Welcome to the Pirates Property Owners Association (PPOA)! We're located on the West End of Galveston Island, Texas, where our neighborhoods enjoy the scenic beauty of coastal living as well as the advantages of a major metropolitan area. Galveston is about 45 miles south of Houston on Interstate 45. 
Our Pirates communities are made up of 1,700 homes: Pirates Beach, Pirates Beach West, and Pirates Landing Townhomes are adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico while Pirates Cove, Laffite's Cove, The Enclave of Pirates Cove, and The Villas are on, or close to, Galveston Bay. Residents enjoy endless recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, kayaking, birding, golfing, surfing, cycling, or just strolling along the beach. Community amenities include a members-only Country Club and Golf Course.
Our neighborhoods are known for their paradise-like rest and relaxation atmosphere and include both full and part-time residents. In addition to the beach and bay, we are surrounded by the Artist Boat Coastal Heritage Preserve, Galveston Island State Park, and Laffite's Cove Nature Preserve, all of which are among the Island’s most beautiful natural resources.

Update on Short Term Rentals
Posted on May 26th, 2022
We received a ton of feedback and questions from the Community after we posted the ruling from 56th District Court Judge Lonnie Cox supporting the PPOA’s ability to enforce the Pirates Cove Short Term Rental Deed Restriction Amendments.
Because we received so many different questions, I thought it was important to send this update to the Community. The three most frequent questions were:
Short Term Rental Lawsuit Resolution
Posted on May 20th, 2022
Our counsel has forwarded Judge Cox’s Final Judgment in this case; it is attached here. The Judgment grants a Permanent Injunction again the Plaintiffs, who were all of the homeowners engaging in short-term rentals (STR) that were known to us when the case was filed in 2020. The Injunction immediately forbids STR’s, which violate the amended deed restrictions, and the Judgment also awards attorneys’ fees to PPOA. 

Our Communities

Our residents love living in Pirates communities along the beautiful beaches and bays. We work hard to keep our beaches and bay areas clean, our living standards in keeping with our deed restrictions, and our members informed through our website and emails. If you're a resident - please review our website to find information that matters to you. And if you're interested in living in one of our communities, enjoy learning more about the paradise lifestyle we all enjoy!
