About melissa eggleston
Owners, Bobby and Melissa Eggleston , thus the cottage name, Egg's Nest, have dreamed of owning a piece of Galveston Island for almost thirty years! We were married in 1986 after graduating from Rice University in Houston. Bobby played baseball for the Owls and Melissa enjoyed being a number one fan! We have been very busy with our four active children. They have brought so much joy to our lives that we thought it was the right time to begin the next phase by making memories at the beach! Both of us are lifelong teachers and really enjoy having wholesome fun with our family. Where else can you do that then at the beach?

Why melissa eggleston chose Jamaica Beach
Bobby, a native Galvestonian, B.O.I., grew up on the island , playing sports and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere that island living brings to all of us. Melissa only dreamed of it! We spent a lot of time and energy looking for the right place for our family. This place was perfect! It is convenient to all of the amenities in Jamaica Beach. Being across the street from the pool and marina and only a half mile from the bird sanctuary and the beach has it ALL for us! The pool is an added bonus that was just added to the neighborhood last year. It is the best way to cool off in the summertime. We love the high ceilings in the living areas and fabulous front porch. Our families come from all over the USA to make special memories . We LOVE that!
What makes this Cottage unique
Being an hour from Houston, makes it convenient to travelers and Houstonians. We wanted to have a second home that we could actually get to quickly. Relaxing with family is very important to us. All of the cliche activities to do at the beach sound like fun to us! We just want to hang out and relax! Watching the sun rise and sun set from The Island is amazing. The convenience of the the amenities has made such a difference to us.

Perfect home and location for a relaxing holiday
We, our parents and our kids had a lot of fun at and around this house. Beach is 2 mins and Galveston is 25 minutes away. We wished we had stayed longer. :)
Week long vacation
We had an awesome time in the eggs nest. The home was comfortable and the ac was cold and worked awesome.
We will definitely be renting this home again in the future it was close enough to town but very close to the beach the bay and the community pool which the kids loved.
The porch and under the home were fantastic places and we really enjoyed sitting there different times during the day and evenings.
What a wonderful review! So glad that y’all felt comfortable and had fun! Thanks so much for taking such good care of The Egg’s Nest. We love it there. Please make sure to let me know when you are planning to come back , we will give you an incentive! Thanks again, Melissa 🌴�
The home is so beautiful, from the decorations to the location all of it! The owner was very responsive to my emails and very friendly! Couldn’t have asked for a better first time renting a home for vacation and we will definitely return.
Family vacation 2019
We stayed 7 days 6 nights. Great location but my favorite part of the whole week was sitting out on the covered deck drinking my coffee watching the boats come in and leave the marina. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The house was great had everything we needed. The owners were great and answered any questions we had. We were about 3-4 blocks from the beach just a short drive. I would definitely recommend the Egg’s Nest to anyone!
Our time in the Eggs Nest
We had a great week away from home in this cozy 3 bedroom rental. Lots of living space for our family time and a gated porch upstairs to keep the littles from wondering off. So nice to have a dishwasher, washer and dryer available! Would definitely recommend this place.
A Perfect Place
This house was decorated so cute...the owner Melissa was awesome. Answered every question we had where to go, what to do how to get there. Could not have ask for a better 5 days . Has a awesome deck on the front great place for morning coffee, walking distance to a swim pooling a park which was perfect for our grandchildren. A place we would want to stay again! Thanks Melissa for sharing your home with us!
Galveston and Jamaica Beach have lots of attractions for " outdoor " people. Jamaica Beach is located on the West End of Galveston Island where you can escape the traffic and pace of the big city. Easy access to fishing, kayaking, boating, swimming( pool across the street, check dates for business), surfing, beach combing, birding, and golfing!
In Galveston proper, you can enjoy catch a show at The Texas Opry House built in 1894, restaurants galore, The Pleasure Pier , Schlitterbahn Water Park and Moody Gardens , to name a few. Literally, something for everyone!
