Family-friendly vacation home in Galveston
Be sure to check out our 3D interactive virtual tour of The Cove House -

Picture perfect paradise beckons from this fantastic coastal home located on a protected cove in the Galveston Bay. The Cove House is newly renovated with a modern, clean design to provide the ultimate getaway retreat for your staycation, celebration, family getaway, or corporate event.

The home sleeps 14 guests comfortably with four serene private rooms (one king and three queens), a spacious bunk room with two queen over queen bunk beds, and two sofa bed couches.

The second-story living space offers relaxing views of the calm bay from the living room, a cozy library nook, media room, dining space, and adjacent chef’s kitchen. This open floorplan space was designed to create a warm, inviting atmosphere, perfect for entertaining guests or kicking up your feet to enjoy a movie or ballgame on the media room’s 60” TV. The state-of-the-art kitchen is sure to inspire creativity when preparing home-cooked meals or gathering for a quick snack with a view at the gourmet central island.

The first-floor bunk room is the perfect place to hang out after a long day in the sun. The large space is set up with a TV, comfortable seating area and table tennis to challenge friends and family!

Step out into your backyard to enjoy easy access to swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, boating, and sunbathing by the sea. We also have bikes and floaties for you to enjoy!

After a day on the bay, enjoying the waves at the beach, strolling down Pleasure Pier, dining at the island’s most delicious restaurants, and gallivanting around this lively beach town. After enjoying the island, retire to the Cove House for sunset views and refreshments on one of the three back patios overlooking the water.

The home includes free parking, initial supply of linens and towels, washer and dryer, color cable TV, air conditioning, starter supply of paper products and detergents, fully-equipped kitchen with dinnerware, flatware, pots, and pans, plus local telephone service and wireless internet service.

Wonderful Family Retreat
This property provided the perfect weekend getaway for our multigenerational family. The photos and description are quite accurate. Upon arriving, it was very clean and at the perfect temperature. The beds were comfortable. The entire place was spacious for our group of 14, and the simplistic, modern decor was a welcomed change from the typical nautical/seashell decor of most Galveston rentals. The place is fully stocked with gear for activities for the whole family: kayak, paddle boards, bicycles, fishing gear, life vests, beach chairs and toys. The kids had a blast fishing on the private pier, playing ping pong and playing kickball in the side yard which has an awesome artificial turf. Bonus was the front row fireworks display we got from Moody Gardens on Saturday night . The only minor negatives were: there were no large sized frying pans (just a couple of small ones) which made cooking for a large group a little difficult; there were no scissors or kitchen shears (only a really old rusted pair); and communication was lacking- after booking the property and writing an introduction message to the property manager/owner, I never received any kind of message back as I usually do when booking properties. Then on the day of check-in, which is stated to be at 4pm, I still had no notification of how to access the property. I finally sent a message via VRBO at 3:30pm which got no response by the 4pm check-in time. I finally located a phone # of the property manager/owner and left a voicemail just after 5pm. I never got a call back, but I finally got a message via VRBO about 5:30pm with the instructions on how to access the property. Thankfully we weren’t standing at the door at 4pm with no way to get in, but had we been, this would have been all the more frustrating; I’ve never had to reach out to the property manager/owner the day of/post check-in time to gain access to a fully paid rental. Nonetheless, I still would recommend this property for all that it has to offer.
