                            My son had a baseball tournament at Big Leage Dreams, which was just minutes away from this beautiful home. Not only was the location very convenient, but the layout and surrounding landscape made us feel as if we were on a vacation. After the games we were able to come home and grill dinner followed by a nice campfire in the oversized firepit. Last but not least, the owners of this home are extra accomodating and eager to help in any way possible to make your stay enjoyable. We probably won't wait till the next tournament at Big Leage Dreams before booking our next stay!!!

                            We rented the house for my sister's wedding weekend, and we loved it! It was so comfortable and convenient! The owners are very pleasant and nice to do business with. We plan on renting this house again in the future.

                            This was the first time we have ever stayed in a VRBO and our experience was more than what we expected. The house is beautiful, comfortable and spacious. Plenty of room for us, our two daughters and their little families; total of six adults and three children with room to spare. Kelly and Hans are so nice; they provided sodas, bottles of water and plenty of coffee and tea krups. The Keurig was a nice touch. We had planned to visit NASA so Kelly went out of her way to locate discount coupons for us. Thanks a bunch Kelly!!! In addition to this the pantry was well stocked with lots of condiments and other essentials plus a few snacks. Hans provided plenty of firewood so we had a great time around a cozy fire on a chilly night. Very generous of them! Oh I also want to add that the master bed was very comfortable!

I highly recommend this property and the owners and hopefully one day everyone will travel back and we can stay here again. Thanks again for everything!!!

                            Words can't express how wonderful this house is! I arrived at the house and was greeted by the owners son (very well mannered and helpful); he gave me a insightful tour of the home and the area. The rest of the party arrived and was amazed by the décor, size and amenities in the house. We had enough room for our meetings and dining time. The owners where friendly and helpful. I'll rent this house again and will refer it to other large groups.

                            Private, yet close to many popular area attractions, a wonderful place for a memorable family get together. The house is large and comfortable, the grounds tree shaded and well attended. Hans and Kelley really care that you have an enjoyable experience. We experienced first hand their quality brand of southern hospitality. Don't miss out on this one of a kind experience. Thank you Hans and Kelley, we plan to visit Oak House on the Bayou again.

                            Beautiful rental home to stay in with our sons and their families from Germany, South Carolina, and Colorado. We are from Florida and found the area vey much like our climate, hot and humid in the summer, the surrounding area is close in appearance as well. Loved going to the beach, so close by, Visited NASA and the Aquarium. Rowed down the river a few times with the canoes--lovely ride.

                            This property was the perfect place for our family to stay during our daughters wedding at Haak Winery. After weeks of stress, within 30 mins. of arriving I curled up on the porch swing and slept like a baby. So peaceful and the grounds the house sits on are beautiful. My daughter and I agreed we should of had the wedding there! House was immaculate, spacious and very comfortable. There is a big fire pit area and unfortunately we did not have time to use it. So I guess we will have to go back!!! Hans and Kelly were so nice and accomodating, you felt like a guest in their home, not weekend renters.

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: Our family enjoys traveling especially to locations where we can enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and canoeing. We chose this location because of tranquil surroundings. Staying here is like being in your own private retreat.

                          Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe:
                          We selected this property because of the tranquil surroundings. The location is ideal because this home is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but it is within close proximity to all the convinces offered in a city. This property is minutes away from Field of Dreams baseball park and is a short drive away fro Galveston, Kemah and NASA.
