Fun Family Vacation
by Donia B.
Great layout & location! Kids loved the pool & 6 person golf cart. Short walk to the beach.
Thank you for staying with us at Port A Escapes.
by Anne P.
This was a great, large house with 4 bathrooms, laundry, and a pool. It’s close to the beach. Having a golf cart made everything so easy to get to and being in town meant shopping was close by. The management company was easy to communicate with via text.
Thank you for being an amazing guest! We hope to see you again soon!

Great Beach House
by Kris W.
Love the house and location! Overall the house is great except all the beds are hard.
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us!

Great house close to the beach
by Shelly L.
This home was beautiful and very spacious. I especially liked the location as it was just down the street from one of the beach access. Having a private pool was a definite plus. The house was clean and the AC worked well which was nice after a hot day in the sun. There isn’t anything negative I could say about this rental and will definitely stay again. I’d also like to mention the management was friendly.
Thank you so much for staying with us here at Port A Escapes, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to you staying with us again. we are so happy that you are pleased with the service you got from our team here at Port A Escapes.

Love this house!
by Cindy M.
This was our 4th year to stay in this house! It is a perfect location, has everything you need, clean and fun! But seriously, get new mattresses! We learned after the first year to bring foam mattress toppers for all of the beds.
We always enjoy our repeat guests, we are so glad that you were once again satisfied with your stay and look forward to the next time you come and stay with us again.
by Rachel L.
We have stayed at this house several times and we love it so much! Port A is our home away from home and this house has everything we need! It is also so accommodating for our large family that we don’t feel that we’re stepping all over each other and we have our own space! We just wish we could stay longer every time!
Hi! Welcome back and thank you for taking the time to leave this review! Please come back soon to visit us on your next vacation!
This house has so many great features. I didn’t give it 5 stars because the beds are hard - really hard. Also, this house is between an overgrown empty lot and what looks like an abandoned house. Otherwise the house itself was great and the pool area was very nice. Very nice patio furniture on decks and by pool. We had a great time here!
So sorry about the beds being to hard, and thank you for writing a review! We hope that you will continue to be our guest during your vacations in Port A.
by Kirsten R.
"Barefoot Dreams" was an absolutely perfect vacation rental for my family. The bottom level "apartment" is only accessible from an outside door, and it contains a bedroom and bathroom with a pull-out sofa bed. There is no kitchenette, but there is a small refrigerator provided. The second level contains two bedrooms (queens in each), a bathroom, a very well-equipped kitchen and a living area with a big screen tv. Super comfy! Upstairs is the master bedroom with a second bedroom (queen bed + a sleeper sofa.) Both bedrooms have their own bathrooms. The pool area is AMAZING! It is closed in, so pets or children cannot escape! The beach is within easy walking distance (possibly three blocks away), but lugging beach gear might be tiresome. (We rented a beach buggy.) Again- the kitchen was well stocked with cookware, coffee pot, corkscrews (important), a can opener... etc. TAKE YOUR OWN WASHING MACHINE DETERGENT because you will be asked to throw towels in before you leave, and my husband had to run to the store because no pods or detergent was provided. I highly recommend this beach house!!!
We are so excited that you had an amazing time and hope you come back and visit again.
Fantastic home we have stayed here before this was our 4th time. Dog friendly great value for the money especially with the upgrades.
Thank you for the kind review. Please come back a 5th time!
Great Time at a Great House!
by Erica O.
For the most part, we really enjoyed our stay. The only issue we had was that the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. Of the 8 people who slept in 5 different beds, we all agreed on that. Also, the knives that are in the kitchen are extremely dull. I recommend bringing your own knives if you plan to cook.
Please come back again soon!

Barefoot Dreams is everything and more that you would want in a vacation rental. It has everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. You definitely get that beach feel with all the island themed decor. The furnishings aren’t just beautiful but comfortable too. Comfortable beds, heated pool and a short walk to the beach. The perfect location and accommodations.
We stay a month and rebook for the following year before we leave as to not lose this perfect home away from home. You won’t be disappointed in Barefoot Dreams or Port A Escapes. There are several rental companies on the island but Port A Escapes is the best one to work with. Customer satisfaction is important to them and they strive to make your stay meet your expectations and match you with the perfect property. We are thankful they suggested Barefoot Dreams.

