Rosa Morgan purchased this cottage in 2011

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Mermaid Cottage is just a 5 minute walk from the beach.

Private courtyard to relax in.

Cute interior with art and antiques

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Mermaid Cottage! It was quite and peaceful, and we had everything we needed. Easy walk to the seawall, and easy to catch the trolley to go elsewhere. Would highly recommend!

Cozy and private

  • 5 of 5

I needed a quiet place to focus on my writing for a few days, and the Mermaid Cottage was the ideal spot! It was clean, comfortable, and furnished with everything I needed, and Rosa checked in unobtrusively a couple of times just to make sure all was well. All the utensils are there for cooking a meal, but several restaurants are just a short walk away, as is the beach! The apartment is on the back, inside a locked fence, so I never worried about security or privacy--important when I'm traveling alone! I know I will return here the next time I need a writing retreat or a romantic escape with my husband!

perfect location for a lovely little get-away

  • 5 of 5

The Mermaid Cottage is located very close to the beach, within easy walking distance, and near downtown. (One couldn't ask for a better location!) The property and apartment are lovely. Rosa has taken great care in creating a pleasant and authentic experience for her guests, and she made herself available to us immediately after our arrival. We hope to book this place on our next trip to Galveston!

Great communication with Host. Visual prompts to make arrival easy. Great selection of DVD's, although we didn't get a chance to view any. Clean, wanted for nothing. Comfortable bed and seating area. Beautiful backyard oasis. Quaint touches. Enjoyed our stay immensely! Thank you!

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.
