Following an extensive renovation in January 2017, "Jamaica Cay" is now back & even better than before!
Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Jamaica Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'
'Jamaica Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak through the protected canals of Jamaica Beach (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost). This is a place where parents can relax on the deck, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard, and it's a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our boat slip or simply spend the afternoon grilling in the yard.
Whether you're looking to soak up some sun in the Jamaica Beach pool or spend the day hiking the nature trails of Galveston State Park, it's all within a mile of our home. Above all else, 'Jamaica Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!
Our amenities... Following an extensive renovation in 2017, "Jamaica Cay" now features beautiful granite countertops, subway tile back-splashes, stainless appliances, two full decks overlooking the water and Galveston State Park and much, much more. With two wrap-around decks & multiple entertainment areas, the home is designed to allow large groups to comfortably relax together.
Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck! If you would like to charter a half or full day fishing excursion, we can connect you with a professional guide service that will pick you up right at our pier. Just walk downstairs and hop on the boat... it doesn't get more convenient than that!
A note from the owners for parents traveling with small children... we have a 4-year old, 3-year old and a 6 month old, so we know what it's like to travel with kids and have designed this home with them in mind. We've taken great care to ensure our home allows children to play safely AND allows parents to enjoy their vacation without constant worry. Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water and street. We also have a high chair and pack-n-play available for your use (just make sure to bring crib sheets).
