Overview

Flour Bluff House Rental Photos and Description

Bayfront property with 330 foot fishing pier and side pier

Get ready to escape to our amazing 2BR/2BA Laguna Madre Bayhouse, which has the best sunrises and sunsets in the Coastal Bend and spectacular water views! Our bayhouse has a comfy beach style with plenty of lounge space in our living room. The living room has Digital cable Hi-Definition TV so while you are on vacation you can still catch all your favorite shows or sporting events. The living room also has a futon sofa for extra guests. Our kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs, with an open flow into the living room, so the cook never has to miss a minute of the action. This space is perfect for entertaining friends and family with the dining room, kitchen and living room all connected. Our two bedrooms are outfitted with bunks beds for friends and family to hit the hay after a long day out on the bay or beach. The first bedroom has two twin beds with one full sized bed under a twin bed and the other with two twin beds. The second bedroom has one bunk bed with a full sized bed under a twin. If you are anything like us, most of your time is going to be spent hanging out on our great front porch overlooking the Laguna Madre or on our 330 foot pier (please note that there are no lights at the end of the pier), just steps away from our front door. You can tie your boat up on the canal pier or just float in the water with friends and enjoy the sun!

With adjacent wetlands, there is some of the best bird watching in all of the Coastal Bend. Additionally, kids love the crabbing pier on the side of the house and everyone loves the private 330 foot front pier into the Laguna Madre bay. Bluff's Landing Marina is the location of Laguna Reef Restaurant and Bluff's Landing Marina, where you can find all of your fishing needs. Laguna Reef serves typical Gulf Coast fare and has a ‘U-Catchem, We Cookem’ option! South Texas Bait and Boat Launch is the launch ramp that is on the same canal as our side pier. CCA/TPWD Fish Hatchery is the state's first saltwater fish hatchery (only 2 miles away) and a fun place to explore with family and friends.

Each reservation includes applicable taxes, a cleaning fee and a Property Damage Protection insurance policy.

About Spence Collins

I am in the commercial real estate business in Austin and attracted to the investment potential of this area.

Spence Collins purchased this house in 2005

Why Spence Collins chose Corpus Christi

I bought this property for its world-class fishing along with the ability for me to sit on the end of the pier or front porch taking in the relaxing bay breeze. Very easy access to the beach, retail support services but yet somewhat remote.

What makes this house unique

The Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay are world class fisheries.

Nice, quiet, quaint get away

  • 5 of 5

Found at the end of the trail, this little cottage is a great get away spot. Located far enough away from it all to be stone quiet both night and day but close enough to get to anywhere you want to head off to. The house sports two bedrooms and two full baths. Nice living area with a large ceiling fan and HD TV. Large cooking and dining area with everything you need to cook a nice meal.

Very nice - we will be back.

Owner's Response: To my future renters, you, too, can enjoy the tremendous bayviews from the front bedroom, kitchen, and living room just as this renter did. Very peaceful place.

Great view and good fishing spot.

  • 4 of 5

My family rented the house for 3 nights. The place was very clean and the fishing pier was great. I would definitely rent this place again as we had a great time. The only reason I rated this as a 4 star instead of 5 was because the small boat dock and fish cleaning station were in a poor condition with a part of the dock falling apart however it didn't stop us to have a great vacation. We enjoyed it and would love to rent it again.

Great house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you would need for a relaxing weekend on the Texas Gulf Coast. Spence reached out the day prior to our arrival and shared with us where and what to fish with. He also let us know where the best places to shop and dine were. I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to spend a weekend fishing the Corpus Christi area.

Excellant Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bayhouse. Everything is there for you and is so handy, and it's close to all the area's interest. We have stayed there on other occasions and would not think of staying anywhere else when visiting the bay area. The views are just wonderful, morning sunrise and evening sunsets over the are just beautiful The house is nice, quiet and comfortable with all the convenience of home. It's like a home away from home. I would recommend Spence Bayhouse to all who are going to stay in this area.

We love it,

RJ

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Everything described about the house and facilities was great. Actually better than what was expected. Had a few problems with the A/C trying to keep up with the demands of the summer heat but otherwise it was really really nice. My family is going back to Corpus next year and will definitely try and reserve this location again.

This area of the Laguna Madre Bay is highly regarded for kite-boarding and windsurfing. Also, adjacent to the house is a wetlands area that offers terrific birding. You will view a large variety of coastal birds here.
