Oceanfront, upscale artist's condo w/ shared pool - dogs OK!
Host your next couples' retreat at this beachfront Galveston vacation rental. As one of the six fabulous homes at the Condo di Cocco complex right across from the beach on Seawall Boulevard, this dog-friendly getaway comes with access to a pool and furnished patio.
If you're looking for a quiet, sophisticated spot to spend your beach vacation, this is the place. Cross the street and find yourself at the warm, gentle Gulf waters. Try stand-up paddle boarding with a rental from one of the many friendly shops along the main road where your condo conveniently sits. Local restaurants and bars sit among these shops, as well. Catch a classic musical at The Grand 1894 Opera House just a little over a mile away. Imagine a perfect day with an oceanfront breakfast followed by a matinee, then an easy evening at the beach.
Inside the one-bedroom condo is bright and colorful artwork you can only find there. That's because they are pieces by the owner, who also has work displayed at many Galveston restaurants. The fresh and welcoming color palette throughout the home reflects the outside of complex, from the building to the natural shades surrounding it.
Check out the cool, aquamarine pool in the shared space. Here, one small, well-behaved dog (up to 25 pounds) can make friends with other canine guests while you chat with their owners under the sun. (Please note that an additional pet fee applies.) Fire up one of the two charcoal grills for a dinner of local seafood and enjoy it casually outside or in private at your breakfast bar.
The uniquely shaped chairs at the bar reflect the attention to detail and design in this home. Among the soft marine shades are modern amenities like a DVD- and cable-equipped flatscreen TV. Secure show tickets or charter a boat using the provided WiFi.
Wake up and fix a fresh pot of coffee to enjoy on the private, oceanview balcony with cafe seating, and watch gulls drift overhead. The concept kitchen has all the basic tools needed, as well as a double sink, dishwasher, and glass-top stove.
Sink into bed after a day in the sun inside the bright and airy bedroom with queen-size bed, second TV, and access to that private balcony. One of the sofas pull-out into a sleeper, so if you have a total of four guests, there will be comfy accommodations for all.
You'll love the updated bathroom with stand-up shower and glass door. Plus, there's a laundry room on site to freshen up your swimsuits while you head out for the evening!
In addition to the must-have amenities at Condo di Cocco, the pool, and BBQ, you’ll be right there at the beach. The island of Galveston boasts a wide variety of activities. Learn about local wildlife at Moody Gardens, about six miles away. Next to that is the Lone Star Flight Museum for a bit of history. Fishing piers dot the shore, so you anglers will want to bring your rods and nets. For a quiet afternoon among nature, take a 12-mile drive to Galveston Island State Park.
Lovers of art, modern decor, and of course the beach will adore this Texas vacation rental! See Galveston in a new light when you stay at CoccoLocco.
Well furnished, very secure, comfortable, great view, centrally located, and while on my last day I carefully packed up every item and every leftover I brought and bought, I left my laptop of all things and they fed ex’d it to me next day with comforting, gracious assurance. Well managed. Top recommendation.
Piers within walking distance and Beach across the street.
wifi was a little sketchy but overall ok.
Enjoyed everything about this unit except the following:
- roll out twin in the living room is unusable - friend had to sleep on couch - mattress needs to be replaced
- ice maker frozen over so had to use ice trays
- can opener and wine opener didn’t work
The above issues can easily be fixed.
Now for the good: clean, perfect location in the middle of everything. Lots of restaurants and the Pleasure Pier a short walk away. It was great to be able to be on the beach and pop back to the unit every so often to take my dog out. Gated secure parking and entry.
This will be my go to condo in Galveston from now on. A gem of a find.
Christina, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We will address the feedback you provided with the local staff. Thank you for bringing them to our attention. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
I like that it is a small place that has secure parking.
A comfortable home with all you Need to have a good Time. Check in and out without Meeting without Meet a Manager .
Very cute place to stay. Lots of scrubs and colorful plants. Very nice and well kept swimming pool.
