Computer and smart-phone withdrawal is possible, but not required for tranquil living in this fishing village. Ideal location for writer or artist who prefers to work uninterrupted. Walk the sea wall for two miles or fish from the pier. Enjoy the sailors and shrimpers who come and go in the dazzling beautiful sunrises and sunsets. If you love birding, you will marvel at the largest number of species found anywhere in the U.S. A replica of the La Belle sailing ship discovered in the Matagorda Bay is just steps away in the marina. Just two blocks away is the museum with an interesting accumulation of Palacios treasures from years gone by. Dine on fresh seafood from our port or savor Mexican or Asian foods from local family owned restaurants. Without the pandemonium of big city distractions, a type of restful detoxification may occur and a peace you won't soon forget can set in. This oversized unit was the private residence of the previous owner and was designed for comfortable living for two people.

About Chip & Carol Woolf
Chip and Carol Woolf are semi-retired
Chip & Carol Woolf purchased this House in 2013
Why Chip & Carol Woolf chose Palacios
Wanted to retire on the water and enjoy the southern breezes, gardening and slowed down lifestyle. The frequent rains and climate make just about everything grow into a jungle and I love that. Facing the bay with the occasional wind storm, thunder and lightening is exciting and makes me smile. We love our neighbors who have become part of our extended family. I can't imagine why more people have not found Palacios but glad we did. It was a glorious gift.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy the almost constant breeze coming in from the bay. The climate is great throughout the year and is enjoyed by winter Texans and Snowbirds escaping harsh conditions found further North in the winter months. Summers are for relaxing in the breezes without excessive heat

Lovely home, beautiful area, friendly people!
First, Chip and Carol are a delightful couple who made our stay in Palacios wonderful. They were at hand for anything we needed, to tell us about the area, and immediately responded to any of our questions about the property. My husband and I travel all over and have rented several homes. This home was the most elegant and exquisite home we have rented. The furniture was high quality and the home is decorated as if it were their own home. We fully enjoyed our long stay, especially the water view, the access to fishing in the bay, and the great walk on the seawall. We would definitely rent again from Chip and Carol! Thank you for making our stay so relaxing and lovely.
Thanks for such a generous and lovely review. We treasure our guests like you and always hope to have you return on your next stay in this area. Thank you again and anxious to see you on your return visit. Best regards to you both. Carol and Chip
A Peaceful Stay
We had a relaxing time in Palacios...just as planned. Our host was lovely and the weather nice. Will stay again.
Great place to stay!
Great place to stay, very roomy!
Thank you so much for your kind review. You were great and certainly welcome anytime. Come again soon. :) Carol and Chip
The property was awesome, very clean and nice place.
We went to this area specifically for fishing and this was a great place for it. The owners are also very friendly people and we'd definitely stay again.
wonderful location in Palacios
The overall facility if beautiful and well stocked by the owners. If they could get a regular double bed into that front bedroom instead of having to use the convertible sofa in the living room for the second couple, they would probably get more return rentals. The sofa is great for the kids, but not ideal for adults. Otherwise everything was great!
Great place and great folks

Palacios offers warm hospitality and some of the best water views on the Texas coast. Visitors will enjoy local shopping, great fishing, world-class birding, and a mile plus stroll along the seawall. Fresh coffee and a good book that can be found on Main Street help define the unhurried atmosphere in our 'City by the Sea'. Visit the City by the Sea Museum for a look back at a 1600's French explorer ship, the LaBelle. Some Palacios residents have built a 1/2 scale replica of this ship and it is docked at the South Bay Marina. Santa arrives in Palacios on the replica LaBelle each Christmas season. Santa by sea seems appropriate since the Port of Palacios is home to one of the largest shrimp fishing fleets on the Gulf Coast.
