COZY DOWN HOME BEACH COTTAGE 3 BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH

Galveston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

The Down Home Beach Cottage was completely restored/ renovated in 2008-2010. It is located in the old San Jacinto Conservation District, which is on the gulf side of Galveston's famous historic east end. This area was destroyed during the Geat Storm of 1900, and was rebuilt after the hurricane as a neighborhood of 'worker's cottages' to house those working to rebuild the city. You can still get a feeling from the scale and character of the architecture of this neighborhood what it may have been like over 100 years ago. The San Jacinto Conservation District is a neighborhood in transition, which boasts a 'beach community' feel that exudes a more laid back and slower paced existence- even by Galveston standards! Be prepared for quaint cottage, 'funky beachtown' meets down home Galveston!

The cottage is approximately 1,000 square feet with 2 bedrooms and one bath. During the restoration, layers of materials and additions that were installed over the years had to be literally peeled back to reveal the homes original personality. Original cypress siding, windows, interior doors, and heart pine floors were salvaged, while the kitchen and bath were given substantial updates. The goal of the remodel was to retain as much of the period style and scale as possible, in playing up the charm and coziness of the home. The kitchen is 'cook friendly' in that it is well equipped, with everything at your finger tips. The cottage has a homey, cozy feel; and is tastefully furnished with a collection of flea market, thrift store, and antique shop finds. For ultimate comfort, several new items were brought in.

The garden is planted with a mix of grasses, perennials, herbs, and tropicals. Sip your morning coffee while rocking away on the front porch. A back patio is planned to be completed by early summer for bar-b-ques or R & R.

The Down Home Beach Cottage is perfectly located for your Galveston stay. It will easily accomodate groups of up to 4 who are wanting to experience what Island visitors affectionatly call 'The Causeway Effect' !

The house was exactly what we needed for our stay. We had enough room for us and the house was fully equipped with everything you need. Good communication with the owner for a last minute booking. Thanks again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Galveston (went to visit our son) and are hoping to get back as we picked the coldest Thanksgiving week ever. Owners made sure we had blankets. Kitchen is great. We did lots of Thanksgiving cooking. Only wish we had been able to enjoy the front porch or patio. Next time. Recommend the Gumbo Cafe (?) for chilly weather dinner.

The ideal beach cottage and located nicely to much that Galveston has to offer. Beaches, neighborhood deli and seawall are all within walking distance. The house is comfortably furnished making the stay away from home fell just like home!

This nicely decorated, clean cottage with new appliances (love the washer & dryer) had everything we wanted and more. Looks just like the photos on the website. Cool, comfortable inside and we appreciated the coffee, snacks, including biscuits for our dog, and supplies that were provided. Thank you so much for your kindness in providing those. We bought groceries and cooked using the provided utensils. Plenty of dishes, glasses,and small appliances as well as Webber grill. Loved the rocking chairs on front porch and the interesting folk art inside. Location great! Bring mosquito repellent (which we did). Short walk to beach and close to Strand, Harbor, and all the restaurants we wanted to visit. We enjoyed a fun and restful vacation in this house. Highly recommend!
