It was NOT what we expected it to be in many ways. I've already sent in my views about Beachhead Condos and Portaescapes. PLEASE REMOVE ME FROM ANY ADDITIONAL EMAIL LISTS.

Love the Beachhead. Been vacationing there for years. The only unpleasant problem is the SLOWWWWW wifi. Management needs to upgrade it. Also the pool had green water. Fortunately we swim in the gulf, not the pool, but it needs to be better maintained.

There was a certain smell the moment you walked in to this rental....we had to stop by the store to grab cleaner(fabuloso) and a candle. The back door was broke so the kids could not open or shut the door. The beds were comfy and the view was great. All in all it was ok.....I will try somewhere else next time to have something to compare it to.

We had a great experience at Anchors Away! The condo was clean, nicely appointed, and was located ideally close to the beach with a beautiful view from the balcony. We can't wait to go back!

If you wonder (as i did) whether you should come to Port A, the answer is YES. They are still recovering, but the condo was great and the beach was beautiful. This condo has an incredible view of the Gulf and is well maintained.

We booked this for two nights during low season and during a week day so very quiet. Check in with Port A , giving a key , parked under the building. walked up two flights of stairs and opened into a place that was just bugged bombed ! horrible smell and had head-aces the whole time. Place need painting. Sheet very scratchy! The view is not that great, need to be up one more floor.

Our family found the facility well maintained and in an ideal location. Anchors Away 503BH was clean and in good condition. Rooms were spacious, and the very wide veranda provided a stunning view of each day's sunrise. The Port A app made checking in and out a breeze.

Overall it was great, the only issue I would bring up is wi-fi reliability, it did not seem consistent throughout the property.

Nice quiet place. Really enjoyed the balcony and the boardwalk to the beach. The condo was clean and comfortable. I will definitely try to stay there again.

Location of condo unit was great - closest to the beach and had a great view from deck. . Condo nicely furnished, beds were comfortable, everything was clean. People at Port A Escapes were very helpful . Coffeemaker was broken.

Thought the couch was a sofa bed; it is not. MBR could use some back out drapes, there are dusk to dawn lights right outside. (or bring a sleep mask) Traffic was heavy delaying our arrival to 5:03 pm. So had to drive across the hiway to get the keys. Thought they were going to wait a few minutes for us but nope. Other than that it was absolutely Heaven and we can't wait to come back. It was quiet, relaxing, everything we needed. bring an aux cable it you want to stream video or listen to music. There is a blender tho it's not mentioned. bring your own "church key" if you need to open cans for pouring. Would highly recommend. Will be back!

We enjoyed our stay at the Beachhead Condos... the condo was roomy, very clean and especially convenient.
Christine W. June 13, 2017
we were facing the beach from the patio and it was a beautiful view.

We have stayed in Beachhead before and chose this unit based on the location. The unit was ok. The beds and furniture were comfortable. The entire unit could use some tlc. Moisture damage in bathrooms (mold in 2nd bath), worn out cabinets, rusty outside of refrigerator and dust bunnies hanging from the ceiling around the vent made the stay a little disappointing. The unit needs dishes and glasses. There were 3 glasses and 1 plastic tumbler. We had 5 guests booked. Many of the dishes are chipped. We had to purchase plastic bowls and cups.
You can't beat the view and the location. We only wish this particular unit had a little more. We would stay at Beachhead again, but perhaps another unit.

Port A Escapes was very accommodating.
Becky D. October 14, 2014
We had a wonderful time with some friends! It was a perfect location, beach access was a 3 min walk by a boardwalk. The condo was comfy and clean. We will definitely be going back!
Anonymous March 21, 2015
We had a wonderful stay. We stayed in another unit in Beachhead a few years ago and liked this unit much better. It has lots of nice updates (master shower, kitchen). The only thing we didn't like was the slow wireless/internet speed.
Overall this is a great place to stay--private boardwalk with short walk to the beach and a great view. I already miss the sound of the waves!!
Darryl S. July 27, 2015
We stayed in the same condo three years ago and were a little disappointed this time around. We noticed roaches in the kitchen every day of our stay, the handle in the children's bathroom sink was broken so they had no cold water, the frame around the door in the master bedroom was broken, there was a sewer-like smell in the master bath throughout our stay, and some of the glasses were cracked and not useable. The water went out due to a broken line, and that was fixed within a couple of hours; however the outdoor shower was out the remainder of the day. Also, the furniture in the living room is quite more worn than I remember three years ago. I'm sure that is just general wear, but don't remember the recliner being so unstable before.
The condo has a great view and more chairs were added on the outside which was nice.
We hope that the maintenance issues will be resolved. We would like to return sometime in the future if improvements are made.

