It's a short walk to the beach or a quick bike or trolley ride to the east side and the Strand This modest carriage house is a former servants' quarters located in an eclectic island community. It's cozy, humble, and has been charmingly remodeled; our reasonable rates reflect this. THE LOCATION Conveniently located mid-island, the home is an easy 8-min walk to the sand and Seawall. Take a trolley to the quaint downtown/Strand area for world-class dining, seafood markets, art museums, and shopping.

Take a trolley to the quaint downtown/Strand area for world-class dining, seafood markets, art museums, and shopping. Enjoy waterfront dining along Harborside and perhaps Fisherman’s Wharf. Cajun-lovin’ foodies can try Willie G’s for their robust gumbos or the Del Mar with Redfish Francese. Early risers can take the trolley to the Strand and Mod’s Coffee House, or rent a golf cart and tour the lovely East End Historical District. There are so many fabulous attractions for all ages in Galveston. Several magazine editors have added this carriage house to their to-do list. RELAXING AT HOME An eat-in kitchen has a generous granite-topped island; the renovated kitchen features stained glass windows and two antique windows facing the street. Enjoy the large, farmhouse-style sink, butcher block countertop, and modern appliances, including a dishwasher, coffee pot, and toaster oven. A separate TV area offers a traditional slipcovered sofa and armchair, railroad cart coffee table, antique fireplace mantel and a 47” Vizio flat-screen TV with Roku. The carriage house is a perfect getaway for a couple, business travelers, solo adventurers, and small families (a child-size mattress and bedding located under the king-size bed, and can be moved into the living room). There are two large-screen smart TVs (located in the LR and BR). Access your home subscription services or thousands of free shows available via internet apps.
