1st Annual Cousin Retreat "2016"
Melissa P. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 We had a great time! Everything was perfect for us. There were 18 of us and we had both sides. Enough room for all of us to stay, and it was a very clean place. We would like to go back to the same place and house again. It was in a great location, close to stores, close to the beach, etc. Couldn't ask for anything more. "Perfect"
Arnold A. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 We enjoyed our stay at Aruba 2. It was great having the pool right out the back door. The beds were comfortable and the kichen qas great. My only suggestion is to maybe add a mop and change the mattress on the futon. Thanks Padre escapes
Mary T. from State College, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 We rented both sides of Aruba Beach and it was Great! Everything we needed was there and the pool access was amazing!
Diana G. from Pasadena, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 We rented both sides for our group of 17. Loved the fact that kitchen and living areas are downstairs plus one or more bedrooms. All but one of the bedrooms have either king or queen beds - bunk for 4 in the other one, plus futons and sleeper sofas. TVs in all bedrooms and living rooms - even in the upstairs hallways where the futons are. Convenient for my son who is in a wheelchair. Pool right in back. Only drawback is it is shared by several other units. Only about 2-1/2 blocks from the beach (easy walk). Large parking lot right next to the beach with ramps going down to the beach. Lots of places to eat and Schlitterbahn only about a mile away.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2016 The condo was great. We had 13 people in our party. We all had a place to sleep place was very clean and well kept. The only things I would have like to see would be cleaning items. Broom and or vacuum so we could tidy up. More kit ken supplies like a cutting board, good can opener, etc. other then that things were awesome. Would definetly stay there again. Rental property staff were so polite and helpful as well.
Eric G. from San Antonio, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 Should consider that we bring families with children to these places, it was great but to sit children to eat on tall stool is inconsiderate. I hade an 8 year old that her foot got caught in the middle of the stool trying to get off when she finished her dinner, then fell 3 feet to the cement ground, fell folded on her spine while her foot still caught on the stooland screamed her lungs out in Pain. Please bring down the dining table, we had toddlers that needed to eat at a table as well. Doors on some rooms did not lock, we did not receive an emergency key besides the keypad code and got locked out, it happened while going to beach thru back door, a guest locked d door with pad lock and went out the back and locked d bottom one, yes it happens. almost calling a locksmith on a Saturday but managed to open it, laundry door handle slips off. Ice machine in tefrigerator had a melted block of ice in d chute and had to take it out so it can work.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC We hate to hear a little one fell and got hurt, we hope she's OK and we'll certainly pass along your feedback to the owner. That's the first we've heard of such an incident there. There is a shorter patio table with shorter chairs that would be ideal for kids. We will also make sure the laundry doors, ice maker and bedroom doors are functioning properly. If any of these issues were reported during your stay we would've been happy to address them. We appreciate your feedback and we will use it to improve our services for future guests.
A guest from Colorado Springs, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 We rented both Aruba units for our family reunion of 22 people. As far as space went it was excellent. The location was very good, unfortunate for us there was a red tide that week, so we didn't utilize the close beach access. There was plenty of bedding and towels, and the pool made up for our red tide issue in the ocean. I did have a very huge issue with the cleanliness. the floors turned our feet a fuzzy black within four hours. the toilets looked clean on the outside but inside black mold! The dishes were also dirty. And some of the bedding were even dirty. That upset me the most because I was charged a cleaning fee for both units. why should I be charged if I'm walking into filth?
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC We apologize for the cleaning issues you had to deal with. That is certainly not up to our usual standard. The floors have been an issue for us and we will be addressing them next month. We'll notify the cleaners of the toilet, dishes, and bedding issues and work on improving them. We again apologize for the issues you had to deal with but we do appreciate your feedback.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 We had a great time. The place was clean and had everything we need it. We could have used more pots and pans since we were a large group. Overall we had a great time ??
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC I think you got the rating system wrong. 5 stars is good 1-2 stars is bad. You gave us 1-2 stars on everything but you say had a good time and recommend it to others. Glad you had a great time though. We'll get some more pots and pans in there. Thanks for the feedback.
Brenda G. from deer creek, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 The rental was great!! The location was perfect. Close to the beach, within walking distance. Clean, with spacious rooms. Enjoyed the pool very much! The kitchen could use a few more utensils, a hand mixer, more towels and more pot holders. But all in all its a great place to spend your vacation at. I have and will recommend it to others. The people at Padre Escapes, are friendly and willing to accommodate you in any way.. TY for a great stay..
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC Thank you for the feedback, we'll work on getting a few more utensils in there for you.
Mindy H. from Troy, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 The house was awesome!!!! The staff was great. They checked on us from time to time. I couldn't have asked for a better stay!!!!
