A guest from Austin, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Very nice. One suggestion that would have made it better: This unit needs some room darkening shades in both bedrooms because one bedroom overlooks the pool area which is highly lit up at night for safety; the other bedroom has blinds that do not close adequately.
Jennifer G. from Lubbock, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 The only problem we had was the master sink would not drain unless we unscrewed and removed the plate at the bottom of the sink. We told the maintenance crew on the property but they told us they would have to order a new part. The condo was very clan and well updated. The beach access was very close, although this particular unit did not have a great ocean view. None of the TV remotes worked, and it would have been nice to have a TV in the master bedroom. We booked a 5 night stay and were only provided 1 trash bag which was an inconvenience, although the maintenance man gave me a couple extra for the kitchen when I approached him about the sink.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016 Had a great time, location was perfect. Condo was nice an clean. Will stay here again. Kitchen very well stocked. Pool was great.
A guest from Midland, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 Very nice condo. The distance is not too far from the beach and the pool is just around the corner. Just enough room for my family of 4. A short drive to shopping and restaurants. Check in/check out could not have been easier. All in all a very lovely stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear you enjoyed your condo along with its accessible location to everything. We hope to hear from you again the next time you are in Port Aransas.
A guest from Forney, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 We stayed in Under The Sea for 4 nights. We loved the location the most! Easy access to the beach was a huge plus! The only thing that was disappointin was that the remotes for the TV did not work (they weren't even the right brand) and there was a cable missing for the DVD player. We have a 2 year old, so in the afternoons, it would've been nice to havE been able to turn on a movie to relax. Other than that, our stay was everything we hoped it would be and more!
Robert H. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 Our stay was very enjoyable. The condo was updated and very clean and the overall condo complex was kept in excellent condition - The trash cans were emptied every day, the BBQ grills cleaned out, and the pool was crystal clear. Our kids enjoyed the playscape and the walk across the boardwalk to the beach was both beautiful and an easy two minutes.
Wendy M. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 This place was nicely updated with comfy beds and plenty of room. We loved sitting out on the patio watching the sun set over the water and walking down to the ocean at night to feel the cool waves on our feet. Overall a great little place.
Stephen S. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 I was pleasantly surprised with the condo (2BR 2BTH). It was nicely updated and very clean. My family and I went on the Memorial Day Weekend, and the pool was never crowded. It had easy access to the beach, and the grounds were were nicely kept. I would definitely stay here again.
Maria G. from Houston, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Went with a group of 5 lady's. Plenty of space for sleeping, dining and relaxing. I have stayed at Beachhead several times. The over all location is great. Easy access to the beach via the boardwalk. Short walk to the Sandfest.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 The unit was clean and nice. And being near town with a direct boardwalk to the beach is the big selling point. Also, the pool is very well kept and better than most of the condo pools in that area. However, don't plan on cooking if you rent this unit. There are very few usable cooking tools in the kitchen.
Dianne A. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 Our family has stayed at the Beachhead many times over the years and we always like it. The units have been nicely updated since our last stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend!
helga s. from san antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Everything was as expected except for the Gulf view. I thought we would have a full view but only had a partical view from the far right on the balcony.
Andrea R. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 Our Condo was upgraded and very clean. Loved our view from the balcony, beach was very close and the walkway there was very nice.
Reviewed by: Susan E. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We recently spent 3 days with our 2 granddaughters at Beachead. Under the Sea #405 was a treat. Everything was updated, clean, well maintained, well managed and well stocked with everything needed to make our stay stress free. Perfect location with lots of amenities and quick access to beach and town, yet still very private. We have moved this unit to the top of our list for future visits.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 Aside from it costing more than I'd like, everything was great! It's a shame the condo didn't have the view I thought it did but that's the only thing to nit-pick.
A guest from Alpena, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in February, 2014 The condo was very well equipped and comfortable. Just wish the weather was better but that's not a guarantee, right? :)
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes Glad you enjoyed your stay and next time we'll order up some better weather for you! Port A Escapes
Mateo R. from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Our family rented two condos from PAE for 2 days in Nov. The condos and the stay and the weather was really great. We know that the property company owns several condo properties down there so it may be hard for them to know what each specific room has as far as furnishings. When we called to see if specific rooms have specific items the staff did not know so it was basically a **** shoot if a room had a iron, hair dryer or a slow cooker ect or not. As customers we need to know what to bring. In my opinion a very simple solution would be to audit each room create an MS Excel worksheet mark off the items that each room has so it can be easily searched by room number with ease. Nice condos!
Ana M. from Garland, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 This was the best vacation. The place was outstanding. The trail to beach was convenient. The rooms were great. We loved hanging out at the pool. We loved going to the beach. The nearby restaurant Moby Dicks is a great place to eat. Everything was great. Would love to come again.
