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


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

The pelican cove our first visit to galveston

  • 4 of 5

Just as advertised. Small cottage with small living and kitchen area and 3 good sized bedrooms. Parking enough for our 2cars barely. Fenced yard tiny with 2 sitting areas. Crossing busy street to beach a little scary with a child but 2 blocks easy walk. Good location to historic areas and pier. Clothesline and working washer would have been helpful. All in all house itself is nice but neighborhood has a lot of foot traffic next door all hours and some poorly maintained homes. I hope this improves for owners sake since he obviously cares for his property. We were very comfortable at The Pelican Cove and beach area was nice!

We had a great visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 greatly enjoyed our visit to Galveston and our stay in Pelican Cove. My three kids are all young adults/teenagers and do not enjoy sharing a bed, so finding a three bedroom/two bath where no one was stuck in a queen size bed with a sibling or on a fold out couch was a plus! The location was great- we enjoyed an easy 5-6 minute walk to the beach, or 5 minutes in the other direction to a corner grocery store, or ten minutes easy walk to ShyKatz Bakery for coffee. I walked three blocks on Sunday to Coastal Community Church which was being held at Austin Middle School. Such a convenient location! We loved how well equipped the house was- I only wish there were a cookie sheet! We loved using the boogie boards and umbrella and chairs provided, too. Thank you so much for a great vacation!

It was a very beautiful home! Everything was included! Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week. The bedrooms were a good size, and the living room was very tight, but we fit just fine. This was one of the best vacation rentals, we have ever stayed in.

Nice clean house close the seawall, strand, restaurants, and activities.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy 3 bedroom with plenty of space for our family of 5 and everyone had a bed. The house was clean and had all the essentials. The seawall and beach were only a couple of blocks away. 20-30 minute walk to the strand. Plenty of restaurants nearby. It was a good location to stay close to lots of attractions. Edgar was very responsive before, during, and after our stay. We had no issues. I would have no hesitation staying again.
