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.

We absolutely loved our time at this beautiful home! Loved using their crab pots to catch crabs for dinner(they even had large plastic platters to serve them on!). My boys loved the pier to fish. Friday night fireworks were enjoyed from the back yard. Pool and outdoor seating (sun and shade) was enjoyed by all. My mom loved the swing. ... this is just your outside experience! Inside they had everything you would need from a stocked kitchen, linens/towels, games, movies - plenty of seating upstairs and down. Tammy and her husband were great to respond in a timely manner to any your questions or needs. Would recommend! Would also plan a trip back there next year!

Bacliff/Kemah are not much to look at but, the house is great and close to the boardwalk. If simply want to relax poolside and you have kids that like the boardwalk rides and Galveston beach, you are good to go.

Tammi's Baycliff home was a joy to stay in. It is well decorated and has truly thoughtful touches that make it feel more like home. A great location for fishing and sightseeing. we especially enjoyed the Kemah fireworks show we could watch from the pier!

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!
