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.

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

Great place for a family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Nicest place on the Arroyo. Super easy checkin and the place had everything we needed and lots of room to spread out. Fan in the cabana even made it a nice place for afternoon relaxation after a long day in the water

Excellent Stay at Arroyo City

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation stay at the Arroyo was outstanding. The house and facilities were very nice and the fishing under the lights on the dock was good. The boat stall worked very well for keeping your boat in the water during the stay and not having to put in on the trailer. The access to the bay is easy and close by. We as a family want to rent this house again for a much longer period of time. Maybe even a family reunion!

Great family getaway for fishing

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house on the water. Had two boats with our party of 6 adults. Used the boat lift for one of the boats. Loved the grill in the screened in porch area and kitchen was perfect for our large supper every evening. Kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots and pans & utensils. Very close to State Park boat ramp. View of the Arroyo was unbelievable . Great house for entertaining large families. Only drawback is we had a difficult time with parking 3 vehicles and 2 boat trailers inside parking area. Other than that the house was perfect. We plan on coming back and booking another stay.
