“First time to stay at Bed and Breakfast excellent!”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

My husband and I were celebrating our one year and it was a very romantic getaway! We also enjoyed meeting the other guests that stayed there. The Bed and Breakfast experience is definitely the way to go when traveling as a couple :) Our hostess Connie was amazing and the different themed rooms were a delight and the breakfast was delicious! We also had a great time on the island lots to do!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Safari room and it gave a bit more privacy because it is separate from the main hou...

My husband and I stayed in the rainforest room in July for our honeymoon. The price was very affordable and the room was great. The whale was definitley the highlight of our trip. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. Connie is in an excellecent hosts and even sent us home with home made cookies for a ride home.

We also had the in room massage which was excellent and we also got the romance package which was a surpise for my husband and he loved it! We were not sure what to expect as this was our first time staying in a bed breakfast and it definitley set a high bar for any other bed and breakfast we will stay at.

This was our first visit to Galveston ( and to Texas), coming from England, and our first experience of a B and B in Texas. What a great introduction! Connie was a perfect host, and made her home and garden most welcoming to us guests. We stayed 3 nights in the Safari Room,which is in a small annexe in the garden. The room was delightful, cosy and quirky, decorated with materials and objects to give a "safari" ambience, and it worked well. Connie's breakfasts were really tasty, and generous, so much so that we never wanted any more food until the evening. The house itself is situated in a quiet neighborhood, with tree line streets, a very short drive to the sea area to the south, and the harbor/Strand/shopping area to the north. We think Avenue O represents very good value for money, and an excellent haven for relaxing. Connie was very helpful , especially in reccomending a cheap tire company when our hire car got a flat.

Room Tip: The shower room in the Safari room may not accomodate a tall person ( over 5ft 9ins) with ease ( ok...

We have gone to the Avenue O B&B several times and have stayed in all four of the available rooms. They are quiet and comfortable. Connie is very knowledgeable and friendly, yet she gives you lots of "space" while you are there. Staying there is a truly relaxing experience.

Room Tip: We particularly like the South Pacific room.

The service was incredible. The room was lovely; the linens made me want to curl up and not arise. But then, Avenue O is the perfect location and accessibility to sunrise/sunset walks on the beach. The breakfast was one of the best I remember and I met a young honeymoon couple I thoroughly enjoyed. This is a stay I will long remember. During this time, I completed the writing of my first children's book and I can't think of a better, quieter, more inviting place to work or play.

Room Tip: The European Suite is off the back of the main house. Stairs are required but the quietness is wort...

We had a wonderful time here! Connie is such a wonderful hostess and gave us great advice on what to do around town. We really felt right at home and the breakfasts were fantastic! Although, we did not bring our dog, I was very pleased to find out that this B and B is PET FRIENDLY. We look forward to visiting again soon, and bringing our dog with us next time. Also, the B and B is only a few blocks away from the beach, which was VERY clean, by the way. Despite what I'd previously heard, there was no seaweed or debris from IKE invading the shores at all. All the public beaches are kept very clean. This is a great city in which to walk around and meet new people.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and have their own RR.

I stayed her for a weekend getaway memorial day weekend. The room rate was very reasonable. Connie was there to check us in when we arrived, even though it was late. We stayed in the south pacific room, which was very spacious. The bathroom had a shower and 2 person jacuzzi tub. The bedroom was large, had a small tv w dvd player, small fridge, and all the ammenitites you'd expect from a hotel. There is also a private deck overlooking the gardens which was a nice touch. Breakfast was excellent and connie was very accomodating. Great value, great service, great room. The decor is a little tacky, but that didn't bother me.
