Charming beach-chic cottage with screened porch - blocks from seawall

A delightful Galveston stay awaits your crew at this charming upscale 2BR rear cottage garage apartment. Located a couple of blocks from the seawall, each room in this spacious two-story retreat is rich with turquoise and coral details and hardwood floors.

Downstairs, a screened sitting area lets the Gulf breeze in while you relax on a comfy sectional and enjoy a film on the TV. The balcony off the living room offers seating for two and lots of sunshine.

Arrive at Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier within a 7-minute stroll -- a stretch of Seawall beaches begins just adjacent. BLVD Seafood is a local favorite for crab cake sliders and other innovative dishes, just 2 blocks away.


Hardwood floors stretch throughout your spacious beach-chic cottage. In the living room, relax on a plush sofa bed or armchair while your favorite shows play on the 50-inch TV. A gas fireplace sets the mood on cool winter nights, and the balcony offers the perfect two-person perch for morning coffee or tea. A relaxing Gulf-inspired color palette features in each room, and upscale tropical decor adds an eclectic touch.

A custom octopus light fixture illuminates the high-end kitchen, detailed with a stainless steel side-by-side fridge, lots of granite counter space, and a four-person breakfast bar. The dining area seats six below a lovely chandelier.

Downstairs, a screened sitting area makes an inviting spot for movie nights on the 50-inch TV. A large wicker sectional offers ample seating, and a dining table seats six.

Both bedrooms are furnished with queen beds and 50-inch TVs. The shared en-suite bath has a spacious double sink vanity, water closet, and an intricately tiled walk-in shower. Extras at the home include a washer/dryer, and garage parking for two cars. Complimentary WiFi is provided.


Your posh beach cottage is just few blocks from the beach and the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier — take a spin on the infamous Iron Shark roller coaster followed by a delicious loaded funnel cake.

When it comes to seafood, BLVD, Fish Tales, and Miller's Seawall Grill are three neighborhood favorites within 6 blocks of your door. Stop in at ShyKatz 1 mile away to stock up on sandwiches for the beach.

Seeking indoor activities for the whole family? Take a step back in time with visits to the historic Moody Mansion and 1892 Bishop's Palace — incredible art and architecture await at both landmarks within 1 mile of your door.
