Great place for vacation!! evelyn c. from san antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 I been to island retreat before with friends but with agency VRBO is treating as very good overall.
Pretty Nice Karina G. from Denton, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 The room are out of date but it was clean. The only major complain we had in our stay was the AC unit was too loud during the night and it keep waking us up. The beach was a walking distance and it was beautiful. I Recommend it if you're looking for a nice, affordable place in Port Aransas!
The Beach Hut 135IR Yolanda C. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 Overall it was good. Not 4 star but good. The DVD failed to work and we contacted the company and they quickly remedied the problem. The condo was not near as large as it appeared to be on-line. The place was clean but not immaculately so. This condo needs a deep cleaning as it had obviously had a "doggy" visitor before us and it was obvious to us the minute you took a breathe. It had an pet odor problem, not horrible but certainly not a welcoming smell.
the view,the view A guest from Leander, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 So I was very happy to find a place that excepted my dog.She is a rescue pup,that I want to give experiences to.The condo is in a great location,had everything we needed.I would just say it needs some updates like funiture wise,things smell weird.Probably from not shampooing the couch and blue dresser smells like mold.I think if the owners invest just a bit,some shower knobs,new kitchen flooring,atc.This could be a fantastic place to return the way yes this is what I do for a living.Home staging- Professional Orgainizer.I make people's life's easier.Oh and yes I did complain about the bug spray smell,but no one seemed to really care and yes it gave me a headache,but after leaving the place open for two days it did go away.
Great Place Cara R. from Dallas, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 I loved this little condo. It was perfect. Cute and cozy, it is right on the beach. Decent sized balcony facing out to the waves. My husband and I stayed here with our dog. Our trip was somewhat of a bust as we didn't see the sun the entire time (stupid weather), but the condo made it better. More personal and more room than a hotel would have. Our dog looooved chasing the birds on the beach as we went for walks and runs. I would very much enjoy staying here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear you enjoyed your condo. Hopefully you can make it back when the weather is a little nicer.
Needs work; superb location. Sara H. from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in November, 2015 Like many properties in the area it has succumbed to rust ? the door hinges, the stove, the window hinges, etc. but the location and view compensate for a lot that is wrong with the unit.This particular condo needs about $1500 worth of work to bring it up to snuff including the decor and furnishings. It feels as though it?s been decorated from a Thrift store; but if you can overlook that it?s in a superb location.It?s a bring your own EVERYTHING unit, including coat hangers. I personally found it annoying to have even the vacuum cleaner locked away, so there was no way to clean up sand from the beach, or clean up after yourself. The clothes closet is in the kitchen so if you plan on cooking smelly food, be aware of that. There are a lot of warnings from the management, including not dirtying the face towels, but to use the make-up remover wipes provided. They only provide two of those so if you are there longer than two days, I guess you?re on your own. Two rolls of toilet paper are provided but no hand soap, etc. etc. No change of sheets and no spare pillows.If some money were spent on the unit (furniture, decor, appliances), and they were a little more generous with the amenities it would be great.
Long Weekend in Port A David W. from Weatherford, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 Spent 3 nights in IR135. My second time staying here. Great little condo. Has an awesome view from the balcony of the dunes and the Gulf of Mexico. Will definitely be staying here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear you enjoyed your condo along with its awesome view. Just give us a call when you are ready to come back.
We like Island Retreat... Just not this condo. A guest from Leander, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 We stayed in condo #135. It wasn't clean; there was food spilled on some of the furniture, and the floors had crumbs. When we booked it was one of the only condos free; I read reviews that the smoke detector was broken and the cabinet knobs pull off, and apparently none of this was fixed in the months since those reviews, because we had the same issues. Also, it was annoying not to get fresh towels. We won't book through Port A Escapes again.
not what we expected donald r. from hawley, Texas does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 never expected to be on second level. with numerical address 100 thru 199. oversight on my part for not checking assumed 200 thru 299 on second floor 300 thru 399 on third level etc etc. wife has dissability that made it very uncomfortable to climb steps!
Perfection Jason L. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 It was clean, great location, it was pet friendly! I loved it! Cooked breakfast every morning, took my dog to the beach and set up a tent during the day. Went out for dinner at night...FANTASTIC. Exactly what the doctor ordered. Next time I need a break from life this is where I will return
Property Manager Response: Response from Port Aransas Escapes We are glad to hear that you and your dog had a wonderful time and will see you next time you are in Port Aransas.
Needs updating A guest from Austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 Floors sticky. whole facility and room needs updating. Cig butts outside room for two days. Property looks tired even though its been freshly painted with a very unattractive color.
