Unique Beach House
A guest from Fair Oaks Ranch, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2014
The Birdcage is a wonderful property on the beach. You walk in & the decor gives you the beachy vibe instantly. The house was spotless and just steps from the beach which was awesome. We are a family of 5 and unless your kids like sleeping together you will have someone sleeping on the couch, which really didn't work for us. A bunk bed would be a nice addition to the kids room. The well water is not drinkable and really smells terrible. The bathrooms have no towel racks, so towels end up on the floor. The master bedroom has a great view of the sunrise, but there are no window treatments so forget about sleeping in a little on your vacation. With one additional room I would return. Heater was broken first night but management sent a repair man the next day.

Peter McFarlane
Peter M. from Frederickburg, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014
We LOVED the place, and, had a really great experience. A couple of things, though. We had to buy everything pertaining to food, ie. spices, etc. Wish it had been just a little more stocked. Also, we were disappointed that we were unable to use the stereo system. It was just sitting there teasing us as we are big music lovers. We did try to contact you during our stay with no response. Overall, however, we would definitely stay there again.

Pros and Cons
A guest from Battersea, Lonson recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013
Positives:Close to the beach.Kitchen was well equipped.Bathroom was a good size.Great sitting on the deck. Negatives: Lack of curtains in both the bedroom and the bathroom made the feeling of privacy an issue.The master bed was very noisy with even the slightest move, which made for an disturbed night. Bedding was minimal,I would advise to take your own along.Used towels had been left on the washing machine by previous guests.

Great Location but some problems
laurel p. from austin, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013
This property is in a perfect location, right on the beach. It has been remodeled and is very cute and comfortable. You are paying for the location and it is worth it if you want a true beachfront property. I would normally give this property 5 stars if it were not for the problems we had... first, the water smelled so bad that our guests did not even want to take showers. I believe it is an issue with the water heater. We were just there for the weekend, but I would feel horrible for anyone paying for a week and having to deal with this. I rent vacation homes several times a year when we travel and do the same with our homes and would expect a problem like this to get fixed or money be refunded. Second, the tv was not working. This would normally not be a big problem but we had a rainy weekend and kids stuck in the house. We let the management company know and they said they were sending someone to fix it but never did even after repeated calls. They offered to let us check out late because of our problems but on a rainy day it didn't make much sense for us to stay an extra hour in a house with no tv. Hopefully these problems were fixed for future renters. We were disappointed that they did not take care of them sooner so that we could have enjoyed our stay.

The house was everything it was described to be in the advertisement. My only suggestion would be to put a single door on the front bathroom instead of the bi-door.

Beach escape.
A guest from Amarillo, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013
I would have given a 5 star rating except the first night the AC roared so loud it vibrated the floor and walls. Port A Escapes did send someone out the next day and fixed it. The patio door off the master was broken so we couldn't open it. The pocket doors into the master bath were stuck so you couldn't close them when the bath was occupied, plus the lights from the housing behind shone into the bath,and reflected off the mirrors into your eyes. I didn't learn of this until the last day. There was a counter top ice maker that didn't work.

Fantastic Easter Weekend
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013
We loved our stay at the Bird Cage and can't wait to return. You can't beat the location (right on the beach). We liked the way the house is furnished and it was very comfortable. The kitchen had most everything we needed. Loved the bathrooms! We want to make going to the Bird Cage a tradition for our family.

First of many beach trips to Port A
Eric L. from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013
The Bird Cage was exactly what we were looking for in a family spring break house. The kids had a blast, being able to walk to the beach. We loved the seclusion in the dunes and the views were breath taking. The recent renovations made it extremely comfortable. I would have enjoyed the ice machine working and perhaps the underneath deck area to be cleaned a bit, in order to use the outdoor shower. Overall - Perfect. We'll be back to Port A.

Great location, nice house, a few issues.
Margo S. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013
First let me say the location on the beach is terrific, we loved walking right out the door to the ocean. The house is decorated nicely and it was clean. There were a few issues: We found mouse and rat traps scattered under the kitchen sink and to the side of the fridge, luckily they did not go off while we were there, but it was rather unsettling to think about. The other issue was the awful sulfer smell coming from the faucets, I guess from the well water? In all fairness both of these issues could be temporary, and they did not ruin our enjoyment for the weekend.

