This villa is your perfect bungalow only steps from the Gulf waters, beach store shopping, restaurants, bars and still close to everything like; the Strand historical district, the Pleasure Pier, and Moody Gardens. If this house is booked, we have another Island home we can rent to you that may be available.
The house is decorated in a tropical theme with vibrant colors and never lets you forget how close you are to the beach. The back yard is filled with tropical plants and palms and a large 8 foot picnic table if you would like to eat outside during your stay. Use the grill on the small back deck for a cook-out or just enjoy the sea b...reezes from the front porch. Whatever you decide to do Blue Crab bungalow will make for an amazing stay on Galveston Island!
This house is close to 3 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) Sunflower Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also just over 1 block to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood!
I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!
There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (3 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located just out from the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental. But if you don't want to rents them, we provide 8 bag chairs at the Blue Crab bungalow, that you can bring to the beach or use for whatever you would like during your stay.
Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Also entertainment is always just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)
We have another house on the island and will always be close if you have any question or issues during your stay. Feel free to contact us at any time! We look forward to sharing this amazing home with you and your friends and family!Read more

We drove from Dallas to meet our family from San antonio for a weekend in Galveston. We were very impressed with the little house. Location was less than a block to our favorite steak house and the beech! We loved grilling in the back yard and playing Cornhole. (we bought the game) The house has everything from blender to toaster. The guys really enjoyed the nice Beer glasses. Not walking distances the strand, but quick

We had a lovely time in the cute Blue Crab Bungalow. The owners were accommodating and answered all of our questions. Even sent back a sweater that I forgot to pack!

Our New annual Vacation Destination!
Left on 11/01/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | Crissy
We had an amazing weekend in Galveston. We were 3 couples traveling together, with one small dog, and had an awesome time enjoying the Texas beaches. The bungalow was so close to the ocean and we used the beach bag chairs provided and just walked 1 block to get there. It was almost like having our own private beach. We expected large crowds, but I guess this may be the off-season for Galveston. The weather was amazing and in the 80s which is so very warm for us this time of year. We love coming down South in the Fall since it is still "Summer" temperatures! Perfect beach weather! We got a wonderful deal on the bungalow. It was less than a hotel and we had so much room and the atmosphere was more than pleasant. What a great value...we found a gem! Plus the owners just finished outside renovations complete with new fencing, front and back decking, as well as a brand new paint job. They said they have owned it for over a year, but we were the first to stay here after its exterior face-lift completion! The house is so bright and gives off and amazing coastal feel! We always felt like we were on a tropical island! There were palm trees in the front and back yard and a new 4 burner grill in the back complete with a picnic table we ate many meals at. It also had a perfect sized back yard for akira, our dog, to play! We plan to make this an annual vacation and will be back very soon for a longer stay next time!
Best family vacation ever!
Left on 11/01/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | Adam
All I can say about this vacation home is "wow", It is so cozy, clean, and convenient. Close to the beach, shops, and restaurants, but far enough from the action that it is quiet and peaceful at night. The home has everything you need and more. I will never be able to stay in a hotel on a vacation again. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, huge kitchen with everything you need to cook, and a full size washer and dryer. There is no other feeling like getting home from a vacation and all of your laundry is clean! We will definetly be back several times. Highly recommend this property. My only advice would be to bring your own TP. Home is stocked with single ply : )
Great stay in Galveston
Left on 10/22/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | Matthew
This was my family and another family's first trip together to Galveston not staying in a hotel and it was amazing! I was a little weary of staying somewhere other than a hotel but this was the best experience! It was my first time in a vacation home and I have zero complaints. The home was beautifully decorated, super close to the beach, and had a grill and picnic table in the back. It looked just like the pictures. We had no issues communicating with the property owner and check-in was easy and smooth process. I would recommend Blue Crab Bungalow to anyone! The next time we are in town we will be staying here!

