Great Place to Stay in Port A
James H. from McKinney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016 Our family found the facility well maintained and in an ideal location. Anchors Away 503BH was clean and in good condition. Rooms were spacious, and the very wide veranda provided a stunning view of each day's sunrise. The Port A app made checking in and out a breeze.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear you enjoyed your condo along with its view. Give us a call when you are ready to come back to Port A.
Don B. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 Overall it was great, the only issue I would bring up is wi-fi reliability, it did not seem consistent throughout the property.
A guest from Wheelock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 Nice quiet place. Really enjoyed the balcony and the boardwalk to the beach. The condo was clean and comfortable. I will definitely try to stay there again.
Russell W. from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016 Stayed three nights at unit 503 at Beachhead. enjoyed the proximity to the beach and to town. Property was as expected. The unit we stayed in could use a little maintenance with some rust(expect some of course). Door to the balcony needs some repair and maintenance. Overall the unit was clean and met our needs.
A guest from Pearland, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 We've stayed at Beachhead many times when visiting PortA, but the first time in this particular unit (love the convenience of Beachhead with their direct boardwalk access to the beach, hoses and outside shower for getting the sand off everything and boardwalks to everything like the pool and back to your units. This unit was very clean, no carpet. Faces the water in one of the front units and is on the same level as the pool (so you can take the bridge across the unit closest to the pool and straight through to this building -- very convenient). It is however NOT on the top floor, so you can hear footsteps of the people above you. This unit had everything we needed to cook all our meals there, although no storage containers for leftovers (we always bring our own). There's no disposal in the sink, but does have the dishwasher, microwave, electric stove. The layout of the unit worked great for our family of 4 -- 2 twins in the front bedroom with their own bathroom and the master in the back with our own bathroom. Cable and wifi worked great too.
Keith A. from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2016 We've stayed at beachhead condos a number of times and had a great experience every time. Only dislike is no pets policy.
Dephanie C. from Liberty Hill, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 Stayed in unit 503 for over 24+ years! Loved the updates! Gorgeous and so appreciated.Especially enjoyed the tall stools/table combo on the deck for eating lunch and drinking wine. The Beachhead is never a disappointment! Port A has so much to enjoy: UT Science Ctr;bird-watching trails/parks.Ship-watching;dolphin watching boat rides and so much more!
A guest from Utopia, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 OUR CONDO WAS GREAT. NEWLY REMODELED, COMFORTABLE AND VERY CLEAN. THE GROUND WAS VERY WELL MAINTAINED AND ROOMY. THE LARGE POOL WAS NICE AND VERY CLEAN. I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO STAY THERE ON ANY FUTURE VISITS TO THE AREA. I WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. I LOVE THE CONVENIENCE OF BRAUN'S CARTS BUT A LITTLE COSTLY. SKUTTLEBUTT'S BAR & GRILL WAS DELICIOUS.
Veronica G. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 We recently stayed at this property for Spring Break. As adult vacationers, it was important to us to have easy beach access, great relaxing views and full kitchen/bbq amenities. The rental is well maintained. There was four of us and we were comfortable. I would recommend this unit. The property managers, Port A Escapes for amazing to work with. Harry is now my personal "Escape Artist"!Thanks all!
A guest from Richmond, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 The condo furniture needs to be cleaned or replaced. The bed in master was comfortable and sheets were clean. Our stay started on a Thursday-Monday. By Saturday the roaches appeared ( I guess since food is not in condo at all times.). My husband read guest book and another guest had seen them and maintenance came out and sprayed. We did not call maintenance. When we checked out I told escapes the issue. The lady in office asked if I wanted to speak to manager it may be awhile she was in meeting. I said no but left my cell number and asked for a call. 2 weeks later still waiting. Cockroaches are unacceptable and are disgusting. When I arrived home I put everything on my back porch and went through it to make sure I didn't bring any home with me. Never again will I stay at Beach Head. Sad we've stayed there quite a few times.
Darryl S. from Midway, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 We stayed in the same condo three years ago and were a little disappointed this time around. We noticed roaches in the kitchen every day of our stay, the handle in the children's bathroom sink was broken so they had no cold water, the frame around the door in the master bedroom was broken, there was a sewer-like smell in the master bath throughout our stay, and some of the glasses were cracked and not useable. The water went out due to a broken line, and that was fixed within a couple of hours; however the outdoor shower was out the remainder of the day. Also, the furniture in the living room is quite more worn than I remember three years ago. I'm sure that is just general wear, but don't remember the recliner being so unstable before.The condo has a great view and more chairs were added on the outside which was nice.We hope that the maintenance issues will be resolved. We would like to return sometime in the future if improvements are made.
