I work for the Department of the Navy and my wife is a 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

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 and Orange County just 45 miles away from our home in 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 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 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.

Fabulous Beach House!

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
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

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
  • Submitted: Jul 2, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
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

  • Submitted: Jun 25, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
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.

Cute, Comfy, Clean

The Spoonbill House in Galveston is a great house for a family vacation or a group of friends. It has everything you will need to make your stay super comfortable. The house is well maintained and spotless clean. There are extra towels and linens, dishes, pots and pans as well as little extras like bottled water and shampoo. It is only a short walk to the beach and a few minutes drive to the Seal Wall. You will appreciate the comfortable beds, large porch area. and the overall decor of the house. The owner, John, cares about his renters. He called shortly after our arrival to make sure everything was satisfactory. We will definitely be returning to this house.
