We enjoyed our stay here! The photos accurately reflect the accommodations, and the condo was spotlessly clean. The host was very responsive and checked in with us during our stay to make sure things were going well and provide restaurant recommendations. Very family-friendly place to stay - easy access to beach, three kid-friendly pools and the condo even has a pack-n-play and a little booster chair for little ones! The condo community is not the most updated (condo itself has been updated!), but the important parts (pools and community rec room with ping pong, games, puzzles, TV, etc.) are clean and well-maintained and the grounds are very well-maintained - we were constantly seeing groundskeepers, pool cleaners, housekeeping staff cleaning windows in main areas, etc. It's down at the end of the island, but we had no trouble at all (even in peak season) getting down to restaurants/main part of Port A - we took the highway there and beach access home - the kids loved joyriding on the beach! We also were able to get a beach permit for $5 to drive the car down there so we didn't have to haul all our beach gear. All in all, it was a GREAT place to stay and good value for the money - the kids have already asked if we can stay in the same place when we come back!
Host was extremely helpful and quick with communication. The property itself is an older condo however this unit was VERY clean which is a priority for me. The kitchen has been updated nicely and the bedroom and bath looked to be closer to their original state so don't expect new and high end. Like I said though the unit was clean, comfortable and affordable though with a great view so we were very happy. A++++
I stayed at the Condo for a couple days. I booked with a bit of a short notice, but Minerva was super responsive and helpful. It was a great place to rest and relax. The photos are quite accurate, but they don't do justice for the feeling of watching the sunrise as you're getting ready for the day. The condo's location is great for easy access to the whole island not just Port Aransas. I went post-season, so things were quite quiet on the island, but that's exactly what I was looking for. Overall, the Condo was great and Minerva was a great host! I would definitely stay again!
When we arrived at unit 205, we stood outside our door for about 10 mins because the lock code was not what was emailed to us. Upon entering the unit, I was immediately awe-struck with the view from the living room overlooking the crashing waves of the ocean, although the windows were quite dirty. The decor in the unit was creative, inviting and modern. The lights around the bathroom mirror kept the bedroom hot, there was no lock on the bedroom door, the master bed squeaked and is very bouncy, takes forever to get hot water throughout the unit, the sleeper couch was uncomfortable, tub fixtures were corroded, the unit floors were filthy under our feet and the unit was dusty. When I reached out to the owner to ask that the floors be swept and mopped, her response was "the floors get dirty from bringing in the beach sand"...we had just arrived, not even having gone to the beach yet. Even though they came back out to sweep and mop, the floors were still dirty, especially underneath the kitchen table and in the living room; I wish the unit had a broom and dust pan there for us to use. And for $1,271 for 3 nights, one would expect the unit to be supplied with paper towels, toilet paper and not have to strip the beds of the linens, do the dishes or wash the towels...this is why they pay the maid service, right? Some neat features are, if you have little ones, they supply the playpen sleeper, booster seat, toys, kids dishes and movies. The pool area was awesome! They had 3 pools; 4', 3', and (URL HIDDEN) was nice because my kids didn't have to wear floaties all the time, nor did I have to worry about them without the floaties on. Would have been nice to have gas grills at the pool versus having to buy coal, starter fluid and matches. But it was nice that they had a wash station for when coming off the beach, to get all the sand off us and our gear. I would definitely stay there again, being more prepared after having already stayed there once and knowing what to expect.
I was very surprised to hear the home was dirty. My family and I stayed there right before this guest's arrival so I know the condo was clean. Even though the guest did not mention anything about the cleanliness until the second day of the stay, I went ahead and paid for an extra cleaning fee to have the condo re-cleaned. I always get compliments on the cleanliness of my condo. I am new to Airbnb, however I have listings on other websites and my reviews speak for themselves.
