This canal home is perfect for those wanting to get away for some R&R.

The three different level decks allow you everything from easy water access on the lower deck for fishing, swimming and boating; to sunbathing or having a sunset dinner on the middle deck, and for the romantics, a secluded evening with your favorite bottle of wine, enjoying the fantastic bay view from the Master Bedroom Deck.

Located 20 minutes from 'The Strand', upscale dinning, dancing, and/or partying is always available. The infamous Rain Forest Cafe, Moody Gardens, and Schlitterbahn Waterpark, are perfect outings for the whole family.

Fun can be had by all....you would have to try not to have fun during your stay...and I'm not sure that's even possible!

My wife Cathy and I met in Galveston 28 years ago. We both love the beach, sun, water, and just being in the coastal surroundings. Immediately after getting married in 1985 we purchased our second home in Jamaica Beach (Galveston). As other properties came available, we purchased them in hopes that someday our five kids would all want to have a 2nd house on the island. We built this house in 2004 and designed it to meet the needs of people who come to the beach to relax and have fun. There is no doubt that being able to get away to Galveston whenever we can has strengthen our marriage, because it automatically puts you in a festive mood when you arrive on the island. The best memories of our lives have been here in Galveston.

Tom Worthen purchased this house in 2004

The West End of Galveston is the place to own a vacation home. Most of the homes on the West End are second homes. It's isolated from all the traffic, crowds, restaurants, and all the other tourist attractions that people enjoy when they visit Galveston, yet your only 15 minutes away. The West End has a festive atmosphere and everyone is friendly. By 4:00 PM the BBQ pits start getting lit, and the margaritas and cold beer start flowing. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck drinking a good margarita and eating fajitas while you watch the beautiful sunset over the Bay.

With the house being on the canal, you can get up in the morning and fish off the deck while you enjoy the beautiful sunrise. During the day you can go to the beach and surf, swim, ride jet skis, fish, or just lay out and freshen your tan. If you want to stay at the house, you may just want to make you a good tropical drink and float in the the canal. Or for those days when it's a little to cool to get in the water, you can always lay around on the couch and read a good book. The bottom line, relaxation is the rule for every day in Jamaica Beach.

AWESOME VIEW AND HOUSE

We stayed at this house over a holiday weekend and had a blast. The house was clean and had lots of space. Towels were included which was a plus. The washer and dryer was also great! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

This was a wonderful clean place. The fishing was great and a very short drive to the beach.We had a few issues with Tv's and DVD player but there was no time to do much watching of TV. Plenty of Kitchen Items and Towels.Recommend they leave a vacuem cleaner because I'm a neat freak. But all in all it was a wonderful peaceful place to spend the week.

BEAUTIFUL & PEACEFUL STAY IN JAMAICA BEACH

Beautiful & Peaceful Stay in Jamaica Beach
  • 5 of 5
The home was fully furnished, neat and very clean. The bed linens and sheets were also clean. The kitchen had several pots and plenty of silverware to use. The three decks had beautiful views of the gulf and the water surrounding the house was very calming. The fish were jumping out of the water and the birds were out and about too. Everyone in my family truly enjoyed the stay. The bar b que pit was very convienent. There was pleny of sleeping space to accomodate my family. I would definetly go back to this beach house rental.

LAUREL COLANGELO

  • 5 of 5
I had a going away party for my 18 yr old son going away to the Navy. We had lots of family members and also many friends who arrived by boat from Kemah. There were all ages from 3 - 60+ and everyone had a fabulous time. We fished, crabbed, floated in the canal, brought a rope swing, took boat rides, went to the beach, ate wonderful pizza from the pizza place in Jamaica beach (I left the menu). The house was perfect with the two rooms in second level and the master on 3rd level with a private balcony with beautiful views. The kids brought an xbox, there is a nice TV in living rm and master. We also brought an extra stereo for downstairs and plenty of chairs since we were having a party, plus a blowup baby pool for the little ones. The kitchen had everything you need and the entire house was very clean.We will definitely rent this property again.

FUN TIME

  • 4 of 5
4 adults and 2 children. Listing was accurate. It was clean and comfortable. Bedding was not the most comfortable but acceptable for 3 nights.Canal was very convient for the boat. First floor shower was great. Would recommend to a friend or relative. Had a great meal at Giados which is to be expected.
Folks next door were great although we did not need their help.
