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 4 yrs 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.

Wonderful time!

We had a wonderful time at Molly's Dune. It was a perfect home for a relaxing vacation with our two small children. There was plenty of space inside. The home had everything we could have needed including kitchen and beach items and everything was in great condition. It was a quiet and peaceful trip. We spent afternoons reading on the beautiful covered porch while the kids napped inside. Evenings we cooked on the grill while watching our two year old play happily in the fenced in yard and swinging on the lovely porch swing to put the baby to sleep. We look forward to returning next summer!

Relaxing stay

We really enjoyed our stay at Molly's Dune. The house was beautiful, clean and laid out well enough that we were able to host Father's Day with our extended family. We had enough room for several families to spend the day with all our dads. Nancy was very gracious and was available for any questions and had everything organized beforehand so that we knew what to do, what to expect and what to bring for our stay. This was very helpful to us because this was our first time to rent a beach house. I would suggest you either bring or rent a golf cart for trips to beach (we brought our own) because it is just a bit too far to walk and carry your beach stuff.

Bright and Cheerful, Relaxing and Comfortable

My family of six, including three twenty-somethings and one significant other, enjoyed the tasteful comfort of Molly's Dune in May of 2013. Everyone slept great due to quality bedding and beds. Owners are very thoughtful in terms of outfitting the house with all the little comforts of home that you can do without but appreciate all the same. The house was well-maintained and attractively decorated, with everything mechanical in tip-top shape. Walk to the beach was several minutes long, which wasn't a problem, though we drove once or twice in order to bring lots of "stuff". We especially enjoyed the large second story deck around the front of the house - MANY great places to sit and read which we all took advantage of. Would love to return to Molly's Dune soon!!

Great Family Destination

This home was perfect for our family. Clean, very kid friendly. Gated outdoor area so kids could play without fearing they would run out into street. Hammock and outdoor shower were very handy. Large outdoor patio area which could also be gated closed. This was a great plus as our 1 year old could hang outside on the deck with us without being at risk of falling down the stairs. TV in all rooms, white noise machine in all rooms, Wifi. Close to beach. Outdoor grill. Quiet neighborhood. A perfect place to stay!
