This location is beautiful and the condo was excellent. Fishing from the pier, swimming in the pool, or just enjoying the spectacular views was perfect. Second year our family stayed at this condo.
Thank you for trusting Port A Escapes to host your family again! Please let us know when you are ready to make plans for your next trip to Channel View!

The views !!!!

clean, large, perfect views, close to everything

GREAT Family Rental!
by Lindsay R.
The deck is incredible and there was a space for everyone inside.
Hope you come back and make more memories with us
We loved our stay in the penthouse, the views were gorgeous! Condo was clean and great for our family. Was pretty well stocked but I would advise to bring some extra supplies, we usually do anyway such as an extra roll of paper towels, trash bags, foil, etc. with a large group we go through things fast. My only comment is the pool guy was cleaning the pool about 10am and said it would be 2-3 hours until it was swimmable bc of the chemicals...the sign says the pool opened at 9 or 10 and he did not post a special sign to notify guests of this delay. Other than that everyone was very friendly and helpful and we would stay here again!
We are very sorry for any inconvenience the pool person might have caused. Thank you for staying with us and hope you come back
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Channelview 305 Penthouse!
by Jackie R.
This rental was by far the best experience we have had while on vacation at Port A! The Channelview property was superbly maintained and looked awesome! The penthouse 305 was immaculate, had everything and more than what we needed for a family of 4, and just made our trip all the more special. The wrap around deck was the main focus of our stay and you couldn't ask for better views of the ships coming into the channel. The private pier was a highlight for my husband, even though we didn't catch anything, the girls and I enjoyed looking off the cleanest pier I had ever seen and the playing in the awesome new pool! The WIFI was excellent and satisfied my 10 and 9 year old girls with Netflix and their tablets in the evenings. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. Wish the master had a King bed, but bed was comfortable. LOVED the showers! 2 showerheads in the master was heaven! Appliances all appeared to be new and were awesome. 2 icemakers in the fridge, we never ran out of ice. BBQ grill was a little dated, burners did not want to stay on and no brush to clean grill but we improvised and it worked out fine. Had a lovely fish dinner from my husbands boat trip with Deep Sea Headquarters. Girls and I spent a day at the beach collecting seashells and playing in the waves. Would like to see a better mop and broom for guests, but what was there worked. The gate code changes on Tuesdays so make sure to get the new code before leaving the property. We called and the property management were super friendly and got us the new code right away! We would definitely recommend Channelview 305 and Port A Escapes for future trips!
We are glad you had a great time! Please come back again soon!

Thank you for your kind review and your continued trust with Port A Escapes in making your beach escape a memorable one!
by Chase C.
We have always wanted to rent the Penthouse and finally did it! We will be back every year. It did not disappoint!!
Happy to hear you had a nice stay! We look your next stay!
Great Place to Stay
6 family members from all over TX met for a "catch up" stay at Channelview 305. It was a perfect location and lovely on all accounts. Very large, right on the channel. We could sit on the deck and watch the large ships in the channel. Could even Google them and get information on each one! 305 was clean, beautifully decorated. Fishing pier was great, especially at night. We will definitely stay there again!!
Thank you for your wonderful review! (And the tip about the ships!) Happy you had a good time! We look forward to being a part of future "catch up" stays!
by ESTELLA S.
It's a beautiful home eveything was awesome only thing bad was our ice box was not working had to buy ice to keep our meat from going bad and our grankkids were a little disappointed that the pool was closed on sunday
Channelview is the only place to stay in Port A.
by Elizabeth G.
We have stayed at Channelview many times prior to this visit, but this was our first in the penthouse. Absolutely fabulous. There is still much work needed to be completed on other units and the marina, but noise was not too big of a factor. The new pier and pool were great. The Chaney's did a marvelous job with their unit and so glad they list for rental. You will see us again :)
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again real soon.
Port A Family Vacation
by Loraine Y.
Overall it was a great stay. We have been staying at Channelview for over 10 years. We love the new pool. Our room needs a little updating at least some touch up on the paint. We also recommend putting a tv above the fireplace. When the kids werent in the swimming pool they were playing games and that left the adults without a tv. The biggest disappoint was the elevator it broke down 2 times during our visit. My father was stuck downstairs till 10 pm one day and on the last day he went down to get a cart to pack and never made it back up. He had to shower and wash up downstairs. Very disappointed for him this is his one getaway for the year and it was frustrating not being able to have him back up with the family. We pay a good amount for this room and we would like it to be accessible.
Vacation with the family
by Jan S.
We loved staying in 305. Have stayed at Channelview several times in the past but never the Penthouse. I loved it and loved watching the ships and boats come and go.
Pt Aransas Penthouse
by Thomas K.
The master shower door was off the track. One of the toilets was broken. These both got fixed on the second day. The ice-maker in the refrigerator was broken and needed a new part which did not arrive prior to our departure. We have stayed in this unit on multiple times over the last 10-15 years. It is beautiful and we look forward to our stay this Thanksgiving. Tom
The house and everything was very nice. Only thing is that you could not turn the ac down past 70 degrees and it got a little warm.

We had a wonderful time staying in

Awesome Christmas getaway with a fantastic view of the Channel, only wish the elevator had been working and the deck had been resurfaced for safety.

Port A in October
We had six adults and two children staying in this unit. The place was huge, very nicely appointed. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of cookware, plates, etc. The 4th bedroom was very small, but was perfect for two small children. The half bath attached to the 4th bedroom shared a pocket door with the full bath which worked ok since only the kids used that bathroom. This unit has a gulf view and a partial channel view. The deck was great for watching the ships coming into the ship channel.
by Larry N.
Have stayed here several times in the past, so we knew what to expect, and we were not disappointed. Great place! Port A Escapes stayed in touch and took good care of us
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please let us know when you are ready to come back! Thank you for your kind words, we try our very best.
Our stay in Port A
by Central Tube and B.
Have stayed in this unit either 4 or 5 years in a row for annual fishing trip with a few of our customers. Always a good experience and impressive accommodations. It would be nice however to have a key drop box on location.

Poor customer service!
by Matthew J.
I loved the property we rented at Chanelview no complaints. My complaints are the attitude with the office staff and being charged a $25 key charge after renting a $1,700.00 property.. It cost $2.00 to have a key made. I own several business's and if I ran mine this way I wouldn't have them!

Channelview 305 worth every penny
by Amado C.
Channelview 305 exceeded all expectations. Views from both deck were excellent. We are already planning our return trip. Staff at port a escapes were very nice and couteous. Manager at channelview offered his assistance even though he was not involved in that property, which i thought was nice of him.
Have rented this unit for a stay each year for 3 years now. It was a great experience each time, or would not keep coming back. Great location w/ great view, very clean and accommodating. The only thing I would suggest is having a drop box on location for key return upon departure. Maybe box secured to front door of the unit.
