Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home as a way to celebrate my 30th birthday; there were 8 adults and 4 children. The home was very spacious and we never felt cramped or lacking personal space. The layout of the home is exactly as the owner shows in the layout and we were able to sleep 12 people easily. The home was built in the early 1900s and has all the charm that you would expect in an older home. The kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled but the house still has an historical feeling to it and the wooden floors creek in places like you would expect in an older house.

It rained off and on during our stay but it didn't detour us from enjoying the beach which is literally a block away. The front porch was a huge hit with my family and I think we spent more time out there than in the house itself. The sea breeze can be felt from the porch and you can see all kinds of seabirds which my father really enjoyed. The game room and the bunk beds in the adjoining sunroom were a huge hit with the kids and provided them with things to do as the adults prepared dinner in the large open kitchen. As it was NBA playoff season, the guys also enjoyed the 42" TV in the dinning/entertainment room and the gas/charcoal grill in the back yard. The shower in the downstairs bath is perfect for rinsing sand off when you come back from the beach and can be accessed easily by the back door without dragging sand throughout the house. The upstairs bath has a jetted tub which the kids and adults both loved.

There is a small grocery store and liquor store just a block west of the house and was great for picking up things we forgot. If you would like souvenirs, Murdoch’s is just a block away on the beach. We also enjoyed a trip to Moody Gardens, shopping at The Strand, a banana boat ride at 10th & Seawall and took the free ferry over to Port Bolivar and back (and yes we did see dolphins!). We didn't have enough time to enjoy Pleasure Pier but it was easily within walking distance.

The owner was so helpful in answering any questions I had and provides a very detailed list of things to know about the home upon checking in. He was always accommodating and quick to respond to my emails. I would also like to add that the home was extremely reasonably priced for the location and amount of space provided and I would definitely recommend to friends, family or anyone looking to have a great time in Galveston.

Tons of space and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space for my family and friends of 14. AC cold, all necessities provide, including Wifi. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and bars. Beds were comfortable and clean. Owner was quick to respond and super friendly, even allowed my Boston terrier to join our vacation. Only downside was the lack of a backyard, but the huge front porch made up for it. Would recommend this house to others. Thanks you Rudy for the memories we had at your beach house.

Senior Trip

There were 15 of us and had more than enough room. The house was excellent and we are already planning another trip. Everything we needed was right there. House was clean and we'll furnished for our needs. Will recommend this home to anyone. The property owners were awesome and answered all our questions. Great home.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Ave P house. It was clean, well stocked, and had plenty of room for our whole Girl Scout Troop. We loved being able to walk to many of the destinations that we were going to.
