Perfect Place

Clean, clean, clean. Best deal on the seawall, and a short, short walk to the pleasure pier and beach. Full kitchen and cold air conditioning. We look forward to returning again.

Perfect for 4th of July

  • 5 of 5
Following our positive experience with the apartments for Mardi Gras,
my in-laws and I rented both apartments for the Independence Day weekend.

With the Sunrise and Sunset rented, our family got the opportunity to spend the long weekend on the Island in a home away from home. Cooking at the apartments gave us a chance to save money and spend time together, while the convenient location gave everyone a chance to relax as they pleased. For some, that was on the beach or at the Pleasure Pier, while for me it was a quiet day of reading and napping at the apartment. As with Mardi Gras, the apartments offer a perfect place to catch the 4th of July parade and fireworks show.

In short, we look forward to making the Sunrise and Sunset part of our family events for years to come.

Best Location to catch the Seawall parades

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were unable to ride in this year's Mardi Gras parades so we decided to rent the Sunset apartment for the first weekend of Mardi Gras in Galveston.

While it may not have been our first plan, the apartment certainly made a positive impression on me and my family. It is ideally located near 25th at Seawall, making it the perfect location to watch the parades with friends and family. Between the parades, the apartments are perfect for walking the Seawall and going to the Pleasure Pier.

Rick keeps a clean and pleasant apartment, comfortable for a busy vacation or simple Island hideaway. It has offered us the opportunity to spend more time on the Island in a friendly and comfortable way. We look forward to many other occasions at the apartments!

Family trip to Galveston

  • 5 of 5
Stayed a week, had a great experience. Lots to do in Galveston, and plenty of tourist attractions close by. Convenience and a liquor stores are in walking distance on 23rd. Visit was quiet and relaxing at all times. House was in very good condition and clean. Had a comfy bed and a full kitchen with a nice living area for family/entertaining. Everything you need to feel "at home" was there. Can't beat the price for everything you get compared to a hotel. We plan on returning again very soon.

Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (total of 4 adults and 1 child) stayed in the larger apartment on our week long vacation. It was fabulous. Rick was very flexible with our check in time, showed us around and even gave us local eatery ideas.
The location and apartment could not be better. If you are looking for life on the Seawall...this is the spot. You can WALK to the beach, eateries, tours, shopping and more.
My family and I enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Pleasure Pier at night and watched the sunrise while enjoying a nice cup of coffee in the morning. All can be viewed from the front porch.
The amenities of renting from 'A bit of Galveston'...A full kitchen (we saved a lot of money on breakfast and lunch), Sleeping that would accommodate 6 adults, cable tv and dvd (we watched occasionally..we even rented from red box 2 nights), towels for showers and the beach, ice cold air conditioning and boogie boards for the beach. The best amenity....LOCATION, PRICE and Hospitality by Rick and his Wife.
Our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed the beach, the Seawall activities, the Strand and time in our home (away from home).
If you rent 'A bit of Galveston' you will be able create the kind of memories that my family created during our week long stay.
My family visits Galveston every year and we will be making our reservations for this place againin 2014.
