"The property manager and owner were great to work with. The house was excellent for our needs and had the most fully stocked kitchen anyone could ask for. The easy access to the beach was great for the kids and the adults. The bikes were used daily, along with the wagon to haul stuff back and forth to the beach. After a full day at the beach the backyard pool was a relaxing place to rest and visit with the family. All the rooms had plenty of space and the king beds were very comfortable. The extra refrigerator downstairs was great for keeping drinks for everyone. Our family fully enjoyed out stay and are already planning our trip for next year. We have stayed in many places, but this house exceeds all others. Looking forward to staying here again."

"What a great week with family! We had stayed at Casa Familiar several years ago and were so pleased with
the accommodations but had outgrown one house and decided to stay elsewhere...what a mistake!
Needless to say we are now renting both properties and love the beautifully appointed updates exquisitely done! I really love the fact each bedroom has its own bathroom and the boardwalk that takes us directly to the beach.
When we're not at the beach, we can enjoy the patio and pool as well as the lulling Gulf breeze. We will definitely go back."

Wow - great vacation place that I would highly recommend
"We took our son and his family here for a beach vacation before school started. We do family vacations every year so have a lot of experience renting vacation houses. Usually we have good experiences and this one was exceptional. It was exactly what we wanted. It is right on the beach, has a small pool for the grandkids that is on a covered patio and had a constant breeze. Even though the daytime temperatures were typical south Texas hot, you could be on the patio and comfortable while the kids swam in the pool or went to the beach. It even has an outside shower to get the sand and salt off when you get back from the beach. The view from the top deck is excellent and a great place to spend the evening talking and socializing or just watching and listening to the water. Inside, the house was very quiet so no street noise or beach noise filtered in when it was closed up and you wanted to get to sleep. The rooms were plenty large enough with bathrooms for every bedroom. The floors were all tile so you didn't worry about getting them wet coming in from the beach or pool. And the decorations in the house were cheerful and pleasant. I also want to mention that working with Kely to get it booked and the contract completed was a very good experience. She was very responsive and friendly getting us set up."

"We recently stayed at the Oceanside Villa and had an amazing time. There were 8 adults and 3 children in our party. This beach villa has it all! Fully stocked kitchen with cookware and dishes. Plenty of room for everyone! Games and pool table and a wii. Wifi and cable for a rainy day. The best part was the private pool and jacuzzi! We spent most of our time at the pool and took advantage of the grill outside. The beach was literally a few feet away! We enjoyed that as well. I was so happy to not have to come home and wash a boatload of laundry because the owners supplied a washer and dryer and laundry soap. The property manager was Avaliable to us anytime we had questions. She was great! One thing I do recommend though, bring pillows or extra pillow cases. The house had extra pillows but not extra pillow cases and my husband and I are used to sleeping with two pillows."
