About the property

Two bedrooms, new sofa sleeper, one full bathroom - sleeps 4-6

Come and enjoy this clean and comfortable two bedroom home. Here you'll be close to beaches, shopping, restaurants, fishing, wind and kite surfing, N.A.S., Schlitterbahn amusement park , Texas State Aquarium, Texas A&M plus much more. Sisters and owners, Deb Gianetti and Denise Forbes welcome you! This beautiful home was renovated in 2008 by Deb Gianetti and friends. We couldn't keep this beautiful rental home running without the help of our property manager Carol and her cleaning crew. Sit back and relax on the wooden deck and enjoy the warm daily breezes and the fantastic view. There is a splendid view of the majestic Laguna Madre (The Mother Lagune). There is wonderful bird watching right in the back yard also! Warblers come out in the fall! Wind Swept Oaks are the trees of choice for these tropical and unique birds and we are fortunate enough to have a few right in the back yard. The front yard is sunny most of the time. There is a small boat launch at the end of the street into the laguna for smaller boats, canoes and kayaks. Located in Flour Bluff near the Gulf of Mexico, aquariums, botanical gardens, bird sanctuaries, beaches, kite boarding, golfing, Naval Air Station, USS Lexington, shopping and restaurants. PLEASE no smoking in the house.

Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I stayed here just this week, and the little house was perfect for what we needed. If you are looking for a place in a central location this is a great place. The house was clean and it had everything we needed. I'm looking forward to going back.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. This house was absolutely perfect for what we wanted/needed it for. There were four adults and three tiny dogs, that’s why we chose to stay in a house rather than a hotel, and it was awesome, very clean too. The only down side was the mosquitos, which were bad because of hurricane Harvey, and the stickers in the grass, which nobody can help having those things. This house is literally right next to the HEB, and gas stations and some fast food places, and the ride to the beach just took a few minutes. We will absolutely stay here again next year!!!!!
