About Jeanna & Troy Leek
As travelers ourselves, we're excited for the opportunity to allow people to visit Galveston Island for a reasonable price; the hotel prices can be ridiculous here in the Summer, and it's better to have all of the comforts of home! We like sharing our home by the beach with others.We both love boating and anything that has to do with the water! We also enjoy cooking, strength training, scuba diving sailing, all other water sports!
Jeanna & Troy Leek purchased this House in 2012
Why Jeanna & Troy Leek chose San Jacinto
We purchased this property to have a place just steps from the beach. We have lived in Galveston for over 17 years and love the Island life. We hope to share the experience with you!

Clean and comfortable
Great little house, just a short walk from the beach. Hose by the door for easy clean-up. The two bathrooms, one up and one downstairs, are nicely appointed with towels and in shower dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and body gel. One firm bed, one softer so you have a choice. Communication with the owners was excellent. Even though they were out of town, they had lots of back numbers and a home warranty service in place to take care of any issues if there had been any problems. Loved being able to walk to the beach for sunrises and sunsets. Thank you for a lovely weekend.
Great place just minutes from the beach
We had a really great time staying at this property. The property is a carriage house behind the owners' house (Jeanna & Troy - they are very nice!). It is a recently renovated two story, two bedroom, two bath house with a small enclosed back yard. The property is pet friendly - we brought our bulldogs and they loved it!
Pretty much everything you could want is provided, so don't worry about that.
The house is perfect if you want to spend time on the beach! You are about a 5 minute walk from the beach, about 12 - 15 minute walk from Flip Flops (a bar on the beach to the northeast) and maybe 20-35 minute walk to Pleasure Pier (to the southwest). The Strand is about a 5 minute drive to the north.
Overall, if you are looking for a great space next to the beach, or this is your first time going to Galveston and you want to be able to get to some key 'hot' spots quickly, this is a great place to consider, esp. is you have pets!
Two things to be aware of (not negatives, just observations) there is no wash/dryer, so bring enough clothes. Troy and Jeanna provide plenty of linens, so that isn't an issue. But if you pack thinking you can re-wash clothes, you might be short some outfits. Second, the house a carriage house, so it faces the alley behind the street....it can be hard to find at first, so keep that in mind as you travel.
Great place, perfect location!
It was easy and seamless, great experience!
Perfect Getaway Home!
This was the perfect home for a little getaway! Beautifully decorated and very clean. The location was perfect and photos of the home are accurate. Highly recommend!
Loved it much.
I love it. Will definitely be back. It s the little details such as individual remote controlled air conditioners in each room and the kitchen and DVD player that makes this place a little gem. An of course the amazing location and our gracious hosts.
Great get away
This was a great spot to stay. The walk to the beach was just a couple blocks away I will be coming back soon
This house is close to 3 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) Sunflower Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also just over 1 block to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood!
I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!
There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (3 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located just out from the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental. But if you don't want to rents them, we provide 8 bag chairs at the Blue Crab bungalow, that you can bring to the beach or use for whatever you would like during your stay.
Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Also entertainment is always just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)
