  • Perfect Base Camp

    "This place was exactly what we needed - a base camp for our motorcycle adventures with plenty of room for truck & trailer. We loved the history of the home and all the antiques. The beds were very comfortable and hard to leave. Janet was wonderful to help us out with suggestions and answering all our questions. Definitely a great place to stay."

  • Great Time!

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was a beautiful property. Sadly the weather wasn't great, so we spent more time inside that we had anticipated. However, this property was very nice, so the time inside wasn't bad at all. The decorations are very beachy and perfect for Port Aransas. The house was very clean, and it was in the perfect location; just a few hundred feet to the beach (very easy walk for anyone). We had 4 kids between the ages of 1 and 5, and it was a great place for them as well. We did have to call the property management company because the power breaker tripped. They were very nice and fixed it very quickly. Great Time!"

  • A wonderful family weekend at Lake Travis!

    "We recently spent a 3 day weekend hanging out at this great Lake Travis rental in the Point Venture development. The listing was very accurate regarding the location of the rental. It is about a 45 to 60 minute drive to downtown Austin. However, within a 20 to 30 minute drive there are any amenities and shopping you could need. The photos were right on the money and very representative of this great property. We used all the bedrooms, and our 4 year old grandsons loved the loft bedroom with the cowboy theme. All the beds were very comfortable. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. We ate a couple of family meals around the big dining room table and had plenty of room. On Friday night we made our way down the many many steps to the Gnarly Gar which is a restaurant located at the Point Venture marina. It was delicious and so nice to just stroll back to the condo and not have to get in the cars. We also rented a ski boat from the Riviera Marina on Saturday. It was about a 30 - 40 minute drive, but well worth it. They were very nice and we had a blast tubing on the lake with the kids. Big big thanks to Kevin. He was in contact before the rental, and I felt like if we needed anything we could have counted on him. The pool was well used by us and is literally a short stroll across a parking lot. Sparkling clean and huge! The playground was a drive around to the other side, but also a very nice distraction for the little ones. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks again Kevin."

  • Great location, great amenities, great communication

    "My friends and I were looking to upgrade from a town home to a home on our annual trips to Port A. The Sea Parrot worked really well for our needs. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment. There weren't any complaints about the beds and the place looked and felt very clean. The decks had good quality outdoor furniture. Barbara was good about getting back to me within 24 hours on any questions I had about our upcoming visit. The location is great - about 5 minutes away from groceries, bars or the ferry. We had one day of crappy weather, but the house was large enough that all 14 of us weren't stepping over each other as we weathered the storm and stayed entertained. Walking distance from the beach."

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.
