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.

We had a wonderful time in your house. It was very spacious. The pool was very nice and peaceful. We had a nice time in Galveston.
This was our 2nd year staying in the Gulf Lady House during the Lone Star Rally we absolutely love this house. This house has everything you could ask for it's like a home away from home it's located within walking distance of Please Pier and many many restaurants and shops and it has it's own private pool : ). I would recommend this home everyone looking to stay in Galveston.
We had 3 families stay at this home August 2016. It was very spacious. A gorgeous Victorian home. Home is just like pictures advertised. Pool is a little small, but was just fine for our stay. Barron was great, I was able to call or text her with any questions we had. The 2nd floor balcony was great in the evenings slight ocean view and great breezes. We would definitely stay at this home again.
My family and I had an absolutely AWESOME time at the "Gulf Lady"! The pictures don't do the home justice! The home is filled with history, with modern touches here and there. It was supposed to be a rainy weekend and it turned out to be a great sunny spring break! It was wonderful waking up to the sun beaming on your face, which was easy to do with all of the gorgeous windows everywhere! The house is equipped with everything you will need and more. There were 10 of us there but, the home is roomy enough to hold many more. The pool was a bit cold but it didn't stop us from enjoying it! Barron was a pleasure to work with and we even got to meet Barron's mother, Dr. Bennings, who was the cutest and the most adorable 95 year old I have had the pleasure of meeting. We can't wait to come back again!
Thanks so much for having us!
The Gulf Lady was a perfect vacation spot! We rented three homes in the area for a family reunion. The Gulf Lady was by far our favorite home-away-from-home. Lovely! The location is perfect, just a couple of blocks from the beach, Pleasure Pier, restaurants, and the Hotel Galvez. The rooms were spacious and beautifully appointed, but comfortable and easy to live in. There were 30 of us for dinner one night! The kitchen was well equipped for the task, and with the outdoor spaces and lovely downstairs sitting and dining rooms, plenty of room for entertaining our group. The owner went out of her way to answer our questions and make our stay a pleasure. We could not have asked for a more perfect week. Thank you for hosting our visit with grace and style! We will definitely be back!
Excellent property! Went for a girls weekend with a group of 9 and we had a terrific stay at The Gulf Lady. Convenient location a couple of blocks from the beach and restaurants. Small convenience store "Mo's" on the same block. Felt very safe in the neighborhood. We are planning on returning next year and making this an annual girls trip.
