Very Impressed by Our First Stay in Port A ! A guest from The Woodlands, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 Port Aransas Escapes provided very reliable and professional service. The link to the website they provided helped us to plan all aspects of our stay, including access to area activities. This was our first trip to the Port A area and we really enjoyed it. Location of the property and proximity to the beach and all conveniences was great, and the unit was in pristine condition.
port a getaway Wendy P. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 18 years going to port a and staying in various places. unit was spacious, but no trash pick up, no maid service at all, kind of had a dated,musty feeling/smell. we called ahead to let them know that we could not pick up key during office hours. they said no problem, arrangements were made to have key placed in lock box at management office. but when we got there and opened box, not keys. had to call emergency line, and a grumpy, "I am already in my pajamas" (it was 8:00)lady answered and then she came to the office and gave us keys. beach access if good, and if you don't mind doing housework, trash duty on your vacation, then this is an ok spot. we can not longer afford the outrageous price tag for port royal, so as an alternative, this is doable.
GREAT Condo to Rent!! Marlene G. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 I rented this unit for myself and my 4 kids (ages 30, 27, 22 & 12). It couldn't have been more perfect. Was VERY cute, great art, great bed choices and the kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed. HIGHLY recommend this unit and we will be back!
Family introduction to Texas coast Robert A. from Folsom, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 I had to take my California born wife and daughter to Port Aransas to experience classic Texas coastal beauty. It had been 35 years since my last visit and was thrilled to see it was the same old Port A but with modern improvements. The condo 505BH at Beachhead condos was just what the Dr ordered. Right on the beach and laid out perfectly with classic beach theme, you could tell the owners take great pride in this unit! The folks at Port A Escapes were very friendly and gave us great advice on local rest scene. We rented carts for 2 days and never used our car after that, what a fun time cruising up and down the beach. Don't miss out on renting one of these fun vehicles. Can't wait to go back and get another much needed recharge to the old batteries.
Cozy Getaway Andrea A. from Dallas, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 My boyfriend, sisters, brother and his girlfriend rented the condo for a short weekend at the beach. The condo was clean and the grounds well kept. With both bathrooms only accessible through the bedrooms, I would recommend this particular condo for no more than 4 adults. It was also a bit awkward with one room housing two twin beds, but the setup would have been ideal for a family.
Quant and Convenient A guest from Ransom Canyon, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Condo was nice and clean, and it is in a convenient location with easy access to the beach and Port A. I would stay again.
Great place! Great location! A guest from lake jackson, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Our family of 4 stayed at Vista Del Mar for 3 nights. Access to the beach is easy and the pool was nice! We enjoyed our stay!
Terrible weather for the beach, but the place was nice. Glenn S. from Desoto, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 Cold & rain were not what we hoped for, but we were unfamiliar with the area and had a chance to explore a bit. This unit was wonderfully decorated and we can't imagine a nicer one.
perfect rental for beach vacation A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Perfectly located, nice view, really clean and beautifully decorated. Just need to have the carpet updated and most of the kitchen utensils as well, as some are so old, they don't even seem safe to use.
Great Retreat Time A guest from Wimberley, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 This condo is one of the best that I've stayed in at Port A. The décor is great and the kitchen was complete with everything that you need.
Mini Vacation Jonathan K. from Forth Worth, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 The reason I marked down for amenities is because the TV in the master bedroom did not work at all. When we called to have the maintenance guy check on it they took all day to come. Then told us yep it's broken we will have to get the owners to get a new one. So we didn't have one for the whole stay. Also, in the guest bedroom they did not have cable. The only options was to watch movies on a DVD. Which would have been okay had we known but did not bring any movies b/c we thought we would have cable.
