                          Year Purchased: 1992

                          About: I've made Galveston, TX my home for 30yrs. I've raised my children here and have made my life in this small but big-hearted island community.

                          Why San Jacinto District:
                          This has been a family home for 20 plus years. The kids are out and the home has been renovated and updated to fit the needs of vacation renters.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I enjoy listening to the catholic church bell ring on Sunday mornings, the call of the seagulls during the summer and to the gulf as it stirs and the waves crash. My children enjoy being able to walk to the beach as they have for many years and if you have an active family like ours even walking all the way to The Strand while looking at the old Victorian Homes of the East End District. We enjoy good old fashion barbecuing. We also enjoy walking up to the Seawall to watch the Mardi Gras parade pass and throw some beads. Many things are to be enjoyed in this vacation rental but more than that it's the time spent doing what you like with the people you love.
