Wonderful Canal house! Boat lift available! Make family memories!

Our home is located on the West End of Galveston in the wonderful Village of Jamaica Beach- the perfect place to find peace on the bay and beach. Perfect for family vacations. Grab a fishing pole and enjoy fishing off the dock. Enjoy a beverage on the deck while taking in the beautful water views. Spend the day kayaking down the canals or taking a ride to the neighborhood park on one of the provided bikes. You can also stay home and relax while in the hammock. So many extras includes.

The deck downstairs includes a boat lift. 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. You are also close enough to town to enjoy the many sights and sounds that Galveston has to offer! PromParties are not allowed.

The welcoming home has been recently updated. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms each have a queen sized bed with a television with one of the bedrooms also has a trundle bed. This allows 8 people to sleep comfortably. Linens for the beds are provided, along with towels for the bathrooms at no extra charge. There is a full size 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! 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, fire department and EMS gives you peace of mind, with the police 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 be glad you did. You will want to come back for more fun and relaxation away from the everyday hustle of life.

About Kathy Waite

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.

Kathy Waite purchased this House in 2003

Why Kathy Waite chose Jamaica Beach

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

There is a picnic table downstairs and a table with an umbrella on the upstairs deck. You can eat outside and enjoy the sunrise, sunset or afternoon in comfort. The house boasts three different decks, each with their own unique view onto the horizons. We also have a hammock that can be put up for relaxing or reading outside. We have two kayaks to use for journeys in the canal via paddle. There is an estuary not far from the house, where you can view the different birds and fish native to this area. 4 bikes. 2 crab traps are available to catch crabs and cook them for dinner

                                                                      Property is beautiful, it's right on the canal with dock access. Extremely convenient for us having a boat. It's awesome that Nancy allows pets it made for a great vacation for us to be able to have our pets with us. Fully loaded kitchen and linens. It's a very well kept and clean home. Nancy also had plenty of water toys available for our use, which was pretty cool! Overall great stay would definitely come again! Thank you!

                                                                      This place met all of our expectations. The home comes as advertised and fit our family comfortably. We stayed nine nights and would have loved to vacation longer. The area and neighbors were nice too making our stay more comfortable.

                                                                      Thanks for a great vacation.

                                                                      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
