Property description

*FEATURED PROPERTY: SHORT TERM RENTAL OWNER’S ASSOCIATION OF GALVESTON (STROAG) 2014 TOUR OF HOMES
Sugar Shack on the Gulf is a bright, breezy, well-decorated vacation getaway. After a concierge check-in with our property manager, a Certified Galveston Tourism Ambassador, we hope you enjoy our historic home! Built circa 1902, this quaint two-unit cottage is located just two blocks from the seawall! Sugar Shack has been completely renovated, with original hardwood floors, high ceilings and a fully appointed kitchen including granite counter tops and a glass tile back splash. This unit, located downstairs, has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bedroom with a twin bunk bed and a sectional sleeper sofa (queen size) in the living room as well. The upstairs unit is very similar, for more information, please see VRBO listing #390310. Everything about the decor of this charming cottage harkens back to it's historic island roots!

Each unit has a private front porch and spacious back deck that beckon you for morning coffee and evening margaritas to the sound of crashing waves, just blocks away. The private, fenced-in private back yard is beautifully landscaped with luscious tropical plants. Highly desirable, private off-street parking is located behind the backyard fence.

Rates: VRBO allows owners to specify weekly and monthly rates. Ours are: weekly $121/night and monthly $60/night. We also offer a 2 week rate of $90/night, however the system won't allow us to make this quote automatic. Please reach out for more details. Also, monthly rental rates are not available March, June, July & August.

*To see reviews, please see our other VRBO Listing, #390310, as we previously used one listing to rent both units.

This home is walking distance to some of the locals favorite watering (and eating!) Captain Jack's, Saltgrass Steakhouse & ShyKatZ Restaurant. For more detailed information about our Galveston recomendations, please see my pinterest board:
