“Exceeded all expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

My husband and I got married here 3 days ago on 5/15/14. We also stayed overnight in the Rainforest Room. We did a very small 6 person wedding & it was such a beautiful & stress-free experience. Connie was amazing from day one! She emailed the day after we reserved the Rainforest Room to ask our breakfast preferences! The beauty of the grounds, the wedding decorations, fresh flowers, string lights, tie back chair covers, arranged seating under the covered patio area, stained glass waterfall & cake table were all so elegant. Connie was extremely attentive to our group without being intrusive. The size of the cake & the amount of champagne was generous. Connie even took a group photo of all of us. When we returned from having lunch elsewhere, our cake was waiting on the little table in the room and my bouquet was placed in a vase with water. The suite looked exactly like it did in pics from the website plus there was an A/C window unit in each room which made it very comfortable. The whale tub was glorious, the breakfast was delicious and elegant - I'm talking orange juice in champagne flutes and tea light candles on the table. Connie is knowledgable about what to do in Galveston & its rich history. This is a super quiet location, very private feeling. We loved having our own patio & the shower big enough for 2, not to mention those yummy chocolate chip cookies waiting for us in the room when we first arrived. We were, and are still, absolutely blown away.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Three of us stayed for the weekend...we took out the South Pacific and the small room that is across the hall, all in the main house. The decor was great...it even had a little patio to sit on and enjoy the ocean breeze! There was a small refrigerator in the room, which was convenient. The bed was amazingly soft and I slept like a baby! As for breakfast, I cannot eat gluten, so she went out of her way to ensure that I didn't miss out on anything yummy! Even left GF cookies in the room for me! It was a pleasurable stay and I plan to return in a couple of weeks!

We stayed in the safari room & my mom in the South Pacific room. Both were great. The breakfasts were amazing & the location easy to get to a lot of places on the island. The owners were super nice & helpful with recommendations on things to do. She was very prompt with the reservations and accommodating. The beach is only a couple blocks away.

We stayed one night here before cruising on the Carnival Magic. Connie was very friendly and the house was elegant yet comfortable. We stayed in the South Pacific room which had a very comfortable bed. Connie's chocolate chip cookies were a perfect treat when we got home from walking around The Strand on Art Night, recommended by Connie. Breakfast was perfect and our stay included a parking voucher to park for 7 nights less than two blocks from the Port terminal at the railroad museum. Skip a hotel and stay here to either enjoy Galveston or as a single night before sailing on a cruise.

Lovely place for a small outdoor wedding. Very charming. The gazebo was beautiful & well decorated. You don't need to add anything for a perfect ceremony! We didn't stay at the B&B, but it looked very nice & well kept.

I stayed at Avenue O B&B last year also in the Safari Room. It is both unique and comfortable. A new wooden floor had been installed since that first time. The bathroom is a trifle old but functional and clean. Connie is an amicable hostess whose smile will instantly put you at ease. She welcomes everyone with equal enthusiasm and makes you feel right at home from the initial, "Hello." Her breakfasts are outstanding and the freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies left in your room during the afternoon are much appreciated after a full day's play in Galveston. I strongly recommend Avenue O B&B.

Connie and Jim are down to earth and comfortable to be around. Main house is antique with hippy touches. They know area and are helpful, thoughtful of ones' comfort. The beds and pillows are down ; so if one is allergic ; the feathers , rugs and cat hair might be a bother but all in all ; the two nights I spent was a home away from home. The breakfast is made for a king and large enough for a hungry man.The place is best for couples having a * romantic time or just married consummating relations.
