We truly adored the Cottage on K!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place for my BFF and I to enjoy our end of summer girls weekend. The cottage was well appointed and cozy. I did have a small issue with the ancient toaster when I attempted to toast a bagel, however it was overall better than any hotel!! Thank you Bruce and David, we will definitely be booking with you again! Best wishes on remodeling the Big House! I'm sure it will be just as amazing as the cottage.

Lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nicely remodeled. Everything is high quality, from the sheets to the washer/dryer. It was also very clean. It is small but the space is used well so it never felt cramped. It's walking distance to the beach. We were very pleased and would highly recommend staying.

Perfect Time Out

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Close to everything the Strand, Seawall and so many great places to see. We are from Houston but love to get away. Small but really a perfect size, location and very thoughtful of how the place was decorated beautiful. The owners are renovating a house in front but still a quiet place to sit back and relax! Would stay there again!

Very comfortable & had all the necessary appliances

  • 4 of 5

The house in front that is under construction was an eyesore, but that didn't stop our enjoyment. Every place we went to was close by & I would recommend your place to others.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Kottage on K was perfect for our family of three for an extended stay of two months. It has everything we needed from well stocked kitchen, high speed broadband internet, premium bedding, and laundry, including all supplies. We were amazed by the tasteful decoration; the pictures do not do justice. The air conditioner is awesome. It is super quiet and super efficient, and it feels so good to come home in the hot afternoon. We also loved the grooved and soft closing cabinet doors. The full kitchen including full size refrigerator came in handy for our extended stay. Having washer and dryer in the house was indeed a blessing.

We needed a place to stay close to UTMB, and the location of Kottage was perfect. Being close to the beach, we enjoyed strolling on Seawall. We were lucky to meet the owners, David and Bruce, and enjoyed long conversations with them. We learned about the history of the Kottage and the area, as well as recommendations for things to do and see. We also appreciated the guided tour of the big house.

In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kottage and would highly recommend to everyone.

Our cottage is a short walk to the beach, and a short drive to the Galveston Pleasure Pier, the Strand, Moody Gardens, and the museums and restaurants at Fisherman's Wharf. We love the fresh seafood, especially the gumbo, and the walks along the seawall mornings and evenings.
