We only stayed for one night, but Dave went out of his way to make sure we felt welcome. When it came to meals and snack, options for everyone, including those with allergies were taken care of. Rooms ar cozy and the porches quite enjoyable, especially in the early morning.

This B&B was extremely nice. The room was on the 3rd floor, which posed no problems for us. The place was impeccably clean and so comfortable. David pointed out places to visit while we were there for the evening before our cruise. Parking was easy and even had cruise parking included. The breakfast was delicious and the house itself was...

We were looking for some place a little different to spend a couple of days before a cruise and decided to try a B&B. This was our first bed & breakfast experience and it will certainly be hard to top it. This was a fabulous stay. Dave is the perfect host – from the gourmet breakfasts to the freshly baked...

Dave and Maria were awesome innkeepers- so helpful! The location is so central for anywhere you want to walk to in Galveston. The neighborhood felt very safe and friendly. We loved walking everywhere. The rooms were classic, quiet and very comfortable. On a trip to Galveston, we would not consider staying anywhere else. We went for a cruise but absolutely...

This home was built in 1890, it survived the 1909 storm, had another floor added to it to become a 3 story home. Cannot say enough about the service, the meals, the truly professional manner of the owner and his wife. The rooms are decorated with antiques, it is an older home but very modern in the remodel. Terrific garden...

When my husband and I visited Galveston for our anniversary this year, we wanted to stay in a historic home. The guesthouse was really secure with a modern locking system on all doors. The house itself is very lovely, comfortable, and decorated with a sensitivity to its historic past. We walked through the preserved neighborhood to the new Bryan Southwestern...
