Description
This cozy, upscale, newly renovated late 19th century charmer is generous on character details and long on style. You?re a short walk from the Seawall and beach or a short bike ride from the east side and the Strand. Or just stay in and enjoy an indulgently comfortable king-size bed, and 2 new, larger screen TVs. Sleeps 2 (twin-size trundle available for 1 more person).

ABOUT THE COTTAGE

The interior of this cottage is straight out of a magazine; built in 1890 on stilts, the house was originally a ?carriage house?, and a survivor of the ?Big Hurricane.? There is an open feel throughout, and the layout allows guests to open or close the glass doors between the bedroom and lounge/living area.

An eat-in kitchen has a granite-topped island for 4; the kitchen also features antique, stained glass windows over the front door, and two antique windows facing the street. The renovated kitchen boasts a large, farmhouse-style sink, set into wooden cabinetry, and modern appliances.

In the living room, enjoy a separate TV area on the plush, Crate & Barrel sofa over which hangs a 47? Vizio flat-screen TV with a Roku stick, or move the two sofa tables and install the trundle bed and close the doors for a second separate lounge/bedding area.

Glass doors with internal blinds separate the living/lounge area from the enclosed bedroom and though there is one bath, there are two entry portals via the bedroom and/or the open living area. The spa-like, natural bathroom has a granite dual vanity and the backsplash and tub/shower surround are river stone mosaic tile which gives the area a rustic, natural, tumbled rock feel.

THE LOCATION

Conveniently located mid-island, the home is within an easy 8-minute walk to the sand and Seawall. Browse the shell shops, enjoy the Pleasure Pier, dine on freshly caught seafood, chase the crabs, feed the birds, or just watch the waves lap the shore. Across Broadway to the north, the quaint Strand area has original brick streets and gas-lit lamps, and offers romantic horse-drawn carriage rides with an up-close look at the former ?Wall Street of the South.? Stroll through the many art galleries, museums, and antique shops, and dine at the unique caf├ęs and restaurants.

In the evening, walk east to the water and watch the massive freighters passing so close they appear to be floats in a parade, dine in the bars or restaurants perched over the surf, or visit fresh seafood markets at Pier 19 where the day?s catch is unloaded.

If you are an early riser, head over to Mod?s Coffee House and indulge in their handmade banana or zucchini bread and top if off with a Root Beer float at the oldest pharmacy in Texas, The Star Drug Store. Rent a golf cart and tour the lovely East End Historical District or spend a morning at the Rosenberg Library (the oldest library in Texas). Palm-lined Broadway is home to many examples of turn-of ?the-century mansions (available for touring) and churches, and lovely Kempner Park is nearby the home (a 4-minute walk). If you are in the mood for a quiet, simple meal, stroll four minutes to DiBella for a sumptuous Italian meal.

Galveston is truly a sportsman?s paradise. Book a fishing trip or just cast off from the Pier. Take a cruise, kayak the water mazes near 61st Street, wakeboard at Offatts Bayou, paddle board, golf, bird watch, or take in the Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Galveston has something for everyone.

Absolutely Adorable!!!
A guest from Crowley, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2017
This was a girls getaway for me and my daughter. I let her pick from several places on the VRBO site (Most were much more expensive and right across from the beach) but she chose this one & that was fine with me because I thought it was so cute. We were both super excited to see if it looked like the pictures and it did! From the moment we drove up to the outside we knew we were going to love it and then as we went through the house we fell more in love and knew we had picked the right place to stay. There was so much thought and detail in every single thing and we truly felt like we were in a little cottage- Everything was fresh and very clean! They also provided coffee/tea/sugar/creamer and a few little snacks for us, which was super nice. I loved the little remote fireplace and would turn it on without the heat and enjoy my coffee beside it on the huge comfy couch in the morning or a glass of wine at night. If I had (1) complaint it would be that we stayed for 4 nights and they only provided (1) bath towel & (1) wash cloth for each of us. It would have been a little nice to have at least another set for each. Other than that EVERYTHING was perfect! We did meet (1) set of neighbors and they were super nice which made us feel even better about the place. It was in a great location... just a few blocks from the beach, restaurants and lots of other fun stuff were close by. If I ever go back to Galveston, I will try to plan my dates to stay here again.

Super Cute!
Teresa B. from Amarillo, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2017
Overall, we loved this rental and it's location. The house is decorated really cute, and has more things provided than we expected - like umbrellas, beach chairs and toys, cooking and cleaning utensils. The home is located just a few blocks from the beach and is an easy walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants along Seawall Blvd.We did have trouble connecting to the secure Wi-Fi. There was an unsecure connection that we could connect to fine, but never could connect to the secure one even with the instructions. The Roku works but unless you already have accounts, it doesn't do you much good. We have Netflix, but when it came time to leave, we couldn't remove our account information without resetting the whole thing. We also couldn't get the tablet to work. It wouldn't charge.Two packages were delivered from Amazon, and we weren't sure what to do with them so they were left by the door when we left. This is a cute and comfortable home and we would definitely stay here again on future trips to Galveston. This was our second time using a VRBO and it was different having the property managed by a company versus the personal touch of dealing directly with the owner.
