Not the same. We rented this same house last year. This year we had some negative issues. We had toilet stop up twice. Second time, they failed to come and we had to call agin for them to come out. There is also a constant dripping from the top floor onto the middle floor that is wood and right in front of stairs. We had to have towel on it the whole trip. The blinds on middle floor do not open. This does not allow you to see out from main area of home. I advised management company when we left of our disappointment in these areas. I was told they would get back with me. They never did. I’m very disappointed.

Blocked view! The house inside was good. The picture displayed in the listed is totally false. There are houses on both sides and a motel in front between the beach and house. One of our party found sand between the sheets. Don't the sheets get changed between visitors. I think the owners should know about this. So sad this house was not as portrayed by Port A Escapes.

OCEAN SOUNDS FRAMILY VACATION (friends who are like family) We had a GREAT TIME! The house lay-out was VERY workable for our four families, with each family having their own bedroom and bathroom. The two fridges in the kitchen were wonderful; all drinks in one, and food in the other. LOVED that each bedroom had it's own TV. the directions in a notebook and provided by labels were helpful. The "negatives" were VERY MINOR...WONDERFUL CLOSETS but very little hanging space (one closet had no hanging space); we could have used a few more chairs on the deck (we had 8 adults and 2 children); although the washer/dryer was adequate, full-size would have been nice, but realize space is limited in utility room. But overall, everything was WONDERFUL!

Beautiful home! First time at this home. 3 stories with a bedroom and bath being the third story. The master is on the first floor along with a laundry room. The master bath is large with large closets. The middle floor has 2 other bedrooms along with the main living areas. The kitchen is wonderful because of size and 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers. Home is very close to walkway to the beach. A quaint motel/restaurant/bar is directly behind. This home did not disappoint in any way.

Great Beachhouse Beautiful home! Great kitchen which allowed everyone plenty of space to cook. Close walk to the beach and great view of the beach from the house and deck. We had 5 kids and 6 adults and had plenty of room. Beds were very comfortable as well as nice towels. We would definitely stay there again. Master upstairs is great for guests who want peace and quite from loud and noisy grandkids. I would recommend the adult children and kids stay on the 2nd and 1st floors. It was nice to have TV's in all bedrooms and was very happy to see beach toys in the garage for the kids. We also found charcoal for the grill outside. This house had everything we needed. All you have to do is bring your beach towels and food.

Best of the best! We've been coming to Port A for over 40 years, staying in condos, lodges, and houses. This home was by far the nicest one yet!! The picture on the website is a bit misleading, since there are now homes on either side, but that was not a problem. The upkeep was excellent. Furniture and bedding were all high quality. The kitchen was really spacious, and we could all hang out in there while fixing meals. Two fridges were a bonus! There were plenty of dishes, utensils, and pots/pans. The only thing missing in the kitchen that we were used to was 'leftovers'. Most homes have a stash of salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, spices, etc that have been left by previous guests for the next family to use. This home had none. The pantry was locked, so we had to bring everything in. Not a problem, just wasn't expecting it. But then again, this kitchen was top notch, and the owners probably don't want clutter in the cabinets. Understandable.<br/>The view was lovely. Boardwalk was literally right next door, and it was a really short walk to the beach. We enjoyed eating out on the large picnic table overlooking the ocean. Grill was small, but at least there was one. <br/>The pool was also close by. It gets crowded on weekends, but that's expected. <br/>Parking was minimal. We had trucks, and had to squeeze into our short driveway so as not to block others. There was a garage, but we were told we did not have access to it. There is also an elevator in this home, but we didn't have access to that either. If we did, I would certainly bring my elderly parents so they could enjoy a vacation at Port A. <br/>All in all, this was by far the nicest place we've stayed, and not even the most expensive. It was very clean, and didn't have that salty feel or smell (probably because of the air purifiers). We will definitely be staying here again and again.

July 2015 The house was a very nice home close to the boardwalk. The furniture was very nice and the number of bathrooms was great. However, the floors were dirty upon our arrival, my one year old who was crawling around had a black leg with in thirty minutes.

