It's only a short 2-3 minute walk from our vacation rental to the Kemah Boardwalk and the Kemah Lighthouse District, where you'll find shopping, food, fun and entertainment for the whole family. At the house, enjoy the sight and sound of the bay or get on the water with provided kayaks and explore the coast. Watch various birds and boats passing by. Fish from our backyard! There's foosball, ping pong, basketball, outdoor chess/checkers, cornhole and an arcade console with many popular classic games such as Pacman, Frogger, Space Invaders, etc.
There's no social distancing between you and nature...enjoy the outdoors! Our bayfront home is situated right on the shoreline. You will enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the bay from outside as well as inside of the house. There are lounging areas overlooking the gulf...terrific spots for viewing boats, birding, meditation and yoga!
The heart of the house is its open floor plan that combines the living area with the dining room and kitchen. View the bay through numerous windows or just walk outside on the balcony and marvel the amazing scenery of the ocean and its wildlife. There's an additional living area on the first floor.
The single and tandem kayaks can be launched from the concrete pad next to the water. Only launch if you are able and when the water is calm. Life jackets of different sizes are provided.
There's a fish cleaning station with running hot/cold water and sink on the patio. We have caught red fish, flounders, speckled trout and catfish here.
It's a great location to watch the breathtaking fireworks show in Kemah, which is held every Friday night from June to July and New Year (tentative due to current events). Sea of lights can be seen illuminating beautifully from boats in the bay.
All HDTVs are smart, which means you can watch your favorite cable and internet channels by using only the TV remote. You will have access to our YouTube TV account, which broadcasts live TV from 85+ popular cable channels, on-demand shows, local news and sports. There are other video streaming apps installed on the TV that you can log in with your own account.
