About the owner: Our property is personally owned & gently used by family from Houston, Tx. I'm in the environmental consulting business, enjoy art, decorating & our get-aways to the west end of Galveston. Happy to share our paradise with you - the best the island has to offer!
Why the Owner Chose San Luis:
Our family is from Houston & we enjoy the short trip to the island for peacful get-aways! With air travel aggrivations & hotel stays not attractive to us, we enjoy the West End of Galveston island with its proximity to attractive nightlife, sport & wade fishing & gourmet dining. The west end offers safe, pretty & family oriented, relaxation time!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dolphin Daze Galveston is a very unique construction that offers 4 stories & unobstructed views - the best on the island. Very peacful, quiet and romantic! Compare a hotel to our house for a family of 5 and you will find our pricing very agreeable & the resort experience much more enjoyable than a stuffy, overpriced hotel!
