The Space

Your perfect bungalow only steps from the Gulf, beach store shopping, restaurants and still close to everything like, the Strand historical district, the Pleasure Pier, and Moody Gardens. The house is decorated in a tropical theme and never lets you forget how close you are to the beach. The back yard is filled with tropical plants and palms. Use the grill on the small back deck for a cook-out or just enjoy the sea breezes from the front porch. Whatever you decide to do Blue Crab bungalow will make for an amazing stay on Galveston Island!

This house is close to 2 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also within walking distance to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood!

I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!

There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great accommodations, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston ’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all, and there is at least one festival per month on the Island. We have cruises to bar hopping... Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles, scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. Many come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn... Galveston Island's amazing water park or The NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Entertainment is just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called the Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)

We have another house on the island and will always be close if you have any question or issues during your stay. Feel free to contact us at any time! We look forward to sharing this amazing home with you and your friends and family!

Other Things to Note

Kitchen - There is always coffee, dry creamer and filters. You can use the kitchen and utensils for cooking as long as you clean up after yourself and feel free to use my spices, sugar, condiments and any other items like that. I ask that you purchase your other items for cooking though. There is also a BBQ you are welcome to use, just let me know if it is low on propane though.

The most important thing is that you enjoy your stay, so please let me know if there is anything else you need or that I can assist you with to make you time on the Island more enjoyable!

Thanks so much!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Some girlfriends and I planned a trip to Galveston for the 4th of July weekend and stayed at Blue Crab Bungalow. Everything was perfect! The house is decorated in a cute beach theme and the host furnished everything we would need. The house is very clean and the beds are comfortable. It is walking distance to the beach and only a mile from the downtown strand area.

  • Jeanna was such a pleasure to work with! She was quick to respond with any questions, gave me a great deal on the pricing, and was more than accommodating for me and my friends. The place had everything (and I stress everything) we needed and was incredibly comfortable and clean. We had 8 people stay for two nights and not once did we feel the place was lacking in elbow room. Everything we needed was within walking distance which was great and convenient! I would be happy to stay at the Blue Grab Bungalow again in the future and will recommend this place for anyone else interested as well!

As a traveler myself I'm excited for the opportunity to allow people to visit Galveston Island for a reasonable price; the hotel prices can be ridiculous here in the Summer. I'm a great person who likes sharing her home with others. I also enjoy cooking, strength training, scuba diving sailing, and anything else that has to do with the water!