Family Reunion Weekend visit Mary Liz B. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 We rented 3 different condos for our family reunion. We decided on these three based upon photos and speaking to the representative. However, we would have liked to have known that the room we wanted the best waterfront view actually had the worst. And we especially needed to know that all rooms were on the third floor. One of our guests was elderly, and several were very young children, so the extra flight of stairs made trips to and from the room quite difficult. Desk staff upon arrival did their job, but did seem a bit frazzled and not very happy or friendly.
bathroom needed bathmats,pool bathroom to cold overall great trip Carmen H. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 We enjoyed our first time at beach with 3 very active little boys ages 4,5,and 6. they loved the playground and the pool. we enjoyed the beach it was a long walk on the pier and next time will take the car to beach front with all our beach apparatus we wanted to set up. the walk too and from beach was to much for us and all our chairs, toys and tent. we loved having a kitchen ,made eating in less expensive. HaHamain thing read all the papers your given at check in great info on unit. yes its two flights of stairs, but we found different ways to cut down on stairs. I know its a big deal when stairs are not your thing. consider it a mini vacation workout. we did. enjoy the moments. and the laughter of little boys enjoying the adventure.
Kids had a great time Tilleri D. from Rockwall, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 We came in for the weekend. My dad was staying at surf side RV so this location was great. It had everything we needed and a great view. My 4 yr olds first time at the beach-he loved it!!! Thanks again for sharing your condo.
Port Aransas Condo A guest from Houston, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 This unit has not been well maintained. For example, the sinks and fixtures are old and rusty in the bathrooms, there was a cigarette burn on tub, etc. I would not stay there again.
Anne Whalen Ann W. from Somerset, Nova Scotia recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in February, 2013 My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the property overall, including location etc. The only complaint we and all other tenants we spoke with was the lack of internet service. In my opinion this can only harm your business as in this day of needing instant information access, word does get around about the poor service. THIS IS A MOST NECESSARY REQUIREMENT THAT NEEDS UPDATING ASAP
perfect! Lynn S. from Canyon Lake, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 Everything was just right. This is a wonderful place to stay. We would love to stay much longer next time.
Another great stay in Port A! Laura H. from Austin, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 We love this condo! The location within the complex, the location on the island, and especially the very thoughtful and fun decor... Obviously a lot of love has gone into preparing this home-away-from-home for visitors. We were very comfortable, we made breakfast and one meal a day in the fully-equipped kitchen, and there was plenty of room to spread out when we needed some down time from each other, and then when we wanted to hang out together, there were cards and televisions with DVD players. It was a great stay! We'll be back, but only when this specific condo is available. :)
Great location Melissa G. from Ft Worth, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 The only downside was that it was located on the 3rd floor (which they don't mention when you book but the view was great and the place was adorable. Super close to beach & pool.
Awesome Getaway! Kim P. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 We absolutely loved everything about this condo-from the decorations to the fabulous view. Just wish the weather would have cooperated a bit!
Refreshed and Re-Newed Friendships Vickey J. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 My best friend flew in from Cali after not seeing her for 5 years. Myself, Sister and friend drove from Austin and found the Condos very easily. To our delight the room was perfect. 1 queen and 2 double beds, a great view of the gulf from the balcony, and since we brought lots of food, we were very happy the kitchen was well stocked. We had a fantastic time. We will book again soon.
Enjoyed it! A guest from Sugarland, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 The location was perfect, and the condo was in very good condition - not immaculate, but clean. Enjoyed our trip immensely. The view from our deck was slightly obstructed, but we could see the Gulf from our location while sitting on the right side of the deck. I loved the covered parking; really cut down on the additional salt spray on the windows overnight when the winds would pick up. It would really be helpful to put an icemaker or at least ice trays in the freezer. Additional towels would be helpful as well - two towels per person for the whole week is really chintzy. Other than a few minor issues like those mentioned, the experience was very positive. We will most likely be back!
Great location A guest from Mountain View, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 Great location! We had a wonderful time. Would only comment that the apartment is in need of a new can opener (and maybe a blender). Thanks!
My stay at Portaescapes Johnnie M. from Glenrose, Tx. recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 Went very smoothly.Enjoyed the view of the ocean from my kitchen.Very clean an comfortable place to stay.
