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 an elevator, foosball, ping pong, basketball and an arcade console with many popular classic games such as Pacman, Frogger, Space Invaders, etc. 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!

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 a separate 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 are provided. There's a fish preparation area with running water and sink on the patio. We have caught red fish, flounders, speckled trout, catfish and crabs here. The water gets deep quickly just few feet from the shoreline. 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 YouTube TV, 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. The property is surrounded by twelve tall and mature palms that weathered many storms, hence the name. It's a special sanctuary that will provide unforgettable memories. Other things to note: Our beds can accommodate up to 12 guests, including children. Please check the bed size in each room so you are comfortable with the sleeping arrangement. There are outside security cameras with no audio recording surrounding the property. The elevator is 32' wide and 40' deep. It can only be used in special cases with prior authorization. No children is allowed inside without an adult present. The propane gas grill has a grilling surface of 20.5' x 13 '. Fireplace is not in service. You will have access to the house, pier and yard. Doors labeled as 'Owner', attic, garage and anything that is locked are private. Driveway gate remains open during your stay. Our property is adjacent to the neighbor's empty lot, which is off-limit. The property line is marked by several metal posts.More
