Advantages of Owner Chose Pirate's Beach: I purchased my Galveston home as a relaxing getaway for myself & family. I have stocked & decorated it as an 'upscale but relaxed' weekend getaway . It is such a beautiful home & perfect refuge for enjoying the sea breezes & beach fun that I decided to share it with caring tenants. Come enjoy a break from the city heat, traffic & stress. You will feel your blood pressure drop when you step out of the car!

It's only a 1500 yds walk to the beach and the house comes with beach chairs, beach umbrella & beach toys. The large yard complete with white picket fence, has a spacious covered patio with a gas grill, beautiful patio furniture, hammock & swing. Enjoy a day at the beach, grill shrimp on the BBQ and have a glass of wine on the deck, relaxing in the gulf breeze. Tomorrow hit the strand or play a round of golf at the country club followed by a snooze in the hammock. You will love this home.

Location, location, location: This newly built house (less than 6yrs old), is located in Pirate's Beach, Galveston's premier area for vacation homes, where the beaches are private and well maintained. It's the best beach in Galveston, and vacationers & families love this area of Galveston. Pirates' Beach is 8 minutes from Moody Gardens & Schlitterbahn. It's the perfect location giving you quick access to the Strand, restaurants & various attractions without the seawall crowds. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're in the Pirates Beach community.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We just checked out of Molly's yesterday after a nearly month long stay and i know i speak for the whole group when i say we miss it already. Our stay was perfect. The house was clean and well taken care of. Everything worked and we had zero issues while staying. It is a beautiful home and the owners are very accommodating. They even dropped us off additional charcoal. I cannot say enough, how much we enjoyed our stay. As a team of traveling IT workers we usually stay in hotels. I know i will never be happy in a hotel again. This property allowed all of us to congregate as we pleased and still have room for our own individual space and personal time. Should our work bring us back to Galveston for an extended period of time we would surely rent this property again. It was perfect.

Great decor and fully stocked!

  • 5 of 5
Molly's Dune was so nice. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, blender, etc. We cooked a lot and we found everything that we needed. The decor was so nice and beachy. The lay-out of the house was nice. Plenty of room and the beds were all nice and comfy. Good quality furniture throughout the house. We would stay here again. There is a walk to the beach. We always just drove and parked right near the beach so that we could walk a short distance with all of our beach stuff. I got the feeling that the owners were very gracious and didn't mind sharing their stuff. You don't always find that! The AC worked really well throughout the house. That is really important in Galveston. What a great place to stay!!

Great stay at Pirates Beach

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great stay at Molly's Dune. It was extremely clean and welcoming. The house is minutes from the beach and the ability to use the country club swimming pool was great for the kids. I would recommend this house to anybody looking for a vacation home in Galveston.

Molly's Dune is Wonderful!

My family had a wonderful stay in this Pirate's beach house. The house was well maintained and had many useful amenities. We especially liked the ability to use the Galveston C. C. We also liked the fact that all the rooms were on one floor. There is even a gate that goes across the top of the stairs. We didn't have to worry about our little ones going down the stairs from the porch. It is a 5 min walk to the beach, but not far at all. Beach chairs, toys, and a wagon are all provided. We enjoyed the outdoor shower especially after returning from the beach with our little ones. We enjoyed the covered porch as well as the downstairs to hang out. I would definitely go back with my family again. We had a fabulous time!
