Awesome, wonderful, incredible, adorable, romantic and fun are just a few of the words our guests use to describe the cutest bungalow in Pirates Cove. The first floor has all wooden floors and ceiling fans with fabulous views of the sunset while relaxing to have a drink. The master bedroom has a king size bed with its own private bath and a flat screen TV/DVD. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom and a single bed on top and adjoins the second bathroom and the laundry room. The loft has bean bag chairs for the kids with its own TV/DVD player to keep them out of your hair or give you a place to go read a book. The living room and kitchen face due west for great views of the sunset and overlook our fabulous canal that is just a few hundred feet from the bay. The kitchen has all new appliances and opens into the family room for conversation or watching the flat screen TV/DVD. Go ahead and cook those fish you just caught off the dock. There are big 300 watt fishing lights at the dock. All the pots, pans and utensils you will need are provided. If you want, there is a propane bar-b-que grill just outside the front door. There is a brand new boat lift just steps from the front door, so bring your boat or just sit on the dock and catch fish or crabs(crab trap provided) for dinner. The dock and the downstairs sitting area have plenty of seats to watch the sunset, fishing or the kids swimming in the canal. There is a downstairs toilet and lavatory so you don’t have to run back upstairs when the urge calls. Access to Galveston Country Club is provided as part of your rental, UPON REQUEST. That means access to golf, tennis, and swimming, a pool for children too. If you like, food and beverages are served poolside during the summer. The kids will live in the pool till you drag them out. The restaurant has really good food with a seafood buffet on Friday nites. The bar in the restaurant serves everything you need to complete your meal and has flat screen TV’s to enjoy your favorite sporting event or show. At our canal home you can relax or swim outside in the canal or take a short ride to the beach, max 1 mile straight up the road from the house. We love to take a walk in the morning followed by a trip to West End Gym. They have weekend priviledges if you are interested. Restaurants, grocery stores, gas etc. are just minutes away. If you have a boat or kayak( we provide one kayak for guest use) you are just a few hundred yards from the bay. Starvation Cove has great fishing, one of best places in West Bay, just about a mile by boat or kayak. Fish stories will abound, but the fish are right there waiting for you. We have found that they love live shrimp the best. If you don’t use those shrimp, then cook em up!

Why Pirates Cove: Galveston is just over an hour from our home. We have 9 grandkids and when they come to visit us in Galveston, the house is just perfect for them...they will not all fit in our home. We love Galveston Texas and just can’t get enough of it. Every time we drive over the Causeway bridge our blood pressure drops about 20 points. We love the gorgeous sunsets, the fishing, kayaking, boating, wonderful restaurants and just being able to relax or workout at the gym.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We just love the fishing, Galveston Country Club, friendly islanders, waking the beach, good food and most beautiful sunsets ever!!. We really enjoy all the amenties that Galveston has to offer..... such as, Moody Gardens, Pleasure Pier, The Strand, Dickens on The Strand, Pleasure Pier, Elyssia boat tour, Duck Tours, Railraod museum, Submarine tours, air boat rides, Aerial plane tours, Warbird Rides etc. There is so much to do and so little time.
