Mildew-infested condo! A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 We selected 303BH because it had an unobstructed gulf view. This condo should never have been rented out! It was damp and smelled so overwhelmingly of mildew that our clothes absorbed the smell and I got a raging headache. The refrigerator had mildew spots around the door seal. The shower curtains also had mildew. The furniture and kitchen cabinets were all dark, who knows where else it was growing! The TV and wireless internet did not work. And, by the way, the cabinet doors opened toward the wall rather than toward the kitchen. The owners clearly never cared about their property. Since we had arrived on a Friday night after the office was closed, we had to sleep there and we called the office the next morning. They sent someone over with a bottle of Febreze. Everyone we talked to responded they just worked there, couldn't do anything and that there were no managers in the office on weekends. One staff did call a manager, at our request. She agreed to move us to another condo that was further back from the beach, but would not give us a discount or refund. The second condo (203BH) was clean and nicely decorated, we decided to just enjoy the rest if our getaway weekend. After we returned home, my husband called the manager of Port Aransas Escapes, the rental company. She said she does not visit the properties. This company's staff failed at every level, from management down to cleaning staff. Do not give this company your money!
Mildew Mold Beach rental A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 The place smelled so bad of mildew and mold that I can't believe they can even rent this place. When I asked to move they said nothing else available and didn't offer any discount either
Nightmare on the beach A guest from Ore City, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 Smelled of mildew and insecticide. Probably due to having carpet in a very humid area. We did not end up staying the night it was so horrible and very expensive. The fridge was rusted and leaked. Bathrooms looked like a motel 6 type, very cheap and run down. I cannot believe Port A Escapes charged over $300 a night to stay there. It was close to the beach so we used it as a locker. The pics on website were misleading, vollyball court had weeds going in it, playground looked hazardous. My wife cried when we walked in as I tried to tell her it wasn't that bad, knowing it was a nightmare. I can still smell it now! Stay away from this place!
Good Price for the convenience John M. from Richards, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 I will start off by saying that we came to the beach with the intention of just sleeping in the condo not spending all of our time there.Overall the condo served us well, it was clean, convenient and the AC worked good.As soon as we stepped in the mold smell kicked us in the face, we instantly wiped all the wood furniture down to reduce the smell. Theres not a trash can or bags in the kitchen, the chairs on the porch saw their last summer last year, and the king size bed seemed a little short. WE will come again, just think a few things should be taken care of.
Winter in Port A A guest from Grinnell, IA recommends this property.
Stayed for 72 days in February, 2015 After years of wintering in our motorhome, we suddenly found ourselves in need of a condo for our Port A stay. Port A Escapes directed us to Beachhead where we have stayed for the past 2 winters. There are a variety of styles and upgrades within the resort as each owner is responsible for their unit. Unit 303 was clean & comfy with a beautiful view of the Gulf. We met a number of really nice folks who regularly winter there. The staff, led by Cynthia is friendly and extremely helpful. We will be returning to Beachhead again in 2016.
So-so A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 The unit had a pretty strong smell in it, almost like diesel, the kitchen was a bit beat up, and there were roaches.
Great View A guest from austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014 The condo is very spacious and well appointed. It has everything for a perfect stay. The complex is quiet and the view from the balcony is unbeatable. The only negative is the smell of creosote from the , which is common in many older properties in Port A that used creosote treated wood as their foundations.
RETURN EVERY YEAR Delia K. from Keller, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 We always have a really nice time at Beachhead. The wifi didn't work and we have had that problem in the past. the cabinet doors were backwards. Opening toward the walls instead of against it which is kinda weird and awkward. Should be an easy fix. Hopefully someone will. the microwave was pretty lame but overall the condo was clean and offered the amenities that I was looking for. when I called the reservationist, she was kinda rude both times. almost refusing to help me and referring me to the website when all I needed was a quick question to ask both times.
a 4th of july get away Dolores C. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 The property was very clean, our condo #303 at beachhead was very comfortable very close to the beach, the only draw back couldnt take our shitshu with us had to leave him behind, when we would see others walking with dogs on the premises..oh well..would recommend this property to family and friends
Great stay Rick L. from Arlington, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 Great stay over all. It was very relaxing to take a short vacation,in Port Aransas, just after Christmas. The condo was spacious a bit outdated but more than adequate. The only downside is, we would have liked to stay longer.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We appreciate your time to write the review! Hope to see you again soon. Port A Escapes
Paying for the Beach Kristina P. from Temple, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 Had roaches. One fell in my hair while I was showering the first morning we stayed. It was terrifiying and set the tone for the rest of the stay because anxiety of roaches. Took home flying big with is in our suitcase. Appliances were out dated and rust/water damage to fridge and microwave. Nice amount of space and fit 4 comfortably. Awesome beav h access. But will never stay there again. Bedding was yuckying but towels were bright white. Onky 2 face towels for 4 people. I recommend finding somewhere else to stay!
great beach getaway Larry B. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 nice facility close to beach great beach access. Only drawbacks were slow sink in the bathroom and not wheelchair friendly.
