Jim S. from Buda, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 This place is great. You can walk to the beach or it has a great pool for kids. We have always met such nice people at this site. We highly recommend staying here.
Jeri U. from Lawrence, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Our family (3 families) meet here for our annual vacation. There were 5 adults and 6 kids. This unit was perfect as each family had a bedroom and bath. The living space was very spacious. The patio also added more space for visiting and meals.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear you enjoyed your spacious condo and its outdoor patio. Just give us a call when you are ready to come back.
jennifer w. from norman, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Several girlfriends and I recently rented this unit for 4 days for our annual "Girl's Only Getaway" Overall, we were happy with our stay. The unit is located on the ground floor of a small condominium complex, which we found to be very convenient in terms of carrying in luggage, groceries, beach equipment, etc. It was clean and very spacious. The beds were comfy and the unit easily slept all 9 of us. The kitchen was updated and well-equipped with utensils, dishes, etc. The living/dining area is on the small side, but we made it work on the couple of occasions we were all in the same place at the same time. The location of the unit in relation to the beach and pool was ideal. It is maybe a 3 minute walk to the pool and a 5-7 minute walk down to the beach. The only negative issue we had during our stay was that the WiFi went down for an entire day (a full 24 hours) and, despite calling the "emergency" number provided (which was an answering service as our call was made outside of their office hours), no one ever called back. As several of us had small work-related issues that came up during that time, this was a real inconvenience. Now, it did eventually come back up, but we just sort of figured this out on our own through repeatedly trying to get on. Still, over all, the unit was perfect for our needs and we enjoyed our stay there. We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Frances G. from Smithville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 we enjoyed the condo. The condo had more than enough space for our family. The condo was clean and neat, with sturdy furniture for children.
Linda W. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Our stay was just awesome. Our mouths dropped open when we entered the condo and saw all of the amenities and how beautifully decorated it is. The floor plan is perfect! And being within 2 minute walking distance from the beach was beyond wonderful. The swimming pool is perfect, everything is neatly kept, and clean; and the neighbors were wonderful and friendly. We were so impressed with our stay and this specific unit that we made reservations to stay in the same unit again during 2017 over the 4th of July....but booked a little longer stay next time.:-) We're thinking about making this an annual ritual. Management of the property were outstanding. They called and let me know our place was clean and ready 5 hours before our approved check-in time. This was our first experience and set the tone for the remainder of our stay. I can't say enough great this about Port Aransas Escapes...they truly deliver legendary customer service, from the time the reservations are made; reminder when your stay begins and remained in touch during our stay. Any emails or communications were instantly responded to. This is the way to run a business!!! I will most definitely recommend using Port Aransas Escapes to anyone wanting to rent property in Port Aransas!
A guest from Fort Mill, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 Super clean!!! We were last minute renters - Port A Escapes folks were extremely helpful and accommodating. Let me say again, Super clean!! Very helpful and accommodating!
Luz M. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 The condo was nice and cozy and there was plenty of space for all 9 of us. The kitchen was stocked with all the dishes and appliances and the washer and dryer came in handy for after the beach. We had a blast!
Judy T. from Spring Branch, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2015 The Condo was beautiful and we we're so shocked at how close it was to the beach, the axcess was so easy. We had a wonderful stay and have decided to make it an annual trek for us 3 couples. The condo was so clean and had everything we needed and then some. Thank you for making my best friends "50th" birthday party the best birthday she has ever had
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your condo along with its location. Happy 50th Birthday! Hope to see you back for number 51!
A guest from San Antonio, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2015 We arrived to a 3 bedroom at Grand Caribbean. The minute we walked in we could tell something was wrong. The aid conditioner was out, then we noticed the sliding glass door was cracked all the way through from side to side. we called the property management, and the sent their maintanence man. He had to call the owners to get ok to call air conditioner repair. They couldn't fix it till the next work day, Monday. The management called about and hour later and said they were sorry, and moved us to The Lost Colony. It was nice, but by then the week end was downhill. Sorry, never again.
Bernie P. from Universal City, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 The rental was in good shape and decorated very nicely. This particular room was a wee nicer than a room we stayed in before. We always have liked it here and have enjoyed our stay. Nice pool and a short walk to beach, which by the way was perfect. Area was immaculate, best I have seen. Plenty of room to ourselves to relax and play.
