Fresh and Open Family Living
The main-level great room is open and bright, with high ceilings and lots of natural light. The walls are painted a sea-glass inspired blue with crisp white trim. An ample and relaxed sectional sofa has a chaise lounge and is piled high with plush throw pillows. There’s plenty of room on the couch for everyone to snuggle up for a family movie night or a fun game night.
The tidy and efficient kitchen has clean white cabinets, sparkling quartz workspaces, and a classic subway tile backsplash. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare fresh-brewed coffee in the mornings, quickie beach snacks in the afternoons, or a complete dinner in the evenings. A cozy breakfast nook space has four beachy teal barstools, while a formal dining space has seating for six people.
Plenty of Private Sleeping Space
The private master suite is located down a short hallway and features a king-size bed and mounted flat-screen television. A wood-tone paddle fan and lots of ocean-inspired touches create a stylish yet casual private oasis. The ensuite master bathroom has a step-in shower.
Two more bedrooms on the main floor offer more sleeping space for your crew. One bedroom has a king-size bed, while the other bedroom has a queen-size bed and a twin-over-twin-size bunk. A full-size bathroom can be accessed from the hallway and has a tub/shower combo.
On the ground level, a fun bunk room and hang-out space will be a hit with all the kiddos in your group. With two twin-over-full-size bunk beds and a trundle, there’s space for seven people to sleep comfortably. There’s also a foosball table, flatscreen television, and an attached half bath with a washer and dryer.
Paradise at The Purple Turtle
Outside on the covered patio, a spacious dining table provides the perfect space for alfresco meals. Grill up some fresh seafood on the charcoal grill and blend some frosty margaritas at your very own cantina bar— the ground floor of The Purple Turtle was built for entertaining. There’s also a spacious yard that’s fully fenced-in, so you can let your four-legged family members run around and play safely.
The Purple Turtle is located around the corner from the Jamaica Beach access point— it’s about a five-minute walk away. You’ll also be close to local shops and restaurants, too. The quiet, residential neighborhood will have you feeling like a Texas coast local, while the easy access to the beaches will keep your whole family in relaxed vacay mode. Let The Purple Turtle show you the way to a magical Galveston getaway.

Everything we needed for our trip was at this home. Convenient location so close to the beach, everything you need to cook at home, and pet-friendly! We loved it!
The beach is beautiful quarter mile walk from the house and a straight shot. This please is super clean and spacious and even had a small yard for outdoor activities and littles to let off some steam. Galveston is an easy 15 min drive away. We shared the house with my sister and her family and it was a great space to share! I highly recommend the purple turtle!
Very nice place to stay...
Really enjoyed this house. Had many unexpected accommodations. Provided toilet paper and paper toilets and trash bags which most houses aren’t required to have. Had great privacy and a fenced in yard which was great for kids. Very comfortable, homey, and clean!
This house was so beautiful and decorated very cute! I was a little surprised to see that the bunk room isn’t attached to the rest of the house, but it was well air-conditioned, had a tv, and a toilet in the laundry room so it worked out great! The yard was a great size for cornhole and playing catch. We greatly enjoyed our stay!!!
Super cute and cozy house! Clean and decorated nicely and the hosts are very great at communicating. Easy peasy process!
Great place and very spacious. You will love it
Very accommodating for a large group -- convenient location, updated decor, easy communication with owner...
Great and cute house. Would love to go back in the summer. Lots of beds just keep in mind one of the bedrooms is reached by going down the outside stairs.
