About Janet Mathews
I am originally from a small deep east Texas town of San Augustine. I was raised on a ranch and was a barrel racer by the age of 9. I have a great appreciation for all animals and anything outdoors. I was a high school history and psychology teacher. I quit teaching and became a serial entrepreneur. I have been self employed for most of my adult life. It seems that I really like to sell things ( it makes me high). Some of my businesses consisted of selling imprinted sportswear to schools as well as hand painted wall murals. For the last five years, I have taught onsite CPR and First Aid to company employees and schools. I now live in Galveston, Texas and enjoy entertaining and the beauty of the Gulf Coast.
Janet Mathews purchased this House in 2010
Why Janet Mathews chose Jamaica Beach
Because it is cool!! the price is right and you get the best of the bay view as well as the ocean view.
What makes this House unique
You can sit under the house on the hottest day of the summer and there is always a breeze blowing thru the flagstone breezeway. I see many guest downstairs reading and relaxing in early morning while drinking there morning coffee.
Check-in: 3:00 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
You can smoke outside on the deck.
No loud music or partying as this is a quiet street and the neighbors are very aware of what goes on. Do not park in street in front of a neighbors house. Keep music inside after 10pm. Please do not leave dirty dishes in the dishwasher or in the sink. Take any opened food with you. Please do not take towels to the beach or wash sandy clothes in the washer. Do not move any cords near the TV. Please rinse off sand before entering the hot tub. There is a downstairs shower to rinse off with. No smoking in the house. You are provided with a butt bucket outside. The grill is gas so don't put charcoal in it ( it has happened) and turn the propane tank to off when you are finished grilling. It sounds like there are a lot of do not's but all of the above has happened. Just treat the house like you would your own and relax and have a great time.

Happy we stayed!
Janet was a great host! The house is very cute and quaint! We enjoyed our stay!
A great place to stay!
We loved Janet's home in Jamacia Beach—it was really cute, quiet and conveniently located!
Just like home.
Great place! . Had an enjoyable stay with my Family. Look forward to returning again.
House was great! On the bay side, but only a 3 minute ride in the golf cart to the beach
We loved the house. Clean, well equipped, and nicely decorated and furnished. Hot tub felt great to wash away the day. Neighborhood is quiet and everyone was friendly. Local store a few minutes down the road had awesome selection of fresh meats. As good as local butchers. Janet was quick to respond to any questions and no problems ever occurred. I would highly recommend this house to anyone taking a smaller group to the beach. Seeing the fenced yard convinced me to bring our dog next time. The only thing missing was a direct view of the water, but the sunrise and sunset views from the deck were great. The local pool was nice also. Only a 5 minute walk and very clean. Thanks Janet, and we hope to be able to stay there again in the future.
Thanks for the great review. I enjoyed having you. Come back soon.
Lovely Beach House
We stayed in Jamaica Beach for 2 nights June 1-2, and this property was wonderful, totally enjoyed it and will recommend it for anyone. The grounds were large and is pet friendly with a large fenced yard. The insides were very clean and tidy with ample room and comfort, the outside deck is a treat to sit on especially early in the mornings drinking coffee. A golf cart was available but we did not require it this time.
We totally enjoyed the stay and look forward to coming back.
Thanks and see you again on our next time in Jamaica Beach!
Comfy get away
The place was nice and owners were sweet.The place isn't water front but it's walking distance. The hot tub was a lukewarm tub.The house had everything we needed. I would have given a 5 star but the room upstairs was extremely WARM .Besides that great for a little staycation.
