Make Jamaica Beach your next getaway

Once just a weekend playground, Jamaica Beach has since turned into one of Galveston Island's finest suburbs. Our Jamaica Beach rentals offer glorious views of the West Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, plus quick beach access, and a neighborhood feel that is both welcoming and serene. Vacasa is excited to offer Texas vacation rentals here in Jamaica Beach!

Located 15 miles from Galveston, and an hour and a half away from Houston, this small town in the middle of the island is the perfect distance from the hustle and bustle, and offers island-goers more of a locals' experience than they might find at some of the nearby resorts.

Recent Jamaica Beach vacation rental reviews

Love staying in Jamacia Beach and will be back again soon. This particular property needs some maintenance attention but suitable.
Clay E. | Jul 2024
We loved the house and the neighborhood. Our family enjoyed fishing, crabbing, floating, and swimming in the canals. The sunsets were spectacular over the water in the evening. The house was comfortable, clean, and had mostly everything that we needed. The boat dock area was our favorite place to hang out with our family. There are many barnacles on the dock ladder so be careful when exiting the water because they are really sharp. The only negative that I can really think of is the carpet and furniture staining from allowing pets.

We absolutely enjoyed the house! The upstairs porch was such a great place to enjoy morning coffee and visit! The pool was perfect! The staff arrived two times in our week long stay and cleaned the pool and hot tub thoroughly! We found ourselves spending lots of time beside the pool! The neighbors were great! No complaints on music or such as noted in the other comments. However, we did respect the quiet time of 10PM where we moved upstairs to hang out! The check out was easy and clean up was a minimal check list as required by owners. Things you may want to pack is a few essential kitchen items, foil pans, a pot or two, and maybe a baking sheet! Other than that this house was amazing for us! We will book again for sure! Also, for longer stays we would recommend a golf cart rental! The beach is close but not walking distance for younger children or if you’re lugging a lot of items to the beach. 😁
