Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Jacuzzi/Hot Tub · Barbecue · Swimming pool

This family-friendly cottage rental is situated in an upscale resort community in Galveston, Texas. It is centrally located between the Gulf of Mexico and West Bay, on Galveston Island in the heart of the state's Gulf Coast. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the cottage can accommodate up to eight guests.

In the master bedroom, couples can wake up each morning on a king-size bed to a gorgeous sunrise over the water and palm trees outside their window. They can watch the news on a TV, or step outside on the private balcony with a fresh cup of coffee. The master bedroom includes a full ensuite bathroom with a toilet, a double vanity, a Jacuzzi bathtub, and a glass-enclosed, walk-in shower. In the second bedroom, parents can watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, and sleep on the queen-size bed while their baby sleeps in the crib right next to them. Children can sleep on a pair of twin-size beds in the third bedroom. The second and third bedrooms share a full bathroom with a toilet, a sink, and a bathtub and shower combination. The sofa in the living room can be pulled into a double bed to sleep any additional guests.

Every bed comes with soft, luxury linens. All three bedrooms include an oversized dresser and a closet for extra storage space. Both bathrooms provide plush white towels and a set of toiletries. The crib is not furnished, so parents will need to bring their own sheets for the baby.

After a long day of swimming in the Gulf or riding roller coasters at amusement parks, guests can gather in the living room to relax on the nice, comfortable furniture and watch a movie or game on the TV. The living room provides direct access to the covered back deck, where guests can lounge or eat meals outside while enjoying the spectacular views of the Gulf Coast.

The living room opens up to the fully-equipped kitchen and dining area. The dining table can seat four guests, with additional seating for two at the breakfast bar. The kitchen comes with a fridge, a microwave, a dishwasher, a coffeemaker, and a stove and oven. Dishes and cooking utensils are provided.

For guests' convenience, there is a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer. Guests are free to use a complimentary set of wakeboards, lazy river tubes, and beach cruisers during their stay. Other amenities include heating and air conditioning, Wi-Fi, cable and satellite, ceiling fans, and an elevator.

If guests want some relief from the hot Texas sun, they can cool off in the shaded space beneath the cottage. They can take a nap in the hammock, cook a delicious Texan BBQ on the grill, or eat meals and sip cocktails around the picnic table. Guests can walk down to the community's private beach club, where they can swim in two outdoor pools or float down a lazy river. The club also features a restaurant, a playground, and a fitness center. From the club, guests will have direct access to the beach, making it easy to spend the whole day swimming and surfing in the Gulf of Mexico. Read More
