About Traci Taylor Smith

I am a business owner in the Clear Lake area.

I have been coming to Galveston since I was a little girl visiting relatives and vacationing… I fell in love with the Jamaica Beach neighborhood a few years back , and soon knew I wanted to be a homeowner down on the bayside…

I enjoy the outdoors by the water, and fell very relaxed @ Pearl Basin.

I have personally refinished many pieces of the furniture in my new home. Not to mention designed the new bathrooms and did all the decor as well. I am very passionate about my new project, and hope to share it with people that will take care of it and appreciate all my hard work.

Traci Taylor Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Traci Taylor Smith chose Jamaica Beach

This property is a large home, to accommodate a lot of people comfortably. It is newly decorated in a beach, shabby chic style themed. Along with all new bedding, soft fresh sheets & towels and a fully stocked kitchen for those who love to cook & entertain.

It's a perfect place for a girls get-away, or fishermen that want to drop their boat in boat slip & dock their boat in slip next to house for their stay.. Also recommend for families with older children that love outdoor activities…

What makes this house unique

Enjoy beautiful sunsets off of breezy balcony overlooking large pool, the wetlands & canal on one side of house… and on opposite balcony enjoy beautiful sunrise over the basin, while watching the boats put in right off my property, and enjoying your water toy as well.

Lot's of wide open spaces set in a lush tropical environment which puts one in a relaxing vacation mode.

This property is surrounded by water, tropical palms & flowers, a thatched hut that sits 9 to 10 people, along with a large counter bar & outdoor sink great for cooking & entertaining. Wide open skies to enjoy mother nature, so If you love the stars & moonlit nights, sounds of palm trees rustling in sea breezes, this is the place for you!

Also a great place to drop a kayak, or paddle board in for a nice ride on the water to see all sorts of wildlife on pretty water. Or fish off the dock, and then take a bike ride towards the bay to catch a beautiful sunset. And just 10 blocks away from the beach...

Beautiful home featuring owner's attention to detail throughout the property from plants to art. Every kitchen utincil imaginable was available. TV's throughout the home kept little guest occupied with kids shows when needed. Short cart drive to the beach.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This property is just what you want. Traci has thought of everything to make this a satisfying vacation spot. We had enough room for friends & family to mingle and relax, even though we had some rain days it was quite enjoyable, weather upstairs or hanging out on the patio by the pool. I'm sure we will be returning.

Awesome bay/beach rental with an abundance of decks and porches

  • 5 of 5

Large bay home decorated with loving detail in beach/mermaid theme. Loved the decor, comfy bedrooms and a kitchen with everything you might need! Enjoyed the Netflix on televisions in every bedroom. The pool and outdoor landscaping were incredible. Lots of beautiful tropical plants. The porches and decks seemed to call us by name. Lots of large and small outdoor spaces. The grandkids had an awesome time! Loved the beautiful outdoor bar! Made great memories!

Spring Break 2017

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home!! The owner was fantastic to work with. The home was clean and updated, it had everything we needed. The pool area and backyard is fabulous! We felt like we were on a tropical island the entire time. Great Tiki bar and bathroom adjacent to the pool area, kids loved the water slide! Plenty of outdoor furniture for sure. Quiet clean area in Jamaica Beach. My son rode the kayak in the canal waters and we enjoyed looking at all the homes. Plenty of pillows and blankets, kitchen is fully stocked. We rented a golf card for the week to take over to the beach and run to the close gas station and liquor store. We will be repeat renters for sure!!

Best vacation spot ever

  • 5 of 5

At first I was a bit reluctant to reserve this property due to slightly higher price than some of the other properties. But I used to live in Galveston and have rented several homes over the years, and this place was worth every penny. Immaculately clean on arrival, beautifully decorated, sleep inducing bedding, in a great neighborhood. We had a bunch of plans for things to do around the island, but no one wanted to leave the house!!! Kitchen was well equipped for at home cooking which was particularly handy in the mornings. Our kids were in the pool all day with grandparents sitting outside in the covered areas. TV's in every room, extra chairs, bath robes, the owner has thought of everything!!! Having netflix available was a particularly nice and thoughtful touch.

From the moment we requested the booking owner was available, including throughout our stay there, but not at all intrusive. My family says this should be an annual spot for our vacations.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Owner is super sweet and a genuinely nice person, which is hard to find sometimes.
