Adorable cottage close to everything; just one block to the beach, restaurants and Pleasure Pier. You can walk to the bike rental shop to rent your bike and ride around the whole island. One bedroom has two bunk beds that sleeps 4 and the other bedroom has a queen bed that sleeps 2. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room that sleeps 2. The backyard is fully fenced in for BBQ's and private get together with friends. The front porch is a great place to sit and have morning coffee while listening to the ocean.

About Kamilah and Derek Schweizerhof

We are very excited to own a piece of the Big Island! It is our pleasure to share this unique home with our special guests!

Kamilah and Derek Schweizerhof purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Kamilah and Derek Schweizerhof chose Galveston

The property itself is adorable, homey, and charming. Everything is very comfortable and clean, and we thought it would be perfect for a vacationing family to stay at, as well as our own. The best part, you simply can't beat the proximity to the beach, The Strand, and the pier!

What makes this cottage unique

One unique benefit to this home is the ability to step out on to the porch, turn to your right, and see the ocean! Knowing that you are a block away from the edge of the country is something you don't experience day to day.

Great Location, Great Price, Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this beach house for the first time and LOVED everything about it! The owners were so accommodating from the very beginning, providing us with all the information we'd need during our stay (i.e. driving directions, home access instructions, WIFI codes, etc.) and stocking the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, and linen closets with all of the essential items. The Keurig machine was an awesome touch; a few of us enjoyed our coffee on the tranquil front porch every morning! The house is literally a three minute walk to the seawall, so we were easily able to go back and forth between the house and all of the Galveston action (i.e. beach, Pleasure Pier, bike rental shops, bars, restaurants, etc). The place slept all eight of us very comfortably in the full bed, bunk beds, and pull out sofa, plus there was plenty of room for us all to just hang out and socialize when we wanted to stay in. I would highly recommend this beach house; we are already planning another trip to stay here this summer!

A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth 🌏

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two kiddos ages 1 and 3. There is SO much on the island for these ages. The house was well stocked and even has some sand toys etc. I brought beach towels and didn’t need them as there are already plenty. The house is SO charming. It is close to everything. We love to take family walks and this location made them very enjoyable as there were so many locations. I did bring a travel high chair and pack n play for my baby and if you have a baby or bitty one I would recommend you do the same of course. I would estimate it is a 5-8 minute walk to the beach and 7-10 to Pleasure Pier. We did drive to go to Moody Gardens which was 15+ minutes but worth it for the kiddos. We also LOVED going to the Mod Coffee shop per the owners recommendation and it was beyond amazing so we walked there most mornings (about a 20 minute walk). My kiddos also loved the Galveston Children’s Museum (it is a real gem) and was a few minutes drive. We stayed a week and when we come back to Galveston we will definitely try to book the same charming location. For a beach trip the laundry facility is almost essential and it was nice to have it separated from the rest of the house. I did a load most days we were there. The kitchen is well stocked and has coffee makers, wine glasses and all your basic appliances. The dining room and all the decor will melt your heart. I will treasure the memories of laughing and playing on the ocean with my little ones for a lifetime.

Very nice, very clean, would be nice if there was a chair in the living room, the umbrella that the person left-is broke, and no can opener-and not one at the store!! :) we would give anyone this VRBO rental, it was perfect! Thanks so much!

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family getaway! We had just enough space for 8 of us, and we weren't tripping over each other. We had so much fun and couldn't have been more perfect for us! The beach is literally a 5-minute walk and the home was decorated with a beach theme that was so adorable. Thanks for everything!

Super Cute Beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was everything we were hoping it would be, and more! This was our first experience traveling without hotels and I can honestly say it was amazing. The beach house was well maintained and had everything we needed for a fun beach trip. We loved the charm of the décor, the space to spread out after a long fun day at the pier/ocean, and the amenities. We were close enough to walk to not only the beach, but restaurants and local activities as well. Only one heads up to those who've never stayed, you'll need to bring your own bar soap! Haha!

Owner's Response: Hey Stephanie. Thanks so much for the lovely review! We enjoyed having you and are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Apologies that soap was not available. There actually was supposed to be some, but we think someone either finished it or walked off with it. Should you find yourself down in Galveston in the future, we hope to host you again. This time with soap :)!
