Great Location, But Has Mold & is Worn Down
Randi T. from Austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2018
When we first opened the door to the unit, a blast of stinky (what we thought was) mildew hit us squarely in the face. We moved past that, just thinking that most places on the beach must smell like this, even though I've stayed in multiple condos on the island without this problem. The kitchen sink faucet was working, but was not secured to the sink so it moved every time you tried to turn the water on. The curtain rod in one of the bedrooms was pulled out of the wall on one side. The dresser drawers had debris in them. The balcony had six working chairs, the seventh was broken but no one had removed it. The HOA arrived promptly at 8am on Saturday morning and started drilling & hammering on the rain gutters on our unit. We called after hours to confirm where overflow parking was (the onsite office is still closed after Harvey) and the operator had no idea, though the day staff was very professional & friendly. You can see black mold making its way out from behind the fresh ceiling paint in one of the bedrooms – all seven of us got sick -- sinus issues, swollen & sore throats, headaches. The four positives about this unit are the view of the beach, the close proximity to the boardwalk, the large pool & the cute beach décor. But I think they rushed the repairs after Harvey & people need to know there is black mold and they will get sick if they stay here. For $260 per night in the off season (the total including the cleaning fee & Homeaway's charge) I expected something in better shape. The unit is small – not quite big enough to comfortably fit 7 people, even though it sleeps 8.. I would go four people max if you’re going to stay here.

2 Star
Linda H. from Austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2018
While I applaud efforts toward Harvey recovery, 505 property was not aligned with high per night fee. I called the office and requested maintenance on a running toilet, a bathtub toggle switch that didn't toggle from shower to bath, only leaking water from both, a TV that didn't work--no satellite connection?, a broken slat on the deck causing danger for young kids and, thank goodness my daughter fixed the dishwasher. Nobody followed up with me, and there was no record in the office when I turned in my key. Time has been spent on the grounds, pool and boardwalk, so I am requesting a night's refund due to lack of follow up and condition of the condo.

Marissa R. from Odessa, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2018
Out stay was great! The beach house was roomy and in a great location we loved having our own board walk to the beach and the view was amazing! The only bad thing was that the pool wasn?t open and we were never notified that it would be closed during our stay and we saw a few bugs in the house during our stay but overall it was a pretty good trip!!

The condo was completely furnished with all neccessesties for the kitchen bath which was great. Was very clean ... outside area was neat considering the other properties around us were still not clean up from Harvey but this location was fairly clean up outside..... Check in time would be so much better at 2:00 PM the 4PM is so late for the money you pay........

We loved this condo! Our only complaint was we wish the living area had more seating so weCould sit comfortably! Loved the kitchen table - we played cards one evening! There were 32 stairs to climb which doesn't seem like a bunch until you've done it 50x. Rent a cart to ride around town in - so much fun!!! Overall loved this place!

Great Location but definitely dated and needed repairs
A guest from Plano, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2017
The location was great. It was a short walk across the boardwalk to the beach. The pool was amazing and very relaxing after a long day at the beach. The condo itself was very dated and very worn down. It smelled like mildew and mold, the kitchen was in awful condition. The fridge stopped working twice during our 3 nights and the management kept using the excuse, "well it is the weekend, so I can't get anyone there to look at it". Seriously? You rent the condos out mainly on the weekends and you can't get anyone out to look at it. Very frustrating! The second time it happened, we asked to use a different condos fridge till we left. They allowed us to use the next door condo. But still very frustrating!

