Hi, I'm Heidi!

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. I was a trial attorney for 20 years and now am a Special Education teacher in Oklahoma City area. Rather than sell my beloved beach house, I decided to rent it out so others could enjoy the awesome space. I love that you can see, smell and hear the ocean from the deck and if you get up early enough, you can see the sunrise over the ocean to the east, and then watch the sunsets from the deck to the west. Jamaica Beach is a wonderful community, that includes a restaurant, convenience stores, and hardware store 2 blocks from the house. You can easily walk to the beach, go fishing, go to the State Park, or go to the bay.
I hope you enjoy your stay at Jamaica Beach Retreat as much as I have!

The Green House Near the Beach

“ Excellent ”
July 20, 2013
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.
