We arrived just a couple of days after Hurricane Hanna but James & Tonie contacted us prior to our trip to let us know everything was still in order but that there may be some debris in the area for clean up.

We were immediately impressed with the spot - it is as-advertised and right on the water. The grounds were a bit soggy, post hurricane, but that didn't present much of a problem. Our shoes got muddy but there is a hose right at the top of the steps from the beach area that took care of that. I think my shoes were cleaner when I left than when I arrived!

The outdoor shower is awesome! The hookups worked great. The outdoor seating is a great touch, as is the picnic table.

I will say that there is quite a bit more traffic than we expected on the road and they don't always go so slow. So be extra careful if you are bringing dogs and small children. This did not deter from our experience at all - everything was great...just something to keep in mind!

We WILL be back. Thanks, James & Tonie. We love your little slice of paradise!

Response from James & Tonie, the Host, on August 10th, 2020

Thank you Brenda for the review. I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves. We were concerned since a hurricane passed by just a few days before you arrived that it would be kind of rough. Not the best circumstances for our first campers. Unfortunately we can't control mother nature but felt very blessed that we didn't have any damage to our property. Not everyone on the island was that fortunate. Sorry for the traffic. During the week it is usually extremely quiet but on the weekends people come in to go to the public beaches and after sometimes sitting at the bridge waiting for a barge to go thru they get in a bit of a hurry once it opens up. There has been talk of putting in some speed bumps to slow people down. I hope they consider it for the safety of all. We will truly miss the swing bridge when the new bridge is completed, that is one of the things we've loved about the Island. Thank you for leaving everything as you found it. We would be happy to have you back anytime. Happy Camping! James and Tonie S.

The campsite was awesome! We loved that it was private and the proximity to the beach. Also perfect for RVs. Full hookups, large concrete pad, charcoal grill, water hose for cleaning sand and an outdoor shower! We will definitely be back! Host were amazing!

James and Tonie did a great job designing the space. They were also very kind when we spoke via text. The site was very clean and perfect for us! The water looked like river water, but the beach was empty and the waves make the same sound, no matter the color 😂.

This site exceeded expectations. Large concrete pad with plenty of space for any RV, hookups included. The pad sits on a large lot with a big grassy area. The beach access is excellent. The seawall is not too steep and there is plenty of sandy beachfront in comparison to other areas on the island. We love Sargent and are glad to have found such a great spot.

Very nice campsite in a cute neighborhood. Site was well appointed with water, sewer, electric, picnic table, wooden seats, and an outdoor shower. All exactly as described by the owners. It was right on the beach, as were all the mosquitos😳, not a fault of the owners! We didn’t think to apply bug spray before setting up camp, totally became a mosquito buffet! When the wind was blowing it was better since those little suckers don’t fly well! We loved the view and enjoyed it both from inside the trailer and outside with our chairs right on the beach. We’re California natives, learned about Texas rocky/shelly beaches this trip which are beer very different than the sandy beaches we grew up with. We grabbed a drink and bite to eat at Hooters which is just before you cross the bridge. We were stuck there when barges were going through so decided to wait it out at the restaurant. Truly a hole in the wall but made a great patty melt, fries, and onion rings.

A super nice spot. We had to leave a day early due to Delta moving in but we had dinner at the Crab Trap and cooked breakfast outside enjoying the beach at the same time! That was my first time seeing the coast of TX.

Thank you Rachel for the nice review. Hope you had a safe trip back home and was able to stay ahead of the storm. Storm was kind to us. Only a little debris on the beach but no damage. We feel very blessed, we haven't had any damage after 4 hurricanes this year. If your ever back in Texas, your welcome back anytime.....Enjoy that new camper! Tonie S.
