Our stay on Copano Bay was peaceful, quiet, and attractive. The home met expectations, the pier was nice, the view very pretty. Once again VIP/Miss Kitty's has done a good job.

bring blankets; there was one blanket on each bed, no spares. It worked very well for us to purchase a big fuzzy blanket from Amazon and a small throw down blanket for the cool outside weather, this allowed us to stay outside to watch the bird activity which was wonderful! Also bring coffee filters, we exploded the machine every day. You may want to brink Keurig k-cups if you prefer. Also bring spices/condiments if wanted.
