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 2015

Lovely Home-Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a nice home with nice accommodations! Even my 2 teen kids liked it and it was close enough for them to walk to the beach on their own. Such nice touches to make it comfortable. We could easily get Lyft to pick us up too and take us back and forth to the activities and to the store. My friend and I rented the home first for a conference in town and was glad to see lights on and even jazz music playing when we arrived late! LOVED IT! I will certainly stay there again! Thanks Greg!!

Absolute best secret in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

I read ALL of the reviews for both of their cottages before we booked our weekend getaway. I was absolutely impressed with our stay as well. They really do live up to the reviews. The house was very clean and we wanted for nothing. I had to contact Greg a few things about our stay for little things here and there, mostly questions. Each time, he was very quick to respond and very helpful and friendly.

My boyfriend accidentally left his guitar there and the owner gracefully offered to bring it into Houston for us so we could pick it up conveniently without going all the way back into Galveston. WOW! That is exceptional service and then some.

When you consider how much a hotel on the island costs and how much it costs to rent a fully equipped 2 bedroom 2 bath home close to the beach.... well, this was an obvious win. Then you get all the extras and the exceptional customer service and it's just a no-brainer. This is our absolute highest recommended vacation getaway recommendation and only choice for us in Galveston.

If I could give this 100 stars, I would try to give even more than that. They are above and beyond better than any place I have stayed in Galveston by a landslide. Truly happy to have had that experience and can't wait for the next one.

Thank you Greg, for sharing your beautiful home with us and all of your amazing customer support. Thank you for going above-and-beyond to see that we were happy and content.
