A step back in time
This my first Christmas as a widow and I wanted to treat myself to something special. Have always been satisfied with VRBO pet friendly rentals and this was something special. From my welcome cookie and kitchen gift to the beautiful home decorated for the holidays, it was comfort plus. Connie and Jim were perfect hosts and the gas fireplace made for a cozy stay even though the weather was unusually cold during my one week stay. I live one hour from here and used to own a restaurant on the Strand, not far from here. I especially liked the kitchen here and how it was equipped. The laundry room was very handy and even had supplies! I will return here again probably with my cousin and his wife from Austin who love Galveston. Happy New Year to the Porters!
Nice older home with many amenities
The owner, Connie, was very communicative and easy to work even with our late arrival time. The home was clean and was centrally located, which made it easy to get to our destinations. We were even able to walk to a couple of places. We were pleasantly surprised by the home baked cookies waiting for us in the kitchen! Thank you, Connie!
The beds were fine though I felt we were lacking blankets for the futon beds. We did not contact Connie because it wasn’t that big of a deal; she did state over and over that we should call if we had any problems. I loved the fact that the unit had a washer and dryer which came in handy when my daughter decided to jump in the water at the beach. Oops!
Overall, a good home base if you want the amenities of a home while you explore Galveston.
Clean, close and comfy.
This home is so close to the beach, yet far enough to have solitude. The home has everything you could ask for and the fact that it was pet friendly was a huge bonus. Ample room for people and pets with two full bedrooms with TV's for privacy and relaxation. The neighborhood was walkable and safe.
We've stayed here previously and always enjoy it! Great house in a wonderful location, hosts are so very pleasant and helpful. This is our go to location whenever we have the opportunity to visit Galveston! Rob and Vicky Strange
Interior of house is very cute!
My husband and I stayed at this property with our dogs for a couple of days and it was very comfortable and convenient to both the beach and The Strand. Connie, the owner, was also very helpful.
Great location and home
This property was perfect for our weekend stay. There was plenty of sleeping space for 3 adults and 2 kids (and a large dog). The kids loved the fresh baked cookies the hosts left us when we arrived. You are able to walk to Pleasure Pier and the beach. The yard was fenced and perfect for letting the dog out. The front porch is covered with a couple of chairs and the neighborhood had sidewalks that allowed for a nice walk. The hosts were quick to respond to all my phone calls and messages (and even come over to check on us when we had a question). We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!
This home is located in the Historic silk stocking district 4 blocks from the beach and Pleasure Pier and less than a mile from the Strand shopping districe
