The cute "Yellow Gator" cottage with amazing views is in Galveston's Sea Isle community. It's a 2 bedroom that sleeps 6 (with queen sleeper sofa). The house with boat dock and hot/cold outdoor shower is just 100 meters from West Galveston Bay, easily accessed by the canal. Easy 1000 meters walk/drive to the beach. Fishing is fantastic in this area even from the dock. 25 minute drive to city of Galveston. The neighborhood has a full service marina, restaurant and bar.
“This home was everything we needed for a wonderful Father’s Day weekend. We were able to fish right from the backyard and also drop in our kayaks and paddle the canal with leisure. The beach access was less than a 5 minute drive away which was perfect to go boogie board and then come home for a quick lunch and a long nap. The evenings were for night fishing thanks to the underwater light and the boat dock. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Enjoy your morning coffee off the back deck and watch the amazing sunset from the front deck, this vacation home has it all! Thank you Doug and Karen for your wonderful hospitality, my family and I appreciate you both.”
Our cottage built in 1890 is located in the Central District of the island in a colorful neighborhood just off Broadway. We are only One Mile from the Beach, Pleasure Pier, The Strand District or Cruise Ship parking terminals. Enjoy plentiful breezes on the front porch or relax on the deck out back. The house can sleep eight people and there is ONE bathroom (off a bedroom) with a clawfoot tub and shower. We also have a full kitchen. We are your ideal night-before-a-cruise location!
“This has to be one of my favorite places to stay in Galveston. We stayed there for the first time in June. The owners have gone above and beyond into making this truly feel like a home for all of their guests. The house is so well maintained and absolutely spotless. They have so many thoughtful amenities provided throughout the house if you have a young one ( a pack n play with sheets, baby gates, cords are covered), toiletries, a stocked kitchen if you want to stay in and cook, etc. The beds are comfortable and we all slept very well. And this place is less than a mile to the beach. The house is of course in an older neighborhood, but it is residential and families live next door- I did feel safe however. I cannot say enough good things about the house and the hosts. Very responsive and thoughtful. I hope to come back multiple times in the future. Thanks, Amy!”

“We had such a wonderful time at The Palapa House. Just as everyone said in the reviews...the outside is outstanding! We pretty much lived outside...having all meals out there. The private pool and palapa really are the “main feature” and are adorable. Great fun signs, pool toys, grill, fire pit, outside bathroom, lots of room to lounge around. The kitchen was set up really nicely ~ double oven 😃 Having a window unit AC in the kitchen would have been a dream. The box fan helps, but still seemed warm in the kitchen most of the time. The Master Bedroom was comfy and really nicely cooled with a window AC and oscillating fan bedside. We took both of our dogs...LOVE that they are dog friendly! Chloe and Zander had a WONDERFUL time! We are already looking forward to returning in September!”
