Wake up and have your coffee on the large deck of this bay front home while watching the Galveston Bay come to life in the morning.  This is a perfect quiet vacation rental for a family of 12.  Guests have only steps to take to fishing or swimming from the large outdoor area - boathouse included.  Guests may tie off their boats and be ready to go at a moment's notice for fishing, jet skiing or kayaking. Lounge on a deck chair and enjoy a beverage while watching the sunset off the western edge of the Galveston Bay.  Whatever your ideal beach getaway entails, you will love this power house extraordinaire!  While Bay Harbor homes do not have access to a boat ramp, guests may launch their boats at the public boat launch in Jamaica Beach. This home features night fishing lights located underwater as well as overhead fishing lights.  Please keep in mind there is a 10:00 o'clock curfew and noise ordinance in this neighborhood - not a party house!  No proms, weddings, parties of any kind allowed at this property.

If you like to fish this place is perfect for you! We caught quite a few fish off the dock! Plenty of room for a large group to stay comfortably!

Lots of space. Very comfortable. King beds in 4 rooms is the best. The basement room is stinky. Needs a little maintenance here and there. Some dishes were dirty. It’s in the middle of no where. Wish I would have mapped it first before booking. Also has an elevator but was not available to the renters, this I did not appreciate. No extra supplies such as garbage bags or paper towels or toilet paper, things that should be there and provided. It was a long way in and out of town to pick up keys . Nice big place though. Thank you.
