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), but not too far away from most of the island attractions (10 miles from 61st Street). Jamaica Beach also has its own community pool and private marina and boat ramp, Regatta Basin, a community pavilion, and a playground.

It is one-of-a-kind, big and lovely home, but beware that with the frequent use it gets, it might be in a little disrepair, at times. (see above)
