About Lara Coursey
I grew up in the area and always loved spending time in Galveston as a quick getaway with my family and friends. My dad worked as an entertainer in Galveston and surrounding areas his entire life and his logo was 'Almost Famous' One Man Band. So I passed on the name to my new vacation house!
Lara Coursey purchased this House in 2012
Why Lara Coursey chose Jamaica Beach
There are so many attractions and things to do without the big city feel. Galveston is laid back and fun for all ages and groups. I recently bought and remodeled this quaint little house so things are fresh, new and comfortable. Me and my dog, Honey, love spending time here!
What makes this House unique
When I was looking for a vacation home, I wanted to be in Jamaica Beach where it's quiet, safe and close to everything you need. This neighborhood is very friendly and clean and so is the beach. The front deck looks over the green grass and the breezes are so relaxing. With the conservatory down the street, it's a great place to watch the wildlife, relax and take in the views!

Absolutely loved this place!!!
Very accommodating, perfect location to the beach! The owner was awesome! Will definitely recommend this place to everyone we know.
It was AWESOME
We had 5 adults 1 child and our small 3lb dog and it was perfect size for us. It fit everyone comfortably, the beds were very comfortable and it was nice and cold in the house! Loved having the patio to sit on at night and having a table outside and inside to accommodate everyone. We had a great stay and loved how it was only a few minutes to the beach. It was a quiet area, the beach was nice and not overcrowded and the locals were all so nice! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other people
Not a good fit
Unfortunately, the place was too small (the two bedrooms could barely fit full beds in them) and had an overwhelming smell of dog urine throughout the house. Lara was very helpful but we cut our stay short due to the conditions.
I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I had everything removed and professionally cleaned as cleanliness is my top priority. Per the rental agreement you're supposed to notify me of issues upon check in not after check out. I would have made sure to have everything replaced asap. The rooms are described with a full size bed, end table, luggage rack and a bar for hang up clothes. I'm sorry my rental did not meet your needs.
Cute little house
First time to the area. Had a wonderful time. There were 5 kids and 4 adults. Tight on space but we made it work. Tropical storm Cindy made it even more interesting. Thank you Lara for checking in with us during our stay.
Great place and location
We enjoyed being able to bring our dogs and have a quieter area of the beach close by. The house was great for us!
Cute house for two small families
The house was small and cute. The beds were comfortable. Two full size beds so just enough room for two adults. The living room fold out and sofa were both actually pretty comfortable. The air conditioners worked insanely well. At times I was almost freezing and just turned them off. Drive way very small- would not fit two large pickups well but fit two small cars. Full sized fridge and small stove but big enough for vacation cooking. nice large family dining table and plenty of extra towels included. 5 minute drive to beach access in nice quiet community. Overall good stay.
Schlitterbauhn (open year round), Moody Gardens, the Strand and the brand new Pleasure Pier are all just a few minutes away! Golf cart rentals are available to ride around town and see the sites. The public boat ramp is around the corner, and the conservatory is close to sit, relax and watch the wildlife.
