Dog-friendly, exquisitely styled cottage in Midtown Galveston Island
Bring your family, friends, and small canine companions along for your next Texas gulf coast getaway! They're all sure to love the elegant atmosphere of this charming cottage, perfectly positioned to enjoy the natural and urban wonders of Galveston.
Your new home away from home for eight is a mere half-mile from the sandy shores and warm gulf waters of East Beach and the famous Galveston seawall, to say nothing of the attractions of Pleasure Pier! At the same time, this home is right in Midtown, making trips to family-friendly destinations like La Kings Candy Factory or more upscale options like the Grand 1894 Opera House quick and easy.
The living room is a great place to sit back and relax after a long day out and about, and provides a good place from which to admire the elegant atmosphere and combination of classic and modern furnishings and decor. Stretch out on one of the sofas and see what's on the cable flatscreen TV, or have a movie marathon thanks to an in-house library and DVD player. Don't forget about WiFi throughout the house!
Spend a few quiet moments on the patio, gently rocking back and forth on the front porch swing and watching the oak tree gently sway in the warm breeze. Afterwards, head back inside and get ready for dinner, with a first-class gourmet kitchen! Stainless steel appliances and plenty of room with ample counterspace and a kitchen island make cooking easy and fun. Take a seat at the table nearby, or dine in the backyard by the grill. When you're done, just bring your dishes back to the kitchen and load them into the dishwasher.
Eight guests at once can use this home's four bedrooms and three bathrooms, with two dogs of up to 20 pounds also welcome for a small nightly fee. Adults will love the king- and queen-size beds in the master suites, with an additional generous queen-size bed in the third bedroom. Kids will love the two twin-size beds in the final bedroom, which has oversized stuffed animals for them to play with!
Wake up with a soothing shower from one of the nearby bathrooms and pick up some fresh clothes from the private washer and dryer before you head out and explore! You've got plenty of shops and restaurants to try if you get tired of cooking at home. Extreme Water Sports, just two miles away, lets you experience thrills like jetskiing, float boats, and water hover and flyboarding. Don't forget to bring the kids along for fun days out at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark and Moody Gardens - they're both within five miles away!

The house was elegantly decorated and very spacious. We had 3 couples stay and it was very comfortable. Close proximity to all attractions. Great place to rent. We will keep it on the list for our return visit!
We loved our stay and are definitely adding it to our repeat list. The home was cozy with plenty of room, fully stocked game cabinet, super clean bathrooms, and was just as pictured. One thing to note tho, the bedroom with the king bed is NOT a private room. It's upstairs, with the twin bedroom and a jack and jill bathroom. The entrance to it is at the end of a small hallway at the top landing but it doesn't have a door. This wasn't an issue for our family but is good to know if you expected it to be. I will add, it is still plenty quiet in there does feel private, but it does have an open entrance. The house as lots of charm for being remodeled.
We truly enjoyed our stay at this great home.
All the rooms provided plenty of space for all on our trip.
It was a super cute place, and is close to everything. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay. They have board games and a cute little room for kids.
Lovely house that worked great for my group of 6! It was close enough to the Port Terminal where getting there only took a few minutes but far enough away where we felt like we were in a quiet neighborhood.
The house was beautifully decorated, spacious, clean, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would definitely book this house again. Thanks!
This home was a perfect match for my family’s weekend getaway. The kids were able to stay upstairs and the adults enjoyed ample room on the first floor. Everything was clean and neat upon our arrival and the home is beautifully decorated. We would not hesitate to book this home again.
There was lots of room for the whole family and the beds were very comfortable.
Muy limpia . Perfecta para mi familia estuvimos muy a gusto 😁😁
The house was beautiful and a great location.
There were a lot of stains on the carpets and it is hard to tell if they were from pets or from people spills so I was a bit nervous to walk bare-footed around the house.
We usually cook quite a bit so we would have liked to have a bit more cooking utensils and options but of course, it is difficult to have everything everyone needs so it is a minor thing.
The grill works well, the central air conditioning was a great way to help relax after the heat of the day. There were a couple of lights burned out in the kitchen when we got there but one call and they were replaced immediately. The service is very good here.
Overall this is a wonderful option for larger groups. We had four adults and two older children and the size and space was perfect for us!
The only thing holding me back from the top rating is the stains and the cooking accessories. We loved our stay here! I highly recommend the house.
We appreciate this input and will implement it as we are able. Thank you!
Loved all of the space this place provided. Plus it was decorated beautifully. Beats a hotel any day!
Upscale furniture, decorating and appliances. Great front porch and covered parking in rear.
The home was very nice and well appointed. It was located in a quiet neighborhood that was centrally located (about 1 mile away from everything). The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable.
Upon arrival there was a large pile of debris in the alley blocking entrance to the carport, which only allowed one vehicle to park there, instead of two. This combined with the back door lock not functioning, made entry into the house on a rainy weekend quite wet. The other issues we experienced were: coffee maker did not work (water sensor was broken), upstairs toilet did not flush well (required frequent plunging), and the upstairs master bedroom ceiling lights did not work (tried changing bulbs).
The city has removed the debris from the alley, and we have taken care of the coffee maker, lights, and keyless entry. The toilet is working as it should. Thank you!
