“Our 2nd visit here was better than the first!!!”
Reviewed June 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was our 2nd stay at Pelican Perch. As expected, the place was immaculate when we arrived. The owners have also added a full laundry room on the first floor, and it is very well appointed. Another cool aspect is that there are assorted condiments already on hand from prior guests, but it is all fresh!! We are making this an annual destination for our deep see fishing trips in the Gulf.

“Pelican Perch exceeded all expectations. What a fantastic stay in Galveston!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We agree with all prior reviews!! Shelene was the consummate professional in handling our booking and is extremely responsive to all our inquiries prior to our trip. The property is maintained immaculately, and all my family members were very pleased with it (even the picky ones!!!). Note that it is on the 2nd floor. Shelene - many thanks from all of us :-). We will DEFINITELY be back!!!

“Lovely Property”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Pelican Perch is beautifully decorated, the beds are very comfortable, it was very clean and in a very good position for the Seawall. Pier 21 and the ferry to Bolivar Peninsula. Very well equipped - even beach towels are provided!

The only thing I would comment on is the bathtub - it was stained and there was no plug, making it awkward to bath my Granddaughter after a day on the beach!

We were a party of 3 adults, 1 child and a baby; there was plenty of space and could easily accommodate an extra adult.

Thank you for the nice review and for leaving the house so neat and orderly! We have added a plug for the bathtub, which is an original tub, along with the wooden floors and doors, so yes they have a bit of wear!! We look forward to hosting your next trip to Galveston.

“It Was Awesome!”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

When I go on vacation, I want to feel like I am away, but I want the comfort of my bed. And Pelican Perch was just that!

Pelican Perch was more than we could ask for. Just a few blocks from the beach, easy parking, safe neighborhood, and SO CLEAN!

4 of us stayed in the home (including a baby) and we had no issues. There was still plenty of room if others would have joined us.

Seriously, pelican perch is awesome. If it's available, GET IT!
