Are you looking for an exclusive locale for your vacation this year? A private getaway, with all the charm of a bed and breakfast but all
the privacy of your own home?
Look no further than the Grand Victorian in Galveston. This spectacular 1884 home is exquisite,
and is a favorite of Galveston's Historic Homes Tour (it's been featured three times). What do
they love about it? The amazingly detailed woodwork throughout the home, the six fireplace mantels,
three sets of pocket doors, the soaring ceilings, the amazing staircase.
But it isn't the kind of house that makes you feel intimidated. You're welcome to put your feet
on the furniture, play hide and seek with your kids, enjoy a second glass of wine on the porch. The
house may be a castle, but you're definitely the king (or queen).
And, as they say, it's good to be the king. There are over 1000 square feet of porches in the Grand Victorian
with the largest ones conveniently located right next to your private pool, so you can hear the relaxing sounds
of the waterfall. The pool is saltwater and heated in the off season so you can swim throughout the whole year!
The heated saltwater pool isn't the only upgrade to this wonderful home. No expense has been spared
to bring this home firmly into the 21st century. There's central air throughout the house. The award-
winning kitchen is a cook's dream-with a dual oven (great for cookies!) and a welcoming island to
gather around. Of course, there's also a great breakfast area off the kitchen, complete with a flat
screen television to watch the morning news or keep the kids occupied while you enjoy your coffee.
There are five televisions in the house, three DVD players and a VCR to help you through any bad
weather days. And the bathrooms have all been renovated-whether you're looking for a wonderful soak
in a clawfoot tub, or a bracing shower in a modern granite masterpiece...you can find it all here.
The four bedrooms sleep up to eight guests. In addition, we also provide two pack-and-plays, a sleeper
chair and an air mattress for larger groups.
You owe it to yourself, and to your friends and family to enjoy the best vacation in town. We're located
within walking distance of the Strand, and within two blocks of some of the best dining on the island-
including the Original Mexican Cafe (two doors away), the Sunflower Bakery (1 block) and the Mosquito
Grill (2 blocks). And they all offer takeout-in case you want to order some food and enjoy it in your
private getaway (we are big fans of homemade salsa and chips by the pool!)
Call us today for more information. The Grand Victorian is pet-free and smoke-free, so you can leave your allergies
at home. We're 10 blocks from the beach, and less than six miles from Moody Gardens.
