About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 1-6

SPICE ISLAND

This Galveston beach bungalow style house was built in the 1930’s. Sometime during the 1940’s the bungalow was divided up into several 1 bedroom ‘shotgun’ style apartments.

The house, Oasis, now has three beautiful, but distinctly different apartments. Each one took on their own personality and feel as we restored and furnished them.

Apartment # 1 is lovingly referred to as 'Spice Island'. You will fall in love Spice Island's architectural features, from built in bookshelves, graceful arches to a stained glass window in the bathroom. Let the apartment's natural lighting and island breezes wash over you and transport you to simpler time and place.

The front porch is the perfect place to have a morning tea or coffee as you watch the sunrise over the water or relax in the cool evening breeze with a ginger beer or a vanilla shake.

Spice Island is perfectly located for all Galveston activities. A block away the historic Pleasure Pier, beach and seawall awaits you. The view from the porch will allow you to know right away if you should take your surf board or fishing pole with you to the water. If the beach is not on your agenda, a healthy walk or pleasant bike ride through the beautiful Silk Stocking district will take you to Galveston's historical downtown. Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark is a short 15m drive down the scenic seawall.

We enjoyed our stay, clean and close to the beach. Walking distance to the Pleasure Pier and Murdocks. We discovered beach towels, and washer and dryer downstairs on our third day there. Would definitely stay again.

Property as described. Keyless entry was great for going to the ocean. You can be from the front door to ocean in less then 5 min. Lots of places to eat within 10 min walk.

Galveston Island is a barrier island on the beautiful Texas coast, less than an hour south of Houston. Leave the hustle and bustle behind and step back in time to one of the most important cities on the gulf coast during the late 1800 hundreds. The amazing architecture and the beautiful ocean views are worth a visit all by themselves; then add in the next 100 years changes from pop culture to beach living and you have a perfect vacation waiting to happen. To top it all off the Historic Pleasure Pier is just across the street with all it's sites and sounds, restaurants and bars within walking distance.