A guest from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 This rental was in a great location in town, had a wonderful balcony and plenty of indoor space being a two bedroom, two bath. It would have been helpful to have better signage from the road and also to have hand soap in the unit, even if it was a very small bar rather than two make-up remover toilettes.
A guest from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 The unit was very clean upon arrival. We had a great stay. The unit was close to the boardwalk, pool, and playground. There are only a few negatives about our stay. The island had gotten a lot of rain prior to us arriving. The designated parking area for the unit was under water about 6-8 inches and the rental people were not helpful in trying to find a better area to park for our stay. No fault to the rental company or unit, but the playground was also well under water, so my 2 and 5 year old were not able to take advantage of that feature. In past we have stayed at condos/beach homes that had a washer and dryer and I really did miss that feature in this condo. The view was very nice and the unit was very quiet and private. The pool was an added bonus and we enjoyed it after a long day at the beach one day. We were the only ones there and enjoyed the view the pool had to offer as well.
lea s. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 We are a family of 5. 3 kids. We LOVED this condo. The location was perfect for nightlife and also the beach. This complex was very clean with all the amenities. The condo was clean, with great appliances and furniture. I loved sitting on the back porch and seeing the ocean over the dunes. Will try and make it back for sure!
Gabriela F. from Chicago, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 We really had a great time in Port A. What a terrific little town with friendly folks and expansive beaches. The bird watching was great. In terms of the condo itself, the porch was a total treat, the place was big enough for three and everything worked well. I do think it would be nice to just include the most basic condiments so that people don't have to buy a bunch of groceries they are forced to leave behind. Just some salt and some oil and same coffee filters would be a nice gesture. Also the customer service at the key pickup spot was a bit lacking. We couldn't find the place initially and getting any kind of directions over the phone turned out to be impossible. But other than that we really loved the place once we were in it.
A guest from Round Rock, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 We had a wonderful stay. We stayed in another unit in Beachhead a few years ago and liked this unit much better. It has lots of nice updates (master shower, kitchen). The only thing we didn't like was the slow wireless/internet speed.Overall this is a great place to stay--private boardwalk with short walk to the beach and a great view. I already miss the sound of the waves!!
Becky D. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 We had a wonderful time with some friends! It was a perfect location, beach access was a 3 min walk by a boardwalk. The condo was comfy and clean. We will definitely be going back!
Barbara A. from Wimberley, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 The property was accurately described by the management team. It was very clean and the décor was new. Our girls' trip + Marshall was fun. The only problem was, we needed to stay another day because we didn't have enough beach time, but then, it's never enough.
Patricia B. from Lockhart, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We have stayed at Beachhead most every summer since 1986 or 87. Always a good expierence. The only problem is that the rates have gone up so much that we may need to find another alternative. Master bath shower had no hot water. No garbage disposal.
A guest from Friendswood, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 Great location and beautiful view! Palmilla Golf and Resort very close. A really challenging and fun course to play.
A guest from Guthrie, Oklahoma recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 Stayed at Anchor's Away during the 2014 Sand Festival. The property was clean and comfortable. The only problem we had was the lack of seating for 4 adults. The condo advertises that it sleeps 5 and there are 6 chairs for the dining table, but only a loveseat and one armchair in the living room. We had to bring a patio chair from outside to accommodate seating for all 4 adults. Other than the seating problem, we had a lovely time and would stay in this complex again.
A guest from Schuyler, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 45 days in January, 2014 Spent 6 weeks in Port A to escape the winter weather back home. Second year @ Beachhead Condos. Love the location. Unit was very comfortable, staff was responsive to our needs. We will be back.
Sandy W. from Sutherland Springs, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 We had a wonderful time, despite the rainy cold weather. The condo we stayed in was very comfortable and highly enjoyable. The beds were all very comfortable and we slept great. We will definitely recommend this location and will be returning in the spring. I can't say enough about it! Great! Great! Great!
Edmund C. from Grand Priarie, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 Originally had us staying in 502 but the room smelled of stale cigarette smoke. We were not happy. We got moved to room 503. The room was great and made our stay a happy one. The management was more than helpful in making our stay a comfortable. I can recommend Anchors Away - Clean - close to beach and shopping.
Monica L. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 I really loved this unit. The view was perfect. I liked the updated space with nice furnishings. The only complaint with the unit were the beds. I am not a fan of soft beds, so it hurt my back to sleep on it. I am sure other people like the soft beds, so this is purely personal preference. The other issue I had was the late check-in. There was not an address given for the unit (on any of the paperwork). I had to figure it all out in the dark at 8:30pm. Also, not a fan of the lock boxes. Took us forever to figure out how to open them.
