traveler reviews for this galveston house rental

Perfect for two small families with pets!

Review submitted: March 24, 2014   Date of arrival: March 20, 2014

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.

Review submitted: March 14, 2014   Date of arrival: March 7, 2014

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