Beachhead 505, the BEST place to hang out with family!
Laura G. from Austin, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2016
This was our third time to stay at the Beachhead resort, and every time just gets better. There is a full kitchen, if you want to save money by cooking "at home" some meals (we have, but didn't this trip). There is a playground on sand, great for little kids when you're not up to a full beach set-up. There is a pool, and it was warm enough in November that we could have swum. The property is a half mile to two miles from pretty much everything, and we spent the whole week darting to and fro in a beach buggy. Great views and really quiet when you're ready for down time, too.

port a getaway
Wendy P. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015
18 years going to port a and staying in various places. unit was spacious, but no trash pick up, no maid service at all, kind of had a dated,musty feeling/smell. we called ahead to let them know that we could not pick up key during office hours. they said no problem, arrangements were made to have key placed in lock box at management office. but when we got there and opened box, not keys. had to call emergency line, and a grumpy, "I am already in my pajamas" (it was 8:00)lady answered and then she came to the office and gave us keys. beach access if good, and if you don't mind doing housework, trash duty on your vacation, then this is an ok spot. we can not longer afford the outrageous price tag for port royal, so as an alternative, this is doable.

Family introduction to Texas coast
Robert A. from Folsom, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014
I had to take my California born wife and daughter to Port Aransas to experience classic Texas coastal beauty. It had been 35 years since my last visit and was thrilled to see it was the same old Port A but with modern improvements. The condo 505BH at Beachhead condos was just what the Dr ordered. Right on the beach and laid out perfectly with classic beach theme, you could tell the owners take great pride in this unit! The folks at Port A Escapes were very friendly and gave us great advice on local rest scene. We rented carts for 2 days and never used our car after that, what a fun time cruising up and down the beach. Don't miss out on renting one of these fun vehicles. Can't wait to go back and get another much needed recharge to the old batteries.

Cozy Getaway
Andrea A. from Dallas, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014
My boyfriend, sisters, brother and his girlfriend rented the condo for a short weekend at the beach. The condo was clean and the grounds well kept. With both bathrooms only accessible through the bedrooms, I would recommend this particular condo for no more than 4 adults. It was also a bit awkward with one room housing two twin beds, but the setup would have been ideal for a family.

Mini Vacation
Jonathan K. from Forth Worth, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013
The reason I marked down for amenities is because the TV in the master bedroom did not work at all. When we called to have the maintenance guy check on it they took all day to come. Then told us yep it's broken we will have to get the owners to get a new one. So we didn't have one for the whole stay. Also, in the guest bedroom they did not have cable. The only options was to watch movies on a DVD. Which would have been okay had we known but did not bring any movies b/c we thought we would have cable.

Family Reunion Weekend visit
Mary Liz B. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013
We rented 3 different condos for our family reunion. We decided on these three based upon photos and speaking to the representative. However, we would have liked to have known that the room we wanted the best waterfront view actually had the worst. And we especially needed to know that all rooms were on the third floor. One of our guests was elderly, and several were very young children, so the extra flight of stairs made trips to and from the room quite difficult. Desk staff upon arrival did their job, but did seem a bit frazzled and not very happy or friendly.

HaHamain thing read all the papers your given at check in great info on unit. yes its two flights of stairs, but we found different ways to cut down on stairs. I know its a big deal when stairs are not your thing. consider it a mini vacation workout. we did. enjoy the moments. and the laughter of little boys enjoying the adventure.

My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the property overall, including location etc. The only complaint we and all other tenants we spoke with was the lack of internet service. In my opinion this can only harm your business as in this day of needing instant information access, word does get around about the poor service. THIS IS A MOST NECESSARY REQUIREMENT THAT NEEDS UPDATING ASAP

Another great stay in Port A!
Laura H. from Austin, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012
We love this condo! The location within the complex, the location on the island, and especially the very thoughtful and fun decor... Obviously a lot of love has gone into preparing this home-away-from-home for visitors. We were very comfortable, we made breakfast and one meal a day in the fully-equipped kitchen, and there was plenty of room to spread out when we needed some down time from each other, and then when we wanted to hang out together, there were cards and televisions with DVD players. It was a great stay! We'll be back, but only when this specific condo is available. :)

The only downside was that it was located on the 3rd floor (which they don't mention when you book but the view was great and the place was adorable. Super close to beach & pool.

