The space

Galene is the Greek goddess of calm seas and we hope a good omen for our home and the island. We also hope she inspires calm and relaxing stays.

Our house is a two bedroom, each bedroom outfitted with a queen bed. There is also a daybed with trundle in the living room. The house can accommodate up to six adults. Galene’s Haven is decorated in calming sea greens and whites. It has original hardwood floors, one bathroom, a kitchen equipped to suit your needs, and a washer and dryer. There is a vintage record cabinet and a collection of fun records in the living room for your enjoyment – this completes the transformation into relaxation mode! The front porch has Adirondack chairs with pull out ottomans – perfect for enjoying morning coffee or a cocktail in the evening. We are 100% Texas Wind powered!

The house is in a great location and nothing is too far. We are ½ a mile to the seawall – an easy 10 min walk. We have beach gear and towels available for your use. The Spot is also a ½ mile away – a great place to relax with drinks and snacks.

What a great place! Check in was a breeze via key pad, house was very clean and well decorated. Beds were super comfortable! AC worked fantastically even in the dog days of August. Shower had excellent pressure. Kitchen was well appointed and we cooked multiple meals in it. Neighborhood was great and house was in an excellent location - basically halfway between the Seawall and the Strand with a local Hispanic market nearby for great groceries. We spent a lot of time on the front porch which has great shade cover in the morning. Our friend who is big on records loved the record player and the record selection. Communication with hosts before and after was also excellent and appropriate. We would definitely stay here again!

What a beautiful house! Everything you need for modern comfort is there, without sacrificing historical character and unique style. Sarah and Roice care deeply about this house. We spend a lot of time just hanging out on the front porch. Walks in the neighborhood are wonderful.

We are Texas natives and love Galveston. We both spent childhood vacations on the island. We love to travel, cook, and dine out. We have great restaurant recommendations - just ask! We love learning about local cultures and "where the locals go" when we travel. We hope that your stay in our home will be relaxing and refreshing.
