The perfect place to stay in Galveston! 06/11/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


The bear family had a fantastic stay at Villa Bel Mare in Galveston! We traveled with another family, for a total of four adults and five children. The home was perfectly set up for a group of two families. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with bathrooms. The master bedroom has a large closet (with an air vent) that had a futon mattress and pack and play, along with extra bedding storage. The little closet was perfect for my two year old to sleep in! The master bedroom is also very large and carpeted, so there was plenty of room for a child in a sleeping bag there as well.

Downstairs is the living space and another bedroom with two full size beds, a full bathroom, and a TV/ DVD player. That bedroom worked well for the children. The living space is open, with two tables/ chairs plus barstools, so we had plenty of dining space. There is a large deck off the downstairs, with six deck chairs and a table/ chairs set. We spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the views.

The house had everything we needed, and it was very clean when we arrived. There is a grill outside, which we used every day. There were also plenty of dishes, serving dishes, and grilling tools. My favorite touch was the mini LED night lights around the home, which were great to put with the children at night.

The beach is about a block away. It was wonderful! We were there during the week, and it was not crowded at all. There was always plenty of parking right by the beach walkway entrance, in case you want to take coolers and other beach gear. We set up a beach canopy in the morning and left it up all day, even when we returned to the house for a midday break. We also left some chairs and other items with the canopy, and it was all there when we returned.

There is wide open space all around the home, so there are great views in every direction of the ocean and bay sides. You can see both the sunrise and sunset!

Galveston Island boasts 32 miles of relaxing beaches, superb restaurants, marvelous downtown shopping, numerous antique stores, incredible art galleries, fabulous entertainment and one of the largest and well-preserved concentrations of Victorian architecture in the country.

Galveston is a small romantic island tucked deep within the heart of south Texas possessing all the charm of a small southern town and just 40 minutes south of Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States. The island is 32 miles long and two and a half miles wide.

From soft sandy beaches to famous 19th century architecture, the island is surrounded with incredible history and unique beauty.

Recommended attractions include: The Broadway Beauties: 1859 Ashton Villa, 1892 Bishop's Palace,1895 Moody Mansion which portray early 20th century family life among Galveston's elite; The Grand 1894 Opera House ranked among the nation's finest historical theaters; the Texas Seaport Museum & 1877 Tall Ship Elissa highlighting the history of the Port of Galveston; The Great Storm documentary detailing the 1900 hurricane which killed 6,000 and changed the Island's history; the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum; the Railroad Museum in the restored Union Depot; Harbor Tours offering dolphin watching; theLone Star Flight Museum & Texas Aviation Hall of Fame housing one of the finest collections of restored aircraft and aviation exhibits in the nation; Moody Gardens featuring a 1.5 million-gallon aquarium pyramid, a 3-D IMAX theater, tropical rainforest pyramid, and a Ridefilm Theater; and the new year-roundSchlitterbahn Waterpark - the first facility of its kind, and a wonderful family destination.

Getting around the island is easy. You can travel by land, sea and air via Treasure Isle Tour Train,The Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, Galveston Island Ferry, Galveston Duck Tours, Galveston Harbor Tours, Galveston Island Tours, Painted Lady Tours and aerial tours through our local airport, Scholes International Airport. If romance is what you're yearning for, try an after-dinner ride by horse-drawn carriage through the downtown area at dusk.

Galveston Island is a virtual 'nature preserve' and one of the top locations for birding in the United States. With more than 500 species of birds residing, wintering, or migrating through southeast Texas, the Galveston Bay Estuary is the largest and most productive on the Texas coast. Watch local birds from the back deck - Cranes, Cormorants, and Roseate Spoonbills just to name a few.
