About Melissa Stone

We love spending time with our children and being outdoors! We enjoy boating, fishing, playing golf, and traveling. Our home is in Nassau Bay near Galveston where we live with our two dogs Dixie and Lizzy.

Melissa Stone purchased this house in 2014

Why Melissa Stone chose Galveston

Galveston has a rich history! Our home was built by a local architect for Nathaniel Spence in 1906. We love the open feel of the home and the laid back atmosphere that is pure Galveston! It is located in a quiet neighborhood with security and privacy for our family and guests. Lush tropical gardens and great outdoor gathering spaces make for a relaxing stay! View the lights from the Pleasure Pier from the upper porch!

What makes this house unique

This beautiful home has an open feeling with many of the original features! High ceilings, stained glass windows and gorgeous mouldings! Double Doors upstairs and a clawfoot tub in the bath! Property is surrounded by a high privacy fence with an electric gate. Outdoor brick patio areas are surrounded by lush landscaping. Wash off the kids and the dog at our outdoor shower area. Toy Shed has a Stand Up Paddle Board, Surf Board, Boogie Boards, Beach Chairs, Beach Shade Shelter, Portable Gas Grill, Charcoal Grill/Smoker, Rolling Cooler, and two bikes. TV in living area as well as a smart TV and Blue Ray player in the upstairs area! Large ice maker to fill up that cooler! Board games for the kids! Well behaved house trained dogs are welcome!

Rented the house for an overnight leadership retreat. Property owner easy to communicate with and very helpful. Beautiful, well-kept home with lots of extras. Homes immediately surrounding were also well kept which lent to the charm and safe -feel of the property. HIGHLY recommended!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our 33 year old daughter and her 2 kids for a long weekend to Galveston. This house had more than enough room. It was such a beautiful home with everything you could possibly need. We walked to the beach once, but drove the other times, only because we brought lots of stuff to the beach with us. The beds were comfy and we loved the outside seating areas to have our coffee in the morning. We will be back!

Beautiful home.. Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Melissa's home was fantastic! Beautifully renovated while still retaining its historic charm. We were a family if 6 and we had plenty of room. Tastefully decorated with all we needed! Well stocked kitchen, bathroom essentials, backyard toys and beach equipment! Convenient walk to the Seawall, just a few blocks and about a 20 min walk to the Strand. Hotel Galvez was only 2 blocks away. Melissa was very responsive and graciously allowed us to check in early! I would highly recommend her home and would definitely stay Again. Thank you Melissa for making our vacation memorable!

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had our first annual girl cousins' reunion in Galveston at The Captain's Quarters this month, June. There were 10 of us women from all over the country. We were just in love with this house, its charm, the history -- well, everything about it. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we will definitely do this again! The owner could not have been nicer or more hospitable. This rates five stars in my book!

Plenty of space and lots of character in a great part of Galveston

  • 5 of 5

Short walk to the beach, beautifully decorated, well stocked with everything you need for a great trip to the beach. Owners are great at communication and easy to contact and work with. Secured parking area for one car inside the gate on the back patio and ability to park others on street. Upper and lower huge decks are great for looking out at the hotel Galvez and ocean.