Deep Sea Fishing Trip
Left on 10/16/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Chris
Everything about our stay in the bungalow was fantastic! The bungalow itself was clean and comfortable. There were 8 of us, so we used all 3 beds and the sofa-bed, and all were nice and comfortable. There were plenty of extra pillows and blankets, toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags and soap, and the kitchen was fully stocked (we were able to cook some freshly caught fish for dinner one night).
The bungalow owner was extremely nice and helpful. She gave us all of the necessary information before check-in (in addition to a few useful tips) Additionally, we accidentally left something (of sentimental value) in the bungalow when we left, and she mailed it to us the next day! Everything far exceeded our expectations, and I can't wait to return to this bungalow on another trip to Galveston!
The Blue Crab is a Comfortable Vacation Home
Left on 10/11/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | Barbara
Our group of two grandparents, two parents and a baby really enjoyed the comfortable environment of this vacation rental. Considering its size, amenities and good location for Galveston events and dining, it is a very good value and so handy for the light cooking and snacking we do on vacation. The cheery colors and casual island art used throughout the bungalow immediately put us Midwesterners in a vacation mood. Communication with the owner, Jeanna, was always timely and friendly. We enjoyed deep sea fishing, swimming in the gulf and bay, and going to Moody Gardens aquarium, the oil rig museum and airplane museum. Our architecture/history buffs loved the Bishop's Palace tour, Sacred Heart Church, and walking the East End Historical District, but are so glad we saw the natural beauty of the West End of the island, as well. Our favorite restaurants were Mosquito Cafe, The Sunflower Bakery (brunch), Jimmy's on the Pier (sea view), and Benno's (sea view and seafood). We also enjoyed the muffaletta sandwich at Maceo Spice and ice cream from LaKing's Confectionery on The Strand.

An October cool front provided us the perfect weather for a quick getaway to Galveston. This house was a great spot for us. You can hear the beach from the front deck and seawall is only a short walk away. House has everything you need, is clean and well kept. We will keep this place in mind for the future!

Great location, I enjoyed walking up to Seawall in the morning. Good house for a family getaway, everyone liked being close to the beach. The house was clean, comfortable and looked exactly like the pictures online. Owners gave us great suggestions on a few places to eat.

Beautiful bungalow! The time of year is amazing with quiet beaches and had it to ourselves on Fri morning. We felt like we were right in the middle of all the Island's attractions. We were so close to the Strand and Pleasure Peir and it is the perfect location and a convenient 1 min walk to the beach. It was nice to have a grill and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. The Owner is very accommodating and it looks like they are doing upgrades and have a new back deck and supplies to replace the front deck too! I definitely would stay here again and can't wait to go back to Galveston

