Best Beach House on the Island Booking, check in and check out were a breeze! The home was perfectly located and very clean! Enough space to sleep our group with lots of places to hang out and relax. The beds, pillows and couch are especially comfy and the home is comfortable. We especially loved the deck area and spent most of our time there! We will be back again!! Never staying anywhere else! Response from Port Aransas Escapes; Thursday, October 31, 2019 We are so please to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this amazing review.

Not all we hoped for This was our second year to stay in lost colony although a different property. Love the location and proximity to the beach. The property this year was adequate but not without its issues. We noticed evidence of mold, water leaking from a light fixture, bugs and the property needs major updating. The bottom bedroom was hard to keep cool.

Great Location! This house has amazing views and great floor plan but could use some updates and love. We loved how our family each had their own bathroom and the rooms are set up on the main floor for privacy. The master suite upstairs was also private. However the tv wasn’t working and the drain wasn’t working well when showering. There were also a few places on the main floor where it felt like you might fall through the floor. The private apartment on the ground level was great and very private as well but the bathroom was very small. The kitchen was bright and updated, very large fridge! The housekeeping should pay more attention to detail when vacuuming the floors. Overall this is a nice place and you cannot beat the amazing views from the deck and closeness to the beach and beach access. However for the price we paid I was hoping for a lot more.

Right on the beach! Excellent location if you want to be right on the water. For November, the weather was absolutely gorgeous and my friends and I spent the majority of our time outside on the deck or walking along the beach. The house itself is ok, but a bit over-priced for the condition and no real amenities except for the beach and pool. We had a great time though, which was the main purpose of staying there.

Vacation in Port A The house was great and the overall experience was exactly what we expected. I would certainly rent this house again. The only negative was we needed cleaning supplies in the kitchen besides dish washing soap. We ran out of the 2 kitchen hand towels very quickly and had to use bathroom hand towels. We needed spray or Clorox wipes for the counters to be able to keep everything clean during our stay. I will add that to my packing list going forward.

I quickly called them at 4:50 ( they close at 5) they were nice to bring us a key on their way home . When we got inside we started noticing roaches , ants and spiders . There were a few roaches in the main house but in the room off the beach they were crawling out of the fan plate on the ceiling . At one time my daughter had one crawl on her arm . The last day we were there we noticed our dog was covered in fleas , ugh ! <br/>The kitchen was not stocked with basic stables . For example , no salt and pepper , sugar , trash bags , coffee filters or hand soap . There was not a toaster and the ice maker does not function . <br/>So , if you are looking for a place to stay based only on location this is the place for you . If you think 600.00 a night should provide basic amenities and be bug free then you would not be happy staying here .

Location! Our rental house was at a beautiful location. RIGHT ON THE BEACH (17LC)! And that is basically what I paid for. The house is very, very dated inside (others have been completely renovated)completely wood on ceilings and walls from the 70's or 80's. We had visitors as well, such as 3 giant spiders and several cockroaches falling out of the AC vents. It was clean enough at first look, but the nooks and crannies were not. For the amount or $$ per night ($600+) I just wish it was a little more updated and clean. But as I said you are paying for location. We also had to purchase a can opener as there wasn't one in the kitchen. The house is large and looks great on the outside. We've vacationed in the two next door as well (5LC and 6LC - RIGHT ONE THE BEACH), they are completely updated now and are $700-$800 per night. Now that I know those are completely updated and same location (right on the beach)that is where I will rent next time.

Spring Break 2012 We shared the home with another family. Having 4br/4ba was perfect for us. The boys (18 and 13) loved the lower level bedroom with it's separate entrance, but I would think anyone with very young children could find that room not working very well. The location was absolutely perfect and lived up to our expectations in every way

This was our 4th stay in this home as it is the perfect location overlooking the beach. It is an older home and starting to show some wear and tear but still in pretty good shape. They made some recent upgrades such as a new refrigerator, dishwasher and coffee maker. This is the first time we had an ant problem in the kitchen but management was told and said they would spray. Overall we love the place but they should do some upgrades throughout the house.

Best part is the closeness to the beach, can't get any closer! The beach wind coming in at night makes lounging on the deck Heaven. Recommend no more than 8 adults since space is limited. Other than some minor issues due to age of property, we loved it!

There are not a lot of places in Port A where you can be steps from the beach and this house is ONE of the few. We love Lost Colony and have stayed in other homes. This was the best so far. Great panoramic views. Clean home. Great Housekeeping. You do need to bring your own, chairs, canopy, toys, beach towels, if you want those items. The staff at Port A Escapes is so kind and friendly and informative. Easy check in/out. We are already looking to come back this year...!

The house was great and the overall experience was exactly what we expected. I would certainly rent this house again. The only negative was we needed cleaning supplies in the kitchen besides dish washing soap. We ran out of the 2 kitchen hand towels very quickly and had to use bathroom hand towels. We needed spray or Clorox wipes for the counters to be able to keep everything clean during our stay. I will add that to my packing list going forward. Other than that we had a great time and house was in a superior location.

Our rental house was at a beautiful location. RIGHT ON THE BEACH (17LC)! And that is basically what I paid for. The house is very, very dated inside (others have been completely renovated)completely wood on ceilings and walls from the 70's or 80's. We had visitors as well, such as 3 giant spiders and several cockroaches falling out of the AC vents. It was clean enough at first look, but the nooks and crannies were not. For the amount or $$ per night ($600+) I just wish it was a little more updated and clean. But as I said you are paying for location. We also had to purchase a can opener as there wasn't one in the kitchen. The house is large and looks great on the outside. We've vacationed in the two next door as well (5LC and 6LC - RIGHT ONE THE BEACH), they are completely updated now and are $700-$800 per night. Now that I know those are completely updated and same location (right on the beach)that is where I will rent next time.

This house has a great location. It is literally right on the beach. Not separated by dunes, etc. It's a bit older and although it was very clean, the house is showing a bit of wear and tear. Especially the small downstairs bedroom that is separate from the rest of the house. And if you don't like stairs this is not for you. Very steep stairs up to master and stairs down into the sunken living area as well. But we enjoyed our stay, mostly due to the directly on the beach location.

This house is a great rental if you are looking for location only . The house has been updated with new decking and siding . The first thing we noticed was the key didnt work . I quickly called them at 4:50 ( they close at 5) they were nice to bring us a key on their way home . When we got inside we started noticing roaches , ants and spiders . There were a few roaches in the main house but in the room off the beach they were crawling out of the fan plate on the ceiling . At one time my daughter had one crawl on her arm . The last day we were there we noticed our dog was covered in fleas , ugh ! <br/>The kitchen was not stocked with basic stables . For example , no salt and pepper , sugar , trash bags , coffee filters or hand soap . There was not a toaster and the ice maker does not function . <br/>So , if you are looking for a place to stay based only on location this is the place for you . If you think 600.00 a night should provide basic amenities and be bug free then you would not be happy staying here .
