LUXURY WATERFRONT BAYHOME...ONE OF THE MOST REQUESTED HOMES ON GALVESTON ISLAND!

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9 to 11

Following an extensive renovation, Jamaica Beach's most-requested vacation home, 'Kachina Cay', is now back & even better than before!

Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Kachina Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'

'Kachina Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak from our dock right into the wildlife preserve at Galveston State Park (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the hammock, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard; & a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our slip or simply spend the afternoon playing horseshoes in the yard or grilling on the deck.

Above all else, 'Kachina Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!

Our amenities...: Following an extensive renovation, 'Kachina Cay' now features beautiful granite countertops, glass tile back-splashes, stainless appliances, two full decks overlooking the water and Galveston State Park and much, much more. With two decks & an expansive open floor plan, the home is designed to allow large groups to comfortably relax together.

Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck!

Amenities include: 46' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed wifi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic memory foam mattress-toppers, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, a single and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and a new tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered hammock & swing, 8 person picnic table, beach chairs, boogie-boards, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!

NEW! We now have Google Chromecast at 'Kachina Cay', allowing you to stream Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, HBO Go, and more directly from your phone or tablet to the TV!

Pets: Your pets are part of your family and are always welcome in our home with no additional pet deposit. The yard has been designed to give them room to play safely and away from the water.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
Went searching for a long overdue vacation getaway to wind down summer and Labor Day and low and behold stumbled on Kachina Cay. I can confirm every single prior review and superlative used to describe the Cay and wholeheartedly recommend. Robin was very responsive, kind and allayed any and all doubt and apprehension. When you drive up the house beckons you to leave behind all worry and burden. The initial explore reveals the obvious pride in ownership and the expansive downstairs, upstairs and home itself is sound, sturdy, kid friendly and eye appealing. Nobody mentioned the hanging swing downstairs, and this is a perfect zen perch I called dibs on immediately. Ah, the underwater light off the dock is like a green glowing circle aquarium of fish freeway traffic. My advice, pack light, almost everything is provided and you can pick up anything else nearby. The beach access across from Jamica Beach entry is extraordinarily clean and the folks are all well behaved. Only regret...leaving...but we left behind a lot of laughter and good karma behind for all future guests. Looking forward to returning Robin! Thanks again! Dorothy McGee, Huffman, TX

Having stayed in a number of rental homes throughout the country, I can honestly say that this one was very nice. It was clean and shiny when we arrived. Kitchen is beautiful! Thanks so much to the owners for the thoughtfulness they put into the amenities. Loved the kayaks and bikes. It's a great place for families. It stormed a few days while we were there and I have to warn others that the wooden stairs and decking are slippery when wet especially if you are wearing rubber flip flops. Also, the seaweed is bad this year on all of the beaches. If you want to be on a nice beach that has been cleared of the seaweed, head to Stewart's Beach.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
Nachdem wir mit Ferienhäusern auch schon negative Erfahrungen gemacht haben, hatten wir unsere Erwartungen nicht zu hoch gesteckt. Doch alle Zweifel waren sofort wie weggefegt. Der erste Eindruck war einfach nur "WOW", das Haus ist großartig.

Um es kurz zu machen, wir waren begeistert und können das Haus nur jedem empfehlen, der wunderschöne Tage verleben möchte, bei denen es an nichts fehlt.

Der Vermieter ist sehr hilfsbereits und es ist alles da für einen perfekten Aufenthalt benötigt wird

Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in Kachina Cay verlebt

Viele Grüße auch Deutschland
Momme

After we already have made some ??negative experiences with vacation homes, our expectations were not too high. But by entereing the house all doubts were immediately swept away. The first impression was just "WOW", this house is gorgeous.

But let me summarize our stay with just a few words, we loved the house and can recommend it to anyone who wants to spend wonderful days without missing anything.

The owner is very nice and helpful and has almost everything you need to have a great stay.

We enjoyed an incredible week long vacation at Kachina cay.

