Recent Port Aransas reviews

  • Great location, great amenities, great communication

    "My friends and I were looking to upgrade from a town home to a home on our annual trips to Port A. The Sea Parrot worked really well for our needs. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment. There weren't any complaints about the beds and the place looked and felt very clean. The decks had good quality outdoor furniture. Barbara was good about getting back to me within 24 hours on any questions I had about our upcoming visit. The location is great - about 5 minutes away from groceries, bars or the ferry. We had one day of crappy weather, but the house was large enough that all 14 of us weren't stepping over each other as we weathered the storm and stayed entertained. Walking distance from the beach."

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Cute beach house. However, blinds are pretty beat up and some do not work at all. House is showing a little "wear anad tear" and could use a fresh coat of touch up painting. My family used to have several rentals in Port A. One at Grand Carribean and two at The Seagull. We usually had beach towels, hangers, small boxes of laundry detergent and Kleenix for our guests. So I was surprised and a little disappointed none of these were provided. But I have since come to find out some rentals do not provide these. At the minimum you should provide Kleenix."

  • Fun time.

    "While this property was the perfect location and the perfect size, it had a musty smell on the ground and second floor, which needed a good airing out. The beds were messy - which made one wonder if they had been changed. The kitchen cabinets were sticky and many of the dishes/utensils needed a good scrubbing, which we did before we used them. This is a great house and I will be back - I hope the cleaning lady gets a harsh talking to first."

They'll lead you on a tour, explaining each of the exhibits and answer any questions you have about the more than 12,000 documents and photos archived here, along with artifacts, oral histories and movies of Port Aransas in the 1920s. Exhibits like "Great Winds" and "High Water" bring to light natural disasters that have rocked Texas, and other displays include the Fourth Order Fresnel lens that was on top of the Lydia Ann Lighthouse from 1878 through 1952, and more. The museum is open Thursday through Saturday every week and admission is free, so a visit won't break your travel budget.

Explore the space and see what meets your aesthetic appeal, and if you're there on the first Friday of the month, check out the evening receptions that take place for artists, groups or traveling exhibits.

Pack a picnic lunch for a lovely outdoor meal as you take in the scenery, then start up a friendly game of basketball, horseshoe, sand volleyball or shuffleboard. A favorite spot here is the xeriscape garden that's home to plants and wildlife, and it serves to educate and charm visitors.
