Car: Recommended

Galveston is a short drive east from Jamaica Beach and offers amusement parks, water parks, Moody Gardens, golf, historical homes, and many restaraunt choices. There is also a shopping center at the corner of Hwy 3005 and Buccaneer. It has a convenience store, bar, and restaurant. There is also a small art gallery behind the convenience store.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our family has lived in Texas since 1986, and in the Houston area since 1992. We were constantly drawn to Galveston, as if the ocean was calling us home. One day when our work is done, we will retire there to live out our days in the wonderful life of sand, sea, and surf.

Why the Owner Chose Jamaica Beach:
Our family loves the beach and you can be sure whenever you're not renting our bay house, we will be there. I'm not sure what we love more: swimming in the ocean, surf fishing in the mornings, watching sunsets from the back porch, or taking moonlit walks on the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is located in a wonderful little neighborhood about 10 minutes west of Galveston. It has its own police and fire station. A red light at the front of the neighborhood provides easy passage across to the beach.
