We had the privileged of staying at this wonderful house this past weekend. It is impeccably decorated. The information before hand and in a nicely put together visitors guide was so very helpful. This house is really a special place. We definitely got lucky picking this house. I cannot imagine there is another as great as this. I almost did not book it because others mention it is on a busy street, and yes it is, but that can also be a very good thing. It is very easy to find, easy to get to and have access to other roads in order to do some sight seeing. We drove 12 hours from Austin Texas and we were so glad to find this house right off of the main road. Other reviewers have reported that there is "road noise" and there's no denying that if you have a house situated on a busy road that there will be some noise. But there is some noise everywhere you go no matter where the house is located. I found that with my noise machine, that I travel with because I need it no matter where I stay, I was not bothered by the road noise what-so-ever. The way I look at it is that this house is so exceptional, that I can overlook that one small negative. I didn't spend my vacation in my room, so it's really a moot point. I do think you should bring a sound machine and the owner's would be wise to make these available at this particular house, but once you get there you'll see that they have thought of everything else! There are so many extras!!
Our family loved the property! The beds were comfortable and the house was nicely decorated. It was the perfect size for us and our two kids. They were able to run around outside in the fenced yard without us worrying every moment. The channel and marsh land really add to the atmosphere.
Thanks for the great stay!
It was a very nice stay. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Well maintained and very comfortable beds. Our family enjoyed the stay very much. Only negative was that it is on a road that can be a bit busy at times and you can hear the traffic.
Gorgeous home, we loved every minute we were there just wish we could've stayed longer , will definitely come back again, we fished and crabbed and had a crab boil , it was awesome experience, Thank you Judy 😁
What an ideal spot to "get away" and yet have all of the conveniences of home. Our hosts saw to it that our every need and wish was fulfilled. Pirates Cove is located right on a bayou with a great dock. We crabbed (big 'ol blue claws) and fished (catch and release) while we relaxed and enjoyed the view. All tackle is provided so we didn't need anything except bait. The house has a nice layout and it was spotlessly clean and tidy. Everything that we needed in the kitchen was anticipated and readily available. The hosts were kind enough to even include a couple of bottles of wine for our enjoyment. What a place! Thanks again for your hospitality and hopefully one day we'll get back. In the meantime we'll refer all our friends!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, it had everything we needed in a perfect location. We were far enough from town to escape the chaos and close enough to enjoy everything it had to offer. Absolutely beautiful views from the decks and I personally enjoyed my afternoon siesta in the hammock below. Thanks for everything and we will be back.
