Flamingo Point

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 7, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Cats, Dogs allowed.

Galveston, TX 77550 United States

This 1874 sq ft home has survived both the 1900 Storm and Hurricane Ike that landed in 2008. This home features hardwood floors, large rooms, and a fenced in backyard that screams relaxation and entertainment! Upon entering the 2 story home, the living area is immediately to the left and has a flat screen TV, connected to surround sound and a Blue Ray player that connects to the internet. Guests have access to unlimited movies, documentaries and TV shows through Netflix and Amazon on-demand. Continuing on through to the dining area there is a large dining table with enough seating for 8. This room is nestled between the living area and kitchen to grab the best of both worlds, whether gathering for a meal or playing games and conversing. Toward the back of the house, the long kitchen is fully equipped with all the dinner and cookware you will need to prepare that gourmet meal. There is a bistro style table with seating for 2 by the window overlooking the backyard to enjoy that morning cup of coffee. Off to the left of the Kitchen is a ½ bath and laundry room. Three bedrooms and 2 baths are located up the stairs. The master has a king sized, sleep by number bed to get that perfect night of rest. The newly remodeled master bathroom is fit for a King with a jetted garden tub and a separate shower enclosure with a seated area. Down the hall, the 2nd bedroom has a queen sized bed and is adjoined to a full bath with a claw footed tub, and the 3rd bedroom. The last room contains a twin size bed, with a trundle and a lazy boy sleeper chair that folds out into an additional twin bed. The backyard has been completely re-done with relaxation and entertaining in mind that includes a covered patio area with plenty of seating to enjoy the fresh sea air, gas and charcoal grills, outdoor shower with hot and cold water and an 8ft fence for privacy. Flamingo Point is the place to stay if you’re looking for comfort and all of the amenities of home. This home located in heart of Galveston’s Historical District and is in walking distance to the historic Strand, local restaurants and art galleries on Post Office street.

    a guest from Spring, TX recommends this vacation rental

    This was the first time we have ever stayed or rented a house. Normally we enjoy the B&B experience. As "Newbies" some of the things we thought as "different" may be normal for a house rental. When we arrived that night we were amazed the hot water wasn't...the next morning I found out the hot water tank had to be turned on! Found later in the email I had been sent, (under the house info paragraph) "You may have to turn on the hot water heater" I assumed the paragraph When You Arrive had all that was needed to get going. The other item we were wondering about was the requirement on leaving was to sweep (both the inside and outside), not only load the dishes, but once they were clean put them away...we wondered why we didn't have to put the sheets in the washer and dryer and back on the bed. I understand a request to sweep and empty trash cans. Sweeping the outside seemed a bit much, as did waiting for the dishes to finish to put them away. Our question, did a cleaning crew come in after us or were we the cleaning crew for the next rental? My main gripe being we had to leave by 11 AM. Cooking breakfast, cleaning the kitchen after breakfast, putting out all the trash (which I was expecting to do) and then sweeping, stripping the beds, along with finishing up packing the kitchen and cleaning supplies we brought, and our typical travel luggage items...If we weren't early risers, there was no way we would have made it out the door by 11 AM. Now with all of that, the house itself was very comfortable. The kitchen is very modern and nicely put together. We enjoyed the outside patio area. The BBQ grill...the people that used it last did not clean it or turn off the gas. (both things are items that should be done every time it is used) The grill is now cleaner than when we arrived. This experience has given us another choice instead of a B&B, knowing what we do, more questions will be asked and we will be more prepared.

    Exceptionally clean, beautiful, cozy and well kept home! Loved the artwork and overall decor. Home also close to everything (beaches, food, The Strand). The absolute favorite part was the kind and friendly neighbors that made excellent recommendations on how to enjoy our trip. Ms. Archuletta was also prompt and assisted us with everything we needed. Thanks!

    J.D. H from Garland, TX recommends this vacation rental

    This is a neat old home located within walking distance (although it was a fairly long walk in July evening heat) of Galveston's downtown / Strand / waterfront. Having three couples in our group, the one knock on the property (like other have mentioned) is that it only has a shower in the master and one outdoors. Not a big deal, but something to consider. Also within easy walking distance of Original Tex Mex and a great breakfast cafe.

