About Kristen

Captain Jack's is named after 'Captain Jack', the youngest member of a 3-family brood. He is rough, tough, and loves hugs and his house. (He also loves, at age 3, to color on his face with a blue Sharpie marker.)

Kristen purchased this house in 2008

Why Kristen chose Galveston

We chose this property because it is perfect for a multi-family getaway and we wanted to be ON THE BEACH, with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The location of Jamaica Beach is perfect - close enough to Galveston to easily access the amenities of a city, but far enough to enjoy the tranquility of a family beach setting.

What makes this house unique

Captain Jack's offers an ideal place to congregate in open-concept living spaces, as well as the privacy of large, quiet, separate bedrooms.

A Dream Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family reunion was a huge success at Capt. Jack's! Waking up every morning to the beachfront view was picture perfect, and the house provided great family gathering areas for our crew. We had such a wonderful, relaxing time at the house, we barely left to go into town for the entire week. Also, the owners were were great to work with. When we weren't lounging on the beach, we were absorbing the atmosphere from the shady, breezy deck. The kitchen was well appointed, the bedrooms were clean and quiet, and the zoned air conditioning rocked - giving us welcome relief from the heat. I would highly recommend this property!!

Great NewYears Eve week.

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week after Christmas 2014 at Captain Jack's in Jamaica Beach. What wonderful location to get away from it all, yet just a short drive to all the Galveston hot spots. The views of the Gulf through the two massive glass doors are unbelievable. We had stormy weather which made for some dramatic viewing. The house is layed out well for multiple couples or families to have some privacy yet be able to sit and enjoy TV, movies or play games at the large dining table. Great time, great owners.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were so sad to leave this wonderful house on Friday. This house is even better than we expected. Incredibly well stocked kitchen. Every pot and pan and dish you can imagine. Great coffee maker (that's important!)The deck wraps all of the way around the house 360 degrees. There is a gate that locks on the upstairs deck so no pets or little children can accidentally tumble. Tons of beach toys downstairs and lots of games and puzzles in the house (we left 4 more jigsaw puzzles) Super great house and really friendly landlord. Everything was so well labeled and explained that we didn't need any help when we arrived. Picture perfect vacation. We had 16 people of all ages 6 yrs old to 65 and everyone had a comfy bed and privacy.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer to stay at Capt. Jack's, this time for 2 weeks. Everything was perfect, except for the seaweed problem, which only Mother Nature to blame on that. Our 4 grandsons love this place. Drinking coffee in the morning on the deck watching the sunrise is a perfect way to start the day for us. I hope we are fortunate enough to stay again. Galveston is one of our favorite places and Jamaica Beach is the best place for us. We had a fire on the beach at night with our fire pit which was nice for sure. We did have a problem on our last night there but no fault of the owners. We had some chairs stolen from our spot in front of the beach. We know who did it, just don't know their names. The local police patrol the beach regularly but missed this. Still all in all, another wonderful vacation. Thanks Linda for always being so helpful.

Great home! The photos and description accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. There is plenty of space in the house. The deck is very nice and big. And we loved being so close to the beach. The owner answered all my questions I had. We would recommend this property to family and friends.
