About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Go back in time with a stay at this beautiful bungalow located in the Historical district of Galveston. Completely refurbished with soft, bright colors and fun furniture. You'll find everything you need to make you feel at home. Get a real feel for the island when you relax on the covered front porch that runs the entire width of the home. Conveniently located in the center of Galveston, very close to the Strand, the new Pleasure Pier and only 9 blocks to the beach. The yard is fully fenced in. If you have a larger party, we have a 'sister property' down the street that sleeps an additional 4 people. See #630494.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: After restoring several historic homes in Galveston and Houston, my husband and I fell in love with this wonderful historic craftsmen bungalow. We wanted to go with a fun beachy vibe to make this home the perfect beach bungalow.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We love Galveston because of the beach (of course) but we also love that there is so much history in this city. There are numerous historic tours of homes and other sites throughout the city. There are art galleries and lots of shopping for antiques and great food. There is never a dull moment with some festival or another going on every weekend.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is a few blocks from the beach as well as the new Pleasure Pier and a 5-10 minute drive to historical locations, the Strand and Pier 21. Yet it's also very quiet at the house if you just want to have a relaxing quiet vacation or enjoy time with family and friends.