Inga M. from Round Rock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 My family loved the short walk to the beach (3-5 minutes) and free parking for your car on the beach (no sticker required for the Grand Carrebean guests). Overall, the condo was good. We had no hot water the first day but as soon as we reported it to the management, it was promptly fixed. There were also missing springs in the sofa bed that we had to use, which we also mentioned to the maintenance crew. The issue wasn't resolved during our stay, but hoping it will be for the next guests. The carpet had a few stains, and a sliding closet door in one of the bedrooms was broken. I am not nitpicking, just expected everything to work for the money spent. We loved the location so we would definitely come back!
A guest from Fulshear, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 1st time to rent a Condo and it was the best! Reservation, payment, check in, so easy and quick. The property was as pictured and better! Plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy. Pool, beach and views were great. Love, Love, Love it!!! Will be returning again and again!!
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 Management very helpful, receptive. Location lovely and right on a clean, gorgeous beach. Accommodations spacious and comfortable for 6 adults and 2 toddlers. We will be returning to the Grand Carribean!
A guest from College Station, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 From finding the listing on through VRBO to receiving the confirmation from Port Aransas Escapes to paying online, everything went extremely smoothly! Unit 1001 at Grand Carribean was perfect for our family! The unit was fresh, well furnished, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is huge relative to the unit, as is the master suite. However, the other areas (two guest bedrooms and living room) worked out just fine. It was super to have three bathrooms on the days when all 8 of us were there. Grand Carribean is a clean, quiet complex. The only amenities are a pool and the walk-way to the beach. That's all we needed and so we were very pleased. The wireless internet in our unit worked very well, lots of television stations, nice patio area away from the pool. Push button door code was a great feature. No keys to keep up with. Yea! We will stay here again and recommend this to friends.
Melissa W. from Georgetown, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Our stay at Grand Caribbean was outstanding! The property was very clean and well maintained. The pool was nice with a large area for younger children. Easy walk over the bridge to the beach.
A guest from Fredericksburg, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Our first trip to Port A was awesome! The Grand Caribbean was perfect... everything we needed and more with a short walk to the beach. Our condo was clean, spacious, and provided all of the amenities. The beach was clean and not crowded at all. We will definitely be returning.
Tammy B. from San Antonio, TEXAS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 We loved the room, it was very spacious with enough bathrooms for each of our three couples. The kitchen was great with several serving items and good coffee pot. Having a nice washer and dyer on site was perfect!We will definetly recommend to our friends. We had one issue with A/C and the onsite manager came and addressed the problem right away.
A guest from Hico, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 Awesome experience with son, daughter-in-law and 4 grandchildren from Indianapolis who had never been on Texas coast. Perfect timing for wild flowers and clear waters of the gulf.
Rosa M. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 First of all, the Staff was very friendly and helpful, the location was perfect, just a walk to the beach, the swimming pool behind our balcony, the condo was beautiful and very clean. We couldn't get internet, we called the office and their staff was there in 10 minutes and problem fixed. We were a group of 8 and everyone loved it.....we will definitely come back......
A guest from Arlington, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2014 Other than having to reclean the floors and scrub the tub and have The carpets professionally cleaned it was a great escape. Location was good and the pool area is really clean and relaxing. The condo we got (3 bedroom) was HUGE. The decor was all made in China but believe me there was plenty to look at on the walls. Each condo is individually owned.
Kim H. from Round Rock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014 We didn't get the room we booked however the one we did get was even better! Shout out to Sylvia who booked our stay and was amazing!! Answered all my questions no matter how many times I called! We will be back!!!!
Susana V. from Waco, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Everything was exceptional. Plenty of room for three families! Great walk to the beach and pool was nice too! Property was kept very clean. Our condo GC 1001 was fully stocked. It had all the appliances we needed. Only one problem for us it didn't have a kid safe lock on front door. My 3 year old could open the door and get out, even when the door was manually locked.
A guest from Seguin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 Had a relaxing weekend with family. Great location, kids all loved the rental, great space for the cost. Loved the board walk to beach. Only thing is that this facility does not clean up the seaweed on the beach like other resorts we have stayed in.
