About Cindy Young

We've lived in Houston for the last 30 years and have been vacationing in Galveston all of those years. We stayed at Jamaica Beach canal home rentals for the majority of those 30 years, so we decided it was time to make one of these wonderful properties our own.

Cindy Young purchased this house in 2014

Why Cindy Young chose Jamaica Beach

Our love of fishing has lead us to rentals on Jamaica Beach canals for the majority of those 30 years. We decided it was time to make one of these wonderful properties our own. When we looked at this house, we knew it was perfect for us. It has great fishing, wonderful views and plenty of room for our family and friends to gather either upstairs or downstairs at the bar.

What makes this house unique

The swing on the deck downstairs that looks out across the canal was too inviting to pass up. We knew this wonderful house was perfect and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very nice.. Great to have the room down stairs for people that like to go to bed early and get up early to fish.. We loved every minute of it and did not want to leave.. THANKS AGAIN AND WE ARE ALREADY TALKING ABOUT WHEN WE CAN DO IT AGAIN--

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! Love being right on the canal with plenty of dock space to fish from. Being provided with bikes, a 2 person kayak, and even beach toys only made the experience that much more fun. We caught lots of fish and it was a short ride to the beach. House was the perfect size to accommodate my family of 7. Kitchen was well stocked so besides purchasing small food items, we didn't want for a thing.

Owners were quick to respond to any questions or problems we had. We will definitely look to them for future renting. Thank you!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time to rent this house. It is clean and well stocked. We always use the kayak and bicycles. The community pool is clean and fun. The owner (Cindy) is very friendly and accommodating, and responds quickly. I always enjoy talking to her.

Great location with clean and tidy living area and a great downstairs bar overlooking the water

  • 5 of 5

The house is neatly tucked away in a quiet culdesac with nice homes on both sides. The living room, kitchen, and bedrooms are neatly kept with comfortable beds and a large master bathroom. There's plenty of dishes, silverware, and pots and pans for whatever you plan on cooking. The downstairs bar area is definitely the highlight of this house and was the cause of some late nights as it was hard to leave. Fishing right off the patio was very convenient. I recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet getaway on the water while being close to the beach and in-town amenities.

We had great time staying here. Definitely will rent again. House needed a few update but everything was great. Only thing that we was concerned about was the top deck rail was made of wood and it's rotten over time. It's a little wobbly standing up there and leaning on it. Couldn't give 5 star because of that but over all it's was great staying here. We hope it would be fix if we rent it again next time.

As Great As Always

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at this house and there are countless reasons why we continue to come back.

The location of the house tucked away in Jamaica Beach provides a nice escape from the downtown city of Galveston as well as the overcrowded beaches.

The spacious living room area with the upstairs deck is great for enjoying a morning drink overlooking the bay or even just getting some much needed sun.

The downstairs bar and deck is by far the most used and highly regarded location in the house where you can fish from multiple flood lights or simply put a game on the bar's tv and serve drinks to your fellow residents.

The two upstairs bathrooms are what you would expect from a bay house are clean enough to serve their purpose.

The management of the house is simply the main reason we continue to seek this house for a brief getaway as they are always very helpful and quick if anything isn't up to your expectations.

I could not say enough great things about this house and if you are looking for a getaway in Galveston, look no further.
