About Donald (Don) or Nancy Greenstein
Don and Nancy Greenstein: We are an educated and retired (33 years married) couple that live year round in the main residence on the property. Don is a native Houstonian whose family summer vacationed in the Galveston Bay area since the 1950s, Nancy is a retired business-owner from Ft. Wayne, IN. We have lived in the Galveston Bay area together for many years. The area is private, romantic and relaxed; the climate is semi-tropical with warm bay breezes year round. We enjoy boating, dining, golfing and family activities on the property and on Galveston Bay.
Donald (Don) or Nancy Greenstein purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Donald (Don) or Nancy Greenstein chose Bacliff
Don is a Houston native and has vacationed in the Bacliff/Bayview/Kemah, TX area all his life. I love the area's climate, water entertainment access and relaxed style of living. The seafood dining in the area is unmatched in the state of Texas. The productivity of offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the Galveston coast is unmatched in the U.S. The South Texas coast is the premier site saltwater entertainment mecca of the Houston area and South eastern Texas. This property has the best view (270 degree) of the Galveston Bay and the Houston Ship Channel that runs though it. Annually, on Fridays in the months of June and July there are waterfront hour-long fireworks displays that are visible from our waterfront decks. The wildlife (sea gulls, pelicans, porpoises) behavior displays from our decks are phenomenal.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are only a few waterfront locations to stay on Galveston bay: ours is one of the most popular in the area. It is competitively priced and combines privacy, seclusion and cozy accommodation for a weekend get-away for busy working couples, honey-moon and anniversary couples either for short or extended stays. The panoramic views of Galveston Bay are exclusive to this property. We have operated this vacation rental for ten of the fifteen years we have lived here to rave (mostly five-star) reviews from locals and out-of-town travelers alike.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay tremendously. Don and Nancy were so kind and made us feel right at home. We will be back!
Thank you so much for your kind review. We hope you'll be back soon, July 4th fireworks are wonderful on the Bay.

Enchanting cozy cottage by the bay awaits those willing to venture past the bright lights of Kemah! We were delighted with the amenities and the views. February tends to be temperamental where weather is concerned, but don’t let fog or rain keep you away from the area. Hosts left a personal welcome note and a bottle of champagne for us to enjoy. We will definitely recommend to others! Thank you for a lovely experience.
Nice and quiet stay
We really enjoyed our stay. Don was very friendly and welcoming. He made sure our stay was comfortable. It’s close to Kemah board walk and several other fun places.
Rest and Relaxation
We enjoyed our stay and are already planning a return stay. Access to the private deck and access to the water was just what we needed! Only thing that may of increased our pleasure would of been a Keurig for coffee. Don and Nancy were very accomodating to our schedule!
Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and especially using the lower, private deck. The harvest moon is beautiful over the water.
Please do visit us again. We recommend the 4th of July. Fireworks on the Bay are exceptional.
