What a great house! This was our First airbnb experience and it went off without a hitch. The house is in a great location just a short walk to the beach. The portion of the beach closest to the house is Porretto Beach and was surprisingly quiet and we often had a large section just to ourselves (we were there however not on the weekend). The entire house is extremely comfortable and put together in a way to make a worry free experience, it literally has everything you need at home and more. It is spotlessly clean, very thoughtfully decorated and prepared (there is even an Aromatherapy Diffuser in the living room with oils provided). The bathroom is a nice size with a washer & dryer easily accessible. Since there was only two of us, we only used the master bedroom but the bed was super comfortable and all of the linens (including bath) were ample and plush. If you are tv watchers, there is only 1 television in the Master Bedroom but that was just fine for us. We loved sitting on the front porch in the evenings, even in the Texas heat all of the tropical plants provided a cooling shade. In fact all of the plants around the house were beautiful, we loved how the Tropical plants in the backyard sat against bedroom window and it made it feel like you were in the tropics. We honestly felt like we could just live right there. We really appreciate Bill is pet friendly, our Labrador felt right at home as well- the gated front and back yards made it perfect to not have to be worry about the dog. I would recommend this home to anyone, we were sad to leave!

Great house just blocks from the beach. William did a great job refurbishing the house. This would be my choice every time we are in the area!

I graduated from LSU in landscape architecture and owned a design/build/maintenance firm in Houston for 30+ continuing my passion for design via restoring Historic properties in the Houston/Galveston area. Since 2009, my partner Donald Tomek and myself have purchased/restored five homes in Galveston's Old Historic Neighborhoods. We take our responsibly as owners seriously in providing our guests with the ultimate Galveston experience. The objective in the renovation process was to provide a total package including the architectural, interior design, and garden experience. We think the photos of the properties will convey our efforts. We look forward to you being our guests!
