Overview

About the property

Beach-side, 2nd Row, 4 bedrooms, Beautiful Ocean Views

The "Seahorse" Beach house will check off all the boxes on your wish list.

* Location: We are beach-side, 2nd row, steps from the beach.

* Views: While sitting on the deck you will enjoy beautiful views of the ocean

*Accommodations: 4 bedrooms, Sleeps 11 (everyone gets a bed). 3 TVs HBO and WiFi. Split floor plan, 2 bdrm, 1 bath on one side, and 2 bdrm, 1 bath on the other side. Great for 2 families and provides privacy. Plenty of paved parking!

Jamaica Beach is centrally located on Galveston Island, 11 miles from 61st, this community has it's own grocery store, bar, restaurants, etc. We are just 14 minutes from Moody Gardens (featuring an aquarium, golf course/zip lines, etc.); the Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Lonestar Flight Museum, and many other popular beaches. Rick's Beach Rentals is just 4 miles down the road, you can rent kayaks, bicycles, surf boards, golf carts, etc.

Head into town to one of the piers: Pier 21, Pleasure Pier (thrill rides, midway, restaurants, etc.), or the 61st Fishing Pier. Visit the downtown area, The Strand, for restaurants, lots of shopping, festivals, etc.

Remember to check out the Grand 1894 Opera House, they have some fantastic performers and shows. See the calendar at www.thegrand.com

* Jamaica Beach Community Pool, just minutes away, $5 ea.

The thing I like best about the location of the "Seahorse" is that you are on a street that does not indicate to the public "Beach Access". Therefore mainly our small community uses this beach. This makes it very nice for families. But hey, if you want the loud party beaches they are just a few miles down the road. Enjoy!

SO GOOD WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE

  • 5 of 5

This rental was so comfortably arranged. Fully equipped and arranged in a way that made you feel like you were in your own home. Cheryl, the owner, was very accommodating. I can't wait to return to this perfect home away cabin. Would highly recommend it for family vacations.

Nice Thanksgiving stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

The home had some recent paint and updates which were nice. The home was clean and fit our needs well. We packed in 7 adults and three small children. The home was clean and the kitchen well stocked. We enjoyed the easy walk to the beach and used the shower to clean up upon returning. The balcony worked great and we were able to play in the yard as well. A good reasonably priced stay and Cheryl was very responsive to all requests.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend so much!! Everything was perfect at this house. The beach was so close and never crowded. We had guest over one day and it was easy to entertain downstairs. The house was cozy yet so spacious we never felt crowded. The cable and WiFi was a plus for the teenagers. We had a few questions for the renter over the weekend and she responded right away. Can't wait to plan another vacation here !

We had a great time! Will love to stay in this house again in the future!

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in a very safe area since it is near the police station and fire station. The beach is just a few steps away. The house itself is a good place to stay for a family vacation. It is clean and neat with some common household supplies ready and available to use in case you forgot to bring and planned to buy later while on stay. There are also some kitchen paraphernalias ready and available to be used. Centralized aircon works excellent as well. There is only one very minor concern during our stay, the food compartment of the refrigerator doesn't cool well but it didn't spoil our stored food either. The freezer/icemaker compartment is working good.

Overall, the house is highly recommended to future renter/occupants and of course has been endorsed to my friends in case they have plans to have a vacation in Galveston area.
