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.

Cozy and cool retreat!
A great space for a weekend writing retreat! The communication and directions were clear, the bed and couch were comfy, and I appreciated being so close to the beach. I also enjoyed the extensive DVD collection and courtyard space.
Jewel of Galveston. Perfect location for beach and downtown. Provides tranquility and character.
The cottage provides each visitor with the opportunity to stay in a typically styled house unique to Galveston. The character of the house has been maintained in the furnishing and style, which is quaint and quirky. All around you can see that Rosa has thought of the needs of each visitor and their particular needs. The kitchen is well furnished for self catering, the garden is beautiful with ornate furniture which makes sitting in the sun pleasant, there is a immense selections of DVD's if you want to relax indoors for a few hours. The décor is lovely and provides a relaxing ambience for your stay in Galveston. The setting provides privacy to all who stay here. Highly recommended and definitely great value for money.
Quaint and quiet!
This little gem is so perfect. Hidden off a busy street, it’s extremely quiet and the garden/patio are so tranquil. It’s perfectly close to anything and everything, but still feels secluded! The cottage is clean, well maintained and equipped with all the essentials! Highly recommended!
The Mermaid Cottage is a true Island find and part of the Isand experience!
Little did we know that staying at The Mermaid Cottage would be part of enjoying our Galveston Island experience. We love the beach, the Bryan Museum, the house tours and food, but most of all we love the peace and rest we had at the cottage. After enduring the heat, we walked into the cottage to find it so wonderfully cool and it smelled so inviting. Everything we could possibly need was there and must mention my favorite was the coffee! After our busy days it was so nice to have a hot shower, soft towels, good movies and a "wonderful" bed. Thank you Rosa for The Mermaid Cottage experience! Ralph and Benita
As a rule I don't respond to my reviews. People are always nice with their words but yours really was so detailed and generous that I felt compelled to respond. Thank you so much and it was a joy to meet you!
Great little place perfect for 2 people
Everything was very clean. Very quiet and private place. Perfect get away for a couple. Perfect for us as we had no intention of cooking large meals. Close enough the sea wall and a quick drive to the strand or ferry. Did not hangout in the court yard but it would have been great place to sit outside and enjoy the night. Plenty of parking right at the entry to court yard. Absolutely perfect for our stay
Cozy and Relaxing
This was my second stay here, and it was just as lovely and peaceful as the first. Great location, all the conveniences provided, and secure access are all appreciated.
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.
