Baywood is located on the Todville Road between La Porte and Seabrook.

Here are some reasons why Baywood, a contemporary development, should be your summer or year around residence.  We are only thirty-five minutes from Downtown Houston and thirty minutes from Galveston, which makes for easy commuting.

The immediate area makes for good shopping in La Porte, Kemah, Seabrook and Baycliff.  We are convenient to good school systems in La Porte and Baycliff.

Baywood offers city living, yet with a beautiful country atmosphere.  We have electricity, gas and telephone available.  We have boating, swimming and some terrific fishing and just plain good old outdoor life available, too.  A private road, a private beach and a private pier are waiting just for you!

We have forty oak wooded sites available for you to choose from, a numer of these with fabulous views of the bay.  The prevailing winds are southeasterly, which means cool days and cool nights for your better living.

The soil is rich black sandy loam and the water pure and soft from 550 feet below the ground.

You know, some people go thousands of miles to find their Baywood, but now, right here in Harris County, you have this opportunity to buy that place you have always wanted.
