Ben & Linda, I cannot say thank you enough! It was a pleasure meeting you both and I greatly appreciate you sharing your wonderful home with us. From the business side, thank you for making the entire transactions so easy. From a personal standpoint, thanks for meeting me at the house, showing me everything, and offering the use of your equipment. You are wonderful hosts!
In regards to the house…. everything was absolutely wonderful. Everything we needed for our stay was available: cooking utensils, plates, glasses, flatware, kitchen appliances, linens, TV, Stereo, Wi-Fi, etc. The ice machine was a huge bonus for icing coolers for food, drinks, and fish! Everything was very well maintained, and has all the comforts of home. And you undersell the view from the second story deck. Looking down the canal to the bay in the mornings is beautiful, and the watching the sunset over the bay was absolutely breathtaking.
Unfortunately Mother Nature greeted us with an early cool front in the middle of our long fishing weekend, however the screened in deck made for an awesome day of dominos, the hammocks a perfect place to enjoy the breeze and relax, and the ping pong table made for an unexpected tournament. To sit out there and enjoy it all with surround sound, was priceless.
And thanks for all the fishing tips related to fishing off the dock. You were spot on about the tackle we should use and what we should expect to catch. The only thing in the lights after the front were the humongous gar you spoke off, but we thoroughly enjoyed watching them swim through the lights and occasionally surface to greet us.
I could go on and on about your place, but I’ll end it with this. My family makes an annual trip to Galveston every summer: six adults and 3 children. This trip that I am reviewing was our annual fall “Man” trip for 4 days of fishing (7 of us). Your house is the perfect spot for either trip. That said, I will be reaching out to you next summer as we plan our family trip and again for our fall trip.
Ben & Linda, thank you again for everything. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. I felt more like a friend or family, than a client or customer. I really appreciate the personal touch you added to the entire experience. And again, you have a beautiful home. It made for an unforgettable weekend!
