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 Galveston

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!


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

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

We were there over a full weekend and had a wonderful stay! The house is beautiful!! Views of the bay in every direction! Loved the fact we could just walk out the back and fish and jump in to cool off! Nice n peaceful in the evening for sitting out on the upper deck with a bottle of wine and your loved one and just soak it all in. Will definitely stay here again the next time we plan a weekend trip to Galveston!

Delightful July 4th!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was hot and frightful, but this house was so delightful! It's on a corner lot with a surprising northward view across the bay. The master bedroom is separate from the other two with a nice living/dining kitchen area in the middle of the house. It is nicely furnished, beds are comfortable, and all the appliances, fans, and air conditioners worked perfectly. We grilled fish, played games, and enjoyed a grandbaby. A weather inversion brought out nasty mosquitoes and seaweed on the beach, so we stayed inside, went to a few nice Galveston restaurants, and jogged in the early mornings. Heather was a great help in advance and we had no problems of any kind. I recommend this as a very good location, if you don't want to be right on the beach. Great for people with a boat or kayak.

Family Friendly OR Couple Cozy

  • 5 of 5

First, the location is perfect. You have an amazing little canal to fish off of or simply enjoy a few drinks at the end of the day. My daughters caught their first fish by the boat slip! The front and back patios give you a breathtaking view of sunset.

The house is updated, and more importantly well taken care of. The owner has really spent a lot of time and money maintaining and updating this house. Unlike many rentals this one feels warm and inviting - like you're staying at your family's beach house.

The kitchen is a great size to cook a meal and have little helpers assist without being under foot. I was in love with the fact that there were so many bathrooms, saved us lots of drama with two tween girls.

Simply put, you cannot find a more reasonable, clean, updated, and family friendly home with a grade A location than this!