James F. from big spring, texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 The property was great but management was a little rude and snoody. My daughters and I were swming in the pool five minutes after the pool closed we were asked to leave and the manager followed us down to the park area and watched us for At least 10 minutes. I felt like a child that was being disobedient. Not a way I want to feel while enjoying my vacation and amenities I paid for. Other than that experience the room and views were amazing.
Great unit. Nice updates, view,& family get-away. Need new couch.
A guest from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 This is a lovely unit. We arrived late Friday ans noticed the floors were very sandy. We called the management company the next morning and they sent cleaning staff right away. Very nice updates, nice private balcony view, pool is very clean and never crowded. Would rent this unit again. Now, for the negative: the couch in this unit is awful- you can't sit in it without it sinking all the way down above your knees. Also, there are no kitchen utensils to speak off- a few wooden spoons and a potato masher- that's it! So, cooking was a challenge. It would be nice to have a TV in the master bedroom.
A guest from Cypress, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 The condo was surprisingly comfortable, and had plenty of additional beds that we weren't expecting. The kitchen was clean and had plenty of clean utensils and plates. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the access to the pool. The internet didn't work very well at all, which was a shame. And we found the keys they provided to not work very well with the front door lock ... and it was annoying to struggle to lock the door each time we left the condo. Other than that, this was a pleasant stay!
Jackie W. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 We liked the condo, the king bed was very comfortable, and the trundle beds came in handy. The decor was updated and cheerful. Would have liked more of a view. The beach and water had a lot of seaweed, that was our only downside.
Jasmine B. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 This place was amazing and a great fit for my husband and kids. The condo was beautiful and had a great layout. I wish I would have taken more plasticware to not have to wash so many dishes but that was just something I did not think of. I think we will do it again next year!
A guest from Frederic, WI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 30 days in February, 2013 We love Port A, and Beachhead is a great location(great ocean view). This is the second unit we have stayed in, and when staying a month, the furnishings leave a lot to be desired.The bathrooms had been remodeled beautifully, but there was no drawer in the vanity or a medicine cabinet to keep the many toiletries one needs during a month. The towels were excellent.The couch was unusable--if you sat down, you were lucky to get up again. Poor mattresses(the twin beds were too short for adult male).There was something with the wooden floors--feet always got dirty--would have to wash bottoms of feet after walking on it(we didn't want to wear shoes and bring in sand).Old tv(not great picture).i know it's up to individual owners to replace furnishings, but it's too bad the rental office can't set some standards. We don't expect luxury, just comfortable!
Daren O. from Little Elm, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012 This was our first experience with Port Aransas Escapes and I have to say, it was a great one. The Condo was very nice and clean and was very close to shops, dinning, and grocery store. The grounds are well kept with a playground and direct beach access making it much very easy for our family to plan our day. The property was quiet and intimate and just what we were looking for.
Terry F. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 It took two phone calls to finally get someone to send an email confirmation of the reservation. We usually stay at the beach-front Sand Piper so we were a little disappointed at the obstructed view of the Ocean and discouraged by the longer walk to the beach. Otherwise, unit 405BH was recently renovated with modern anemities which make cooking in the kitchen a pleasure.
Susan H. from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 Great stay. The staff was very helpful. The only complaint was that the room had three different remotes for the TV and none of them worked. We had to program one of them for the TV.
Tina W. from Oklahoma City, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 We had a great time and we will be back.One suggestion, it would be helpful to have a little information in the condo as to where to find things to do and places to eat on the island.
Wendy N. from Leander, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 We had a wonderful experience as first time vacationers to the coast!! Perfect location so close to the beach!! Very family friendly with a great little park in the center. The kids can easily stayed entertained. Loved our two bedroom condo with everything you need its like a home awat from home. Can't wait to go back, next time maybe without the kids!! I will definitely stay with them again!
Andy c. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 I think that the condo is great for a family or even 2 families. It was an easy walk to the beach, and there were multiple bbq pits available for use.
Beverly R. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We had a really good time and the condo was delightful except the bed situation and it got remedied by the staff. We enjoyed our stay and would return again.
Delia K. from Keller, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 We have stayed here before and it was just as great as last time. The place was clean and very nicely decorated. The only problem we had was that last time the DVD didn't work and this time we couldn't get the wifi to work but all in all it was very nice.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 You might try posting a sign with the phone # to have cars towed. We had a car behind us for 30 min at 830 at night and didn't know who to call.
Mark L. from Cedar Park, TX. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 Very pleasant and friendly location. The only thing lacking was a TV in the master bedroom, otherwise it was a great stay in Port A.
Robert L. from Goldthwaite, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 The unit's general condition was ok. The AC unit drain tube clogged and leaked but staff did an excellent job of responding and getting it fixed. The only improvement would be updating the unit we rented and cleaning the carpets. The carpet needed some attention. Great location, good value, nice pool, lawns and bbq pits, can walk to the beach. Always enjoy our stay at the Beachhead. Property management reps were very helpfull. Hope to be back soon.
