Comfortable Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

5 couples stayed in this home for a week long visit. The home was comfortable, spacious, fully equipped, kitchen was large enough for several people to be in there at one time. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The outside area as well as pool and hot tub were adequate for the 10 people in our group plus several additional people. Sylvia (Property Manager) and her husband made the stay very enjoyable. They were pleasant and kind and were available if needed. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to rent a home in the Harlingen area. We have requested the home again for our visit to Harlingen next year. The Owners of the home have been easy to work with, answered our many questions before arrival and have been a delight to deal with.

Great home base for a group of friends

  • 5 of 5

Well located, clean, house with mostly huge rooms! Stayed here with friends during the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival. This home was close to our meeting location, Hugh Ramsey Park, restaurants and other retailers for food and supplies. Very well kept, and easy to share. Almost all the bedrooms had their own bathrooms.Weather was cool, so we didn't use the pool, although it looked inviting. Thanks to Sylvia for keeping everything in order!

Very spacious and clean

  • 4 of 5

Our Family of 12 enjoyed the Villa in Harlingen Texas. Our Granddaughter at 5 hardly left the Hot Tub and the rest were in the pool all the time and enjoyed the slide and the adults went fishing in the Lake behind the property. We are on the Go all the time and the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful . We spent a couple of days on padre island and home was close . shopping for groceries was close by . we cooked all of our meals and felt kitchen was a bit dated to cook for 12 of all ages and make chocolate chip pancakes .The Kitchen stove didn't work properly Most don't probably cook on vacation.At 100 degrees plus temperatures and high humidity the house was always cool and comfortable.Plenty of parking for our three vehicles.

The home is clean and no bugs or spider and Sylvia was our contact point and she is great and very helpful .

Thanks for a great place to enjoy our family time together.
