Reviewed by: Audrie O. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 It smelled, it was dirty and it had roaches. Not water bugs from outside but actual roaches! I'm trying to understand why there would be carpet inside a beach home if it makes the whole place smell. I've stayed in older condos than this one in Port A and they were much cleaner and DID NOT have roaches. I really liked the complex/pool and the furniture was pretty decent but the condo itself, I did not. We also needed wifi and were unable to connect so I called Port A Escapes/management to tell them about it. The woman on the phone said she would call me back but did not do so. I would be dishonest to say that I would recommend this condo to anyone.
A guest from Beaverton, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016 The room we booked, 308, was absolutely terrible. As we opened the door, an overwhelming industrial smell was the first thing we noticed. The carpet was stained with spills especially under the dinner table. The walls were dirty and grimy. The toilet seat was stained. The dining room chairs were torn and falling apart. Finally, the couch had a slip cover that was full of lint. When I called to complain, the clerk told me that know one else had complained about the room and I was welcome to drive back and get my money back. After much discussion, an employee brought us a key for 304. The place was cleaner but that horrible smell was even more prevalent. In addition, the dishwasher was not anchored and fell every time we opened the door. Overall, I was very disappointed because of the inconvenience and stress. I was looking forward to time with my family in Port Aransas,however, for the price and lack of customer service I would never recommend this place to anyone and I will never come back. To end on a positive note, the pool was nice.
Logan M. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016 Great stay! The property is an older vintage, but well maintained, and the unit has been updated. Very comfortable and a great location. Close to shopping and dining. We loved the easy beach access. We'd love to stay here again next time.Management did a great job of communicating throughout the process
Vincent P. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016 Good experience.I return on an annual basis in several other condos.The issue we experience is the lack of wifi use. Over the last three stays, I have not been able to connect to the Wifi.
A guest from Mcqueeney, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 we have rented condos at Beachhead for many years. The location is exceptional, but the units are showing their age. As we are also older, I am not sure we will rent here again. Schlepping all our gear up the stairs in bothersome.
A guest from Arlington, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 Even though the weather was supposed to be bad, Mother Nature provided us with a windy, but incredible couple of days. This unit had a great view and was peaceful. The unit is a little dated but very comfortable. It needed to have a better variety of cooking vessels. We had only one issue where we needed to contact management and they were polite and prompt. When other guests don't adhere to the parking guidelines, the parking can be a little tight for this unit as it is at the end of the row, but that is what made it feel more secluded and peaceful. The management company was very professional and courteous. We look forward to returning!
Dwight K. from Buda, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 needs some touch up: refrigerator has unsightly rust on side. Fan in master bed room needs repair. Need more no-slip strips in 2nd bedroom bathtub. Laminate on counter top coming loose. Killed two cockroaches during our stay.
Karen T. from Boling Green, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 60 days in January, 2014 realty company very unresponsive to my careful list of everything needing attention after I had driven 3 days straight from Minnesota - southern graciousness and hospitality - I don't think so!!! Actual on-site manager much nicer and she and maintenance man got everything fixed. Location near downtown and right at the beach very good, very comfy beds and excellent water pressure. This place has been "redecorated" but not "remodelled", Very shabby in kitchen and around bathroom edges. Did meet owner - very nice person. WAY TOO MUCH DARK ART. We were hoping for sunny yellow walls and some beach furniture. NOT WORTH $1500. a month. Also realty company had originally shown us "remodelled" but we got "redecorated"; not an honest transaction in my opinion. I WOULD DEAL AGAIN WITH THE ONSITE MANAGER BUT NOT WITH PORTAESCAPES. These people are in business, but not in customer service. And it is BOWLING GREEN.
A guest from Edgewood, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 Condo with front seat to ocean view. Beautiful!! Issue with filthy cloth covered dining room chairs. They were stained with food and ??? We asked that they be removed and replaced with folding chairs. Chairs were delivered quickly but dirty chairs remained and we wound up pulling aside and covering with blankets. Refrigerator stained with rust on outside was gross as well.
Mari B. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 We very much enjoyed Beachhead Condos. The staff were very friendly and quick to respond. There were not sheets for the pull-out beds but they brought them quickly. There were little roaches in the kitchen and bathroom(hence the 3 star "clean" rating) but otherwise everything was clean. The view was fantastic and the unit decorated very nicely. We had a wonderful time and will return!
