Quick Beach and Bay Access
This is a beautiful home to relax in with quick access to beach or bay! We really enjoyed the large kitchen and living room floor plan-- perfect for kids, and the three large bedrooms. Icy cool AC, and two incredible decks. Marina and other amenities are nearby. Overall, a wonderful stay. Will return!This place is an incredible deal for the price.
Just the spot for family fun!
What a great spot! We spent Memorial Day weekend. Lot's to do. The beach was beautiful and in walking distance (plenty of parking, too). Easy access to the fishing pier. There was a fun open air restaurant and a large swimming pool at the marina. Sight seeing and fabulous dining a short drive away in downtown Galvez. The house was amazing with a large den for family meals, comfortable bedrooms, and decks all around with beautiful views of the bay. Can't wait to go back!
Not a secret for long
We stayed with family in May and fell in love with this place. Two outdoor decks overlooking the West Bay, and a bird sanctuary. Plenty of space to spread out in comfort. Next time will bring my kayak as you can launch into the bay just across from the house. Clean and well equipped with everything you might need. As soon as this place is "discovered" it will be hard to get a reservation!
What a lovely and spacious home to enjoy my vacation! The home was so clean and beautifully furnished. The kitchen and laundry room were both large and well equipped. We had a wonderful time sitting outdoors on the decks. We could even do bird watching from the large windows in the family room as they looked out over the waterway. I highly recommend this home for your vacation.
It was great having 4 separate & comfortable bedrooms, since we had multiple families and big age ranges. We loved the beam ceilings and beach cottage look. Enjoyed having my morning cup of joe on the deck watching the many unique birds and wildlife next to the water. Very relaxing!
The Bayside Sanctuary is truly a bird watchers paradise.
We saw Brown Pelicans, White Ibis, White-Faced Ibis, Wood Stork, Great Blue Heron, Tri-Colored Heron, Kingfisher, Purple Martin, Barn Swallow and Roseate Spoonbills, and this was all while sitting on the porch overlooking the bay and the marsh! For the more serious birders just a short trip in the car will get you to a public kayak launch site where you can kayak over to several islands that serve as rookeries for many species of the birds. The state park also has nesting areas where you can observe the birds from a short distance away. Dos Vacas Muertes is a birding area managed by the Houston Audubon Society and it is within walking distance of the house. The Bayside Sanctuary was perfect for us.
Wow, sounds like you really enjoyed your stay and took advantage of this truly special spot! Thanks for choosing our home.
