About the Owner

Hello, We're from Kingwood, TX. With our son away to college and our daughter out in the working world as a nurse, we're now empty nesters. On the other hand, our daughter recently gave us our first grandchild!

I grew up only a couple of hours away and was fortunate enough to spend time in Galveston at least once or twice a year. My husband is from North Carolina, but he got to Texas as quick as he could 20 years ago!

We both love to travel and have been to several countries and scenic spots over the years, but we keep returning to Galveston for the charm and laid back atmosphere. It's our little get away from it all place.

Beautiful, well-kept and equipped home

  • 4 of 5
My family -- two adults, two elders, two young adults, one teen and a small dog -- loved this comfortable home situated just a couple of blocks from Galveston's beach. It was decorated beautifully for the season. In the kitchen, we found nearly everything we could want from spices and staples to utensils (but had to use a wine bottle to roll out dough when we couldn't find a rolling pin) and cookware. There was enough space for the members of our party to enjoy alone-time or together-time. We'd recommend it highly to family and/or friends. Thank you!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5
The place was overall great. It contained all the amenities we needed for our stay.

Parking was a bit of an issue with guests arriving on different days, but we made due.

I'd recommend this place to anyone with all the charm of a historic home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Pelican Place. We are sorry the parking was challenging for you and your guests. We have two parking spaces enclosed within our gated back yard, but unfortunately additional parking is subject to nearby available street parking. If it's a busy week or weekend it can be a little difficult finding convenient parking! Since we are close to the corner, we recommend trying 20th Street for additional parking.

It was a cozy house with lots of charm!

  • 4 of 5
Overall we enjoyed our stay. We did have a slight issue when we were locked out of the house but it was quickly resolved. Some of the windows were not locked and the locks were painted shut which created a slight security concern. We were able to get them locked with a little work. The house was tidy and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porches!

Perfect for two small families with pets!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time in this cute house! It fit our five teens, four adults and small dogs comfortably. The main dining table was great for meals and family games. A bonus for us parents is that in the evenings while the teens were watching movies or playing games, we could walk a short two blocks to the Galvez for cocktails. One thing is though the house is only a few blocks from the beach - the Pleasure Pier was a little more of a trek. If you were to bring bicycles to the house, you could easily ride them to all the Galveston hot spots - including the beach, Pleasure Pier, the Strand, etc. The teens didn't mind the walk to the Pier though! We would defintietly recommend and/or stay at Pelican Place again!

Gracious old home, Historical city.

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful vacation for a family of several generations. Peaceful trip down memory lane for grandparents as they enjoy the beautiful old city sights and shopping. Thrills for the youngsters with the amusements parks and the beach. This gracious old home accommodated the whole family in comfort. Thank you. Sharon woods

From the Owner

We have been coming to Galveston to the beach for several years. But we recently realized that Galveston had so much more to offer than just its beaches which are nice. We began taking our bikes with us and started riding through all the Victorian Era neighborhoods, the Seawall, the Strand. Soon we started spending every weekend possible exploring the island and its rich history. We also found that staying in a house was much more relaxing than staying in a hotel. When we came across this adorable vintage 1889 Gulf Coast Style Cottage on a quiet street just around the corner from the Seawall, we knew it was a place that we would love to own. It has been so much fun putting our personal touches on it and finishing out the attic bed and bath rooms. We love the old wooden floors everywhere, the soaring high ceilings, and the beautiful little staircase leading up to the attic dorm rooms and we hope you do too!

Pelican Place is centrally located and close to everything in Galveston. Walk everywhere you go! You are only 2 blocks from the beach and 6 blocks from the new Pleasure Pier! Many great restaurants and bars are an easy walk.

Do you prefer the Historic Strand? It's only a few minutes away, too! There you will find live theater, shopping and many wonderful restaurants.

Want more than the beach, restaurants and shopping? How about a water park? It's only 5 miles to Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens.

Bishop's Palace and Moody Mansion are just a short distance, too. Don't miss these fabulous houses with beautiful antiques and interesting history. The historical Silk Stocking District is only 3 blocks away and boasts a varied collection of historic homes that reflect development from the Civil War through World War II. The neighborhood includes some of Galveston’s best examples of the Queen Anne style architecture.