    My girlfriends and I really enjoyed this house! The house itself is lovely, well decorated and comfortable. The patio is amazing, and we spent most of our time out there. Billie at the rental office was exceptional to work with and very helpful. I would highly recommend this place. The only thing to be aware of is that there is only 1 shower (2 bathtubs), which can be a challenge for 6 ladies getting ready to go out to dinner!

    a guest from Liberty Hill, TX recommends this vacation rental

    This home was such a wonderful place to stay in. Great location within walking distance of the Historic District, fantastic and beautiful old Victorian home tastefully updated without losing its old charm (the 130 year old staircase was gorgeous). Modern elegant kitchen and bathrooms. By far one of the best features was the backyard pavilion with comfy outdoor chairs, a grill (which we didn't have time to use) and cozy bistro lights strung around the perimeter. I think you can tell we really loved this place! Our previous trips to Galveston have been in hotels. Not any more.

    The many positive reviews of this home are accurate! This place is a great find. There aren't photos of the back patio & it's an excellent living area. We spend a fair amount of time out there. You couldn't ask for a better location. The neighborhood is one I would love to live in. We were delighted with this vacation rental.

    Leslie C from Kyle, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We've rented a few vacation homes before and I must say that this house exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully renovated with modern amenities and comforts, yet captured the history of the house. It was very convenient to the hot spot in Galveston and we were able to walk to lunch and dinner nearly every night without having to repeat a place to eat. I have this place bookmarked to stay in it again on our next vacation to Galveston.

    Marcia M from Neenah, Wi recommends this vacation rental

    The description of the property is thorough and accurate, so there's no need to repeat that here. We stayed for two months from February to beginning of April, and enjoyed every minute. The best part is the location, as we were only about half a mile from downtown Galveston, and frequently walked to the piers, Katie's Seafood, the Strand, library, Visitor's Center, and many of the downtown restaurants. We loved the way this house had been restored, with a modern kitchen and master bath. The outdoor patio and front porch were popular once the weather warmed up.
    If you plan a lengthy stay, you might want to be aware of the following:
    The t.v. has very limited channels, and we had to resort to our laptop and an HDMI cord in order to watch ESPN and other sports programming. The kitchen is roomy and well-stocked with dishes and cookware, but there is no room for groceries since many of the cabinets are locked. The two upstairs bathrooms are accessible only by walking through a bedroom, and only one has a shower. There is one closet for you, and it is in the middle bedroom. There is limited drawer space for the middle bedroom and no drawers for the front bedroom. That room could use a dresser.
    This is a beautifully restored older home and we would definitely return except it is a little pricey for us, especially because we hope to stay for three months next year.

    Jan J from Gordon, WI recommends this vacation rental

    I am thoroughly enjoying my stay in this delightful home, one that survived the 1900 hurricane and has been lovingly restored by its owners. It is a place to spend leisurely days rocking on the front porch, swinging on the porch swing in the back yard, entertaining in the formal dining room or enclosed back yard. The location is perfect for anyone who enjoys strolling past old Victorian mansions and homes. It is within walking distance of the bay, beach, The Strand, and many wonderful restaurants.

    It has been a perfect retreat for me as I write my next novel (which is set here in Galveston - a charming city rich in history and culture.) Highly recommended!

    Beautiful historic home that was very comfortable for our family of four and our dogs. Fully stocked kitchen, gorgeous back yard/patio area. Comfortable beds. Walking distance to great restaurants as well as the strand. Super nice neighborhood. There is a gap in the skirting of the house in back that needs to be closed off as we kept losing the dogs to adventures under the house. But otherwise very pet friendly.

    a guest from Princeton, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    This house exceeded my expectations in terms of providing a genuine historical experience of Galveston, as well as in being well-appointed and comfortable. The location was really great for a person like me -- who appreciates a quiet retreat, but being within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, etc..

    The listing says that it will sleep 7, but unless you are tiny people, I wouldn't try that. There were four of us (no couples, and all over 6' tall), and only two of us had big enough beds. But those two beds were awesome! One of them was a king-size, four poster, with a very comfortable mattress. Oh, one other thing: the windows don't have black-out curtains, so beware if you have trouble sleeping in light.
