Guestbook comments from the owner

By Aaron (Lufkin, TX)

Our stay was terrific! The house is big and everything was better than expected. Great views, direct access to the bay and a lighted dock loaded with fish. Russ and Tracy were very helpful and made us feel welcome. We loved the house and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fishing getaway or just a relaxing weekend!

Very peaceful place. Kids loved the playscape and yard to play in. The owner was awesome at answering questions and helping us enjoy every minute. Many fish to catch which was a blast. Neighbors are very friendly also! Can't ask for a better family vacay! We will be back.

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the conversations with the owner and one of the neighbors, to the state of the house itself, it was an all-around great experience. We bought food at Walmart in Port Lavaca to cook throughout the weekend, as there are no nearby restaurants or stores, but it didn't take away from our experience. We would definitely stay here again.

Anniversary weekend getaway...

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! We couldn't believe how awesome this home was..the perfect place to spend the weekend or any day of the week. The view from the living room windows was the best!! Waking up in the mornings and drinking coffee from the balcony/deck was so husband loved being able to fish from the backyard and at night too because there is light on the private dock. Everything we needed was stocked even a potato peeler!! Will recommend this home to friends that want that wonderful getaway vacation..christina

Wonderful house in a quiet community

We loved this house in Port Alto- it comfortably slept our larger group, the kitchen was well stocked, and most importantly, the view was stunning! A real gem. Russ, the owner, was great. Would definitely stay again!