A guest from York, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 Beautiful place and location was perfect. Pool was wonderful and the gated area was a perfect spot for the little ones. We rented both sides to accommodate are large group and we had plenty of room. The beach was a block away and the location was close to other attractions. Even the rain didn't put a damper on our stay. Wonderful place!
Judy M. from Hurst, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014 We celebrated Christmas and Anniversaries for 5 days at Aruba Escape 1 & 2. There were 18 of us and the location was the best! The kiddos got to go to the beach, swim in the pool, and play in an area that allowed the adults to still watch football games.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC Great to hear everything went so well! Thank you for the feedback. We're looking forward to your return!
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 Nice beach house but not a walking distance to the beach. Convenient to the beach though.It would be better if the check-out time were in the afternoon.
Mike R. from Grand Prarie, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 CONDO APPEARED NEAT & CLEAN, HOSE TO WASH OFF WHEN RETURNING FROM BEACH WAS GREAT,as was washer & dryer in condo, KIDS ENJOYED POOL, access to cleaning supplies(brooms, mops) would be a help inside during the stay, only problem was floor dirty to walk on
A guest from highlands ranch, Colorado does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 This rental was in a good location and we liked the house but it was infested with ants and the property manger did not respond to our calls to take care of the problem.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC I apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately those sugar ants can be an issue at times here on the island, it's a never-ending battle but we did drop off ant spray for you and we have had regular treatment of the property.
A guest from Plano, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 Could have used a trash receptacle instead of having to walk our trash over to a dumpster on the other side of the swimming pool. Also, could have used a fly swatter. Otherwise it was an enjoyable stay.
Beatrice E. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 very nice place. Short walk to the beach and when you don't want to be at the beach you can enjoy the pool and barbecuing. the only thing that we did not have were utensils for barbecuing and something to make pancakes and heat tortillas on. . other than that it was perfect. We just love to cook and eat!! Our family will be back and sure to let others know about this location.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC We have added utensils for barbecuing since your comments. Thank you very much for the feedback and helping us to improve the properties.
A guest from Hobbs, New Mexico recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 Very nice place to stay. It was a short walk to the beach. It smelled and looked brand new. Very nice neighborhood.
Reviewed by: Jon K. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 We had to cancel our week timeshare two blocks down Leeward and were fortunate to find something available on late notice. Everything was as advertised. Condo was very clean and well appointed. Our only negative was access to the washer/drier was locked out. (W/D was not listed as an amenity). No W/D would make it difficult for a week but was not a problem for the weekend. The third floor is a climb. Being almost neighbors, we recognized the view of Padre Lake in the pictures and were somewhat surprised to find the condo faced the parking lot with view of the gulf in distance. We could see the lake by craning necks to the left. All in all we enjoyed our short retreat back to the beach. We always drive down and park on the beach in front of the Upper Padre Island Sea Wall Windward public parking where showers and bathrooms are usually fairly clean and a life guard stand with life guard present intermittently. Remember to buy beach pass sticker as they do check.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC This review and all the ones below this are to another unit. We recently swapped the unit that was origianlly marketed through this spot on the website but we could not pull down the old reviews. We're very sorry for any confusion this may cause but Casa Aruba is a great newly constructed duplex that's about 1.5 blocks off the beach.
A guest from Baytown, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 We had a wonderful stay! The property was in a great location and it was very quiet and relaxing. If I had any gripes, it would be the lack of wifi in the actual apartment/villa. Also, we called about the DVD player not working in the apartment/villa but never heard back from management. Small gripes though, everything else was fantastic.
Bruce D. from Edgewood, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 Great for the cost, and close to the beach. We saved a lot on food cost because we had the means to prepare food in the room. The only drawback was the lack of daily cleaning services. We had to wash a load of towels to make it through the week. Even with that we would still do it again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC Glad you guys had a good time. Next time you stay just let us know when you need more towels and we'd be more than happy to bring you some. Looking forward to having you back!
A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 We had rented before at the Beach Club and had a great little place. No major complaints about this place but just not great. Tub was dirty so we cleaned it, bedroom door doesn't close, third floor is a drag with hot humid air of Corpus, no washer/dryer, no hair dryer, not well stocked like other rentals.
Alissa S. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 This condo is beautiful inside, very comfy furniture, great bed, and new construction. There were some small issues with its cleanliness which have already been discussed with the management. Tried to take a bath, but the chemicals (chlorine?) made my fingernail beds burn. The view is so-so, but the walk to the beach is quick and flowers were blooming along the way. The kitchen is well stocked and the decor was tasteful. Good price, too.
