Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: 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!

Why Jamaica Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
