A bit disappointed.
A guest from Marble Falls, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2015 If you are looking for a property close to the beach, this is a great place. However, this condo is very outdated. The sleeper sofa in the living room very unconfortable. The kitchen could use a few more dishes.
Michael S. from Daingerfield, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 For the most part, it was nice. The flyer advised there were two covered parking spaces for each unit; but there was only one so had to keep switching vehicles out. One of the bathrooms had feces all around the toilet bowl when we arrived. We have stayed there before and overall, it was OK.
A guest from Kyle, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 The only thing going for it is the location and view. Very rundown and outdated. Uncomfortable beds with no mattress pads and stained mattresses.
A guest from Austin, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 Very disappointed with our stay and the management. We called multiple times to get access to wifi and no one got back to us. Dishwasher didn't work so we had to hand wash everything. Garbage disposal didn't work. Light in kitchen worked on and off. The outside patio light never worked. Master bedroom lights needed replacing. I left a complain to management and I never heard anything back. The extra sheets were NOT clean. The location is ideal and the beach access is great.
Rodolfo G. from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 The 2 bedroom condo was okay nothing to brag about. The facility seemed musky but I guess the location does not help so I can't really complain too much, however the rains flooded the entire parking area up to one foot of water at room 508 so it was horrible having to wade in water every time you exited/entered your vehicle. For the price I believe the place should have been better maintained. They could have at least pumped out the water from the parking facilities once the rain stopped on Friday night, instead it was flooded until Sunday when I left.
Cheryl P. from Fort Worth, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 Location and view wonderful. The size of the unit was great. Location on Port A was great. Negatives: Both bathrooms need to be updated. Also the door locks would not lock; management company called a locksmith. The locks were oiled; but this really needs to be replaced. I would recommend Beachhead; maybe not this unit until updated.
Location, Location, Location! Beach Head Condo - Nice!
Audrey M. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Overlooking the gulf, this condo had a nice breeze, while the other side of the condo was hot. All amenities worked just fine. Had to walk up 3 flights of stairs, but that was OK - a sacrifice for a great view and cool breeze. A tad outdated on furniture, but who cares? We were there to have a good time, and that we did! Nice pool, too. Very comfortable there. Would rent it again. Good price on this condo for the location. We could even scoot on our push-peds into town. Go for it!
Gary L. from Lago Vista, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Staying at Beachhead has always been such a fun experience for our family. We have been staying here since 1988 or so and have never been disappointed and this year was no different. Staff on site was just as amiable as usual. What I would like to see is a layout for the of the complex on paper when we pick up our keys from Port Aransas EScapes. In the past, we could get that. Will definitely be back.
Kent U. from Scherwtz, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We had a great time, the Condo was nice, clean, the view was great. We enjoyed the swimming pool after the days on the beach. Shopping and great restaurents were close. All and all a great experience. Thank you we'll be back!
A guest from Canyon Lake, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Beachhead is a place we've stayed for generations. Always enjoy it and will continue to come back as long as we can. It's like a home away from home.
Roberto P. from Mico, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 Since mid-80s, my family and friends have stayed many times at Beachhead, and this time might have been our last. 508 is not worth the amount charged, needs a lot of up-grading to merit the bill. The doors are off, a rusted chair was on the balcony, the remote control didn't have a backing and batteries fell out, the carpet is stained enough to give the place a 50s motel look, not one clothes hanger in place, small drops of grease on the stoves, and if I owned the place I would've changed the furniture several years ago. The location is too good for what 508 offers. Like I said, we have stayed there many times...and it's gotten (inside condo)old-looking--sadly. My family has fond memories of our visits ... but the value isn't there anymore, and we will no longer recommend to our friends. By the way, let the onsite manager check guests in...driving to the busy mainstreet over a mile away is making guests work--not an escape--and not leisure. Thank you for asking for my opinion.
A guest from Jersey Village, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 Great view! Needs basic updating! Paint, Caulking, deco, faucets in bathrooms and kitchen. There were no cushions on the metal slatted chairs. Need to upgrade to bar height chairs that don't need cushions so that you can see the view over the railing! Sofa is great! Over all nice basic place to stay!
A guest from Arlington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 No complaints. Right on the beach as described. Has a dvd player. Only thing wish I knew before is if you book with Port A Escapes you need to check in with them. Their location is very close but it would have saved time to know that beforehand. Check in and out was super quick. I appreciate that a lot.
