Our home is located on the West End of Galveston in Jamaica Beach, 11 miles from 61st street in Galveston.

The house has three bedrooms and three full baths. Two bed rooms have queen beds and third has bunk beds with double on bottom, twin on top and a pull out twin trundle bed, plus a small TV and VCR for kids to watch movies. Linens and towels are provided. Washer and dryer are located downstairs. Flat screen HD television in the living room with DVD player. We also offer a selection of board games, puzzles and a backgammon game. Kitchen is stocked with dishes, silverware, pots and pans, Mr. Coffee maker and Keurig K Cup. Wireless high speed internet.

Downstairs there are swings and a hammock for you to kick back on and enjoy the breeze that blows under the house. Upstairs there is plenty of shade for you to enjoy dinner on the deck if you like.

The fishing at night off the new large dock is very good as the spot lights attract bait fish which attract bigger fish for you to catch. Trout and redfish are usually feeding nightly. You need to bring your own rod and reel for fishing. Crab traps are available for your use . Boat lift available for boats 22' and under.

Jamaica Beach playground and beach are a short ride or walk for you to enjoy.

Come and enjoy our Bayside Hideaway and have NO WORRIES while you’re here.

My home is for family vacations not party central.

A great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Bayside Hideway provided everything that we expected and needed for a relaxing Jamaica Beach vacation. The house was well maintained and immaculately cleaned. The furnishing were comfortable and the house was equipped with everything needed for cooking and recreation. All appliances were in good shape and easy to use. The owner has placed all household manuals in a kitchen cabinet for easy reference. There were plenty of spare towels and the kitchen was equipped with an extensive assortment of appliances and cooking utensils. The kitchen was well laid out and the living room spacious and comfortable. The deck was large and encircles the house.

As nice as the living area is the lower (ground) level sets the place apart from other rentals. This area is extremely large and well laid out. The owner has provided three outdoor cookers, (charcoal, gas , and smoker). There is ample seating to handle a large family gathering. The boat slip and the dock are very well designed and there is ample room for crabbing and fishing off the wide dock outboard of the boat slip. The boat lift is easy to use. There is a convenient cleaning table, hose and outdoor shower near the dock. A paddle boat kept the grandkids occupied. There is an extensive number of personal flotation devices provided, along with several bicycles for touring the area.

During our stay we had the opportunity to visit several other houses rented by extended family members and the Bayside Hideaway stood head and shoulders above those other places. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to renting it again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Bayside Hideaway. Great size, inside and out. We all loved being in a cove right off the open bay. Well appointed kitchen and baths. Owner was helpful and attentive. Thanks for a fun week, we will be back!

Owner's Response: Athena, I'm glad you had a great time at the Bayside Hideaway house and we would love to have you back for another stay. Not sure why you only gave me 4 stars on the review and not 5 stars...

Soo relaxing. A perfect place to take your family. Huge deck where you can relax and get some sun. Equally large area underneath with tables and chairs, and a hammock, to chat as you cook on the grill provided. Inside is a large living area with kitchen and bar for guests to eat. Cozy breakfast table also if that is your preference. Plenty of windows to look out on the water. We are finding our biggest problem is that a week just isn't long enough! Simply wonderful!!!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Brent for allowing us to stay this weekend on such short notice (2wks)! We had a wonderful time! Your house was beautiful and had everything we needed. My grandmother said this was absolutely the best birthday she's had an 85 years! She really enjoyed sitting out on the deck and watching my brothers give her great and great-great grandbabies rides on the paddleboat. It reminded her of when she had her beach camp in Crystal Beach in the 80's when my brothers and I were a growing up. We will definitely recommend your place to anyone and everyone we know who is looking for a place to stay! Both you and your home deserve more than five stars! Thank you again!
