                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: I live in Houston and wanted a peaceful refuge to escape the heat and congestion of the big city. This house was perfect... the view is fabulous and it feels like I'm on the beach without leaving my deck. It's so close, that I can hear the waves, the seagulls & beach lovers without ever leaving my house. :) I have decided to share my beautiful home with caring guests that appreciate upscale furnishings.

                          Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach:
                          In Feb 2010 I renovated this home in a 'Cape Cod meets Key West' style. The home has a green belt behind it which is a protected area and gives the location a more private feeling than the typical beach home. You can lay in the master bed and look over the dunes to the water. Located in Pirates' Beach, the house is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're at this house.
