7BR House Vacation Rental in Galveston, Texas

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Oct 18, 2019

7 BR/7 BA Historic Beachfont Villa, Centrally Located

Located in: Galveston
Seawall house is located on Galveston’s Seawall at 18th Street, between The Galvez Hotel and the Holiday Inn Express and is closer to the gulf and beach than either hotel.

On the first floor, a large veranda and covered porch overlook the ocean and provide a great place to eat, have a cocktail or to just sit and watch the gulf or the parade of people.

On the second floor the two south bedrooms front on a large porch equipped with swing hammock, chaise and chairs. On clear nights, ships shimmer like stars lighting the horizon as they make their way to Houston or from it to all corners of the world.

A deck accessed by the third floor loft looks out on the gulf and the city is great for sunbathing.

Seawall house has four bedrooms on the second floor and one bedroom on the first floor. The third floor loft has two bunks, but it is accessed by any steep stair more like a ladder.

The main house is equipped with dominions, cards, poker chips, board games a ping-pong table and a small library of books. There, reluctantly, we provide cable and TV, but it is hoped that guests will take advantage of the unique opportunities offered by the house to get back in touch with each other, have a good read or enjoy the sea and sky and will postpone any addictions to electronics until their return to the real work-a-day world. For the digitally addicted, a high-speed Internet connection is provided.

The back patio is also a great place to have lunch. There the level of activity lessens. Lay in the hammock under the logia and be enveloped in the tropical foliage.

Two one bedroom apartments sit on the north of the patio and both have offer views of the gulf.

The house was built in 1914 by Frederick Langbin, one of the original investor’s in the Galvez hotel who intended the home as a residence for his sister and her daughter. It was constructed of poured reinforced concrete and was the first house so constructed in Texas. The style is similar to that of some Frank Loyd Wright structures. Unfortunately Galveston was not to the taste of Mr. Langbin’s sister who returned to England with her daughter after a stay of only a few years.

The home incorporated such anti-hurricane features as small lights (panes) in the multi-light windows which were much stronger and a Spanish tile roof, now gone. The home went through the 1915 hurricane with nary a scratch.

The house is furnished with an eclectic mix of fine antiques, carpets which accent the cypress, oak, and long leaf pine wood work in the house along with comfortable resort style furniture. There are many nooks to enjoy.

Your may lease the entire estate consisting of the Big House, and two courtyard apartments may be leased -- 7 bedrooms plus the sleeping loft, 3 gulf-view porches, the court yard or you may chose just one of the properties.
