Carriage Haus Rentals
Galveston, TX 77550
Carriage Haus has a beautiful new location on Broadway that looks like a museum inside. Not only that, this is golf cart rental with a twist. These are electric golf carts that are modified to look just like a Ford Model-T, some even have that familiar “Aooga” sound.
From the website:
“In our devoted love for this historic and vibrant city we call Galveston, Carriage Haus Rentals is proud to provide a prototype of the famed 1908 Ford Model-T. This golf cart vehicle truly pays homage to Henry Ford, retaining much of his noble and charming vision.”
“It must have been a real marvel to see hundreds of Model-T’s lined up all along the seawall back in the early 1900’s as their owners enjoyed a wonderful day at the beach.”
“Veronica and Brett Von Blon (owners of Carriage Haus Rentals) hope that driving our electric golf carts around town will bring you back to a much simpler place in time.”
