About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (sleeps 4)

Built in 1914, this historic craftsmen bungalow took over a year to restore (not remodel). No detail was left to chance; using a forensic paint specialist to discover the original 1914 paint colors, we chose to paint the house in those original colors. The original woodwork has been beautifully restored. The house is filled with only the best high end linens and towels. Both bedrooms have king size beds for greatest comfort. This is a house that makes you feel good; it's a great spot for relaxing, re-cooperating and/or refueling. It's the perfect size for a family or 2 couples. The back yard is landscaped with a grill and seating for dining. Internet is included as well as smart TV for your Netflix or other on-line content (as well as free programming too). Staying in this home is similar to a stay in a luxury historic hotel (only cozier). If you have a larger group, we have a 'sister property' down the street that sleeps 8. See VRBO # 289207.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: After restoring several historic homes in Galveston and Houston, my husband and I fell in love with this wonderful historic craftsmen bungalow. We spent over a year restoring this one to its previous glory.

Why the Owner Chose Kempner Park, Galveston, TX, USA:
We love Galveston because of the beach (of course) but we also love that there is so much history in this city. There are numerous historic tours of homes and other sites throughout the city. There are art galleries and lots of shopping for antiques and great food. There is never a dull moment with some festival or another going on every weekend.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is a few blocks from the beach as well as the new Pleasure Pier and a 5-10 minute drive to historical locations, the Strand and Pier 21. Yet it's also very quiet at the house if you just want to have a relaxing quiet vacation or enjoy time with family and friends. Ask about our free passes to Bishop's Palace, Elissa, Harbor Tour, or Pier 21 Theater (for short historic films). (Available while supply lasts.) We have a 'sister property' down the street if you have a large group or this one is booked try #289207
