Spacious, clean & so much fun 👍🙂

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome fun week we had. There were 8 of us and we had so much space. We weren't on top of each other at all. We enjoyed being on the lagoon for sure. Did a lot of fishing when we weren't at the beach. The walk to the beach was so easy & short also. We will definitely be looking to stay there again. The ONLY 2 things I wish were there were more mirrors in the bedrooms (we had 6 females trying to get ready at once lol) & that there were more bath towels in each bathroom. Other than that the place was clean, spacious & over all fantastic.

Rustic and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was a captains home and the hammocks in the back room could make you not want to go inside! Lol Great view on the peaceful lagoon. Better than just another condo to us. We will be back.

Charming Gulf Home

  • 5 of 5

Location is great, was very pleased with the house, it was very clean upon arrival and continued to have a wonderful clean fresh smell throughout the duration of our stay. Found everything we needed and the layout worked great, there are some beach toys located downstairs along with some beach chairs. The walk to the beach is short and was never a problem.

We caught crabs, redfish,trout, gafftop and plenty of piggy perch. Wish there was some underwater or some lights for fishing but we made due in the late evening with an underwater LED that we hooked up to a deep cycle battery. Neighbors were very pleasant as well as everyone in the area. For the guys wanting to fish, live shrimp under a cork is the key. Kids swam and kayaked off the back of the house without any problems. There is a rental place at the end of the canal called Ike's, you can walk up there and then kayak back to the house. We used the boat ramp every night to pull the kayaks out of the water and secure them under the house.

Tip: Tin Top is a restaurant that has became a tradition for us... It is located on County Rd #10 in the Bon Secor river basin. If you go past it you will dead end at the river, that is where all the fisheries are and a wonderful place to buy seafood you can take back to the house and cook. In case you are unaware... That is the key to a good vacation... Boil a pot of royal reds...or some crabs! Everyone tends to gather around and pick and eat! In Southern Louisiana we call that relaxing:-) can't say enough good things about this wonderful rental... Owner was wonderful!

The property was comfy, clean, roomy, and had a nice view. We appreciate it being pet friendly and found the neighborhood also pet friendly when walking our dog. The nearby grocery store was also a bonus.

Great location and very spacious

  • 4 of 5

Great house. Lots of room great view and nice dock. Rated 4/5 stars due to issues with lights working outside not allowing us to fish on dock at night.
