AMAZING! Paula was not kidding when she said you could see whooping cranes in the pond across the street - we saw loads of whooping cranes, sandhill cranes, spoonbills and egrets. What we didn't expect that just completely blew us away was that the whooping cranes came up to the bird feeder in the backyard!!!! We were closer than you can imagine and it was magical. The location was great to access the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge (also an amazing spot to visit) and easy to get into Rockport/Fulton for groceries etc. It was a quiet spot, with no street lights to cloud the view of the night sky. The house its self was immaculate with brand new appliances, plenty of hot water for several showers back to back, a thoughtful first aid kit, the furniture was cute, the art work beautiful and the linens were very soft and clearly new. The beds were comfortable and good quality. Also, I felt safe here traveling with just my kids and I. Paula was quickly available and I felt comfortable asking her questions. I'm truly hesitant to write this review because I want Paula's place to always be available for me and not to increase in price as it becomes more popular!!!! I wish I could stay here every weekend 🙂

Paula was a fantastic host. We happened to be at The Crane Cottage during the coldest week that Texas had seen in many years. We came to watch Whooping Cranes, and we could see them everyday from the windows of the Cottage. Paula checked on us every day. We never lost power, and we always had heat. The cottage itself is beautiful, with photos and artwork on all of the walls. The kitchen appliances are brand-new, and we were able to cook meals every day. I can’t say enough good things about Paula, and the Crane Cottage! If you are a bird lover, this is the place to be! We also saw many egrets, herons, Spoonbills, sandhill cranes, and other birds too numerous to mention.

We had a great time at the Whooping Crane cottage! The location was amazing—we saw whooping cranes from the front door within five minutes of arriving. The inside of the cottage was spotless. Paula was easy to communicate with and always got back to me quickly. We can’t wait to come back!

This group of cabins are just delightful, and have a beautiful view of St. Charles Bay. The units are very well appointed, as the owners thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. If you enjoy wildlife, and are looking for a quiet place to relax, this is perfect. It is also convenient for day trips if you choose. We loved it, and will definitely be going back.

The Whooping Crane cottage is perfectly located to see the water and have open space around you instead of the feel of the city or commercial development. The cottages are new and very nicely appointed with awesome soft absorbent towels, wonderful light through the many windows, great common space and kitchen. Very nice bathrooms. Bright, clean and new. Paula was a wonderful host and so very easy to work with and most importantly very quick to respond. I hope to return for another stay.

I have so much to say about these rentals that I don’t know where to start! I think it’s important to first say that Paula is amazing! She is so personable and helpful and you can tell she really wants you to have the best experience in her rentals. When we pulled up to the rental it was more than we could have hoped or imagined. The view! The cows next door! The birds and deer at dusk! Absolutely loved all of those special surprises! When you walk into the house it is so bright and clean and so much attention to detail. She really thought of so many ways to make our stay convenient. From the stocked cupboards for cooking to laundry supplies and snacks, extra blankets and sheets. And the front porch is so wonderful with the high chairs to look at the view. Do not miss the deer at dusk and all the different kinds of birds that stop by to feed in the backyard throughout the day. Our nature loving daughter took so many pictures. The views and walk to the water was such an extra blessing. I can not say enough and I would greatly encourage y’all to stay at her rentals. We rented the Whooping Crane and it was spacious enough for our family of six.

The Whooping Crane Cottage far exceeded our expectations. It was spacious. It was immaculate. And the art work was beautiful. Checking in and out was easy and the host was very kind and quick to respond for anything. View of the bay from the front deck made for a very tranquil setting. The deer and geese in the backyard were bonus. Loved watching them from the kitchen window. I’d love to stay there again. Don’t hesitate to book. You won’t be disappoint.

Birders, stay here! Minutes from Goose Island and Aransas NWR, but best of all, we sat on the front porch and watched 12 Whooping cranes, 4 Sandhill cranes, 3 vermillion flycatchers, 2 belted kingfishers and much more. Comfortable and clean, great location. Host was very responsive and helpful. Loved the easy check in and digital front door lock.

Loved our stay at the Whooping Crane Cottage!! We were a little early for the Whooping Cranes but we saw and heard the Sandhill Cranes. They are beautiful. Out the kitchen window, I spotted a Vermilion Flycatcher and a Kingfisher!! The cottage is super cute and clean. We will be back.

This is the second time we have stayed at Goose Island Flats, and rented the 2 bedroom cottage. It was perfect the first time when we knew we were hosting dinner with some other couples who were staying across the street in their rv's. This time we rented the larger unit just because we like having the additional space. These units have fabulous views of the bay, and you are in the perfect setting to see birds of all kinds arriving each morning, and heading home in the evening. If you want to see Whooping Cranes, this is your place to stay! Very good communication with host. We highly recommend staying here. The host Paula is real nice and always keep a good line of communication. We would recommend this little cottage to any one.
