                  Owner info

                  About the owner: After restoring several historic homes in Galveston and Houston, my husband and I fell in love with this wonderful historic craftsmen bungalow. We wanted to go with a fun beachy vibe to make this home the perfect beach bungalow.

                  Why the Owner Chose East End Historic District:
                  We love Galveston because of the beach (of course) but we also love that there is so much history in this city. There are numerous historic tours of homes and other sites throughout the city. There are art galleries and lots of shopping for antiques and great food. There is never a dull moment with some festival or another going on every weekend.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This property is a few blocks from the beach as well as the new Pleasure Pier and a 5-10 minute drive to historical locations, the Strand and Pier 21. Yet it's also very quiet at the house if you just want to have a relaxing quiet vacation or enjoy time with family and friends.
