Quiet/dated/needs work-- What you see is what you get
Overall, it was ok. Short drive to the beach. It is certainly a what you see is what you get. We had small children so we could appreciate that we didn't have to be overly concerned with keeping things extremely tidy. There were cobwebs noted in every room, the furniture is very dated. The stairs were pretty steep so if you are a high fall risk its not for you. For a cheap stay and the location- it was nice and quiet unlike the party beaches at Port A- we may consider staying again. We did pay for a 2bd/2bath and were messaged right after check in that the owner just learned that the upstairs shower was leaking and for us not to use. I believe I read this in an older review- I would have to look again to be certain. Anyhoo- no refund of any kind was offered. We were just told not to use it. If you aren't looking for anything fancy and just a place to hold your belongings- this is for you.
Few upsides-- many downsides
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
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
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!
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.
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.
Amazing, clean, awesome condo to rent
My friends and I were so impressed with this condo. It was very clean and neat. The porch had a great view of the pool and lagoon. Having a private entrance was perfect because it kept traffic out. Just a short drive to the beach. Everything was just perfect. We will most definitely rent again
