Why Steve and Kathy Waite chose Galveston

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.

Gorgeous house and property

  • 5 of 5

Property was gorgeous and everything was just as described. The beaches don't compare to Panama City beach but the house and canal was absolutely amazing and relaxing. Everything we needed to make ourselves at home was right there at the house.

The property was very clean and well maintained. Jamaica beach was relaxing and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nicely decorated, very clean and offered all the comforts of home. The owners have put a lot of thought into what one might need while at a vacation house and it was much appreciated. We had 10 in our party including four children and the house worked well for us. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The beach was literally just a couple blocks away and kayaking and fishing on the canal was wonderful! We caught a couple crabs off the deck but ended up at the fish market down the road for more plus shrimp. The house is fully stocked with plenty of blankets, towels, pillows and a fully loaded kitchen for all the cooks. Jamaica beach is a fairly quiet and small community with a nice little store and a couple of eat in restaurants but little else. Galveston is 20 minutes away so make sure to have a thorough shopping list when you go in.

The house has a wonderful variety of items for the beach- we definitely enjoyed the boogie boards and kayaks.

One item to note- the pull out couch is a twin bed so you might plan on a blow up mattress if people are staying in the living room. We put a queen mattress in there with no problems.

Also, if you are not an ocean lover, there is a nice community pool in the neighborhood just a couple of blocks over with a cute park and playground attached. A day pass is $5.00.

Overall, we had a great time and had great communication with the owners. I would definitely stay here again!
