About Jeanna & Troy Leek
As travelers ourselves, we're excited for the opportunity to allow people to visit Galveston Island for a reasonable price; the hotel prices can be ridiculous here in the Summer, and it's better to have all of the comforts of home! We like sharing our home by the beach with others.We both love boating and anything that has to do with the water! We also enjoy cooking, strength training, scuba diving sailing, all other water sports!
Jeanna & Troy Leek purchased this House in 2012
Why Jeanna & Troy Leek chose San Jacinto
We purchased this property to have a place just steps from the beach. We have lived in Galveston for over 17 years and love the Island life. We hope to share the experience with you!

Small but very well done
The location is perfect for the beach. The neighborhood is a cute collection of beach homes and trees only blocks from the seawall. The condition of the bungalow is very good and the landscaping is beautiful. We had everything we needed to cook and plenty of towels. It is small but the layout works well with a full shower downstairs and relatively large bath upstairs. Dog friendly with a nice alley to walk if your animal needs some space. If I had to state one negative, it would be the lack of a washer/dryer but we had planned accordingly. Overall excellent experience.
We drove down from the Houston area to stay for a few days, and this bungalow was absolutely perfect! The location was very convenient to the beach and restaurants. The hosts were attentive, yet not intrusive. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean and stocked. The furniture and bedding were comfortable. We have zero complaints and would definitely stay again!
Thank you so much for your kind review. We work very hard make everyone’s stay wonderful, and we are glad all out efforts are greatly appreciated! It’s so nice to see that all of our hard work is paying off our guests are having amazing vacations and enjoying our Bungalow. Thank you again for taking the time to write this review. It means a lot to us.
I would go back in a min...
The owners are very friendly love the location close to to the beach didn't have any problems finding food
Location was amazing. It was a little hard to find if you’re not familiar with the area. Pizza delivery had no problem finding. Just a couple blocks to the seawall and beach. No beach view but the back yard was so relaxing and tropical and fenced in, we didn’t need a view. 2 large full bathrooms was great to have. Decor was just beachy! We loved the comforts of home. Nice to have off street parking for a large car or mid size SUV. We really enjoyed our stay.
This house was completely adorable! The owner really thought of everything you could need, from coffee to extra towels to throw blankets. We were travelling with our puppy, and the little yard for her was a great benefit. Best of all, it was such a simple walk to the beach! I would absolutely book this property again.
This house is close to 3 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) Sunflower Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also just over 1 block to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood!
I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!
There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (3 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located just out from the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental. But if you don't want to rents them, we provide 8 bag chairs at the Blue Crab bungalow, that you can bring to the beach or use for whatever you would like during your stay.
Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Also entertainment is always just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)
