A guest from Tyler, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016 We had a wonderful time on Mustang Island and the Buttercup Cottage was the perfect getaway for my husband and I, our little one, and my parents. The house was cozy, clean, and in a great location. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub within walking location, and spent each morning and evening on the back deck. Checking in and out was easy as well. Thanks for a great vacation!
Clair G. from Round Rock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 Our family of three had a wonderful getaway at buttercup cottage! It was perfect size, clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch and balcony, listening to ocean waves. It would be nice to have comfortable chairs out there. Also, the (very close) neighbors were really loud on their balcony late at night. Loved the location outside of town. Very quiet and peaceful.Overall a pleasant stay and we would come back here. Thank you!
Alfred D. from houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 This was a great find for my friends and I. I will definitely stay here again next year on our annual trip. The only thing the place was missing was a broom to sweep up the sand we brought in.
Reviewed by: Sebastian M. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 The house was very clean, super cute and cozy! They provided pretty much everything you would need besides toiletries. We still had to drive to the beach because we had too much stuff to walk out there but it was like a 3 min drive so not bad at all.
Reviewed by: Cynthia V. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 The home was cute and just the right size for the three of us. The neighborhood was quiet, even during spring break. Very peaceful! The pool was nearby and beautiful.
A guest from Raymore, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 47 days in January, 2016 It was a good stay! We are planning on repeating the stay next winter. Comfortable home was in a quiet location. Areas of improvement in the kitchen include a larger skillet with lid, a glass measuring cup for liquids, & a small whisk. It would be great to have a soft chair in the master bedroom. Quick response for request to repair locks & vacuum cleaner. Home was clean with the exception of the shower door area in master bedroom. We enjoyed deep sea fishing, fishing off the jettys, JELM activities, Avery's Kitchen, Inferno, Snoopy's, & Doc's restaurants.Home was nicely decorated with an open "shotgun" floor plan. We look forward to returning!
Reviewed by: Steven R. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Okay if your in a pinch and can't find anything better. No beach access. 8 miles from Port Aransas so a 10 minute drive to anything. Heavy construction next door woke us at 6 am every morning. Rude contractors blocking access to the property at all hours of the day. Roaches in the upstairs bathroom. No WiFi, only basic cable channels. For what I paid for the rental I expected a little more.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 This was a nice property to stay in if you enjoy being in a quiet area. Positives include clean property, good beds, and fun pool for small kids. Be aware that "beach access" means you drive to the public entry point. There was also a mildew smell upstairs, which was surprising since it is 'newer' construction.
Dillon K. from Arlington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 It was awesome! Clean and perfect for our family. Pool was nice also! I recommend this for a small family. I will definitely use this house again next time we visit port A.
A guest from Midlothian, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 the cottage itself was nice but the property need taking care of better. My children and I got stickers going to the pool everyday. They mowed some of the property one day and left the clippings of grass and stickers everywhere including the sidewalks and streets. Their was construction going on next door which they told me before booking but they were cussing and that's not appropriate especially in front of my 7 and 3 year old. There is no beach access so you have to load up and take a short 5 min drive to get to the beach. In all this could be a nice stay if the property was better taking care of and no construction and if beach access and ocean view is not a priority.
Craig W. from Boerne, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 This was a very nice cottage and well maintained. A tropical storm had blown through a few days earlier, so the back area was still muddy...hardly anyones fault. The bar-b-que pit was bery poor. The type you would see at a public park or rest stop. TV in main bedroom was not working proper, but we weren't there to watch TV. Well supplied kitchen. Easy access to beach. A house next door was under construction, so there was a little noise. All in all, a good place in a good location.
Overall Good but some opportunities for improvement
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 The bad: #1. No wifi at available at all. This is crazy. Every place nowadays should have a strong, consistent wifi signal, period. #2. construction next door- the constant noise all day long from the machines was annoying and unsightly due to scraps and trash laying around from the workers. The workers also blared their music loudly in the morning despite my telling them to turn it down. This really affected our experience. The good: The rental company could not have been nicer. They genuinely seem eager to help you and are quick to respond if you need anything. They were a pleasure to work with. The house was very clean and comfortable. Overall I think the rate was reasonable, but there is no beach access from this property. You have to drive about a mile and enter that way, after getting a permit ($12) which was easy to buy. We were under the impression we could easily walk to the beach from this house, but that's not the case. There is no view. But you get what you pay for I guess.
