Good house/not maintained well

This house overall was perfect for our family of 14 and the location was good. The pool was nice and bigger than we thought. The cleanliness and maintenance of this home was poor in my opinion . The pool was dirty when we arrived. Several pillow cases looked as if they had not been changed. There were ants all around the pool area and trash that looked like it had been there a while. There were some loose boards on the deck and the downstairs bedroom smelled like mildew so much we had to buy air fresheners to try to hide the smell. When we arrived the trash had not been picked up yet and the kitchen was lacking some items . We did not receive enough towels for 14. I called about all of our issues and they did bring more towels and pillow cases right away, but they were not helpful about the dirtiness of the pool/bugs and trash all over until I had my husband call and then it was taken care of right away.

Great place for larger group

Very spacious and great location, would definitely stay again. Pictures accurately reflect the space. Only minor complaint is that we were planning on grilling a few nights and unfortunately the grill it states to be on property is in terrible condition and we weren’t able to use. Overall great experience and would come back.

This place has it all!!

by Bruce R.
We came to celebrate our daughter’s high school graduation, with family. We had 11 people and it accommodated everyone nicely. The home layout is prefect for fun and visiting with everyone. Then there is the pool that was the perfect size and has shade. Short walk to the beach. 10 / 10 would rent it again!
Thank you for being our guest! We hope to see you again soon!

Birthday Weekend on the Beach

by John F.
Fantastic house to comfortably sleep 14. Pool was great and the management company was wonderful, had a weird leak with one of the outdoor showers and they were on within an hour on a friday to address the issue.
Thank you for your high marks! We hope to see you at Barefoot Dreams soon!

Family mini vacay...

We had plenty of room for our family. The private pool was great. This was our first time with vacation rental. Location close to the beach was a plus. With 7 adults 2 teenagers 2- 4 yr olds & a newborn. No complaints....we’re looking forward to another stay. Great time had by all!!!
Thank you for your high marks! We hope to see you again very soon at Barefoot Dreams!

Family Vacation

by Mark C.
Great place we have stayed here the past 3 years and it looks like it was just getting better. We have this place booked again for Labor Day weekend. It’s close to the beach, great room for parking and nice pool. It was even better when it included the Go Cart but I heard they did away with that ��. That WAS the cherry on top. Especially using the Island Outfitters shout to them and their service with the carts. Please bring it back!!! Overall it’s a great house for large families. Port A Escapes has always been great with any issues and easy check in and check outs.
We cannot wait to have to stay with us again! Thank you for your continuing trust in Port A Escapes!

Family vacation

We rented barefoot dreams for our family. 8 adults and 6 children under 7. The home was clean and we loved the open floor plan. Everyone had a place to sleep and we loved the pool. It was perfect for.our little ones. We used our golf cart to make quick trips to the beach and to town.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us! Please let us know when you are to plan your next escape!
May 23, 2023 - Escapia

Great location

This house was perfect for our family. The location is a block rom the beach. The management was very responsive.
Thank you for allowing us to host your family!

Loved it

by Phil A.
House was huge, very clean and in a great location. Only issues were the light in the pool and canopy didn’t work. I didn’t have access to the upper balcony as is was locked from the outside. And the outdoor shower to rinse sand wasn’t working. Maintenance did show up Saturday morning but couldn’t fix it. A little bummed I didn’t get the whole package. Would I stay here again? Heck yeah! I understand that with a rental it may not be perfect. So out of 5 stars I would say 4.5. I’m confident these issues will be addressed. See ya in September!
Thank you for your review! These issues are being addressed!

Fun times at Barefoot Dreams!

by Ann S.
Barefoot Dreams was a great place for our family vacation. The location was very convenient....close to town and the beach! The 4 bathrooms were a definite plus but, I do have to say the private pool was absolutely the best!!!
So Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for staying with us at Port A Escapes!
September 24, 2022 - Escapia


by Mark C.
We’ve stayed here 3 years in a row and it has only gotten better with the addition of a beach cart that get delivered and picked up at the property. The location is great right by the beach the house was clean. Our only complaint was that we were bitten by ants in whatever room we stayed at. They were coming out of the wall sockets and climbing up your charging cable. But overall it was great even though it rained all weekend we still made the best of it and had a blast. I would recommend this house to anyone.
Oh no! We will check on that issue ASAP. Thank you so much for staying with us at Port A Escapes!

