Overall the house had essential necessities however the house is filled with antique furniture and decor. The owner informed us after our stay that her antique daybed/lounge was broken. No one in the house even realized that a chair was broken or else it would have been mentioned and we would have brought it up to the owner to pay for it immediately. We were there on a small church/spiritual retreat! I can only imagined that if we indeed broke it, it was simply due to sitting on it and because it's old/antique it easily broke without us even realizing it. Here's the hard part to swallow...because it's an antique it cost $300 to fix! Be warned....if you do stay in this house there is the potential to pay a large sum of money if anything gets damaged because it houses antique fragile furniture. I would rather stay in a house with modern comfortable furniture and not be on edge the whole weekend about possibly damaging furniture and then having to swallow up the expensive cost to fix it! I will never book again.

Owner response: This is true - they broke my antique day bed. I do collect a $500.00 security/damage deposit. I had it fixed - it only cost $200.00 and I returned $300.00 to them. I just check - they got $300.00. This is why I always collect a damage deposit. In the seven years that I have been using VRBO on my Galveston Private Home, I have only had to take part of the deposit a couple times. THIS IS WHY I TAKE A DAMAGE/SECURITY DEPOSIT. I am also Catholic and I was so happy to have the Catholic Youth Group. Needless to say, I was disappointed that they were not more careful. Sue Pellegrino, Owner

The house was great for a family gathering. The large living room downstairs and the front porch steps were fun places to sit and visit. There was plenty of sleeping space, and the kids enjoyed the attic playroom.

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.
Owner response: Welcome families. We love having children visit with their parents and grandparents.
We held a family reunion in this house the week of July 4th, 2007, with family from Humble, Austin, San Antonio, Albuquerque, and Cleveland. It was great. The kitchen was large enough for meals we cooked at home. The round dining room table was ideal for serving and seating. We enjoyed walking to the Bishop's Palace and the Strand. Nice location. A/C worked very well, even in the attic/playroom; very important on hot & humid Galveston days! Plenty of room to spread out. Nice furnishing. We highly recommend this charming historic home!
