Glynnis G. from Robinson, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014
Love this condo--the location is perfect with an easy walk to the beach. The bed linens and towels were very soft--a bonus for any beach room! New fridge and microwave were appreciated and worked great. The only complaint--it appears that housekeeping needs to pay a little more attention--we found a chip clip on the floor by the lamp table. It was greasy and gross! Really, how did you miss something that big? All in all, though, this is probably our favorite beach location!

Location is great. Room was basically clean (clean sheets/shower/floor),but the property is falling apart. All appliances almost completely rusted out; drywall falling off window frame in chunks; microwave rusted and gross; vertical blinds missing sections so no privacy at night.

Great Value over Thanksgiving Weekend
A guest from Round Rock, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013
Pros: Great location being right on the beach. Excellent view of the ocean from the balcony and you can totally hear it! The balcony is fairly wide and feels bigger than what is pictured. The main room feels bigger as well. The bathroom is a nice size and was very clean. They had 7 nice white towels to use which was nice. The beds were nice and clean. All appliances worked great. As well as heat. They had 2 rolls of tp & some paper towels to use as well as hand and dish soap. Diswasher soap too. The kitchen had all basics to cook with, though pretty cheap like. No loud neighbors or anything. Mgmt was very helpful and professional. I had requested a pack n play for our 2 month old and they had it ready for us along with sheets. It was clean and new. Nice tv. Cons: The couch looked dirty and I didn't want to sit on it. kitchen table chairs seemed dirty too (cloth). It seems that when they clean here its a light cleaning. Doen't look like anyone cleans under the beds, couch, etc. The blinds are really chincy and a couple fell off. Looks like it's happened many times before as evidenced by the tape holding up many of the blinds. Overall this place was great for the price. I do think it could use a little tlc though.

Mary E. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013
This is a wonderful location and dog friendly. The grounds were well maintained. The property's interior could use a little help and this wouldn't cost much. Oven not functioning, bamboo rug deteriorated and bedcovers & skirts need to be updated. Chairs on patio need upgrade. Just some of the "comforts" that could really make the place "loveable".

Forgot the ravages of Coastal wear and tear. At my visit two years ago, the refrierator and microwave looked brand new. This time the corrosion was disgusting. I would not use that microwave. There was visible wood rot at the sliding door. On the up side, the unit was clean and the beds comfortable. I had a plumbing issue and the plumber was there and gone in a half hour-issue resolved. The location is great.

Probably one of the best deals for ocean view. There are roaches and some of the appliances are rusty due to the salt water humidity - but they still work fine. Good for couples and couples with dogs, but may be too small for a family.

The location of the unit was great for beach and town access. However, the unit had a terrible smell to it. It was almost unbearable.

Nichole T. from SA, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2013
The space was a little smaller then the pictures show, but for only 2 people the space wsa big enough. We were just expecting some seperate living spaces. The appliances were a little rusty, but usable. The over head light in the kitchen and one of the overhead sinks did not work either, so we had to make due with the light that we had. When we called for a late check out, like we were told that we could do at check in without a fee, we were given a hard time by another rep in the office. After arguing for a bit with me on the phone I was told taht they would do it, that they would probably get in trouble but they would do it. It was the way that the office representative said it and the words that were used. The communication can definetely be better in the office in order to not affect the guests. Our stay was very nice, but with the way that it ended, we would definetely consider staying some place else.

who do you get help from? not the people at the office on site?
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012
The condo was nice and well equipt. I did not read all of the emails to find out that the people at the office on site does not manage all of the units contained within the complex. My mistake, apparently some of the condo owners don't use the staff in the front office of the complex. If you are one of the unfortunate souls that do not catch this detail you will be treated in a very rude fashion. After you take enough abuse and disrespect they will tell you where you need to go to get keys for the unit that you rented. When you finally contact the right people they are very helpful and courteous. The people on site will treat you like trash if you rent a unit they do not manage. I would stay there again if it were very clear and suscenct as to whom I need to contact to obtain the keys and whom I should pay. I clearly understand why some owners do not use the onsite management facility/staff.

Our time on Port Aransas was enjoyable. Our stay at Sounds of the Ocean 147 was pleasant. The location and view were great! Although it didn't harm our visit, the shades of the doorwall and window need to be repaired or replaced as well as the heat/AC unit. As we don't have pets, the lingering pet hair from the previous occupant(s) was a nuisance. We will be returning!

