This beautiful, privately owned beach home is ideal for family get-togethers or a reunion of old friends.

About Nancy

I was born & raised in Houston, Texas. I purchased my Galveston home as a relaxing getaway for myself & family. I have stocked & decorated it as an 'upscale but relaxed' weekend getaway. It is such a beautiful home & perfect refuge for enjoying the sea breezes & beach fun that I decided to share it with caring tenants. Come enjoy a break from the city heat, traffic & stress. You will feel your blood pressure drop when you step out of the car!

Nancy purchased this house in 2010

Why Nancy chose Pirates Beach

My beach house is newly renovated & located in the prestigous Pirate's Beach community, (Galveston's premier area for vacation homes) where the beaches are private and well maintained. It's the best beach in Galveston, and vacationer's & families love this area of Galveston. Pirates' Beach is 8 minutes from Moody Gardens & Schlitterbahn. It's the perfect location giving you quick access to the Strand & various attractions without the seawall crowds. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're in the Pirates Beach community.

What makes this house unique

This home includes access to the Galveston Country club for golf, tennis, swimming pool & dining room privileges. It's only 150 yds to the beach, and the large yard is great for games & picnicing. Enjoy a day at the beach, grilling shrimp on the BBQ and having a glass of wine on the deck, relaxing in the gulf breeze or a round of golf at the country club followed by a snooze in the hammock.

Great location & a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay here. Beautiful, well appointed, very clean house; (great mattresses too); a very, very short walk to beach which is never crowded; owner is wonderful to work with. Rental includes privileges to Galveston Country Club which is just a very short drive. (Great pool & beautiful golf course; good food too). Waterman's Restaurant is also nearby and we think it is one of Galveston's best. We would highly recommend this property!

Nancy's Shangri La

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at this beach house. It's nicely appointed, clean and comfortable, with every thing we needed. Plenty of room to spare for the 5 of us older folks who like to spread out. Cooked out on the grill each night and it was very relaxing to have coffee on the porch/patio while watching the sun rise each morning. A great way to relax and have some fun for a weekend. The property owner was very pleasant and helpful with the arrangements. We definitely want to be repeat customers but next time it will have to be longer than 2 days. We were not ready to leave. We would definitely recommend this vacation home.
