About Carlos Rangel

We are both BOI (Born On Island).

Live in Houston, TX - many of our friends and family still live on the Island. We frequently visit Galveston to spend time with family (and enjoy the beach and awesome restaurants!)

Carlos Rangel purchased this house in 2003

Why Carlos Rangel chose Galveston

We renovated this house to have a home away from home just minutes from the beach. We would like to share the experience with you!

What makes this house unique

The front porch and upstairs private balcony are perfectly suited for relaxing, feeling the gulf breeze and enjoying the sights and sounds of Galveston's Historic Seawall.

Vibrant colors and beautiful original hardwood floors create a relaxing getaway for you and your family/friends to enjoy!

Walking distance to many Galveston Attractions.

Family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband stated "this house could not have been any more perfect!" We had 5 adults and 4 children and had friends over for a BBQ one night. Lots of room for us all. We never felt that we were crowded, the house is roomy and with the front porch, back deck and upper balcony, lots of places to sit outside as well. We will definitely be returning! A great experience for our family!

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of friends. Everyone was comfortable, plenty of space for 8 adults! Nice back patio for hanging out. Great location! Plenty to do in the area, including the pier just blocks away! Check out was easy, which is always nice! Would certainly recommend and would stay here again!

Perfect location, great space

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location (two blocks from bars, restaurants, the beach). Plenty of space for what we needed. Liked that we were able to fit 3 cars in the driveway and 2 out front so parking was not an issue. Neighbors were loud on the first night which kept half of the house up too late (we were staying here for a fishing trip and had to wake up at 5AM on Saturday morning and this kept a couple of people up until well after midnight). Would definitely look at renting again the next time I'm in Galveston.
