The Periwinkle Cottage is a cozy mid-century cottage with traditional
charm throughout. From the moment you step inside, you'll be
reminded of those cabins you stayed in during your summer vacation as
a kid. The living room has knotty-pine walls with wood floors
throughout all of the rooms. It's like a step back in time, but with
all of the modern conveniences. The home has just been
renovated with a new metal roof, new wiring, new plumbing and
fixtures, new bathroom and new kitchen appliances.

Take a look at the photos of all the rooms, and you'll see the
Periwinkle Cottage has maintained it's original vintage charm. This
is because we used recycled (original) materials as much as possible
and we decorated with fun, beach-cottage colors. According to the
feedback from the guests, The Periwinkle Cottage is a fun place to
stay. It's a relaxing, comfortable space that is far more
enjoyable than a hotel room, because there are no strangers on the
other side of the bedroom wall. Plus, there is a fenced yard with
a deck to relax on with your favorite beverage.

Kids especially love the Bunk room, with the built-in alcove
bunk beds. Each bunk bed has a built-in night stand with a place for
you to put your Ipod, cell phone, game device or your favorite book.
We thought of everything! Each of these bunk beds also has their own
individually controlled light so you can read your favorite book
without disturbing your bunk-mate.

Adults will also appreciate the bunk beds, because they were sized
with adults in mind. Each bunk has a full 36" of head-room from
mattress-to-ceiling; roomy enough so that most adults should not bump
their head or have those claustrophobic feelings.

The inspirations for the colors in the bunk room were taken from a
recent trip to one of the island's many Mexican restaurants. The
interior of each bunk is the color of limeade; think of your favorite
frozen margarita! The walls were inspired by guacamole; don't forget
the chips & salsa! The two shades of green go well together; and
with coordinated linens the space reminds you that you're on vacation
and you're supposed to be having fun!

The kitchen is just as cheerful as it could possibly be. We've used
retro colors that are bright and funl. The kitchen renovations
included new appliances, counter tops, sink and a custom designed
built-in booth that has seating for six adults. The kitchen table
was made from recycled materials; vintage siding from Galveston
homes. Take a look at the PHOTOS page, and you'll see the table was
attached to the floor with metal pedestals from an old ship. It's a
one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted work of art; but that's not all. Many
walls in the cottage feature art created by local Galveston artists.
It's an eclectic mix that includes vintage works as well as more
recent works.
