About the Property

4 Bedroom 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy a quiet beach retreat in our home. Pirates Lair is located in family friendly Pirates Beach just a short walk to the water. Our home is located on the last street to the west in Pirates making it quiet and private with little street traffic. This end of the beach is seldom crowded making it perfect for building sandcastles or just relaxing. Pirates Beach is close to town so anyone wanting to shop on the Strand or take in an event at The Grand Opera House will not have far to drive.

The interior of the home was completely updated in 2012 with a fresh coat of paint, new flooring (hardwood in the den) all new countertops, appliances and new tile showers in 2 of the bathrooms. We have maintained it well and it shows no wear.

The kitchen is fully equipped. The dining table seats 6 with space for 4 more at the bar. The living area has ample seating and includes a flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player.

There is an enclosed,outdoor shower under the house with hooks for towels. There are picnic tables and a charcoal grill for cooking your catch of the day.

Walk up the stairs and you find a comfortable deck with Adirondack chairs and and a table and 4 chairs for outdoor dining. There are also outdoor speakers connected to the stereo for your enjoyment.

All linens and towels are provided and we provide most paper products. The master bedroom has a private deck with seating provided.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We grew up on the island and still view it as 'home' even though we have not lived there since we went away to college. We love Galveston.

Why the Owner Chose Pirates Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
We chose this house for its' location. Pirates Beach has a family friendly, neighborhood feel to it and it is close enough to town to be convenient for shopping etc. We have great neighbors and everyone is friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has a great view of the beach. We also like that one of the bedrooms is like a private getaway for a family. It is 2 rooms with a bath and a small area in between. We call it the apartment.
