Relax, Fish, Swim, Beachcomb, Watch Birds & Barges in Our Quaint Coastal Rental! Sargent, Texas
- 1200-1400 Sq Ft
- 3 (Sleeps 4)
SARGENT, TEXAS, is a small community, with only 500 full time residents, that offers great fishing with easy access to East Matagorda Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. This hidden little gem is a fisherman's paradise, surrounded by open land and located just 74 miles southwest of Houston. Sargent is nestled on the coast between Freeport and Matagorda and near the towns of Lake Jackson and Bay City. It has the bare necessities of shops including grocery, hardware, a few campgrounds, and only one motel. Sargent is only a day trip away from Galveston (1 1/2 hours) and 2 1/2 hours from Rockport.
This quaint home is situated on Sargent Island, 1.3 miles from the last Swing Bridge in Texas. Our long fishing "boardwalk" on the ICW is equipped with underwater fishing lights, rod holders, 2 crab traps, and large fish cleaning table with water. A public boat launch and our home's double driveway allow boaters easy access to fishing in Matagorda Bay or Caney Creek. The beach is just a short walk across the two lane road. Fill your days relaxing, fishing, bird-watching (the property is near the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge), or swimming and beach-combing along our uncrowded coastline. Occasionally, bottlenose dolphins are sighted! From our dining table, you can view both barges navigating the canal and shrimp boats working the coast.
When you've had enough fun in the sun, enjoy some great family "down time" playing cards or viewing a movie from our DVD collection. We also have a large shaded area under the second level where you can read a book in the cool breeze, set up a blender on the Texas bar, have a picnic, or just take in the Gulf air. End your day watching the beautiful Sargent sunsets.
Our home will comfortably accommodate 4 adults and a couple of small children. We have central heat and air, with ceiling fans in all rooms upstairs. There are several recliners for your comfort. Downstairs, there is a window ac unit and a space heater in winter. A small couch provides some seating.
The upstairs master has a king Sleep Number bed. The second bedroom has a full bed. Downstairs is a bunk bed with a full bed on bottom and twin on top. Upstairs, the bathroom has a shower/tub combo; the bathroom downstairs has an extra large double-headed shower.
