  • Relaxing Country Home

    "My family and I so enjoyed staying in this home. The home was prepared when we arrived and was very inviting. The host anticipated what we would need to make our visit comfortable. Everything was clean and fresh. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, utensils, pots and pans for preparing meals. The rural setting gave us a feeling of room, but yet there were neighbors on one side and across the street so we were not isolated. We enjoyed the wildlife nearby. In Fredericksburg we visited the National Museum of the Pacific War, dined and shopped on Main Street, swam at Lady Bird Municipal pool and climbed Enchanted Rock at the State Park nearby. We are a three generation famiy ranging in age from 11 to 71 so there was something for everyone. We would definitely return for a visit and would highly recommend it to anyone with similar taste."

  • GREAT Stay--Last Reviewer is Nuts

    "My friends and I just left this house after staying for Mardi Gras, and after seeing the last review, I felt compelled to write. I'm not sure what that reviewer was talking about. The house is nice, as is the pool. It is true, it is an older home, and it is not decked out with flat screen televisions or the latest IKEA furniture (thank goodness, btw). But it is charming, as is the neighborhood--and it was very reasonably priced!! (We had 8 people in total, and thought it was a huge value--especially during Mardi Gras). It has a very nice kitchen, which was perfect for us--we could eat in when we wanted to, and go out when it suited us. The location absolutely CAN NOT BE BEAT. You can see the Gulf from the deck--and it's on the same street as the beautiful Galvez. It's also right across from the Pleasure Pier--it would be perfect for families with kids. (In fact, several of us are planning to come back in July!!) We did have to call the owner as we had problems with the keybox (totally our fault--we forgot to bring the combination with us. The owner actually uses our address as the combo--but we didn't remember that!) She was charming too, and has lived in Galveston for decades. She's a spitfire--and she knows all the best restaurants in town, as well as a couple to avoid. We can only assume the last reviewer does not like people, the beach, or vacations in general--because we had a great time, and are definitely planning to come back!!"

  • Fun Weekend Getaway

    "I have stayed in this unit several times. The area is beautiful for a close to home weekend getaway, or extended stays. My friends and I love staying there to float the river and see concerts at Gruene Hall. The manager is very knowledgeable with the area and pricing. The price is reasonable and usually flexible for last minute stays."

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:

Houston

Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.

Austin

As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.

Dallas

The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
