PERIWINKLE COTTAGE - A RELAXING, PRIVATE GETAWAY

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).

PERFECT ISLAND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had such a wonderful time at the cottage. The house has been stocked with everything you may need and has such a homey, comfortable feeling. The owners are very nice and stay close by if you were to need anything. They were also very helpful on recommendations and information around the area. My kids loved they had a yard to run around in and the little bunk beds are darling. I will be looking forward to stay there again on my next trip to Galveston.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. We are always pleased to hear when our guests enjoyed their stay. We try to make the cottage a Home away from Home, so your feedback tells us we've accomplished that.

We look forward to having you and your family back again soon.

Our stay at the Periwinkle was great! The entire property inside and out was clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable, and the cottage had a little bit of everything that you might need. We will be back!! Thanks Clint!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! WOULD DEFINITELY GO AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
We chose this place initially because the hotel costs for this off-season weekend were inexplicably high, and we had to look for other alternatives. The cottage looked so cute online, and I really liked the comprehensive listing of amenities that helped us know what to expect (as long as you read all the information). We were 2 couples (my parents, my husband and me) along with a 4-year-old. The pull-out sofa bed was really comfy (as was the bed), and my son LOVED the bunk beds! Moreover, the bunk beds were much bigger than I expected -- my very-tall husband could lay in them comfortably. The bunk beds also had some really cute touches -- each has its own light, controlled by its own light switch, and each has a little night stand built into the wall with a handy outlet. The only minor thing is that there's no night-light in the bunkbed room, and it's hard to get a low level of light for kids sleeping in a new place. We'll just bring an extra plug-in nightlight next time we come.

Each of the rooms in the house has its own window AC unit, which was very helpful, since my parents prefer a MUCH colder room for sleeping than we do.
The kitchen has many cooking pots and pans and utensils, a full set of dishes and glasses, and even some storage containers for leftovers. We didn't get a chance to cook at all because we had a lot of activities planned, but it was nice to know we had that option. Although, if you're bringing young kids -- all the dishes and glassware are adult-sized and breakable. Bring some plasticware for the kiddos!

The TV was nice -- but my parents' complaint was that it was pretty difficult to figure out how to use it (It should be noted that they are both VERY tech-UNsavvy, and Clint mentioned that he'd provide instructions for next time). And, my parents were a little sad that the number of channels was limited (my mom didn't get her CNN...). Also, we didn't see a DVD player (although we weren't really looking for it). I didn't want to use the TV, so I don't know whether these problems were actually due to my parents' poor tech skills, or what. Oh, but on the topic of TV -- there's an extra little TV in the bunk bed room, and that worked great for my son.

What really made this place, though, was the little extra touches. Clint thoughtfully provides umbrellas, for example (boy, were those helpful!!). And, there's a collection of beach toys for the kiddos in the laundry room. (Did I mention there's a washer and dryer? So handy!)

We are so glad to hear that your family enjoyed your stay at the Periwinkle Cottage. We really do try to think of everything we can to make our guests stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. And we certainly appreciate constructive feedback , since that helps us improve whenever possible. Since we know that many families (with children) stay with us, we want to make it as kid friendly as we can. The suggestions for more nite lights & plastic dishes are good ideas, so we will add those things as soon as we can. And We will certainly get some instructions for the tv remote, as we know modern technology can be challenging even when you are tech-savy. I also will remember to remind guests that the DVD player is built-in to the television.

Again, we appreciate your kind words and look forward to having your family back to the Periwinkle Cottage at some point in the future.

With Kind Regards
Clint

COZY COTTAGE FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
When we first walked into the house, my girls squealed with delight when they saw the built-in bunk beds! With their own cozy space, they felt right at home. Everywhere you turn in the house is fun and funky design to entice your senses. During our stay we filled the house with warm smells of home-cooking that can't be had at a hotel! The house was located right in the middle of our two biggest attractions: Pleasure Pier and Galveston Island State Park. The neighborhood was quiet except for the sound of our girls playing games in the gated front yard! We were very happy with our stay and will definitely return again - but maybe an adults-only trip next time!

We greatly enjoyed our experience at the Periwinkle Cottage. The house is very charming, with all the amenities you need. We stayed there with our 2 year old son, and it was perfect for us. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, and we couldn't have asked for more!