Nice Place, Great View. Encountered Unwanted Visitors
Nathan B. from Pleasant Hill, Iowa does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013
Beautiful view. We loved being on the beach. The management company had not properly inspected the home before arrival. Toilet,dishwasher and television were the first problems we encountered. We also observed "mouse droppings" so we thought. We contacted the management and they immediately responded to the toilet issue and placed mouse traps. The second day the repairman came to look at the dishwasher. This is when we discovered it was not a mouse but a RAT! The next repairman came and placed rat traps under the under sink cabinets. NOW, you can imagine the intense waiting and checking each hour to see if the rat was caught. Since the rat was seen under the dishwasher, we took matters into our own hands. We moved one rat trap under the dishwasher and while doing this, we saw the rat resting where he could be reached, so my husband stabbed the rat with a knife. The rat ran out of site "under the dishwasher" so we blocked the lower cabinets with kitchen chairs in hopes of keeping the rat blocked from escaping into the rest of the house. We then continued our stay even though the fear of stepping on a rat in the dark of night was something we forced ourselves to do because of the money we paid to stay there. NOTE: The Rat was Never Caught or Seen Again After Stabbing It With The Knife). "" They did give us one night free for putting up with the rat" (Thank You Port A Escapes). It's a beautiful home with a great view but the management company needs to do a better job of ensuring the beach home is ready for renting before allowing you to stay in it. The Description needs to include the fact that the facility uses WELL WATER ONLY to warn renters that may be allergic. They planned to replace the dishwasher but their response to our rodent problem was "It's the dunes. That's just part of being on the beach." In other words you should just expect the possibility of unwanted visitors. We enjoyed our visit to the area but will not stay at this beach house if we return.

Sand, Sea and Sunrise
Dawn B. from Campbell, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012
This home on the beach was a wonderful escape! It was very clean and nicely decorated. We four were more into cooking at home, so we would have appreciated a better stocked kitchen for cookware, but we managed. The staff of Port A Escapes were quite nice and when we had an issue with the hvac system it was taken care of in a timely manner. There were a few maintenance issues, including the front door and the fireplace, that should have been attended to before our arrival. Also, garbage and recycle cans were not provided on the property.

Ann L. from Katy, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012
The pictures do not do this house justice. It was far roomier than it appear with beautiful decorating touches through out. The location could not have been more perfect! We set up our tent for shade on the beach, and made short walks back to the house for food and drinks so we did not have to pack and transport coolers to the beach. Added entertainment were the parachute jumpers that would land a few hundred yards from us during the day!!!

Review of OTB3202 "The Bird Cage"
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 1 days in April, 2012
The house is nice and the location is as advertised, "on the beach". The house was clean. The view is only a partial view of the Gulf because the house is 1 story and the deck is not elevated so sand dunes constitute a major portion of the view. The deck is not covered. The management company is friendly and competent. Unfortunately, the TV system was not working (Dish Network) so we experienced inconvenience as a result of our rental. The management company representative personally came to the house and attempted to resolve the TV problem but was unable to do so. I feel the management company should have been aware of this TV problem prior to our visit. In summary, I would recommend the management compnay and the house to a friend with the caveat that the friend personally visit the house prior to renting so that there wouldn't be any unmet expectations re view, deck, etc.

Wonderful vacation
A guest from dripping springs, texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012
You can't beat the location. The house is bright and airy. We spent a lot more time at the beach that we normally do because it was so close. I liked watching the different birds fly in for feeding times and seeing crab tracks in the sand in the morning close to the house. Sunrise is gorgeous. We also liked that the house is so close to town also. We could be at a shop in 10 minutes. So we got alot of beach and shopping time. We did not want to come home! We will definietly book again!

Super Relaxing Attention to Details
Richard B. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in February, 2012
Loved the well stocked kitchen, and loved all the little touches throughout the house that really made a difference. We truly felt like we were borrowing someone's home. Waking up to the palm tree sunrise and sand dunes just outside the master is wonderful. My favorite besides the deck, was the large bathroom in the master that has an awesome corner shower tiled with pebble stone. The sand dune driveway offers good privacy and direct beach access.
