About Lisa Smith

Kevin and Elsa (Lisa) are the proud parents of Steven, Kevin Jay and Henry. In 2007 Kevin built 3 beach houses to help fund the kids education. If you have kids, you understand that we could not make one house nicer, bigger or better than the other. We now have 3 houses exactly alike, same furnishings, floor plan and similar decor. The only real difference is the color.

Lisa Smith purchased this house in 2007

Why Lisa Smith chose Jamaica Beach

One, two, or all three of these houses are perfect for family reunions, weddings and other family gatherings. They are perfect for events where you want to be with family but still want the luxury of going to your own private home whenever you want. House is fully furnished, kitchen is stocked with just about everything you could need, beds all have clean linens and underneath the house you will find a picnic table, a charcoal grill and a covered outdoor shower.

What makes this house unique

We are approximately 250 - 300 feet from the beach depending on which house you take. We are about 1/2 a block from Nate's Steak house, there's a Chevron gas station and grocery store next door. We are also across the street from the Jamaica Beach RV Park which has a public swimming pool, arcade and 18 hole miniature golf course that stays open late during summer. Its a quiet, family oriented clean and safe beach neighborhood. The beach stays pretty clean and the water goes out for yards before it gets beyond 5 feet in depth. There's lots of great fishing, sunbathing, and just plain fun in the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lisa,

As usual, our stay was awesome! It's our very own home away from home.

Thank you for the opportunity to spend time there.

Thanks again.

We Love staying at the 3 Beach Houses!

  • 5 of 5

We look forward to this trip every year. We love renting all 3 houses and being able to make new memories. Great location and we love that every year there is something new added that we can enjoy. This year swings on the patio to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze, the new patio doors and the big screen tv so we were able to watch the Texas Rangers and the Preseason Dallas Cowboy game. All 3 homes have that beach vibe. Love staying here and would recommend checking out 3 Beach Houses. I hope and pray that the lord will keep Galveston safe durning this tropical storm. Love Galveston Island!!!

Simple yet elegant

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Lisa's 3 beach houses for 4 years now and have never had any issues. Every year that my family and I show up there is some kind of improvement to all three houses and the property is maintained very well with nice grass and shade. The houses may look small outside but I was able to get 8 bodies per house (including kids) for my family reunion but I would not do anymore than that. First room had a queen and a twin bunk, the master room has one queen and the upstairs living room has a pull out bed with room for a blow mattress.

The grocery store that is walking distance has everything you can think of, might not have more than a few name brand selections but has everything imaginable. The restaurant is good and has a local cafe feel to it. There is normally a long wait on weekends so if you want a spot I would get your name on the list and walk back over to the house until called.

Nothing has ever happened while I was staying here but If there was ever an issue I know Lisa would have someone there to fix the problem immediately.

So for the excellent maintanence, service and price these houses are a no brainer. I recommend all my friends and family to these houses if they are ever looking for a place on the island.

Great rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my little family. Walk to 16 mile beach which was clean and well maintained. 7Seas grocery is 1 min away. House is clean, well equipped, great decks, new family room tv for movies, good wireless internet. There's a utility pole and wires in close view from the top deck but easily overlooked. Lisa was a pleasure to rent from.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best vacations ever! The house was clean, had everything we needed, nicely decorated, and was just a short walk to beach. The store next door is convenient and has a little bit of everything. Galveston is a beautiful town, we will definitely come back.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Beach house was in a great location with nice ocean views and short walk to the water. Plenty of space for 5 (including 2 teenagers). Short easy drive to Galveston strip where there is LOTS to do and MANY great restaurants. Nice to have laundry available for towels etc.

Would definitely recommend.