A guest from Spicewood, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 We stayed here once before & loved the condo, it was obvious this condo owner doesn't stay on top of things! There was some kind of leak in 2nd bedroom under carpet all wet & smelly, the frige needs replacing, rusty looking,I found couple of cockroaches,could use an extermination,& the shower heads were put in for midgets, had to stoop down to take a shower, love the view though, close to beach is a big plus.
Lori H. from Harker Heights, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 We recently stayed at Beachhead Condos aka Tiempo De Sol and had a great time. The location was perfect with a short walk to the shore. Our room was different than what was described to us, but for our family of 4 kids and 2 adults we made the best of it. The condo had some very interesting pieces of "art" which kept us busy guessing about their origins. The kitchen, while small, had everything we needed and then some. While the Condo needs updating and some leaks need to be fixed, this really is a great little escape from reality--we loved our weekend of Rest and Relaxation in Port A.
A guest from Frisco, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Overall the accomodations were satisfactory, but the unit could be cleaner. The showers were not clean at all and there were lots of bugs crawling around in the kitchen and twin bedroom, enough to wake you at night. I believe the dining room chair cushions could use a good cleaning. I believe it would have been nice to have a hair dryer on the premises, beach chairs and a blender. Otherwise, the unit was satisfactory. I would not be very happy if I had paid the in season price for this unit.
Greg F. from San Antonioi, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 After being scammed by another property with misleading ads and artwork, I contacted Patrick and explained my situation. Patrick was able to meet me at my lodging budget. We re packed all the belongings at the scam place and made a 60 second drive to Beach Head. The wife and kids jaw dropped when they entered this incredibly beautiful rental. No whining about the un-packing for a second time. This was home away from home.The cleanest property in 20 years of vacation on the island! Great staff, great pool, great view, kitchen, beds, baths, etc. 5 stars for sure. Thank You!
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 I've been staying at the Beachhead for many years. Lovely place and location. We love it there. Unfortunately, they took the mgmt off-site and many things are not maintained as they should be. For example, the four deck chairs for our unit were completely rusted out and bent. I informed the mgmt company. They kindly brought by TWO new chairs, but there were four of us. All other units had four chairs. Also, the lock on the back window was broken, and there was a crack in the wall. You could hear the wind come through the door/window. Mgmt should inspect for regular caulking, weatherstripping, and maintenance. The shower head to spray off the sand when you returned from the beach was broken and leaking. I had to report it after two days. The hose worked, but mgmt were wasting a lot of water and $$, when simple inspections should have fixed the problem sooner. Seems to be going downhill--which is such a shame for such a special place.
Ok for 1st stay but will choose different one next time....
A guest from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 It was ok for the short time we were there. Needs more thorough cleaning...few small roaches in kitchen once we put food up so we had to tie food up in bags. All lamps didnt have light bulbs to use. Tub in first bathroom looked dirty and had some type of spots in bottom.....
Melinda S. from Austin, texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 This condo is amazing. Amazing location- right by the boardwalk to the beach. Amazing view. Amazing decor. We will definitely be back!
Julie E. from The Woodlands, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 The lights in the first bedroom flickered off an on and there was a door to the outside in it. The showers were rusted and so was the fridge
A guest from Terrell, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 Great location. Parking difficult to maneuver. Items stolen from carport. Family friendly. Common areas conducive to family gatherings.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 Very nice condo in convenient location. Some of the lamps were missing light bulbs, but the decor was outstanding. Would have appreciated the management company offering information on things to do in the area and discounts available through their company. They were a bit lackluster in receiving us as guests. Rain had been forecasted and a list of things to do would have been welcomed.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 The property was clean except for the dining room carpet and the dining chairs. Ick. The view was good and the boardwalk made for an easy walk to the beach.
A guest from Dripping Springs, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 I had a great time! The condo was beautifully decorated, had a great view and great vibes! I felt very comfortable. I wish I could come back every weekend!
Groupon led me here, but I will definitely go back!
Jennifer G. from Universal City, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 I was very pleased with the service and the condo. My family was really excited about it from the pictures and the pictures don't do the place justice. It was so much fun! THanks for the great place :)
A guest from Seguin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 This condo was just the right size for my husband and myself, very nicely decorated, facing the gulf. The boardwalk to the beach was a nice walk and the walk around the condo property was good also.
