About Nancy

I live in Houston and wanted a peaceful refuge to escape the heat and congestion of the big city. This house was perfect... the view is fabulous and it feels like I'm on the beach without leaving my deck. It's so close, that I can hear the waves, the seagulls & beach lovers without ever leaving my house. :) I have decided to share my beautiful home with caring guests that appreciate upscale furnishings.

Nancy purchased this house in 2009

Why Nancy chose Pirates Beach

In Feb 2010 I renovated this home in a 'Cape Cod meets Key West' style. The home has a green belt behind it which is a protected area and gives the location a more private feeling than the typical beach home. You can lay in the master bed and look over the dunes to the water. Located in Pirates' Beach, the house is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're at this house.

What makes this house unique

This home is ideal for two families or a group/family where some of the guests prefer a bit more privacy as it has the added benefit of a self-enclosed downstairs where the 4th bedroom and 3rd bath are located. Since there is no inside staircase, the room downstairs is insulated from the noise in the upstairs and likewise, the upper floor is insulated from noise downstairs. The downstairs is accessible through its own outside door.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Steps away from the beach and close to town. The host was perfect! She sent us great info and was easy to communicate and work with. The house was perfect! Clean, up to date, functional, roomy (the beach toys and chairs were a nice touch). Simply all-around perfect! We enjoyed our stay very much (2 families each with 1 toddler + 2 separate, single adults).

Amazing Location, Quiet and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the ability to visit in the spacious living areas and the short walk to the beach was perfect. The view from the master bedroom deck is amazing. The cool breeze at night and the star gazing really completed our stay!
