    Mandy K recommends this vacation rental

    We love it here, however after staying here for almost five years now and seeing them not make the necessary updates needed to justify what they charge we will have to start looking at other options next year. Two years in a row we’ve had electrical fires, leaking windows when it rains, gaps in doors that are 1-2” big, doors that don’t open, etc... It’s everything we look for when coming to Port A in regards to size and outdoor area so hopefully they get to the updates they need.

    • Manager Responded on 11/20/2020

      Thank you for your continued trust in booking your vacation getaways with Port A Escapes. We have addressed some of these issues and are currently working with the home owner to address the others. We look forward to booking your next beach vacation in the near future.

    a guest from Dallas, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Summer Place is a great large house for big groups or multi-families. In an attempt to have a safe vacation in the age of Covid, it was important to us to have a large pool and outdoor area in case we weren’t able to leave often. We thoroughly enjoyed the huge pool and awesome palapa. The house is fantastically positioned close to town and the beach, so only a short golf cart ride away. The kitchen was also great for large groups with commercial sized oven/stove and double fridge. A few things to keep him mind: few of the TVs work, but we didn’t care (wouldn’t work for football season), take your own beach towels and possibly shower towels as they only provide 1 white hotel towel per guest, the dryers don’t really dry, so be mindful before you do a large load of laundry, some of the doors stick and have old fixtures that aren’t holding up in the salt air (we were not able to access the top deck from inside. Overall, a great vacation in a quirky old house that suited 12 of us perfectly.

    Billy C from Harwood, TX recommends this vacation rental

    The location was great...and being on the hill was really nice to add to privacy and the view.
    The placed was very roomy and easy to navigate.

    The only 2 main issues I have is NONE of the TVs worked. 29 remotes and no tv labeled for which remote belonged to which frustrating when just wanting a large group to settle down from playing in the wonderful pool all day after a wedding.
    Then my pet peeve...Broken tiles, wood flooring missing and worst 2 stairs that had wood flooring on them that had broken tongue and if you walked down/up barefoot it made you nearly fall when the piece gave way and the nosing had a sharp edge to poke the bottom of your foot.
    So on a side note..if the owner or management team sees this review...I will fix all these issues in trade for a weekend stay again?
    I have done flooring for 35 years now... i can make this place look more like it should for the cost it takes to stay in it!

    But to anyone that made it this far in the review...yes lease this place...because other than those 2 little is a wonderful place.

    We love the house but were very disappointed that the fence around the pool was missing a panel. We have little kids and so that is unacceptable. We called and reported it and someone came out and leaned a piece of plywood up against it. It blew down and they came out again and fixed it.

    This house was amazing!!!! We had 12 adults and three kids and it fit us perfectly. We were not on top of one another and had so much space in the kitchen area!!! The house looked great considering the hurricane and we noticed a few set backs but the house was still in good shape. We booked the house again because we enjoyed it so much.

    This is a wonderful place for a large group.The kids had a fabulous time. The kitchen and furnishing were well equipped for our large family. I would highly recommend this place for a week full of fun in the sun.The door going out to the pool was hard to open and close and and outside light didn't work, but other than that a great place to stay.

    First arrival of the house was impressive. The driveway is very steep to get to house, helps make the area more private. Pool is large so stays cool and enjoyable. Kitchen is commercial Grade and has a Fridge big enough for everyone's food.

    We have been wanting to stay at this house for a while, and it was worth the wait. Plenty of room for everyone. We had 2 families with high school kids, so late night noise was a bit of an issue, but the house had everything we needed.

    We love the house and will rent it again. There was no can opener (surprisingly) in the kitchen so we had to go buy one. Also, you might check the sink in the master bedroom downstairs as it does not drain well at all. Probably clogged. Other than that we love staying there.

    Kimberly W from Round Rock, TX recommends this vacation rental

    My experience with each and every property mgmt professional was nothing but the best. They are all courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. The entire reservation, payment, checking in and out, and follow-up was a breeze. We had a large group and the house was excellent for our vacation. We didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The kitchen was awesome for cooking great meals. The refrigerator and freezers were huge and the ice maker was a plus. By far, everyone's favorite was the pool. Some of the kids didn't even want to go to the beach because of how big and great the pool was. It was nice to float in it after a long day and not be crowded in the pool. There are things that could be improved upon with the house & cost but overall I would rent it again should the need arise.
