A last minute booking made easy, with a fixable issue

  • 4 of 5

I paid after hours and they delivered the key to me on the same night. There was some confusion, but management made it right.

Things you'll like: The house itself seems newer than the others around. There's a lot to like about it, including a good layout, cold AC, many TVs (including a large 70?" TV in the living room, and other nice things. We had 6 people staying here comfortably, thanks to the fold out beds that could be rolled into any space.

Things you might not like: You expectations staying here are reasonable, but higher than a hotel. You leave it the way you found it. I'm all for that, so not a problem for me. It could be a problem if not cleaning after yourself is an must on your vacationing checklist. Also, this house is VERY high up. Perhaps it is because of this that the house wobbles once and a while. I'm a fan of turbulence, so this didn't bother me. It's not as bad, but quite noticeable. Also, the railing is not stable. There is a sign to let you know not to touch it, but I also don't believe its going anywhere without excessive force.

Things I didn't like: So now the reason this isn't a 5 out of 5. The water is simply bad. South Texas water is notoriously bad already, but I believe this is a well water issue. If it's not, then there are pipe issues either way. Here's what I do know for sure: The water has a slight brown tint to it and it smells of iron and/or rust, which reminded me of the smell of blood. When showering, I had images of the film Carrie in my mind. The water also left the shower drain area stained. I avoided showering after the first one, and fortunately, my stay was brief. This issue may have dragged it down to a 3 (3.5 if I could do half stars), but the management helped me, so I will be checking out their other properties if I need a place in the future. If the water issue gets resolved, then this would be a great little place here!
