Furnished king sized bed in Captains Quarters, situated down stairs with full sized bath. Up-stairs are 3bedrooms along with sleeping for 8people. House is ideal for families coming with children, over 12 else mature adults which like to have great time.

Relax outside and listen to the pleasant sounds of waves from beach or the cruise ships horn. Enjoy sipping favorite drink at any of three porches then get up early morning, view the romantic sunsets or leisurely walk at beach. Breathtaking beach is about 4blcoks away and features lots of food, shopping, umbrellas or chairs for rentals. The spot at beach is ideal for watching morning surfers. Plenty of these finest restaurants at island are pet friendly. Sizzling night life is walk able to Mermaid. Also if our guests get chance to attend church at island. Few of oldest churches are perfectly located in Galveston and services are unforgettable.

Note : Mermaid is the house listed along with screened porch for common southern summers nights which needs mosquitoes protection . Mermaid offers picket fences and parking area.

Fast food is at 23 and seawall for cheap eats with the kids or fine dining is also steps away. This house is 7 blocks from the downtown strand area for all day shopping and entertainment. This location is idea for Mardi Gras or Lone Star Rally You will be in the heart of everything. Yet at night when you lay your head down it is away for the night live and very quiet.
You can hear the cruise ships honking as you lay in bed in the morning or at 5 pm before they pull away.
If you can fit in service at the church, don't miss it.
You will be located in the historical part of Galveston where the houses of worship were built by immagrents paying for their passage from Europe in the 1800"s.. The wood work and stain glass is unforgetable.

Vacation Renting for the first time!

July 17, 2012

My family and I stayed here July 9-15.We loved the homes historic yet homey feeling. The homes location is great, it's near most attractions. The only downfall is that it rained all 6 days we where there and, there aren't many indoor activities that we found for the kids to do. We will definitely be contacting Mrs. Ramona again for our next getaway!!!!
