About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

See and hear the rolling ocean waves from the deck of this cute 3 bedroom beach house. Great for entertaining or just relaxing, this bright and cozy beach side home is just steps to the beach for fishing, sun and fun.

The Space
This home is great for entertaining! Dine outside and enjoy the sounds of the Gulf or just relax inside with all the amenities of home. This updated beach house has an open floor plan with a large kitchen area that opens into comfy living and dining areas.

The kitchen features corian countertops, stainless steel appliances, including a side-by side refrigerator, double oven, gas stove-top, microwave and is stocked with dishes, pots & pans, silverware and cooking utensils. Everything you need for those gourmet meals.

The living area has two couches (one is a queen sleeper sofa) as well as an over-sized chair and ottoman. The entertainment center features cable TV and a DVD player, ipod 4 docking station with radio, plenty of games and puzzles and a gas burning fireplace to make things nice and extra cozy in the cooler months.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, tv, plenty of closet space and a private bath. The second guestroom has a queen bed and armoire and the third bedroom is great for kids or singles, with a twin and a bunk bed/trundle that sleeps 4.

Guest Access
In addition to household amenities, you may also use the outdoor shower and outdoor grill on the ground level.

Interaction with Guests
While the owners do not live near the property, the manager is just a phone call away and lives nearby. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Marsha.

The Neighborhood
The view from the deck has an unobstructed beach view and the street in front of the property leads straight to the beach and services only the residents of this small quiet subdivision. Beachside properties have a great view and are close to the beach, but not directly on the beach.

This property is in Beachcomber Estates located 11 miles away from attractions including Schlitterbahn water park, Moody Gardens pyramids of fun and new water park, Pleasure Pier amusement park as well as numerous restaurants and bars. There is also a gas station, liquor store, bar, pizza/burger place and convenience store in walking distance. The Seven Seas Grocery store and Nate's Seafood restaurant is just 1 minute down the road.

Getting Around
Jamaica Beach is approximately 50 minutes from downtown Houston and about 15 minutes from the seawall in Galveston.

Car: Necessary

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.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: 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.

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

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
