About the property

2 Bedroom 2-1/2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 7)

At the bay... We live by the currents, plan by the tides, & follow the sun!!!

This beautiful canal front home in Laguna Harbor is very comfortable and relaxing! It is located on a culdesac with no through traffic. You can watch the ships go up and down the intracoastal waterway and see the dolphins swim in the canal! You don't have to go far to catch fish... just cast your line from the boardwalk directly behind the house! The beach is close by & so are all of the great restaurants on the peninsula. The house is very close to the Bolivar/Galveston ferry as well for easy access to tons of activities, historical sites, shops, entertainment & restaurants!

The interiors are wonderfully furnished by Baxter design of The Woodlands. Rustic architectural features, including wood floors, exposed rough cedar beams and shiplap ceilings, are a nice contrast to the clean design details. The 3rd floor is a large open room that includes the family room area, the breakfast area, the kitchen and a powder bathroom. A full kitchen with a long island bar is open to the family room & wet bar, this is perfect for cooking while you visit with your friends/family.

But... the best feature of this house is the nature at your doorstep! There are 4 porches with wonderful views of amazing sunrises over the canal waters and sunsets over the bay! There is an unobstructed view of Bolivar’s scenic natural reserve and the intracoastal waterway from both downstairs & the 2 upstairs decks. You can also enjoy the spectacular view of the starry clear night sky.

The Downstairs has an open air courtyard that often gets a nice breeze off the water. There is a charcoal grill in the courtyard & a table and chairs in the covered living area making these outdoor living spaces ideal for cooking out.

This is our home and we have equipped it with anything that we might want during our stay. We love it here and find it very peaceful and relaxing. We hope that you will do the same!

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful usual. This is our third stay!

The house is very comfortable and clean. It is just as you see in the pictures. We caught lots of fish and crabs. My granddaughter caught a monster black drum. So large that her Dad threw him back in the water.

We are looking forward to our next stay.

This location is ideal for anyone seeking a relaxing retreat! The spectacular views at the peaceful waters edge make this bay house the perfect location for any escape. With fishing just behind the house and Galveston only a ferry ride away, you can enjoy the best of both worlds! Great local food and beaches are close by but the best part is right in the back yard! Historic Galveston boasts countless activities from golfing to shopping and so much in between. Crystal Beach and the Bolivar Peninsula are the best kept secret with great local hang outs and vast beaches.

There are a few attractions that you just cannot miss during your stay! These are listed in detail at the bay house.
