I grew up in the area and always loved spending time in Galveston as a quick getaway with my family and friends. My dad worked as an entertainer in Galveston and surrounding areas his entire life and his logo was 'Almost Famous' One Man Band. So I passed on the name to my new vacation house!
Lara Coursey purchased this house in 2012
There are so many attractions and things to do without the big city feel. Galveston is laid back and fun for all ages and groups. I recently bought and remodeled this quaint little house so things are fresh, new and comfortable. Me and my dog, Honey, love spending time here!
When I was looking for a vacation home, I wanted to be in Jamaica Beach where it's quiet, safe and close to everything you need. This neighborhood is very friendly and clean and so is the beach. The front deck looks over the green grass and the breezes are so relaxing. With the conservatory down the street, it's a great place to watch the wildlife, relax and take in the views!
This is our first year as snow birds we are staying here for five months. I would highly recommend this house to snowbirds. We love this house. Lara has been the perfect host. Bedrooms are small but all we need is a bed and night stand but the rest of the house makes up for it. There is so much to do on the island and so close to the house don't have to deal with Houston traffic. Thank you Lara this has been the perfect house for us.
Noisy frig, to many wall scent dispensers, futons were uncomfortable so were beds but house was clean and if you like morning walks the bay was very close and made for a nice walk.
What a wonderful surprise Almost Famous was!!! The house was so clean and so cute. There was a great breeze too so we could sit outside and enjoy without roasting :-) The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfy, and the AC was cold which is what you want in Galveston in July!! We would definitely recommend and return to Almost Famous! Thank you for making our girls getaway a success!!!
When we first arrived we were delighted to find a cozy house that was clean and well kept on the inside. Plenty of room for the 5 of us (4 adults, 1 child and 2 dachshunds). The bedrooms were on the smaller side but the beds were VERY comfortable. Lots of amenities and we loved having a grill to use on nights that we didn't want to go out. Overall it was a great place to stay and we will definitely be back!
Schlitterbauhn (open year round), Moody Gardens, the Strand and the brand new Pleasure Pier are all just a few minutes away! Golf cart rentals are available to ride around town and see the sites. The public boat ramp is around the corner, and the conservatory is close to sit, relax and watch the wildlife.
