This is a large and well appointed room at the top of a historic mansion house. The house in itself is worth a visit and is nearby to The Strand, harbour and beaches. Brian was an excellent host and provided us with recommendations, including breakfast and local nightlife, and also cold beers on arrival which were welcome after a long drive!

This guy is an amazing host! His place is extremely beautiful and extremely clean and well-kept. This guy knows the right info we needed, and then disappeared, yet stayed available!

This is our second time staying with Brian. He is a fantastic host. He brought us extra towels, barbies for my girls and made his home feel like ours. When we go back to Galveston, we will stay here.

Elegant Manor! Great location, walking distance to great shopping and eats. Brian was an excellent host, directing us to wonderful restaurants and desirable sights. Made us feel right at home. Super experience, informational, historical, romantic, it was our 44th wedding anniversary. Brian met us with surprise cake, delicious! Looking forward to staying again, would love to bring our sons and their families for an entire family getaway. Loved it!

Brian was so accommodating to my husband, one year old daughter and I. The room was clean, beautiful and comfortable. The rich history of the building makes this stay so incredibly unique.

Response from Brian:
We are sorry to see you were not completely satisfied with the location and also you indicated you were not happy with the value at $69 per night. We will continue to make efforts to improve value, but you got a room at an off season $69 a night rate that was a 1000 sq ft master bedroom with giant bathroom inside one of the islands most notable mansions. The size and scale in these mansions with 14 foot ceiling do create large staircases so we are always looking at ways to improve accessibility. I am not sure how we can create a better value for you. You were not completely satisfied with the location which is puzzling to us because all guests love this area being 2 or 3 block to all downtown entertainment and fine dining plus harbor side bars, plus 3 blocks to some of the best breakfast and lunch spots on 14th st the Sun flower Cafe, Mexican cafe and Mosquito cafe. In addition we are 3 blocks to all of the fun spots in the arts and Entertainment district including the Grand Opera house and many pier side attractions. We have a high security gated compound on a quiet street surround by tropical vegetation. As you were heavy smokers and this is a non-smoking property perhaps you would be best suited to another facility as you left behind incense sticks to cover odours and a very smoky smelling bathroom which our cleaning staff noted and found left behind.