Everything is very nice, well taken care of and perfectly organized. Was so easy to have our little dog with us and have a little area outside for him. Great location and very well organized! Made it super easy to book, arrive, get key, etc.!
Nice clean place close to beach and everything else
Was a great unit, 2 story, having 2 bathrooms was great, kitchen provided everything my own kitchen has, plus more. View from any unit has a beach view from second floor easily. Gated parking lot was great, and having key codes to check in(rather then checking in/out with someone) made checkin/checkout awesome. Beach walkway/strip across the street, and restaurants just a block or 2 walk away. Outdoor pool/hot tub for just the unit folks was very comfortable.
Loved the location. Across seawall blvd from the beach. Close to restaurants and bars. Close to the strand. Loved hearing the surf while in the hot tub.
View, pool, privacy. Convenient to lots of stuff
We had a great time here and will definitely be coming back
Loved the location, lay out of condo, grills, pool, view, great family place
By far a really good place to stay. You can walk outside and go to the beach. It’s very convenient for food and restaurants. Love millers by the way. During Mardi Gras it was easy to get to everything. Above all nice and secure area. I would for sure come back to this place. Thank you so much. Oooo. And the upstairs balcony was awesome overlooking the water.
Very relaxing time, we loved everything about the place. Very Clean and Great Location. We definitely be back.
This place was perfect. Unobstructed view of the ocean. Clean with everything you could possibly need! Bedroom upstairs has comfy bed and flat screen TV. Separate closet room with drawers and shelves. Both bathrooms are spacious. Upstairs bathroom has large shower and two sinks. Downstairs bathroom is 1/2-convenient so don't have to go upstairs to use bathroom. Has balcony and little porch area off living area. Walking distance to great restaurants. Will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
Condo was clean and conveniently located to the beach. Secured parking was a plus and free laundry is great.
We loved everything about this condo. Definitely felt like home away from home! Will definitely be returning soon
This was my 5th visit to Condo di Cocco. I have no complaints about this Unit. It was very clean and everything worked including the outdoor spa.
Really great location, and property.
Definitely going back again
Really enjoyed the ease of getting to the beach. This was what we were mainly looking for. Unit was clean, although there was one thing that needed to be addressed it was taken care of promptly by the manager. We appreciated this greatly. Unit was decorated very nicely and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Only annoyances: ice machine did not work. Instead there are two ice trays. As other reviewers mentioned the AC is loud and lastly when the ac is not on, the street noise is very loud. Grounds were clean but we did notice that the two trash cans were over filling by day two. Laundry was great no issues. Lastly, pool was very warm but we can for the ocean so no biggie. Overall, we’d love to come back. Perhaps when it’s a bit cooler. Black out currents would be a nice addition but that just us. Great place.
Very nice. Clean. Great location. Very relaxing.
We stayed in the Cocco Loco condo. It was the perfect location to walk to the beach and have access to many things the island offers.
The proximity to the beach is amazing! The hot tub and pool were great for relaxing. The condo unit was well maintained and definitely a place I will revisit.
The condo was so nice and cozy! We loved that it was on the seawall yet very private and quiet. We will be back!
Only six units and very secure make for an enjoyable stay! Great location and dog friendly!
Loved that it was right across the street from the beach and walking distance from restaurants and Paradise Pier. Loved that you walk out of your unit to the pool and hot tub area and you only share it with 5 other units so it's like having your own pool. There was gated parking and you park right at your door. The place was clean and updated. The only complaint I have is that the air conditioner was very loud. It did wake me several times when it clicked on. I would still stay here in the future though.
Great location , beach right across the street. Saltgrass and Denny’s walking distance .Also the pier was in walking distance .. I would stay again ! ❤️❤️❤️👍👍😂
We stayed here for our first Father’s Day with ourn2 month old baby. It was perfect. We could be at the pool with the monitor enjoying ourselves but know that we are steps away if she woke up. The beach view from the balcony was great too. It was perfect for us.