The moment we arrived we were amazed. Beautiful gorgeous home with rose bushes in front and back swing to relax along with patio furniture. Home was provided with the basic dishes towels. Staying here will never make you want to leave we were very sad to say goodbye. We definitely will rent this place again
This is the nicest place I have stayed in Galveston. The house has everything you need for a great stay in Galveston. Quality, comfortable, furniture. Well equipped kitchen. Porch swing, and furniture on porch. Some homes in area are run down. The motion detecting lights helped to make us feel safe.
This is a spacious and beautifully furnished home. The owners have thoughtfully provided everything you need for a delightful getaway. Thanks so much for sharing your home.
Enjoyed our trip to this property with the family.
We loved the house very much in spite of the a.c. being out for 2 days and the dryer not working we made it without a problem.
This house is well furnished and decorated & clean comfortable place to stay
This was a beautiful house inside and out. The yard was very well landscaped with rose bushes along front and back walkway. The exterior of the house was very well maintained with very nice outdoor furniture and a swing on the front porch. The inside is very nicely decorated. The setup was very nice for our family. Our daughter & husband had the bedroom with an attached bathroom since they had a newborn. My other daughter and husband had the upstairs. It was perfect since they have a toddler. She slept in the room with twin beds and loved the oversized stuffed animals. They were able to close the door to the second floor to make sure no little feet went downstairs during the night. We had a few maintenance issues, but for the most part, we were very comfortable staying here and would definitely stay here again.
Lovely home but several issues dirty floors and carpet, draining issues with tubs one had water still in it next morning, wifi issues that I was told to call myself and take care with no info like acct. name or number. Couldn't get washer to work, grill outside was dirty, cover was just thrown on ground looked like it had been there awhile, grease pan looked like it had never been empty or cleaned couldn't even use it. Expected more for the price and such a shame because it is a lovely home.
This is a wonderful property! It was very comfortable for our group of eight including three grandparents, two teens and a small dog. Nice and roomy with plenty of spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. It is also beautifully decorated, which was a nice bonus! It is a great location and close to just about anything you want to do in Galveston! I'd stay here again in a minute.
The Luna retreat in Galveston was perfect for our sisters' getaway. The house was furnished beautifully. We were close to the seawall and all the good restaurants.
The house is beautiful, 10 minutes or less from anything you want to do, loved our family get away to Galveston and staying in this house was a huge factor!
we went to Galveston for my Great nephews 1st birthday and I brought my Mother which is the nephews great grandmother. We had a lovely time, the house was very nice with everything we needed to make our stay complete just like being at home!
My family and I had a wonderful, comfortable stay over Easter Weekend. We will likely be back to this exact home and closly consider Vacasa properties for future vacations.
We are still reminiscing about our Galveston rental. Ample bathrooms and wonderful bedding. The front porch, seriously?! Quality and craftsmanship from the moment you open the front door. Location is so ideal for anything in Galveston. Would definitely stay here again!
Our family trip was great. The house was so nice my family and I loved it. It wasn't to far from anything it had enough rooms for everybody n my kids loved it they loved how the animals was in the room upstairs and how they had room to play outside it was in a nice quiet area in 10mins from the beach love the house in we will be coming back for another family trip
My whole family had a wonderful time exploring Galveston from this really nice rental right in the middle of town. It is roomy with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Lots of natural light with windows all around and really nice furniture and appliances. The sunroom off the kitchen was a bonus as I had to do a bit of work, and the desk there came in handy...it even had a few office supplies in it! The yard is well landscaped...we enjoyed the swing on the front patio and our pup had fun in the backyard. A couple of us were able to enjoy a few morning walks along the mostly quiet streets in the neighborhood. It was fun exploring the area on foot. Several local-favorite restaurants were nearby and served really good food. We really enjoyed the proximity of all the cool places Galveston has to offer. If we're ever back in town, we will definitely book this house again. Thanks for the nice stay!
We were very pleased with this well-appointed, beautifully decorated home. The neighborhood was nice, but this house was the best on the block. It was clean, attractive, and in great condition over all. We appreciated the attractive artwork and objects (such as the giant clam shell), which one usually doesn't find in a home or condo rental. The few issues/questions we had were handled quickly by the local Vacasa manager. We would definitely recommend this to our friends.
The finishout and decorations in this house were amazing. Really like how the house is in a centralized area. Can get to Moody Gardens or downtown within 10 minutes or the beach and Pleasure Pier in 5 minutes. Was worried about safety in area but it seemed surprising safe - just dark at night. The only downside is the 2 bedrooms upstairs share a bathroom and you walk through bathroom to get to the kids room. Thus, definately suggest the upstairs is just for a family and kids.
The Luna Retreat was the absolute perfect place for our Galveston getaway!
Grandparents, adult kids and grandkids all under one beautiful roof. The house was lovely, spacious and very clean. They seem to have thought of everything. We would definitely stay there again!
This is a very nice property with lots of space and very clean with everything you need. The property manager provided really good service and was very responsive from before we arrived and the whole time we were there. It's very accessible to shops, the seawall and attractions. It's very homely and excellent if you bring your children. Would definitely stay there again!
I have rented homes in Galveston for many years and by far this is the best location and home available. I was very pleased with the layout, cleanliness, and furnishings of this home. Beyond my expectations. I will be booking this home again very soon.
