The condo itself was great but because of the recent rains there was a problem with a lot of standing water on the property toward the dunes. Mosquitos were in heaven. Maintenence had not yet figured out a good solution on how to drain the water.

When we first arrived, the sink was clogged, so we had maintenance go to fix it. Then the tub was clogged up so they had to get a professional plumber, which at least they got fixed in a couple of hours. What I did not like for anything was having to clean up even after paying a nice cleaning fee. It was very old and the tub had a nice crack on it. I think it needs to be remodeled and put some beach decorations and not faces on the wall.

PROS: 1- Great view, 2- great location, 3- clean, 4- relatively comfortable, 5- the one maintenance request we filed was handled in a timely manner, 6- nice new ceiling fans in all rooms

CONS: 1- Cluttered with too much furniture and decor (we had to move things around to have places to put our stuff, as well as move several fragiles out of reach of our kids) 2- Being old and eclectic wouldn't bother us if ANYTHING had been updated recently besides the ceiling fans 3- There were several things that warranted a service request (running toilet, tub not draining, microwave issues), but honestly we just accepted that the place is falling apart and didn't mess with it 4- Understanding that the community is rebuilding, we checked in with mgmt twice before arrival to make sure they were all clear. No one mentioned that most of the shared facilities were being renovated.

Overall, we had an amazing time on our trip. We've just come to expect more of rentals at this price point. Will keep this property bookmarked in hopes of updates, but will not be returning unless that happens.

In general in Port A, remember to stop at HEB in Corpus Christi on your way in. As islands go, groceries are limited and expensive at the Family Center. For restaurants, get to Irie's delicious!

We had a fantastic time in our condo! Great, easy access to the beach, beautiful pool and awesome balcony.
Anonymous August 16, 2018
The location of the condo and boardwalk to the beach was perfect. We enjoyed the pool. We liked the layout of the condo and the view from balcony was awesome. The condo could use some updating. We enjoyed our stay,

We went in f9rst weekend in February. We felt it was a quiet and very safe location. Yes, there was construction around due to the Hurricane rebuilding process, but I felt we were helping the city get back together. Major restaurants were open and more on the way soon. This condo, I really liked, it was spacious and the view was GREAT. Plenty of towels and the Master bed was comfortable. The second bed is a pull out sofa and my friend said it was comfortable and it had its own bathroom as well.

This place was so great! We have to admit yearly we stay at another property but due to hurricane damage they are closed. This place was a wonderful discovery! We have never stayed anywhere with a view like that. It had everything we needed and more. We have two little ones so we moved a lot of the beutiful decorative glass to a closet, but that was no big deal. We already looked up dates for later this year and next year when we come again. One of the things we forgot to mention upon check out was only one of the keys worked on the door. We were always together so it didn’t make a big difference for us.

It was a great condo. Love the decorations! The Bed was comfy. The view is to die for!
The only draw back was there are 2 flights of stairs and I had my 80 yr old mom with us. She made it though.
Carlos C. October 14, 2014
Great, fast and easy. Had a wonderful time before the bad weather. Rental was clean and roomy with plenty of space. Parking was a little crowded with two seperate vehicles, but manigibal. All in all we had a wonderful time and do expect to go back to the beachhead condos!!
Anonymous May 2, 2018
View was lovely, we enjoyed it very much. However, what we did not realize from the listing is that this condo was on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. (I should have done more research before booking.) Ordinarily this would not be an issue, but my husband is terminally ill so going up the stairs one time was very difficult. So, we mostly stayed in the room so that he did not have to traverse the stairs.
Anonymous April 25, 2018
The view was by far the best part of this rental. Unfortunately the condo its self wasn't in the best shape. Roaches were in the kit CV hen and the bathrooms as well as a huge crack in one of the windows. The location and convenience of the boardwalk to the beach and views from the balcony make up for the bad stuff.
Anonymous May 21, 2015
The best thing about 307B is the view and the kitchen is well equipped. However the furniture leaves much to be desired, especially the twin beds and the sofa in the living area. They were very uncomfortable. We believe the condo cannot sleep 6 people. We also had problems locking and unlocking the door.

We had a blast
Anonymous July 1, 2016
I've been to many condos at Beachhead, and this one is by far the one in worst condition. Granted, the view is nice, but that doesn't compensate for old kitchen appliances, dirty carpet (carpet! in a beach condo!) and overall dated accommodations.
Port-A Escapes also failed to communicate the requirement to remove the trash from the condo before leaving. During check out I was warned that I was going to be charged $50 if I failed to do so, forcing me to go back to the condo. The lady wasn't very professional since she didn't recognize her mistake in not communicating the requirement (first time in >8 yrs staying at Beachhead). Maybe the last time I stay here.

