About the Property

Beachfront home on Galveston's west end in Jamaica Beach, 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom

Beachfront Getaway is a beautiful beachfront home located on Galveston west end in popular Jamaica Beach.

This home features a fenced in yard for your pets, and is just a short walk around the dunes and you are on the beach. If you enjoy fishing, this home is located right next to Galveston Island State Park, where it is legal to fish without a fishing license.

Beachfront Getaway features a large front deck overlooking the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. It includes a downstairs private shower built for two, making it easy to clean off after a day spent relaxing on the beach.

The front rooms and the kitchen feature vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan. There are many large windows facing the beach showcasing our spectacular views, while making it easy to sit and relax in the comfort of your home while watching your kids or friends play on the beach.

Jamaica Beach is located on the west end of Galveston Island and is the only other city on the island that has its own police force, fire department, paramedics, water rescue and emergency services, making Jamaica Beach one of the safest and most family friendly beaches on the island. With plenty of restaurants located nearby, you can spend your entire vacation in Jamaica Beach.

Beachfront on Jamaica Beach

Galveston Island is not a big island so everything is fairly close. Jamaica Beach is considered one of the best family vacation spots on the island due to the fact, we are a city within a city.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: This house has been in my family since the 1980's. My brother and I own the house and I am in charge of renting it.

Why the Owner Chose Jamaica Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
Jamaica Beach is well known as the best family friendly beach on the island. We are a city within a city and that means faster fire, rescue and police service. Our house is off a private road, near the state park. Plus we are right on the beach, literally. You can't beat this house, the location and the incredible views from outside and inside the house!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is actual beachfront. With large front windows, you can watch your kids play on the beach from the inside of the house. The house is always super clean and we update the bedding regularly. Our house is pet friendly and has a large fenced in yard that even big dogs can enjoy. You will be glad to know, we have a strict 'no pet on bed' policy.
