se habla Espanol.

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.

Texas Court House - Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My siblings and I stayed at this remarkable home from July 18 through July 26. The Texas Court House is more than the owners advertise. It is truly a home away from home. The home was very clean and well furnished. The atmosphere of this retreat fit all of our needs ranging from true fishing experiences to fun with the little ones on the play ground equipment out back. We watched beautiful sunsets and sunrises on the pier. The porpoises came within 20 feet of the pier several times, entertaining all that were present. We launched our boat at a nearby boat ramp and enjoyed the experience of the bay in many ways. We followed several porpoises, watching them majestically play in the water. We found a sand beach just a few miles out in the bay that yielded a playground for the little ones and fishing for the older ones. The house was furnished with everything that one could dream of from games to home entertainment systems. There was more than adequate room to prepare a meal for more than 20 individuals without having to rush or get in each other's way. The beds were comfortable to all. There is a small beach just at the start of the pier, which provided hours of fun and enjoyment for the little ones to collect shells and play in the water. Their were kayaks to be used by the guests, but the wind was a little too strong most of the days for unexperienced kayakers to attempt. We visited with several of the locals and learned when the fish were biting and where to go in the boat. Our entire family created wonderful memories during this stay. To say the least, this is truly a magnificent location to rent, very reasonably priced and strategically located to obtain all of your personal needs. Thank-you for allowing us to rent the Texas Court House. See you next year.

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We all had an excellent time at this beautiful vacation home. The home with its beautiful decor was squeaky clean, and came well-equipped with towels, extra blankets, pillows, kitchen utensils, video games, DVDs, fishing rods and even kayaks. Kids and adults had a blast at the private pier. We went fishing, kayaking and got to see the dolphins!! We also want to leave an extra word of thanks to the kind owners and their very trustworthy housekeeper who found the Kindle that we left at the property by mistake, kept it in safe custody until they were able to deliver it in safe hands. What an incredibly fabulous vacation we all had!!! We'd love to come back again!!!

Family of 22 Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in your house for Thanksgiving break 2013 with around 22 people. Most of which were teenagers and below. We had so much fun and made so many memories. The house was so nice. Plenty of rooms for all the adults ( kids slept here and there, different place every night). Beds were comfortable. Plenty of tvs and game systems for the kids to play. Kitchen table was huge, may of nights playing games with the kids and meals. Neighbors were friendly. Never found the alligator, guess it was too cold for him too. Not hard to get back into town for shopping and eating. We took the kids down the the canal off 35 and fished all day caught plenty of fish. Will recommend your place to all my friends or anyone that wants to vacation in the area.

Best Family Reunion Ever

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 14, stayed in this beautiful home from July 21 through July 27. From the time we arrived until the morning we left we were impressed with the fact that this house was equipped with more features and cooking/eating utensils that anyone could wish for. Not to mention the two kitchens, one up and one down made food prep for a large group much easier. Bring your food and clothes that's all you will need. Everyone enjoyed the fishing off the lighted pier, especially the kids, most of the fish were small but caught many different types. We have rented other homes in the past along the gulf and all were nice, but this home is outstanding. We will visit it again. Thanks to Tim and his family for allowing us to visit their home. We will not soon forget our best family reunion ever. Oh, don't forget you will need a fishing license if you are 17 or over.
