  • College Reunion

    "A group of my college friends and our families have gathered for an annual reunion over the past 6-years. We stayed at CVL this past weekend and had an absolutely amazing stay. We have rented other properties in the past and none have lived up to our expectations but we had the exact opposite experience at CVL. The accommodations were perfect for our large group of young families. The separate cabins allowed for quiet space for families and napping kids, while the main lodge offered more than enough space for us all to gather for meals, games, and to watch football. The pool, hot tub, games, basketball court, fire pit, and trails provided endless entertainment for the kids and adults alike. The property was clean and stocked with all of the needs for entertaining and feeding a large group. Nita was very helpful in preparing for our stay and very attentive to our needs while we were there. I highly recommend CVL to anyone looking for the perfect central Texas getaway."

  • Great Retreat Space

    "We had a group of 14 that used the lake house for a retreat. It was perfect for what we needed. In addition to a beautiful and clean home with plenty of bedrooms and sleeping spaces, the front rooms were comfortable and easily reconfigured to a large group meeting like ours. The kitchen was nice and easy to utilize, and the porches and property provided excellent spaces to enjoy the lake view. The pictures doa good job of representing the property. In particular, the location was fantastic. The home sits in a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees and right on the lake; however, convenient shopping and dining are less than 5-10 minutes away, and downtown Fort Worth was only 20 minutes away. We had a reservation at a four star downtown restaurant and made it in 20 minutes at 5:30pm. Great location! Art, the property owner and manager, was thoughtful and helpful. He was very easy to work with and maintained a flexible schedule to always be available when needed. He stays in a small house located next to the rental property, but he is not underfoot at all--he respects your privacy for sure. All in all, this was a great experience, and I would highly recommend the property."

  • All the fun of camping, all the comforts of home

    "We have just returned from our long weekend at the Palm Beach cabin and we're already planning to return! We booked last minute and took our dog. Communication from Linda was fantastic, she was really helpful with the questions we had. We loved the cabin from the moment we arrived, it reminded us of camping trips (but without any of the hard work!), it was the perfect place to chill out. It's a short walk to the beach and has a great deck and garden to relax in - reading in the hammock under palm trees was a highlight. There was only two of us so we had plenty of space and privacy. It was very clean and comfortable, in fact the pictures do not do the interior justice, and a shower perfect for my husband's 6'4" height!"

Texas Travel Tips

Activities at Texas Beach Rentals

Texas's southeastern border runs along the Gulf of Mexico. It is one of the less populated areas of the state and a great vacation option. You can enjoy beautiful views that stretch out over the Gulf from Galveston beach house rentals or South Padre beach vacation rentals. There are many activities in the area including deep sea fishing, beachcombing and sailing. If you plan to visit the coastal regions, it is best to do so in the spring and early summer months when the weather is milder. It can be fun exploring the smaller coastal towns, and browsing antique shops and general stores for souvenirs.
