Why Rosa Morgan chose San Jacinto
As a child visiting Galveston on summer vacations I fell in love with the beach and the architectural gems of the city. Now I'm the proud owner of my own Victorian house and love discovering what this great city has to offer.

Wonderful cottage walking distance to the beach
Quaint cottage close to the beach with lots of privacy.
We loved it and will definitely stay again
The cottage was clean and comfortable. Met all my expectations. Great location. Easy in and out. I look forward to going back.
Quaint and clean
We really enjoyed our stay at this cute and quaint cottage just 3 blocks from the Seawall in Galveston. It was the perfect get-away for the weekend and close to everything. The owner was very nice and checked in with me a couple of times to make sure we had everything we needed. The courtyard in the back of the cottage was very nice and peaceful and lots of butterflies to look at.
We hope to be back soon.
Charming, roomy space
We stayed at the cottage which was conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood. Clear instructions were given in advance which made check in / out a breeze. The cottage was clean with all the necessities and much roomier than a hotel room. We had a very pleasant stay.
The property was clean and the area was quite.
Property was central to all areas that we visited. I was concerned that there was no smoke alarm, or keyless deadbolt on door. We could not get local t v stations however there were plenty of movies made available to us. Property was clean.
I'm very sorry that you found some parts of your stay to be wanting. There is a keyless deadbolt on the door so I'm not sure what you were meaning by your remark. I apologize that there were no local TV channels. The cable TV was malfunctioning at the time of your stay and I am now getting it fixed. I was out of the country at the time of your stay but I understand my caretaker did his best to help you and correct the problem.
Quaint and peaceful
Mermaid Cottage is wonderful. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and great location near beach and restaurants. The only small negative is the step down from the entry/kitchenette to the living area. It tripped me up a couple times.
Galveston has something for everyone and Mermaid Cottage is minutes from it all: 3 Blocks to Beach and 6 Blocks to thrilling rides at the Pleasure Pier. 5 minute drive to the Historical Strand, Victorian buildings converted to stores, unique restaurants and museums. Fourteenth street has lots of wonderful restaurants including Mosquito Cafe. For history buffs, visit the 1892 Bishop's Palace, 1859 Ashton Villa, 1877 Tall sailing ship Elissa, Moody Mansion, and Pier 21 Theater to see how the 1900 Storm nearly destroyed Galveston.
