Property description

Magnolia Beach Bungalow #1 is simply a small piece of paradise sporting a private access road, a private beach and a private lighted fishing pier. We have a total of four bungalows for your use three of our bungalows will fit up to four people. .They have Queen beds and the most up to date futons that turns into a full bed.. We have our special adult bungalow just for two and the romantic couple who still want the fishing life and some special time together.. Our bungalow numbers are 607955, 702157. 701938 and 701926. Give us a call. We are furnished with a full kitchen, Dish TV and free Wi-Fi. Absolutely breathtaking sunrises and sunsets are a daily occurrence, especially viewing from a hammock beneath the beach cabana. So, load up your fishing poles and come experience a piece of paradise for yourself. Limited to 4 please. The Bungalow was designed and built with an open area concept. The queen size bed is in the rear with a superior full size futon in front of the 32" TV. The kitchen has a full size fridge (with ice maker), sink and stove. A full size microwave is mounted above the stove. The floors sport a beautiful stained concrete finished that shines like glass. The bathroom has a hand-tiled shower - beautiful. This is a very historic area with literature in the bungalow detailing its' inception. Wanna go deep sea fishing? We can hook you up with one of our local fishing guides for either 1/2 day or all day! Offshore or Bay fishing - we have both! There is a local boat ramp about 1/2 mile from the Bungalow and you're more than welcome to park your trailer here (plenty of room with 2 acres) and dock at our pier. Magnolia Beach has J&T's convenience store (with the Saltwater Saloon in the rear!! Pool, shuffleboard, games and jukebox with a live band every now and then) just a couple of minutes from the Bungalows. Great food, burgers, pizza and super cold beer! Everything ya need for a day at the beach! Great place to go cool off, too, after a hot day fishing on the beach! On the other end of the beach, we have Indianola Fishing Marina...A Large deck in back to fish on all night if you want. Live bait here! Boat ramp there to accommodate the big boats. Good seafood menu, good steaks, too! And, of course, lots of cold beer! They normally have a live band every weekend. Not many folks know about Magnolia Beach. But, once they have been here, they always return. This Bungalow was completed in 2012 in a prime location and the owner also lives on the property. It's a little bit 'higher end than most beach cabins, but still cost less than most Hotels. There will be a cold six-pack or a bottle of wine waiting on you when you get there, just let us know when you book a bungalow. Compliments of the Bungalow, as are the chips and crackers on the cabinet!!! Just finished the slab (20x20) underneath the Pergola in back of the Bungalow (on the way to the beach). Picnic table, SS BBQ-pit. Good to go! Also have a wash house for guests who get a little wet or sandy, too! There's everything you need right here! Welcome to Kathy Lutts, the new property manager. Her and her husband, Larry, recently retired and moved to Mag beach. She's only a few blocks away from the Bungalow which affords you very timely responses should you need anything! Please be sure and contact her by phone at 832-285-4139.

There is a Terms and Conditions sheet in the Bungalow outlining all of the additional terms. I'm pretty easy going, i.e., there isn't really any check in time. Just c'mon when you get loose. There really isn't a check out time, per say. Lots of folks decide to stay an additional night longer than they originally planned just because of the relaxation and wonderful atmosphere around here.

Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi! I'm the chick who lives in the big house behind the Bungalow. I bought this 1.8 acres in 2006 and decided to start construction on the Bungalow in early 2011. It's me and four. I have an Aussie named Reina, a mini Doxie named L.T. and a Border Collie named Sug. Oh, almost forgot Pancho, the Macaw, who lives under the large grapefruit tree. You'll hear him!! I was raised in Port Lavaca, but left in 1980 after High School. I'm a Civil Engineer (yes, I'm an Aggie) for Jacobs Engineering HQ'd in Houston. I also have my own private firm. I work close, so I get to come home everyday, which I absolutely love. These sunrises and sunsets are awesome. I designed these Bungalow. They are very sound. I'm kinda OCD sometimes, so it's very clean, too. I'm very proud of this and that is the most popular comment I receive. Come see me and my bunch! We'll light a bonfire and visit a while! :) Megan

Why the Owner Chose Port Lavaca, TX, USA:
Came back home and wanted people to enjoy the piece of paradise that I had. The bungalows will make you want to find your own property and live here. Just check my Property Manager Kathy, she will not leave and is putting her retirement here.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
You just can't beat living on the water. Plus, I've got the happiest dogs and bird in the world! Kathy and I will strive to make you the happiest guests, too!
