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

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.

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.

We would definitely stay here again. This house is only steps from the beach and it is very roomy. It was also really clean! Our whole family enjoyed themselves immensely.

Beautiful house and location!

We stayed for a month in this beautiful house. It was spotlessly clean had lots of room for all our visiting relatives. It is just steps from a great beach where my husband enjoyed surf fishing and the grand kids loved playing on. It is close to all the Galveston attractions. Make sure you take advantage of the free ferry ride provided by the state of Texas. There is so many great restaurants in the area. We particularly enjoyed Salsa's for Mexican and Fish Tales for seafood. Rick, the owner was very helpful and answered immediately if we called him with a question.

Great Stay on the beach - not crowded during winter.

Some folks like Galveston better in winter when there are no crowds. We had a great stay and this beach house was excellent. The owner is easy to work with and does care about the home and that his guests enjoy their stays. We put out trip together at the last minute and were lucky that there was a cancellation. The towels and linens were clean and the house was very tidy. I have a habit of inspecting all beds and couches when I arrive at any hotel or condo or house rental. I inspect under, behind and around everything with a high intensity flash light. I even strip the sheets and mattress covers and lift mattresses and box springs.

After my 45 minute inspection, I can tell you that this is one clean place, very clean!

All this for a reasonable price, and just steps from the beach.

Highly Recommend this property!

The beach house was all we had wanted and more, the beach was right there, the drive into Galveston was easy and gave us other opportunities, i.e., movie, eating out, ferry ride, Moody Gardens, and much more. Found a gym just minutes from us to keep up our workouts. The owner was more than helpful, and the property was spotless and well-maintained. We will be back and recommend it to others.

Fantastic Weekend

This was a great weekend get-away for our family as we met other family at a nearby beachhouse for a family reunion. We planned on being by the water and this home worked perfectly for us. I only had one issue--upon arrival late on a Friday, I had kiddos who needed to use the restroom immediately and there is not toilet paper supplied and there was not an open store nearby unless you went to the seawall area. Had I known we needed to bring that one supply, I would have been ready for that! That is not something that would make me drop the 5 stars, but future renters need that information for late arrivals. I've rented many beach houses in the past and always had toilet paper! :) Otherwise, the house was clean and enjoyable even during the rain!
