Great property on the Laguna Madre
Susan the owner was very attentive to our arrival and provided nice instructions with directions, key access and she checked in on our family with both email and text to insure that we understood the house. The house is simple and clean, an old school Texas bay house and everything was functioning well. Updated heating and cooling with smart thermostats. We used the laundry in the garage. The green light for fishing on the pier works great and my kids had a grand time fishing at night. The house has a beautiful view of the bay and as we were December guests, we played games and relaxed in front of the big windows and enjoyed the view on the chilly days. The water is fairly deep right off the pier (boat channel) which helped fishing and the boat traffic is light as the home is closer to the edge of town (nearer to wildlife area). My kids walked to some of the shopping we found the neighborhood to be quiet and calm. Kayaking was great from the pier. We had a nice time relaxing and look forward to trying the property again in the summer.
Thank you for your nice review.
A wonderful house on the Laguna Madre
Year after year we keep returning to this wonderful house. Thank you for sharing!
great time every time
No AC & no response from owner
A group of friends and I recently stayed here and we wanted to like the house, but after a late afternoon arrival we sat down our bags and adjusted the AC before heading to the beach. When we got back later that night (well after the sun was down), we walked in to discover that the AC only blew cold air in the front part of the house. The "back" of the house, where all the bedrooms are located, never cooled below 80 degrees and the internal temperature quickly rose to the mid-80s with eight of us in the house and moving around.
We were very disappointed in the status of the AC and attempted to contact the owner via message on the HomeAway app, which was our previously established method of communication, and never heard back. Weekend temps on the island reached over 100 degrees, so it's a shame we paid a hefty cost for no AC.
We were very sorry to learn of your bad experience. We were out of the country when you tried to contact us but did contact the company who services the air conditioners. When we did not hear anything further we thought the problem had been addressed. However, we have laminated information and instruction pages in the house with the numbers of service providers in case of electrical, plumbing or air conditioning problems. These providers usually respond immediately to any requests for service by us or our renters.
Unfortunately, both air conditioning units decided to go out this summer, not too long after your stay, and we ended up replacing them with new units and handlers.
There should be no more air conditioning problems.
Fifth year. Enjoyed it again.
The home is very nice and the view of the bay is no joke. Will definitely stay here again.
