The 2nd bathroom has a stand up shower. We have DirecTV satellite, central air and heat, fresh linens, and towels provided. It features a 1 car garage, 1 covered boat lift, and a outside fish cleaning station for your fresh catch. There is a large upper deck area that is great for evenings outside enjoying cocktails, good conversation, or even the occasional fisherman's tale.

If you are in need to sleep a few more people, we also have an downstairs area available that will accommodate up to 6 people with 1 bathroom, refrigerator, toaster oven, & hot plate for an additional fee.

Exactly what was advertised and expected. Comfortable, Clean and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay and will likely book again another next year. Great deck, and boat lift which made it super convenient for entertainment purposes. Water pressure was a bit low but in all not really an issue. House was well furnished and very presentable to our clients which we were entertaining.

Better live than in pictures.

  • 4 of 5

Because the property is tucked away it seemed like it was just another day instead of the 4th of July. Quiet yet so close to all the things that make going to the beach great. I recommend this hideaway, you will not be disappointed.

Great place, we'll be back for sure!

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised and we had a great time, clean and enjoyable. Having our boat right at the house was a plus and the boat lift worked great and there was a water hose there to rinse the boat. The location is perfect for the whole family, you can hit the bait shop and be out in the bay in 5 min, Walmart is 5 min and the beach is 10 minutes. We can't wait to get back down to fish the Laguna Madre again soon! Thanks Courtney!
