READ OUR REVIEWS......FANTASTIC VISIT 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.

Why Fred chose Texas Gulf Coast

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

This house was wonderful- quiet and relaxing. Loved watching the dolphins swimming in the bay from the porch. We hope to make a return visit soon. Thank You.

Nice home, great view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this comfortable home, great water view from house, lower patio and deck. Great yard for kids to run around in. Close to attractions like the Space Center and Kemah boardwalk. Recommend Seabrook Waffle Co., Neptune Subs, and Habanjero Tacos, all were delicious! A little disappointed in the fee for El Jardin beach (very near house and recommended by owner), for our size group pretty pricy for just an hour or two. Did find free, nicer public beaches within 15 minutes that were virtually empty on weekdays, though packed on weekends. But overall loved our time at this property, would definitely recommend!
