This area is always cool with a great breeze even in August. There is also a bay view for awesome sunsets and beach view on third floor bedroom balcony.

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.

Comfy get away

  • 4 of 5

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.

nice beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in the moby dick home. It was good being so close to the beach. Having a hot tub to come back to at the end of a long touristy day was great. Beware of the monster Mosquitos . Would recommend this home to friends.

Great Vacation Rental

This property was comfortable and relaxing. There was a hot tub located right on the patio. There was plenty of space for everyone. This was a great experience. It had a fully stocked kitchen with equipment. Washer and dryer made it convenient to do laundry before leaving.

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 2 kids. It was a reunion with our children and it worked out very well for us. The out door space was relaxing. The house was clean and Janet was helpful. Overall it was really good and we would all stay there again.

Very cozy

  • 4 of 5

We had a mother and daughter retreat, 3 families, and it was perfect. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep. The local store was just a few blocks walking distance from the house. The beach was a mile away so we drove which was perfect as we had all of our beach gear to carry. We just drove right on the beach and unloaded. Overall, I would highly recommend renting this house again.
