Bright and clean, this high-end Dickinson getaway will be just the place to call home base on your next vacation. Dickinson Bayou is a calm retreat with very little boat traffic, perfect for families who want to enjoy the water. Entertaining the whole gang will be a blast, as the open layout will allow everyone to mingle regardless of where they choose to kick back and relax. Lightly colored walls and central air conditioning will ensure that everyone is comfortable. Though you can head out and try the local cuisine with ease, sticking around can be just as good with the well-equipped full kitchen offering everything guests need to whip up delicious meals. The family-size pergola may be your favorite place to relax. The free WiFi and large flatscreen TV in the living room can provide ample entertainment as the stars come out. A desk space is available if you need to finish some remote assignments before relaxing!

What's nearby:
Dickinson Bayou is in a fantastic location, due to it being roughly midway between Houston and Galveston! Some must-see attractions include Moody Gardens, the Strand Historic District, and the Pleasure Pier with its close proximity to the Kemah Boardwalk and Downtown Aquarium. Houston offers attractions including NASA, the Houston Zoo, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Museum of Arts. There is a public boat launch close by for the ability to enjoy boating, fishing, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and more. Don’t miss out on visiting Main Street Bistro in League City, Topwater Grill, and Pier 6 Seafood in San Leon, TX on the bay. Also, we recommend Mosquito Cafe in Galveston.

First I want to mention that this was not my original vacation stay. My original booking was apparently “inaccessible” but they made up with this beautiful cottage. This cottage home was beautiful and roomy. It had a large backyard, 3 large bedrooms and 2 beautiful bathrooms. My family and I really enjoyed our stay. The only thing I really didn’t like was there was no tv in any of the rooms only the living room but that’s ok.