A guest from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 This is a great little cottage. Secluded, near to the beach, out of the way and quiet. It is clean and modern, just the right size. We had a great relaxing time there. Thank you so much.
nice place to stay. it's not walking distance to the beach
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Bring pest spray for roaches spiders and ants. We left some subway sandwhiches in the microwave and they were covered in ants within a few hours, other than the small bug visitors it was a nice place to stay and in a great location
Lisa P. from West, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 This was our second year to stay in this house and we absolutely loved it. Had a super relaxing time and loved how quiet the neighborhood was. Beach was great, pool was great. The house is very well taken care of. All it needs is a new grill. But I wouldn't change anything else. Will definitely go back again.
elizabeth l. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 We really enjoyed staying at the butter cup cottage. The only thing is that the rugs were covered in stickers and the master bed way too high.
Beautiful home, quiet location. very tranquil and relaxing.

Reviewed by: Grace B. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 We had a great stay. The only bad things I can say was that the hot tub didnt work and it was a little far from town but that was actually a good thing with our stay being on a super busy weekend.
Kimberly S. from Blanchard, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2014 It was truly AWESOME. Property was super clean and quiet all around. Pool and hot tub were kind of cold but it was still march. Town folks and locals are friendly and helpful. Staff at the lodging facility are super nice and extremely professional, they were a true blast to deal with and made the booking, check in and out process so easy. These folks are GREAT !! Thank you all for your help, patience and cooperation we will definitely be back again soon.
A guest from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2014 A wonderful experience and amazing value: We highly recommend! Spacious downstairs and cozy upstairs with a view of the Gulf peeking through sand dunes on two sides. Located within easy driving distance of the beach and equidistant from causeway and ferry. Very helpful staff at Port A Getaways. Only glitch due to date of rental: It was January and the heating system could make the upstairs pretty hot when we tried to heat the cool downstairs. Otherwise a near-perfect experience!

Jim L. from Alpine, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We had a couple good size spiders show up, but other than that enjoyed our stay. A short drive to a clean beach area. Pool and hot tub are nice as well.
David P. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Had a great time at Buttercup Home. Had all the amenities necessary. Clean and neat. We will return. It also has a beach access within a mile from the house...
Reviewed by: Steven W. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 We LOVED the property and will recommend it to anyone. We will stay again if its available. Our only complaint would be the was so windy and hard to keep it lit and it was small. The house was perfect for us and super clean. The pool was great and we were the only ones using it. Can't wait to go back.
A guest from Niagra Falls, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 Very clean home. However, I had anticipated it having easier access to the beach.We were there for only 3 nights out of a week long vacation and had travelled by air so we did not pack things like beach towels, or laundry soap. We had hoped to have done some laundry while we were there, but didn't want to go buy supplies for such a short stay. There was no kettle or coffee filters, so making tea and coffee was difficult. Main reasons we chose a home to rent instead of a room was for some of those conveniences. Coffee filters would have been easy to bring if we new there was not a coffee maker with a washable filter. Beach towels would have been nice.The hot tub did not work the entire time we were there and we called property management company, it was never fixed. I mentioned this when we dropped off the keys and they said they would call the management company again. The pool does not have any chairs, so again, we thought we would make use of the facilities and there were no facilities to use.Would be a good spot if you are travelling by car and can pack everything you need for a week. We rented it for convenience, and didn't receive much.
Norma R. from Lindanhurst, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2013 Good experience aside from the hot tub in the pool location not working as well as the wireless situation. I understand the purpose of a vacation is to relax but wireless unfort. is a life necessary especially for a college student who still needs to communicate with instructors. I've stayed at a few rental location with Port Aransas Escapes and both locations the wireless was a struggle to locate.
Aubrey S. from Corpus Christi, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 We were not pleased with our stay and would have loved to spent $530 elsewhere. The jacuzzi was not working and the weekend we were there was cold. The maintenance log on the jacuzzi showed it had not been working since May 2012. The upstairs bedrooms did not have working cable and it would have been nice since we have a baby to have television in the rooms while being up at night. Had we known about the jacuzzi we would have gladly gone elsewhere since it was advertised as working.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Overall all the stay was ok, we have a 3 month old so we were looking to get away in a quiet location and this seemed perfect. The Management company was awesome, very professional, only down side was that there seemed to be alot of rules, no trash left behind, use certain towels to wash your face, turn the AC up to 80, which doesn't seem like a problem but when you have a 3 month old and you are trying to get out of the house to leave, it takes forever. The house overall was was very clean, had a few problems, the doors are rusted out so they are very hard to shut and lock. There were a few roaches but they were dead, and the mosquitoes were horrible off the front porch at night. The "view" of the ocean from the balcony was non existent unless you looked really hard off in a corner, but you could hear the ocean at night. I was disappointed that we couldn't see the ocean, since that was the reason we were there. Off the back porch the grass is so overgrown next door and there is an old tennis court that is all grown over so not a very pretty view when grilling. We tried to go swimming but the pool and hot tub were both freezing and at night nothing was lit up, the waterfall wasn't working, and there really isn't much shade area to hang out at the pool. I don't see how all the houses in Bella Vista share that little bitty pool during the summer because it is very tiny. I think if you have a small family and are looking to get away for a bit this is perfect, if you dont mind driving to the beach and not having an ocean view.
