About Linda Denson

We love the island life! We love the cool fresh breeze from the water. We love the feel of warm sand between our toes and the smell of salt air. We love the free airshow of pelicans flying just for us! We love fresh snapper with chunks of blue crab. We love Hawaiian shaved ice on the beach!! We love the Victorican architecture and the Art Walks. We love driving for miles and being able to see the ocean! And all of this on Galveston Island!

Linda Denson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Linda Denson chose Pirates Beach

This is a central location to the west end of the island. Very near the beach. About 1/4 mile. In the middle of wide open spaces. Country living. Down the street from where our friends keep their horses. Still only 20 minutes away from the Historic Strand Shopping and University of Texas Medical Branch. Lots of resturants easily accessible.

Cute cozy beach house

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Galveston and we had so much fun! The owner of the property was very nice and responded quickly to messages. She was very nice and allowed us to stay an extra night with no notice 🙂

The only thing I would suggest is that the ac be turned on an hour or so prior to arrival. It was so hot but we totally understood it takes time to cool off. Just a suggestion 😊

Other than that everything was great.

Nice for a small family

  • 4 of 5

Super cute house, but make sure everyone is on the same sleep schedule. LOL!! This was perfect for our weekend stay, but the kids wished they’d had actual rooms so that we didn’t wake them when we got up.

Absolutely loved having the outside shower downstairs. It was nice that rinse the sand off before going back inside the house.

We would gladly stay here again!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband rented this for a spur of the moment 2 night get away. It was very cozy inside and nicely decorated. The bed was VERY COMFORTABLE right down to the linens that were ever so soft. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends and will stay here again and again!
