Description of the Galveston vacation guesthouse rental
Pet friendly. Come relax and have fun on the beaches on Galveston Island's West End. Reserve your get-away with just a few simple clicks at this beautiful and artfully decorated downstairs one bedroom, one bath, fully furnished, privately fenced, guest quarters. Visit me on vacationhomes also

Although we do not boast a gulf view, the beach is close and on most days you hear the roar of the surf. Depending on the season the sky can be full of majestic pelicans and most everyday you'll find lazy seagulls and loud mouth grackles.

Jamaica Dream is located in The Village of Jamaica Beach on a secluded end of a dead end street within walking distance of the beach. It is ideally suited for families with very little car traffic making it safe for bicycle riding and walking.

A covered private patio is in the fenced yard and accessible by the back door. There are flower gardens and an outdoor shower and room for your dog to run.

Jamaica Dream is the ground floor of a duplex and is available when family or friends are not staying. I live upstairs with my three dogs and one cat who have their own yard. Other than their occasional barking and possibly passing us in the driveway you'll hardly know we're here.

We are a short walk to the beach, Baptist and Catholic churches, gift shops, hardware store, liquor store, bar, restaurant and convenience stores. Less than 3/4 mile west is a full grocery store. We are two blocks from city hall, the police station, fire department and EMS. This summer a public swimming pool was opened at the Jamaica Beach park.
Area Information
Jamaica Dream is located in The Village of Jamaica Beach on the West-end of Galveston Island about 10 miles west of Galveston City. Jamaica Beach is heavily policed and the streets are safe for walking and bike riding any day and night. There is a swimming pool, playground for the children, and a protected pavilion that can be rented for your event.

A short 4-block walk and you will be on the sand enjoying the beach. The beach is also open for vehicular traffic.

Must love dogs! The Village of Jamaica Beach is a very dog friendly little town. However, there is a leash law and dogs are not permitted to roam.

A nice area in the back of the neighborhood offers bank fishing where I have caught flounder, red fish, sand and speckled trout, croaker, gar and whiting. There is also a free boat launch with a short canal trip to access West Bay.

Perfect Rental

We stayed for a couple weeks with our dogs. It's was a perfect cottage for us to relax in with everything we needed- even a washer and dryer. The fenced in yard was perfect for our dogs and the whole place is dog-proof. It's a short walk to the beach. Clean and cute!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Tiffany. I am very happy you guys stayed and wish you much success in Texas. Please come back any time.

Misty Eary Sielaff

Riesel, TX

Another wonderful stay!

This was our second stay at the Jamaica Dream and it was as enjoyable as our first! As usual, Donna was a gracious host and we couldn't ask for more. The Jamaica Dream is in an ideal location for my family...close to the beach for fun and close to the bay for fishing. We also love the fact that we can bring our dogs with us and they feel just as at home as we do. We will be back again! Thanks, Donna!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Misty! It was very nice seeing you and your family again. And I'm so glad y'all were able to land some fish and the monster sting ray. Please come back any time, y'all are always welcome.

Fabiana Nye

Cozy retreat

We enjoyed every single minute of our stay at Jamaica Dream and can't wait to go back. The house is very cute, perfect for a small family, and very close to the beach. If you are looking for a cozy retreat you won't be dissapointed.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Fabiana. I look forward to seeing you guy's again.

Relaxing escape

Our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. We were able to slow down our fast-paced lives for a few days and just enjoy ourselves. The home was super cute and very comfortable. We cooked several full meals while we were there and the kitchen was perfect. It was also great for us to be able to include our two 4-legged buddies with us. Thanks Donna for providing such a nice place for us to escape!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you for coming and for the nice review. It was very nice meeting you and your family and know you are welcome back anytime.

casual comfort at its finest

This is my 6th stay and i most certainly plan to go back. Such a gem of a place snuggled onto a quiet, friendly community. Donna, the owner, has always been warm and inviting. So convenient, reasonable and relaxing.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you! I absolutely love it when you guys come visit. I brings me so much pleasure to see how the kids have grown and changed during the year. Please know y'all are always welcome.

Relaxing place to stay.

Great place to stay. Perfect for a couple and our dog. We were able to keep the back door open to garden and our dog was able to go in and out at her leisure.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you! I hope to see y'all and Maggie again.

