About Michelle Robach

We have several vacation homes on the TX Gulf Coast. We love to vacation in Galveston. The house has been remodeled with tasteful beach furnishings. This will be the first time it has been featured as a beach rental. We do own two others on the coast that have been on the rental program for years.

Michelle Robach purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle Robach chose Texas Gulf Coast

We decided to buy in the city of Galveston. There is so much to do and we found ourselves always in Galveston enjoying everything it has to offer.

This home is short walk of 4 blocks to the beach and a few more to the new Pleasure Pier. Restaurants are located walking distance from the home. One of our favorite restaurants is Queens BBQ and it is 2 blocks to the house. The have the best Peach Cobbler.

Vintage Charm with Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is 2 blocks from the beach and was a perfect location for our 4th of July vacation. We parked our cars and brought our bikes. We did not have to deal with parking or driving the whole time we were there. We were super close to everything so we biked everywhere. The house is beautiful and just like the pictures. It is an older refurbished vintage home so it has all of that historical charm with the comfort of modern amenities. The owner, Michelle, was a joy to work with and goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend this home to anyone thinking of staying on Galveston. I know my family would love to stay there again.

Charming family beach house in perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for our spring break stay with 4 adults and 5 kids. So many beautiful original touches in this well-preserved old house, but all the creature comforts of a newly remodeled vacation home. The house is walkable to the beach and Pleasure Pier. It was nice to sit on the porch with coffee or just lounge in the family room. Kids loved the games and the bunk beds. I wished there was a dresser in the master bedroom, but all in all a great value. We'd stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I can look at putting a small dresser in the Master. We have not done so because we like the large amount of open space in the Master bedroom. It gives a lot of room to freely move around. We do have the two ottomans in the master to use for your suitcases. I am glad you enjoyed the house. Michelle
