Welcome to Casita Azul!
Discover fun in every direction! Convenient getaway overlooking bay and steps away from beach area...that's right, a beach destination without the long drive to Galveston. Only minutes from Houston and Kemah, you will discover all that lovely La Porte, the Bay area and Kemah have to offer. Your escape begins as soon as you drive up and enter "the flip flop zone".
Our motto for Casita Azul is "mi casa es tu casa" because we truly want you to feel like our home is your home. Casita Azul has been updated inside and out for your vacation enjoyment. This charming 1940's era home has been decorated in a soothing coastal pallet and design style. Inside, you will find coastal themed bedding and decor, wood look tile floors, original refinished hardwoods, step in showers, bath and lighting fixtures, and more!
Although Casita Azul is cozy, it is well laid out with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with room enough for 2 families vacationing together to be comfortable. Outside, there is an expansive deck in front with conversational seating to enjoy the bay views and breezes while you're cooking on the grill. Have your morning cup of coffee and enjoy beautiful sunrises and the breeze rolling over the bay in the large sun room. Enjoy outdoor games in the fully fenced back yard, a fireside chat at the fire pit or just float in the seasonal above ground pool surrounded by trees.
There are LOADS of things to do within a short drive. The ever popular Kemah Boardwalk is 9 miles away; NASA Space Center, the Battleship of Texas, the Houston Zoo and much more!

We own a sailboat to enjoy in and around the bay but together, they have also enjoyed sailing in the Virgin Islands, Greece, St Lucia and the Grenadines and more.
Brenda Veseleny purchased this House in 2015
Why Brenda Veseleny chose La Porte
We bought Casita Azul simply because of the amazing views of Galveston Bay and morning sunrises.....and who can forget the bay breezes!!! Since we already live in the area, we know what a treat it is to be close to all of the water fun. We fell in love with the endless views but then discovered all of the hidden treasures that La Porte has to offer for entertainment and knew we had to share the same with others.
What makes this House unique
Not only did we fall in love with the location, but Casita Azul had a certain charm, having been built in the 1940's, we wanted to give the home the love it needed by completing an extensive restoration. We loved the small porthole windows, the abundant sunroom and deck. During the renovation, it was important to us to add some touches here and there that would make it an extra special retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. We hope you enjoy this little treasure we have created.

Great house across the street from Sylvan beach. Easy access to Houston, NASA, and Galveston.
Fantastic property, great Christmas!
I reserved this property as a space to celebrate Christmas with family, who were still recovering from Harvey in the nearby area.
The home was clean and location was fantastic! Home and kitchen were well-stocked with everything we'd need to cook Christmas dinner. Cable, TV, and WiFi were welcome additions. Plenty of room for kids and family to sit, hang out, and have a good time. Especially enjoyed the fire pit out back, which was a great on a cool winter night. Casita Azul is very clearly set up for warmer weather and time out in the water, but it worked just as well for winter. The nearby beach and pavilion was a great place to watch the sunrise Christmas morning.
Reservation was easy, no problems with accessing the home day of. The addition of a card and banana bread on arrival were nice. My family loved the home. We've even talked about starting a new Christmas tradition out at the home. Thanks to Brenda and the owners for their part in us having a great Christmas! Happy holidays!
Beautiful cottage across from the beach. We loved the air conditioned sun room! The perfect relaxing weekend we needed 🙂� I would recommend casita Azul for a relaxing getaway.
Great location and beautiful home. We would stay here again in a heart beat. We had no complaints!
Perfect location for a vacation.
Location is perfect for venturing out to Seabrook, Kemah Boardwalk and the Space Center. The house is cozy and includes everything you need. We will be returning!
