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.

This is our third year in...

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year in a row to rent Condos 1 and 2. We bring our children and grandchildren and a friend. We like the relaxed and safe feeling the gated area offers. We love sitting on the deck in the a.m. and p.m. and have coffee and look out over the pool. We feed the seagulls from the deck and watch the turtles below in the lagoon. Flocks of pelicans fly overhead several times a day. The beach is clean and natural, complete with shells for collecting. There is good fishing nearby.The condos have lots of room and comfortable furnishings and a full kitchen. We also use the grills that are furnished with each condo. There is lots of privacy from the other condos.We have found everything we could need in the condos and particularly like renting ajoining ones.

Few upsides-- many downsides

  • 2 of 5

We were disappointed; hoped for a nice place for a romantic weekend get-a-way. Found condo to be neglected and in needed of maintenance: toilet seat loose and missing an attachment; open uncovered outlet in the living room floor is a shock/electrocution hazard; refrigerator freezer reeked of fish (baking soda inside failed miserably to mask odor); cobwebs hung from every ceiling; every room had cracks and poor repairs in drywall; appliances were old and in need of repair/replacement. On the positive side, locale was beautiful; pool was great. Condo would work for fishermen who don't care about amenities. Because of rattlesnakes in nearby grasses, probably not a safe place for children to run about.

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this condo and location within minutes. Kim was very helpful and made sure her condo was clean and fully stocked with everything needed to enjoy some quality family time. If you are looking for a great family vacation away from the fast pace lifestyle so many of us live in today then this is the place for you. No chain hotels just beach homes and miles of beach. Excited for our next vqcation here. Truly a hidden gem

Fun, Beautiful, and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 teens and I absolutely loved Matagorda. Even in the middle of July we sometimes had the beach and pool to ourselves. We found the clear lagoon that is right below the decks delightful! The whole area is full of wildlife. There was a constant cool breeze that kept the heat and mosquitoes away. The condo was great! It was clean, comfy, and fully stocked. Fishing for blue crab just down the road was really fun. We loved it and will stay again!

Owner's Response: We try hard to make our condos a great place to vacation and we appreciate it when guests let us know they enjoy it. It is always nice when the weather co-operates and the rain fills our lagoon with water and the breeze blows. We feel that Matagorda is a magical place. Come back in October our favorite month when the days are cooler and the Gulf is still warm.

Condos 1 & 2

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property. We have stayed in one or the other condo three time now, in the summer and winter. The condos are well-appointed, roomy, and comfortable with great views all around. The beach, the jetty, and the river are all a minute or two away, and the town of Matagorda is less that ten. We will be back.

Amazingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for the first time from May 1st through the 3rd. It was absolutely amazing. The view was beautiful and everything we needed or wanted to do was close by. The condo was very clean and everything worked great. We tried out the pool which was also very clean. Everything was exactly like the pictures. The owners were very sweet and we're quick to respond with any questions. Very nice people. I will definitely Be returning very soon.
