vacation rental description

Restored in 2006, this 250 sq. ft. efficiency apartment is packed with character. Ammenities include a kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave, and electric hot plate, with asst. small appliances and utensils/ serving ware for your convenience. The bath features a spacious shower with marble topped vanity. Breakfast table with seating for 2, plush queen sized bed, and 32' flat screen tv w/ blueray dvd player finish out this island hideaway. Bathed in a panorama of natural light, the simplicty of the painted shiplap walls with refinished antique heart pine floors create an aura of calm and relaxation that you will not find in a cramped impersonal hotel room. Take in the ocean breezes and sounds of the surf from your own small private deck. Satellite tv, and wireless internet services are provided. Small charcoal grill on premises (BYO Charcoal)

The Hideaway is built above the carriage house of a 1914 Craftsman bungalow which is located on the opposite end of the property (see Homeaway listing # 905922). The properties are screened from each other by the lush plantings of the garden setting. Whether in search of quiet and reflection, a romantic get away, or simply an alternative to a conforming hotel room, the Island Hideaway Carriage House can provide the ideal setting.

Galveston has an impressive fourth of July celebration (fireworks display are set off at 37th Street jetty 3 blocks away). Beat the crowds by enjoying the display from the comfort of your own private deck, or at the very least , steps from your doorway. Thanksgiving and Christmas are another ideal time to be on the island. The summer crowds have thinned out, the weather is mild (bordering on awesome), and the atmosphere is laid back.

If it is raucious fun and the excitement of the crowds that you're looking for, then come down for Mardi Gras (several Mardi Gras parades march down this section of Seawall Blvd. for two consecutive weekends prior to the beginning of the lenten season. Spring break, Memorial Day, or The Lone Star Bike Rally (usually the first week of November) offer additional opportunities to catch the Island at it's peak, but make sure to book early.

traveler reviews for this galveston apartment rental

I absolutely LOVED it!!!!!!!

Review submitted: June 30, 2014   Date of arrival: June 13, 2014

3 words..." I absolutely loved it!" I want to tell you that it is horrible and not to go there ( for my own benefit for sure)....but I cannot tell a lie. Beginning with the lush tropical garden, you suddenly feel a calm that makes you want to forget any stresses. The studio is just the right size if you want to go alone to relax, or to bring a loved one because its" truly romantic". Southern charm as its best! The owner went above and beyond making us feel welcomed as we walked in the door. Gourmet coffee, fresh water and lots of wonderful snacks amongst other surprises, it just kept getting better! The bathroom was supplied with the amenities that you would usually take on a trip with you, so leave your shampoo and conditioner at home! Walking distance to the beach and local hotspots, I did not even use my car once. Like I said its horrible ;) I have now found the place for my annual getaway. I cannot tell a lie.

An adorable cottage, just minutes' walk from beach

Review submitted: May 13, 2014   Date of arrival: April 23, 2014

They exceeded our expectations with this cottage! We pulled into the adorable bungalow and were greeted by our favorite snacks inside (how did they know?) It is small and quaint, perfect for a single or couple to get away. Not being familiar with the geography or location of Galveston, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that this cottage was in the perfect location for us! While other tourists were paying daily for parking by the beach, we walked to places like Pleasure Pier, Joe's Crab Shack and, of course, the beach! It was great exercise and very convenient. There were more than enough towels and paper products and nice, cozy blankets. The lights outside the cottage were a little bright at night. The interior is modern and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay!
