The space

The house has been totally renovated this spring. Included in the renovations are new beds, new sofas, new carpeting and a fresh paint job. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms each have a queen sized bed with a television with one of the bedrooms also has a trundle bed. This allows 8 people to sleep comfortably. Linens for the beds are provided, along with towels for the bathrooms at no extra charge. There is a full size washer and dryer to use for your convenience. There is a new television in the living room, with a big comfortable couch to unwind on after a long relaxing day. The kitchen has all you would ever need to make a delicious dinner. You can cook the fish or crabs you caught right out on the canal!

Since this is a canal home, we have a deck downstairs with a boat dock. Feel free to bring your own boat when you stay. Cruising through the canals is an experience you don’t want to miss. You can also fish straight off the dock; we have an underwater light installed just for that purpose. There is a wide variety of fish that swim through our canals in Jamaica beach. A cleaning station on the dock allows you to clean your catch right outside a few feet from where you are fishing! If you do not have a fishing pole, don’t worry we have some you can use.

We also have a crab trap available for setting up right off the dock. When you catch them, you can cook them with the big crab boiling pot up in the kitchen. We have a grill as well, for outdoor cooking.

There is a ladder on the dock so you can swim right in the canal if you fancy.
Four bicycles and two kayaks and a hammock are there for your enjoyment.

Jamaica Beach is the neighboring subdivision next to the State Park. The local police force, fire department and EMS gives you peace of mind, with the police around the clock patrolling of the area.

Galveston is just down the road with all of its’ famous attractions. Schlitterbahn has its’ indoor water park open year-round. Moody Garden has its’ aquarium, IMAX theater, and other fun family attractions. There are museums scattered throughout the island including a flight museum. The Pleasure Pier is an amusement park and restaurants over the Gulf of Mexico.
Come stay with us. You will want to come back for more fun and relaxation away from the everyday hustle of life.

The Jamaica Beach City Park with a wonderful swimming pool is just a few blocks away. We have beach access that you can drive your car right on the sand.

We stayed at the canal house over Thanksgiving weekend. Nancy was flexible and allowed us in early which was great for putting together the Thanksgiving meal. We found the house comfortable for our group of three couples and two dogs although there was sometimes a line for one of the two bathrooms. There was plenty of room for us on the deck or patio dockside; with more people the living room would have been tight. The table with 4 chairs was a bit awkward for Thanksgiving after we pulled in the two deck chairs (which sat low) but was doable. The recent remodel gave a great look to the place and the beds and linens were great. The kitchen has plenty of cooking pieces but needs more dishes and serving pieces for larger groups. In the evenings we enjoyed the fire ring—there’s something about sitting around a fire! We did a couple of bike rides around the neighborhood but never did use the kayaks. The guys went fishing in the morning and evenings along with baiting the crab pots but never accomplished more than entertaining themselves. The neighborhood was quiet, the vibe was relaxing. My only real complaint is that the house is not a good value and I would look elsewhere for our next visit.

Very clean, awsome location. Had a blast the few hours spent at the house fishing off the back deck.

Our niece and nephew traveled down to visit for a week. We took a long weekend in Galveston and had a great time. The house was clean and very well stocked with all necessary equipment. A total bonus were the bikes, kayaks and the fishing equipment. The deck was awesome to sit and watch the area "wake-up" in the morning and then look at the millions of stars at night. Overall a very nice place and would definitely come back again.

Nancy was a great host! She was super responsive and answered all our questions quickly. Her home was lovely! It was right on the canal, has a master with a full bath downstairs and two guest rooms upstairs that share a full bath. The upstairs bedrooms have four beds total. One room with a queen and the other has a full (maybe a queen?) and a twin trundle bed. The master and the trundle room have their own private decks! The house was very clean, including towels, sheets and blankets. She even gave us access to her "toy shed" full of bikes, a grill, crabbing gear , fishing poles and two kayaks!! We used everything but the bikes and it made our trip extra special! It wouldn't have been the same to stay at a house without it! She saved us a lot of time from needing to find rental gear or bringing our own! The neighborhood was nice and quiet. It was just perfect all the way down to dinner on her deck overlooking the canal and watching the sunset. Thanks, Nancy!!

This house was great. Made you feel like you were right at home. Very comfortable. Very clean and nice. Lots of extras Kayaks, bikes, fishing poles, crab traps,beach chairs, sand toys, and washer and dryers. The under ground lighting for fishing was awesome. One and only complaint would be needs bigger frying pans had to use 3 little ones every meal. But it worked. Would stay here again. Best house we stayed in durning our trip to Jamicia Beach. Stayed in 3 houses durning our vacation here.

What a perfect spot. This was the first time I have used Airbnb & didn't know what to expect. If this is what it's all about, I will never use another booking site. Everything was exactly as described & exactly what we needed!
