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

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.

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!

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!!

Vacation Rental

Disappointed for the price. The built in beds were extremely uncomfortable and the bed in the middle bedroom was way too small for 2 adults. Very difficult to start the dish washer as the counter top covers the buttons when the door is closed. The view however is great. Some of the deck chairs were cracked or broken and need replacing.

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate your feedback and are concerned that you were not completely satisfied with your stay. We would like to address your concerns.

We admit to being somewhat surprised at your comment about the comfort of the beds, as the feedback we have received previously has been overwhelmingly positive. It is important to remember that this is a vacation home, and is not designed for long-term comfort, but for maximum accommodation at the best comfort we can provide. As owners, we have stayed in every bed in the home and have been quite comfortable.

The dishwasher is somewhat confusing, we admit! That said, it functions well and is something of a luxury in a beach rental. We apologize for any issues you may have had with its operation, and can understand your frustration.

We have checked the chairs on the deck and found cracks in two of them. They still function quite well. This late in the summer season, they do tend to show some wear and tear. We make a point to replace any broken chairs each year and to provide plenty of outdoor seating.

Again, we do apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment in your stay. We strive to maintain the home in the best quality possible, and appreciate you taking the time to communicate your concerns.

Vacation in Paradise

We were so excited about arriving in Galveston for our week in the sun and everything was great. The house is wonderful. Worked out a few minor problems with Mike and they were handled promptly. We loved the top deck for star gazing and used the picnic table everyday on the lower deck. Not sure what more we could have asked for except maybe a hammock. We are already planning our week in Galveston next year. Jamaica Beach is a wonderful spot and Capt. Jack's is the perfect place to be. We had 13 there part of the time and the sleeping arrangements were just fine. Grandsons were in the water or looking for shells all the time. Not as much seaweed as last year which was a bonus, but even that wouldn't keep us away. Hope the house is available when we can determine what week we want next summer. Thanks again for a great experience.

Wonderful Place for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
Captain Jack's was more delightful than the listing promised. The photos gave a realistic description of the rooms, except that the for kitchen and casual eating area which were larger and more convenient than I expected from the photos. We were there for a family reunion with folks who were staying at a nearby house, and the kitchen and dining area was large enough (and adequately supplied with cookware and dinnerware) for the entire family to have dinner together there one night. The decks are larger than I imagined from the photos, and there is a nice picnic table and several deck chairs right outside the kitchen / living area. The owner was most prompt in answering my questions. I would certainly recommend this property for any family or group who wants a clean and comfortable place to stay.
