About Julie Hall

I have loved art and design most of my life.

In each bungalow type apartment you will see the enjoyment I get from designing each one with a different flare, encompassing it's walls with paintings of lithographs,.serigraphs, prints art creating a gallery feel.

Enjoying living in a neighboring type resort with it's serene atmosphere and lush landscaping enveloping in a environment of comfort, tranquility surrounded in nurtured created gardens.

Julie Hall purchased this bungalow in 1998

Why Julie Hall chose San Leon

The Mill House at the Windmill Gardens Inn is easily identified because of it's Icon a " Architectural Micro Tower 11ft.tall, 15+ diameter Sweeps Windmill "............. that sits on top of the roof.

Bungalow style units are nestled in a truly sub-tropical jungle setting, you will feel as though you have entered into a little bit of Eden, as the tensions of a busy world seem to melt away....the very moment you arrive.

What makes this bungalow unique

Close Enough To...Houston and Galveston

- yet -

Far Enough, Away........from tensions of a busy world.

Quick and easy access to almost anywhere in the major metropolitan areas can be accomplished in about an hour +/-, with the comfort of knowing your cozy tropical hideaway is still close by. This little island style retreat is indeed a jewel and the folks at Windmill Gardens Inn will make you feel right at home.

Julie is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately due to Hurricane Harvey we had to cancel our trip. But I gave this property 5 stars because although I didn't get to stay here, I know the property is beautiful and in a great location. Julie is the nicest person. She was so accommodating on our trip. First she let us postpone to the next weekend due to hurricane and then when we had to cancel due to flooding in Houston she was so understanding and gracious. Hopefully we will be able to come visit soon and stay in your beautiful Windmill Gardens Inn!

Exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property is AMAZING! The pictures just don't do the gardens justice. Perfect place to unwind, relax, pray, and meditate. Our living space was beautiful too, well kept with everything we needed. And the owners were very attentive and accommodating. I'm looking forward to our next visit. ;-)

Excellent Holiday location and a superb hostess

  • 5 of 5

Very little to say about this location, apart from fantastic, beautifully presented with the friendlist hostess one could wish to meet.

Minor updating of cutlery and a bit better internal lighting would have made this a 6 star :)

Would recommend this for any couple looking for a peaceful break that is close enough to the more traditional holiday areas like Kemah and Galveston. FANTASTIC

Owner's Response: Enjoyed having you as guests so much, especially having coming from afar like the UK It is always with great pleasure meeting people from another country, my son of which will be traveling out your way in June, has asked me to tell you thank you for the map, he greatly appreciated it and intends to use for their trip. So happy you had a good time getting familiar with some of Texas. Hopefully some day I get to see you again. Best regards, Julie Hall
