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.

Great house for our family summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and amenities. Loved being directly on the water to fish & kayak, and a super short drive to the beach. So nice to have use of all the "toys" in the garage including 2 kayaks, beach toys, bicycles, ping pong table & boogie boards. We grilled, played on the beach, fished, kayaked, read, napped, laughed and had a wonderful vacation.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our time at the property. House was clean with pretty much everything you need provided. The kids enjoyed kayaking. I would have like to be able to recycle but did not see any recycle bins. Also, I felt the beach chairs were too rusty for use except for one. Over all we had fun.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the beach house. We are so glad you were able to enjoy using the kayaks. It is so relaxing to cruise down the canals while getting in the exercise. We thank you for your feedback regarding the recycle bins and beach chairs. We had a recycle bin at the beginning of the summer and someone must have taken it somewhere else. I will be sure to get another. Also, I will be replacing many items after the busy summer season and the use of them with the salt water takes a toll. We are sure to replace items as needed.

Fun, Easy Stay

  • 5 of 5

Good location in Jamaica Beach. We came to fish, and spent the entire weekend doing that. Dock is nice, had a boat with us so we used the slip. Used the kayaks in the garage to fish off of and play in the canal. Garage had lots of toys. We did not use many of them since we were fishing, but if we had more time we would. Ping Pong table, bikes, beach toys, fishing poles, tent, chairs. Mosquitoes were not that bad, which surprised me. Canal is very shallow. That was great when a kid fell in and when they wanted to swim later. Kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook. Towels were provided. I forgot beach towels, shampoo, soap, and conditioner and had to go buy it. Don't forget it. Overall a great house. Would stay here again.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, and had more than you could ask for as far as extras. We even found fresh shrimp in the garage refrigerator left by the last guests (lol). We didn't catch any fish or crab from the dock, but who knows why ... Maybe that's normal? Absolutely everything we could ask for. Thanks!
