COVID-19 Update (1-25-21):

To our current and future guests,

This has obviously been a strange time for all of us, and I wanted to put out as much up-to-date information as I can regarding the current situation in Galveston and the measures we are taking to ensure our guest's safety. Please continue reading below for more info...

The space
Covid update (continued)...

All Galveston beaches are open and we remain a good option for guests wishing to adhere to public safety guidelines, while still enjoying a trip to the beach. Out of respect to our entire community it's important that visitors keep groups to 10 people or less and practice responsible social distancing while at restaurants and other public places. The beaches in Jamaica Beach offer plenty of space to enjoy the sand and surf, while still maintaining the "social distancing" that is currently required.

Since our very first guest, we've maintained the highest level of cleanliness and safety in our home. Scan through the years of reviews we've accumulated from our previous guests and you'll see one common theme... clean.

Our house is meticulously clean. The entire property is professionally cleaned and disinfected between every guest, and we've put great thought into ensuring the amenities that we provide are clean and safe, and that our cleaning protocols reflect that. Our home will be spotlessly clean and safe for your stay... this I can guarantee.

Regarding our location, Jamaica Beach is uniquely positioned as it's own little community, separated from the City of Galveston, yet still only a 15 minute drive away. Being somewhat separated from the crowds and major attractions has been a blessing this year and as of today's date (9/24), Jamaica Beach has only had 5 confirmed cases of covid since this all began, which is one of the lowest rates in the entire state.

For guests seeking a vacation away from the crowds, we are perfectly suited for that. We have bikes, kayaks and beach toys for enjoying the beach or exploring the canals; and we have the grill, the decks, the underwater fishing light, and full cable & wifi for relaxing at the house.

Galveston area restaurants are open for dine-in and carry out, but if you choose to relax and stay close to the house, you truly do not need to leave the neighborhood to still have a great beach vacation. Several restaurants in the neighborhood are offering delivery and pick up as well if you do not wish to go into town.

Lastly, if you have any other questions or concerns, please call or message me directly. I want every one of our guests to feel comfortable and enjoy their stay with us and will do whatever is necessary to ensure that happens.

Sincerely,
Robin Harris

Property Description:

Following an extensive renovation in January 2017, "Jamaica Cay" is now back & even better than before!

Borrowing from Walt Disney's mission for Disneyland, our mission for 'Jamaica Cay' is simple...'to be a place where friends & family can have fun together.'
'Jamaica Cay' is a place where families can bike to the beach on our complimentary 'beach cruiser' bicycles. A place where children can fish from our pier or kayak through the protected canals of Jamaica Beach (we provide kayaks & life vests at no cost); a place where parents can relax on the deck, knowing the kids & pets are playing safely in our fully-fenced yard & a place where friends can enjoy a day of boating right from our boat slip or simply spend the afternoon grilling in the yard.

Whether you're looking to soak up some sun in the Jamaica Beach pool or spend the day hiking the nature trails of Galveston State Park, it is all within a mile of our home. Above all else, 'Jamaica Cay' is a place to get away for awhile, relax, and enjoy life with each other!

Our amenities...: Following an extensive renovation, 'Jamaica Cay' now features beautiful granite countertops, subway tile back-splashes, stainless appliances, two full decks overlooking the water and Galveston State Park and much, much more. With two decks & multiple entertainment areas, the home is designed to allow large groups to comfortably relax together.

Our private dock is equipped with an underwater fishing light to help draw in the 'big ones' after dark! Trout, red fish, drum, and several other varieties are frequently caught from our deck!

Fishing Guide & Boat Rental Service: If you're looking to hit the water for a guided fishing excursion, our professional guide service is available to pick you up right at our dock for a full day or half day bay fishing trip. Just walk right downstairs and hop on the boat... it doesn't get more convenient than that! Also, if you are interested in renting a boat during your stay, we can help you arrange a full or half-day boat rental at a special discounted rate for our guests!

For parents traveling with small children (a note from the owners)... we have young children of our own, and have designed this home with them in mind. We have taken great care to ensure our home allows your children to play safely AND allow parents to enjoy their vacation without constant worry. Lockable safety gates on both the upstairs deck and the fully-fenced yard help keep your children & pets safely away from the water. We also have a high chair and pack-n-play crib available for your use.

Wheelchair Accessible... "Jamaica Cay" is wheelchair accessible with a full length ramp extending from the ground level to the main level (including the living and dining rooms, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, deck and patio dining area).

Amenities include: 43' LCD TV, cable TV (in living room AND bedrooms) and complimentary high-speed WiFi, washer/dryer, Moen adjustable shower heads with massage setting, Tempurpedic king mattresses, attached boat slip, deck ladder for swimming in the canal, 2 single kayaks and a tandem kayak w/ paddles & life vests, 3 beach-cruiser bicycles and a tandem 2-person bike w/ helmets, covered swing overlooking the waterfront, 8-person patio dining table overlooking the water, separate waterfront grilling area with picnic table and charcoal grill, beach toys, boogie-boards, complimentary coffee station, all linens, towels, blankets, dishes, etc... all of this and more is included with your stay!

Pets: Your pet is part of your family and is welcome in our home with no additional pet deposit. The yard has been designed to give them room to play safely and away from the water. Some restrictions apply... we allow up to two dogs of 60 lbs or less. Must be current on all vaccinations.
