Very disappointed..
A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014
My family and I stayed at this property and where very disappointed. The property description states its been completely renovated but it didn't look like it. Inside is very old and dated. It's supposed to have 4 bedrooms but the two bedrooms downstairs where very awkward. You have to walk through one of the rooms to get to the last bedroom. And the other room downstairs didn't even have a door which made it very difficult since we have kids. During our stay we also came across 2 roaches. I've rented from many rentals in port a and this is the first time that we where very disappointed. The management was very rude and not accommodating. This will be my last time ever renting from this agency.

A guest from Cedar Park, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014
The location of the property was great. We were not happy with the sleeping arrangements. The bathrooms with the exception of the master bath was about the size of a cruse ships bathroom. There were roaches in the house and roach droppings on two of the beds. The bedroom on the first level with bunk beds was extremely small and very hot (it was unusable).

Dirty ESCAPE 20
Catalina M. from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
Stayed on 8/30 to 09/02/13: Home was very dirty, seriously wondered about the linen on beds, bathrooms were dirty, small and worn out (found old razor in shower, trash on floor), I had to sweep, mop, clean bathrooms prior to my family being able to stay at the home (this was to be a mini vacation for me, not a house cleaner). Bunk beds were very unstable, no one could use the top bed due to instability. Unable to use garage due to there being a lot of stuff in there. The place is pricey and I guess what we paid for was the view (expensive view). Very disappointed with the home itself. View of home on internet can be very deceiving.

Get Lost in Lost Colony!
Mark B. from Driftwood, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 13 days in July, 2013
Love the location - easy access to both Port Aransas and Corpus Christi (about halfway between the two) and way away from the crowded portion of the beach for either.Unit 20 had just been remodeled as of our stay in August 2013. We had as many as 9 people staying in 4 different sleeping areas of the house and could have had another 5 and still been very comfortable.Nice view of surf from both the main level and upper deck. Easy walk to beach - 2 minutes from unit to sand.

Property was totally misrepresented!
A guest from New Braunfels, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013
Upon placing a deposit on the property for our family vacation, we were told how fabulous the property was because it was under a $100,000 renovation. What a joke! It was a dump. Closets missing doors, water stains everywhere, pillows placed in filthy closets, no a/c in a bedroom downstairs, bunk beds with ceiling fans placed directly overhead top bunks, kitchen cabinets with no doors, foul smell in downstairs bathroom and bath, etc. I could go on until I run out of space. I took pictures and demanded a partial refund, which was denied. No cooperation from management company.

Great location, needs some TLC
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012
We love coming to Lost Colony for a recharge, and since we travel with a dog this is simply perfect. We like 20LC for its view and its proximity to the beach. The house - kept spotlessly clean! - nevertheless needs attention to many basics: outlets don't work, showers are sagging, windows don't open, the decks may need some attention. But of course the location trumps the condition, and we look forward to coming back.

Amazing Gulf View, Beautiful Sunsets, Steps Away from the Beach
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012
Our over all experience at this property was amazing !! We looked for weeks to find the perfect place for our parents wedding anniversary. Patrick from the property management team was exceptionally helpful. Patrick made sure this house would accommodate all our needs and made sure the house was perfectly suituable for my parents 60th wedding anniversary weekend.When we arrived, the house was clean, spacious and oh what a view!!! The house was just steps away from the beach and the community pool was just a hop skip and a jump from the beach house. Very close.The beach house was quaint, cute and very comfortable. My parents were thrilled that they could sit on the top floor balcony and enjoy their morning coffee while watching the sunrise each morning.I'm not kidding. The gulf view from both balconies are gorgeous!! My family and I plan on returning next year and staying at this particular property. I highly recommend this property to anyone especially families. Thanks again Patrick and property management team. Your help and hospitality made all the difference. My parents had a wonderful and special wedding anniversary weekend. Us San Antonians will be back for sure!!

