Family Vacation 2016
A guest from Temple, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 The house was nice, but the pictures were very deceiving. The rooms were much smaller than the pictures showed. The pool looks beautiful & large in the pictures when actually it is tiny. When we arrived our house was so hot, called maintenance, he came & cleaned the coils, added freeon, etc. and told us "This builder does not put in large enough units to properly cool the size& they should have had the air turned down the day before so it would be cool. It took almost 24 hours to get cool enough for us to stay inside. The next day when we showered, the shower in the master bath started leaking water through to the bottom floor which was concrete & the stairs which were wood. It was a steady flow. Called property management again. We were told "OH NO WORRIES, the builder does not put a subfloor in so it does that. WOW, HOW UNSAFE!!!! Two of the bedrooms were so small all you could do was hop in the bed. No room to walk around. Living area was small compared to the pictures. We were so disappointed. We will not stay there again.
A guest from san Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 We had a great time during our stay. The location of the rental allowed us to enjoy the beach during the day and return to the rental to enjoy the pool during the evenings. Great Times
Katie S. from Fort Worth, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 We packed up and headed south for what ended up being a rainy beach vacation however, we had a fantastic time! A lazy few days watching foodtball and playing cards is exactly what we all needed and the house couldn't have been more accomodating. We all discussed coming back down in the summer to stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear you enjoyed your home. Hopefully the weather will cooperate when you are ready to come back.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 We loved the house! It was just the right size for 2 families to enjoy with even a room for the 2 boys! The access to the pool in the back was perfect, the side shower came in handy and the little grill just for us was awesome! It was a bit of a challenge that cable was only available in 2 of the bedrooms and living room. Would have been nice to have in the kids room as no one really has DVDs anymore. Also, would recommend putting things like the extra trash bags, dishwasher tabs, sponges and coffee filters in some sort of welcome basked when you come in. That way people know it's there. We went and bought some because we didn't know it was provided. Also, with the price of the house, would be nice if they provided a small container of laundry detergent for people staying over 2 days so they could wash towels. The pool was great, but a little crowded on the weekend in the evening with adults who were drinking and a bit rowdy so kids couldn't drink. But during the day and after Sunday, it was perfect. Only other recommendation would be to put a path through the rocks by the garage like to the pool. Those rocks are tough on your feet. But overall, we would definitely stay here again!
A guest from Pflugerville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Great space, clean complex, walking distance to shops bars and grocery store, 5 minute drive to beach! Perfect size and location!
Pam G. from Benbrook, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 My family and I really enjoyed our 7 day stay. The house was lovely and well arranged. The pool was a bit small for the number of people, but the kids enjoys it.
A guest from Early, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 Our rental home was the perfect match for our family! The bedrooms were very comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms! Kitchen was awesome too! Was pleased with the large TV with blu-ray player and surround sound. We were initially skeptical about not being closer to the beach but it was so easy and only took about 5 minutes to drive there on a golf cart. I would highly recommend the Jack Sparrow rental!
A guest from Plymouth, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 86 days in December, 2014 Great location and was very well stocked. Furniture was good could use a new mattress in master bedroom other then that we enjoyed everything about it. If we had any problems port escapes came right over. Bena
Rebecca G. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 We had a party of 7 total for an end of the summer vacation. The house was amazing. Great location to shopping, bars, restaurants, and the beach. The pool was nice, quiet, and well maintained. We all agree it was well worth the price and we will be back.
Tarah H. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Four couples and our children stayed for three nights at this well maintained house and had a BLAST! The kitchen was great for making meals for everyone and we loved the swimming pool being right out the back door. The bedrooms upstairs were a bit small, but you aren't in them long so it wasn't a deal breaker. Location was great as it was VERY close to grocery store, shops, golf cart rental, etc. The drive to the beach was less than five minutes and the outdoor shower made it great for rinsing bodies and beach items after a long day. I highly recommend this rental and hope to stay here again!
Reviewed by: Nicole M. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We had 3 small families stay and it was great. Adults each got a room and the kids stayed in the bunk room. The kids had a great time at the pool everyday. The beach is a further walk than the map shows--it was too far to walk with small children so we ended up driving.
