***OUTSTANDING***

  • 5 of 5

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!

Relaxing Time!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family had a great time on the Colorado River. The location was great for us - easy to get the beach at Matagorda or into Bay City. The house was clean and lots of fun with games, ping pong, pool, fishing or just taking a nap. Lori was great to work with and answered all my questions. I would return to this house.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights in this beautiful house on the Colorado River. It was just so relaxing! I am already planning my next trip there. The house, the view, the river everything was amazing.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a fishing/relaxing trip for us (10 30+ yr old guys). Even though the river's condition was less than ideal we still caught more than 10 catfish and a few croakers. It's also close enough to matagorda bay to get plenty of bay fishing in too. Property could benefit from a new grill, but that is a very minor issue in the scheme of things. Highly recommend!
