About the property

One master bedroom, Another bedroom for the adult guests , 3 full baths additional bath down stairs if needed. sleeps 8-10 people ( depends on how well you like who your vacationing with) open living room area. 2 full size beds, 2 queen size beds, 1 single size bed and two comfortable couches. Full kitchen with all pot & pans and silverware. Dining area inside home and two tables out on 200 square foot deck outside ,50" flat screen HD cable TV with Internet and Wi-Fi . Large fishing pier with boat ramp, bay and bayou back up to this property, great for jet skis small boats and excellent for Kayak fishing A paddle boat can be rented for twenty five dollars extra. Fish out the back door. Galveston's Moody Gardens , Schlitterbahn and the Galveston Strand district only 15 minuets away. NASA is 15 miles away along with Tangiers outlet mall, Bay fishing 1/2 mile away with access to the Gulf of Mexico. This Bayou house is great for couples that like the quite and beautiful sunsets. The home is on the water and miles from traffic yet you can be at Kemah Boardwalk or Galveston beaches in 15-20 minutes. The Bistro cafe down the street offer some of the best seafood and Italian food in the area . If you want a cold beer The Palms offers the coldest beer in Texas only 3 blocks away. Here's the good news if your looking for a place to relax, have your favorite drink, Bar-B- Que (2 pits on premises) and just watch the sunset, this is a great place to be. This coastal cabin backs up to miles of saltwater grass with some fishing right off the deck however the fishing is not the best due to fresh water flowing downstream. Bring your own Kayak or small boat and you can enjoy some laid back R&R I want to let boating folks know that even though we are on the water the bayou is land locked and there is no access to Galveston Bay from this location. Louis Bait camp one mile down the road is the closest place to put your boat in the cost is $5.

Great place to relax and enjoy!

Great crabbing, owner has several more traps to use and I did and caught a lot of crabs!

Fishing not so good, had quite a bit of rain that runs the fish back to the saltier water.

The location and house was great.

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful the dock was big love the fishing. I wished all night. They put out the traps for crabs. Just a great place for a great price.

I would recommend this home to all my friends that are planing a trip to Galveston.

We did lots of fishing and swimming at the house. We drove into Galveston to play golf, shop, fishing, and going to the beach. We also had lunch at Bubba Gump.

Visited with family that live in Galveston swam in their pool.

We stayed for the whole week. Ready to plan next year's trip.

The property is just as the pictures show.

  • 5 of 5

The experience was awesome. This was our first family trip with our boys and they could not get enough of this home. This was the first time they ever fished or crabbed and couldn't keep away from the dock area. The neighbors were very friendly so were the local folks. Every attraction was just as Gary stated 15-20 mins away. We will definitely be regulars at Gary's home on the water.

Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the house on the bayou, until my husband ended up in the ER(kidney stone). Gary was very concerned during our whole ordeal which we appreciated. Gary is an honest and dependable person who wants his occupants the have the best stay possible. Everything you would need is provided. The kids enjoyed trying to catch crabs and watching the fish jump in the water. The sunsets are beautiful. We totally enjoyed our visit, aside from our ordeal and will be back!

Great fish camp!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The large Pier at the back of the house was our favorite spot and where we spent most of our time. It's great for fishing, crabbing and Barbecuing. I loved the fact that it had running water so I could wash the fish goo off my hands. We were able to catch our own bait with a cast net right off the pier. The house was the perfect size for us. I only wish it had a few more towels and was cloths so I didn't have to do laundry everyday but no big deal really. The house is located close enough to Kemah and Galveston that you could drive into eat without spending a lot of time driving. I loved the deck on the back of the house and looked forward to the sunsets every evening. We will definitely rent again but not in June because it was too hot.
