Why Bobbie Sale chose Matagorda

It's all about the beach! The beach at Matagorda is totally fantastic; big, wide and sandy. Only minutes from 'Beach Daze' and you are there. If you want you can also drive onto the beach which runs uninterrupted for 24 miles!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! 'Beach Daze' is just a few hundred feet from the beach and thus has unique access, both day and night, to one of the best undiscovered beaches in Texas. All this and its only 2 hours from Houston!

A great little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our stay with our three kids (ages 1, 2, and 5)! Everything was so clean, with every possible need provided by the owners, Bobbie and Matt. We appreciated all the cooking equipment, the copious towels, and especially the kid supplies. We used the booster seat, and our kids LOVED the basket of toys (to be honest, I think that was their favorite part, LOL)! We also REALLY appreciated the first aid kit supplies when our 5-year-old got eaten up by mosquitoes and we needed the itch-relief cream. Regarding the mosquitoes: that's the only part of Matagorda that we did not like, and that's not the fault of the house owners; it's just the nature of the landscape and climate there. Bobbie thoughtfully warned us beforehand and even provided bug spray at the beach house, which we used. Even with those precautions, the pesky insects still got to us a few times. For that reason, I would recommend that any guests with small children buy a beach car pass and drive onto the beach instead of hiking across the dunes. (My husband and I could pick up our toddlers and sprint down the path to avoid the mosquitoes, but our 5-year-old panicked and stood still, and that's when they got her.) Driving onto the beach avoids all that because there aren't any mosquitoes on the beach itself. The beach was beautifully quiet (basically deserted) and restful. We really enjoyed our time here!

Nice little house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 wonderful days at this house. It's an easy walk across the dunes to the beach. The kitchen is well equipped with just about everything you need, the outdoor shower is great for rinsing the sand. Having a washer and dryer is huge perk, coming home with out dirty sandy clothes is the best.

This property is attractive and well-maintained. We love it.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to stay at Beach Daze, and we still love it. It's small enough to feel cozy and big enough not to feel cramped. The deck is a great place to drink a cup of coffee in the morning, or sit and read or just enjoy the ocean in the evening. I like that there is a washer and dryer, because, always at some point, we need to wash. Proximity to the beach is great. We sleep well in the bed. But, I think my favorite part of this cottage is the kitchen - so full of light and bright and cheerful and spacious. I love cooking in it, better than cooking at home. It's well-stocked, too. We almost always find what we need, and, if not, we buy it, but try to leave something behind for the next tenants. We've just had a wonderful time both years that we stayed here.

not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

Let me start with something positive - there were deer in the back yard and they were beautiful. BUT........If you were a fisherman this is your place but you couldn't even see the beach and barely the water. Couldn't get to the beach due to overgrown vegetation, stickers and cactus plus heard there are snakes. Beach was far away like 1/2 a mile. We tried to drive on beach but sand too soft and didn't want to get stuck so we never even saw the beach. It was over priced for the location and size. We stayed in another beach house same vacation that was right on the water/beach and was bigger, newer and beautiful for much less. (different location on gulf) Beds were uncomfortable. We were going to leave early and stay in a hotel but had already paid so we stuck it out (4 nights) - but on a good note we did get the deposit back and the owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: We thank you for your review. However reading through the numerous comments you make has us wondering if you are actually reviewing Beach Daze or another beach house entirely….Our beach house is the one that is 200 feet from the dunes and 700 feet (like an 8th of a mile for reference) from actually getting your feet wet. We are quite sure of these measurements as it’s been in this location for around 40 years…..Our beach house is the one where you can clearly see (and hear) the water and surf from both the deck and indeed, from several of the inside windows….Our beach house is the one that has around 90, 5-star reviews, most of which refer to its excellent location relative to the beach….Our beach house is the one with the cleared and open beach path access used by many hundreds of visitors each year to get to the beach….and finally our house is one of the best value beach houses along the Gulf Coast. This is by design such that it is affordable for families, couples, weekenders and yes, fisherman. So whichever beach house you meant to review, it most certainly wasn’t ours.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome weekend at Beach Daze. It was the perfect size for us (2 adults/2 kids) and within walking distance to the beach. It had all the touches of home and our kiddos were sad we had to leave!

Wonderful little house with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house a few times and it never dissapoints. Bobbie is super easy to work with and if you have any problems they are addressed quickly and courteously. The house is super comfortable, clean, and really close to beach access. We really love it!
