About John or Karen Griffith

I just retired from the Department of the Navy and my wife is a retired 4th grade school teacher. We both enjoy traveling, sailing and cruising and being close to the water. We like to relax in the warm tropics with friendly people, good music and a nice cold drink. Talking, story telling, laughing, dancing and having fun with other people or sometimes just sitting quietly and reading a good book are our ideas of fun.

We enjoy meeting new people and have found the folks in Texas to be friendly and charming. We both like warm weather and frequently vacation in the Caribbean. My wife likes being in the sun and I like being in the shade. This house accommodates us both nicely.

John or Karen Griffith purchased this house in 2010

Why John or Karen Griffith chose Galveston

Everyone always asks us, 'Why Galveston?' when you live in California with its beautiful beaches and great climate. Candidly, Galveston is one of the hidden gems in coastal living. We wanted beach property that was not too far from a major city because we are used to having large city amenities and access whenever we want it with Los Angeles just 45 miles away from our home in San Clemente California. With Galveston's close proximity to Houston, it made it ideal. We wanted a home that was modern but beachy and close to the beach without being on the beach with the additional risk for damage from hurricanes like Ike. Pirates Beach is upscale but relaxed with a good balance of rules that makes it a nice family friendly place to visit and live. We find the people to be friendly and whether one is going to the Spot for hamburgers or to Rudy & Paco's for a gourmet meal we have had fun. Now with Waterman's open and close by we have another great place to go for evening entertainment. We looked at many Galveston locations and properties before finally settling on this property. The big problem that many properties have as you go further west is that they are too far from town and we didn't want to spend our vacation driving when we wanted to go out for dinner or a movie. We felt Jamaica Beach was as far west as we would consider.

We hope that those of you that choose to rent our home enjoy it and take care of it as it is our home away from home and one we may well retire to if conditions permit.

What makes this house unique

There are very few single story homes in Pirates Beach and that was a major attraction for us. For those with elderly or handicapped guests in their party that cannot maneuver stairs it is the difference between being included or excluded from the group activities. With a large great room, guests can easily socialize together. A real bonus is the private elevator so even though the homes are all built on stilts, there is no need to use the stairs for those less capable or when loaded down with supplies.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for a one week family getaway in May 2014 for us, our two boys (ages 2 and 4), my mother, my aunt and my 90 year old grandmother. The location of the house was perfect - on a quiet cul-de-sac one block from the beach. It was close enough to the beach that we got the salty breeze and view, but far enough that I wasn't stressing about the safety of my 2 year old who can't yet swim. The house definitely exceeded our expectations and was full of touches that I didn't expect in a rental - like a garage fully stocked with beach toys, towels, a wagon, chairs, etc. and a closet full of games and toys which our kids absolutely loved (especially the Legos!). The owners have put meticulous thought into making sure all of your needs are met, so literally all you have to do is show up with your swimsuit and clothes, make a quick run to the grocery store, and enjoy! The elevator and golf cart were perfect for getting my grandmother in and out of the house and down to the beach. We will be renting this gem of a house again!

Our goal is to make your stay as pleasant as possible and to reduce the amount of hassle that vacationing with a larger group can entail.

We offer repeat guests a discount and encourage guests to return often!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic house. Had a great girls' weekend and my family joined for a night. Perfect for both groups. Great to have all bedrooms on one level. PLENTY of sand toys in the garage. Very well-stocked kitchen. Very true to the photos. You can't go wrong with this property. Owners were easy to deal with, very responsive.

Fabulous Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in several houses in Pirates Beach in the last few years and this was the best one yet! The house is one block from the beach and has beach views from the living room and deck. It is very hard to find a house with 4 bedrooms on the same floor (it is all on one story) which is what we needed for two families with small children. The decor was very nice and the kitchen fully stocked. The golf cart is a must and there are enough beach toys that you can leave yours at home. And the access to apple TV was an added bonus. We will definatly rent again!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
2 families with 4 young children thoroughly enjoyed this house and its amenities. We took advantage of renting the house's golf cart and that made it easy to transport items to the beach. The house is exactly like what the photos describe. We enjoyed the ocean breeze on the patio and the openness of the main living areas. We quickly realized how great the outdoor shower was so all the kids could come into the house clean.
The owner was helpful with all our questions. I would highly recommend this property and Galveston to families looking for a relaxing vacation spot.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome vacation! The house was everything as advertised and more.
Wonderful open layout, and the door between sleeping and living areas was almost soundproof, allowing babies to nap or go to bed at night while adults visited or played games. Everything we needed for cooking, enjoying the beach or just relaxing was provided, and everything was top quality (loved cooking on the range) The whole property is well maintained and so clean we were comfortable letting the baby crawl on the floor. The Griffith's were easy to work with and
went out of their way to be sure everything was satisfactory. Everyone agreed it was the best vacation rental we'd ever had and look forward to staying there again.

Owner's Response: It was nice to have these guests return. They were especially helpful to me last year when the handle on the range broke and they helped me put in the new range. We enjoyed some nice conversation and I am pleased that everything was working perfectly for them.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect house for a beach vacation! Everything was perfect, so clean--it was wonderful to feel comfortable about the baby crawling on the floor! The furniture was perfect, the beds extremely comfortable with high end linens. Everything you could possibly want in the kitchen was provided and we loved the floor plan, so open. The door connecting living section with bedrooms really made the bedroom area quiet so we could put the kids to sleep for a nap or at night and the adults could visit or play games in the living area. Everything we could possibly want was provided and the Griffith's were wonderful to work with. We would recommend this home to anyone, and are hoping to return. Thanks for the best vacation home ever.

Owner's Response: We have been very fortunate to have really nice guests and it really makes us happy to see that they had a nice stay. Our housekeeping service does an awesome job of keeping the place looking nice and spotlessly clean.

The layout of this home is one of the nicest most comfortable layouts and works well whether one or two guests or ten. Thank you all for your business and we hope to see you again.
