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.
Location: Jamaica Beach, Texas
Community Amenities: Guests have access to the Jamaica Beach community pool (open Memorial Day thru Labor Day – $5 per person), and city park.

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.

This was a last minute getaway and was booked the same day we checked in and Natalie and Chad quickly responded to our booking. The communication was clear and precise. We didn't expect that the location was pretty far from the town but works great for us because it was quiet and relaxing. The beach was just across the road! The house itself has so much to enjoy with, by just being by the water itself, you can fish, have a boat, kayak, or just enjoying the sunset or sunrise at their deck. My kids didnt even bother just staying at home. Kitchen has everything you need for cooking and their recommendations for local restaurants are on point! Ample bedspace if you are a big group too. I am very particular with bathrooms and all were clean and nice. Our family will definitely be coming back to the crab shack. Great host. great house!
Great house, great hospitality, clean, quiet and relaxing.
the house was amazing natalieand Chad were amazing and the house of was spectacular, but one of the best things is that my cars battery died and I asked natalie and Chad for help and in no time they send some one to give me jump start. they are so helpful and just great people thanks again guys my wife was extremely happy with the house and yall.
Very clean and comfortable home. Being on the water was awesome and couldn’t have asked for a better location. Highly recommended.
Place was amazing! Great deck & sunsets. I’ll comeback anytime. ☀️
Just like a beachouse should be !
The place and location were great.
We would certainly stay at the Crab Shack on future trips to Galveston. The house was clean and cozy and well stocked with all the amenities we should need.
Absolutely perfect place to relax with a couple of families. Very homey feel with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Also in a wonderful location right on the canal. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks for your hospitality Natalie & Chad.
The Crab Shack was super cute and we enjoyed our stay! We brought our dog and he loved the yard! Just wish we had booked an extra day!
