About the Property

3 Bedroom 3 bath, private dock, canal, BBQ Grill on patio, Kayak & Canoe on si

NEWLY RENOVATED WITH A WRAP AROUND DECK....ITS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS - CLOSE ENOUGH TO EVERYTHING BUT JUST FAR ENOUGH TO GET AWAY!!!!

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 and 20 miles from Galveston Island. 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, 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.

Come join us for a great 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. We have a kayak and canoe on site, you can use them, however you assume all liability while in use. Children under the age of 18 are prohibited from using them without a parent or guardian present on craft.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Freeport, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wade fishing in the surf 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. Boat ramp 100 feet away from Bay House. Incredible sea and coastal bird watching.
