About Sheila Macpherson
We have been long time residents in the state of Montana. For several years we have been visiting Texas family and have just been falling in love with the Jamaica Beach area! In 2014 we decided we wanted to spend extended time in this area and found our Jamaica Gem. We will now be able to spend time with all our family in both states. We look forward to sharing our home with you in hopes you will make great memories on your Jamaica Beach Vacation!

This is our fourth (or is it our fifth?) year to stay at the Jamaica Gem so, needless to say, we consider it our home away from home when we are vacationing on the island. Our 14 year old twin boys and our 2 dogs always enjoy our time here. The JG has everything we need... whether we plan on staying a few days or an entire week. Sheila is always a pleasure to work with and always makes us feel welcome. Each year we come back to the JG we stay a little longer than the previous year. My son is waiting for the day when we spend all summer there and claim the JG as our "summer home." Thank you again, Sheila... we'll see you again next year!
Beautiful, clean canal vacation rental. Lots of love put into this property
We had so much fun at this home. From our daily beach times to kayaking on the canal. Our family truly loved this home. We will be coming back for sure!
Thanks so much for the nice review! I've said it before but its families like yours that makes it easy to keep it clean! We have been very fortunate. Can't wait to have this family return :)
Can't wait to go back.
They go the extra mile to remember everything we have forgot. Having the downstairs separated was a plus for our family.
We had an awesome time making memories with family. The house is beautiful and super clean. We will definitely return!
Time with Family is the Best! Thank You for choosing Jamaica Gem :)
Everything was wonderful at the Gem. Clean fresh lovely house. We had a wonderful time over looking the water.
Thanks for choosing Jamaica Gem, hope to have you stay again!
Great property and quiet location
The only thing keeping this from five stars is that the up stairs and down are not connected. It didn't slow us down, but wasn't what we expected. I'm sure it's in the notes somewhere, so no fault of Sheila. She was great to work with also! We'd stay here again if in the area for sure!
Thanks so much for the kind review and we are happy you had a great stay with your family! Regarding the upstairs/downstairs sorry it was a surprise. It is listed in the property description but I did go back and list it as extra information in the bedroom section as well. I appreciate your feedback. And Yes I do hope you come back your family were great guests of Jamaica Gem!
