Canal Hideaway in Jamaica Beach, Newly Renovated GREAT AUGUST DISCOUNT

Sleeps8
Bedrooms 3
Bathrooms2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights

Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 8, wifi, kayaks, bicycles, underwater light

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. Our home is perfect for family vacations, PROM PARTIES ARE NOT ALLOWED. It is close enough to town to enjoy the many sights and sounds that Galveston has to offer!

The house has been totally renovated this spring. Included in the renovations are new beds, new sofas, new carpeting and a fresh paint job. 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!

Since this is a canal home, we have a deck downstairs with a boat dock. 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.

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 want to come back for more fun and relaxation away from the everyday hustle of life.

About Nancy

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.

Nancy purchased this house in 2003

Why Nancy chose Galveston

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

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and had a very enjoyable 4th of July. First time to Jamaica Beach and it was a great location. Close to beach and just a short drive to Galveston but also less crowded. House was very clean and comfortable. Our dogs had a blast at the beach and I love that they allowed pets. Our dogs stayed in their crates when we left and at night and there was plenty of room for 2 large crates. Hope to visit again!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2017.

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.

Very comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. Had an issue with the WIFI and the owner came to the house to try to fix it. It was an issue with Comcast so not the owners fault. We were not at the house much so it was not a problem.

Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Comcast came Monday morning and fixed the problem. I have sent back some of your rent money to try and compensate for the problem. I know how dependent we have all become on having dependable internet service. I am so glad everything else went well. Nancy

So Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house! We were all so comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kids had so much fun with the kayaks, and the boys spent lots of time fishing in the canal. There was everything we needed!

Was Exactly As Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We must say that we thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

First of all, we were impressed with the cleanliness and overall property lay out, as well as the amenities provided. The kids had a blast riding the bikes and utilizing the traps for crabbing. As a matter of fact, we caught nine!

Second, in all our rental experiences, we have not run across a more accurate billing until now. Nancy's property was exactly as advertised. Thanks so much for making our spring break a huge success!

We'll be back!!!

Map

Car: necessary

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
