About Kristen

Captain Jack's is named after 'Captain Jack', the youngest member of a 3-family brood. He is rough, tough, and loves hugs and his house. (He also loves, at age 3, to color on his face with a blue Sharpie marker.)

Kristen purchased this house in 2008

Why Kristen chose Jamaica Beach

We chose this property because it is perfect for a multi-family getaway and we wanted to be ON THE BEACH, with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The location of Jamaica Beach is perfect - close enough to Galveston to easily access the amenities of a city, but far enough to enjoy the tranquility of a family beach setting.

What makes this house unique

Captain Jack's offers an ideal place to congregate in open-concept living spaces, as well as the privacy of large, quiet, separate bedrooms.

A Dream Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family reunion was a huge success at Capt. Jack's! Waking up every morning to the beachfront view was picture perfect, and the house provided great family gathering areas for our crew. We had such a wonderful, relaxing time at the house, we barely left to go into town for the entire week. Also, the owners were were great to work with. When we weren't lounging on the beach, we were absorbing the atmosphere from the shady, breezy deck. The kitchen was well appointed, the bedrooms were clean and quiet, and the zoned air conditioning rocked - giving us welcome relief from the heat. I would highly recommend this property!!

We really enjoyed our stay. Great location, easy beach access. Plenty of room inside the house for the whole family with cold AC.

Another GREAT Stay at Captain Jack's

  • 5 of 5

This is about our 4 or 5 year to stay at Captain Jack's on Jamaica Beach. As you might have guessed by now, we love this place. We were not able to take our grandchildren this year, but did go with some friends and had just as much fun. Linda (the manager) is so easy to work with. She always responds with any questions we might have. Our friends now love this little piece of heaven as much as we do and are already talking about coming back next year. Thanks Kristen and, of course, Linda for making our stay so enjoyable.

Large Home Right on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home that worked well for our large group. Everything was as advertised and the home was clean and comfortable. Our family really enjoyed the decks and access to the beach steps away from the home. The owner was extremely responsive while we were staying at the property and the AC needed to be repaired. After the install of a totally new AC the home was cool and comfortable. I would definitely recommend.

Just Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first year at Captain Jack's and already looking forward to next year. Though a bit dated and needing a little TLC, the house is big, roomy, and very comfortable. Wonderful deck, both upper and lower, offered perfect views of the water. Easy access to the beach and liked that no cars are allowed on the beach during the weekend since we had active little ones in our group. Golf carts were still plentiful so caution was still a must. I would highly recommend Captain Jack's; we've been renting beach houses for our annual family vacations for many years and everyone in our group gave this vacation a 'best ever' rating!

Wonderful Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

House was sooo roomy. This is the third home I've rented in Galveston, and by far the roomiest. We had 18 people at one point (aged 64 to 4), and everyone had a comfy spot to sleep. The kids room worked great to give the kids a place to hang out and watch tv/play games.

The beach was amazing and right out the door, and there were plenty of sand toys for the kiddos. The beach was a bit more populated than other spots we've rented, but not so bad we couldn't get our own space.

The deck was perfect. We spent a LOT of time out there enjoying life and conversation.

We really enjoyed this house..the kitchen had everything we needed. Some of the necessity items (paper towels, etc) had been left by previous guests, and we left a few things as well! We did have some issues locating all of the sheets and towels for the extra rooms, but we figured it out in the end.

Communication with the owner was easy, and we were fully informed about what we needed to know prior to arriving.

Definitely recommend this property!!!
