Although small, this house has plenty of sleeping and seating arrangements for large groups. It is fully equipped with a kitchen if you’re not into eating out for every meal. Location is perfect as it is within walking distance to the beach, pleasure pier and bar/restaurants. Only negatives would be washer/dryer could be updated and interior door knobs could be replaced.
Terri R. Dec 2018
This house is within walking distance to the beach. Very convenient. Relatively recent renovations to the home. Some improvements could still be done. Thank you for sharing this with others.
Tara T. Nov 2018
I really enjoyed my stay. The heater didn’t work and made a Smokey smell so we turned it off. It was cold most the time. However, overall it was a good experience.
Bryan R. Sep 2018
Had a great time. House is in great condition and feels really cozy. 2 blocks from the beach. Highly recommend.
Nada B. Sep 2018
The house was cute and we enjoyed our stay. The buckbed room did not have vents and we had to buy a fan to get air moving in the room. There were no outlets to plug in phones or the fan. All in all the house was ok.
Raymond G. Aug 2018
The house was awesome, AC worked great when cooling off after along day at the beach and pier. It was updated for being an old house, I will book again!
Linda H. Aug 2018
This property was located within walking distance to a variety of places for dining, the beach & entertainment. The interior was updated with a beach vibe.
John F. Jul 2018
The good. Quiet, lots of beds, plenty of towels, extra pillows and blankets, free wi-fi, updated kitchen. The not so good. Smell from washer drain, no handles on kitchen drawers or cabinets make it hard to open, garbage can was full and smelled horrible made it hard to sit on the front porch, a broom would be nice to sweep up sand from the beach.
Manager response:
Our most sincere apologies for these inconveniences. The dishwasher was drained before check in when housekeeping realized it was in need of repair. Maintenance has been informed to rectify immediately. The trash is backed up on account of the holiday, but we will be sure it is addressed as well. We have supplied a broom. We greatly appreciate this guest taking the time to share with us where we can improve.
Lay C. Jul 2018
The house was clean and well organized, it was close to the beach walking distance. We had a great stay, thank you to the owner for sharing the house.

The house was great! Great location to the beach, and nice on the inside. Beds were comfortable, very clean.
Jeremy N. May 2018
The bed was very comfortable, house was clean and near the beach. Highly recommended!
Dorothy B. Apr 2018
Loved the furnishings! Rarely do you have such comfortable beds, couches and bedding. A very beautiful cozy place right near the beach and walking distance to the hot spots. I hope to be back again someday.
Kay M. Mar 2018
So happy we found this place available at the last minute. Perfect location, friendly neighbors, adorable decor, clean home away from home. Will definitely consider this place on our next trip to Galveston.
Michael V. Nov 2017
We were very pleased with the house. The location is great!! The only issue we would bring to the owner's attention was the sewer smell. The smell seemed to be coming from the washing machine area. The smell would come and go but when there it was very unpleasant. Would rent there again.
Manager response:
We apologize for the unpleasant smell this guest experienced. The washing machine is scheduled for inspection to see what could be causing the smell. Thank you!
Doug D. Oct 2017
This is a cute little house and just a 2 block walk to the beach, which is why we chose it.
Sonia E M. Oct 2017
this property was super cute, at first when we arrived we were kinda iffy about it but when we went inside it blew our minds. everything is super close, literally like 2 minutes to get to the beach! the washer was kinda confusing but we figured it out, there’s enough space for more than 6 people honestly! 10/10 recommend, will be staying here again! (:
Anna Marie W. Aug 2017
This home was clean, super cute, and in a great location close to the beach! The beds were comfortable and the area quiet. We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely stay again!
Megan J. Jul 2017
House was beautifully remodeled, great proximity to the beach (10 minute walk) even lugging all your families beach gear. Wonderful place and time.
Jeannette J. Jul 2017
Clean, easy access to entire Island. Close to seawall but not to close so quiet at night. Perfect for a large family and great for kids. Remodel was nice. Would stay there again.
Billie Dee J. Jul 2017
Turquoise Cove is an adorable little house with everything you need for a getaway. The location is perfect for the beach and dining out.
