I am in the commercial real estate business in Austin and am an avid saltwater angler. This is the best bayfishing in the State of Texas. As much as I love the fishing, I savor the sunrises and enjoying an adult beverage in the evenings on the front porch or end of my pier at my bayhouse as much.

Spence Collins purchased this house in 2005

This is the best bay fishing spot in Texas and close to the Padre Island National Seashore, where the beaches are unfettered with development.

The beautiful sunrises; fishing off my 330 foot pier; the peace and tranquility; close to retail support services, the beach, and restaurants.

Nice, quiet, quaint get away

Found at the end of the trail, this little cottage is a great get away spot. Located far enough away from it all to be stone quiet both night and day but close enough to get to anywhere you want to head off to. The house sports two bedrooms and two full baths. Nice living area with a large ceiling fan and HD TV. Large cooking and dining area with everything you need to cook a nice meal.

Very nice - we will be back.

Great for our family of fishermen

Great property. Very spacious. Lots of wildlife to observe from every window, porches, or piers on the property. Everything needed for an extended stay is all there for you. Only reason to give it 4 stars is that when we made our reservation, no where did it state that the rental was charged on a per person basis. Our submission had actually been approved, then had to be changed because of a "computer glitch." We had already hyped up our boys about the home and they were devastated when we told them we were not going to stay due to the cost. I think the cost of everything should be more clear on the websites listing this property so there are no hidden surprises. Otherwise, this was a great location and property for my family. The owner was also extremely kind during our stay and made us feel very comfortable to be at his property.

Owner's Response: I have worked with VRBO.com and Homeaway.com to correct the per person issue and it is functioning correctly now.

I am glad to be of assistance to all of my customers at any time during their stay and want to immediately know if there are any issues.

Property was as described, actually much larger than what I expected. Neighbors kept to themselves and dogs were not a bother as some reviews suggested. I would definitely stay again and will likely bring the family out next time. Owner Spence was accommodating to our party and professional. Fishing spots all around.

SWIM MEET and FAMILY STAY

We stayed at this great place, while we were attending the TAAF swim meet.

The views are spectacular, along with having access to the bay and a canal for your boat. We watched countless wild life and wind surfers, which were amazing. Fresh water to the canal dock is great for cleaning and washing down the boat. You can catch all the fresh bait you want with a throw net - grandkids can attest to that. And the marina is so close if you want to purchase bait. Their launch was free with a purchase. Great deal.

The kitchen was fully equipped for storing, cooking and serving.

This area of the Laguna Madre Bay is highly regarded for kite-boarding and windsurfing. Also, adjacent to the house is a wetlands area that offers terrific birding. You will view a large variety of coastal birds here.