MARY A. A. from STATEN ISLAND, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 This location is perfect! It's at the Gulf and very conveniently located ~ near shops and restaurants. The Unit itself was very well maintained and comfortable. Furnishings looked as thought they had been recently added, and there was a freshness to the if it had been aired out frequently, and cared for with TLC! This is a very well maintained property, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a hassle-free vacation at the Gulf.My only criticism: the front door doornob was loose and hard to manage. A replacement lock is in order. The deadbolt lock was very easy to lock from the inside, but not able to be locked with a key from the outside. I prefer double security, so these locks could definitely be looked at.
Consuelo R. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 What I dislike about Beachhead is the damage waiver that you charge. You are charging everyone for the damages one in 10 people may cause. Because of this fee I may not be back and I am not sure I would recommend Beachhead.
Steve G. from Cedar park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2011 I took a group of people to stay in a couple of these condos, and we all had a great time. The walk to the beach is very easy (although we weren't carrying anything). We were all adults, but I could see this being great for a small family as well.
tan t. from austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 Beachhead condominiums is a nice place for Port Aransas vacation. We rented 2 condos, stay at 405, and 406. VERY please with 406. The kitchen has been recently renovated and I love the style. Unit 405 on the other hand was very outdated and had a distinct old smell to it. I had a great time either way. The pool is just a regular pool but I had lots of fun there. I wished the volleyball court was filled with sand instead of shells. The picnic tables and outdoor grills were nice. Beach access is nice too. Overall I highly recommend this place. Please management, could you replace the shells and rocks on the volleyball court to soft sand. Thanks!
Linda R. from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 It takes the fridge 24hrs for temp changes to take affect so be prepared you food and drinks to be warm until the end of the next day, this should be done by the property since they know you are coming. We stayed here last same number of people year paid less for a two bedroom(1 queen/2 twins) condo was large and was right at beach entrance, this time reserved two bedroom(3 queens) condo was much much smaller for the price we paid, was told it was close to the beach entrance it we were three buildings away. First time we stayed there were told one price when we got were charged another, this time was told total was $X and reservation was $X got receipt by email 24hr later reservation was over by $50 and total was over by +$200. Called to get this correct and was told I had to call the next which I did and thankfully was fixed received 2nd email 24hr later showing correct amount. However, at the time of check (2 empolyees in office one at desk and one at a computer)office tried to charge the incorrect amount I informed them that they were incorrect and it wasn't until I pointed that out did the employee at the computer say that it was the incorrect amount that they just forgot to print/pull the correct information. From now on I will be choosing portaescapes or beachhead condo for our vacation rentals.
Terry J. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2010 This is second year I have taken my daughter and my two grandsons (ages 9 & 6) to Port A. They actually requested to return this year. We played in the surf w/skim boards, tubes, etc. Flew kites, built sand castles and looked for shells. Restaurants are close and good food. We especially liked the Brewing Company pizza place. Saw beautiful sunset from Virginia's by the Bay. The Coldwell Banker people we dealt with were wonderful and so very helpful. Condo was large enough for us all and couldn't have asked for a better location. My 6 year old grandson says that the excitement of seeing your condo for the first time and getting a feel for the place is one of his favorite things. You passed his test. See you all at Port A next year!
Rolando C. from Rockwall, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2010 We are very happy with the overall experience. I just wish that the person that checked us in was a little more accomodating. We arrived a little bit early - 3:00pm and she told us that we can't check in until 4:00. She then called at around 3:30 to tell us we can now check in. It was a little irritating after an 8 hour drive. The room was clean but had some crickets in the bedroom & bathrooms and trash from our room was never picked up.
Sue P. from Pflugerville, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2010 Great experience. Great location. Helpful staff. When our toaster was broken, they had a replacement within the hour.We will definitely go back!
Johnny H. from Pipe Creek, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2010 Room 405 was old and horrible, ac did not work, very few dishes, no view what so ever.Room 406 was great awesome, everything was new 405 sucks!
A guest from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 Beachhead Condo's were extremely quiet, and so close to the beach. It was exactly what I needed to unwind after a lot of stress this past year! I will be booking again! The only problem I experienced was that the kitchen floor was extremely sticky, and I had to buy cleaner and mop it thoroughly. Also, Under the Sea could do with an "updating" as fare as the decor is concerned. Despite those two issues, the peace and quiet made the stay worth the money!
A guest from Yokum, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 Lorna was extremely helpful in making the reservations and handling us with the weather issues. We had problem with our sink in room 407 but they responded and fixed it. Overall we were very pleased with the property and stay.
We visited Port Aransas with our friends. The Beachead condo's are located close to the beach and are well furnished. The Gulfvi
A guest from Sugar Land, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 Great location. We were on the 2nd floor and when it rained on saturday, there was no covered walkway to reach our condo. We all got wet.
