Why Steve and Kathy Waite chose Jamaica Beach

Jamaica Beach has so many wonderful things to offer its visitors. It is a community that has been around for a long time and has amazing year round residents. They are their own city which offers everything you need in a community. A fire dept., police station,restaurants, stores, gift shops, a playground,and churches. It is a little bitty town with a big huge heart. Being close to the beach, offering canal views, and a boat launch to can't be beat.

What makes this house unique

We have a crab trap, shrimp nets, and kayaks that you can use to get your own catch of the day. You can use the large outdoor grill or the small fire pit to cook up your meal. Delicious...and such great memories.

Spring Break Stay

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was simply amazing a great location on the canal and not far from the beach. The kids had a blast and were able to keep their selves busy with kayaking, bike riding and ping pong, while the adults enjoyed relaxing with an adult beverage on the patio.

Would highly recommend this beach house to anyone who asks and wants a relaxing stay.

Loved being on the canal!

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 8 had a great time! We loved being able to kayak on the canal. The house was nice and comfortable. We were disappointed in the condition of the bikes, beach chairs and other toys. We enjoyed the Jamaica Beach community. We thought that the community pool would be open but found out that it's only open for part of the year. There was an Easter egg hunt at the community center that was fun for the kids. The owner's were great and responded quickly to our questions. They provided plenty of towels, tp, laundry detergent and other essentials. Loved the washer and dryer! Wish they would have provided beach towels.

Great place to stay!!! Will definitely be returning!!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. House is clean and has kayaks, beach accessories, fishing poles and more for you to use for your convenience. The vehicle access beach is less than a 5 minute drive and the housing area is quiet and relaxing. We were even able to catch some blue crab of the deck. There were some red snapper in the canal but we were not able to catch them. The property is about a 30 minute drive from Pleasure Pier, The Strand and other attractions. Great place to stay, we will be looking to comeback next year.
