About the property

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

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great fishing trip for our kiddos.

  • 5 of 5

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!

If you plan to kayak, fish or just walk down the beach this is the place for you! Far enough from the city to see amazing sunsets and the stars are beautiful at night!

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.

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.
