When you are there, if feels like you are a million miles from civilization, but you are in a great community and only 15 minutes to a Super Walmart! You drive throught a lot of ranch land and then, suddenly, you emerge in a Jewel of a place with stilt houses on a wonderful bay.
The Texas Court House is a 5 bedroom house located on Caranchua Bay near Port Lavaca, Texas. Located about halfway between Houston and Corpus Christi on the Texas Coast, Caranchua Bay is convenient to all major cities in Texas.
The Texas Court House is a luxurious two story house covered in Texas Hill-Country Limestone for a unique design not found on any other vacation rental on the Texas Coast. It has two full kitchens - one upstairs and one downstairs! It has two full Master Suites upstairs with an oversized tiled shower and large Jacuzzi tub in EACH Master Bath. The three bedrooms downstairs are good sized with one doubling as a gameroom complete with foosball and air hockey for indoor fun!
Enjoy a surround sound experience with a movie on the big screen TV and DVD player using our collection of DVDs. There is even a game system with games for the kids (or young at heart) to play. For the little ones, we have a play set out back and kids toys on site. Even a new basketball goal was recently installed.
Right out the front door is Caranchua Bay and your own 200 ft. lighted pier with direct access to the water. Caranchua Bay is full of redfish, shark, trout, flounder, pompano, gafftops, whiting, croakers, sheepheads & drum. There is no commercial fishing in the Bay so fishing is GOOD! Kayaks and basic fishing gear provided.
Don't forget to look for the dolphins!
Bring your boat! There is a boat launch nearby and you can tie it up to our pier. Also, with your boat, you have easy access to Matagorda Bay, considered by all to have some of the best fishing on the Texas Coast!
For the wildlife enthusiast, there is an abundance of wildlife in the area. You can see deer, raccoon, possum, turkey and other wild animals.
For the birding enthusiast, this area is teaming with a large variety of bird species including Black- necked Stilts, Ibis, Rosette Spoonbills, Reddish Egrets, Gull and Tern species, Least Turns, Rails and Snipe, wintering Geese, Sandhill Cranes and White-tailed Hawks. You might even see endangered peregrine falcons, wood storks or brown pelicans. A loop of the Great Texas Birding Trail goes right down the street the house is on. There are a number of birding sites within a few miles of the house. There is the Aransas Wildlife Refuge nearby with the VERY rare and endangered North American Whooping Crane. There are just over 100 of this bird special alive today and they are right in the area.
We are Children and Pet Friendly. We have five children of our own in several age groups and try to have things for the liitle one to do including board games, video games, a play set outside, fooseball (football), air hockey and a good set of family friendly DVD's!
Texas is warm and humid in this area of the State. Most think of Texas as an dry, arid place filled with Cattle Ranches. That does exist in other parts of the state, but since Texas is the size of France, it has many different areas of climate and fauna. The Texas Court House is located on the coastal plains -- a flat area which is warm in the summer and quite mild in the winter. The photos in the listing were taken in late October and show the still-green vegetation. From the back deck of the house, you can see for 15 miles or more.
Port Lavaca is a wonderful place with multiple activities within a short distance. With some of the best fishing anywhere right out your front door, you might not want to go anyplace else. However, if you do want to venture out, there is a 9 hole golf course nearby with a green fees under $30.00. Also a short drive away is a nice, clean beach with very little wave action for the children. Day trips can be made to the Gulf of Mexico for surfing or deep sea fishing.
