House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps
Are you looking for an exclusive locale for your vacation this
year? Step back in time for your getaway but experience it with all
of today?s luxuries. The moment you enter this exquisite Victorian
home you?ll feel as if you have somehow become royalty. Every piece
of woodwork in the home - from the staircase to the 6 fireplace
mantles to the pocket doors - is ornately carved and in pristine
condition. The high ceilings and oversized dimensions of all of the
rooms add to the castle-like atmosphere of this amazing home.
However, it?s not just the history of the home that is so
captivating. The kitchen and bathrooms have been beautifully
renovated. There are four televisions, three DVD players, and a VHS
recorder to help you through any bad weather days. Central air keeps
the entire house cool and keeps you firmly in the 21st century.
The roomy house sleeps eight comfortably - no sofa beds, no cots
tucked in the corner of a hallway. One bedroom has a king-size bed,
two bedrooms have queen-size beds, and the fourth bedroom is on the
first floor and has a daybed with a trundle.
But the house is just the beginning. Two enormous side porches
provide over 1000-square feet of area for relaxing and catching the
warm evening breeze from the Gulf. Just off of the first-floor porch
paradise awaits with a state-of-the-art tropical pool offering a
soothing rock waterfall. Relax in the cool water, nap on the padded
chaises, or lounge on the porch. It?s your own private getaway.
Leave the hectic pace and worries of the modern world behind. Look
out at your East End Historic District neighbors and transport
yourself to a different time and place. When you?re ready to return
to the 21st century you?ll find yourself within walking distance to
the Strand and next door to amazing restaurants like the Original
Mexican Café¬ the Sunflower Bakery and the Mosquito Grill. And when
you tire of swimming in your private lagoon the beach awaits you a
mere 10 blocks away.

Beautiful Victorian Home & PoolBeautiful Victorian Home & Pool
Beware of the large TX water bugs as we were on constant alert for them inside the home. Several guests had written notes about ghosts in the home in the guest book which seemed strange to us - there was extra noise on windy nights (the shutters on the outside of the windows move in the wind) and the old floors creak, but we knew to expect noises in a vintage home. While it was stated in the contract we signed we really didn't like having to wash all the towels and take out the trash before departing.
The positives about the Grand Victorian are the three porch sitting areas and the lush and beautifully landscaped gardens and pool with waterfall. We enjoyed a day in the pool and it felt private and like an oasis during the hot Texas weekend. The kitchen and one of the upstairs baths were both nicely updated. This grand home was one of the more attractive ones in the area.
The house is in a very cute neighborhood with other similar victorian homes and is within walking distance to several great restaurants like the Mosquito Cafe and Sunflower Cafe and retail shopping. We drove a short distance to Stewart Beach for a day of sun and sand and ate at several of the restaurants on Seawall Blvd.
Overall it was a very nice weekend in a beautiful historic home.
