Margarita Sunset....as 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 grilling while fishing off your private dock. There is a small grassy area for the kids to run and play.

About Melody

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!

Melody purchased this House in 2006

Why Melody chose Freeport

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.

                                                              Relaxing Getaway

                                                              If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place for you. My family and I had a great time at this property in Freeport. I love to get out in my kayak and fish. The house is literally a 20 second walk from a kayak launch. We could see wade fisherman in the bay all day long. Perfect place to do some fishing. The beach is within walking distance as well. We chose to drive (less than a minute) so we could haul all of our beach gear. You literally drive onto the beach which was wide open and as clean as could be. Our goal was to get away from home and enjoy the outdoors (including getting our teenage kids off their devices and technology). And we definitely accomplished that. The deck on this house is amazing. My wife and I spent a lot of time on the deck just relaxing. If you need a Walmart within 5 miles or a fast food chain on every corner, this is NOT the place for you. But that is what we were looking for and wanted to get away from everything. There are a few local restaurants, and we tried a couple that were good. But we mostly just ate the fish we caught or fired up the grill at the house. All the necessities are provided and there are plenty of beds. Wish we could have stayed longer and hope to get back some day. Melody is awesome to work with. You won't be disappointed!

                                                              We really enjoyed having you and your family. Loved that you took such good care of the house. When you return remind me that I have promised to waive the maids fee for you. Hurry back y'all.

                                                              Great fishing trip for our kiddos.

                                                              The location was great and our boys loved having their own room with bunk beds. They caught a few flounder right out of the canal.

                                                              Fun trip!

                                                              Great for kayaking and fishing on Christmas Bay or just relaxing on the beach.

                                                              Wanted to share the coastal experience with friends from Dallas. We were able to kayak/fish as much as we wanted then take a break at the cabin then walk/ride to beach to play and even catch a few fish jn the surf. The property is the perfect location so everyone was able to enjoy a variety of activities so no one got bored. The cabin was well equipped with everything we needed. Enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the deck.

                                                              We rent lots of homes 4-5 times a year. Really loved this one. My boys fished everyday! Home is very nice.

                                                              Lots of space! We stayed in the bigger of the two.

                                                              We will be back!
