Welcome to the Galveston Victorian House, a full service luxury rental in the heart of Galveston's East End Historic District! All the comforts of a B&B but with complete privacy and much more space.
Ornately constructed 135 years ago, the house survived the Great Storm of 1900 as well as Hurricane Ike. Original hardwood floors from 1871 remain upstairs, and it is beautifully appointed with comfortable period compatible furnishings throughout to make your stay feel both timeless and memorable!
We are situated in the middle of the charming East End National Historic District and placed on one of the most architecturally significant and visually pleasing streets in Galveston. Ball Street is often visited by horse-drawn carriages whose tours are conducted by local guides.
Tastefully landscaped with colorful flowers and plants, the front lawn is well manicured while the back deck is surrounded by a fountain and gardens. The house itself has over 1,800 sq. ft. which include 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, dining room and kitchen. The TV/sitting room is convertible to a third bedroom (with a new queen sleeper sofa + additional 2" memory foam)to accommodate an additional 2 guests for a total of 6 guests. Another full bath with deep tub (and shower) is adjacent to the TV/sitting room.
A well lit "Great Room" has two large plush sofas and fine period compatible furniture making it perfect for relaxation and entertainment. The dining room is part of the living/dining area and features a Queen Anne table with six chairs, an additional leaf and padding. A china cabinet, side board, and bureau full of linen tablecloths and napkins is near the dining table. A silver tea and coffee service is also included. Wonderful art is present throughout the house and adds immeasurable pleasure to all guests.
A spacious, cheery kitchen has been completely remodeled with Thomasville cabinets and granite counter tops. There are two sets of china (8 place settings each). The silverware is a silver plated service for 12. Our kitchen is well stocked - we supply quality pots and pans, a Cuisinart food processor, electric knife, electric ice cream maker, toaster, microwave, coffee maker and electric coffee grinder. A host of different coffees, teas, spices, filters, paper towels, dishwasher detergent and other sundry items have been added for your convenience. The kitchen table comfortably seats four adults.
There are 2 gorgeous full bedrooms upstairs, each with queen-sized beds and a large bathroom with another deep tub (with shower).
We have a book about the house and the neighborhood that includes a guide to favorite shops, restaurants, attractions, walking tours and beaches with directions and recommendations. The East End is absolutely charming and you will love to walk in the evenings and mornings to look at all the wonderful historic homes in our neighborhood. It's magical!
