My husband and I began our vacation with a 5 day stay at the Seashell House.

  • 5 of 5

The house is so comfortable and homy that we hardly wanted to leave. It is beautifully decorated-exactly like the pictures!! Bill is a wonderful host and we could have sat and talked with him for hours and hours. He truly loves Galveston and honestly knows the history of the island. Listen to his tips! I only wish we had had an ocean view but we knew when we rented that we wouldn't. Unless you stay in a hotel, you just don't get that in Galveston. Anyway, I digress. Book the Seashell House - you won't be sorry. We can't wait to go back...

Best location. Super short walk to the beach. Walk to Nick's, Gaido's, Salsa's.

  • 5 of 5

Bill is an awesome host. Loved the layout of the apartment. Nick's had a great happy hour and we had so much fun renting a bike taxi and cruised the seawall to Benno's. Will definitely stay at the Seashell house again. We stayed 4th of July weekend and the fireworks were really close on the beach by this place!! Great beach area too!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Seashell house. The decor is beautiful. So many lovely things to look at. Great kitchen and bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Well stocked place with everything you could need. Really appreciated the magazines, books, pamphlets, menus and maps. The location is perfect. Close to Gaido's (make sure you dine there!). Bill is a wonderful host and makes you feel at home. He is very friendly, helpful, informative and kind. Thanks, Bill, for providing us with such a perfect refuge for a couple of days!

We were sad we had to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little space! It was gorgeous, cozy, and had everything we needed. Though the house is close to many fun attractions and restaurants, it still feels quiet and very private. Bill was nice, helpful, and very accommodating! I would definitely choose to stay here over a hotel any day! I'll be recommending this place to family and friends :)

Super Nice and Accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Ralph and I (Donna) stayed here last year (2014) for the Lone Star Rally, and fell in love with this place. It is absolutely the cutest little place to get away. I was in awe when we arrived there. So, we immediately let Bill know we wanted to book again for the rally in 2015, and hope to continue renting this place annually!!! I highly recommend it to everyone.
