PhotoGulfview Retreat is a totally renovated, raised cottage in Galveston's historic East End, one block from Seawall Blvd, and a short walk to the Pleasure Pier. It is perfect for Houstonians looking to get away for a long weekend, for visitors wanting a one-week summer vacation with the kids, and for our "snowbirder" friends who love our mild winters. We have welcomed guests from across Texas and the U.S., from Canada, Mexico, and Europe. You will enjoy the ocean breeze and view of the Gulf of Mexico from our balcony.

The home is designed to be casual, with all the conveniences our guests expect from a vacation rental, including central AC, satellite TV, free local phone calls and internet access, and on-site washer/dryer. It is decorated in a colorful, retro, mid-century modern style, with totally refinished hardwood floors, modern appliances, and original artwork by Houston area artists. All linens, towels, and beach towels are provided.

We strive to make your stay with us relaxing and enjoyable, and have been pleased that our guests enjoy their "home away from home". Our managers live full-time in the neighborhood, and are available should any questions or concerns arise, or if you'd like recommendations on restaurants, beaches, shopping areas, and excursions. We are 5 minutes from the Strand Historical District, Cruise Terminals, and UTMB.

Since we love dogs, we don't charge extra for your bringing one small-medium dog. Unlike many Island rentals, our fees fees include all housecleaning and reservation charges, as well as 15% Texas hotel occupancy tax.

We look forward to having you and your family as our guests at Gulfview Retreat.

$185 per night (2 night minimum)
$925 (low season)/$1200 (high season) per week
