Hello, We're from Kingwood, TX. With our son away to college and our daughter out in the working world as a nurse, we're now empty nesters. On the other hand, our daughter recently us our first grandchild!
I grew up only a couple of hours away and was fortunate enough to spend time in Galveston at least once or twice a year. My husband is from North Carolina, but he got to Texas as quick as he could 20 years ago!
We both love to travel and have been to several countries and scenic spots over the years, but we keep returning to Galveston for the charm and laid back atmosphere. It's our little get away from it all place.
We have been coming to Galveston to the beach for several years. But we recently realized that Galveston had so much more to offer than just its beaches which are nice. We began taking our bikes with us and started riding through all the Victorian Era neighborhoods, the Seawall, the Strand. Soon we started spending every weekend possible exploring the island and its rich history. We also found that staying in a house was much more relaxing than staying in a hotel. When we came across this adorable vintage 1889 Gulf Coast Style Cottage on a quiet street just around the corner from the Seawall, we knew it was a place that we would love to own. It has been so much fun putting our personal touches on it and finishing out the attic bed and bath rooms. We love the old wooden floors everywhere, the soaring high ceilings, and the beautiful little staircase leading up to the attic dorm rooms and we hope you do too!
