Although the dare says April 2013, we actually stayed there in April of 2012. The house is beautiful with a nice view. It's also close to the boardwalk which is a plus. We ate at T Bone Tom's and it was excellent. We wanted to come back this year, but unfortunately when hubby called for availability, they told him it...

The walls are thin, the head board was not secure and the a/c was turned up to 80 drgrees during the night. No breakfast was served, instead a $20 gift card to...

My husband and I went for a weekend getaway and stayed here. The property is absolutely beautiful, well maintained and a terrific location. We sat on the private balcony of the Duke Room and watched the gulf, the boats, birds, and the gorgeous sunrise (worth waking up early for)!. What a relaxing time we had.

We stayed two nights... A weekend getaway while on business in Houston. We loved the beach house, the amazing 'Duke' room... With it's views out over the bay, the jetty and the fact it's 2 minutes walk to kemah boardwalk. Tina welcomed us fantastically, and made us feel right at home. The sunrise from the duke's balcony was beautiful. Great...

This was the most beautiful beach house we've ever stayed in. It was beautifully decorated with class and good taste. Our weekend was quiet and romantic and we enjoyed the wonderful view of the ocean. We felt like we had the whole house to ourselves! It was only a short walk to the Kemah Boardwalk for dinner.

The White Texas Pelican was everything we could possibly have hoped for and more. From the moment we booked the B @ B, to the meeting of our hostess, Tina, we were treated like royalty. The home is beautiful, clean, well equipped and located next to the water and the Boardwalk. Sunset and sunrise are breathtaking from "The Duke". Tina...

Very enjoyable stay in Kemah. Loved the golf carts: so much fun to explore Kemah open air. Kim has, for some reason, decided not to provide breakfast on Sunday, but when I asked, she decided to make an exception (and she apparently did the same for the people sharing the house with us). Be aware that Kim does not cook...

This was the first time my husband and I had stayed at a B&B, and had a wonderful experience. We had a late check in and had the most pleasurable experience with the customer service phone rep Jennifer. She was very helpful in making sure we knew the ends & outs of the property even if it was 11pm :)....
