  • Nice Condo with even nicer owners!

    "The condo itself is located in a great spot on the property. Plus they are pet friendly, and who can beat that? We didn't take our dogs this time but will next time! The condo was clean enough, but very dusty! You notice this when you move furniture to plug in chargers. We found little things here and there that belonged to other visitors, like a toothbrush...stuff like that. Our absolute biggest complaint, was the master bed. The mattress was very loud and extremely uncomfortable. If you rent this condo you will really only have to bring food. There is shampoo, conditioner, body wash....literally everything you could ever need. PLUS, they have VERY nice beach towels for you to use."

  • THE NEW SOUTHERN COMFORT

    "Everything good in a lakehouse you could ask for. Pics don't do it justice. #1 Super parking! Room for cars AND trailers. #2 House is spacious with big kitchen/work area, dining, and living all together in open plan plus this opens to sun porch/additional sleeping area. #3 Easy cleanup tile floors, nice bathrooms, good AC. #4 SUPER water: Fab cove for beginner skiiers, tube riders, etc. + FAB covered boat dock with concrete floor (no splinters!), boat lift, jet skii parking, and great wildlife watching. Plus a misting system for those really hot days and stereo -- very fine! Mamas floating on the tubes and kids swimming, skiing, tubing. Too lazy to fish but we saw big ones! #5 Fenced yard for kids/pets. What more could you ask? Nothing we could think of!"

  • Great family time!!!

    "12 of us felt right at home in your lake home. It fit the needs of grandparents in their 70's, parents in their late 40's, and grandchildren of all ages. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, and sitting on the multiple deck areas was very relaxing. We spent most of the time fishing and everyone caught plenty of bass and catfish. We plan to visit you next Summer."

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.
