vacation rental description

Following an extensive renovation, Jamaica Beach's most-requested vacation home, 'Kachina Cay', is now back & even better than before!

Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Kachina Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'

'Kachina Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak from our dock right into the wildlife preserve at Galveston State Park (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the hammock, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard; & a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our slip or simply spend the afternoon playing horseshoes in the yard or grilling on the deck.

Above all else, 'Kachina Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!

Our amenities...: Following an extensive renovation, 'Kachina Cay' now features beautiful granite countertops, glass tile back-splashes, stainless appliances, two full decks overlooking the water and Galveston State Park and much, much more. With two decks & an expansive open floor plan, the home is designed to allow large groups to comfortably relax together.

Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck!

Amenities include: 46' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed wifi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic memory foam mattress-toppers, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, a single and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and a new tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered hammock & swing, 8 person picnic table, beach chairs, boogie-boards, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!

NEW! We now have Google Chromecast at 'Kachina Cay', allowing you to stream Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, HBO Go, and more directly from your phone or tablet to the TV!

Pets: Your pets are part of your family and are always welcome in our home with no additional pet deposit. The yard has been designed to give them room to play safely and away from the water.

traveler reviews for this galveston house rental

Paradise Found

Review submitted: September 5, 2012   Date of arrival: August 28, 2012

Went searching for a long overdue vacation getaway to wind down summer and Labor Day and low and behold stumbled on Kachina Cay. I can confirm every single prior review and superlative used to describe the Cay and wholeheartedly recommend. Robin was very responsive, kind and allayed any and all doubt and apprehension. When you drive up the house beckons you to leave behind all worry and burden. The initial explore reveals the obvious pride in ownership and the expansive downstairs, upstairs and home itself is sound, sturdy, kid friendly and eye appealing. Nobody mentioned the hanging swing downstairs, and this is a perfect zen perch I called dibs on immediately. Ah, the underwater light off the dock is like a green glowing circle aquarium of fish freeway traffic. My advice, pack light, almost everything is provided and you can pick up anything else nearby. The beach access across from Jamica Beach entry is extraordinarily clean and the folks are all well behaved. Only regret...leaving...but we left behind a lot of laughter and good karma behind for all future guests. Looking forward to returning Robin! Thanks again! Dorothy McGee, Huffman, TX

Owners response: Dorothy, thanks so much for the kind review. It's always nice to hear when people enjoy their time at the house. I'm glad you were finally able to schedule some time off from work and we're so happy we were able to host your vacation. Come back again soon! -Robin

Galveston oh Galveston!

Review submitted: July 28, 2014   Date of arrival: July 13, 2014

Having stayed in a number of rental homes throughout the country, I can honestly say that this one was very nice. It was clean and shiny when we arrived. Kitchen is beautiful! Thanks so much to the owners for the thoughtfulness they put into the amenities. Loved the kayaks and bikes. It's a great place for families. It stormed a few days while we were there and I have to warn others that the wooden stairs and decking are slippery when wet especially if you are wearing rubber flip flops. Also, the seaweed is bad this year on all of the beaches. If you want to be on a nice beach that has been cleared of the seaweed, head to Stewart's Beach.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly

Owners response: Phil and Kathy, thanks so much for allowing us to host your family's vacation and for the kind review. I hope we'll have the opportunity to have you back again on a future trip to Galveston. Thanks again!

Nachdem wir mit Ferienhäusern auch schon negative Erfahrungen gemacht haben, hatten wir unsere Erwartungen nicht zu hoch gesteckt. Doch alle Zweifel waren sofort wie weggefegt. Der erste Eindruck war einfach nur "WOW", das Haus ist großartig.

Um es kurz zu machen, wir waren begeistert und können das Haus nur jedem empfehlen, der wunderschöne Tage verleben möchte, bei denen es an nichts fehlt.

Der Vermieter ist sehr hilfsbereits und es ist alles da für einen perfekten Aufenthalt benötigt wird

Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in Kachina Cay verlebt

Viele Grüße auch Deutschland

English Version
After we already have made some ??negative experiences with vacation homes, our expectations were not too high. But by entereing the house all doubts were immediately swept away. The first impression was just "WOW", this house is gorgeous.

But let me summarize our stay with just a few words, we loved the house and can recommend it to anyone who wants to spend wonderful days without missing anything.

The owner is very nice and helpful and has almost everything you need to have a great stay.

We enjoyed an incredible week long vacation at Kachina cay.

Thanks and greeting from Germany

Owners response: Momme, thank you so much for the kind review and for allowing us to host your trip to the Texas Gulf Coast. Our housekeeper found a book left behind that was written in German... I'm guessing that one belongs to you! :) Let me know if you'd like me to mail it to you. Thanks again for staying at "Kachina Cay"! Sincerely, Robin and Wendy Harris
