25th Anniversary Vacation

5 on August 05, 2014

Maria and Dave bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne icing in a bucket on our anniversary, They had great suggestions on everything from best beach, places to eat, sights to see and where to shop. They were like walking encyclopedias on Galveston. We will definitely stay with Maria and Dave when we return and would recommend everyone to stay at the Lost Bayou Guesthouse.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure meeting you and we enjoyed very much visiting with you during your stay. We hope to see you again soon.

I am not a fan of B&B's but will return to the Lost Bayou. Maria&Dave are wonderful hosts. Give guests their privacy! Place is spotless! Maria is a great cook. Came as a guest, leave as a friend!

Wonderful time! Thank you, Dave and Maria!

My mother and I stayed overnight (Monday - Tuesday) in the Santa Fe room. Beautiful home, rooms, and wonderful hospitality. We would definitely go back. Only suggestion to Dave and Maria would be to put a fan in the third-story bathroom for the summer. Other than that, everything was outstanding. Thank you.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your review. It was a pleasure meeting both of you. Also thank you for your feedback regarding the fan. We will definite look into adding one to the bathroom.


Gracious hospitality

This is a lovely place to pass the evenings when in Galveston. We were on the third floor, with a private bath. Safe secure and quiet. We got a great night's sleep and interesting conversation at breakfast!

Innkeeper Response

A very welcoming, perfect birthday weekend!

Dave and Maria are outstanding host. Enjoyed a remarkable birthday weekend "getaway" at the Lost Bayou House. They accommodated every need and request I had. Most definitely would do it all over again.

Our stay at Lost Bayou Guesthouse

Lost Bayou Guesthouse is very peaceful. It is in a charming neighborhood, walking distance to the beach. Great food and the bicycles are a bonus.

Cruise stop over

5 on April 28, 2014

We stayed here the night before a cruise and it was amazing!!! Situated between The Strand and the beach for easy access to both. Maria was an awesome hostess and the breakfast was perfect! Cruise parking was also included to add to the value of this stay. We'll be back next year.

Caring, friendly and professional hosts made a great stay!

4.6 on April 17, 2014

We stayed in the Lost Bayou Guest House for one night preceeding and one night after our cruise. Dave and Maria are consummate hosts. They think of things you need before you need them. The common area/refreshment centre/snack centre was lovely and equipped with all sorts of tea, juice, coffee, bottled water and snacks. They are located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of the old Historic District and a 5 minute taxi ride to the Pier. They provided great suggestions for dining and were a wealth of information about the history of Galveston. Our room was well appointed and the window air conditioner kept us cool. I would highly recommend you stay in this lovely home. Thanks again, Dave and Maria