I cant recommend this house enough. It had plenty of room for our 8 guests. Everyone had their privacy. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The heated pool was such a nice addition that we used constantly! And the house is a very short walk to the beach and close to everything in town. Oh and especially great that we could bring our dogs. We will rent again!
Thank you for your 5 star reviews and trusting Port A Escapes in making your beach vacation a memorable one. We look forward to booking your next vacation getaway in the near future.

This has been by far one of the best places we stayed enough room for everyone well cleaned and less than a minute from the beach
Thank you for your 5 star review and trusting Port A Escapes in making your beach vacation a memorable one. We look forward in booking your next vacation getaway.
COVID-19 Didn’t Stop Our Family Fun
by Mike R.
Checking in on Saturday we walked to the beach to check it out! We discovered the walk wasn’t bad at all. The house having a pool and the outside area was a dream. The grand boys loved the outside and the adults loved the large living area inside. Our only complaint was the two bedrooms on the main floor have no tv hookups for cable or satellite. We brought a tv for the boys and couldn’t hook it up. We love this place and Port A Escapes so much we put a one night down payment for next year! See you in 2021!!
Thank you for your review! We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
by Fidel A.
The house was very clean and well maintained. Had enough space for all of us, a party of 15. The pool is a plus, the grandkids had a blast in it. That’s the main reason we got a house with a pool. Will definitely be coming back and hopefully getting the same house
Hi Fidel! We are so happy to hear you and your family had a great time! We look forward to seeing you again!
Wonderful Home and Vacation!
by Ashley C.
Barefoot Dreams was the perfect home for our recent vacation to Port A. There were 9 adults and 3 young children and the home accommodated us all comfortably. The home is in the perfect location, just a short and easy 5-10 minute walk to the beach. The pool was AMAZING after a long day at the beach. It is mostly shaded after about 3pm which was great for all of us who were burned after day 1! The kitchen was very well stocked (except for silverware--might want to bring some plastic cutlery). The rooms were perfect, except for the beds...they were VERY hard :( This didn't bother the young folks, but for us older ones it was a bit uncomfortable. We had some issues with the bottom floor room not cooling well, but after putting in a maintenance request, they came and fixed it ASAP. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this home for your Port A vacation! We are already planning on booking for next year!
by Kara W.
The house is in a great location very close to the beach. We really enjoyed having a private pool. The only thing was that we couldn’t leave any kind of food out in the kitchen, not even for a couple minutes, without roaches getting on it.
Barefoot Dream Escape!
The house was comfortable and roomy. The pool was fantastic and the beach a short walk away. Our only complaint were the back stairs, which seemed a little steep.
Barefoot Dreams 616 SCD
by John B.
The house was perfect for our group. Nicely appointed and comfortable for all. Would rent again and recommend.

Great November Vacation
by Steve M.
This is a great house. Being here during November, we had a few cool days, and the heated pool saved the day for the grandkids. Open floor plan is great for having everyone together. Great selection of pans and utensils. Everything worked flawless. Beds are fantastic.
Thank you Steve for the feedback! We love hearing from our guest's. We look forward to having you back for stay #4!

A fun place to come together
by Katie B.
This house was perfect and met all our needs! It was such a short walk to the beach and having the heated pool for the kids was nice too! Lots of space for all our families to have their own areas, but still come together for meals. The property management team worked with us to get us the keys and did a great job communicating before our stay. Would definitely recommend this place!

The best vacation home for multiple families
by Irene T.
My family and I were very happy with this location and the house, including the private pool. Will come back next year.
WE here at Port A Escapes look to having y'all come stay again and make more life time memories.

by Arlene F.
Our group of friends and family had a great time at Barefoot Dreams! Plenty of room for everyone and the pool was a great plus. The room downstairs was musty smelling, but, overall, not too bad. Port A Escapes was so helpful, especially while planning our trip. We'll be back!

