Perfect for our trip to the coast!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I took trips to the beach every year for many years and always stayed in hotels. A friend suggested staying in a rental instead and what a difference it was! We enjoyed the Gulf View Bungalow so much. Perfect location -- proximity to the beach, restaurants Pleasure Pier and food stores. Bungalow is quaint and cozy; has cable TV and WiFi, as well as other amenities for a longer stay. Very clean! Bill was great to provide some history of Galveston and the bungalow, and to share a book of menus from local restaurants. Will definitely return to this property for future getaways!

Can't wait to come back! Adorable space- immaculate- coolest owner / host ever! Adios to hotel stays in Galveston- this is the only option. Truly the perfect escape from the city and reality! Beach is a 2 min walk away though the gulf breeze and view were also enjoyed from 2nd story deck/patio here! I can't say enough about the stay -come see for yourself! The owner is a gem and went out of his way to accommodate my super late arrival and also shared local insight and recommendations. Exceeded my expectations in every single way. In my best Arnold Schwartzenegger -Terminator- voice ..."I'll be back!"