Best beach bungalow
Left on 09/26/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Winter escapee
I traveled to Galveston in april with my mother and sister. This beautiful house had everything we needed for our week vacation. It is located within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and just a short drive for shopping. Even in the one day it rained, we sat on the porch and watched the thunder and lightning over the bay. Would definitely stay there again.
Left on 09/24/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Zachary
Really enjoyed the Blue Crab Bungalow, the interior was clean, new, and had almost every amenity we needed while we were on vacation. Great place if you're looking to do a lot of cooking. Lots of beds for lots of guests. But what I would consider the best thing about our stay was that the location was just a short walk away from what many consider the best stretch of beach in Galveston; we never had to drive to the beach. Fantastic experiecnce, thanks for all the help as well. Read more
Hi Zack, I'm glad you enjoyed all the amenities and had plenty of bedding and room. I have to agree with you that the stretch of beach there by the house is my favorite in Galveston as well. That is one of the many things that drew us to this property! Glad we could share the best beaches of Galveston with you and your group! Come back anytime!
Left on 09/24/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Darleen
This little house brought back some wonderful childhood memories for me. Trips like this will help to create them for my kids as well. The Blue Crab is right around the corner from my grandmother's old house. The stories I could tell my kids about walking to the beach from "nana's" house all came back to life over this beautiful week in Galveston. The home is so inviting, charming and relaxed. There is ample room for the kids. There is plenty of space to hang out those beach towels and swimsuits to dry. It is comfortably close to the important stuff...(Strand and the beach) and comfortably distant from the buzz of the San Luis and all the tourist traps further West on the Seawall. We did not want to leave. I think that comment alone just makes the case for what a fun and relaxing time we had at this wonderful house. Plus it is so well stocked with all the necessities. The kitchen is Fully stocked kitchen with a crock-pot even! We could have brought groceries and never even had to eat out for the entire week! The bathrooms and kitchen are modern and have no issues with what one would expect from an obviously older home in Galveston. Extremely clean and well-kept. A lot of work has been done to the Blue Crab and it was well worth it! The owner was in contact with us immediately upon our arrival to ensure everything was satisfactory. I would recommend this little gem to anyone with an active family who love to be near the beach. The photos are extremely accurate and do a great job of capturing the feel of the home. I just can't say enough good things about the Blue Crab! We will certainly be back. Thanks again for a great place to call our "beach home" for a week! _JMH Temple, TX Read more
Thank you for your amazing review. We worked very hard to make the bungalow an unforgettable vacation home! A lot of time and thought went into making the Blue Crab the perfect home away from home. We first bought the house because of the amazing location and then remodeled, decorated, and stocked the house with everything you could want. I'm so glad you noticed the attention to detail and enjoyed everything about your stay. We look forward to hosting your stay on the Island again and again in the future.

We had a great time at this property. House is within walking distance to the beach, comfortably slept five adults, and was very clean. We used the grill for a meal and noticed it needs a good cleaning, it flared up on me quite a bit! Read more
I'm glad you had a nice stay John. Thank you for letting me know that the grill needed attention. We have been to the bungalow and properly cleaned the grill. It get's quite a work-out over the Summer and we plan to replace it at the end of the season and have another one ready for next Summer. We always are looking for ways to improve the the property and experience for our guests. So glad you had a wonderful time and we would love to host your Island stays in the future!

We had a great time! Just wish the weather had been warmer. Kitchen had everything I needed to cook dinner and breakfast plus spices and oil so I didn't have to bring that. I thought I would have to venture out for a cup of coffee but there was filters, coffee and sugar... What a nice surprise. Great location! Close to Stewart Beach and Pleasure Pier. Very comfortable den area with DVD player for watching movies. Plenty of towels for cleaning up after being at the beach. It was a quick getaway but worth it! Read more
Thanks Gloria. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to have a nice cup of coffee right there first thing in the morning....I know how important that can be, even on vacation! Hope to have you back again soon when the weather is better. I hate that it wasn't nicer for you, but I'm glad you were able to watch some DVDs and enjoy your time in the Bungalow since the rain and cold didn't let you play outside as much as you had hoped. We look forward to hosting your stay again soon!

We had a great time staying at the Blue Crab Bungalow! The weather wasn't what we had hoped for over Spring Break, but we still had a blast! We had three couples in our group and there was plenty of room for all of us. Jeanna was a very gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed and then some. She was easy to talk to and had some great ideas for things to do while we were there. The house was clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. It was also so close to the Seawall and the Strand, which was incredibly convenient. We would definitely come back! Read more
Thanks Tommy, I'm sorry the weather wasn't better. I know for Spring Break it should be sunny and warm! Glad you and your group still had an enjoyable stay though. We'd love to have you back when the weather warms up!

