About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-18)

This beautiful Beach house remodeled as of January 2016, come down for Mardi Gras or a family getaway. It’s conveniently located, 1 block from the beach, and a 70 Feet walk to Spa, Gym, Liquor Store, Bar, Valero and Laundry. House is well equipped with all amenities of home. Enjoy the beach view while you relax, listening to the sounds of the ocean. Have fun visiting Galveston’s attractions: Schliterban, Moody Gardens (Aquarium) for the kids or walk along the historic Strand and browse in the gift shops or indulge in the fine restaurants.

House has a great open floor plan with a retro look and a laid back vibe! The Property consists of a five bedroom and two and a half bath house (3 Bedroom/2 Bath upstairs and 2 Bedroom & 1/2 Bath Downstairs). The downstairs adds an additional 600 sq-ft (I do not rent this out to other people at the same time). The downstairs has a bedroom with a queen bed and a game room (pool table) that doubles as a bedroom which includes a sleeper sofa and a mini fridge. Upstairs sleeps 13 and downstairs sleeps 5. Check in 3:30 pm & Check out 11am. The blue chair in the downstairs bedroom converts into a pull out bed for a child (just like a pull out sofa). House has: an outdoor shower, washer and dryer, games, toys, books for kids, dishwasher, toaster, and blender for those mixed drinks. We offer clean quality linens and comforters, Cable TV in every room. 1 DVD Player. Free wireless on site. Large wrap around deck for lounging. I also own the vacant lot next door for extra land for kids to run around.

The property rents 2 ways: Entire house, prices are as listed or for smaller space rent the upstairs only at a reduced rate, this is only allowed up to 9 people.

Thank you and enjoy your stay!!

Please do not call after 9PM Central time as we have 2 children and do want to wake them up. Thank you for being considerate

About Donald

Meredith and I welcome you to our beach house! We met back packing in Switzerland and fell in love with each other and moved to the Heights in Houston. We then found our cozy beach town Jamaica Beach and bought and fell in love with the house. Have FUN!!

Donald purchased this house in 2009

Why Donald chose Galveston

Jamaica Beach is a premier location for vacations and to get away, yet close enough to Galveston.

What makes this house unique

Bring your friendly and well behaved pets!! However we do charge a small daily fee.

A Most Awesome Trip

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as it was posted here on the website. Don was very helpful to make sure we knew everything we needed before our trip. He stayed in constant communication with me. The property was kept up, the rooms were kept clean, and I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wanted to stay in Jamaica Beach. We were only 10 minutes away from the busy seawall, which was just enough to enjoy our uncrowded beach near the house. Our event held 15 people, which was just right for this house!

Grate place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, would definitely stay again. The deck was big enough where we could lounge outside. Place had nice sheets and comforters. If you want to fish and hang out it’s a good place to go theres a big bait shop ¾ mile down the road. The owners sent us a travel list of stuff to bring, it helped us out. Place is spacious, I’ll be back next year.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in this fully equipped Beach house! We had 8 adults and 3 children (the kids were all under 3 years old) and the house had room to spare. The common rooms were spacious and comfortable. The beach was a short walk away and the kids LOVED it! We played at the beach during the day and then after the babies were in bed we stayed out on the beautiful deck and enjoyed the ocean breeze. I can't wait to stay here again!

A great place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time.The house is very spacious and comfortable and kid friendly. The living plus kitchen area was perfect for a large group gathering. There was a lot of parking area. It was close enough to the beach. The deck was great to hangout in the evenings. The owner was very responsive during the rental process and when we had an issue . The only "problem" was the microwave location, it was too high for people(short) to reach easily. The separate downstairs bedroom with pool table was fun for young adults to hang out....A great house to rent for a large family union!

Our 2016 family vacation in Galveston, Texas

  • 3 of 5

It was my families first time in Galveston, Texas. We rented the home for our 2016 family vacation. The house is pretty clean and spacious. The owner just upgraded to wood flooring, which was great due to the sand that the kids bring back to the home. The home included all home necessities needed. We really enjoyed our stay at the home and recommend thehome to other families whom are looking to have a great time in Galveston.

There are little things that did need upgrading or fixing such as the air conditioning system, dehumidifier and blinds. But other than that it's a great vacation home.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! I was unaware that the air conditioning system, dehumidifier and blinds needed to be fixed. The downstairs window unit went out and I was told buy my cleaning lady not these renters . As soon as I heard these items needed to be fixed I had my contractor there the next day. The upstairs central ubit was working excellent. See ya soon!

Enjoyed our stay in Jamaica Beach

  • 4 of 5

The listing for this rental was accurate and all we expected. The short drive out to Jamaica Beach was great to separate from the more crowded area in Galveston proper. The owner is quick to respond to any additional inquiries you might have. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Some of our favorite attractions were Schlitterbahn, the Railroad Museum, and Moody Gardens. Our favorite restaurants included Landry's and the Jungle Cafe, but the stop we had to make twice was La King's confectionary. Our favorite activity though was enjoying dinner on the deck at home and time on the beach with family.