Don C. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Our little excursion was a pleasant and relaxing getaway for our family, just long enough for us to forget the real world for one day. We love the Texas coast, the one thing that could have made it better would be and extra T.V. for the kids in the bedroom to watch while the adults watch and converse in the living area watching adult programs. Next time I'll ask in prior to reservation, other than that great place! We'll be back.
Wayne E. from Lewisville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 My youngest son, three grandsons, and myself spent 3 nights here in November. Everything was great except for the weather and fishing. The condo made it a great weekend for us or it would have been awful. Proximity to the beach and the rest of PA made it great. We will be back.
Aaron Y. from Kerrville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 We only went off of internet reviews and images of condos for rent, and were shocked to find out how great this place is once we checked in. Lovely exterior, great location, and amazingly new and clean interior. Further, we were the closest condo to the beach out of the whole complex and had an ocean view! Great place and will stay again.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 This is a great location for a beach vacation. Everything in the condo was great. Slight problem in the master shower was reported and will hopefully get fixed for the next users.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 This was our first visit to Port Aransas and we will definitely be back! Beachhead was a fantastic place to stay! The only complaints I have are that the wifi never worked for us, there are no TVs in the bedrooms, and that the carpet in the bedrooms is old and stained and needs to be replaced. We would def stay there again though!
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 Beachhead 503 was the best! The remodeled kitchen and baths were beautiful! The high directors chairs on the porch provided the best view of the beach! The recliner was in a perfect spot by the window was so comfy! We are definitely requesting this room next time we visit!
Tamara S. from Austin, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 I have chosen this same unit for two years in a row for its proximity to downtown while still being able to see the water after looking over the dunes. There's nothing fancy about this property, but it has everything you need. The dedicated parking spots are nice, too.
Ken H. from Leander, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 THe coffee pot did not work. Clled the office and the gentlemen I spoke to said it would be replaced. It never was. Also the WiFi didn't work. Between 3 smart phones and One Laptop none of use to hook up to the wifi.
A guest from Brazoria, Tx. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2012 Checked in on Sunday, left Friday. I liked the condo being on the end closest to the beach. It was furnished nice and the four of us had a great time just relaxing. December is a slow time of year so never had to wait at a restaurant for dinner. There were some restaurants closed and only open on weekends but we found plenty open during the week. Will come back again this time of year.
Mary S. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 Our children grew up coming to Beachhead in a family group of friends trip most summers. We sadly watched the property decline as we continued to return to Port Aransas with our children & grandchildren. Last year we were thrilled to see it was finally getting needed attention! Our condo was lovely, the space worked well, & location was great. Unfortunately, the refrigerator was not cooling adequately to keep food cold enough & some spoiled. We ended up having to keep ice in an ice chest for milk, cheese, & lunchmeat. WIFI never worked as advertized & staff kept trying to blame the very early brief rain we had everytime we called for assistance.
Darryl S. from Midway, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We brought our grandchildren for a getaway and quality time. No television, no electronic games. We enjoyed swimming, walks on the beach at night,the pool, bbqing, and playing games. Everyone had a great time. Thank you.
Christina R. from Whichita Falls, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 The only thing that would have made this rental better is supplying towels we only had 4 towels in our room and were told that no daily clean towels would be provided, so the continued use of the washing machine was needed. It would be nice to have the towels supplied again like they were in the past.Thanks,The Roberts' Family
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Location of this unit was great. Beautiful view of the ocean and easy walk to the beach. Unit was great and good size.
Denise N. from Austin, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 The property was perfect size for our family of four. Close proximity to the beach and nice pool a short walk away. Beds were comfortable, kitchen okay (bring your own specialty utensils or cookware). Items to note: this is a second floor property; there is a door leading to outside in the kid's (2nd) bedroom - we just blocked with the dresser.
Sydney K. from Springfield, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 32 days in February, 2012 I had a great experience and look forward to coming next year. Also have two friends who may come also. They will probably be in touch with you.
Rosy H. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 This condo was by far the nicest place we have ever rented in Port A. It has been nicely updated and has every upgrade you would want. The view was fantastic and the location was perfect for us. Our bed was very comfortable and even our bedspread smelled lovely. The gentleman at the office who booked our stay made the process a breeze. All in all, we never want to stay anywhere else.
