We had a fantastic time in Galveston and Edgar's place made all the difference. It's much nicer in real life. He has thought of everything. The beds were very comfortable, the washer/dryer were great to have and we really love the fact that he is pet friendly. The area is great and convenient to everything we needed to get to. We look forward to staying at the Pelican Cove again.
My friends and I rented Edgar's charming house for a weekend girls trip. Edgar was easy to get in touch with and very accommodating. Everything was well kept and clean when we arrived.Walking distance to the beach and the Pleasure Pier; a covered patio in the back with a grill; it was the perfect house for us!
A great location that is walking distance to the beach.The place was clean and comfortable. Nice sitting area in the back, where we spent our evenings relaxing.The host was very helpful and easy to reach.
We enjoyed our stay and would consider renting it again in the future.
We had a wonderful stay at this charming little cottage 2 blocks from the beach! Initially we had some trouble getting in because they key wasn't where it was supposed to be, but once we were inside things were great. The place was tidy, with fresh linens and clean floors. There is a cute guest book for you to sign. We loved the covered back porch area which could seat up to 8 people. We grilled fish and shrimp on the grill, and enjoyed using the kitchen to make meals and pina coladas. There was a full set of cooking/bake-ware which made it easy to prepare meals. There were also boogie boards for our use at the beach. The walk to Pleasure pier was only 10 mins, and it was just a short drive to downtown Galveston near the port. A lovely place, with enough parking on the street for 3 cars. The neighbors all seemed very nice and not too noisy. Edgar was responsive, and kind. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you so much for a memorable first time in Galveston!
Everything about the experience was nice and easy. Everything worked as advertised, and the house is clean and in a great location. It's close to the beach as well as downtown, but yet far enough away to avoid most of the weekend car traffic. And, there was always plenty of parking available in front of the house.
Two factors were very important to me when I was booking a weekend stay in Galveston....price and location! I wanted to stay near the historic area for a reasonable rate. And that's exactly what I got.
The house was cozy and simple. It felt exactly like going to my abuelita's house. It was very convenient to get to the sea wall and the Pleasure Pier. It's not fancy, but if I wanted that I would've booked a room at Hotel Galvez.
Edgar took a few days to get into contact with me whenever I tried to reach him, but it all worked out in the end. As the was my first Airbnb experience, I liked that there was a flexible cancellation policy and no additional fees for extra guests or pets.
All in all I would definitely book this house again whenever I'm in Galveston or any other property Edgar may have.
About the Host, Edgar
I am from South America, I moved to the USA nearly 20 years ago with my wife and daughter. I first lived in New York then relocated to Texas. I am a teacher, but for many years I had other houses in both North and South America, I would rent them out not for vacation but long term. Once I sold my 2 extra houses in Texas I came upon a house in Galveston, I decided to buy it and renovate it, it was terrible before I got to it. I am still a teacher, I own a vacation rental (for 4 years now), own 3 houses and 1 property in South America.
