ABOUT OUR LOCATION: Our home, "Seas The Day" is the ultimate canal home in the premier West End community of Jamaica Beach. The location gives it the added benefit of having a breeze on the large covered deck no matter which direction the breeze flows. There is a fan on the deck to insure the air keeps moving to add to your comfort level. We are on a corner canal, If you have a boat,or toys, launch them just across the canal at the marina and tie up in our covered boat slip during your stay. We have lots of open space around us, across are vacant lots and on the one side next to us is a vacant lot, and we are at the end of cul de sac, so plenty of privacy, Sunrise is awesome view, and don't miss the gorgeous bay sunset simply by turning your chair around. The beach is less than a mile from our home. You can load up your vehicle and in Texas, are allowed to park on the beach. Or take the golf cart, equipped with fishing pole holders and a cooler. A bird sanctuary is just off Bob Smith Drive.... more open space! There is a side yard with grass for playing games.

TOYS: If you like the water, there are boogie boards, paddle boards, and surf board, as well as kayaks for your use. Two fishing poles with some fishing gear included. Pole holders on the railings make fishing easy.

About Jeannine

Our family purchased this home early spring of 2015. Children and Grandchildren have enjoyed the water toys, and we love the views and openness of the area. Quiet friendly neighborhood has proven to be a real plus.

We own a place in Breckenridge, CO for the winter sports enthusiasts and now the beach property gives us year round family fun.

Set up for a family to enjoy...... we want you to be comfortable, have enough toys for you to have fun, and have a memorable vacation.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Jeannine purchased this house in 2015

Why Jeannine chose Galveston

When you are purchasing a property for family fun..... everyone has their preferences.... must be on the water, must be able to fish from deck, must have kayaks to go out to bay, must have boards for going to the gulf, must be safe for small children, must have must have.......... we think we met everyone's needs. Hope your family enjoys it as well. Let us know what else we need..... we plan to add more!!!

What makes this house unique

Fenced area, gates with ability to lock..... we want to help parents keep their children are safe and secure while enjoying all our place has to offer.

Being in the location we are, we get the breeze from almost every when you want to enjoy the deck. We have Pub Height tables so you are looking 'over' the railing.... not through the railings. so much to see...........

Because our living area and deck are on the open sides of the canals, you have a nice amount of privacy and openness.

With the home almost surrounded by canals, you can consider your play area or yard is endless!

Fun Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Nice hangout. Nice decor, great air conditioner. Nice cart, but kids said it wouldn't go far without weakening battery. TV pic couldn't adjust. Too blown up picture. Nice corner spot. May need more workable rods & reels. Boats need ropes to tie in place to load & unload.

Owner's Response: Anyone using golf cart, reading directions, tells you must be plugged in correctly to charge. Could have been problem. Next guest fixed the TV....YAY.... 60" screen is now again a proper pix. Rods and reels.....help us by telling us what to fix. We got ropes to tie up boat....thanks for suggestion. Always call or text with questions or concerns.... we provide two numbers - available 24/7. Makes me sad when guests leave with any disappointment when it could have easily been fixed while they were there.

Cute little bungalow. Perfect for a small family beach vacation.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxed stay at the beach this is the place. Jamaica Beach is just far enough away from busy Galveston that you get a true beach vacation with fewer people and then can hit all the attractions later. The house itself was super cute with great decor. Everything you could possibly want /need in the kitchen was there, even a fondue set! The beds were comfy and the baths were updated. The golf cart was a great addition and so convenient for exploring the neighborhood and getting to the beach. The canals were great to kayak in and so easy, just drop the boats and go! The two double kayaks were uncomfortable with not much support for long trips but worked with four people for a quick ride. The "paddle board" was not a paddle board so disappointed with that. The washer/dryer was out of order so majorly disappointed with that, truly one of the reasons we rented the house🙁 Overall we enjoyed our stay. I would suggest getting all of the locks keyed the same to cut down on the number of keys that you have to keep track of, very nerve racking trying to keep track of all of them.