A guest from Grinnell, Iowa recommends this property. Stayed for 65 days in February, 2014 Beachhead is a delightful condo resort with friendly & professional staff on the grounds. We enjoyed meeting and socializing with others in the resort. The unit we were in had a marvelous view but the interior left much to be desired. It is in dire need of upgrades including 1) lighting that works 2)properly functioning dishwasher, 3)proper sofa bed or other sleeping arrangement in living area 4)repair or replace the window frame & mechanism in master bedroom (it falls out when raised) 5) many small cosmetic upgrades to include regluing or replacing peeling wallpaper, etc. 6) the 2 story climb to the unit was a bit of a pain but was actually good for us.
A guest from Navasota, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Furniture and appliances very dated, Carpet dirty around baseboards. A/C great. Remote to tv worked poorly.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 I REALLY wanted to like this particular condo more than I actually did. The location is excellent, the general property is very clean and orderly. However this unit really needs some LOVE. I have a great deal of experience with beach rentals and I know all of the ins & outs and I would definitely rent this again in a pinch. But it is such a gorgeous location and I really wish the owners would come in and at least remove the carpet. That little touch would make a world of difference.As other reviewers mentioned, the boardwalk is very close to this unit- very handy. The top floor is an advantage and the location of the master bedroom was perfect for me as I left the blinds open so I could be woken up by the sun streaming into the room and welcoming me to my new beach day.
A guest from Legrange, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 I loved the view from the balcony. The condo was clean and had all the necessities but was a bit out dated. We loved the walk on the boardwalk to the beach. We had a great time and would definitely stay there again.
Ashley H. from Sterling City, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 They were rude and griped at us and one person told us one thing and another would say something else it was overall bad!!
A guest from canyon lake, texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 We have stayed at Beachhead condos before, and have always had a great time. We had a wonderful time, as usual. However, we were disappointed in the condition of this particular unit. There were several issues in the area of general upkeep of the unit that needed attention. Peeling wallpaper in the bathroom repaired with staples! Rusty shower curtain rod, and tub also rusted and in need of fresh caulking. The pull out sofa in such bad condition it was useless. The unit was just not well kept by the owner. All things that would seem to be quick and easy fixes. I will stay at Beachhead again but will avoid this unit.
A guest from Spring, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Renter beware. Do your research before booking. NO linen service. You must wash your own towels. On site assistance was cordial when you could finally get in contact with someone. Kitchen was poorly stocked for basic cooking needs and had not been cleaned in a while. Numerous visits to Beachhead in the past were wonderful, this time not so much. Location and views were very nice.
rm 508 should not be rented to anyone and is not the rm I reserve
Belinda G. from Pasedena, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Old musty dirty fridge handles broken oven didn't work a couple of roaches in the kitchen balcony full of bird **** apt look like a storage 1 closet was full of sprays have pictures vacuum and old fan was left out I don't believe that rm.should have been rented please call me. On there behalf they gave me 25% back on my rental was I pleased no and no explanation on why I was given this room we rented 7 rooms from you I feel I deserved more did go to office next day patrick came to the rm with me he cleaned the balcony and sprayed into the ac vents.please call me im not one to complain but I have more to say for $1232.i expected more not the dump I was given especially when I saw all of the other rooms that was given to my family it was granddaughter 15th birthday we were celebrating couldn't very well leave.once again no explanation at all.
Dewayne & Toni D. from Meridian, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 This was our third year to go to Port A we have enjoyed every year. We have stayed in a different room every year. We plan to go back next year and stay in the same place we like the location on Beachhead Condos and the access to the beach is great for us. Thank you look forward to seeing you again next year.
A guest from Pearland, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2013 This location was the absolute best we've stayed in at Beachhead because of it's top floor, closest location to the beach. It is easy access to the beach everyday and the boardwalk areas to get from there to the pool and back again were super convenient. The beds were very comfortable and we liked the open layout with the master bedroom being on the ocean view side. This location doesn't hear any noise at night from the neighboring complex or from either sides. Beachhead also has what we thought to be the least crowded section of the beach.The only negatives we had were in the dated kitchen (which we were prepared for from the reviews), but to note are the following: the microwave plate doesn't spin so cooking is uneven, bring your own can opener, and the dishwasher racks have lost a lot of their coating in many places and rusted/broken off (but it works just fine). Even still, we adapted in our 9-day stay and will definitely select this unit again when we come back.
