An updated 1940's era cottage minutes from Houston and Kemah.
About Michelle Ferrell
I'm a native Houstonian who moved to Chicago, Orlando, and Los Angeles before returning to Houston. I live in Houston with my husband, two kids, and dog. Traveling and exploring new places is my one my favorite pastimes. I have visited 23 National Parks in the last 7 years and I would struggle to name a favorite because they were all amazing! I am an avid knitter and quilter. I love exploring with color while creating. Growing up I spent a week at the beach every summer. I love the smell of the salt air, the view of the water, and the sounds of the surf and seagulls. I know you will find Casita Azul a welcome escape from the everyday just as I do. As a host, I look forward to interacting with interesting people and welcoming you to my cozy beach cottage!
Michelle Ferrell purchased this House in 2018
Why Michelle Ferrell chose La Porte
I love sitting in the sun room and watching the boats slip by in the bay. There is a an antique glider that is perfect for curling up with a good book. The sea breezes and coastal decor are so relaxing!
What makes this House unique
This property is offers beach access and is close to Houston. I love walking the dog down the beach front path. You can skip the long drive, road construction, and crowds in Galveston. Kemah is also within a short drive or ride share to enjoy the many events down there.

Perfect Beach Cottage
Cottage was lovely, wonderful sun room and front and back porch. Michelle had everything one could need and responded promptly to all emails. I highly recommend the cottage.
Relaxing stay at Casita Azul
Our family enjoyed our time at this cute Casita. Michelle went above and beyond to ensure the home was well stocked and even left us Smores supplies! Sylvan beach is within walking distance; it’s man made beach and on the smaller side but free and perfect for kids and dogs. We hope to return next summer.
Clean, well appointed, close to beach
Great location for getting to and from South Houston. Stayed for a week while working and loved the pool and 5min walk to beach! Can see ocean from front. Well stocked, not one thing missing that you may need. Thank you!!!
This house was everything we needed for our trip. Super close to the beach, clean, well stocked from furnishings to extras, and very secure. We were in town for work at the local raceway but wanted to have privacy and extra activities around for the baby. The house fit the bill perfectly! Michelle was very helpful and provided all of the information we needed ahead of time. We will surely return next year!
Clean and well equipped
3 adults and 2 pre-teen boys stayed for a few days during Spring Break. We used this as a jumping off point to tour nearby Johnson Space Center (NASA), Kemah, and Schlitterbahn in Galveston. House is perfectly situated to get to those places quickly & easily. Plus it is right across from a public park with a fishing pier, swimming beaches, and public boat ramps. On a clear day, we could see boats out in the bay plus the boys could go explore the park and all areas across the street. La Porte is a very small town and feels safe. There is a Kroger grocery store within 5 minutes drive of the house for everything you need.
The house has been recently remodeled. Everything is practically new and you can tell that a lot of thought has been put into making guests feel comfortable. Everything was provided that we needed including plenty of toilet paper, trash bags, lots of extra towels, etc. Comfortable beds and plenty of room for us. 3 bedrooms allowed for one couple in the master king bedroom, two boys in 2nd bedroom with two twins, and a single adult in the 3rd queen bedroom with the extra bunk beds. Could have easily slept one more adult in the queen and a few additional kiddos in the bunk beds. The front porch area and sunroom are great places to enjoy the view or read a book. Washer and dryer came in handy.
The owner, Michelle was great about communicating all the details, was very friendly and easy to work with. She provided firestarter logs, a welcome bottle of wine, and supplies to make smores in the backyard firepit, which we all enjoyed.
I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a quiet place to get away from it all or as we did, as a home base to visit many places in the area.
Wonderful Experience..lovely location, fantastic house... all u need to carry is your clothes!!!
What really sets this house apart from the other VRBO properties we've stayed in the past is the wonderful personal touch! The lil welcome note, the wine, smores making kit for the kids, well furnished pantry, furnished bathrooms with everything u could possibly need made it feel like a perfect amalgamation of a boutique hotel and a home! We loved the location.. quiet and with a view, yet very close to everything one might want to do or have access to! We will definitely come back! Thanks Michelle!
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! We strive to make each stay personal and inviting to the guests. Yes, please come and stay again. You guys were great guests and we would love the opportunity to host your family again.
