Great Beach Views Outside; Rats and Roaches Inside
Edward B. from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 Pros: Great location and easy beach access. Cons: giant roaches inside (got on our food), found rat droppings on one of my flight flops and under the couch after the first night. Dishwasher stopped working and the downstairs bathroom toilet seat cover was not attached (just cosmetic but indicative of level of care property receives). Suppose this is some of the risk you run with vacation rentals. Would not stay here again.
Christy L. from Lexington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 This was a nice, clean wonderful house to stay in. Convenience to the beach was great. I would highly recommend it.
A guest from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 We stayed at Lost Colony when it was first built..-a luck our concept. For the price, felt our vacation rental was minimally furnished in kitchen - cooking ware -- linens were minimal... No extra bedding or pillow cases.The living space was tight without taking advantage of the ocean. One last point, TEXANS DRIVE BIG TRUCKS on the beach and the breach front was lined with trucks and tents.
Sharon R. from Canyon, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 Perfect location that is a little isolated for a family with young children. The beach was a walk away and more shallow plus the pool had a 2ft deep section. The decor was updated and nice but there were a lot of little annoying things wrong. Light bulbs burned out, shower door didn't shut, shower didn't turn off, difficult to run the bath, knobs missing, crayon markings, ect. It was clean and AC worked well. It just needed some minor things fixed. Nothing in my opinion was a deal breaker, just annoying.
A guest from Missouri City, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 We have rented numerous houses in Lost Colony over the years and this is definitely our least favorite. No garage space for the guest storage, TVs but no cable in upstairs bedrooms, broken shower/tub facet,broken shower door latch, no cover or breeze on deck (blocked by other houses), broken refrigerator shelf, rusty pots/pans, etc. Just too many issues:(
Jan H. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 Great location! Beautiful view! Nice accommodations...but the cooktop and oven did not work. That sort of ruined a good meal we had planned.Trash is not convenient to deliver in car or try to hoist into trash bin.
Bobbi S. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 The views are relatively beautiful and very near to the beach so the sound of the beach is pretty terrific on the deck. The boardwalk is convenient and clean, not crowded if out by 10 or 11am so that is also nice location and crowd wise. We had two issues - the stove and kitchen area had missing lights on the stove and the track light system so near dark in the kitchen and second issue was the AC stopped cooling. Called management and two different repair people out there within the hour - super nice, quick and efficient to repair as best possible. The unit itself is comfortable although the bedding and mattress' are worn and need replacing as does the washing machine - perhaps a good cleaning but sand never cleans. The kitchen is not stocked well at all! Bring basic spices, foil, trash bags and so on - if you need it bring it. Kitchen ware ok at best, fridge is solid and cools extremely well. Door facing the ocean sticks, not surprised. Overall i would rent this again with caveats on what i would bring as the location is very nice and worth the inconveniences.
Caitlyn P. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 I rented this beach house for my best friends Bachelorette party and I must say it was amazing! Gorgeous view of the ocean, super clean and updated inside, everything we could have needed cooking wise, and enough beds for the crew!The beach access was right in front of the house and there were no cars in site - it felt like we had our own private getaway.We will DEFINITELY be back!Thank you!
Marlyn G. from Vernalillo, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014 The house was just perfect and direct access to the beach is a real gift. Only thing lacking were kitchen items for cooking, such as utensils and pans. It was delightful. Thank you
Toni M. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 This was a great house with even better view! Close and I mean close to the pool. Master bedroom and bath are awesome! We had 6 people stay for a birthday surprise and it was a great success. Everything had been recently updated and the porch was the local hang out spot!
LIndsay K. from Itasca, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 It's a great house to rent. Location is perfect, you can see the water and beach clearly, have a great view of the pool and is the closest house to the boardwalk entrance. This is the 2nd time we've used this house and it was great and met all our expectations once again. If you have children it's great, the boardwalk is short and only a few steps to the entrance and to the pool.