Doronda Sykes

Harrah, Oklahoma


We had the very best stay ever. The house was perfect. What a wonderful lil hideaway even from the noise of Seawall, to the busy streets of Galveston, this house was perfect hideaway to get away from it ALL! We loved every detail. Donna was awesome and such a sweet lovely person. We are already looking forward to next year for a trip back! Thank you Donna! We loved every single thing! Love your dogs and kitty too! Thank you! Ron and Doronda Sykes!!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for the lovely review and compliment. I hope you guys come again as you are more than welcome. Maybe next visit you can bring your pups. I look forward to see y'all agaon.

Jamaica Palms

This was our first visit to Jamaica Palms and it was fantastic. This is a cozy retreat perfect for a quiet getaway. The beach was within walking distance, and the property is away from the hustle and bustle of the seawall but within a short drive if you want to go. We took our grandson and our two small dogs and had a great time. Donna was extremely friendly and had it ready for us even though our stay was a last minute decision. Our Grandson was even invited to the neighborhood Easter Party and had a blast. We will most definitely be back!! GREAT PLACE TO STAY!! Thank -you Donna!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

You are very welcome. Thank you for the wonderful review, I'm very happy y'all enjoyed your stay. You are more than welcome to come back, I look forward to seeing you again.

Great minit-vacations

My parents live abroad and they visited me recently in Houston. I decided took them to Galveston for a quiet get away. They enjoyed their stay very much - the place was excellent: calm, relaxing and touched with coastal charm. Donna was an outstanding helpful host. They enjoyed their visit a lot and hope to come back sometime! Thank you Donna!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

I just loved your parents. I wish I knew their language though, but we had fun communicating with each other through sign language. You guys are more than welcome to come back anytime. Thank you so much!

Can we live here?!

Had such an amazing stay at Donna's cozy Jamaica Dream. Mornings on the hammock with coffee in the lush backyard was great, especially since our pooch was able to be with us! Just a short distance to the beach and away from all the hustle and bustle of Galveston by the pier. Definitely the perfect way to go when vacationing on the gulf! We had a great time and can't wait to plan our next trip :) Can we live here haha?! Thanks so much for everything Donna, it was a much needed relaxing and perfect getaway for us city folk!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for the kinds words. Y'all were great guests and very glad that you enjoyed yourselves. You guys and your furbaby are most welcome to come again, I look forward to it.

Jan Swann

Love the Little Cozy Cottage

We found this little jewel of a cottage and close beach three years ago and stayed again just a couple weeks ago. It was just as comfortable and clean. Jamaica beach is lovely and quiet but still only 20 minutes or so away from all the activities of the Seawall. The owner, Donna, is delightful and makes you feel instantly at home. We will be back again for sure!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Jan. You guys are more than welcome anytime. I look forward to seeing you again.

Jamaica Dream our Secret Oasis

This place is even nicer than the pictures. We came several years ago and when we returend this time I was amazed that it looked exactly as beautiful as before. Perfectly maintained and immaculately clean. Jamaica Dream has the quality of a 4 star resort and the charm of a Select Registry Bed and Breakfast. It is quiet and secluded, but just mintues from all the action on the Island and walking distance to the beach. This is our secret oasis. Love the hammock on the patio and the private fenced in yard for the doggies. We already have out next trip to paradise scheduled.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Oh thank you Joan. I love it when you and Tubie and your babies come to visit. Look forward to seeing you real soon and hopefully doing a little fishing. You guys are very welcome to visit anytime.

Scott Sterrantino

Frisco, TX

Wonderful place

The cottage is a perfect getaway. Beautiful setting with a great fenced in yard. Great neighborhood convenient to the Galveston seawall but far enough away to be away from the hustle. Donna is an obvious dog lover and very understanding / accommodating.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Scott, it was so nice meeting you and your family. I really hope you guys make it back down again.

Our 3rd Wonderful Stay

We love this place for its simplicity, quietness, and convenience to the beach. It's owner, Donna, is a lovely person. Very kind and helpful. She loves dogs and so we have always taken ours. The cottage has a small patio that looks to a fenced area with grass, flowers, and bushes. We sit on the patio and our dog loves to sniff around the grass and flowers. So it works all the way around. Because of the heat of the day during this June visit, we'd go to the beach with our dog in the early mornings or late evenings. Donna also has a hose just outside the cottage that one can use to clean up a sandy and dirty dog and that helps to make this an ideal and comfortable place to enjoy Galveston with one's best friend. This time, we sat on the patio for hours during the day, early mornings, and evenings, as there were gentle breezes that seemed so pleasant in the hot days of June. On previous visits, we have borrowed Donna's barbecue and large outdoor table and invited friends to spend an evening with us, and we all sat on the patio and had a lovely meal together under the stars. So lots of enjoyable and relaxing things to enjoy at the Jamaica Dream.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Dorothy! It is always nice having you, John and Alfie visit. You guys are always more than welcome to say. Thanks again.

