The property was very clean and nice. The location was close enough to town without being in the middle of town. Then beach was easily accessible. The rental was close to the pool also. Great place to stay.

Great.............. parking if the property was full could be interesting.

Great time as always. Will be back soon..

Great time!

We had a great time and the rental came with everything we needed! The only thing we didn't enjoy was the pool. A development next door had piles of sand and this was an especially windy weekend. We could not sit and enjoy the pool without eating sand. Luckily, we were there to be at the beach and the house was exactly what we needed!

The house was perfect for our stay. The location was close to beach but basically anywhere you stay in Port A you will need a Golf Car to commute with out all the mess in your own car. The house was really nice overall.

Great stay, property mgmt responded immediately when we had a slow draining shower and had it fix within a couple of hrs. The only complaint was the Wi-Fi. We tried 3 different connections and passwords and none worked. It was not that big of a deal but wanted to let you know so it could be fixed. Thanks for a great weekend.

We really enjoyed this condo. The management company is awesome to deal with!
Donny D. July 11, 2013
I enjoyed it. Great location, could have had an outdoor shower, overall great trip.
Megan L. July 11, 2013
We had a wonderful time. Me, my husband and 4 of our friends all stayed here. It was simple and had everything we needed. The other renters on the street were friendly too. The pool was perfect and little. This location was 5 min from the beach and coffee house. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. The price was reasonable and port a escapes made me feel comfortable and that we were being taken care of. Thank you Patrick for all of your help. Considering our previous rental cancelled on us 8 days before our trip because of a fire! We called and Patrick was able to help us find something that fit our budget and our needs and saved our trip!

The check-in & check-out process was seamless. The rental was all that we needed. It's very close to the beach, has it's own garage and charcoal grill, community swimming pool, stocked with dishes, and clean linens. I will say that only thing that bothered us was the roaches in the beginning. We found 2 in the beginning of our stay and then didn't see anymore after that thankfully. Other than that, I'd def stay here again.
Patricia M. August 4, 2013
The Blue Heron was immaculate when we arrived. Perfect location and very cozy. Will definitely refer friends and will be back for sure.
Erin H. June 24, 2013
This is the most beautiful condo I have ever rented in Port A, and I've been in quite a few. It is fully stocked so you don't have to pack kitchen items, iron, hair dryer, etc. There are even board games, DVDs and books to use during your stay. The pool was our favorite hangout when we wanted water sans sand. We've stayed two years in a row and will be back. Enjoy your stay!

This property is very well laid out for our family of 6. We enjoyed our vacation in this quiet complex of condos. The pool is a refreshing amenity to cool off after a day at the beach. Bring extra bathroom towels for your stay.
Doroteo L. May 28, 2014
We immediately felt at home upon unpacking and settling in. Our group included two families with 6 kids amongst us and the condo was more than accommodating for us all! I can't wait to book our next trip and stay here again!
Erin H. June 29, 2014
This condo is a fantastic home away from home. There are games, DVDs and wifi for your entertainment, laundry room, dishwasher and a fully stocked kitchen. A quick stop at the grocery store will keep you from having to eat out every meal on vacation--a must-have for a family trip. The kids' room is perfect-two twin beds and a tv that swivels. The master bedroom is huge and has a very relaxing feel. The view is of the pool, which is also fantastic. It's shaded by trees in the afternoon so you can have a cool swim before dinner. We have stayed here three years in a row and we love it!

Great location and residence, quite clean overall. Nice little pool 10 seconds away if you don't want to drive 2 minutes to the beach!

Two things keep it from a 5-Star rating, however.

First, the kitchen sink and the dishwasher smelled STRONGLY of fish. This, while a knock against, is a minor inconvenience.

Second, and most important, is that the smoke detectors went off during our last night (and we had two pre-schoolers sleeping). It wasn't the batteries either. They *fully* went off at 11pm, sporadically for around 10 minutes, then once again for 10-15 seconds at 3am. There was an obvious fault or something wrong with them. In all of the Port A Escapes paperwork, there is only one number listed at all, so we called it. No one picked up at 11pm, so after the alarm stopped, we prayed that they wouldn’t go off again in the night. They did at 3am. We called again and someone did pick-up. We were eventually connected to a woman with Port A who was not very encouraging or understanding and didn’t think she could get the maintenance guy that early, so her advice was to “whack it with a broom.” Not the most helpful or considerate customer service suggestion, and frankly we were quite angry. Also, the maintenance guy *never* showed up by the time we left at 11am. Thankfully, the front desk employees were much nicer and more accommodating; we were told we would be refunded for one night.

I would still recommend the location … but definitely ask about the smoke detectors.

