  • Family Vacation

    "The accommodations and the surroundings were great. All was accurately described. The biggest draw back was getting us all there without getting lost and having no communication with the ones that were having problems. Once we were all there the reception problem didn't matter."

  • A perfect place to stay

    "Ok I am a person who is very picky where we stay and for a good price. The last thing I want is to be stuck in a place that is not nearly as nice as it seemed. I do rely on postings and trip advisor to make my selections. After seeing the positive feedback on this condo we went ahead and booked it. It certainly lived up to our expectations. We had zero complaints about the condo by anyone in our family including the little kids and the teens. The condo was great. Very clean, very nice, and living quarters were great. We took full advantage of the chairs and cooler for the beach. All the cooking items you needed were there. The condo has about 14 units so it is small enough to have peace and quiet. The pool was great and we used it every day. If you don't know the island setup the condo is maybe a tenth of a mile away from the main road where the big condos on the beach are at. Even those big condos you had to walk as they are not on the beach itself. So staying away from those your staying in much better and quiet location that required maybe a tenth of a mile further of walking and you are saving hundreds of dollars. I would recommend this condo to anyone who is going down there. I know the next time we go we will stay there. Regarding Eric the owner he did something most people would not do. After telling him we were going to book the condo we had to wait to make the payment because our debit card would exceed the daily limit. He offered to separate the payment in two days. However my phone died and during that time he had a person also wanting to book the condo after we talked. He informed me of this and said as a owner he would have to ensure he got a client who was going to pay. After all money talks. I did not see the email because my phone died. When I saw it it was maybe 6 hours later and he still did not let the condo go to the other person still giving us the chance to get the condo. That was very classy of him, and it shows in his condo as well. Thanks again Eric we had a great time. As for Padre we have been to every beach in Texas and this was the first time down here in many years. The beach hands down is better than any other beach in Texas. Water is clear and a nice green color. Saw many dolphins. Sand is great no seaweed or trash. Was a great vacation."

  • Great Family Fun

    "We had a wonderful experience at this rental. It was just like its description and was a great place for our whole family to be together. The house was perfect for our 6 adults and 2 children. Great location, close to town and easy access to hit the road for a trip to the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christie and a trip to Port A. The Rockport beach was great, too. Lots of choices for places to eat and a great kitchen when we wanted to cook. The owners have been great to work with and gave us lots of info on places to go and eat and they were right about every one we used. Would definitely recommend this house to a friend."

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.
