Why Fred chose Seabrook

Stunning waterfront 'BayHouse' on Galveston Bay, just 35 minutes from fourth largest city in the US. This classic bay house once owned by an astronaut is a wonderful quiet getaway house, minutes away from great outdoor activities, like a 1000 foot municipal pier, Frisbee golf course, great fishing, sailing, and endless nautical activities. Just five minutes from Kemah Boardwalk and the NASA SPACE CENTER. Great seafood to catch, or buy from great seafood markets, or take in one of the areas many fine restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Jogging trails, nature trails, bike trails and lots of boat watching at many nearby marinas. City water park, and Frisbee course around the corner. Beautiful bird watching, several sites nearby of the Great Coastal Birding Trail, come enjoy the pelicans, black skimmers, and osprey.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was wonderful- quiet and relaxing. Loved watching the dolphins swimming in the bay from the porch. We hope to make a return visit soon. Thank You.

Wonderful Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a Surprise 60th Birthday Weekend! The home has plenty of space with an outstanding view of Galveston Bay off of the upper deck. We had seven women enjoying a great weekend together! The location was so relaxing that we did not feel the need to venture out once there. It was 5 minutes at most to Kemah! We all met for a surprise lunch at La Brisa, near Kemah before wisking the Birthday girl off to the rental.

Our only suggestion would be the need for additional blankets for those sleeping in the living room...only sheets were provided. The kitchen pots could use an update of matching lids but we made do.

We had a fantastic stay! I would definitely book this again!

Charming waterfront home!

We had a great time! The home is very charming and comfortable. We loved watching the beautiful sunrises in the morning and bird watching through out the day. Great location close to Kemah Boardwalk and great parks for kids. We look forward to returning!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect if you're visiting the NASA Space Center, downtown Houston, or Galveston. We really enjoyed our stay and the warm breezes coming off the bay. We enjoyed it so much that on our last day, we stayed out on the back deck and enjoyed the view instead of other plans! Also recommend Boondoggles for pizza and fun, which is right next to Pinky's, the kayak rental place. We also tried Outriggers and were disappointed (greasy fried seafood...). The Kemah Boardwalk is a great place to walk around and people watch, and only a 5 minute drive. Thanks again, Fred!

Stunning view of sunrise

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend. The house is as advertised and the view of sunrise from the porch drinking coffee was wonderful! It is close to Kemah boardwalk, T bone Tom's and grocery stores, but feels far away and is quiet place to relax
