Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. We had a wonderful week enjoying the amazing pool and spa, cooking out, watching movies in the media room and playing some golf. It was a great way to enjoy ourselves and family over the 4th of July. We look forward to staying again! Take care and much love.

Beautiful Home! Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect get-away (aside from the heat of July, of course!). The home is beautiful and completely stocked. I was amazed at how well prepared the home was- nice shampoos/conditioners/body washes in each shower. Paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, plates, etc. -Not to mention crock pot, blender, coffee maker, and anything you'd need for a fully functioning kitchen. We did run into a minor issue with a cord getting overheated in the theater room, but it was replaced immediately the next morning, fantastic and immediate service. The house did not have cheap furnishings like I was expecting for a rental, the furniture and fixtures were beautiful and it really seems like a family's home.

The other reviews complaining about the low lake levels wasn't an issue anymore because of all of the Texas flooding this year. Also, the black lab and other large dog from the neighbor's house did drop by- but they are very sweet and loving dogs. They got along wonderfully with my 3 year old and my 5 year old nephew. I would highly recommend! Oh, but be prepared that a grocery store is about a 15-20min drive away. But the BBQ place close to the house (it's famous, but I am forgetting the name) completely made up for that- it was so delicious.

All in all, it is perfect for a relaxing and secluded family vacation. It isn't the place if you're looking for a wild nightlife. The marina was about 20 minutes or so away and we rented a boat for an afternoon very easily. We loved this home! (But if you're not accustomed to the heat of Texas, July is VERY hot and the outdoor space wasn't used as much as I would have wanted to)

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this wonderful property. We had 11 guys and were all very comfortable. The only reason I gave four (4) stars instead of five (5) stars was due to the neighboring house being so close. There is another property being built on the other side practically in the driveway of the rental. From the description we thought we were on a 6/ac. property that was secluded. Other than the close proximity up by the house, the property is as described. It was extremely easy to check in and out. Hassle free stay and experience.

Beautiful home!! Our family enjoyed our stay there very much. The pool is great as is the access to the lake. There are a few neighbors, but it is a very private atmosphere. When we first arrived, the thermostat was set a little warm and with one phone call to Nate that was fixed very quickly. Everything you need is there....all you need to bring is your clothes and food. It was quite hot while we were there, so during the heat of the day we were in the movie room watching movies. While in the pool in the late afternoon one day, a neighbor's dog visited. The kids enjoyed him, until the neighbor came and got him. He was no problem, only an added attraction. The kitchen is to die for and with the two dishwashers we became quite spoiled. The beds are so comfortable too. Our family is still talking about all the fun we had. It is such a blessing to have our entire family under one roof and this home was very conducive to our needs and desires. We definitely recommend this home for a vacation get away.

Overall great stay and Home

  • 5 of 5

Place was awesome. Media room was a nice touch! Once we got the music turned on outside we pretty much stayed out there for the majority of the time! Putting green was awesome as well.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (10 total) chose this location for our small, school reunion we have every couple of years. The house is amazing and due to all the rain earlier in the year, we were lucky enough to actually have a lake in the back. The location is quite out of the way from a Walmart or regular grocery (thank you GPS!), so prepare before hand or just make a 30 minute trip one way. I think we were very pleased with the comfortability this home provides: the bedding, furnishings, the swimming pool, luxurious showers, and the spaciousness of the kitchen (with 2 fridge/freezers!). There's even an impressive selection of board games, if you get tired of the pool, putting green, or playing horse shoes.

The only things that perhaps alarmed us (at first) was upon arrival, there is an abandoned, derelict house right next to the main house that was not depicted or mentioned in any of the descriptions/pictures. Like I said, it was alarming at first, but then became a point of intrigue and curiosity. Lastly, this property is not in complete isolation. The neighbors are situated VERY closely, which I'm sure there were reasons when building but just find it odd since the property is so large (or whoever built last). By no means did we ever have a problem with the neighbors (or their sweet dogs) or the surprising historical house right next door, but I think it's worth mentioning. The property and home is truly beautiful, and we had a great time!

The house is as beautiful as the pictures but is only prepared for renters on the inside. Like many other reviews we read, there was a problem with the pool. Green as could be and fixed after 24 hours. Nate took care of it with small agreeable refund but I would suggest you make sure that you ask for everything to work before you get there. Wasps restricted us from dock usage as well as campers at the bottom of the property on both sides. surely if we called Nate it might have ben taken care of. By the time we realized on Friday, we did not want the intrusion. My suggestion is you require him to walk the property before you get there rather than you letting him know what is in need of fixing when you get there- renting a boat is way to difficult and to far. yes we had the dogs visit us but it was not a bother. A/C is hard to figure out. Rooms are awesome.
