Remodeled, dog-friendly house in quiet Galveston neighborhood

This charming dog-friendly Galveston vacation rental resides in a quiet central neighborhood, making it perfect for a family retreat with everyone!

Located about three miles from the Historic East End and the Strand, this peaceful home in the middle of a neighborhood offers a bit of distance from the busy, ritzy resorts while still being close to everything.

This split-level home with a bright red door is straightforward and eclectically homey, much like staying in a friend's house. Head up the stairs to the main living area with plush furniture and a TV with cable. This home offers free WiFi, though you could also take this opportunity to unplug, enjoy quality time with friends and family, and catch up on some reading.

The eat-in kitchen is naturally lit and spacious, with all the standard appliances and plenty of wine glasses. Take your meal outside to the fenced in yard to enjoy the nice weather and a bit of privacy.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms in this home. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a desk to organize maps or pen a postcard to faraway loved ones. This room has an attached bathroom.

Downstairs is the second bedroom with a queen bed and a twin trundle bed, as well as a den with a futon.

No need to worry about the Texas heat - this home comes with air conditioners and plenty of fans to keep the air moving. Need to do a mid-vacation laundry load? There's a washer/dryer in the basement! And if you'd like to bring up to two small dogs along with you (weighing under 25 pounds), you're welcome to do so for a nightly pet fee.

This quiet home is great for an extended family or a group of friends to share while they explore the island. Get everyone together to enjoy activities like golfing at Moody Gardens or carnival rides at the Historic Pleasure Pier.

This Texas vacation rental is a great choice for guests who enjoy adventure on the outside and quiet on the inside.

great yard. very pet friendly.

The house was very nice. We enjoyed our stay. The fenced in yard was definitely a plus!!! Plenty of dishes and cook wear. It’s only a few minutes from the beach. Our boys loved that an ice cream truck came by (we live in the country so that was a 1st for them). Also there is a small back patio area with a tall fence with a rustic paint job that is perfect for snapping a few cute pics! The only warnings I have are for those with small children... the floors are tile & hardwood, in combination with the stairs is a good set up for falls (we were vigilant and had a good weekend though). We also moved decorative breakables immediately upon arrival!

the pictures are not equal to what the house was really like. either they took them long ago or they just used the things in the pics to stage for the website.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see our guest felt the home did not match the pictures. We have verified the pictures do depict what guests will be receiving in their rental. Thank you!

Based on pictures we thought this place would be nice, we were so wrong!
Location was ok but everything else was bad. Smelled bad and moldy, roaches, spiders, things falling apart, no central AC and the window units did not cool much. Don’t stay here if you can avoid it
Manager response:
We strive to make sure our guests are pleased with the unit they have chosen. We have had the unit sprayed for insects, made sure housekeeping has made a grade A clean, and added a brand new couch and air conditioning unit to the upstairs. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Thanks!

The place has a classic look. It’s not extremely far from the attractions.

House was wonderful. Upstairs bed was uncomfortable, but everything else wwas Great! My family will be back!
Russel K. May 2018
Not sure if I actually loved anything. But the place served its purpose. We had already paid in advance and made the trip. The place was clean enough and had cable, internet, electricity, hot running water and enough beds for the whole family. Only major problem we had was the door looked like it had been kicked in and when we called the number and voiced our concern, we got a machine and nobody cared enough to respond back. Made us feel like all that mattered was just the money they got from us.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see our guest did not feel taken care of. We inspected and repaired the door shortly after hearing from this guest about it. Thank you!

