About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7 Adults

We now offer a heated hot tub. Also the pool can be heated for an additional fee of $150 on a three night rental.

We would like for you to enjoy our home away from home. It is freshly remodeled and setup for comfort and relaxation. We are located 2 miles south of the Kemah Boardwalk and face Galveston Bay. You can enjoy the private pool and pier right out the backdoor! You can feel the stress level of life go down as you walk through the door.

There are a variety of dining and activity options within a short walk or drive. Dining wise there are two local restaurants within walking distance (Noah’s and Podzu’s) offering local flair seafood. A short drive takes you to the semi famous Gilhooleys, Top Water Grill, T-Bone Tom’s, Boardwalk etc. Activities range from swimming and fishing right at home (Mom and Dad can watch the kids from the seating area inside behind the large picture windows) to day trips to Galveston, Moody Gardens, beaches, NASA, rides at Kemah, day sailing/boating, etc.

A maximum of six cars are allowed at the property at anytime. Also we do not allow group parties without prior discussion and consent. Not adhering to these will cause you to give up your deposit.

About Tammi

We live in the Houston area and recently purchased this second home for weekend getaways. We want to share it with you and look forward to making your experience enjoyable! Being in Houston, we can be very flexible to meet your needs and requests.

Tammi purchased this house in 2012

Why Tammi chose Texas

This home is the ultimate getaway for 1-2 families. We have spent the last few months remodeling the interior; new flooring, bathrooms, fixtures, paint. The furnishings are all picked for relaxation and comfort. There are multiple lounging/dining areas for either looking out at the amazing view, watching TV, visiting around the bar, etc. The real selling point is being waterfront with a private pool and pier. Wear the kids out swimming and fishing. Then Mom and Dad can enjoy the evening views over refreshments.

What makes this house unique

We have furnished the home with two king beds with upscale mattresses downstairs, upstairs is a queen bed and two twins (bunk). So we can easily house two families. There is a second kitchen area upstairs, so a second family could have their own space for morning coffee etc before the day begins. It has a private entry way/stairs. We can also offer a queen or/and or single air mattress to allow for 2 more sleepers. There is a $50 setup fee for this service.

Great house on the water. A lot to do from swimming to fishing. Also very clean and a great house to have family fun. The drive in was a bit shady but once you get there you don't want to leave. Surrounded by other beautiful homes. The kids loved it! The adults did to with the great outdoor areas! Just a really nice vacation rental!

The best family Christmas ever.

  • 5 of 5

Two years ago, when my son moved to Houston, I toured the available vacation rentals knowing the day would come when he wouldn't be able to come home to California for the holidays. Tammi and James kindly showed us the rental and I fell in love. Their vacation home is one of the nicest homes I have stayed in, and I am a frequent vacation rental patron. I was excited that our family holiday would be spent in Baclif, on the shores of Trinity Bay.

This vacation exceeded all my expectations, which were high! Tammi goes the extra mile to make the house special. Fully and beautifully decorated for Christmas, special treats left for my family, a wonderful coffee set up and two well equipped kitchens. We cooked a full Christmas dinner and all our meals, served on special Christmas dished provided. This house is so comfortable and has so much to offer we never left! While it was snowing back home we were fishing, kayaking and making use of some borrowed paddle boards, all in our own backyard. Evenings were soothing with a dip in the hot tub, conversations around the fire pit and plenty of view spots in the back yard. Mornings meant tea on the bench at the end of the pier, bike rides around the neighborhood and for some family members (not me!) endless football game viewing on the large screen tv. A truly special vacation for all. We are already planning our next trip to this special home.

A few more details. Internet was great, even with every family member using devices. Tammi was immediately available by phone or text to answer our questions. A great supply of linens, including extra dish towels and beach towels were provided.

We have rented VRBO properties all over the country, and this is one of the best! Spotlessly clean and well appointed, right down to the pair of binoculars for watching the boats on the bay. My husband and I took this trip shortly after he was released from a lengthy hospital stay, and it was the perfect 'rest and recuperation' retreat ... but it's also large enough for 3+ couples. Very easy to get to from Houston, and the quiet and solitude of the bay house were most welcome. Lots of good restaurants in the area, and if you want more of a crowd the Kemah Boardwalk is just down the road. Looking forward to another get-away in the future.

This was the first time I have ever rented a vacation home and to be honest this was the best vacation idea I've ever had the house was in great shape it was a wonderful place to spend time with my family and it was just a relaxing environment. Just down the street was a beautiful and wonderful restaurant where you can just sit and watch the water view. The pool and the pier was just the icing on top of the cake it was just the most relaxing and fun vacation my family and I have ever had.
