Nice home Beautiful Views
The home is nice size and has some great views. We enjoyed the outside area very much. We were working in the area and much prefer a rental home over the hotel scene.
I have mixed feelings about our stay. We found the bedrooms to be nice sized and clean however the mattresses were very uncomfortable. The master bed didn't have a mattress pad so you could feel the quilting through the sheets. I don't know what kind of mattress it was, but both my husband and I didn't sleep well at all. My husband found drill bits in the area rug by the bed with bare feet.
We were disappointed with the deck off the master. There was no furniture off the master deck and maybe that's because the view is of the left hand neighbor's very cluttered yard and green pool. There is also a large metal/wood roof looking thing propped up against the trampoline in the yard. The neighbors on the right had a beautiful home and was immaculate. They were extremely friendly and made good neighbors.
The upstairs guest bedroom mattress was equally uncomfortable to my son. The internet, which I asked before renting, if it was good, was not. We had issues from the beginning with speed and connectivity. I asked how to address it and was told to unplug it.
The kitchen was adequate, but had very little stock. No coffee, sugar, flour, variety of spices, etc. There was some oil and celery salt in the cabinet. There was no ice machine in the freezer (no biggie, really), but then there were no trays left to make ice. I was able to cook some meals after stocking the pantry. The stove was stained pretty badly (glass-top electric). I could never get the oven to work so I used the toaster oven instead. Plenty of dishes, pots, etc.
The bathrooms were nice size and clean. The hot water here is very hot so caution when using. The downstairs bathroom didn't have a toilet paper holder which I thought was strange for this type of home. The toilet paper roll was left on the back of the toilet.
There are many light switches throughout the house and it's a bit of a hassle trying to figure out which switch controls which light. I think it would be wise to label them so it's easier on people who are unfamiliar with the house.
You do hear trains across the lake. It didn't bother us because we have trains where we live as well. We left a day early due to the mattresses and not getting good sleep because of them.
Great house on the lake!
This past Christmas holiday, we decided to visit some family in the Houston area. We looked at several properties, but we chose this one and I couldn't be happier!
The property manager made himself available to answer our questions regardless of the time. Will definitely be staying here again during our next trip to the area.
Great property right on the lake!
I came to Houston to visit family and found this wonderful lake house on VBRO. I was coordinating the property rental with family nearby and the owner was very responsive to my many inquiries. The house was beautiful and was well stocked with everything we needed. The neighborhood made for great morning walks! The planes from the airport in Houston did make some noise each morning between 6:30 and 8:30 as the jets lined up on parallel runways, but this did not bother us at all! I plan on visiting this property again!
Great time on the lake
We live in the area but decided to take a bit of a Staycation on the lake for the weekend. We invited some friend and had planned on doing some boating and eating some good food and generally having a great time. The house is a very unique house and laid out to accommodate a good sized group of people. It was very clean and well appointed. Everything we needed for a good weekend was included. The beds were comfortable. The house has some age on it and there are a few maintenance items that probably should be addressed but overall things were good.
Regarding boating..... Boater beware! If you are like me with a boat and like to go somewhere for the weekend and drop the boat in the water and bounce back and forth from the house to the boat and leave it in the water all weekend, this is not the house for you. This house sits directly on the Main Lake and docking your boat on the pier is sketchy, the prominent wind will blow the waves directly at this side of the lake and blow your boat into the pier. If you have a nice boat it WILL get beat up. I would not leave any boat tied up over night. There is a local boat ramp that is about a mile away that can be used for free which is handy. That said I have a 22' boat and parking the boat in the driveway and moving it back and forth was not my preference or intent when I rented to property. The house and drive are situated in such a position that if you are not well versed in trailering you will struggle moving in and out. I did not have too many issues but it was certainly not easy.
That said, the property is realy noce, the views are great and we had a great weekend. Thanks Famen for the use of the house.
Great place to get away! Beautiful home. Pictures are exactly how the house looks.
We had a great stay at Flaming Arrow. The views off of the back deck were outstanding. Large spacious kitchen which was fantastic as we had a lot of people. Overall a tremendous experience!!
