We stayed 6 nights in mid April. This is a great spot that is within 60 minutes of great birding locations to both the east and west. There is a birding shop that is well stocked with guides that one can look through Our unit was well supplied with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, private bath, bottled water and a tv. The unit was clean and the area was very safe. Keith is a very helpful but non intrusive manager and I really appreciate that. As for suggestions, Keith sends out directions and instructions via email a few days before your arrival. If you are on a road trip (like we were) and do not have internet access or attend to your email (as I did not), it is best to have a map from Google Maps and Keith's phone number with you before you leave. Second, a guide is a definite asset for at least a day. We waited until we got there before we decided to try and book one and none were available. Keith will line one up for you but book one when you book your room. Finally, we wanted a Mexican meal in Mexico so we went to Arturo's in Villo de Nuevo Progresso which is south of Weslaco and Estro Llano Grande State Park (an excellent birding site). Meal was great and there was no problem crossing the border.