We stayed at Beachhead #307 "Starlight Siesta 307BH." The condo was clean and very colorful for a cheerful experience. It had everything we needed, a PRIVATE view of the beach and boardwalk, a nice TV w/ BlueRay, pots/pans/soap/shampoo.... Our door lock was a bit stuck and the maintenance crew was out prompty to oil it. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.
Anonymous August 3, 2016
We enjoyed our stay in Port Aransas and over-all I'd describe our quarters as suitable. Definitely not flashy or over the top. The Beach Head property itself could use some sprucing up, i.e. landscape, etc. as it is an old complex. The Star Light Siesta, although very cutely decorated in an eccentric sort of way needs a total make-over. Next time I'd definitely pick one of the renovated condos. The view WAS great, except that the railing is right in the line of sight. Definitely nothing about the condo ruined our visit, but, next time I might try a different unit!
Rene I. May 30, 2018
Loved, loved this condo! Very amazing gulf views, artsy ethnic eclectic decor, clean, very family and I really enjoyed it! Great for families or romantic getaways! (Stairs could be a challenge for the elderly)Pool and boardwalk were well maintained. All needs met by management quickly and courteously. I can’t wait to come back again! Now my favorite condo!

Not even worth the Groupon rate - Beachhead Unit #307
We have stayed in many of the condos at Beachhead and all have been great, except this one. We recently stayed in Unit #307. If all you care about is the view, you'll be happy. Here is a list of disappointments:
The unit hasn't been updated in about 2 decades, and is not well-maintained. The wallpaper is peeling everywhere. One of the bath tubs did not drain. You can't turn off the bathroom fan and it's very noisy. The blinds on the windows won't stay up. The coffee pot is broken - it overflowed out of the basket no matter how little coffee grounds we used.
The sitting room doubles as a "bedroom" but with an accordion door, so there's no privacy. The "twin" beds are about 2/3 the width of a standard twin. The fan in that room has one speed - fast - and it's wobbly.
The microwave is ancient and the kitchen is under-stocked. The only baking pan was rusted out.
There is only one teeny tiny dresser per bedroom.
Very uncomfortable living room seating.
The place is cramped with terrible décor and knickknacks everywhere.
Having said that, the Beachhead property itself is GREAT. It's right on the coast with a short and beautiful boardwalk to the beach. They keep it very well-maintained, close to the beach, there's a great playground for kids, volleyball court, and beautiful pool. It's always been the best place we stay when we visit every year. We won't stay in unit #307 again.
Anonymous August 3, 2015
We had a great time with family and on the beach. That being said, our rental unit REALLY needs an update. Everything from the floors, walls and appliances. Yes, it was clean but the walls of the shower were buckling and could come down at any moment, there was rust on the outside of the fridge, the floor was very uneven. The view is amazing!
Anonymous September 19, 2014
Great view, nice place. It really only has 1 bedroom, it has a large rolling door that separates the large living rooms area, and have bed that are set up like couches. My kids were to small to sleep in that room alone, so we all had to sleep in the bedroom.
Jamie C. May 23, 2018
This property does NOT have two bedrooms. It has one bedroom and a pull out sofa in a common area with a fold out door. We had 6 people and each person got ONE towel and only 2 sets of sheets. We had no TV because the property management company scheduled a cable company to come on OUR VACATION- they didn't. The kids could not swim in the pool because someone felt the pool had to be shocked on a Friday evening (?) when guests were arriving- poor judgement. Property management was slow to respond to our requests but their after hours person was pleasant. We will never come back here. Don't believe the videos of 307- its cheesy, small and only one bedroom. No trash bags were provided but delivered the next day by a maintenance person. The only thing nice about this place is the view. Nothing else.

the view was fantastic and the condo nice and clean. we enjoyed out stay. only problem was the wifi is very worked sporadically, so if you need to use it, dont count on it..

Our stay at Beachhead condos was very good. The locations was awesome, being right on the beach, or just a boardwalk away. Property was clean and neat, however older,...unit was nice and fit 6 conformably for a few days. We had a great time and would return

was a great time ....great views....couldn't ask for a better spot on the beach, boardwalk made travel to and from the beach super easy and the peace of mind knowing my wife and kids were safe and having fun at the pool while I went on a fishing trip was awesome to say the least....cant wait to visit again....would love the same room in may ....see yall soon !
Karen N. October 19, 2016
Layout and location of the property were great. I would probably have picked a different unit had I known the one I selected was on the top floor. Two hip surgeries in the past year make navigating stairs difficult. The twin beds were very uncomfortable and need to be replaced. The sheets were rough and pilled from long use. They were awful. The towels were great. The place was over decorated in the extreme. But everything was clean and the kitchen was well equipped.

