About Donald (Don) or Nancy Greenstein
Don and Nancy Greenstein: We are an educated and retired (33 years married) couple that live year round in the main residence on the property. Don is a native Houstonian whose family summer vacationed in the Galveston Bay area since the 1950s, Nancy is a retired business-owner from Ft. Wayne, IN. We have lived in the Galveston Bay area together for many years. The area is private, romantic and relaxed; the climate is semi-tropical with warm bay breezes year round. We enjoy boating, dining, golfing and family activities on the property and on Galveston Bay.

Why Donald (Don) or Nancy Greenstein chose Bacliff
Don is a Houston native and has vacationed in the Bacliff/Bayview/Kemah, TX area all his life. I love the area's climate, water entertainment access and relaxed style of living. The seafood dining in the area is unmatched in the state of Texas. The productivity of offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the Galveston coast is unmatched in the U.S. The South Texas coast is the premier site saltwater entertainment mecca of the Houston area and South eastern Texas. This property has the best view (270 degree) of the Galveston Bay and the Houston Ship Channel that runs though it. Annually, on Fridays in the months of June and July there are waterfront hour-long fireworks displays that are visible from our waterfront decks. The wildlife (sea gulls, pelicans, porpoises) behavior displays from our decks are phenomenal.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are only a few waterfront locations to stay on Galveston bay: ours is one of the most popular in the area. It is competitively priced and combines privacy, seclusion and cozy accommodation for a weekend get-away for busy working couples, honey-moon and anniversary couples either for short or extended stays. The panoramic views of Galveston Bay are exclusive to this property. We have operated this vacation rental for ten of the fifteen years we have lived here to rave (mostly five-star) reviews from locals and out-of-town travelers alike.

House was easy to find- just 4 miles from the Kemah Boardwalk. Space was compact but very comfortable. Everything you might need was there. Neighborhood was very quiet and safe. Nice balcony to sit out on and watch the sunrise and sunset. Easy 30 minute drive to Galveston. Would definitely stay again!
Very cozy and cute place
This was a very clean and well kept place. It may be small for most but it was cozy and has a great porch, deck and pier all to yourself. Met the owners who were super nice. Parking is limited, just enough room to park an SUV but all in all this was a very nice stay. Great local area not too far from the city.
Thank you for your positive review. We hope you'll visit the cottage again soon.

We needed a break and this little place was just what we needed! It was in a quiet neighborhood and provided all the comforts of home. We only had a couple nights to get away and we decided to eat out for our meals. We did not have to travel far for great food which was really nice! It has a beautiful deck that provides a great ocean view which we enjoyed with our morning coffee! We will definitely be back!
Great weekend getaway
We took a quick weekend to this property and we weren’t disappointed. We absolutely thoroughly enjoyed fishing from the dock and the proximity to the Kemah boardwalk, town, shopping and even Galveston was perfect! There wasn’t anything else we needed. Thanks for a great stay!
The property was as advertised, it provided for us the relaxing getaway that we were looking for. The porch overlooking the bay was refreshing and we took every advantage to enjoy it. And the location of the property provided great access to fine dining.
A Small Slice of Heaven
This charming, little cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway. Tidy, cozy, and peaceful, this 2-story bungalow has everything you need for your stay. The parking spot (on the street) is on the small side. Don and Nancy have made this spot inviting and special.
