      Thank you for a fantastic home away from home. The decor is fabulous and makes you feel as if you are in a high end hotel. I went for work at Johnson Space Center; it was a quick jet up NASA Rd. One every morning. The atmosphere was extremely relaxing. The only down fall of the week was the extremely low temperatures and ice storm (In Houston???). This caused the pipes freeze..leaving us with no water. Only for a morning as the owners worked quickly and efficiently, so we had water by the time we arrived back at the house. We will definitely be renting again if the whole family comes as I go to the area at least once a year. Thank you, Fred and Sandra. You have made us believers in VRBO and we will be using this site for our summer trip to New York state. Unfortunately I don't know how any house could be better this one. Thanks again!!

      My purpose to stay here at the Pound's Bayhouse was because of having to be out of our home due to smoke damage - yes, I left a pot of eggs on boil and left the house for several hours only to come home to SMOKE! So, we had to find another place to stay while the house was being professionally cleaned. I selected this home because it was pet-friendly and I had my faithful friend of 15 years, a Whippet, with us. The home was perfect for us - the size was very adequate for our stay. The view of the bay, undeniably peaceful. All the comforts of home, and a charmingly decorated! The Pounds' were very accommodating to our needs and I would highly recommend their Bay House for vacationing or a home away from home as in our situation!


      A Great Getaway

      I had to do business in Houston for a week and wanted to mix in some quality downtime. The Galveston Bay House was a perfect setting for a relaxing time. The location is excellent, the neighbors are nice, everything worked, and the owners were very helpful with any questions I had. There are some really cool restaurants in the area (including Frenchy's), and it's centrally located to all sorts of other shopping (and drinking). I would (and have) recommended the Galveston Bay House to my friends, and I look forward to returning later in the year.


      Christmas Week Stay

      We spent a week in this Kemah house. The house is just as represented. We had a great time. The place clean, comfortable and well appointed. The view of Galveston Bay is beautiful. the wrap around deck provided a great spot to relax and watch the total lunar eclipse. Weather got cold a few days later. I checked, and I am pretty sure that the owner can't do much about Mother Nature.


      Wonderful New Year

      We had a very nice time staying in this home for New Years. I grew up in the area and have family there, but wanted somewhere to stay with just my husband and kids. The children slept great in their rooms and my husband and I enjoyed sitting on the deck, drinking wine, and looking at Galveston Bay. The house was clean, comfortable, and stocked with anything you could need in the kitchen. The rental/check in process was easy. We would definitely stay here again.

      Our stay at the Bay House was great. The view from the deck is outstanding. Being sailors we loved watching the sail boats in the bay. All attactions and restaurants are nearby. The owners were easy to work with and were ready to help if need. I will be recommending this place to our friends. I know we will be staying here again.
