About the property

Sleeps 11-13, Private Dock, Canal, Gas BBQ Grill, Fishing, Kayaking, Wade Fish


Margarita nice as the picture looks it does not do it justice. This bay house is located just 6 miles west of San Luis Pass, 20 miles from Galveston Island and 10 miles from Surfside Beach. There is a beach directly across Blue Water Hwy, it is a five minute walk. It is a point lot with a 200 ft private boat dock right out your back door. This is some of the best fishing, kayaking, and birding on the gulf coast.

Enjoy the true point lot experience with 360 degree views and a groomed beach just across the street. We are the primary spot on the local Texas kayak paddling trail with miles of great boating and fishing right out your back door. Christmas Bay is a wade fisherman's Paradise. Bring your boat and tie it to your private dock.

Come join us for a relaxing weekend or weekly get away! We have gone to great lengths to make this a family friendly get away. Enjoy BBQING while fishing off your private dock. There is a small grassy area for the kids to run and play.

About Reservations

As a Houston native that now lives in Colorado, I felt a calling to renovate and make this house a beautiful get away. I hope you all enjoy this property as much as I have over the years. Please remember that I have worked hard to make it nice and price it fair so come down and enjoy!

Reservations purchased this house in 2006

Why Reservations chose Gulf Coast

This is a point lot on one of the best fishing areas on the Galveston coast line. Boat access from your private dock to Christmas Bay, Bastrop Bay, Intercostal Canal, West Bay, San Luis Pass, and the Gulf of Mexico. It offers the beach and the bay right next to each other. Boat ramp 100 feet from the house. Catch Redfish, Trout, Flounder and Crabs.

What makes this house unique

The wade fishing at the Beach and Christmas Bay right out your back door is outstanding and when your finished the sunsets are to die for!!! Park you boat at your back door on your private dock. Incredible sea and coastal bird watching.

The perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Away from the craziness of Galveston and just the right distance off the beach.

The house is just like the description and photos.

Very well maintained property, great location.

Having the canal "in the backyard" was wonderful.

Great fishing!

We will be back.

Our stay at the Seagrass!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the 2 story house in the pictures. The pictures do not begin to give this house justice!! Beautiful inside and out, TONS of room, super comfy beds, Grand kitchen, decks with every view, large patio under house, long fishing deck, great decorations, awesome rain shower heads, FULLY stocked with everything you could possibly need. We fished with the kids until midnight, played washers (washer pits provided), caught Blue Crab and boiled them for supper, ate outside at the picnic table, drank our coffee in the mornings on the decks, watched the sun rise and set. The owner was great and very responsive, neighbors are friendly and knowledgable of the area. We had 2 adults and 4 kids +plus grandparents first night, plenty of room for everyone. Quiet dead end street, very little traffic, one block to public access beach. Kids asked when we could come back, before we ever left and if we could "Please, please stay at that house when we come back!" highly recommend this house and location...we will check this house for availability first!