Angela D. from Waco, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 We love our vacation and the location that the house was in next to everything beach,stores and restaurants and the pool was located right outside back so we could watch the kids swim. The staff at PAE was great something's needed to be fixed we informed staff that 2 rooms did not have cable they only played dvds and that was a down fall because the kids had to go to our room to watch cable, staff said they will look into it. In all my family had a WONDERFUL!! Time jack sparrow is a nice home. We give them 2 thumb up:) as they would say 5 star
A guest from Harlingen, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Nice place. The carpets were dirty but there was a vacuum in the pantry. Ran out of trash bags pretty soon so I guess we should have furnished our own. Port A Escapes is a good company, professional. Lots of money but the AC worked fine
A guest from Jacksonville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Forgot about the ferry and was late getting to office for the keys, of course you plan ahead and I was able to get them out of the combination lock box at your office. We really had a great time, I don't know how many times my grandsons commented on what a great house it was...and they loved having the pool out the back door to enjoy as well as the awesome beach. We fished the pier(real close to the house)we rented 6-passenger golf cart, paddle board, surf board (2 sizes adult n child)etc.. Love the IGA grocery store in town and all the really neat souvenir places, really close to Corpus Christi and took a side trip there and went to USS Lexington and WOW the awesome Aquarium next to the Lexington...all in all the past 8 years of family vacations this one was voted the all time favorite. Thanks for being a part of it.
Melissa H. from Victoria, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 We had an amazing time at the house! Property Management was friendly and helpful, they even brought us a broom when we couldn't find one in the house! The Cement floors are beautiful, but very slippery when little ones are coming in from the pool, make sure to dry their feet!! We had 4 adults and 5 children at the house and we all slept comfortably. The beds were great and I loved the televisions in the bedrooms so the kids could watch movies upstairs while the adults relaxed downstairs. Will definitely stay here again!
Michael W. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 Roaches, few minor things like door bell just buzzed non stop until in was unplugged. Garage door screws pulled out. Over all, I would stay there again. Well, after the roaches are taken care of.
A guest from Wylie, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Inside property was not so clean. Dust and dirt under tables. Rug in living room was dusty. Some frying pans were too old. House was not so close to beach to walk. For the rate paid, I truly found property not worth it.
jennifer A. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 We loved our stay at Jack Sparrow! Great House, Great pool (except for the gang of children that hogged it everyday), great location in town and in relation to beach access. The house was in pristine condition and very comfy for 8 adults. Had a small A/C issue when we arrived but property managers had repair man arrive within 5 minutes of our call. Awesome!! I can't wait to go back to Port A and stay at Jack Sparrow : )
A guest from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 It rained on Sat. night and there is no grass or stepping stones to get to the house from the driveway. Large stones or grass would of kept mud from tracking in the house as we were loading up the car to leave. Also maybe put a box fan in the closet for light sleepers. There was a wedding party that was load till 1:00am.
A guest from Avon, SD recommends this property. Stayed for 44 days in January, 2013 This home is located within walking distance of anything downtown- the grocery store, shops, the Jelm center, and the beach. The beds are comfortable. The living room chairs not so much. Otherwise everything was good. The property was well mantained,and all our requests were taken care of promptly.
Margret G. C. from Beaver Falls, P.V recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2012 This is the second Thanksgiving Holiday we have spent at Jack's Sparrow and we love it! This year there were six of us and we cooked dinner at the Condo and were very pleased with the kitchen supplies (well, the electric mixer needs replaced) but other than that it was great! The beds are so comfortable, I loved the kitchen, there is lots of room gather in the living room, the pool is fabulous (my personal favorite)and the beach is within walking distance. The town offers lots to do and the restaurants were wonderful; we didn't have a bad meal the whole time we were there! In the future, we would like to spend a month in Port Aransas! Thank you to Port Aransas Escapes and the town of Port Aransas for a great vacation!
Samual W. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 My family usually stays at a different vacation spot,we tried this condo and love it so clean and spacious love the downstairs also and bedrooms upstairs just guest bathroom was small for us but parking is enough and garage space to love that the pool is right in back of the condo so I could monitor my daughters while I cooked breakfast and lunch and not for at all from souvier shops and resturants...we will so be booking for next yr.
