The Yellow Beach House 819 9th St, Galveston, TX 77550

This adorable yellow house sleeps up to eight (six adults maximum) and comes with everything you'll need to create long-lasting memories with your loved ones.

Set off Ninth Street in the main hub of Galveston, you'll find all kinds of attractions and activities at your fingertips. Walk a few blocks to the Gulf to play on the beach, or head out for a delicious meal in a snap.

The interior of this rental is just as bright and cheery as the exterior. Through the front door is a vibrant and welcoming living room complete with a striped sofa, comfy accent chair, and flatscreen TV. Watch movies and your favorite shows at the end of a long day playing on the beach. Or kick your feet up on the ottoman in front of the suede sofa to read a good book.

Continue on to find a wood dining table for eight beneath a beaded chandelier and a galley kitchen. White major appliances and cabinets create a crisp, clean feeling, and everything you need to whip up tasty meals is included! Bring along delicious ingredients and you'll have tasty and budget-friendly meals any time of day. Even the cleanup is a breeze with the dishwasher handy.

Three bedrooms (two each with a king-size bed and one with a twin and twin trundle bed) and two and a half bathrooms are available. One of the bedrooms even has a separate sitting area and kitchenette. With four beds and a queen-size sofabed, all eight travelers (six adults maximum) will have a place to rest their head each night.

More great amenities here include WiFi, cable, and a washer and dryer.

Galveston is bursting with historical sites, activities, and more. This charming home is set on the East End Historic District and is not far from The University of Texas Medical Branch as well. Walk or drive the mile and a half down to the Galveston Island Historical Pleasure Pier to play carnival games, hop on a few rides, and eat tasty food. Spend a full day (or more!) playing on the beach, learning to surf, and simply enjoying the emerald-green Gulf water. Moody Gardens amusement park is seven miles away, and historical sites like Bishop's Palace and the Willis-Moody Mansion are close enough to walk to.

Nothing can quite compare to a stay at this downtown Galveston vacation rental. Book today!

    This house has an interesting layout but it ended up being really functional. Downstairs is it's own big space with full bath, upstairs is the other bedroom with half bath, and the main floor is the shared "party" space with kitchen, living room, and full bath.

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Yellow Beach House! The location was within a few blocks of the beach and also near Seawall, which had stores, restaurants, & gas stations of every description so that everything we needed was easily available. Staying in the beach house was far superior to staying in a hotel because we had much more room, much more privacy, & we could save money by not having to eat every meal in a restaurant unless we wanted to. We also appreciated the convenience of having a washer & dryer available as well as an iron & ironing board, just like being at home!! The kitchen was well-equipped with dishes, most kitchen tools (even a blender, but no mixer), skillet & baking pans, including a cookie sheet, 8" x 8", & 9" x 12" casserole dishes. To summarize, staying in this house was a wonderful experience for us & we would love to come back! After staying in a house, we may never again be content with staying in a hotel on vacation!! Thank you for your hospitality!!

    The yellow guest house was the perfect place for our family and friends. We had plenty of room for everyone and the kids liked the proximity to the beach. We walked to the Strand and admired the victorian houses along the way. All of the kitchen items are top notch which was very nice as we prepared all of our meals at the house. I cannot say enough good things about this place!!

    We were in Galveston for my Son's wedding. We decided to rent a house so that we would have more space and a kitchen. The street level had a king bed, twin trundle and small kitchen with laundry room and full bath. This worked well for my sister and her family. Their was another bedroom and half bath on the third level. Second level was kitchen and living room. House was clean and nicely decorated.

    In town from Bastrop, Texas for the weekend to attend our niece's wedding. Home was in a convenient location to church and reception area. Only a couple of blks from the Seawall.. Parking is very limited. Very comfortable beds as well as trundle and sofa bed. Clean and all the cooking utensils that are needed. This may not be ideal for anyone with issues of climbing stairs..bedrm down and bedrm up. attic bedrm. not good for tall people.

    We enjoyed our stay here. The place was clean and reasonably well appointed and in good shape. Several minor maintenance issues that need to be addressed (one of the toilets didn't flush, one of the TVs didn't work, one dining room chair has a broken leg, one of the tubs drains very slowly), which I reported in further detail to the property manager.

    The ceilings on the first and third floors are very low. I'm 6'5" and couldn't walk up or down parts of the inside stairs while standing up straight, nor stand up straight in much of the first and third floors. If you're much over 6 foot tall, you'll have to be careful to not hit your head in several parts of the house.

    Overall a good experience, we would return.

    Very friendly staff at the reservation and customer care. Had a not-so-good experience with the local person I spoke to on a maintenance issue. They were quick to respond. However the one person I spoke to came across rude and sarcastic. House was very spacious in all areas and comfortable. Very kids friendly.

    The house is very pretty but has many problems. When we arrived there was a note with a phone # and name saying we couldn't use the downstairs restroom. My husband called and the guy said we could use the sink and toilet but not the bathtub, and just said he hadn't had time to get it fixed. We told him that was one of the main reasons we rented that house was for the 2 full baths and 1 half bath. Because there were 7 of us in the house, 5 children and 2 adults. He didn't try to help or make it right, like it was no big deal!! The other Big problem was the closet downstairs was full of flies. I wish I would have taken a pic so everyone could see how bad it was, but we just wanted them dead. No flyswaters anywhere in the house, so we used flip flops to kill them. Still had to go to the store to buy flyswaters because the flies just kept coming. They have to be breeding in there somewhere because no windows were open and they were downstairs and you enter through the second level. VERY NASTY AND DISGUSTING!!!! Also the trash was left in the downstairs kitchen. The outside garbage can was over full so no room to put the trash in had to sit it on top of can. The faucet in the downstairs kitchen was very loose. The upstairs faucet in the shower has a piece that kept falling off also. NO wifi like it said! We also paid extra to extend our stay for 8 hrs. We were very dissatisfied with this house. Not worth your money!!!!!!
