Property description

Jamaica Beach, Texas has certainly progressed a lot since its groundbreaking in the 1950s… First born as a weekend playground in 1956 with limestone roads, Jamaica Beach is now a beloved upscale seaside community.

Come see what Jamaica Beach life is like by staying in this fantastic 2-bedroom plus den, 1.5-bathroom stand-alone house located on a nice piece of land. It’s right by Galveston St. Park and has a nearby boat ramp. Even though this delightful home was built in 1968, it was recently renovated with new central heat and air, updated bathrooms, new paint, and crown molding! You’ll immediately feel relaxed from the moment you first walk in the front door. Stroll up and down the private Jamaica Beach resident beach with your travel companions and feel the stress of everyday life melt away…

This home’s location could not be more ideal – It’s only 5-10 minutes from the action of Galveston, Texas, but here you have peace and quiet. The private beach for Jamaica Beach residents is world-class, and you’ll find tons of opportunities for all sorts of beach activities, especially fishing. What are you waiting for?
