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!

Nice beach front house

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice beach front house, next to the beach entrance road, so it was a little busy. The house accommodated our large party with a great deck overlooking the beach.

We had a great time at Bella. The house is in a great location on the beach and is still convenient for drives into Galveston. The view from the deck as awesome. We spent our first morning watching the pelicans diving into the ocean to catch fish - it as mesmerizing.

The house has plenty of space and is very comfortable as well as being well cared-for and very clean.

We are already planning our next trip back!

Owner's Response: Mike - we are so glad to hear that you had a GREAT time at Bella. It's one of my favorite activities watching the Pelicans diving for food with a cup of coffee in hand in the morning on the large deck. We look forward to welcoming you back for more fun and relaxation!

Great Location and Nice house

  • 4 of 5

We have a large family of 8 and this house worked out perfect for us. It's right on the beach and had plenty of room for everyone. I would highly recommend renting a golf cart to drive on the beach as well as the neighborhood across the street with a park.

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.