Gilda b. from San Angelo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 First of all the property location is perfect,really enjoyed the view and loved that the boardwalk to the beach was a few steps away. The house sleeps 9 guest because of the pull out couch but that couch matress was worn,stained and very uncomfortable. We were not able to find linens for it and when I found a comforter it was dirty and stained. It was also a disappointment when the house in front of us and the house to the side had construction going on which made the experience less enjoyable. It would have been nice to have a broom available to sweep the sand brought in from the beach and washer and dryer need to be replaced. People should also know that the garage space is not available for the guest so it made the parking a little hard, the bedroom closets are being used as storage so you really don't have room for your luggage. There is only one bathroom with counter space so it made it difficult in a family full of girls. On the up side I would rent this house again but only if we had less then 9 people maybe 5 people to be totally comfortable. On the up side when we had a problem with the dryer, maintence was there quickly and repaired the problem. The management staff was very friendly and professional. The location of the property was the best part of this rental, it would have been perfect with some minor adjustments.
Jamie S. from TX, 78681 recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 We had a wonderful Easter weekend. The view from the masterbed room is incredible! The kids had fun going from the condo to the beach and the walk was so close to the beach. Incredible weekend and we all agreed, it will be a new tradition. Only downhill side, was the fresh paint smell bothered my pregnant daughter, but that was due to the recent remodel.
A guest from San antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We really enjoyed our time at Lost Colony. The access to the beach is perfect, and the condo is great. We comfortably slept 5, and could have fit more. Won't stay anywhere else in the future!
Leslie G. from Rosenbery, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 We have been vacationing in Port A for the past 6 summers, always staying in the same great condo. We came to Lost Colony this time because there were 10 of us and wanted to all be together. We had a fantastic time! The house was clean, the air conditioning was great - and cooled the whole house - we were steps away from the beach and pool - we will certainly be back next summer for a longer stay! The rental staff was very nice as well. We had no problems at all! Great time!
Roger G. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 I was very please with the proximity to the beach. It truly is RIGHT THERE and one of the few places in Port A that you can just pick up and walk down there. The unit is well done, if a little tight on the main floor. But the view and proximity is hard to beat. will definately return for another visit.
LIndsay K. from Itasca, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 We had a great time at this house. The location couldn't be better, The view couldn't be better! There were 9 of us and we all slept comfortably. Cleanliness was great too. My one and only complaint is the deck chairs, there were 3 chairs outside and 2 were broke. Called 2 times to get new ones and never got them. So I would suggest bringing your own chairs to sit outside. But honestly other than that it was wonderful. We'll be coming back for sure!
A guest from Houston, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Paint front steps to doorPaint garage doors (rusty)Front door is corroded Door to patio is very hard to slide openTwo gigantic roaches in kitchen (gross)Doors to rm w queen are bifold doors that do not close properlyAll but one of the patio chairs are rusted thruShower in Master bath is in need of repairSecond shower is tiny and cheap!Lights in kitchen - only two of four lights work. If you tap on them all four work for a minute or so.
A guest from Beaufort, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Great location!! Kitchen very nice and clean as well as the bedrooms. Only drawback was the living room furniture was a bit worn and the outside of the house needs painting.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 So very close to the beach and good view. Next to pool. Seven adults and two children had a great time. Microwave didn't work but we were quickly brought a replacement by property management. Hope to visit again.
Jennifer F. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 The condo had a beautiful view of the boardwalk leading out to the ocean from the back porch. The beach was just steps away and we had it all to ourselves, not like the public access areas where you can't find a spot. Checking in and out was a breeze. Definitely will come back
Michael W. B. from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2013 Our stay was fairly good, I was not told that work was being done on the house next to us, so waking up to hammers was very disappointing , so my wife and daughter weren't able to enjoy the balcony like they should of , " noisy workers" for the price we paid we could of been told about the remodeling been done!!!! The remotes for the tvs in the bedrooms weren't working, very nice house beautiful view of the gulf, perhaps our next visit will be better ...
