Long over-due review!

  • 5 of 5

My father, step-mother, my husband, myself and our 4 children stayed in this home last year (2015) from July 20th-25th. Let me tell you, we had the BEST time! The pictures do not do this place justice at all! The fenced in backyard gave me peace of mind for our younger children, especially being right on the water. We brought our boat and tied it up to the dock. We went jug-lining during the day and were frying up some fresh catfish by night! We all enjoyed fishing from the pier and playing in the water. We also brought big floats and would float out to the middle of the cove. It was amazing! We had the most memorable experience. The house had everything we needed and Robert, the owner, was amazing and so accommodating. We will absolutely be returning! Unfortunately, our funds right now didn't allow us to make this same trip this summer, but we will definitely be back next summer for a repeat of another amazing family vacation! I was so disappointed that we didn't get to go back this year. Thank you Robert for providing such an awesome place for everyone to enjoy!

Relaxing Lake Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Nice properties, the pictures don't do it justice! Very nice house, clean, and owner is very responsive and made us feel right at home. Location is very peaceful, we felt like we had whole cove to ourselves. We look very forward to staying there again, and highly recommend it!

Excellent Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great nostalgic family vacation spot at the lake for Memorial weekend. The fenced-in, completely shaded backyard was perfect for our 18 MO twins and 2 small dogs. Our kids' aunt and grandparents stayed as well. The dock was perfect for accessing the water. The kids had so much fun splashing around, they did not want to get out. We really enjoyed the view of the lake from the deck and could relax while watching the kids run around the yard. The master and second bedroom enjoy great views and an upstairs deck, as well. This was our first vacation as a family and to Lake Livingston, and this place was so peaceful (no loud, all-night parties, etc.). It was completely family oriented with quiet neighbors. Even though we had never been here before, the smell of fresh cut grass, firewood, the way the sun danced on the water, and the spirit of the home itself brought back memories of visiting our own grandparents in the summer. Being from the suburbs, it was nice to see so many huge, unusual birds right from the backyard. Having coffee first thing in the morning on that deck watching the water change was the best. We also checked out the state park, which was only a few miles from the home. The home is fully stocked, and we did not need to run to the store at all. The owner was so nice and accommodating. Thanks for making our first vacation so memorable! We would definitely love to come back.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for the Labor Day weekend. We could not be more pleased with our decision. The homeowner is very accommodating and always available should a problem arise. Our 2 children (9 and 6) had a great time swimming and fishing from the dock. The boat ramp is just 2 houses down and is only for homeowners and guests so it's never crowded. Location is quiet and traffic is minimal. Home has just about everything you need, but is close to town should you forget to bring something. We plan on returning!

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing trip to this lake house. When we arrived everything was exactly as advertised. I love that it is right on the lake and fully fenced in the back and we were able to bring our dogs. We have kids ages 7-17 who all enjoyed playing in the lake. We don't own a boat but it was plenty of fun to fish off the dock and float/ swim in the lake. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone and we look forward to a return trip in the future.

Fun family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous Father's Day weekend vacation! The house was clean and comfortable. The fenced in yard was perfect for our toddler and dog to play. We watched egrets and blue herons from the porch and dock all day. The owner was incredibly nice, helpful, and available if we needed something. We rented a boat at the nearby marina, and were able to dock it at the house while we took a lunch break inside. One of the bedrooms is a loft-style room without a door, but it still worked out great for our group. The lake water was clean and the view was beautiful. Our weekend was filled with relaxation and fun!
