    Shari H recommends this vacation rental

    This house is gorgeous. As a couple who loves historic homes with character and interesting stories, this was the perfect place to surprise my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary. We hosted friends and family and it was amazing. My only complaint is it could definitely use some cleaning. Walls, baseboards, and some curtains were not very clean. Maybe a cleaning service should be hired. With that said, I would definitely have rented the house again knowing what I know. It wasn't a huge deal, but it could be improved upon. My husband said I did a great job, and our guests did not want to leave. It was a wonderful weekend that we will never forget. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It is something different than just another beach house, though it's not far from the beach. We will be back, for sure. Our family would like to make it a yearly thing. :)

    This is the second time our (very big) group has stayed here. We love this place - enough nooks and crannies for people to spread out, but great outdoor and public room space for coming together. The house is old and comes with it's charming quirks. Billie at the House Company is wonderful!

    a guest from Meadows Place, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    My family rented Sealy Hutchings for my entire family to stay at during my sisters wedding weekend in Galveston. This place is amazing and gorgeous! It is so big and very well kept. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. The yard is huge and was perfect for my dogs that were able to stay here. It was perfect for my nieces and nephews as well. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place for a large amount of people and who appreciate the old historical houses in Galveston. .

    Michelle S from Angleton, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    The Sealy Mansion was selected for our 2013 family reunion and provided everything we needed. The location was great for the activities that were planned. It is located in close proximity to the seawall and the yards provided the right atmosphere for our outdoor events. My family was very pleased with the accommodations. I would also like to thank Billie Archuleta with The House Company; she went above and beyond to ensure that my family had a great time. Thanks again, signed a very happy renter.

    Lynnice C from Katy, Tx recommends this vacation rental

    The house was great, one of the keys we were not able to use to the front door, not sure if it was for another door, but there was no guidance as to what the keys opened, but that was not anything to keep me from telling my friends and family how great the place was.

    Judy W from Caldwell, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    It was a beautiful house and perfect for what we had planned, a very intimate small wedding. The house was gorgeous and many room with comfortable beds. The entire experience was wonderful...only exceptions were the nights could be a bit noisy with sirens and also the street lights (very thin light curtains) and the windows leaked air...cold front came thru that night and dropped 30 degrees. The neighborhood is obviously on the edge of a bad one...across street had two men arguing and my son and wife were afraid to go outside after that, at night.
