Efficient galley kitchen includes refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and lots more of all the necessary dishes and cooking utensils.

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.

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.

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!
Traci Waugh purchased this house in 2005
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!!!
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!

We enjoy getting away for the weekend with our two grown daughters and the grandchildren; this one is in the favorites! Everyone enjoyed themselves the young and the old.......fishing, feeding the ducks or bird watching on the upper deck.......I'm sure we'll return with all!
This is the perfect place to go when you need to chill by the water. You got the boat dock to fish off or just sit and watch the birds. Very cozy accommodations. Love the decks to watch the sunsets or the moon and stars at night. The lower deck is nice, shady and cool with a sea breeze during the day. I definitely recommend it!
The property was very easy to find and worked well with the needs of our family. The dock and outside deck were fun in the evening and the rope lighting added to the night experience. The home was very clean and read to go when we arrived. We took two trips into Kemah and one to Galveston, all close to this home.
We were lucky enough to find this little get-away during the last six months that our new home was being built in the area. This is a fun little cabin on the water that made us feel like we were on vacation everyday. Very clean and cozy on a great location in Kemah.
We came with family to visit Space Center. Kemah boardwalk, Museum of Natural Science, Museum of Art, Zoo and Aquarium. This house worked great as location to relax once we got back from touring the city and kids would relax while we made dinner in full kitchen with every thing we needed. some bonuses were the easy fishing for Catfish and Croakers at night. We litterly got a bite on every cast. There is also a bonus room for kidos to play,
Very nice place! We enjoyed fishing right off our own private deck. Thank you so much for allowing us to have a wonderful family get together. The upper deck is so spacious. We found a coffee/pastry shop that has a family of capuchin monkeys ! My granddaughters had a fun fun time. Wish we could have stayed longer.
This is my 3rd or 4th stay at Coveside and every experience just gets better. My best friend and I had the best time. We relaxed on the deck, fished and hit the Boardwalk (4) miles away!!! So convenient.
Megan was absolutely amazing before during and after our trip! She called and found us a market to clean any fish we caught, recommended awesome restaurants. Renee texted to make sure we made it to the house and check to see if we needed anything. The customer service is always outstanding!!!
The house is comfy and close to everything.
I was hoping to fish at night by dock lights. There is no "fishing" light, but we still managed to catch fish our second night!! So much fun!!!
I really love this place and travel over 10 hours from West Texas to stay here.
My family enjoyed our second stay at this wonderful house. We have 2 young kids who call this "Our Kemah house!" Great access to everything:NASA, Kemah boardwalk, Clearlake, Galveston, and more! Great fishing off the dock and amazing views from upper deck! Everything you need is there! We can't wait to go back next year!
