When it comes to Galveston beaches, everyone’s going to pick a favorite, whether that’s the East End, which is popular among day trippers, or the more low-key West End. Pirates Beach is a sweet spot in the middle, and gets high marks for its quiet, family-friendly community of tidy, pastel-hued homes. Case in point: this lovely lemon-yellow beachfront cottage, which would be perfect as a rental or family retreat.
Located at the end of Fiddler Crab Lane, the home’s streamlined interiors put the focus where it should be: on the waves. This is especially true in the great room, with its row of windows capturing unobstructed views of the horizon. The white-painted walls and vaulted ceilings give off an airy feel, while the driftwood-toned laminate underfoot is practical for cleaning up after sandy toes. Beachy accents, like the shiplap-lined nook, rope stair railing, and an under-stair storage door with a porthole window, are a playful nod to the setting, but don’t go overboard. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)
The overall color scheme is grounded by that driftwood-hued flooring throughout the home, with a few careful picks, like the blue subway tile backsplash in the kitchen, further underscoring the beach vibe.
There are two bedrooms and two baths on the main level, and the primary suite is upstairs, but thanks to daybeds and a bunk bed, the home can sleep up to fifteen. Plenty of beachfront deck space will lure people outside—the primary suite even has its own balcony to watch the sun rise or set.
A few extras sweeten the deal here. For golf and tennis lovers, membership to the nearby Galveston Country Club comes with the property. Also, all of the furnishings are included in the sale, making it super easy to list this in the local rental pool. Or, just get started immediately on your next vacation. Decisions, decisions.
