Beautiful house in great location. Very clean and welcoming. Lots of comfortable beds and bathrooms.
Loved the home’s charm and location. Walked two blocks to Hotel Galvez to enjoy music. 10 minute drive to anywhere on the island. Fun place to enjoy a birthday weekend!
I love it
I would like to rent it again next years . Really close to everything in town. House is very comfortable
We really loved staying at the house. It was extra special that it was a historic house. It was neat to think about what it was like to live at the house around the turn of the century. We loved that it was just a short walk to the beach. We had a great time especially at sunset. It was really nice to sit on the porch swing and take in the breeze. The owners are great. They had everything ready for us and were very responsive to any questions we had. They went above and beyond to resolve a minor issue and paid for our parking fees that we were unexpectantly charged by the city. We'd love to go back again sometime.
Perfect home to stay in Galveston!
Such a cute, cozy, and quaint home! It was perfect for our family getaway! Many wonderful amenities and anything you could possibly need to make your stay comfy and convenient is provided. The beach is very easy to walk to and many other attractions are nearby. The owners are very courteous and very prompt in responding to any questions. We highly recommend this home if you are traveling to Galveston!
