Great little house!
My husband, daughter and I stayed here just this week, and the little house was perfect for what we needed. If you are looking for a place in a central location this is a great place. The house was clean and it had everything we needed. I'm looking forward to going back.
Very nice! Clean and great location! The bay is 1/2 block away, Grocery store (HEB)1 block away, Walmart a couple blocks past HEB! 2 bait shops right around the corner if you are fishing. Big selection of restaurants close by too. Nice to have the whole family including the dog all in the same spot. We really enjoyed staying at D&D's retreat and already plan on doing it again. In my opinion this beat the heck out of a motel. Carol, the lady that cleans this place, does one heck of a job! It was spotless and smelled good upon our arrival. Our family is looking forward to returning!
Birthday at the WHATABURGER
The house was over all sweet, exceptionally clean and no bugs to be found. The property was off a busy street and perhaps after a second night could have grown a custom to the road noise. When we arrived there was the front door screen flapping in the breeze that really should be replaced for even if a partial fix the screen alone had a big patch in the middle of it that gave the place a bad appearance as well as several of the blinds in need of repair. The back yard could be cut to make the place more presentable as well.The property adjacent to the place left little to be desired not only for this property owner but to the whole neighborhood. I wasn't to at rest being next to them either..
Having the house clean and ready for our guests is our number one priority. I am glad to know it is exceptionally clean and bug free. I'm sorry about the busy street but I have no control over that or the neighbors and their yards.
The screen door has been repaired, as you know we allow pets (you brought 3 with you) and as lovable and endearing our pets are they are rough on a house and especially on screen doors. We and our guests, have never had any problems with safety in the home. New blinds have been purchased and are being replaced as time permits, as we have many back to back reservations, getting the house clean is our top priority.
Cozy home, exactly what we needed! I would definitely book again!!
Cute, Convenient, and Very Safe
D&D's Retreat is a very cute and comfy cottage, conveniently located to everything. It is literally across the street from the laguna which means that fishing, crabbing, and swimming are mere steps away. My dogs and I went there nearly every day. The owner, Debbie, is a terrific, extremely responsive and accommodating host. She's the kind of host every guest hopes to have. Additionally, there is a H-E-B Plus store walking distance away in the opposite direction. There are also many great restaurants close-by. Taqueria Jalisco was a very fast favorite. Their charro with beans soup is practically addictive.
The cottage is located in a very safe area. We felt completely safe going for walks late at night or early in the AM. The one pointer is that the cottage is at the corner of a busy intersection, particularly with the laguna on 1 side and H-E-B down the street so a lot of traffic goes by there. This means that you must really think about and plan your dog-walking schedule (early AM and late afternoon/evening after rush hour) and location (side streets and the laguna)...part of the reason we went to the laguna so much because there are no sidewalks and hardly any street lights. We had a good time and look forward to future vacations there.
Great location. House had a homey feel to it. Larger than expected
Loved the blue house. Within walking distance to an HEB and the bay. Location was great with a short drive to many beaches. Home had plenty of dishes, pans, and cups to fit our needs which was a concern as I wanted to cook most of our meals while on vacation. Nice large rooms. There were also alot of towels provided which was super helpful. Plenty of space for us two adults and 4 kids. The sofa bed was tricky. We never quite figured out how the two pieces went together but still able to use for the kids. Board game table and chairs in closet which we used each night for dominoes and uno. We were worried about the cable but soon realized Netflix was on the TV so we were good to go. A++.
Located in Flour Bluff just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, Padre Island National Seashore, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Mustang Island State Park, Whitecap Beach, Corpus Christi Bay, Bob Hall Pier, Texas State Aquarium, several bird sanctuaries, golfing, Naval Air Station, South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center, USS Lexington, world class bird watching, close to shopping, a Super HEB grocers, restaurants, cafes, and just about everything south Texas has to offer.