My husband and I wanted to have a special weekend in Galveston to celebrate Vday and we picked the perfect place! This was an amazing house and so close to the beach! The weather was great this weekend and a bit breezy on Sunday, but we could hear the big waves from the porch. We also used the kitchen to make our breakfast and there was everything we needed including a very nice coffee maker! It was the best Vday weekend ever, couldn't ask for anything more! The owner is very accommodating, we definitely would stay here again. Read more
Glad we could make your V-Day weekend special Dianna! What a romantic idea your husband had for the two of you! Glad you enjoyed the coffee maker and the complimentary coffee! Hope to have you back in the future!
Mardi Gras in Galveston

Jeanna was such a pleasure to work with! She was quick to respond with any questions, gave me a great deal on the pricing, and was more than accommodating for me and my friends. The place had everything (and I stress everything) we needed and was incredibly comfortable and clean. We had 8 people stay for two nights and not once did we feel the place was lacking in elbow room. Everything we needed was within walking distance which was great and convenient! I would be happy to stay at the Blue Grab Bungalow again in the future and will recommend this place for anyone else interested as well! Read more
Thanks for your review Steve and we hope to have you and your group back again next year for Mardi Gras!

Wonderful host and owner, new owners are really trying to get this rental off the ground and running. They were willing to work with us to make a deal on a weekend stay since it was January. Kitchen and house was stocked with everything that we needed. Jeanna and Troy offered excellent advice about the island. The 70 degree weather was perfect for sitting on the beach relaxing! Read more
Thank you for the kind words Bobby. I'm glad you had such a great stay and we were able to get you the good rates for your off-season stay at Blue Crab Bungalow. It was great weather for Jan and I even saw people swimming at the beach this weekend...how crazy! We hope to have you back in the near future and thanks for referring us to your cousin and his family for their next stay on the Island. We have them tentatively scheduled in May at this point. Thanks again!

Had a blast...At blue crab!!
Left on 09/13/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Wanda
The Blue Crab Bungalow was awesome!!! We could walk to the beach and anywhere on the seawall. The house is equipped with everything you need from chairs for the beach, to every kitchen gadget you could think, and a washer and dryer which was very helpful when we returned from the beach. The bungalow is decorated very cute and makes you feel at home. We stayed during the 4th of July weekend and had a blast!!! The backyard is very comfortable and we grilled every day. I recommend this property very highly and working with the homeowner was a wonderful experience. Trust me I will return to the blue crab again!!! Read more
It's so great that yall had such a blast at the Blue Crab Bungalow! We try very hard to make the home have everything you could need or want. I love to cook, and I assume vacationers are staying in a house instead of a hotel, because they want to use the kitchen, so I make sure anything you would need to cook and eat at the house is provided. I'm also excited you appreciated all the beachy and tropical decorations. I know it was a great location for the 4th of July fireworks display on Seawall as well! You were right there in the middle of the show and had a great view from that side of Seawall! Thank you for the compliment and I thoroughly enjoyed working and communicating with you before your stay and I'm so excited that we could provide the setting for an amazing family vacation!
Left on 09/13/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Charles
Listing description very accurate. Property was very clean and maintained. The owners were very helpful, contacted us a couple times before to give us the necessary info, and helped guide us in when we forgot the directions at home. This is not a resort experience, it's a beach house. A few blocks to the sea wall and several restaurants. Easy drive to the Strand. I would recommend this property. Read more
So glad you enjoyed your vacation!I'm happy you found the house to be exactly as described. We work hard to portray it accurately and the guest reviews also give a chance for others to describe the house as well. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We also believe communication is important and we always happy to give directions or answer any questions before or during your stay! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the restaurants w/i walking distance. One of the best Seafood restaurants on Seawall is just 2 blocks from the house with an amazing patio dinning! Hope to have you back soon!

There were 8 of us in this house. 17,18,20 and 23 plus four adults. We had a great time. The house was perfect. No complaints there. Plenty of room for everyone and everything was well stocked. Front porch was great to hang out and visit. Read more
I'm so glad you loved the house and it was just what you hoped for. Glad there was plenty of room for 8 people. We can sleep 8 with the sofa bed, but don't really encourage it normally except for kids. I love the front porch too and you can hear the waves from there when you hang out! I'm sorry that the Galveston Beaches were too restrictive for your group. There is, unfortunately, no drinking on Seawall... but at Stewart Beach (a ways to the East, but still walking distance from the house) you are welcome to drink. I guess there are quite a few other rules there though. It seems like everywhere is becoming more and more regulated now. I'm happy that you had freedom at the house though, and were able to still enjoy yourselves and have a great vacation! Hope to have you again!

