Pirates Beach house description

At Bucko's Bungalow we cater to those who are looking for an inviting, cozy, clean, and convenient beach house. Our home features amazing Gulf views, a super short walk to the beach, and all the desired amenities. We also provide a wheelchair accessible elevator for those who find navigating the steep outside stairs of beach houses problematic (and it's really helpful when you're hauling luggage and groceries!).

Located in the "Pirate's Beach" subdivision, our property is an easy drive to historic downtown Galveston, the Strand, Moody Gardens, and all that the island has to offer. We also provide our guests with access to the Galveston Country Club which has a golf course, restaurant, and pool.

Our house is set up for comfort, not body count. We have purposefully arranged the bedrooms to afford people the ability to sleep. For example, the master bedroom is on the top floor and only has a king-sized bed. So, you have a separate and private suite with Gulf views from the bed and a private deck to top it off. Sweet!

Since we have our own small dog that we love to bring to the beach, we allow you the same privilege. However, there are a few rules and responsibilities that must be honored and they're outlined in the listing agreement. Additionally, there is a $100 fee per dog (max. 2).

Our weekly rental period runs from Sunday afternoon through Sunday morning. Please, only 25 or older and no smoking.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: Sadly, we're still hard at work and our desired daily beach lifestyle is more dream than reality!

                          Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach:
                          It's simple, we love historic downtown Galveston and the beach. We decided that there's nothing finer than being "Islanders by Choice." Oh, and the access from Houston is so close and easy.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          When we purchased this property we decided to set it up as a cozy and comfortable second home with all the amenities that we enjoy. So, it's not a beach bunk house. We have a new big screen HDTV, digital programming, the faster wifi you can get from the cable company, etc. Also, we wanted the elevator to ensure that our folks could visit and not be excluded due to the unmanageable exterior stairs.
