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.

Very comfortable & had all the necessary appliances

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.

First Impressions Overcome By Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5

So this review is almost a year later. I tried leaving a review before but VRBO didn't save it. Anyways, here goes...

Upon first arrival, we were shocked at how nice everything was. No expense spared in this tiny cottage. It had everything you could need. Then we noticed very quickly that it wasn't the cleanest, there were wet sheets in the washer that my wife began drying, we swept hair in the bathroom, and there was no toilet paper. My wife then proceeded to contact the property manager who immediately tried to make things right.

Notice the 5 star despite these problems, that is because it was not the managers, nor the owner's faults. They were attempting to make things right. She told him never mind because we were already on our way to the store to buy some other items and we picked some toilet paper up.

This was seriously the worst part of the entire stay.

The location was amazing!!! Loved being just a couple of blocks from the beach. Load up for a short drive or walk if you have a light load to carry. Restaurants around the area were delicious, and for being in what seemed like the middle of downtown, it was very calm, quiet and relaxing. Our family has grown so we will not be able to take another "family" vacation to this cottage, but if my wife and I ever make a trip to Galveston, we will check this property first.

Again, despite the problems at the beginning of our visit, my wife and I were so impressed by the end of the visit, that we had to give a 5 star. We even asked if we could stay another day (unfortunately it was booked and we had to leave). Our only regret was not staying long enough!!

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.
