clean and comfortable. Easy boardwalk walk to the beach.Quite location yet close to restaurants.
Anonymous June 30, 2018
Overall, we enjoyed our stay but we're disappointed in the price we paid in relation to what we received. The fridge ans freezer were warm the first night so we had to load all of our newly purchased groceries into our coolers. Maintenance did arrive the next morning but through the remainder of our stay the fridge never quite stayed very cold and our freezer co tinued to drip into the fridge. The showers never quite drained very well and when we attempted to use the washer on the last day after a fishing trip it just hummed without ever filling up with water. We had to go out nd buy a blender as the one provided was broken and leaking. Out of all of these things, we still had a good time but feel the price was outrageous with all the little issues we had. I like Port A and this was a good location on the beach, but we would not stay here again if given the choice.

We had a great time and appreciated the updating that was done in our unit.

Condo was very disappointing
BRYAN F. July 2, 2018
First of all, this place is not the RITZ CARLTON, however... it is well maintained and a very nice and comfortable room at a great price and only a short walk over boardwalk onto the beach. The room itself has cold air conditioning which is a very nice welcome coming back from a day on the beach. The bed's are comfortable, likewise the furniture. Nice filtered view of ocean from the deck. For middle of the summer, there weren't alot of guests... and the ones that were there were quiet and respectful. Water pressure in the shower blows you away! Very large swimming pool. Covered parking. We will certainly stay at this place again on a future beach vacay... I encourage you to do the same.

Wanted to move but, it was the deep sea fishing competition. The unit's carpeting was so filthy we were afraid to take our shoes off. We had to buy spray bleach because the air conditioning vents were black and it looked like mold. Bleach worked on the vents and the horrible smell. The unit was clean as far as the bed linens, bathrooms and kitchen but the furniture and carpeting were so dirty and worn. We covered the furniture with extra sheets and towels just so we sit down. NEVER stay there! So sad, great location.

Really enjoyed everything about our condo, we stayed in Janel's Haven 504. The kitchen was amazing, could tell it was recently remodeled, furniture was comfortable, beds were very comfortable. The only bad thing about the condo itself were the bathrooms. They need some upgrading, as there were cracked tiles and the showers were just very outdated. Other than that, everything was great, location was great.

The decor of the condo makes it feel very cozy. Fully equipped kitchen has everything you might need. The stackable washer n dryer was the deal breaker for me. It seem too good to be true...and it was! The Central AC did not work the average temp was 76 n it would not get cooler you didn't even feel cold air from the vents! Thank goodness it was not 100 degrees or hotter. There was a leak under the sink in the kitchen which was patched w a peice of duck tape. And the futon bunk beds in room 2 were super old! We went to lay down the Fulton n it complete broke! There was also a moldy old mattress under the queen bed in room 2 that looks horrific! Why was it still there and not discarded. For the price I paid to stay the weekend I gotta say I was disappointed. I would not be returning back to #504. So sad because it's super cute just needs a little TLC.

We were three adults and 2 kids in a two bedroom apt. It was an overall good experience for the price. We could have used more space . The kitchen had everything we could need ( scarce on microwaveable plates). It was nice to have a washer and dryer. Being on the second floor was nice to load and unload but somewhat noisy due to the floor above us.
Management was amazing! Definetelly 5stars.
The master bed was leaning towards the headboard and the left ( it had some bricks under to support it.
The view was amazing! Big balcony, plenty of chairs.
Location was very good.
The playground and swimming pool were also nice.
We should have chosen something bigger for our family.

Stayed at the Beachhead many times over the last 40 years. We have never stayed at 504BH. Apartment needs updating. A/C struggled to keep cool.
Anonymous July 14, 2017
We loved how close we were to the beach and this unit was one of the closest, with a view of the water just above the dunes (2nd floor unit). It was also nice to have covered parking right near the unit. The owner has made this a nice unit with contemporary decor and nice touches like great, fluffy towels and pillows and fully stocked kitchen. The only drawback is the condos are old and showing their age and the kitchen and the fridge smelled strongly of fish. Some cosmetic repairs are needed to make it feel a little nicer (needs paint in master bedroom, fix drywall damage, etc). We didn't utilize the pool or other features, but everything seemed maintained. Overall our stay was a good one.

