Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

Three bedrooms and 2 baths -Sleeps 6+ (one bedroom is small 8-10 with trundle

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.

The house has linen, sheets, pillows, blankets, soap and cleaning supplies.

The bathrooms are stocked with some basics and a start up toilet paper roll. For longs stays and extra people, you will need to bring your supply.

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 pit, beach chairs, boogie board, beach toys and a wagon to carry your stuff' to the beach.

I also have an outdoor shower with hot water.

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

Check in is 3:00 or later and check out is noon or earlier.

About Nancy Stiles

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.

Nancy Stiles purchased this house in 2007

Why Nancy Stiles chose Galveston

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. We used to come every weekend, but with grandchildren, we are busy and decided to rent to guests to help with repairs and expenses.

What makes this house unique

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 per room per night so renting a house is a much cheaper option with extra space than 2-3 hotel rooms in the crowded part of the island.

Outstanding Location. Outstanding Price. Amazing

  • 5 of 5
We left this little poem in the guest book when we signed it.

We dreamt all year of family fun.
Sand and sea, salt air and sun.
For our dream we started our search
And found it here at Pelican Perch.

It was the perfect place for our families to converge. 3 couples and 2 children. Just the right amount of beds. The balcony and the patio under the house were great hang outs. We could hear the ocean as we sipped coffee in the mornings. All of the reviews that I read before the trip were not over exaggerated. The house was well stocked and great little surprises here and there. Decorations were great. We will definitely be booking again. Can't wait for next year.

I wonder if the beach misses us as much as we miss it 2 days later.

Truly relaxing

Our family had such a lovely time at Pelican's Perch. We all drove away ready to come back and do it all over again :)
My youngest daughter asked if we could come back next summer. Thank you for providing a place to relax and recharge before we had to get back to busy life.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Girls weekend getaway, had a wonderful time. The house was clean and tidy, plenty of sleeping areas. Two bathrooms was very nice. The best part was that if you forgot anything it was already in this very well stocked house. Very short walk to the beach and didn't need to leave for anything else. I will definitely rent this house again.

Great place near the beach!

  • 5 of 5
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

No extra fees will be added -only exception a $25-50 pet fee for approved pets. 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.
