We are animal people too, so you may keep your pet but we've had experience with tenants bringing large animals that caused problems, so small animals will be allowed, they must be house trained, medium/large pets will be considered and will be charged a fee! Please let us know how many pets will be staying, 1-2 are okay but anymore than that we will have to consider.

  • 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.

  • The house was near perfect for our stay. It was a close drive to the convention I was attending, and I enjoyed walking along the seawall as well.

    I wish I had paid closer attention to the posting, as there was no wi-fi. That made it impossible for me to get any work done while I was there.

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 a year now), own 3 houses and 1 property in South America
