this is a cute place. Very comfortable and very quiet. Took my wife and two kids and all of us had a blast there. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone. The hot was a relaxing feature plus down stairs had a cool breeze coming off the gulf that one could sit and relax for hours. Couldn't ask for anything better. The neighbors and other renters were very polite and had no problems anywhere. There is also a new community pool there that comes in handy when not wanting to get all dirty at that beach. The house is full of amenities, so no need to over pack. Which I did, oh well.. ha . Was grateful to also have a BBQ grill which was used very often.

Great Time at the Moby Dick

August 18, 2011

Was everything Janet said it would be. Janet met us on arrival and made sure we knew all about the house. Loved the decor. You do get a great breeze from the patio below. Beach access not too far. Safe area and nice neighbors. Will call again next year.

My family and I just spent the weekend in Galveston and had a wonderful time. This home on Jamaica Beach exceeded our expectations in every way. It was large, clean, well-equipped, and not far from the water. After spending the day on the almost secluded beach, we cooked on the gas grill on the deck. We had everything that we needed for a relaxed and fun vacation. We will go again, but next time we'll stay longer at this lovely home.

Our quick trip to Galveston was really great!!

August 1, 2011

We were desperate to get out of the heat of Central Texas. Little did we know that we had rented a vacation house as comfortable as our own home. It was clean and plenty big with several places to "hang out" while the cook did her thing. Really close to the beach. The air conditioner worked great. Plus, we could just let the dog out in the dog run or the totally fenced yard. There was plenty of shade for him. We are definitely going to rent this place again.... may not tell all our friends about this gem. Oh, the owner was very nice, very funny and very fair.

Wonderful Weekend!

July 27, 2011

Our weekend to Galveston was a last minute mini-vacation and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay! Moby Dick was perfect and nicer than I expected, being a last minute get-away. The yard is beautiful, the dog run was perfect for our son's dog, and the deck was a nice ending to our days. Everything we needed was already in the house and it made our trip easier than we anticipated. I spoke to Janet, one of the owners, prior to our trip, as well as after, and she was extremely helpful and very nice. This is definitely one house we will tell all of our friends about.

Fabulous beach house!

January 26, 2011

Fabulous beach house for our family vacation! Enjoyed all the amenities, as well as, the opportunity to bring our dog Tuffy. The dog area, breezeway below, the upper deck and being close to the beach were wonderful. We felt right at home. Will definitely refer our family and friends for their next vacation in Galveston. Thanks again! The Barnett's
