Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights

Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Are you the kind of person who just feels better when you can look at the water? The kind of person who feels calm just thinking about the soft waves slapping the sand, and the distant sound of seagulls?

Don’t just think about a great beach getaway—live it. And live it in the comfortable elegance of a fully restored Victorian in one of Galveston’s oldest neighborhoods.

The Gulf Lady in Galveston is located just 1 block from the beach—you can see the sparkling Gulf from the home’s upstairs porch. Just as lovely is the view of the spectacular Galvez Hotel, located just two blocks away. Walk to the hotel’s famous brunch, or schedule some alone time in their newly opened spa.

Despite its great location, there are lots of reasons to never leave the house. The Gulf Lady is a turn-of-the-century charmer with lots of period details. Pocket doors, hardwood floors, clawfoot tubs, and gorgeous stained glass are just some of the surprises you’ll find in this lovely home. The welcoming entranceway is painted in the same shade as the Galvez’s lobby area—a wonderful nod to the home’s close proximity.

But this house isn’t stuck in the past by any means. You’ll love the modern updates—including a chef’s kitchen, central air conditioning, free wifi, and flat-panel televisions. You’ll feel comfortable whether you’re relaxing in the family room, visiting on one of the home’s multiple porches, or lounging in front of the luxurious pool.

The house sleeps up to 10, with three bedrooms upstairs, a queen-sized flexsteel sofa bed in the living room (there is a full bathroom downstairs for any guests with mobility issues), and a comfortable daybed/trundle on the upstairs landing. In addition, we provide a pack-and-play for our younger guests.

We are pet- and smoke-free, to accommodate our guests with allergies.

About Barron Lozano

I manage the property for the owner, my mother. She is a retired Veterinarian and former US Merchant Marine radio operator. She loves living by the ocean and sharing her home with the many guests who have come to visit from around the world.

Our family has had many happy times in this home and we hope that you and your family and friends enjoy it as much as we have.

Barron Lozano purchased this house in 1998

Why Barron Lozano chose Galveston

My parents wanted to live near the ocean. They also were interested, from the start, in owning an older home with character and history. Our home is 110 years old and fully renovated. They added some new touches after purchasing the home and added the pool a few years later. It is a very homey place with lots of "old world" feel, all while offering the comforts of a modern home.

What makes this house unique

The high ceilings, original floors, and woodwork and touches (such as the stained glass windows) make the home a special place for us. There is plenty of room to spread out around the house. You will love the upstairs porch, where you can curl up with a book or just hang out and look out over the water.

The backyard is inviting, with the sparkling pool and the long porch. My family lives in Houston and we always enjoy getting away to our home in Galveston. Our children have many happy memories of their time with Mooma and Pawpa. We hope your family will as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Close to beach/pleasure pier/ awesome private pool!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Clean and spacious, large enough for big group, had everything we needed in kitchen! Loved that you could walk to beach and pleasure pier! It's like a 5 minute walk. Having your own private pool is so great with kids and not having to share with other condo goers is a huge plus!! We will defiantly be returning here!!!

Great Location and Beautiful Spacious Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family began our summer with a trip to Galveston for a family wedding reception at the Hotel Galvez. I am so proud that we chose "The Gulf Lady". It was the perfect place! The beautiful home has everything you need with a nice swimming pool, too. The location is wonderful. From the house, it is only 2 blocks to the beach! Barron, the owner, was very friendly, kind, and answered my questions promptly. We will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Gulf Lady! It has become "wedding central" lately, as we have two upcoming groups staying with us who will be hosting weddings at the Gálvez. We enjoyed sharing our home with you and hope you will come back again soon. The Gulf Lady
