Why Rebecca Doxey chose Galveston

The home at 2802 is a well constructed example of the brick cottages built in the late 20's. It's proximity to the Kempner Park, the beach and it's view of the Hutchins Mansion were deciding factors as well. The fact that we had recently purchased the house next door, for the same reasons sealed the deal.

Very comfortable beds and soft sheets

  • 5 of 5

The beds were such good quality. We all slept well. We enjoyed cooking on the gas stove. The outdoor grill was ready but we ran out of time. The house was very clean. We would highly recommend staying here. We are already planning coming back next year.

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

Came down for a weekend with our family. When we opened the door we were in love.

The decor was charming, it was spotlessly clean and kept up, and the amenities were great. I was so relieved to see there was a blow dryer.

We couldnt find the sheets to the sofa bed and the owner was there instantly to bring them.

The location was central to everything we wanted to do.

All in all a 5 star stay!

I hosted a women's retreat in Galveston and we rented both of Rebecca's cottages by the Garten Verein. They worked out wonderfully! The owner was extremely easy to communicate with and the houses were spotless when we moved in. We loved that the houses were on a dead-end street and were tucked back into a cute little area with lots of greenery. The decor in this house is amazing, too! I definitely recommend these homes if you are visiting Galveston or attending a wedding at the Garten Verein!

This house was amazing! It was very close to the reception we were attending after the wedding. It was in walking distance. The Owner was very flexible, accommodating, friendly, and helpful. I would definitely recommend this house to all or any other house this owner owns.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this for my mother and step dad for a relaxing weekend get-a-way. And it was perfect! They were equally close to the beach and the strand but tucked away enough to have a nice quiet time together. This house is located on a cul-de-sac. They took naps on the beach and went to some great new restaurants they found out about from some locals. The house itself is wonderfully decorated and updated. The front porch is great for coffee in the morning or wine at night =) Again, the perfect location to be in Galveston and enjoy everything it has to offer.
