Potential to be very nice We liked the house and location, but it was not stated that it was under construction and was very dirty. There were thorns in the carpets so you couldn't walk without shoes, the screens were bad so we couldn't leave windows open and it was overall dirty. The furniture was also uncomfortable as it was all old and damaged. Response from Port Aransas Escapes; Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Thank you Bradley for your feedback! Port A Escapes never likes to hear a guest was not completely satisfied with the stay, but this gives us a chance to improve and grow!

Port A - Lost Colony Vacation The house we stayed at was in a fabulous location. We had an ocean view from both decks, as well as from the sliding glass doors in the master bedroom. The floor plan was great! Ample room throughout the entire house. Every bathroom was spacious and clean. They had clearly been updated. The kitchen was large and updated. However, the pots and pans needed replacing as they were all <br/>rusted, worn or chipped. <br/>The bedrooms were a good size, especially the master bedroom and the first floor bedroom with bunk beds. <br/>The only suggestion would be for the owner to either replace or clean the upstairs bedroom carpets which were stained. The secondary bedroom carpet smelled of pet urine. <br/>All in all, we would definitely stay there again.

Great beach house Overall the beach house is well maintained and in an awesome location right on the beach. This was our second stay and we had plenty of room for our 7 famil members. The loving room air filter was filthy so recommend replacing on a more consistent basis. The cleaning service missed some trash underneath some of the furniture and flip flops were left at the bottom of the back steps. The property is well equipped with towels, some toiletries, and kitchen utensils. We&#x2019;ve vacationed at port a 6 times and this is the best property we&#x2019;ve stayed at. We always enjoy coffees waves. They have excellent coffee and gelato. We always go to the candy store which is fun for the kids and this year we para sailed with chute em up. They were awesome.

Perfect Spot for this Beach Beauty This was a beautiful house on what I would say a perfect spot between ocean views, the pool, and overflow parking. <br/>The drive is very steep and only one of our vehicles fit without parking in the grass or blocking the street. The overflow parking was visible from the house which was comforting. The view out the back porches is a lovely one of the ocean. The main floor porch is very spacious with plenty of seating. The boardwalk was straight off the back porch with the paved entrance one house over. The pool was right next to the house. <br/>Spacious kitchen with plenty of counter space. We did find the kitchen utensils lacking as there was no baking sheets for the oven, and couple other things we ended up buying for our week long stay. <br/>The main floor bedroom and bathroom have plenty of room for luggage and personal items. <br/>The upstairs while spacious, did get hot at night. <br/>There was access to one garage area which was great to store beach chairs and tents after rinsing.<br/>Overall this house was the best beach house we've rented. Short walk over the boardwalk to the beach, a few steps from the pool, and a beautiful view from every inch of the porch.

Birthday/Father's Day Weekend Lost Colony is the best spot to stay for a Port Aransas trip. Every year for the last 8-9 my wife and my 3 grown kids and friends rent there, with Port A Escapes. I have stayed in this unit before. I will not again. Carpets were dirty and stained, furnishing dated, In order for temperature to be ok upstairs it had to be on 70 downstairs. I had to get the mgmt. company to send someone to unstop master bath sink in order to shave. The cost of my stay averaged $666/day, with fees and taxes. For that much money you would think the owners could spring for something more than the cheapest toilet paper and paper towels that money can buy. Port A Escapes Management Company was superior, as they have been all the years I have used them.

Location is key! This house is in a perfect location, steps from the beach, overlooking the pool. We loved sitting out on the shaded patio and relaxing while overlooking the beach. Inside, the property could use some updating, although the living room furniture is new<br/> and the bathrooms are spotless. The carpet, I would say, is the item they should replace first! The kitchen could use updating, as could all the furniture but the carpet is very unappealing. Since we were so close to the beach and had two dogs with us, it<br/> was PERFECT. This house is on three levels, so lots of stair climbing! A/C worked great!

Nice property, POOR MANAGEMENT Overall a nice property. Unfortunately, the management company leaves alot to be desired. We dealt with what amounted to a comedy of errors with regards to Port A Escapes. Not only did they never respond with a confirmation after payment, when we reached out on the day of our arrival, they were not only rude and unprofessional the instructions they gave were entirely wrong (location to pick up key and security gate code to name a few).<br/>Once we were finally able to get inside, every dish we used had to be washed due to filth. In addition, all bedding had to be washed prior to use do to the fact that they didn't look like they had been changed since last use.<br/>Lastly, management disregards any occupancy rules as every property around us had several families (12+ persons in 8 person occupancy), curfew's were not enforced (parties going till all hours of the night)<br/>It is unfortunate as this seems like a great property but without a change in culture/management, we will not be back

Thank you for a fabulous vacation! This was the best vacation my family and I ever had! The people at Port Aransas Escapes were a pleasure to work with. The location of the condo was perfect!!! We couldn't believe it was so close to the beach. We have two small children, 2 and 4, so this was very convenient. We practically had the beach to ourselves. The accommodations were perfect! I wasn't aware that the property was in a "gated" community and was pleased that there was the added security and safety which I did not know about initially. The condo was exceptionally immaculate. It was well furnished with the items we needed, including towels, dinnerware, glasses, cups, utensils, bowls, pans, etc. The kitchen appliances were all fully functional. There was even a washer and dryer which came in handy. I've already suggested this condo and Port Aransas Escapes to several of my friends.

