Property description

This Galveston beach bungalow style house was built in the 1930’s. Sometime during the 1940’s the bungalow was divided up into several 1 bedroom ‘shotgun’ style apartments.

The house now has three beautiful, but distinctly different apartments. Each one took on their own personality and feel as we restored and furnished them.

Apartment # 1 is lovingly referred to as 'Spice Island'. You will fall in love Spice Island's architectural features, from built in bookshelves, graceful arches to a stained glass window in the bathroom. Let the apartment's natural lighting and island breezes wash over you and transport you to simpler time and place.

The front porch is the perfect place to have a morning tea or coffee as you watch the sunrise over the water or relax in the cool evening breeze with a ginger beer or a vanilla shake.

Spice Island is perfectly located for all Galveston activities. A block away the Historic Pleasure Pier, beach and seawall awaits you. The view from the porch will allow you to know right away if you should take your surf board or fishing pole with you to the water. If the Pleasure Pier or beach is not on your agenda, a healthy walk or pleasant bike ride through the beautiful Silk Stocking district will take you to Galveston's historical downtown. Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark is a short 15m drive down the scenic seawall.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Restoring this house over the last 10 years has been a labor of love. We were almost finished with the restorations when Hurricane Ike set us back a few steps with flooding and a fire. After the shock of the hurricane wore off we saw that it was actually a blessing in disguise. We have since put in all new plumbing, electrical and we even have it set up with Wi-Fi. In an attempt to keep the 1930’s feel of the house we have restored as much of the original hardware, interior doors, wood floors, and tile as possible.
