About Julie Bernell
We come from a large family and wanted a special place that we would feel like there are no worries in the world. We remolded the whole house when the kids were young, especially the master shower which could hold 4-5 kids at one time to shower. The Jaccuzzi tub was for the adults. Every year we tried to add something extra to the house to continue to improve the property. We have used the property for family reunions, our family get away and even for romantic anniversaries. The house lends itself to any occasion.
Julie Bernell purchased this House in 2004
Why Julie Bernell chose Jamaica Beach
We wanted a vacation home that the kids would beg to go to! Creating family memories to be passed down through the generations was our driving force to purchasing this beautiful property. The fact that the Jamaican Beach police patrol the beach often and there is no traffic allowed in front of our house on the weekends were an added plus. We feel very safe here with our family.
What makes this House unique
We love to play on the beach all day! Our children are avid crab catchers! We host many family functions at our beach home. The house is wonderfully located with a grocery store, liquor store, and a pizza place within a mile. What more could you ask for at the beach!

Loved the views
Great location- ocean, beach, close to anything you may need. Clean!
The owners were great- Easy to communicate with. I have stayed at many beach houses and this o
I have stayed at many beachFRONT rental houses and this one is my FAVORITE! The view is AMAZING . We could watch our kids playing on the beach while sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch!! The house was Beautiful! And very clean. We cooked every night in a well stocked kitchen. Ok I know this is strange but I loved the master bath- it has a huge walk in shower and was very pretty. The beds were comfortable as well!! We will be back!!
Great location - perfect family gathering house!
We celebrated Christmas at this lovely location - our grown children, two toddlers, and two newborns. We could not have asked for a better location, right on the beach and right down the road from excellent restaurants and entertainment. Our every need was met, especially waking up to a beach sunrise visible from your bed. Huge windows with unobstructed beach before you - perfect! Hoping to return next year!
Summer Solstice Family Beach Bash 2015
We keep returning to the Blue Marlin because it is perfect and the owner makes improvements each year and is so nice and easy to work with. 2015 saw all new appliances! My hubby and I rent for two weeks and family comes as they can to visit. My daughter, son in law and grandkids stay almost a week (they do ALL the cooking and meal planning and let me have a relaxing time). My hubby is a disabled Vietnam Veteran and spends his waking hours on the shady covered porch - I spend morning and late afternoon combing the beach as well as low and high tides) and heat of the day watching 'crispy critters' (the folks that play ALL day at waters edge, we can see them getting sunburned) ~ AMAZING sunrise views and if you rent a golf cart there is awesome sunset view from the bay side of the subdivision. The area is patrolled very well by the Jamaica Beach Police and they keep it safe. I think this will be our 5th year of our family beach bash. All we bring is our clothes, beach towels and non perishable food (we buy the perishables at nearby Seven Seas Grocery store, next to Nate's which is a great place to eat)~ kitchen is fully stocked (just bring food) ~ a few days we go into Galveston, there is so much to do for excitement, but mostly we porch sit. Looking so forward to 2016 ~ book this house for a perfect beachfront covered porch, tell them my review convinced you. I have stayed many places on the island for many years, this is my number one choice! But the last two weeks of June are mine 😎
We stayed for 7 days, and had 2 families, 8 kids & 4 adults. The house was big and roomie and the beach is one of the best ones we've stayed at. They kept it clean and there was always a police patrol on it everyday. There are limited towels at the house and no beach towels, also there were not any deck furniture and that was a first. All the other places we've stayed had table and chairs to enjoy an outdoor eating or gathering place. It had all new aplliances which was awesome! Also there was not a grill at the house to cook on, so we had to get an inexpensive one at the store.
Ocean front fun
We absolutely loved our week at this beach house. The owner had everything ready and was quick to respond and easy to work with. The house layout was perfect for the 8 of us who ranged from 4 months to 72. The porch looks right out on the ocean and the path to the beach just a few steps through the sand dunes. The state park is very close for nature lovers. We also were surprised by how much we would enjoy the town of Galveston 15 minutes away. What an interesting and historic town. What a fun place for a family vacation!
