Very cute canal front home with everything we needed and very comfy beds! Worked perfectly for us with 2 adults and 2 kids (14 & 10). We enjoyed fishing, paddle boarding and relaxing at the beach (several access roads are just a short drive away). Felt like we were away from the hustle yet still not far from Galveston and the shopping and restaurants and activity there. Overall, wonderful long weekend stay! Thanks you for your home!
Sounds like a fantastic active AND relaxing getaway (the best of both worlds) was had on the bay canal, delighted to hear! Appreciate you choosing our home for your vacation time. Would be thrilled to have you back again!
We had a wonderful time at the property everyone enjoyed themselves will robbed on Friday and that early Monday how arrival date was Friday September 31st and everything was as nice as the owner said it was everything was in place and it was just a beautiful scenery and we really did enjoy the time away I would recommend this to all of my friends and family to go and enjoy thanks Ellen
Wonderful time when you arrived on Friday, absolutely delighted to hear! Thanks for choosing Soak Up The Sun for your vacation time and finding everything needed to exceed your expectations! We're thrilled you'll be recommending our home to your friends and family. Much appreciated.
Confortable and Relaxing location
We really enjoyed staying at this beach house, they have all the necessary amenities, plenty of blankets, pillows, towels and kitchen utensils. The place is nice and clean like a hotel but has the comfort of feeling like home. This is our first time in Jamaica Beach, it is a calm community surrounded by the ocean and lagoon, nice contrast to busy Galveston. We enjoyes fishing and kayaking for the first time. They have verything we needed, just bring your clothes and groceries. They also have a grocery store where you can find plenty of supplies.
So happy to hear you so thoroughly enjoyed your time at Soak Up the Sun and the surrounding area amenities! We'd love to have you back again for some more island time!
At first I was a little disappointed. I thought there would have been a separate bathroom for me and the hubby since the description showed there were two. There are two, but the second is down below with utility room and you have to go outside to get to it. The outdoor deck made up for it though! Not a lot of privacy in the upper house. When we first arrived we could not get the exterior lights to come on which made it really hard to navigate around the dock and my mom fell. We called the owner the next day and they were quick to come out and unlock a door that controlled the lights so we could see to fish the remainder of our stay. We had a fantastic time once we got all the kinks worked out. I would recommend this property. The only other thing is the property is pretty small. We have stayed at other properties in the same neighborhood that were larger for less money. Decorated super cute too.
Thanks for taking time to write such a thorough review on one of our latest vacation rental additions. We truly hope you and your group enjoyed your extended holiday weekend getaway! Appreciate you choosing one of our homes! Regarding the 2 separate bath locations, we do have a section in our all home descriptions for exactly that - sleep/bath configuration. We try to be very upfront, as we know each home we represent is truly unique and different things appeal to different Guests. In this case, it states "~ 2nd full bath on lower level next to laundry & game room, separate access from main area." Perhaps we can adjust the wording a bit to make even more clear. Appreciate your feedback.
This home was very comfortable for 2 couples and a toddler. Watching fish swim over the canal lights at dusk from the expansive deck was a real pleasure. Parked my boat in the the boat slip which made for easy bay access for fishing in the morning, plus a short walk from the house to fish a large canal during the out going tide was really fun. Trout city! Wive(s)and kid enjoyed the park a short stroll away. Overall we all really enjoyed our 4 night stay. Price is also attractive enough for us to come down again as just one family! Looking to book another weekend here soon!
Delighted you so thoroughly enjoyed your stay and took advantage of all the activities available at our home! We'd love to have you back again!
Brought our boat and used the available slip, super simple. We thoroughly enjoyed the plentiful outdoor spaces incl massive deck overlooking the canal and lower area with fishing lights and cool tiki bar. Inside is clean, tidy and comfortable. Wish the weather would have been a bit warmer, although it is Feb.
Delighted to hear you got to take advantage of the unique outdoor benefits and activities available at this home despite the cooler temps. Also, thanks for taking good care of our home during your stay. Please come back again!
