Welcome to the "Galveston" famous Kettle House. Enjoy this newly renovated 1960's home originally built as a steel storage tank. This home has foam insulation and central AC for ultimate comfort. We have high speed Wi-Fi, 4k Smart TV, and includes all the comforts of home. Large deck great for catching rays and relaxing in the breeze. Seen on HGTV/DIY show "Big Texas Fix"!

8 minute walk to the beach - have to cross FM 3005
12 miles to the historic Strand

The space

There is an interior metal spiral staircase that is steep, tight, and can be difficult to navigate. There are NO HANDRAILS.

Downstairs bedroom with 2 queen beds requires going downstairs and bathroom is upstairs. These beds are also elevated. We do provide stairs with 3 steps for easy access. There are NO rails on bed! So if your worried about yourself or children falling off these beds won’t be for you! Got to work with the space we have :-)

Since this is a beach house there are 14 exterior stairs that take you to the main living space.

This is a West End beach house and like all Galveston there are mosquitoes. We supply big spray at the house and also a bug zapper but during certain times of the year they can be bad. If you leave the outside lights on at night they will attract June bugs and other insects.

Also to note this house is on the “west” end of Galveston by all the beach homes. This house is not in town by restaurants and downtown. It’s approx a 10 min drive back to Walmart and fast food.

Where you’ll be

Galveston, Texas, United States

The beach is a quick 8 minute walk from The Kettle House! You will have to pass FM 3005 which can be busy but there are many periods with no traffic that make it easy to pass.

If you are familiar with the house you will know that it sits on FM 3005. This road can be busy and have road noise. If this is a problem this house may not be right for you. Noise is more minimal inside.

House is a 3 minute drive to a small general stores and deli that serves breakfast and hot food and is open daily from 7am - 9pm, Dollar Store, Italian Restaurant, liquor store, and a Bank.

We are always last minute and spontaneous. It’s not unlike us to book a place day of stay or jump on a last minute plane with no reservations. We live life to the fullest.
