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.

The Blue Wave house is very close to the seawall and within walking distance from many restaurants and bars. The listing is very accurate and was very clean. I would definitely recommend this property and would stay there again.

The location could not have been better.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The house had everything promised. The location was amazing within walking distance to the beach and The Spot.

Three nice size bedrooms, a bonus room with a sleeper sofa & Tv.

The master bedroom had a day bed with trundel for a couple with small kids.

Only drawback was neighbors to the back have a dog that barked all night one night and they blasted loud music the next night. But all in all we would definitely stay again.

Verified Stay

This was our family's second time to stay at this house, and we loved it! It's close to everything we wanted to see and do in and around Galveston, as well as being close to the Seawall. The house was clean and tidy and just as great as it was last year. We love this house and look forward to staying here again!

Charming home in great location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Carlos ensured a great stay. The house was older but nicely updated and furnished. Location was prime as it sat 1.5 blocks from the beach and near to the Spot Lounge and a short walk to Pleasure Pier (some of the attractions can be seen from the upper balcony off the Master suite). Highly recommend for a future stay!

Good Location/Budget Friendly

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This location was perfect for our group. Beach was a couple blocks away; Pleasure Pier was in walking distances, as well as many restaurants. The other area attractions were within 10 minutes such as Moody Gardens and the Strand. The home worked well for our group with plenty of space and extras. We would utilize this home again for a trip.
