ISLAND CARRIAGE HOUSE RETREAT 2 BLOCKS TO BEACH

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.

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!

Thank you so much for everything! The new microwave worked great - loved the new full-length mirror!! Dickens on the Strand put us in the holiday spirit and the carriage house was a cozy treat to "come home" to each night. Booking the weekend gave us something to look forward to and we hated having to leave on Sunday. Thanks for everything again - we'll be back soon!

Took the wife to Galveston for our 27th anniversary. The Carriage House was perfect for the two of us! All items were exactly as described. The house was very clean and a large amount of amenities were provided. The deck is great for getting fresh air, and you will definitely notice the fragrances from the garden area. It is a short 5 minute walk to the beach, and of course nothing is very far away on Galveston Island. It's in a great location, a very quiet neighborhood, and it's very accessible. Two thumbs up and I will certainly see if it's available when I return to Galveston again.

Map

Car: necessary

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.