We really had a great time in Port A. What a terrific little town with friendly folks and expansive beaches. The bird watching was great. In terms of the condo itself, the porch was a total treat, the place was big enough for three and everything worked well. I do think it would be nice to just include the most basic condiments so that people don't have to buy a bunch of groceries they are forced to leave behind. Just some salt and some oil and same coffee filters would be a nice gesture. Also the customer service at the key pickup spot was a bit lacking. We couldn't find the place initially and getting any kind of directions over the phone turned out to be impossible. But other than that we really loved the place once we were in it.

We are a family of 5. 3 kids. We LOVED this condo. The location was perfect for nightlife and also the beach. This complex was very clean with all the amenities.
The condo was clean, with great appliances and furniture. I loved sitting on the back porch and seeing the ocean over the dunes. Will try and make it back for sure!

The unit was very clean upon arrival. We had a great stay. The unit was close to the boardwalk, pool, and playground. There are only a few negatives about our stay. The island had gotten a lot of rain prior to us arriving. The designated parking area for the unit was under water about 6-8 inches and the rental people were not helpful in trying to find a better area to park for our stay. No fault to the rental company or unit, but the playground was also well under water, so my 2 and 5 year old were not able to take advantage of that feature. In past we have stayed at condos/beach homes that had a washer and dryer and I really did miss that feature in this condo. The view was very nice and the unit was very quiet and private. The pool was an added bonus and we enjoyed it after a long day at the beach one day. We were the only ones there and enjoyed the view the pool had to offer as well.

We've stayed at beachhead condos a number of times and had a great experience every time. Only dislike is no pets policy.
Elizabeth F. December 15, 2015
we love it. and will come back had the best time ever.

We recently stayed at this property for Spring Break. As adult vacationers, it was important to us to have easy beach access, great relaxing views and full kitchen/bbq amenities. The rental is well maintained. There was four of us and we were comfortable. I would recommend this unit. The property managers, Port A Escapes for amazing to work with. Harry is now my personal "Escape Artist"!
Thanks all!

Stayed in unit 503 for over 24+ years! Loved the updates! Gorgeous and so appreciated.
Especially enjoyed the tall stools/table combo on the deck for eating lunch and drinking wine. The Beachhead is never a disappointment! Port A has so much to enjoy: UT Science Ctr;bird-watching trails/parks.Ship-watching;dolphin watching boat rides and so much more!

This rental was in a great location in town, had a wonderful balcony and plenty of indoor space being a two bedroom, two bath. It would have been helpful to have better signage from the road and also to have hand soap in the unit, even if it was a very small bar rather than two make-up remover toilettes.
Russell W. August 19, 2016
Stayed three nights at unit 503 at Beachhead. enjoyed the proximity to the beach and to town. Property was as expected. The unit we stayed in could use a little maintenance with some rust(expect some of course). Door to the balcony needs some repair and maintenance. Overall the unit was clean and met our needs.

We've stayed at Beachhead many times when visiting PortA, but the first time in this particular unit (love the convenience of Beachhead with their direct boardwalk access to the beach, hoses and outside shower for getting the sand off everything and boardwalks to everything like the pool and back to your units. This unit was very clean, no carpet. Faces the water in one of the front units and is on the same level as the pool (so you can take the bridge across the unit closest to the pool and straight through to this building -- very convenient). It is however NOT on the top floor, so you can hear footsteps of the people above you. This unit had everything we needed to cook all our meals there, although no storage containers for leftovers (we always bring our own). There's no disposal in the sink, but does have the dishwasher, microwave, electric stove. The layout of the unit worked great for our family of 4 -- 2 twins in the front bedroom with their own bathroom and the master in the back with our own bathroom. Cable and wifi worked great too.

Great location. A little small, bathrooms, kitchen.

