About Vacasa of the Texas Gulf Coast

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Quick trip to the coast

  • 4 of 5

The location was great! The dock out back is on a canal with easy access to Galveston Bay. We easily launched our kayaks and enjoyed exploring the neighborhood and a little bit of the bay. <br />

We prepared lunch and breakfast easily in the big kitchen. My family sat at the bar to eat, and while I was cooking. There is a dining table as well. We used the grill for some fresh shrimp from Alex's seafood market. It worked well. Bring your own grill tools and foil.<br />

I enjoyed the back deck over the dock. It has a large sitting area. I also did a little sunbathing on the lower side deck.<br />

The bedrooms are split with the bunk beds on the ground floor. The upstairs beds were comfortable enough. I didn't try the beds downstairs. The bathroom on the first floor is much more spacious than the one on the main level. The laundry is on the ground floor as well. <br />

A drawback is that the stairwell is outside so a family with young children might not be able to use the bunk room without an adult rooming in.<br />

Some of the outside furniture was showing wear - I imagine the climate is hard on the wood. There was a cushion missing and some stains on the light colored cushions on the upper deck. <br />

I couldn't figure out how to turn on the outside shower on the side deck (after kayaking) so I'm not sure it was working. <br />

I wish we had more time here. We arrived late in the evening, had one more night, and left the second morning... The neighborhood is quiet. A great place to relax!<br />

Dont do it - Keep scrolling and find another house

  • 1 of 5

Im not sure that the other people stayed in the same location because this house is disgusting. We were there for 2 days and completely overwhelmed by roaches. The downstairs bedroom smells like mildew so bad its actually unusable. When we first got there the downstairs area was covered in trash and empty beer bottles. Those cute colored chairs? Yea - those are thrown around on the porch. 3 of them actually. Covered in rotting leaves and flowers. The cookware was caked in so much food and filth we actually had to go buy stuff to cook with. The BBQ pit doesnt work. So bring one or drive 30 mins to Wal Mart and buy one like we had too. The bedroom closet doors are all broken off and just proped up on the wall (look closely and you can see this in the photos) The kitchen cabinets are actually falling off and the couches are ripping apart. DO NOT put food in the fridge downstairs. It doesnt work and we almost lost $100 in meat. Fortunately we caught it and we were able to save it. It was hands down the filthiest rental we have ever stayed in. Hopefully Vacasa makes this right and changes the pictures to be acurate. And hopefully the homeowner reads these reviews and sees that the house is in need of major repair and cleaning.

Great place to get you on the water

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for our fishing trip easy in and out

The only thing that would make it even better is if Jamaica beach had there own marina fuel and bait.

Awesome week

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed here for a week and we loved it. Everything was clean and in order. We had everything here that we would have had at home. The fishing was great behind the house. The location was awesome. The house next to us was been worked on but the work crew kept the noise down when we were there. The beds were comfy. I can't wait to go back in a few months. I will recommend this house to my friends and family. The washroom was great and came in handy with us being there for 5 days. We were able to check in early which was a plus. No late checkout was available which was kinda a bummer but it was still a awesome stay. Even though the house didn't have the fishing light we were able to use the neighbors by just casting over to the lights. The front deck was awesome to sit out on and have dinner outside and drinks outside. Great neighborhood. The house was very clean when we got there.
