As promised, we turn the spotlight to Texas vacation rentals after featuring San Francisco vacation homes earlier this week.
One characteristic that families and large groups will love: For the price, homes offer renters miles more in space.
Take the Arlington single family home pictured above. At five bedrooms and $265 to $315 a night, the vacation rental makes a compelling case for rallying the cousins, in-laws and grandparents for a Southern getaway. The haven, which boasts contemporary furnishings, a two-car garage and Wi-Fi access, is within driving distance to Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor, Arlington Stadium, Rangers Ball Park and American Airlines Center.
Was your boat underutilized this summer? Plan a side trip to Joe Pool Lake, a nearby retreat for outdoorsy types, from fishermen to campers. If you’re craving couple time, book a table at the four-star marina restaurant Oasis, where guests dine on fresh caught mahi mahi and juicy cowboy ribeye. With the champion fish–like the 58-pound marlin–hung as a reminder of past triumphs, the restaurant embodies Lone Star pride.
So take that SF. This one’s for Texas.
