About Nancy

I was born & raised in Houston, Texas. 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!

Nancy purchased this house in 2010

Why Nancy chose Galveston

My beach house is newly renovated & located in the prestigous Pirate's Beach community, (Galveston's premier area for vacation homes) where the beaches are private and well maintained. It's the best beach in Galveston, and vacationer's & 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 & various attractions without the seawall crowds. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're in the Pirates Beach community.

What makes this house unique

This home includes access to the Galveston Country club for golf, tennis, swimming pool & dining room privileges. It's only 150 yds to the beach, and the large yard is great for games & picnicing. Enjoy a day at the beach, grilling shrimp on the BBQ and having a glass of wine on the deck, relaxing in the gulf breeze or a round of golf at the country club followed by a snooze in the hammock.

Shangri-La

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from Shangri-La, and wanted to let you know how sad we were to leave! Your home is well decorated, well equipped, and quite clean. The full shade on the porch throughout the day was honestly our favorite feature, and one that we didn't notice on many other houses. Loved the neighborhood, but enjoyed the beach so much, we never took advantage of the club passes! Thanks again for telling me about this special place. We'd definitely recommend it!

Wonderful mini-vacation, enjoyed by all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful beach home! It was welcoming from the very start, and we liked it even more as time wore on. None of us wanted to leave, we all wanted another day or two, and that's said to be the sure sign of a wonderful vacation!

We genuinely enjoyed the stay and would most definitely consider staying there again. Everything was as expected, actually it was better than expected. The pictures were nice, but they definitely don't do it justice. I love the way you have it all decorated. It's so light, open, clean, and homey-feeling. We are even considering a copy-cat paint job with your aqua color for the den walls of our lake cabin. It grew on us so much, has a calming effect, all decorations blend well with it, and looks great in just about every light.

Everything we needed (and then some) was easily accessible, and the very short walk to the beach was most convenient. The convenience store is also very close, for any random items we thought of.

One of the favorite features enjoyed by all was the wrap-around deck. There was a constant breeze while we were there, and to see the water while reading, eating, visiting, even playing Legos or Barbies was most relaxing. It's wonderful that so much of it is covered, yet part of it is open for those who may desire the direct sun.

Thanks for a great stay!

We enjoyed the Shangri La beach house. The view from the 2nd floor deck was beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this beach to my friends and family.

Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, spotless home on stilts is located in a quiet neighborhood only a block from a nice sandy beach. The three bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds; the living room and kitchen area are open, making the house roomy. The kitchen is well-equipped; the dishes and utensils are easy to find. The large kitchen table is wonderful for a family feast; but the beautiful wrap-around deck on the second floor is the jewel in the perfect setting. The chairs are comfortable for watching the stars sparkle above, or for watching the soft white clouds slowly moving across an azure sky. This is the house for a truly memorable occasion.
