Best Location; Over 2,000 sf Home on 1 Level, RightOnTheBeach, Sleeps 14
RightOnTheBeachvr (formerly Captain Jacks) is “Right On The Beach” in beautiful and family-friendly Jamaica Beach (the best part of Galveston!)
You can’t get any closer to the water!
And you can't beat the location (10 mins from Galveston attractions, but in quiet, friendly & fun Jamaica Beach).
This large home is unique in that it’s over 2,000 sf, ON ONE LEVEL, (so you won't be climbing lots of stairs during your vacation).
Huge lot, so you’ll have plenty of privacy and space.
Another cool feature of this house are the incredible decks. With shaded and unshaded areas, the deck on the main level is massive - 50 ft long & 12 ft deep. Plus there's a large upper "Captain's" deck with equally increasingly views. The house has about 1,300 sf of decking.
The interior of the home has a spacious and inviting open floor concept.
4 bedrooms (3 are very large) and 3 baths. Downstairs, additional outdoor hot and cold shower and stall for cleaning up from the beach.
Perfect for multiple families. Well-equipped kitchen.
BONUS: The beach behind RightOnTheBeachvr is in a specially designated area where vehicles are prohibited during the weekends (so the beach remains relatively uncrowded even in the prime season). Plus, Jamaica Beach Police frequently patrol the beach, so the beach area remains family-friendly and fun.
New Owners (March 2018) have made numerous improvements, including new paint in & out; new textured granite (with a unique and gorgeous peninsula slab); new big screen TV (with premium cable/Netflix/Amazon/Xbox One S w/ lots of games); new imported teak dining table & chairs; all new family room furniture; new lighting; new linens and towels; fully stocked kitchen; and more.
Great air conditioning!
Excellent WiFi /Internet.

My name is Sabrina and I love decorating and interior design. I take pride in ownership and maintaining a clean, inviting & appealing home. Of course, I just love the beach. I think there are few places better than being right on the beach for making cherished memories with family and friends. Science says that the surf and sand does the mind and body good. My husband and I are real estate investors and we live in North Houston. We have 3 adult children and 7 pretty amazing grandchildren. And we have a cute, little white Maltese named Zoey. We are originally from Southern California and have lived for many years in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have always liked living near the water. And now we couldn't possibly be any closer to the beach and we are excited to share our lovely beach home (RightOnTheBeachvr) with you.
Sabrina purchased this House in 2018
Why Sabrina chose Jamaica Beach
Simple, it's Right On The Beach! - You can't get any closer to the beach; - One of the very best locations on Galveston; - House is over 2,000 sf on a single level (why climb stairs endlessly?); - Open concept floor plan; - Amazing decks (over 1,300 sf); - Updated; - Clean & Fresh; - New linens, towels, kitchen items, furniture, TV, - Beach area behind home prohibits vehicles during peak season; - Family-friendly, fun, and safe area.
What makes this House unique
The location is what appealed to us about this house. As well as the fact that it's large and not split up into two levels ... we wanted our family to be together on the same level (but with large bedrooms where people can rest and relax as desired). Plus the massive decks that overlook the beach only a few steps away ... that view never gets old. RightOnTheBeachvr offers an ideal place to congregate in open-concept living spaces, as well as the privacy of large, quiet, separate bedrooms.

A Dream Family Vacation!
Our first family reunion was a huge success at Capt. Jack's! Waking up every morning to the beachfront view was picture perfect, and the house provided great family gathering areas for our crew. We had such a wonderful, relaxing time at the house, we barely left to go into town for the entire week. Also, the owners were were great to work with. When we weren't lounging on the beach, we were absorbing the atmosphere from the shady, breezy deck. The kitchen was well appointed, the bedrooms were clean and quiet, and the zoned air conditioning rocked - giving us welcome relief from the heat. I would highly recommend this property!!
Amazing Camp for the whole family!
Words can not describe how much we enjoyed this camp and the location of it on the beach. Excellent accommodations, kitchen equipment, linens, beach towels, chairs, toys........ can’t wait to rent again.
Great place - will definitely stay again
The home is directly on the beach and has everything you need ...the new owners have done a wonderful job in making this place a relaxing an enjoyable place to stay
Great house right on the beach. Beautiful views from the huge porch. Easy beach access.
We really enjoyed our stay. Great location, easy beach access. Plenty of room inside the house for the whole family with cold AC.
Another GREAT Stay at Captain Jack's
This is about our 4 or 5 year to stay at Captain Jack's on Jamaica Beach. As you might have guessed by now, we love this place. We were not able to take our grandchildren this year, but did go with some friends and had just as much fun. Linda (the manager) is so easy to work with. She always responds with any questions we might have. Our friends now love this little piece of heaven as much as we do and are already talking about coming back next year. Thanks Kristen and, of course, Linda for making our stay so enjoyable.
Large Home Right on the Beach
Wonderful home that worked well for our large group. Everything was as advertised and the home was clean and comfortable. Our family really enjoyed the decks and access to the beach steps away from the home. The owner was extremely responsive while we were staying at the property and the AC needed to be repaired. After the install of a totally new AC the home was cool and comfortable. I would definitely recommend.
Very close to horseback riding, mini golf, great restaurants, souvenir shopping and more!
