Property description

Holiday Party's

Want to host that perfect holiday party - having a big family get together to celebrate New Years, my home on the canal is just what you are looking for.

Contractor's Welcome

Daily, weekly and monthly leasing for out of town contractors available, contact me for info and rates.

This canal home is perfect for those wanting to get away for some R&R.

The three different level decks allow you everything from easy water access on the lower deck for fishing, swimming and boating; to sunbathing or having a sunset dinner on the middle deck, and for the romantics, a secluded evening with your favorite bottle of wine, enjoying the fantastic bay view from the Master Bedroom Deck.

Located 20 minutes from 'The Strand', upscale dinning, dancing, and/or partying is always available. The infamous Rain Forest Cafe, Moody Gardens, and Schlitterbahn Waterpark, are perfect outings for the whole family.

Fun can be had by would have to try not to have fun during your stay...and I'm not sure that's even possible!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife Cathy and I met in Galveston 28 years ago. We both love the beach, sun, water, and just being in the coastal surroundings. Immediately after getting married in 1985 we purchased our second home in Jamaica Beach (Galveston). As other properties came available, we purchased them in hopes that someday our five kids would all want to have a 2nd house on the island. We built this house in 2004 and designed it to meet the needs of people who come to the beach to relax and have fun. There is no doubt that being able to get away to Galveston whenever we can has strengthen our marriage, because it automatically puts you in a festive mood when you arrive on the island. The best memories of our lives have been here in Galveston.

Why the Owner Chose Jamaica Beach:
The West End of Galveston is the place to own a vacation home. Most of the homes on the West End are second homes. It's isolated from all the traffic, crowds, restaurants, and all the other tourist attractions that people enjoy when they visit Galveston, yet your only 15 minutes away. The West End has a festive atmosphere and everyone is friendly. By 4:00 PM the BBQ pits start getting lit, and the margaritas and cold beer start flowing. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck drinking a good margarita and eating fajitas while you watch the beautiful sunset over the Bay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With the house being on the canal, you can get up in the morning and fish off the deck while you enjoy the beautiful sunrise. During the day you can go to the beach and surf, swim, ride jet skis, fish, or just lay out and freshen your tan. If you want to stay at the house, you may just want to make you a good tropical drink and float in the the canal. Or for those days when it's a little to cool to get in the water, you can always lay around on the couch and read a good book. The bottom line, relaxation is the rule for every day in Jamaica Beach.
