About Lisa Carnes

Building memories and having Fun is what our family is all about. Originally from Oklahoma we settled in Texas for a total of 14 years now, and call Houston our home. With 2 grown daughters the canal house is a great gathering place. My husband and I have been Real Estate Investors since 1999. We enjoy all water related activities and have a passion for Real Estate. This move allowed us to combine all of our Water hobbies and Real Estate into one. We enjoy helping others invest in Real Estate, if you have interest in buying a home on the Island, let us know we are happy to answer any questions you might have about the current real estate market.

Lisa Carnes purchased this house in 2014

Why Lisa Carnes chose Galveston

My husband and I 1st came to Jamaica Beach 25 years ago and fell in love with the area. We have looked on and off for years to purchase a vacation home and are excited our dream has finally come true. For us the canal is the best of both worlds; fishing and catching crab out your backdoor, or going to the beach just down the street. You can do it all on the canal!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our home because of the open floor plan. It provides plenty of room for large family gatherings. Easy access to the beaches for sand castle building, boogie boarding, kayaking are several of our families favorite activities. The wide canal and the excellent fishing in the area are why we chose Jamaica Beach.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The owners are so nice and great to work with. They love their vacation home and because they stay there frequently themselves, everything you could need is there and available for your use. It's a nice, quiet neighborhood as well as very safe. It's so much fun to be right on the canal and the Palapa is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy it. We look forward to staying there again!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Get-Away in Jamaica Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It was just perfect for the number of people we had (4 adults, a 4 and 6 year old.) And it definitely would have accommodated more very comfortably. It had everything we needed for the 4 days we were there over the Thanksgiving holidays. And the owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Very, very nice people. The community of Jamaica Beach is a wonderfully friendly place. And it took us no time to get to downtown Galveston...very easy drive! We've rented several VRBO properties and sometimes when we arrive, the pictures posted of the houses were not quite what we expected...always very nice, but not quite exact. But this house, I must say, the pictures did not do it justice. It's a beautiful place and plenty of room to enjoy an extended stay. If you go during the holidays, you must head over to Moody Gardens and visit "Iceland" -- large tent of ice sculptures at a freezing 9 degrees! And if you have children with you, take in the 4D "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and the walkway of Christmas lights. Our little ones loved it. Such a great trip with even greater memories.

Great time celebrating my husband's birthday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the end of August 2016 and absolutely loved our stay. The house was was nicely decorated and very clean. The palapa was probably our favorite feature of the house and we spent many hours enjoying it. I would definitely recommend this house to others, and can't wait for our next visit!

Wonderful Home With Everything We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

Canal Fun House just gets better and better every year. This is our 3rd summer to rent this home. We love it so much that we have already booked again for next Summer. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking large family meals. Bathrooms are amazing and the beds are clean and comfy. There is something for everyone in our family to enjoy, kayaks, ping pong tournaments, night fishing and trips to the beach. Every visit here there is more to enjoy, the owners are always improving each year. This year they added a shady palapa. There is always a cool breeze to cool you off and is a peaceful place to gather in the evenings for dinners or star gazing. The owners are quick to respond and very helpful. We have found our permanent vacation spot!
