Gary and Carol's accommodation is unique to any of my previous AirBnB experiences. Whilst it is a part of their main property it is essentially a bespoke self contained, private, fully furnished and equipped residence. The attention to detail is second to none and everything you could possibly need to make your stay a memorable experience has been catered for. There really is nothing further that I can add that hasn't already been covered in the numerous 5 star reviews already listed.

The apartment is sparkling clean, nicely decorated and has a nicely stocked kitchenette. This apartment is perfect for a single person or couple looking for a comfortable place close to the beeches and the city. Gary and Carol are very hospitable. They made the outdoor space, complete with grill and hammock available for guest use too. This place is an outstanding value. We will definitely book with Gary and Carol on our next trip to the Texas coast.

What a wonderful space. It's a private apartment attached to the rear of their home. The location is close to everything including the water. Gary and Carol are extremely thoughtful and quick to respond to messages. The wifi is stable and fast ( it's important! ). Thank you for the opportunity to stay with you!

Sometimes you run across the rare occurrence of an AirBNB host who is worth far more than they are charging. I have stayed in a couple hundred properties, and this was one of them. 10/10.