A guest from Gonzales, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 Description of unit is incorrect. 2nd Bedroom has two TWINS not two DOUBLES. Had bad experience with rental company. Had anticipated late arrival so had arranged for lockbox. Was on the ferry right before 5:00pm so called the rental company and asked if the lockbox was already in place or asked if I should pick up a key on the way to the unit. Was assured the lockbox was there. Arrive at the unit, five people trudge up two flights of stairs loaded with our weekend gear. NO LOCKBOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Called the rental company and explained the situation (and how I had just called to ensure I'd be able to get in). I asked if they could bring the key over, which they said they could not do. Leave four people sitting outside unit and go to rental company. Walk in and 3 people are sitting around doing nothing -- Not my idea of customer service and not how I wanted to start my stay. That being said, the unit was very acceptable for the price.
John and Beverley P. from Ottowa, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 90 days in January, 2013 This was our 13th year at Beachhead and as usual very enjoyable. The addition of a new Basthroom sink and Vanity was a long awaited and welcome addition. Thanks to Cynthia and Gerry and Greg for help and assistance
Rebecca L. from Cibelo, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 We looked forward to our vacation to Port A, but were very, very disappointed in the lodging at Beachhead Condos. The condo rented looked as if no care to the place had been given ever. There was a musty smell, the carpet was in very bad shape, the kitchen stove was unusable do to the burners not sitting correctly so we could not even cook there. The cookware was scratched and the teflon pans were pitiful. The beds were terrible, we rolled into the middle of the bed. Box springs were shot as well in all of the beds. I will be contacting Groupon with this review as well. I would not recommend this place to anyone. We felt very much like we were taken advantage of. The place we rented was not what was described on the website. The unit was very substandard.
A guest from Weatherford, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Hi, This condo needs some updates, CHEAP blinds falling off window, carpet needs replaced BADLY, bathrooms OLD...spend $1000 bucks and make it livable! Great view and nice amenities.
John G. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Location was great & accomodations ok but it was the cheapest quality I could imagine...from the cracked deck chairs to the flimsy toilet seat...
Jesse B. from Willow Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 Waking up with a beautiful sunrise over the ocean was worth the trip itself. Lovely little town with very nice and helpful people. Definitely planning on going back!
Judy E. from New Braunfels, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 Great location, good, clean beds. Older facility. Could use some updates and maintenance but overall good place to stay.
A guest from Hurst, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 the location was wonderful! The kitchen floor needed to be mopped and the carpet needed to be cleaned. The rest of it was okay.
Jeff F. from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Beach Head was recommended to us by a friend, but I would not recommend it because of the steep price. For the price, I would expect both bedrooms to have quality queen-sized beds. We are planning to return to Port Aransas with friends in November, but are not able to share this condo because of the twin beds. The carpet in our unit wasn't even installed, just layed upon the floor. The refrigerator wasn't working when we arrived, causing us to buy multiple bags of ice until it was working (24 hours later) and the internet service was not working, causing us to spend $20 for extra data. The most disappointing aspect of our visit was the lack of music playing devices (CD player, etc.) We would be interested to know more about your other properties for our future visits. Thank you, Gretchen Farris
John and Beverley P. from Ottowa, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 120 days in December, 2011 Bev and I have vacationed in Port A Beachhead for the last 12 years and enjoyed it every year. We like Port A Escapes method of paying our monthly rent by Mastercard. As for Beachhead condo #508 the bathroom in the bedroom by the kitchen could use some upgrading.The sink is rusty and the faucets drip Brenda and Peter were very accomodating. The manager Cynthia was also friendly as was JP
A guest from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 great location..but this unit really needs an update..also sure would be nice if the windows opened. We probably wouldn't stay there again because you cant open the windows to hear the ocean, feel the breeze....
David P. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 although we really enjoyed are stay, we thought the condo needed some updating ie bathrooms kitchen carpet or tile and paint
Julie C. from Del VAle, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 This unit was in need of serious updating. The pots and pans in the kitchen were very used. The bathroom door and celing in the guest bathroom was in need of repair and/or replacement. The unit was however, very clean, the management company extremely accomodating and professional. The views from the balcony, amazing and made it all worth while. We found the beds to be very comfortable. I thought it was a bit pricey for an outdated unit, however it was Labor day weekend so we expected to pay more. Overall, enjoyed our stay very much. Would come back again.
