Our vacation rental, The Pelican Cove, is just 2 short blocks from the beach, a mere 3 minute walk from the seawall, less than a mile away from Pleasure Pier. Our house has free wifi, a Smart TV w/ many apps available for use, and is pet friendly! There is a place for 6 people to sleep comfortably and maybe max 8 people to fit in the house. We don't live here as this is our own vacation home as well, so you won't see personal things!

We are animal people too, so you may keep your pet but we've had experience with tenants bringing large animals that caused problems, so small animals will be allowed, they must be house trained, medium/large pets will be considered and will be charged a fee! Please let us know how many pets will be staying, 1-2 are okay but anymore than that we will have to consider.

There is FREE on-street parking, and since the house is so close to Seawall Blvd., you can save money. No parking meters.

Great central location, in a homey neighborhood. Perfect for a week's stay with plenty of towels and a comfortable living space for six of us. First time using airbnb was a success in my book!

Edgar's place is clean, warm, and comfortable. He has a great DVD collection and there is a beautiful areas in front of an in back of the house to unwind and relax. The landscaping is very nice and he pays attention to the smallest details when it comes to making you feel at home. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Nice, updated home with large bedrooms. Priced reasonably well. Small yard front and back but overall workable and well kept. Nice amenities and Edgar was very gracious and caring.

Great little house with-in easy walking distance to the seawall, food and shopping. The Pelican Cove had pretty much all the basics ready and waiting. Just left to enjoy your time!

Edgar User Profile

I am from South America, I moved to the USA nearly 20 years ago with my wife and daughter. I first lived in New York then relocated to Texas. I am a teacher, but for many years I had other houses in both North and South America, I would rent them out not for vacation but long term. Once I sold my 2 extra houses in Texas I came upon a house in Galveston, I decided to buy it and renovate it, it was terrible before I got to it. I am still a teacher, I own a vacation rental (for 4 years now), own 3 houses and 1 property in South America.
