About Greg Philpott

Having restored a number of historic properties, we look forward to sharing charming Galveston Island with you. After living here for 15 years, we still thoroughly enjoy the unique and compelling atmosphere. We enjoy interesting shops, bars, eateries, live music and theater and some of the most spectacular sunrises. A simple morning or evening walk on the beach or dolphin watching in the harbor, we easily create enjoyable moments everyday.

Greg Philpott purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Greg Philpott chose Galveston

Built shortly after the Great Storm of 1900 in 1909, along with the identical Twin Sister house right next door. Both cottages have been lovingly restored to return their original charming splendor, while adding every modern convenience. Surrounded by numerous historical properties and views of magnificent Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and even a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico..

What makes this cottage unique

Get away from it all, yet still be in the middle of everything!

A vacation in Paradise, really!!!

  • 5 of 5

First, a big, biggest "Thank you" to the owners, Greg and John. We had a unbelievable 2 week stay in the nice cottage, named "Paradise". The name is program. Extremly well equipped and elegant furnished. Galveston comes back from the 1900th, as we like Texas. We had a great vacation and daily we remember the weeks. We're sure that we will come back. Again Greetz and Thank you from Bavaria Germany! Ute + Thomas

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation cottage! The house is just beautiful and felt like home! The beds are amazingly comfortable! All the amenities you need are included plus a full kitchen completely furnished, and wonderful outside patio with outdoor shower for returning from the beach. The location is wonderful and we loved the privacy ! Just an amazing place to stay!

Great little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a few nights and loved it. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are comfortable and have nice linens. It's only a short walk to the seawall with immediate beach access. Very close to Bishop's Palace, too, and only a brief drive to get downtown. Highly recommend.

Immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We loved paradise cottage! A cute bungalow complete with all the amenities you would need while away from home. A coral cutie outside, well-appointed and tastefully decorated inside, comfortable king size beds, great kitchen with island seating, nice clean bathrooms, good wifi, two cable tvs, chill a/c, good neighborhood, walking distance to the seawall, convenient to the Strand for shopping. Great recommendations on things to do while visiting Galveston Island. Thanks to the owners, we ate well, slept well, played well, relaxed. The outdoor shower was convenient for cleaning off sand after beach excursions. Patio was great for relaxing outdoors. The owners have thought of everything. Would recommend to anyone and would certainly love to stay again.

Perfect beach house for a quick weekend getaway. Everything you need is in the house. Comfortable beds, very clean. Close to the beach (10-15 minute walk). Close drive to the strand. Will definitely stay again!