Refreshed and Re-Newed Friendships
Vickey J. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012
My best friend flew in from Cali after not seeing her for 5 years. Myself, Sister and friend drove from Austin and found the Condos very easily. To our delight the room was perfect. 1 queen and 2 double beds, a great view of the gulf from the balcony, and since we brought lots of food, we were very happy the kitchen was well stocked. We had a fantastic time. We will book again soon.

Enjoyed it!
A guest from Sugarland, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012
The location was perfect, and the condo was in very good condition - not immaculate, but clean. Enjoyed our trip immensely. The view from our deck was slightly obstructed, but we could see the Gulf from our location while sitting on the right side of the deck. I loved the covered parking; really cut down on the additional salt spray on the windows overnight when the winds would pick up. It would really be helpful to put an icemaker or at least ice trays in the freezer. Additional towels would be helpful as well - two towels per person for the whole week is really chintzy. Other than a few minor issues like those mentioned, the experience was very positive. We will most likely be back!

Vista del Mar 505BH
John B. from Celina, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012
We absolutely loved our stay here. It was spotless when we arrived. A short walk to the beach that we walked to every day. No one complained about uncomfortable beds (4 teenage boys)!! There is a journal for all guests to write in and it turns out the owners are from our part of North Texas, and, a big Football rival of ours. We definately plan on doing this at least every year, and requesting this same room. GO CELINA BOBCATS!!!

Overall we had a nice stay. However there are several things that would have made it better. Ice trays or ice, a king size bed, clean chairs on the balcony(seagull poop all over them!) and a pantry to put our food in.

Stay was great. The only thing was the view from the bocony, online it showed the view of the playground and vollyball court, but when I got there it was a view of the buildings next door. But thats the only thing other than that everything was great. Will go back for another vist.

Very cute and comfortable condo
Julie C. from Del Valle, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011
The unit BH505 was very clean and comfortable during our stay. It was nice to have everything we needed with regard to the kitchen. It was well equipped for preparing meals.. The beds were ok, the furnishings made the place feel warm and inviting. Nice view of the beach and dunes from the right side of the balcony on this 3rd floor unit. I've stayed in 508 and though the view is better, it was not as updated as 505. Would like to try a 2nd floor unit next time, the above balcony would provide protection form direct sun. We love Beachhead and would reccomend to friends. Port A Escapes and the staff at Beachhead are very accomodating and friendly.

The condo was in a great location and everyone was very helpful and nice. It was perfect for kids with the playground and a short walk to the beach. The condo was clean, just a little outdated. We would have liked something a little more up to date for the price.

WE MADE A BIG MISTAKE, Patrick fixed it quick.
Mike S. from Austin, TX. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011
We arrived at 5:30, staff phoned to check our progress and stayed late to check us in. We got to the condo carrying our stuff in, when the wind blew the door closed, both keys locked inside. A quick call through the after hours answering service and Patrick saved the day. He made a return trip to the office immediately, and gave us another key, smiling cheerfully the whole time. A great guy from Boston, great management, great vacation. Beach was very nice, kids loved it too. See you next summer.

Also, I the 11am check out is just tooo early especially for Easter Sunday. I would think that during the off-season, that people should be able to stay until really late on Sunday (about 4pm). If you required a two-night stay and allowed for a late Sunday check out, your properties would be booked

Enjoyed our stay. Great weekend with the family. The kids loved the beach and the men loved the fishing.Note to Port A Escapes: We also rented Unit 508BH in Clark Freeby's name so I didn't get a survey on it. We wouldn't rate it very well on general condition and cleanliness, although other ratings would be the same.

Stayed for 2 days in April, 2010
The condo was overpriced. The decor was cute, but needs alot of updating. I was expecting more for the money. The extra fees were extensive. It was stressful to think that if we didn't get the garbage out just right or lose a key that it would rack up to such expensive costs on top of housekeeping and damage fees already charged. The beach and the weather were both awesome, though.
