About George Adkins

We have lived in the Houston area for 20+ years and have always enjoyed visiting Galveston for family fun. In the fall of 2014 we purchased this as our family retreat and we are glad to share it with other responsible families and friends.

George Adkins purchased this townhome in 2014

Why George Adkins chose Texas Gulf Coast

This home is only steps from the beach in a quiet, uncrowded area. Yet is is only 15 minutes from the major attractions that Galveston offers. It is also conveniently located a short walk from the local grocery store, restaurant, and watering hole.

What makes this townhome unique

Friendly locals, clean beach, you can drive here and never get in the car again.

Perfect vacation with family

  • 4 of 5

From the moment we walked in we loved the place. It was walking distance to the quiet beach and the kids were able to run around and play freely. The kids loved the bunk beds. Plenty of towels were provided and the washer and dryer being there was a plus! The water pressure was really low so showers took a while but we made it work. The first night we got pizza from Mario's and it was great!!! We also visited Moody Gardens and walked The Strand and went La Kings Confectionary. SO YUM! The weather was great and the chairs and water/sand toys were great that were provided in the shed. The only thing we were disappointed with was the grill. My husband was excited to use the pellet grill that so many others had commented on. We went to the store one evening and bought chicken and steaks and marinated them the next day. That evening he went to light the grill and the breaker flipped. We called the owner, which was available right away and he said we could use the neighbors outlet but the grill tripped it as well. So we were left to get in the car and find fast food near the sea wall since everything in Jamaica Beach was closed. So check the grill before buying food! Other than that, it was AWESOME!

Nice quiet setup for a large family

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I took our 7 children to Galveston for a couple of days to enjoy the beach and relax. This is a nice and quiet place to stay. We had a great time even though we are in the middle of these massive rains. We were able to get to the beach for a couple our hours each day and enjoy the waves. The beach was clean and quiet which was exactly what we were looking for. The condo had plenty of room for our whole family. The kids loved it, especially the upper deck balcony with the Astrodome seats. The property is older and has some wear and tear like most Gulf coast homes, but overall it was a great setup for us. It is well equipped, but if you forget something there is a nice little grocery just a block away. One of the best things was the Traeger wood pellet grill that we were allowed to use. I think I am going to have to get one of those now after grilling some fantastic burgers on that thing. We had a really good time.
