  • Fantastic home, perfect for a family getaway!


    This home was beautifully decorated and well-equipped with all the kitchen supplies you need for cooking during your stay. All the toys and games downstairs and in the game closet were a big hit with the kids. It was a very clean and comfortable stay. One of our guests has mobility challenges and being able to use the lift made this a perfect place to stay. We would definitely stay again!

  • Just bring your clothes and food!


    I booked Jimmie Hooks for a family summer vacation for my family of 4, as well as my brother and sister and their family. To start, our hostess Nancy had good communication; first to let us know we could check in early. Yes!! And she made sure we arrived ok and were able to access the property. The home was very clean. We cooked and the kitchen had all the supplies we needed. Oh, and there is a grill outside too! The place had it all. We had 3 small kids and 3 teenagers in our group and there was plenty of entertainment for all. From board games to books etc. We didn't have infants or toddlers in our group but the place was equipped with high chairs, a pack, and plays etc. The same was true when we geared up to head to the beach. All beach amenities are included in the home, tents boogie boards, beach toys, an umbrella, and a cart to pull it all. And btw...the beach was only a 2-minute walk. No need for a car or golf cart. Upon returning from the beach we all relished the outdoor shower that has hot and cold water along with shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. The bar outside was a nice touch. I felt like we had our own little private party oasis. The neighborhood was very nice and everyone was so friendly smiling and waving as they pass by. We all agreed this was the best beach house to rent for families with children of all ages. Will definitely recommend Jimmie Hooks to my family and friends.

  • Best Beach House in Galveston


    First, the hospitality shown by the owner was seriously exceptional. The communication from the owner (Nancy) was top notch. Nancy was extremely helpful providing information about the property with precise details to aid in making sure my family and I had the best experience possible. I was very grateful for the communication. The property’s location is perfect for beach lovers like myself. Just a 2 minute walk to the beach; not to mention a convenient store, liquor store, and a pizza place all within walking distance. Bottom line, this is the absolute best beach house I have ever stayed in. Beautiful house with everything stocked with what you need to have a fabulous vacation stay with your family. This experience was a 10 out of 10 for me and my family! We will certainly be back!
