Mitch R. from Temple, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 Nice one bed room apartment, only issue is bed was dis ribbed as a queen but I believe it was actually a full, as it was tiny
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC This bed is a queen size. Thank you for your feedback, hope we see you back again soon.
A guest from Hallettsville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 The apartment totally exceeded our expectations! Clean, beautifully decorated, great location, affordable. It had a great 'Your on Vacation'!! Vibe & feel to it that I loved! The private fishing pond was so much fun! (The dog poop should be cleaned up, but that is not the properties responsibility, several guests with dogs did not clean up after them & there was quite a bit of dog waste around the pond. Even though the property provided free waste removal bags!) The pool was clean, comfy and a lot of fun for us. Same with the hot tub! When we checked it, they were so helpful and friendly! I can't wait to go back!
A guest from Mckinney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2015 We had a wonderful stay. Everything was clean and fresh and all that we needed was provided. My only complaint was that if tried to run the microwave and the stove, the breakers would trip. We would go back again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC Thank you for pointing out the breaker issue, this is the first we've heard of it. We will work with the owner on getting that taken care of as soon as possible.
Heather D. from Hurst, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 Loved our home away from home. Had everything we needed and more! Enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids for a weekend. Great location! Didn't want to leave.
Jose A G. from Argyle, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 This location was perfect. The decorations were very nice. The internet connection was a big hit for my college age daughters and for my wife and I. the only criticism I have is about the noisy guests upstairs, but not much can be done about that. This will be our go to spot to consider for next year. We really enjoyed ourselves
Terry Z. from Cypress, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Nice place needs deck chairs cleaned and smelled a bit like smoke, other than that it was great.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC We apologize for the inconveniences you had to deal with that certainly isn't up to our usual standard. With the two issues you're describing it sounds like someone was sitting on the patio smoking and that's what caused the smell and the mess. Thank you for the feedback.
A guest from Houston, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 Not very good
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC We of course hate to hear a property was not cleaned up to our usual standard. We will contact you by e-mail to find out the exact issues that you had so we can make sure they are addressed. We apologize for the inconvenience but we appreciate the feedback. We will use it to better our services for our guests.
David J. from Lake St Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2015 Seven day vacation with 5 days of rain. The only redeeming factor was this condo and the management company. I was extremely happy with the way I was treated.
Clayton V. from Bynum, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in September, 2014 Accomodations were great, close to the beach and to my place of business. The condo, pool and grounds were all well maintained. The rental company was very professional and courteous, even called to ask if our stay was going well. One complaint, there was a very personable maintenance guy who worked hard all day doing a variety of chores. The property manager talked to him like he was some kind of second class citizen. She is probably an efficient person but needs a serious overhaul of her people skills. Had she talked to me the way she did the hard working maintenance worker I would have resigned on the spot.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC FYI: neither of those were of our employees, they are employees of the complex. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and got your business taken care of, we hope to see you back next time you're working in the area. Thank you
A guest from Baytown, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 location was good!sofa bed needs to be replaced it was very uncomfortable the smell as soon as you walk in was a musty yucky smell and the $50.00 dollars to park a trailer is ridiculous. I would stay in the building but in a different condo
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC Frankly I'm not sure I've ever found a sofa bed that's comfortable for an adult. I apologize if there was any kind of "smell" in the property. We inspect every property before guests arrive and where unaware of any odor, there was a lot of heavy rain this week so some may have leaked in and got the carpet moist and then caused the mildew smell. I'll look into that further but the owner is coming down next month to replace that carpet with vinyl flooring. The complex does offer boat trailer parking, we just offer the additional secure parking for over-sized trailers if needed.
A guest from Corpus Christi, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 We stayed in a one bedroom Condo on the first floor. It accommodated myspouse & myself Iin a queen size bed and our 7 & 6 year olds in the libing room (sofa bed). The condo is not large but accomodated us comfortably. If all guests were adults, I would suggest a bigger rental. Plastic cover on the bed too noisy/loose. Sofa bed- we had to take out the matress and set on the floor for comfort since the kids could feel the bars of the frame. Bathroom was clean. Closet was clean-didnt really use. Kitchen was clean as well and accomodating (it had kitchen utensils needed). Overall we enjoyed our stay for the exception that we heard our top neighbors (on second floor) everytime they walked/stepped, dragged furniture. This included at all hours of day AND night. Would suggest carpet flooring with thick or thicker padding for apt above.
Teresa C. from Trinidad, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 We would highly recommend this unit. It was stocked with everything you could possibly need. Great location. Comfortable beds. We will definitely be booking this one next summer for our family vacation!
Rachel A. from Waxahachie, Texas does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 This unit was in ok shape. The couch bed was uncomfortable. It was not immaculately clean but good enough. Nice that it had a recliner as well as the couch. You could hear the waves at night which was nice. Really liked the pool, hot tub, private fishing pond on the property.
Property Manager Response: Response from Padre Escapes, LLC We appreciate your feedback but we're definitely disappointed to hear the property was not cleaned up to our usual standards. We thoroughly clean and inspect before every guests arrival so it's surprising to hear these issues but at the same time we all make mistakes. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again so we can show you our usual high standards for cleaning.
A guest from New Braunfels, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 Our little family visited July 11-15, 2014 and enjoyed the condo. It was spacious for us and they had a reasonably well-stocked kitchen. We used the outdoor charcoal grill next to the pond, the pool, and the office WIFI. We liked this unit because you park directly adjacent to the patio so we loaded over the fence directly into the condo. Unit was clean and everything worked. Complex was quiet even though it was highly occupied. The beach is a quick one-minute drive; you can park on the beach so you will have all of your gear with you. Key pickup was easy and fast. Location of condo and key pickup was easy to find. Beach was reasonable...not private but people kept to themselves and there were mainly families. Overall very satisfied and will stay here again.
Robert L. from Lakewood, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 Our condo was so comfortable. It was very clean. We had everything we needed. It was nicely decorated. The one bedroom was perfect for us. We had 2 adults and 1 teenager and a 9yr old. It was located on the first floor right by the parking lot where our assigned parking spot was. The beach was only a short walk away. We also enjoyed the swimming pool area. It was very nice. We barbecued by the pool and met some of the other guests there. Everything was perfect except for no wifi in the condo. We we would definitely stay there again!
A guest from Fort Worth, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 Easy check in and check out! Condo was perfect size for my family of 3. Was also clean and uncluttered which was necessary for my 16 month old! Great location!
Barbara S. from Seguin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 Condo was great! The area is wonderful with plenty of things to do! Everyone was so friendly that handled the rental!
Nicholas L. from Calne, Wiltshire recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 We are visiting Texas from the UK and have been staying in very nice hotels in Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin, but there is no place like home, and when we opened the front door to the holiday apartment it was lovely and warm and welcoming, we walked down to beach, smelt the sea and knew our holiday had begun. The facilities were great, we used the gym and would of used the pool only the weather wasn't great and we don't fish, but if we did, fantastic!! We left for the airport feeling, happy and rested, what more could you ask. Thanks to The sugar shack.
