About the property

Bungalow #1 At Magnolia Beach, Tx. Limit 4.

Magnolia Beach Bungalow #1 is simply a small piece of paradise sporting a PRIVATE beach, access road and lighted fishing pier. We have a total of four bungalows for your enjoyment. Three of our bungalows will fit up to four people. They have Queen size beds and the most up - to - date futons which turn into a full size bed.

We have a special adult bungalow just for two or the romantic couple that still desire the fishing life, listening to the waves and spending some special time together.

Our bungalow numbers are 607955, 702157, 701938 and 701926. All Bungalows are furnished with a full kitchen, Dish TV and free Wi-Fi. Sorry, the calendar only reflects one Bungalow rental. We've been round and round about that with VRBO.

Absolutely breathtaking sunrises and sunsets are a daily occurrence. Especially, viewing from the hammocks beneath the beach cabana. So, load up your fishing poles and come experience a piece of paradise for yourself. Limited to 4 please. The Bungalows were built and designed 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), range/stove and sink. A full size microwave is mounted above the stove. The floors have a beautifully stained concrete finish that shines like glass. The bathrooms have hand-tiled showers which are exceptionally clean and refreshing.

The pier is equipped with two underwater GREEN lights which attract the bait fish at night.

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.

Kayaking is very popular in the area as well.

Magnolia Beach has J&T's convenience store (with the Saltwater Saloon in the rear!! Pool, shuffleboard, games and a jukebox with a live band every now and then) just a couple of minutes from the Bungalows. Great 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 the Indianola Fishing Marina... which has a large deck in back to fish on all night if you'd like. Live bait here! Boat ramp there to accommodate the big boats. Good seafood menu, steaks, and 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. The Bungalows were completed in 2012 on a prime location and the owner also lives on the property. It's a little bit "higher end" than most beach cabins, but, still costs less than most hotels. There will be a cold six-pack or a bottle of wine waiting on you when you get here... just let us know when you book a bungalow. Compliments of the Bungalows, as are the chips and crackers on the cabinet!!!

We have a (20x20) Pergola in back of the Bungalows furnished with gas grills, a picnic table/chairs and a BBQ-pit - gas/charcoal (on the way to the beach). Good to go! Also, we have laundry facilities for guests who get a little wet or sandy, too!

There's everything you need for a perfect getaway, right here! Give owners Megan or Lynn a call at (361) 218-0089 or (651) 366-1422 and we'll fix you right up!

About Lynn Parsons

Hi! We're the cool chicks who live in the big house behind the Bungalows. Yep, we're the owners. We bought this 1.8 acres in 2006 and completed the construction on the Bungalows late 2012. Our family consists of us and 4 dogs. We have an Aussie named Reina, a mini Doxie named L.T., a German Shepherd/Heeler cross named Sierra and a Springer Spaniel named Ryder. Oh, almost forgot Pancho, the Macaw, who lives under the large grapefruit tree. You'll hear him!!

Megan was raised in Port Lavaca, but left in 1980 after High School. She's a Civil Engineer (yes, an Aggie) for Testengeer Engineering, in Port Lavaca. Lynn is retired from the USPS, and is originally from Minnesota. She received a degree from the University of Minnesota in Liberal Arts. She is currently acting as manager of the Bungalows and our paradise.

Lynn Parsons purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Lynn Parsons chose Gulf Coast

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.

What makes this bungalow unique

You just can't beat living on the water. Plus, we've got the happiest dogs and bird in the world! Lynn and I will strive to make you the happiest guests, too! BBQing under the pergola on the new pit, water right there, visiting and just relaxing. Breathe it all in.

A last minute trip couldn't have been more perfect! This cozy cottage had all the comforts needed and beautiful waterfront scenery that was spectacular!

A true hidden gem! We will definitely be back to take in the sun , do some great fishing and retreat to the comfort of the privacy we needed!

Thank you for your hospitality and making us feel at home!

Very quiet get-away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our quiet trip to Magnolia Beach. Our host, Lynn, was great and gave us a personal tour. The arrival and check-in process was seamless. The cottage is very clean, comfortable, and charming. One of our favorite things was the lack of light pollution, and we grooved to the star-gazing. My husband enjoyed fishing from the private dock. Be aware that the cottages are on the road and there is a bit of a walk to the bay and pier, so take a flashlight if you're planning to walk down to the lighted pier to night fish. We appreciated that there were not a lot of lights so that we could see the stars well.

A peaceful, isolated weekday getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed Sunday-Thursday and were the only guests which meant we had the beach & pier to ourselves! Tranquility overtook me as I lay in the hammock under the pergola. My husband thoroughly enjoyed fishing from the private pier & caught 29 speckled trout our first night! We had one keeper over 15 inches! We also "fed" the crab traps and used crab throw lines and caught several large blue crabs! We could not have asked for better fishing! Then on night 3, my husband caught a 22 inch speckled trout! I cannot describe how fresh and incredible those fish & crabs tasted!! The bungalow was very comfortable and the mattresses & linens were near the top of the line! My only warnings-- beware of jellyfish if playing in the water. I sustained a pretty significant sting--have vinegar with you!!! The other warning--ask if you have any questions about amenities!

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days and we are super glad we picked this place. The owners were extremely nice and our bungalow was super clean. We were lucky enough to be the only ones here this week so we had the whole pier and beach to ourselves!!! We will be coming back in September.

Our new favorite place

  • 5 of 5

The Bungalow was super clean and very cozy. The owners had great suggestions for kayaking and places to eat. We loved their lighted dock as it gave us anytime access to fishing or just sitting out watching the waves. We weren't really sure what to expect with owners living on site, but our worries quickly left after meeting them. They were super nice and welcoming. This has become one our new favorite places. We will for sure be back. The only bad thing about the visit was that we didn't stay long enough. :)

Additional information about rental rates

Tax Rate 8.25%

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.
