We had a wonderful relaxing week. The location was great we were close to the beach. There were plenty of clean linens the AC was cold and the water pressure was fabulous. Everything you needed for a great week at the beach.

Great location near town and the beach. Nice little bungalow that would be good for a family with grandparents.

I enjoyed my stay. Our cable was not working, but they sent someone to fix it the very next morning. Three of the windows in this rental need locks fixed and we addressed that with management.

Had a lot of mosquito’s but nothing you guys could do about that. Also would have been nice to have doors on the bedrooms. Other than that would definitely stay there again next year.

We always have a great time when we visit Port Arkansas. We also love renting properties from Life in Paradise. They are so accommodating. We have always extremely happy with the houses we rent. This house was very sparse on amenities. There were only five plates although the house sleeps six. There was no wine opener. The pots and pans were very small for cooking for six and we cook all our meals. There was however plenty of paper goods. I may just be spoiled from some of the other properties that were stocked as well as my own kitchen. Some of our party were upset about no wifi. The house is in a great location for beach access but along with that comes a lot of traffic and noise and people staying on the properties behind you use the side and backyard as there access to get there. We had to place something in fridge to catch water that was leaking on the food. I would recommend this property to a friend though but with a few disclosures. With a few fixes this could be a five star property. We did love how easily we could get to the beach and the huge front porch,wish there was a table out there to eat our meals.

Pros:Walking distance to the beach, Well equipped with amenities and supplies, Comfy beds with plenty of sheets, family friendly.
Cons: Could use a hair dryer and small vacuum, backyard was not mowed upon arrival, small bugs seen inside kitchen, Open trash pit outside property attracts mosquitoes.

My name is Kari M. I am the wife of Roland M., and we were the 2nd couple who shared the rental beach house with Carol M. When we arrived at the beach house, we were expecting the yard to be in need of mowing, as I personally talked with the property mgt a few hours prior to our arrival and was advised the yard was scheduled to be mowed the next morning. We didn't expect, however, to find the inside of the house so unclean. The floors had not been swept or vacuumed. The bathrooms were poorly cleaned. The kitchen was poorly stocked. We questioned whether or not the sheets had been changed. So unfortunately, Carol and I spent the beginning of our stay cleaning house which made both of us pretty unhappy. We spent money out of pocket to purchase a few items for the kitchen, so we could complete the meals we had planned for the week and had already bought groceries for before we arrived on the island. I killed cockroaches on a daily basis in both our private bathroom and the kitchen. We also saw the larger water roaches every night as we spent time on the patio, which is harder to control in that area, I understand, but was still an exaggerated annoyance because of the roach problem inside. The bedroom and bathroom doors are a joke. They offer no privacy as you can see right through them. The showers aren't big enough to take a comfortable shower. Shower in a box is more like it, and I'm only 5'3". The yard did not get mowed until the end of our stay. The grass height was mid calf and the yard was infested with bugs, gnats, and stickers. We dealt with getting insect bites every time we walked through the yard and were forced to wear shoes to avoid the stickers. My husband and I travel quite often and are accustomed to renting personal property for our stays. This is by far the worst accommodations we have even had and do not plan to ever return, especially since there are so many nice rental properties on the island and even on the same street.

The house was clean and a good size. We did have a issue with no extra trash bags (should have been 3 according to prop manager) and a small amount of dish soap left in bottle. They were supposed to bring us extra (we called twice) but never received it. There is NO WIFI which would of been nice at night for the kids. There was only a medium size skillet so a large one would should be added. The shower doors were very difficult to open/close due to how they were installed. Pet friendly was a plus but the backyard had no fence and we had people walking through our yard/drive way multiple times during the day/night. The TV in the living room needs to be updated if you like to watch TV while vacationing. The deck was a nice touch, we sat outside multiple nights. Location is fantastic! walking distance to beach.

The house was identical to the way it was described in the Home Away reviews. It had two baths, two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living area with two small couches/twin beds. The air conditioner was nice and cold and the water was hot! The location to the beach was great, and we did not experience people walking through the yard on their way to the beach as others had.

Having said all that, it was odd, as others described, because even though the house is advertised as sleeping 6 people, there were only 4 plates and the silverware and cooking utensils were almost non-existent. Not to mention that they didn't seem particularly clean. So, we just mostly used paper goods and covered things with foil when we had to cook. There were no usable knives and as I said earlier, the cooking utensils were sparse and somewhat rusty looking. I was glad that we had brought our own!

When we tried to barbecue hamburgers on the charcoal grill, the grate on top where the meat sits was so old and rusty that we almost lost our burgers to the fire!

The bathrooms were odd. Each one had a shower, but there were no shelves in the showers to keep your toiletries on and the doors were very hard to open and close. But the water was hot and there was plenty of it.

There were also plenty of nice new towels and wash cloths, and it was nice to have the washing machine and dryer to keep those clean, and to wash up our things from the beach.

One of the reviewers mentioned the refrigerator. It kept our things nice and cold, but there was a mysterious drip from the freezer onto everything inside the refrigerator. There didn't seem to be any obvious reason for the water leaking onto our stuff.

