Exquisitely-Styled Cottage in Midtown Galveston Island - Dogs Welcome

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!

Place your reservation today, and get ready for a Galveston beach getaway you won't soon forget!

This home has everything you need for your family gathering or friends. Nice spacious rooms and seating for all. Location is close drive to the beach and the Strand for shopping! Definitely will stay here again if we travel to Galveston again! Thank you!
Jana B. Jul 2022
Great house! We all loved it !
Janet E. Jun 2022
Size was good for # of people. Nicely decorated
ML D. Apr 2022
This was a beautifully decorated and well appointed home that had everything we needed for our work-play stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals and snacks, while the house was centrally located enough that we were able to venture out to indulge in some of the coastal cuisine without much traffic or fuss.
Terry L. Apr 2022
Was a Great House with Quality Decor.
Connie P. Mar 2022
These 4 friends all needed personal space with community space and this house fit the bill perfectly. Well-appointed and provisioned.
Bryce G. Dec 2021
This is a beautiful home, great set up, very nice amenities. Centrally located on the island, I would highly recommend for a nice family getaway
Gerald B. Nov 2021
This rental was more then imagined. It is a great layout and location. Close to the event and nice quiet neighborhood
Allison H. Jun 2021
Great place with a good layout in a quiet neighborhood. Communication was good throughout our booking and stay. We had one issue with trash during out stay that was promptly handled after reaching out to the management company. We will be back!!!
Karen S. Jun 2021
The house was really nice. Sleeping arrangements were good, kitchen was well appointed. Location was about 10-15 minutes from everything. Plenty of parking.

One note - beds are very tall. If you are traveling with someone who is elderly, injured or has a disability, it's pretty tough. The twin beds are low/normal height but they are upstairs. So if guests can't make the stairs it is a challenge. We worked around it with an air mattress, but is good to know if that's important to you.

Otherwise - delighted!
Erika A. May 2021
The house was soooooo nice! My family and I absolutely adored it. Only issue is that there are lots of ants. Other than that everything was perfect.
Manager response:
Hi, Erika! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! The home gets sprayed quarterly for pests, and we have put ant traps in the house. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Sherry W. May 2021
The house was very cute and comfortable.
Anne M. Jun 2020
I loved the layout of this cozy home. We were only there for 2 nights. It’s really convenient and out of the Chaos of the seawall. The front porch was amazing! The only thing that was awesome was the gnats. There were a bunch of those nasty little things. Which that is a problem that can be corrected very easily. Overall it was a great getaway!
Tana B. May 2020
Nice house, comfortable and clean. The owners did not answer any of my messages, I had several questions and they did not respond once. It’s a lot further from the beach than I thought (I wanted to be close enough to walk). Other than terrible customer service, we enjoyed the house.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Tana. We are glad you enjoyed this home and apologize for any trouble you experienced reaching us. We encourage guests to reach out to our property management team directly via the contact information provided in check-in instructions, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Valeria C. May 2020
Everything was perfect. We hope to be back soon
Sandra E. Mar 2020

The house was outstanding!
Stuart K. Jan 2020
The home is super nice and the decor is beautiful. Very clean and we felt safe in the neighborhood. Would 100% stay here again and recommend this rental to anyone who asks about lodging in Galveston.
Sinda L G. Jan 2020
I loved the way the home was arranged with two bedrooms and bathes on ground level , king bed up as well as two twins. Bed were super comfy. Everything was really clea. The home felt like it had just been refurbed with great decorations. Cinda L. G.
Jamie S. Dec 2019
This was a beautiful home in a beautiful and quiet street. The house is perfect for multiple generation or extended family get away. Great location. One mile run/walk to the sea wall.
Susan R. Dec 2019
The home was lovely; nicely decorated. Very clean. I would rent this home again. Tv’s upstairs were not in working order.

Shirley R. Oct 2019
Ashley Y. Sep 2019
We had fun.
Victoria S. Sep 2019
It just feels warm and homey.
Isela M. Aug 2019
This was our first time staying at a rental house. The house overall seemed very clean but I doubt they wash the bed linens because there was hair on the pillows and sheets and other questionable stains. Other than that we did enjoy our stay there and the area was quiet. My older children also loved the home!
Manager response:
We're glad you enjoyed your stay! We wash our linens before every reservation, but we will pass along your feedback to our local team to ensure that the linens are being cleaned to our own high standards. We hope to host you again!
Amanda P. Aug 2019
Very nice house in a quiet neighborhood. Nice patio area for relaxing. Close drive to beach and restaurants. Convenient parking. Beautiful decor. All the amenities you need. Kids loved their room with giant Safari animals. Would rent again!
Matt M. Jul 2019
Conveniently located, lovely amenities, and incredibly comfortable beds. Made for a very nice family vacation.

Beautiful home, enjoyed the stay.
Melissa D. Apr 2019
Well appointed home very inviting and cozy.
Brenda G. Mar 2019
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!
Witney H. Nov 2018
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.
Cindy S. Nov 2018
We truly enjoyed our stay at this great home.
All the rooms provided plenty of space for all on our trip.
Kim L. Oct 2018
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.
Darlene G. Oct 2018
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.
Lexi R. Sep 2018
The house was beautifully decorated, spacious, clean, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would definitely book this house again. Thanks!
Marian M. Aug 2018
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.
Zenon G. Aug 2018
There was lots of room for the whole family and the beds were very comfortable.
MARIBEL H. Aug 2018
Muy limpia . Perfecta para mi familia estuvimos muy a gusto 😁😁
Steven S. Jul 2018
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.
Manager response:
We appreciate this input and will implement it as we are able. Thank you!
Shanna C. May 2018
Loved all of the space this place provided. Plus it was decorated beautifully. Beats a hotel any day!
Paula R. May 2018
Upscale furniture, decorating and appliances. Great front porch and covered parking in rear.
Gary F. Apr 2018
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).
Manager response:
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!
Brandi Y. Mar 2018
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
Paula R. Feb 2018
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.
Kristne W. Jan 2018
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.
Barry H. Jan 2018
Awesome home
Laurie H. Dec 2017
Enjoyed our trip to this property with the family.
Linda M. Nov 2017
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.
Gonzalo P. Nov 2017
This house is well furnished and decorated & clean comfortable place to stay
Dianna M. Jul 2017
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.
Darlene L. Jul 2017
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.
Lezlie H. Jul 2017
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.
Beverly N. Jun 2017
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.
Perry Z. Jun 2017
Enjoy the house, we did!
Maddie W. May 2017
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!
Penny M. Apr 2017
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!
Sean J. Apr 2017
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.
Matt R. Apr 2017
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!
Lynepper W. Mar 2017
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
Lilly L. Mar 2017
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 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!
Laura B. Mar 2017
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.
Jana R. Mar 2017
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.
Maegan W. Jan 2017
The Luna Retreat was the absolute perfect place for our Galveston getaway!
Christine T. Jan 2017
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!
Stephen C. Nov 2016
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!
Ian M. Nov 2016
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.
