Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful weather, great home, they even greeted us with a gift basket which was unexpected. The home was clean spacious and inviting. The kids enjoyed running around the massive front yard where we could sit in the shade and watch. It was a so fun Sunday came too soon for us, and Thank you for allowing us to stay a few hours later so we could get more boating in on Sunday.

Great stay, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to take the kids and grandkids on a close by couple of days during spring break and decided on Lake Livingston. We have a state park pass and like Lake Livingston State Park. This house is within about a 20 - 30 minute ride from the park. Everything in the house was great. The owners make sure that there are all the needed items for a stay. We did bring or buy some items to try to replenish some that we used but that was not expected. The grandkids completely enjoyed watching the deer each evening as they wander through and near the yard of the house. We did a "snipe" hunt for a friend of one of the grandsons (grandkids have all been on snipe hunts in the past) and he was, we will just say, excited. He and all of us enjoyed the festivity of it. We walked through the neighborhood and down to the nearby park. Drove down and fished at the marina two evenings. Caught a few 4 - 5 inch long catfish but you would think they were 10 foot long sharks by the reaction of the kids. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and the owners are outstanding people and want to hear from the renters, good or bad. We usually choose different places for our get togethers, but if we do go back to Lake Livingston we will definitely use this place again.

very spacious home

  • 5 of 5

all the rooms are good size, and the house is set back far away from the street so the kids could play horseshoes in the front where we could see them.

Great getaway for the family!

Comfortable Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for three weeks here and it was very comfortable and quiet. Being able to watch deer from the porch with my daughter was nice and being just a short walk to the lake allowed us to fish and swim with ease. Michelle was a joy to talk to and was very accommodating.

Cape Royale's "Lightwell Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

My family recently spent three nights at Cape Royale's "Lightwell Cottage". For the most part, the description of the location, layout, and amenities were accurate. The swimming pool is actually a community pool and not a private pool. And, we were advised that an application to access the pool must be approved by the POA, which could take up to 4-6 weeks.

The property was lovely and welcoming. It was very clean, well-maintained and pet friendly. The owners added a special touch by leaving a basket of snacks on our date of arrival.

There are limited activities, attractions and accommodations in this area except bird and deer watching, so we had to get creative when it came to entertaining our 'tweens'.

The owner was responsive, courteous and a real pleasure to work with. This property is ideal for families with young children, a girls getaway, or couples looking for a quiet, romantic getaway. Two thumbs up on this property!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is very comfortable, clean, and neat, and has all the conveniences of home. It's also very spacious. We were very pleased, and because the place had all the comforts and conveniences of our own home, we were able to focus our time and attention on the rest, relaxation, and family reunion we were there for. Would highly reccomend it and hope to visit again myself some day.
