About Linda

My family and I have lived in the Houston area for the last 30 years and have been going to Kemah for almost 20 years now. We both have stressful jobs and have used this property as our 'therapy' to make the short drive to get away and relax. Going boating around the Clear Lake and Galveston Bay has been one of our favorite things to do as a family.

Linda purchased this house in 1995

Why Linda chose Kemah

This has been a wonderful vacation home for our family over the last 15 years. It was built in the 1920's and was moved to this location in the 70's. A few years back this home was completely renovated. We are not able to enjoy it as often as we would like due to our busy schedules, so that's why we decided to let other families enjoy the home as much as we do! We love Kemah because it's a very active community, there is never a lack of activities for the whole family to enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Our home is 1 block from all the Kemah Boardwalk activities, that has something great for the whole family, from an amusement park, games, and tons of delicious restaurants.

Excellent place to stay. We loved every detail.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay. Sunrises from the porch were incredible. The fireworks show on the water was amazing and we had the best seat in the house. A/C kept us nice and cool when humidity was high. We will definitely re-book!

Nice property right next to the Kemah boardwalk.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 day stay. The proximity to Johnson Space Centre was ideal. As other reviewers mentioned, the garbage trucks are present at various times. It didn't affect our sleep (with the help of ear plugs). The coffeemaker was appreciated!

Beautiful and comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

Your home is beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed staying there very much. The one problem we had was with the sound on the television. We had a very difficult and frustrating time getting the sound to work. Overall, I would recommend your home to others.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Very relaxing. Bigger than pictures look. Sun sets away from water so sitting on porch is great after 1pm. Convenient walking to lots of food and shopping.

Downside is the 2am trash pickup from the boardwalk.

Great escape to a lovely comfortable home close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was spotless, comfortable, beautifully renovated with all the amenities we could need. It was so nice to be able to walk on the boardwalk (just steps away) early in the mornings, quiet and peaceful. This was a real treat and we look forward to returning to this special place. and less than an hour away from Houston!
