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

gorgeous seaside retreat

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage.

Its within a ahort walk to the beach and had everything you could possibly need.

Furnishings are good quality and fabulously in keeping with the cottage.

Without wishing to repeat the words in every other excellent review its very easy to understand the consistent 5 stars.and agree with them.

We had a number if dealings with the owner who was incredibly responsive and renter focussed - unfortunately we had a breakage when there and this was dealt with professionaly and with understanding.

Excellent rental and owner - thank you for having us Greg and John!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk from the beach, Serenity Cottage was charming and just perfect for our girls' getaway. My mom is 83 and we two daughters in our 50's. However, it is good for all ages! It was roomy enough and loved the charm of the 1936 home. It was decorated nicely, had everything we needed and it was very comfortable for us. We will absolutely return!
