This Galveston beach bungalow style house was built in the 1930’s and sometime during the 1940’s it was divided up into several 1 bedroom ‘shotgun’ style apartments.
The house, Oasis, now has three beautiful but distinctly different apartments, each one took on their own personality and feel as we restored and furnished them.
We referred to apartment #3 as 'Equinox'
In Equinox we took the existing two small apartments and recreated a beautiful open and welcoming 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. Equinox sustained the most damage during hurricane Ike so during the remodel we were able to get very creative with how we rebuilt the apartment. The name Equinox came from the incredible balance that we were able to create with the old and the new architecture. The apartment also has the perfect balance of stone, wood and glass giving it a comforting and relaxing feel that you may find hard to leave.
You may find you get so relaxed that you don’t really want to drive anywhere for dinner, which is no problem, because there are several restaurants and bars and the Pleasure Pier within walking distance.
You will find the apartment perfectly located for all the island’s activities. A block away is the Historic Pleasure Pier, beach and seawall, and since you can see the water from the porch you will know right away if you should take your surf board or fishing pole. In the opposite direction, downtown is less than 2 miles away. It’s a healthy walk or pleasant bike ride through the beautiful Silk Stocking district. In my opinion, the best way to view island’s amazing houses and buildings is on your bike, so bring it along!
