Welcome to the ToriiAdore, an original Jamaica Beach cottage with a Japanese influenced exterior. This house has been lovingly restored with an open concept floor plan with one bedroom and one bath.The house is light and airy and the deck is half covered for your comfort. The boat slip features a porch swing for unwinding and relaxing and the dock is perfect for fishing and crabbing. Located right on the water, just minutes to the beach and two blocks from the city park and the new community pool scheduled to open in June.
We decided to stay on the canal for a change, and are so happy to have found this adorable little house. On your arrival, you will find a porch swing and deck right under the house (with available crab traps for guests to use) and a nice sized deck on the house level (with table/chairs/bench). The house is directly on the canal, so guests can fish right from either deck. Jamaica Beach is wonderful, friendly community and a children's park is a five minute walk away and the beach only about a 15 minute walk down the road.
The house itself is bright, sunny, and cozy. This is a rental for a small family, as seating is limited and the table just seats four. The oven is small, but I was happily surprised to find that I didn't really need to bring anything else besides food for cooking (plenty of pots, pans, plates, bowls, etc). The tv is small and no cable, but we brought dvd's from home and a redbox is located at a nearby store. Wifi worked great. The bunk beds located in the living room were pretty small - definitely for kids - but there is a futon that could also serve as a bed. The one bedroom was fine, although the bed is not large either.
The location is quiet (two houses down from a cow pasture) and the neighbors friendly. Just 5 minutes to the state park and about 15 into Galveston. Sidewalks were great for the kids and their bikes.
This is a very nice little cottage on the canal. The parking leaves a little to be desired. It is set up more for a small or compact vehicle. Had issues getting in and out in my full sized truck. Loved the night fishing with the light right of the boat slip. If you go, might want to take a grill. The one that was there has seen better days. Beach access is very easy from here. Just a short drive across the road. Several places to buy groceries that are within a few minutes. Will stay here again.
We chose this place for two reasons: it was right on the water which allowed us some other free activities (fishing, crabbing) and the price point was very affordable. I kept reminding me of these two things throughout our stay.
Away from the hustle and bustle of town
On the water
Fishing and Crabbing on sight
House was Clean and we felt safe
All beds were very small. (I am 5 ft tall and was too long for the bunk bed)
Beds were not made (Sheets were provided but I expected them to be fully made when I sent my kids to bed. I realized upon waking them in the morning that they had slept directly on the mattress.)
Not any storage at all for empty suitcases, food, or anything other than clothing (Even a note in the hamper that we were not allowed to use it)
Very crowded with lots of furniture
Patio furniture was in sad shape (loungers were extremely rusted and did not function properly and table top was warped and coming apart)
For the price, it was a good place to stay. I think it would be great for a couple and possibly a family with a small child.
We had a wonderful time there! We have 3 small children & they loved the fishing we did there. I would recommend this place to anyone!
We were so happy with our experience at ToriiAdore. It was quaint and cozy, and just what our little family was looking for. My husband and son had fun fishing in the canal right off the deck to the house. It was just a short drive into town, which we didn't mind at all. We will definitely be returning to ToriiAdore next time we are in Galveston!!!!
Jamaica beach small, safe family-friendly community.
