Galveston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Little house, big history! This charming cottage was built in 1890 and managed to survive the Great Hurricane of 1900 when many in the area did not, and has also survived numerous other powerful storms including Hurricane Ike in 2008. It has under gone a complete renovation and is now ready for your wonderful and relaxing Galveston vacation. Located just 21/2 blocks from the Seawall, Beachy Keen offers a comfy, put your feet up kind of vibe. The colors and decor are what you would expect in a little house by the sea. It has charm to spare but also boasts all the modern conveniences needed for today's travelers. A fully stocked kitchen and in-house washer/dryer offers you the option of a low key vacation with everything you need at your fingertips. However, if action and sightseeing are on your agenda, then you are in the right spot. Many of the islands restaurants and attractions are nearby. Whatever your pleasure, make Beachy Keen Beach Pad your home away from home!

Additional information: All beach equipment provided including chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. Chair hammocks available for relaxing under the deck. A Graco bassinet is provided for infant or toddler sleeping. (Please follow directions and make sure set-up is done correctly before placing child in bassinet.) Property is fully fenced.

About Tony

I live in Houston, TX and have been a flight attendant for 32 years. I inherited an interest in real estate from my father and after taking over his business I have been able to expand into Galveston. Since my desire is to live in Galveston full time in the future, I thoroughly enjoy spending my spare time on the island. Waking up to the sounds and smell of the Gulf of Mexico is not a bad place to be!

Tony purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tony chose Galveston

I have had a love of old houses since childhood and have renovated several in the last 15 years. While some would look upon an old beat up, boarded window house with horror, I see history and stories from the past. Bringing it up to date is a joy and a chance to keep Galveston's past alive.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5
My family (of 6) loved this precious beach pad. Beachy Keen is literally steps from the seawall where you can eat and play. The house is furnished with everything a family needs, including a washer and dryer-a must for the beach. Beachy Keen is minutes from other attractions like the fisherman's wharf, where you can buy fresh seafood and cook it at the house (which is furnished with everything you need to cook your meals). We found the home very tidy. Tony and Ron were so easy to do business with! We will definitely stay at this property again.

Cute Cottage

  • 3 of 5
Really Cute cottage within walking distance of the beach. Loved the photo books with the remodeling pics. Amazing job! All of our questions were promptly answered. The fenced yard was nice for the pets. We had to leave early though, didn't even spend the night, and wasn't offered any sort of refund for the remainder of the nights we booked. It was August and the air conditioning just could not keep up with the Texas Heat! Also, our pets, who travel extensively with us, were scared beyond belief inside this cottage. They have never acted so strangely in any property! We don't know what made them so frightened. We humans were enjoying it!
I would stay again if I weren't traveling with pets and a toddler.

Owner's Response: Lisa,

Well, I'm so glad you loved Beachy Keen but disappointed that your vacation was not all you hoped it would be. Since I'm getting your review in January and your stay was in August, I'm unable to inspect the air conditioning for you. However, as the weather warms up this summer I will make sure we can "keep the heat out" and insure a comfortable stay. As for your dogs, I'm just as baffled as you are, but I do hope that if your travel plans permit you'll give Beachy Keen Beach Pad another chance!

Thanks .....The Management Team

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My honey, myself & a couple of good friends have rented this place on two separate occasions. Loved every thing about this cozy little house. Only sorry it was already booked for LSR 2013. I would of loved to be staying there for this Rally. The owner's are wonderful to work with. The place is very clean & has a certain feel of home to it. All future vacationers, you will most definitely enjoy your stay in this little cozy home. A.K. BLANKENSHIP

Great alternative to a hotel

  • 5 of 5
I can't imagine why anyone would stay at a hotel when there is this cute little house available! Tony and Ron were so friendly and easy to work with! This quiet house was perfect for our first trip to the beach with our little girls but it would also work well for a couple on a romantic weekend or a small family with older children too since there are three double beds and plenty of room to spread out. It is immaculately clean and well maintained and had everything we needed and more! It is cute and comfortable and the location can't be beat. It was an easy walk to the beach even for our three year old. We all loved hanging out on the porch too. Our only complaint was we couldn't stay longer. We will absolutely be back! Thanks so much!

Amazing rental and service

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival, Tony met me and my wife at this charming little home. The house is in amazing condition and the decorations are spot on, not too much of a cheesy vacation feel. Very close to the beach and a great location for any events on the island. Will surely be back soon! We brought our dog and she loved it too! Great for pets because it has a fenced yard.