Great property, location, view, but . . . Lost Colony #9 is a very short walk to the beach with great views of the ocean from two decks that also overlook the community pool. The property was clean except for the carpets which were extremely dirty. Wi-Fi and TV cable worked great - the only complaint was that the king mattress in the master was very old and uncomfortable - fortunately it was just me and my husband so we were able to sleep in the second (Queen) bedroom, but were disappointed as we specifically looked for a King bed when booking the property. We were there mid-week in September so we basically had the pool and beach to ourselves which was awesome. . . that is until Friday night when a group of people staying in (I believe) #17 decided to start partying at the pool from 1 a.m. until 5 a.m. - right outside our bedroom window. I called the "24/7" number provided by management and was told it would be taken care of. 30 mins later, I called back and was transferred to a lady who said she was never advised of my first call, and that it was too late at night to bother the on-site person at the property so "just call the police". We did not call the police and instead did not sleep until after 5 a.m. when the party finally ended. I would try staying there again but would find out up front what the exact procedures are for disruptive neighbors. I would also inquire about the beds.

Perfectly Private Getaway- One of Our Best Port A Experiences! We've been staying on Mustang Island for over a decade now and this was definitely one of our best visits. It was a lot more private and personal than our previous condos- great for a family or couples retreat. We were just a few short steps away from the water! The landscaping was beautiful- just watch out for snakes, like the signs say!<br/><br/>Kitchen has all the amenities- blender, waffle iron, etc. The freezer may need cleaning as it smells like fish (made our ice smell, too)....

Beach Beauty Review Nice condo. Very convenient to beach! Nicely furnished with good sized kitchen. Air Conditioning was hard to regulate since one unit cools all floors of building. Love having a deck for each story. Can't explain how much we liked being so close to the beach; boardwalk was convenient to get to and was a short walk to beach. Light bulbs were not working in garage & main deck which was frustrating when packing up to leave (garage).

While the location was super convenient to the beach and the community pool, the property itself is in need of serious attention. It was not one of the cleaner properties that I have stayed in (and I go to the beach every year), and it needs maintenance in every single room -- new carpet and paint would go a long way at the least. It also smelled like very strong pesticides for the first 4 days of our trip. The Lost Colony and the property itself could really be great if they were just given a bit of attention. There are so many new and updated houses in Port A these days, it is a shame that they have not kept this one up at all.

Spring puppy fling at the beach The property itself was well equiped in sleeping accommodations and in the kitchen. The two decks provided ample room for socializing and enjoying the outside. The price point was good for the location. Beach veiws were nice and access was within an easy, few minutes stroll.<br/><br/>The negatives. The property is showing its age and needs some upgrading and repair. For instance, kitchen floor tiles are cracking and peeling up. Carpet are worn out. Several light fixture not working. Loose boards on deck stairs, non-working porch and garage lights present safety concern.<br/><br/>Overall, we enjoyed the property and would return again. A BIG positive is the property management which were friendly and accommodating with good customer service. They said that they would address the safety issues immediately. They did everything possible to create an enjoyable stay. We enjoy going to the coast but do not visit as often as we like because of difficulty finding pet accommodations. We have championship dogs that travel whereever we go. This was the best dog friendly property on all of Port Aransas. We should know, we've stayed at most over the years. This was the best we have ever stayed at. We will make sure that ALL our fellow trainers and dog people know this is the place to go on Port Aransas.<br/><br/>Thanks for making our stay enjoyable.<br/><br/>Sincerely,<br/><br/>Russell and Sandra Brown

The true beauty of 'Beach Beauty' is in the location and the view!!! The location of this unit is ideal - right on the beach with spectacular views, but removed from the crowds of Port A. The property was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. <br/><br/>The kitchen is huge but definitely is way past due to be upgraded. It needs a complete remodel from top to bottom, as well as new pots and pans and new small appliances (toaster is a dog!!!). Same thing with the carpeting. It is old and stained and needs to be replaced. By comparison, the last two vacation homes that we rented were completely remodeled, yet charged about the same amount for rent that this place does for the location, number of bedrooms, amenities, etc. <br/><br/>Be aware if you rent this place that there are absolutely no condiments (not even salt and pepper)furnished. We have rented numerous vacation homes over the years, and this is the first time that we did not find any of even the most basic condiments provided. <br/><br/>We were not able to check in at 4:00 pm as we were told we would be able to. The property manager told us the unit wasn't finished being cleaned. The frustrating part was that she wouldn't even give us an estimate of how long it would take to finish cleaning it. We didn't know if it would take 15 minutes or 4 hours! We could have spent the hour+ that we waited to find out it was finally ready doing a lot of other things rather than sitting around the rental office. <br/><br/>The owner of Beach Beauty limits occupancy of this 3BR unit to six people, which we think is a great thing, especially during spring break week when we were there. It is too bad that other owners at Lost Colony do not have similar restrictions. For the first two nights that we were there, there were no less than a total of 25-30 people staying in two of the other units (either 1 and 2, or 2 and 3). There were kids everywhere. The pool was filthy when we checked in and there was, among other things, pool furniture laying in the bottom of the pool. Needless to s

Nice Location - A Few Concerns to Know Before Booking Location is great...right on the beach and next to the pool. The condo had items that needed to be replaced...the ceiling fan in the master was broken & you could not use it due to the loud screeching noise; the master mattress should be replaced; most ceiling fans needed to be balanced; chair in kitchen table was broken. The other furniture was nice and comfortable. You need to keep shoes on while in the house. There are some type of stickers all in the carpet. If you walked around at all without shoes you would get them in your feet...not real pleasant. We saw a rat running around the pool during the day, so you'd want to be aware of that with small children. There are also warnings of rattlesnakes and coyotes on the beach dunes and property. We did not see any while we were there. It is a nice property with a good beach view. We'd return. It's nice to know the truth and facts up front when making a decision. We were told by the management company that they really kept their properties in great shape in comparison to others. I did not find that to be a true statement. Here you are given the facts so you can make an informed decision. We'd return, especially if the items were replaced and fixed.

Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.
