Being from Houston, we wanted a vacation home close and an easy 1 hour drive. Pirates Beach West is a terrific, quiet neighborhood that is only 9 miles off 61st street in Galveston.

Great place for small leadership retreat

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our small (10 member) leaders retreat. The beach house is located in a well kept quiet community close to Pirates beach. The sleeping accommodations suited us perfectly. We were able to use the available HDMI port on the large flat screen TV to host our power point presentations in a comfortable environment. I appreciate being able to use a place of this quality and price for just one night. Bedrooms are located on the main and upper floors. This is nice if stairs are an issue for some of your party members.

I would caution the owners to smooth out the booking process. They have reasons for their flexible, organic approach to booking but it leaves the requester feeling a little unsettled. Our team was considering other options at one point… in the end, we made the better choice using this place.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

I am a picky renter, and we couldn't have been more pleased with this home. The owners made everything from reservations through check-in smooth and easy. The house is in an upscale, quiet neighborhood. It is spacious and well-maintained, with plenty of parking for all our cars. The kitchen is spotless and well-supplied with ample utensils. The lovely bedrooms and bathrooms comfortably accommodated 3 adults and 8 older teenagers. The large back patio with lounging sofas and a patio table and chairs is a perfect place to relax, listen to the surf, and catch the Gulf breeze. I highly recommend this home for one night or a full week or a full season.

Beautiful Home (Close to the Beach)

  • 5 of 5

Our Family (4 generations) enjoyed this home a lot. It is about a 10-25 minute drive to all of Galveston's attractions. Kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals. The outside of the home is a little worn but the inside is immaculate. I personally slept on one of the bunk beds and was very comfortable. We enjoyed walking to the beach, watching movies in the living room, playing cards at the table, and watching fireworks (fluke thing) from the balcony. The owner was very helpful and friendly even when we accidentally turned on the security alarm, whoops. The kids bunk room was so nice to have with 3 small children. I think this place deserves 5 stars for the inside alone! (The only qualifier I give is because of the exterior needing some maintenance.) I would gladly stay here again, in a heartbeat.

Nice house in a great neighborhood close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at The Screendoor. It is in a great neighborhood and the house itself is very nice. We all thought the beds were very comfortable, in fact we found all the furniture to be high quality. It is spacious and could have slept more than 10 adults easily (with some kids thrown in there, you'd be comfortable up to 14 or more). The beach and private access is just a short walk straight down the street. Getting the TV to work was a bit of a comedy of errors. There are literally 15 remotes to choose from, but the owner was very responsive and helped us get it working in no time. The pros far outweighed the cons on this home. I could have gone 5 stars except for a few fairly minor issues:

1) The exterior is starting to show signs of age. The balcony, gate, and front door have a fair amount of wood rot and the screens were torn up on some of the windows.

2) The back deck is great, but the outside TV as noted in the description was not there. (I mention this because we were looking forward to watching the football game out there).

3) No paper towels or toilet paper. This is something that really costs the owner next to nothing to provide and was just kind of an annoyance that it wasn't there.

Don't let those few things change your mind about staying at The Screendoor. We all thought the house was great. It is definitely one of the nicest homes I've stayed at in Galveston.
