About Tim Tran

My wife and I own a restaurant in nearby Clear Lake and we have purchased another home closer to work. We have enjoyed this home for the past six years and we recently remodeled it. We wanted to share the beautiful sunrises and gorgeous views with others.

Tim Tran purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

1 - Beautiful ocean views of Galveston Bay.

2 - Only 2 minutes to walk to Kemah Boardwalk.

3 - 220 foot fishing pier with observation level and 360 degree view.

4 - Four Bedrooms and four Baths

5 - Family, Vacation, or Event - just have fun and relax

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most wonderful experience at this vacation house on Galveston Bay. Everything was beautiful - the house, the deck, the view - everything. And it is so close to the Kemah Boardwalk. We hope to make this an annual event.

Wonderful Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family and this home has the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor living space. Well appointed kitchen, comfortable beds and amazing views from the wrap around porch and both decks.

It is located right next to Kemah Boardwalk and within walking distance of quaint shops and fun beach themed bars/pubs. Galveston is a short 40 minute ride away

Mr.Tran is extremely helpful and very responsive.

We would highly recommend this property for a long, very comfortable, weekend stay with a large family.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect and close enough yet far away enough from the boardwalk to make it a great stay.

Excellent location excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This is the best rental property on the gulf coast. This house is the ultimate party house or place for a group of three families to just relax. The private fishing pier with night lights is a bonus. Lastly, the upstairs bar has everything you need for a happy hour including a sink with running water. The owner is great and easy to deal with. By the way i just want to mention if you are planning a getaway with more than ten people, contact this owner because he has several properties within a stones throw of this property. (All properties are on the water, however are not set up like a party house like this property). This owner is very easy to work with.

Amazing place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed an amazing fourth of july weekend. The fireworks show was amazing and the board walk was tons of fun. The area has a number of great bars to check out. The house was amazing the rooms were all clean. The only complaint was the dishes were dirty when we got there but we popped them in to the dishwasher and problem solved.
