About Ben Owens

Growing up in Houston, we have loved going to the beach and fishing our whole lives. We found our dream home in 2005. It is perfect for family gatherings and fishing and crabbing with the most beautiful sunsets on the island. The property has 100 feet of bulkhead and we added underwater lights so we can enjoy viewing the fish at night. Our 5 grand kids spend hours at the beach making sand castles and collecting shells and Catching fish and crabs off of the dock.All the sand toys you will ever need are provided. Even on rainy or cold days we can spend out time downstairs in covered patio and screened porch listening to music and BBQing and watching the chiminia .

Ben Owens purchased this house in 2005

Why Ben Owens chose Galveston

Laguna Pescada is like no other property on the island for fishing,sunsets,and bird watching.

Absolutely stunning!! :)

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house and would love to come stay again! :) The house is beachy and beautifully decorated. The owners were so sweet and walked us through the house and gave us fishing tips! The fishing was wonderful and so much fun for the whole family! They have a green light under the water that attracts fish and you literally can see hundreds of them swimming over it when it's dark! Really a neat sight! There was a total of 7 of us and more than enough room! The beds were sooooo comfortable too! :) We really preferred this house to one that's beach front because you are literally a 1 minute drive from the beach and so we kept all of our things in our truck and drove right onto the beach which is sooo much faster and easier than hauling all of your things and young kids on the walkway to the beach! The sunsets were beautiful also and because we were on a canal, it was a great view of the ocean without any people. Truly the best of both worlds! We absolutely would come stay there again!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely beautiful and the landscape is breathtaking. The Owens met us at the home and showed us around. They allowed us access to their paddle boards, kayaks, and beach toys, which was beyond generous of them. The pool is within walking distance and is very clean. The beach is just across the road and also within walking distance. I cannot say enough about how great the fishing is. We caught over 40 trout and a load of crab. The guys fished until the late hours of the night with the underwater lights. Everyone caught fish and it was so great to see the young kids reel in their first fish. The Owens ' hospitality is exceptional and the house is perfect for big families. We loved this place and definitely hope to stay again in the future. So many areas to relax and have a true vacation. My favorite spot was the oversized hammocks near the dock. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us.

Truly a Fishing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have gone to Galveston since we were kids. We have stayed in lots of rental properties on all different part of the island, and we loved this house! It has everything you need. The downstairs area and upstairs deck were great for hanging out! There are four garage doors that can be opened to let the breeze blow through, and a screened in porch to soak it all in. Their view from their porch is top notch. There are tons of things to do ranging from relaxing in a swing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, ping pong, darts, and most important to us….fishing. With three underwater fishing lights, it was the best we have ever had. The house is decorated very well and there is plenty of space for large groups or families. We went for a guy’s weekend and wish we could have stayed longer. The owners are unbelievable. They met us at their property and gave us a great tour and made us feel very welcome. If you get a chance to rent their house I definitely would! We will definitely be back! Thank you Ben and Linda for an amazing weekend!

Perfect Galveston Home

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you could possibly need! The owners are so nice and meet you in person to provide you with an orientation of their home. We have rented many homes in Galveston and never had this experience. It is one of a kind! They provide you with beach chairs, beach toys, crab traps and more! This is a big help and saves you from having to bring all the items yourself. Another plus is the ice machine! We couldn’t have bought enough ice to meet our needs, but with their machine we never ran out! This home is perfect for families. Our children loved all amenities it had. We will for sure rent this home again for our stay in Galveston!! Top notch rental!
