Surf Cottage,2 blocks from beach!

House - Entire home/apt · Avenue, Galveston, TX 77550, United States

The Space

Darling one bedroom cottage on quiet street one block from Poterro Beach on the east end of the island. Full kitchen & bath. Hot & cold outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach!
Pet Friendly!!! Clawfoot bathtub in bathroom!

We're one block from Poterro Beach on the less crowded East End of the island. Just over 1 mile to the Pleasure Pier, convenient to boat docks, the Bolivar Ferry, restaurants and The Strand. I've had families of 7 stay in the Surf Cottage but 2 of them were babies. I would say it's very comfortable for small families, a couple of couples, a couple looking for a get-away off the beaten path, or a single person looking to relax, read, write, surf or do whatever!

Beach, Bar-b-que pit, small outdoor seating area where smoking is allowed. Outdoor shower in the shared area, which is soon to be a covered shared outdoor area!

My husband and I live in the house next door, so we are available for any issues that might arise. We keep to ourselves, unless you need something. We feel that you have rented the house, and we want it to feel like yours!

The neighbors, what few there are are friendly. There's a few properties on our street that are mostly occupied only on the week-ends and holidays. What I love most about our neighborhood is the location so very close to the beach! I walk my dog down there almost every morning!!

Public Transport does not really exist on this end of the island! Now down on the Seawall (one block away) they rent pedal surreys and bicycles.

  • We had a great stay at the Surf Cottage. The location is close to places we wanted to visit. The Surf Cottage has everything we needed for a get away with our son. We cooked breakfast every morning so we could take our time to start the day. All essential items were available in the kitchen.
    Clara is a fantastic host. She responded my inquiry in timely manner. Our son had an evening flight arriving Houston, she was very accommodating on the check in time.
    We will definitely stay at the Surf Cottage again!

  • Clara was very sweet, funny and quick to reply to any questions. My husband and I made a last minute decision to go to Galveston for Dickens on the Strand so we had to bring our dogs and chose this cottage based on the fact that Clara allowed dogs, which was awesome! The cottage was cute and cozy and perfect for the two of us and our four legged kids. There are a lot of dogs on the street but everyone went inside for the night so we didn't have any trouble sleeping. It is located less than 2 miles from The Strand which was super convenient. We would rent this cottage again!

Nice woman, great sense of humor, foodie, friendly. Has male counterpart, we are both in our 50's. We live in another house on the same property, and we stay out of your way unless you need us for something. We don't mind you having parties, especially since we have an outdoor grill, but drunken brawls are not allowed! ;-D Favorite movies range from Casablanca to Blade Runner.
