Enjoy a quiet beach retreat in our home. Pirates Lair is located in family friendly Pirates Beach just a short walk to the water. Our home is located on the last street to the west in Pirates making it quiet and private with little street traffic. This end of the beach is seldom crowded making it perfect for building sandcastles or just relaxing. Pirates Beach is close to town so anyone wanting to shop on the Strand or take in an event at The Grand Opera House will not have far to drive.
The interior of the home was completely updated in 2012 with a fresh coat of paint, new flooring (hardwood in the den) all new countertops, appliances and new tile showers in 2 of the bathrooms. We have maintained it well and it shows no wear.
The kitchen is fully equipped. The dining table seats 6 with space for 4 more at the bar. The living area has ample seating and includes a flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player.
There is an enclosed,outdoor shower under the house with hooks for towels. There are picnic tables and a charcoal grill for cooking your catch of the day.
Walk up the stairs and you find a comfortable deck with Adirondack chairs and and a table and 4 chairs for outdoor dining. There are also outdoor speakers connected to the stereo for your enjoyment.
All linens and towels are provided and we provide most paper products. The master bedroom has a private deck with seating provided.
We grew up on the island and still view it as 'home' even though we have not lived there since we went away to college. We love Galveston.
Annye purchased this house in 2012
We chose this house for its' location. Pirates Beach has a family friendly, neighborhood feel to it and it is close enough to town to be convenient for shopping etc. We have great neighbors and everyone is friendly.
This home has a great view of the beach. We also like that one of the bedrooms is like a private getaway for a family. It is 2 rooms with a bath and a small 'kitchen' area in between. We call it the apartment.
Decided to spend time at the beach with family and friends and Pirates Lair was just perfect. The home is very comfortable and nicely decorated with all that you need for your stay. The deck had a good view of the Gulf with comfortable chairs and table. The basketball goal was an added bonus for teenage boys. Neighborhood was clean and quite with easy access to the beach. Owner was very nice and responded quickly to any questions. Hope to stay again in the future.
Our church singles group goes to Galveston twice a year for a retreat to relax and fellowship. This was the best yet. We have in the past had a house that did not live up to the description, and so were pleased to find that this house was everything described and more. It was perfect for our group (mixed singles) with a variety of sleeping arrangements and great open space in the main area. Everything we needed was provided, and the house was clean and comfortable. The view from each of the balconies is inviting! We are looking forward to returning next spring.
The house was everything as described plus even more than we imagined. We had 5 adults and 3 small kids and was very roomy. The house was clean and well maintained. We cant wait to rent it again, and would recommend this house to everyone one that appreciated nice, clean, great location, comfortable , relaxing home for a vacation.
We have been renting through VRBO for years and we usually have a good experience. This was the best! This house is beautiful, comfortable and you have everything you ever need. We so enjoyed the country club and beach. We had 10 people but were never crowded. We can't wait to return next year. Also, dealing with owners was a dream compared to management company's! Thank you Annye, your home was more than we ever expected!
This is the nicest house our group has rented in Galveston in the past 11 years. We are a group of "mature" women who get together once a year at the beach to catch up, shop, eat some great food and relax. We want the comforts of home like great beds and a well equipped kitchen. This house filled all our needs and then some. With 3 full baths, we had plenty of room to get ready and not get in each other's way. It was so refreshing to rent a house that had cupboards filled with spices and oils for cooking, condiments in the frig, and shampoo already in the showers. They provided plenty of towels and had hair dryers in every bathroom. It felt like we are staying at a friend's house.
Great deck for enjoying the view of the water with lots of seating so we could visit.
The subdivision is so well kept with manicured lawns and pretty flowers. As a group of women staying alone, we felt very safe and secure at night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in this well designed home in a lovely neighborhood. Although the weather was not ideal, it did not dampen our Galveston/ Gulf experience. The gracious homeowner provided us with everything we needed rain or shine. My entire family (ages 4-64) looks forward to returning to this great home away from home.