Quiet Beach Getaway! A guest from La Grange, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 This unit was perfect for my husband and I. We truly enjoyed the view! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the water. The TV went out while we were there, and maintenance was there promptly to swap it out for a new one. (Not big TV watchers on vacation, but it was the NBA finals) We are already talking about coming back to this unit. Perfect for a couple or a small family.
Beach view pet friendly A guest from ARLINGTON, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Clean, great balcony view of gulf and convenient location to town. Two dogs enjoyed short walk to beach and long walks on beach.
review of Island Retreat #135 A guest from Kerrville, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Screen door broken and hard to close when I got there; front desk seemed to know about it but no plans to fix it i guess. Clean but floor is slippery when dry w/shoes and sticky w/wet feet.Internet wouldn't work when complex was busy.TV picture was too bright and distorted at times like TV was about to go out. Other than that; great view, not too noisy, and fairly easy to check in and out.
Better then others around! Blanca B. from Buda, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 I was very happy with this place as i am very picky where i stay. Spot was right by the beach, clean condos, although it had an old house smell it wasn't all that bad since i brought my own febreze. The kids enjoyed the pool, it has a bbq pit with picnic tables that have a top to block the sun. Clean and safe parking lot. The ONLY downside to my stay was i couldn't relax with with all the rules you have on bow to leave the condo at your departure. You have to pay a cleaning fee yet you're asked to take out all trash, turn the dishwasher on, set the a/c, no stains on the towels etc which makes it hard to relax. If I'm expected to pay a cleaning fee then i shouldn't have to do the job.
SB2K15 Monica S. from Pflugerville, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Overall, we were very happy with the location of this property. Our balcony faced the beach and we were very close to the pool. I would certainly recommend this property to family & friends.
Great Stay Johnny C. from Grand Saline, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 Had a great time. Came down to go fishing. The condo was great with everything that we expected.
Beachy Waterfront Condo Kaleigh W. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2014 The place was clean, the view was awesome. Easy boardwalk to the beach within minutes. We traveled with a small dog, and he loved lounging on the large deck.The place lacked some pots, pans, forks, spoons, so we did have to run to a nearby CVS to pick up disposables. But plenty of cups were in the cabinets. Excellent and easy check in and check out - even during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend!Wish we could have stayed longer!
Review of IR135 A guest from Grapevine, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 My only complaint is that there is no maid service. Been coming to this area for 3 decades and have always had at least once weekly trash pick up and fresh linens/towels. We had enough towels but not enough washrags. Overall a good experience. Lovely view. Although, a little concern with what appeared to be rat droppings on the balcony.
A Great end to the summer A guest from Seguin, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 The property was perfect for our last weekend of the summer. I has a great location close to everything. Our porch overlooked the ocean. I would return to this location next chance I get.
our stay A guest from Austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 Management is bad - property had a smell - property had broken glass on the floor and I cut my foot. no place to BBQ. A/C did not work well it was HOT could not sleep.
A nice getaway A guest from Sand Springs, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 We spent 3 nights. Our goal was to be close to the beach. The property is on second floor with balcony that views the water. About 50 yards on maintained walkway to the beach.Modest accommodations in GREAT location!
My Port A Trip Crystal H. from Salina, KS recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 I loved the room! It had everything I needed. I really enjoyed stepping out on the balcony and seeing the boardwalk to the beach. Saw some great waves and moonrises. I didn't use the pool, tennis courts or picnic area but would love to if I had my family with me! I felt safe with the onsite security as I drove onto the property. I would love to stay there again!
They we'er very professional A guest from Little river- academy, texas does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 It was in a great location. But we we arrived it had a mildew smell in room. Fridge was dirty on the sides. Inside was clean. Other than that it was a great location next to beach and swimming pool.
Great view of beach A guest from Blanco, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 The patio had a wonderful view of the ocean. However, the window would not close so the room was never comfortably cool and at night there was loud wind whipping through the window. I was not able to sleep it was so loud and hot. The amenities were great though. Nice pool, swing set and nice to be so close to the beach.
Room With a View David W. from Weatherford, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 Second floor condo has a view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico that is stunning. Very comfortable beds and wifi signal is very strong. Been vacationing in Port Aransas for years and this is the best condo I have stayed in.
Fun, Fun and more Fun! Carole J. from Robstown, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 My cousin and I had a fun relaxing time during our stay in Port Aransas. The condo was perfect for the two of us. Loved that we could go out on the balcony and see the water and we could walk down to the beach when we wanted. Plan to stay in this same condo again soon.
