Captain Rogers Place...walk to the beach

1 of 24
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 8
Galveston, Galveston Island, Texas
This charming beach side cottage sits on a large lot just 1/2 a block from the beach. Our street actually dead ends at the beach. So it feels very private and great for kids because there is no traffic and no streets to cross to get to the water. The house has large balconies on two sides which provides lots of outdoor space for sun bathing, star gazing, and ocean views.There is always plenty of shade and a cool breeze on the first level perfect for outdoor barbecues, parties or just relaxing. There is also a downstairs shower with hot and cold water. The adjacent lot is perfect for games and fun in the sun. Upstairs you'll find a spacious country kitchen with plenty room, lots of seating and a view of the water. High ceilings make the rooms feel even larger. Of course the kitchen is equipted with everything you'll need for a... Read more

Interaction with guests
Our check in policy is very simple. After you book with us I will send you a conformation letter with all the info about the house that you will need. We will at that time tell you where the keys are on the property. We ask that you please put the keys back in the same place when you leave. I live in Houston so I will not be there when you check in and check out. But I am just a phone call away. If there are any issues at the house we have reliable service people in Galveston that we use regularly.

You won't find a better place to stay! Close to town and accommodations as well as only a 5 min. walk to a very nice beach! We will certainly book again if available when traveling to Galveston. Perfect and affordable!

The house was very comfortable and cozy. Our dogs loved it too! We loved the outdoor shower to clean up the sand after the beach. I would recommend bringing a wagon to carry stuff (and little ones) down to the beach. We had a great...More

About the neighbourhood
We are located in beautiful Palm Beach, a cozy little beach side neighborhood on the west end of the island nestled between two of Galveston's most prestigious subdivisions, Pirates Beach and Pirates Beach West. We are only 8.3 miles from 61st street . We are about 10 minutes from Schlitterbahn Park and Moody Gardens. Just across the highway from us about 2 minutes away is Pirates Cove with it's beautiful gulf course, country club, marina, boat launch, bait shop and luxury dining at the famous Waterman's Restuarant.

And also Galveston's new Pleasure Pier. Five more minutes and yo... more
