  • Great Place!

    "First of all i want to say that Stacey is a wonderful host, she is easy to talk to and very friendly, the apartment was very clean and spacious, my mom is 82 years old and we gave her the king bed, i was a little concerned about having her walk upstairs to her room but the steps are only a few and she had no trouble getting up there. The grounds and plants around the complex are very well kept and i even talked to a couple of the neighbors that live around there, they were all very friendly. Only thing i can think of that would need attention to would be the TV's, the one in the living room would lose signal every ten to fifteen minutes or so, it was a bit annoying trying to figure out what happened in the movie every time it would lose the signal, also the TV in the bedroom had no sound to it, it really wasnt a problem since we were hardly ever at the apartment, but Stacey can you please look into this for your next guest? Im sure it is something very minor that you will take care of, my mom and brother and myself still give it a 5 rating and we would love to stay here again. Thank you for having us, we will be back! :)"

  • Luxury Retreat

    "Our family, including my 5 year old grandson stayed a week at this wonderful vacation house. The house is luxurious - top of the line appliances and finishes. (The pictures don't do it justice) The lower level has a murphy bed, but we used it as a "media room". I enjoyed "coming home" to this house after the short walk to the beach or when we went fishing. It is 15 minutes from Port Aransas and 15 minutes to the causeway. (Try Snoopy's restaurant by the causeway) Very quiet and the views are great. I enjoyed sitting on the porches in the early evening watching the sun set. We all enjoyed the hot tub which was very clean and refreshing. You can see the ocean from the dining room or from the porch right outside the kitchen. There is a lot of sea weed, but we spent a few minutes raking a path to the surf and then it was fine. The beach is not crowded and my grandson spent hours building sand castles. The house and property is well-maintained and very clean. The owner ( Mr. P.) was very helpful and quickly answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who needs a luxury retreat on the beach."

Galveston Travel Tips

Galveston, a Texas coastal city on an island just southeast of Houston, is an excellent vacation spot for families, history lovers and those looking for a little rest and relaxation on the beach.

Family Fun

Moody Gardens

This stronghold of education and family fun is a mainstay on any trip to Galveston. Its main attractions are three giant glass pyramids. A towering Aquarium Pyramid with exhibits related to geographic areas like the South Atlantic, which hosts a penguin encounter, and the Caribbean - home to thousands of vibrant tropical fish. Head to the Rainforest Pyramid to see funky-looking free-to-roam saki monkeys and macaws, or see special science exhibits at the Discovery Pyramid.

After you’ve soaked up plenty of knowledge, see a 4-D film at the Special FX Theater, immerse yourself in an interactive film at the Ridefilm Theater, or head outdoors to bask in the sun on the Palm Beach lazy river and water rides.

Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier

The perfectly named Pleasure Pier is Galveston’s boardwalk, complete with rides, games and excellent dining options. Fearless big kids will love the Iron Shark roller coaster and Pirate’s Plunge, tiny tots will love the carousel and everyone can take part in old-fashioned carnival games. Head to Fish Tales or Bubba Gump’s for family-friendly dining.

Galveston Island State Park

This excellent 2000-acre state park is about a 25-minute drive from the city of Galveston. Come here to enjoy the quiet, sandy white beaches. Rare birds are frequent visitors here, because the Galveston Island is a unique, undeveloped barrier island habitat, so keep your eyes peeled for interesting species as you take a walk through on the salt marsh and prairie trails in the northern part of the park.

For the History Buff

Galveston is home to many excellent historical sites, several of which are located in the famous Strand Historic District, which encompasses the area between 20th and 25th streets near the harbor.

Historic Homes

Though the inside isn’t open to the public, if you’re an architecture buff, visit the brick mansion, Ashton Villa, located at the corner of 23rd and May Streets in the historic district and built in 1859. Take a tour of the lavish, castle-like Victorian mansion, Bishop’s Palace, built of stone and steel in 1892 and located on Broadway Street. You’ll also want to consider seeing the Samuel May Williams historic house, which was built in 1839 for its namesake and is the second-oldest home in Galveston

Ships, Trains and Planes

Galveston is also abundant in military and transportation history. Visit Sea Wolf Park at the very tip of Pelican Island to see two ships with military history: the Cavalla and USS Stewart. The Cavalla is a decorated WWII submarine that serves as memorial to the USS Seawolf, which sunk during WWII. The USS Stewart also served during WWII and is one of only three destroyer escorts in the world.

For an amazing experience, visit Pier 21 to take a ride on the fully-functioning tall ship Elissa, built in 1877.

You can also visit the Galveston Railroad Museum, located in the historic district at 25th and Strand streets. Kids are bound to love this excellent museum as well. Aside from some pretty cool locomotives, it features some fun statues sitting on old train station benches for a perfect photo opportunity. The Lone Star Flight Museum, adjacent to Galveston’s Scholes International Airport, is another great option with several impressive old planes both indoors and out.
