Why Paul chose Palacios

Shrimp Boats where you can buy fresh shrimp, 110 miles from Galveston where cruise ships can be accessed, & 110 Miles from Corpus Christie, quiet get-a-way from all the chaotic life of the city, small town living within 10 miles where one can find the friendly service at local family owned restaurants. Private pier where one can enjoy the daily catch without crossing lines with the person fishing next to them. All the amenities of home, where one can find quiet relaxation without staying in a hotel.

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our week at this house. The newly remodeled bathroom is beautiful and the neighbors were great. The deck was a terrific time to spend together relaxing and recharging. I truly feel refreshed. The fishing was hindered because of all of the rain from the week before but we did manage to catch a few.

Below expectations

The house is in a good location for fishing, but there are some safety issues. One, there is a gap in the floor going into the bathroom where the flooring does not meet. I tripped over this in the dark. Second, the lights along the pier do not work, making it very dark as you walk back to the house. Third, we were locked out of the house with groceries in 90+ temperatures on our anniversary with no way to contact the owner. He uses an electronic key pad but doesn't have an emergency contact number posted beside it. When it failed and had us locked out, we had no way of contacting him. At the price charged per day, this was unacceptable.

A few other minor issues: there were no kitchen linens. So we had to use the white bath linens for the kitchen. The soap dispensers appeared to be watered down, making you wonder if your hands were clean after handling fish. Some of the furniture was worn to the point of no padding in the cushions...uncomfortable.

I would not rent here again. Nor would I recommend it to anyone.

As a family we had a great time.

  • 3 of 5

It was a nice family vacation. The house could use some items to make the stay better. Like more chairs to sit under deck in backyard. The upper deck could also use chairs. The inside of house needs more kitchen cooking items and silverware. We made sue with wheat we had. And, over all it was a nice stay and vacation.

Owner's Response: It is a coastal House which means high winds some times and we do not Keep Chairs on the deck do to unexpected high winds that may force chars thru the windows . Glad you had a good stay
