Please let us know how many pets will be staying, 1-2 are okay but anymore than that we will have to consider.

About Edgar Alcocer


My wife and I are teachers living near NASA, we have a small family consisting of our daughter, 2 dogs, and a turtle. We love the beach and everything about it!

Edgar Alcocer purchased this house in 2010

Why Edgar Alcocer chose Galveston

We always wanted a home in Galveston to enjoy the beach, when we don't use it we want others to enjoy the house just like we do. It's two blocks away from the beach, driving distance from theme parks in Galveston. Less than a mile away from Pleasure Pier.

What makes this house unique

It's really close to the beach, in fact everything seems close by just walking, there is also a bike rental store at the end of the street, fun for our family. It was a mess before, the house was hit badly when Hurricane Ike passed by but then it was for sale and we decided to buy and fix it up. As mentioned, everything is new since it's completely renovated. It

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It fit us just fine. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. The only issue we had was that it did not have a tub for the kiddos, but we managed with the shower. A very short walk to the beach, which was not to crowded. The street is quiet, not much traffic, and the neighborhood seems nice. Would definitely stay there again!

Pelican Cove is great!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little house very close to the beach (only a 5 minute walk). We had 4 adults staying for the weekend and the house was perfect for our needs. Great bedrooms and kitchen and the owners were very helpful. We look forward to staying here again on our next trip!

My family of 5 plus my parents and our 2 dogs fit comfortably in this home. My brother got married and that was the reason for our stay. It was convenient because it was close to port. It is also walking distance to the beach which we got to enjoy for a little bit. Will definitely have to come back to visit again!

Nice neighborhood and beautiful home. Very close to the beach, pier, and fireworks.

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. We had such a relaxing stay and lots of room for our family of 6. Beautifully decorated and everything you need for a beach visit. We appreciated the washer/dryer to clean our clothes before we continued our vacation in another state. You could add a small broom so visitors could clean the sand from the floor during their stay. Enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you!
