Overview

Galveston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 comfortably

The Periwinkle Cottage is a traditional cottage with a warm, inviting charm throughout. From the moment you step inside, you'll be reminded of a getaway cottage you visited during a childhood vacation. The living room has cozy knotty-pine walls and there are wood floors in all rooms except the bathroom. It's like a step back in time, but equipped with today’s modern conveniences. The home was completely renovated with a new metal roof, electrical, plumbing, bathroom and kitchen appliances.

Inside, furnishings include newer items mixed with antiques and some collectibles, new beds and linens, a fully stocked kitchen and a full collection of books on a variety of subjects for both adults and children. We’ve even added a large deck for relaxing outside, a BBQ pit for grilling! The landscaped yard is fenced and a great area for kids to play outside. We’ve tried to think of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

And so far, the feedback from our guests is unanimous: Periwinkle Cottage is a fun place to stay! Many of our returning guests have come to regard the comfortable cottage as their “home” away from home. Kids especially love the built-in alcove bunk beds in the second bedroom. Each bed has a built-in night stand with individually controlled lights so you can read a book or play a game without disturbing your bunk-mate. The bunks were designed with grown-ups in mind too; with 36' of head-room they’re roomy enough to not bump your head. And the kitchen is just as cheerful as it could possibly be; with bright and fun retro colors and with coordinated linens, the space reminds you that you're on vacation and supposed to be having fun!

We take pride in keeping the Periwinkle Cottage in tip-top shape and ready for guests on a moment’s notice. We personally check-in our guests, so that we can give you a tour and explain where everything is located. We often provide guidance for locating the favorite places to eat, as well as information about local family attractions. And we’re always available if there are any questions or concerns that arise during your stay, because we live in the neighborhood (just a few blocks away).

Fabulous Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the Periwinkle Cottage, the pictures of the house are very good but it is much better in person. Our girls (2 and 6) really enjoyed the bunk beds and the backyard. Our oldest has now claimed this as "our" vacation home. Everything is provided for your stay, the house was very clean and comfortable (beds are fabulous). We were minutes away from all of the major attractions and we actually walked to the beach too. The kitchen is gorgeous with lots of natural light and my husband loved using their new grill. We are already planning our return trip. Thank you Clint for making our stay so enjoyable.

THIS PROPERTY IS INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5

Listen up kids - our stay at Clint Smith's property was EXCELLENT. The house is entirely charming! He delivered an awesome experience for me and my partner. The house itself is adorable and features vintage art throughout the rooms, wood floors, an awesome fenced front yard featuring a deck with seating, and an umbrella with plush grass on the lawn. There is also a washer and dryer on site to use at no additional charge. The beds had great linens and were very comfortable. He also provides plenty of quality pots, pans, and utensils you may need to cook meals during your stay. Everything was EXCEPTIONALLY clean! The towels provided were of great quality! This property exceeded our expectations and was very well priced. But the truly memorable part of staying at the Periwinkle Cottage was that Clint was incredibly gracious, helpful and knowledgeable about local entertainment and good eats, and a fantastic representative for good ol' fashioned hospitality. We were comfortable, amused and entertained through our entire weekend. And we were able to do it while we drank a few too many cocktails in the private yard, slept in a fabulous bed, and had some much needed grown-up time away from responsibilities and stress. I spent several years as a concierge for Starwood properties at W Hotels, and as a concierge for the 6 Columbus Hotel and 60 Thompson Hotel in New York City. And I LOVE a good accommodation experience that has character and interest. This little Galveston secret is totally cool without even knowing it's awesome. But you will absolutely feel like you have discovered a travel secret where the cool kids want to play if you stay here.

Beautiful Home and Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Clinton was absolutely a pleasure to rent from and we are looking forward to returning again this year. The house was just big enough for my family of 4. Having Wi-Fi and bunk beds was a plus for a family with young children. Thanks Clinton for a wonderful time.