Great location and priced right. No hassles
We enjoyed our visit. The condo was good, but we had a couple issues. The fan in the bedroom was about to fall out of the ceiling, the air vent rattled and woke me up every time the air cut on, there was no sheets for the twin pull out bed, had to use full or queen, there was no pot holders in the kitchen, and the ice maker poured water over the ice so you couldn’t use the ice dispenser. Even with all that, we thought the condo was adorable. The pool area is set up good and it’s easy to keep an eye on the kids if you have kids. I loved the original decorations in the house! Very close to everything. You can walk to pleasure pier, gift shops, and restaurants!!
Very nice place. Nice view. Convenient. Was not crazy about four dogs running loose around the pool.
We loved the place. Where can you have a hot tub, pool, and ocean view in one place. Very convenient, clean, and the property well maintained. It was quiet and comfortable. Loved watching the dolphins pass by in the morning while drinking my coffee.
Was a great location for being on the beach all day. Hot tub did not work. Style of rental home was great.
Perfect location. Nice set up.
Very nice, lots of room across from the gulf would recommend.
The condo was very nice. All the comforts of home. The view was magnificent
Dominic is a wonderful manager; keeps the place spotless and very available if needed. Wonderful place to bring your dog. All dog people we have met there are very nice and respectful of property.
We stayed at one of the condo for 3 days for our 10 year anniversary and it was ridiculously a relaxing stay. Gorgeous view of the ocean and a peaceful atmosphere. We love how well furnished the place is and you don’t have to worry about bringing dinnerware, cooking-ware, toulettry etc. We were not quite sure if facility had a laundry mat but other than that, it was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary getaway!
This is a great spot for those who have dogs and don't want to be on a huge property. This is a six condo unit with a nice pool and hot tub right on the Seawall, near lots of attractions. We went the week of Thanksgiving, and it wasn't crowded at all. I really loved the fact that the condos were two stories, giving you a bird's eye view of all the action at the beach, and on the Seawall. Also, you have great views of the sunrise. The condo itself was tastefully decorated and clean. However, the bed was small and a bit stiff for my taste, but I'm a pretty large person. We had a good time, and will likely stay there again in the future.
To future guest if you want to experience a special place to stay this place will make you want to come back its like your own private getaway.
The property is nice, convient to the beach, and not far from the strand. The staff is terrific. We brought our puppy with us and found several pet friendly restaurants & stores. We found a wonderful pet sitter “Galveston Pet & House Sitting Services” for those few times when we could not take our dog with us.
Everyone was very helpful and friendly booking and making sure our stay was wonderful. The balcony overlooking the ocean is very nice.
Can't wait to return
The condo property is very well maintained and located in a prime seawall spot. You can walk out the pedestrian gate and head across the street to a pool bar or head to the beach! Each condo has a private balcony if people watching and wave watching are your thing. Pleasure pier, restraints and shopping are all well within walking distance. Go book your stay! You won't regret it!
Way too expensive. No customer service. It sleeps 2. Nice kitchen. It has a pool. The dumpster is nasty and looks like it hasnt been emptied in months.
We are very disappointed to read this review. There was a week when garbage pick-up was missed due to an accounting error, and we apologize if this was a large inconvenience. The dumpster is located at the very back end of the property, so we would hope it wouldn't be a problem. These units are in a great location directly across from the ocean with secured parking. There is a hot tub and pool and unique local artwork displayed in the home. We feel it's a great place to stay!
The place was amazing. Just like the pics...we are already planning our next stay later this summer.
We loved the place, it was even nicer than advertised.
Just enough space for a family of four to spread out and relax. The privacy of the the pool area and security of the entire property was comforting, and the property was well landscaped, decorated, and equipped. Enjoyed it!
My husband and I stayed the weekend in June for our 27th anniversary. We loved the condo and location. We rode our bikes during the day and relaxed at night. Even though there are 6 condos it felt like we were the only guest there. We will definitely stay again!!!!!!
