Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We have been long time residents in the state of Montana. For several years we have been visiting Texas family and have just been falling in love with the Jamaica Beach area! In 2014 we decided we wanted to spend extended time in this area and found our Jamaica Gem. We will now be able to spend time with all our family in both states. We look forward to sharing our home with you in hopes you will make great memories on your Jamaica Beach Vacation!
