Property description

This beautiful, privately owned beach home is ideal for family get-togethers or a reunion of old friends. The house has a large 'beach facing' deck (with both covered & uncovered areas) to catch the summer breezes & watch the waves. The large yard is great for playing games, water slides & picnicking. The kitchen is fully equipped, allowing you to cook, grill or go out to the strand for dinner. The house is just 150 yards from the beach (a 2 minute walk) with great views from the kitchen, deck & master bedroom. It is located in the prestigious Pirate's Beach community where the beaches are private and well groomed. Home includes all the creature comforts including FREE WIFI, gas grill, outdoor shower, patio furniture, large flat screen flatscreen TVs in bedrooms & den. It's a great location for a beach vacation. Only a 10 minute drive to Schlitterbahn & Moody Gardens or the Pleasure Pier. This is a non-smoking vacation home and we do not rent to persons under the age of 29.
Weekly rentals only from 5/30 - 8/18.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I was born & raised in Houston, Texas. I purchased my Galveston home as a relaxing getaway for myself & family. I have stocked & decorated it as an 'upscale but relaxed' weekend getaway. It is such a beautiful home & perfect refuge for enjoying the sea breezes & beach fun that I decided to share it with caring tenants. Come enjoy a break from the city heat, traffic & stress. You will feel your blood pressure drop when you step out of the car!

Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach:
My beach house is newly renovated & located in the prestigous Pirate's Beach community, (Galveston's premier area for vacation homes) where the beaches are private and well maintained. It's the best beach in Galveston, and vacationer's & families love this area of Galveston. Pirates' Beach is 8 minutes from Moody Gardens & Schlitterbahn. It's the perfect location giving you quick access to the Strand & various attractions without the seawall crowds. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're in the Pirates Beach community.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home includes access to the Galveston Country club for golf, tennis, swimming pool & dining room privileges. It's only 150 yds to the beach, and the large yard is great for games & picnicing. Enjoy a day at the beach, grilling shrimp on the BBQ and having a glass of wine on the deck, relaxing in the gulf breeze or a round of golf at the country club followed by a snooze in the hammock.