Overall this unit was excellent!!! Very clean. Close to town. Close to the beach.
Mary M. April 22, 2015
We have been staying at the Blue Heron FH4 for the past few years for the winter and have booked it again for next winter. It is a great place to stay. We love it.
Young C. December 1, 2014
Had a great experience staying here. The condo was very well kept, spacious and was just minutes from everything. I come to Port A quite a bit and I have to say, this is probably one of the best places I have stayed at.
Dana W. July 21, 2015
Everything was great. We had a fully stocked kitchen, close to stores and the beach. The only thing that would make this a 5 star location is if it were on the beach.
Molly B. June 30, 2015
House was clean and comfortable but we cooked a lot and the cookware was dreadful. Teflon pans should be tossed and the microwave didn't work, Also the temperature was programmed to 80 and it kept flipping to that temperature and had to be readjusted constantly.
Maria E. June 22, 2015
This house was just perfect for our group of 6 plus one 4 1/2 year old! It was very clean, well equipped and plenty of sitting space. The hurricane shutters were AWESOME and provided for great sleep in the pitch dark! Beds were very comfortable and well dressed. Had plenty of linens, TV's in each room and the kitchen was superbly equipped with just about anything you need for a quick snack to a full meal. The only thing this house is missing is an outside sitting area for the evening breeze as the front porch is quite small, but overall the place is very highly recommended and the price is quite reasonable. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place!
Olivia U. May 19, 2015
My family had a great time! The rental was great. We loved the fact it was minutes from the beach and also very close to the golf cart rental shop.
Definitely will return again!
Avery C. August 11, 2015
Everything is as described. It's not perfect - toaster oven and toaster were broken, some cracked tiles, and the mattresses are really hard and uncomfortable. But, it's 1 minute drive to the beach and clean, and there's a small pool in the complex. I'd stay again, for sure.
Gerardo G. October 21, 2015
The experience was good. Pool was not a big as it seemed in pics. Being around other folks and not being able to hang out late was a bit of a bummer. Other than that was awesome. Would rather get a stand alone place next time.
Anonymous October 27, 2010
Pool could use some help.
Mgmt was unaware of TV problems.
Elizabeth H. August 17, 2011
This was a family vacation for us. We were very pleased with the Condo. Very nice and clean! We had five adults and two children, and were very comfortable. There were good provisions such as games and videos and a pool. One of my daughters who stayed
at a different condo said she would rent this condo next time! The only incident we had was my son had several items stolen from his car while parked in front of the garage. He did leave it unlocked for a while, still it was a disappointment. We would absolutely
recommend and come back.
Don & Becky R. March 6, 2011
This townhouse is ideally located on 11th street in Port A to provide access both the beach and downtown. I'll stay there again anytime I get the chance.
Scott H. August 10, 2010
There were 10 of us total but all of the kids were under 10. It was a great place to stay. The pool was a real asset when we were tired of the beach. It is centrally located so things are easy to get to. The people at Port A Escapes were easy to work with. We will stay there again if we can.
Chris B. June 2, 2011
I met up with family for a weekend visit to Port Aransas, and we all loved the house. It was exactly as advertised, and we did not experience one issue during our stay. I plan on visiting again, and will more than likely use the same property if it is available. Very enjoyable stay, and trust me, those words do not come easily from this guy.
JOSE S. October 4, 2011
The house is in very good condition, good location, a perfect place to rest.
katherine c. July 14, 2010
we would love to stay here was quaint and perfect for our family vacation.
Tripp H. November 3, 2011
The property was absolutely perfect. Very clean, organized, well stocked with all cooking necessities. Over all set up of interior was great. If I have any complaint, it is that the parking and drive thru capability with a boat is less than desirable. It just is not conducive for anyone with a boat. I enjoyed my stay thoroughly and I will be back.
Phyllis W. August 3, 2010
Totally enjoyed our stay. Accomodations were superior. Looking forward to renting at the beginning of Fall and next year for a week.
Don & Becky R. March 9, 2012
This was our 3rd or 4th stay @ The Blue Heron and, as usual, we greatly enjoyed the experience. It's hard to beat the Heron's combination of location, comfort & price.
Diane S. August 3, 2011
Great place to stay!!
Erin H. July 7, 2012
The condo is well kept and spacious. Everything you need to cook is provided. We were VERY happy with our stay and will definitely return.

We really enjoyed our stay at the blue heron. Extremely clean place. A/C worked great. Very quiet. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the pool was very dirty the first couple of days. After that, I think someone must have cleaned the pool. Overall, This is one if the nicest places we have stayed at in Port A since we have been going. We have been going for at least the past 20 years. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Jason F. June 26, 2012
Check was a breeze, house was clean and everything worked. Walked to the beach a few times. Best rental stay in the last 4 years going.
Alfred U. May 23, 2012
The condo was very modern, nice and clean...there were a few things that were not working but I made a list a handed them to the management company. The location was perfect (would have like to be just abit closer to the beach)very easy to get to and the whole time we were there it was very quiet. We would definitely go to this condo again!
kristen w. July 25, 2012
everything was great. place was really clean. pool was nice. with a golf cart, not even 3 min drive to beach. could have had more trash bags & paper goods stocked up...
Shanna D. August 15, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Heron and would definitely stay there again! It was a great location to get to the beach, shopping, etc.

Our only complaints were the cleanliness of the swimming pool and the floors in the the condo were not cleaned very well. My 10 month old was filthy after crawling on the kitchen floor. Other than that, we were very happy.
Veronica O. August 8, 2012
It was very clean and very roomy my kids and grankids enjoyed the pool we enjoyed it very much we are hoping to come again next year maybe with two condos for all my family thanks!
Frederick G. September 25, 2012
A great condo. So many amenities. Only a couple minutes from the beach. We loved it. We will be back and use the same company.
Anonymous November 4, 2012
Would recommend this condo for long or short term stay, very well furnished...everything needed is here! Port Escapes were excellent!!!