by Brandi G.
We arrived Friday evening and they had our key ready in a super easy lock box. We arrived inside and it was amazing, like our own little beach house. Everyone had their own rooms and we were able to all gather in the living room and sit at the huge kitchen table for dinners. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the bungalow. Nice and relaxing and super close to the beach, we rented a couple golf carts and it made it sooooo easy. We loved it.
August 10, 2018 - Escapia
Beautiful 3 story beach house
Our family of 14 came to Port A for 4 days. Each of the 4 couples had a beautifully decorated bedroom and a bathroom plus a bedroom for the kids. The pictures dont do it justice. It has a wonderful beachy feeling. It is a block or 2 from the beach and we took our rented golf cart to the beach, pier and ship channel everyday. Even better than the house was the pool and back yard. It was a perfect size. The deepest part was 4 1/2 feet. Two of the little ones learned to swim in it! At night the pool light turned violet and some of the adults hung out down there. We drank coffee on the breezy front porch every morning. Loved the house.

by Mercy R.
We had an amazing time!! The house was beautiful ,clean, and perfect! I have been using port a escapes for about 6 yes now! Always my go to for booking my beach vacation.
Fantastic Family Vacation 2018
by Carla M.
The complete rental process was so easy. Picking the house, payment, easy to contact office, being kept up to date on events and amenities in the area, checkout and follow up. The house we rented was the perfect size for our group. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything that we needed to cook. The gas grill poolside was fantastic for everyone to swim and visit and cook at the same time. Tons of seating for everyone. Rooms were not only very clean and pretty but they were generous in size. The outside water system was a plus for washing off all the sand on our beach toys as well as people! We had a great stay and will definitely be recommending this home to others. Thank you for all you did to open up your home to our family.

WOW! Best Beachhouse for Us!!!
by Denise S.
We recently spent 4 nights at Barefoot Dreams, and our experience was superb! Port A Escapes is a great management company so we weren't surprised by the customer service we received there. Everyone was professional, friendly, and helpful as always.
This spacious beachhouse was just what we needed for our ever-growing family. We have visited Port A every summer for almost 20 years and have stayed in rentals with more than a little wear and tear. But this home is in excellent condition from top to bottom.
A lot of thought and care has gone into preparing Barefoot Dreams for guests. We enjoyed the multiple outdoor sitting areas. The FULLY stocked kitchen made cooking and serving a crowd a virtual breeze. A huge plus was that we all basically had our own bathroom (it wasn't necessary to share one with 6 or 7 people). But I think everyone's very favorite part was the pool area. We all gravitated to the cool water and shaded palapa where there were plenty of comfortable chairs.
So, we have found our new summer home, even if it is only for 4 or 5 days per year. Our entire family looks forward to making lots more memories at Barefoot Dreams!
Thank You so much for staying with us at Port A Escapes!!

by Sandra F.
We had a great time. Barefoot Dream is the perfect place to stay. Close to the beach and town. The pool was a plus. Grandkids loved coming back from the beach and being able to jump in the pool and play for a few more hours. We will be back to Port A next year and will probably rent Barefoot Dream if available.
Best place to stay in Port Aransas!
by Arthur D.
Our family loved this rental! It was big enough for all of us! It was decorated and furnished to match the beach vacation and we absolutely loved the patio and pool area! We will definitely stay here again!
by Stacy P.
Our Family had a wonderful time. The house is amazing. We all had a blast. My family of 5 vacationed with my sisters family of 5 and my mom and step dad. There was 12 of us and we had plenty of room. Location was great as well. Walking distance to the Beach and close to town. The Best Part about this house is the POOL. We all enjoyed the pool! We will definitely be back here to vacation!
Great house! Great location
by Shelly K.
Overall, vacation was great! The house had plenty of room for everyone. Great location to town, shops, restaurants and beach. The pool area was awesome! Only complaint is it seems like an older house. The installation could be better between floors.
by Debra S.
Our family had an absolutely fabulous time!
The house was awesome we will stay there again!
We are glad to hear that you and your family had a great time. Please give us a call when you are ready to come back to Port A.
More Than Imagined!
by Zach J.
This property is larger than it looks in the photos and was extremely clean and put together. Everything we needed was supplied with the rental.
The pool area is beautiful! This place will always have a piece of our hearts.
Top notch Stay
by James S.
This vacation rental had it all, plenty of kitchenware and utensils, so leave your kitchen at home! Love the layout, the pool, the closeness to the beach, the c looseness to town, and the amount of parking spaces. Unit was well maintained, pool guy came a few times after the storm to make sure it was ready for us, had problems with the grill and maintenance came really quick. 5 BR's, great for a big family. Only mark would be the downstairs bedroom smelt a little musky, sort of like mold, but I still rate this place a 5 STAR!
by Debbie S.
This house was just perfect for our family Easter weekend! It accommodated the young and old. We had age range 6-75 yrs old. Plenty of beds and bathroom space for everyone. Very spacious and clean. The pool is a definite plus. It was very clean and the yard immaculate. It had a great fenced in yard and was perfect to let our dog roam without fear of her escaping through a hole! Overall we would definitely rent this home again! Kudos to Port A Escapes also for their great service!
We are glad to hear that you had a great time and enjoyed your stay. Give us a call when you are ready to come back and do it again.

