Following an extensive renovation, Jamaica Beach's most-requested vacation home, 'Kachina Cay', is now back & even better than before!
Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Kachina Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'
'Kachina Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak from our dock right into the wildlife preserve at Galveston State Park (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the hammock, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard; & a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our slip or simply spend the afternoon playing horseshoes in the yard or grilling on the deck.
Above all else, 'Kachina Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!
(Please note... if 'Kachina Cay' is not available for the dates of your stay, our second home 'Tortuga Cay' is located just across the canal and features the same high standards and amenities, with a great location on the water. The rates are identical for both houses and you can view that listing at http://www.homeaway.com/p3871822)
Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck!
Fishing Guide Service: If you want to hit the water for a guided fishing excursion, our professional guide service is available to pick you up right at our pier for a full day or half day bay fishing trip. Just walk right downstairs and hop on the boat... it doesn't get more convenient than that! Simply inquire when reserving your vacation and we'll take care of the rest!
Our amenities...: Following an extensive renovation, 'Kachina Cay' now features beautiful granite countertops, glass tile back-splashes, stainless appliances, two full decks overlooking the water and Galveston State Park and much, much more. With two decks & an expansive open floor plan, the home is designed to allow large groups to comfortably relax together.
A note from the owners for parents traveling with small children... we have a 4-year old, 3-year old and 6-month old, so we know what it's like to travel with kids and have designed this home with them in mind. We've taken great care to ensure our home allows children to play safely AND allows parents to enjoy their vacation without constant worry. Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water and street. We also have a high chair and pack-n-play available for your use (just make sure to bring crib sheets).
Amenities include: 46' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed wifi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic king mattresses, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, 2 single kayaks and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and a tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered hammock & swing, 8 person picnic table, beach chairs, boogie-boards, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!
