About Robin Harris
My wife, Wendy, and I love Galveston and all that it has to offer our family. We enjoy taking our kids to the beach, fishing and kayaking at the house and riding our bikes around Jamaica Beach. Having young children, we are frequent visitors to Moody Gardens, the Galveston Children's Museum and on the dolphin watching tours at The Strand, but some of our best times are when we are simply grilling at the house while the kids play in the yard or feed the seagulls on the deck.

What a wonderful place to stay! Our family had a wonderful time! The house was immaculate! The yard being fenced in was a bonus. The beds were comfortable, and all the appliances were in good working order, except for the water on the fridge, which was not a big deal at all. The bathrooms were nice too! The spiral staircase was a little scary at first, but after the second time up and down, we were pros. The baby gate was PERFECT for the staircase. We would definitely recommend this place!
Thanks for letting us host your trip to Galveston! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we can have you back again on a future trip!
Wonderful Vacation Home
The home was easy to access in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. The property was exactly as listed with many family friendly things to do. We fished, kayaked, and went right across the main highway to Jamaica Beach for some fun in the sun! At night we came back to rest in the very comfortable beds. We are already making plans to come back!
Thanks so much! It was our pleasure to host your stay!
House was great. Would definetly stay again. Property owner was very accommodating and easy to get ahold of.
Very clean and comfortable house. Neighborhood is pleasant and was very quiet during the time we were there. Owner is very responsive to any questions or concerns.
Thanks so much! It was our pleasure to have you stay!
Wonderful place to stay
We wanted to celebrate our boys birthdays (4&6) at the beach...... We kept going back and forth between this house and another house not far from this one that was directly on the beach. We are so happy we chose this house, such a beautiful property and so much to do! My boys both caught a few fish in their pajamas first thing both mornings we stayed. The kayaks are really easy to get out and use and everything was just so family friendly. We invited our neighbors to come celebrate with us and they brought their 13 and 16 year old... Even they put their phones down and had a blast. Can't wait to come back and stay again. My boys had a wonderful birthday weekend!
Thanks so much for allowing us to host your trip to Galveston! I'm glad the boys' birthday trip was a success! I hope we can have you back again on a future trip to the island!
Property was clean and well taken care of. Some of the blinds were missing a few blades but nothing too bad. The dock and the access to the canal could not have been more convenient. The beach is about two minutes away in car and the area is very well cared for. The house itself is great for families with kids (as is ours.) Robin, the property manager, sent us clear check-in instructions as well as very detailed and useful information about the surrounding areas. We will definitely recommend this property to our friends and family.
Thanks so much for allowing us to host your trip to Galveston! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! And thanks for letting me know about the vertical blind blades... we keep extra in the attic for that very reason! I hope we can have you back on a future trip to Galveston!
Our beautiful waterfront home is one of a very few located on a lagoon (the water equivalent of a cul-de-sac) within Jamaica Beach. This affords guests unobstructed views of a large body of water, perfect for swimming and kayaking, with limited boat traffic.
Click on the map link below & you'll see just how incredible our location is... with the beachfront just down the street and Galveston Bay access less than 50 yards from our deck, 'Tortuga Cay' is the perfect location for families looking to get away, while still only 10-15 minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, & everything Galveston island has to offer.
Within Jamaica Beach, bikes and golf carts are great options! To reach most of the restaurants and tourist attractions in Galveston, you will need a car though.
Uber is available on the island. If you aren't already a member, you can sign up
Jamaica Beach is one of the safest and most family friendly communities on the island. Our quaint beachfront community offers 4 restaurants, a Subway sandwich shop, 2 gas stations, a neighborhood pub, and an amazing family-run grocery store.

Revealed in June 2008, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features the best historical aspects of the original layout, while significantly improving certain holes and overall course flow. The course highlights its unique seaside tropical feel with 18 holes meandering through upland and lowland native areas, natural wetlands habitat of beautiful Sydnor Bayou and over 500 palm trees.
