The Galveston Trolley Tracks are right in front of our home and the Trolley is now OPERATING! This will provide great transportation to and from the Strand.

The City of Galveston is constantly working to promote the island and providing a safe family/friendly environment for all our guests to experience. Please visit to see a calendar of all the upcoming events.

We want all of our guests to enjoy our fabulous heated swimming pool, however, please understand that the owners take no responsibility in or around the swimming pool.

The City of Galveston REQUIRES us to have them for our swimming pool. They are for your safety as well as ours, therefore, PLEASE do NOT tamper with them. We truly thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Our property is completely fenced with an electronic gate. We provide a gate opener to all of our guests. Please feel free to put this in your car as you are coming and going from our property.

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a perfect location for a small family get together. I can't think of anything else I would have wanted in a rental property!!! The property was fully stocked with anything and everything we could have wanted my only regret was that we were too busy to spend time in the heated pool.

Perfect place for the situation.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated 20th anniversary with close family and friends. I search a ton on properties before choosing this home. The house was beautiful and charming. The space was abundant and the swimming pool was a nice added touch. I don't normal give reviews, but this house and the land owners so deserve high 5s. I will be looking to reserve this space in the future.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our daughters first birthday and it went above and beyond all our expectations! The house is so cute and well decorated. The setup was nice with the rooms upstairs and entertaining downstairs. Everything was provided from trashbags to linens. I wish I could give this rental 10 stars!!

The house was wonderful and decorated beautifully. Kids loved the pool and patio. Easy walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for all and space to spread out if you need a break from togetherness. Anything we may have needed was there.
