The space
Gulfview Retreat (GVR) is a totally-renovated cottage decorated in a bright, retro, mid-century modern style, with original paintings by Houston artists. You have a view of the Gulf of Mexico from our upstairs porch/balcony. We welcome couples, families with children, LGBT community..and we love dogs!! We do have a fully-enclosed dog run which wraps around the home. Please note that we do NOT allow cats!

Our home has a fully-equipped kitchen, with refrigerator/icemaker, dishwasher, disposable, electric stove/oven, microwave, wine cooler, flatware, dishes, pots, pans, Keurig coffee maker, large drip coffee maker, and a full array of knives and other kitchen utensils.

We have satellite TV in the living room, and in both of the bedrooms for your convenience.

Our home has a maximum of 6 people (including infants and small children) as regulated by the City of Galveston, such that there are no exceptions. Please note, however, that if you require an additional bedroom/bath, you may choose to rent our studio apartment downstairs, which has its own private entrance, full kitchen, satellite TV, internet, and private bath. That listing is on airbnb at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/8794446. This would allow your group to sleep 8-9, and you would have access to the entire fully-enclosed dog run. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/8794446
A NOTE ABOUT PETS: We love dogs, and we have not charged a pet fee in the many years we have been in operation. However, we do reserve the right to deduct from the security deposit if it is clear that there is any type of excessive odor, any type of damage to furniture, rugs, or to the unit itself, or excessive dog hair.

Where you’ll be

Galveston, Texas, United States

We are located in the historic East End of Galveston (San Jacinto Historic District), one block from the Seawall. It is a residential neighborhood, but since we are so close to the Seawall it is easy to walk to many popular restaurants and beaches. We especially like the many cottages that have been renovated, and the close proximity to so many tourist attractions.