Great Beachhouse!!!

by Denise S.
We loved returning to Barefoot Dreams on Sandcastle Dr. Our first time post-Harvey and post -Covid, the only thing we missed we’re the o po angry items that are usually there. BUT we had use of a golf cart! Not a bad trade off. So bring your own sugar, spices, oil, and shampoo, and be ready to have a great time at the beach and pool. Plenty of room inside and out. Our family of 10 did NOT want to leave!
Thank You so much for staying with us at Port A Escapes!!

Vacation Getaway

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!

Best trip ever

by Steve M.
Great stay. This is our 5th time in this house. It has everything you need. The pools is great. Everything works as it should. The house was very clean when we got there. My only suggestion would be to replace the shower head in the downstairs apartment.

Port Aransas get away

by Irene H T.

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 Aracely 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.

Never Disappoints

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!
July 19, 2021 - Escapia

Great house!

by Kevin K.
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.

Absolutely Perfect!

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.
June 16, 2021 - Escapia

Family vacation

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!

by Terry D.
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.

Best Month Ever

by Steve M.
This is the 4th year we have rented this house, and it never disappoints. Not only is it a great house and pool, it has all the pots, pans, etc. you need. Everything worked as it should. All in all a great vacation. The fish biting also helped the experience.
November 5, 2020 - Escapia

Absolutely Wonderful

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.

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!

Great Location

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.

Great November Vacation

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!

September 2018

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!

Wonderful stay

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.

Family vacay 2018

by Maggie A.
We stayed here Aug2-5 and it was very clean and spacious. The decor was super cute and fit the beach theme. I never made it to the top floor but the family upstairs said the rooms were huge! I did get to see the main floor rooms and they were very spacious. I stayed downstairs and will admit the only thing that bothered me was the strong mildew smell in the bottom rooms. It really messed with my allergies so if you have allergies maybe stay upstairs just got plug ins and it helped while we were there as far as the smell. We had so much fun in this house I've already booked for next year!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Family Fun Getaway

by Julie L.
The house was perfect for 7 adults and 6 kids and no one felt crowded. It was centrally located to the beach and town which was very convenient. The pool was amazing as was the outdoor area. Everything was so well maintained and we all had a wonderful time. We can't wait until next year because we will definitely be back.

Excellent Home!

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.

February 2017 Stay

by Monica M.
We rented Barefoot Dreams for month of February 2017. The location was fantastic about a block walk to the beach. The house was as shown, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The new pool area outside was a wonderful oasis! Just beautiful. Pool was to cold to use but we were outside daily enjoying the sun in a very pleasing environment. We had plans to go and see so many things but with the weather being so great all month it was hard to want to go anywhere. Our days consisted of spending time at pool, beach and back to pool area. The screened in porch is a great feature also and we had several dinners out there. The only thing that could make it nicer is if there was a light and ceiling fan on porch. You can tell the owner takes a lot of pride in this property and Port A is great to work with. If there is a problem they are there in no time to address any issues. We are renting this property again next year.

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.

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.

Memorial weekend

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.
May 21, 2015 - Escapia

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' name it!). It was a home away from home!
January 3, 2015 - Escapia

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!
September 23, 2014 - Escapia

Perfect Location

Property was as described. Location is best. We didn't use the first floor bedroom because of a musty smell. Top two floor were perfect.

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.
August 7, 2014 - Escapia

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.

Family Vacation at Barefoot Dreams

by Vickie D.
The house was cool, the beds were comfortable and clean. We had four couples and 2 small grandchildren. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space yet all gather in the family room. Location was great as we could walk to kids to the beach.
June 20, 2013 - Escapia


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!

Place was even better than the pictures. Would definitely stay again!
