Stunning Paradise in Texas!

  • 5 of 5

Min' Paradis is an amazing, relaxing, with beautiful views, and serene evenings home that lacks nothing but YOU! Chris and Gary were wonderful and attentive to our needs. The property is so gorgeous with all it's amazing details. We couldn't stop taking photos of all the scenery, fish, birds and wildlife. We are already planning a return trip, we just want to live there!!

If you want to enjoy life and disconnect from your daily grind, this place will feed your soul and reconnect you with the beauty of creation.

Thank you Chris and Gary, your home revived us for another bit.

Until next time,

Beth, Dorothy, Anna, and friends♥

Beautiful property and home.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. Everything was perfect. The home was very comfortable, the water was cool and refreshing. We spent most of our time swimming and we took the boat out on the water and did a little fishing. There are plenty of fish in the water. They provided us with everything we needed to make our Stay pleasant. I can't wait until I get to go back!

One of a kind!!

  • 5 of 5

This property and the owners, Chris and Gary are truly "one of a kind!" From the moment you step foot into this house and then out to the back deck, you are mesmerized by the tranquil beauty and charm they have created! Pictures do not do it justice.

The water is amazing and I particularly loved the american flag waving on the dam wall. My kids are16 and 21 and we all agreed it was the best place we have ever stayed! It lacked absolutely nothing!

Thank you Chris and Gary for sharing your home with us and making us feel so welcome! We will be back.

Lori, Colton, Maddie and Jessi. 💖

Wonderful tranquil spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the property. The house was perfect in every way. Beautifully decorated and unlike most rental properties it had everything you could ever need. The spot on Bluff Creek really is one of the most beautiful, peaceful areas I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

The outdoor decks were awesome and the ability to use grills/smokers was a treat. We also had a great fire one evening that was built for us on our arrival.

We spent countless hours on the dock and swim deck enjoying the quiet and the noise of the water going over the spillway.

Water was wonderful and clear and we managed to catch a few catfish when we were hanging out.

The visits from the dogs and cat were a welcome treat when they decided to stop in.

We are looking forward to coming back again to experience
