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.

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 SS BBQ-pit (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!

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.

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!