Steve T. from Liberty Hill, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Best furnished rental I've stayed in ever! easy walk to the beach...plenty of parking... excellent kitchen equipment...perfect AC...awesome Samsung smart flat screen with selection of bluerays...quiet end unit.
Jim S. from Rockwall, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 This was a very well kept property that was perfect for a family of 7. The pool was perfect for young kids and the walk to the beach was easy I would recommend this place and would stay again
Phyllis F. from Austin, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 This was our second year coming to Grand Caribbean. Our family grew in the past year, so we added a second unit to our rental. We ended up with eight adults and seven kids...and it was great! The proximity to the beach, private boardwalk over the dunes, and awesome pool were fantastic. We are already planning to return again next year and hope to make this our permanent annual week long get away! I have referred a friend from work, and his family is there right now! Can't wait to hear if they love it as much as we did.
Heather A. from Belton, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 This was our first time to Port A and we were not disappointed! The condo was super comfortable for our family of 5 (we could have had more people stay with us, the place was HUGE!). We spent half the days on the beach and half at the pool. Great set up for families with kiddos! We will be coming back and staying at this condo :)
Jill M. from Marble Falls, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 Three generations enjoyed our stay at the Grand Caribbean. Short walk to the beach and a great pool! It was a home away from home.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 We stayed for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The size was perfect for our group of seven. Our family of five and two grandparents had plenty of room. The roll-away cot was perfect for our youngest. We didn't have to pull out the couch, which was nice. The decor is very beachy - not necessarily our favorite style, but comfortable enough. All of the units in the building face the beach, which is great. We decided that it you are on the ground floor like this unit is then the location is ideal since it's not right on the pool. There is more privacy and it's definitely more quiet. We could occasionally hear a child running around in the unit above us, but it's kind of expected when you stay in an apartment or condo with units above you. The DSL was out for a day or so, but we're pretty sure it wasn't the fault of the wireless router in the unit. It was likely the cause of the DSL provider. The beach was really nice and much quieter than the areas near the massive condos like La Mirage. I would highly recommend walks on the beach at night. Overall, we really enjoyed the place and would stay again.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 We love it because it is so convenient to the beach. The balcony is great for relaxing any time of the day and the swimming pool is clean. It would be nicer to get in earlier as our food had to sit in coolers under the sun for quite a while.
Art R. from SA, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 We've been going to Port A for many years and i can't beleive we didn't find this place sooner. Everything was great. We were surprised how afforable an awesome 3BD, 3BATH so close to the beach could be. We can't wait to go back.
The stay was great Family enjoyed it, so I was happy about that
Sharon Y. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 The view was great next time we would like to stay on the second floor so the view can be awesome, the pool was out standing,the boardwalk to the beach was great, the children loved it, the adults had a grand timeif any body have a large Family you want to stay here just because its a great place.
Bryan N. from Lago Vista, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 Unhappy with the fact that I called about the outside electrical outlet was not working thus we could not play music? no one got back to us? We will not use this business when we book again!
Family getaway, with everyone doing their favorite thing.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 Home away from home with some extras and breathtaking views, with so many things to do. Beachcombing, swimming and BBQing isthe way to go. But just being with family is priceless.
Karen A. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 Great proximity to the beach- just a 3 min. walk. Tons of room in the condo, which would have easily accomodated 2-3 more kids on sleeping bags were the headcount allowed. Only complaint was that the other guests around the pool on Saturday were inconsiderate. Two different groups played load music (not the same music)and shouted at each other (fighting.)
Rosa A. D. from Laredo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 The beach was very clean. On sat nite, the upstairs renters were very noisy but once everyone left Sunday it was very nice and peaceful
Ana P. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 We had a great time! The location of the property is perfect and the condo has all amenities needed. The only issue we had was WiFi assess for one day only and we were there for 6.
Ideal Location For A Beach Getaway With The Grandkids
James C. from Saldo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 This three bedroom condo was very nicely furnished, spacious, has a great floor plan, and located at a great spot at the very end of the building on tne ground floor, and was quiet. The pool was ideal for children and fenced with a gate at the pool opening directly on to the boardwalk to the beach. All condos have an ocean view. Property was well-maintained.
