Located in the historic Silk Stocking District just blocks from the beach and minutes from the Strand, this 1923 Mediterranean style Bed and Breakfast exhibits a comfortable elegance throughout.

Originally constructed for Henry Truehart Adriance, a partner in the first chartered realty firm in Galveston, the property continued as a private residence until 2002. It was then purchased by Jim and Connie Porter for the purpose of converting it into an island retreat. Prior to moving to Galveston, Jim and Connie were long-time residents of the South Pacific and this influence can be seen throughout the house. The house sits on a third of an acre lot surrounded by lush tropical foliage, making it an ideal setting for a romantic getaway or just a break from the workaday world.

While Avenue O offers the amenities of a large hotel, it maintains the special ambiance and personalized service of a home away from home. From the time you enter this unique and warm Galveston Bed and Breakfast, you will experience the true meaning of Island Hospitality.

The Dining and Living rooms are decorated with an eclectic blend of contemporary and antique. Both offer comfort and space to relax and gather for conversation, reading, playing games, or just doing nothing. The patio offers ample outdoor seating for protected enjoyment of the lovely landscaped grounds.

Specialties of the house include free parking while aboard a cruise ship with a one night's stay, a full breakfast served in the dining room, and an outdoor grill available for those who must have their barbeque fix.