Vista del Mar 505BH John B. from Celina, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We absolutely loved our stay here. It was spotless when we arrived. A short walk to the beach that we walked to every day. No one complained about uncomfortable beds (4 teenage boys)!! There is a journal for all guests to write in and it turns out the owners are from our part of North Texas, and, a big Football rival of ours. We definately plan on doing this at least every year, and requesting this same room. GO CELINA BOBCATS!!!
I have stayed in nicer places at Port A A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 Overall we had a nice stay. However there are several things that would have made it better. Ice trays or ice, a king size bed, clean chairs on the balcony(seagull poop all over them!) and a pantry to put our food in.
Beach head 505 Justin A. from New Braunfulls, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 Stay was great. The only thing was the view from the bocony, online it showed the view of the playground and vollyball court, but when I got there it was a view of the buildings next door. But thats the only thing other than that everything was great. Will go back for another vist.
Very cute and comfortable condo Julie C. from Del Valle, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011 The unit BH505 was very clean and comfortable during our stay. It was nice to have everything we needed with regard to the kitchen. It was well equipped for preparing meals.. The beds were ok, the furnishings made the place feel warm and inviting. Nice view of the beach and dunes from the right side of the balcony on this 3rd floor unit. I've stayed in 508 and though the view is better, it was not as updated as 505. Would like to try a 2nd floor unit next time, the above balcony would provide protection form direct sun. We love Beachhead and would reccomend to friends. Port A Escapes and the staff at Beachhead are very accomodating and friendly.
Great location Jennifer C. from Sibillo, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 The condo was in a great location and everyone was very helpful and nice. It was perfect for kids with the playground and a short walk to the beach. The condo was clean, just a little outdated. We would have liked something a little more up to date for the price.
WE MADE A BIG MISTAKE, Patrick fixed it quick. Mike S. from Austin, TX. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011 We arrived at 5:30, staff phoned to check our progress and stayed late to check us in. We got to the condo carrying our stuff in, when the wind blew the door closed, both keys locked inside. A quick call through the after hours answering service and Patrick saved the day. He made a return trip to the office immediately, and gave us another key, smiling cheerfully the whole time. A great guy from Boston, great management, great vacation. Beach was very nice, kids loved it too. See you next summer.
Beachhead condo Shari K. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 I was skeptical because of three flights of stAirs BUT I loved this location and the pool was beautiful with gulf view from the pool whichBeach view is my criteria. We give this a 5Love the customer service we receive and I will rent from themAlways
We had stayed here before and really enjoy the location right on the beach. The only thing that would improve this condo is to A guest from San Marcos, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 Also, I the 11am check out is just tooo early especially for Easter Sunday. I would think that during the off-season, that people should be able to stay until really late on Sunday (about 4pm). If you required a two-night stay and allowed for a late Sunday check out, your properties would be booked
Great Thanksgiving Weekend A guest from Colleyville, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2010 Enjoyed our stay. Great weekend with the family. The kids loved the beach and the men loved the fishing.Note to Port A Escapes: We also rented Unit 508BH in Clark Freeby's name so I didn't get a survey on it. We wouldn't rate it very well on general condition and cleanliness, although other ratings would be the same.
Great location and views! Egidio L. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 Property grounds were very inviting and clean, as was the property itself. Spacious design and great views! Will definitely return.
Good Service A guest from Manor, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2010 we enjoyed our stay at vista del mar. Accomodations were a little older than we expected, but very clean and comfy. I think it was overpriced and the extra fees for cleaning were a bit high. I would recommend this place though. Great service by the lady at coldwell.
A guest from San Antonio, Texas does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2010 The condo was overpriced. The decor was cute, but needs alot of updating. I was expecting more for the money. The extra fees were extensive. It was stressful to think that if we didn't get the garbage out just right or lose a key that it would rack up to such expensive costs on top of housekeeping and damage fees already charged. The beach and the weather were both awesome, though.
Sand Fest 2010 A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2010 Property was clean, comfortable and a convenient location. It had a limited view of the ocean. Had a good time and would stay there again.
