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 as always!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Martini's Mansion. Last summer was our babymoon trip, this summer took our 5 yr old and 7 mo old. It was the perfect place for both trips. We plan on making this an annual trip for our family. We walked to the beach each day, perfect distance. The neighborhood is clean and right in the middle of everything you need. We highly recommend staying here!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Martini's Mansion was the perfect spot for our family (me, 2 kiddos and a small dog)! We wanted a place in town that provided beach access. This cute little place met all of our needs. It is walking distance (4 minute walk) to the beach/Seawall and you are close driving distance to The Strand and all of the great architecture in town. The house is very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. I also appreciated that there are TONS of towels. We stayed Wednesday - Sunday and still had plenty of towels, even after spending everyday at the beach.

We loved it! Will book again :-)

It felt like home. Very easy to find. We only ran into one small problem and the owner was very friendly and fixes the problem quickly.

Perfect little house!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Martini Mansion! It is in a great location, close to the beach and anything else you could want to do on the island. This place provided everything we needed during our visit. Tia is very nice and gave us all the info needed to make our stay simple and easy! And Rex was very helpful as well. Very comfy and cozy! Would definitely stay here again.

Nice home near the beach

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very nice, although I somehow missed the fact that there is no stove - be prepared to be creative in cooking! All in all it was a very nice stay. Very clean and I would totally recommend!
