About Arnold Burkholder

Hello My name is Arnold, I currently live in Harlingen, TX which is about 30 minutes from our rental property. I grew up here and couldn't resist not owning a place that my family and I very much enjoy spending our days off and free time. I recently purchased this sea cottage in 2014 and my family and I very much enjoy our getaway home every weekend. The time has come where we have finally made a decision to give others the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful relaxing sea-cottage. Cant wait to meet you!

Nice, Quiet, Clean location - Great for a family

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really enjoyed this property. Aesthetically, the place is nicely decorated with hues of grays and aqua/teal: it's very inviting. Nice TVs with cable for "downtime".

Kitchen is nice; dishwasher is a bit dated but works fine. It has water and ice dispenser in stainless steel fridge. Well appointed kitchen with utensils, pots and pans, coffee maker, etc.

Bathrooms were nice. Nothing fancy, but they were clean. Main bath has tub/shower combo; master upstairs has shower, double sinks. There is also a washer-dryer in the unit upstairs, which was nice except the washing machine lid would not always latch. The main bathroom has a hair dryer.

King bed and large closet in spacious upstairs master with its own deck. No door to master, however. Bed was comfortable. The room on main floor has 2 beds, but my adult daughters voiced minor concerns about comfort. They still slept just fine! And they had their own TV.

There is a deck off the living area where we set-up our own lawn chairs (We buy cheap and then donate to Salvation Army after our trip.) -- there are 2 bar chairs & table on the deck, but I found them uncomfortable. There is a BBQ grill, but again shows its use.

There is a desk on ground level where you can sit, also, either in out of the sun. It overlooks a nice little canal, and you can fish on that dock. My family caught a few varieties of fish and enjoyed that a lot. The deck was very peaceful -- lots of birds across the canal, and it made for a nice, serene, relaxing spot.

We did report this to owner; the golf cart worked for a very short trip around the grounds and ran very slow. But the 2nd time we tried to use it, it had very little power (although had been plugged-in the whole time), and my 2 adult daughters and husband had to push it back to the house. So we did not use it anymore. The activity center and pools are within decent walking distance, so it's not a huge deal unless you want to use it to play on the golf course.

Overall I would recommend this property - pictures are accurate and it's a good location. The owners were responsive to questions I had. Be prepared for stairs! The location was nice because we could escape Spring Breakers at night, but if we did want to visit the island, the causeway was about 3 blocks away, so it was easy over to the island and easy return.

Shopping nearby for groceries, general needs. Parking onsite. Very nice.

Comfortable and roomy property just as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

Our family was able to relax in the nice comfortable and roomy property. All the electronics and connections worked nicely. We had a nice view on the back decks. We brought our kayaks and enjoyed this waterfront property immensely. Too, we enjoyed having the golf cart to run back and forth to the club house and swimming pool. We are looking forward to staying here again.

Very nice well worth the money!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our week long stay very much! Arnold was very quick to respond to any questions we had and even refunded a portion of our payment due to the previous tenants damaging the golf cart. The property itself was very nice with tile floors and large rooms. Great view of the Brownsville Channel and souther portion of the bay.
