Island Life in a professionally decorated canal home can be yours! This four bedroom home is located on an oversize lot in Jamaica Beach. Island Life is unique, charming and so well done - this will be your "go-to" vacation rental home on Galveston Island.

This home has an open concept living/dining/kitchen area with an extra-large balcony and extended balcony out to the canal. Ample seating in all areas for guests to enjoy views of the canal, sunset, and cool breezes. The kitchen is fully equipped for meals for 14 guests.

This specially designed home has two bedrooms up and two bedrooms at ground level (not connected by an interior staircase, perfect for guests with mobility issues or two separate families who like to share). Upstairs the master bedroom has a queen bed, ceiling fan and large flat-screen TV, en suite bath with a large step-in shower. The second bedroom also upstairs features a queen bed and television. The second bath upstairs has a step-in shower. The third bedroom at the ground level is a bunk room for 6 - one twin over full bunk bed and one twin over twin bunk bed in this room. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds that may be pushed together for a king. 3 rollaway twins available also.

At ground level, the sleeping accommodations are in a Jack-n-Jill style separated by a mini kitchenette with mini frig and coffee pot, and full bathroom with shower. The washer and dryer are also located in this area.

The outside of Island Life is where the fun really begins - so much space for everyone to spread out and enjoy a weekend at island life. The decks and balconies have a variety of tables and chairs for gameplay, afternoon cocktails, fish cleaning station, underwater fishing lights! This home also has a boat house where guests may tie off their marine vessels! This home also has an outdoor shower to rinse off if you swim in the canal.


COMMUNITY OF JAMAICA BEACH

Jamaica Beach is one of the most popular beaches and sought-after neighborhoods when it comes to vacation rentals – what it lacks in size, it makes up for action during the summer months, holidays and event weekends! Jamaica Beach is far enough out to be away from the hustle and bustle of Seawall (8 miles), and but not too far away from most of the island attractions (10 miles from 61st Street).

Jamaica Beach also has its own community pool* and private marina and boat ramp, Regatta Basin,* a community pavilion* and playground.*

*Community pool seasonal and at discretion of the Jamaica Beach community. Please inquire for additional details, fees and current limitations regarding amenities.
