Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was wonderful- quiet and relaxing. Loved watching the dolphins swimming in the bay from the porch. We hope to make a return visit soon. Thank You.

We loved the relaxing location with beaurtiful sunrises and wonderful starey nights from the back deck. The house was a good size for the two couples on our trip. Very close to all the entertainment Kemah has to offer. Really appreciated the comfy beds, cleanliness of this house, especially the baths, the shower areas looked like brand new tile and grout! I am recommmending it to friends and family and looking forward to returning myself.

Loved the house!

We had a girls weekend at the bay house and had such a relaxing time. The pictures do not do the house justice. Our last morning, we enjoyed the sunrise and dolphins swimming in the bay. We enjoyed the house so much we have talked about renting it again!

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5
We live in Houston and our daughter was getting married in League City. We needed to be close to Clearlake and the bay for 3 days of wedding activities. Myself, two sisters, husband, son, wife and granddaughter had a wonderful weekend. Sitting on the deck with our coffee and gazing out at the bay in the morning was heavenly. We created so many memories on the bay. Beautiful, relaxing view! Close enough to touristy places, but far enough away to feel like your are in a nice residential waterfront neighborhood.

Extended Stay

  • 5 of 5
I had the opportunity to stay at the Galveston Bay house for the last month of spring as I house-hunted in the area. I was fortunate to experience fantastic weather and a great breeze off of the bay kept things nice and cool. The property is conveniently located to the Kemah Boardwalk, old Seabrook, and Pasadena. You cannot quite see Kemah from the deck, but if you walk to the edge of the property on the bay you can. There are many types of birds and other critters (raccoons, etc.) that hang out near the bay and my wife caught a glimpse of dolphins swimming nearby one day. The beach at El Jardin was not that great, but it could have been time of year.

The unit was nicely appointed with new appliances and such, but don't expect all of the bells and whistles that you might find in a newer home or condo. There was plenty of space in the closets for clothes and luggage. The owners were very helpful and accommodating.

My two dogs had a blast; they loved hanging out on the deck. I brought a baby gate to keep them from going down the stairs (would recommend bringing one if you have small children). The Seabrook City Park is located a little over a quarter of a mile from the property. It was easy to walk the dogs there daily.

Keep in mind when making plans, you will have to climb stairs. The house sits on piers!

Wonderful escape

My family and I were very happy with our stay. We had the fireworks display on the 4th and the sunrise over the bay in the morning. It was truly a place that all of us love and enjoyed. We hope to come again.