A guest from Broken Arrow, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2012 The rental needed some work which should not cost much. Spray paint the exterior of the refrigerator which is covered with rust, plumbing issues with a toilet and dripping tub and an interior door that needed serious replacement. The stove could use some help too. If the owners want the rental income they need to pay better attention to everyday amenities and less on wall art.
Student M. from Universal City, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 I brought 40 people for a 3 day youth retreat. The facilities were amazing! Very Clean and nice property layout with pool, volley ball court and beach! Would highly recommend!!
Beverly M. from Bulverde, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 This unit could use some repair --door frames--kitchen freshen up. It had an oder of 'bug spray' when you walk in--not very pleasant! Bathroom off master bedroom, a bit small.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 The unit was perfect, stocked with everything we needed. The location and view were great. I'm going to make this my go to Port A retreat.
A guest from Uvalde, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012 Management personnel was wonderful. The coffee pot was not working & they brought us a replacement immediately! Just a wonderfully located & relaxing place to stay!
MIA O. from AUSTIN, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011 Condo need a few minor repairs and a new coffee maker but was in a perfect location for us with lovely views. We will go back!
A guest from Irving, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 Our family has stayed at Beachhead most of the past 16 years. It is a comfortable and convenient place to stay. We would not consider staying anywhere else.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011 The location and condo was great. Short walk to beach, and all facilities you need are right there. The managing company, however, will NOT let you check in a minute before 4, even if room is ready, so be prepared to wait if you get there a bit early. They won't "call you if the room is ready earlier", trust me.
Sylvia G. from Elgin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 While the general exterior of the place may be misleading, this particular condo, TIEMPO DEL SOL, was particulary cozy and exquisite. Better than more expensive condo's ive stayed at. this condo overlooks the walkway and is very close to walkway. BEDS were very comfy and location in town was convenient.
Mary D. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 My family and I loved staying at Beachhead. The location is great and the condos were spacious, clean and fully equipped with all the comforts of home. The big sparkling clean pool was a bonus for the grandkids. Management was great, they definitely took care of us. They guided me via phone from Corpus to Beachhead because I missed my exit coming from Houston and ended up in Corpus. We actually had booked two 2/bdrm units and stayed the first 4 nights in those units that were great as well (Tiempo de Sol 304 BH & Sunrise View 303BH). We enjoyed staying at BH so much we just didn't want to leave and fortunately management was able to put us in two other units for the next two nights. Port A is a great place to bring the family for R&R, fishing, dolphin watching, etc. We plan to come back next year and will definitely stay at Beachhead.
Linda R. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in August, 2010 We stayed here with some friends over the weekend, was quoted one price and when I called back was charged a different price due to an error the individual made. In overall I would say that we enjoyed our stay it was close by the beach and the pool wasn't to far for us to walk. The rooms were well maintained the only but was the A/C stayed at 80 the entire time, the fridge not cooling and the restroom door being broken(off hinges). I did speak with the person with whom I made the reservations about this concerns which she did promptly return my call.
Carla M. from Helotes, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 We haave been staying at BeachHead for over ten years;this was our first stay since Port Aransas escapes took over the property. We had a great time and the complex looks great. I do wish the check inand check out were on site, but that was the only negative! We had a great time and will be back!
teresa g. from austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 My family and I have stayed at Beachhead for 30+ years so obviously we liked the property. The on-site manager, Cynthia, is great. However, the new off-site management is terrible. Picking up the keys off-site is a hassle. In the past, fresh towels were delivered each day. Now, guests must go to the off-site office for a towel exchange. Guests are basically responsible for cleaning the unit before leaving. That is ridiculous. If management intends to charge guests for "stained" linens & towels, then guests should be provided a "move-in inventory form" upon check in so they can record the condition of these items upon entering the unit. Beachhead always had a homey, welcoming, family friendly atmosphere. Now, with off-site management, this has disappeared especially with the new rules & regs. Friends who have visited Beachhead with us in the past years have already said that, after this year's visit with the new management, they will not return. BTW, I am a real estate broker and own a property management company so I do have experience and knowledge to support this review.
