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.
Guests of our Jamaica Beach rentals get full access to the water on all sides: the Regatta Basin Public Boat Ramp leads guest out to the West Bay, and Jamaica Beach's public stretch of sand is wonderfully family-friendly. Visit Galveston Island State Park for hiking, bird watching, unsupervised swimming, and camping. Jamaica Beach Swimming Pool is a hot spot in the summertime - beat that Texas heat no matter where you are!
Get your city fix over in Galveston, just a 25-minute drive away - visit the Strand for art galleries and fabulous eateries, or enjoy local attractions like Moody Gardens and the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Water Park.
Our pretty Jamaica Beach rentals bring Island Time to you in a local package - a quieter, simpler destination, with all the perks of the big city right next door.
