About Melissa and Toby Mejia

I am a teacher who grew up on the beach in New York. It was my dream to be able to give my 2 boys the same wonderful memories I had growing up with my family spending time playing and having fun at the beach.

That dream came true in 2010. Our beach house is our favorite place to be and we would love nothing more than knowing others are making their own memories at our house.

Melissa and Toby Mejia purchased this house in 2010

Why Melissa and Toby Mejia chose Galveston

We chose Jamaica Beach because of the wonderful sense of community, accessibility to the beach and the bay and the amenities the neighborhood has to offer! A neighborhood park with a playground and basketball courts, a fire department and a police station, plus shops and restaurants.

Great beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time renting this beach house and it was absolutely stellar!

We had a family of 13 people. The house is spacious and close to the beach. The house was fully equipped with everything that you'll need.

Melissa provided clear house instructions on arrival and departure. Everything is easy to access with her instructions. I would recommend staying at her location if you are looking to have a great time with family and friends!

There was some dings on the house due to the age and location but just make sure you take before and after pictures to cover yourself. Other than they everything was perfect. AC blows Cold! Pets are also allowed with a deposit fee!

Lots of room for the price

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were satisfied with the rental. It was very spacious and we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Just a few minor things need to be addressed:

1. When we arrived, several of the light bulbs in the house were burnt out. We had to make a run to Wal-Mart to purchase more.

2. The Wii console was missing. The unit had all of the other Wii "stuff" (controllers, Rock Band attachments, controller extensions, games, etc.) but the actual console wasn't there. Very strange.

3. The dryer's timer function didn't work. I put in a load of towels to dry before going to bed and when I woke up the load was still drying. I set the timer for 30 minutes but the dial never moved and the towels were still going the next morning. I'm surprised it didn't start a fire they were so hot. For our next loads, I tried other knob settings but they didn't work either. So I kept the time on my phone and would go down and check every 20 minutes.

But we liked the house and the location. It was easy to get to the beach and the rooms were clean. Plenty of towels and sheets. If we come to Galveston again and need a rental to sleep more than 5 people, we will rent this one again.

Great Location to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We had 7 adults and 4 kids, perfect amount of room for us all and still had beds available.

Everything we needed was there and ready for us. It was clean and very easy access to the beach. We all enjoyed our stay and highly recommend using this home. We definitely will on future trips.

The house is great! We went there for a spiritual retreat with 15 ladies, and have a wonderful time. Everything is clean and well maintained. And the beach is 2 minutes away!

Great Place. Small Issues need to be address.

  • 3 of 5

Not sure where to start. Must say first, great location. Road traffic a little busy. On main subdivision road. Weekend was very heavy. Inside cabin was nice. Everyone had plenty of space. A little disappointed that most light/fan remotes didnt work or were dead batterries. Pans needed a scrubbing before use. Lighting in bedrooms was very dim. Burned out lamps. Two fans didnt work. Lots of room for everyone. Very few channels worked on tv. Kids watched movies so that worked out. Porch furniture need repairs/replace. Screens were not available on porch. Couldnt leave dogs outside due to the mosquitoes beening so bad. Barbq pits were not usable. No bottoms to them. Used the lil smokey. Not efficient for 14 people. Picnic table was broken due to rust. Owners should be made aware of these small issues so they can resolve them.
