Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I rented the property for a laid back bachelor party weekend for my brother. We all had a great time. There was plenty of room and lots to do after we got out of the water at night.

Annual family get together

  • 4 of 5

Our family meets at Matagorado each year for more of get together than fishing. We usually stay at one of the homes on Beach Road but we were looking for somewhere more private and homey...your home provided our family that. The kids loved the game room and the ice machine! And having coffee on the upper deck in the morning was perfect. The kids love to fish and I hope your pier will be ready next year.

Not impressed

  • 1 of 5

The pictures are deceiving. It looks like an aged place that needs more TLC. We really missed not having a fishing pier. The back porch had overgrown greenery and very dirty outdoor furniture. The ice machine was nice and the kids loved the pool table and ping pong table.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. You knew before renting that the pier was not usable and you were offered a chance to cancel. We have completely trimmed back all the greenery around the back porch and cleaned it. Our photos accurately depict the house. We are glad you enjoyed the crushed ice machine, pool table and ping pong table. We are hoping to have our pier repaired soon. All in all, our property deserves more than one star. We have 14 reviews that average 4.6 stars.

Had a blast spending a weekend at this great house in April of 2016. Could not have been more perfect. We kept our boats in slips at the harbor and the drive to/from was not bad at all. Not many places in the country where you can experience the Colorado River and a bay system like Matagorda.

Thank you for opening your home to us!
