From the beach, to The Strand, to the history and amusement parks, Galveston has something for everyone! Plum Cottage is the perfect location to enjoy all of this. You are blocks from the beach in one direction and the Strand in the other direction

The space

Plum Cottage is perfect for couples or families. We offer a beautiful and comfortable interior along with a relaxing outdoor space with a large firepit. You can explore the seawall and the Strand on one of our 5 beach cruisers. We also offer an oversized 1 car garage for your car while you stay at the cottage.

This is my home away from home that I love coming to with my boys. It was a dream come true to finally own a piece of Galveston history. Please be kind to our cottage and treat it like your own. We are happy to host you and hope you take away many wonderful memories from your time here.

I'm happy to answer any questions during your stay and also to offer up advice on places to go and things to see.

I also offer a pack n play for families with babies. In addition, the sofa folds flat into another bed.

Guest access

The entire cottage, along with the exterior are all yours while you're renting my home. If you'd like access to the garage for your vehicle and all the amenities inside, including: beach umbrella, noodles, boogie boards and 5 brand new beach cruisers, there is an additional fee of $10/night.

Interaction with guests

I will be available via text or phone for your entire visit.

Other things to note

When you stay at Plum Cottage, you're staying in a piece of history. It has historic designation and was built in 1904.

Christine's place is so charming! It Lives up to the accurate description & is spotlessly clean & tidy. We found it very spacious & having the backyard & garage made quite the difference. My kids loved the games & the bunk beds. We never actually used the bikes but they looked great fun. Christine was very helpful & always available to contact. I would highly recommend it!

Plum Cottage is a gem! It is quaint & cozy, and centrally located to the beach & the Strand. Our kids loved the variety of games available, and they were a blessing when we had a rainy afternoon. We'd definitely stay here again!

We loved Plum Cottage! It was my husband and I and our 2 kids, ages 2 & 4. They loved the bunk beds so much. We utilized the bikes by bringing our bike trailer for our kiddos. The beach toys, umbrella, and mat was so handy! We cooked out and loved the courtyard! My kids loved making smores. Overall, it was the perfect house for our trip!

Historic house with all modern amenities. The garage has everything you need for the beach (chairs, umbrellas, etc). The neighborhood is quiet at night and close to the pleasure pier and a lot of the dining. Christine is available via call or text and answers almost immediately. Overall it was a great stay.

Christine User ProfileChristine is a superhost.

I decided to become an airbnb host after I started traveling around the world as a female solo traveler. I fell in love with the concept of airbnb and how it's completely changed travel. My airbnb hosts around the world were amazing! I built beautiful relationships and had experiences I never would have had if I'd stayed in a hotel. I want to host travelers to my beautiful beach town, Galveston. I want to share with them what I love about this town and give them an incredible experience beyond a place to stay.

I am a general manager of a restaurant in Houston and I live in a warehouse loft downtown with my two boys. My oldest child attends Duke University. I have a dog and a cat. I'm also an avid cyclist and Longboarder. I'm offering beach cruisers to guests because I think it's the best way to explore the island.
