The home is furnished with an eclectic blend of antique and contemporary design elements with a splash of the South Pacific thrown in. Avenue O offers all the amenities of a large hotel with the ambiance of a private island retreat.

I could not have chosen a better place to stay for our wedding night. The atmosphere was amazing and Connie (our host) was the icing on the cake--- always helpful, understanding, and a great cook to top it off! Would reccommend to anyone!

A quaint B&B with charm. An older home feel and with all the unusual decorations and pieces of art adds to the ambiance. Breakfast was awesome and meeting others that stayed overnight was great. Close to the seawall shops and restaurants and not far from the Moody Gardens and Shlitterbaum.

Avenue O was an exceptional place to stay. The rooms were very nice, what you would expect in an older home, with modern conveniences provided. The cookies in the room daily were a nice touch, but the breakfasts were the highlight. We felt pampered and well taken care of. The hostess was knowledgeable about attractions in the area and had good recommendations on places to dine as well as visit.

We had a marvelous stay at Avenue O B&B! The room was clean, private and well provisioned. I will definitely stay there on my next visit! And Connie's homemade cookies are to die for!

The room was comfortable. It could use a bigger mirror somewhere. The hospitality was great. I am not a big traveler so the value was what I expected. The garbage was not taken out from the previous tenants. The food was excellent.
