Property description

You will love our cheerful 2-story, waterfront home situated on a quiet cul de sac. As soon as you drive up, your blood pressure will lower,and the relaxation begins.... Fully furnished, Non-Smoking, our getaway easily accommodates 6 adults MAX.
It's a great family place too, with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs, as well as an open Library with a (double-bed size extra thick) Futon, and a large Living/Dining area. Efficient galley kitchen includes refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and lots more of all the necessary dishes and cooking utensils. Please read the reviews, as our previous guests have really enjoyed their visits at our Kemah Coveside Getaway.

We make sure you have some kitchen things to get you started: spices, paper towels, toilet paper, and other little things you need. Central air & heat, washer/dryer upstairs, cable TV in the Living Area, large flat screen TV, and high speed Internet access at the master bedroom desk. Towels and linens are provided.

Large Master Bedroom has Queen bed, Master Bath has new jacuzzi tub/shower. Master has direct access to 700 sf deck, which overlooks canal. Relax and take in the views on the upper deck, which offers an oversized Weber Propane Grill, patio table, with umbrella, and 6 chairs. Plenty of extra deck chairs. The propane tank is usually full, but occasionally you might have to add to it if you grill a whole lot!

Lower Deck/Dock Area:
Downstairs Hangout Room includes: small fridge, window a/c, separate sink, shower. If needed, this area can be converted to sleep 2 people on available inflatable Queen Coleman Mattress, or other bedding can be brought in. Great area for teenagers and handy for boaters to use after returning from fishing or kayaking. Lower Deck is lushly landscaped, breezy and super-shady. Walk directly to the Boat Dock, which can accommodate 2 boats or jet skis, kayaks, canoes, or whatever makes you happy! Immediate access to Clear Lake & Galveston Bay. You can fish or crab off the dock, or walk 2 houses down to the Bridge and fish there too.

Attention Fishermen: lots of big reds and flounder are regularly caught on Clear Lake, just a few minutes away from the house! Our next door neighbor is a guide and can hook you up!!!!!
Fishing guide lives right next door! Look at the 28' Redfish Captain Carey caught! He has Clear Lake Texas Fishing Trips and can hook you up while you are staying at the house. Don't need to sweat a long offshore trip when you can catch fish 5 minutes away. We love it when you catch fish, and we ask that all fish cleaning be done at the dock, and storage outside of the house in coolers.

Conveniently located just 3.5 miles from Kemah Boardwalk, weekend Farmers Market and lots of area marinas, as well as NASA Johnson Space Center. WOW! Kemah Boardwalk, which overlooks Galveston Bay, was voted #3 in Shermans Travel list of the 'Best Boardwalks in the Country.' Roller coaster, ferris wheel, lots of great rides, restaurant and entertainment.

Gulf Freeway just minutes away, easy access to Houston and Galveston. Galveston recreation includes Schlitterbahn, and in the Summer of 2012 the new Pleasure Pier! Also, great restaurants, bars, shopping, several boat launches, good fishing, jet ski rentals, and other recreational activities all within minutes of the property.

Parties? We have wonderful neighbors we want to keep happy. Although we want our guests to have full enjoyment of the house, this is not a party house, and only the occupants listed on the rental agreements are allowed to stay. We understand you may have a few guests while you are at the house, but a large group who might disturb neighbors could be grounds for forfeiting your deposit.

DON'T FORGET TO READ OUR REVIEWS!!!


2-NIGHT MINIMUM. NO EXCEPTIONS. WE WILL REPLY TO EMAIL INQUIRIES REQUESTING THE 2-NIGHT MINIMUM OR LONGER.
PLEASE NOTE: UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT ACCOMMODATE ANY LARGE GROUPS, SUCH AS REUNIONS, WEDDING PARTIES, WEEKEND BIRTHDAY PARTIES. We work hard to be sure our neighbors are not disturbed, so home is only for actual people on the Rental Agreement.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As a native Houstonian, I have seen many changes take place in and around Houston. I have survived several hurricanes, and yes, even my 'Bird of Paradise' survived the flooding of Ike. But I love plants and landscaping, so we definitely replanted. I look forward to visiting my Kemah Coveside Getaway as often as possible. Driving up to the house helps drive down my blood pressure! Come enjoy our retreat!

Why the Owner Chose Kemah, TX, USA:
Eventually I may retire here in Kemah. For years I searched for the perfect place in and around Kemah, and found it in this home. This place is just so special to me. It is not one of those typical builder homes. It's not perfect, it is older, and has character and that is why I chose it over others. It is on the water, just like I wanted. Lovely neighbors, with character, not nosy, but helpful if needed. It's just a great, laid back place. I will write more when I have time!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the best things about my house is that it is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but just minutes away from everything, like the Kemah Boardwalk. Just about no traffic, and you can take a walk around and all the neighbors are friendly. Walk 2 houses down to the Seminole Bridge, which has been a great fishing spot for years, or fish off our dock, OR put your boat in and fish anywhere!