Barefoot in Port Aransas
by Paul D.
House worked out great for us. We had 13 for Christmas then got to relax for a couple of weeks. Short walk to beach and the sea food is outstanding. Second time for us and still fun.

EVERYTHING FROM THE FIRST CALL WAS GREAT. THE HOUSE WAS ABOVE WHAT WE EXPECTED . WE ALL WANT TO COME BACK AND DO IT AGAIN. ALL OF US GIVE PROPS TO PORT A STAFF. THANK YOU !!
Perfect for multiple familes
by Christyn B.
This house was PERFECT - easy walk to the beach. We had 4 familes, all with kids, and this accommodated us well. Plenty of room for kids and bathrooms/closets big enough for a pack-n-play! We'll stay here again!

Barefoot Dreams come true
by Anna B.
House was perfect for our group of 10. Lots of space and all the amenities required for a fun weekend. The weather didn't prove to be so great so we were forced to stay indoors for half of our trip but the space the house provided allowed us to play games, cook, watch tv, even dance some without feeling crowded. Would highly recommend this home.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your home along with all of its amenities. Hopefully the weather will be a little nicer when you're ready to come back to Port A.

Our family stay at Barefoot Escapes
by Vickie D.
This was our second stay at Barefoot Escapes. The house is great for our family because there is so much room. The men enjoy the patio and the little outdoor bar downstairs. It is the perfect place for them to cook and enjoy their adult beverages. The house is well kept and the kitchen accommodating.
by Stephanie B.
Wonderful! All was nice and clean with all the comforts of home.
Port A Vacation
by Scott R.
Great vacation. Fit 7 adults and a baby comfortably. Cooked large meals and the kitchen had everything needed including BBQ outside. 5 minute walk to the beach but no direct ocean view. We rented a golf cart and was easily able to get around town and to the beach without actually needing a car.
by Jackie G.
Everyone was very impressed with the house, they all chose their rooms and unpacked. The fifth bedroom was use by someone who didn't mind the smell. Once the AC was turned down to 72 you didn't notice it as much. She was happy to have her own bed & bath.
by Lora L.
The vacation rental was very roomy and clean. Was also close to beach and shops. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again next time.
Excellent customer service and accomodations!
by Daniel L.
Our first time staying in Port A. From the get go, the experience was excellent! The experience started with an awesome mobile app that provided confidence and detailed information on our forthcoming visit/rental. Upon arrival, the rental Staff was prompt, very friendly and they made it QUICK AND SEAMLESS to check in and out. The house was perfect. The distance to the beach was about a block, low traffic and close to stores and restaurants. The house was clean, comfortable and literally had all of the amenities of home (cookware, grill, pots/pans, TV's...you name it!). It was a home away from home!
Great stay in Port A!
by Gayle F.
Barefoot Dreams was the ideal house for our family. Everything as stated, if not better. Master Suite and deck wonderful! Kitchen couldn't be more convenient or better stocked with anything you could possibly need...we opted to give the many wonderful restaurants lots of our business to give Mom a break. Would highly recommend this property!

What a great house. It was amazing!
by Patricia G.
We rented this house for the month of December for the family. It is so comfortable, close to the beach and pet friendly. I would definitely rent again. We found a agent and are going to purchase a home of our I own.

