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 Arroyo City

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.

Fantastic trip and GREAT house!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great, house was nice, clean, and a perfect fit for our group. Open kitchen, dining room, and living room with TONS of bedrooms and places to sleep. The palapa was great and was perfect for a morning coffee or evening gathering place. Definitely coming back.

As Expected

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather did not cooperate with us, our stay was still quite amazing. This is our second time staying at this place and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The place was cozy and warm and although the weather wasn't, we still managed to catch fish under the lights and have a great time with family and friends. Thank you again for allowing us to stay. Looking forward to the next time!

Awesome place

We had an amazing time. My husband, 3 teenagers and I spent Thanksgiving week relaxing and enjoying the wonderful home. Kitchen fully stocked with dishes and cookware. House was clean. Fishing dock was awesome. Will definitely stay here again.

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!
