Property description

The perfect family vacation, just blocks from the beach and the bay.
Wrap around deck to enjoy breath-taking sunrises and sunsets while relaxing in the sea breeze and the shade. Only blocks to the beach or the bay and a short 15 minute drive to all the Galveston attractions! Full kitchen, family room and two bedrooms. Perfect for a family of five or two couples. Sleeps up to six with the hide-a-bed couch. Free WiFi, local TV DVD and Netflix. Outside shower to wash off the sand after your day at the beach. Fenced in yard for that special member of the family. (fence is 3 feet high, so dogs should be 30 lbs or less).

We are happy to offer our Jamaica Beach home for your vacation enjoyment. We have always enjoyed Galveston as our vacation destination and with the new attractions going in, Galveston is even more fun!

Take a stroll on the secluded Jamaica Beach. Fly a kite or listen to the waves. View spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Enjoy the Jamaica Beach public swimming pool and kiddie park with the kids. Visit a full range of amusements at Pleasure Pier, Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens, the historic Strand with shops and dining, some of the best birding sites in the nation, year-round golf courses and some of the best fishing anywhere. We hope you enjoy Jamaica Breeze in Jamaica Beach, our home away from home! - Bill and Jackie Tinsley

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Bill and Jackie met as Baylor students and celebrated their 47th anniversary last year. They have traveled to most continents and lived in Minnesota for eight years. They have three children, five grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Jamaica Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
Having raised three children and after spending our lives in Christian ministry, we know how important it is for families to have an affordable place to 'get away' and spend time together. Galveston has always been one of our favorite places, even before our kids were born. Jackie grew up in Freeport, so it is almost like 'going home.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is something mystical and timeless about the ocean, the sound of the waves and the salt air. We hope Jamaica Breeze will be a special place for families to enjoy one another, to relax, refresh and to renew.