Sep. 14-16 Weekend Getaway
Matt J. from Gatesville, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012
The location and view was great. Loved being right next to the beach. I was very disappointed in the house. My contract stated that i would have a 2 car garage. This was not true. The house appeared to have had a garage in the past and was turned into a room. Also, the kitchen was terrible. the floors were 2 different types of linoleum and much of it was peeled up showing underlying ply wood. The refrigerator was rusted on the outside. When i entered the kitchen there was chunks of dried mud through out. I did not appreciate the look nor did i appreciate having to clean the kitchen floor up on arrival. For what i paid the home should have been in better shape.

Fantastic view and responsive property management people
Kathy R. from Houston, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012
Arrived to overpowering fumes when we unlocked the beach house. Took a couple of hours to get rid of. Notified the office. A water leak started on main floor and notified the office. By the next day it had to measure at least 6X6 feet. Air conditioning pan had overflowed and was fixed but we were still left with a soaked floor right in front of stairs to upper level. The deck had a beautiful view. However the railing attached to the house was not stable and was not safe. The outside railing for the stairs leading down to grass had missing and unsafe railing. Grandchildren were not able to use. This beach house would not pass inspection and am afraid if the soaked rug is not properly dried out they may have a mold problem. Very disappointed, especially for the amount of money I paid for a 3 night stay. I gave the office this same list of complaints when I turned in the key. No one offered any type of a refund which I feel I was entitled to.

My MDW Experience
A guest from SA, TX. does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012
The only thing(s) that made this rental good in any was the proximity to the beach and the quantity of bathrooms. Other than that the place needs some major up grading and pest control. The carpet is questionable, the couch smelled of what at times seemed like urine, the whole unit reaked of a mildew odor (thank God for scented candles), the dishwasher was broken with dirty dishes left inside upon our arrival and when we made coffee the first morning it tasted like we were sucking on a penny (we had to purchase a new one but at least we were reimbursed). There were other things that were minor but very apparent i.e. squeeky fan, shaky bunk bed, freezer door that wouldn't shut completely etc etc. Let's just say that this expeience has motivated me to start my rental search MUCH earlier and with hopes of grabbing one of the more updated units.

Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011
A group of girlfriends and I headed to Port A for the weekend and stayed at a house in Lost Colony via Port A Escapes. We had a wonderful time and the house and property were perfect for us. The pool was clean and close by, and the boardwalk to the beach was convenient. This was great with all the stuff we had to lug around. We've stayed at Port Royal in the past, but after a bad experience last summer and an awesome experience with Port A Escapes, we will be at Lost Colony from now on when we come back!

Anthony C. from Kyle, TX. does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011
This place is a dump and that?s putting it politely. I understand it?s an older place so some wear and tear along w/ some corrosion is normal. However if I had to guess this place has been neglected since it was built 20 ? 30 years ago. In the case where repairs and maintenance have been attempted it was completed with what appears to be bubble gum and duct tape. It should be a crime to charge this much for a rental in this condition. We paid over $500 a night for three nights and feel like we were just raped (prison style). It really surprised me that this unit got such good reviews. The only conclusion I can come to is that the previous renters where either drunk or high during their stay.

We have been going to Port A 30+ years so we have stayed at many of the condos. We love Lost Colony because of its size and location. This particular condo is great if you have a large party and you're not particular about the decor. The kitchen and carpet could use a little TLC! All the men in my party thought it was great!!

Needs TLC; paid for location
Christian H. from Dallas, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010
Overall, we didn't mind the 1980's furniture so much, but the overall condition of the property's structure needed attention. There was quite a bit of interior dry wall rot and water damaged door frames and rusted steel doors that needed to repaired. Be best to replace doors with new fiber glass doors to ward of future element damage. Appears that someone had attempted to fix these issues with putty filler and a new coat of paint; didn't even use the correct dry wall tape and spackle. Sorry, needed to be addressed. It wouldn't hurt to invest a couple hundred dollars in new kitchen laminate counter tops and floor tile to help spruce up the place. I would consider donating a little bit $ towards the effort if it will help. I did large roaches each day that we were there and ended up leaving a day early. Sorry, I wanted to report better things, but had to be honest. I would consider staying again if these issues were addressed and corrected.

