Very clean, Tight quarters put very nice.

Only thing I saw that needed attention to was the fold down bed. It needs some work done on it. The trim and legs need work on them.

My Blue Have is My Blue Paradise!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to My Blue Haven within a year. Yes, we like it that much. The place was just as clean as it was the last time we visited. What a great place for a quick girls trip. I am a chef so I very much enjoy cooking for my friends in the kitchen on the porch. We spent most of our time there or on the amazing boat dock. Caught tons of crabs and even a couple fish. Not bad for a few ladies!! This is a great place to stay and the owner is very helpful. We will definitely be back again. The reason I give it 4 stars is because the pictures show a beach to sit on and both times I have been there that just isn't possible due to the granite sea wall that was built to stop erosion. If you are looking to sit on a nice sandy beach this is not the place for you. If you want to relax and watch the waves from the porch and enjoy fishing and crabbing this place is excellenta!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished a full weeks' stay at Our Blue Have (our second time to stay there) and found the place perfect for our needs on this trip. As before, the place was very clean and had everything we needed. While the studio is not very large, it really did not matter since we spent most of our time outside. It is also made to feel much larger by the screened in porch. The convenient location on the intracoastal and proximity to the beach are why we chose this place. For us, the best feature was the dock. It is partially covered, but still plenty of room for casting. We caught fish every night with the help of the underwater lights and the overhead spotlights. We caught flounder, reds, speckled trout, gulf trout, and sand trout (along with a few catfish). October is a great month in Sargent with very moderate temps and this place is perfectly suited for that time of year. The owners keep the place in great condition and nothing looks or feels neglected or run-down. We will definitely come again and don't hesitate to recommend this to others.

Fun vacation for a family

  • 5 of 5

Fun place for outdoor activities. We were forced to be off-line because there was no wi-fi and spotty phone reception (T-Mobile), which to me is the reason for a vacation. Our children (2 preteens, 1 toddler) were grumpy at first but learned to adjust. It was nice to see the family not distracted by computer, ipad, or phone.

THE GOOD: This is a cozy, clean, and modern place. Almost everything we need was provided. The owner was nice to keep in touch with us when needed. The outside grill and eating area were great for meals. The covered fishing pier was the main attraction for our family. We spent most of our time on the pier crabbing and fishing. The pier is spacious, clean, has cleaning table, sink, and water hoses at the right place -- nice touch! We brought our own open panel crab traps and caught tons of crabs. We saw a lot of fish swimming and feeding under the lights, but did not catch any on the first few nights with dead shrimp. We finally caught some trouts and red fish on the last night after figuring out what they want (tip: pay attention to what they are feeding on, and use bait closely resemble to what they are feasting.) The beach was easy to get to and OK to walk around. The sand and water were kind of muddy but we knew this is typical in this area.

THE BAD: This place is a little tight for a family of 5. Watch your feet when the murphy bed is down. There is not much walking room to the kitchen and the bed corner is sharp. We have scars to prove it. The mattress for the pull out couch is not comfortable to sleep on. You can feel the metal frame when laying down.

NO COMMENT: It was too hot to use the hot tub. The kayak was heavy and tough to get out so we did not bother with it.

OVER ALL: We will come back. Would recommend this place to friends/relatives.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Had one of the best times of my life. Being a Peace officer of a big city getting away to do some fishing was just what I needed . My brother Brian took me just to get away but it turned in something much more. Love this place my now vacation spot. Jeanne was wonderful thank you for everything.

Cute and Comfy little place on the intercoastal

  • 5 of 5

My sister and her son stayed there over July 4th. Great little place if you don't mind sleeping all in the same room. The indoor and outdoor kitchen were nice and nicely equipped. Large screen TV which my nephew and kids enjoyed when not out on the water. The outdoor shower was a nice touch and the apartment is quite roomy and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and utilizing our jetski as they have a lift. The intercoastal on that side of the swing bridge is quiet and uncrowded. The water in front of the dock is quite shallow with lots of oyster beds so wear water shoes. My nephew tried fishing but got caught up on a pole sticking out of the water, probably marking the waterline. Overall, would definitely rent the place again. Was fortunate to meet the owner when we went to check in and she is lovely and accommodating. We grilled burgers on the outdoor grill and ate in their outdoor bar area. My sister enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. Great time!!

Like peace and quiet after a fun filled day? This get away gives you the chance to unwind, explore, enjoy and just relax. Our large fishing pier has spot lights, great benches and lots of room for fishing. A kayak is provided for the adventurous to explore the Intercostal Water Way or the inlets of the 80,000 acre wildlife refuge. The ocean out front lets you swim, surf, snorkel, fish or just sun bathe without using your car. This rental has a hot tub where you can relax while watching the barges go by. Our outdoor kitchen has all conveniences if you want to cook yourself. Local restaurants provide a variety of food, but Lake Jackson and Bay City are less than 30 minutes away if you are looking for a bigger city, shopping or sophisticated dining.

Bring your own boat or charter one--but be sure to bring fishing poles. Bicycle up and down the road, or the beach. The entrance to the island is the last Swing Bridge in Texas. You can drive on the beach, use the public boat launches. Bring your jet skis to cruise the Intercoastal.
