Will definitely stay again!
by Christy P.
I will most definitely be staying here again in the future! The condo was cute, clean, and there were plenty of beds, towels, and linens. The walk to the beach is a quick 3-5 minutes and it's on a boardwalk so you're not trudging through hot sand with all your stuff. They have an outdoor shower to hose off the sand before you go into your condo. The pool has an amazing pool house area with ping pong table and a kitchenette and lounge area, etc. Overall great stay and we will come back!
Thank you for being our guest! Please come back soon!
Great view & quick walk to the beach.
Super comfy beachy decor condo for 6 guests. More than enough space for 6. Cute and functional kitchen with nice appliances. Love the parking right under the condo. Good size pool with nice view of ocean.
Thank You so much for staying with Port A Escapes!
by Jacquelyn O.
We always have a great time in Port A. We appreciate so much the responsiveness from Port Escapes when there is an issue. The property management has been working to improve the site. Love the heated pool and new kitchen ware.
Thanks for writing the review, we really appreciate your feedback. Hope to see you again soon!

Full Moon Weekend Stay
by Daniel Z.
The inside was nice. The outside was muddy and the place was difficult to find.

Vista Del Mar?
The condo was better than expected, the view was worse than expected
by rachel s.
Close to the beach and clean. This is all that really matters and it’s both of those things. Lots of linens and plenty of dishes / Kitchen tools. The cellular service/ date and WiFi is bad but I think the whole island struggles with that. I didn’t realize there was no washer or dryer or garbage disposal Not a deal breaker but I’ll always confirm that future rentals have those Amenities.
Thank you for the review! We do have almost 300 homes/condo's to choose from! I'm sure there is one that fits your needs! We look forward to seeing you in the future!
by CINDY A.
The condo was very clean and had a great view of the gulf. We will be back soon.

by Leann M.
This Place Exceeded My expectations, I went for My Bachlorette weekend and it was So Comfy and cozy...the beach access was a Major Plus and The View Was Stunning! I would definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you to the people who keep up with this place, it was Awesome!
by Allison A.
This condo was perfect and just what we were looking for. So convenient to the beach and perfect for walks into town. We have stayed many places in Port A but this was the best. Also a shout out to Port A Escapes for being so awesome and helpful before during and after our trip. I will definitely call them directly next time and save myself the Internet searching!

Port A is Great!!
We had a great time in Port A as always. This was a new location for us and we had a great time. All went smooth from making the reservation on line to checking in and out and everything in between.

First Vacation to Port Aransas
by Naarah H.
It was great! No concerns!
SPRING BREAK 2018
by Victoriano V.
The condo was completely furnished with all neccessesties for the kitchen bath which was great. Was very clean ... outside area was neat considering the other properties around us were still not clean up from Harvey but this location was fairly clean up outside..... Check in time would be so much better at 2:00 PM the 4PM is so late for the money you pay........
We loved this condo! Our only complaint was we wish the living area had more seating so we
Could sit comfortably! Loved the kitchen table - we played cards one evening! There were 32 stairs to climb which doesn't seem like a bunch until you've done it 50x.
Rent a cart to ride around town in - so much fun!!! Overall loved this place!
Spring Break 2017
The location was perfect. The unit was clean. The decor was cute. The property could use some updating, the playscpae was very old and the sand full of fire ants. The deck had rotten boards and the secondary tv didn't work. For the money it was worth it and we had a great time.

Excellent. Halloween was a great time to come. They had a pumpkin carving on Saturday on the Beach, and the trick or treating at Chanel Vista was the best I had ever seen. Grandkids Loved it!! Property was great!
We are glad to hear you and your grandkids enjoyed your Halloween stay. Hope to see you again next year.

We had a fantastic time. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and the beach access couldn't be better. Check in and check out were both easy, convenient, and low-key. The first thing we did when we got home was to reserve the same apartment for next year. No wifi but that was our only complaint.
We are so please your family enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you soon!
by Pedro J.
Very clean, feels like home, friendly staff at the rental office. Great views from the rooms, ocean view from the pool, boardwalk takes you straight to the beach. We always come back.
Grear condo on the beach!
by Darren W.
We loved our condo! We were so close to everything in town including restaurants and retail stores. We could walk straight to the beach on the Boardwalk located at the bottom of the stairs! It was clean, the rooms were functional, the kitchen had everything you need and the view was wonderful!!
Great place to stay
by Connie S.
I had a great experience with our Minnie vacation. The condo was great but the only thing i didn't like was no TV in one of the rooms.
September 2, 2015 - Escapia
Great location, full equipped condos, and nice views.
Very Impressed by Our First Stay in Port A !
Port Aransas Escapes provided very reliable and professional service. The link to the website they provided helped us to plan all aspects of our stay, including access to area activities. This was our first trip to the Port A area and we really enjoyed it. Location of the property and proximity to the beach and all conveniences was great, and the unit was in pristine condition.
GREAT Condo to Rent!!
by Marlene Jeannette G.
I rented this unit for myself and my 4 kids (ages 30, 27, 22 & 12). It couldn't have been more perfect. Was VERY cute, great art, great bed choices and the kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed. HIGHLY recommend this unit and we will be back!

