Lovely house. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Only complaint among us would be the showers in the 2 bathrooms. Very small but workable. Location was great! Would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and hope to have you as our guests again. Bathroom and closet size in 1886 sure isn't what we are used to today! Take care, Dawn

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at A Bygone Era with 2 friends and it was a wonderful and very enjoyable home! All of us live in historic homes so this stay really was as if we were at home. Everything was so well appointed, extremely clean and comfortable. Great location. Walking distance to Bishops Palace. Dawn was very responsive to any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. For any future trips to Galveston, I will definitely stay here again. A real gem!

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.