Great Location
A guest from Elk Mound, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in January, 2012
The location of this efficiency is superb. We didn't see any location on Port Aransas that we would have preferred. The Island Retreat staff does an excellent job of maintaining the grounds. The efficiency itself is attractive but had several things that did not work particularly well, i.e. blinds on window and door did not work at all, the dish washer did not work effectively, screens to the balcony were torn so bugs could get inside. We tried the a/c once and it didn't appear to be working. Fortunately we didn't really need it so our a/c experience may not be a fair evaluation. Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay at the efficiency and would recommend it to others.

Dog Friendly Beachfront Condo was a Hit!
Reviewed by: Gail M. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011
Deep in the heart of Island Retreat is where you will find this efficiency condo. It is perfectly sandwiched between the pool and the beach. Although small in square footage, this property offered comfy beds, well appointed kitchen, spacious balcony and flat screen TV. Yes, the A/C unit labored to cool the condo and really never got chilly. However, an easy fix would be to replace the plastic window blinds with blackout drapes offering insulation from the heat of the the sun and adding a welcome escape from the blistering bright sunrise. If you plan to cook, bring your spices, coffee filters and foil. We will absolutley stay here again.

Not a negative, just a heads up. Bring coffee filters, salt, pepper, ANY condiments you'll need. Great property, welll kept grounds, pool is nice. You can't hear the surf - the A/c noise on the deck/patio drowns out any "nature noises". You can see the gulf, but not really the beach per se. The dunes block the waves but overall it is a good view and good location. My dog and I had a cery NICE stay.

Lovely property with a terrific view
Reviewed by: Janine L. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay in #147. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and I enjoyed walking my dogs in the lush grass. We were lucky to be there during a full moon, so the ocean view from the balcony was stunning both night and day. The beds are comfortable and I appreciated having a ceiling fan above the beds since I am used to sleeping under a fan at home. The only complaint I have about this room is the noise from the AC unit. During the day it wasn't a problem, but at night when we were trying to get to sleep, it was a real nuisance. I wished that I had brought my m3 player to provide some soothing music through ear plugs to fall asleep to.

Property in a great location, close to the beach Boardwalk, swimming pool, etc. The wifi was a challenge in that it required a login almost hourly, quite annoying. There was a large disconnect between the leasing agent and the property manager as the leasing company told us 2x that we did not need parking and pool passes but the property manager told us that we did. Overall, we loved our stay and the property was convenient, well taken care of, and in a great location. The wifi and the disconnect between the managers was a minor inconvenience.

There were sugar ants in the kitchen that need to be taken care of. The faucet in the bathroom is dripping. The caulking between the bathtub and shower wall needs to be rechaulked.

The only request I would make for the next vacationer is to service the wall AC unit. It's a little loud when it cycles on.

Stayed for 6 days in April, 2011
Had a wonderful time. amenities were great. did want to let the managers know that we did find ants on counter in kitchen, but I think that is probably a monthly battle. Would definitely recommend the efficiency we stayed in. was super clean and really cute. view was wonderful as well. Thanks!

Would recommend this unit, BUT....
A guest from Waco, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011
#147 is very clean, nice, but way over-priced compared to similar efficiencies and one bedroom units managed by Island Retreat. Port A Escapes told me there were no discounts for April when I booked, but the internet offered 20% discounts for April on 4/5/11 when we were there. Office said they "would look into it." I have not heard from them.

Island Retreat room 147IR
Christine G. from Universal City, Texas recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011
This condo was awesome. I really was happy with my stay in 147IR. It had all ammenties.The kitchen had everything. You have a little housekeeping to do before you leave but it is well worth it.Staff didn't tell me which condo I was staying at so I had to do some hunting for what I saw on the internet.Lesson learned..make sure you ask what is the exact name of the condo before arriving, especially after dark.Overall this is a great place to stay and I will seek it again when I come back to Port A.

Sound of the Ocean: Our Best Stay in Port A
Tony B. from Austin, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2011
My wife and I live in Austin. We have friends in Port Aransas and visit frequently. This condo offered by far the best value and experience we have had down there. The condo was immaculate, had an amazing deck facing the beach and ocean, and the grounds were very well maintained and perfect for exercising or small dog. We plan on booking with Port A Escapes again.
