Overview

About the property

Our home is located in the historic East end of the island. This cozy bungalow is within walking distance to the beach, close to many restaurants and bars and lots of great shopping. We are on a corner lot with street parking available as well as a single car garage.

We remodeled this home in 2012. Every detail of the home has been taken into consideration. We put in a sidewalk and driveway. We resided and painted the exterior. We restored all the sash windows and landscaped the front yard.

My husband and I love to cook. Our home is equipped with lots of cooking utensils, pots and pans and gadgets. There is a charcoal Weber grill for our guests use. Pick a lime from our lime tree for a delicious beverage after a day at the beach.

The home is fully furnished with linens, towels, blankets and pillows, etc. We have provided boogie boards, sand toys, umbrellas for our guests. There are also a couple of beach cruiser bikes that our guests may use. There is a surfer shower located on the lower level that comes in handy after a day on the sandy beaches.

We have tried to think of everything.

Just pack your suit and come for a relaxing time on Galveston island.

About Amy Watts

We came to Galveston for Spring break and fell in love with this island and the people. We decided to buy this home to share with friends both old and new.

Amy Watts purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Amy Watts chose Galveston

When we walked through the doors the first time, we knew we had found our family vacation home. It is comfy and cozy, the location is ideal and the neighborhood is friendly.

What makes this bungalow unique

The beach is 2 blocks away from this home. Captain Jacks, Sky Katz, The Pier Club, The Sunflower, Mosquitos,Gumbo Bar -are all within walking distance. Not all neighborhoods are created equal, but this one is very safe and pleasant.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Red House! We had 2 couples, 2 babies and a 9 year old. We had plenty of space with the 3 bedrooms and open living area. The deck was large and great for relaxing, the breeze there was very nice even on a hot day. We loved having the outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach! There's bikes and a lot of beach equipment in the basement which many would find useful - toys, chairs, umbrellas, kickboards. Plenty of towels were available, and it was nice to know there was a washer and dryer if we needed it! The wifi worked great, as did the AC - we were actually quite chilly the first night. The owners were very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had prior to booking and during our stay. The location of this house is fantastic, only a short walk to the beach and restaurants - with the babies and all of our stuff we opted to drive. There is street parking available along the beach right at the end of the road for a reasonable price. We enjoyed going to this beach, the other beaches further East looked to be much more crowded!

Great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with babies isn't always the easiest task but Amy & Greg's home was perfect not for just 1 family but 2. The bedrooms were spacious enough to comfortably put up a pack and plays for both babies and my older son loved the smaller cozy room in the back.

The location was perfect, literally a 2 block walk to the beach and pleasure pier. Everything you needed within walking distance is amazing for a beach trip and the price is unbeatable.

Amy was quick to respond to and concerns or inquiries we had and was very understanding and reassuring with all questions.

Would definitely stay here again if we get the chance to go back to Galveston!

LOVED Our stay at The Red House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time during our stay at The Red House. This house is laid out well, comfortable, the kitchen has all you need, great a/c, wifi, wonderful deck with lights and comfy chairs. It was so nice not having to eat out on vacation (especially with four teenagers). The outdoor shower is a MUST have in Galveston and the one at The Red House has plenty of privacy. There are plenty of towels, beach and bath towels, a washer/dryer and plenty of extra blankets. It's a short walk to the beach, they have skim boards, boogie boards and bicycles (all of which were used daily). The neighborhood was quite and we loved hearing the wind blow through the palm trees that surround the property. We spent a lot of time in the house due to Tropical Storm Bill and the kids were able to have their own space to go hang out. We will definitely be back next year.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We took our toddlers on our first family road trip this past summer, and we were lucky enough to find this gem of a house. We were naturally nervous about how well the girls would sleep having never been away from home, but they instantly felt so comfortable that it was never a concern! My older daughter still periodically asks when we can "borrow our beach house" again =) Even though it was the worst year on record for seaweed (WHOA, it was something), we had a truly amazing experience. The house is so well maintained, so comfortable, and has so many creature comforts--from kitchenware to supplies for the beach. And being able to keep up with our laundry and take clean clothes home--there just aren't words for how wonderful THAT feels! Thank you so much for making our first family vacation such a hit!
