Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 2 nights and everyone loved it. Nice open floor plan with gorgeous views! Most of our time was spend outside fishing off the pier and hanging out on the patio. It was nice being able to watch everyone fish while hanging out on the deck or patio areas. Russ was very nice and helpful with any questions we had during our stay. Text and calls were responded to very promptly.

Home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

The owner Russ was so easy to talk too and was open to any questions I had. The house was packed full of games, towels, dishes and many more. All you need is your fishing gear and your private dock. The kids got distracted with the play scape many times. Bigger Cities about 10 miles away. Very secluded.

Sigh....didnt want to leave. Neighbors are super nice, the fishing was pretty good (flounder, reds, drum, trout). Great views of the sun in the morning, and the full moon at night. We loved it!

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.

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!
