Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay in the condo was a very enjoyable one. You have plenty of

room, everything is clean and neat and the beach is just a few steps

away. The owners are very courteous and prompt to any needs that you

have. They conduct themselves in a very professional and friendly

manner. We can highly recommend staying here and hope to ourselves

be returning.

Dirty and very dated. Mightve been a nice place in the 70s

  • 1 of 5
Ive stayed here twice. Both times the owner has been nothing but rude to me upon checkout. This place is not worth the hassle unless its last minute and everything else is booked.

The place is a dump, its outdated, the bed is disgusting, the sheets look like they are from the 1980s, the pillows are brown and old, the towels are moldy, there is mold in the shower, the dishes are dirty, the appliances are from the 80s (literally) , the AC turns off mid day, the internet is slow, the grill is rusted out, the common grounds are in disrepair and pool is filthy The stairs are rusty with sharp edges and very dangerous for children. The deck has exposed nails and splinters. The kitchen table is covered in plastic wrap. The owner hasn't put a dime into this place and freaks out if a closet light is left on at checkout.

This is not a nice place to take your family.

Owner's Response: Our condo is regularly maintained inside and out. The vast majority of guests are very pleased with the overall experience of staying at our condos in Matagorda. We have lots of guests that come back every year and some more than once a year. While we try to provide our guests with the ultimate and best enjoyment possible, we are realistic in recognizing that we cannot please every guest all the time. Unfortunately this guest decided to write a bad review about us after staying with us three times since last year. Before his last stay I asked him to please make sure he shut and locked the doors since he had failed to do so twice previously. When I brought this to his attention again he got angry and said he would leave a bad review. He thought I was scolding him like a child and that was definitely not my intention. I think all our guests would agree to wanting to have a safe and secure place to stay. I am truly sorry that things ended this way with this guest.

A Great place to stay, far from the madding crowd!

  • 5 of 5
We rented condo#1. Everything was just as described. Spacious, clean and inviting. All we needed to do is bring food to cook, the kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil you could think of, even a cooler to use for fishing! We loved that we could bring the dogs. They loved it too. I spoke with Kim to make the booking. She is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about Matagorda. The amenities at the Dunes were great, my kids loved the pool, very clean, cool and well maintained. We really enjoyed the deck. Even at this time of year the sea breeze made it very comfortable to sit out of an evening and watch the fish jumping in the lagoon. Soooo relaxing. We will be back. maybe rent both of them next time and bring friends. Thanks Kim we really had a great time!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Condo #1 and we loved it. Kim the lady that helped us book it was very nice and very helpful. The condo was clean and offered everything that we needed for our week long stay. The beds were very comfortable. The view from the balcony was beatiful and the location was perfect. This condo is perfect for families as it's just a few minutes walk to the beach and the pool was very nice and well maintained. Even better we were allowed to bring our pet which not many other condos offered. We'll be coming back to stay here again for sure.

Serene Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The owner provided valuable information prior to our arrival, from where to pick up provisions to where to find the best food. The owner also responded to all inquiries quickly and made communications friendly and thorough.
I can't speak for other times of the year, but during our mid-April visit, the complex and surroundings were very quiet and peaceful. We had no competition for the pool and had the beach mostly to ourselves as well.
There were just two of us and we chose the upstairs loft for our sleeping quarters, where the sky light allowed us to enjoy the lightening storm during the night. Our other favorite feature of the condo was the deck; it being April we appreciated the sun shining on us and the deck is perfectly situated to provide as much of that as possible. Also, from the deck, you are facing the dunes and can view the pool and the lagoon.
The Watertown restaurant served the prettiest and plumpest raw oysters I've ever experienced. And, our mouths are still watering when we think of the stuffed flounder we had there.
We found this Matagorda Dunes condo to be a great place for our enjoyment of beach walks, quiet, and good food.

short trip to the beach

  • 4 of 5
We booked last minute and had a great stay. The condo was clean and well organized when we arrived. The beach is pretty close - about a 5-10min walk depending on how much beach gear you are carrying.
It was our first time to Matagorda beach - and we were really impressed.
The spoke with the owner before arriving and they were very nice. We were travelling with a baby and the owners made sure to have a pack-play and clean bedding available when we arrived.
Our only slight negative is that we couldn't find an ice machine on the premises.

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5
This ended up being the perfect spring break destination for our small family. The beaches were clean and there were no spring break crowds. The condo is only minutes walk from the dunes. The property itself was clean, well-equipped, and quiet. There was plenty of privacy for our family of four. We found the owners to be delightful. There is a property manager of sorts at the pool who is a bit cranky, and we were disappointed when we first arrived and found the pool to be closed for repairs. After a day or so, the pool was reopened. If you enjoy fishing or birding, this is a perfect retreat.
