We also have 2 additional parking spots in the front of the house as well as parking on the street. We are 2 blocks to the seawall, Murdocks, Pleasure pier, restaurants, activities, and only a few miles to The Strand. The Galveston Trolley Tracks are right in front of our home and the Trolley is reopening in 2017! 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 non-heated swimming pool, however, please understand that the owners take no responsibility in or around the swimming pool.

There are security cameras on the front door, viewing the swimming pool area, and the back parking area. ALSO, on the 2 back doors in the dining room, there are alarms that are VERY LOUD! 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.

Again, thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

charming home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very charming and met our family needs. It's location was perfect and convenient to all Galveston attractions. The back yard was fantastic, very beach-like and great for entertaining the family. The house was just perfect. I would definitely rent the house again. We rented the house over Thanksgiving weekend and could not enjoy the pool, just a bit cold.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautifully decorated and well stocked home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were plenty of dishes and cookware for the meals my family enjoyed together, and there were plenty of beds for all of us. We loved being able to just walk down to the beach whenever we wanted. We loved it!

Great Place,spacious, comfortable and welcoming....

  • 5 of 5

Our compliments go out to the owners of this wonderful house !! The decor is perfect, warm and comfortable, cool and relaxing. The reason for renting the house, I needed to have enough space to accommodate 14 people. You see, my daughter was getting married in Galveston and we needed a place for family coming in from, Cali, Montana, New Hampshire, Maine and from Houston.

The house definitely handled all our needs, breakfast, lunches or dinner were a breeze to prepare. Thank you for having everything one would need in a kitchen to handle it all!!! The large table made it great for gatherings. All areas were used, the front porch was great place to read the paper, {OK to check out face book} the back area was great !! We did get to swim a few times but, really enjoyed family gatherings outside by the pool. My family was so appreciative of all that was available to them that they didn't want to go !! I do hope that we can come again to enjoy this great and beautiful home.. I like to call it, The house with a little " spirit. " This is truly a wonderful place...

The house is absolutely beautiful!! It was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We had plenty of room for all of us, 6 adults and 4 children ranging in ages from 11 to 17. The pool was great!! We spent a lot of time just relaxing. We walked to Pleasure Pier and Murdoch's and the kids had a great time. We drove to the Strand one evening. The drive only took us about 5 minutes and we had a great time just exploring. There are a lot of historic homes in the area. Also, there was great communication with the owners. We will definitely be coming back next year!!

From the moment we walked thru the doors we were amazed by the beauty and attention to detail that the owners put into this home. It was flawlessly decorated, cheerful and welcoming. Even my children could not stop smiling because they were staying in such a gorgeous home! Kudos to the owners of this property, it is truly a gem and we look forward to reserving it again in the future!
