traveler reviews for this galveston house rental

Great place to stay

Review submitted: June 26, 2014   Date of arrival: June 20, 2014

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!

Owners 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!

Review submitted: April 22, 2014   Date of arrival: April 11, 2014

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!
