About Sylvia Guzman
We have lived in the Houston area all of our lives and always loved spending time in Galveston, going to the Mardis Gras, Saturday evening 'Art Walks, 4th of July fireworks, Dickens on the Strand, fishing and just hanging out enjoying the beaches and wonderful places Galveston has to offer.
Sylvia Guzman purchased this House in 2008

James, I am so glad you enjoyed the house. As a 5 star guest, we would like to have you back.
The Victorian house is lovely. We recommend the property. All our needs were net. Would stay there again
Very nice guest house centrally located in the middle of Galveston
Property was as advertised. Sylvia was very responsive and professional. We had 3 couples staying and it worked out great. Kitchen was well stocked for us to cook breakfasts. Front porch swing was a hit. Easy access and parking. Recommended and we'll stay there again in the future.
A hidden gem indeed!
Loved our stay for a family Thanksgiving in this beautiful Victorian era home! The house is well restored, comfortably furnished, and had plenty of room for the 6 adults (2 couples and 2 singles) in our gathering. It definitely made a wonderful home base for a great holiday visit to the whole Galveston area. We would certainly stay here again if family schedules permit.
Paradise island resort
We loved our stay at the hidden gem!!! So close to everything , but not the noise. Plenty of room for everyone and loved the porches to sit on at nite. I highly recommend this beautiful house to every one looking to stay in Galveston. I would stay at it again when we visit there in the future.
Hi Tina, thanks so much for your complimentary review of our house. We appreciate it very much.
Sylvia was very gracious.
Relaxing, roomy, & quiet.
It's always time to be in Galveston to have lunch or dinner by the water, or spend a cool day shopping in The Strand. The house is centrally located, so it is only a short drive to shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, the historic Seawall, Moody Gardens and the West and East Beaches. PLEASURE PIER IS NOW OPEN!
