About Owner-Heather

This beach house has been in my family since it was built in the early 1980's. It was originally owned by my Great-Aunt and Uncle and my parents owned the home when they passed away. When my parents decided to sell, we decided to keep it in the family for future generations.

Owner-Heather purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner-Heather chose Pirates Cove

This property is unique due to our location. We are on the west end of Pirate's Cove neighborhood facing the bay, but also an end canal home so the views are breathtaking and the area is very quiet. You can enjoy your coffee from one of 2 decks in the morning and watch the gorgeous sunset off the front deck in the evening. Bring your family and friends and enjoy!

Very comfortable! Pretty view, breezy and pleasant out on the deck!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location. Drove 5 minutes to beach. Fished and crabbed off dock. Pleasant to sit out by dock and have a glass of wine or early morning coffee on top deck. Great neighborhood to walk in. Bedrooms and baths comfortable-used outside grill too for dinner one night.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Was just thinking of booking another stay in GALVESTON again and realized I never posted a review on this place. Rented this place a few years ago for a two week stay. Great place to stay! We caught specs and reds from the doc at night under the lights. Would definitely stay here again. Owner was great to work with as well.

BEAUTIFUL and so Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing, with beautiful views from the front and back patios. The neighborhood is so quite, peaceful and clean. It is a perfect place to take a walk or bike ride. There is not a lot of traffic which is very nice. It is a very comfy place with comfy beds. It is nicely decorated, clean and really feels like a home. I did not want leave and will for sure go back again. I highly recommend this place. Perfect location to any place in Galveston.

Beautiful setting..disappointingly DIRTY house

  • 1 of 5

Upon our arrival at this house we found trash, Bobbie pins on the floor, light bulb out in bathroom, large ball of black hair on the return air vent , months of accumulated dust on coffee table , and worst of all owners personal toothbrush and tooth brush holder CAKED with old toothpaste. Made me very nervous about the sheets! Owner refused to give back cleaning fee after making several excuses. Would NOT go back.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you feel the need to insult my home and your stay. Upon your immediate complaint, I asked for all the photos while you were at my home to see what the complaint was about. You had moved a basket that had a barely visible spec of dust, there were no pictures of the table you complained of, bobby pins or toothbrush...and I thanked you for changing the one light bulb that had gone out. There were no other pictures to correlate what your above comment states. I take pictures of my home prior to each arrival and request my guests to do the same to avoid any issues like this. Your pictures did not reflect what you are stating here and I have not had a complaint to date prior to your stay. I am sorry that you wanted the maid fee waived but inspection prior to your arrival and your pictures were not in line with your request. You were adamant about waiving the maid fee and it is in place for all guests. It is with regret that you feel this way but my pictures and NOTE I leave for all renters to immediately contact me with any problems so we can rectify them with pictures was not completed. Thank you, Heather
