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.

Very clean! Nice large fenced in area!

  • 4 of 5

We loved Jamaica beach and we will definitely return ! The house was awesome & very clean! We loved the outside area with the large fenced in area for the dog, kayaks etc! We caught a few small fish and blue crab for dock/boat lift area!

The only thing bad was the the BBQ pit. The bottom tray where the ashes fall to was not functional but we made it work.

All in all had a great time and would highly recommend this area!
