About Property Manager
Aaron and Gina Plaunty were born, raised and reside in southeast Texas. They met at Lamar University in 1997. Aaron was the teaching assistant in her first Geology lab class, and that was where it all started. They were married in 1998 at Lamar University and both earned Geology degrees. Being more of a “work smart, not hard” kind of guy, Aaron passed on working in the oil industry and both of them started teaching science, which gave Aaron the time needed to pursue other business ventures. After earning his Master’s, Aaron became a middle school principal. He contracted his first home, having no knowledge or skill prior, and realized he had a knack for it. Soon after, he was building homes for others full-time and also started a secondary business helping other homeowners be their own contractors, like he had once been. Aaron and Gina had two children during the next 9 years. While she stayed home with the kids and did his bookkeeping, he built hundreds of homes in the Beaumont area. With the dooming economy outlook of 2008, Aaron decided to act quickly and look for another career direction that would be less economy driven. Together, they opened the first urgent care medical facility in Beaumont, TX. For four years, they managed a very successful, medical business. During the end of those years, Aaron built two beach houses near Galveston, TX, which became his first rental properties. In 2013, Aaron sold the medical business, and has since devoted his time to purchasing properties in all the places that they love. Gina and Aaron have condos in New Orleans, beach rentals, and riverfront property in New Braunfels, TX to build yet another great vacation destination. Aaron will also soon be building the first beachfront restaurant in Crystal Beach, Texas. Although the family travels often, this lake house in East Texas is like their second home and its where their kids want to be every chance they get. They can only hope you enjoy it as much as they do.

Why Property Manager chose Brookeland
Lake Sam Rayburn is the place where you can make the most awesome family and friend memories. You can take the kids tubing, jet skiing, or skiing. You can put up chairs and umbrellas and spend the day on the water or on the beach. You can make short drives to local restaurants, or choose to cook elaborate meals for several families. The spacious house gives everyone room to enjoy time together, or have peaceful moments away from their crowd. The sunsets alone are breathtaking! Guests will have room for everyone, a lake view and great access to a sandy beach, and are only minutes away from boat ramp, groceries, restaurants, and a country club!! Best location and amenities!! And to top it off, beautiful and new!

We had a great experience at this house. It was everything the listing said it was. Beach was not much because water was still up but the kids still had a blast. The owner was very helpful and always answered any questions we had. Definitely would rent again.
Great family vacation!
It was a beautiful home and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the large kitchen and space. One major issue that occurred is a storm came in quick and the waves were ferocious, we all (12 adults) had to get in the water to keep the boats from hitting each other. It caused some possible electronics issues on one of the boats. Also, the water was high so there was no beach really and it was very grassy in the water. Near of these issues could be controlled and we made the most of it. The owner clearly had no control over either issue and gave warnings about both. There were a few cobwebs on the chandeliers which wasn’t a major thing except the cleaning fee is $200 (which is understandable because of the size of the house). We still had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the stay.
We had a wonderful time, beautiful home and view. Plenty of room for everyone. Worth the 3 hours it took to drive to the house.
Thank you so much for your review! Hope you have a chance for a return visit:)
Very nice house and back porch. I would not consider it waterfront but more water view. Owner was helpful when I had a question.
Enjoyed the stay but not waterfront
Beautiful home with a lovely family room that really allows for an awesome lake experience. I want to warn other guests this is more water view, not water front. There is another property between you and the water and a good walk down to the waters edge. There is hardly a yard so don’t plan for many outdoor activities. The patio was great! Wish we could have used the propane grill as the small grill provided took forever to cook for 10 people. Home was beautiful though! Oh and the power went out while we were making dinner the first night. Not the owners fault - it was very windy during our stay. Just unfortunate luck.
Our beautiful, newly constructed, home that sleeps 22 guests has so much to offer families, friends, and groups of all kinds! There is no home between us and the water, however two homes are closer to the water and on each side of our view, just as its pictured repeatedly in our listing. Our home was situated on a curved street, yet we managed to face our back patio with windows to the living area toward the water. Can you find a better view at another rental? Absolutely. But if you are looking to host up to 22-23 guests, enjoy two master suites, 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, be able to park your boat or watercraft on the water, and see all the gorgeousness such as your family and friends on the sandy beach from inside our home, even while standing at the fully furnished kitchen…maybe while the Astros are playing from every room in the house, please consider our place. My family and friends along with many guests have loved our view and the extreme convenience of the direct access to the beach and water’s edge. Every aspect and amenity our home offers is described in great detail, along with pictures. If you happen to stay at our lake home when the weather is not ideal, you may find our large covered patio just heavenly. When the lake level is normal and weather permitting, we often play washers on the back porch or on the sandy beach! If you are planning outdoor festivities, I kindly advise guests to look at the description, pictures, or simply send questions to the host before renting a home, if they have particular plans that involve particular needs.
Great house for a large crowd to gather and enjoy the outdoors!
The house was well built to accommodate a large crowd. The owner, Aaron, was attentive to our needs and available whenever we needed him. The lake is beautiful and perfect for all kinds of water sports. Campfires by the waters edge was a great way to end the day and watch the sunset. We had a great time.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home! Hope you stay again!
