About Bee Gee McBride, Property Manager Bee Gee's Coastal Quarters

I retired from education in 2009. I had bought my first rental in 2007 and this lovely property became available. I have always loved this dome which is on the highest sand dune in Port A. It is also located right next door to my other properties and just a few steps from the beach! I hope that my guests can enjoy all that Port Aransas has to offer. It is my favorite place on Earth.

Bee Gee McBride, Property Manager Bee Gee's Coastal Quarters purchased this house in 2007

Why Bee Gee McBride, Property Manager Bee Gee's Coastal Quarters chose Gulf Coast

Port Aransas off 11th St. is just a hop, skip from the beach. I live on property next door and this street is quiet yet in a family neighborhood. Lots of offstreet parking. You never have to worry about someone being around if you need extra supplies, a lightbulb, or attention in other areas.

What makes this house unique

This house couldn't be more well suited for family vacations. Nothing better than being close to the beach and having a pool at your disposal.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for having such a wonderful place here. We really enjoyed our sunny weekend with our family. Always great to see you!

Adios for now

Great Place for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at the dome and cottage with our 3 Children (5,7 and 15) our faithful pups and my parents.

My parents stayed in the cottage while my husband I and the kids stayed int he Dome. the Kids LOVED the loft bedroom in the dome and thought it was such a cool space to sleep in. It was great having my parents in the cottage. It gave them a little privacy and the ability to get some quiet time while still feeling like they were on the trip with us. We loved sitting on the deck looking out at the water in the evenings.

Having the pool was fantastic. My kids swam in the pool probably more than they swam in the ocean. It was really nice being so close to the beach and since we rent a golf cart when we come getting to the beach was very easy.

We are already trying to figure out when we will come back.

First house we rented

  • 2 of 5

This house was our first actual house to rent. We will always rent a house now for our vacation but not this house again. The shower upstairs has drainage issues and trying to have an adult take a shower in the tub down stairs was very hard. You can use the shower upstairs but they knew the drainage was bad and have not fixed the problem. There were multiple dead cockroaches in the house that we found. We were told prior to arrival via email that there was enough detergent to do 2 loads of laundry. When we arrived there was no detergent so we went and bought our own. We were under the idea that that pool was private with this house, but you have to share the pool with other renters. Every time we went to use the pool, it was being cleaned, vacuumed, chemicals dumped into the pool while we were in the pool. Very inconvenient. We initially had another house booked but we're forced to change homes due to reconstruction. We chose the dome because we wanted a house with a pool. It took a couple of weeks to get our deposit return because of this changing of the contract, plus we had to short our vacation a day in order to get the same price. We will shop around and visit the homes next time before we just book.

Owner's Response: Obviously, I am saddened about this guest's remarks. We work so hard to give our guests the best experience possible. We have replaced the drain in the shower upstairs and this will no longer be an issue. Our description does say that the dome shares the pool with the guest house which could be 1-4 more people. At the time this family stayed, there was just one couple in the guest house which is located down on the level by the pool. We are constantly updating this property. If a guest ever has an issue, they need only let us know any time day or night and we will try our best to make everything right. We did not hear anything from these guests during their stay.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

For the most part it was a great stay. I will say when I searched for a place to stay my most important thing was pets allowed and handicap accessible. This property allowed pet and said it was handicap accessible, however it was not handicap accessible by any means.

Other than that we don't really have any complaints.

Owner's Response: We try very hard to accommodate our guests. We are in the process of adding a downstairs shower for our handicapped guests. We now have an outdoor shower with hot and cold water. I am sorry there was a miscommunication with this guest. A wheelchair can access all areas of the downstairs and the deck. Guests' comfort is paramount. BeeGee's Coastal Quarters

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the 4th of July! Plenty of room for all-Dome House, Bunk House and Cottage. Everyone had their space with a wonderful deck and pool for gathering as a group. Early mornings on the deck were inspiring. The beach was within walking distance. Plenty of activities from horse back riding on the beach, to deep sea fishing to dolphin cruise (just naming a few) Very clean and fully furnished. We did not want for a thing, except maybe another day or two there! Highly recommend this vacation rental!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, sparkling clean home with plenty of room for the whole family. The deck is amazing! With wonderful views and breezes, we spent a great deal of time out there. The kids enjoyed the bunkhouse. The pool was perfect for a morning swim or hanging out in the evenings. We had two dogs with us, so the grassy, fenced-in area and gated deck area was nice for them to play in. We also rented the Wahoo which was just a lovely and well-appointed as the main house. All of this, and it was close to the beach and downtown.

Owner's Response: It does me proud when I realize that our guests LOVE our places. There may be bigger, newer places in Port A, but no one cares more about their guests than we do. I think the pride we take in presenting our properties makes our guests feel welcome. Thanks for putting that in words. Please come see us again - soon and often.
