Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, the playground across the street is perfect for families. The house is near the seawall and close to all the downtown activities. It was a wonderful place to stay and fun town to experience this spring break!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful home just blocks from the beach and close enough to walk to the beach, the Strand, and Bishop's Palace. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again next time we are in Galveston.

A Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home to stay in. It felt like we were in an B and B but had it all to ourselves! Galveston has many good places to eat in the neighborhoods and we enjoyed walking to many. We have always stayed on the beach before but discovered we loved the historical homes and gardens of the neighborhoods. Besides being immaculate, the home is furnished comfortably and accented with antiques. One does feel they are living in "A Bygone Era", only with great wifi and a large flat screen TV! The front porch to sit on and watch the world pass by was a bonus. Although February, there were some 80+degree days and the dual-zone, central air kept us cool. Dawn was a pleasure to work with. We will definitely return soon!

Historical character

  • 5 of 5

The house retained a lot of it's history in the décor, very appealing. Comfortable setting and closely located to most areas of the city, including downtown and the seawall. Will stay again as our travels permit.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this beautiful home justice. The house is very clean and the grounds are meticulously groomed. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a playground across the street - I would love to bring my grandson back on my next trip. My trip to Galveston was a last minute decision and Dawn was very accommodating. I would not hestitate recommending this home to friends and family .

A wonderful historic home that survived the 1901 Hurricane.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful historic home. The house is appointed in beautiful and interesting antiques and reproductions. The location is central to a large variety of restaurants, amusements, parks and the ocean. We would definitely stay at the home again.
