About the Property

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 9 to 11

Following an extensive renovation, Jamaica Beach's most-requested vacation home, 'Kachina Cay', is now back & even better than before!

Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Kachina Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'

'Kachina Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak from our dock right into the wildlife preserve at Galveston State Park (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the hammock, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard; & a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our slip or simply spend the afternoon playing horseshoes in the yard or grilling on the deck.

Above all else, 'Kachina Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!

(Please note... if 'Kachina Cay' is not available for the dates of your stay, our second home 'Tortuga Cay' is located just across the canal and features the same high standards and amenities, with a great location on the water. The rates are identical for both houses and you can view that listing at http://www.homeaway.com/p3871822)

Fishing Guide Service: Are you looking for some SERIOUS fishing during your stay? If so, our professional guide service is available to pick you up right at our pier for a full day or half day bay fishing excursion. Just walk right downstairs and hop on the boat... it doesn't get more convenient than that! Simply inquire when reserving your vacation and we'll take care of the rest!

Our amenities...: Following an extensive renovation, 'Kachina Cay' now features beautiful granite countertops, glass tile back-splashes, stainless appliances, two full decks overlooking the water and Galveston State Park and much, much more. With two decks & an expansive open floor plan, the home is designed to allow large groups to comfortably relax together.

Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck!

For parents traveling with small children... lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. We have a high chair and pack-n-play crib available for your use... please bring your own crib sheets. (A note from the owners... we have a 2-year old and a 3-year old of our own, and have designed this home with them in mind. We have taken great care to ensure our home allows your children to play safely AND allow parents to enjoy their vacation without constant worry.)

Amenities include: 46' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed wifi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic king mattresses, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, 2 single kayaks and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and a tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered hammock & swing, 8 person picnic table, beach chairs, boogie-boards, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!

Pets: Your pets are part of your family and are always welcome in our home with no additional pet deposit. The yard has been designed to give them room to play safely and away from the water.

Location

Car: Recommended

Our beautiful waterfront home is located on one of the largest canals in the area, with fast and easy access to the beach and Galveston Bay.

Click on the map link below & you'll see just how incredible our location is... with the beachfront just down the street and Galveston Bay access less than 50 yards from our deck, 'Kachina Cay' is the perfect location for families looking to get away, while still only 10 minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, & everything Galveston island has to offer.

Jamaica Beach is one of the safest and most family friendly communities on the island. Our quaint beachfront community offers 2 restaurants, a Subway sandwich shop, 2 gas stations, a neighborhood pub, and an amazing family-run grocery store.

Golf: Formerly the Galveston Municipal Golf Course, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features a $16 million comprehensive renovation by the renowned golf course architects of Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design. Revealed in June 2008, the Moody Gardens Golf Course features the best historical aspects of the original layout, while significantly improving certain holes and overall course flow. The course highlights its unique seaside tropical feel with 18 holes meandering through upland and lowland native areas, natural wetlands habitat of beautiful Sydnor Bayou and over 500 palm trees.

 

Owner info

About the owner: My wife, Wendy, and I love Galveston and all that it has to offer our family. We enjoy taking our two boys to the beach, fishing and kayaking at the house and riding our bikes around Jamaica Beach. Having young children, we are frequent visitors to Moody Gardens, the Galveston Children's Museum and on the dolphin watching tours at The Strand, but some of our best times are when we are simply grilling at the house while the boys play in the yard or feed the seagulls on the deck.
