This charming Galveston home is located in Pirates Beach Galveston in the much sought-after first block off the beach!  The modern style of the home offers several different areas for family fun including a large ground-level patio area, first-floor deck, and another deck of the primary where guests may enjoy a morning cup of coffee and watch as the sun rises on Galveston Island.  Pirates' Paradise was featured in the 1980 Texas Homes Magazine and received the Outstanding Architectural Design Award. This home is located less than a 2-minute walk to the sand and edge of the water!  The exterior of the home features an outdoor shower, a large charcoal grill, and plenty of ground-level seating for those who like to stay out of the sun!  

Guests will enter through the ground floor entryway where the bunk room and extra 1/2 bath are located.  The bunk room features a full over full bunk and TV (sleeps 4).  The half bath and washer/dryer are located on this level - so convenient for guests.  The main level of the home features the large open concept living, dining, and kitchen area. The living area has two sofas and a very large flat-screen TV.  Sorry, the fireplace is not for use by guests. This is an extra-large dining space - enough room to seat 8 for dinner plus four at the large kitchen island. The dining area also has a flat-screen television - no need to turn off the game during dinner! This kitchen has everything needed to prepare everything guests to love to have on vacation from light afternoon snacks to a feast for dinner.  Guests may serve food buffet-style around the island in the kitchen and dine casually or have a more formal setting in the dining room. Whatever makes your group comfortable - this home has all the dishes, serving platters, and utensils needed for both!  

The sleeping accommodations for this house are as follows:  Primary bedroom (navy blue walls) is located on the main floor and has a king bed and adjoining (not private) bath. The primary bedroom also features a television. The adjoining bath features a soaking tub and shower along with double vanity.  The second level of the home features two bedrooms and a bath.  The second bedroom has a king bed and a TV which is located on the 2nd floor of the home.  This bedroom also has a nearby bath with a step-in shower.  The third bedroom features a bunk room of two sets of twin bunks (sleep 4).  The ground level features a full over full bunk and TV (sleeps 4) for a total of 10 guests.  The ground level has a 1/2 bath.  Please be advised there is an exterior shower on the ground level for rinsing off after a day at the beach. This is the perfect sleeping accommodation for two families - two adult couples in king bedrooms, then separate the boys and girls in the bunk rooms, or separate by age in the bunk rooms - you pick what works best for your crew!

Pirates' Beach, located on the beachside of the island, East of Jamaica Beach and Galveston Island State Park, is one of the island's most popular neighborhoods, as families have been vacationing in Pirates Beach for generations! Pirates' beaches are some of the best kept on the island, and many guests appreciate that vehicles are not able to drive on the beaches here (guests are able to park at one of the many neighborhood cul-de-sacs to easily carry beach gear to the beach). Pirates’ Beach has its own small grocery mart, liquor store and even fresh seafood markets and bait shops. If you want to stock up on some essentials, Hummel’s General store is a one-stop shop for groceries, ice, fresh deli sandwiches and pizza, pretty much all the goodies you may need for a vacation weekend.

Ryson partners exclusively with Gulf Coast Concierge to make your time on the island unforgettable! Gulf Coast Concierge understands it's the little things that count. Create your own adventures with beach gear and golf cart rentals, a sunset cruise or a bonfire and smores on the beach. Gulf Coast Concierge also offers fishing charters, photo sessions, and a variety of in-home services. If you can dream it, we will do our best to make it happen!