Guy W. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 We are a family of 4 (children aged 4 & 9). Stayed for 4 x nights in Jul. Booking & check in could not be easier - no hassle, no delay, easy to find. Condo clean and exactly as pictured on the Website. Walk to the beach literally 5 mins - very safe beach, no rip tides and sandy all the way. Local area has plenty of good places to eat. We choose not to do any activities (trips etc) as the kids were so content on the beach. Ease to and from beach meant we could come and go during the day (leaving the chairs etc on the beach), which allowed us to get the kids out of the sun for a while and grab a beer before heading down for sunset and a night walk. In summary our very active kids loved the beach and the sea, and we relaxed more than ever because in terms of parenting this is easy money - loved it!
Beachhead is a starting to be a tradition on the 4th of July....
Roxanne R. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The only thing that needs improvement is a maid service to provide toilet paper, clean towels daily and trash pick up daily with new bags provided.
Suzanne K. from Killeen, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 This was our second visit to Beachhead. This room was by far our favorite. It was very comfortable and welcoming. Can't wait to get back there!
We stayed here with our kids and would definitely stay here again
Reviewed by: Kevin C. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2011 The property was clean and well kept and the few interactions we had with the property management company were professional and met our needs. The only issue we had with the room was the outside door in the 2nd bedroom since that is where our 3 year old slept, but we move the dresser against the door and it was not a problem.
A guest from Halletsville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 We all had a great time staying at Beachhead. Clean condos, very nice staff, and was easy to walk down to the beach or swim at the pool. Very relaxing and can't wait to come back.
mandi m. from college station, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 Our first family vacation since we had our kids, who are now 2 and 4. We were nervous traveling away from familiar places with the girls, but the condo was wonderful. The property was great and we will hopefully be returning next summer.
A guest from Bedford, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2011 Port Aransas is a horrible little fishing village. The beach is dirty brown sand packed down and hard. It is covered with rotting seaweed, jelly fish, broken glass and other trash. The view from the condo is dried brush as far as you can see. No ocean in sight. The locals are rude and apparently not interested in tourist dollars. The police were oppressive to the point that people were referring to the island as a concentration camp.I've been to Destin several times and it is well worth the extra few hour drive. Florida's white, soft sand and blue water are amazing. I'll never go back to Port Aransas.
John M. from Bardstown, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2011 The property was beautiful, clean and the managing staff was very helpful. We were disappointed on arrival to find that the spare bedroom had an outside entrance, as we have young children. Also would have liked high chain locks on the doors so it wasn't as easy for the kids to exit the condo.
Mark R. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2010 This week at the Beachhead was actually purchased as a gift for us by a dear friend of ours. They felt we were in much need of some down time. We stayed the first week of January so we're sure it was quieter than summer high time but it's just whatbwe needed. It was wonderful, quiet, and peaceful. Please note: We are actually from Houston not Austin like it says below.
Glenda F. from Willow Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2010 Our first visit to the Beachhead was 11/77. A favorite escape place for us for many years. The renovation is great - our condo had a very special touch. Thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving Holiday.
A guest from Goliad, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2010 Port A Escapes was great to work with. The only thing we were disappointed in was the veiw of the dunes - we would have liked to see more water from the balcany. The condo was very nicely decorated and comfortable. Location was in town and convenient to everything we wanted to do. Would have liked to have had tv's in both bedrooms. This property may have a mold problem that needs to be checked out. Overall, the condo and our stay was very nice.
Jennifer H. from Waco, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 I absolutely loved "Anchors Away" - it was neat and tidy and clean, and had plenty of room for my sister and I and our children. It was close enough to the beach that we didn't have to drive - we were able to carry our chairs, canopy and cooler down the boardwalk to the beach. The balcony was very nice - we had a picnic lunch out there and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean. I would definitely stay here again, and I would definitely recommend it to anybody! The value for the price was excellent!
A guest from Dell City, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 We had a wonderful, peaceful, fun and memorable vacation at Beach Head condos. Beautiful view. no problems what so ever
Tammy P. from Pottsboro, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 My children and I stayed in this condo for 3 days and had no issues whatsoever. The condo is tastefully furnished, clean and the location is great! Probably the only suggestions I have are a larger skillet and more trash bags; however, the absence of these items did not detract from our overall enjoyment of this property at all. I highly recommend this property and look forward to booking it again for future stays.
Joseph S. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 My family and I took an early summer vacation at Port A on June 10. We stayed at Beach Head 503BH. This condo is very nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable. It appears to have recently been painted and the flooring and carpets look new. For a family or two couples, it is ideal. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms convenient and well-designed. The condo has a queen size bed in the master bedroom and two twins in the second bedroom. There is an airbed for additional guests and a couch (not a hide-a-bed!). The parking spoace is close to the unit and very wide. This unit is on the second floor and has a balcony which is great for enjoying the view of the ocean. Highly recommended.
William B. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2010 The facilities and rental property were awesome. My only regret was that there was nowhere to wash and dry your towels.
