About Pat Castro and Brenda Thibodeaux Castro

Brenda was born and raised in Louisiana as a Thibodeaux... Pat was born and raised in Texas as a Castro; thus was born our business, Castreaux, LLC. We are retired Petroleum Landmen. We moved into our home in 2009 and fell in love with the water, wild life and a slower pace of life. We have three furr-kids, Paceaux (pronounced "Paco"), a Shih-tzu; Petite, a Shih-Poo and Peanut, a Yorkie.

Pat Castro and Brenda Thibodeaux Castro purchased this studio in 2009

Why Pat Castro and Brenda Thibodeaux Castro chose Toledo Bend Lake

La Casita provides an affordable place for those looking to experience a couple of days or more of pursuing the joy of fishing on Toledo Bend or for simply just being with that special heaven on earth, fishing with that special someone!

What makes this studio unique

Across the street in the green belt we have a family of Bald Eagles that have become part of our neighborhood. Now and then you will see the red fox scurrying into the woods and sometimes at night you can hear the coyotes. And on nights having clear skies you can see the stars that some of us had not seen since childhood. Toledo Bend beautiful in this part of the country...e'nuff said!

Beautiful and scenic

  • 4 of 5

Would definitely recommend La Casita. So quiet and pristine. The accommodations were so clean. The bed was very comfortable. The A/C was nice and cold. Parking under carport was convenient too. The hot tub was enjoyable. BUT MOST of ALL - the host was the host with the most! Mr. Pat was so there for our every need. You know how you always forget something! We just were so laid back and restful and sat under the pergola (which was shady most of the day) and enjoyed the breeze.

We couldn't have been happier with our stay! Mr. Pat and Mrs. Brenda were very hospitable and the cabin was so clean and comfortable! The view of the reservoir was fantastic and we even brought our kayaks and fishing poles! The hot tub was nice and relaxing.
