First off, I am not Amy or Jayda. Amy is the property manager, and Jayda is the assistant property manager. I am the home owner. My name is Glenn. I grew up in Baytown and have always enjoyed camping, fishing, and just in general being outdoors. I work for GE in the Water & Process Division. I love the water and could not wait to build my home on the lake where I currently live, but I have always had a very special attraction to Galveston. I believe it is primarily due to the variety of wildlife in and around the water along with the ever changing conditions of the beach. I used to take kids and adults on educational beach tours and show them the delicate ecosystems. With some people who don’t have a good appreciation of the changing conditions of the beach they may look at the Sargasso which occasionally washes up on the beach and think “how nasty”. What they don’t understand is the amazing diversity of life that exists in this floating seaweed. If you catch it before the surf, you can find pipe fish, file fish, seahorses, Sargasso fish, lobsters and many other creatures living in it. If you’re a fisherman, try fishing under the Sargasso for mahi mahi.
Amy Quincey or Jayda Spires purchased this house in 2001
This area appealed to me due to the wide clean beaches and great fishing. The clarity of the water is also much better than other beaches in Galveston. I grew up fishing around the San Louis Pass area and have always noticed that the water closer to San Louis Pass appeared to be much clearer. Many times driving to the Pass I would get to the Sea Wall where the water looked muddy, but in front of my house the water was clear. We also appreciate the quiet restfulness in the mornings and evenings sitting on the porch swing away from the crowded beaches and noise. When I first started looking for a house in Galveston, I considered buying on the bay side or at least further from the surf which would have been much less expensive and lower maintenance. I am so glad that I didn't do that. It would be like having an ice cream cone just out of reach.
As my daughters grew up, we spent most weekends at the beach house kite bugging. If you don’t know what this is, you fly a large kite which pulls a three wheel buggy up and down the beach. Due to the quality and size of the beach, this beach and far East beach were the only beaches that were wide enough to consistently use to kite buggy. It has also been great to be so close to the Pass because now we will spend the days fishing, go back home for a bit, and then back down to the Pass for floundering at night.
We had been looking for a while for a place that will take pets and there are very few that were okay with 3 dogs, but this place did. The deposit was pretty high, but our dogs are well behaved and don't shed much so wasn't worried about losing the deposit and we didn't! We spent 4 days here and had a blast. Dogs got to see and play in the ocean for the first time and kids got a real beach again after our trip to the Keys this summer (not much in the way of beaches in the Keys). Amy is easy to work with and prompt on questions, recommend no doubt!
I first stayed in this house with my family in March 2014. I loved it so much that I had to return for a girls retreat and getaway at the beginning of this summer 2015 and am looking forward to my next visit. This house is open and the view from the kitchen, dining and living room is gorgeous. You can see water for miles and there is an outside deck off the living room with a swing where I could sit for hours staring at the ocean!
The living area is so comfortable and pretty and inviting and has a big screen tv. The manager Amy is great and will make sure all your needs are met. She makes herself available if you have any questions or needs! The kitchen is open and nice and stocked with all the necessities. The bedrooms are great too. Very comfortable with good beds.
This is the type of house that is great rain or shine because it has such a relaxing feel and perfect for just hanging out! It is a great escape!
Our family spent our Christmas in this clean. spacious, homey beach house in Galveston. We fit 10 people very comfortably. The living room was open and had plenty of room for family gatherings. We spent our mornings on the upper deck enjoying coffee and expansive views of the Gulf. We want to thank the owners for sharing their beautiful beach front home with us helping us to make lasting family memories!
Had an absolutely wonderful time at this house. Property and house was clean and very well maintained when we got here. Owner provides nice little ammenities (coffee, creamer, sugar, hats, grill, towels, loads of movies and games, etc.) Everything was just as described on the website. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and felt like a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle along the seawall. Woke up every morning and had coffee and breakfast out on the swing on the porch and had a beautiful view. The beach is literally just steps away and was very clean (not a lot of seaweed). Would definitely recommend this house. We had an AWESOME rental experience and a relaxing vacation.
Can't wait to go back next summer!!!
Sister n law found this quite lovely house for our Memorial Day Getaway and we were all blown away with appearance and how close to the beach it was. Everything in the house was so lovely, it was all set up so nicely, we had everything at our fingertips, towels, dishes, etc.. The Property was very maintain, house was clean and i loved just waking up drinking my coffee while sitting on the upper deck swing. We will definitely come back. I will also be recommending this proper to good people to come and relax and enjoy..Thank You So Much..
