About Judy Chavez

My husband Val and I grew up in Palacios and raised our 4 children here. We love this town and the water and never thought we could own a home on the water. We lived happily at Valyn's Landing for many years until our family just grew too big and we needed more space. A piece of our hearts stay with the property even though we only live a few miles away!

Judy Chavez purchased this house in 2003

Why Judy Chavez chose Palacios

Our property was our family home for many years and we took great care of it. We take pride in sharing the home we made so many great memories in with our children, grandchildren, and friends. You will love the open concept of the living space which allows for water views from just about every room. You will enjoy the private pier as you fish, sunbathe, swim, or porpoise watch. Palacios is a great little town that will remind you of a simpler time.

What makes this house unique

We bought this property for the outdoor space, private pier, and amazing view. The home needed extensive remodeling and updating which we did and continue to do.

Amazing Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Judy and Val are amazing owners who stopped by after we arrived to make sure everything was ok. They are very sweet and had some great fishing tips for the area.

The house is really comfortable and well decorated with a beach theme. We were amazed at how clean and kept up the property is. Lots of outdoor seating, a great bar area downstairs, and small outdoor refrigerator for drinks.

The pier is great. We caught lots of trout and one Spanish Mackerel from it. They provide crabs traps and we caught plenty. If your in to kayaking there is a launch spot at the property.

Thank you Judy and Val for providing an amazing home for our annual family trip! We will definitely be back!

Relaxing Scenery and Views

  • 5 of 5

Quaint and comfortable waterfront bay house with well appointed decor. Great water views, relaxing porch upstairs and a downstairs patio and open air bar area with nice airflow. We sat outside comfortably in August. Crab traps were provided and produced our dinner one night. Judy made a big effort to prepare the house for our stay by manicuring the yard, spraying for bugs, and setting the crab traps. She meet us when we arrived and was easily accessible.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

The property is better than the pictures. We brought a lot of stuff that we didn't need because they already had it at the house. The outdoor space is very nice. We caught the usual fish plus two sharks. We will go back but will wait until fall for better fishing. The owners are very nice.