Stay somewhere else A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 This unit is old and run-down. The refrigerator and microwave were both rusted, the unit had an unpleasant odor, the door to the balcony would not stay closed (we had to put the couch in front of it to keep it closed). We really didn't want to sleep in the beds or sit on the furniture. The floor was uneven and creaky. We would recommend staying somewhere else. We have been going to Port Aransas for years and all of the places we've stayed before were MUCH nicer and comparable in price.
Port A Escapes A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 We had a great time as we have stayed at Beach Head many times. I want to commend the new owners for providing us an in promised deal a former employee made. Class act!! Hopefully we can strike a similar deal in the future;)
Great location Jacob L. from SA, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 The condo we stayed at was a bit older. The AC had a hard time keeping up one of the really humid nights. The wifi was out all weekend. That being said, The location was marvelous. We spent the majority of our time on the beach and grilling outside. The Condo's location and beach access allowed our family to have a blast. The pool was great too.
Clean but noisy A guest from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 At first we were very pleased with the property, noticing its cleanliness. But when neighbors moved in upstairs, we noticed how easily we could hear there every movement, walking, jumping, doors closing. Therefore the 3 star rating on general condition. Also, I felt that the check in process was confusing : we showed up at the property and were told rather rudely that we had to go to the main office to check in. Bottom line, I will recommend it to others with lots of warnings.
Great location and great price for a group Elizabeth S. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 I've been staying at Beachhead for 20 years and it hasn't changed a bit. I mean that in the best way. The condos are spacious and delightfully kitschy, the grounds feature grills, picnic tables, horseshoe, etc., and the large pool and proximity to the beach is great. Unit 303 doesn't have the most modern amenities (no wifi) but it's in a good location with views of the dunes and sea. The one complaint I have about Beachhead is that there is minimal-to-no front desk service now that Port A Escapes manages rentals. Otherwise, I highly recommend this condo.
Great location, great bedrooms....badly needing updates!! A guest from San Antonio, Texas does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Glad to find a great location at fair price at the last minute. The 2 full baths is a definite plus!! This unit needs renovating and updates! Walk in and very musty smell. Only one small tv in living room. Slow drain in bath, rusty looking fridge and micro. While very clean, a big visual turn off. Kitchen needs more wares. S/P shakers were empty. Bedding all musty. The pool area is fabulous but I guess they only expect 5 people as this was about how many loungers there are. We did have to kill a very big roach. Please remodel, renovate and resupply. I will pay the upgrade price!!! The location is excellent. I would not come back to this particular unit. I hope Beach Head has remodeled units 'cause location is fantastic and so is the pool area. Maybe a better and cleaned grill also. We did grill but used new grill racks. I guess for the price, it was a fair stay.
Beachhead Great-Management Company Not So Great A guest from Rushville, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 49 days in February, 2013 Love Beachhead and this was our ninth year at the complex. We feel that Winter Texans have not been dealt with in a fair and courteous manner by the management company. Many of we returning guests feel that Winter Texans are not valued by the management company. Condos are being rented out from under some while they are still in residence with no notification.
Winter Beach Trip A guest from S A, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012 The weekend we were in Port A was a cold, windy one but the views from the rental property were unimpeded by the weather. The unit was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
Our first beach get-a-way Tiffany T. from Omaha, NE recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 This unit was showing its age but can't beat the location. Had a wonderful time and will be back!! :) Port Aransas was great and the Kahootz Dolphin Boat ride was fantastic!!
Awesome Mini Vacation Sonia O. from New Braunfels, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 We had an amazing stay, our condo was right upfront and we had a nice ocean view. I brought my mother, husband, son and grandson...3 generations and we had a wonderful time. The beach is just a short 3 minutes walk, and there is outdoor showers to clean off sand and the pool was well kept, large and clean. The only small downside was that we brought our stuff to play tennis but the tennis courts were not not playable, no enclosure or nets. But we still had a great time.
Enjoyed our stay Baron V. from Round Rock, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 My family and I had a great time at the Beachhead Condominiums. Location was great, pool was clean and it was located in a section of the island that was legal for you to drive a golf cart. We will be going back!
Great time, great place, and glad I stayed there. Chris C. from Lampassas, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 The room was nice. It was in a good location. Overall I was very happy with everything.
Summer Vacation A guest from Smithville, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 Our group had a wonderful time. The only suggestion I have is to replace the locks in the doors-they are very old and some do not work. We have been coming to Beachhead for over 25 years and were very glad to see the improvements that have been made within the last 5 years. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
Family time Carl J. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 The condos were great we had a ton of fun. This property is great for young and old alike. Clean, on the beach and quite.
