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.newly 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.

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.

Absolutely Fantastic Vacation Rental!!!

My husband, daughter and I just returned from a 2 week stay at Pelican's Perch for a winter vacation. This house is so wonderful!!! I have never experienced a vacation rental like this. Not only was Nancy so great to book and work with, very flexible, very nice...I feel like she keeps the house as though we are friends coming to use it, not strangers. The house is so well stocked with EVERYTHING! Our daughter was so entertained for the two weeks and we so appreciated all of the toys, beach gear, sidewalk chalk, bubbles etc. It was like being at a fun Grandma's house! The extras for us were great too...tons of pantry/fridge items which is so nice away from home, toiletries, tons of towels, blankets pillows etc. We had such a great stay, the house was exactly as described and so well kept and updated. The underneath patio was a great place to hang out! There were beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, umbrellas, even a wagon to haul it all to the beach! We had never visited Galveston before (we are from Colorado) and after looking at several rentals online we are SO GLAD we chose this one! Being at this quiet end of the island with a nice 3-4 minute walk to the beach down a quiet neighborhood street was so much better than the noisy busy condo area where you have to cross the Seawall Blvd to get onto the beach. We will absolutely return to this house as it felt like our own home away from home. We were also blown away by what a great deal this house was compared to everything else we looked at and SO appreciated the owner's willingness to let us clean ourselves and not be charged a fee! We tried to keep our vacation as budget conscious as possible and were ecstatic about how great of a deal this was for being such a fantastic place to stay. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun relaxing beach getaway. If you haven't been to Galveston before I recommend this side of the island vs near the condos and while your there take the ferry to Bolivar Peninsula, buy donuts at Hand Cut Donuts and buy fresh shrimp and seafood at Galveston Shrimp Company. We will make this a yearly winter visit! Thank you Nancy!!
Owner's Response: WOW! Thanks for the glowing reviews! The winter rates are bare minimum to try and cover expenses and much less than condos/hotels. We know families are traveling with limited space and don't need to buy beach things they might never use again, so we leave those things for guest. And yes, our goal is to make it feel like you are staying at a friend's house. Come again. This year we are adding central air and heat and do updates and improvements every year.

This house was wonderful. We had a blast staying here. This house is close to a nice clean beach. I will hopefully be returning in the future. The owner was really helpful with our last minute booking. Thanks for a wonderful weekend get away.
Owner's Response: Thanks for staying. A lot of people just don't realize how wonderful Galveston is in the fall. So close to Houston, but feels a million miles away. Every time I cross the bridge and fee the breeze, see the birds and palm trees and the ocean........I'm so happy. Come again!

FunRainy Fall Weekend

Great location with a short walk to an empty beach. The house was well stocked, lots of extra linens, pillows and towels ( bring you're own beach towels). It rained a lot, which we enjoyed because it kept the beach clear and an excuse to stay in. There are plenty of DVDs including newish ones that a family of 8 with four generations could agree on; and a few inside toys, games and lots on sand toys. It's clean and clearly well taken care of. One caution though, the third room is more of a through way, you have to pass through it it acess the back room. Which wasn't a problem until night. Although you can close the doors around the room, you can't with the trundle out unless you're willing to lock in the people in the back bedroom while the trundle is out. We kept all the doors open, but grandma didn't like that.

Owner is helpful, quick to respond, thinks of everything, and is friendly. Overall, we had a great time and we'll definitely use it again.

This was a great size for 4 adults and 3 kids. The location was nice. We had a couple of mishaps figuring out things in the house...such as how to lock the door and why the washer would not run. Not the owners fault...they have an instruction book for everything that we didn't see right away.
The property has pretty much everything you could possibly need and that was awesome. We bought what we wanted to cook for the week.... We would stay here again and hope that we get to....

We will not charge a deposit or cleaning fee is you leave the house like you find it. If you prefer, we can clean when you leave for an additional $75. The 15% tax must be collected for state/city taxes.I do not collect a deposit, so I operate on trust that you will care for and respect our property. The first payment holds reservation. Disclosure: You must let us know if you're planning to have a party and number of people coming AND staying overnight. The house is only 1000 square feet and NOT designed for large groups or teenage parties/proms. It is a great price for the beach side, but for large groups, you need to rent a bigger house.
