Tucked away just steps from Galveston's crown jewel, The Grand 1894 Opera House, you'll find The Bungalow at Modern Vintage. More than just lodging, The Bungalow, the creation of Shawna Doskocil, is the perfect extension to her successful Modern Vintage boutique just below.
She's taken the same eclectic mix of old and new styles in furnishings and accessories that made her boutique so popular and let her imagination conjure up a dreamy space one flight up from the bustle on the street below.
Contemporary amenities like granite counters meet nods to old-fashioned hospitality touches that travelers encountered in bygone times. Comfort is never sacrificed to style but instead you'll find the perfect balance of easy elegance that makes simply relaxing a recreation all by itself.
Take the time to re-introduce yourself to the simple pleasure of walking our historic downtown district. Our location couldn't be better for strolling bricked streets and sidewalks while enjoying downtown's classic architecture dating back to Galveston's Golden Age. The Bungalow at Modern Vintage is just a few minutes from Galveston's east beaches, the Pleasure Pier amusement area and some fabulous Gulf seafood restaurants. And don't forget our East End Victorian homes. They're some of the finest examples in the US and are just a few minutes away for you to enjoy.
Feel like staying in the neighborhood? No problem. With world-class cuisine like Rudy & Paco's a few doors away, you won't have to go far to find out just how far from the ordinary The Bungalow at Modern Vintage really is.
While there are many properties to choose from near Galveston's beaches, until now your downtown option was limited to mostly just a few hotel rooms. Shawna wanted to change that, and the idea for The Bungalow was born.
If your idea of an exciting stay in historic downtown Galveston–a seaport with a history that ranges from the grandiose to the ghostly–puts comfort, convenience and one-of-a-kind charm at the top of the list of your "must haves", look no further than the The Bungalow at Modern Vintage!
You have complete access to The Bungalow at Modern Vintage space.

The rates we set INCLUDE A 9% hotel occupancy tax that the City of Galveston levies on short-term lodging. By law we must collect and pay this tax to the City. The state charges a 6% lodging tax which is shown as a separate line item in the charges section of your request before you book.
Due to individual device capabilities and the structure of the building, The Bungalow DOES NOT guarantee its wifi signal availability at any time during a guest's stay. While you may have no issue in accessing our wifi signal, please plan on using your own data access should this be necessary or should availability of Internet access be critical during your stay.
Downtown Galveston, being an historic area, has limited street parking available during weekend nights, when events at venues are taking place and especially during the large public celebrations like Mardi Gras, Lone Star Motorcycle Rally, Dickens on the Strand, etc. Re parking:
Look for street parking in front of Modern Vintage/The Bungalow so you can unload your baggage. If there isn't any available, it is OK to double-park in front of Modern Vintage store to unload and bring your bags up; just put your flashers on and don't leave it long. If you find a nearby space, you'll want to pay the e-parking fee unless you are close to a 6pm arrival. You can park overnight for free in that case, just remember to pay after 9am until 6pm each day except for Sunday to avoid a ticket.
CHECK-IN TIME: 3 P.M.; CHECK-OUT TIME: 12 NOON unless prior arrangements have been made in our correspondence.
The Bungalow at Modern Vintage is a lodging best suited to adults with average mobility. The Bungalow is a No Smoking property; you may smoke just outside the front door. You must be at least 25 years of age to reserve a booking with us and your guests and/or family members staying with you should be at least 10 years old due to the open stairwell design of the apartment and our concern for their safety. We will consider exceptions to this guideline on a case-by-case basis.
Because of the design of this historic building, our second floor lodgings are accessed by an open stairwell that is fairly steep. There is no elevator or wheelchair access to The Bungalow. While an average adult should have no problem, we mention this so you may use your discretion in judging the appropriateness of staying with us based on your own physical condition and the level of convenience expected in handling your baggage. You are responsible for your safety and the safety of any guests during your stay as to the use and enjoyment of The Bungalow's layout and fixtures.
The Bungalow is furnished with pieces specifically chosen by Shawna Doskocil to reflect the grace and eclectic style her Modern Vintage collection enjoys. As such, a number of pieces are one-of-a-kind and difficult to replace. You are responsible for your actions and those of any guest you may have in preserving the appointments in the condition you found them. An inventory is conducted after each guest's stay to verify the condition of the furnishings at The Bungalow. Please come, enjoy your stay with us and treat The Bungalow as you would your home.
The Bungalow is most comfortably enjoyed with up to three adult guests. There is a $25 charge per calendar day for each guest beyond two. Please contact us for any questions you may have regarding a booking of more than three adults.
A modern washer and dryer are provided for your convenience within The Bungalow which you may use for your normal clothing care needs. No dying or other uses of either unit for anything other than customary laundry uses. We assume no responsibility as to the fitness for use of these amenities for your particular purpose.
We have chosen AirBnB's strict refund policy as the most balanced approach for both guests and our business and do enforce the terms of this policy. We suggest using a credit card that has trip cancellation insurance coverage for payment, as many do, to avoid any financial impact if you must cancel.
Because Galveston is a city with a relaxed approach to life, we strive to make your arrival and departure times as convenient to you as possible. Please let us know if you have specific needs as to these issues before you book if they are important. While we must be stricter in this area due to cleaning and make-ready requirements, we will work to make things as stress-free as possible.
