very good tho the elevator should not be listed--then require a $50 per day charge. It was an attractive added bonus---so we did not use it

Overall the accomodations were very nice, clean, and modern. The neighborhood area was very nice. Kitchen was well equipped. It slept 16 but needed a bit more explanation of exact beds and sleeping arrangements. A few maintenance issues needed attention and a water leak in kitchen caused a bit of an inconvenience with flood alarm that was connected incorrectly to system and caused police to be dispatched. Port Aransas police are very polite and respectful!
Walk to beach was great and neighborhood pool very clean. Management company was very easy to contact by phone and through app.

Everything about this vacation beach home was perfect. Location to beach & town was great! What a wonderful floor plan. You can really tell that a lot of thought went into the planning of this home. Thank you! We are already planning for next year.

The property is well maintained and has easy and close access to beach. Rooms were spacious with king beds in each room and comfortably accommodates party of 12-16 people. Kitchen is well loaded with all the required items.

Rented this house for a fishing tournament team in the Port Aransas area. House was great, would definitely rent again!

We took a student group here for a leadership retreat. Everything was super clean and the accommodations were spot on! I really like the layout of the house- lots of room to hang out and have a good time. This spot is a hop skip and a jump from the water!

House was large and right on the beach. However, there were some issues that we felt were not resolved to our satisfaction, maybe because we were not dealing directly with the owners..
Linda G. July 6, 2016
This was our second year to stay at "A Shore Thing". We absolutely love this house. It is perfect for our large extended family. House is so close to the beach and town. Kids love this place. Community pool and outdoor shower are so great! All of the amenities are so first class. The only negative I have is with the refrigerators. Both times that we stayed we had issues with them not getting cold enough to keep our food from spoiling. Which is a shame to pay this much for such a state of the art house to not have cold refrigerators. We had to use ice chest.
Anonymous September 4, 2015
Everything was great. Had a great time. House is beautiful and well kept. Except: both refrigerators malfunctioned the entire time we were there, as did the elevator. All in all, stuff happens, the rental agency did their best, and we had a great time.

We enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for my family. It had everything we needed , especially in the kitchen. The location was perfect. Just a short walk to the beach and community pool. I would definitely recommend this rental. Thank you for allowing me and my family to enjoy this beautiful home.
Rene M. July 11, 2016
It was great! Enjoyed the house and proximity to town as well as the beach. The construction next door was an eye sore, but other than that a great place to have a family vacation!

We had a great time, over the Sandfest Weekend in April 2017. We were a huge group of 5 couples plus kids & the house was large enough to accommodate all of us. Only thing that threw us off a bit was that the 5 Bedrooms mentioned, included a small room with the convertible sofa couch. I would not have counted that as a Bedroom.
Overall very new house, with all appliances being quite technologically advanced. Almost all of us work in technology field, but still had difficult time figuring out the stove, garbage disposal, etc. But the property managers were quick to respond to any issues we had.

Beach is a quick walk away from this house.
We had a great vacation, and would recommend this house to anyone with a large group/ family.

We rented this for the full occupancy of 14. It had enough beds and what we thought might be a couple of smallish ones, but doable. Get there and find out that 8 of the 14 spots are in one room. Ugh! This house has a fantastic great room/kitchen that mostly made up for the bedroom kids are all adults and prefer privacy for couples. The property is also within walking distance of the beach...also awesome! It was clean as could be and was fully stocked for almost any little thing you could need. Very nice home!
This house would be exceptional for a few couples with a lot of smaller kids.

House was Amazing. It accommodates all, kids and dogs.
Short walk to Beach and pool.

Love it

Beautiful home w amazing appliances. Had trouble operating tv in main room on Thanksgiving. They came the next day but it was extremely inconvenient. Everyone wanted to watch football. Also toilet in jack n Jill never filled. And ice maker on 2nd floor did not work.

We had a wonderful time and will come back. The property is close to the beach, access by boardwalk. Lot of building going on in neighborhood but should be finished by next year. We loved our time spent in Port Aransas. We look to many years of enjoying Texas.

Let me say 1st thing this is a beautiful property! This property was perfect for our large family! The kitchen has everything you need from all the cookware, dishes, flatware, etc. The balconies were enjoyed both in the morning with a cup of coffee and evenings with a glass of wine.
Now for the only problem we had, which maybe would not have been such a big deal if our group would have been smaller and without children. This property has these water sensors when triggered will totally shut off your water. They are so sensitive that they turned off with someone taking a shower. And that's what happened to us. The alarm went off and our water turned off. In order to shut the alarm off we had to contact the property leasing office. It took a little over an hour or so just to turn the alarm off, we still had no water. We were in the process of cooking dinner, taking showers, etc. The water turned off shortly before 5pm and did not come back on until after 9pm. Again maybe not a big deal but considering the timing and what we had in progress. Also the sanitary issue, you can't wash your hands after using the restroom and you have no water to cook and wash while cooking.
Let me say I did not post this for several weeks in hopes I would get a call from the property management owner. For me it would have been as simple as an apology and acknowledge our inconveniences. So, here was my I biggest issue, the way the property management handled or didn't handle the situation. I tried contacting the owner of the property management company, with no results. I called twice with the confirmation that I would receive a return call. I thought the least I deserved was a return call. I feel the property management owner of Port Aransas Escapes totally missed the mark on what good customer service is!!!

