The property is always in perfect shape and ready for us!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 30 women always have a great time! It is the perfect setup for a women's retreat! Plenty of room to spread out but also intimate to get to know each other! The owner and over seer are great to work with! Having an elevator is perfect for getting food and people with limitations to the main floor and back down!

This place is absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had 30 people staying here for a wedding. The place was great! Everyone was comfortable. Thought with that many people it would be too warm inside but that was not the case. Air conditioner works great and has the capacity to keep this large house cool.

We tried to have the reception under the house which is a perfect place to have it except with canal in the back and all the rain they had two weeks prior to our stay - the mosquitoes were terrible. We even sprayed the area. While a little better it did not get rid of all the mosquitoes - we had to move the reception in to the house during the dinner. I think it was just bad timing on our part. The inside of the house was Great for a reception as well because it is beautiful and spacious inside.

Anyone who stays here will fall in love the place.

Sharon the manager is a very sweet lady and will assist you if needed.

It says on website does not have wifi but it does- we were all happy about that.

All in all fantastic place. Would stay again if ever a need for a place that can hold that many people again.

AMAZING house! Fit our family perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a beach wedding that was beautiful, the underneath patio couldn't have been a more perfect reception spot! The property manager was great, and easy to contact. We definitely would recommend this house to anyone looking to house a large number of people. We have a large family that is mainly boys and we all fit perfectly!

Great Family Reunion! Very well designed space for our event.

  • 4 of 5

This house is beautiful and wonderfully designed. We had 30 plus people here with a large range of ages and it worked out great for us. My father needed the elevator and that was one of the reasons we picked this house and that worked great for him but also for all of us bringing up all our stuff and groceries, etc. The patio underneath was awesome. The kids played there forever. The rocking chairs on the porch was the perfect morning or evening get together for those not sleeping. There was always a breeze. We couldn't have asked for better weather even though it rained a few times. Having the patio underneath the house, plus the design of the house itself was perfect when that happened. Having all the hoses and showers downstairs was also a huge blessing. The bed and pillows I had were so comfortable. We would tire ourselves out at the beach every day and then play games in the great room. It was wonderful having everyone together under one roof and yet having some privacy also. The owner/manager was very helpful and accommodating. We had to drive a long way because we have such a big family and still growing and so we may not be able to do this again, but it is not because of the house or the accommodations. We loved our time here and we got to explore another great area of the Texas Gulf. Very nice!
