Why Erin Bethancourt chose Pirates Beach
I have so many fond memories of spending time at Pirates Beach with my family growing up. My grandparents would rent a house for a week or 2 in the summer and take me along. We would hunt for seashells, walk to the general store for the newspaper and a Fudgebomb :), fish in the surf and play in the water. At night they would gather around the table to eat fresh seafood and play a game of cards. Now as parents of 4 boys, my husband and I wanted to share these experiences with them. We had been renting a beach house with family and friends for the past several years but decided it was time to invest in our own house. And with our kids' grandparents living just a couple of blocks away, it seemed like an even better idea. We will look forward to many more memories in the years to come and are happy to share our home for your family to make some special beach memories of your own.

Beautiful home! Very warm and welcoming ☺️
The only hiccup we had was the WiFi. We couldn’t get it to connect to any of our devices. Other than that the house was perfect!
Great beach rental!
The house was clean and had plenty of space for two families including kids. The master suite is enormous and has a great balcony. The living areas wer nice with lots of natural light. Quick walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again!
We enjoyed our stay. Everything was as advertised. Great property.
My family and myself were very pleased with our stay, great place, great home. We loved it!!!
A wonderful home for your Galveston stay
We have been renting a beach house in Galveston for 23 years now for our annual family get together so we've experienced all sorts of homes that can differ from the 20 or so pictures you really have as your choice to rent sight unseen. You'll find this house to be very comfortable (home feel), nicely decorated and with plenty of room for large families to have some breathing room. The kitchen area is very large and is well stocked for all your cooking needs. Also, small gas grill provided downstairs has direct line to gas supply vs. propane tank so that's a plus if you like to cook out burgers, dogs, etc. The deck has high two sets of high quality/comfortable table and chairs - not the cheap ones some homes may have; also the sun rises facing the deck side of the home but then but late afternoon the deck is shaded so nice to sit out later in the afternoon and sip on your favorite beverage. The home is on a small cul-da-sac and has much more parking than other homes we've rented since 3 lane driveway which can easily hold 7-8 vehicles. All windows have the electric storm shutters too so everyone can sleep in if desired in dark rooms. I highly recommend this home for a great vacation with family and friends. P.S. Don't forget the golf cart rental as great to have to buzz around the neighborhood, pick up groceries or a pizza from the stores across from the street or trips back and forth to beach!
Great Weekend get away
Great place to stay. Everyone enjoyed the place and it provided everything we needed This was our second time staying there and it was just as great as the first time. Owners are great to work with Definitely will stay there again
Our beach house is located on the West End of Galveston Island in the Pirates Beach community. Away from the busyness of the city, you will enjoy the slow pace of island living at its best.
Awake to the sound of seagulls or the crash of the waves. Being just a couple blocks from the beach, its only a short walk before you can be lounging in your beach chair on the sand. (Don't forget to rent a golf cart to make getting around even easier. Its the 'thing to do' these days. Golf carts have become part of everyday life in this community.) While you are relaxing, the kids will love playing in the surf, riding waves or making sandcastles.
Looking to wet a hook? Galveston offers a variety of fishing options. When the trout are running, fishing right out in the surf is a favorite spot. Catch the best speckled trout with a cork and live shrimp. There are also local boats that can be chartered for a day trip in the bay. Or head down to the Galveston Fishing Pier, which is open 24 hours a day.
If you are ready for a break from the beach, you are just a short drive from other popular island activities. Head over to the Galveston Country Club for a swim in the pool, a round of golf or a game of tennis. Just ask and we can get you a guest pass so that you have access to these facilities (additional cost applies). Check out the new Pleasure Pier for exciting rides and carnival fun. Challenge your family to a game of mini golf at Magic Carpet Golf and then enjoy a Hawaiian shaved ice afterwards. Stroll the shops at the Strand and stay for dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants. Explore the rainforest and aquarium at Moody Gardens.
These are just some of the many activities that you can enjoy during a vacation to Galveston Island!
