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!

Clean, Close to Beaches, Great Space

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family! We brought kids, aunts, grandparents and had plenty of room. The split floor plan (2 bedrooms on each side) allowed for space and a great central area to play games and enjoy time together. The covered porch was perfect since we encountered some bad weather so we'd sit outside and watch the storm.

The beach was a close walk through a small path on the sand dune, so even my kids (11/14yo) could run back and forth to the house to grab something if we forgot or just wanted a snack. The neighborhood was relatively quiet and there was plenty of paved parking which is a plus. Also the little store across the street was handy for all the odds and ends we needed. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked and we prepared 3 meals a day for 10 ppl there with no problem which helped save a ton of $!

Comfort, charm and plenty of space to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 20 people rented 3 beach homes for our annual gathering, and my family and my mother-in-law very much enjoyed having the Seahorse as our home for the week. It uses its space very well and we all enjoyed the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and the kitchen/dining/den/deck area was well-suited for all 20 on our 2 evenings to host the nightly meal. The home is cheerfully decorated and well-kept. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Cheryl!
