  • Such a perfect weekend getaway!


    This was an absolutely perfect stay with our adult kids for a fun weekend getaway! I loved the vintage furniture and the unique setup. I loved that it was historical but still sturdy. We loved that we were close to East Beach and the Strand. The hosts were aMAZing, even helping me out when I left something behind. We will hope for availability each time we revisit Galveston.

  • Nice roomy accommodation


    Nice to have lots of space. Could use a deep clean. Carpets not clean and vents covered in dust.
