Perfect house for a small beach wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our wedding weekend. It was the perfect place for so many reasons. The giant deck was able to sit all of our guests for the reception and the walk over was perfect as an extended aisle. We also had our wedding party surat the werd with us and had plenty of space. The owners were so kind to host us and even gave suggestions to help the day go smoothly. I can't say enough about our Perfect day!!

Thank you

Loved the seclusion

  • 4 of 5

We really loved the property. Overall it's a good house. It was in need of some deep cleaning as their were cobwebs and dust. It felt more like a fishing camp than a beach house. I would stay here again.

Beach (house) Wedding, Large Deck Awesomeness!

  • 5 of 5

The deck was perfect for us (50 guests--primarily outdoors in the evening), and we would absolutely recommend for a similar function. Communication with the owner/owner rep was easy and with quick responses via email before arrival, and we had no issues requiring contact with them during our stay. The property was fairly well picked up, and sure, there was bird poo along the banister, but it is the beach after all, and it cleaned up easily.

Two couples stayed in the house with the bride and groom, with other guests staying in area beach houses and a hotel in Lake Jackson (approx 14 miles away). The ceremony was on the deck Saturday near sunset, followed by reception. There was plenty of room for the chairs (4 rows of 6 on either side of the aisle, with a fifth row of two) and six 8 ft tables in the back corner for quick set up. We cleared 50 people for the wedding with the owner rep, but the deck would likely fit another 10+ comfortably (probably not tables for that many eating). We catered fajitas for the reception, which were setup buffet style on the large peninsula counter in the kitchen and had plenty of room.

We had no troubles with mosquitoes, but there was no shortage of ants. A can of Raid ant killer kept them at bay where they seemed to be most invasive, but they were also on the beach, so I can't fault the property owner for their presence. They were completely manageable with the occasional spray of their trails...they weren't upstairs until after the all the people ate on the deck (and still wasn't THAT bad).

The master bedroom can be the warmest part of the house, but a window unit a/c makes all the difference. Our biggest complaint would be the water. Other beach house renters in our group were also told to not drink the water, so it's an area thing; the trouble we had was water pressure and consistent temperature for showers. We wound up stopping using the master shower, and learned a trick for the other shower...when it goes cold, turn it all off, start again and the hot comes back. I can't imagine having the house at capacity (sleeps 20) and expecting everyone to get a warm shower very close together.

During the day Saturday, the beach in front of the house was in use by the public, but it wasn't crazy. Sunday, on the other hand, was clearly the day a very large group (or maybe more than one) used the house as a meeting landmark...remember, it's always public beach, but was fairly clear for our honeymoon through Friday.
