Dock Holiday

Enjoy the serenity of this precious cottage on Caney Creek as seen on HGTV in beautiful Sargent, TX (aka “The Best Kept Secret on the Texas Coast!”) Recently remodeled with a great large open concept kitchen/dining/living space. But why stay inside when the outdoors has so much to offer? Moss-laden trees, a spacious deck overlooking the creek, a large furnished patio space below the house, and the pier with a covered cleaning station round out this great property. Spend the day barbecuing, fishing off of your private pier, and reading a book in the peaceful hammock. Or take short drive or boat ride over to the ICW and Sargent Beach. Enjoy the fishing, take a stroll on the beach, collect shells, or swim (at your own risk – no lifeguards) in the surf!
