Great weekend with a cool "home" and comfy bed
Posted on: 9/21/2016
First off perfect location!!! Right by the ramp. Owners are good ole home grown folk, very accommodating! Room was comfy, decent selection of channels, bathroom clean and ready to clean you up after a day of fishing. If you're a city folk get over your material mindset and just enjoy the comfort of away from the city. Nice deck to chill on, but the view isn't much unless the barge is big, other than that you see rvs and rich people spending money on a colorful condo.. Perfect getaway apt/home/room... Enjoy and book when it's available... We've found our home away from home. Driveway is good for parking as there are two entrances. Park your truck or car under the piers. Water hose good for cleaning up the boat and equipment when you're all done!

The Owners of the Property will be very pleased to see your comments. You are right, they are very special. Hope to see you again!

We had a great time in Port O'Connor. My husband and 2 grandchildren, ages 10 & 13. Very laid back and relaxing. Accomodations were just what we needed. Kinda risky, sight unseen. My only critism would be the stains on the kitchen floor. Needs replacing. Size was perfect, plenty of towels for all and with the rollaway bed and futon could easily accomodate extra people if needed. If you were there to fish, location would be perfect. We made the long drive to Corpus to sight see, but it is quite a drive. Tigrett and Michelle (owner) very helpful.

Great experience!

This cabin was clean and appropriate for the rate. We make an annual fishing trip to this area and I expect we will use this property again. Very close to boat ramp. Parking space to keep boat hitched up at night. Enjoyed the deck too!

Second time we have stayed at this location. Its close the boat ramp and thats a plus.

Totally dirty and uncomfortable
Posted on: 12/12/2014
This place is pretty filthy, very old, dust everywhere especially behind the beds, some of the kitchenware was not cleaned and there were crumbs and god-knows-what on the papasan chair that I wanted to sit on. The beds? Forget it!. Mine was like sleeping in a U, because that's the shape it took, the mattress was so flimsy. Really, this place doesn't look like it has had one thing changed since the 1950's. On the other hand, there were plenty of towels and sheets, and the shower was pretty good. The outside deck is nice, as well. But I will never stay there again. It's proximity to the Fishing Center/ICW is a plus, however.
Response
Pete, thanks for taking the time to post your review. I hope you did have a chance to meet the owners (who live next door). The Tennison's truly care about your feedback, and we would not be surprised to find changes taking place at this moment.
We do hope you'll contact us again for your next stay. As you know, we have a wide variety of rental types and amenities. We'd love the opportunity to find one that better matches your expectations.

Super cute cabin!
Posted on: 11/11/2014
This little cabin is right near the water and very convenient to everything in POC. You can walk to Hurricane Junction for a nightcap. It's newly renovated and has everything you need for grilling and watching the sunset. The deck is a great place to hang out and watch boats come in. The beds are super comfortable! We highly recommend this spot!

Poor poor place
Posted on: 7/18/2017
We just stayed here 2 days this week. If you like Roaches then stay here. The shower had mold in it. The middle island sides are coming off got cut 2 times by it. Microwave would take turns working. No hot water. Took cold showers. When you get there you have a note on closet door to flip breaker for water heater but must be something else cause we didn't have hot water. It's not 200 yards to a beach it's 200 yards from private property. I was really excited about the place till we got there. Lady in office when we stopped to pick up key was on phone with someone talking about facebook. When she finally got off she headed me the key I asked where it was located at and got " I think there is a map in the envelope" wow what friendly service. Sometimes people forget who's paying their salary.
Response
Dee,

We appreciate you taking the time to post a review of the Tennison House after your recent stay in Port O'Connor, and are very sorry that the home did not meet your expectations. It is an older home that is quite popular because of its location. It is just yards away from the Fishing Center, a boat launch facility, in which free passes are given during your stay. The owner of the Property is fully aware with your dissatisfaction and as a result has scheduled the remodeling of the Bathroom / Shower this fall. In addition the Owner is currently doing minor repairs to the house to improve its overall appearance and safety.

Upon check-in, you should have been greeted and presented a key and map to the house. At check-in, we also stress the fact that we are available 24/7 by phone. If you experience any problems during your stay, we ask that you contact us immediately. Unfortunately, during your check-in we had a temp filling in for our rental agent. This

1/2 roll of toilet paper for 4 people for 3 days? really. your set up and clean up people dropped the ball completely on this one. 1 beat up skillet (1935 model) and one 6" cast iron skillet does not add up to all the cooking pots and pans one needs to cook a meal with. really, really poor management here. cindy needs to actually go into the house and look for herself for a change. it will open your eyes, that's for sure.
Response
David, I would like to personally apologize for the oversight. Toilet paper is definitely something that we provide for all of our guests, and when we mess up, we need to know. However, should you need anything during your stay, please know that we are available by phone 24 x 7. I'd also like to let you know that because of your comments, a basic set of pots and pans will be added to the inventory at the Tennison House. Again, please accept my apologies. Cyndi

Location is great as is the breeze on the front deck. Perfect place to stay for a weekend fishing trip. All 4 in our party had their own beds and there was plenty of room for us to hang out as well. We will definitely be going back!

This is not the first time we have stayed at the Tennison house and hope it it won't be the last. I hesitate to give a good review for selfish reasons. I don't want to be booked when I want it. We have stayed at other places because this place was not available. Location is the best reason, The Tennisons are great and helpful folks and the comfort for a group of fishermen is very good. Thanks again for the great stay even though the fishing was great but the catching was terrible. We look forward to our next trip. God Bless!

Tigrett representatives we very courteous and helpful. The Tennison house is old but clean, very convenient to the boat launch at the Fish Center. We lost a wallet with a large amount of cash in it. The folks at the Fish Center found it and returned it. Helps renew our hope that honest people can still be found. The Tennison house will be the place we stay on our next trip, and we hope that that will be soon. Thanks again for making our stay enjoyable.

Great Place, Great Owner
Posted on: 10/22/2015
My wife and I , along with our two kids, recently spent 3 nights in this wonderful cottage. The cottage is located very close to a boat dock which they give you passes for complimentary use. This is a place to stay for fishing expeditions as there is no beach within walking distance that we found. Most of our evenings were spent in the outdoor living area where the owners came down from the above house and visited. Super nice people. As far as the cottage goes everything is in new to like new shape, very comfortable beds, and fully functioning appliances. Would not recommend for the handicap as there is a flight of stairs to climb. Also interior doors to bath are very small. I will definitely look this place up for future stays.

Great escape!
Posted on: 12/12/2014
We have stayed at Tennison House several times and as usual our stay was great. Renovations to the inside were done over the winter and I must say that they did an outstanding job. The owners live on the property and are friendly and helpful and include boat ramp passes in the package given upon arrival. Joe and Michelle, (the owners) are more than happy to share where to fish, eat and or where to go for nightlife. We'll be back!!!