Overall a good experience and I would stay again. Location is great... just a short walk to the Pleasure Pier. Lots to do near by and across the island. The condo had everything needed to get by. Great trip!
We will definitely be back!
The view from the condo is excellent. Spending time on the upper deck and overlooking the ocean as the waves rolled in by moonlight was a memory that will last a lifetime. Staff was very courteous and friendly. Laundry facility was kept very clean and easy access. Loved the gated premises, gave me a better feel of security.
Wonderful! We are repeat customers and plan to return in the future. Location is perfect. Condo is lovely with unique decor. Good internet and TV. We feel more secure with the gated parking. Reservations, check-in, and check-out is easy. Good places to eat that are walking distance (Salt Grass, Miller's). Great value for your money compared to anywhere else in Galveston.
Relaxing, comfortable, would have liked to move in and call home
Perfect location! Nice condos. Gated with private pool & jacuzzi! Right across the street from beach!
Return guests love the location in relation to beach, restaurants, shopping, church. Just the right size and set up for our family.
Great location. Very unique. Clean. Nicely furnished. We'll be staying here again
Wonderful Stay! Nice & Quiet! Will reserve for 2017!!!
Thank you for having such a cute and comfortable island condo. As a former G-town resident, I felt like I was at home again. *sigh* It was wonderful to wake up, get a cup of coffee, and take a sunrise walk on the beach. Thank you again!
Loved it here. The condo is lovely, the location is great. The pool and hot tub are awesome! Should we find ourselves in Galveston again, we would certainly stay here!
Don't look further! This is the place to stay.
My wife and me went to stay for the weekend everything was great, the location, the views. Everything is also in walking distance. Great place for you and your love one. The only problem we had was that my wife is allergic to dog hair so there was more than we hoped in the bed so she kept sneezing most of the time. But great stay!
This was a vacation for my 90 year old mother. She walked into the condo and the first thing out of her mouth was "this is perfect". The decor was really nice and the apt was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The view from the top balcony was great. We were in walking distance from all the places we wanted to visit. This is the best place to stay in Galveston!
We really enjoyed our stay. The appliances in the unit were top notch and furnishings very comfy. Restaraunts and several bars within walking distance. The pool is great as you can sit and relax and enjoy the ocean view. Thanks!
Great place, great location!!
My two teen daughters and I stayed for a long weekend and couldn't be happier. We loved the condo and it was great that the girls were within walking distance of Pleasure Pier and the beach. Everything was very clean and extra touches like laundry soap and dish liquid was wonderful. We had plenty of blankets and pillows, and everything was very clean. Loved it and would love to stay again! Thank you!
The location of these condos is great! And, the fact that there are only 6 condos with a pool and hot tub just for those 6 condos is really nice. However, we left a bit disappointed. We stayed there June 26-29. When we arrived, there were a few little issues - there was no gate remote for us to use (we had to physically get out of the car and open the gate for the entirety of our trip), the hall light didn't work when we first came in and we couldn't see at night, there was a dirty towel on our balcony leftover from the previous renter, we couldn't get the hot tub to work (the control panel has changed from when the instructions were written), and we couldn't get any lights to come on for the pool or the surrounding area - it was pitch dark in the evenings. We spoke to some other renters about it as well and they agreed - it was creepily dark. On the second day someone from Vacasa called us to see if we could be in the unit so that the air conditioner repair person could come by. I thought it was odd that they would ask us to spend part of our short vacation waiting on an AC repair. However, I told him that the AC was working fine so they canceled that. Then on the second day the pool and hot tub stopped working altogether. They became dirty and stagnate. The pool was already so warm that it was not refreshing and after it stopped circulating it was much worse. And the hot tub would not get warm and the jets didn't work. It was so very disappointing. :(
We apologize for the inconveniences these guests experienced. All units in the complex now have gate remotes in them, and the HOA has notified pool maintenance regarding the pool and hot tub complaints.
You must stay here... Cute condo and perfect location!
