“Port Aransas Espcapes”
The location was excellent. You couldn't get closer to the beach. The floor was buckled in the living room, 2 dining chairs were completely split down the middle. One of the kitchen drawers fell out when opened. There was no refrigerator handle on the door. Kitchen cabinets were badly chipped and scratched. The linoleum floor was peeling off in both bathrooms. The entire place needed some TLC. Carpeted stairs needed a good shampooing.
“Great location & functional; could have been a bit nicer/cleaner”
On the upside, the location - on the beach and close enough to restaurants, etc - was great and the layout of the home was neat and furniture/dishes/etc were clean. On the downside, the main room floor had considerable warping, the garage was pretty dirty/dangerous (relevant as that's where the supposed stash of beach toys were said to be located but were not found amongst the old furniture, etc), and some of the glasses were chipped/unsafe for drinking (and the A/C couldn't be dialed down below 72) --- none of which was a big deal and didn't keep us from having an overall positive experience, but not quite what you'd expect for ~$700/night.
“RUN DOWN VERY OLD”
We went on a family vacation with our friend that has beast cancer and the condition of the home was very poor. The kitchen smelled like an old bar. The a/c had a mind of it's own. It was windy and raining the house was leaking from some of the windows and it felt like the house was going to collapse. Thank god we survied. The pool is worse than a Motel 6. We turned on the dish washer and it leaked all over the kitchen floor. The 2 best things about the house was the short distance to the beach and the washer and dryer. Sorry but this house will not be revisited by our family.
“Needs a lot of work”
Frankly the exterior of this unit is bad (rotten siding coming off, balcony supports leaning, balcony coming loose from the house on the left side, etc.) We stayed here 2 years ago and I gave it a 5 star review despite some minor things wrong. I'm not that picky about sticking doors or a little buckle in the floor. We had a great time again this year but I just can't understand why the owner doesn't repair some of the deterioration of the exterior of the house. The houses next door (east side only) have been kept up, painted, and have new balconies. I think the balcony of this unit is seriously unsafe. We won't book this again unless the exterior is fixed and the balcony is completely replaced.
“First Time Visit From Houston”
I was very satisfied with the location of the house and the view. The house was clean and everything, appliances, stove, AC etc were in working order. I was very disappointed in the condition of several areas of the house. To be specific, in the kitchen, the left drawer next to the oven was clearly broken when we walked into the kitchen. Pots and pans could be updated. The sliding glass door to the balcony was cloudy due to moisture between the glass. This made it difficult to see the beach. One side of the window looks like there is a bubble in the glass. The ceiling in the shower on the main floor as well as the ceilings in 2 of the bedrooms have paint that is clearly bubbled up and ready to fall off. These things stuck out to me the most. For the price charged, I was disappointed to walk in and find these issues.
“Don't Stay Here!”
Condo looked nothing like the pictures shown ,very misleading ! The first 24 hours only one shower for 10 people, because faucets weren't installed in upstairs shower ! There was dog pooh under dining table from previous guests stay! There was mold in downstairs bathroom above shower! The hardwood floors in living room are buckled not to mention overall entire condo was filthy. My Family has stayed at Port Royal for over 15 years and decided to try a beach house for a change , needless to say we will be returning to Port Royal next year.
“Our First Family Beach Vacation Getaway”
We all had a Great time! Everyone was very comfortable, everything you needed and more was provided. We brought more with us than we needed to have but this was our first time to stay in a rental home. Couldn't have gotten a closer spot to the ocean unless you were in it! The balcony and swing were my favorites. Coffee in the AM watching and listening to the ocean and birds, also saw dolphins, wish we could do that everyday. Absolutely loved our experience, so thankful our family could get together and enjoy it, would definitely recommend to anyone and hope to make this a yearly family excursion!!
“Lost Colony #6”
We loved the location and that is why we came back to the same condo. It looked like on the website that the condo had been updated, but when we got there it had not. There is a leak form the upstars bathroom down to the downstairs bathroom. It looks like the wall above the downstairs bathroom is rotting and maybe growing mold. The upstairs faucet on the tub was hard to turn off, so the water kept running. The front door when you closed it shorted out the light in the hall way. The overall look of the place is bad. Lots of rust and decaying wood on the deck. One brace on the balcony was pulled lose from the structure. If we come back next year we will try another unit. Over all our stay was great mostly because of the location of the condo.
“Needs Remodel. 2nd floor deck is not safe”
Great location!! Needs paint and general repair. 2nd floor deck needs to be replaced. Deck boards are rotten and are not safe
“Could be any closer to the beach”
Fabulous location. The property is in need of some TLC as age along w/ wear and tear is evident.
