This upper apartment, in an historic home is thoughtfully decorated for comfort and style. It’s in a quiet neighborhood and is just two blocks from the beach and local restaurants. Parking was a breeze right out front and Tom accommodated our dogs. The home is very comfortable. We highly recommend staying in Tom’s home.

I took my Mom, my dog, niece (7) and nephew (3) down to Galveston for a couple of nights. Tom's place was perfect for us. It was an awesome historic home, really nicely decorated and within walking distance to the beach and places to eat. Everything about this trip was easy, our host was great and super responsive and informative. We would love to come back and stay here again.

The house is amazing, we loved the historic charm of the house and of Galveston. This home is wonderfully decorated with antiques and full of history. The front balcony was very pleasant in the evening with the ocean breeze. Check in and checkout was very easy, Tom was the perfect host. We will definitely book this house again.

Tom was an attentive and generous host, providing tips and constant communication. He provided excellent information on the house and gave a small tour on the house and its historic value. The space itself is lovely and while it is just the second floor of the house, we had plenty of room and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The care and stewardship of this home is obvious, clean and comfortable, it is an excellent place to relax and unwind on the Texas Coast. Highly recommended!
