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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Jamaica Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
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!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
