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!

Beautiful little home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a couples getaway! The home has everything you need! We enjoyed our coffee (which they had in the fridge!) on the patio in the morning! I would definitely consider renting it again and have already recommended it to friends.

Stayed here with family for Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest vacation homes I have stayed in. The place was emaculate, and very comfortable. The location was great my 80 year old mother in law was able to walk to the beach and into downtown with us. Plan to stay here next time if abailable.

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
