    This was our second year to stay at this property, and it's every bit as good as it was before. Clean, has all that you need, clear labeling and directions for everything as well. We kept the boat on the trailer out in front of the house each evening, then trailered to the matagorda harbor marina for a quick, easy launch. (4 ramps and lots of dockage means it rarely gets crazy). Grilled at the house 2 nights, ate out 2 nights. Matagorda is a very small, easy going town. A real getaway for anyone from a big city.

    The house is amazing; fully stocked kitchen with wine glasses and a wine opener! Plenty of room for the whole family to watch a movie in the living room after a long day on the beach. Fans in the closet were a bonus (always have to sleep with one on). Will definitely stay here again!

    This cabin was very clean and we enjoyed our stay. I only have 2 negative critiques- I like to sleep really cool and night and the thermostat is set where it cannot go lower than 72. I don’t think this should be set where it cannot be made cooler. The second critique is that the towel I used in the bathroom was well worn and it had a sour smell from being so old. Other than these 2 things, we enjoyed our stay there.

    Lovely setting!

    This property was as described in listing. Comfortable beds and soft sheets. Big TV in living area. The recliner chair did not recline. Kitchen well stocked. We are allergy sufferers and the strong fragrance from the air freshener was a bit much for us. I unplugged it and sat it on balcony during our stay. Easy solution to that problem. The coolest temperature setting is 72. We like to sleep cooler at night so this was an issue for us. Great to have nice washer/dryer in the house. Loved having morning coffee and eating meals on the balcony. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent. Overall it was a great stay.

    This was our second time at thus location and just like the first time it was amazing!

    We had a BLAST! Check in was painless, overall house and included items in kitchen and bathrooms were AMAZING! Everything that we needed, was there! House layout was absolutely perfect for a couples vacation, which we had and it worked out great. Green Light at pier was awesome and we enjoyed the fish it brought and the convenience of fishing right at the house which we did late at night. Beds were soft and comfortable, however, air conditioning was not cool. Fans were provided in each bedroom which helped some. Location of the house was extremely close to either a gas station, Dollar General, Ice machines or the beach. Perfect location in our opinion. Highly recommend this house!!

Our faves are the porch swing that is in a shaded area looking out at the water, the water hose (yes... sand is a pain to clean off shoes and swimsuits) by the stairs to rinse off sand after a day at the beach and the vicinity.

    The property was great but may need new cleaning staff. Overall property was clean but dishwasher was full and not sure if dishes were clean. Just left them and washed what we used by hand. Outdoor ashtray had not been emptied but not that big a deal. Plastic glove was left on dock so not sure if it had been left by previous renter or belonged to owners. Fishing was great..caught stingray, trout, flounder and lots of crabs. I would rent this property again.

    We wanted to vacation at a house that we could do some fishing off the dock. And that we did! Pretty good variety of fish. We even caught a sting Ray and a couple of eel! The house was very clean and the AC ran great which was very much needed to get away from the heat! When we needed to get in touch with the owners, they responded quickly! Overall, it was a great stay and we would for sure rent here again! I think our only complaint would be that we had to drive away from the house to dump the trash. It would be amazing to have a trash can at the front of the house so we didn’t have to put the trash in our car’s. Thanks for an amazing vacation and wonderful memories!

    The Catch and Relax home is a great place for many reasons. First, there's great communication from the owners. Also, it's got the classic Texas beach house feel you'll find in Galveston or Port A, but it's on the Colorado River and only a couple of miles from the beach. The home is setup up perfect for 2 couples (our group), but I can see 2 small families making it work as well. I'm a native Texan and I've literally been to every beach town on the Texas coast. Matagorda is a unique area because of the town's location and the road to the beach. This house is almost exactly in the middle between the actual town and the beach. 5 minutes to the beach. 5 minutes to town. It's a great location if you're in Matagorda to fish or just explore. The Matagorda Harbor is less than 10 minutes away. However, the only keeper Redfish I caught was off the pier at the house!

    We had a fantastic trip and really enjoyed the property. The owners were extremely responsive and very kind. The house was comfortable and the kitchen was very well stocked with cookware and utensils. We came to fish and the dock was perfect for all four of us and plenty of space. We caught many different types of fish and were able to see porpoise swim by. There is a fish cleaning station on the property which was great. My only complaint, which seems like a common theme in the area, is that there is no close trash disposal. The dump is not open every day and you pay to dispose of trash. Definitely not a deal breaker for us, and we would love to go back.