Linda and Gary Johnson

Spring Valley, MN


We very much enjoyed the week. Donna, her family and neighbors are most friendly and gracious. We Norwegians from Minnesota were thrilled to be invited and had a great time at the neighborhood gathering featuring boiled crawdads, grilled lobster and shrimp. The guest house is very clean and pleasant and provided everything one could want. If conditions allow we would like to return, possiibly in December or again next Spring.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Linda and Gary, for staying at Jamaica Dream and for this very nice review. We all did have a good time that day and the weather pretty much cooperated. Of course when guests arrive all the way from snowy Minnesota we have record low temperatures. Hope you guys get to come back down, I really look forward to visiting with you again. Stay warm.

Vacation just as we pictured it

The guesthouse is accurately described on the web-site. My husband and I, and our two dogs spent a very relaxing week in Jamaica Dream. Donna, the owner, is a very nice and helpful person. She lives upstairs, but the guesthouse is very private, and we felt that we had a piece of paradise for ourselves. What we liked the most is that the house is very comfortable and tastefully decorated, the garden is beautiful and lovingly taken care of, and yet everything was sturdy, so we did not need to worry that a dog can ruin something. The beach is only a couple of minutes away walking. I actually prefer this location to the ocean-front because we had several very stormy days, and it was much more comfortable to be a bit farer from the storm. We liked is so much that we are planning to be back in November.

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank for so much for the very thoughtful review. I cannot wait for you and your little family to come again. I love that the dogs can just be dogs at the beach.

Paradise in Jamaica Beach

My Hubby and I got to spend Jan. with our two Scotties, at the most amazing Jamaica Dream! The only bad part was having to leave. Donna, the owner, made us feel right at home. I felt like we had known her forever! Very sweet person! She kept the cottage spotless. Millie and Mazie loved the fenced yard. We loved all the beautiful plants, roses, and the sound of the ocean waves. Jamaica Beach is very quiet and neighbors are very friendly. Walking on the beach, a Police officer even stopped and gave me a very pretty little shell! The cottage is decorated so pretty and is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. The bed was very comfy and was nice to have the washer & dryer. We loved everything and would not change anything! The kitchen has everything you might need. We hope to come back someday. We miss Jamaica Dream and Donna! Thank You for taking such good care of us!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

I miss you guys and think of you everyday. Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I cannot wait to see y'all again. Please keep in touch. Y'all were the best guests!

We will be back!

If you need a comfortable and adorable place to stay with your pooches, this is it! We had a wonderful time. The apartment and the back yard garden is so just too cute. But you have to book ahead. It's just this one apartment!

Thank you Birgit =)

Fabulous Place

This was our first stay at Jamaica Dream but it won't be out last. Fabulous place...exactly as described...maybe better. Everything you need is right there and available. Thank yo Donna for everything. We really didn't want to leave. We will be back and I have recommended it to several friends already and will continue to do so. Sasha and Lucy just loved the little back yard and enjoyed smelling all of your fabulous plants. Thanks again. Thanks again... Dale, Pam, Sasha and Lucy

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much, Pam, for the kind words. Your dogs were very well behaved and I look forward to seeing Sasha and Lucy, and you and Dale again. Return visits get a 10% discount plus an extra 5% discount for any referrals that book. Thanks again.

A Dream Come True!

First time to stay at Jamaica Dream--fantastic experience! Beautiful decor, quiet atmosphere, and Donna is a gem! Our two dogs loved being with us, too. (Thanks for being flexible, Donna!) I highly recommend this guest house if you want a quiet getaway, with an option to bring your dog. It really is a dream come true!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Michelle. My dogs love it when their 4-legged friends visit. Very happy your stay was a good one and hope to see you again.

Aly Ogle

Originaly from Alaska, now from College Station..Whoop!

