About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 Baths, sleeps 8-10, huge deck close to beach

Welcome to Fiddler’s Deck in the exclusive Pirates Beach Subdivision! Come stay in our comfortable house where your family can relax and unwind. Our 3 bedroom house comes with everything you need for a perfect beach vacation, including an enormous deck with a view toward the beach. The house, at 4114 Fiddler Crab Lane, is nine houses from the beach (approximately 600 feet).

Our spacious upstairs master has a king sized bed with a large private bath. A futon couch in the Master converts to a double bed. Bedroom #2 has a queen sized bed and bedroom #3 has 2 bunk beds. These bedrooms share a common bath. The kitchen is fully outfitted for cooking and there are several eating areas--kitchen table, breakfast bar, and four more tables outdoors! The open floor plan downstairs connects the living room and kitchen.

The yard is landscaped and spacious due to adjacent green space and open lot, and there is plenty of parking. Best of all is the 2-minute walk to the beach. Take our wagon and sand toys, and you are set!

About Wendy and Jim

We are second generation owners of this house and enjoyed making memories here. We hope you make memories with your family, too!

Why Wendy and Jim chose Pirates Beach

Whether relaxing on the beach or just sitting around on the large deck, we love the privacy and solitude that Pirates Beach provides. Pirates Beach is truly the gem of Galveston.

What makes this house unique

We are only 100 yards from the beach which is the perfect distance. We can quickly walk to the beach or simply enjoy the large living areas around the house. We often play in the yard or simply sway in the hammocks to relax. Long walks on the beach at sunset are a tradition.

Loved this house with spacious decks and outdoor space so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights, including New Year's Eve, during the coldest weather in many years but we were cosy indoors and the house had all the facilities we needed to make our stay a pleasant one. The house is very well-equipped and clean and the seating and beds all very comfortable. The spacious master suite was a lovely area to retreat to for us, the grandparents!

We would have liked to make more use of the outdoor decks but with freezing winds, we were only able to let the grandkids run off a bit of steam but not sit and enjoy using the outdoor furniture. We really appreciated the short walk to the beach and we all wrapped up well and spent several hours making sandcastles, etc - as Scots, we are accustomed to making the most of the weather conditions!

The owners were very responsive to any requests and ensured we enjoyed our trip. We would definitely recommend this nice property at Pirates Beach to others.

Great place for families!

This house was perfect for our pre-Thanksgiving getaway! Probably the best provisioned house we’ve rented. All the little stuff that you always end up going to the store for. Great big deck was great! Plenty of tables and chairs.

The home was very nice, very clean, very cozy. I had a few questions while there emailed the renters and they responded quickly. We are definitely planning to return for a longer period of time. 👍�🏽�❤️

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The owners/hosts were highly responsive to our questions and requests. We reached out to them several times mostly with special request for the event we were celebrating. Wendy and Jim responded promptly and followed up as needed.

Everything was clean and in order. The neighborhood was highly desirable and would be a place we would like to live. It is only a short walk or ride to the beach (~100-200 yards).

We used the place for a weekend getaway for my wife’s birthday where our entire adult family with one infant converged to celebrate. It was a perfect venue for that celebration.

The decks are amazingly spacious with plenty of seating but not cluttered at all. We recommend and would rent the place again. Great layout for family.

Great location and great house!

  • 4 of 5

The house is tucked away in a corner of the neighborhood where there is almost no traffic, and it's just a short walk to the beach. We felt totally safe letting our teen-aged daughters walk back and forth from the beach at all hours. The house itself was tidy and well maintained. The layout is ideal for parents with older kids, because we had our quiet sanctuary upstairs while our daughters and their friends took over the downstairs. And the deck is spectacular!
