About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeper sofas, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

This beautiful Beach house remodeled as of January 2016, come down for Mardi Gras or a family getaway. It’s conveniently located, 1 block from the beach, and a 70 Feet walk to Spa, Gym, Liquor Store, Bar, and Valero. House is well equipped with all amenities of home. Enjoy the beach view while you relax, listening to the sounds of the ocean. Have fun visiting Galveston’s attractions: Schliterban, Moody Gardens (Aquarium) for the kids or walk along the historic Strand and browse in the gift shops or indulge in the fine restaurants.

House has a great open floor plan with a retro look and a laid back vibe! The Property consists of a five bedroom and two and a half bath house (3 Bedroom/2 Bath upstairs and 2 Bedroom & 1/2 Bath Downstairs). The downstairs adds an additional 600 sq-ft (I do not rent this out to other people at the same time). The downstairs has a bedroom with a queen bed and a game room (pool table) that doubles as a bedroom which includes a sleeper sofa and a mini fridge. Upstairs sleeps 12 and downstairs sleeps 4. Check in 3:30 pm & Check out 11am. The blue chair in the downstairs bedroom converts into a pull out bed for a child (just like a pull out sofa). House has: an outdoor shower, washer and dryer, games, toys, books for kids, dishwasher, toaster, and blender for those mixed drinks. We offer clean quality linens and comforters, Cable TV in every room. 1 DVD Player. Free wireless on site. Large wrap around deck for lounging. I also own the vacant lot next door for extra land for kids to run around. This property is 150 yards from the beach and does have an awesome beach view.

Thank you and enjoy your stay!!

About Donald

Meredith and I welcome you to our beach house! We met back packing in Switzerland and fell in love with each other and moved to the Heights in Houston. We then found our cozy beach town Jamaica Beach and bought and fell in love with the house. Have FUN!!

Donald purchased this house in 2009

Why Donald chose Jamaica Beach

Jamaica Beach is a premier location for vacations and to get away, yet close enough to Galveston.

What makes this house unique

Bring your friendly and well behaved pets!! However we do charge a small daily fee.

Grate place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, would definitely stay again. The deck was big enough where we could lounge outside. Place had nice sheets and comforters. If you want to fish and hang out it’s a good place to go theres a big bait shop ¾ mile down the road. The owners sent us a travel list of stuff to bring, it helped us out. Place is spacious, I’ll be back next year.

Awesome spacious beach house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very easy to find It was everything that was listed clean, spacious,comfy, close to the beach. Everything worked air-conditioniner was nice and cool the wrap around deck was awesome we had a great view to the beach. The deck underneath gave us a nice cool shady area when the sun was to hot. The downstairs area also had bedrooms and a bathroom which was a plus so we didn't have to run up and down the stairs. The neighbors were friendly and the property had lots of space so we were not in anyone's way there was a liquor store, bar as well as golf cart rental just in case you wanted to cruise on the beach there are so my great features.I can say about this property. The owner responded promptly if I had any questions

Sofa beds unusable, leaky DW, bum dryer, Master br (no bath), rail of balcony loose. Small for #s.

  • 2 of 5

Manager is very responsive, house was clean, but mattresses are mediocre to awful. Good for young on beer weekend bc it is on beach side. Smaller than we anticipated, so very tight for big group.

Owner's Response: I hate to hear you did not enjoy the place. I have fixed the leaky dishwasher, tightened the balcony and put a brand new sofa bed in. The appliance guy said the dryer works fine just takes a little time if you overload it. I would like to point out that immediately before and after this review there are 5 star reviews and out of 59 reviews this is the first 2 star, also the beach house is 1800 sqft house as is stated in the description. Other reviews they state the house is spacious. I truly listen to my reviews and make the appropriate corrections. Thanks and hope to see you on the beach!

Fun, cozy home in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over a long June weekend in this cozy home. It has plenty of beds and fold-out couches to accommodate large groups. Downstairs with pool table and outdoor shower is a plus. It is two rows back from the beach but we were able to set up a tarp and chairs on the beach each day to have line of sight back to the house. Convenient location for groceries (Seven Seas, Hummels), restaurants (Blue Water Grill) and fitness (West End Gym). Don, the owner, is very pleasant to deal with. If you are looking for a cozy beach home that is simple, affordable, not too fancy and conveniently located then I would recommend it.