5 Stars as USUAL!!! :=D

Once again we had an awesome time at Jamaica Dream. I would like to say it was our 4th but maybe 5th? time to visit? You know it is like home when you can't remember, except that you want to go back ASAP!! Atmosphere, colors, layout, ammenities, JD has it all. Donna is more a friend now besides being an excellent hostess. The accommodations have ALWAYS been perfect, and everytime we go, there is a new "little something" that we notice, making our stay even better. I have a hectic demanding job and relaxing here is a given. My Old English, LLahso Apso, sister, daughter and myself had a great time this last visit celebrating my daughters college graduation. We have come to love the laid back quality of the village as well as discover a new restaurant, shopping spot, beach place, everytime we come. I am so thankful we found Jamaica Dream and Donna. After writing this, I am booking another stay in October....just a heads up Donna!!! :) Would refer and have referred to families, couples, singles, et al. We could all use a "Jamaica Dream"

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you for this wonderful review. Please know you and your dogs are always welcome. It is very rewarding to get positive feedback and that my number one goal of creating a stress free and relaxing environment for my guests is a reality. Truly look forward to seeing y'all again.

Am I Dreaming?

This beach house was truly a dream getaway! Donna could not be a better host. She was there to greet us and show us around her lovely place. Gave great suggestions on places to go & things to see. It was so nice to see a place so equipped with so many things. So many times I have stayed at a beach house and forget something & have to improvise with something else. She has everything you could possibly need and more! You can tell there was a lot of thought put into this place and its very well maintained! I wish we could have stayed longer! Looking forward to future visits!

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you Jane. I'm glad y'all enjoyed your stay. I look forward to seeing you again.

great little gem

We stayed here for 5 days and Donna had made it unforgettable! We definitely like to come back here. It's exactly like the pics show and immaculately clean throughout. Everything you need is there and the whole place breathes her hospitality. Our two dogs felt right at home as well. Wonderful little place! Jamaica Beach is about 11 miles to Galvaston, so not much of a commute if you seek some action from this restful and relaxing jewel.Thank you Donna! X Chuck & El

Donna Gideon

Owner's reply:

Thank you El and Chuck! You were perfect guests and I hope to see you again.

Great Vacation

This was our second stay at the Jamaica Dream cottage and it was just as wonderful as we remembered. Donna added a few improvements (not that there was much to improve upon). We had everything we needed to have a magical stay. We were so happy to arrive and so sad to leave. We will be back as soon as possible.

This was a great place to stay at. My husband, I, and my three dogs enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very colorful, decorated well, and very "comfy". It was a nice place to stay at to get away for a weekend vacation.



Great place!

my daughter and I stayed for the first week of august. Although it was hot, Donna did every thing she could to make us comfortable. She also took us on a special trip where my daughter had a fabulous time. Donna is an Excellent host!

Jamaica Dream - a Great place to stay!

Our family really enjoyed staying at the Jamaica Dream. It was nice to stay at a place where the family lived above us, but we rarely ever saw them. Also, it was nice to have our own driveway and that we weren't that far from San Luis Pass and well away from the City of Galveston.

Jamaica Dream is a MUST STAY

I stayed here with my family, and our family pet, this place is amazing, Donna the host is a great person!! WE came from SD and whatever we did not have she did for us to use!! We will be going back in a few years and will book this place. This house is decorated so nice and all around a fun and awesome place to stay. People of Galveston are also very nice and as well as Jamaica Beach. Problem we had was we brought too many cloths, there is a washer & dryer that work so good you don't need to bring alot!! Thanks Donna!! Terry, Larrianna, Cody, Samantha & Scoobie While

Slice of Paradise

This truly, is a slice of paradise. A wonderful backyard, with hammock, beautiful flowers, & you can even hear the ocean waves crashing on the shore, even though you're two blocks away. She provides everything you need for you stay (dishes, pots/pans etc.) as well as boogie board, chairs for the beach, & a golf cart to get you there. We will definitely be going back! She is very hospitality & the neighborhood is very friendly as well. My husband, I & our little schnoodle really enjoyed ourselves :)

Wonderful Get Away

This cottage was perfect for a long week end get away after Christmas. My dogs had their own garden and I really enjoyed not having to walk them several times a day. It was well equiped and so comfortabel. The dogs and I will be back!

Martha Lackritz

Austin, TX

even more charming than the photos!

