THE PIER WAS WASHED AWAY BY HARVEY, BUT WE HAVE PUT LIGHTS ON THE BULKHEAD FOR FISHING UNTIL THE PIER IS REBUILT.
NOTE -- Please give us an ACCURATE number of Adults and Children in your group. Our Listing states that we sleep / have beds for 20. That assumes some children in your group. Limit of beds for adults (and older teens) is about 15 including blow up and bottom bunk. If you bring more adults, you may have to provide additional bedding. We have beds for at least 20 (maybe more) including top bunks, cots, couches and/or fold-outs for kids.
Our houses are not run by a property management company, but is a family business. We live close by on the Texas Coast and equip our houses with everything we want for when we stay there. No cast off or "hand me down" mattresses. All are good quality for when we and our friends and family stay there.
Whether you are interested in Dolphin watching, birding, swimming, boating, fishing or simply watching the sun set, The Texas Court House has it! We have even seen Dolphins right off the end of the pier!
We are KID and PET FRIENDLY!!! We have 5 kids of our own and have tried to include all the things to keep the kids entertained.
When you are there, if feels like you are a million miles from civilization, but you are in a great community and only 15 minutes to a Super Walmart! You drive through a lot of ranch land and then, suddenly, you emerge in a Jewel of a place with stilt houses on a wonderful bay.
The Texas Court House is a 5 bedroom house located on Caranchua Bay near Port Lavaca, Texas. Located about halfway between Houston and Corpus Christi on the Texas Coast, Caranchua Bay is convenient to all major cities in Texas.
This house is not a canal home but a BAY home and fully equipped with EVERYTHING you might need for your stay. You need only bring you self, food and clothes. We provide everything else including all linens, towels, pans, dishes, etc. There are not 5 cups, glasses and plates here. There is PLENTY of good plate, pans and utensils.

The Texas Court House is a luxurious two story house covered in Texas Hill-Country Limestone for a unique design not found on any other vacation rental on the Texas Coast. It has two full kitchens - one upstairs and one downstairs! It has two full Master Suites upstairs with an oversized tiled shower and large Jacuzzi tub in EACH Master Bath. The three bedrooms downstairs are good sized with one doubling as a gameroom complete with Foosball for indoor fun! Enjoy a movie on the big screen HDTV and Blu Ray DVD player using our collection of DVDs. There is even a game system with games for the kids (or young at heart) to play. For the little ones, we have a play set out back.
Right out the front door is Caranchua Bay and your own NEW 6 foot wide and 200 foot long lighted pier with direct access to the water. Caranchua Bay is full of redfish, shark, trout, flounder, pompano, gafftops, whiting, croakers, sheepheads and drum. There is no commercial fishing in the Bay so fishing is GOOD! Kayaks and basic fishing gear provided as well as bright fishing lights on the pier. Don't forget to look for the dolphins!
Bring your boat! There is a boat launch nearby, and you can tie it up to our pier. Also, with your boat, you have easy access to Matagorda Bay, considered by all to have some of the best fishing on the Texas Coast!
