    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    The 19th Street Retreat, just 1.5 blocks from the beach and a few blocks to the Historic Strand, welcomes you. This historic building was built on soil transported to the Island for building Galveston's Seawall immediately after the hurricane of 1900 and sits a block from of the renowned Galvez Hotel built in 1911. The Retreat was constructed by craftsmen over 100 years ago using cypress and teak left from the ships destroyed by the storm.
    This once proud duplex with separate entrances, upstairs and downstairs, withstood its first 100 years of living, loving, and facing the elements when we bought her in 2005. She needed lots of TLC to restore her to the quality at inception.

The location was perfect, just a few blocks from the beach. Mr. Terry took the time to give us a tour of the house and give us direction to places. The house was in perfect condition, it had everything that we could possibly need and more!! We really enjoyed our stay and we are looking forward to future stays. Thank... more

Management response:

When a guest takes the time to leave a feedback, it means a lot to me. My goal is to let each guest know that I value their time, their thoughts, and strive to make their stay trouble-free and comfortable. Bottom line, I never stop trying to demonstrate by actions that I care. Thanks for your kind words. more

We rented this house for the weekend of my wedding. It was me, my fiancé (now husband), my bridesmaids and his groomsmen. The house was in a perfect location-not far from the beach and other attractions/restaurants. The property was also gorgeous and kept in great condition. It had a cozy and antique feel, but was also roomy enough for 10... more
