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.

Peaceful and Relaxing
Perfect for unwinding after work. Caught some nice reds and plenty of blue crabs. Highly recommend to anyone coming to the area for work and relaxation.
Enjoyed the week. Overall the property was nice. It was quiet and peaceful. Able to crab and fish daily. Will stay here again if the opportunity arises.
Quiet, comfortable with a nice view from the kitchen and living room.
Comfortable beds and modern furnishings with all the facilities, appliances and cookware of home. Although we'd brought our own, it was well stocked with soap for the washing machine, dishwasher and sink as well as other supplies. The wheelchair ramp was a big help for me It's about a 20 minute drive from Galveston. We hope to stay there again.
Wonderful family vacation
Loved the house! Our family had a wonderful vacation. We loved the kayaks and paddle boat. We had such a beautiful view of the sunset. Gary was very kind he communicated with me prior to arrival and communicated with me when we were leaving to see how our stay was. We would definitely recommend staying here !
The day we got there had to text the owner about the roaches. Heard nothing from him until the day after we left. The linens on the bed were dirty. Toilets,stove, refrigerator was dirty. I was charged for a paddle boat you could not use the steering doesn't work. Out of my deposit he is charged me 50 for kayaks that was not used and 50 for cleaning how stupid is that.I left it a lot cleaner than I found it. I stay in a lot of places but this was the worst. We had to put our groceries in trash bags and tie them up to keep roaches out. Really nasty place.
Gary and family have a lovely home. The kids were able to play by the doc and enjoy the peace and quiet. We enjoyed crabbing and bbq. We have already recommended to our friends.
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.
