“Beautiful home - perfect for an extended family gathering!”
We had a wonderful time! We arrived and the house was beautiful with very good upkeep. Our only concern was that clearly the pool had not been cleaned from previous occupants and was disappointed it had not been cleaned - however, after a phone call to the property management resulted in a pool coming out the very next day and cleaning the pool. Otherwise, a wonderful place and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
“The stay was everything i needed, very nice stay”
“Very Comfortable and Well Equipped”
We took our kids and grandkids to the beach and stayed at the Island Star. Just a short walk to the beach or you can drive. The house is equipped with everything including pool and spa. Very clean and furnished beautifully. Plenty of room for the whole family. You could not ask for a nicer accomodation at the beach. We had a wonderful time.
“Fantastic wedding and reception”
Got married on the gazibo between the beach and houses. Wonderful view of the Gulf and beach. Reception at the house. Had family from out of state with us. Everyone enjoyed the stay and loved the house. We could not get the jacussi bath in the master bath to work and the ice maker would not despense ice thru the door. That was the only issues we had. Other than that, we had a great time and possibly have a family reunion there in the future.
Not enough towels Very poor pots and pans Outside access to pool/hot tub only- have to disturb inside guests. Would be great to have access to pool/hottub from main floor. Hot tub NEVER got hot For cost of property- would not recommend.
“PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY!!!”
We arrived, and the house was even better than expected! We came with a group of 14, and just as described there were beds for all. The downstairs is an open room with several beds, and there is a private bedroom with a private bathroom on that level as well. The entry to the pool is thru this bedroom, so to allow for privacy we opened the fence, so the kids did not tromp thru the bedroom. The boardwalk is a bit of a distance, but we walked it everyday, you cant beat the scenery, so why not? We would also have one car drive and drop off all our beach chairs and supplies and then drive back and walk down. The only part we did not like, was not having the downstairs connected to the upstairs. We have younger children, and it was kind of unnerving the thought of them being in the downstairs and they would have to walk outside in the middle of the night if they needed to come upstairs to find their parent. If they were teenagers I would not have worried as much. As a mother, I was constantly walking down (through the outside) to check on them in the middle of the night. We wound up setting beds up on the couches for the younger guys who were a bit nervous about being so far from the parents. The home is well equipped, clean and beautifully maintained. I would return, but need to rethink the bedroom situation. For the adults we did have a hard time deciding bedrooms for us, because one bedroom is huge and is the master bedroom, with a private balcony, and large bathroom -- blows away all the other bedrooms. We had to draw straws to decide who got that room! thank you for a wonderful vacation!
“Island Star really a star”
707 Park Place was a dream site for our extended family reunion. The house was spacious, clean, cool and/or warm as conditions required. My gourmet wife was happy she brought a lot of her own specialty cooking tools, but the appliances performed well. Access to the beautiful beach was easy - by car or on foot via the private boardwalk. While only the young and the brave dared the coolness of the swimming pool in December it was a welcome addition that was well-maintained by weekly visits of a cleaning pro. The hot tub needs a more consistent thermostat and entry and exit is tough on seniors. For golf addicts like me, the nearness of Newport Dunes and the warm professionalism of it's staff was wonderful. As the family came and went via Corpus Christi airport, which proved reasonably convenient, my wife and I spent a month at Island Star. It was a great month!
The house was fine but we had old and young people so all the stairs were a challenge. Beds are very high so again young and old are challenged. Overall a good experience.
The house is amazing and we will definitely rent it again. I only have 2 beefs with the house though. One is that the walk to the beach is not exactly short. It does only take a hot minute but if you are carrying any coolers or anything of significance then you are taking your car, period. Also, there is no grill at the house. No gas grill i understand but at least put a charcoal grill in there for us to use.
“Lots of Fun in Port A”
The house worked very well for us. We had 3 families that included one 3 month old and two 9 month old infants. We also had a 3 and a 5 year old along with 6 adults. We needed lots of space and sleeping areas and the house provided that very well. The pool was terrifice especially for the 5 and 3 year old kids. The beach was pristine with clean sand and very clear blue water all the way to the shore. The fact that we could drive up to the beach is terrific because of the baby stuff we had to carry. The bigger kids enjoyed the board walk to and from the beach. Overall the experience was very good and we are planning to come back in two years when the babies get a little bigger.
