  • Exceptional Stay!

    "This location has been my BEST VRBO experience! This is definintely a home away from home experience. The cleanliness was outstanding! It is obvious that Laura and Todd really do care about the visitors and want to make the stay in their cottage a "one of a kind" experience! The ambience was very relaxing......great views and I enjoyed watching the Hummmingbirds on the porch every morning. I look forward to coming back during the winter months to enjoy the antique gas fireplace."

  • What an amazing time we had!

    "We rented this house for the 4th of July holiday 2013. Everything was just as photographed: only better. The location in proximity to the beach is perfect! A short walk across the road to an virtually private beach. The house had everything we could have asked for: even kitchen supplies! Some of the features i loved: the deck has a fantastic view of the Gulf, the kitchen is laid out so nice and not cramped. The light in the house is just right! There was very little noise from the road in front of the house. The bedrooms were perfectly laid out and the right size for our family. We didn't use the downstairs bonus room, but it could have slept a few people... All in all this house was perfect for us. The laundry room was very large and allowed us to go home with clean clothers! We rent homes frequently and we would love to come here again. The owner was so very helpful and very responsive! You wont regret renting this home!"

  • The Perfect Getaway

    "We just got back from a two-week stay at this lake house. Everything about it was perfect! It is on the water, so you can walk down to the lake anytime you want to swim, fish, or boat. The house has its own private dock if you want to bring a boat or a jet ski. The large deck area is a great place to relax, grill, birdwatch, or watch the sun rise. The inside of the house has everything you need, has been maintained very well, and is quite comfortable. The owners are so welcoming and nice!! They were there to greet us when we arrived, showed us everything the house and property has to offer, and made sure we had everything we needed for great vacation. There are very few other houses nearby, so it is very quiet and private. It is also close enough to San Antonio that you can easily make grocery runs or anything else you might want to do in the city. Overall, it is a great house for the perfect getaway, whether it's just a couple of adults or a family with kids. We took our dogs along, and they had a blast out on the deck and swiming in the lake. You can't go wrong with this property!!"

  • Loved this property!

    "We stayed here last summer in July (2010) and plan on staying again this summer. Extremely clean and maintained. The pictures accurately reflect the property, which is beautiful. We barbecued and fished right off of the back deck. The swimming pool on the property is well maintained and specious. Property is close to the bridge leading to Padre so it was very easy going to and from the beach as well. Very quiet and peaceful at all times of the day and night. Highly recommend!"

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, 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.


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.


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.
