About the property

3 BR, 2 Ba w/ bay views, double tier deck & pool. Close to pier and boat launch

Sunny San Leon is all about fun! As soon as you arrive, you'll discover the Lone Star Fish has been completely updated inside and out and decorated with a rustic Texas & fishing paradise flair. Outside, you'll find a new double tier deck that is great for cooking outside or going to the top at the Parrot's Nest for bay breezes and sunrise/sunset views. Watch the Quaker parrots get settled in for the evening at dusk. Inside, its cozy enough to sleep 6 but all the comforts of home have been considered.

Time seems to slow down in San Leon as its still a quiet, laid back town but close to a lot of fun things to do. The Kemah Boardwalk is minutes away and Galveston Island is a short drive. There are also plenty of restaurants along the water that serve daily fresh catch seafood like Top Water Grill, Gilhooleys and their local legend oysters, Bubba's Shrimp Palace, Noah's Ark to name a few. If you love fishing, Lone Star Fish is conveniently located near several fishing piers, boat ramps, full service marina and fishing charter businesses.

**Optional PRIVATE 2 hour cruise aboard a Hunter 38 sailboat for a max of 4 people for $200, all inclusive of taxes, fuel, bottled water, soft drinks and waste services. If this of interest, please specify in your inquiry. Friday night fireworks over the bay begin in June and go through July. Many private and group charter cruises book up for this popular event well in advance!

About Brenda Veseleny

Keith was raised in Indiana but came to Texas as soon as he could and graduated in Houston. A natural Aquarian, Keith has spent his life around the water and is a licensed boat captain. Brenda is a native Texan and being the youngest of 8 children, grew up with the motto "there's always room for one more". We live in the Seabrook area and enjoy sailing, boating and all the beauty and pleasure of waterfront living around the bay. We have 3 kids and we both run our own businesses in this area. Brenda is a real estate broker in the Clear Lake area and Keith runs a web based cosmetic procedure marketing site. 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.

Why Brenda Veseleny chose San Leon

What's not to love about Sunny San Leon? The bay, the parrots, the yummy seafood restaurants and laid back frame of time. We saw this poor house steps away from bay that was damaged after Ike and never repaired. So we bought it, stripped it back to the framing and started over! Because of its proximity to great fishing connections, the birth of the Lone Star Fish began taking shape. A little bit of Texas, a lot of fishing.

What makes this house unique

As you are driving down Bayshore Dr parallel to the bay, you can feel yourself begin to relax. Time seems to slow down in San Leon as its still a quiet, laid back town but close enough to a lot of fun things to do. Catch the nice breezes outside while watching the wild Quaker parrots get settled in for the evening at dusk. Enjoy the wide views of Galveston Bay, especially at sunset. If you love fishing, Lone Star Fish is conveniently located near several fishing piers, boat docks and fishing charter businesses. There are also a unique assortment of fresh seafood restaurants and bars in San Leon to enjoy!

Loved the deck! Very clean, cool and comfortable. Location was perfect for visiting sights.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed. It was roomy enough for grandparents, parents and two teens. During a very hot spell we were cool with plenty of air conditioning. We took advantage of all the great restaurants including Top Water Grill ( great shrimp). We visited Galveston and the local area which were conveniently close. Spent time with friends and family in the area and came back to a very comfy bed at night. Loved the deck with room to eat or just spend time watching the birds and enjoying the gulf breezes.

Cozy comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

This house is as described (less the pool). I appreciated the late check out time, proximity to 18th Street Pier and quiet neighborhood.

Perfect home for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 kids, 2 parents, 2 grandparents) found this house to be the perfect stopping place for us to vacation. We took the kids to NASA twice, moody gardens one afternoon, and the beach at Galveston twice... all within decent driving distance.

The house is perfectly furnished, enough blankets, towels, pillows, dishes, and my girls were thrilled to discover the tv seems to have limitless episodes of American Ninja Warrior available plus the Disney channel 😂? the kids loved the house and the bunk bed room!

Owners are thoughtful hosts, and replied quickly to questions I sent both via email and text. I highly recommend this home for your stay.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for quiet time after a busy day. Centered between Galveston beach and Kemah Boardwalk. We enjoyed the bird watching from the upper deck. My boys were thrilled to find they had a carpet ball table and cornhole game available. I was nicely surprised at the welcome gifts that were awaiting our arrival. Beds very comfortable. Washer and dryer very convenient. Wifi and satellite tv provided. Owners very pleasant! Received my deposit within hours of departure! A define place to return. No regrets here. 👍?

Fantastic Bay Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Lone Star Fish is a beautiful vacation rental! We were so delighted by this cozy home-away-from-home that we regretted not having booked a longer stay. The house was impeccably clean, smelled divine, came fully stocked with everything we needed (and a few surprises like fresh flowers and muffins), and offered both indoor and outdoor games that the whole family enjoyed. We had a wonderful time here and hope to return one day!

Definitely a gem! I highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property! My family of 5 adults were there this week, and throughly enjoyed! Everything was great and so appealing: comfort, coziness, decorating, cleanliness, responsiveness of the owner. We used the kitchen and grill quite a bit, which were great, and easy to use. We loved the 'Parrot's Deck' up above everything! It is a great place to view the birds (Bring binoculars), and sunrise/sunsets. One thing, is that you must be able to do stairs, to get in/out of house, and to use the Parrots Deck. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!!!
