  • Mary R. Lummi Island, WA

    "Just returned from a wonderful week long stay at this large very comfortable home. Our group of six over 60 adults (two couples and two singles) chose this house because of it's proximity to the beach, the size of the living space and kitchen. We had six other friends that were staying in condos near by and we needed a space where all 12 of us could gather for meals, and socializing as part of an annual reunion of a group of long time friends that are now living all over the country. This house was just perfect for our needs. The kitchen was very well equipped for preparing our meals, plenty of dishes and silverware, and we lacked nothing in the way of pots, pans, serving bowls, etc. The beds were all very comfortable (even one of the downstairs double bed / with twin bunk above passed the over 60 princess sleep test) We rented bicycles for the week and rode easily to the Birding Center, The Turtle Rescue center, the Jetty, and all places in between. We enjoyed the closeness of the beach access (just across the street) and watched the incredible sunrises from the beach every morning we were there. Our friends were staying in condos on the bay side just a five minute walk from our house so we were able to walk over there for some sunset viewing over Laguna Madre as well. The owner Amy was very easy to deal with, answered e-mail inquiries promptly, and her local property manager Salvador was also very easy to work with. We definitely would like to come back again and I have already recommended this property to a couple of friends."

  • The House became a Home

    "We drove from California to visit my sister and her 15 grandchildren. My son's family of 4 flew in from So. Carolina. This house turned into our home for three days. From the very beginning of our visit the kids were all over the Foosball game and having their way with the card table and poker chips. As it was December, the pool did not get used but looked very inviting. The BBQ offered the perfect place for the huge cooking of the Fajitas for the 25 or so mouths to feed. Everything was as if it was set up just for us. Plenty of plates, glasses, cooking utensils, and even some condiments in the Fridge. Next time we are in SATX we will be staying here. Keep up the great work!"

  • beautiful place

    "The condo was great. The view of the ocean was great. The WiFi was slow but it worked for what we needed it for. There were lots of places to shop and attractions to see."

  • Excellent Rental

    "This vacation rental is fabulous! It was very clean with kitchen pots/pans, plates, coffee cups w/coffee, glassware, sheets, linens, and pillows provided. Every thing mentioned in the description is exactly how it is. There is one screened in porch so you do not have to deal with bugs. You can see the lake from the porch which is not far away. A grill was provided on the unscreened porch which is also very large. There were 10 people that stayed with plenty of room for everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again and would recommend if you are looking for a very clean 5-star location. The owners, Bill and Sandy are great to work with making sure you have everything you need for a great stay."

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.
