Description

This newly renovated late-19th-century charmer is generous on character details and style. Take a short walk to the Seawall and beach or a quick bike ride to the east side and the Strand. Or just stay in and enjoy an indulgently comfortable king-size bed. Sink into the new mattress with a 2-inch memory foam topper. Two large screen smart TVs can access your home subscription services and thousands of free shows available through internet apps. 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's 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 four; 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 featuring a plush, Crate & Barrel sofa and a 47” Vizio flat-screen TV with a Roku stick. Or turn this space into a separate lounge/bedding area by removing the two sofa tables and installing the trundle bed. Glass doors with internal blinds separate the living/lounge area from the enclosed bedroom. Though there's one bath, there are two entries: one via the bedroom and another in the open living area. The spa-like, natural bathroom has a granite dual vanity with river stone mosaic tile as the backsplash and tub/shower surround. THE LOCATION Conveniently located mid-island, the home is an easy 8-minute walk to the sand and Seawall. Browse the shops, enjoy Pleasure Pier, dine on freshly caught seafood, 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 of the former “Wall Street of the South. ” Stroll through art galleries, museums, and antique shops, and dine at the unique cafes and restaurants. In the evening, walk east to the water and watch the massive freighters passing, 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're an early riser, head over to Mod’s Coffee House and indulge in their handmade banana or zucchini bread. Top if off with a root beer float at The Star Drug Store, the oldest pharmacy in Texas. 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 a 4-minute walk. Galveston is truly a sportsman’s paradise. Book a fishing trip or just cast off from the Pier. Take a cruise, kayak, wakeboard, paddle board, golf, bird watch, or head to Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Galveston has something for everyone. THE TURNKEY ADVANTAGE Our property is TurnKey Rental Certified. All photos, amenities, calendar, and rates are 100% accurate.
