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 guest reviews

Very fun house with plenty of space and in a convenient location. Host and maintenance were very helpful. Everything we could have asked for and more. Would definitely book again!
Jonathan C. | May 2024
This home is simply amazing. We had the very best time playing games, hanging out by the canal, fishing, kayaking, watching the fish at night and spending relaxing time with our friends. The kayaking was the most enjoyed by our teenagers! I would definitely recommend staying here at the Cottage on the Canal.

The home itself is lovely. My family really loved it.
