Overview

Texas Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom house with queen bed and single trundle bed (two Twins) in each room.

The Brown Pelican Guest House is named in respect for the native Eastern Brown Pelican that fishes our coast daily. Built in 1928, this charming house is nestled in the Historic Fort Crockett Neighborhood of Galveston’s military past located in the central area of the island. The upstairs portion of the house offers two bedrooms, each has a queen sized bed and twin sized trundle beds.

Only a block and a half from the beach, you can see the ocean from the second story of the house. Just a short drive to all seawall attractions, including restaurants, shopping, fishing piers, bike and jet ski rentals, and the newly opened Historic Pleasure Pier! Less than a ten minute drive will get you to Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens. The Strand Historic District offers walkable shopping, eateries, and bars. The island also offers many historic mansion tours and has several museums.

For extra room see the VRBO listing for The Gulf View Bungalow listing #402246 for details about renting our other guest house on the same property. Also see our new listing on VRBO and Home Away at The Seashell House listing #509073.

Great house, wonderful vacation!

The pictures do not lie, but the Brown Pelican is even better in real life. Comfortable, roomy, and with so many thoughtful touches.

Excellent Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a girls weekend and could not have been happier. The accommodations were excellent and the owners were so friendly. I have to say the beds were more comfortable than mine at home and I slept like a baby! We loved the convenience of walking across the street to the beach. Love, love, love.

Fabulous weekend!

  • 5 of 5

What a great weekend! Bill met me at the house and gave me a very informative tour. It was a very nicely decorated house. We felt at home and the owners were very gracious and accommodating making our stay exceptional. Look forward to coming back to visit again. Would highly recommend this property!

Awesome Time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time staying here. We were very pleased with the accommodations! The house was just the right size for our group of 8+ and we loved the vintage feel of it. The house was clean, comfortable, and very beautifully decorated. The location was great for walking to and from the beach, restaurants, and stores. Loved the convenience of the outdoor shower and foot wash after our times at the beach, as well. We also enjoyed grilling in the private, manicured backyard. Bill was very welcoming and helpful with suggestions for activities and dining out. Would love to come back and stay here again and would definitely recommend this property to others.
