Overview

Jamaica Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 8, wifi, kayaks, bicycles, underwater light

Our home is located on the West End of Galveston- the perfect place to find peace on the bay and beach. It is close enough to town to enjoy the many sights and sounds that Galveston has to offer!

The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms each have a queen sized bed with a television. Linens for the beds are provided, along with towels for the bathrooms at no extra charge. There is a washer and dryer to use for your convenience. There is a new television in the living room, with a big comfortable couch to unwind on after a long relaxing day. The kitchen has all you would ever need to make a delicious dinner. You can cook the fish or crabs you caught right out on the canal!

Since this is a canal home, we have a deck downstairs with a boat sling. Feel free to bring your own boat when you stay. Cruising through the canals is an experience you don’t want to miss. You can also fish straight off the dock; we have an underwater light installed just for that purpose. There is a wide variety of fish that swim through our canals in Jamaica beach. A cleaning station on the dock allows you to clean your catch right outside a few feet from where you are fishing! If you do not have a fishing pole, don’t worry we have some you can use.

We also have a crab trap available for setting up right off the dock. When you catch them, you can cook them with the big crab boiling pot up in the kitchen. We have a grill as well, for outdoor cooking.

There is a ladder on the dock so you can swim right in the canal if you fancy.

Four bicycles and two kayaks and a hammock are there for your enjoyment.

Jamaica Beach is the neighboring subdivision next to the State Park. The local police force gives you peace of mind, with there around the clock patrolling of the area.

Galveston is just down the road with all of its’ famous attractions. Schlitterbahn has its’ indoor water park open year-round. Moody Garden has its’ aquarium, IMAX theater, and other fun family attractions. There are museums scattered throughout the island including a flight museum. The Pleasure Pier is an amusement park and restaurants over the Gulf of Mexico.

Come stay with us. You will want to come back for more fun and relaxation away from the everyday hustle of life.

About Nancy

We wanted a weekend get away from Houston and found our home. We came every Friday until Sunday and just could not get enough of the fishing, beach and the wonderful island life. So we decided to move permanently to Jamaica Beach and have not had any regrets.

Nancy purchased this house in 2003

Why Nancy chose Galveston

We decided to rent our home so others could relax and have family vacations like we did .

Wonderful family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family goes to Galveston almost every year. However, this is the first time we rented a beach house. Let me just say, this will be the ONLY way we go from now on. This beach house was perfect for our family. They provided everything we needed. Our son-in-law loved the crab traps and made us home-made crab dip! The kayaks were a hit, and the water hose outside made it convenient to wash off the sand on our beach items and ourselves before going into the house! The neighborhood was nice and was a 2-3 minute drive to the beach. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen and there was plenty of room for everyone to eat. Having a washer and dryer downstairs came in very handy to wash our beach towels and suits. Everyone agreed this was the best vacation we have had to Galveston. My husband and I particularly liked that it was away from the busy Seawall but close enough to drive in for a restaurant or Wal-Mart. The local store in Jamaica Beach was clean and carried almost everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone with a family. The only thing we did not do is the swimming pool but we drove by and it looked nice and clean. Thank you again Nancy!

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six, ranging in age from 10 to 73, enjoyed this house for a Labor Day birthday celebration. The kayaks and fishing were a big hit. Perfect getaway spot!

Jamaica Beach Haven

  • 4 of 5

July 4th weekend is always a big celebration for my family. The house was very clean when we got there and cool; that makes a big difference when you walking up and down the stairs to unload. The bedrooms were spacious with enough room for the 8 of us. The kitchen, which is fully equipped, was big enough that the cooks weren't stepping on top of each other. The downstairs area is great for cooking out and fishing off the boat dock. Last, but not least, Nancy, the owner, was very responsive when I had a question. I would definitely recommend this house to all of my friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you Phyllis. I have found the same thing in the house. The arrangement makes it very easy to cook and entertain. We have had our large family there for Thanksgiving and Christmas and did not feel crowded. I am glad your family was able to keep the 4th of July fun at our home. Sincerely, Nancy

Great relaxing beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 6. The kids loved to kayak and fish right off the dock. The view was amazing on the upstairs deck. We were even lucky enough to catch some blue crabs which was the teenage boys greatest joy. Having a washer and dryer was wonderful with 4 kids. It was great to have the beach so close. The kids were never bored. A full kitchen so you can eat at home or venture out. We did have some amazing seafood in Galveston. We definitely plan on returning next year and plan to stay here again! Thanks for a great time!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you were able to make so many family memories. That is what I want to happen for everyone staying in our home. Crabbing is my favorite thing, also. Catching crab right out the back door is fun. Please remember to ask for the return renters discount next year when you reserve your dates. Thanks, Nancy :)

Map

Car: necessary

The beach is only a short ride away! You can even use the bikes that we have available to ride for that purpose. The beach is great for sunning, shelling, swimming and shark-tooth hunting! We have beach chairs for you to use, as well. Riding around Jamaica beach on a bike (or just walking!) is a relaxing experience, with the bay right there next to you. Try getting out around sunset. It is a breath-taking view.

A children’s playground is only a couple blocks away. It was recently re-built from the storm, which means that all of the equipment is new.

Feel like eating out? About one mile away, in Jamaica Village is a restaurant called the Blue Water Grill that specializes in anything from salads to pizza. Forget something but don’t want to drive back into town? Don’t worry; there is a local grocery store down the main road called Seven Seas.

Other Activities: Shopping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, boating
