About the property

Let your worries float away: book now for an ultimate beach front stay!

Spend an unforgettable vacation at this bright and cheery OCEAN FRONT home, 'Bella', in Jamaica Beach! Just walk outside and you are standing on the beach! All you can hear is the sound of the waves crashing into the shore!

'Bella' is your home away from home on the Gulf Coast. The house features an open floor plan that spans the length of the house and features a wall of windows for spectacular views over the Gulf of Mexico. The living area features a comfortable seating area with a large flat screen HDTV for endless entertainment, a dining area, and additional seating at the kitchen bar. You'll love cooking in the well-equipped kitchen that features granite countertops along with custom cabinetry.

A fully equipped kitchen lies beyond a dining room and living room. Three bedrooms sleep up to 14 people comfortably on quality bedding, and each room has an HD flat-screen TV with expanded cable and all movie channels. A master bedroom with a king bed and a full-size Fulton that looks out to a spectacular view of the beach, a Full bed in the second bedroom, a third bedroom includes a pyramid bunk and a bunk bed (a full and 3 twins) and trundle bed with 3 twins. There are three full bathrooms, and the whole house has broadband Wi-Fi access.

When you come in from the beach, you can rinse the sand off without tracking it inside. It is the perfect vacation home for families.

Relax on the deck as you enjoy the sun, sea breeze and sounds of the surf. Ponder the wonders of the sea with a glass of wine or cold ice tea from a lounger or built in seat on the large deck. Inside or out you will marvel at the spectacular sunrises, moon rises, and starlit nights!

Bella locates in Jamaica Beach, Galveston. The home is located just 14 minutes from Moody Gardens, the Schlitterbahn water park, and the Lone Star Flight Museum. Plus, Rick's Beach Rentals (4 miles down the road) rents kayaks, bicycles, surf boards, paddle/boogie boards, canoes, and golf carts.

Whether you want to take a romantic moonlit stroll on the beach or build sand castles with the kids, Bella is a place you will truly enjoy. And, the house is located close to grocery store, liquor store, and pizza shop within a half mile…what more could you ask for at the beach!

About Tam

Visiting Galveston as a child, I've always gaze at the colorful houses along the drive to the beach. It’s almost like a 'dream come true' when we acquired this piece of paradise. We enjoy this vacation home immensely and hope you do too. We hope to put as much as possible back into continual upgrades to make this house the best it can be for enjoyment and relaxation.

Tam purchased this house in 2015

Why Tam chose Jamaica Beach

We wanted a vacation home to create family memories to be passed down through the generations and this beautiful beach front property is a dream come true. We look forward to hosting many family functions such as reunions and birthdays at our beach home. We hope our guests will come year after year to build wonderful and lasting memories here also. And, the fact that the Jamaican Beach police patrol the beach often make us feel safe here with our family.

What makes this house unique

We love to play on the beach all day! We love to watch the many sunrises and sunsets on the spectacular deck with a cup of coffee in the early hours and a glass of wine in the evening. The expansive deck and panoramic beach view tell us the moment we enter that we are away from business as usual and the everyday grind. We love the fact that we can walk down the stairs and right onto the beach. And each time we arrive, we love the sound of the surf and the feel of the sea breeze immediately leaves our stress and take us to a place of pure relaxation!

Perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

Overall nice house. The kitchen was great. The only down fall was there were no wash clothes and only one kitchen towel and dish cloth. Other than those minor things everything was great.

No issues w/ the property. Great location & well kept. Temp settings made the house stuffy.

Recommendation: make the address visible to find for night/dark arrivals.

Great house right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our group. It's right on the beach, and the big porch is great for hanging out. There is a grocery store right down the street for food. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Brian: we are happy to hear that you and friends had a great time celebrating and making memories. Being right on the beach that is easy and convenient. And the large deck provides ample space for entertainment and relaxation. Now that the Dollar General store is opened a mile from the house, getting the last minute snacks and drinks is a few minutes away. We look forward to your next visit. Thank you for staying with us.

We had a nice time.

  • 4 of 5

The Beach access was super close which was great with small kids. The beach was pretty busy. The rooms were really small and the bathrooms are tiny. The house was clean and we overall enjoyed the stay
