First, let me start off by saying that as far as dealing with the owner Mr. Watson was really pleasant and very fast in his response time. Answered all questions and made things so easy.

On another note, there were some disappointments as far as the accommodations of the actual condo itself. We found the beds to be extremely uncomfortable and squeaky. In addition, the quality of the sheets and bedding could drastically be better. Due to the beds and sheets I actually slept on the couch 2 of the nights we stayed. The howling sound in Windows with double beds was hard to ignore at night. We also felt the kitchen needed to be stocked with some additional items i.e.: more bowls for cooking or mixing etc. missing a mop, and ran out of trash bags and toilet paper which we had to purchase. The last thing, which the owners cannot change is the parking situation, it is inconceivable to say there is parking for two vehicles when we could barely fit one of our trucks. Unfortunately, other guests would trap us in and it was a mess needless to say.

On a high note the golf cart was wonderful to have and so convienent. We have stayed at numerous houses in port A and always love this beach!!!

Disappointed with condo

  • 2 of 5

We were extremely disappointed with this condo! Most amenities were provided! But...the following were areas that need to be addressed! 1. Bedding linens were very inadequate! 2. New mattresses need to be purchased! 3. Parking is very inadequate! It is deceiving to say there is parking for 2! NOT TRUE! 4. Barbecue pits provided but grill in the street?? Never heard of such!

AC was not working our last evening there!

We will never stay at This condo again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We have had an AC tech out and he was able to reset the thermostat to regular operating mode. However, we have decided to replace the thermostat with a simpler version to eliminate future issues with controlling the settings. Parking can be difficult at times in Port Aransas particularly on holiday weekends. We also encourage guests to contact us if they are experiencing parking issues as we can help resolve the situation. All of the mattresses have been purchased in the last couple of years and are on a replacement cycle. We will inspect them to see if they need to be replaced sooner but have not gotten any complaints from previous guests. Once again, thank you for your input. Michael

Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the condo and nothing has changed - we still loved the condo and would highly recommend staying here. It is very clean (important) and is extremely comfortable. They have everything needed for your stay and the golf cart is a must. Also, while you shouldn't be on electronics while on vacation, the wi-fi works great. The owners always respond a.s.a.p. so that is never a concern. Great place to stay!

Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful 3 story condo with all of the comforts of home. We especially enjoyed the 6 seat golf cart for trips to the beach and going out to dinner in the evenings. Our favorite eating spots were Beach and Station, Seafood and Spaghetti Works, and Stingrays. The owner was very friendly and quick to respond with any questions we had. We will definitely be back.

Very nice property with great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 days with family to celebrate son's graduation. All of us had a wonderful time. The property is lovely, close to the beach, has a pool and a golf cart available on-site. The place was clean and had all of the amenities we could ask for. The owners were quick to respond to any request we made. A good time was had by all.
