More Than Expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous property! The pictures doesn't give an accurate visual of how beautiful the place is. We were blown away at the size of the home. We enjoyed our stay and the bedrooms were large enough to accommodate all couples. The neighborhood is lovely, not to mention I attended the elementary school as a child.

If you're looking to really enjoy a peaceful vacation at an affordable price, do yourself a favor and book this property.

Galveston historic home

  • 5 of 5

Our three day stay was wonderful. Instead of just hitting the beach, we saw a different side of Galveston. We explored more of the historic areas and the local spots. It really was a nice change. Definitely will be a return trip in the future. House was spotless and everything looked great.

A comfortable home that has been lovingly restored.

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home has been so lovingly restored you feel like you are at home. The upstairs bedrooms are spacious and encourage good sleeping. The downstairs rooms are large, airy and well furnished. The front porch was our favorite place though. The weather was spectacular and we enjoyed watching the world go by.

The location was ideal for our weekend plans. It was an easy stroll to the seawall and a few short blocks to the strand.

Our family had a really good weekend in Galveston and this house was a big part of that. We will come back.