    We absolutely loved our stay. Had a blast on the bay, beach and even chilling at the house on the dock under the stars. We limited on reds and caught a mess of crabs, sharks, and even a massive black drum off the back dock. Aside from the lovely interior our favorite part about this property was the sunset view. On the top deck you can just see west bay in the distance as hogs and deer roam the bank of the other side of the river. 10/10 will definitely stay again. Thank you for the experience! - Drew

    To start off, the name Catch and Relax is absolutely the perfect name this property! The house was incredibly clean, and you can tell attention to detail is at the forefront of these owners. So much so that every switch was labeled! (This alone gets 5 stars in my book) the house is set up perfectly for two couples, but more people could definitely stay comfortably without issue. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need from dishes to koozies, and even a full size washer and dryer! The waterfront view from the top and bottom balcony is amazing and there is plenty of seating and grill provided. The property perfectly accommodated those that wanted to fish (husbands) and those that just wanted to relax and make fun of our lack of catching (wives). The lack of catching is not a reflection on the property, more on our sub par fishing skills. Lastly, the owners of this property are absolutely amazing and went far above and beyond to make our stay a true vacation. Would definitely recommend this property!

Great place for a 1st Anniversary, house is beautifully decorated, but not over the top - which a lot of rentals are when at/near the beach. Looking for a quiet getaway in a small town near the water? This is definitely it!

As you can imagine we were on the dock all the time! Perfect location between beach and town. Neighbors were quite and friendly. The only thing that we wished we had more of was the rod holders on the dock and another light. Other than that it was amazing! We brought our own fire pit and enjoyed a fire almost every night! Everything was perfect! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. We will be back for sure!

Great communication with the owners, awesome layout of home with all the comforts needed, just bring your toothbrush and change of clothes. We caught fish everywhere and cleaned fish using owners great cleaning station. Tried to catch the ginormous grouper under owners decking 😂 Not successful! Walking the beach was quiet and clean.

The home was closed to town and everything within a 10 mins driving distance. The beach was a surprise treat. Located right on the Gulf of Mexico. It's cleaned and the water wasn't too cold. We did a little surf fishing and caught a bunch of fish there. All in all, the rental was great place and I would recommend to anyone who wants a little R n R.

    Perfect place for our family of four to just relax and unwind. This is a place to refuel. If you feel like fishing, just walk a few steps out the back door. Wanna go to the bathroom, get refreshments, take a nap? Just walk a few steps back inside. Your teens are tired of fishing, but you’re not? No problem—they can go in and watch tv while you fish all night. You can even rest your rod in one of the rod holders and go take a break. Come back out and you might have a catch. And everything you could possible need is right there in the house. Fry your fish and eat at the picnic table on the porch. LOVED it and already planning our next visit.

Speaking of the deck, we watched the sunset each night from the new deck and it was beautiful. Also enjoyed the swing downstairs while the guys fished off the dock. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay here again. Thank you!

    Very relaxing

    It was just as expected as the pictures shown. We had an awesome time sitting on the pier fishing, crabbing, and seeing the awesome sunsets. The owner was very acomidating when we mentioned the coffee pot didn't work very well, he went and bought a new one along with a surprise coffee. We will definitely keep this property in mind for a future trip!

    We had a wonderful time during our stay. The home is very clean, up to date and very well taken care of. The home has a great setup and is furnished with everything you need from dishes, pots and pans, plenty of towels, extra pillows and bedding. The beds were very comfortable, even the air mattress in the living room. We enjoyed sitting out fishing and watching the boats go by from the decks. Coffee on the porch each morning looking at the river was amazing! The location is ideal for a quick trip to the store or a day at the beach. The owners were easy to communicate with and very responsive. We have stayed at several vacation rentals and this is among the best. We will be back for sure.

    My husband and I stayed here back in July and knew we had to come back. This time with my best friend and her husband. We had a great fishing getaway with lots of fish caught. We are already talking about our next stay. Highly recommend!

    We loved out stay at the Catch and Relax Retreat. The location was great - not too far from the beach area or to town to pick up anything you might need. The house was beautiful and clean and had everything we needed. And we caught fish right off the deck! Thank you to the very thoughtful owners for making our 37th Anniversary trip so special.

    We enjoyed fishing from the back porch and the short drive to the beach. The house is very nice and comfortable. We plan to stay again.

    My husband and I were looking for a quick fishing getaway and found the perfect place. The location is great and easy to find. The house was very clean and had everything listed. We loved the large dock and and green light for night fishing. We will be back for sure!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location really couldn't have been any better. Whether we needed bait, wanted to go to the beach, head out for fishing in the Spring Bayou (caught quite a few reds that were keepers there) or if we wanted to go into Matagorda for small items we were able to do so very quickly and comfortably. Location is everything! The dock, pier and the house were amazing, too. We really didn't need to bring anything. We brought our cast iron and griddle, but those items were already there! Literally everything we needed was there. The communication with the owners was always open and quick. The best vacation rental we've ever had. We would 10/10 times recommend this place to friends/family. Actually, we already have!! Perfect!!!
