We have offered our home to guests for 8 years and only receive top reviews.
As an owner/manager I also ensure our guests receive the same attention to detail that I have in my own home.
Our home was built in 1886 and is a 1900 Storm Survivor. We are centrally located in the heart of the Lost Bayou Historic District.
Seawall Blvd with the beach, restaurants, activities and the Pleasure Pier are just 8 blocks away and a 2 minute drive.
We are also just 8 blocks to the Historic Strand District.
Families with children are welcome for relaxation and to make special vacation memories.
Although the house has been updated with modern amenities, all guests have commented on the tranquil atmosphere that exists when they walk thru the door.
We have off street parking for 2 vehicles. Parking is also available on the street.
Three bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath are located upstairs.
A sofa sleeper with an extra comfortable mattress topper is located downstairs in the study. A bath with shower is also available downstairs.
The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking implements and dishes.
Just bring your clothes and enjoy everything our home and Galveston has to offer.

Beautifully furnished historical home
Beautifully furnished historical building in the heart of Galveston. Close to downtown and to sea wall. Very comfortable and well furnished house. Nice neighborhood. Shuffleboard at Sonny’s across the street not to be missed!
Thank you! We enjoyed having you as our guests also. Sonny's is very popular with the locals. Great atmosphere and Junior (the owner who is in his late 80's) is a joy. Has been there about 60 years and has great stories to tell.
Deja vu of my memories of New Orleans
This home is the perfect venue for a casual family get together. It feels cared for and just "right". The attention to detail in renovating this classic deep south home is comforting. The decorations recall past memories of anybody older than 45. There are some informative displays to reinforce the historical perspective. The heat and air worked fine. It's not too close to the beach to be caught up in "beach" traffic and parking. It was far better than staying in multiple rooms in a hotel. I grew up in New Orleans and it looked and felt like my fond memories of the "Big Easy".
Thank you so very much. I am so very glad that you enjoyed our home and hope you return and stay with us again!
Perfect Home to Have an Adult Family Reunion
The accommodation was delightful with lots of charm. It was perfect for adults. Plenty of places to sit and visit and close to both the seawall, beach and Strand. We saw something new each time we went into a room. Be prepared - you will like it so much that you will not want to leave!
Thank you! I love sharing our home and so very glad you did not want to leave. I so appreciate you as our guests, you were wonderful. Hope you return soon.
Galveston get away
Great Location. Very comfortable home. Will definitely stay here again.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you as our guests soon. I know I say it often but we try very hard to ensure our guests have all the comforts of home.
Delightful home base to enjoy Galveston Island
Our stay at Bygone Era could not have been better. Ms. Wilson's charming and comfortable home was just right for this senior couple, our daughter and her three pre-teen boys on Spring Break. Easy access to numerous beaches for Wisconsinites to warm up and recreate. And a terrific park with playground equipment for creating and competing on "American Ninja Warrior" courses right across the street and watchable from the front porch was enjoyed for parts of each day.
Walking to The Strand and through historic and fascinating neighborhoods in every direction made our vacation one of discovery and wonder, as well as appreciation for the trials and determination of the people of Galveston. The area homes and other buildings provided endless delights of architecture, landscaping, decoration, collections, diversity and recovery.
Bygone Era's three bedrooms are comfortable and lovely. The first floor living room and dining room served the 6 of us well and the kitchen is wonderfully supplied and equipped for food storage and preparation. Ms. Wilson has set up everything to assure understanding and use of the home and is readily available by telephone to deal with any questions. Should our travels bring us back to Galveston, we will definitely seek to book another stay at Bygone Era.
Thank you again for being such great guests! I so enjoy sharing our historic home. We try very hard to ensure our guests have all the comforts of home during their stay. I do hope you will visit Galveston again.
