Enjoy a quiet beach retreat in our home. Pirates Lair is located in family friendly Pirates Beach just a short walk to the water. Our home is located on the last street to the west in Pirates making it quiet and private with little street traffic. This end of the beach is seldom crowded making it perfect for building sandcastles or just relaxing. Pirates Beach is close to town so anyone wanting to shop on the Strand or take in an event at The Grand Opera House will not have far to drive.
The interior of the home was completely updated in 2012 with a fresh coat of paint, new flooring (hardwood in the den) all new countertops, appliances and new tile showers in 2 of the bathrooms. We have maintained it well and it shows no wear.
The kitchen is fully equipped. The dining table seats 6 with space for 4 more at the bar. The living area has ample seating and includes a flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player.
There is an enclosed,outdoor shower under the house with hooks for towels. There are picnic tables and a charcoal grill for cooking your catch of the day.
Walk up the stairs and you find a comfortable deck with Adirondack chairs and and a table and 4 chairs for outdoor dining. There are also outdoor speakers connected to the stereo for your enjoyment.
All linens and towels are provided and we provide most paper products. The master bedroom has a private deck with seating provided.
We grew up on the island and still view it as 'home' even though we have not lived there since we went away to college. We love Galveston.
Annye purchased this house in 2012
We chose this house for its' location. Pirates Beach has a family friendly, neighborhood feel to it and it is close enough to town to be convenient for shopping etc. We have great neighbors and everyone is friendly.
This home has a great view of the beach. We also like that one of the bedrooms is like a private getaway for a family. It is 2 rooms with a bath and a small area in between. We call it the apartment.
What a wonderful home to call yours while in Galveston! This home is well-equipped with every kitchen item you could possibly need. The bedrooms are well-appointed and the electric hurricane shutters were perfect for keeping my 8-year-old twins asleep past 7:00 a.m.! The neighborhood itself is fantastic: nice tenants or neighbors all around (my kids made several friends down the street), a daily drive-by from an old-fashioned ice cream truck, and a short walk to the beach for kites, skim boarding, and sand play. All this while only minutes from town (10-15 minutes door-to-door to Randall's grocery/Schlitterbahn/Moody Gardens). All the furnishings in the home are comfortable and there is covered parking for your vehicle with enough room for the kids to play. The basketball goal was a bonus. The owner provided succinct and accessible instructions and was available for the stray question or two via text. We took the kids' electric scooters, a new lego set, scrapbooking materials, a basketball, a Velcro toss-and-catch game, and paper and colored pencils and hardly used the TV at all. Can't wait to go again!
This is a terrific home for a group of adult couples, as we were getting together for a relaxing weekend. The house is in tip-top shape, furnished with everything you could imagine needing. Wonderful location, a short walk to the beach, a short drive back to town for restaurants and shopping, and in a very nice development of similar homes, all very well maintained. Great owners as well. We could not have been more pleased and recommend this house strongly.
What a wonderful home in Galveston, and what a great place for a family, or as in our case, small group of couples to get together for a relaxing time on the beach. The house is in fantastic condition, incredibly well supplied with everything you could imagine, and is just steps from the beach. This is a great development of houses just a short drive out of town, very quiet and everything well maintained. We had a perfect place to stay and are grateful to the owners for making this available.
This is a beautiful, well-appointed home. It was just a short walk to the beach and had a beach view from the deck. The house was very clean and well maintained. It was a great location in Pirates Beach, away from the congestion in town but close enough to go in to eat or walk through the historic district. Three generations of our family, including two small children and a baby, made wonderful memories here.
The Pirates' Lair completely exceeded our expectations! As other reviewers have mentioned, there is ample sleeping, bath, and living space that comfortably accommodated our group of 8 adults and 6 small children. Both the kitchen and the bathrooms were incredibly well stocked, and the washer and dryer were super quick. The decor is tastefully beachy, and we very much appreciated how kid-friendly the furniture is (no sharp corners/glass and a kid's table and chairs in the kitchen). The beach is an easy walk down the quiet street. We were so pleased with every aspect of our experience and definitely hope to return to the Pirates' Lair!
This is the second time our group of friends have rented this house for a girls weekend in Galveston. It is so perfect for our size- 8 ladies in town for fun, sun, food and shopping. The layout of the house works so well for us as the bedrooms are not on top of each other and there are 3 full bathrooms which is important for women :) Fully stocked kitchen including condiments and spices. Great outdoor chairs for visiting. A really short walk to the beach. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with. Would highly recommend this rental.
Moody Gardens, Schliterbahn Water Park, miniature golf and several restaurants are within a short drive. There is also a good seafood market across FM 3005.
