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.

The house was spectacular. The tall ceilings and crown molding are beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The house and neighborhood were excellent. If I owned the house I would convert the downstairs parlor into a master bedroom and the laundry room into a master bath. The house is incredible, but I feel that would make it an even better use of space and added private retreat.

I would love to own this property, but I would want to live there full time! I recommend this rental to anyone. Dawn was wonderful to work with.

We will stay again. We come to Galveston at least once a month and this is now at the top of our list for return rentals. The home was very clean and inviting.

Thank You,

Kellie McClinton

Beautiful home and memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous inside and out; so much history and character. My family loved getting to learn a little of the history of the house, as well as some of Galveston's history. The location of the house is fantastic, as well. Just a few blocks from both Broadway Ave and Seawall Blvd, so the access (The Strand, the beaches, restaurants and cafes) was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Dawn was incredibly responsive and helpful, and the house was in beautiful condition. We'd love to come back to Galveston in the future, and if we do, we'll definitely try to book here again. We can't recommend it highly enough!

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.
