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!!

Delightfully restored alley house in the heart of historic Galveston

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. This recently restored alley house is everything advertised, and more. It is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you'll need to cook, with high quality pots, pans, dishes and glasses. The bathroom is nicely done, with a great tiled shower. The bed is comfortable, which we really appreciate. The location is perfect, in the old, historic part of the east end. It's four blocks from the beach, three blocks from the Bishop's Palace, and for exercise-walkers, the Strand or Pleasure Pier are only 20 minutes away. I will certainly be recommending this property to my friends who travel to Galveston.

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.
