  • Best South Padre find EVER!

    "Our family of 8 (ages 12-90 and from 3 states) found Casa Familiar to be one of the best vacation homes we have visited. We were looking for a place to accommodate active young teens and their parents as well as sedentary elderly grandparents. Casa Familiar fit like a glove. The owner, Trish, was very responsive and accommodating. She took my phone calls and answered all my questions as we were deciding on a place. The house is clean and comfortable with great access to the beach. It boasts a well appointed kitchen which allowed us to have amazing home cooked meals (I admit we are a bit of a foodie family!). Each room has a bathroom en suite with a powder room on the ground floor. The floor plan is perfect for splitting up the various groups as the grandparents enjoyed the first floor bedroom with easy access to the living area, kitchen, patio and pool, while the younger members enjoyed the upstairs bedrooms as well as the game room and sunrise balcony. But the story that sets this property apart from anything else is how kind and generous the property manager, Kathie, was to us. When I learned the Idaho brother couldn't make the trip at the last minute, I was concerned for my 88 and 89 year old parents, as they were arriving early and would not have a family member taking then to the house as we had planned. I called Kathie to ask about ground transportation, and she offered to go to the Brownsville airport to escort my parents to the house. That's 45 minutes each way for her! She took them to the house, took their luggage in for them, then took them to a nearby restaurant so they could get lunch. I was very touched and so grateful to Kathie that my parents didn't have to wait 4 hours until the next of our group landed in Harlingen. I don't think you get that type of treatment in most places. We had a beautiful vacation and hope to come again next fall. Thank you to Trish, Kathie, and the wonderful cleaning staff from la familia in California, Indiana and Texas."

  • Road Trip with Granddaughter

    "This was a before school starts road trip with my oldest granddaughter (16). She had heard my stories of Wimberley and the Blue Hole, her choice! The Shepherds Rest was perfect for fact she & I had little down time. From grilling homemade pizza on the gas grill (hint: turn on the gas valve behind the pit, it is hooked up to the house propane tank, genius), enjoying the hot tub after long shopping trips on the square (town only 2-3 min drive) and we had a chance to enjoy some Blue Hole swimming (5 min. drive). The water at the Hole was approx. 60*, crystal clear, but she could not get me to jump from the Played darts, got challenged to a ping pong game, but sorry there were no balls to be found? Took a short walk to the Blanco River (right across street) The house is in excellent shape, bedding comfortable, fully equipped kitchen, good water pressure for showers and plenty of towels. You almost do not need to leave the property. Location, location, location... Customer service is A+, Aaron was very helpful on my only call to ask "where's the propane tank for the grill?" immediate response, even checked on us it 7 enjoy."

  • Wonderful place to stay for a family of 6

    "This place is the "bomb." We have stayed here twice now; once last year for a week and this past week. We're already planning another stay in the future. The owner is a wonderful person to work with and her place is extremely nice. There are things to do everywhere on location. The marina is only a couple hundred yards from this place, the hotel is just across the street with so many amenities you can imagine. Right outside the back door is a beautiful relaxing pool. I give this place 5 stars for a family of 6. Ryan Pate"
