Overview

Kemah House Rental Photos and Description

This beautiful vacation rental home overlooks Galveston Bay in Kemah, Texas. It is one of only two homes available for rentals that is located within 3 minutes walking distance of the wildly popular Kemah Boardwalk entertainment complex. The home will easily sleep 10 people and features a recent remodeling of the bathrooms and kitchen. The primary home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a detached guest room with bath resides on the ground floor. Therefore there are 4 total Bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There is a 220 foot private pier available for those who wish to go crabbing or fishing or both. Five crab traps are located on the pier and there is an elevated observation deck at the end of the pier with a 360 degree view. One of the unique aspects of this home is the 2600 square foot wrap-around wooden deck - complete with outdoor bar. The deck also attaches to the ocean side balconies and the balconies are connected with a spiral staircase. This is a gorgeous home with spectacular views. Great for fishing, relaxing or entertaining.

Private Pier

The private pier is 220 feet long and extends out into one of the best fishing areas in Kemah. The end of the pier, known as the T-head, has an upper observation area for 360 degree viewing.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Even in the rain, I enjoyed myself. The accommodations was superb and the property had everything you can think of to make your stay like home. I will recommend this property to everyone... The only thing I ask, "please take care of it, so I can come back to the same property as I remembered..."

Thanks

Best place to stay in kemah!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could ask for and the location can't be beat. We caught speckled trout from the private pier, took the golf cart to nearby restaurants, and the boardwalk is in walking distance. There are many places inside and outside of the house to simply relax and enjoy the view.

Exquisite Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this home before and I loved it so much I rented it again this year. I love that Kemah Boardwalk is just a 3 min walk away so there is always something to do. The kids loved fishing on the pier. Waking up every morning eating breakfast on the large patio was so relaxing. Upon arrival Tim had water and dessert for us inside the refrigerator. The owner is wonderful and so is his home. I love love love this place so much I think I want to make it a yearly family get together!

We love this home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this home and our family and friends love it!!! The location is perfect for kids and our teen children love it because they can walk to boardwalk alone and enjoy the rides and attractions all day long. The home is equipped with everything you could need and the atmosphere is perfect!

My oldest son who is 16 spends most of his time fishing off the pier and catches some of the largest Red Fish I have ever seen!! I have 4 children, 2 teens and 2 infants and I think this is the perfect get away for my family!!

Oh, the fresh air !!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a week or a weekend getaway. Several of us got up early to watch the sunrise - hot coffee on the bay-facing porch, birds searching for fish, calm water and gentle breezes. October/November must be the best times to be here because it was never hot or humid, and we were outside most of the time, even during the football games on Saturday.

Great house too. Fully stocked and well designed. Much better than putting the group in separate hotel rooms.

We will stay here again.
