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.

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.

Wedding/Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 4 days to attend a wedding at the Boardwalk, located conveniently right next door. The listing description of the location was accurate and the photos listed were exact. This property is gorgeous. We did not want to leave. It was beautifully maintained, clean and welcoming. The owner was wonderful to work with, easy to contact and friendly. He even left complimentary goodies and water bottles in our frig upon arrival. The rooms in the home were spacious, bathrooms were large, kitchen was beautiful and well stocked with every appliance and utensils you would need. Plenty of towels and linens and a great laundry room, if you needed. Golf cart was a big amenity for us. There were so many cute boutiques, bars and specialty shops within walking distance. And we have never meant such friendly people. It was so awesome to have the boardwalk, literally next door, with great places to eat from a pizzeria to fine dining. We enjoyed the Cadillac Bar, Bubba Gump Seafood Co., and Landry's just to name a few. Wonderful traditional Mexican cuisine within walking distance. I would highly recommend this property to any of my friends and family. It was so relaxing to wake up to the winds coming off the bay and gorgeous sunrises every morning. The house was so spacious, we had 9 people staying there and several family members visiting. The outside decks and tiki bar were a huge hit with everyone. The decks, observation decks and dock were amazing. I can not say enough about this house. It was an honor to stay there. I have never stayed at such a stunning property before. There was not one complaint. The owner does an excellent job of maintaining and keeping this house clean and well stocked with everything you need. We were beyond satisfied and would recommend this property highly to anyone interested. The views off the bay at sunrise are a dream. There are so many restaurants, rides, shopping that you will stay busy or if you choose just sit back and relax. The Boardwalk Bullet the roller coaster is in view from the house and you can hear it when it is in operation, but it was not even a factor for us. If anything it was really cool and it stops running at a really decent hour. We also were able to have our little Yorkie with us and he loved the walks and the great yard. I would go back to stay at this property anytime. We all miss this house already - it really made you feel special to be there!!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We planned our whole wedding around the house and the tiki bar! We are in our 40's so the majority of attendees were our age. We had around 60 people and everyone loved it... There was plenty of room for people to gather without feeling claustrophobic.

Tim was accommodating and really just the nicest man. We would definitely stay again!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
First and foremost, the owner is a delight to rent from. He goes above and beyond to ensure that the renters needs and wants are met, and he is extremely accomadating. We couldn't have asked for a better individual to rent from, and it was a great pleasure gettingto work with him. Secondly, the house itself is superb. The house is very warm and welcoming, extremely clean, and truly a fun place for people of all ages. The balcony, view of the bay, and pier are astounding. Third, the 2 minute walk to the Kemah Boardwalk is fantastic, and the golf cart provided is also an excellent bonus. Therefore, look no further if you are wanting to stay in the best place in Kemah. You have arrived. Our family will definitely be back again soon for another fabulous vacation!!!
