A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 we fit 11 people in the house comfortably. It was very family friendly and beautifully appointed. I especially appreciated the abundance of fluffy bath towels. The main living area was really conducive to family fun - cooking, chatting, tv watching could all go on at the same time. The pool was close but not noisy. Altogether a lovely stay.
Bonnie H. from Leander, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Our family enjoyed a stay at Watercolor SC to reconnect after my daughter and family have lived out of state for three years. The house met our needs. It was clean and well stocked. The small fence around the house was wonderful and helped to keep our young grandchildren safe. One maintenance and safety concern that we had (and contacted management about) was the fact that the pool was so murky on Thursday that we could not see the bottom (or the children when they swam underwater.) It was cleaned out the next day and by that evening, it was much better. However we lost a day of swimming due to that. The other disappointment was the distance to the beach. It was difficult to gather everyone and get down there and we will prefer to have a house with a boardwalk to the beach in the future. We had hoped to use the bikes but the tires were too low to use. The reservation process, the check in process and our contact with any person along the way was very professional. Thank you for sharing your time and property with us.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 Visited Port A with 10 adults. Property was ideally located for beach access and local restaurants. 5 min walk to supermarket."Port A Escapes" took care of us as usual.
A guest from Edmond, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in October, 2015 This property has many positives. Comfortable,great location, well decorated,close to pool etc. if you plan to cook, not many pots and pans. Bedrooms are not large. Dishwasher is a little hard to figure out. Rental company was great. Everything we called about they took care of immediately.
Karsten B. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 The house and location are fantastic! The house was very clean and has a lot of beds to accommodate several guests. We had three adult couples land two kids with plenty of room for everyone and still have your privacy. All of the bedrooms have a TV which is nice.
Karen T. from Laredo, TEXAS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 We stayed in the Watercolor for our family vacation. The location of the home was ideal in that the back door leads right to the community pool. The house is decorated with a beach theme throughout. Very nice layout and design. We are already making plans to stay for a longer period of time next year!
Elena F. from Kyle, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 Our stay at the water color was absolutely wonderful! We had our little beach wedding on Saturday so we had family coming from everywhere. It was an absolute pleasant beautiful experience. Thanks again Port A Escapes!

Ashley L. from Round Rock, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Watercolor SC2 is a great house. Its super cute and has everything you need. Love the pool area and its only a few blocks from the beach. This is the second time we have stayed in this block of houses and will definitely be back!!!
Gloria A. from Seguin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 The rental was great. I loved the atmosphere of the home and would highly recommend to my friends and family. It was very clean and it had everything we needed.
A guest from Boerne, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 Started off with a very friendly staff and ended with a lot of happy people. We had a great time. Home was very clean and beds were very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.
Al and Diane R. from Otsego, MN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 87 days in January, 2014 Property clean, location great. Management company unprofessional. When we rented this property we were told we would be given first choice for up coming years. They would call us first, before renting it to someone else. Well that didn't happen. When we went to the management company to again rent for 2015 we were told it had been rented for Dec. 2014 and Jan. 2015. When we inquired about being called if someone else wanted to rent the house we were told that there was a change in the personnel and the new personnel was not told about giving the previous renter first choice. We were also told at that time there wasn''t anything in that area for us. Our friends were also staying in the same complex and when they went to inquire about renting for 2015 they were told it's who comes up with the money first. You would think we would at least be given the same story. We were very disappointed in Port Escapes.
Reviewed by: james m. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 It was a beautiful home and we will definitely be back! It was a designers dream home, not only gorgeous but also very comfortable!
Matthew C. from Pflugerville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 The house is great for what it is. A few gripes we had:1. The bikes could not be ridden -- one had a flat tire, and the other had a less than perfect chain.2. The TV that is in the living room worked just fine but the TVs upstairs either didn't work at all or the parental code was set so you couldn't watch anything over TV-14.3. The overall cleanliness was just OK. Many stains on the couches / chairs. Someone wrote "You will die" on the comforter (which was quite comical since we arrived on Friday the 13th).Overall I would recommend this to a family or group of friends.
Barney K. W. from Kerrville, TX. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Port Aransas has been home-away-from-home for more than 40 years. We've stayed in Condos, Houses, and Hotels from one end of the Island to the other. Some of theme are excellent and some not so good. Watercolor SC2 was with out a doubt the BEST place we have ever stayed. Beautiful interior, awesome landscaping, private patio, and a color changing pool. You know what they say: "If you're lucky enough to be at the beach...You're lucky enough!" That's true, however this house made an awesome trip even better!
Patricia M. from Katy, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We very much loved our stay in Watercolor. It is a very clean and accommodating house. Décor is very nice and beachy and it had everything we needed. We would most definitely stay here again!!
