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 16 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 Jamaica Beach

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.

Great open spaces, Tiki hut and small beach area on the canal!

  • 5 of 5

Love this house! Had loads of room for large family. Not only a big deck plus a Tiki hut that you could seat lots of people and a "sandy beach" with loungers and plenty of sand to build a sand castle. Owners are very friendly and want to make sure you have a great time! Kayaks and paddle board were put to good use along with the ping pong and football tables! Modern kitchen and the openness made meals fun! Would highly recommend this place if we didn't want to keep it our little secret 😂�👏�🚣�🏻�👌�🛶�

A PLACE TO ESCAPE AND SLOW DOWN

  • 5 of 5

Lisa, the owner, was extremely helpful in answering our questions and welcoming us to their lovely 2nd home. We had a party of 6, my 3 adult sons and 2 adult grandsons. Everything was perfect. The House was perfect in every way with zero problems. We planned the trip to just slow down and escape the normal day to day stress. This place was the solution to our expectations---great deck front and rear! PLUS, the pergola to the side was excellent in providing shade, breeze and a view down the wide canal. We spent hours sitting around this beautiful structure and enjoying the ceiling fan and wood deck. Everyone commented about the comfortable beds and great towels. Everyone had a turn at some ping-pong contests/tournaments. One of our primary goals was to get in some fishing. We had our share of good catches in the canal at the house and cruising the green underwater lights all over the neighborhood. We have been to Jamaica Beach several times and enjoy the character of the neighborhood and the well maintained homes in addition to the convenience of some grocery stores and gas stations close by. In addition, we made several short trips to the beach just across the highway. All in All, if you are looking for a VERY GREAT place to stay, THIS IS IT!

Great place to gather with family.

  • 5 of 5

This home has all the comforts of one's own home and more! The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils and pots/pans/serving dishes you could need. The ONLY thing we didn't find was a wine bottle opener which we borrowed from the neighbor. The Palapa is great!! It has a fire pit and ample seating for the whole family. The kids loved the 2 kayaks, paddle board, and volleyball net (bring your own ball). The garage was a little warm to hang out in for the ping pong table and foosball but opening the garage door in the front helps. All the beds were comfortable except for the twin beds upstairs, but that is usually the case with twin bed mattresses. The owner, Lisa, is very nice to work with and very accommodating. There were a few things that we couldn't get to work (green night fishing light, speakers for the music, one of the lights for the deck, and the ceiling fan in upstairs bedroom). None were crucial to enjoying our stay, but when I let her know about those things, she said she had a handy man that could've come over to fix them. It truly is a 'fun house', and we hope to be back soon.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Great property! Very comfortable and nice. My children dug in the private sandy beach area all weekend while we watched from the cabana. Our only problem was the lack of fish where we were, which was just bad luck and nothing to do with the property. Maybe another time of year would be a different fishing story.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Property was amazing and perfect for our group--we had 4 adults and 3 kids and never felt cramped! Being on the canal was great for the fishermen in our group and the property offered great patios and outdoor areas for everyone to relax and enjoy after a long day at the beach. The house was clean and offered more than we could have ever needed during our stay. Owner was extremely kind and checked in on us on our drive down; had great instructions for check in/out; and checked in on us our last day. Our only complaint was that we had to go home! We will definitely rent this property again for future stays!

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Lisa. We had a great vacation since the house was made-to-order for us. There was so much to do but we didn't have time to enjoy all the amenities. The girls loved the paddle board and crab trap. The Tiki Hut is so refreshing. We're hoping to come back next summer.
