With a morning coffee or evening nightcap, begin and end your days perched on the front porch. Lounge in the rocking chairs and admire the charming historical area you're immersed in while staying at this adorable vacation rental cottage!


Your location is perfect for a short walk to the Strand Historic District, featuring Victorian-era buildings now housing restaurants, antique stores, and eclectic shops. Spend a day at Moody Gardens, just 7 miles from the property, to discover numerous attractions including an aquarium, zoo, zip line, and museums all housed in glass pyramids.

While situated in the East End Historical District, you can discover extraordinary architectural gems nearby such Bishop's Palace and Moody Mansion. Just a 5-minute walk from the cottage, Bishop's Palace is a remarkable Victorian-style house also known as Gresham's Castle, offering nearly 20,000 square feet of ornate decor, lavish furnishings, and eclectic designs that you'll love exploring. The Romanesque Moody Mansion is just over 1 mile away and definitely worth a visit as well.

Dine out at a few local favorites during your stay to get the full Galveston experience. Walk 0.3 mile to The Original Mexican Cafe for an authentic Tex-Mex feast in a historic building.
