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!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved Martini's! We did a long weekend (fri-mon). It is cozy, cute, beachy, and we loved the location. The yard was perfect for our little beagle mix dog, too; it has a nice, secure fence and the landscape is lush! There are palms that provide shade and a many flowers, including a gorgeous hydrangea (my fav). The property manager lives close by, which is a nice perk. We didn't need him for anything that came up during our stay but he is friendly and we saw him often, he always asked if all was well with the house, etc. They provide you with easy instructions on arriving and check in/out & provide some nice essentials like trash bags, dish soap, and a plethora of towels! It was nice not worrying about having enough clean towels, especially at the beach! The beach is an easy walk and we recommend Benno's at the end of the street for lunch. It's also a quick drive to the downtown/strand area (like 1 mile). We hope to make Martini's our new summer tradition spot!

We absolutely love Martini's Mansion. The first year we went as a couple. The last 2 year we had 2 kids in tow. The perfect size for everyone. We love the location, which is easy access. It's close to everything. The perfect getaway!

Comfortable, quaint and fully stocked

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights - the beds are comfortable and the house has everything you need for a vacation. the location is ideal- short walking distance to the beach and some restaurants. We appreciated the fact that the owner purchased a hairdryer at our inquiry - very accommodating and responsive! We also enjoyed the side-yard, the privacy and serenity was wonderful. I highly recommend this property!
