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!

Cute cottage, perfect for two couples.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was well stocked and a great size for two couples. Wish the parking was off the street but worked well for our two cars. We will definitely stay here again.

Cute, clean, comfortable cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great! Just big enough and high ceilings made the space seem bigger. Very clean and comfortable; has everything you need. Only downside..garage door was not automatic and definitely tricky to park car.

Owner's Response: Thank You for the great review, we look forward to accommodating your family in the future. The cottage is a historical home circa 1909 (built before the mass production of automobiles) with a low clearance garage primarily for motorcycles and bikes,. Small compact cars can also use the garage. There is ample street parking right in front of the cottage.

Great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

From the time we walked in until the time we left we left we enjoyed the cottage. We had everything we needed for a wonderful stay from a place to store our motorcycles to enjoying a cocktail and dinner in the evening. We will stay here again for sure.
