Spectacular view from the balcony and living room. The condo faces Clearlake and Clear Creek passes between the building and the Nassau Bay Wildlife Peninsula. There are smallish wetland areas bordering the creek and between the building and Clearlake. Many kinds of aquatic wildlife visible from the balcony.
Bedroom furniture updated fall of 2012.

The condo started out as primary residence. But now has become a vacation spot for friends and family.
We have enjoyed the spectacular view and enjoy watching the boating families coming and going on the creek. The condo was upgraded before we bought it. So carpet, tile, faucets, bathroom are all new.
We stayed in the condo for two months (Jan-Feb 2017). We were very pleased with the location. The building, while old ,was well maintained.
The unit, however, was in need of some maintenance. All of the window screens need to be replaced as they were either missing or didn't work and the door to the balcony was in need of new gaskets as air "whistled" through it. Additionally, the living room furniture was substandard. The couch was worn out and was covered with bed sheets to cover up the wear. The recliner was in poor shape. The bedroom furniture was fine. I would recommend to bring your own bath linens as the ones provided were thread bare. The bathtub faucet was very difficult to turn on as you needed to pull very strenuously to operate. Although the microwave did work, the turntable was broken. The cable TV system was unreliable and needed to be re-booted by total disconnection in order for it to operate. This happened a lot.
We felt that the size of the condo was too small for us to spend two months away from home.
Overall, the location was terrific, the unit was clean and inexpensive and the owners were non-intrusive.
I stayed at the condo for two months over the past year and really enjoyed my stay each time. Penny was always really thoughtful and very helpful- she was always very willing to answer questions and make sure me and my roommates had everything we needed. The condo itself is very clean, has all the kitchen and bathroom supplies you might need and is very well-kept. The room has a pretty view of the lake and the entire place has a very peaceful, quiet atmosphere. I liked to go walking around the lake as the sun was setting in the evenings when I had time. There's also a pool and a small work out room in the back of the complex that was nice to have. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
This condo is close to everything and in a very quiet residential area. It's clean and everything you need is there; like staying at a friends place, and Penny is really nice and helpful. The balcony is a great place to sit and enjoy the sunset or anytime of day. We never even heard another neighbor, but the few we met in the elevator were really friendly. If we needed to be in the area again I would absolutly stay there again.
This is a great little getaway if you're looking to visit Kemah and want to be close to Galveston and Houston without all the tourists. The condo is small, but if it's just the two of you or on your own, you have plenty of space. We had our 16yr. old son and a friend in the living room on the sofa sleeper (and our own twin inflatable), but the sofa was not the most comfortable - but did the trick for the short 3 days. Penny and her husband are a joy and very interested in making sure you have a good trip. I had to text her once for wifi info and she was quick to respond. The view is very nice...but would've liked more sturdy chairs on the patio to sit out there longer and watch the boats. The area is very quiet and off the main street so little to no traffic - very secure with a gate code for the parking lot and the main door. The kitchen is very well appointed and there are many "odds and ends" in the cabinets and drawers that you can probably find what you forgot by looking. We enjoyed the washer/dryer in the unit for a last minute need. The bedroom is simple but has the closet and drawer space you need for longer trips. The couch is a little worn on the cushions, but we put a blanket over it for the daytime and were fine! Again...great little hideaway that is such a great buy...we were happy with the place and the owners and would rent again if it were just my husband and I!
I originally rented the condo for one month, but ended up staying two months because I didn't want to leave! First of all, location is great. You have views over the Lake, the condo is gated so you feel safe, it is convenient to Kemah and NASA areas, and there are 2 grocery stories in close proximity. In the summer, I read out by the pool, which is right on a mini harbor.
The kitchen has everything you could need and Penny stocked some teas and coffee in the cupboard for me to use. Penny and her husband were always fast to respond to any questions I had and made me feel at home immediately.
I would highly recommend this place for any short or extended stay in the area =)
We had a wonderful time. The condo was very clean, quiet, and romantic. The pictures don't do this place justice. Great updated kitchen and bathroom! Owners live down the hall. This was very convenient when the smoke detector battery got low and began to beep. We left for dinner and it had been replaced by the time we got back. Great location. we spent time in kemah and clear lake. it only took minutes to get to both places. We will definitely be back ! Thanks Penny and hubby!