Wonderful House for my Family This house was an excellent rental for our family. Clean, new and modern, and very close to town and the beach. My only main complaint was the middle bunk room. This room was unbearable. There was absolutely no air circulation in this room and the kids were miserable. The room was hot and stagnant the entire time we were there. There is no ceiling fan, which is odd, because every other room in the house had one. There are no blinds on the window to block out the sun, just gauzy curtains, so there was no relief. The first thing I did was buy a fan, but it barely made a dent. The kids that had to sleep in this room were hot and uncomfortable every night. Other than that, the rest of the rooms were very cool and comfortable. Soft comfortable beds and large bathrooms and closets.

New Years at The Coast we have taken a lot of rentals. this one was pricey and needs some thought. we expected the kitchen to be a fully functioning one from the romance on the web,but there was only one small cutting board which we used on the bar. the toaster was cheap as was the blender,and we are accustomed to nicer small appliances. two dishwashers and fridges was a great idea but they dropped the ball at that point.the holiday decorations were not to be used ,it appeared and they were dust laden. using the candles New Years eve would have been nice but we did not light them,since they were not lighted during the other holidays. For the amount of folks that the house sleeps,there needs to be one more large sofa in the living area. Furniture is not for decore,it is for comfort and living.The exterior lights were not working on the rear of the house,where the cheap bbq grill was chained. It was a rusted Weber Kettle .Please. Make and investment in a real grill and keep it in the garage. We had to cook $200 worth of ribeyes be a table lamp because I refused to call out some poor guy on new years eve at 8 PM. to fix the lights.And to top it all off ...there was no CD player. They cheaped out all the way around and we ,in the two night stay probably made the mortgage payment. Get with the program people. If you want to offer a luxury rental you need to rethink this one.

LOVED the house, location and beach. Home was well appointed and decorated; tv's were great, kitchen was pretty, but we had some maintenance problems, the owners; the home is awesome. The only problems we had were with maintenance...when we arrived, a smoke alarm was beeping downstairs, and we also were disappointed that the windows were VERY dirty on the main (2nd) floor. The kitchen windows had been written on from the outside...lots of expletives. We washed that window so we wouldn't have to look at it. We called the mgmt. company, and were told the windows would be clean and the smoke alarm fixed. A man came and did change the battery, but didn't clean anything. Kitchen looked great at a distance, but housekeeping is not cleaning stuff properly. One deep pan had LOTS of cooked-on eggs inside it/knives were dirty and had food on them, in the wooden block. I had to wash everything before we used it after seeing that. Beds were clean and comfy, but we have rented homes many times, and have never had to buy so many supplies...very few bath towels and handtowels for so many people, only 2 in the kitchen, 2 small cheap rolls of toilet paper in each bath, 3 trash bags, 2 rolls of paper towels, no detergent or softener (for a week!!)...we were grateful we brought beach towels or we wouldn't have had enough, and we found ourselves spending money at the overpriced local store, for items that should have been provided, like toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags. The home is plush and elegant; you would expect better supplies, and higher quality linens, etc. BBQ was tiny and dirty, and the picnic tables take up the entire back deck...not sure about those. The trash drawer came off the guides (someone was supposed to fix it, but didn't), a dining chair was missing screws and bolts (somebody nearly fell out of it), and several plates had bad chips in them. I called mgmt co to let them know that the damage was there before we arrived...somehow I am afraid it won't be fixed for the next guests. Las

Review of 2086 Sandpoint Cirle Overall we were very satsfied, just a few points to mention: ice maker did not work well, lots of stickers on the grass around the house - maybe the ladscaper can try to remove,also - need to clean up the weeds around the boardwalk - they were growing into the walk. Also, maybe remove the sand from the part of the walk that hits the beach. The sun was blazing hot and it felt like our feet were going to burn up even with our flip flops on. It was also very hard to climb up the sand on the way back up. All 3 beds in the loft area squeaked a lot- need to look at replacing the beds and probably mattresses too - I think the beds were the problem. Some of the pans in the kitchen are rusted and sticky when you cook on them - frying pan especially, also need a new manual can opener - could not open cans with it but we had our own. Maybe install an under cabinet electric canopener instead.<br/>We will be back to this house - I would recommend to anyone. The notes above are just things that could make anyone's stay more comforable but not major problems.

