It was a great place to stay to experience the gulf coast. We had a beautiful weekend in December. Next time we need to stay longer.

a much-needed getaway

Grapevine TX


We had a great off-season getaway in the Happy Kat. The house was clean and well-stocked. The lake views are so beautiful and soothing! We rented a golf cart to get to and from the beach and we’re able to Instacart groceries. The only thing that could be improved was the bedding...the linens seemed warm and could use a few more blankets in the winter. Overall we loved our stay there!

kleber thanksgiving 2015

Austin TX


We really enjoyed the house and the stay at Cinnamon Shores. Everyone was very friendly -- guests, staff, people in Port A generally. The house was comfortable and worked out great for us. A couple of small issues (patio door lock and inoperative microwave) were repaired quickly and cheerfully. Access to the beach was easy and pleasant, and the kids and dogs had a blast. Only area to improve: the floors were a bit dirty on arrival, and a couple of minor details were missed like the clocks being set to the current time and random home repair materials being left in the closets.

happy times at the happy kat

waco tx


The Happy Kat was a wonderful experience:) The views from the decks were an added bonus! Mornings were especially wonderful for our children with all the fish, turtles and ducks swimming by. We were able to bring our two small dogs as well, which made our trip even better. The layout of the house was excellent for socializing and rest. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone. Thank you for an unforgettable stay.

happy kat cottage thanksgiving stay

Sugar Land TX


The unit was pleasantly decorated in blues and beiges and the artwork added a beach feel. The layout was fabulous, offering plenty of room for five people. We loved the double doors that opened onto the balcony which looked out on a small lake. The kitchen was well appointed with plenty of cookware and even a set of spices! Never ran out of supplies like soap, toilet paper or hand towels. We will definitely return next year!

family vacation

Belton TX


Great house, need to have more food options on the property, would like to have seen some shops on the property, and the seaweed on the beach was horrible. If you could rake the seaweed away it would greatly enhance the beach. For a new property I can see a lot of potential.

loved cinnamon shore, cottage could use new mattresses

Austin TX - Texas


We had a wonderful vacation! We picked Happy Kat because it was pet friendly and we wanted to take our dogs with us. Everything went well and all was wonderful...EXCEPT the mattresses are the worst. None of us slept the entire weekend. They are mushy and old and offer no support! Please buy new and we will be back again.

Response from Cinnamon Shore Rentals, LLC

Thank you for your review. We contacted the owners and let them know that you were unhappy with the mattresses and they have bought all new mattresses for the beds and we will be switching them out! As a new owner it is always great to hear from guests about anything that needs attention like this. Again, thank you for letting us know so that we could address and correct it! I am so glad you had a good time and will be coming back to see us again.
