About Rick and Linda Greenawalt

My wife Linda and I live in the nearby town of Pearland. We have two college-aged sons who attend the University of Houston and Texas A & M. We use the house ourselves when our schedules permit and personally oversaw the complete renovation and refurnishing of the home last year. I will often work here on Fridays and skip the hustle and bustle of my Houston office. The internet at 13 Palms is faster than the wi-fi at work so I never skip a beat. If I want to take a break, I just shuffle over to the beach less than a minute away.

Rick and Linda Greenawalt purchased this house in 2005

Why Rick and Linda Greenawalt chose Galveston

We have owned three beach houses since 2002. We sold the first two that we located in another subdivision. The first one we owned was completely wiped out by Hurricane Ike in 2008. 13 Palms is a very solid home that has survived two major hurricanes, including Ike. We have modernized the home so that you can be right at the beach but have all of the today's modern convienences right at your fingertips. The house has plenty of parking, is near enough to everything for shopping, dining, etc. but is located in the quiet, high-quality Pirates Beach Subdivision. We are located on a cul-de-sac that terminates at the beach. There is no through traffic and always a breeze coming off of the Gulf. We have three levels of decks - a large space below the house with two picnic tables/bbq grills and a large deck with beach views, two decks on the second level for eating and drinking and sunbathing in a more covered setting, and a third sun deck for sunbathing and star-gazing on top of the house - take your pick.

What makes this house unique

This house has not been long on the rental market but repeat customers are now surfacing. 13 Palms is close to everything but has the virtue of being located in a well-maintained subdivision with a high-quality clientele. It is quiet and private. It has everything that one to two families could need to enjoy a beach vacation and yet still be connected to the modern world if need be.

Good to get away even with rain everyday...

Our second time to rent this home... This time it was cleaner when we arrived to the home compared to last year. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather and it rained every day...UGH... also, this year there was a very bad STINK on the beach with huge piles of seaweed... another issue we cannot control. Still, the home was nice to get away to...

Owner's Response: Glad to hear about the house being cleaner this year. That is why we are renting it out on vrbo instead of letting the local real estate group do it. Since we use it when it is not rented out, we care about keeping it clean and tidy. Sorry about the rain and the sea weed issue.

What an awesome beach house. Just a few steps away from the beach, with awesome views. The decks are the best for relaxing and hanging out with loved ones. The house itself was clean and cozy with an at home feel. The owners were very helpful in answering any questions we had. We would so recommend this beach house for your next vacation stay!! We absolutely loved it.

Best beach house experience ever

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this beach house. and the pictures DO NOT do it justice! It is modest yet beautiful, its cozy, and very well maintained. The balconies are spectacular. We spent most of our time on the top deck, star gazing and dodging mean spirited black birds :)

The pics, like I said don't do the home justice. I expected a much smaller home and even the street view it looks small. But once you enter you are surprised by the size. The deck pics even make those look smaller than they are. We were very pleasantly surprised! It is roomy, plenty of room for me and my husband and 4 giggly loud teenage girls.

Rick and Linda were great to deal with and their home is one I will recommend to anyone looking for a beach house.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the beach house, it is very close to the beach (Walking distance), the balconies are awesome. The house is very cozy and comfortable, very homey. We spent most of our time on the balconies and at the beach, we took our own food, drinks, and ice so we didn't have to leave. Also take your own toilet paper. The discription of the home is on point, there is cable, blu ray players, plenty of towels provided, and most important there is a washer and dryer. Oh and there are hd tvs in all the rooms. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. We had two small kids and didn't have to worry about them getting hurt the home is very safe and clean. We had a wonderful time. We plan on going back next summer, maybe even early in the year too :)

Two of my friends and I rented this beach house the weekend before Easter. The location of the house is perfect - you can't get closer to the beach for the price! In the mornings, we liked to open the deck doors and listen to ocean while eating breakfast. There was also plenty of room for more than just the three of us and would comfortably sleep 2 couples and 4 children - however, the bunk bed mattresses were a little thin. We loved spending time out on the deck and the neighborhood was fairly quiet. Because we enjoyed the house so much, we are already talking about booking it for a second round a little bit later this summer!

Thank you, Rick and Linda, for letting us stay in your beautiful home for a relaxing weekend!
