A divine treat by coast

A quick last minute decision to stay on the island after running into friends. Our host, Linda was welcoming, even calling me by my name as I was walking up to the Villa. Linda gave my fiance and me suggestions for eating out that night and even things to do the next day. Great hospitality and a very comfortable bed and a lovely breakfast. #nomorehotels :)

Beyond what we expected!

Linda is the best host, and makes you feel welcome and right at home! The house was nice, with a family home type atmosphere. The breakfast was out of this world good! We sat and talked with Linda and the other guests for hours, and really enjoyed our stay.

Best B&B in Galveston

I have stayed here several times over the last 6 years. It is like a home away from home. Linda always makes you feel so welcome. The breakfast is always great and filling. She gives great ideas for things to do on the island. I highly recommend this B&B for anyone who wants to get away and just relax. Tammy Duncan

Wonderful B&B

Everything was perfect! Linda is a wonderful hostess. She oriented us to the island, providing ideas of things to see and do. Daily full breakfast was delicious and filling, allowing us to skip lunch.

Love this Place!

We have stayed here twice and both times have been exceptional. Love this place. Will go back annually as the opportunity arises. Linda is a wonderful host. She is genuinely a woman who loves her guests. She is more than a host. She becomes family the more we stay with her.

Relaxing Stay

House was cozy and quite, the innkeeper was wonderful in helping us find places around Galveston. She made a wonderful breakfast with so much great food we skipped lunch both days. Room was quite, well decorated and the perfect size. Everything was great, I can't wait to come back.

Loved this Place. My Sister booked the house for our family stay for my nieces Wedding Weekend in Galveston. Linda greeted us with a Warm Hug and lots of hospitality. She is a Very Sweet lady with a BIG heart! The Rooms are Beautiful, full of antiques and mementoes of her family. The Breakfast was Beautiful and the Presentation just Fantastic. Since my family are all "shower" people, we did have to work out a shower schedule for us to be ready for a 2pm wedding but we made it work and with the Endless Hot Water Heater it wasn't a problem at all. That was the BEST news Yet!!! Linda has lots of suggestions for entertainment but with the limited "freetime" we had this weekend we had to bypass the entertainment. But she does know her Galveston Entertainment Choices., This is A Great Place to stay. We will be back soon. Loved meeting this very Sweet lady and her little dog TAZ.

The Hostess with the Mostest!

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay with Linda at the Villa B&B. From our arrival to this beautiful home to our departure, she made us feel like family. Her homemade 3 course breakfasts are delicious, and she directed us to Galvestons variety of attractions. We will definitely stay at the Villa again. Thanks Linda!
