Overview

Galveston House 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.

Wonderful Quaint Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had another great time staying at this property and Clint continues to be attentive to all of our needs. The property is meticulous and has all the comforts of home. The weather unfortunately was not in a favor during our visit, but we were able to take advantage of local indoor activities and shopping. This is our second visit and we will be back again very soon. We would definitely recommend this property if you ever plan to visit the Galveston area.

excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The little cosy cottage was located at a convenient place for my family of three; Not far from the highway and TAMUG, as well as the downtown.

The selling point was the bunker bed that my 8 years-old daughter loved at the moment that she saw it on the web. Throughout our stay, it was a particular spot my daugher loved. The house was well decorated and maintained and we enjoyed our stay at the cottage.

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!