We were so close to the beach...just a block away...so no car was needed. The owners answered any questions that we had about the area and were super friendly. My family was comfortable and felt completely safe in the neighborhood. I would recommend the Blue Crab Bungalow to anyone wishing to stay on the Island...it proved to be the perfect vacation spot. I plan on re-booking again. Read more
Dr. Boyd we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! I know you traveled a long way to visit your family and I'm glad you all decided to stay at the Blue Crab Bungalow for your Summer vacation. We try hard to provide all the amenities that would make for an amazing stay, and it's nice to know you appreciate and used all of them! It is amazing to be so close to the beach and not need a car I agree. We hope to have you back again in the future the next time you plan a trip to Galveston!
The Best Vacation Ever!!!
Left on 09/10/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Reinita
I can't say enough about our stay at the Blue Crab. The house was a "home" for our 4 days there. We were one block off the Seawall and we were within walking distance to so many spots. We were 5 minutes driving to the Strand. We walked the Seawall every day and when returning to the Blue Crab (that had plenty of space for the 5 people that were there), we had 2 full bathrooms so we could all get cleaned up and ready to go out to eat and enjoy some great restaurants and bars. When I returned home, I put my suitcase down and looked around my house and picked up my bag and headed for the door. My daughters asked me what I was doing...I said, "I am going back to the Blue Crab". They got a laugh at that...I was serious!!! But, I will have to wait awhile to return to the cutest and cleanest house on Galveston Island. Thank you Jeanna and Troy! Read more
Reinita, you have such kind words about our place and it makes us so happy to know when people have an amazing vacation. We are so glad we could help make your family vacation wonderful! We look forward to your return soon! Remember to call us early next year though since the Summer dates fill up so quick. Enjoy the rest of our Summer and Blue Crab bungalow will be waiting for your return!

We were very pleased with the property. It is perfect size for 8 people. Lots of sitting room and great sized kitchen. Very clean property. Location is close to the beach and we were able to walk with 5 little ones. Close to Murdoch's & Pleasure Pier. The property has everything you need to cook, relax and feel comfortable. The beach chairs are a plus as well as the outside water hose to rinse off your feet. Be sure to visit The Strand on your stay and enjoy a bit of the history of Galveston. The kids loved the carriage ride and yummy ice cream shop. We enjoyed our weekend and will stay again when we visit Galveston. Read more

We greatly enjoyed our time at the Blue Crab Bungalow! The beaches and seawall are just a minutes drive away. The house was just as it was pictured and had all the comforts of home. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We have three young children and it was so nice to have a place to stay that allowed us to keep the routine of home. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing beach vacation! We enjoyed eating at some of the resterants off the main seawall. The Sunflower Cafe was our favorite and it was only minutes away. Thanks for a wonderful time!!

Our weekend at the Blue Crab Bungalow was great. The location was perfect as was the house. I wasn't sure if the house would be spacious enough but it was just right for my son, wife, and two puppies and my daughter, husband, and 3 grandchildren. The grandkids loved the sea animal decorations. The 6 year old was thrilled to boozy board with his cousin. The beach was a short walk away so we were able to enjoy the cool breeze from the gulf even though it was a hot day. Other family members were able to join us at the beach. My son and his wife loved being able to walk to the nearby restaurants and Pleasure Pier. They have spent time at other beach houses, but liked the Blue Crab Bungalow best. My husband and I were thrilled to have time with the grandkids playing in their small pool in the back yard. The puppies also loved the yard. The house offered all the needed accommodations. It was great staying at the house instead of a hotel. We had great communication with the owners. I was in communication with them from the time i was thinking about booking the house. They provided detailed instructions for the check in, while we were there and, the check out. It was a great bonding weekend thanks to the owners of the Blue Crab Bungalow.
