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 Galveston

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.

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

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This property is right on the beach. We had children and grand children staying with us. The upstairs is the open concept living, dining, and kitchen area and has one bathroom. There are bar stools and tables and chairs and nice furniture to handle a large group comfortably. The bedrooms, two of which have bathrooms, are downstairs. The separation is good for the teenagers that tended to sleep til noon. The outside deck was nice and comfortable for getting sun and watching whoever was on the beach or in the water. Plenty of nice flat screen tv's. The open area under the home had concrete and was a good place to clean up. The home next door did not have concrete underneath the house. The shower down below was great for cleaning off saltwater and sand.

I would probably give this property a 4 1/2 instead of five but there isn't a 4 1/2 option. There were a few minor maintenance issues. A couple of bar stools needed screws to make them solid. We had very low water pressure in our shower. The broom would fall apart when you tried to use it. We had a row of plugs that we tripped a breaker on. We called Jackie and there was a maintenance man there to get into the locked closet to fix the breaker within 15 minutes. That said, I suspect a couple of hundred dollars spent would make it a five star beach front home. Everyone had a great experience. We hope to return to "Bahama Breeze".

Owner's Response: I appreciate your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed our home. I wish I would have know about the low water pressure in the shower and the bar stools that needed more screws. Our maintenance man could have fixed them for you. We will have him go to the house and address the issues immediately. We look forward to your return in the future. Jackie

Great location - plenty of room for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property was incredibly easy to work with and the house was exactly as advertised. We had a very large group and there was room for everyone. The location was also perfect and we had easy beach access and an incredible view (that wasn't blocked by other houses!). I would definitely recommend this property and plan on staying here again!

Beautiful home - great ocean views

  • 5 of 5

This was beautiful home right on the beach. This was our first time to rent through VRBO and it was easy and communication with the beach house owner was great! She was very quick with her email responses and I felt very comfortable speaking with her. There were some questions we had once we arrived at the property but again, the owner was quick in her response to us. We had a total of 3 families that stayed the weekend and there was plenty of room for everyone without feeling cramped in one house. The bedrooms were in a lower section of the home (just a few steps to get down there) which allowed for privacy if one needed. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen table had enough seating for all of us. The kitchen was updated and beautiful with room for several people to be in there at once. Also, there was a kitchen bar that had lots of bar stools for more seating. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. This is definitely a house we would stay in again and have it bookmarked on our future go-to places!
