Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I just retired from the Department of the Navy and my wife is a retired 4th grade school teacher. We both enjoy traveling, sailing and cruising and being close to the water. We like to relax in the warm tropics with friendly people, good music and a nice cold drink. Talking, story telling, laughing, dancing and having fun with other people or sometimes just sitting quietly and reading a good book are our ideas of fun. We enjoy meeting new people and have found the folks in Texas to be friendly and charming. We both like warm weather and frequently vacation in the Caribbean. My wife likes being in the sun and I like being in the shade. This house accommodates us both nicely.

Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
Everyone always asks us, 'Why Galveston?' when you live in California with its beautiful beaches and great climate. Candidly, Galveston is one of the hidden gems in coastal living. We wanted beach property that was not too far from a major city because we are used to having large city amenities and access whenever we want it with Houston just 45 miles away from our home in Galveston, yet retaining a bit of small town charm, the location was ideal. We wanted a home that was modern but beachy and close to the beach without being on the beach with the additional risk for damage from hurricanes like Ike. Pirates Beach is upscale but relaxed with a good balance of rules that makes it a nice family friendly place to visit and live. We find the people to be friendly and whether one is going to the Spot for hamburgers or to Rudy & Paco's for a gourmet meal we have had fun. Now with Waterman's open and close by we have another great place to go for evening entertainment. We looked at many Galveston locations and properties before finally settling on this property. The big problem that many properties have as you go further west is that they are too far from town and we didn't want to spend our vacation driving when we wanted to go out for dinner or a movie. We felt Jamaica Beach was as far west as we would consider. We hope that those of you that choose to rent our home enjoy it and take care of it as it is our home. During the summer rental period, we travel.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are very few single story homes in Pirates Beach and that was a major attraction for us. For those with elderly or handicapped guests in their party that cannot maneuver stairs it is the difference between being included or excluded from the group activities. With a large great room, guests can easily socialize together. A real bonus is the private elevator so even though the homes are all built on stilts, there is no need to use the stairs for those less capable or when loaded down with supplies.
