The beautiful 'Texas Star' is the canal front home in Jamaica Beach that your family will never forget this very special time spent together. The four bedrooms and three full baths will accommodate up to 10 guests.

The beach is a short drive from the house, by car, or rent a golf cart from the concierge service-ask your vacation planner. Bring your boat and tie off at the house, fish for trout, redfish and even flounder! The Texas Star has underwater night fishing lights (not guaranteed) for the avid fisherman. A new 16’ a custom-made bar has been added to the entertainment area downstairs at Texas Star. This bar has a new 40” TV with satellite and music channels. The Texas Star boat dock will accommodate up to a 24’ boat. Guests may launch their boats at the Jamaica Beach boat ramp (no fee to launch).

This home has been recently updated with comfortable and luxurious furnishings and accessories.

Make Texas Star part of your family vacation tradition.

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!

7 Adults comfortably share this beautiful spacious Lakefront home in celebration of friend's turning 50! Equipped with all the necessary tools. NJOYED the inside and out. However, after only two hrs of our arrival the CABLE went out NOT ALLOWING us to have any access to any of the TV's for the duration of our 3 day stay I could only imagine if we stayed 7 days the outcome. This was a huge disappointment for allllll! And this could shake are break anyone returning especially after getting maintenance to make two trips a day after our arrival We trouble shouted, they troub shoot and we were on the phone with direct TV for answers.Still, no good results and was told service man would be here on wed, days after our departure. NEVERTHELESS, WE ADULTS made the best of our stay with great laughter, games and divine fellowship! LOUISIANA AND TEXAS FOLKS Living our BLESS life 2018 MAKINGMEMORIES WITH TEXAS STAR, MERCI BEAUCOUP!
