                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I work for the Department of the Navy and my wife is a 4th grade school teacher. We both enjoy traveling, sailing and cruising and being close to the water. We like to relax in the warm tropics with friendly people, good music and a nice cold drink. Talking, story telling, laughing, dancing and having fun with other people or sometimes just sitting quietly and reading a good book are our ideas of fun. We enjoy meeting new people and have found the folks in Texas to be friendly and charming. We both like warm weather and frequently vacation in the Caribbean. My wife likes being in the sun and I like being in the shade. This house accommodates us both nicely.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach:
                      Everyone always asks us, 'Why Galveston?' when you live in California with its beautiful beaches and great climate. Candidly, Galveston is one of the hidden gems in coastal living. We wanted beach property that was not too far from a major city because we are used to having large city amenities and access whenever we want it with Los Angeles and Orange County just 45 miles away from our home in California. With Galveston's close proximity to Houston, it made it ideal. We wanted a home that was modern but beachy and close to the beach without being on the beach with the additional risk for damage from hurricanes like Ike. Pirates Beach is upscale but relaxed with a good balance of rules that makes it a nice place to visit and live. We find the people to be friendly and whether one is going to the Spot for hamburgers or to Rudy & Paco's for a gourmet meal we have had fun. Now with Waterman's open close by we have another great place to go for evening entertainment. We looked at many Galveston locations and properties before finally settling on this property. The big problem that many properties have as you go further west is that they are too far from town and we didn't want to spend our vacation driving when we wanted to go out for dinner or a movie. We felt Jamaica Beach was as far west as we would consider. We hope that those of you that choose to rent our home enjoy it and take care of it as it is our home away from home and one we may well retire to if conditions permit.
