About the property

Perfect getaway for family or friends wanting to relax at the beach.

Ahh! Feel your blood pressure drop as you cross the Causeway and know you are only 20 minutes from settling into your wonderful vacation home. Located in the exclusive Pirates Beach community of Galveston, Texas, you’ll find all the amenities you need at this bright and lovely home called Coconut Villa where my home is your home.

Two bedrooms and one bathroom downstairs sleep four. The front bedroom offers a queen bed and a dresser housing a TV inside. The back bedroom offers a double bed, located at the end of the hall next to a full size laundry room. The master suite is upstairs with a 4-poster queen bed, an armoire housing another TV and a large bathroom. All beds are extremely comfortable, featuring memory foam mattress toppers with quality bedding and down/feather pillows. The daybed in the living room is also very comfortable with available bedding to sleep one, so the total number this home sleeps is seven. Perfect for families or friends gathering for some beach time.

Two decks offer plenty of room to enjoy the coastal breezes with peak-a-boo ocean views. The front deck faces the cul de sac and is great for relaxing in a rocking chair and watching the neighborhood activities. The larger side deck offers a gas grill, dining table for al fresco meals, as well as pairs of chaise lounges and adirondacks for your enjoyment. From sunbathing in the day to grilling in the evening to incredible stargazing at night, you’ll find yourself out there a lot! The large fenced yard is lushly landscaped with roses and tropical bushes and there is an outdoor shower head below with hot and cold water for rinsing off when you return from the beach. Vacant lots on either side of this very large lot offer more privacy than usual.

Back inside, the living, dining and kitchen areas are all spacious and flow together with lots of windows, plenty of light and hardwood floors throughout. A large kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a delicious meal and set a fabulous table! This home was NOT set up as a rental so there are very nice and plentiful pots and pans, cooking utensils, dishes and glasses. I have cooked and hosted many holiday meals and dinner parties here. There is even a countertop rotisserie which makes the best ribeye roast you’ll ever taste! The china cabinet is filled with beautiful stemware for your adult beverage enjoyment. The dining room table can seat up to 8 with comfortable banana leaf chairs should you want to linger. And if you choose to go out, you’ll have my recommendations for the best places in Galveston for brunch, happy hour and dinner from my 10+ years on the Island!

The armoire in the living room houses a large TV with Comcast Cable, a DVD player and iPod docking station for your entertainment as well as a selection of board games. Turn over the top of the end table next to the sofa and you’ll find a lovely backgammon board. And for all your electronic devices, high-speed wireless internet will keep you well connected. At the other end of the spectrum, ceiling fans in every room allow you to open the screened windows in spring and fall and enjoy nature’s sounds and breezes.

Access to the pool and golf course at Galveston Country Club can be arranged for an additional fee as well as small pets on a case-by-case basis. Golf carts, surf and paddle boards, kayaks and canoes can all be rented by the day, weekend or week and delivered right to the home. This home is best suited for 6 adults or two couples with a few children as there are no bunk beds. The maximum number of guest is eight.

Enjoy your stay at Coconut Villa, coastal living with all the creature comforts of your home.

About Mary Ann

I grew up in Houston and spent many summer days in Galveston. I live in Dallas now and love having a place on the Island that can be enjoyed year 'round.

Mary Ann purchased this house in 2005

Why Mary Ann chose Pirates Beach

The Pirates Beach Community is a safe, friendly, family-oriented neighborhood on the west end of the Island and I have lots of friends here!

What makes this house unique

Coconut Villa is ideally situated at the end of a cul de sac and is one of the largest lots in the subdivision. With vacant lots on either side, it offers more privacy than most. When I bought the home, I updated it with all new doors and windows because I love natural light and rarely turn on a light until the evening!

Pirates Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Mary Ann's home in Pirate's beach with 2 other couples and we had a great time! Kitchen was WELL stocked with everything we needed. Front deck got a great breeze! Was really nice to sit out on the deck and enjoy the afternoon while we grilled. It was very pleasent in the early evenings, and that's saying something for a Texas summer! Very private area of Pirates and not far from the beach. The home has lovely antique furniture and comfortable beds. The master suite upstairs was an added bonus for our friends with a 4 month old! Great communication from host.

Beautiful clean place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful for our family's vacation before school! It was spacious and the beds were so comfortable! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you'd need! The only downfall was the mosquitos!

Fully stocked house

  • 4 of 5

It is very apparent the owners love and take care of this home. It is fully stocked with spices, dishes, soaps, shampoo, lotions, beach towels, beach shoes, and just about anything else you can think of. Some of the furnishings has an older, antique type feel to them. Some of the furniture was a bit wobbly (end table and a bar stool). The home swayed a bit at times either due to wind or people moving around. Not sure if that is normal in a beach home on stilts as this is our first time staying in one. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because of the location. While it may only be a 5 minute walk, it's not ideal access.

One thing to note about pet-friendly... Owner has to approve your pet and pet fee was $150 for a 15 pound dog for 4 nights.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the amenities in the home! The houses on stilts do move a bit unlike homes built on the ground. It is two long blocks to the beach but there are places to park cars at the end of the subdivision streets if guests want to drive, which is recommended if carrying chairs, coolers, etc.

very lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We didn't need to plan for as large a group this year so this lovely house filled the bill. The owner, Mary Ann, was very pleasant and easy to work with. It's close enough to the city of Galveston to easily get to all the sights and attractions but such a nice place to come back to. Other times a trip to the beach took only minutes! Coconut Villa was a neat, clean and very comfortable place to spend a family vacation.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Coconut Villa was perfect for our extended weekend over Labor Day. There was plenty of space for 4 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs inside the house and the beach was nearby. You can walk to the beach, but it was easier to jump into our truck and go. If you had a golf cart it would be perfect!

The house itself was spotless. It's well taken care of and clean. The kitchen has all the pots, pans, utensils, etc that you will need. I would recommend bringing your own spices. There are some stocked...I just prefer to use my own.

There was 1 downfall. The mosquitos were ruthless. Bring the heavy duty, deep woods Off! and the citronella candles.

All in all, it was a great place, pet friendly, and easy to get to. I expect we will be back.