A guest from Bandera, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 Once again we enjoyed our stay. The only comments I have are that the turntable didnt work in the microwave and the pots and pans, etc. need to be updated. The ceiling in the one bathroom looks like its about to fall down....the place need an overhaul but we always love staying at beachhead. Love the view!! I hope to be able to come up next summer and stay in the same unit as well. Thank you for a wonderful time~~!!
A guest from Pflugerville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 All minimum expectations were met with this property, and the unit was very clean. It definitely served it's purpose, but the kitchen was older and not well stocked with pots, pans, etc. and the bathrooms were tiny and the water pressure low, but there was always hot water. AC worked great and great view. Too expensive for the quality - much newer, nicer, more modern condos for less money in the area.
Mary D. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 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. The only thing that wasn't great was the skillets in Serene Seashell 508BH but we made do. Management was great, they definitely took care of us. We actually had booked two 2/bdrm units and stayed the first 4 nights in those units that were great as well. We enjoyed it so much we just didn't want to leave and fortunately management was able to put us in to 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.
We talked with the agency specifically about this property. We were told it had been updated, and it had not. It is a great loca
A guest from san antonio, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 If a condo needs updating, they should tell you. If we were going for "rustic" we would have chosen this at a discounted price, but that was not the case. Check in was not available and took several phone calls to find out what to do & where to go. When we checked out we told the management about our experience and were told they would compensate in some way. The called back and said they would not. Hopefully changes will be made to this unit.
Michael M. from Austin, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 Cons: Refrigerator sounded like a diesel truck running because the fan in the freezer was broken.Top heating coils in oven were hanging down halfway into the oven.Microwave turntable did not work.Carpets were filthy.Bathrooms had damaged doors and fixtures.Only room for one parking space in this unit despite the information given in advance.No daily maid service, not even trash pickup or replacement of paper towels.Pros: Great view. Quiet complex. Great walkway to beach.Verdict: There are better places to stay for the money in Port A. Whoever owns this unit is apparently unwilling to invest in the basic upkeep. Another unit may be better, but I wouldn't risk it.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 Preferred to know that the place was on the third floor, lots of steps to climb up and down with kids and lots to tow; AC broke down; remodeling noise below us; carpet not as clean as could have been; TV fuzzy; wasn't told about needing a password for WiFi and had to wait till next day mid morning for help; not told about code to get back to condo from board walk, had to call for that while kids were tired and cranky;
John and Beverley P. from Ottowa, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 91 days in January, 2011 That was our 11th year at Beachhead and the first with Port A Escapes. The bed linen exchange was a big help and was excellent, the bath and towels were of superior quality and the staff, Brenda was very pleasnt to deal with. WE have signed up for 2012 at the same location and the same arrangements, so plan to see "y'all" in early Jan 2012Jack & Bev Peterkin
Argo S. from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2010 you need to fix the lock on the private access, the code wasn't working and I had to walk around, the shower head was leaking and the drain in the bathroom was slow, for what I was charged I should have gotten a $50 refund.
John S. from Alice, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2010 The only issue was I am disabled and I didn't realize it was on the third floor. If I would have known I would have requested a ground floor unit. As a result once I got to the condo I stayed in. This wasn't to much of an issue since it was for my daughter and her friends not me. They had a great time.
Robert O. from Flower Mound, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 The new office staff was exceptionally helpful in all encounters. My only complaint that they were already concerned about was the noisy external air compressor unit. It made the balcony uncomfortable.I will be back again. This was my 5th or 5th stay over the last dozen years.
A guest from College Station, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2010 We stayed at the Serene Seashell last weekend, and it was pretty good overall. There was some misleading information on the website, however. For example, the website says one bedroom has a king-sized bed, but it was definitely a double-sized bed; not even a queen and far from a king. Besides this, it was fine for a weekend but if it were for longer I would suggest bringing more towels (there were only 4 even though the rental property can sleep 6) and a scrubbing sponge for pots & pans (the dishcloths did help very much). Overall, we enjoyed the stay and had a good time and I would suggest going through Port A Escapes for any Port A rental.
A guest from Bandera, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 this is the third time to stay at beachhead, the last time being in 2000. was the same unit, so was getting a little old inside, hole in wall by kitchen, ceiling in one bathroom coming down, carpet not up to par, refrigerator old and noisy when running, knobs missing. overall though, we had a great stay and will probably be back next year.
