Property description

Our home is located on the West End of Galveston- the perfect place to find peace on the bay and beach. It is close enough to town to enjoy the many sights and sounds that Galveston has to offer!

The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms each have a queen sized bed with a television. Linens for the beds are provided, along with towels for the bathrooms at no extra charge. There is a washer and dryer to use for your convenience. There is a new television in the living room, with a big comfortable couch to unwind on after a long relaxing day. The kitchen has all you would ever need to make a delicious dinner. You can cook the fish or crabs you caught right out on the canal!

Since this is a canal home, we have a deck downstairs with a boat sling. Feel free to bring your own boat when you stay. Cruising through the canals is an experience you don’t want to miss. You can also fish straight off the dock; we have an underwater light installed just for that purpose. There is a wide variety of fish that swim through our canals in Jamaica beach. A cleaning station on the dock allows you to clean your catch right outside a few feet from where you are fishing! If you do not have a fishing pole, don’t worry we have some you can use.

We also have a crab trap available for setting up right off the dock. When you catch them, you can cook them with the big crab boiling pot up in the kitchen. We have a grill as well, for outdoor cooking.

There is a ladder on the dock so you can swim right in the canal if you fancy.
Four bicycles and two kayaks and a hammock are there for your enjoyment.

Jamaica Beach is the neighboring subdivision next to the State Park. The local police force gives you peace of mind, with there around the clock patrolling of the area.

Galveston is just down the road with all of its’ famous attractions. Schlitterbahn has its’ indoor water park open year-round. Moody Garden has its’ aquarium, IMAX theater, and other fun family attractions. There are museums scattered throughout the island including a flight museum. The Pleasure Pier is an amusement park and restaurants over the Gulf of Mexico.
Come stay with us. You will want to come back for more fun and relaxation away from the everyday hustle of life.

Car: Necessary

The beach is only a short ride away! You can even use the bikes that we have available to ride for that purpose. The beach is great for sunning, shelling, swimming and shark-tooth hunting! We have beach chairs for you to use, as well. Riding around Jamaica beach on a bike (or just walking!) is a relaxing experience, with the bay right there next to you. Try getting out around sunset. It is a breath-taking view.

A children’s playground is only a couple blocks away. It was recently re-built from the storm, which means that all of the equipment is new.

Feel like eating out? About one mile away, in Jamaica Village is a restaurant called the Blue Water Grill that specializes in anything from salads to pizza. Forget something but don’t want to drive back into town? Don’t worry; there is a local grocery store down the main road called Seven Seas.

Other Activities: Shopping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, boating


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: We wanted a weekend get away from Houston and found our home. We came every Friday until Sunday and just could not get enough of the fishing, beach and the wonderful island life. So we decided to move permanently to Jamaica Beach and have not had any regrets.

Why Jamaica Beach:
We decided to rent our home so others could relax and have family vacations like we did .
