About the property

Remodeled 100 year Home - Convenient to Everywhere and Beach just around corner.

100-year-old 2 story home - very cool and remodeled beautifully.

Beautiful home on a nice quiet block. Don't worry about driving and parking on the beach seawall - you can walk just 2 blocks.

The house is located 2 blocks from the beach. Walk to Bars & Restaurants, bike rentals, souvenir shops like the famous Murdoch's, and of course Pleasure Pier. All within walking distance. Just a few moments’ drive gets you to Moody Mansion, Bishop Mansion, Shopping and Dining on the famous Historic Galveston Strand.

Enjoy this unique home with comfortable furniture and spacious dining and family areas. Walk out the dining room onto the large raised deck overseeing the back yard. Don't be pulled into "cottages" and "bungalows" - this truly is a large full size home with 3 large bedrooms, full size washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, Cable TV, Free Wi-Fi, and more. If you are familiar with Galveston - then you will also appreciate the large driveway for parking several cars.

Fishing - you bet - walk down to the beach and out on the jetties. Catch a few fish and walk back home.

The owners take pride in cleanliness and the home is thoroughly sanitizing after every visit. No pets are allowed under any circumstances to avoid any kind of allergies. The responsible guest must be at least 24 years of age.

About Terry

Terry & Claudia love spending time in Galveston - it is a super place to hang out with so many things to do and see.

Terry purchased this house in 2014

Why Terry chose San Jacinto

Location, Location, Location. Very nice 2 story 3 bedroom home with a huge backyard deck. Very close walk to the beach and restaurants just around the corner. Lovely street with nice neighbors. Don't be fooled by bungalows and cottages - that just means small. This is a large 2000 square foot 3 bedroom spacious home for the whole family.

What makes this house unique

Like fishing - walk down to the beach with your pole and fish off the jetties. Big backyard deck for hanging out with the whole family. Large gas BBQ pit on the back deck. Parking for several cars in the large driveway. Large home with family space.

Beautiful, Historic Property w/ an Abundance of Modern Amenities & PARKING! Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

WOW, I am so grateful for this incredible rental home and it's amazing owner!!! The photos and description of this property don't begin to describe how wonderful it really is!! Myself and the group I traveled with have rented homes in the past, but this home in particular exceeded our expectations!! This historic home has been refurbished and decorated to meet any HGTV lover's high standards! Lol! The back patio/out door area was phenomenal and the abundance of parking was GREAT!! I look forward to staying at this property each and every time I travel to Galveston-I'm even recommending it to my family for our next vacation! Terry and this rental played a huge part in making our trip EXTRAORDINARY!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Tara and for your kind words. We look forward to having you back in Galveston in the future. The backyard deck is always the one that gets big reviews. It's so nice to have space for the whole family to sit out back and grill on the bbq or just hang out.

Excellent location, walkable to beach. House interior was exceptional like something out of a design magazine. Wifi worked well. Fully stocked kitchen with modern utensils. Front porch and back verandah for sitting out. Terry quick to answer any queries. Will definitely return if we are in the area

Great house and location. Very comfortable, roomy and well appointed.

Only downside - need some hangers in the closet. We came for a wedding and there were not enough hangers for shirts, trousers, dresses, etc. I know that's a minor ding, but that would've made the house perfect. Thanks.

Well kept, well managed.

This was a perfect little get away for a quick anniversary trip for my wife and I. This house puts you right in the middle of a small neighborhood and all the facts of daily life that come with it. We walked to Shykatz for some of the best breakfast and desserts we've ever had and you are only blocks from Broadway for a day sight seeing. We will be back.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we were looking for over the holidays. Ample space to relax & allow our busy toddler to run around, plus a very functional kitchen, etc we really should have tried harder to get the extended family to join us there! It was pretty chilly for most of the time but when we could the deck was a great amenity to have. If the kids were a little older we would've used the backyard more but as it was down the back steps and a bit uneven, it really wasn't that great for the toddler. All in all, very convenient, comfortable, easy and relaxing. Thank you!

Great place to stay in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and the experience was awesome. This house was equipped with everything. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to enjoy a peaceful stay with all the amenities of home. If you want to go somewhere with the kids and relax this is it. We hope to come back again and repeat the experience.