Thanks and greeting from Germany

Owner's Response: Momme, thank you so much for the kind review and for allowing us to host your trip to the Texas Gulf Coast. Our housekeeper found a book left behind that was written in German... I'm guessing that one belongs to you! :) Let me know if you'd like me to mail it to you. Thanks again for staying at "Kachina Cay"! Sincerely, Robin and Wendy Harris

Pictures do not give this place justice, the house is gorgeous! The owner is very nice and helpful and has almost everything you need to have a great stay. If you are going there to fish off the back canal I would suggest that you chum the water to bring in some big ones. One thing else to mention the third bathroom is downstairs next to the carport. Three of my friends and myself went for three days and this was not an issue, just good to mention.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed an incredible week long vacation at Kachina cay. We frequently vacation in other countries but wanted to stay closer to home so we looked into rentals around Galveston. After lots of comparing and looking, we found Kachina Cay. Kachina Cay stood out far above and beyond comparable properties in the area, especially considering that we have pets. Robin was very helpful and responsive from the very beginning answering any questions that I had easing any worries I had about renting a house for the first time. We had very high expectations of the home from the pictures and reviews, and from the moment we got to the house and started looking around our expectations were far exceeded. I could go on and on about the house but I can sum it up by extremely beautiful, clean, and in an incredible area. The house is fully contained and left us missing nothing. The inside of the house is appointed very nice with comfortable beds and modern, inviting décor. We spent a considerable amount of time enjoying the outside of the house as well, from the comfy chairs on the deck upstairs, to the hammock downstairs that you never wanted to get out of. I spent most of my time staying up late at night fishing from the back dock, and checking my crab traps. We caught lots of catfish, a few redfish, and tons of crabs. None of them were huge but they were all very tasty. We all had an incredible time, even the puppies. I would recommend this house to anyone and we can’t wait to come back. Thanks for everything Robin.

Owner's Response: Robert, thanks so much for the kind review and for the amazing night-time photos you took from the dock. They were so good we put one on our website! I wish we'd had your photography skills for ALL of the house photos! I hope you all have a great summer and please come back and visit us again! Thanks again! -Robin & Wendy Harris

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weeks vacation! The house was very clean and the furnishings were outstanding. This is a house that anyone would be proud to own. It has everything you can possibly ask for; great location, large open concept, comfortable beds, good size bedrooms and bathrooms, nice kitchen with updated appliances and plenty of storage throughout the home, both upstairs and downstairs. The covered upper deck was especially nice as well as the deck above the boat dock. The house also has plenty of bedding, towels, wash cloths, and assorted paper products. We have rented a considerable number of bay or canal homes over the past few years and I can honestly say by far this is the best home of all. The pride of ownership is every where you look. We caught some very nice trout, red fish and flounder right off the dock both at night and during the day time. Also Robin was very pleasant to work with and also provided helpful information about the house as well as fishing locations and hot spots for eating and local entertainment. Robin also provides a personal touch by staying in touch with you before, during and after your stay. Thanks Robin for making this a special vacation. We hope to stay again in the near future. God Bless!

Car: recommended

Our beautiful waterfront home is located on one of the largest canals in the area, with fast and easy access to the beach and Galveston Bay.

Click on the map link below & you'll see just how incredible our location is... with the beachfront just down the street and Galveston Bay access less than 50 yards from our deck, 'Kachina Cay' is the perfect location for families looking to get away, while still only 10 minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, & everything Galveston island has to offer.

Jamaica Beach is one of the safest and most family friendly communities on the island. Our quaint beachfront community offers 2 restaurants, a Subway sandwich shop, 2 gas stations, a neighborhood pub, and an amazing family-run grocery store.

Golf: Formerly the Galveston Municipal Golf Course, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features a $16 million comprehensive renovation by the renowned golf course architects of Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design. Revealed in June 2008, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features the best historical aspects of the original layout, while significantly improving certain holes and overall course flow. The course highlights its unique seaside tropical feel with 18 holes meandering through upland and lowland native areas, natural wetlands habitat of beautiful Sydnor Bayou and over 500 palm trees.