Port A trip Greg N. from Austin, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 We had a great time in this rental. The double twin beds were a little small, but I knew that going in. Nice clean place.
Great location! A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 You cannot beat the location! Everything in the condo was fine,but the bathrooms are pretty tiny. Only issue we had was not getting a late checkout when requested because they had a lot of condos to clean. I felt it would have been easy to do mine later in the day and give us the 2 extra hrs. When we turned our key in, they wanted us to stay another night for a discounted rate. Why couldn't we get late checkout, then?
FUMC Ladies Retreat at Beachhead Condos Erika B. from Goliad, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2012 We could not have picked a more perfect location/facility for our 5th annual Ladies Retreat...
Great Weekend Stay Deborah T. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2011 We had a fabulous view of the dunes and water. The condo was immaculate. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the bathrooms had extra towels. My family couldn't have been happier at a 5-star hotel. I fact the condo was by far better.
Vacation wih the Sisters Anne C. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011 The easiest, best experience I have ever encountered. Great vacation Condo ,loved it and will definately come back.
Great Location!!! Loved the beach house! Melanie K. from Toronto, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 Yes, I would stay here again, but there were a few things I'd hope to be different.First, the cable was not hooked up and in fact had a broken connection. The building management acted very fast and repaired it so we were able to get a few channels - it rained a full day while we were there :|The wifi signal was very weak and required a login/password that was very different from what was posted on the reference sheet in the kitchen. I normally don't bring work to the beach, but had to get some deliverables sent out before I could enjoy myself.On our last night night there, we were visited by the biggest, fastest cockroach I'd ever seen. We did not manage to catch it as it moved too quickly under the furniture. Needless to say, we slept with the lights on that night !The location was perfect, we had a very short walk on the boardwalk to the beach, where I have never felt sand so powdery. The waves were fun and allowed for lots of body surfing. We can't wait to return to our beach getaway!
Room Smelled Like Pesticides Dustin W. from tomball, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 First of all we were moved to a different condo, which was alright. Woman in the office said she gave us a 20% discount, which we already got for booking during the weekday. So really didn't give us anything for changing rooms. The first thing we noticed is that the room smelled horrible with Pesticides. We called office and they stated oh it shouldn't smell that way. Well it did smell and they did nothing to fix it!! The condo smelled for four days and we sprayed febreeze the entire time. Plus woke up with headaches due to smell. The complex was nice, but your service is horrible. I even explained to the woman at check out about the smell and she said Oh Sorry! We also called about extra towels... guess you don't do that either, the guy stated to come to their office he had about three towels. Sure I will get in my car and drive two miles. We only had four towels in each bathroom for four nights. Plus when we checked in we had left over food in frig and a box of wine that was empty. I'm glad to know where my cleaning fee goes. The condo we had said four to five stars on your ratings on tripadvisor. I would of just liked the issue to be fixed and no one helped. I used your company last year.
There were mouse droppings in a drawer in the kitchen and a large roach in the kitchen cabinet--alive... A guest from Shawnee, OK does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 I remembered the add saying the unit had a washer and dryer.If there was a washer and dryer it was locked up and we had no access to it. If it's not going to be accessable don't advertise it...
Nice place - but needs some maintenance! Jessica M. from Keller, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2010 The place is at a nice location on the island but the unit does need some maintenance. Both bathroom sinks barely drain and when we first used the kitchen sink we flooded the kitchen as the drainage pipe wasn't hooked up. We put it back together and then tried to not use that side of the sink the rest of the visit!
Ideal for Family & Friends Julie H. from Leander, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 I am a real estate agent in the Austin, TX area & really enjoyed our girls trip to Port A. Brenda was very personable over the phone, it was great putting a face with the friendly voice & professional manner. The condo we rented was clean, safe, in a great location, easy access to the beach & the unit was in wonderful condition. I plan to go back with family & stay at this same location. Many properties around Port A are not as nicely kept & are in poor condition - this one was excellent!
beachhead condo 303 john n. from san antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 the view was excellent. the extensive rework of all decking and stairwells was great. would have like to have wifi access but when u vacation who wants email. the only bad thing was the mosquitoes (even on the beach when sun went down). great time and we had a wonderful wedding on the beach
Beachhead Vacation Chris P. from McKinney, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 We spent 3 night at Beachhead in July. It was a wonderful place. Great location, nice pool, playground for the kids, short walk to the beach. We plan on returning. We actually stayed a couple more days because Beachhead didn;t have any availability. We stayed at a place that was twice as much per night but not nearly as nice.
Girls Trip Betty H. from Quinlan, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2010 You need plugs in both bathroom. There is no way to dry or style hair. Blankets need washing after each guest. They had an odor. All in all everthing was great.