Brian P. from Floresville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 The house was great, my faimly had a fun time at the pool and on the beach. The beach access road was less than a mile from the house which was nice. The BBQ grill was small though. Only big enough to cook a few burgers. I had to run in to town and buy a webber grill for our ribs we wanted to cook.
A guest from wichita Falls, TX. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 The property is very cute and the layout is very nice. It took a bit to understand the beach access and I had hoped there was Wi-Fi. There were... bug pieces (?) under the master bed pillows but I saw no other signs of any infestation. The recycle trash did not empty on Friday, and there is a list of expected check out requirements. The pool fountain was not on and there were terrible stickers around the pool area. Overall very nice but pricey.
A guest from Irving, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Great place to stay. House looked new and has everything you need. Some of the house decor was a little odd, but furniture was nice. Found some annoying stickers in the rugs. Very nice hot tub. I will be telling people about this great place and will be coming back to the buttercup cottage again.
A guest from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 The home was great, the only problem we had was with the lock on the front door. Somehow even when you unlock it, it is sometimes locked when you try to go back in - make sure you have a key or they will charge you to let you in if it's after hours!
william v. from san antonio, texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 Our family planned a 3 day getaway and this property was perfect. Clean, new, all amenities and more, with space to spread out and relax. Back balcony is perfect at sunrise and sunset, with only the sounds of the wind and water. Will stay here again!
Reviewed by: Kim G. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 This was the picture perfect beach house! We loved everything about it, the only thing I can think of to make it any better would have been if it were right on the beach! We could see the ocean from the upstairs balcony, it was only a glimps but it was still the ocean. We would sit out on the deck at night after we put our daughter to bed and have some drinks and just enjoy the sound of the ocean and the ocean breeze! The house was very clean and had linens, bath towels and everything to cook w but a cookie sheet which we pruchased and left behind. The pool area was great and we had it all to ourselves the whole time we were there. The pool is salt water and the hot tub was heated but not a lot hotter than the pool which we liked because it was hot enough there!The beach road was less than a mile down from the house and was a great location if you don't want to be right in town, which we didn't. It was only about a 10 min drive to town so it didn't bother us at all! It had flat screen tv's in all the rooms w dish tv and dvd players. They had some hangers but not a lot so if you plan on hanging up your shirts you might take some and the grill was one like they have at a camp ground so if you have a protable grill you might want to bring it with you. We had a great time here, it was our daughter's first time to the beach and she turned two while we were there. We will definately be back and hope to rent the same house! We loved everything about it and left our foot prints in the sand...
A guest from Round Rock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 We enjoyed the Buttercup Cottage a great deal, highly recommended for a family getaway. The checkin/checkout process was great (but don't show up too early!) and the staff very nice. The property itself was awesome -- very clean, updated decor, amazingly pleasant for a beach property given the harsh environmental conditions. The pool was very nice, hot tub not so great but June in Texas, who needs it? The location was great, no walking to the beach but the drive is less than a mile -- driving on the beach is permitted with a $12 annual permit. Great TV's, dish network fantastic (NHL draft was awesome!), appliances, washer/dryer -- IMO you just can't beat it. We look forward to our next visit!

Phillip H. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2011 This was a very clean, well maintained house. Also, the management company allowed us to check in early which really helped. 4pm is pretty late for checkin. There are only 3 other houses in the subdivision, so we had the pool all to ourselves. The pool was very nice, but the hot tub did not heat and the waterfalls shown in the picture were not turned on. With that said, I really was looking forward to watching the sunrise while drinking coffee from the "gulf-view" balcony. Describing this house with a "Gulf-view" is a real stretch. You can barely see a glimpse of the water between 2 dunes. Also, it is about 10 miles out of Port A. Had I known the view was almost nonexistent, I would have stayed "in town" and saved $100/night. Plenty of places with no view for $200-250/night.
A guest from Boerne, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 The house was incredibly clean - which was very nice. It has comfortable beds & nice linens. There were no kitchen scrubbers or sponges. The picture of the pool makes it look really big and it is not. There is no beach access, but the drive to the beach was easy. We had a great time on our getaway.
