Description of the Galveston vacation home rental
This charming beach side cottage sits on a large lot just 1/2 block from the beach. Large balconies on two sides provide lots of outdoor space for sun bathing, star gazing, and ocean views.There is always plenty of shade and a cool breeze on the first level perfect for outdoor barbecues, parties or just relaxing. The adjacent lot is perfect for games and fun in the sun. Upstairs you'll find a spacious country kitchen with plenty room, lots of seating and a view of the water. High ceilings make the room feel even larger. Of course the kitchen is equipted with everything you'll need for a great family gathering. The living room is a spacious area with cathedral ceilings, wood plank walls and of course the view. Besides the sofas,in the living area there are 3 twin beds. Two of the beds sit up against the front windows. Open those windows, let the sound of the ocean and the cool breeze in and I guarantee it's the best place in the house to take a nap. Two bedrooms; one is bright with a queen bed and opens on the the balcony with a view. The back bedroom has a full bed and is perfect for a quiet,cozy retreat. You'll love it. It feels like a beach house.
Area Information
We are located in beautiful Plam Beach, a cozy little beachside neighborhood on the westend of the island nestled between two of Galvestons most prestigous subdivisions, Pirates Beach and Pirates Beach West. We are only 8.3 miles from 61st street. I think these are some of the best beaches on the island. And just across the highway about 2 minutes away is Pirates Cove with it's beautiful gulf course, country club, marina, boat launch, bait shop and luxury dining at the famous Watermans Resturant. It's upstairs dining is the perfect place for watching the sunset over the marina and the bay. Ten minutes and you are at the Galveston Seawall with shops and dining and treasures galore. Five more minutes and you are in Historic Downtown Galveston. When you step on to the Strand you will feel like you stepped back in time. It is the Main Street of the old Galveston era. Blocks of beautiful old buildings filled now with antique shops, art galeries, ice cream parlors and much more. And on the way back don't forget to take a ride down Broadway. There you will find the old historic mansions. Take a tour if you have time. Or explore the adjacent nieghborhoods with miles of old homes, some restored, some not, and get the feel of Galveston in days gone by. There is so much to do here you will just have to come back to the island.

Such a charming place! We can't wait to go back!

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Captain Rogers Place. It is loaded with French Country eclectic charm that made us feel so welcome. The kitchen has everything you need and there is plenty of room for dining, lounging, and sleeping. The huge wrap around porch with the view and sound of the ocean is where we spent most of our time while not at the beach. Thank you Elaine for making the process of renting from you so easy and strait forward. We can't wait to come back! Jeff and Joey

We couldn't have asked for more! The home is very charming with many comfortable beds. The owner was very accomidating and friendly. The beach is very private accessable only through the very family friendly neighborhood. The beach does inot allow moter vehicles but is only steps away from the house. The beach is also well maintained and cleaned of seaweed and debrea often. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Plain and Simple!

My husband and I went to Galveston for the weekend and stayed at Captain Rogers Place. We had a wonderful time! First off: The house was simple and small. Since it was just the two of us, we didn't need an elaborate and expensive house. We felt comfortable and were also very close to the beach. We plan to stay at this house many more times.

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Hi Charlene, THank you for the nice review. Glad ya'll had a good time and we would be delighted to have you stay with us again. Elaine

Captain Rogers cottage beach house was perfect for our family. The beach was a close walk that we did morning and afternoon. The large kitchen bar was ideal. We all had enough sleeping space and even with one bathroom it worked out without any trouble. My family of 9 which included 3 grandkids had a wonderful time, Perfect place for our family trip to Dickens on the Strand weekend.

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Hey Mark. Thank you so much for the nice review and thank you for the business. You guys were great. And thank you again for turning the water off. Looks like it might freeze tonight. so that saved me a trip down there. You are welcomed back anytime. We hope to see you again. Elaine

Lavon TX.

Great Experience!!!

I stayed here with my parents, brother, wife, kid, nephew, and grandmother. This was a fantastic place. Even on the Memorial day weekend the neiborhood was quiet. It was very close to the beach so it was easy to walk back and forth to the house which meant we did not have to take a bunch of stuff with us to the beach when we went. The house was plenty big and never felt cramped. I would recomend this property to anyone looking for a nice beach vacation.

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Hi Clint, Thank you so much for the nice review. You are welcomed back anytime. I also wanted to say thank you for leaving the house in perfect order. It was hard to believe that 7 people stayed there. It was immaculate. You get the gold star for housekeeping. Thank you again and I'm glad you guys had a good time. Elaine

Julie Hackett

Convenient location, cozy cottage

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The wind was a little brisk, but the house was cozy and we were able to enjoy a lot of deck time as well as time on the beach. I would recommend this house for a nice getaway to Galveston.

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Hi Julie, Thank you so much for the nice review. Hope you guys had a safe trip home. And I hope you know you are welcomed back anytime. Thank you again for the business. Elaine

Capt Rogers Bike Week

This was our 2nd year staying here during bike rally. I like it because you can go to the rally and come back, walk the beach and relax. Get away from the crowds, and be a beach bum. The house is comfortable and the proximity to the beach makes it what we really needed. Want to bring my son & daughter in law and grand baby sometime:) Did I say BEACH??

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the nice review Paula. You and your family are welcomed back any time. Hope to hear from you soon. Elaine

Elizabeth Alvarez


Peaceful Place

I spent the weekend there with my family, and loved it. the cottage is so cute and just a 1/2 block walk to the beach. The locals were very nice, and welcoming. Elaine was so nice and made the rental process easy as pie. Will definatley will be coming back, and this will always be my place of preferance when I spend time in galveston. The beach was wonderful, and very clean. Thanks Elaine

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Hi Elizabeth, Thank you so much for the nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing you again. Thank you again, Elaine

John Burkes

Canton, Tx

Had a great time

This is our first time to stay at a beach house with our 3 yr old son and we all had a blast. House was clean, the beach wasn’t far away you could see the beach from the house. Just far enough away from Galveston to get away from it all and still close enough to get whatever you may need from the store. Very reasonably price for the time we stayed. Elaine was easy to contact and very available. We really enjoyed staying here.

Elaine Duplechain

Owner's reply:

Thank you John for the nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed it and hope you come back to the island soon.
