Cute Functional Beach House in Central Location
We were visiting Galveston for Iron Man Texas. Dolphin House provided exactly what we needed for pre and post race relaxing. The house is well kept and decorated nicely, It feels like home. There are many nice touches that make it feel upscale. The open plan kitchen with sit around bar was great for socializing and making meals. There is also a nice outside lounging area under that house. Our 11 year old daughter liked having her own room with comfortable bed and TV. Finally our hosts Greg and Don were extremely friendly and helpful. We'll be back!
Great stay at a great location
Upon arrival we were met at the front steps by Greg and Don. We were welcomed to the property and given the grand tour. Great location which was just a short walk from the Seawall and all the fun. The house was beautiful and had everything you will need for a comfortable stay. My daughter and I had a great time and will be staying again in the future.
The Jett's were great guests and welcome back anytime! They took great care of the home and left everything spotless. We look forward to hosting them at Dolphin House again!
Awesome, relaxing experience
The Dolphin House was both relaxing And a fun place for the whole family. We are a family of 5 with kids ages 16,9 and 6. It was close to the beach, restaurants, major stores and all the fun entertainment places. The house was very updated with a fabulous bathroom. The kitchen was great with all the necessities. The owners were amazing. They communicated well with us from the time we booked,during our stay and even after our stay. They offered great suggestions for restaurants, how to avoid most of the major traffic issues and just showed great pride in their home as well as care that our family was taking care of. Dolphin House will be our go to place to stay when we come to Galveston
Thank you for the very kind words! We are so pleased that you chose Dolphin House for your family vacation gathering. We are glad we met your expectations, and happy that your daughter enjoyed her 16th birthday getaway! It is our goal to provide each guest with a "Home Away from Home" that meets and exceeds their expectations.
We are pleased to let you know that beginning August 2017, Dolphin House will have a new sister property: Casa Tortuga! It is conveniently located for our guest's convenience, and will offer a similar quality location and experience that our Dolphin House visitors have come to expect.
We hope that when planning your next Island Getaway, you will let us host your lovely family again at either of our beautifully restored Galveston Island beach bungalows.

Beautiful, clean, great location...perfect!
The pictures are truly reflective of the beauty this home holds. Well-stocked, so roomy, comfy furniture and particular care offered for electronics charging. We couldn't have asked for more. Well...adopt us and let us live be here?? Thank you hosts!! We had an excellent stay.
Lovely home and great hosts
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This home has a great location and is so cozy. Bed was very comfortable, as was all the furniture. All the extra efforts by hosts were much appreciated. Will definitely try to re-book on our next trip to Galveston.
Cozy and Close to Galveston Attractions
We loved the old feeling of he house and the beautiful updates that gave it a modern touch. We were close to everything in the Galveston area and it was just enough space for our family of 5 to relax with our own space, but still feel together. LOVED!
