“Very nice house that surpasses expectations!”

Always a little leery staying in a place you have never seen, but the Watermelon House was AMAZING! There were six of us that stayed including two children and two elderly. We were more than thrilled with the house. From the cleanliness, location, decor, comfort of the beds, and wonderful owner, we were so happy with our decision to stay here. It made for an extremely relaxing, worry free vacation. I highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed.

We are so glad you enjoyed the house. I have added more cookware for those wanting to enjoy cooking and dinner at home after a long day. We would love to have your family come back to stay with us anytime and enjoy the eclectic uniqueness of Galveston!

really loved the house and the fact that it wasn't too far from the beach(walking distance), they had everything we needed.
