About Pat

I grew up water skiing and boating. My two boys have done the same thing. At heart, we are true lovers of the water and all it has to offer. We want everyone to be able to experience the same fun and excitement that we have. The memories will be with you forever.

Why Pat chose Lake McQueeney

If you love the water and love having fun with friends, I can promise you there is no place around that offers all the fun things that are at Bikinisland properties. You can ski, boat, tube and dance all night, all at one place. A huge party bus provides transportation to and from Schlitterbahn and river tubing for more fun. Play volley ball and tether ball, pass the football or Frisbee, Corn Hole and enjoy the in water trampoline. At night, sit around the fire cozy and romantic. Beer Pong table ready to play! Foosball table and Billiard table. Bring your boat or PWCs. We have our own launching ramp.

What makes this chalet unique

Two places to stay, one for up to 8 people and one up to 30 people. That way you don't have to pay too much to enjoy your stay.Water skiing, tubing, huge in-water trampoline, tether ball, Beer Pong, Corn Hole Toss, football, Frisbee, swimming, jumping in the water and a great view are fun things to enjoy that you cant get anywhere else at one place. As the saying goes "It just don't get no better"!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This past weekend, I let a group from Trinity College in San Antonio stay on Saturday night. They represented themselves to me as upstanding and responsible so I let them stay. Far far from that were they. The damage totaled almost $1,200.00 which Im going to collect as soon as I finish this Review. They are the perfect example of why most property owners do not allow college groups to rent their property. I wont again. My name is Pat Moore property owner.

It was a BLAST!

  • 5 of 5

All of the kids had a fantastic time! The property was beautiful and the house was just what we expected from the pictures. It was clean and spacious and fit our needs perfectly for our large group. The trampoline in the water was a huge hit. The owners are on property and were very easy to deal with. Will definitely recommend this property to others.

We had a wonderful stay! I Love that we were right on the water and we could launch our boat on sight. The kids had a great time on the water trampoline and being outdoors. The place was very roomy and clean. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family.

one night stay

  • 2 of 5

The house is nice. Would have been nicer if the air conditioner had of been on. We called the owner and let him know we were there and would arrive in the afternoon. As much as that rents for and calendar shows to be booked every night , you would think the air would be left on at all times. But we arrive and all of the doors were wide open. The owner did say if we had of come early in am then went and ran around it would have been cool by evening. The next morning the house was still hot 100 degrees . We came with a group of teenagers male and female from (ages 13-21) and the information stated 1 full bath and 2 half baths. What you get is a metal shed with two stools in it between the rental house and his personal house. So if you take a big group and don't care to shower and be hot its a great house. Suggestion check your rental house out through of realator and read all reviews

Owner's Response: Our review score is 5 star. Bikinisland has been rented going on ten years and has had thousands of people stay there. Are these made up claims because your credit card was declined? That can be really embarrassing. After several tries you only had enough money for one night instead of the three nights you reserved. You are always welcome back, but I will need payment in full up front.

An Annual Event

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Bikinisland and plan on making it an annual event! Like last year, we had such a good time.

We jumped off the balcony into the water, jumped on the trampoline, were pulled on the tube behind the boat, played pool and air hockey, floated, took a barge ride (we named it The Booze Cruise), ate and drank all weekend. We still didn’t try skiing but there’s always next year. ;)

Pat and his family were very nice and accommodating. Thanks for having us back and plan on seeing us next year!

Ski Mcqueeney (Waterski)
Car: necessary

Lake Mcqueeney is a part of the Gudalupe river just down stream from tubing and Schlitterbahn in Beautiful New Braunfels, Tx. only 10 minutes away. Lake Mcqueeney, 'The Waterskiing Capital of Texas' is a beautiful 400 acre lake and is surrounded with beautiful homes. Lake Breeze Ski Lodge is the place to go for your dining pleasure on the water. There's no place on earth like Lake Mcqueeney and Bikini Island. Either one of Bikinisland rentals comes with a few great competition ski boats along with great ski instructors if you choose to take lessons. If you know how already, just sign up for an hour or two of great skiing on a great lake.
