Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This comfortable beach house in exclusive Pirates Beach West is perfect for your next vacation. Our home has three bedrooms (king, queen, full w/ twin trundle, twin) and can accommodate eight people. There is a partial ocean view from the covered deck, living room and master bedroom. The house is located beach side and is three short blocks to the beach. During the summer months we do weekly stays starting on Sunday. We have flexibility on that depending on availability.

Our home is equipped with many amenities including an extremely well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, four televisions (one in each bedroom, plus living room - 3 of which are flatscreens), wireless broadband internet access and outdoor grill. Galveston Country Club guest passes are available on weekly rentals where you can swim in their pool, play tennis or enjoy a round of golf.

Our home features an over sized yard with nice landscaping, outdoor shower, and sand volleyball court. Vacant lot on one side of the house allows for extra room to play ball with the kids. We have a portable crib and swing available for infants/toddlers. Several beach toys and boogie boards are available to our guests.

Our house is about three minutes away from Galveston Country Club, Galveston Island State Park and West Bay. It is about ten minutes away from Galveston restaurants, The Strand, Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn.

We list our house as 'pet friendly'. However, some we aren't able to accommodate due to size/breed. Please inquire when asking about renting our home. Thank you.

**NOTE** You may see reference to use of a golf cart in the 'guest comments' section. Unfortunately, we no longer have a golf cart due to Hurricane Ike. The beach is about a 5 minute walk from our house. Alternatively, you can drive and park your vehicle in a cul-de-sac right before the beach.

About Teresa Kennedy

Hi! We are Paul and Teresa Kennedy from Austin, Texas and we purchased our Galveston vacation home in 2007. We enjoy doing things as a family and Galveston is the perfect destination to do that. We take pride in keeping our home clean, comfortable, fully equipped, and in excellent condition. We want our renters to fully enjoy their visit, and we will try to accommodate them whenever possible. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Teresa Kennedy chose Galveston

We decided to buy a house in Galveston after visiting the Island many times and always enjoying ourselves with the many things there are to do there. We enjoy going to the beach and love how relaxing Galveston is.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located in a very quiet, exclusive neighborhood and is the perfect place to get away. In addition to just enjoying the beach, we like to play golf and swim at the Galveston Country Club which is only about 2 miles from the house. We also play putt-putt golf or go shopping at many of the unique stores on The Strand.

"Just Right" is Right!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at this lovely vacation home. The home is exactly as described. Our family of four fits perfectly. The beds are very comfortable; as is the couch . . . so much so, that we wanted to take it home with us! We did experience an unfortunate A/C outage one day, but the owners were very prompt to respond and it was back up and running in just a few hours. We highly recommend Waterman's Grill for a sunset dinner. The food is AMAZING! We are always sure to visit The Strand and enjoy some ice cream from La King's Confectionery when we're in Galveston. We will definitely be back next summer. Thanks, Teresa and Paul!

Great Family-Friendly Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was wonderful! We loved the location, within walking distance of the beach and a quick drive to the Galveston Country Club. Features we particularly enjoyed include the open floor play and overall layout which allowed for together time as well as privacy. The porch was a a great spot to gather for morning coffee and evening sunsets. The outdoor shower was also a big plus and enabled us to not bring sand into the house. Pirates Beach West is a high quality enclave of homes, very pretty and peaceful. Highly recommend this vacation rental!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I spent the past weekend at this house on Galveston Island. My family is small and we do not see each other very often as we live in Alaska, Ohio, Texas, DC, Mexico, etc. We spent a very wonderful weekend together at this house. While it was not right on the beach, there was a distant view of the water. The neighborhood (Pirates Beach West) is small and very well maintained. We felt it was the nicest neighborhood on either Galveston Island or Bolivar Peninsula. I had never been to Galveston. This house is about 3-4 houses from the beach. It is a very easy walk. The neighbors we met as we sat on the deck, barbecued under the house, or walked to the beach were charming and friendly. I highly recommend this house. The location is quiet , clean, and very pleasant. The house is very well maintained and spotless. The set-up in the kitchen is well planned. The beds were comfy. The televisions were large enough for comfortable viewing although we only had one on once to watch a game. Teresa the owner is pleasant and very easy to contact. I am over 65 and well traveled. I am used to the best. This house is great for the price.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend in April here and it was awesome! Communication from the owner was perfect. The house is in a quiet neighborhood overlooking the state park. We caught a movie at Moody Gardens and walked around the strand - both closer than we thought. My wife ran on the beach in the mornings, we did a little bird watching, grilled at the house, relaxed on the deck - very nice weekend. The house is very clean and well equipped for any adventure or meal! We'll be back soon!

8/15 vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 3 times so far and each time it just gets better. This is a very nice home with everything you need for a great vacation. I like the fact that it is near the beach so you can walk if you desire. We also enjoy sitting on the deck in the evenings after being at the beach. We take our granddaughter each time and she just loves it. I would recommend this property and do to anyone asking about our vacation. I would also like to say that the owners are always very helpful and friendly. Thank You