The condo overall was clean and well maintained, but the sheets and comforter on the master bed were covered in what appeared to be black dog hair. The hair was all over the bottom sheet, top sheet, bottom and top of comforter. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever encountered in a VRBO property. In addition, the bed on the pull out bed had no sheets -- none on the bed nor with the extra linens. It simply had a comforter that looked like it had never been changed. In addition, we only had three bath towels in the condo and there were four of us. We had to call to request all of these items. They were delivered, but we never did NOT receive sheets for the pull out bed which was upsetting. Luckily, we had a blanket from home that we were able to use. Overall, the sleeping experience left us feeling gross with the condition of the beds.
We apologize that the linens/bedding and towels caused some distress for this stay. The Property Manager has spoken with housekeeping so they can be more mindful of properly stocking the home while cleaning.
Great place to stay! Quiet and roomy! Will definitely stay again!
We loved the proximity to beach, restaurants, shops and bicycle rentals. Lunch at Mosquito Cafe and dinner at Steakhouse in the San Luis were fantastic! Road noise was a little distracting but used the fan at night to mute the sound. Pool, hot tub and grill area was beautifully landscaped.
We had a great time. Condo di Cocco is the best place I have ever stayed at on the Island and I have been going to Galveston for many years. Very private feel with your own swimming pool and hot tub right out your back patio, gated parking with remote access, personal parking place, I felt like I was home. Everything is within walking distant that you could want. The view of the ocean is wonderful from your balcony down or upstairs. We will definitely be staying here again. Can't wait to go back!! I did'nt want to leave!!!
Great Location, ability to reach everything within a few miles.
The location of the condo is amazing, and super cozy for a weekend escape with your partner. Right across the street from the beach, local shops, restaurants and bars all around, and just a few blocks from the Galveston Boardwalk. Not the right choice for more than two people, but perfect to share time away with your loved-one.
My husband and I had a great time. We will be back.
We loved our stay here. Perfect location and very clean. The pool and hot tub are right out the back door. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the sleeper sofa was twin size. So to sleep 2 downstairs one has to sleep on the couch and one on the pull out twin sofa. I never could get the coffee maker to work. Not sure if it was user error or broken. All that said, I would for sure come back.
We enjoyed our stayed on a long weekend visit to Galveston, the condo was very quiet and peaceful get away, with a great view of the beach at sunrise and sunset. Great location that we never knew of and we are looking forward to staying again soon.
My fiancé and I stayed here for my birthday weekend and the condo is super cozy and very clean and neat. It's in a great location with bars and restaurants within walking distance. You also get great views of the beach from both patios. We will definitely be back!
The Galveston area and beaches were much nicer than we expected. The condo is in a great location just across the street from the seawall and less than a mile to pleasure pier and restaurants.
The condo is clean and the split level worked well for us and our kids, age 7 and 4. The pool and hot tub are just out the back door and there is a great view of the gulf from the upstairs balcony.
We will definitely return!
Loved the condo, location and complex. Great getaway for 2. Was bummed the hot tub didn't heat and the showers weren't very warm.
Two story condo with the bedroom and full bath upstairs. Half bath, full kitchen and living room downstairs. Both rooms have double French doors that open to patios with a view of the ocean. The pool and hot tub are right outside the door downstairs. Great location and pretty secure. The hot tub wasn't working which was disappointing especially since I was there in Jan and there was no sleeper sofa so it could only accommodate two people but overall I was pleased with my stay.
Thank you for your review. We apologize that the hot tub was not working for your stay; the Property Manager will inspect it right away.
1 bedroom 2 story condo.... We visited family and they visited us at the condos..... They wanted to stay too.....
We had a great long weekend at this condo. The smaller complex was a perfect fit for us. It felt like you had your own place without the congestion of a larger complex. Our girls loved the fact that we could just walk across the street to play at the beach and were in town near everything. Also being able to walk right out the back door and get in the pool and hot tub was key for them and us. Great ending to our summer!
