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.

Awesome Bayside Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

You will never meet a more personable owner than Brent. He met us and gave us a tour of his home. He was available if there were any problems which we had no problems. The open concept of the kitchen and living room are well furnished. Bedrooms were roomy and comfortable, nice size bathrooms. Water views from the deck were amazing. The down stairs outdoor living area is fabulous with hammock, grill, chairs, boat slip, etc. My boys enjoyed going out on the kayak and paddle boat fishing. We used the crab traps and in a few days had more than enough crabs to cook plus one flounder that somehow made its way into one of the traps. First time for us to do a crab boil and bake flounder which came out delish. Perfect location and nice neighbors. We rented a golf cart to go back and forth to the beach so we never got sand in our vehicle and so much fun running around Jamaica Beach, was worth every penny. Brent has a ring game downstairs that is very addicting! We would definitely come back and stay at the Bayside Hideway again.

Great home for fishing!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained home with lots of space indoors and out. We used the home for kayak fishing in the bay and the State Park next door. Great layout and amenities for a comfortable weekend.

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with two other couples, just enjoyed a great holiday weekend at Bayside Hideaway. Brent was the perfect host and could not have been anymore accommodating and helpful. We were concerned about getting there since our reservation was just a few days after Hurricane Harvey, but Brent assured us all was well after he made a trip to the rental prior to our arrival. He met us there and gave us a quick tour and instructions. He was also quick to respond to a text message I had after our arrival. We really enjoyed the paddle boat and fishing, even though we didn't catch much. The outdoor space is amazing! Plenty of seating and room for everyone. I highly recommend this location.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place to relax and go fishing.... we got both!! On the first morning my son caught five fish and more as the week went on!! The house was perfect with the open concept and the large deck upstairs plus the downstair area was the best for hanging out at night for nighttime fishing. Super relaxing... no one wanted to leave. Thank you Brent for everything!

Bayside Hideaway

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!
