Family-Friendly Fun in the Sun
The bright and beachy great room is surrounded by large windows that fill the home with natural light. A huge, wraparound sofa sits on a sisal rug and faces the giant 65-inch flatscreen television. Driftwood-inspired accents and ocean-themed artwork add to the coastal style. Your whole family will love this comfy room for relaxing after a day at the beach or pool, or strolling along the Strand. Glass doors open out to the sun-drenched deck with views of the peaceful neighborhood. You’ll want to sip your coffee out here in the mornings or relax with a glass of wine while you wait for the burgers to be done for dinner.
The sparkling kitchen is bright white with stainless steel appliances. An L-shaped tiered island has bar seating for four people and plenty of counter space for preparing meals and snacks. A classic subway tile backsplash, vintage-inspired pendant lights, and tons of cabinet storage make this kitchen into a streamlined yet stylish workspace.
Three Bedrooms and Two Full Bathrooms
Just off the living area are two cheerful bedrooms. The first bedroom has a flexible mix of sleeping options— with a queen-size bed and two twin-over-twin built-in bunk beds. The attached full bathroom has a tub/shower combo. The second bedroom on this level is the master suite, complete with a king-size bed set against an antique headboard made from a 100-year old Galveston door. The ensuite master bathroom has a tub/shower combo. A convenient laundry nook is also attached to the master bedroom. A third bedroom on the ground level has two twin-size beds.
Joy in Jamaica Beach
Gather the whole family together in the evenings to prepare some juicy burgers or a fresh catch on the charcoal grill for dinner. The ground level of Sandy Bottom also has a large octagon picnic table, tons of beach lounge chairs, and an outdoor shower. The fully fenced-in yard makes it safe and stress-free for families with four-legged members or small children. When your crew is ready to hit the sand, the Jamaica Beach access point is a quick walk or drive down the lane. And the excitement of the Galveston Strand and Pleasure Pier is never far from your door.

The beach house was perfect for our girls weekend! Great open living room/kitchen for hanging out and super close to the beach! We had such a blast! Thank you!
Great clean family beach home!!!
It was an amazing stay I loved that the beach was 2 mins away across the beach house. This beach house was very nice and comfortable. Will definitely be staying there again!
Beautiful house! Chad is a fantastic host! He went above and beyond to accommodate us and make our stay comfortable. His prompt responsiveness was also greatly appreciated. Great value for a beautiful home!
Awesome stay! Everything was perfect!
Beautiful space, great price. If we had a suggestion to add we would note that it would have been nice to know the 3rd room (2 twin beds) is not connected to the rest of the house. Overall satisfied!
The place is beautiful just like the pictures an a nice location definitely worth the price an it’s not far from schlitterbahn an moody gardens an they pretty much provide everything you need for your stay would recommend an definitely going to come back in the summer
This place is absolutely perfect for a Jamaica Beach vacation. Super durable, kid and dog friendly. The outdoor shower is a very nice touch. If you're going down to the beach for the day with accoutrements, I would say you'll be driving. But a big plus is that you can drive onto the beach here. Everything was spot-on.
Great location, the house looked just like the pictures. Any questions I had were answered right away. Overall a very nice house and I really enjoyed my stay.
Cozy place, quiet neighborhood, great short Jamaica Beach vaca! Loved the fenced-in yard for our dog, the chill atmosphere and the cute, clean house. Super close to the State Park which we hiked completely and had a chill beach vibe away from the main seawall. Loved it!
