About Owner

We live in Austin, TX and have alot of friends in Galveston. Since we travel to Galveston so frequently, we decided to buy a house and use it as a vacation rental in 2008. The house survived Ike and we feel really blessed to have had zero damage from that storm. We wish we could spend more time in our house, but then it wouldn't be available for you to stay in! :)

Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Owner chose Galveston

We really like this location because it's two blocks from the beach and two blocks from Broadway - the Historic District. Also, it's close to Stewart Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay. Great place to stay at the beach! It was so hard to wake up and explore because everything in the house was so comfortable. Hopefully we are coming back soon!

Galveston gem!

  • 5 of 5

Property was small but ideally suited to our needs.The home is pet friendly and comes with a small enclosed yard which allowed our two standard poodles freedom to explore the "wildlife" and do their business off-leash. The home is quaint and very well kept. Instructions on what to bring etc are quite clear so we only had ourselves to blame for forgetting coffee however, one does not have to go very far in Galveston for anything. Amenities like TV and internet worked perfectly well and since us and the dogs wanted for nothing we were very relaxed. Truly a gem for a couple or small family.

Amazing home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. We were in walking distance of most things we wanted to do. The cottage was beautiful we all the extra touches. The patio was my personal oasis. Loved It!!

Everything we needed and perfect location

Just a couple blocks from the beach and restaurants within walking distance. The house had everything we needed plus a fenced in yard for our dog. We had a great stay on our weekend getaway!

Perfect for a beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Martini's Mansion. This was the perfect little house for our family of four and our dog. They provided almost everything we needed and much more than we expected.

We used the charcoal grill for every lunch and dinner and ate in the outside while Ramona (our dog) played on the yard. Stewart Beach was about a 20 minute walk from the house so we packed a wagon and walked back and forth several times over our 3 day stay. Katie's Fish Market was a short drive away and we got some delicious shrimp for our last dinner in town.

Our stay at Martini's Mansion was the most relaxing vacation we have had as a family. Our son even asked if he could live there when he is older. We will be back.

One tip for the other clumsy folk of the world, wear shoes with good traction going up and down the stairs. I walked outside wearing flip flops right after a brief rainfall and fell down about 6 stairs.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you slipped on the stairs! We are addressing the "slippery stairs" situation. Thank you, Tia
