PELICAN'S PERCH -FAMILY FUN BEACH BUNGALOW WITH GREAT RATES!!

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

Three bedrooms and 2 baths -Sleeps 6+

Pelican's Perch is a cozy 1000 ft. renovated 3 bed and 2 bath cottage located on the west end of Galveston (8 miles west of 61st street). The beach is a less than a 4 minute walk down a quiet street. The best part of Palm Beach is that it's a quiet beach community so you don't get the wild noise and traffic like other areas. This is one of the best budget house rentals on the beach side for those needing to get away from the your hectic life on the mainland. Central air and heat just added 2-14.

THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. You must be 25 or older to rent and you can NOT rent it and then let minors use the house for a party or you will be asked to leave immediately. My neighbors watch the house for large, loud group and will call if there is a party.

There is 1000 sq ft of covered space under the house with a swing, BBQ pit, tables and plenty of chairs. We also have 200+ sq ft of covered space upstairs to catch the cool breezes at night. We have a wagon, boogie boards, beach chairs and toys for you to enjoy.

All the extras for free: We leave a stocked pantry and refrigerator that you are welcome to use. I try to always have the basics that you are welcome to use: butter, jelly, mayo, mustard, ketchup, peanut butter, many spices, popcorn, coffee, creamer, assorted teas, oil, olive oil, sugar and sweeteners.

The house has detergent, hand soaps, dish washer and dish washing soaps, hand towels, and all the cooking and serving pieces you will need.

The bathrooms are fully stocked with all the supplies you will need. I try to leave all the things you might need for you stay down to the band-aids, and first aid kit in the closet.

We also have movies, books, games and cards for indoor fun. We have 2 DVD's with cable and wifi for your pleasure.

Downstairs Covered Space: You have over 800 feet of covered space under the house to enjoy the breeze, relax, and eat. We have a swing, hammock, and seating if you want to have a BBQ or shrimp boil for the family. We have a Weber 22 inch BBQ pit , beach chairs, boogie board, beach toys and a wagon to carry your stuff' to the beach.

I also have left shampoo/conditioner and body wash by the outdoor shower. There is also a drawer full of adult sand shoes in case you forgot yours.

You are able to park under the house if you want to keep your car in the shade.

I absolutely LOVE Galveston. We finally bought this little place and have spent the past 6 years rebuilding every part of the house with a major project each year. We replaced the windows, doors, put in a new kitchen and bath and added an extra bedroom and bathroom last year plus added the large covered porch upstairs. In 2013, we will add central air/heat,landscaping, and will update outside furniture.

Nancy Stiles purchased this house in 2007

We didn't know much about this neighborhood when we bought the house 6 years ago, but we love it and wouldn't want a house in any other neighborhood because it still retains the laid back beach vibe that we desire.

Benefits of Palm Beach are quiet, safe streets and empty beaches. Friendly people greet you on your beach strolls and dogs are welcome in the area. One hotel room in Galveston in the summer on the weekend runs $200 or more, this is much better for groups for 4 or more because of all the amenities.

Our family had a great time at Pelican's Perch. Nancy has thought of everything you could need. Our grandsons loved the toys and games. The walk to the beach is not bad at all, just a short distance.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you do much for your glowing review. We try very hard to make the house "feel like home" to our guests and try to leave all the little things that are a pain to bring, or you just might forget. Great reviews helps me keep up all the little "extras" even when the prices keep going up on those consumables, I still want to keep it wonderful for our guests. (once we rented a place in Galveston and paid had to pay $120 to rent the terrible sheets and there was NOTHING (not even salt and pepper) in the kitchen, so we try to leave the house fully furnished and encourage guests to use what they need. COME AGAIN SOON! Nancy

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
This was my first trip to Galveston and first time booking a property on VRBO. Nancy was great to work with and she really needs to update the pictures on this site because the place is better in person than the pictures show because of all the additional improvements they've done to the property.

This place is away from the busy part of Galveston. Quiet and just walking minutes away from a quiet beach area--even when there were "lots" of people there, it didn't feel crowded.

The inside of the house was very comfortable and well-stocked. If you forget to bring something, you it's probably in the house:-) There's a book instead the house that Nancy put together giving information about the Galveston area and things to do--a concierge doesn't give as much information--in fact, even though we had things planned out, because of Nancy's book, we learned about more things to do:-)

If you're looking for a quiet get-away in a nice place, this place is it. Next time I visit Galveston (and there will be a next time:-), this is the place I want to stay.

Practically Prefect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting a house and I must say, after this experience, I don't think we will be getting hotel rooms for extended stays ever again. The price was comparable to hotels but you get the privacy and freedom of being home. No worries if the kids get a little loud.

Our expectations were met and then FAR exceeded! We thought the place would just be furnished. What we didn't know is that the owner provides EVERYTHING minus your clothes and meat for meals (we could have totally survived with what was there but we do like our meat). The house itself was filled with bright yet non distracting colors. It was very relaxing. By the time we were ready to go, the kids were referring to the place as "home".

We did have an issue with the WiFi but decided to not mess with it and force the kids to have a vacation like my husband and I did when we were young (you know, before technology rule the world). When asked, the kids don't even mention it because one of the closets was PACKED with games. (We just got home last night and the kids are already wanting to go back!)

As for activities, attractions, and restaurants, of course we went to the beach. It was a short five minute stroll away. It was NEVER busy. A couple of times, we were the only ones out there! As for other things, we referred to the incredibly helpful binder the owner has put together.

Yes, we cleaned up after ourselves but it was easy since the place was clean when we got there.

I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Great Galveston Vaca Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Great place to spend vacation time. When most people say "its fully stocked" it means you're missing 1 of 4 spoons and only have 1 pan to cook with. NOT the case here!! There was literally EVERYTHING we needed. There was even butter, milk and popcicles in the freezer. More than enough cookware, silverware everything needed to spice up our hamburgers for the grill. All the beach things needed were available...chairs, boogie boards, shovels and toys and much, much more. The house is beautiful, very clean and more than we needed. The neighborhood is very quiet and the beach, even with the seaweed, was great! Very private beach, unlike in town. Enjoyed the weekend very much. Thank you Nancy.
