Great stay but stay on your toes will the maintenance!

  • 2 of 5

Very charming and comfortable trailer home in a gated and safe community. Our stay was pleasant except we had some difficulty locking the sliding door at this place and pay attention to the email and list of rules on top of the already flawed technical difficulties like AC, though owners are quick to respond which is great just don't have a too busy trip or you might just let something minor slip with the maintenance.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had a difficult time with your "maintenance" of following our instructions. When you called us to inquire what we meant by do not leave our thermostat on vacation hold you did seem a bit confused. We have a wireless thermostat that everyone else has been able to operate with no issues. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our home and the community!

Comfort of Home

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved staying at this home. The homes location is perfect. Close to the highway, restaurant and 40 minutes away from South Padre Island. The home is in a gated community with a pool which made it a great bonus. The home is well maintained with all the comforts of a home. Me and my family will definitely come back again.

Better than any condo we have ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

We have owned a two bedroom lockout timeshare on So Padre Island for 31 years. This home has 4 times the space as our condo with more amenities. It has a kitchen with all the gadgets we don't even have at home in Austin. With two shaded car ports (only needed one) we could park our car out of the hot south Texas sun. It included a heated pool and spa as well has a wonderful shuffleboard court.

We loved the close proximity to the Mexican border (8 miles on newly paved highway). Our daughter had to have extensive dental work so we selected a wonderful young dentist in Nuevo Progresso and saved about 66% compared to our local dentist.

We will certainly return if we ever have need for dental work in Mexico.

Sweet summer cottage

  • 4 of 5

John and Deidre were amazing. They eye flexible for us in our crazy schedule. We were in town for a track meet. We were told we weren't registered for the Sunday event and we needed to cancel. When we got there, the error was corrected and we needed the extra night. John was awesome to deal with from start to finish.

Safe and friendly community. The place was well furnished.

  • 4 of 5

This trailer is in a safe and friendly community in Harlingen. It comfortably fits about about 3 people and is well decorated and furnished. Whenever we needed help with something, the owner was quick to respond. Overall, this place is a great choice to stay at when visiting Texas with family.
