Looking forward to having you down here on the Island!
I have a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Historical Island Cottage that you can rent out entirely to yourselves. I can meet you to check you in and show you around and then I will be staying less than 30 mins away if you have any questions or need anything at all during your vacation.
The entire home is decorated in a tropical island theme and is extremely welcoming! The Master suite has a large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and double headed shower! One of the guest rooms has a queen bed and is decorated in a palm theme while the other room has a queen size wooden futon with a very thick and comfortable mattress. You have use of the whole home, large back deck with 4 burner propane BBQ, front porch and the rest of the house. Feel free to use the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself.
I'm only about 1 mile from the beach for surfing, tanning, swimming and fun in the sun! Plus I'm 2.5 miles from the historic "down town" Strand area. Also the house is less than 4 miles from multiple harbors and boat ramps if you want to sail on Galveston Bay! Stay at my house to make your Galveston Island vacation affordable. Please contact me with any questions you may have!
Also there is a good possibility that my two dogs will still be at the house during that time as I will be living on a boat while you are enjoying your stay at Island Cottage. They are super friendly and stay in the kitchen with a doggie door to the laundry room and back yard. Also if you needed to use the kitchen and didn’t want them around during that time you could always put them outside and shut the doggie door for a short while. They stay in the kitchen and the back door from the kitchen is connect to the outside. If you are a dog friendly family this would work great, although if you are not pet friendly this may not be the right option for you even though the dogs will not be all over the home. Thanks for looking through my listing. Check out my pictures and my Guidebook on my other page, and please contact me with any questions you may have!
FYI - There is a 6% State Hotel Tax and a 9% City Hotel Tax that every vacation rental in the state of Texas must pay with any booking that is less than 30 days. These taxes are not included in the quote.
Jeanna's Island Cottage was very comfortable and spacious. We loved the tropical decor and our family had plenty of room inside and outside. It is well located to the beach and attractions of Galveston. We felt more like locals than tourists staying in a hotel/motel. This was great value, staying in a lovely home with all the great amenitiesi!
Jeanna was a terrific hostess, very flexible and quick to respond to our questions and needs. We loved her recommendations and tips on things to do, places to go, etc. When we return to Galveston, Jeanna's Island Cottage will be our first choice of places to stay.
Jeanna was excellent! She was so attentive and her house was beautiful. If I ever had any questions or concerns she would be there to reply immediately. She had great tips on places to visit in Galveston, and her home was near everything! I would recommend this home to anyone, and me and my friends have nothing but great things to say about our host and stay. We also miss Cookie and Ginger! They were so sweet and adorable. Thank you Jeanna for making our Spring Break 2013 so memorable! I will definitely be back.
We had a great time staying at Jeanna's Island Cottage! We had 6 big guys in our group and there was plenty of room for all of us. Jeanna was a very gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed and then some. She was easy to talk to and had some great ideas for things to do while we were there. The house was clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. It was also close to the Seawall and the Strand, which was convenient for Mardi Gras weekend. We would definitely come back!
Jeanna was very kind and completely open to any question you may have. We had a great stay, the house was very clean and comfortable, and would recommend to anybody looking for a good getaway on the island.
Jeanna is an amazing host, she was very helpful and always responded to any questions quickly. My stay with my family over the weekend could not have gone any better than it had because Jeanna provides the "home away from home" atmosphere! Other than the house being perfect, I made two new best friends Ginger and Cookie who are the sweetest girls I have ever met who also added the secure, and home like feel!
This weekend for my family and I was all about relaxing and getting together to plan our future family reunion, telling stories, playing games and creating new memories, thank you so much Jeanna for making that possible and sharing your home with us! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!
We live near Houston but this is the very first time that we really enjoy Galveston. The time we spent on Island Cottage was one of the most peacefull and relaxing for our entire family. Jeanna was always available for any question that we might have, she was helpful and hospitable. We really had a good time at Jeanna's place, is a very cozy place, well located and with a beach environment that makes you fell on vacation mood. We have three children aged 9, 7 and 3 and let me tell you that we were very comfortable, and relaxed. We have no pets back in home, so we spend all weekend enjoying Cookie and Ginger, we loved them. We will recommend this place to all of our friends and family.
Our stay at Jeanna's was wonderful, the cottage very comfortable and the host always a call away of whatever we needed. Thanks a lot Jeanna for letting us stay at your home and my regards to the doggy ladies that gave us a lovely company.
Jeanna is THE BEST!!! She was a wonderful host and really worked to make our stay enjoyable. She was available to answer any questions and close by if we had needed her. Her home was clean, comfortable and very cozy. It is centrally located and a quick drive to the beach and all of the island's attractions. Her rates are very reasonable and really a great value. It's so nice to have a full kitchen and a laundry room at your disposal. We made a trip to the grocery store and ate at least one meal at the house every day. This allowed us to save some money so when we went out we could enjoy some very nice local eateries. We loved the dogs!! They are so sweet and very well behaved. It was no trouble feeding, ect... We will miss them. My only complaint is that we had to leave. I would definitely come back to the island cottage. Thanks, Jeanna
The house was absolutely beautiful! Jeanna was so wonderful and helpful with any and all questions that we had, without hesitation. There was more than enough space and was the best spot for our outdoor barbeque. This was by far the best time I have ever had in Galveston, and the location had a lot to do with it. Thank you so much again! I recommend this house for everyone. It is well worth the money and more!! Oh and the dogs are totally sweet, well behaved and a great addition to our weekend.
What an awesome house! Jenna was great and had a book full of recommendations for food,drinks,etc. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Galveston. Highly recommend!
