Jamaica Beach house description

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!


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.

Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. 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!

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 memory foam mattress-toppers, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, a single and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and a new 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!

NEW! We now have Google Chromecast at 'Kachina Cay', allowing you to stream Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, HBO Go, and more directly from your phone or tablet to the TV!

Pets: Your pets are part of your family and are always welcome in our home with no additional pet deposit. The yard has been designed to give them room to play safely and away from the water.

                  Our beautiful waterfront home is located on one of the largest canals in the area, with fast and easy access to the beach and Galveston Bay.

                  Click on the map link below & you'll see just how incredible our location is... with the beachfront just down the street and Galveston Bay access less than 50 yards from our deck, 'Kachina Cay' is the perfect location for families looking to get away, while still only 10 minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, & everything Galveston island has to offer.

                  Jamaica Beach is one of the safest and most family friendly communities on the island. Our quaint beachfront community offers 2 restaurants, a Subway sandwich shop, 2 gas stations, a neighborhood pub, and an amazing family-run grocery store.

                  Golf: Formerly the Galveston Municipal Golf Course, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features a $16 million comprehensive renovation by the renowned golf course architects of Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design. Revealed in June 2008, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features the best historical aspects of the original layout, while significantly improving certain holes and overall course flow. The course highlights its unique seaside tropical feel with 18 holes meandering through upland and lowland native areas, natural wetlands habitat of beautiful Sydnor Bayou and over 500 palm trees.