Awesome Beach Retreat
by Donna W.
This house was perfect for our family. Our children are all adults and the way the bedrooms were furnished worked perfectly. The house is within blocks of the beach. Had a really awesome memorable family vacation!
Family Port A Trip 2014
by Stephanie M.
Great location. Was able to walk to beach. House was big enough for our family. Yard guy however mowed and did not blow the grass trimmings so had grass all over our stuff that was on the driveway under the house and had to sweep it all up. Other than that it was a great place to stay.
Nice place to be in Port A.
Nice house. Easy walk to the beach. Would stay there again.
Great 4 days in Port Aransas
by Albert M.
I loved the house. The beach house was everything we had hoped it would be. It was just like the pictures on the virtual tour. Everything was in great condition. The air-conditioning, tv, washer/dryer all worked well.
We did not have internet at first, but after we called them, they had someone over to get it fixed in an hour. The house was close to the beach. It had a very big backyard for our dogs. The grass was green. We enjoyed the front deck very much with the chairs, table, and turtle bench, and also the back small deck. Getting to sit out on the decks with the beauty of the sunrise and sunset along with the palm trees and sea breeze was great.
The private room downstairs was great for our youngest daughter and husband. The bar with stools came in handy down below the steps. We cleaned and cooked shrimp down there. The lighting was great. We appreciated the lights in the backyard and back steps. We cooked hamburgers on the grill in the backyard. It was a beautiful house. We loved all the furnishings and decorations. We also appreciated all the kitchen dishes and utensils. We would love to be in that house again sometime.
by Diana B.
House was very clean and decorated very nice. My family and I stayed for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Just a short walk to the beach.

Good times at Barefoot Dreams
by Ronnie V.
Great location, lots of room and lots of fun for our family.
by Laura C.
I took the staff with the families on our annual vacation & we stayed here. It worked out Great! Beautiful location and home. Plenty of room for the kids to run and spread out. I would recommend this home to anyone, either a small family or large groups!
by Stephen D.
I booked the property to celebrate my birthday. There were 4 set of couples for this event. This location was perfect for all of us. No one had to sleep on a twin bed or a futon. But the room was spacious enough if we need a little more room. The property was updated and well kept. Minus the construction on the main road (not a property issue)...we absolutely loved everything. I plan to be using this exact property for all my future bookings. It was also extremely convenient to the beach!
Barefoot Dreams Carmody Family Weekend
by Stacy N.
It was the first time my entire family has ever gotten together for vacation time. This proved we could do it! We loved being close to the beach - walking distance. There was ample parking space for all the vehicles. Thank you!
by Michael M.
Place was even better than the pictures. Would definitely stay again!
Fun, Fun, Fun
Slept 13 of us very comfortably. Wish we could've stayed longer. Loved that we could bring the pups.

Great vacation rental
by Robin K.
Only complaint was that we did not have access to Internet as described. Otherwise, we really enjoyed this clean, modern house, being within walking distance of the beach was a real plus, with easy access to town also.
This was one of our best vacation places ever! Clean,lots of room and close to the beach. Loved the kitchen area with large island to serve from. Would have liked all the TV's to have been hooked up to cable as we could only get the one in the living room to work. Only complaint other wise would be bring your own can opener and toaster as those did not work well.
Thank you Jody for your review! There is a brand new smart TV in bedroom! Sorry for the inconvenience! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to seeing you again!
Great house. Great location. TV did not work and BBQ grill needs to be updated, but perfect otherwise.
Great Stay At Port A !!!
The place is walking distance to the beach and the house can accommodate a large family. If you like Port Aransas its a great place to stay.
4th of July stay
by R. Scott W.
Loved the house. Loved the location. House had 4 baths, not 5 as advertised. Only real problem was a nonworking tv that we reported 1st day. Next day repairman came said another guy needed to come and we did not ever see anybody else. The location to the beach is very convenient. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the evening and just people watching
Home away from home
by Chris C.
12 friends and family easily fit into this rental. Beautifully furnished so you felt like you were at home. Close to te beach so the little red wagon worked great with the little ones but far enough away that it was quiet all night. Overall, a great time. We' ll be coming back.
by Wayne J.
Great location and lot's of fun.
We had a blast
by John C.
We stayed at Barefoot Dreams in mid april. The house was extra spacious and very nice on the inside and out. The backyard quite large and there was plenty of parking. I would definitely recommend.
This is a wonderful home with lots of space and a great location. We particularly liked the front and back decks so we could enjoy the morning and evening sun. We have stayed here for 3 years and hope to be back.
