À propos de ce logement

1915 bungalow located 1 1/2 off the Seawall on a quiet, neighborly, one way street. The home is remodeled to keep its character intact with creative compliments. Th back yard is private and relaxing . The spa is icing on the cake. The location is front and center giving easy access to the beach and with easy access to every thing in town. Many restaurant’s and comfortable lounges are within a few blocks. Guests would describe it as a sanctuary, great location, private , unique and relaxing.

Le logement

I would define the “space” as the attempt not to give you what a motel or average vacation rental attempts to portray. The house has a feeling of openness with the character of its original owner in 1915. The back yard at first glance looks like the perfect spot to have nothing to do , yet you find over time it is busy with Butterflies, doves and a little white rabbit every once in a while. It lacks a connection of where you stayed before on a vacation. It probably will connect to somewhere you have visited before with good memories.

Accès des voyageurs

The location is the best in town for access. Being a bit off the seawall gives you more privacy. It has a driveway for off street parking.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I am semi retired. A lot of guests compliment Galveston for being personal and friendly . I cannot always do it but I do try to do something to compliment your visit. I am careful if you want privacy to make sure you have it. I am also willing to be your tour guide. Do not be shy to ask me anything.

Autres remarques

Guests consistently say , quiet, homey, unique, handy and personal. I have managed to landscape it in a way which draws an amazing amount of Butterflies in the backyard. Kicking back in a chair or relaxing in the spa gives the same sanctuary feeling the butterflies are drawn too. Our Galveston famous Cinderella Rabbit passed away last year. His wife and son have a habit of getting out and visiting the neighborhood so they are not always there. It’s the kind of neighborhood where the neighbors will let you know the bunnys are hanging in their back yard.
The garden is everyone’s favorite. Relaxing in the spa with butterfles and occasionally our rabbit playing in the garden is unique. The home is under decorated but you will keep noticing little details of its life and touches I have added. It is not a house you get to know in a day.
A lot of little things can add up to everything. It’s not about making a place for you to stay but more about making it a place with memories to take back home. I feel I have guests who bring up where they stayed as much as what they did.

We really enjoyed staying here. The backyard was absolutely amazing. The boys (9 and 3 years old) especially loved it. It was walking distance to the beach, and Calvin and Blue provided an adorable little wagon that was lovely for toting beach chairs and tools with. Restaurants were close, and the house was only about 8-9 minute drive from "The Strand". We really enjoyed our stay and all the extras that came with the benefit of staying here! Thank you for having us!

Calvin has made a wonderful location available for those interested in travelling to Galveston. The house was on a less traveled one way road that was still very centrally located to the Seawall area. The house itself is lovely, with a backyard to die for. Driving around town from this home is very simple, as is walking. Calvin was a fantastic host, eager and willing to be of assistance in making plans or just enjoying ourselves at his home. Would stay here again without question.

We loved staying at the Old Silk Hat in Galveston. The place is very comfortable with a lovely garden and wonderful hot tub. We'd definitely stay there again. The host was wonderful at responding to concerns. The place is a little bit steampunk victorian which my family and I loved (although I needed an instruction manual to use the shower ;).

The Old Silk Hat is a lovely little cottage in a quiet residential area of Galveston. It's very close to the beach and several great seafood spots, and a short drive to the Strand. Calvin was a gracious and kind host.

A very unique place with amazing butterflies and bunnies in the garden. So close to the beach and sea wall, but at the same time very quiet and secluded, no noise gets through. Calvin is a great host as well, our family loved his place.

We enjoyed our stay @ The Silk Hat. Calvin is a very nice guy and great host.

•I am originally from Illinois. Been in Galveston 30 years. I was well known for my restoration carpentry and photography of Galveston . I now have a 7 year old daughter and 3 year old rabbit. We do what we call family life art. We take Cinderella Bunny out almost every weekend on our art wagon . Cinderella is highly trained to stay on the wagon and be children friendly. We have done this so much that if you ask us about bunny then you are not from Galveston. I have never seen anything give so much joy and be so healthy for the family . My daughter and I try to host the Old Silk Hat in the same way . We will go out of our way for you to enjoy your experience.
