New! Upstairs Loft 3b/1b Central air, Wi-Fi, balcony, BEACH 3 blks!

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Galveston, Galveston Island, Texas
The Salt Water House is an upstairs 3 bedroom 1 bath loft that is located three blocks from the seawall in a great neighborhood. We completely remodeled this house but kept the charm of the 1900 house intact, just modernized. Big windows, tall ceilings and great space. Wifi throughout the house, Apple TV and small balcony. The only way to access this home is to climb stairs.... we want to make sure our guests are aware of that.

We keep our rates really low but will ask about yourself and your visit. We love this house and we maintain it and clean it as it is near and dear to our hearts. We want guests that will treat it with the respect it deserves.

1st Bedroom: 1 queen bed.
2nd Bedroom: 2 twins (can be made into a king)
3rd Bedroom: 1 twin

The SWH has a beautiful queen bedroom with a new pillow-top mattress and hotel...

My family has been traveling to Galveston for several years. In general, we stay in hotels but we thought we would give The Saltwater House a shot. I am so very glad we did. Not only had the owners thought of everything their guests may...More

This is the top floor of a house that has been redone into an apartment, and they did an amazing job. The rental was clean, very comfortable, and in a great location; walking distance to the beach and good food. The decor makes you feel...More

About the neighbourhood
Galveston is a wonderful little city. There are really great neighborhoods and not so good neighborhoods. We are in a cute and safe area; amazing neighbors and cute pocket of the island. Make sure to ask other rentals about their location and their neighbors. Rentals are definitely the way to go on the island. The hotels are tired and need to be refreshed (We can speak to that as we used to run three of them).
Getting around
Bikes, golf carts, walking, etc. It's a pretty small island. Of course you can always drive.
Car not needed
