Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed 3 nights (were both seniors)enjoy every min of it. Every thing you need very friendly and quiet neighborhood. The only thing that’s needed is newer crab traps even though we did catch but one cab lol it was fun anyway. And I really enjoyed meeting the owner Judy she was so friendly and helpful. Thank you Judy

Enjoyed a peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Can only say nothing but good things.

The area: Jamaica Beach is peaceful, friendly and fun. Folks were friendly down at Seven Seas Grocery and at the gas station. Even drove back towards town and enjoyed a nice dinner at Landry's, where the folks there were nice too. Shopping at Murdocks was pretty cool and of course the beach was what we came for. Enjoyed it all. Judy was very helpful with information on where to find what you need so ask, or drive around and get to know the area like we did.

The Home: our stay was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We did bring some extra things just in case, like extra towels and more clothes than we needed because there is no washer/dryer although we found that there was a Laundromat just down the road. The fishing off the deck was fun in the mornings and on the breezy days. Didn't catch a whole lot but we were here for the peace and quiet, which there was plenty of. It was clean and well kept. I had a little bit of a hard time getting the gas grill to fire so we bought some matches and left them for the next group to use. We grilled quite a bit and sat on the swing alot and enjoyed some cool beverages.

Next Time: We will look at renting a golf cart to get a better look at the area in Jamaica Beach and probably look at renting a kayak or two to play around in the bay.

All in all an enjoyable and affordable stay. Thinking we need to seriously consider moving to this area, we just loved it that much. Hated leaving.

The only negative were the mosquito's in the evening. Nothing the owner can do about that, but I got eaten up pretty good the first night. Stock up on Deet!

Perfect for my little family.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Affordable! Everything we needed for our family vacation. We relaxed, cooked, fished and caught crabs with the crab traps provided. Drank coffee in the mornings on the comfy deck, and enjoyed a glass of wine in the evenings. Everything you need to cook a meal is provided (pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils)The pool in town is very nice also. Driving into Galveston was never a problem. I would recommend this home to my family and friends and would stay again if we come back.