This is a problem in Port A in general, I think, and not particular to the owners of this home. Response from Port Aransas Escapes; Tuesday, March 18, 2014 Thanks so much for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed the upgrade and hope you will return soon. Port A Escapes

Comfortable stay but could use some up keep We enjoyed our stay and it was perfect for what we needed. The kitchen could use some more utensils. They, for one, didn't have a vegetable peeler. The outside of the property needs some major attention. It is really dirty from the outside. And the view of the beach is not much of a view because the windows are filthy. We thought it might be because is being right on the beach but we checked other houses and they didn't have a problem. We wouldn't recommend to others just simply to costly to stay on the beach in a mediocre house when there are nicer houses on the same street and you can get a better rate and still be close to the beach.

We just spent our favorite beach vacation so far at this beautiful home. The home is much nicer than we had expected. Our family had plenty of space for alone time and a wonderful open living area for eating and relaxing together. The view was great and the walk to the beach was short. I definitely want to rent this home again!

This house was an excellent rental for our family. Clean, new and modern, and very close to town and the beach. My only main complaint was the middle bunk room. This room was unbearable. There was absolutely no air circulation in this room and the kids were miserable. The room was hot and stagnant the entire time we were there. There is no ceiling fan, which is odd, because every other room in the house had one. There are no blinds on the window to block out the sun, just gauzy curtains, so there was no relief. The first thing I did was buy a fan, but it barely made a dent. The kids that had to sleep in this room were hot and uncomfortable every night. Other than that, the rest of the rooms were very cool and comfortable. Soft comfortable beds and large bathrooms and closets.

Great house. Took a little getting used to all the stairs. Needs a dumbwaiter to the kitchen. Unfortunately there are houses on both sides of this house now. But it is still very private. Great view of the beach and boardwalk just steps away from the front door.

We've been coming to Port A for over 40 years, staying in condos, lodges, and houses. This home was by far the nicest one yet!! The picture on the website is a bit misleading, since there are now homes on either side, but that was not a problem. The upkeep was excellent. Furniture and bedding were all high quality. The kitchen was really spacious, and we could all hang out in there while fixing meals. Two fridges were a bonus! There were plenty of dishes, utensils, and pots/pans. The only thing missing in the kitchen that we were used to was 'leftovers'. Most homes have a stash of salt, pepper, sugar, coffee, spices, etc that have been left by previous guests for the next family to use. This home had none. The pantry was locked, so we had to bring everything in. Not a problem, just wasn't expecting it. But then again, this kitchen was top notch, and the owners probably don't want clutter in the cabinets. Understandable.<br/>The view was lovely. Boardwalk was literally right next door, and it was a really shor

The house was a very nice home close to the boardwalk. The furniture was very nice and the number of bathrooms was great. However, the floors were dirty upon our arrival, my one year old who was crawling around had a black leg with in thirty minutes. Also, the pictures are a little deceiving as there is a restaurant/ hotel in between the home and beach. Despite these minor things we had a very nice stay, enjoyed the house, and Port A Escapes employees were great!

Our stay was wonderful! The house exceeded many of our expectaions for all the right reasons... the kitchen was well stocked with appliances and dished and utensils. The home clean, the beds comfy and the view amazing! We cant wait to come back! THe only thing that couldve made it better was use of the elevator (it wasnt advertised to offer one). We had a few elders in our party that would have appreciated the use of it. But aside from that wich wouldve been an added bonus we all enjoye dour stay. I also have a few first timers to Port A with me who cant wait to come back.

Overall we were very satsfied, just a few points to mention: ice maker did not work well, lots of stickers on the grass around the house - maybe the ladscaper can try to remove,also - need to clean up the weeds around the boardwalk - they were growing into the walk. Also, maybe remove the sand from the part of the walk that hits the beach. The sun was blazing hot and it felt like our feet were going to burn up even with our flip flops on. It was also very hard to climb up the sand on the way back up. All 3 beds in the loft area squeaked a lot- need to look at replacing the beds and probably mattresses too - I think the beds were the problem. Some of the pans in the kitchen are rusted and sticky when you cook on them - frying pan especially, also need a new manual can opener - could not open cans with it but we had our own. Maybe install an under cabinet electric canopener instead.<br/>We will be back to this house - I would recommend to anyone. The notes above are just things that could make anyone's stay mo

This is our second year in the Sand Point neighborhood and had a good time again. The location was good with balcony views of the beach and proximity to the board walk. The exterior photos need to be updated because now there are houses within a few feet on both sides. Compared to the place last year, this one was a little bare in the kitchen - no paper towels, no left over spices except salt and pepper, etc. All in all, it was good trip.