Dona C. from Paraland, TX. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 This is a very nice island home with all the conveniences. It truly sleeps 12 in real beds and is close to the beach and all Port A activities. Only downside is the pool is a bit small.
Jennifer H. from Rosenburg, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 This was our 2nd trip w/in 2 months to Port A and 1st booking w/ Port A Escapes, office was EXTREMELY HELPFUL. It was everything I expected and MORE!!! I already want to book another trip.. Will definitely be staying again and would recommend it to other people.
Ruth K. from Madison, Wisconsin recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 Close to town on a quiet street (though perhaps that is not typical, since we were there in off-season). Very nice decor. Appreciated the 1st-floor bedroom and the walk-in shower on the 2nd floor. The view directly to the pool from the LR was nice. Pool is small (depth to 4.5 feet) and clean though unheated. Probably up to 6 kids could play comfortably. We had two in our party, and they were the only ones using it. Good poolside shade. Plenty of parking (3-4 cars). It would be nice if the condo supplied a few boogie boards or inflatable rings or other pool toys. Internet worked well after we found the correct network name and password (the info displayed on the fridge was not correct in 4/2013). We didn't use the TVs/DVD player. Overall, excellent experience in Watercolor!
A guest from Helotes, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 Absolutely beautiful house with tons of amenities. Its was quiet, clean, comfortable and only a few minutes to the beach and all the local stores. We will be back!!
Al and Diane R. from Otsego, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 87 days in January, 2013 We were very happy with our stay for 3 months with two exceptionsFirst: The furnace filter was plugged wih dirt and dust,we went to Ace Hardware and bought their best filter. $20.00Second: under the couch and beds were very dirty with dust and dust bunnies. We vacuumed and srubbed all the floors' We really enjoyed our stay. The people from Port A Escapes are the best Thank you Al and Diane

A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We have stayed at many properties in Port Aransas. We had high expectations for this one, as it was brand new. We thought the house was cute, well decorated, and a good layout, with plenty of seating for all in our party, but we were disappointed in a few things as well. The house didn't seem as clean as some we have stayed at, especially for a brand new property. The pool was very small, crowded and was green and dirty while we were there. The top bunks did not have rails, causing a hazard to our younger ones. The trash can was completely full when we arrived and was never picked up until the morning that we left. It took 24 hours for the downstairs to cool down to a comfortable temperature, and that was even much warmer than the upstairs. We were unable to use the outdoor grill because it was filthy. The complex was very full resulting in late night noise. On a positive note, there were plenty of towels for all guests, a well-stocked kitchen including a pantry to store lots of our food, tvs in all rooms, space for everyone to spread out, an outdoor shower, good location, clean linens and a large patio out back by the pool. We did bring these items to the property management's attention, and we feel confident that they will be corrected.
Kirsten D. from Stephenville, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 We stayed at the Watercolor house from Tuesday, July 17 - Saturday, July 21. The accomodations were fantastic! The decor had to have been done by a decorator - it brings everything from the beach to the in to the house. The beds were so comfortable! One suggestion should you go, the rooms that have bunk beds do not have ceiling fans - take a fan if you are used to them. The AC worked great, but we still would have liked to have a fan. The pool was well kept and perfect for the age range of kids we had attending. The covered patio area by the pool was perfect but could use ceiling fans under there as well. At night the pool had a fun light that changed colors - the kids loved it! There were movies, games, extra blankets provided by the home owners. The entire experience was completely hassle free and we will be back next year!!! Thank you Patrick for all of your help!
A guest from Arlington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 Property was beautiful, although we had to sweep the floor first thing, so floors were not done upon our arrival. Furniture had dog hair before we got there also. We had a great time overall, property mgmt svc were good but person doing walk through upon check out was very rude to us all.
A guest from New Braunfels, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 Wonderful experience - beautiful home that provided everything we needed for a great getaway for the family. Having boat parking was definitely a plus.
A guest from Grand Prairie, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We loved the home and the small community. We usually stay in the Royal Dunes area so we were pleasantly surprised with this find. We will definately return and suggest this property to our friends. My name is spelled Cimberly :)
claudia g. from san antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 This place was absolutely beautiful. It was spacious and had everything you needed in it. The pool was a plus. The only bad thing was one of the bedrooms(the room closest to the garage)had a hard time keeping cool. Overall, this is a place I would definitely come back to.
Jackie R. from Richardson, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 Everything in this home was pristine. The home is perfectly decorated in a fresh coastal theme, immaculately clean, and our every need anticipated. The location was also ideal as it was within walking distance to restaurants and retail as well as a short bike ride (bikes provided) to the beach. We could not have asked for a more perfect getaway. Thank you for your hospitality.
