Overview

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.

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.

Nice but has the potential to be so much more.

  • 4 of 5

Booking the beach house was very easy thanks to Don's help. The location is fantastic. It is close to the beach as well as all the amenities available in the town of Jamaica Beach. The architecture of the beach house is nice, lots of windows. However the kitchen is in need of a major remodel. The dishwasher is very small and leaks. The microwave is practically unreachable. The cabinets are old and it is hard to find stuff inside. The oven needs a major cleaning. The sinks are very stained and need to be replaced.

Owner's Response: It sounds like over all you enjoyed stay. I have scheduled a remodel on the kitchen in the last week of September. I was unaware the dishwasher leaks but I have contacted an appliance guy to fix it. We will be changing the sink and kitchen faucet and redoing the flooring. The microwave is about the same height as a Microwave vent hood... not sure what I could do but put it on the counter and that would clutter the countertops. I truly care about the appearance of the kitchen but do not want to kill the timeless aspect of this house. Many people love the fact that it brings you back in time. Thanks for coming!

This house was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a perfect location. We found that it was a very cozy place to stay. People around us were friendly. The amount of people we had fit perfectly. It had everything a large family needed. The rooms were spacious, the view was awesome, and it was very homey! It is located away from the busy sea wall. Knowing we could just walk about a block or so to the beach was great. Most of my famiy that came to stay have never been to Jamaica Beach or Galveston for that matter. I will definitely recommend this house for someone wanting space, quiet, and sounds of the ocean! Thank you Mr. Sorrells for a great experience.

Relaxing Getaway at Jamaica Beach!

  • 4 of 5

My family had a wonderfully fun and relaxing week at Jamaica Beach/Galveston in this spacious and inviting beach house. Easy access to the beach, plenty of room and storage space (pantry shelves). Large deck was perfect for relaxing in the evening sea-breezes and watching the pelicans fly in formation over the house. Heaven!

My only disappointment was with the over-all water pressure, especially in the outside shower - wasn't really enough to rinse off with...we used the nearby hose.

Best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful beach house. It is within walking distance to the beach but still far enough away to be safe if traveling with young children. We have been renting this house for 6 years now and this is our favorite vacation spot. The house is always clean and has plenty of eminities to keep a family of 12-14 comfortable for an entire vacation.This will always be my favorite vacation rental!