Jason M. from Roulette, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 We stayed 3 nights during spring break - two familes with 4 kids ranging in age from 7 to 4. The Kids absolutely had a blast. Proximity to beach/surf is awesome, and the water wasn't too cold to play in. Beach and water were clean. The unit was nice, perfect for the stay, only complaint was an odd smell, probably old cigarette smoke mixed with something to tray and mask it. But overall, loved the whole stay. Good fising all around too.Spring break brought the college kids out in force. Some in nearby units with all the normal drinking games, but we didn't notice them at night. This complex is far enough from town that you miss most of the crowds and craziness. Traffic was awful and wrecks were common on the highway headed to town in early evening as the drunk kids left the beach and got ready to go out for the night. Be Careful!
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2012 The property was everything we hoped for. It was clean and well stocked with linens. By far one of the most "convenient" condos we've rented. Most everything was there. A few things to improve. Linens for the sofabed were hidden between pillows in the closet. Took us over an hour to find them. Needs a broom to so can sweep the kitchen without having to pull out a vacuum. The kitchen was billed as "gourmet". Needs a grater and a garlic press.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Great location steps from beach boardwalk,roomy,clean. Nice kitchen. Had a very strong odor like moth balls or bug spray. Maybe had just been sprayed?
Brenda W. from Carl Junction, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 Had a great time, the house is in a good location, a little way from town, but not too far, Nice house, and would stay again!
Peggy P. from Waco, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 Absolutely awesome. Friendly staff, great ocean view, very clean, quiet, relaxing and a great way to get everyone together at the same place.
Margaret L. from Monroe, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Lost Colony. A lot has changed since our first visit 22 years ago and that was in a condo. I liked the proximity to the beach and having a seperate house, not a hi-rise. LC8 deck has a perfect view of the bridge to the beach and it was so relaxing. There were a few minor flaws, like the table umbrella was broke and a broken plastic chair left on the deck, broken towel bar etc but maybe these are things the last tenent didnt report. I reported everything on checkout. I definitely would go again!
Michele S. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 Great access to the beach. Terrific view. Bring bug spray. It's nice being by the pool, but a lot of misquitos in the pool area.
Julie A. from Houston, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 The garage was not available to us, which was an unexpected problem, and it was not clear from the website listing that this would be the case. Otherwise, we loved it.
Al G. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 We had an fabulous time! LC8 exceeded our expectations in all measures. The good news is, my Family is already asking when are we going back?
A guest from Burleson, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 What a great place to stay. We loved how close we were to the beach. We've been coming to this area for the past couple of decades and have stayed in many places. I think we've finally found our home away from home!! Highly recommend this place and we plan on returning and staying in this same place!
Melissa M. from Longmont, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 What a wonderful location in a fantastic setting. The only reason I took one star off was due to miscommunication about our community's gate code, resulting in my husband and myself being locked out of the property on the first night. After getting the correct code, everything went smoothly from there. The location could not have been better and the house was just as lovely as shown in the pictures. Thank you for a great experience, we will be back for many more relaxing vacations!
A guest from New Braunfels, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in September, 2011 Wonderful property and great property management company. Very helpful and responsive to any needs or questions we had. We will be returning next year!
Craig P. from Rowlett, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2011 Our Party of three stayed 5 days in Sept.We were 10 paces from the boardwalk which lead right to the beach. We wanted to bring our dogs but no pets were allowed. Seemed like everyone else staying here brought their dog.Hmm.Overall I would give it 5 on your scale of 5. I would only suggest that railings be put on the stairways as my 78 year old father had a hard time with that.
A guest from Texas City, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The inside of property had a bad smell. It smelled like roach spray or wet wood. After our first night stay the next morning I found roach droppings on the kitchen counter and then saw the huge roach! The roach was sick but that was one too many for me.
A guest from Keller, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 This was our second stay in the Ocean Lullaby. You don't pay the premium for beach front, but the house has a great view and it practically is on the beach! The boardwalk is right off the back door so the beach seems close (and here's a secret, the people who have beach front at Lost Colony, have to come over to the boardwalk to get to the beach so you've got them beat). It is a great house for four adults or a family with multiple children. My only warning would be that if you are planning on sleeping 6 in the house (like we did) the sofa bed is a bit worn (although my kids didn't complain) and might not be comfortable for adults.
