Pirates Beach house description

Feeling tossed around by the storms of daily life and a busy schedule? Escape to The Hurricane House.

Lovingly named by our kids and their cousins, The Hurricane House is actually a great place to retreat and enjoy some relaxation and fun with the family. (The name was derived from the hurricane shutters that cover the windows to protect the house from a storm.)

This 4 bedroom, 3 bath house has features that the whole family will like. The adults will appreciate the open living area downstairs with room to spread out; the built-in gas grill on the ground level for cooking meals; the spacious master bedroom which is complete with a private deck and a view of the ocean, king sized bed and walk in shower with 2 shower heads; free wifi. The kids will have a blast bunking together in the 2 guest rooms upstairs which are connected by a bathroom. Each of these rooms has a set of bunk beds and a full size bed so there lots of room for friends. We also have a good selection of board games, card games and a Wii to entertain them. Its a great home base for your upcoming beach vacation.

Other features the house includes...
A fourth bedroom downstairs with a twin bed and a mattress underneath that can be pulled out to sleep an another person.

The kitchen comes fully stocked with all the pots, pans, plates, bowls, silverware, etc that you would need to prepare meals.

There is a washer and dryer available for your use, conveniently located in the laundry room next to the kitchen.

Need ice for your drink cooler to take to the beach? We have an ice maker in the laundry in addition to the one in the kitchen freezer.

The main living area has a TV equipped with cable. All of the other bedrooms have a TV and 3 of the 4 also have a DVD player.

Its got everything you need to feel right at home!

                  Car: Necessary

                  Our beach house is located on the West End of Galveston Island in the Pirates Beach community. Away from the busyness of the city, you will enjoy the slow pace of island living at its best.

                  Awake to the sound of seagulls or the crash of the waves. Being just a couple blocks from the beach, its only a short walk before you can be lounging in your beach chair on the sand. (Don't forget to rent a golf cart to make getting around even easier. Its the 'thing to do' these days. Golf carts have become part of everyday life in this community.) While you are relaxing, the kids will love playing in the surf, riding waves or making sandcastles.

                  Looking to wet a hook? Galveston offers a variety of fishing options. When the trout are running, fishing right out in the surf is a favorite spot. Catch the best speckled trout with a cork and live shrimp. There are also local boats that can be chartered for a day trip in the bay. Or head down to the Galveston Fishing Pier, which is open 24 hours a day.

                  If you are ready for a break from the beach, you are just a short drive from other popular island activities. Head over to the Galveston Country Club for a swim in the pool, a round of golf or a game of tennis. Just ask and we can get you a guest pass so that you have access to these facilities (additional cost applies). Check out the new Pleasure Pier for exciting rides and carnival fun. Challenge your family to a game of mini golf at Magic Carpet Golf and then enjoy a Hawaiian shaved ice afterwards. Stroll the shops at the Strand and stay for dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants. Explore the rainforest and aquarium at Moody Gardens.

                  These are just some of the many activities that you can enjoy during a vacation to Galveston Island!

                  Why Pirates Beach:
                  I have so many fond memories of spending time at Pirates Beach with my family growing up. My grandparents would rent a house for a week or 2 in the summer and take me along. We would hunt for seashells, walk to the general store for the newspaper and a Fudgebomb :), fish in the surf and play in the water. At night they would gather around the table to eat fresh seafood and play a game of cards. Now as parents of 4 boys, my husband and I wanted to share these experiences with them. We had been renting a beach house with family and friends for the past several years but decided it was time to invest in our own house. And with our kids' grandparents living just a couple of blocks away, it seemed like an even better idea. We will look forward to many more memories in the years to come and are happy to share our home for your family to make some special beach memories of your own.