Summer Vacation with Friends
A guest from Canyon Lake, Texas does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010
The view of Gulf of Mexico was fabulous including the sunrises. If the property was not so close to the beach and had such a great view of the ocean, we would have asked for another property to stay at. The property is advertised as 3 bedroom and the 3rd bedroom is a converted garage that smells of creosote and an a/c unit that is very noisy-uninhabitable. The upstairs A/C handling unit leaked water onto floor that leads from dining area to kitchen-it was always wet and dangerous since we slipped on the kitchen floor. The leasing agent was helpful in searching other 3 bedrooms and then supplied us with an inflatable bed and extra towels for the floor. She also gave us a discount which helped since we couldn't find a place with a comparable view.

Lost Colony 20 - Not suitable for rental pool
A guest from Austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010
We've stayed at Lost Colony many times over the years but this was our first time in LC 20. Certainly we've come to expect some relatively minor issues with the properties, but nothing on the scale of what greeted us the weekend of July 30, 2010.This property should be removed from the rental pool for the following reasons:1) The downstairs bedroom is not habitable: the smell of creosote was very strong, not only downstairs but throughout the entire unit. This problem has been noted before and the owner has not resolved it. It's not clear that it can be addressed short of gutting the downstairs entirely. 2) The AC unit needs major work - throughout our stay it leaked in the kitchen and soaked a portion of the carpet in the livingroom. The management company sent a technician out to to work on the unit and he attempted a patch job that did not resolve the problem. It's possible that long-term water damage - possibly mold - is present in the wood, carpet and surrounding sheetrock. 3) the unit was inadequately supplied and maintained: no coffee filters, trash can liners, dirty silverware and dishes, doors that are difficult to open and close due to settling of the structure, just to mention a few issues. In fairness to the management company - Port A Escapes - they very understanding and adjusted the rental rate to reflect that this was basically a two bedroom unit. Nonetheless, they were aware of some of the issues in advance of our stay and should require the owner to bring this property up to a reasonable standard before agreeing to rent it in the future.

Disappointing Property in Great Location
A guest from austin, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010
Property claimed to be 3 bedrooms but 3rd bedroom was an addition in the garage which could only be reached by going down a step into unfinished garage and up another step into bathroom and then bedroom. The setup was very poor and I would never have rented the house if I had known how it was layed out. Then to top it off it stunk. Evidently the smell was creosote but the bedroom reeked of it and we were never able to use that bedroom. The first night the smell permeated the whole house but that did get better. The property manager was very helpful and offered to try to find something else but by then we had already unpacked and didn't feel like packing up and hauling everything down 2-3 flights of steps and didn't figure she would be able to find another 3 bedroom property anyway. They did bring us 2 air matresses but that still left one family with out a private bedroom. The living room carpet was full of long dog hair and the place is just generally run down. The pool is okay but needs to be retiled and it has not one unbrella or tree for shade. The location is great-great view and very short walk to the beach.

Property was as advertised. Great ocean view. Close to beach. Pool okay. Everything worked. Bottom floor bedroom arrangement was a little strange and smell of creosote from posts was pretty strong, but worked okay for my kids. Slept 9 pretty easy. Would stay here again.

One of the bedrooms was a garage convert which wouldn't have been a problem except for the overwhelming smell of bug bomb and mo

The adults in our party ended up swapping turns sleeping on the floor which really upset me, considering out expensive the nightly cost at this unit is. Also, much of the furniture was broken or ripped. My husband sat on one of the dining room chairs and fell right through because it had a chair cushion that wasn't bolted on. It was just resting on top and looked perfectly safe to sit on. We were lucky he didn't get hurt. We set the chair off to the side and told the management about it, so hopefully they'll remove the chair until it's fixed.We all had a good time but it was unanimous that this beachhouse is definitely not worth the money spent.

