Stunning waterfront 'BayHouse' on Galveston Bay, just 35 minutes from fourth largest city in the US. This classic bay house once owned by an astronaut is a wonderful quiet getaway house, minutes away from great outdoor activities, like a 1000 foot municipal pier, Frisbee golf course, great fishing, sailing, and endless nautical activities. Just five minutes from Kemah Boardwalk and the NASA SPACE CENTER. Great seafood to catch, or buy from great seafood markets, or take in one of the areas many fine restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Jogging trails, nature trails, bike trails and lots of boat watching at many nearby marinas. City water park, and Frisbee course around the corner. Beautiful bird watching, several sites nearby of the Great Coastal Birding Trail, come enjoy the pelicans, black skimmers, and osprey.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Extended Stay

  • 5 of 5
I had the opportunity to stay at the Galveston Bay house for the last month of spring as I house-hunted in the area. I was fortunate to experience fantastic weather and a great breeze off of the bay kept things nice and cool. The property is conveniently located to the Kemah Boardwalk, old Seabrook, and Pasadena. You cannot quite see Kemah from the deck, but if you walk to the edge of the property on the bay you can. There are many types of birds and other critters (raccoons, etc.) that hang out near the bay and my wife caught a glimpse of dolphins swimming nearby one day. The beach at El Jardin was not that great, but it could have been time of year.

The unit was nicely appointed with new appliances and such, but don't expect all of the bells and whistles that you might find in a newer home or condo. There was plenty of space in the closets for clothes and luggage. The owners were very helpful and accommodating.

My two dogs had a blast; they loved hanging out on the deck. I brought a baby gate to keep them from going down the stairs (would recommend bringing one if you have small children). The Seabrook City Park is located a little over a quarter of a mile from the property. It was easy to walk the dogs there daily.

Keep in mind when making plans, you will have to climb stairs. The house sits on piers!

Wonderful escape

My family and I were very happy with our stay. We had the fireworks display on the 4th and the sunrise over the bay in the morning. It was truly a place that all of us love and enjoyed. We hope to come again.

Fantastic visit

Our family of 7 (6 adults, 1 child) spent a wonderful 3-day weekend at this house. The location is perfect--easy to get to and close to all the activities at the Kemah boardwalk. The house is beautiful and well laid out. The amenities were first class, and we had everything we needed. This was, by far, the best VRBO rental experience we have had, and I hope to return soon.

The house was exactly as described. Our group liked having the kitchen and laundry facilities in the home. The view of the water from the deck was gorgeous~wished we could have spent more time enjoying the view!

Excellent home on the bay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a regatta in November '12. The home was very well kept and very well equipped. The master bedroom was very spacious with a great view of the bay. The second bedroom had a queen bed and was very nice. The 3rd bedroom had bunk beds and was nice as well. Plenty of seating in the living room for 6-8 people seating comfortably. Just blocks from the Kemah boardwalk and minutes to all restaurants in the area. We plan on staying each regatta that we attend in the bay area. The owner was always available for any issues, although we did not have any.
