About the property

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.

Comfy home

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this is the 1st house ive ever rented as a vacation rental and it was awesome. The home was nice and cozy. More than enough accessories were left for us. I enjoyed my stay overall. Most importantly it was 10 mins from the beach i love. I would definitely be staying here again in the future

Great stay but would be better if it was fenced since we took our pups and the neighbors had about 5 dogs but cozy place and close to everything

Great Location, easy on the budget!

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time at this house! It is a good location from anything you would like to do! Restaurants, shopping, beach etc. Not even a bad drive to the major attractions downtown. We always try vrbo before we get a hotel and this one was within a good price range for my husband's per diem. With that being said if you are planning on cooking a lot you might want to bring some stuff from home. Kitchen had most the necessities but I was happy I brought some of my own stuff.

The owners have been very easy to talk to and were prompt in responses on any questions we had!

All in all if you are looking for a place that has a great location than this is a place that would be great!

Very nice, clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The house is older, but the interior is very clean, comfortable, and roomy. Everything you might need is there. Two nice sized bedrooms made it easy to move around, and there is plenty of room in the kitchen to fix meals. Nice hot water for showers. Our small dog liked the back yard where she could feel comfortable. Both Debbie and Carol were very pleasant to work with. There is a fair amount of traffic in front, but it is a main route to the H.E.B which is conveniently just a few short blocks away.