I really enjoyed staying in this house,this is the second time my family and i have stayed here.however this time there were a few downsides. the downstairs bedroom had a foul odor and the beds smelled like mildew or something,the window a/c was really noisy and made it hard to sleep at night,there were also roaches in the bathroom.We were disappointed that both icemakers were broken and didnt dispense ice the whole time.and the patio furniture was broken. Other than that we were pleased with the house and will consider it for our family trip for next year!

The gated entry wasn't operating for three days and many of the outside lights on the property were broken.The inside of the property was very musty. On a positive note, the master bed was very comfortable!

I spoke with staff many times and was never told that there maybe roaches because we were close to sand dunes. I have stayed at many different places in port a and in rockport and NEVER have I seen this problem. I told them we had 2 little ones that would be going with us and that is just gross we were even unpacking some stuff we brought back and found a roach inside the bag GROSS needless to say we just threw everything away!!!!! I will not EVER stay here again 20% off or not I would have rather paid full price and been criter free!!!!! Def not worth the money.... But the Lorna is very nice:)

House was very clean upon our arrival. The grounds are also very nicely kept. Great view and beach access by way of the boardwalk. It would be nice if the unit had a bbq grill. The one that was there was in very poor condition and looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in sometime. This would be a great asset, afterall, who doesn't like to grill hamburgers and hotdogs at the beach? Overall we had a very pleasant stay. This was our second stay at Lost Colony and would definetly recommend the property to family and friends.

The bottom converted garage bedroom is not finished and not in very condition for the rental price. While the location is very good, the place is over priced for the condition of the condo.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The beach access was great. The kitchen was nice and big were a few people could work in there and not get in each others way. Kitchen was well stocked and everything looked like it was taken care of. The couch in the main living area probably needs to be replaced and the shower on the main floor needed to be fixed. Other then those two things, the house was great. We would stay there again.

called in and you took care of immediately, thank you. The blue comfort on the day bed is dirty and stained, we did not use it. And you need to tell the renters where the third bedroom is we did not find it until the third day but no one would stay there because of the smell in the garage area. All in all, we would stay here again.

Our thoughts

Obviously the location on the beach is great. Unfortunately the condition of 20LC is not. We immediately had problems with the air conditioner in the garage bedroom. The staff at PortA Escapes were very good. They started working on the problem immediately and comped us one night when the problem took 2 days to resolve. The front door had shifted and we could not unlock it. This problem was fixed after we notified management. We paid a premium price for the week but the property was not in good shape. Problems we encountered should have been fixed before we entered the front door. A big problem was that the third bedroom was in a strange garage conversion off the front entry. It was isolated, awkward to get to and stunk of mothballs. The property is advertised as having two garages. It has no garages available. The shower off the living area was disgustingly dirty. Again, it was cleaned after I reported it but it should have been cleaned before we arrived. The house was surface clean but the woodwork, baseboards, corners, sheets, and dishes were dirty. The front door is filthy and not with salt and sand. I had to clean off the table on the deck. The plumbing was bad in the upstairs hall bath and the garage bedroom. I had no water except a dribble and had to use the sink off the kitchen. The carpet on the stairs was so slick from wear everyone kept slipping. Stickers were everywhere and we were constantly pulling them out of our feet. The property could be very nice but it needs a major overhaul. It needs repair and cleaning, at the very least. The kitchen really needs a garbage disposal. If renters have to dispose of their garbage, there should be either pickup service or a dumpsters closer than the highway. The pool has crumbling plaster and tile. It was all just a little shabby but we paid a premium price. We did like that it was pet friendly but the bucket at the pet relief area was not emptied the week we were there.
