Cozy, convenient, stellar owner!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place within walking distance to the beach, a VERY considerate property owner, and affordable stay...this is your ticket! Jamie texted me weeks before and helped me decide where to eat, fish, and find local snacks. My daughters 18th birthday was our day of arrival and Jamie had her a sweet gift sitting on the table. I’m confident if we needed anything whatsoever Jamie would have made it happen. We loved Kwik Kabana.

Jamie is the perfect hostess! She is so pleasant and thoughtful! We very much appreciated her hospitality that extended even after we had checked out.

We were very pleased with our stay. Very clean and up to date. The owner is wonderful with lots of helpful information and is willing to help out in any way. U can walk to the beach from the house and pizza and other places are within walking distance. We will definitely stay again.

Kwik Kabana Klenches Krown!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little apartment with almost all the conveniences of home and maybe only 200 meters from the Gulf of Mexico. Jamie's little gem is clean, well-decorated, and stocked to please with micro, mini fridge, cable TV & wifi. Jamie is a charming hostess attentive to every need. She is a Galveston native and so knows where all the deals are, where all the bones are buried, and is full of suggestions about ways to save money and have a great time. BTW, Jamie is also a professional stylist and her Kwik Klips studio is right there, so don't pay an arm and a leg for a pre-vacation "Kwaff" when Jamie can do it on site. We have NO--as in ZERO--complaints, but only one suggestion: we feel the microwave, coffee maker, and utensils should find their way to the living room, maybe on a table behind "the man chair" When we are lucky enough to come back to Galveston we will definitely give Kwik Kabana repeat business.

Owner's Response: What an awesome review...,loved the “K” spellings too. As for my set-up... I purposely placed the items in their location in case there are children sleeping there. I don’t feel they should have access to electrical items. I knew it was safe to get something from the fridge. I took into consideration that in a hotel everything is in the same area one sleeps so my addition of the wall between was for privacy if someone wanted to sleep in and the other wanted to stay up in the sitting area. Thank you again for your kind words.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I felt really blessed that we found Jamie's Kwik Kabana. Jamie helped us from the time I made the reservation until the time we left her house. We stayed here the night before our cruise and Jamie was so accomodating with helping us get to the cruise the next day as well as picking us up when we returned. She has so much information about the island and it was a joy talking to her. She even allowed us to text her for information while we were out and about, giving us recommedation for restaurants and directions on when we thought we were lost. She was doing all this while she was having a dinner party at her house. She never failed to help us no matter what. She even gave us a little personal tour on the way to board our cruise ship and then gave us some great tips as she let us off.

I would recommend staying here and enjoying her hospitality and the location of the house being right across the road from the beach.

Thanks Jamie!

Great price for a sweet little place right near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Jamie is quite the hostess!! Her little Kabana was just big enough for one night to play on the beach for our family of four. She left a wonderful gift for our son's 9th birthday that we all enjoyed. Jamie was a wealth of information about the island and especially close-by amenities and places of interest to us.

The Kabana is very clean and lovely. It is just a hop over from the seawall and located walking distance from many points of interest.