The property manager was very nice and easy to deal with and came out on the same day and replaced a light bulb for us.

The house is old, but serviceable. It was clean, other than some weird gunk in the bathroom showers. I would recommend it if your gr

Perfect for coming and going, hanging out on the deck, sleeping and eating

We have rented this house 2 yrs in a row. It's not far from the beach,food or anything really. Great house for the price. Can't wait til next summer to do it again!
Gloria P. August 2, 2015
We really liked this quaint little house. We definitely will come back again...HOWEVER...Please put table lamps on all of the living room tables and in the 's hard to read a book from the ceiling light!

Location was fine, size of rental was fine. Unfortunately for the money spent for the weeks stay, we expected to have the place better equipped. There were 3 sets of towels for 4 people for 7 days. Some basic cookware not available, no baking sheets, Teflon pots and pans were scratched. We had to spend more money on basic kitchen items. There was only one entrance/exit, the windows in one room were sealed shut, in other rooms, locks were broken or windows sealed shut. Great backyard but no seating or easy access. The fire alarm was dismantled. One of the beds was very uncomfortable, for it to be the newer bed of the two.
Maria P. November 16, 2015
The kitchen is in bad need of decent pots and pans. Those that are there are all scratched up, and there are not enough. There is no dining table--just uncomfortable stools at a bar that divides the kitchen from the living area. The lighting is poor for reading--ceiling fans with lights--too high too allow for close work. In short, adequate for a weekend, if the renters want to eat out a lot, but not conducive to a month's stay. I did enjoy spending time on the deck, but even that needs some upgrades--backs of cushions on chairs were covered with mold. They look like they've never been cleaned.

Overall loved the beach house... The kitchen needs updating, more lounging chairs on the front deck would've been nice.... We had several people staying and only 3 chairs were on the deck.... The beds had no sheets on them... All minor complaints but overall we had a great time! The staff at Life in Paradise is ALWAYS AMAZING!
Bob L. July 22, 2015
We stayed at the Beach House last weekend for our first family vacation in many years and couldn't be more pleased with our experience.
Life in Paradise folks were great to work with and we're already talking about staying there again next year.
TV was small (we weren't there to watch TV), no Wifi and if planning to use the grill, bring charcoal.

Coffee maker dead first morning glad I travel with a small 4 cupper. Manager had a new one to us with in an hour. Great access to beach.
Nice to have washer and drier. Outdoor shower handy when returning fro beach. Dish tv reception ify at best and no premium channels (no golf channel) tv in master could not find a signal. As with all rental homes bring your own skillet an kitchen knifes also all seasonings. Nothing up dated couches and beds old and a little hard. House was clean and nicely decorated. No place to set soap ect.. in showers. With that said the price was right and we came to spend time at the beach with the Grand kids.

We had a wonderful time here. Walking distance to the beach. Great patio. Relaxing, comfortable and quiet inside. No complaints at all. We would stay here again.
Cindy W. September 21, 2015
Another beautiful time in Port A. We love the beach house cuz it's close to the beach and restaurants. It's a nice little place to stay that allows us to bring our 4-legged kids. So beautiful, love our Texas beach in Port A!

We always enjoy our stay at the BEACH HOUSE! We have been staying there for the past 9 years every time we go on vacation down at Port Aransas. Life In Paradise always goes above and beyond to accommodate our requests. Can't wait until next summer!!
Barry & Cher R. August 26, 2015
Great House, We brought our Golf Cart with us, had a great riding on the Beach and to Restaurants, we've been using Life in Paradise for about 15 years, never had a problem.
Daniel J. August 9, 2016
Tried not to be in the house to much, found quite a few bugs and the house wasn't clean.
Russell D. July 5, 2015
Mattresses are not comfortable. There are no lamps for reading. Not dusted well but otherwise clean. Very convenient to beach. Nice to have a pet-friendly house.
Scottie R. March 18, 2017
We were very satisfied with the house. Great location made us feel like we were at home.

The house was sparkling clean and comfortably arranged/ The kitchen was great to work in.

First off the picture you see is a well manicured lawn with trimmed palm trees. Grass was above ankle high and the palms on the tree were hanging so low you cant see the road. Second ROACHES!!! Kitchen, bathroom and living room area, infested with little to mid size roaches. Third privacy, there is no fence in the back yard so people staying at the bungalows behind the beach house use the backyard to the front as a shortcut to get to the beach. Stayed 3 days for 2015 Thanksgiving and will not stay there again anytime soon. One last thing owner should spend some money on vacation rental and keep up with the times i.e WIFI AND SO ON.........

Absolutely loved it and wanna rent this one in the future!
Lynette S. July 22, 2014
we have rented this property several times and of course through the years you can see the wear. it is a great place to stay but i would like to see the shower worked on and the shower hanger put back up. the tile in the kitchen is come up i see. it needs a new couch/something more comfortable and new beds.
Christy D. June 15, 2015
Would definitely book this property again! Clean and walking distance to beach. Only recommendation to owner would be to add wifi.
ALBERT T. September 4, 2014
