Enjoyed area and closeness to beach.

  • 2 of 5

Cute place. Liked closeness to everything . Few issues, master air did not cool very well. No oven and for the clean up fee did not seem very clean. More light for deck area. Still enjoyed the stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Marsha R., Thank you for your feedback on our Casita. We apologize that you did not think the cleaning was up to par. We also had another guest mention this as well and we have since hired a new cleaner for this property and they recently did a very detailed deep clean to get it back to where it should be. We do our best to make sure our homes are clean and cozy, but sometimes things like this do happen and guest feedback like yours helps bring issues to our attention so we can remedy the situation and give our future guests a better stay. Again, our sincerest apologies and we hope that you may give us another opportunity to give you a more enjoyable experience in the future. Regards, Sand Key Realty Team

Small home with a cockroach problem

  • 1 of 5

My family of three and my small 10 pound dog recently stayed here for three days for our vacation. At first, the property was cute and seemed okay. However, the day after we checked in we found a couple of cockroaches roaming around in the kitchen drawers. We also found some cockroaches the size of my index finger in our bags of chips that were stored away on the countertop. This is something that definitely needs to be addressed. Along with the cockroach problem, the cottage was also really dirty. There was black dog hair (not my dog because my dog has white fur) all over the sheets in the bed as well as the couch. It seemed as if the sheets were not washed prior to our arrival. A fan was provided for us, which was coated in dust. The air-conditioning system was dusty as well. Also, the air-conditioning system was way noisier than expected. We informed the realty office about the problems during our stay and all we got was a "sorry". Other than that, the only other problem was the TINY bathroom. The shower was so small that if you move the wrong way, your body will touch the walls. The only good thing about this cottage was the spacious backyard. I will probably not stay here again and definitely will NOT recommend this property to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Chan. M, Thank you for your feedback on our Casita. Since your stay, we have since hired a new cleaner and have done a very detailed deep clean of the property. We also contacted our pest control company to do a more detailed spray specific to the palmetto bug issue you encountered. These units have been around for 50 plus years and they are not the tightest, most efficient homes, but we do take great measure to ensure that they are as bug free as possible. We were most upset about the cleaning issues you experienced and we have taken appropriate action to remedy the situation. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you may give us another opportunity in the future.

Quaint space with great back yard

  • 4 of 5

This cute Casita is located in a quiet neighborhood and everyone there was friendly. The yard was perfect for morning coffee, outside grilling and our dogs loved it! Warning there is not much lighting outside so bring candles.

The space is small but was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 1 child. We didn't realize there is NO oven, but we made due. We were prepared for possibly not much hot water from other reviews but had no issues. The pictures need updates. New colorful bed spread really makes the room.

Warning, it is on the wrong side of the street so it wasn't an easy find in the dark. It sits on the even numbered side of the street and the number is on the fence.

We plan to stay there again!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed. Pots, pans, barbecue pit, the most importantly a very comfortable bed. Everything was clean, tidy, and comfy. There's a very large backyard for the dog we didn't take. : ( But we had an opportunity to utilize the backyard and the deck for a romantic dinner. Everything we need it was provided and the check in and check out was very efficient. The location was very convenient and we can walk everywhere. We knew from the moment we walked in we were going to have a great time. In the event that you decide to take trip here, bring your furry friend and remember everything is provided here and the house will take care of you. Keep in mind relax you're on ISLAND TIME!

Cozy cottage in the center of Port Aransas!

  • 5 of 5

Casita 'Oolal was perfect for our weekend stay. It has a good bed, cooking facilities and nice sized refrigerator. The best amenity is the large fenced yard. Our dog could run & play while we sat on the deck in the shade. We enjoyed walking to nearby restaurants & shops. Definitely will be back!

Nice, but with some caveats!

  • 3 of 5

The place was nice, well kept, the back yard is huge, and the bed was really comfortable, but it is tiny (really only enough space for 2 people), and there's not even enough hot water for 1 person to take a 5 minute shower. The hot water thing was a major issue for us, so we probably won't be staying here again, especially for the price We go to the island quite frequently, and there are many places that are only slightly more expensive that are much nicer.
