Laid back, good space for a lot of people

  • 3 of 5

The backyard was so amazing for our family. We built fires and sat by the lake, hung out on the porch and fished. The kids loved the playground. We spent most of our time outdoors.

The indoors - The pantry room was nice to bring all of our stuff in so we didn’t have to store food or the stuff we brought to cook with in the kitchen area. The kitchen decorations on one of the counters and the back of the counters were dusty and grimy. There was too much personal food (from owners or past guests?) still in the cabinets. The bedrooms worked great for all of our different family members. The closets and drawers with personal stuff also seemed odd. It made it awkward to work our stuff around that. We struggled with the upstairs bathroom toilet and water from the tub that leaked into the master downstairs. One of the bathrooms downstairs had hair in the tub and the toilet was dirty when we got there. That tub also filled up with dirty water when the washing machine drained. The shower head in the master bath shot water everywhere. We had to tie a rag around it to keep the water inside the shower curtain. The living areas were nice but we didn’t feel comfortable in them b/c it felt awkward to sit on the furniture covered with sheets as requested by the owners. All of that stuff wasn’t terrible, just different from any house we’ve rented before.

Frank was my contact and he was very responsive and helpful.

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home in between Dallas and Houston that would sleep 10 people - this was a perfect solution. We had plenty of room and the home was very nice. It did not have a boat so you would need to bring your own. But it had a dock to fish off of.

Great Views!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful lake views. Our grandchildren played on the swing set all the time, it was awesome to have. The kitchen was amply supplied. We had some small issues and Frank called us to work with us immediately.

THE PERFECT PLACE !

  • 5 of 5

For Christmas, our family enjoyed our stay at this 6 bedrooms & 4 bathroom home

on Lake Palestine from Dec.24 to 26th. There were plenty of towels & bed linens not to mention the good space. Although it rained every day, we managed to have a good time with plenty of food we cooked in the kitchen. A few managed to do a little fishing between light rain falls. The Christmas tree was so beautiful along with the other Christmas decoration inside and out. We watched some NBA games on the TV Christmas Day. This is the perfect place to be with a small number of family members/friends.

I can't wait to have a summer or spring time stay. It was a bit expensive but worth it. Two or three evenings Saturday on the deck in the rain. We had a blessed time. It is a beautiful place. The ladybugs felt the same way.

Thank you, Frank, for being so helpful.
