Reviewer Comments:

All I can say is this house was perfect for our needs. It was our first long term stay since retirement. We researched on VRBO looking for pet friendly accommodations as we have two dogs. Discovered Helen's Hideaway! Loved working with Silver Sands. Home location perfect. 2-3 minutes to anything we wanted. Ocean. Groceries. Library. DOG PARK! Great restaurants. Ferry. Birding. Shopping. Quiet. Bunk room for when adult children visited. Private pool for zen times floating in the sun. Dishwasher. LARGE SOAKING TUB. Great washer/dryer. Large yard for dogs to play in plus smaller fenced area they could do late night deeds, without us going out with them. Having such a comfortable place, that welcomed our pets, allowed us to go the Month of February and not suffer too much home sickness. Would not hesitate to work with Silver Sands or stay at this location again.

The Perfect Place!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, I and our two dogs happily lived here for the month of February 2017. Silver Sands was wonderful to deal with. The home itself, just so great. Discovered area by a search on the amazing website "Bring Fido" which lists 'dog friendly' accomodations in area. This was our first long term stay since retirement. Did not know how it would go. Well, it went Perfect! Perfect rental. Perfect location. Perfect size. Plenty of pillows, this is so important to me! Clean, Clean, Clean. We needed extra beds for when our adult children visited for a few days. There were plenty. Perfect yard. We would sit at night and the dogs just hung out or chased the ball. Perfect pool. So nice to zen out on floaty. Kids loved too. Everything we wanted was a two minute drive. Great restaurants! Food market. DOG PARK! The ocean. Dolphin tours. Great restaurants! Oil change. Quiet area. Churches. Library. Great restaurants. Nice washer and dryer, clothes came out beautiful. Dishwasher. Large soaking tub. Great walking trails. Birding. Shelling. The weather was incredible, the entire month with just 2 or 3 chilly or rainy days. Mustang Island, Padre Island Corpus Christi, just short drives. We only left the island to take kids to airport. Not many places like this left to visit. So laid back. Just relax you are at Helens Hideaway on the island now. No worries. We are gypsies and rarely visit same place twice. We agreed, we would make exception for Port Aransas TX and this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

THE HOUSE WAS WONDERFUL PLACE. THE POOL WAS GREAT FOR THE KIDS. THE LOCK TO THE POOL DOES NEED TO FIXED. PLENTY OF ROOM TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN. NEED MORE BATH TOWELS. THE UPPER HOUSE CAN SLEEP 8 PEOPLE BUT WAS GIVEN ONLY 4 TOWELS. LOWER HOUSE WAS GREAT. THE UPPER DECK WAS GREAT TO SIT OUT AND JUST RELAX THE BAR Q AREA WAS GREAT MAYBE A LITTLE MORE LIGHTING WOULD BE NICE. OVER ALL THIS WAS GREAT PLACE TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY. WILL COME BACK AND RESERVE THIS HOUSE AGAIN.

Great location and loved the pool ! House was spacious and accommodated 14 people nicely ! Spent a lot of time in the pool . The refrigerator needs updated , couldn't freeze the kids pop ice but other then that no complaints ! We had a great time ! Price is a little high but pretty high in general for that area . Would return !

Reviewer Comments:

The pool was the best part. The first night I had to call about large roaches.2nd day call about the trash not being picked up The third night I had to call about the refreezer not freezing.the 5 night has to make a emergency call due to the air conditioning system leaking down stairs.the account man came the next day and said it was clogged up and had been that way for a long time . There was mold all on the unit. The carpet got wet and stunk. For the money I paid I think we got the bad end of the deal. We could have went to Disney world . My husband just passed away and we just wanted to spend time somewhere he loved . My guest left early due to the water leaking downstairs. The place had to have been leaking get before due to the smell downstairs. I called to tell the staff and I just got a I'm sorry . Last year we stayed at another property and had small roaches. They said come back next year and will give you a discount and this year was worse. They did go out every time I called but overall sad ND disappointed. No call back to even offer a discount on stay.
