Amazing property and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this awesome property. Initially, we had an issue with the air conditioning on the second floor not working, but one call to Silvia, the property manager, and she had someone there that day to fix it. The property was clean and well stocked, with very few areas that were respectfully requested as private. There were a few areas that weren't kid friendly, meaning there are expensive furniture items or breakables, but we just made them off-limits for our children. We didn't have the pleasure of socializing with any of the neighbors, but there were absolutely no issues on that front either. The neighborhood is very quiet. I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a large family or multiple families looking for a great location, an incredible property, and a property manager who goes above and beyond.

Good property

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed the stay at this house. There was an issue with a couple of snakes in the house and a really big snake on the back patio. Additionally, being close to a resaca and having a lot of palm trees in the area, there were a couple of large roaches we killed--it's a Valley thing.

The contact we had in Harlingen, Sylvia, was a very nice person to be in touch with throughout our stay. She made sure we were well taken care of throughout the week we were there.

I would stay at this house again.

We really enjoyed our stay . The home has a very nice set up ,very comfortable for having family stop by.We really enjoyed the outdoors with such a beautiful view. Love having enough bathrooms . Small bedroom downstairs was perfect for my sister-law .Parking was great since we rented 3 cars. Very convenient to the airport. Hoping we will do it again soon. Thanks again for being such a concerned homeowner. Jo anne

Wonderful place to stay if you have a large group

  • 5 of 5

We were in Harlingen for my Grandson's wedding. Our entire family (10 adults) stayed there for several days. We also had a couple of others spend the night before and after the wedding. The guys in the wedding party really enjoyed the 3rd floor game room, playing pool, poker and video games until the wee hours of the morning. The home is in a residential neighborhood and is very quiet. The home is about 35 years old but in very decent condition. All the kitchen appliances worked and well we did quite a bit of cooking while we were there. All in all, a very pleasant stay. It was everything we hoped it would be.

House Full of Golfers

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house. We had 6 couples and we all golf. The men played in a tournament & the ladies had fun going to different golf courses. Sylvia was great. If we had any questions she was right on it. Her & her husband were terrific. The hot tub at night was great to relax. This place is very central to everything. We will stay again.

Wonderful peaceful view, spacious, clean, all amenities, great hospitality by host and housekeeper

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I live all over the country. We had to come in unfortunately for the death of a parent. This house was the perfect place for us to be able to 'live' together for a few days and remember my father while enjoying each others' families. I only wish that we would have come together for a happier occasion so that we could have had time to enjoy the beautiful house more, especially the view. The place had all the amenities we needed including blow dryers, curling irons, iron and ironing board, kitchen appliances (especially coffee maker), washer/dryer, etc. This is a wonderful place to stay for a reasonable price in Harlingen, Texas. Close to the hospital (where we needed to be initially) and close to the highway. Thank you, Alicia