I had a great experience and look forward to coming next year. Also have two friends who may come also. They will probably be in touch with you.

The condo furniture needs to be cleaned or replaced. The bed in master was comfortable and sheets were clean. Our stay started on a Thursday-Monday. By Saturday the roaches appeared ( I guess since food is not in condo at all times.). My husband read guest book and another guest had seen them and maintenance came out and sprayed. We did not call maintenance. When we checked out I told escapes the issue. The lady in office asked if I wanted to speak to manager it may be awhile she was in meeting. I said no but left my cell number and asked for a call. 2 weeks later still waiting. Cockroaches are unacceptable and are disgusting. When I arrived home I put everything on my back porch and went through it to make sure I didn't bring any home with me. Never again will I stay at Beach Head. Sad we've stayed there quite a few times.

The property was perfect size for our family of four. Close proximity to the beach and nice pool a short walk away. Beds were comfortable, kitchen okay (bring your own specialty utensils or cookware). Items to note: this is a second floor property; there is a door leading to outside in the kid's (2nd) bedroom - we just blocked with the dresser.
Christina R. July 9, 2012
The only thing that would have made this rental better is supplying towels we only had 4 towels in our room and were told that no daily clean towels would be provided, so the continued use of the washing machine was needed. It would be nice to have the towels supplied again like they were in the past.

We brought our grandchildren for a getaway and quality time. No television, no electronic games. We enjoyed swimming, walks on the beach at night,the pool, bbqing, and playing games. Everyone had a great time. Thank you.

Our children grew up coming to Beachhead in a family group of friends trip most summers. We sadly watched the property decline as we continued to return to Port Aransas with our children & grandchildren. Last year we were thrilled to see it was finally getting needed attention! Our condo was lovely, the space worked well, & location was great. Unfortunately, the refrigerator was not cooling adequately to keep food cold enough & some spoiled. We ended up having to keep ice in an ice chest for milk, cheese, & lunchmeat. WIFI never worked as advertized & staff kept trying to blame the very early brief rain we had everytime we called for assistance.

Location of this unit was great. Beautiful view of the ocean and easy walk to the beach. Unit was great and good size.

Anonymous December 10, 2012
Checked in on Sunday, left Friday. I liked the condo being on the end closest to the beach. It was furnished nice and the four of us had a great time just relaxing. December is a slow time of year so never had to wait at a restaurant for dinner. There were some restaurants closed and only open on weekends but we found plenty open during the week. Will come back again this time of year.

Beachhead 503 was the best! The remodeled kitchen and baths were beautiful! The high directors chairs on the porch provided the best view of the beach! The recliner was in a perfect spot by the window was so comfy! We are definitely requesting this room next time we visit!
Ken H. February 20, 2013
THe coffee pot did not work. Clled the office and the gentlemen I spoke to said it would be replaced. It never was. Also the WiFi didn't work. Between 3 smart phones and One Laptop none of use to hook up to the wifi.

The members of my staff that stayed in the condo were happy with its size, amenities etc.

This was our first visit to Port Aransas and we will definitely be back! Beachhead was a fantastic place to stay! The only complaints I have are that the wifi never worked for us, there are no TVs in the bedrooms, and that the carpet in the bedrooms is old and stained and needs to be replaced. We would def stay there again though!

Spent 6 weeks in Port A to escape the winter weather back home. Second year @ Beachhead Condos. Love the location. Unit was very comfortable, staff was responsive to our needs. We will be back.
Tamara S. March 19, 2013
I have chosen this same unit for two years in a row for its proximity to downtown while still being able to see the water after looking over the dunes. There's nothing fancy about this property, but it has everything you need. The dedicated parking spots are nice, too.
Edmund C. December 6, 2013
Originally had us staying in 502 but the room smelled of stale cigarette smoke. We were not happy. We got moved to room 503. The room was great and made our stay a happy one. The management was more than helpful in making our stay a comfortable. I can recommend Anchors Away - Clean - close to beach and shopping.
Aaron Y. August 27, 2013
We only went off of internet reviews and images of condos for rent, and were shocked to find out how great this place is once we checked in. Lovely exterior, great location, and amazingly new and clean interior. Further, we were the closest condo to the beach out of the whole complex and had an ocean view! Great place and will stay again.
