Check Out The Galveston, Texas Airbnb Mansion That’s Got Everyone Talking
If you like getaways and cool stays, you're going to probably go nuts over this luxurious mansion, built in the 1900s, that is currently listed on Airbnb. Even better, is the fact that it is located on Post Office Street in Galveston, Texas. So, it's not too far away if someone in SWLA is interested in booking it for the weekend.
It's a gorgeous three-story mansion, and it has all the bells and whistles inside and out! The internet has been going bananas over this place ever since, Tim Welch, posted details about his stay at the gorgeous property. Welsh, a retired Traffic Engineer from Katy, Texas was pretty impressed with the place and shared his experience on the public Facebook page, Texas Back Roads
He posted "This is a 1905 house I rented on Galveston Island. It is amazing on the inside as I have posted a few pics in the comments." Below are a couple of the images Welch uploaded featuring beautifully painted murals on the ceilings and a staircase with amazing woodwork. After more than a century, this once single-family home has been beautifully maintained.
Amazing Galveston Mansion on Airbnb
Judging from many of the comments, this incredible property either survived the 1900 Galveston Hurricane or was built shortly afterward. Sadly only a few homes were left standing after the monstruous hurricane decimated everything in its wake. The Great Storm of 1900 claimed the lives of more than 9,000 Galveston residents and thousands more who lived on the mainland. To this day, it is one of the deadliest hurricanes to make landfall in U.S. history.
Be that as it may, the breathtaking mansion is listed on Airbnb, Island Palm Balcony Suite-Grand Manor Mansion and the home itself is now a "boutique hotel," where vacationers can rent a room for roughly $90 per night. Below is a look inside the 120+ plus year-old home and more details about the listing. Enjoy!
