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
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.
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.
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!
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.
House was clean and fit the descriptions online. Nancy called me on the day we were to check in and told me that the television dish was not working, but she had a service technician scheduled for Saturday morning. This was important to us because we wanted to watch the A&M game Saturday afternoon. The Dish technician arrived around 11:30 and we were up with a new controller box by 12:30 and watched the Aggies beat Tennessee in double overtime (would not have wanted to miss this game)..
A comment I will make - there is a tree growing close to the house and its branches hit the siding all night long. This noise disturbed the light sleepers in the house.
Overall - we had a positive experience, will recommend this house and we will return.
This house is very well decorated and stocked with all you will need. Beautiful neighborhood and beautiful beach. Unfortunately the house is advertised as having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The description does not state that one of the bathrooms is down 17 stairs to the outside area under the house. This bathroom is located on the ground floor and meant to be used by those returning from the beach. It is not in the living quarters of the house. This is not what we contracted for and contacted the owner about it. This made our trip most uncomfortable for 4 ladies , 3 bathrooms are important to us. The owner's response to our phone call was verbally abusive, nasty, insulting and rude. This situation essentially ruined our trip. Additionally wi-fi was down when we arrived and did not get fixed for over 24 hours and the TV in the living room never did get fixed. But we did not want to contact owner regarding this issue for fear of encountering the same attitude we encountered regarding the bathroom Pirates Beach is lovely , I would recommend other properties in this area to investigate, not this one. Hopefully other owners are less caustic than this one.
Our friends and family had a blast it his house. It was clean, well kept and just as advertised. It was just a short walk to the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The owner was great to deal with and always responded if I had a concern or issue. I would gladly stay here again.