A guest from Fredericksburg, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Jack's Sparrow was everything we had hoped for. When selecting a place over the internet there is always a fear of it not meeting expectations once seen in person. This place did not disappoint and actually exceeded our expectations. It has tons of space and could sleep up to 10, including one of the couch, very comfortably. The pool is right outside the back door and they even have a charcoal grill for this house alone. If I was going to nitpick, I would say the grass needs to be grown in between the driveway and the front door to provide a little cleaner access. Also, stepping stones could be added in the gravel around the side and back. We also noticed several areas of ants on the outside that should probably be sprayed. Don't get me wrong, these are only suggestions to make the place perfect not deal breakers by any stretch.Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anybody needing lodging in Port A. Guests should be aware that the beach access is about about two minutes away through a very easy drive. You can walk there by going straight down the front road towards the coast where you'll find a little walkway between two fences. However, the drive isn't bad since most people have all their stuff in the car anyway. A beach parking/driving permit is $12 for the current year. Some recommendations for food. The marina has several great bar hang-outs and dining options. It's also a good spot for walking around or renting jet skis and parasail trips. We heard rave reviews about the La Playa Mexican restaurant but couldn't get in. However, we did eat at the Venetian Hot Plate which was very tasty. They're known for the lasagna but it was sold out by the time we ordered. Call ahead to reserve a your own serving which is what the table next to us did.
A guest from Cedar Park, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 We enjoyed that the downstairs had a large open floor plan. There were plenty of beds for 8 adults and 2 kids, but I wouldn't stay here with any larger of a group. The pool was nice and convenient!
A guest from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this home is. The pool is very close and convenient. Quiet neighborhood and great location. Loved the decor and beds were super comfortable.
A guest from Pflugerville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Overall we had a nice stay in this rental. The property was clean and in a great location. The only problems we had were that 2 of the TV can only be used for DVD's and not enough living room sitting.
A guest from Sturgis, SD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 Loved the layout. It was very child and pet friendly. We had a great family vacation. However, I hope they get the plumbing in the Master bedroom working better. A plunger by the toilet is a bad sign.
James W. from Wimberley, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2012 Because this was a new house there was several problems that need to be ironed out. The main bedrooms bathroom toilet was backed up and at 2.00 am I had to unblock the toilet as it was overflowing. The a/c would not go below 76. We live in the hill country and a working A/C is a must. Also the kitchen electrical sockets wouldn't let you plug anything in it
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 We had the max number of guests and it slept everyone very comfortably! The little fenced in area around the house was nice for grilling out and the house was in a great location. It was also nice that all of the bed rooms were upstairs separate from the living area and kitchen. Would definitely stay here again!
A guest from Dripping Springs, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 Nice property with plenty of space for family and friends. The only thing that would have made this house better wiould be more outdoor space. It was a little far from the beach for walking with kiddos, but the drive was quick.
Christie P. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 Loved this house and it was very clean I'm very particular where I stay and I just say this house was clean and very relaxing and close to everything.
Chris C. from Garland, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2011 We stay with Jack Sparrow for Thanksgiving. This is a beautiful house in a great location. We were able to walk to the beach and to the restaurants. The house is brand new and sleeps our 9 easily. Looks much better inside than outside. PortAEscapes management were friendly and helpful. We can't wait to stay here again.
Andrea C. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2011 Wonderful stay! Lovely home, very clean, great location! Plan to stay again. Port A escapes was very professional and helpful!!
A guest from Buda, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 Our stay was great. The house was beautiful and relaxing. The clothes washer and dryer was a life saver. Also, no matter how loud the other guest from the other houses were at the pool; the noise never travled to the inside of the house, seemed to be very well insulated. I would recomend this place to anyone i hear going to Port Aransas. We loved it.
Omar O. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 We stayed for 3 nights 4 days and had a great time! If you have pets, this is a perfect place because there's a fenced area for your dog to hang out unleashed.
A guest from Lavernia, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 Our family had a great time. Jacks Sparrow was very nice and clean. The price was great for the size of the house and the amount of people it could sleep. I would recommend this house to my family and friends. Thank you