The house is very old. Bathtub questionable. Lights didn’t work. Dirty. Dead bugs downstairs. I’ve stayed in worse places but I would not stay here again at all.
Michelle d. Apr 2018
Cute little clean beach house. It was very convenient, affordable, comfortable place for my family of 6, which is usually difficult to accommodate. My only complaint is it had several minor maintenance issues. None of which affected my stay. I would definitely recommend it to others, and even invited family over.
Ramona I. Mar 2018
Definitely a great price for the family to enjoy a vacation with all the luxuries of being right at home. Love the fact that kitchen was well-equipped washer and dryer at our fingertips. Lots of spaces and beds to use. Nice back patio. Very nice home for the value.
RAED A. Aug 2017
I enjoyed staying in this home .I highly recommend it.
Pam M. Aug 2017
We had such a wonderful time. The kids loved the house & there was plenty of room for all of us. It was nice just being a mile away from everything!! We also enjoyed the quietness of the neighborhood instead of the hustle and bustle of Seawall Blvd. Cute little house with everything you need!
Mischele C. Jul 2017
We enjoyed our stay. I will most definitely rent from them again, it was easy and hassle free. Landons Lookout was full of charm and comfortable!
Lynnda R. Jul 2017
This home could be a desirable rental as it has a ton of character. Issues that need to be taken care of: the housekeeping service is terrible and should be replaced. The beds arent that great. A good nights sleep is one of the most important things while on vacation. Our stay was not restful at all due to the beds and the security of the property. The front door does not close properly and can be opened from the outside even when the deadbolt is engaged. There were ants in the bedroom downstairs. The home is located in a neighborhood buts its easy to get to. It is a cute house that could really be great if it was updated and cleaned properly.
Paula J. Jul 2017
Our family loved the stay at London's lockout we enjoyed the view from every angle of the vacation home!! We slept like a baby!! We would definitely stay again!! Galveston was an awesome place!
Juhree K. Jun 2017
We had 4 adults and 3 children. There was plenty of sleeping room. The upstairs bedroom does not have a door but it was fine since we were all family. The place was uniquely designed and the kids loved playing throughout the house. My only suggestion is to fix up the back yard. Really isn't useable. Over all we loved the house and plan to make it an annual event for us
Deja N. May 2017
Fun place. Many spots to sleep although the beds are old. Its hard to find the driveway.
Lorie H. May 2017
It was much better than staying in a motel room. I would recommend booking this anytime over a motel. Thank you!
Candy H. Apr 2017
Place was clean and efficient for what we needed. Listed as a 3 bedroom but only has one room with a door and not even the "master" but if you are looking for a pet friendly place close to the beach and is reasonable then this is it. Don't recommend you try to find this place at night was hard to find.
Randy P. Oct 2016
You couldn't ask for a better place to stay with a great price!! Place was clean and roomy. Will go here again
Dusty G. Aug 2016
We had a great time...there was plenty of room for the 8 of us.
Lolita P. Aug 2016
Had a lot of fun, good, clean house and VERY friendly staff
Tiffany F. Jul 2016
The house was great! A little hard to find in the dark, and we did have an issue with ants in the bedrooms. It is in the middle of a neighborhood, everyone seemed friendly. Great location close to everything
Susan C. Jul 2016
We enjoyed our stay at this house. When we arrived, we found that the house had not been cleaned! I called to let Vacasa know that the cleaning service had dropped the ball. Within minutes, the local manager arrived and addressed the problem to our satisfaction. This house is a great place to stay if you're trying to find a quiet place that won't break the bank. It is comfortable and sleeps 8 people very nicely.
Dinora E. May 2016
One of the best place to stay in Galveston!!!
Diego R. Apr 2016
The place was nice, felt homey. However, there are a couple of things that need work. The master bedroom has two AC units one of which doesnt even work. The AC thats in the kitchen works but makes a god awful sound so its off putting. Lastly the fridges freezer works great but the fridge part is not great with being cold like it should be. Aside from those details it was a good stay. The place is pretty close to the beach so if you want to go its basically down the street. The Krogers near by made it easy to buy whatever we needed so no need to have to be driving around too much
Manager response:
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home-like feel, and appreciate the feedback that you have provided. Our local property manager has been notified of the condition of the AC and refrigerator and will not be a reoccurring issue. We hope to have you again at Vacasa with your next beach visit!

We (3 couples) rented this home for the 2015 Lone Star Rally.
The home had absolutely NO extra linen (blankets or towels).
There are NO doors on the bedrooms, except for the downstairs bedroom that had the closet doors torn off.
The Gutter on the front of the home near the lower (laundry area) entry was loose an allowing water to run onto the small sitting area.
The downstairs bathroom was horrible. The toilet is 3 feet off of the floor, (2 step to reach the toilet area) and when you flush the toilet it bubbled up into the shower and the smell of raw sewage was horrible.
The home needs some TLC an a very good cleaning.
Absolutely NO PRIVACY in the sleeping areas. Shower head so low, you must bend head to wash hair. Very Disappointed. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate this home a 4.
Manager response:
We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review for us and want to let our guests know that we take guest feedback very seriously. The Property Manager has been given the provided list of inconveniences you experienced during your stay, and he will work with the owner on getting these items addressed. We hope you found the home stocked with what you needed for your stay and that you enjoyed the rally!
Vickie M. Nov 2015
We where there only two days because the house had a small to it and it was not clean. We where eat us by bugs . I will stay at this house again.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. We apologize that the house was not as clean as it should have been for your stay; we will work with housekeeping on making sure our standards of cleanliness are met. We hope you felt cozy and enjoyed the area!
Don S. Sep 2015
This house sets way back off the street and is very hard to find at night. It seems to be set up more for college kids than families. Too many stairs and doors for kids. No dishwasher, but good washer and dryer. Kitchen has dishes for about four people. The pots and pans are old but adequate. It is a good place to crash and play on the island.
Ryan B. Jun 2015
This property was an excellent value, and aside from a few small gripes (refrigerator was not working, the floors were dusty, and we were initially surprised by the surrounding area) it was/is a nice property.

The property itself is tucked away inside a gate, and then you go up a small driveway and in to another small fenced in yard area. The house is very enclosed and you feel pleasantly isolated. The area around the property is an older neighborhood that some (my Mom included) might find "off putting" at first, but we had no problems during our weekend stay.

The property is easily accessed off Broadway and is roughly 10 minutes to The Strand area. The house itself is old but reasonably comfortable, and outside of my allergies "going crazy" due to the older window units, the house was a blessed value to us. What we saved in hotel cost, we spent dining at great restaurants and enjoying great tours and all of the other charms that Galveston has to offer. If you aren't too fussy and your are looking for value, this property could be for you.
