About Jackie Bevil

There is nothing more relaxing than being on the water. whether you are on the beach or just enjoying the water views from your house. We lost the living room/kitchen and bath part of our house when Ike hit Galveston, we have just finished building a new front to our house.

Jackie Bevil purchased this house in 1996

Why Jackie Bevil chose Jamaica Beach

We used to own a condo in Galveston. My husband wanted a true beach front house. We chose Jamaica Beach because it is a family beach and we are right on the water.

What makes this house unique

Our house is set up so multiple families can come and enjoy themselves without feeling crowded. Our bedrooms are large and separate. Children can sleep in the back of the house while grown ups enjoy the front, or older kids can enjoy the front while grown ups sleep in back. We have within a mile nice restaurants , along with hardware store, laundry mat, grocery store, liquor store, pizza, subway ,gas stations and churches. There is also a new community swimming pool across the street at Jamaica Beach.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and 7 kids and it housed us all comfortably and a quick walk to the beach. Beach area was perfect for our young kiddos. Owner was very quick to respond with any questions we had. Perfect for a great, laid back vacation.

Beachfront and spaciousness make this cabin a perfect rental.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and spacious living area. Bedrooms private. Plenty of bathroom facilities. Beachfront deck is highlight. Spacious kitchen area. Plenty of TVs. Spacious downstairs area to park cars, grill, and hang out.

A few suggestions ...

Small grill downstairs is pretty worn out.

Plenty of lounge chairs on deck but a few are broken and could be discarded.

Kitchen cabinets and drawers are a little cluttered probably from accumulation of stuff over the years. Dishware, pots and pans, pyrex etc. could be simplified and organized better to make a great kitchen. There was a perfect large capacity gumbo pot. Linens, comforters, pillows all great.

Had a wonderful 4-night stay in September 2017.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed our beach house. We really enjoy our location. Thank you for your suggestions. It seems like the deck chairs are always needing repair or replacement. It really is a challenge to keep the kitchen organized. I try to stock the kitchen for large groups and small groups. Whenever I am there I have to totally redo the kitchen. Everybody who rents puts the dishes in a different place, and do not keep it organized. I look forward to having you come again for your next family reunion.

Great location and layout

  • 5 of 5

The house is the on first row off the beach and comes with everything you need. Each room had a big bed plus a set of bunks, so the sleeping situation was easy and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house. We enjoy sitting on the front deck and watching people on the beach. We try to stock the kitchen so our renters have everything they need. Hope to have you back again soon.

galveston rental

  • 3 of 5

Nice view of the gulf. The top floor is a wonderful open floor plan with ample seating for many at several tables in the eating area, and couches and chairs in the living area. It was a nice area to kick back and relax, or play cards or other games at the table. Well stocked kitchen, decent appliances. Bedrooms are on the lower level. They were quite 'well used' and need maintenance, updating, and thorough cleaning. Beach allowed cars, which provided people watching opportunities, but may not be suitable for families with young children. Homeowner was very responsive.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your input. As I had stated in the welcome letter we were trying a new cleaning service, obviously they do not do a good job, so I will be finding another cleaning service. In regards to cars being parked on the beach in front of the house, it has not ever been an issue as our crossover on the right is on the part of the beach where cars are not allowed. We try very hard to keep the bedspreads cleaned or replaced as renters tend to get suntan lotion and oil on them. Sometimes they are ruined by finger nail polish. Thank goodness our sheets and towels are kept in like new condition. I really appreciate your input and look forward to having you again.

Sunrise & View Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We loved being right on the beach. The living area was wonderful, comfortable, and spacious with veiws on three sides. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking for a large group. Our family includes all ages from 2 up, and it worked for all of us. The large screen TVs were great, one in the living room, one in the master bedroom. The other bedrooms had TVs too, so no need to argue over what to watch:) The deck was great for sunbathing, watching the activity on the beach or the beautiful sunrises or sunsets. The space under the house was nice with picnic tables, shower, and room to park cars in the shade. There were a few minor repairs that need to be addressed. The owners easy to work with and available. Our entire family really enjoyed our stay. We love Galveston and especially Jamaica Beach.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed our home. Thank you so much for the list of minor repairs that need to be addressed. Most renters don't tell us when things happen and repairs need to be made. When the house is rented through out the entire summer it is hard to get in a fix things, especially if you are not aware of them. I will try to get someone in this Friday between renters to address the list you gave me. Hope you come back to Jamaica Beach again next summer and choose Bahama Breeze as your rental home. Jackie
