About the property

NO HURRICANE DAMAGE. Bayfront property with 330 foot fishing pier and side pier

Get ready to escape to our amazing 2BR/2BA Laguna Madre Bayhouse, which has the best sunrises and sunsets in the Coastal Bend and spectacular water views! Our bayhouse has a comfy beach style with plenty of lounge space in our living room. The living room has Digital cable Hi-Definition TV so while you are on vacation you can still catch all your favorite shows or sporting events. The living room also has a futon sofa for extra guests. Our kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs, with an open flow into the living room, so the cook never has to miss a minute of the action. This space is perfect for entertaining friends and family with the dining room, kitchen and living room all connected. Our two bedrooms are outfitted with bunks beds for friends and family to hit the hay after a long day out on the bay or beach. The first bedroom has two twin beds with one full sized bed under a twin bed and the other with two twin beds. The second bedroom has one bunk bed with a full sized bed under a twin. If you are anything like us, most of your time is going to be spent hanging out on our great front porch overlooking the Laguna Madre or on our 330 foot pier (please note that there are no lights at the end of the pier), just steps away from our front door. You can tie your boat up on the canal pier or just float in the water with friends and enjoy the sun!

With adjacent wetlands, there is some of the best bird watching in all of the Coastal Bend. Additionally, kids love the crabbing pier on the side of the house and everyone loves the private 330 foot front pier into the Laguna Madre bay. Bluff's Landing Marina is the location of Laguna Reef Restaurant and Bluff's Landing Marina, where you can find all of your fishing needs. Laguna Reef serves typical Gulf Coast fare and has a ‘U-Catchem, We Cookem’ option! South Texas Bait and Boat Launch is the launch ramp that is on the same canal as our side pier. CCA/TPWD Fish Hatchery is the state's first saltwater fish hatchery (only 2 miles away) and a fun place to explore with family and friends.

Each reservation includes applicable taxes, a cleaning fee and a Property Damage Protection insurance policy.

About Spence Collins

I am in the commercial real estate business in Austin and attracted to the investment potential of this area.

Spence Collins purchased this house in 2005

Why Spence Collins chose Flour Bluff

I bought this property for its world-class fishing along with the ability for me to sit on the end of the pier or front porch taking in the relaxing bay breeze. Very easy access to the beach, retail support services but yet somewhat remote.

What makes this house unique

The Laguna Madre and Baffin Bay are world class fisheries.

Nice, quiet, quaint get away

  • 5 of 5

Found at the end of the trail, this little cottage is a great get away spot. Located far enough away from it all to be stone quiet both night and day but close enough to get to anywhere you want to head off to. The house sports two bedrooms and two full baths. Nice living area with a large ceiling fan and HD TV. Large cooking and dining area with everything you need to cook a nice meal.

Very nice - we will be back.

Owner's Response: To my future renters, you, too, can enjoy the tremendous bayviews from the front bedroom, kitchen, and living room just as this renter did. Very peaceful place.

Wonderful house on the bay!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house on the bay was much more than expected. The house is large with plenty of room for several people, and the furnishings were very nice and comfortable. It is in a very convenient location with several restaurants, gas stations, and a grocery store (HEB superstore) all within a couple of minutes of the house. The two piers are an added bonus from which we were able to catch a bunch of fish. The front porch is a great place to sit out, drink some coffee and watch the sunrise or hang out on after a long day on the water. As we were packing up to leave we were already planning our next trip to Spence's Bay House. Can't wait to get back down.
