"We came to the Texas Court House for our annual family vacation. There were 18 in our party - 5 families, ages 6 to 73. The weather was very accommodating during our stay. The highlight for the fishermen in our group was the wonderful fishing off the pier. We must have caught about 60+ fish of all sizes. We caught drum, trout, flounder and blue crab. They were delicious to eat, and we had more than enough to take home with us.
The home was clean, roomy, and comfortable. There was something for everyone to do, and no one got in any one's way. The double kitchen was great because kids and adults ate different foods. The sectioned off rooms and bathrooms provided privacy and allowed some people to sleep early or get up late without any disturbances.
I got to see some beautiful sunrises each morning on the balcony looking over the bay. This is when I prayed, read my Bible and worshiped the Lord, who gave such wonders to us. I even saw a dolphin just a stone's throw away.
Our family is very "connected," so the wifi was truly appreciated. A number of our crew really enjoyed watching soccer in the large downstairs tv, even as some others watched Animal Planet and movies on the upstairs TV. The house was very cool, a nice contrast from the heat just outside the doors. But it was not so hot on the piers because of the breeze. It was also nice that there was a Super Walmart and Bear Bait Shop just twenty minutes away. We had to go there a few times for forgotten supplies and more bait.
All in all. It was an outstanding time, and, of all our years, the most fish we ever caught at a vacation rental home. I praise God for wonderful family time and thank the Raub family for allowing us to have such a fantastic stay."

"Although we had to weather out Tropical Depression Bill for 3 days of our stay, the house proved perfect for our family gathering. The wife and I, 4 down from Dallas and 2 down from New Jersey made the best of sour weather with card games, dominoes and some great home cooked meals. The canal was perfect for docking our boat after the weather cleared. We enjoyed water sports in the ski basin on Thursday and some decent fishing on the far side of the bay on Friday and Saturday. We will be back!"

"This late 70's couple fully enjoyed this very nice condo for an eight day respite from Missouri winter--it helped that SPI weather happened to be gorgeous during our entire stay. The beach is very close, pool and deck area are convenient and very nice. Everything is in good repair and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Kitchen is ample and well equipped. Because of protective coverings on beds and pillows, we suggest that guests bring their own mattress pad and pillows--our only complaint. SPI has many good eating spots--we particularly enjoyed the Sea Ranch."

"My family stayed at the house for the first week in August. We found the house amazingly clean and in excellent condition considering that this week was nearing the end of rental season and many houses show the wear by this time. The house is set up in a way that isolates the bedrooms from the living and kitchen rooms by hallways with doors which was nice for those who wanted a bit of quiet. The decks are great and we enjoyed sitting on them in the evenings.
Brent was wonderful to work with. He responded quickly to our questions. After we left, he found a camera we had left behind and he was so thoughtful about contacting us to see if it was ours, then mailed it to us. Pretty nice!
We definitely recommend the house."
