About Jackie

As a beach person, it was only natural that we searched out Galveston to see what it was all about. We loved it and decided that was the kind of work I would really enjoy... building and renting on the beach! Well, it is forty years and 19 houses later and we are down to our last house. This is the first house we did not build, but the location was so terrific we decided this was the house we want to grow old in.

Why Jackie chose Texas Gulf Coast

We have had several homes in Galveston. We always buy front row beach houses because of the accessibility to the beach. The sound of the waves and the views are spectacular. This is by far our favorite home.

What makes this house unique

29 steps to the beach!!!!!

huge wraparound deck with shaded pergolas.

huge great room (900 sq feet)

huge yard

fantastic private location

2 acre lot

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spot. Easy driving distance to Galveston and yet a quiet stretch of beach. The house can easily take a number of people while offering privacy to individuals and the spot just couldn't get any more beautiful. There were so many wildflowers, little bunnies, seabirds. It was wonderful.

Wonderful home! Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! My family just finished our vacation here, and we already miss the view! The house was located in a serene, secluded spot along the beach- perfect for our children to swim in the waves and collect seashells on the sand. We often had the area all to ourselves! We loved taking turns relaxing in the hammock on the full wrap around deck! With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, we also had plenty of space inside! The great room is very open and spacious. There is even a kids corner with toys and books. We love this house! Jacque was a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to renting her home again in the future!

Great beachfront home for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was on the beach with a very nice boardwalk path across the dune to the beach! The back deck was perfect for sun bathing or just watching the waves and pelicans.

Easily accommodated 8 family members for a week and we all had a great time. No problems with the home and we would not hesitate in renting again.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed my home. So many renters tell me about their great experiences, but don't always think to write in a review. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to share your thoughts.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 6 adults and 3 children as part of a family beach vacation. Our stay was wonderful and relaxing---the house is beachfront and the wide, sandy beach is just a few steps away. We loved sitting in the hammocks and reading, and we watched a meteor shower from the deck. The house was kid-friendly and had many toys, books, and activities for them. Working with Jacque was a pleasure, and she was always immediately responsive to our needs.
