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 Pirates Beach

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 onto the water, as if you were on a shipl

Awesome place to stay! Wish it was my permanent beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay!

This house is one of the few if not the only house that is truly located on the beach. You can step from the porch onto the beach! No long walk over the dunes. You can see the ocean from almost anywhere in the house! Lots a space to spread out and perfect for those big family vacations. Loads of deck space on both bottom and second floor as well as a great hot tub that overlooks the beach! This house is laid out perfectly for families with kids that are worried about sleeping arrangements as there are plenty of beds. Would definitely recommend staying in this home. The owner makes it extremely easy and will provide you will a great vacation experience. I wish every rental home was this well thought out. I know we will be back!

Awesome view

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible. It is literally on the beach. People would walk by and gaze in underneath. We rented a golf cart and drove all through the neighborhoods. Plenty of room with all the bedrooms. The sound system works inside and outside of the house. Short drive into town if you want to check out the sites. We found all kinds of shells and coral. We would definitely want to stay here again if possible.

Great beach house for our end of summer family vacation - Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

H2O is everything it is advertised. Our extended family 3 couples with children, had all the room to be comfortable and relaxed. On the beach with great decks both covered and open to amazing ocean views. Impeccably decorated and stocked with everything we could ask for. Leah was excellent; very accommodating, easy to work with and super responsive. We would without hesitation recommend H2O, Leah and return for another week in the future.

Fun and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The home we stayed in was lovely and very comfortable. The bottom deck was the best thing about the house for our family. A great place for grandchildren to play and then have easy access to the beach. We spent a lot of our time hanging out on the bottom deck! We weren't ready for our vacation to be over! A relaxing and fun time was had by everyone.

The property basically was nice

Wasn't expecting the beach to look like that with all the seaweed and brown murky water. That was really the only disappointment
