2800 Square Foot 4 - Bedroom, 2 - Bath Home On Open Water - Sleeps 10
About Bill Ivy
We live in Dallas and discovered Seaside, Florida in the summer of 1990. We've been back nine times since then and love all the family memories we've made there. We named our home "Almost Seaside" because we wanted to recreate that Seaside vibe of total relaxation and nonstop fun with family and friends much closer to home. It's a wonderful escape from the fast pace of the city.
Bill Ivy purchased this House in 2003
Why Bill Ivy chose Gun Barrel City
We fell in love with this home because of its openness and amazing location. The water views are incredible, especially the sunsets. It comfortably sleeps 10, with plenty of areas to gather together or to seek out some quiet space just for yourself. After a day of swimming and boating, it's so peaceful to relax on the deck and gaze out at the water. And we're just an hour from downtown Dallas and within 5 minutes of the most popular restaurants and bars on the lake.
What makes this House unique
The colors are bright and happy. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want, and there's a large grill outdoors. The indoor dining table seats 12, and there's also an outdoor table that seats 10. It's a perfect place to reconnect with friends, or to spend fun times with your parents, kids or grandchildren.

Had a nice stay at this property over Memorial Day. Property had plenty of room and was well kept.
Great house in a great location!
My family and I had a great time despite the weather. Everyone kept raving about how nice and roomy it was. Kitchen was stocked well enough to compliment a basic grocery trip. My only suggestion would be to add a table on the top of the lake deck.
Convenient location, great water, nice house. We had a great time with family and plenty of room.
The House was spacious, accommodating and had everything we needed. Decorated in Seaside decor and very cute.
Excellent family vacation spot
Our family had an amazing weekend here, size was perfect, there was space to have a moment to yourself with different sitting areas, decks & a nice shady outdoors, plenty of seats. Kids enjoyed having their own room with the futons. Bedrooms & beds were comfy, the decor really made you feel like you were on vacation. 2 A/C units really helped with the Texas summer heat. Kitchen was fantastic size for family meals & cooking. We had issues with our own boat and Bill was kind enough to let us hang at the property until we could get a resolution figured out & put us in touch with his boat mechanic. Kids caught (& released) catfish off the dock, adults lazed in the shade. The inside was super clean, tidy, & fresh, linens all perfect. Outside could've done with a good sweeping for cobwebs, spiders and cicada shells/ skins but it certainly would not deter us from staying there again. Close to town/ Main Street, quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors on both sides. All excellent. Thanks Bill for sharing your home.
Wonderful time and plan to go again.
We had the best time with our kids and grandkids. The house is nice in the inside and very clean. It's very well stocked with everything with the understanding you replace what you use. Very quiet and relaxing. We met the owners as we were leaving, very nice people. We plan to go again.
