Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 4: Twin Bed
Naturally settled in the shade of multiple tall trees, this charming ranch-style home caters those who love ample amounts of space in their living area and who love to be in the company of unique and beautiful tropical birds.
Boasting 3,000 square feet of open area to relax in, a massive shaded backyard and a peaceful covered patio area, this is the perfect place to rest your head after a long day at the beach, exploring the rich history of Brownsville or taking in the sights of the surrounding area.
Wake up to enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or fresh juice on the comfortably furnished and covered patio area while listening to the various birds singing in harmony with each other. You can marvel at close-up encounters with Green Jays, Great Kiskadee Flycatchers, and comical Chachalaca bird families!
After you return home for the evening, the chef of the group will lavish in the fully-equipped kitchen area while whipping up their favorite recipes. You'll enjoy cooking and conversing with your guests in the open-style kitchen and dining room area.
Unwind and lounge on one of the comfy furnishings that surround the home while watching TV or finishing that book you've been reading. There are also puzzles and games in the family room cabinets that ensure fun for the whole family.
When it’s time for bed, you’ll find comfortable accommodations in all 4 bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a king bed, the second and third bedrooms have 2 twin-sized beds, and the fourth bedroom has 1 twin bed.
From this spacious 3,000-sq-foot home, you will have easy access to all that the lower Rio Grande Valley has to offer. Explore historic downtown Brownsville, and learn the rich heritage of this city at the museums and historic sites that dot the area. Bring a cooler, sun umbrella, and lounge chair to spend your days beachcombing, boogie boarding, fishing, or splashing around the public Gulf beaches, only a few miles away!
Visit a stretch of the Padre Island National Seashore, home to an active rescue operation of the endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtle, and meander the boardwalks of the World Birding Center. More nature adventures await at dozens of preserves, such as the world-class Resaca de la Palma State Park and World Birding Center, where you can rent bikes, hike, or even have a ‘Yoga in the Park’ experience among beautiful and unusual bird species whose farthest northern reach is the lower Rio Grande Valley.
This special area of Texas is home to endangered thornscrub habitat that shelters rarely seen jaguarundi, a relative of the ocelot. Don't miss the highly-regarded Gladys Porter Zoo, located in Brownsville, and the World Butterfly Center.
If you stayed a week, you could spend each day at a different refuge, preserve, or sanctuary. Ebony Haven is only 2 miles from Oliveira Park, where there is a daily display of roosting red-crowned parrots at dusk.
‘La Hacienda at Ebony Haven’ is close to everything, but a world away!
