Private Homes house description

The Brown Pelican Guest House is named in respect for the native Eastern Brown Pelican that fishes our coast daily. Built in 1928, this charming house is nestled in the Historic Fort Crockett Neighborhood of Galveston’s military past located in the central area of the island. The upstairs portion of the house offers two bedrooms, each has a queen sized bed and twin sized trundle beds.
Only a block and a half from the beach, you can see the ocean from the second story of the house. Just a short drive to all seawall attractions, including restaurants, shopping, fishing piers, bike and jet ski rentals, and the newly opened Historic Pleasure Pier! Less than a ten minute drive will get you to Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens. The Strand Historic District offers walkable shopping, eateries, and bars. The island also offers many historic mansion tours and has several museums.
For extra room see the VRBO listing for The Gulf View Bungalow listing #402246 for details about renting our other guest house on the same property. Also see our new listing on VRBO and Home Away at The Seashell House listing #509073.
