First time at a B&B

4.8 on September 28, 2014

My wife and I chose to go to a B&B for the weekend. I had never been to one, so really did not know what to expect. After arriving at the Villa, I was pleasantly surprised. Linda greeted us with a bright smile and a hug, very much what a southern greeting is supposed to be. The room we had was very nice with a jacuzzi tub. The antiques were an extremely nice touch, as the Villa is celebrating 100 years. As I stated, I had never been to a B&B before this weekend, so I cannot really compare prices. However, the wonderful breakfast, attention to detail (as well as our ever need) and the overall hospitality of the owner, makes the Villa an outstanding value for the money. Linda was very accommodating and a terrific hostess. My wife and I have already decided we will be back. The personal attention one gets at this B&B is like nothing you will ever receive from a hotel. I would not only rate my stay as very high, but would highly recommend the Villa to everyone!

Linda made my 4 day stay at the B&B a peaceful and serene getaway while visiting relatives. My room was beautiful and the entire B&B is decorated with gorgeous antiques. Linda's breakfasts were outstanding. Her salute to the troops at breakfast was very moving and memorable. Thank you for such a wonderful experience on my vacation. I will be back the next time I am in Galveston.


Very Nice

The Provence Room

Linda is the best hostess! My husband and I stayed for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and felt completely at home. Started off with a big warm welcome and it just got better from there. We are going back in December to celebrate our wedding anniversary and are looking forward to it! We highly recommend to all people looking to relax, have a good weekend, and a lovely home cooked breakfast each morning. See you soon Linda!


The Perfect Weekend

4.6 on June 23, 2014

My wife booked the Villa for our 7th wedding anniversary and it was fabulous. The owner, Linda really knows her craft. Without a doubt, she made the experience very special for us. We had heard that the breakfasts were good and we were not disappointed, certainly much nicer than anything I do for myself. I loved the antiques that she had throughout the house and she was gracious enough to take the time to run done some of the history on them with us. She clearly cares for each and every guest and we will certainly keep her number handy for our next visit.


Too long, too heavy, but a great place

4.0 on June 16, 2014

Linda is a wonderful hostess. The rooms are great. We stayed in the Provence Room. Wish we could have had a shower, but the Jaccuzzi tub was great. The most comfortable bed ever!! Wish we could have had more choices for breakfast. They were very heavy - esp 5 days in a row. Love you Linda & Taz! Recommend 2 nights in a row at most!


The Provence Room

4.4 on April 25, 2014

We enjoyed staying at The Villa for our 7th anniversary. The house was interesting with many antiques. Linda, the innkeeper, cooks a yummy three course breakfast and has had a very interesting life. She also has the cutest little dog who greets you every evening upon returning. The jacuzzi in our room was nice and we didn't mind there not being a stand-alone shower. The room was bright and open and you could hear birds chirping first thing in the morning. The location of the B&B was very central and perfect for going to the strand or Pleasure Pear and the beach.


Great location - Historic house

3.8 on March 27, 2014

Enjoyed the eclectic decorations and antiques. Linda is a very welcoming and helpful host. She made suggestions that enhanced our enjoyment of Galveston and area. Good location between the sea wall area and the historic downtown.


The Best Little B&B in Texas

5 on December 31, 2013

Your trip to beautiful Galvaston will not be complete without a stay at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. I surprised my wife on late friday afternoon with a heartfelt "Pack your bags sweety… we're leaving for the weekend." Half the way there, I told her we were staying at this great B&B in Galvaston. Never having stayed at a B&B before, I was a little worried she would be disappointed. However, our host "Aunt Linda" welcomed us like a very dear, old friends and from there, the kindness and hospitality never stopped. Beautifully detailed with everything you come to a B&B for, you will truly love this one. I assure you, that, you will tell your friends and start making plans to return once you meet Linda and stay in her magnificent,120 year old pink home. When you arrive, tell Linda that Neal & Clara (Georgetown, TX) say hi!
