About the property

Quiet serenity of Galveston's finest historic neighborhod one bedroom sleeps 4

Beautifully refurbished by an owner who insisted on modern conveniences with while maintaining that feeling of history. It has a beautiful screened in porch; new appliances; full sized kitchen; washer and dryer; new bed and furnishings; TV and wifi; outdoor patio, shower, and grill; original wood floors and walls; split air...and so much more. Enjoy a bit of history with the convenience of 2015 renovation. Cottage is equipped with new dishes, appliances, courtesy basket of soap, shampoo, hair dryer and many more conveniences. The cottage is within walking distance of great restaurants. It is close to everything but not on a main street where you would be disturbed by traffic even on the busiest of weekends. The home survived the 1900 storm and was separated from the house to which it had been attached. It sat completely unused for years but has been completely resurrected with all of the latest comforts.

About Lisa Manuele

The current owners were married in Galveston and decided to relocate to the Island a few years ago from the Great White North. The weather and the feel of the island was irresistible.

They love the history and that there is always something to do in Galveston. They hope you will love Galveston and the cottage as much as they do.

Lisa Manuele purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Lisa Manuele chose Galveston

The house was rescued and completely restored and expanded by the previous owner that grew up and lives in Galveston. She was an interior designer in Houston for years. She also has a minor in architecture. The cottage was redone and furnished as if the then owner herself would utilize the property. She owned another historic home in Galveston previously, and it was very important that this cottage, although modernized, retained many of its original components. The woman that restored the property had her eye on this property for 15 years and it came up for sale she could not resist the opportunity to renovate the property and to preserve it for Galveston and now for people who want to truly enjoy Galveston and all of the charm and history it has to offer.

We fell in love with our cottage the minute we entered. Our love of historic architecture motivated us to purchase the property, and we want to share it.

What makes this cottage unique

Location...Location...Location coupled with a screened in porch, enclosed yard, and soft lighting. You can sit on the porch and really have a feel for what life must have been like. You can open up the doors and the porch becomes a part of the home. Take a short walk by Bishop's Palace, walk to great restaurants, and only minutes from the beach and down town. It is a quiet neighborhood comprised of many historic homes giving you hours of pleasure just walking the neighborhood enjoying all of the unique and timeless homes.

We had a great trip. The owners were very responsive when we texted them questions a few times. This was our first VRBO and will definitely do it again! The house was perfect for my me, my wife, and two bits.
