The best feature of this home, however, is it's peaceful and calming effect it has on all who visit. Whether for a quiet get away for a small group, or for a family vacation get away, the Beach Bungalow provides the perfect setting.
Galveston has an impressive fourth of July celebration (fireworks display are set off at the 37th Street jetty 3 blocks away). Thanksgiving and Christmas are another ideal time to be on the island. The summer crowds have thinned out, the weather is mild (bordering on awesome), and the atmosphere is laid back.
If it is raucious fun and excitement you're looking for, then come down for Mardi Gras (several Mardi Gras parades march down this section of Seawall Blvd. See mardigrasgalveston for details) , Spring break/ Memorial Day, or The Lone Star Bike Rally (usually the first week of November).

Every little detail was amazing in this house. We had a great time and the location was perfect. It is on a nice quiet street, but close to everything. We loved our stay. We can’t wait to come back another time!
Cool beach bungalow in a great location!
This was the perfect place for a weekend getaway!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was quaint and we could easily walk to the beach, restaurants, and the Pleasure Pier.
Great centrally located house
My husband, daughter and 2 dogs recently stayed at this charming craftsman house. We had a wedding and related parties to attend and the house was so perfectly located. We were able to take our dogs to the beach (couple of blocks away), pick up my Mom at the Galvez and make it to the church on time on Broadway. The house is bright and cheerful. Has all amenities. Maintained yard and washer and dryer. Perfect for experiencing Galveston's beaches and historic city. Many restaurants near by. Would definitely go back!
The home is perfectly renovated and decorated. If you want a 5 star experience, the Beach Bungalow is certainly it! We enjoyed the convenient location to the beach and local restaurants. The July 4th parade and fireworks were outstanding. We loved everything about it! Thanks so much for a great getaway!