Family introduction to Texas coast
by Robert A.
I had to take my California born wife and daughter to Port Aransas to experience classic Texas coastal beauty. It had been 35 years since my last visit and was thrilled to see it was the same old Port A but with modern improvements. The condo 505BH at Beachhead condos was just what the Dr ordered. Right on the beach and laid out perfectly with classic beach theme, you could tell the owners take great pride in this unit! The folks at Port A Escapes were very friendly and gave us great advice on local rest scene. We rented carts for 2 days and never used our car after that, what a fun time cruising up and down the beach. Don't miss out on renting one of these fun vehicles. Can't wait to go back and get another much needed recharge to the old batteries.

Quant and Convenient
Condo was nice and clean, and it is in a convenient location with easy access to the beach and Port A. I would stay again.
August 19, 2014 - Escapia
by Andrea A.
My boyfriend, sisters, brother and his girlfriend rented the condo for a short weekend at the beach. The condo was clean and the grounds well kept. With both bathrooms only accessible through the bedrooms, I would recommend this particular condo for no more than 4 adults. It was also a bit awkward with one room housing two twin beds, but the setup would have been ideal for a family.
Great place! Great location!
Our family of 4 stayed at Vista Del Mar for 3 nights. Access to the beach is easy and the pool was nice! We enjoyed our stay!

Terrible weather for the beach, but the place was nice.
by Glenn S.
Cold & rain were not what we hoped for, but we were unfamiliar with the area and had a chance to explore a bit. This unit was wonderfully decorated and we can't imagine a nicer one.
November 13, 2013 - Escapia
Perfect rental for beach vacation
Perfectly located, nice view, really clean and beautifully decorated. Just need to have the carpet updated and most of the kitchen utensils as well, as some are so old, they don't even seem safe to use.

Great Retreat Time
This condo is one of the best that I've stayed in at Port A. The décor is great and the kitchen was complete with everything that you need.

by Jonathan K.
The reason I marked down for amenities is because the TV in the master bedroom did not work at all. When we called to have the maintenance guy check on it they took all day to come. Then told us yep it's broken we will have to get the owners to get a new one. So we didn't have one for the whole stay. Also, in the guest bedroom they did not have cable. The only options was to watch movies on a DVD. Which would have been okay had we known but did not bring any movies b/c we thought we would have cable.

Family Reunion Weekend visit
by Mary Liz B.
We rented 3 different condos for our family reunion. We decided on these three based upon photos and speaking to the representative. However, we would have liked to have known that the room we wanted the best waterfront view actually had the worst. And we especially needed to know that all rooms were on the third floor. One of our guests was elderly, and several were very young children, so the extra flight of stairs made trips to and from the room quite difficult. Desk staff upon arrival did their job, but did seem a bit frazzled and not very happy or friendly.

Bathroom needed bathmats,pool bathroom to cold overall great trip
by Carmen H.
We enjoyed our first time at beach with 3 very active little boys ages 4,5,and 6. they loved the playground and the pool. we enjoyed the beach it was a long walk on the pier and next time will take the car to beach front with all our beach apparatus we wanted to set up. the walk too and from beach was to much for us and all our chairs, toys and tent. we loved having a kitchen ,made eating in less expensive. HaHa
main thing read all the papers your given at check in great info on unit. yes its two flights of stairs, but we found different ways to cut down on stairs. I know its a big deal when stairs are not your thing. consider it a
mini vacation workout. we did. enjoy the moments. and the laughter of little boys enjoying the adventure.

