About Property Manager-Marsha 832-277-5691

We love our home so much that when my family is unable to enjoy it, we love to share it with others so they too, like us, can make memories that will last a lifetime.

Property Manager-Marsha 832-277-5691 purchased this house in 2010

Why Property Manager-Marsha 832-277-5691 chose Galveston

Our home was our second purchase in this very small neighborhood. We bought the one next door in 2006 and then our family grew so we needed more space so we bought this house. We fell in love with it and when the grandparents stopped traveling with us, we sold the house next door and kept this one. Jamaica Beach specifically is the best location because it is its own city with Beachcomber Estates only having about 20 beachside homes and that makes the beach not only more exclusive but very well taken care of from the constant cleaning, to the safety of our own police patrolling every few hours. It is like a small town feel on Galveston Island. Other neighborhoods have hundreds of beach side homes (with many more bayside homes) and the beaches are not taken care of as well and have many more people sharing them. Not to mention we have our own fire department with a rescue team minutes away from the beach. They also recently added a swimming pool and playground area. A grocery store is a minute away from the house for all your basic needs and a liquor store, bar and a couple restaurants are close as well. We could have bought any property on the island and we picked this one, in this location, because to us it is the best.

What makes this house unique

When you arrive at our home you will be pleasantly surprised with the large open kitchen and living room. It is great for preparing meals in the gourmet kitchen and still being involved in all the action between the living room and dining room. The views are magnificent of beach and ocean from these rooms. In the morning, watch the sunrise out of the ocean. In the evening, grab a chair on our sunset deck listen to the ocean and watch the sun retire on the horizon. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. At the end of your stay, we hope you have enjoyed making memories in our home.

Great Place to stay with an Ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for a Girl's weekend with 5 ladies. It was a very clean place and had lots of room in the kitchen and living area to visit. The ocean view and short walk to the beach made it perfect for a relaxing weekend. We enjoyed visiting on the balcony which faces the ocean as well. We hope to come back!

Nice and comfortable house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and was only a short walk (very short...closer than it looks in the picture even) to the beach. It had everything you need, including a very nice kitchen with a huge island, a large deck overlooking the ocean, and plenty of space for our family. The WiFi worked great and was easy to connect to. This area of the beach was very quiet as was the neighborhood..

just what we were looking for.

Beach Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is not your average beach house. It is a beautifully decorated and well-equipped home. We had a small family gathering to celebrate our child's graduation and everyone complimented the lovely place. It is immaculately clean and has a fully stocked kitchen. We enjoyed spending time on the deck and the one minute walk to the beach. You know you have found a gem when your spouse says they could retire there. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home!

Fun family weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

We came down and stayed the weekend with a small group of friends. There were 6 adults and 4 kids ranging in age from 1-5. The house had plenty of room and was very comfortable for us all. Everything was clean, no funny smells, all fresh linens and towels, A/C worked great, and all of the appliances worked well. (those are all things we've had issues with in the past renting other places) Great location with almost no traffic out front at all and a very short walk to the beach. Overall, we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again.

Let me warn you, the island has too many things you will want to do for just one trip. Just beaching with this location is a favorite but if you want to venture out, the neighborhood has a community pool and playscape just across the road. The house is located 11 miles away from Schlitterbahn water park open all year and Moody Gardens which has 3 pyramids inside are an aquarium (with seals, sea lions and penguins), rain forest (monkeys, sloths, bats, and much more), 3 & 4D theatres and outside a recently added new water park. Kick up the adventure with Pleasure Pier amusement park, a Moody Mansion Tour, or Magic Carpet Putt put Golf or race some go-carts. Also, horseback ride on the beach in front of the house. Charter a fishing boat, wade fish or go crabbing to bring home the dinner and have fun doing it. As you can imagine being on the coast, we have numerous Seafood Restaurants- Landry's, Gaido's, Fish Tales, Salt Water Grill, Fisherman's Wharf, Joe's Crab Shack, Watermans and Nate's Seafood to name a few. Not a seafood fan, don't worry great pizza and burgers are just across the street. Italian restaurants include Dibella's, Mario's, Gino's and many more. Ride the Bolivar ferry and see dolphins playing on the wake. Great place for boogie boarding, surfing and kite boarding. Rent a jet ski and jump some waves. Bird watching in Galveston is one of the top places in the United States. Get your own duck call when you take a Galveston Duck tour on bus that turns into a boat for a drive and float, viewing sites around the town. Since I am not able to list everything, check out Galveston website for even more information and they will list by date any special events that are happening during your stay.