Karen B. from Austin, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 This place was really nice. The only down side was the "bedroom" with the pullout couch. It might be ok for a child, but for adults it was totally uncomfortable. Luckily there was an air mattress in the closet and that's what we ended up using. For close to $500/night, I had higher expectations.
gayle p. from oklahoma city, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 We used to own the exact unit (LC8) we stayed in. We found it to be very updated and nice. Of course, we will come again!!
Chris B. from Frisco, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 We stayed for the long Memorial Day weekend in 2011. I?m usually doubtful of rental condo pictures posted online. They can be deceiving to say the least. However the pictures posted for this condo are right on the money. The view of the ocean from the deck is great. The sounds of the surf while eating dinner on the patio are priceless. We loved the artificial wood deck, no splinters to be found. Plenty of deck chairs although a few are rusting and might need to be replaced with plastic. Inside the condo it is decorated with high end appliances and fixtures. The pictures and nick knacks on the walls make you feel right at home. The large master bedroom has a comfortable bed and a good sized bathroom. I can?t speak to the guest room since I didn?t go in there but I heard no complaints from those that did. Both bedrooms are upstairs and the guest room has a separate small bathroom. The kitchen is large and open to the eating area and living room. The third ?guest room? was more of an office with a pullout sofa but it worked perfectly as a kids? playroom. There were a few broken items, a drawer in the fridge, a chair on the deck, and the WIFI didn?t work. Kitchen utensils were sparse if you like to cook but all the basics were there. The only major cooking items missing were grilling tools. Other than those small complaints it was a perfect condo that I would not hesitate to stay in again. The management company was also very helpful and answered all my questions. Checking in was quick and checking out was quicker. Unfortunately their offices are located about 10 minutes away from the condo so checking out requires driving in the wrong direction if you are headed back to Corpus. That is a small price to pay for not being too close to town. Thanks!
Shari K. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 Loved this house and will stay many more timesJust need working tv remote in master bedroomWish my small dog could go here
Lance M. from Gilbert, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in October, 2010 Wonderful location with direct gulf views in several directions. I like the upgraded appliances. Prop mgr and owner were very responsive. Living room TV stopped working a few days into our stay. Owner replaced it same day with a brand new flat screen. Awesome value all the way around.
A guest from Georgetown, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2010 Really enjoyed our stay. Views of beach from upper deck are wonderful. Very convenient to the bech. Great property and plan to return on future trip.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 We loved our stay at Ocean Lullaby! The location was perfect -- so close to the beach. The condo was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We especially loved sitting on the the large deck after dinner enjoying the sounds of the surf and the amazing stars!
A guest from Round Rock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010 We were very happy with our three night stay in Port Aransas at the Lost Colony. The property was clean, had comfortable modern furniture and was well equipped. We cooked all but one meal in the kitchen/ on the grill. We loved the location, which was right on the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
James T. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2010 First of all, the location was great. Super close to the beach and 10 minutes from all the restaraunts The place was mostly clean! But beware of the extra stuff in the closets! No one cleaned them, pretty gross. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was amazing, super nice with new appliances. We mostly cooked and had a great time. One other thing to make note of, the master bathroom is good, nice and big. The secondary bathroom is beyond small. Be prepared, only kids will like taking a shower in there. I suggest all the adults share the shower in the master bathroom. There is a huge deck and loads of fun at night! We stayed at Lost Colony #8.
A guest from Prescott, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 The grounds and location were beautiful. We just happened to stay at a time when the seaweed was abundant but it was fun to catch the little crabs that floated on it. We spent alot of time on the deck in the afternoon when the sun had passed overhead. The deck chairs, however, were beginning to deteriorate and need to be replaced. Otherwise, everything was great for celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandson. There are also alot of good eating places in Port Aransas. Thanks for lots of memories!
A guest from Temple, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2010 Great stay. Nice beach. A few problems, though. The dishwasher didn't work, so did the dishes by hand. The skillets were so scratched up I didn't want to use them (teflon in the eggs? yuck) I also noticed the fire detector/alarm had been removed. I hope there is a new system in place.We did enjoy our stay, though. Very relaxing and just the right size for our family of 5. I would stay here again.
