Kemah house description

This beautiful vacation rental home overlooks Galveston Bay in Kemah, Texas. It is one of only two homes available for rentals that is located within 3 minutes walking distance of the wildly popular Kemah Boardwalk entertainment complex. The home will easily sleep 10 people and features a recent remodeling of the bathrooms and kitchen. The primary home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a detached guest room with bath resides on the ground floor. Therefore there are 4 total Bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There is a 220 foot private pier available for those who wish to go crabbing or fishing or both. Five crab traps are located on the pier and there is an elevated observation deck at the end of the pier with a 360 degree view. One of the unique aspects of this home is the 2600 square foot wrap-around wooden deck - complete with outdoor bar. The deck also attaches to the ocean side balconies and the balconies are connected with a spiral staircase. This is a gorgeous home with spectacular views. Great for fishing, relaxing or entertaining.

Private Pier
The private pier is 220 feet long and extends out into one of the best fishing areas in Kemah. The end of the pier, known as the T-head, has an upper observation area for 360 degree viewing.
