if you want to go alone to relax, or to bring a loved one because its" truly romantic". Southern charm as its best! The owner went above and beyond making us feel welcomed as we walked in the door. Gourmet coffee, fresh water and lots of wonderful snacks amongst other surprises, it just kept getting better! The bathroom was supplied with the amenities that you would usually take on a trip with you, so leave your shampoo and conditioner at home! Walking distance to the beach and local hotspots, I did not even use my car once. Like I said its horrible ;) I have now found the place for my annual getaway. I cannot tell a lie.

An adorable cottage, just minutes' walk from beach

An adorable cottage, just minutes' walk from beach
  • 5 of 5
They exceeded our expectations with this cottage! We pulled into the adorable bungalow and were greeted by our favorite snacks inside (how did they know?) It is small and quaint, perfect for a single or couple to get away. Not being familiar with the geography or location of Galveston, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that this cottage was in the perfect location for us! While other tourists were paying daily for parking by the beach, we walked to places like Pleasure Pier, Joe's Crab Shack and, of course, the beach! It was great exercise and very convenient. There were more than enough towels and paper products and nice, cozy blankets. The lights outside the cottage were a little bright at night. The interior is modern and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay!

Adorable carriage house close to the Seawall

  • 5 of 5
Adorable! Exactly as pictured and described. When you look out the windows you feel like you're in a little tropical resort. Gorgeous landscaping. Clean, cute, well-maintained. Very comfortable bed. Owners very VERY quick to reply to emails and sent detailed check-in and check-out information. Had the chance to meet them; they're very nice. Great amenities. Walking distance to the Seawall. Enjoyed The Spot and The Brick House Tavern, good food in walking distance. Great place to have a nice, long run next to the gulf. Easy to get a $7 taxi to the Strand.

Great getaway spot!

  • 4 of 5
Fantastic little spot. Great for a getaway and as launching off point to explore Galveston and surrounding areas. My wife and I found the place to be extremely well supplied and designed to maximize the little garage apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to a future trip!

This cozy island carriage house retreat is nestled on the edge of a quiet corner lot in a lush tropical garden setting. Near the Kempner Park neighborhood of old mid town Galveston, we are 2 blocks from Galveston's seawall & beaches. The neighborhood is a quiet collection of bungalows just off the beaten path of the more 'tourisity' parts of the Island, but still in the middle of activity. Island favorites 'Queen's Bar-b-que', 'The Spot ' Restaurant and bar, 'Brick House Tavern', 'The Gumbo Diner' and 'Joe's Crab Shack' are all within 3 blocks along Seawall Boulevard. Island landmark 'Gaido's' Restaurant is 5 blocks farther south (39th Street at Seawall). The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier built over the gulf is 9 blocks east (25th street at Seawall Blvd. The Downtown Strand historic District and cruise ship terminal are within a 5 minuite drive, while Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn water park are an approx. 15 minuite drive west.
