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 last year, 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 Galveston

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.

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...

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.

Fabulous Family Fourth

  • 5 of 5

Pearl Basin was the perfect retreat for our family over the 4th of July weekend! The home interior is BEAUTIFUL, comfortable, and was spotless when we arrived. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. I loved the double ovens and extra fridge downstairs to store larger items and water. Having flat screen tv's in every room was a nice touch and my family appreciated the wifi. The beach is close by and easy to access but by far the majority of our time was spent in the fabulous backyard! The pool was large enough for our family of 10 ( 8 adults and 2 children) and the slide was a fun addition. The landscaping is gorgeous and you can tell that the owner takes great pride in her home and yard. The grill came in handy for burgers and dogs and there is plenty of seating for everyone to eat outside. Our 20-somethings enjoyed the lounge chairs for tanning and there was plenty of seating on the deck and under the palapa if you just wanted to enjoy the breeze. The city pool and park are only a block away but my family never wanted to leave the house! The owner was a joy to work with, always responding promptly to my texts and emails. We have stayed in rentals before where the home didn't live up to the description but this home exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay there again!

Birthday bash for Mimi

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for making my birthday celebration so much fun! Each summer for half a decade, I get to celebrate my birthday with my two adult girls and their families, which include six grandchildren. We always love the Jamaica Beach area. But this time, I must say, we had the finest of accommodations. The place is beautifully decorated, including the best of everything. The beds and linens were of the highest standards. The kitchen was fully stocked with any item you might need to cook meals or bake. The pool and surrounding landscaping was in the spirit of vacationing. I would recommend this site for all your family gatherings. I hope to return to celebrate year after year.
