About Spencer Bell

I worked as full time fly fishing guide in Arroyo City for many years before moving to Colorado. Whether fishing with fly or conventional tackle, Arroyo City is the gem of South Texas. What Port O'Connor used to be and South Padre never was.

Spencer Bell purchased this house in 2007

Why Spencer Bell chose Gulf Coast

The house functioned for many years as a fly fishing lodge and is appointed as you would expect. It is comfortable but not stuffy. It has been voted the Best Rental on the Arroyo for 4 straight years.

What makes this house unique

Perfect location close to the park (ramp). Also, it sits at the widest point on the Arroyo, providing spectacular views of the surrounding South Texas ranch country.

So much room! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this house on the Arroyo. Plenty of room for all our kids to sleep. The pier to fish off of and a spot for our boat was a plus. The kitchen was stocked with anything we possibly needed to cook with also. We will definitely be looking to book here again!

A great place for family.

  • 4 of 5

To be fair, I only gave it 4 stars due to some construction going on. Our overall stay was very comfortable and relaxing, with plenty of room for the family. The open floor plan makes it super roomy and the enclosed patio makes for a great poker night, even on a rainy day. Be sure to download music!!! Reception and wifi is extremely limited. AT&T should be less of a problem. I only say this because I check work emails from time to time. Bring pillows and blankets, but the beds are very comfy. Extra towels is never a bad idea. The bbq pit is a good size and has a decent smoke box. But the outdoor palapa and fishing dock certainly makes up for it. Boat lift works good. Last but not least, we were super pleased with the service. Staff was so attentive and questioned us for any need and even made the construction area feel less noticeable. Which was great since we had Kids running around. Definitely worth coming back to. A wonderful spacious place!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Communication with the person handling the rental could have been better. Thought the place made up for it. It's a great location and nicely maintained place. My husband and a few of his friends celebrated his 30th birthday fishing and relaxing all weekend. They loved it!

Place is nice but very poorly maintained and dirty

  • 3 of 5

This place has a lot of potential and is very spacious, however not a single door would lock and place was not very clean. Also the person in charge never showed up to check us in or to check us out either. The location is beautiful and the palapa and pier is an awesome place to fish. I would expect that for the price the place would be well kept and sanitized
