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.

Great place away from it all. You get to feel like your living in the Jamaica Beach community, and Galveston is only a few miles down the road. It's the kind of place I wish I lived, will be back again!
Great location. Easy to find. I loved the stylish decor. Plenty of room for larger groups. Had everything we needed. Will stay again!!!
Great place to stay. Lots of beds for a larger family. Short walk to the beach so the location was great. Overall, a nice, well maintained home.
This house is perfect for a family or group of folks. The living space is excellent and the layout is great!
Great comfortable place for a larger group. Beds were very comfortable.
Beautiful home with a nice back yard. We enjoyed staying here very much.
Like the decorations and theme a lot. Locations is convenient to get to and close to the beach. Host was very responsive to messages and requests.
Chad has a very nice beach house. We enjoyed our stay of 8 people and were very comfortable. Amenities made the 3 nights extremely live-able. The WiFi is really good too, not something you usually can depend on when staying at a new place.
Chad, We really enjoyed our stay!! The whole family had a great time. Thanks for your all your support. Regards Mike
Our stay at Sandy Bottom was really nice. The place was clean. Amenities for tea coffee, extra towels and Linen was available. Chad was wonderful with accommodating our last minute requests and checking in to see if we were comfortable. I just wish we had better weather to enjoy the beach which was a few blocks away. Thanks Chad, we will definitely visit again :)
