About Irma Kusuma

Our Tree House Cottage is a wedding gift that we gave each other before our wedding. We got engaged in Galveston, so it is just fitting that we own a piece of the island. We loves restoring old cottages, and because we own a natural stone fabrication company, we have the resources to bring this 1920s cottage back to life.

All of the colors were selected to match our wedding color which is brown, olive green and white.

The purpose of the house is to decompress you. And the minute you walked into the house you will know what I mean by that.

Enjoy, and relax.

Irma Kusuma purchased this house in 2007

Why Irma Kusuma chose Gulf Coast

We love the ocean and we love the history of the town. Galveston offers something for everyone.

What makes this house unique

Our property is a well located property. Only 5 minutes walk to the ocean and close proximity to many great restaurant in Galveston. Also, we have a fun loft bed with tons of books and magazine to read. So much fun.

House was great, would stay again.

  • 4 of 5

The Jacuzzi tub is awesome, the house is beautifully decorated. We hated to leave. It's an older house, so the decking could do with some repair, and the front banister is very shakey. Also, there is no grass in the backyard and cactus, so we had to take our dogs out front in the grass to potty. And the round rungs on the loft ladder hurt your feet, perhaps flat ones would be more comfortable. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this tree house cottage. It's very cute and has a lot of character. It's in an older neighborhood and is in a quiet location. My daughter loved the loft living!! It's a great home and we will stay there again.

There's no hair dryer.... so make sure to pack yours. Other than that, we had everything we needed. Enjoy your tree house cottage stay!!

For ppl who like to chill relax & let go for a few days

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly cherished my time @ casa Galveston. So many amenities from the loft beds upstairs to the outdoor shower to beach proximity & what an awesome balcony for yoga hammocks ppl & sky watching. The only thing better than the home are the hosts. Aren't enough words or time to delineate their attributes & generosity & eclecticism here.

Such potential............but beware

  • 1 of 5

We have rented from VRBO many times and in many places, so we've seen a wide variety of rentals. It is important that renters give accurate reviews so the rest of us have the best information possible to help make our rental choices. The Tree House Cottage has great potential but it seems to have been neglected in its maintenance and cleaning for some time. The kitchen and bathroom do have very nice granite, marble, and tile, but that does not make up for the dirty kitchen cabinets and drawers. The inside of the cabinets and drawers had likely not been seriously cleaned in some time. There were poorly washed dishes in the cabinets, old spice jars, a nearly empty syrup bottle, and other assorted old condiments in the corner cabinet on the lazy-Susan. We didn't even put our groceries away, leaving them neatly stacked on the big countertop because of the conditions. The refrigerator too had old mayonnaise, mustard, and other items left in the door shelves. The den had 2 loveseats to sit on to watch tv, but one was badly damaged with an area of broken springs making to very uncomfortable to sit on. The throw pillows had stains on them, so I used pillow cases to cover them so they would feel clean enough to use. As we were leaving, I did what most rentals ask a renter to do, which is to strip the sheets off the bed and leave them stacked with the dirty towels for the cleaning crew. To my dismay the sheets were directly on a stained mattress with no mattress cover or pad as a protector. Had we known that earlier, we would have not slept on it and not stayed in the house. The other issues we discovered we addressed as best we could or worked around it, but the uncovered, old mattress was simply unsanitary. The house is cute, has cute decorations, but needs a thorough cleaning, replacement of the broken down couch, and a new mattress that is sealed in a mattress cover with a mattress pad that is washed after each rental along with the sheets. And lastly, there were no instructions on what each of the 4-5 remotes controlled, what the wifi password was, and the trick of how to re-lock the front door lock box. And if running the dishwasher or washer so depleted the hot water heater that you could not take a hot shower for 5-6 hours, that too should have been mentioned. It's a shame this little house has been so neglected because it is in a good neighborhood, just 3 blocks from the beach, and could be a wonderful place to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Pam and Joe, We used a new cleaning crew this past two months and we have been receiving stellar reviews on the cleanliness of the house. They also just did a deep cleaned on the kitchen cabinets and rewashed all the plates. We do use the house for time to time and I am an avid cook, so I left some spices and staples in the cabinets. Furthermore, last month we purchased new pillows for the master bedroom. We are also available if you have any questions and we sent you the wifi password immediately after you text us. We believe that your review is rather unfair as you never stated any of these concerns to us during your stay. Nevertheless, we will take a note and improve our property in the near future. We thank you for your stay.