A beautiful beach vacation experience. California the beaches are very stringent when it comes to family fun. Most beaches do not allow beverages, food nor smoking or pets on their beaches. Port Aransas felt so liberating. Very nice people, the water was so warm & inviting. Our rental was cozy and absolutely adorable. Staying two days was not long enough
Anonymous June 25, 2017
Our stay at Beach Head Condominiums was fantastic! The grounds we emaculate, the condo was fully stocked with everything we needed. The condo itself was warm, inviting, and comfortable. We loved being able to easily walk to the beach, easily wash off at the property edge, and then enjoy the quite atmosphere. We will be back next year for sure and hope longer this same condo!
Monty W. August 2, 2014
The room was dingy, chair in living room broken, a/c would freeze up under 75 degrees. Seemed dirty, carpet stained, beds uncomfortable. Kitchen seemed recently remodeled. Very outdated and old.
Anonymous March 6, 2015
We love the location just off the beach. This is our second year in this location. We have visited Port A six of the past eight years. The on site manager has been very responsive to our needs. We appreciate that the owner in the past couple of years redid the kitchen. We are hoping that the rest of the unit gets an update. There are areas that need to be addressed: doors, kitchen floor, painted areas, mattresses. The unit was not clean this year. My husband and I come with the expectation that our unit will be clean and we will maintain it to that level. This year it was not. The carpet was filthy, there was dust and a dirty layer on the top of shelves, and windows had not been cleaned. This set of condos are unique. I would hope that they would be kept in better condition and attractive to those of us that desire to come in the winter and rent for a month or two.

Everything was great!

This condo has a great location and a wonderful view of the gulf but the A/C is pretty bad. I followed the instructions to not turn the unit down too low but it never really cooled off and was very humid in the unit.
Anonymous August 16, 2014
Overall, the room was most satisfactory, but we had problems with the air-conditioning unit freezing up.
Rosa Y. July 16, 2014
We had a great time! the condo was beautiful and the distance from the beach was great!!

Totally recomended
Kelly M. September 3, 2014
Great location, not too far from everything. Condo was very clean, people were very friendly...I loved having a code to get in and not keep up with a key. Kitchen well equipped and beds were comfy! You can walk right down to the beach and from this balcony you can see the water a little but definitely hear the relaxing waves coming in. Would definitely come back! thank you very much for a fantastic stay!
Mary Ann B. August 3, 2015
Loved the keyless entry! Kitchen is fabulous. Rest of rooms require updating - doors are sticky and hard to open and shut. Great location! Lovely view! Walking to the beach is the best.
Anonymous September 16, 2015
It was wonderful because the location is great! The room however had so much wrong with it, NO upkeep in years in my opinion. Lots of pics for you to decide.
Roy H. August 8, 2015
We had a wonderful time. We liked the keyless entry and the pool. The only thing we didn't like was the infestation of roaches. We haven't lived with these critters and it creeped us all out.
Anonymous September 3, 2015
A nice kept and decorated unit. Plenty of kitchen items and the such. I would hope that they could improve the quality of reception for the wireless internet. Also, Have the entire unit fumigated to get rid of the roaches... not horrible, just a little irritating... again, a nice unit with a little room to improve...
Melissa G. August 2, 2015
My 4 friends and I all enjoyed out 4 night stay. They and myself were all so impressed with how tidy and up to date the rental was. It was very convenient with its beach access, although it could of had a better path to the board walk. I would definitely stay here again and will be recommending to others!
Sandra H. July 24, 2015
It was a great vacation place, except for the fact that it was not really clean when we arrived: popcorn, cheezits, cookie on the floor and crumbs on the chair pads. Also, there were roaches...they got into our sealed loaf of bread!
Kay B. October 29, 2014
We had a lovely weekend at Beach Head. We traveled with another family who had an adjacent condo rental. LOVED that we could room next door to each other.
Anonymous March 5, 2013
Stayed for month of February and enjoyed the condo. Carpet was very dirty as were the windows but otherwise very clean and very well stocked. Really enjoyed having the washer and dryer in the suite. Would have booked again for next year, except PortAescapes booked it out from under us without checking with us
Bob V. October 24, 2015
Our annual family weekend at Port A was just great. Nice unit, great view of gulf from balcony. Only complaint: box spring in master bedroom seemed to be broken, but we slept fine.
Anonymous October 24, 2012
had a great time
Barbera S. November 26, 2012
This was an amazing vacation! The property was beautiful and very well maintained! The management was exceptional! In fact, my husband was so happy that he wants to move there! Thank you everyone from PortA escapes!
Sandy S W. December 3, 2014
We had a wonderful time in Port Aransas. We shared our time there with various family members throughout the month. It was was clean and a wonderful location. The only complaint I might have was the internet signal wasn't very good, but I'm not sure that was a bad thing. It was nice to disconnect and reconnect with family. The condo was well equipped and very comfortable, a great home away from home.
Anonymous November 26, 2012
We have stayed in the same building before but this was our first experience in this unit. I would not book this unit again. You learn from experience. I'm just glad we were there for a short stay. This unit was dirty (dust everywhere) and the dishwasher did not work. There are rugs all over the place that serve no purpose other than providing an obstacle for us to trip over. The furniture layout in the living room makes it difficult for the entire family to relax in the evening and watch TV together. Overall, we won't book this unit again but will probably stay in our former unit (we will just make sure to go to Port A when our other unit is available).

