  • Great condo!

    "First things first… this is a great place to stay in Galveston, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Maria was great to deal with in reserving the condo and providing any info we asked for. The condo is clean and well-furnished, if a little bit on the small side, and sits in a great spot on the island. You absolutely cannot beat the direct beach access, or not having to cross busy Seawall Blvd. That was one of my primary requirements in choosing a condo to rent, and it was the best part of the whole experience. The location, which is on the far south side of the island away from the crowds, also offers a bit more seclusion on the beach than some other spots. The large hotel to the north juts out into the water and effectively blocks off the beach to the left, limiting the traffic. We were down there half a dozen times, and there were never more than 8-10 people within a couple hundred yards of us. Granted, this was in October, not high season. But we were very happy with the amount of beach we were able to use. The pool was very nice, also not crowded. There were two hot tubs, including a shallow one just for kids. Great idea. The building, location and facilities were pretty much everything you could ask for. The one small complaint I have is that the photos from the patio don’t depict your actual view very well. The view to the beach is partially obstructed by the condominium offices, which are brightly lit at night. You can still see the beach and you can see the waves come in. But you have to look around some stuff and through some stuff. It definitely would not keep me from renting here again, but I think the photos should show the actual view instead of zooming past the obstructions. Again, that’s not a deal killer. This was a very nice condo and an excellent location. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely come back. Thanks, Maria!"

  • Great Getaway

    "We stayed in this house for a Girl's Getaway for my daughter's 16th birthday, and we all had a lovely time. The upstairs rooms are small but clean and neatly decorated, the kitchen was well stocked and complete with plenty of cookware and utensils. The downstairs apartment was a bit musty, and the window ac unit was a bit loud for my sleep comfort.The beach was a bit further away than we would have liked, having to cross a very busy street to get there. It was not clearly specified until we got there that the pool was not open until after Memorial Day, much to my younger son's dismay. Otherwise, we had a pleasant stay away from home and near the beach. This house is lovely and I am willing to go back to it someday, or try one of the other properties owned by the owners, who were easily accessible and replied to all of our questions beforehand."

  • Beautiful house / Central Location

    "This property is very well taken care of and is beautifully decorated. It has many wonderful amenities. The kitchen is so well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils that you could cook a 10 course meal. There were 6 adults on our trip and we could have fit 3-4 more people comfortably. There are 3 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen and 1 with a day bed/trundle bed) and 2 baths in the downstairs area and then there is a loft with bed and bath. The loft has a queen bed and another sleeping area with a mattress. The bath has a shower. There are 2 window A/C units in the loft. The rest of the house is Central A/C. The house is very centrally located just a couple of blocks from the beach (literally 2 minute walk) and a little over a mile to The Strand (my husband and his friend walked over, the rest of us drove and they got there within a few minutes of us parking). It is also approximately 2 blocks away from The Bishop's Palace, which is a beautiful historical landmark building. I recommend touring it. There is a Jacuzzi, which we used and it was very nice. Understand thought that there is an extra $150 charge if you intend on using the Jacuzzi during your stay. The house is a duplex and the caretaker for the house lives in the small apartment on the bottom floor. The upper 2 floors are the rental property. She was incredibly nice and other than check-in and check-out we never saw or heard her. I would highly recommend this property, especially if you are travelling with a group of friends and/or family. We didn't bring our pets with us, but my understanding is that you can bring your pet if you want. I'm assuming that there is an extra cost for that."

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.
