Guestbook comments from the owner

By Billie (Houston, TX)

We enjoy getting away for the weekend with our two grown daughters and the grandchildren; this one is in the favorites! Everyone enjoyed themselves the young and the old.......fishing, feeding the ducks or bird watching on the upper deck.......I'm sure we'll return with all!



Fantastic Getaway!,



This is the perfect place to go when you need to chill by the water. You got the boat dock to fish off or just sit and watch the birds. Very cozy accommodations. Love the decks to watch the sunsets or the moon and stars at night. The lower deck is nice, shady and cool with a sea breeze during the day. I definitely recommend it!

Great getaway not far from Houston

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Kemah Coveside getaway because it looked so peaceful and relaxing and the home did not disappoint us! We spent most of our time on the deck watching the sea life, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We had so much fun chilling and grilling. And, the Kemah Boardwalk is just minutes away for great shopping, restaurants and boat watching. This is a great place to stay!

This location was very fun! Our trip included an aduly family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very easy to find and worked well with the needs of our family. The dock and outside deck were fun in the evening and the rope lighting added to the night experience. The home was very clean and read to go when we arrived. We took two trips into Kemah and one to Galveston, all close to this home.

Great place for weekend or longer

  • 4 of 5

We were lucky enough to find this little get-away during the last six months that our new home was being built in the area. This is a fun little cabin on the water that made us feel like we were on vacation everyday. Very clean and cozy on a great location in Kemah.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We came with family to visit Space Center. Kemah boardwalk, Museum of Natural Science, Museum of Art, Zoo and Aquarium. This house worked great as location to relax once we got back from touring the city and kids would relax while we made dinner in full kitchen with every thing we needed. some bonuses were the easy fishing for Catfish and Croakers at night. We litterly got a bite on every cast. There is also a bonus room for kidos to play,

Fun family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place! We enjoyed fishing right off our own private deck. Thank you so much for allowing us to have a wonderful family get together. The upper deck is so spacious. We found a coffee/pastry shop that has a family of capuchin monkeys ! My granddaughters had a fun fun time. Wish we could have stayed longer.

What the doctor should order!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd or 4th stay at Coveside and every experience just gets better. My best friend and I had the best time. We relaxed on the deck, fished and hit the Boardwalk (4) miles away!!! So convenient.

Megan was absolutely amazing before during and after our trip! She called and found us a market to clean any fish we caught, recommended awesome restaurants. Renee texted to make sure we made it to the house and check to see if we needed anything. The customer service is always outstanding!!!

The house is comfy and close to everything.

I was hoping to fish at night by dock lights. There is no "fishing" light, but we still managed to catch fish our second night!! So much fun!!!

I really love this place and travel over 10 hours from West Texas to stay here.
