Please help me say "yes" to your request to stay in my home by first taking some time to fill out the message box with a brief reason for your stay and description of guests (family, friends ages etc.). As a potential host, I want to get a feel for who is asking to have access to my home when I'm not there, so I'm looking for reasons to trust you. An empty, brief, or vague message doesn't do that. Also, I don't permit big parties or gatherings, as I live in a residential neighborhood and my house does not accommodate those, so don't even contact me if that is your need. Thanks!

Jamaica Beach Retreat is a former fisherman's cottage that was a weekend vacation home until it was completely remodeled in 2006 and downstairs remodeled again in 2009 after IKE. I lived there full time until 2011, enjoying the peace and space of the beautiful West End of Galveston Island....

The Green House Near the Beach

The location was great Close to the beach. Loved the upper porch great place to watch Sunsets and just hang out with a beer and good cigar. There seemed to be constant breeze. The upstairs has a great Kitchen layout. It does have 4 bedrooms, with 1 upstairs was large, and the 3 down stairs are small but work for sleeping, and they could use a better AC setup. The only real complaint was with ants they seemed to be everywear. But that did not stop us from having a great week. The Dog run and ramp was neat. My little dog did not like going down the ramp but had no problem coming up. This house is a great near beach house for a family with several kids. The beach was just across the main road with a direct access, and was not crowded even on the weekend. Great for a early morning or late evening stoll.
Glad you had a great time. Thank you for your feedback. As for the ants, sorry about that, Galveston has alot of fire ants that make their homes outside in the most inconvenient places. Some years are worse than others. It seems that when I apple cider a mound, they move elsewhere! I try not to use harmful pesticides due to children and pets being exposed. Just bought a new ac unit for the downstairs, too!
Very family and pet friendly!

We stayed here with our family and a pet for a week and then ended up adding another day. The house was a perfect size. The only bummer is that the washer and dryer are not available for use and the laundymats close at 8! Just something to consider. Also, linens and towels are provided but if you're a bit picky like me you may want to bring rugs for the bed and shower. The floors are tiled so it can be a bit cool on your feet. The beach is just across the road with a fully stocked convenience store on the way. Overall, I would not hesitate to stay here again!

My husband and I stayed with 3 other couples for his 40th birthday weekend. We decided last minute to spend the weekend in Glaveston and Heidi was very easy to work with despite such short notice. The house was as described and it is a 5 minute walk to the beach. For being a pet friendly home I was impressed that there was absolutely no pet smell. The house was very clean and comfortable. The owner is easy to communicate with and we would reccomend to others.

Went on our annual family vacation and this is the first time we chose a beach house. Perfect setting for a family. The upstairs was beautiful and spacious. The downstairs was smaller and we mainly only slept there, but we enjoyed it. Loved the outdoor balcony set up. We probably spent most of our time there. Beach was only a 5 minute walk away. Owner was professional and easy to communicate with. Would recommend this place to anyone.

My family really enjoyed our vacation stay. The home was as advertised: kitchen was fully remodeled and we had plenty of room for the five of us to stretch out and relax. The only reason I'm not rating five stars is there wasn't a washer and dryer available for us to use which when staying five nights was inconvenient. Other than that, we'll definitely consider coming back again.

We had a blast. The house was wonderful. We really enjoyed sitting out on the porch drinking our coffee. It was very clean and very spacious. Within walking distance to the beach. We will definately rent again from Heidi.
Well, what can I tell you? My dogs and I love staying here. Their favorite place is the porch, with the dog ramp to their private fenced yard and lots of birds to watch! Fresh seafood to catch or buy nearby, fresh air, luxurious home with all the latest amenities, I could live here!
This is the best beach house. I came here with my husband and baby daughter. We walked to and played at the beach, ate at the local restaurant and hung out enjoying the fresh ocean breezes on the porch. My husband went deep sea fishing and came back with a big catch, which we grilled for dinner. Yummo. You will love staying here!