The off beach location was great and not too far from the historic part of the city. The kitchen was newly redone and very nice. I appreciated the condition of cookware, dishes and small appliances. The kitchen was well stocked and I did not need some of the items I had brought from home. The condo linens were great, new and fresh. The décor of the condo had a beach feel to it. The condor needs now some updating. It feels very closed in with drapes and furniture that cover the fantastic windows and view. It needs an updating of the rooms to get rid of the tired and used look. Management of the condo property were great to work with.
Mary W. July 8, 2013
Good time!
Anonymous June 6, 2013
Was a wonderful stay.....calm and relaxing. Will stay in this unit again also very clean.
Only concern I had was that there was an ant problem in the playground and BBQ areas.
lori W. June 14, 2013
We had one small problem with a broken coffee maker. I called the office and it was replaced in an hour (wow). We had so much fun on the beach we didn't even use the pool. We can't wait to go back. Everything was great!

We have rented condos in Port A many, many times and even at Beachhead, but not there recently. We get to the condo (after an hour's wait to cross on the ferry)only to find out we have to go to another location to pick up the "key". We get there (road closed d/t a car wreck so had to walk!) and I ask why we weren't told about the key situation. I was rudely told if I would read all the papers emailed to me I would know that! When I disputed receiving any lease agreement in an email I was, again rudely, argued with and shown the agreement. Never any apologies and no professionalism. We were given a code for our door. When we get back to the condo the code won't work! Called to on-site person who told us that type of code "hadn't been used in years. Don't know why they gave you that one" Hmmm--vindictiveness on the management company's part??? Due to the rudeness and poor customer service of the management company we will never stay in any of their properties again. We would stay at Beachhead if this company wasn't involved with the rental.
Dawn G. March 26, 2013
This condo had everything we could want or need! The location was prefect! The condo was very clean and fully stocked with all the comforts of home!
The management was very nice and very helpful.
We had a blast and we would stay again.
Jennifer H. July 13, 2013
The place was clean and comfy, and the walk to the beach only took a couple of minutes. We would definitely stay there again.
Anonymous October 30, 2013
We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed staying in 504B. It was clean, nicely decorated, the kitchen was exceptional. The only thing that was needed was space for our food. We definitely would stay there again.
Johnathan R. March 16, 2014
Our stay at Janels/Port A Escapes was the best I've ever experienced. Staff was wonderful. Condo was the cleanest place I've ever stayed. Location was right by the beach and close to down town. Loved every minute of it. Felt like home :)
Diki R. December 11, 2013
Nice place to get away for the weekend. Great view of the beach with easy access to shops in Port Aransas.
Anonymous January 3, 2014
This is the second time I've stayed with this company and I still love it! It's right on the beach, and perfect for a weekend getaway! Would stay here again!
Danny S. October 12, 2013
We vacation at Port Aransas 3-4 times a year. This was our second stay at Beach Head Condos (Units 407 & 504). We were overall satisfied with the location and expectations for this property given it's age, wear, and tear. Would consider staying there again except for the poor wi-fi reception on site. Reliable internet service is no longer a luxury, but an expectation, and is a determining factor in our property selection for future visits to Port A.
