Evolve Vacation Rental

Minimum age of primary renter:25
If you are looking for a view and boat access to water, then this place is great. I wouldn't stay here again though because the owner didn't offer anything special inside the home. I've been to a few short term rentals like this and many owners go that extra mile to make the home special. This didn't have any of that.
Suggestions to the owner and observations:
-Add coasters to living room so we don't ruin your tables
-Add decor- It was clean but boring
-Add a binder with list and locations of local restaurants/grocery stores etc.
-List of things to do in area (in that same binder)
-List of places that would deliver (same binder)
-Fix wifi password on laminated doc
-There is only 1 plastic chair downstairs compared to picture on ad.
-Plug by microwave does not work
-We had to unclog the master bath tub (really gross)
-Face towels in master bath are bleached and old
-Add basic kitchen items like Pam spray, coffee, foil...anything!
-Directions on whether or not we can use the outside boat slip deck
-Need more wasp spray
-Seal the stair railing- easy place to get splinters.
-Pots and pans need replacement
-Add one more cookie sheet
Nothing spectacular with the exception of the view.
Beds were comfortable.
For the price, I expected more.
Greg, we're happy to hear you enjoyed this home's beautiful view! This homeowner takes great pride in their home, and we're sorry that you felt as though the owner didn't offer anything special inside their home. The home is also exactly as pictured online, so travelers can decide if it's the right home for them before booking. The listing also states the area's closest amenities, such as downtown Houston, galleria area, Washington Street, and the medical center, all with great restaurants, bustling nightlife, and a plethora of activities to do. The owner appreciates your other suggestions and will look into implementing them where appropriate. This vacation rental also provides the industry standard amount of kitchen supplies and other essentials. The owner does not stock the kitchen with additional items due to hygienic and cleanliness standards that they have for their property. The owner looked into your concern regarding the outside chairs and found that one of them was mistakenly taken upstairs. Since your stay, the chair has been moved to its original location. As is evidenced by the many great reviews, this owner is accustomed to providing five-star experiences, and we feel confident that future guests will be delighted. Best, the Evolve Team
Great property to stay and relax for the weekend. All of the household amenities provided were of great help so you don't have to bring towels, pots, or cleaning products. The only complaints i had were the listed WIFI did not work which was rectified with a phone call to the property owners and also the property needs a good dusting as far as spider webs and dust/rust on all the outside games provided. Other than that the stay was great!!
This house was amazing clean and relaxing. We fished every evening and caught catfish. We had such a peaceful weekend and Kemah was close by to take the kids for some fun. Overall amazing.
Great spot for a medium family
This place was perfect. Super clean and as described. If fit our family of 5 perfectly. The grill and outdoor picnic table were used frequently. We’d happily rent this place again.
A house with the WOW factor!
We've used VRBO for several family holidays in the US in recent years (we're from the UK), and searching through the hundreds of properties in the areas we want to visit is always part of the fun (and we spend several evenings doing it). We're very picky, and when travelling halfway around the world, you don't want to end up somewhere "ordinary"...
So we jumped at the chance to stay in this home on stilts in the middle of a nature reserve, and yet so close to Houston and all the local attractions.
Comms with the owners couldn't have been easier, and they were super helpful. We thought the pricing was fair, and the property lived up to our every expectation for the five nights.
Amazing views from the property, and my son loved watching the various boats, jet-skis and occasional commercial barges going by. Having access to the table tennis and table football table downstairs were an added plus.
We didn't know the area prior to coming, but we instantly felt very safe. It was also very quiet, even when there were groups in the properties both sides of us.
All in all, an excellent place to stay and it would come highly recommended from all four of us! Thank you to Jose & Mariana for letting us stay in your property.
