Best Fishing is happening now!
average rating of 4.0 based on 7 reviews

Not good for the price of rental.

  • 1 of 5

The covered area under the house had lots of bird crap on the concrete. When I entered the house, 2 large cock roaches dead on the floor. Lots of ants on the sink counter top. No TV in the large family room. I had to go rent a TV. After removing one of the cable boxes from another room to get service, there was no signal. The tv delivery person tried to get connection several times but still no signal. No wifi available either. Carpet very dirty. Artificial palm tree in front room very dirty. Fishing pier was nice.

Comfortable house for a family or friends gathering

  • 3 of 5

The house is located on a beautiful piece of water in Bayou Vista. Has a wonderful porch with a gorgeous sunset. The home is comfortable and comes with a fully equipped kitchen. Has a nice boat dock to fish from and tie up the water sports equipment (the winch to raise the boat is broken). The three main rooms are reasonable size and come with queen sized beds.

There are numerous shortcomings in the house, which is in a major state of neglect and disrepair. It needs a lot of fixing and updating. The list of things not working, worn down or broken is too numerous. We ignored most of the shortcomings in order to enjoy our family get together and bought a couple of items to improve safety. The owner needs to put some capital and maintenance into the place to keep commanding the high prices. The owner also does not provide any consumables such as toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, hand soap, etc, and is the only house we have ever rented that does so.