The Periwinkle Cottage was a delightful surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Our two night stay at the Periwinkle Cottage was the perfect solution to our weekend in Galveston. The cottage is located in center of Galveston which made everything easy and fast to get around to. Clint was so thorough and helpful to work with. He made the reservation process a breeze and covered all the bases which made our arrival all the much easier. When we arrived at the Periwinkle Cottage, Clint met us there to check in, give us as tour of the cottage and provided wonderful suggestions for restaurants that would enhance our short stay in Galveston. We just told him what we were looking for and he provided perfect suggestions and followed up with a more detailed email. The Mosquito and Sunflower were delicious. Also, the parking at the cottage was easy and convenient. As for the cottage itself - what a wonderful place to spend the weekend or more! Each room is filled with wonderfully interesting artwork, accessories, furnishings and all the comforts needed. The kitchen was well stocked and was even furnished with delicious gourmet coffee. The deck area was so relaxing and festive complete with decorative outdoor lighting and beautiful plants. I would highly recommend the Periwinkle Cottage to anyone staying in Galveston. We will definitely be returning for another visit. Thank you, Clint!

We are also pleased to know that you enjoyed your trips to Mosquito and Sunflower; we'll be sure to let the owners know they're making visitors happy! We look forward to having you (and John) back as soon as you're ready to come back down! Clint

Wonderful stay! Comfortable, cozy, and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We vacation in Galveston yearly and this year we decided to try a vacation rental away from the seawall. Best decision ever! Periwinkle Cottage was perfect....very comfortable and quiet. We found that the location was ideal as it is centrally located between the harbor and the seawall. We were very pleasantly surprised by the unusually fast internet and a Roku box for the tv. The cottage is very well appointed and it seems that nothing has been forgotten. The atmosphere is homey and warm with a great midcentury flair. The owner was gracious and accommodating during our stay and even more-so afterward when he kindly went out of his way to return the iPad I accidentally left behind. Periwinkle Cottage was a lovely and romantic place to get away for a few days and we certainly plan on staying there again on our next trip.

Owner's Response: Dear Laura , I'm so glad you decided to try something different this year, and book a stay with us. We're always pleased to hear when our guests enjoyed the cottage as much as you did. And we agree with you that the location is ideal ! The Periwinkle Cottage offers the best of both worlds; easy access to the places you want to go, but without the hustle-bustle surroundings that often accompany a home that’s in the thick of everything. Our guests have never been disturbed by the nuisances of staying in a more populous area, like loud music, noisy cars or difficulty finding a place to park. Those issues simply don’t exist. With the cottage tucked away in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood, guests find they’re able to relax in the evenings and get a good night sleep. This leaves you well-rested and ready for whatever the next day has to offer. It allows you to make the most of your vacation, and to return home feeling revitalized and recharged. Most importantly, the mid-town neighborhood is centrally located and less than 5 minutes from the seawall with easy access to the beach, restaurants, shopping and many other favorite attractions. Thanks again for taking the time to share your review of the Periwinkle Cottage, and we look forward to having your family back again soon! Kind Regards, Clint

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation and just like most first timers we were a little scared about renting a rental property. Our experience from the initial phone call to the moment we checked out was perfect. Clint made us feel comfortable from the beginning and he let us know that if we needed anything he was a phone call away. The Periwinkle Cottage was accurately described. The property was very clean and had every accommodation needed to feel at home. We have 3 kids(ages 2, 8, and 9 ) and the bunk beds were a major hit with the kids. We loved the fenced yard and being able to relax on the deck and have a cookout. The neighborhood was very quiet and minutes away from the beach. Clint was very helpful in recommending local places to eat and activities to do while in area. Pleasure Pier and Moody Gardens were minutes away and we loved both attractions especially the kids. I would recommend this property for anyone especially first timers with kids. We are thinking of doing a parents only weekend get away and staying here but for sure will come back next year with the kids. Once again Clint thank for your hospitality.

Thank you for everything Clint!

Sincerely,

The Flores Family

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words Fernando ! We consider it a tremendous compliment that your first vacation rental was at the Periwinkle Cottage, and it turned out to be such a positive and memorable experience for your family. We are glad that you were able to treat your children to so many of the islands' attractions while you were here. There's plenty more to see and do next time ! And, of course, we are pleased to know the accommodations were so ideal for your family. We do make every effort to make sure our guests are comfortable during their stay, because we want to be relaxed and ready to come back again in the future. Thanks again! Clint
