It's all about the view... You have to see it to appreciate it. The most common response is 'Wow, what a great view !"

I live in Houston and wanted a peaceful refuge to escape the heat and congestion of the big city. This house was perfect... the view is fabulous and it feels like I'm on the beach without leaving my deck. It's so close, that I can hear the waves, the seagulls & beach lovers without ever leaving my house. :) I have decided to share my beautiful home with caring guests that appreciate upscale furnishings.
Nancy purchased this house in 2009
In Feb 2010 I renovated this home in a 'Cape Cod meets Key West' style. The home has a green belt behind it which is a protected area and gives the location a more private feeling than the typical beach home. You can lay in the master bed and look over the dunes to the water. Located in Pirates' Beach, the house is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're at this house.
This home is ideal for two families or a group/family where some of the guests prefer a bit more privacy as it has the added benefit of a self-enclosed downstairs where the 4th bedroom and 3rd bath are located. Since there is no inside staircase, the room downstairs is insulated from the noise in the upstairs and likewise, the upper floor is insulated from noise downstairs. The downstairs is accessible through its own outside door.
The location was perfect! Steps away from the beach and close to town. The host was perfect! She sent us great info and was easy to communicate and work with. The house was perfect! Clean, up to date, functional, roomy (the beach toys and chairs were a nice touch). Simply all-around perfect! We enjoyed our stay very much (2 families each with 1 toddler + 2 separate, single adults).
My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend here for our anniversary. It was perfect! Quiet, just steps away from the beach. Beautiful master bedroom with views of the ocean. Highly recommend!
My extended family had a great time staying here. It is just as it is pictured on VRBO!.
The only problem was the lack of two keys. We enjoyed the stay very much.
We had such a great stay at seaside cottage. Would book again in an instant! The view from the master suite is worth every penny. Thanks Nancy!!
This beach house is almost on the beach, a mere 50 yards, and it has a spectacular unobstructed view.
