Great cottage with lots of original details. Cottage is located on a 7 acre compound that was once a fruit plantation. Property dates back to the 1920s. Lake on property and lots of great views.

The space

Space is central in the Rio Grande Valley. We are 40 min from McAllen and South Padre Island, 20 min to the outlet mall and Brownsville and 20 min to Progresso, Mexico. Great for bird watching. Many guests have seen the parrots, screech owls and barn owl on the property. We are also very dog friendly and welcome pets.

Guest access

Besides all the amenities in the cottage we work with all our guests to accommodate any and all request.

Interaction with guests

We love for our guests to feel at home and will interact as much as they'd like.

Other things to note

We request that pets sleep on their pet bed, not on the bed. Some guests are allergic to dander and it is difficult to remove dog hair on the linens.

Really cute and peaceful place! We enjoyed seeing the birds and walking around to look at the trees and flowers. I would definitely recommend this place to others!

I'm originally from the Valley and typically stay with family when I head down to visit; however, this time, I was unable to stay with family that had enough room to accommodate for my five fur-babies. This was my first time booking with Air BnB. My husband and I were not disappointed. The cottage was very comfortable and had an enclosed patio that was perfect for my fur-babies. I would definitely book again!

Paradise! The cottage is just as described much even better in person. So very peaceful and beautiful. Excellent communication and hospitality! Felt like we were at home even though we were away. We were here in business and look forward to coming back and staying for pleasure. Highly recommended to anyone!

Think 2nd floor deck with view of a quiet waterway. Think Whistler ducks, cormorants, coots, egrets and herons along the shoreline. Add a little breeze in the palms, occasional glimpses of flocks of green parrots, or the perfume of citrus blooms from a huge back yard. Don't forget to include the quiet shady street with it's joggers and walkers and bikers. This is the place for a seeker of solitude in the midst of Rio Grande Valley. I doubt there are many that will compare.

This was our second time staying at this cottage, and we'll most definitely be back in the future. The property is so cozy and we never want to go back home after staying here. The host is very accommodating, and she always makes it a pleasant experience. This is our favorite Airbnb.

I stayed at cottage 3 for around 3 months. It felt like home and the hosts were very nice. My dogs loved it, too. After a long work week, nothing beat being able to fish for catfish in the river. The house is comfortable and stocked with all the essentials.