Great time at Beach Head
by Jay D.
Great view, great board walk, great location, had a great time!
Kids had a great time
by Tilleri D.
We came in for the weekend. My dad was staying at surf side RV so this location was great. It had everything we needed and a great view. My 4 yr olds first time at the beach-he loved it!!! Thanks again for sharing your condo.
by Ann W.
My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the property overall, including location etc. The only complaint we and all other tenants we spoke with was the lack of internet service. In my opinion this can only harm your business as in this day of needing instant information access, word does get around about the poor service. THIS IS A MOST NECESSARY REQUIREMENT THAT NEEDS UPDATING ASAP
December 3, 2012 - Escapia
Everything was just right. This is a wonderful place to stay. We would love to stay much longer next time.

Another great stay in Port A!
by Laura H.
We love this condo! The location within the complex, the location on the island, and especially the very thoughtful and fun decor... Obviously a lot of love has gone into preparing this home-away-from-home for visitors. We were very comfortable, we made breakfast and one meal a day in the fully-equipped kitchen, and there was plenty of room to spread out when we needed some down time from each other, and then when we wanted to hang out together, there were cards and televisions with DVD players. It was a great stay! We'll be back, but only when this specific condo is available. :)

The only downside was that it was located on the 3rd floor (which they don't mention when you book but the view was great and the place was adorable. Super close to beach & pool.

Refreshed and Re-Newed Friendships
by Vickey J.
My best friend flew in from Cali after not seeing her for 5 years. Myself, Sister and friend drove from Austin and found the Condos very easily. To our delight the room was perfect. 1 queen and 2 double beds, a great view of the gulf from the balcony, and since we brought lots of food, we were very happy the kitchen was well stocked. We had a fantastic time. We will book again soon.
August 30, 2012 - Escapia
Love decor... very nice!
Great location! We had a wonderful time. Would only comment that the apartment is in need of a new can opener (and maybe a blender). Thanks!
The location was perfect, and the condo was in very good condition - not immaculate, but clean. Enjoyed our trip immensely. The view from our deck was slightly obstructed, but we could see the Gulf from our location while sitting on the right side of the deck. I loved the covered parking; really cut down on the additional salt spray on the windows overnight when the winds would pick up. It would really be helpful to put an icemaker or at least ice trays in the freezer. Additional towels would be helpful as well - two towels per person for the whole week is really chintzy. Other than a few minor issues like those mentioned, the experience was very positive. We will most likely be back!
Vista del Mar 505BH
by John B.
We absolutely loved our stay here. It was spotless when we arrived. A short walk to the beach that we walked to every day. No one complained about uncomfortable beds (4 teenage boys)!! There is a journal for all guests to write in and it turns out the owners are from our part of North Texas, and, a big Football rival of ours. We definately plan on doing this at least every year, and requesting this same room. GO CELINA BOBCATS!!!
My stay at Portaescapes

Beach head 505
by Justin A.
Stay was great. The only thing was the view from the bocony, online it showed the view of the playground and vollyball court, but when I got there it was a view of the buildings next door. But thats the only thing other than that everything was great. Will go back for another vist.

The condo was in a great location and everyone was very helpful and nice. It was perfect for kids with the playground and a short walk to the beach. The condo was clean, just a little outdated. We would have liked something a little more up to date for the price.

WE MADE A BIG MISTAKE, Patrick fixed it quick.
by Mike S.
We arrived at 5:30, staff phoned to check our progress and stayed late to check us in. We got to the condo carrying our stuff in, when the wind blew the door closed, both keys locked inside. A quick call through the after hours answering service and Patrick
saved the day. He made a return trip to the office immediately, and gave us another key, smiling cheerfully the whole time. A great guy from Boston, great management, great vacation. Beach was very nice, kids loved it too. See you next summer.
We had a great time
We had a great time. It was the first any of the three families had been in the area!
by Shari K.
I was skeptical because of three flights of stAirs BUT I loved this location and the pool was beautiful with gulf view from the pool which
Beach view is my criteria. We give this a 5
Love the customer service we receive and I will rent from them
We had stayed here before and really enjoy the location right on the beach. The only thing that would improve this condo is to have the big windows cleaned more often so the view out the window would be better.
Also, I the 11am check out is just tooo early especially for Easter Sunday. I would think that during the off-season, that people should be able to stay until really late on Sunday (about 4pm). If you required a two-night stay and allowed for a late Sunday check out, your properties would be booked
we enjoyed our stay at vista del mar. Accomodations were a little older than we expected, but very clean and comfy. I think it was overpriced and the extra fees for cleaning were a bit high. I would recommend this place though. Great service by the lady at coldwell.

Property was clean, comfortable and a convenient location. It had a limited view of the ocean. Had a good time and would stay there again.
