Historic home in walkable location by dining & attractions

Renovated and remodeled, this historic 1878 Galveston home offers room for everyone to enjoy a group getaway. Built by Michael Shaw, known for naming the downtown historic district The Strand, you'll love a prime location that puts you close to the ocean and local attractions.

About a mile from the sun-soaked shores of Porretto Beach and about seven miles from the family-friendly destination of the Moody Gardens, this home will make it easy to dive into Texas-sized fun! Spend a day kayaking through Offatts Bay, or maybe rent a jet ski to skip across the waves. Check out the newest exhibits at the Moody Gardens before flying down the waterslide at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark!

Step into this bright and cheery home after a long day of exploring and grab an ice-cold drink in the fully equipped kitchen. The central air-conditioning will beat back the heat on warm days while the private washer/dryer takes care of the laundry. Sit out on the covered patio while the kids play in the fenced yard.

You can easily connect to the free WiFi to check the forecast before you plan your next adventure. Check out the sports scores on cable or make some popcorn and watch your favorite movie on the Blu-ray player. End the day with a nightcap out on the porch and spend a quiet moment with your special someone.

With the beach as your playground and the variety of local attractions at your fingertips, the only hard thing will be deciding where you start the fun when you book your trip to this historic Galveston home.
