  • Exceptionally Nice Piece of Paradise

    "My family and I enjoyed two incredible weeks in this exceptionally nice piece of paradise! The pictures only partially portray just how nice and spacious this house truly is. The pool is fantastic, as is the outdoor kitchen/bar! The house is well appointed with everything you need for a great experience! The views of the canals and bay are stunning both during the day and at night! I would highly recommend this beach getaway to anyone! It truly is Paradise!"

  • Great Time Fishing with Family

    "This was our first time renting a home on a canal. It was great! Underwater green lights in the canal you could see fish all night. I brought my boat and moored it at the house at night. Fished West Bay in the morning and afternoon. Fish the canals at night. House was great. We enjoyed the stay. I will be doing it again in the future."

  • So clean it even impressed my Polish mother!

    "My parents (who are 80+ years old), my husband, our dog and I recently stayed at this property to celebrate our son's White Coat Ceremony at UTMB. In addition, we had other family members stay around the corner at the Sugar Shack and its downstairs unit which are other properties managed by Ron and Tony. Between the three properties, we had 12 family members and two dogs in our group. On check-in, Ron told us about all the great places on the island that are popular with the locals. We hit many of his suggested places and felt like we had a true insider experience. The location is perfect. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and two blocks from the Sea Wall, on a relatively quiet street. The cottage is immaculate and incredibly well-stocked. My mother (the clean queen) kept going on and on about how clean the place is, especially because it is a dog-friendly property. Our original idea was to rent hotel rooms at the Galvez. Renting the cottage (and the other two properties) ended up being less expensive and so much of a better experience. There are three wonderful areas to congregate in the cottage--around the dining room table (which seats 6), on the sofa/chair/bench by the TV, and on the front deck (which gets a fantastic ocean breeze and has a view of the Gulf). We so appreciated all of these areas in which different configurations of family members could comfortably relax and converse. Again, there are so many thoughtful details from the decor to the wine fridge in the kitchen (a favorite of my mother's). My only concern was the stairs up to the cottage. I was really worried about my elderly parents not being able to navigate the stairs. They related that it was not an issue--there are two very sturdy railings and they could easily hold on to both railings while ascending and descending the stairs. In addition to family time, the location is perfect for all sorts of activities. We ran on the Sea Wall, biked to the Bolivar Ferry, took the dogs for walks on the beach, walked to Shy Cats (a restaurant with amazing French toast)... It was great that so many different groups could do so many different things without having to worry about transportation. We often stay at VBRO properties. I agree with a previous reviewer that this is one of the best places we have stayed for its location, price, amenities and space. We can't wait to go back!"
