3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Pirates Beach!
About Christina Hergenrader
I am a BOI (born on island) and grew up in Galveston, just a few miles from Pirates Beach. After moving to Houston and marrying a Midwesterner (and having four kids!), we have rediscovered how enchanting Galveston is. Through years of family vacations, all of us have fallen in love with Galveston. Dreams really do come true! In 2013, our family discovered Best of Times, the perfect family beach house. Now, we are so excited to share it with YOUR family. Our kids have lots of energy and busy schedules. Galveston is the perfect place for us to get away from the hustle and bustle of suburbia and enjoy each other. We are a Christian family, who would love to share this blessing with you. We hope you also discover this beach house is perfect for making family memories. We hope you can reconnect with the people you love the most. We hope you can find your own Best of Times.
Christina Hergenrader purchased this House in 2013
Why Christina Hergenrader chose Pirates Beach
Best of Times is the perfect size. We go to the beach to relax, but we also go to be together. The large, open family room and dining area lets us enjoy each other. The three bedrooms and two baths gives us plenty of room to spread out. Our family loves Pirates Beach. Ice cream trucks come by every afternoon, golf carts carry families and groups of friends to the beach, and dog-walkers and shell-seekers wave from the quiet streets below our deck. The house is a short drive to the island's most interesting attractions; yet, it's far enough from the city that we can relax.
What makes this House unique
The large lower deck is shaded and has a refrigerator to keep your drinks cool. We also have floats and chairs for you to take to the beach. We welcome pets, with some restrictions.

Perfect for our family!
We enjoy going to this beach house because it is prefect fit for our family. There are plenty toys in the house and for the beach for the little ones.
This is our ( I think 5th year) going here and Tina has been awesome. I like the notebook that helps us find the locals hang outs and things to do in Galveston. This year we enjoyed the train museum.
We look forward to your stay every summer! Thank you for making your precious family memories at Best of Times.
See you next year!
Best of Times!
Mid July Mini Vacation
Darling property with all we needed for a mini vacation with 1 preteen and 1 teenager. Loved all of the deck space up and down stairs . The upstairs deck was perfect for star gazing. Plenty of boogie boards and a canopy for shade on the beach .
We enjoyed our time at this home. We had so much fun playing games on the large dinning room table, riding in the golf cart, a new beach to see for our families, and the swings and hammocks which we all enjoyed. There were no surprises with problems. This home is well furnished and cozy. Christina, the owner gave a book full of ideas even down to what you could do on day 1,2,and 3. Wonderful information, wonderful stay.
Thank you for your kind words, Angela!
We’re so glad you found all the information helpful. Thanks for exploring our island. We are so glad you enjoyed the beach.
(And, yes, the hammocks are the best place to relax!)
We hope you come back to Best of Times soon!
For years, Pirates Beach has been Galveston's premier vacation spot for families visiting the island. The beautiful beaches here are quiet and very family friendly. Meet new friends in the neighborhood or refresh old ones. Pirate's Beach is so peaceful, that it's easy to slow down to Island Time.
While in Galveston, plan to explore Moody Gardens; seek new thrills at Pleasure Pier; dive into Schlitterbahn, and shop the Historic Strand.
Welcome to the good life! Welcome to the Best of Times!
