Perfect house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house fits 7 adults and 3 children very easily and comfortably. Pat was so kind and accommodating. Make sure your bring your own tp, trash bags and any spices you need. Super close to the beach and to a grocery store for those things we forgot. The porch was lovely. I think the only thing we would change about our trip is to not come on a holiday weekend because Jamaica Beach was very crowded. Thanks for sharing you lovely home, Pat!

Owner's Response: We are so glad your family enjoyed their weekend together at our beach house. The house is second row from the beach but, as you stated, it is a very short walk to the beach and the view from the porch is great. Holidays can be very busy at the beach. We do hope our will be able to return.

Spacious and comfortable beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 adults, a toddler and our two dogs immensely enjoyed our time at this lovely second-row home! We all fit so comfortably as the house is much bigger than I imagined! The rooms and living spaces were all very spacious and the 4 restrooms were a plus.

From the shady porch, you could feel a nice breeze and see the ocean. It was an easy, short walk to the beach each day and upon return, the outdoor shower was very convenient. We cooked dinner each night and found all the utensils and platters that were needed in the kitchen.

The owner, Pat, was very responsive and helpful if we had any questions. We would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it! Thank you, Pat, for a great weekend!

Perfect for what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I actually don't want to review this place because I want to keep it a secret. But, I will be nice and tell you it's a really well done beach house and I don't think the pictures do it justice. I loved sitting on the front porch!! We all did. It is very well stocked with kitchen stuff, but, read the instructions about soap and toilet paper.

Beach Trip with Kids

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful and we hope to use it again. We loved sitting on the porch in the rain or shine and it had plenty of seating. With two small children having a gate at the top of the porch stairs was wonderful so we never had to worry about the kids playing on the stairs. The outdoor shower with warm water was appreciated as well as access to the laundry facilities. There is also a hose to rinse sandy toys and feet. We brought our own toys but there were a number of toys in the laundry room to use as well. The short walk to the beach made it easy to go back and forth if the little one got tired. There is also a handheld shower head in one of the bathrooms which made bathing the kids easy. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of plates, bowls, & utensils including plastic ones for the kids. We cooked a number of meals and didn’t want for any utensil or type of pan. The house has a Wi-Fi account so we could stream shows for the kids on the rainy days. The owner was very responsive and friendly, I highly recommend this house!

Enjoyed House!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great set-up for us! The downstairs bedroom is not attached to upstairs. You must use outside stairs. It was roomy & we were glad we had so many bathrooms. Bring trash bags for the bathrooms as there are no trash cans. Enjoyed how close it is to beach! Owner is very sweet!

Owner's Response: We are glad your family was able to spend a relaxing time together at our beach house. We have contacted our house manager and he assures us that as of today every bathroom has a trashcan. We apologize for any inconvenience for you and your guests and thank you for making mention of it. Have a wonderful summer. We hope to be able to welcome you back on a future visit.

Jamaica Beach is minutes away from all the activities that Galveston has to offer: restaurants, theaters, special events, Moody Gardens, historic tours, water park, Pleasure Pier, state park, various live performances, etc. But most of all Jamaica Beach is a family-oriented destination where you can relax and have fun. Please let us know the age range and number of people when you inquire.