Jessica S. Jul 2017
I was not impressed. The interior doors didn't shut at all. There was no bicycle or surf board like the discription said there would be. The grill is on the side of the house in a very small walkway, which gives you no room to use it! The house also smells like sewer especially in the 2nd bedroom. The bunk beds looked like they were about to fall apart at any minute. Only 1 tv worked in the whole house and the wifi didn't work the entire time we were there. The other bedroom was nice and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was adequate and roomy especially the shower! The kitchen was great and had what we needed! That was the best part of the entire house!
Manager response:
We apologize if our guest was disappointed with their accommodations. The property manager inspected the items mentioned and feels there is plenty of room for grilling, was unable to discover any unpleasant odors, and found the bunk beds to be secure. We hope to have another chance to impress.
Andrew S. Jun 2017
The house was just what we were looking. It had only a few steps for my mother in law and her bad knees. It was close to beach we could leave our car and walk and not mess with the parking on the seawall. The permit was great but we never used it, just walked. Nice and clean, well stocked and away from the seawall noise was wonderful.
Carol D. Jun 2017
Booking our reservation was so easy. The cottage was exactly as it was pictured, very clean and well equipped. Staff was very helpful when we had questions or issures.
Laura M. Jun 2017
We were impressed with the decor and what was done with the space. I do know if it would have been multiple families, the doors not staying closed/latching would be an issue. Just a lot of little things that could be repaired that would make a good impression. The management company was nice and very helpful, no complaints there. Maybe just bring your own fresh sheets..
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not enjoy the linens provided at this home. We will work with housekeeping on making sure the sheets placed on the beds are ready and in good condition.
Allison A. Jun 2017
Sorry for the bad review but it was just one thing after the other. A trip we will never forget! Super cute decorating, simple and sweet AC! Works like a champ! But that's about it!
Salena L. Jun 2017
The house is a 3 minute walk from the beach and a $5 Uber ride from the strand! The home was beautifully decorated and the master bedroom has a king. We loved this rental for a girls trip because the rooms are adjoining and very cozy!
Dustin T. May 2017
The parking wasn't very convenient. There aren't any spices or much to help cook with. There were pans and grilling utinsels so that was good but there was not any Tupperware. We did see a few bugs but after we contacted vacasa I am confident they are addressing the problem. Overall the stay was great!
Holly T. May 2017
It is as quaint as its pictures and was a great refuge after long fun hot days on Galveston beach. We utilized the kitchen for at home meals. TV and Internet were top notch for good downtime and the street was quiet. We all had a comfy bed and our dogs had a run along side the house which was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay!
Gena B. Apr 2017
Home was great. Customers service from vacasa was terrible. I will never rent from this company again.
Scott W. Apr 2017
The house was in a perfect location; walking distance to the beach, pleasure pier, restaurants, and of course some beach bars. There was plenty of space for the five of us and our two dogs. The furnishings were up to date and the place was immaculately clean! Dominic (the local manager) is incredibly helpful and will answer calls in a timely manner with respect and charisma. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone who wants a getaway in Galveston. The best rental experience I have ever had.
Jennifer M. Feb 2017
My friend and I traveled to Galveston with our sons for a gymnastics meet. We decided to rent a house instead of staying at a hotel. After hours of searching, we found this cozy cottage and decided it was pretty much perfect for our short stay. We arrived late, but had no problems finding or entering the home. The furnishings and decor are comfortable new and clean - we felt as if we were the first visitors. The location was just about perfect- two blocks from the beach and an easy drive to Moody Gardens and the Strand.
Jenifer V. Feb 2017
This beautiful completely remodeled cottage was the best spot we have rented for Mardi Gras ever! The kids loved the coastal rustic decor and feel, said it felt like Chip and Joann remodeled it :) It is located in a great area within walking distance of all the best areas on the Seawall, we walked to Pleasure Pier, walked the beach for seashells, and then had dinner at the Spot all within a 3-5 minute walk from this home. It was right there in the live action of Mardi Gras for the Seawall parades. Perfect front porch for a peaceful evening cocktail. The coziness of this cottage felt like home and was the perfect location for our family to enjoy a great weekend. Our property manager Dominic was the best, he called to confirm our arrival prior to check-in and he continued to make sure we had towels and everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We will definitely rent this home again!
