House 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, waterfront
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

We had a great time! At one point there were 40 family members, including my 87 y/o grandmother who had not seen all her family together in quite some time. We bar b qued, had a crayfish boil, fished, played live acoustic music on the amazing deck. When we come back to Kemah, we will definitely visit Tim's place again.
Wonderful property with fabulous views and great owner
We rented the Kemah Seaside Retreat to host our son's rehearsal dinner.....wanted a fun, relaxed atmosphere, with a view to have a party for about 40. This house was perfect for the party and super comfortable for the 10 of us who stayed there. Tim, the owner , was always super helpful. About a month before our event, he began construction on a new upper room and reassured us that it be completed in time and it was! He put a ping pong table up there with stools facing the boardwalk area and the kids loved it! We enjoyed the many different decks to choose from and the dock with lights at night was a great hang out spot. The roller coaster right next door was NOT an issue.....the sounds of it going by just blended into the sounds of the day and night by the end of the first afternoon. You can walk to everything in Kemah from the home's location and the house is equipped with absolutely everything you could possible need. We made the very best choice when we decided to book this special home for such a big event for our family.
Stay and Play
Perfect location. Very nice and accommodating owner. Great outdoor area, deck & bar area was awesome, nice long pier. House was comfortable and had everything needed. Only thing that could be improved was the downstairs bedroom had a musty or mildew smell and the bedroom upstairs did not get very cool. If we had stayed in the summer we could not have used the upstairs bedroom. Overall a great place to stay and we would definitely stay here again.
Downstairs bedroom and bathroom need a good cleaning and some work
The location was perfect with a beautiful setting. The top 2 floors of the house were great. The extra bedroom downstairs that was supposed to have been remodeled was hot, damp and smelled moldy. The sheets on the bed smelled soured. I have allergies and even with medication came home with a cough and headache. The downstairs bathroom is so small that you can't turn around. Very inconvenient.
I am sorry that you had issue with the ground floor bedroom. I have addressed the cleanliness with our cleaning staff and I am sure it will not happen for our future guests. The damping issue is the common problem for houses that are near the water especially during those days when there are lots of rain. We usually keep the A/C running all the time which would help but does not completely eliminate the problem.
The house couldn't be situated better if you want to enjoy the waterfront and the action of the boardwalk. I was a little worried about being so close to the roller coaster, but it wasn't an issue at all; it sounded a lot like surf whooshing in and out. Our group enjoyed the stay.
The house is in the perfect location. Fireworks from the deck we’re off the chain the house is very well-stocked with everything that you’ll need for your stay. We will definitely book this house again.
Gorgeous vacation rental home located on Galveston Bay and next to the Kemah Boardwalk entertainment complex.
