About Colleen Majoue

Reese and I love to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and head south to the Island of Galveston. Just being near the Gulf of Mexico makes us relax more and when we are on island time we can live life at a slower pace. Visiting Galveston year round is great. We especially love the off seasons - some of the best days of the year.

Colleen Majoue purchased this house in 2010

Why Colleen Majoue chose Galveston

We think this property has a great view of the water, it a comfortable size for families with children, we have fenced the yard for small children and our four legged fur babies as well.

Awesome house, quiet neighborhood, easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Our extended family was having a reunion "next door" at the State Park but we wanted real beds and showers and our search led us to this amazing little getaway! The Wi-Fi and satellite were wonderful perks because it allowed for quick photo uploads of the trip and enabled us to watched our beloved Aggies on Saturday evening. The king sized bed in the master bedroom was super comfortable after long days of playing hard with family and the kids really enjoyed the sleeping in their bunk beds. Having all the linens provided made packing even easier since we didn't have to worry about bedding or towels. There were so many little things that really made this vacation house feel like home which is something you don't often find. If we are ever in need of a beach house on the island again, we will definitely be back!

Wonderful place to stay. . .great owner. . .great location!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay. You can walk to the beach, sit on the deck enjoy the sunrise every morning with your coffe, and chat with family and friends on the deck in the afternoon. Location is only 11 miles to the Island's many restaurants and attractions. A peaceful, restful place to renew yourself and to escape city life! And of course you can bring your 4- legged friends who will love walking on the beach with you. Great place!!!

Excellent condition and location - just like the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very responsive when I inquired about renting the Jamaica Jewel property - via e-mail, phone and text. Lots of great features including fenced yard for our dog and WiFi for our electronic devices. The house was in excellent condition with helpful operational notes and labels well placed. Furnished with about everything you might need - almost like being at home. Walk or drive to the nice, clean beach in a few minutes. Our family of five plus a dog had a great time while there playing on the beach, hanging out at the house and going into town.

Location is approximately 10 miles west of all the hubbub of the seawall and the strand - which was just what we wanted. The neighborhood was very quiet and laid back. Directly across the street from the large Jamaica Beach water tower but the tower is behind the house and is only noticed when arriving or leaving. Stopped at the large grocery store on the way into Galveston so we didn't need anything from the businesses in the area but they seem to be plentiful and convenient.

Colleen was helpful with suggested restaurants to visit. Ultimately we did not visit any of her recommendations because the birthday girl decided she wanted pizza instead of seafood. Also very prompt with the damage deposit refund without having to contact her.

Everybody in the family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would gladly return. Five thumbs up from us!!

Perfectly sized, well kept, quiet and relaxing with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Jamaica Beach and it was the best yet. This house had all the space and comforts we needed and more. It also had a great view off the porch and was very close to beach access. We are hoping to return again next year and stay in the same house.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our annual Girl's Weekend at the beach! It was clean and comfortable, perfect for our needs and just moments away from the beach. We opted to drive to the beach because we had a lot of gear, but it was an easy walk back to the house if needed. You do cross a 4 lane road, but there is a light which makes crossing safe.

The house was very well stocked. We like to stop and buy groceries for the weekend as opposed to dining out ever night, though the first night we did drop by Nate's for a great seafood dinner! The kitchen had an array of items which enabled us to have large, family meals with no fuss. The beds were very comfortable and the house was perfectly decorated with a beach theme. The only negative were the bunk beds. They were very comfortable and I slept like a baby each night on the bottom bunk. However, two of the ladies found the bunk stairs hard on the feet so they opted to sleep on the couch instead. I do agree that the bunk bed bars were painful to climb on if you weigh more than 100 lbs. For kids I'm sure it's fine! Anyway, that is nothing against the house and didn't take away from the review. Just an FYI. Maybe we have tender feet LOL

The process was very easy and Colleen was a pleasure to work with. The smoke alarm battery started chirping at us the second night. We sent a quick text to let her know and the next day they came by the house to fix it. Very lovely homeowners. We hope to be able to stay at this house again next year.

We highly recommend this house to anyone!
