About Colleen Majoue

Reese and I love to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and head south to the Island of Galveston. Just being near the Gulf of Mexico is relaxing and when we are on island time we can live life at a slower pace. Visiting Galveston year round is great. We especially love the off seasons - some of the best days of the year.

Colleen Majoue purchased this house in 2010

Why Colleen Majoue chose Jamaica Beach

We think this property has a great view of the water, it a comfortable size for families with children, we have a shady fenced yard for children and our four legged fur babies as well. We like parking our cars in the shade under the house, especially in the summer time.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved the house. Everything was so clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend your beach house to our friends and will be returning soon.

Great relaxing beach house with everything you need to feel at home

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific property for celebrating Thanksgiving with the family. The house is comfortable, with a large living area featuring plenty of couches to gather. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. It's got a great yard for playing soccer or throwing the football... and it includes a fenced in yard that was great and enabled us to bring our sweet dogs. It has a nice large balcony where the family could eat outside and enjoy. It is an easy walk to the beach and made for a perfect vacation. Thanks Colleen! We hope to come back.

wonderful house, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great property, very relaxing. Looking forward to renting again. House was well supplied and very close to the beach. There were five of us and our dog. We could all sit in the living room comfortably. Bedrooms were large. The fenced yard was great for our dog. If you are looking for a great vacation in Galveston this is the house for you.

Everything You Need For a Peaceful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults, 2 teens, 2 elementary aged kids, and two dogs - this house was PERFECT! Everyone had enough room, there were games and movies, a kitchen with every utensil/pot/pan that you need. Everything was very clean, plenty of towels. The house is located away from the main hub of Galveston, but that suited us perfectly. Beach access is right across the road. You could walk, but we chose to drive due to the kids and all our stuff we carried with us. The gated area was nice for the dogs to have some space to run around, too. We spent one day in town and spent the rest of the time on the beach. It was amazing, would recommend, would rent again.
