Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to the Captain's Cottage, located in the heart of the East End Historic district of Galveston Island. A 1900's storm survivor and escaping damage by Hurricane Ike's devastation, the Captain's Cottage is a testament to Galveston's resilience as a coastal hub. Built in the early 1870's by Captain Rufus Jameson, a wealthy shipping merchant, it still contains original features such as the hardwood floors as well as remodeled features and furnishings to catch the historical essence of the home. At the same time, much attention has been given to providing modern conveniences for you during your stay.

Upon entering the Cottage, you will find a wonderful living room tastefully decorated and completed with leather sofas and a flat screen TV. Flowing from the living room into the dining area, you have a counter height table with seating for eight. Our spacious kitchen, perfect for any size group, has granite counter tops, a refrigerator with water and ice dispenser, microwave, and a gas stove/oven that includes a center grill. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes and utensils for your cooking needs. Of course for those who enjoy a cup of coffee, a coffee pot and supplies are provided for your stay as well as multiple other kitchen appliances. The kitchen has an additional table that seats four and stools at the large island for comfortable socializing.

On the main floor you will also find the master bedroom graced with a king size bed and flat screen TV. The connected master bath has a claw foot tub/shower and an antique bureau sink/mirror. A second guest bedroom located off the kitchen includes a queen size bed and flat screen TV. Another full size bathroom is just around the corner from the second bedroom. If you travel up the main wooden staircase in the living room you will find a spacious beach themed bedroom and bathroom on the second floor. This bedroom has a queen size bed, and the bathroom has a shower stall. The fourth and final bedroom, is up a staircase at the rear of the house in a loft style bedroom. It contains two twin beds. Additional bedding is provided on our sleeper sofa in the living room, which folds out into a full queen size sleeper.

Many come to the island hoping to enjoy the great weather the coast offers, especially those southern breezes. A wicker furniture set on the front porch will allow you to enjoy your spot in a historic neighborhood with roses and oleanders blooming in our front flower beds. Or if you prefer more privacy, our backyard is a great place to relax with well manicured yard and flower beds, back porch with patio furniture, or a ground level patio with patio table and grill for dining in the outdoors. A favorite feature of our home of course is the large private hot tub on the back patio. Up to six people can relax and enjoy!

The Captain's Cottage is perfectly situated on Galveston Island for whatever kind of getaway you have in mind. Whether a family vacation, family reunion or special event, couple's getaway, or group occasion it is convenient to enjoy all Galveston has to offer. A quick drive, less than a mile, will get you to the Seawall where the beach awaits you. It is also just 8 blocks to the historic Strand district and adjacent cruise ship terminal area. Many unique restaurants and some of the best on the Island are within a pleasant two block walk. If you are interested in the historic side of Galveston, Bishop's Palace, Moody Mansion, and large number of the historic homes on the Galveston Home Tour are right in our neighborhood, as well as various artist carved statues from the bases of large majestic trees destroyed by Hurricane Ike. Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, and Galveston's newest attraction - Pleasure Pier are other places you may want to take in while visiting Galveston.

Come enjoy our Captain's Cottage! Don't forget to check out our guest book to see what others have said about their stay, and be sure to leave your own comments for those that follow.

About Julie

We are the Ellis Family - Marty, Julie, Kylie & Clint. We are a family that enjoys traveling. From beaches to the mountains, national parks to museums, we love seeing and experiencing new places. Many times it is the recommendations of others that have led to great experiences in our travels such as kayaking in Homer, AK. Nothing beats an opportunity to leave it all behind and getaway together as a family! Our home in Galveston has allowed us to do that much more frequently.

Julie purchased this house in 2009

Why Julie chose Galveston

The Ellis family visited the island, staying in the East End Historic District in 2008, before Hurricane Ike's devastation. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and started discussing the idea of owning our own family getaway. We returned to the island after Ike's devastation with the intent of looking into buying a home. Then we found our Captain's Cottage... newly restored and untouched by Ike, complete with an interesting history. We were hooked. Now we visit the island on a regular basis as a home away from home.

What makes this house unique

We love the unique experience of being surrounded by the beautiful and charming historical homes in our neighborhood. Our location centers us in all the activities we enjoy on the island from going to the beach just a short drive away, playing at Moody Gardens for the day, finding cool stores on the Seawall or the Strand, and then add in the benefits of great local restaurants within walking distance. The only thing remaining is to come home to relax and take a soak in the hot tub.

Beautifully restored historic home!

  • 5 of 5
This home was so much more than we anticipated. The kitchen was well equipped. The backyard was a beautiful oasis. We really enjoyed staying in the historic district. It was an easy walk to the Strand. Plenty of room and the furnishings were lovely. By the end of the week it truly felt like home.

A Historical Oasis

  • 5 of 5
A beautifully remodeled and expanded historical home in a fantastic location. The space was more than expected and the quality of the attention to old flooring, amenities, and other historical features was greatly appreciated. Choosing perhaps the hottest and most humid weekend of the year in Galveston, we definitely enjoyed the cool welcome of this beautiful home. The hot tub provided a special treat and a great way to end the day.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
Great space for a large group of people. The large open kitchen, HUGE master bedroom, bathroom and closet were a big surprise given the age of the house. The owners have done a great job of maintaining that cottage feel yet providing all the high end amenities. Really a perfect place for anyone.

This home is in a lovely, convenient neighborhood where one can walk to restaurants, churches, and stores. It is very, very clean, and it has everything one needs to settle into a relaxing atmosphere. The home is beautiful, and the yard is lovely. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our stay in Galveston.

Galveston Wedding!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 nights in the Captain's Cottage. A wedding brought us to Galveston. We all wanted to stay together since some of the family was from out of town. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room. The home was spacious with large rooms and comfortable beds. We all loved the house and were pleased at how beautiful it was! We plan on making another trip to Galveston sometime in 2014! We will definitely stay at the Captain's Cottage! Thanks for making your home comfortable!
