About Nancy

I was born & raised in Houston, Texas. I purchased my Galveston home as a relaxing getaway for myself & family. I have stocked & decorated it as an 'upscale but relaxed' weekend getaway. It is such a beautiful home & perfect refuge for enjoying the sea breezes & beach fun that I decided to share it with caring tenants. Come enjoy a break from the city heat, traffic & stress. You will feel your blood pressure drop when you step out of the car!

Nancy purchased this house in 2010

Why Nancy chose Galveston

My beach house is newly renovated & located in the prestigous Pirate's Beach community, (Galveston's premier area for vacation homes) where the beaches are private and well maintained. It's the best beach in Galveston, and vacationer's & families love this area of Galveston. Pirates' Beach is 8 minutes from Moody Gardens & Schlitterbahn. It's the perfect location giving you quick access to the Strand & various attractions without the seawall crowds. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're in the Pirates Beach community.

What makes this house unique

This home includes access to the Galveston Country club for golf, tennis, swimming pool & dining room privileges. It's only 150 yds to the beach, and the large yard is great for games & picnicing. Enjoy a day at the beach, grilling shrimp on the BBQ and having a glass of wine on the deck, relaxing in the gulf breeze or a round of golf at the country club followed by a snooze in the hammock.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our friends and family had a blast it his house. It was clean, well kept and just as advertised. It was just a short walk to the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The owner was great to deal with and always responded if I had a concern or issue. I would gladly stay here again.

Beautiful, Breezy, Relaxing Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue as we enjoyed our stay in April. We are local Houstonians and wanted to have a little weekend beach getaway with our friends. We had 2 couples and 3 kids and slept comfortably. As mentioned numerous times the layout and decorations are fantastic! The kitchen, dining and living room are all open layout so you can all be together, while the rooms are a great get away since they are in the back. My husband won't stop talking about how nice the bed linens were, so I'll have to invest in some new ones for my own house I guess- haha. The deck is fantastic- we had a 2yr, 4yr, and 14yr old who spent more time enjoying the porch than on the actual beach. It has a gate so little ones can't get down the steps with out an adult opening it which is perfect for us.

The beach was private which was fantastic! Most of our vacation we didn't run into anyone. Because of the large deck and amount of windows we even enjoyed the crazy torrential rainstorm that came through and knocked our electricity out. It was pretty cool to see the ocean light up from lightening while enjoying game night with the light of our cell phones.

Thanks for a relaxing getaway! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Just wanted to tell you how wonderful our experience at Shangri-la house was for our family. My sister and her husband along with my husband and I came to Galveston for a relaxing vacation. The house was appealing to us because it had 2 bedrooms with king sized beds in each which was perfect for us. When we got there, we felt like it exceeded our expectations. It had beautiful spacious rooms. It was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped. The view from the deck was so lovely and we loved sitting outside, drinking our coffee and visiting. Clean,beautiful neighborhood and wonderful private beach. Just an excellent place to stay and we can't wait to go back. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your awesome beach house.

Shangri-La

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from Shangri-La, and wanted to let you know how sad we were to leave! Your home is well decorated, well equipped, and quite clean. The full shade on the porch throughout the day was honestly our favorite feature, and one that we didn't notice on many other houses. Loved the neighborhood, but enjoyed the beach so much, we never took advantage of the club passes! Thanks again for telling me about this special place. We'd definitely recommend it!

Wonderful mini-vacation, enjoyed by all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful beach home! It was welcoming from the very start, and we liked it even more as time wore on. None of us wanted to leave, we all wanted another day or two, and that's said to be the sure sign of a wonderful vacation!

We genuinely enjoyed the stay and would most definitely consider staying there again. Everything was as expected, actually it was better than expected. The pictures were nice, but they definitely don't do it justice. I love the way you have it all decorated. It's so light, open, clean, and homey-feeling. We are even considering a copy-cat paint job with your aqua color for the den walls of our lake cabin. It grew on us so much, has a calming effect, all decorations blend well with it, and looks great in just about every light.

Everything we needed (and then some) was easily accessible, and the very short walk to the beach was most convenient. The convenience store is also very close, for any random items we thought of.

One of the favorite features enjoyed by all was the wrap-around deck. There was a constant breeze while we were there, and to see the water while reading, eating, visiting, even playing Legos or Barbies was most relaxing. It's wonderful that so much of it is covered, yet part of it is open for those who may desire the direct sun.

Thanks for a great stay!
