A dog-friendly place in perfect condition, with beach close by and nice views of the gulf.

My wife and I and a variety of family members had a wonderful time staying at Island Cabana. The house is barely 50 yards from the beach, an easy walk, with nice views of the Gulf. It is in excellent condition, with powered shutters, a TV in every room (satellite big screen TV in the main room), dry covered parking for 3 cars, 3 bedrooms (including a second floor master bedroom.) It has a small yard that our dogs liked. Over 30 days we have a variety of friends and family members visit, so we cooked meals, planned Galveston trips, watch the gulf in all sorts of weather, and generally had a great time! We hope to go back.
We had four generations of family members visit us. The stairs are protected from the elements and the outdoor areas have good lighting, convenient for both my mother and mother-in-law.
The owners are prompt to answer email and are truly dog friendly--it was a pleasure to rent from them!
We walked the beach every day, even when it rained. My mother (86 years old!) walked the beach every morning. One day I walked from Jamaica Beach to the Island Cabana house (5 miles) and another day I walked the beach west to the end of the island (6-7 miles.) Other days we ate at Nate's West End in Jamaica Beach, visited the Moody Gardens, Moody Mansion, Bishop's Palace or took the ferry over to the Bolivar Peninsula.
