NEW TO THE VACATION RENTAL FAMILY!!!
This beautifully appointed home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths upstairs, and a convenient ground level bathroom. A brand new hot tub was just added to this already delightful home! Enjoy the hot water outdoor shower under 40 foot palm trees that will make you never want to shower indoors again! Comfortably sleeps eight adults on 3 queen sized beds and a new sofa bed. Well equipped kitchen with all appliances, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, and waffle iron. Table/bar seating for 10 people to dine indoors although you will probably spend your time in the beautiful outdoor space with 4 tables and plenty of seating. If you are indoors you can enjoy the original art on the walls while watching the 46 inch television with blu-ray player.
Bask in the sun on a huge upstairs deck or relax in the expansive shady space downstairs. Listen to music from the outdoor speakers with stereo and i-pod connection while mixing a frosty beverage in the Margaritaville machine or grabbing a cold drink from the downstairs refrigerator. Outdoor grill available for your steaks and propane burner with stock pot for a memorable shrimp boil. The fire pit will surely be a hit with your friends and family!
Need a little outdoor fun? Two beginner kayaks and cruiser bicycles are there to cruise the canals and the bi ways.
Enjoy fishing in the bay? Bring your boat which can be docked onsite in the convenient boat house with lift. Jet ski lift is also available. Night fishing is great fun from the fishing deck into the underwater lights where you can see the fish swimming. Just a short distance to dining, drinking, grocery shopping, and convenience stores.
We have been enjoying The West End in Jamaica Beach for years. We know you will love it too!
This property is a fisherman dream! Great view of the water right from your own deck and backyard!
The boat slip and jet ski lift are just some of the advantages to having this vacation spot to yourself! Enjoy the use of 2 bicycles and kayaks and the luxury of a hot tub. Cook in the fully stocked kitchen or enjoy an outside barbecue or shrimp boil.
We had a wonderful time at Mermaids Lair. This canal house just about everything you will need for a great vacation. Tana was amazing, she organized extra bikes, extra kayaks and was so attentive to everything.
We have two grown sons that absolutely loved the kayaks and riding the bikes to to beach. The hot tub was so nice at the end of the day. We had great fishing, but mostly fed the crab trap. My sons caught at least 15 crabs.
Mornings on the upper deck and afternoons to the lower deck. You will love the outside shower and a convenient bathroom. The grounds are so lovely with unique and beautiful sculpture and plants.
We tried out the margarita machine, the grill and the crab pot.
You can wander around this cute house and look at the art work and special touches. The house is just right for 4 or 5, but you can sleep 8 people.....problem.....no where to put luggage, etc for 5-8. Children, yes.....big people just don't travel light and will not want to share the room.
So, just travel light and don't invite the entire family! One more thing, it is so peaceful on the canal.
Check out Katie's for fresh seafood, Gaidos for a special dinner, Misquitos and Millers on the Seawall for great food. Have a great time!
We rented this property for a long weekend in August. We used it as the base of operations for a guy's weekend fishing trip. Well appointed property, well maintained. Manager was easily available and helpful. Used the kayaks a few times and the bikes. The location is a little far (15-20 mins) from Galveston proper, but there's several beach access points nearby along with a grocery store, gas station and bait shop that kept us from having to drive back to town for much. The bedrooms are a little small, but not unworkable. Next time we'll bring a boat. Good crabbing off the fishing deck.
Great place to stay! The location is fabulous. Plenty of fun activities to do; i.e., kayak, bike, fish, grill, shrimp boil, hot tub, etc. You can bring your Jet Ski and/or boat for added fun!!! Sitting out on the patio with the breeze & just hanging with your besties or family members is priceless. We did our 2016 Girls Only Weekend & it was perfect for the 7 of us (holds up to 8). Loved having the music outside, a bathroom off the deck outside was a huge bonus, the hammock was heavenly and the outdoor shower; well, you won't want to shower indoors again (LOL). Everything was clean & ready for us when we arrived. I would recommend you bring extra toilet paper, as there were only 2 rolls & no ice maker in either freezer, so be sure to stock up on ice :). Additionally, bring towels for showering even if you pay the additional fee for lines & towels, as we did not have enough (however, there is a washer/dryer on site too, so that truly helps). All and all a GREAT trip with lots of memories... I would book it again in a heartbeat !!!!!!!!!! The view was to die for (I'd attach a picture of it if I could - just beautiful). We all wished we could have stayed longer; didn't want to leave. Thanks for making our trip a fabulous one!!!!
Our Family absolutely loved "Maiden's Lair." It was neat, clean, and had a lot of amenities. We docked our boat everyday on the pier. The grounds were very well kept up. I would recommend this as a vacation house anyday. Thanks to the owner's who take pride in their Jamaica Beach home.
First just let me say that this is one of the best managed properties we've ever rented. Tana was always attentive to every question or request we had. The cabin was a little small but cozy, perfect for a couple or small family. Everything was clean and in order when we arrived. The remote controls were a little confusing but we figured them out. Beds and furniture were comfortable. Sun deck was great. (We set up an awning for shade.) Downstairs was the highlight of this cabin. Everything you need is there, eliminating those annoying trips up and down the stairs. Refrigerator, washer, dryer, bathroom, margarita machine, gas grill, hot shower... all downstairs... including a hot tub that put the icing on our cake. Talk about relaxing! There's also a boat launch and jet ski launch. Plenty of nice patio furniture and even a great sound system too. The tropical landscaping was awesome. All in all, this was a great deal and we will be renting here again.
The Mermaids Lair was awesome and a place we will look to visit again! The bottom deck is great for any time of the day for fishing or just hanging out. It always had a nice breeze and was always shaded. The kids loved the canoes and the hammock the most! They also spent some decent time in the hot tub. We spent a ton of time fishing and caught sting rays, dog fish, croakers, perch, crabs, and a few other things here and there. It was also great to be just a little bit away from seawall/Galveston so you felt "away" from it all. We were there for Dance Nationals and had a wonderful time!!! The place was very clean, everything worked well, and the owners did a great job making us feel at home and had everything marked and instructions/help out for us.
I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for something in the 3 bedroom range, and especially anyone just wanting to relax and enjoy the water, maybe a little cooking out, and some fishing! While in Galveston we went to...
*Moody Garden's - decent, but a little pricey for the Aquarium
*Cinema 11 - old place, saw Finding Dora, ok for a quick movie if you want
We ate at Millers on the Seawall (highly recommended), Rainforest Cafe (it's ok, more for the kids), IHOP (it's pancakes!), Sonic (great drinks), and we got pizza from Blue Water Grill (really really good)
I would highly recommend Millers and Blue Water Grill. Both are great places and reasonable prices.
Again, 5 stars to Mermaids Lair, great place, great owners, we will look to be back!
