About Owner

We live in Austin, TX and have alot of friends in Galveston. Since we travel to Galveston so frequently, we decided to buy a house and use it as a vacation rental in 2008. The house survived Ike and we feel really blessed to have had zero damage from that storm. We wish we could spend more time in our house, but then it wouldn't be available for you to stay in! :)

Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Owner chose Galveston

We really like this location because it's two blocks from the beach and two blocks from Broadway - the Historic District. Also, it's close to Stewart Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay. Great place to stay at the beach! It was so hard to wake up and explore because everything in the house was so comfortable. Hopefully we are coming back soon!

Perfect for our family of 4 and our dog!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I took a chance on this place. We got here a week after Hurricane Harvey and were a little worried about the condition of the house and the island. Tia was very helpful and willing to work with us on up-to-date info as well as travel plans from Missouri to her place. The house was perfect for our small family. It was very comfortable and they thought of everything. We had such a great experience. When we arrived Rex was waiting for us and very friendly and welcoming. We loved the location as we were a block from the beach and just blocks from everything that we wanted to do.

We loved the landscaping as we are all from Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, and Texas (military family) and miss tropical plants. Almost everything on the island was free due to the hurricane and we saved so much money. We have already agreed that we will be back at the mansion this year.

Great job guys. Thanks for such a wonderful experience.

The 1902 cottage is adorable and the yard and flowers make it pop. It provided for a perfect weekend and is in walking distance to the beaches, seawall, and restaurants.

Puppy Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Martini's Mansion. My daughter and her puppy had a great time walking/playing on the beach. We also loved the cooking outside after a long day on the beach. Having such easy access gave us a more comfortable experience. Having the fenced in area also gave our puppy a nice paradise with all the colorful flowers and the butterflies dancing around.
