Location

Car: Necessary

Jamaica Beach is a Small Laid-Back Community built Around the Beach and the Bay. A Casual Atmosphere with Friendly People who Wave almost every time they pass. People whose Days are spent around the SaltWater and reflect Relaxed, Happy Faces. With their own Police Force constantly patrolling, you will feel that it is a Safe Place too.

The Beach is Wide, Expansive and the Waves roll in with Grace and that Perfect Peaceful Sound. People are Walking, or Surfing, or Fishing or just Sitting and Enjoying.

And if you are missing something, Everyone buys their Groceries at Seven Seas Grocery, mostly dressed in shorts and flip-flops. This Grocery has been there since the 40's, but now offers even Organic Foods.

Jamaica Beach and surrounding Area Restaurants are Casual but all have Great Seafood caught that Day from the Gulf.

Or you can go straight from the Beach to the Bar or "Hole-in-the-Wall" Hamburger/Pizza Place next to the well stocked Hardware. Or for more Gourmet Hamburgers, drive a short distance down the highway for an extensive selection.

Or just spend your day enjoying your own Waterfront, Grilling your own fish or burgers, Relaxing on your own Deck with Family and Friends and Watching the Boat Traffic come by each evening to Wave at all who are out to see them.

In this Lagoon, the residents fly Flags to signal that they are in Residence. You can fly our Flags or Bring your Own.

Jamaica Beach only exists for Enjoyment. So come Enjoy!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: When my children were young, my family discovered Galveston. The beach, the sea breeze, exploring the old downtown became a part of our lives. We loved the island atmosphere and escape. Thirty years later when grandchildren came along, we began going back and renting a house twice a year. Finally, we decided to find a waterfront house of our own.

Why Jamaica Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
This property was in bad shape when we first looked at it. But it had the size we needed, the long dock, but mostly, it had the Beautiful view of the Bay. After a complete renovation, our family began to enjoy many hours spent out on the water, or lounging on the deck, or heading to the beach or going into town. But the best thing of all was seeing children up through teenage, put down their electronics to spend the entire day on the Kayaks and Paddleboards, or jumping off the dock, or catching crabs and shrimp, or Fishing into the night, or playing volleyball, or basketball-----all outside! Amazing!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best about renting a house on the Bay are all the things there are to do. My family rented only Beachfront house for years, then discovered the canal homes. At a beach house you still have to carry all the beach chairs, towels, drinks, etc. to the beach and then after some hours, the heat makes you head for the house. With a House on the Bay, you can still get to the Beach in 5 minutes and stay for as long as you want, but when you come back--there is still swimming in the lagoon, or kayaking, Paddleboarding, or fishing, or outdoor sports or just relaxing with a drink in your hand at the Outdoor Bar catching the Big Game and enjoying the view. The great benefits of this house are: the View of the Bay from a wall of windows, the Peaceful Lagoon, the pull of the water urging you outside, the sound of the lapping waves against the dock, the smell of the sea, the beautiful pelicans gracefully gliding by, the people waving from their boats, watching the fish in the fish lights and the constant sea breeze against your skin. And all of it only for the purpose of peace and enjoyment.
