Why Jennifer chose Galveston

We chose this property as a place where our family can have a life time of fun and exciting memories made.

What makes this house unique

Hands down, the absolute best feature of this house is the rooftop deck. You can see the waves roll in on the beach from one side and the bay on the other. At night you can stargaze for hours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Things are great! The house is absolutely perfect and everyone enjoyed the beach. We couldn't ask for a better family vacation. We are last minute folks and feel very fortunate to have found a house as nice as yours. If the opportunity arises we will definitely be back!

A Wonderfull Week

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The keys arrived on time. The entire house was emaculate. Every thing we needed was there. We had leased the house 20 years ago for a month for 3 or 4 summers.The location only one block down the street from the beach was ideal for us then and now with our current 4 year old grandson. Having the entire family there brought back so many very pleasant memories. The beach is still wonderful -- close ,wide, and not crowded and safe. We could leave thing there even over night with no problem. The forth floor terrace is unequalled and fantastic. The neighbors were pleasant and quiet. The landlords were very helpful.

All in all a wonderful vacation and we hope to return next year.

We enjoyed our stay at Pelican's nest. The multiple decks and views were very relaxing. The short walk to the beach was great. We would definitly stay again.

The house is only a short 2 minute walk to the beach but you can see the ocean from windows in the living room and on the porch. The house was clean, well stocked kitchen, redone bathrooms. I would go there again!!!

Great home and location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home at Pirates Beach. The location (a block from the beach) was perfect for our group. We found the home to be very clean, well furnished and well stocked with linens, towels and kitchenware. Our plans are to rent from the owners again in the fall and we can't wait.

Not bad but not likely to stay again.

  • 2 of 5

We understand a vacation house is a valuable asset, however, the video cameras all around the residence definitely makes you feel like you are being watched and with kids on the vacation, this house was a little bothersome. Felt like we were being watched. Outside shower was not very clean to the point we would not use it. Many insect issues but owner did resolve. Owner pretty nitpicky about penalty fees and extra charges and we left the house very neat and paid the full cleaning fee however portion of security deposit was withheld. Caution about arriving early even if house is vacant--not like a hotel, you will be charged for each additional hour if you enter the house earlier than posted. Location was good though and we would go back to this beach if not this house.

Owner's Response: It's surprising to see this less than shining review from this traveler. The note with the returned keys was glowing, "Thanks so very much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a lovely time! Regards, Jennifer." It is irresponsible of a guest to show up unannounced 4 hours prior to check-in and enter the home and leaving damaged comforters upon exiting. There are many reasons check-in is 4pm: 1. Prior guests need to check out. Some request more time. 2. The cleaning crew needs adequate time to prepare the home between guests. One could be walking in on previous guests or their mess if entering the home prior to check-in. This is a secondary home and the insurance company requires cameras on the exterior to sustain a secure property. The security feature is beneficial for the property and guests alike. It is no different if you were to stay at a hotel. Our home is situated in a coastal area. It is very difficult to monitor and remediate all the bugs outdoors. We do, however, have regular extermination services to the home to do what we can to keep any unwanted guests at bay. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the property and have copious reviews attesting to how clean and beautiful our home is. We want everyone to arrive to a nicely appointed, pristinely cleaned, beautiful home. As the homeowner, we do everything in our power to provide all guests a fantastic experience when staying at our home.

The property is convenient to get to and also to get to the beach. It is equipped with all the conveniences of home and well cared for. A place to share fun and quiet time together and make some treasured memories. This is definitely a property to revisit!
