About Andy Bergman

Andy and I met at Second Baptist and got married last year and wanted a place to make memories with our family so we decided to buy in Galveston. We chose Jamaica Beach because of its neighborly feel and beautiful homes plus the community center and pool.

Andy Bergman purchased this house in 2016

Why Andy Bergman chose Jamaica Beach

We chose this home because we fell in love with the views and the inside! This home was immaculate and has a chef's kitchen. I love to cook so this was important to me!!

What makes this house unique

Bring your pet! A fenced in backyard awaits your dog or cat.

Great place to get away!

Loved the house, it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The owners texted during my stay to make sure everything was OK. Will book again in future. Highly recommended.

Island time is The BOMB!

  • 5 of 5

Jamaica Joy is so easy to find and sooo hard to leave. Just take Interstate 45 from Houston to Galveston, right turn at 61st Street, another right turn at the seawall, about 10 miles WSW, and you're in the coolest little beach community on the Gulf.

The house itself is a jewel. Three bedrooms, a bath and a half, a full size fully equipped kitchen and lovely living room. There's hardwood floors throughout, satellite TV, WiFi, and a large deck facing the sunrise. Downstairs is an expansive, fenced back yard with an outdoor shower, a fire ring and a gas grill on the patio.

And, all this is literally walking distance to the Gulf of Mexico, The BEACH! Miles and miles of beach.

So, get on down to Jamaica Joy and see the little bit of Heaven offered by Vicky and Andy. And, you better hurry, because we're going back again and again, and soon.

Enjoyed our stay and was so glad to be able to bring our fur babies with us.

  • 3 of 5

The house was homey and the location was nice. The kitchen was well equipped for us to cook meals. We don't travel much because we don't board our doggies so we were very happy they could come, too. They had a great time at the beach. Thank you for the wine and snacks. Overall our stay was very nice. Thank you.

Just a maintenance note: Both latches on the gate are broken. We rigged the top latch so it would stay closed but it needs to be fixed properly. The bottom latch has broken free of its concrete footing and needs to be repaired, also. The yard was boggy and the mosquitos were terrible -- perhaps due to standing water from Harvey? We had to do some minor cleaning upon arrival. The kitchen counters were dirty and the half bath was not clean.

Owner's Response: Good Afternoon Rozanne, thank you for the feedback. We take great pride in our home and as I am sure you know it is consistently ranked as one of the top in Galveston. One of the reasons for this is because we try to immediately handle any issues that are brought to our attention. We are sorry that we did not know about the gate latch issue while you were there because we have someone on 24/7 standby to fix these type of things!! Once we got your note we immediately got it fixed. We have also shared your feedback with our cleaning company - they take great pride in their work and I do not expect this to happen again. Regarding the pesky mosquitos, it is possible that high tide occurred during your visit causing some standing water around the area - Jamaica Beach does routinely spray for mosquitos - again this is not a typical occurance and is the first time we have heard about this condition. We understand your love for your pets and feel the same way that you do about having them with us on vacation. It is our sincere hope that these issues did not ruin your time with us in Galveston and that you will come visit the island again real soon. Sincerely, Andy and Vicky Bergman

This was a 5 star vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so clean and furnished with anything you may want. We enjoyed the comfortable and color full front deck. I only wish we could have spent more time there. We spent a lot of time at the beach and loved it. It is a truly wonderful place to spend a few days. I am so glad we found it on VRBO...Janelle giblin

wonderful weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Galveston to see my sister and brother in law with my parents who are 80+ in years and this beachhouse was so very comfortable for all of us. This beachhouse is fully equipped with everything you need. It felt like home. It is beautifully decorated and very clean. Plenty of comforatable chairs. The mattresses were very comfortable. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and clean. Marina right at end of the street. The owners are very attentive and call right back if you have a question. I will be quick to rent this beachhouse again my next trip to Galveston.
