                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About the owner: We grew up on the island and still view it as 'home' even though we have not lived there since we went away to college. We love Galveston.

                              Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach:
                              We chose this house for its' location. Pirates Beach has a family friendly, neighborhood feel to it and it is close enough to town to be convenient for shopping etc. We have great neighbors and everyone is friendly.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              This home has a great view of the beach. We also like that one of the bedrooms is like a private getaway for a family. It is 2 rooms with a bath and a small 'kitchen' area in between. We call it the apartment.
