About Leah Ragiel

Our family lives in Houston -- a one hour drive to Pirates Beach. This is our second home and we cherish it. We take great care of the house and hope you will, too! We love to have our extended family come with us from our grandparents to our many aunts, uncles and cousins! Cherished memories are always made!

Leah Ragiel purchased this house in 2008

Why Leah Ragiel chose Galveston

We love the beach and when we saw this house we recognized its architectural uniqueness. It is a gem. The design wraps your vacation experience around the beach and the gulf. The minute we arrive, our shoulders relax and our minds clear!

What makes this house unique

The decks are practically on the beach. You can't get any closer. The many windows and the soft colored furnishings highlight the beach views. Each room is well- appointed. In the living room and kitchen you look right out on the water, as if you were on a shipl

We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home. Just the opportunity to wake up and go to bed with the sound of the ocean was more than enough!! Everything about this home was just perfect! Thank you again so much! Our family enjoyed every moment.

We had a great time. The owners were fantastic in facilitating any questions we had. The location can't be beat, you don't even need to set up a tent, as you can just relax on the deck, that is essentially on the beach. The house has everything that you could need for a worry-free vacation.

A designer decorated home with soothing neutral colors and stainless steel appliances.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 enjoyed the comfort of a well stocked home right on the beach. It was so enjoyable we had a hard time leaving to go into Galveston. The town activities were only about 7 miles away with great grocery stores available. We will come back for another family stay!

Incredible Architectural Design and Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing. It is so beautifully designed inside and out. The ocean actually came up to the house several times during our stay with a combination of high tide and short storms. Such a great place to relax and enjoy the beach!

What an amazing beach house! The location was awesome. The views in the house were awesome. The kitchen was nicely stocked with all dishes and cookware we needed. The whole house and experience was top of the line, so worth every penny! Kids had a blast. Owners were attentive and very nice. We will be returning very soon.
