About Jackie

As a beach person, it was only natural that we searched out Galveston to see what it was all about. We loved it and decided that was the kind of work I would really enjoy... building and renting on the beach! Well, it is forty years and 19 houses later and we are down to our last house. This is the first house we did not build, but the location was so terrific we decided this was the house we want to grow old in.

Why Jackie chose Galveston

We have had several homes in Galveston. We always buy front row beach houses because of the accessibility to the beach. The sound of the waves and the views are spectacular. This is by far our favorite home.

What makes this house unique

29 steps to the beach!!!!!

huge wraparound deck with shaded pergolas.

huge great room (900 sq feet)

huge yard

fantastic private location

2 acre lot

This was a beautiful spot. Easy driving distance to Galveston and yet a quiet stretch of beach. The house can easily take a number of people while offering privacy to individuals and the spot just couldn't get any more beautiful. There were so many wildflowers, little bunnies, seabirds. It was wonderful.

such a great veterans day weekend with friends/family at oceans eleven. the house/furnishings are old but very clean and user-friendly. location is such that there isn't a single obstruction between the back deck and the beach giving the illusion that you have the entire island to yourself. such a treat. recreational parachutists landing in front of us on the beach each morning was a delightful bonus! would recommend the property to anyone looking for the same kind of escape i was. if i had one suggestion, it would be that some of the furnishings (beds, couch, living room chairs, guest room accouterments) get a comfort upgrade. other than that, wouldn't change a thing.

wonderful

  • 4 of 5

This place has plenty of room. Even more than my family needed. Nice view, all we need was food drinks toiletries and Sun block. The only need for improvement was ants coming in

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. So sorry about the ants that came to visit. Because we are surrounded by nature, it is hard to decide if we should spray more than recommended. My concern is about the side effects of pesticides. We have so many children as guests. I will continue to try and solve the problem.

I would love to book the house again. I also want to talk to Jackie, but it seems I have lost her number. Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
