“It's no wonder Ana is a superhost! She made our trip to Galveston wonderful. Herr home is fantastic, hospitality impeccable and attentiveness to our requests/needs was extremely helpful. We've stayed in Airbnb's around the world, and as a host Ana, without doubt, provided the most attentive help...from the informative website, to the play toys for our pups.
The location is great, nestled in the heart of the historic residential neighborhood, yet a quick bike ride to the beach or the bustling commercial district.
We would highly recommend staying at this well restored historic home.”

“Ana is absolutely wonderful! This is such a beautiful Historic home with charm, comfort and you truly feel at home! The neighborhood is quiet, beautiful and close to everything our family enjoyed. We took a family trip with me, my husband, our 2 children, their spouses and our grandbabies! The grandbabies did not wNt to leave and cried when we left! The space is amazing and the yard is huge! Ana made everything so easy and communicated with us and never hesitated to answer any questions. She even left goodies for the grandbabies! This place and host will not disappoint! Comfort, charm, beauty, warmth and safe, just like we were in our own home! The neighbors were great and friendly and there us everything you need at your fingertips. We cooked, grilled out, relaxed and had the most amazing time here. My family has already asked when we are going back, they loved it so much. Thank you Ana for all you did to make sure this was a memorable trip! You and your home are 1,000% AMAZING!”

The Governor Lubbock Home is a beautiful historic home with lots of charm and space. It was minutes away from the strand and the Seawall. The house has everything you need for a family getaway! Ana was great and very responsive to any questions I had. We would definitely stay there again!

“The Lubbuck house is a charming historical home in the nicest part of Galveston. It is very bright and welcoming. The downstairs living area is very comfortable and has a nice flow. With the two eating areas we were very comfortable when it was just a few of us in the kitchen and the dining room was great when we had a crowd. There are plenty of dishes and utensils for large groups. The fenced-in large yard was great for kids and dogs and outdoor dining. The neighbor is great: a short walk to The Strand; great local restaurants a block away and quiet beaches a short drive (hint: look for Beach Point 1C on East Beach Drive, it's a 6 minute drive).
Our host, Ana, was a dear to work with. She was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We are very happy we stayed at her place, we felt right at home.”
