About Linda

My family and I have lived in the Houston area for the last 30 years and have been going to Kemah for almost 20 years now. We both have stressful jobs and have used this property as our 'therapy' to make the short drive to get away and relax. Going boating around the Clear Lake and Galveston Bay has been one of our favorite things to do as a family.

Linda purchased this house in 1995

Why Linda chose Texas Gulf Coast

This has been a wonderful vacation home for our family over the last 15 years. It was built in the 1920's and was moved to this location in the 70's. A few years back this home was completely renovated. We are not able to enjoy it as often as we would like due to our busy schedules, so that's why we decided to let other families enjoy the home as much as we do! We love Kemah because it's a very active community, there is never be a lack of activities for the whole family to enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Our home is 1 block from all the Kemah Boardwalk activities, that has something great for the whole family, from an amusement park, games, and tons of delicious restaurants.

Nice cottage! Thanks for sharing! Clean and updated with a great view of the bay from the large deck and from living area. Convenient location to shops and boardwalk. Linda was very prompt in booking and responding to emails. We even were able to get early check-in. Roller coaster was no problem. Trash noise started early but it was tolerated. Neighboring rental had a large party but loud music stopped at 10:00. We would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Great place!! Right next to water, and Kemah Boardwalk. Great views!! Perfect for family with kids!! Very nice kitchen and living space. Huge bedrooms plenty of space. TV and entertainment Ctr is awesome, although remote is impossible to use. Need simpler way or instructions. Garbage trucks in morning not a big deal. We were up early for baseball games. Noise is not loud. Thx so much!!! Had a blast!!!
