For years, Pirates Beach has been Galveston's premier vacation spot for families visiting the island. The beautiful beaches here are quiet and very family friendly. Meet new friends in the neighborhood or refresh old ones. Pirate's Beach is so peaceful, that it's easy to slow down to Island Time.
While in Galveston, plan to explore Moody Gardens; seek new thrills at Pleasure Pier; dive into Schlitterbahn, and shop the Historic Strand.
Welcome to the good life! Welcome to the Best of Times!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I am a BOI (born on island) and grew up in Galveston, just a few miles from Pirates Beach. After moving to Houston and marrying a Midwesterner (and having four kids!), we have rediscovered how enchanting Galveston is. Through years of family vacations, all of us have fallen in love with Galveston.
Dreams really do come true! In 2013, our family discovered Best of Times, the perfect family beach house. Now, we are so excited to share it with YOUR family.
Our kids have lots of energy and busy schedules. Galveston is the perfect place for us to get away from the hustle and bustle of suburbia and enjoy each other. We are a Christian family, who would love to share this blessing with you.
We hope you also discover this beach house is perfect for making family memories. We hope you can reconnect with the people you love the most. We hope you can find your own Best of Times.
Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach: Best of Times is the perfect size. We go to the beach to relax, but we also go to be together. The large, open family room and dining area lets us enjoy each other. The three bedrooms and two baths gives us plenty of room to spread out.
Our family loves Pirates Beach. Ice cream trucks come by every afternoon, golf carts carry families and groups of friends to the beach, and dog-walkers and shell-seekers wave from the quiet streets below our deck.
The house is a short drive to the island's most interesting attractions; yet, it's far enough from the city that we can relax.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The large lower deck is shaded and has a refrigerator to keep your drinks cool. We also have floats and chairs for you to take to the beach.
Our golf cart is available for rental for an additional fee. We welcome pets, with some restrictions.
