Barefoot Bungalow on the beachside in Jamaica Beach is only steps away from the beach with amazing views. This three bedroom, three bath bungalow sleeps 9.

Primary bedroom has a queen, 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and 3rd bedroom features a twin over full bunk bed. Open floor plan from the living room, dining and kitchen makes everyone a part of the vacation.

Jamaica Beach Texas is one of the most popular beaches and sought-after neighborhoods when it comes to vacation rentals – what it lacks in size, it makes up for action during the summer months, holidays and event weekends! Jamaica Beach is far enough out to be away from the hustle and bustle of Seawall (8 miles), and but not too far away from most of the island attractions (10 miles from 61st Street). Jamaica Beach also has it’s own community pool and private marina and boat ramp, Regatta Basin, a community pavilion and playground.

Ryson partners exclusively with Gulf Coast Concierge to make your time on the island unforgettable! Gulf Coast Concierge understands it's the little things that count. Create your own adventures with beach gear and golf cart rentals, a sunset cruise or a bonfire and smores on the beach. Gulf Coast Concierge also offers fishing charters, photo sessions, and a variety of in-home services. If you can dream it, we will do our best to make it happen!

We rented Barefoot bungalow for a family Christmas vacation. We used Ryson because we had rented with them before and had excellent and friendly service. Ryson staff helped us find the right house in the location we wanted with a view of the gulf and easy walk to the beach. The house was very clean and nicely appointed. We liked the addition of a first floor sleeping space with a third bathroom We highly recommend Ryson and look forward to more beach time in the coming year.

This house was substituted to us by Ryson on the day/afternoon of check-in when our originally contracted house became unavailable due to a long-term tenant deciding to stay in the house at the last minutes and leaving us in a lurch. This happened literally as we were about to depart from Houston for Galveston. While we appreciate that Ryson found us a substitute option, we ended up coming late due to spending time finding this substitute. It is very odd that Ryson did not know this in advance when we booked the original house and caused us some consternation. House is located in cul de sac with nice view and quite close to ocean - as close as many front row larger house farther down the beach. The condition is good overall and clean but showing some age with a few rusted bathroom fixtures, etc. The oven and cooktop was not working when we arrived. We had been told the cooktop was not working but was assured the oven worked - which it did not so we could not prepare certain meal items as planned. Ryson did bring a two burner hot plate so at least we had something to cook on other than the microwave and outdoor grill (which worked well). One of the sinks had a leak underneath which we reported and Ryson quickly came to fix. Overall we had a pleasant stay for three nights. The Ryson people are all very nice but they seems to have internal communications issues so worth verifying all arrangements.

The reason for a "good\"" instead of \""excellent\"" rating is that the WiFi worked sporadically - very frustrating when trying to work!

Grandkids, sand, sea, the sight of porpoises from the beach, watching a storm move in from the sea, a lovely, spacious and clean bungalow are all the things contributing to our wonderful stay.

My husband and I, along with our son, and two granddaughters (ages 4 and 7), had a super vacation at Barefoot Bungalow. First time renting a beach house and was not sure what to expect or how much to pack. (I can be a bit of a neat freak and preparedness is my superpower.) I was pleased with the cleanliness and had super over packed. The home was well stocked with all the accouterments needed for a very enjoyable 4 night stay. The home is situated directly in line with the private beach access for a nice view from the porch, as well as an easy and safe walk to the beach...even for the little ones. The furniture was comfortable, as were the beds and linens. I understand the sea air is hard on materials, but the outdoor furniture does need a little attention. Several rusted out screws leave the outdoor furniture a little unstable. We were able to use (and enjoy) everything, but had to be mindful of loose arms and table tops; potential safety issue. The lower room does have a VERY strong and foul odor, but is usable. We would recommend this property and would also stay there again, should we visit Jamaica Beach in the future!
