About Sharon Mathiews

We have always enjoyed staying in the private bed and breakfast homes and wanted to offer our home town of Victoria this type of home for others to enjoy. It has been a dream of ours for many years to have this type of business to offer to others to relax and enjoy in. With this busy world today, it is good for everyone to just slow down and enjoy themselves and each other at some points in their lives. If its a romantic get away you need or just a peaceful place to relax, our B and B is the place for you!! We offer all the amenities of a fine hotel with the privacy of your own home away from home. If you live in Victoria or from out of town, it is perfect place to enjoy and relax for yourself or with each other!!! It is our goal to make that happen!!!

Sharon Mathiews purchased this house in 2012

Why Sharon Mathiews chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose this home because we saw the potential for the happiness it could bring to others. We had a vision and it turned out exactly the way we thought it would. It was build in 1914 and is a completely refurbished home of a bygone era. It has a few dents and dings that makes you wonder of all the life that has been cherished in the home. Original hard wood floors hide all the secret happenings of the past underneath. You feel a sense of comfort and peace as soon as you enter the home. I knew it was special from the start!!! You will too!!! Its a home you won't want to leave!!!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home when we saw it was located on a peaceful corner in historic downtown Victoria. It had the relaxing inviting look of a old home with still so much to offer. It needed lots of work done to it and we knew we just could not let die the life of this home that still had so much to give!! We knew it would be the perfect place for a peaceful relaxing stay. We added a 7 foot fence for extra privacy even though it is not close to other homes. Beautiful old trees and vines add shade and a special touch to the home. It is now alive again and ready to give someone that special feeling of happiness they so need!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A house has a life all of its own. It was conceived in the mind of a man or a woman and put on paper by an artisit. The artist shared the dream with the craftsman who pounded each nail and carressed each board. It was lived in by young and old and those just starting out. Its walls have heard laughter, arguements, the cries of babies and the sounds of broken hearts. A house remembers all the triumphs and tragedies, happy beginnings and bitter endings. It keeps all its secrets hidden under the floors or behind a door. Listen closely at night for that is the best time to hear the house tell of its life.

Surprising Retreat in Victoria

  • 5 of 5

Why would anyone stay in a hotel when this lovely residence is available in a very charming and historic neighborhood in Victoria? The owner has thought through every detail to make your stay relaxing and memorable. Start with the fresh homemade cookies waiting for you and then add in the relaxing music, comfy robes and enticing hot tub and you have the makings for an unforgettable stay. The wife and I enjoyed cruising the neighborhood on the complimentary bicycles and admiring the many grand homes! Close to downtown and the classy Pump House restaurant it is in the perfect location. We look forward to returning!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful weekend getaway. The house had everything we could have needed. Very clean and well kept. There was soft music playing and a small gift with a sweet note waiting for us when we got here. We will absolutely be back and will recommend this to anyone looking to get away.

A thoughtfully curated slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Spent one night here and wish we had stayed longer! Sharon's B&B is filled with love and you can see and feel it everywhere. Little touches such as a cute place mat for our dog, lots of local goodies, a fully stocked fridge, and beautiful, relaxing music (that we never turned off...wish we got the name of that CD!) made a huge impact. The stress just melted away! There were even cute little notes thoughtfully placed to answer any question you might have. This is a very special home with everything you need, and then some, for a wonderful and restful getaway. Full of character and comfort! We topped off the night with a soak in the incredible bubble tub and woke up to delicious coffee, juice, cereals, local pastries, and more (a la Sharon!), followed by taking advantage of her cruiser bikes to explore the gorgeous historic neighborhood with our dog. Every other minute, we would look at each other and say "this is our new go-to spot!" and that it will be for all future visits to Victoria, availability permitting!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such kind words. We are so happy to hear everything worked out peaceful and relaxing for you. That is our ultimate goal and the reason we opened up this private B and B. Come back anytime you need more "Serenity". The CD that we play for our guest is called Amalfi. Which means A Peaceful Natural Escape. You can find online at

Enjoyed sitting on the deck, listening to the birds and drinking my morning coffee.

We also liked the walking in the neighborhood, it is full of old mansions and trees.

Quiet Time

  • 5 of 5

We visited Victoria and spent a day here at the Inn. It was thoughtfully decorated and provided a quiet and serene atmosphere. The owner was kind to approve and accommodate our kids, even though the home looked specifically catered to couples. Our kid was excited to see the little cupcake in the kitchen.

Its quite close to the Victoria Zoo and located amidst the historical houses. If you are looking for time away from maddening city noises and relax, this is the place. We could even hear birds chirp in the morning!!!.