We contacted Port A Escapes and asked for advice about booking the best unobstructed view and the best orientation to a full moon on a particular night overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Boy Howdy, did Harry deliver! It was the perfect setting. Also--we loved the artistic, zany, eclectic decor of the unit! This place is not decorated in dime store beach decor--the owner has filled it with finds from far-flung travels. WE LOVED IT! And, by the way, the full moon was almost close enough to reach out and touch! It was MAGIC!

We had an amazing experience from the booking to checking out. My family and I have been searching for the perfect condo. We have stayed a numerous ones at Port A and we have found the perfect on in Starlight Siesta 307BH. The staff with Porta A escapes stayed in touch via email. The day of check in they even called to advise the unit was available early and we could check in when we pleased. Now that is service. The room was clean and had the most perfect view of the ocean. My wife asked that we bookmark this location as she wants this to be listed as the favorite spot to return to in Port A. Thank you to Port A Escapes for making our weekend PERFECT.

We always enjoy our stay at the Beachhead Condo's. The view from the room was one of the best in the resort. The only difficulty we experienced was the kitchen sink began to back up and drain slowly. Other than that it was excellent.
Anonymous May 15, 2012
Stayed for 2 nights in the Starlight Siesta unit was clean did have to wash a few things before we used them. First time I opened the drawer with the silverware just about had all of it fall on my foot because the drawer was broken. Balcony door did not lock. But unit has a great view air conditioner works great. It could use new shower heads they were cheap and leaked all over the tub. Unit does need some updating but I would stay there again.

Port Aransas Escapes does great job with customer service, info, etc.
Only 2 downsides to this condo.. When we 1st got to condo, bathrooms were pretty filthy :(. Hair in sink , tubs, floor. Was bad enough that I scrubbed both bathrooms early the next day myself. Not what I was planning to do:(
Next thing.. While view is great from ( very long but narrow) balcony... We could not see anything if sitting in the chairs provided by owners!! Had to stand up to see view. They need to really replace chairs with deck high or bar top high chairs. One of my favorite things to do in early am is to SIT with coffee on balcony and enjoy view. Couldn't do that. Just my suggestion to make condo 5 star!:)

We stayed four nights at the Beachhead condos. Great view of the gulf from our balcony in #307. Condo was tastefully decorated in a beach theme. The condo was very clean. This place is showing its age but appeared well maintained. Pool was clean. Wireless signal was weak so never were able get on the net. Chain broke on the toilet the first but we got used to it. Never received any clean towels during our stay and trash was allowed to pile up on the ground at the bottom of the stairs. Quiet time was 10pm but our fellow vacationers ran up and down the stairs all night. Some of these things are to be expected with a vacation rental and some are not.

We had a great time. The room we stayed was good had a great view of the beach. We hope to seeyou again next year.

This is the second time my family has stayed at these condos. We come on Father's day weekend with a group of friends and their families and have a blast. The property is very family friendly, close to the beach with a nice board walk, outdoor grills, and a pool. Couldn't ask for more!

We had a great time during our weekend stay at the beach. The location of our condo was perfect - walk to the beach, walk/short drive to restaurants in town, nice pool to relax in with a view of the beach, great view of the water from our balcony - it was a really great stay, and for a good price, too. We were a group of six adults and had plenty of room. My husband and I stayed on the futon couches in the living room as we are early risers and were up before everyone else, and we were both pleased with how comfortable the couches were! We slept well! The kitchen is fully stocked, too - complete with a coffee grinder for fresh ground coffee. Can't recommend this place enough. We loved all the funky artwork/sculptures in the condo - great conversation pieces while dining and playing games. There was also a nice TV with DVD player - we felt right at home.

Internet did not work, period. Left two phone messages with front desk for help - never heard a word from mgmt. It wasn't clear who was in charge, the front desk, the reservations company, or the Internet company. Also was not told to pick up key from another location - that would have been helpful info. That said, I do like the place and enjoyed the other aspects of my stay.

Being close to the beach was our priority, and in that regard, this rental hit the nail on the head. The boardwalk was an easy walk even with the kids. We could hear the waves from our porch each evening. The condo itself was 2-3 stars. It wasn't anything spectacular, but wasn't dirty either. There were 2 "twin" beds and a king in the master. I'm not sure where anyone else would have slept, bc I doubt anyone would have a nice sleep on the futon. All in all, being one of the cheaper rates per night, I think it was an adequate find.
