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.

Downright Dirty! Read Before booking
BEWARE! STEER CLEAR OF THIS PLACE! Camera outside door & somebody was watching that we left our dog home. Creepy much? And the place is dog friendly w/fee having been paid? If only I could attach pics here & I should've paid better attention to the bad reviews. I have rented many homes, this is the worst 1 & the 1st 1 I was docked on. Upon arrival: Roach & roach egg sac in the cabinet (that I HAD 2 clean up for my family 2 be comfortable), dish dry rack was dirty, food splatter in kitchen on stove, fridge, & cabinets, stickiness on table & cabinets. The fridge freezer STUNK! I had to wash linens from 1 bed as soon as we got there as they clearly were not washed (serious dog hair). There were wet linens in both the dryer & washer that smelled of mildew, yet I was docked for leaving a note & a clean sheet in the dryer (ran out of time to remake bed). One would think the cleaning person would be capable of putting on a fitted sheet while washing the others. I'm pretty sure the other bed sheets weren't washed, but I couldn't possibly stop 2 wash every single linen. I THOUGHT this was a vacation spot, not an extra house 2 clean, so we showered often & I checked for bed bugs (luckily all clear there)! The water is NASTY, very heavy white film, need bottled water for EVERYTHING. 2nd bath was grose, USED soap bar/shampoo container left in the shower. U could CLEARLY tell that bathroom had not been cleaned but I was dinged for it being dirty? I used the vac since the floor had some debris, only 2 find it FULL of dust & hair. I emptied 2 more canisters FULL just within the common area vacuuming. The cleaning person here needs to be re-evaluated. They are just glorifying the place with Pinesol whose smell disinegrates quickly. The 3 window acs & all ceiling fans had caked up dirt on them, light fixture on 1 ceiling fan with wires just hanging, the master bath toliet runs constantly & check out the bathtub mat (moldy). I got dinged for trash? The cans have no lids (all others on the block do), it is out of my control what happens when I leave, all trash was in the trashcan 2 the very best of our ability, buy some lids! It's sad, this place has alot of potential & the owner seemed friendly until he unprofessionally cursed on my invoice? I would NOT recommend this place 2 anyone, ever, like not even if it were the apocalypse! Spend UR $$ elsewhere
We chave no cameras on the premises ! She left the place a mess and roaches havent been seen there since last summer. People that leave a mess complain more than any other people.
Very Peaceful and Just What We Needed!
Property was very relaxing and accommodating. My husband, my mother and I really enjoyed your home. We caught us some flounder and crabs. Thanks so much for everything! Blessings
Not as expected
Quiet place, not the neighborhood we expected. We enjoyed our stay. No boats, no fishing poles To use or rent. Furniture is out dated.
We do have a paddle boat and 3 kayaks to rent it's listed in the dashboard. furniture is 10 years old but bedding and mattresses all less than 1 year old. No we do not supply fishing poles a true fishing person would have thier own. The home is off the beaten path and on a penisula of sorts. If your coming to people watch rent somewhere else.
Terrible place and the owner will lie and not return your deposit!
I have stay over more than ten places and I must say this is the worst of all!! The place is filthy dirty. The carpet is disgusting, there’s cob web on the wall, the place is stink and everything thing out side is rusted. Also, the restroom water is dirty, there’s some gross white like baked soda coming out. WARNING! Stay away and get your refund back ASAP!! This place is not what is supposed to be like the pictures.
Nice quiet close to the beach and attractions but far enough away to get away from the crowds. The property was clean and accommodated our big family.
Great for Families and/or Those Looking to Get Away from It All
This beach cottage is super comfy and if you are into fishing (and I hope you are), you can spend all your time lounging around the cottage. You can literally fish off the deck at the back of the house. Everything is all set up too with ample seating space to accommodate a family of 4 plus. Inside, you have a choice of sleeping areas with 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, 2 additional bunk beds in the living room and 2 large super comfy sofas and a recliner. The kitchen is also super stocked with supplies.
My dogs and I had a great time staying there. The owner, Gary, is one of the nicest guys. We also met several of the neighbors who were also very nice and helpful, recommending different activities, restaurants, and informing you about the area and its history. Additionally, Galveston beaches are just a short 15 minutes away and Houston, a mere 45 minutes. So whether it is peace or quiet you desire, white sandy beaches, or the hustle and bustle of a city with lots of night life, there is something for everyone and you won't be disappointed.
Galveston Beach, Moody Gardens, Kemah Boardwalk, Tangers Outlets Shopping mall, Gulf Greyhound Race Track, The Strand just 10-20 minute drive away . Great fishing with Louis's bait camp 1/2 mile away and access to the Gulf of Mexico.