We had a great time. The location was wonderful. We didn't drive anywhere. Even with the rain, we still had fun. It was nice to take all our children and grandchildren. That's what it is all about making memories. Thank you for sharing your home for the weekend.
Jerry H. October 30, 2013
Overall a very good experience. Two things that were troublesome, 1. Three of the TV's did not work until a technition fixed the problem on the 2nd day of the stay. 2. The 3rd bottom floor bedroom was a hide-a-bed and I was not pleased with that not being clearly pointed out.
Anonymous June 25, 2014
Everyone had a great time! The house was fantastic! It had every thing and more that we needed during our stay. It was only a short walk to the beach and community pool.
Yolanda S. V. July 25, 2014
We had our annual family Port A vacation in this beach house. It's a very nice house with many wonderful features and plenty of space. The only problem we encountered was the main floor dryer would not work, but there was another downstairs. We would definitely stay here again.
Cheryl C. July 8, 2014
We had plenty of room for everyone to have their on space. We had ages from 75 t 18 months.

Easter weekend 3 Families 7 children. The perfect weekend away from Kingwood. Great location, and the house is amazing. All we kept saying was there was nothing that was forgotten in this home. The kids had a blast ages 4 - 12. Absolutely amazing property. You could not go wrong by staying here. Thank you for the memories. We will rent again soon.
Gilberto G. August 18, 2014
We enjoyed our stay with family at A Shore Thing
Casey B. July 1, 2014
Plenty of space for entertaining, very clean, short walk to beach and pool, awesome kitchen area. Loved it!

Great trip with the family. Highly recommend for anyone else.
Jennifer C. June 10, 2014
We took our own ramp which allowed him to safely enter the elevator. It was a tight fit as he is a power wheelchair user. Someone needed to close the door behind him after he entered. Also, the rooms on the floor with the roll-in-shower were not big enough for him to transfer out of his wheelchair so he slept in the main bedroom on the second floor. Also, the bed was too tall for him but others would not have an issue probably. He did use the master toilet as the other bathroom had a cabinet over the toilet which doesn't work with his toilet chair.
The alarm for water leaks went off and the staff came instantly to find there was no leak. My Mother was home alone and would have been upset had they not come so soon.
The weird algae or seaweed on the beach was the biggest negative but we would stay here again.

This was the third house that I have rented in the BB location! It's is , BY FAR, the best planned house! The accommodations were first class! Everything that was needed to enjoy our family stay was available ! Will definitely rent again and again!
Deborah W. December 29, 2014
The family thanked me over and over for finding this place. We had a great time. The beach was great and so close. The house had plenty of space for everyone and plenty of dishes and everything we needed to make great meals. The elevator was kind of small for wheelchairs but we made it work.

Such a beautiful home and so convenient to the beach. The beds were amazingly comfortable and couches inviting . Appliances were modern and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. Our group of 11 ladies spent many hours on the back balcony reading, visiting and solving the world's problems. It's a "smart house", maybe smarter than us as we had some technical difficulties the first 2 days with the stove top, elevator and TV, but the service professionals were quick to respond. We had a home church service with a keyboard, hymns, the Lord's Supper and a sweet Bible devotion. We called our group The Beach Church of the Sisters Cousins Aunts and Friends. What a fun time we had! A fantastic 4 days in beautiful Port A!

Great location, great house with lots of space. Beautiful kitchen! Great place overall.
Jim H. August 11, 2013
Great location just 100 yards from the beach with a private boardwalk. Very open and spacious second floor. Would come stay again in the future.
Jill G. August 7, 2013
The house is beautiful, clean and sits in a wonderful location steps away from the boardwalk, with a view from the second floor that is phenominal. The house was perfect! We paid $3,600 for a 3-night stay specifically for the benefit of having an elevator for our wheelchair bound father, and the trip was for him in his last days. Upon arrival, I was told that the elevator may or may not work, and if it didn't, we could call and they would see what they could do about it. I believe I had to make make a big stink about it to get some immediate assistance. The management company owner found a key and went to the house to see if the elevator was operational. The elevator needed 2 keys. We had to use the one key, then run down or up the stairs to use the one key on the other end. The stovetop kept locking up and the disposal was an enigma. The management company did not ensure that there was a house manual and just wrote it off as someone must have taken it. The worst part was checkout. There is no customer service or hospitality with the staff. It seemed that the people checking out were a nuisence. No one asked any guest about their stay or experience. This place may dispatch maintenance and maid services well, but don't expect them to be happy to see you even if you are shelling out $1,200 per night. However, I would stay in this house again and again. It was more than worth it.

This vacation home rental was everything we hoped it would be. The home is very modern, completely stocked with everything you would need except food and is a very short walk across the boardwalk to the beach! There is also a pool on site if you want to avoid the sand for the day. The home is a "smart house" and is very modern with every convenience you could possibly want. We had four families stay here and we had ample room for everyone. The pictures are a very, accurate representation of the entire house. We were extremely pleased and would definitely stay here again if we needed a house this size! We did the entire check-in and out by phone and had no issues with the agency responsible for renting the property. Everything went very smoothly!
