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 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!

For the price the stay was good, the home is a bit outdated and needs some improvements both in the interior and exterior. It\'s a great location,nice set up and nicely decorated just needs some improvement such as new paint job in and out the house and the siding of the house needs to be replaced, restrooms could use some upgrades as well as the beds. Other than them few things house is nice and stay was fun.

Thank you- Ryson team We had a good stay at the Bent Rod. Location was private, peaceful, relaxing. The house dated buys appeared to be in slow renovation phase. The patio was a plus with the covered patio. We sat and listened to the rain over some champagne. Very relaxing and dry lounge area. The only minor issue, was that the light switches didi not turn anything on or off. I had to turn the lamp on at the source? My wife fell going up the dark stairwell, luckily she was ok. Anyways, the pros outweighed the con. The circleK was very convenient for coffee and such. WiFi was fine, no issues at all which was better than the city's WiFi . Small suggestion, a ramp for handicap access would make it easier loading and unloading our luggage and goodies. Thank you for a nice relaxing vacation. Sam and Vicki

Pros- The description of the property was accurate. Well furnished home, clean, nice neighborhood and amenities as shown. Check-in was easy and rental company responsive. Cons- The property is more rundown than then photos tell. Flooring cracked, wallpaper pealing, electrical switches and plugs not all working, and air conditioning couldn\'t keep up. I expected more upkeep for the price point.

Inside of home was clean and comfortable, had everything we needed to make our stay like being at home. Outside needed some cosmetic repairs, but that is to be expected on the coast with the damp salty air. Enjoyed fishing right off the lower deck. House is close to everything you need. We will definitely stay at this unit again.