I stayed here in the winter with dog and boyfriend in tow. The owner is wonderfully sweet and accommodating, the house is spotless and tastefully decorated with all the amenities you could possibly need. Beach is two blocks away, and the house itself has a fenced garden with a hammock and flowers blooming even in the middle of the winter. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Love Jamaica Dream

This was our second trip to Galveston, both times staying at Jamaica Dream. Each stay was wonderful. This past trip, the weather was perfect - warm enough to get in the water but cool enough to relax on the beach all day. Jamaica Dream is a spacious one bedroom with a small kitchen and is located on the west end of galveston. It's a little bit of a drive to the "action" of galveston, but on the beach its super quiet. Both trips we've practically had the beach to ourselves! Donna is a wonderful host - she made sure we had everything we needed. This trip she had also made a new purchase - a golf cart for guests to use to get to the beach (it's only 4 blocks). Last time we walked, which wasn't far but it was so nice not having to carry all of our stuff this time. Highly recommended and worth the drive!!

absolutely wonderfully relaxing

My husband and I stayed here for his r&r and had the best getaway. the rental home is beautiful and the beaches were so relaxing! We even brought our dog and had plenty of room and no worries for him. i definitely recommend this home for anyone visiting galveston.


Dallas, TX

A hidden gem

What an amazing vacation! We stayed last weekend with our labrador and had the most fantastic time. The house was exactly as the pictures showed and Donna couldn't have been nicer. We grilled, swam and laid in the hammock listening to the waves for a wonderful long weekend we will never forget. We will definitely be back!


Austin, TX

Tranquil and Sun-filled Cottage!

I stayed here with my boyfriend over the weekend and couldn't have asked for better accommodations! The cottage is clean, unique and well-equipped, the beach is a short walk away, and Donna was great! I hope I get the chance to stay here again!

C. Beene

Tyler, Texas


I loved it! It was very clean and well taken care of. It was very quiet and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Galveston, which was perfect, but only a 5 minute drive to Galveston. Donna was very sweet. I will definatly go back!

Janan Huffaker

Keller Texas


Jamacia Beach Cottage is a very lovely beach house, beach is close and Donna was great and even let us use her beach chairs and air mattress. The futon is comfortable and the bed is very comfortable, loved the bathroom and the porch and fenced in yard, I will definitly be back, I want to live here!


Austin, TX USA

Wonderful . . .

We would like to go back and live there. It was a wonderful experience. A lovely small cottage, with a lovely little fenced back yard with a hammock that the two granddaughters fought over. Nice, new stove, refrigerator, bathroom fixtures. Small, yet functional. Beachy colors and ambience. The landlady (Donna) is nice and laid back. we will be back!

A Dream Come True

My new husband and I had a great time staying at Jamaica Dream on our honeymoon. It was a great location and within perfect walking distance to the beach. We couldn't have asked for more!

So Comfortable

Love this place! Just about the time you realize you need something, there it is! Truly, Donna has this cottage set up with creature comforts beyond what you'd expect. She is quite flexible, there if you need her, but otherwise the place is your home away from home. I took 3 teens down and could let them explore & bike around the neighborhood safely, and the beach.......just a stone's throw across the street. Prices being comparable or less than a motel, it's a total no brainer. The place is immaculate, easy pull out sofabed plus a darling designated private bedroom, big bathroom with laundry, even a hammock & swing in a cute fenced yard. It's a complete vacation package. Go for it!

Great place, great people.

It was wonderful, we were traveling with a dog and it was perfect for him, he loved the little yard. Very nice, clean peaceful spot. Donna was very nice as were her neighbors. We loved it and if ever we returned to Galveston would try to rent here again.


Dallas, TX


My husband and I stayed here at the end of February and it was so much more than I had thought it would be. It has a perfect sized yard so we were able to bring our two dogs with us and they also had a blast. Outside of downtown, it was quiet and so peaceful. Just a few minutes walk to the beach (less than 5min) and a short drive to nearby dining options (although we didn't eat out- we used the kitchen at the cottage). We plan on staying here every time we visit Galveston now. It was so much better than just a hotel room. Perfect getaway for the family!

A Beautiful Romantic Cottage

My boyfriend and I went for Christmas weekend. The pictures are exactly what it looks like, and it is the cutiest, most romantic little cottage ever. We spent most of our time out on the porch looking at the gated garden surronding us.I recommend this place to all couples who are in love.


Austin, TX


We loved jamaice dream. Donna was wonderful and very accomadating. The place is beautiful, relaxing. we had a family of 5 and we still fit okay and prepared an entire thanksgiving dinner. It was clean and well maintained, close to the beach, park and a short drive to galveston. We will definately be back in the summer. Thanks Donna.
