The Crab Shack16610 Nassau Way, Jamaica Beach, TX 77554, USA
About this listing
Built on a deep water canal in Jamaica Beach, The Crab Shack is a cozy A-frame with a delightfully retro vibe. There’s space for nine people across three bedrooms and a newly built deck that reaches out over the sparkling canal and provides tons of elevated outdoor space for lounging, dining, or fishing. A shaded space under the home has a charcoal grill, outdoor shower, swinging chair and two kayaks. The Crab Shack is a quick drive away from the beach, grocery stores, and west end restaurants.

Mid-Century Modern Style
The unique, bright blue A-frame facade is surrounded by a charming white picket fence. The open and airy living space has a stylish mid-century style— with polished wood floors and white shiplap walls. A comfy gray sectional sofa is piled high with plush throw pillows and faces the flatscreen television. Two contemporary armchairs add additional seating space. A full bathroom off the living space has a cabin-like vibe, with knotty pine walls, a clean white vanity, and a tub/shower combo.
Bright Texas sunshine pours into the room from the glass French doors. Outside, a newly built deck space spans out over the boat deck and the canal below. Host a family dinner at the alfresco dining space, while a pastel pink sunset lights up the sky above you. In the afternoons, kick back out here with a cool drink while you work on your tan.
A Vintage Kitchen and Three Bedrooms
The bright, clean kitchen has a vintage feel— yet with all the modern conveniences. Wooden glass-front cabinets are mounted onto palm frond wallpaper, while the large window over the sink allows the natural light in. Coffee lovers rejoice— this home has a traditional coffee maker and a French press. There’s seating for four people at the bar, and a formal dining table has seating for eight.
Off the living area, a fun bunk room has a twin-over-twin bed and a queen-size bed. Up the spiral staircase, you’ll find two more bedrooms and a half bath. The first bedroom has a king-size bed draped in immaculate white linens, and access to a sun-drenched third-floor balcony overlooking the full deck below and the canal. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and looks out over the quiet neighborhood.
Bring Your Boat— And Your Fishing Gear
A covered boat dock makes the perfect spot for a leisurely afternoon of fishing— or launching kayaks into the canal. The barbeque area is shady and cool, and an outdoor shower is an absolute must after a day at the beach or pool. When it’s time to head out and explore, the Jamaica Beach access point and community pool are a short drive away. The Crab Shack is also conveniently located close to the west end restaurants and grocery stores. This super-charming, bohemian retreat is the perfect home base for a getaway to the Texas coast.

The Crab Shack is such a great place to relax, fish, soak in the sun and have a fun time with family! The house is super clean, beautifully decorated and well stocked with all you need for a perfect vacation. Swimming in the canal was a fun benefit of staying here as well as the Jamaica Beach community pool. We loved the massive deck and the beautiful views. The beach is super close and Galveston is only a short distance away. Chad and Natalie are really easy to communicate with and made check-in fast and simple. This is going to be a favorite of our family from now on and we definitely look forward to returning to the Crab Shack on our next Galveston get-away!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It was a charming little beach house with all the cute accessories. Perfect, quiet location. We will definitely be back!
Great place and close to beach. Would definitely stay again! Hosts were very accommodating to our requests for early check-in due to small kiddos! Thanks again!
House was very clean and easy to find. The kids had a awesome time swimming in the canal and playing with all the included toys. This house was amazing!
The Crab Shack was a great place to spend a memorable weekend with family! The house is just as inviting as pictured on line. It has great deck space and the space under the main deck at the water level has decorative lighting making it a beautiful setting at night. The interior of the house was clean and welcoming. The beds were comfortable for a good night’s rest and the living space allowed for cooking meals and game night with plenty of space for all activities. Natalie and Chad were very accommodating and responsive hosts, I would definitely stay at the Crab Shack again!
Great hosts and accommodations. Hosts are very attentive and follow up to ensure good experience. Beautiful peaceful location perfect for fun and relaxation.
We loved this place. Cozy, really well decorated and close to the beach. Excellent communication with hosts.
The Crab Shack is amazing! Just such a charming beach house! Cute decor! Wonderful beds, we all slept well! Great location, with a wonderful deck overlooking the canal. Perfect place to gather with family and friends day or night! Natalie and Chad are very available for any questions, great hosts! Everything you need for a perfect beach stay! Would love to stay here again!
So much better than pictures can portray! Breathtaking views, chic and stylish open floor plan, and more than enough space for our group. The outdoor space is BY FAR the best we’ve had staying in a house rentals! The breeze off of the canal was so refreshing. We entertained our guests over liking the canal and sunset with multi level porches, tons of chairs and tables. Floats, life jackets, a grill, & even pillows and towels provided! The owners were very easy to communicate with and super paid back- it was just an easy stay! We will be back soon ....our new favorite vacation spot is the Crab Shack!
Nice house and host.
