My husband and I came to Galveston for a mini getaway in celebration of our 4th anniversary. We brought our pug along for the trip and she loved her first beach adventure! The Crystal Cottage is cozy and just a quick walk to the beach. The big backyard was great for our pup to run around after the car ride. The bedroom was super comfortable and we appreciated the amenities throughout the house, like the big kitchen, soft towels, and cute "notes" throughout. Would love to come back!

We LOVED this adorable house. It’s pretty to look at, has ample parking and a great yard for relaxing. Plus, the location is perfect between the beach and The Strand.

We decided to take a quiet trip to the beach after coming to terms with our dog’s terminal cancer that is no longer responding to treatment. Our goal was to take the family on a much needed quiet vacation close enough to the beach for a few short excursions and enjoy some of the local seafood. The house was beautifully decorated, well-maintained, quiet, and just close enough to the beach to drop by multiple times a day when crowds were minimal. We absolutely loved it here.

We had a great stay at the Crystal Cottage! The house had every thing we needed and more. It was decorated very nicely and really made you feel like you were home. We noticed the garbage disposal wasn’t working our second day and notified the local rep, Karen. She sent someone over and fixed it while we were gone. Very prompt and respectful!

Would recommend to family and friends!

This home was the cleanest we have ever rented. The bathrooms were fabulous! The home was fully equipped with plenty of towels, kitchen supplies, and soap. Netflix was a great bonus. It is minutes from the seawall and local restaurants and attractions (including Gaido’s and Pleasure Pier). We greatly appreciate being able to bring our two dogs and having a large, fenced yard for them to run in. Highly recommend this cottage!

We loved the house. Interior design lovely. Location very convenient. Had a great time. Very clean . All you need for cooking. We wanted to stay away from people and did home cooking.

We loved the layout, fenced yard for our dog and the kitchen was perfect. Tons of utensils and cookware, new appliances and plenty of seating.
The location is perfect to access the sea wall and strand and we enjoyed getting a golf cart to take us around. We will be back!

We absolutely loved everything about the house. It is gorgeous inside!! One of the best parts was we also got to enjoy it with our dogs. Walking to the beach was easy and there are many restaurants nearby too.

We made a last minute decision to drive down from Dallas and it was the best decision ever! This house is exactly as depicted in the photos. It’s a beautiful cottage, fully updated and perfect for 3-5 people. The entire place is wonderfully decorated with top of the line appliances, sleek bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. You are a short walk to the Seawall and a 6 minute drive to the Strand. I would 100% recommend this rental to anyone visiting Galveston!

The cottage was pristine and decorated in a very homey and comfortable way. Probably the prettiest house we’ve ever vacationed in!

We spent the week relaxing at this beautifully decorated home. Our family started each day with breakfast at home then a walk to the beach. We rented bikes and rode along the seawall daily. The home was perfect for our family of five. - two spacious, modern bathrooms and comfy beds for all. Highly recommend!!

The house is a gem! Very comfy, small, but very open space for entertaining and family fun! We will definitely be back!
