What you can't see in pictures
There must have been a glitch in system because I just received the email to submit a review from our stay in 2017. Anyway, I have to be honest and say that although the owners were very friendly and accommodating, the property has the strongest mothball smell I have ever experienced. They must be everywhere on the property. Our clothes had to be laundered multiple times after leaving. No exaggeration here, MULTIPLE TIMES. Even our personal items and toiletries smelled. Basically anything that we had with us. One of the children has asthma and had issues with the mothball fumes and his eyes were swollen shut during much of our stay. The tennis courts were a hit, the deer visitors were fun and the view is amazing but honestly the odor in the home was so strong, it made us want to leave the home every chance we got for "fresh" air. I actually had to get rid of an overnighter bag that can't be washed due to how bad it smelled even after airing out. They say sometimes you get used to odors and don't notice them anymore. I can promise you that the mothball smell we experienced, we NEVER got used to. Every member of our group complained about it. It was everywhere. Inside, outside, around the property etc. It actually seemed the worst inside which is definitely not a pleasant thing. I understand why some people use them but this was over the top. The owner needs to state that mothballs are widely used on the property. Exposure to the vapors can have health effects (look it up) especially in high amounts and in closed rooms. It's also very dangerous for young children who might eat or swallow them. Unfortunately this rental has been remembered by us all as "the smelly mothball house."
This is certainly a very well kept property that boasts of gorgeous scenic views and comfort living.
First off, the homeowners were very nice and welcoming. They truly contributed to our family vacation (19 family members)! Secondly, we pride ourselves on checking the reviews before purchasing/renting anything and those who took time to write a review were not wrong, at all. Chuck and Jeannie are great folks. During our stay we did encounter two issues, but were quickly rectified and for that we are grateful that we chose this property. We all loved how the deer came around the same time daily to be feed (so cool)! Thanks again to the homeowners for your thoughtfulness and hospitality....
Beautiful setting, unique home, perfect for our family.
I would actually give this home a 4.5 stars. Five stars to the owner, their willingness to accommodate our family needs, go above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. We had small grandchildren with us and they enjoyed the daily feeding of the fish in the coi pond, feeding the dozen or so deer that would come very close to feed. The owners made sure we had plenty of food! The tennis court was a fun play place, the hammocks were perfect for any of us who wanted to read or take a nap. There is plenty of room to spread out so family could chill in different areas to watch television, read, rest or play games. There was even a tricycle and small bike for the kids! The view was spectacular in the mornings and late evening! The few little quirks of the home (older home with lots of character) was not an issue as the rest of the experience made up for those little things. If we are ever back in the area with our family, we will certainly be repeat renters!
Perfect for our extended family coming into town for a wedding in spring branch. Chuck met us at the house and was very accommodating. The sport /tennis court was a blast. Comfortable beds. Fed the deer each morning which was so much fun! The scenery on top of the hill was the perfect morning addition to our coffee. Totally private and secluded. Had a great time and would recommend!!
Thank you so much. Really enjoyed having you!

Great house and property
We stayed in this home for our sons wedding weekend. We had a group of 13 and it was very comfortable. There is a lot of space to spread out and the back yard is amazing. The owners were very helpful in every way. We would stay there again for sure!
House was the BEST!!!
Jeannie and Chuck Your the best. House was great for us 8 adult men golfers. Everyone had plenty of space. TV's were great-every room had one. Amenities/ you name it/ there was plenty and extras. Grill out many nights. There are 2 large living rooms with large screens TV's were we watch the super bowl. Seating everywhere.
Sunset off the porch is just beautiful, what a view, you can see for miles. We rent houses when ever we go on golf trips all over the country. This house is second to none. We will be returnees for sure.
Thank you so much Steve! It was awesome hosting you guys because you were so easy to please, there to have a good time and left everything in great shape. (8 adult men, go figure!) We can't wait to have you again.
