Bacliff House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Beautiful family owned bay house fronting Galveston Bay near Clear Lake/Seabrook/Kemah/Bacliff. The main house comfortably sleeps 6 in double/twin beds in 2 rooms. Back houses sleep 3 to 4 persons each in double/twin and trundle beds. Sunrises are awesome over the bay which are directly viewed from octoganal windows of the home.

The property has 175 feet of water frontage with excellent access and views of Galveston Bay and a 300 foot fishing pier. The homes are ideal for family oriented gatherings, small company retreats, and church retreats. Please refer to the ULR link on this listing for more photos of the property.

Beautiful home and property.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the main home and first floor apartment. Both were very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. There were 10 in our party and there was plenty of room for everyone. We really enjoyed the dock and porch swing on the dock to watch the boats. We look forward to returning to this home for future family gatherings.

Wonderful property - photos can't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos of the property only begin to convey it's qualities: lovely house with everything in it imaginable for a bayside vacation. The other bldg's are the same. Well appointed and maintained. Huge lot, great pier and lots of room!

The owner went out of his way to make sure everything was in place for our mini family reunion. Would definitely recommend to large families or even 2 couples as the main house is well set up for that.

The perfect house for vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to share a week end with 2 families of our friends. From kids (3 years old) to teenagers and adults, everybody spent wonderful time in this house.

Clay provided a very warm welcome, he makes you feel like home within few minutes.

The garden is fabulous, sea is at the end of the garden.

For sure, we will come back !

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

Last week we treated Mom (78) to a trip back to the bay she grew up on and oh what a WONDERFUL time we had. Upon arrival we met Clay and his delightful family for a tour of the property and immediately felt right at home. The home is well equiped, very clean and well maintained - more importantly the home says kick your shoe off, stay awhile relax and have fun. And that is just what we (all 16 of us) did. The seperate apartments gives everyone their own private retreat and and when traveling with a family ranging from 78 years old to 2 years old that was just what we needed. During the day we stayed on the pier swimming, fishing, watching the dolphins follow the shrimp boats, and just relaxing enjoying the beautiful view. Our evenings were spent laughing as we tried our hand at volleyball, horseshoes and badmittom, if laughter is good for your health we must be a pretty healthy bunch after watching those matches! The Boardwalk fun and the food good but our memories will be of our stay at the bay house. We could not have asked for anything more, the house, the view, and the amenities were just as described in the listing. We plan on returning again.

Great place for our purposes. We had what I called a summer camp for the children and they could invite their parents and grandparents. The house was very nice and functional for serving meals to 20 or so people. The pier, fishing, kiaking and swing set were big hits. My bunch are used to swimming pools and were reluctant to swim in murky bay water. The main house has two bedrooms, one with 4 beds which we used for a dormatory for the kids. You really need the two back houses for couples. They are both nice. The owner and a relative across the street were very accomodating and helpful. The Bayhouse has wonderful blackout/storm shades on the entire house. The grounds are spacious and well maintained. Of the many VRBO houses I have rented, this one has too much of the owner's personal things in it. When I was checking out, not knowing what each of my family brought, we might have taken some of the owner's stuff by mistake.

We did appreciated the abundance of beach towels for our use - so we did not use all the ones we brought. It is a great place and we are considering using it again next year.

Great location for groups of church leader retreats

  • 5 of 5

Our Church Council Pastors, Deacons and Elders attended. 14 slept very comfortably, and 6 others came the following day for the retreat. Great cozy atmosphere, comfortable and clean facilities, kitchen worked just fine for our meals. Our church has used this site 2 times now and highly recommend your smaller church groups try this place out.
