About JB Smith

We are Seaside Enterprises Texas. When you are with us, you are SET. We grew up renting beach houses in Maine, Martha's Vineyard, Kitty Hawk, Amelia Island and Key West. We have combined the best of these in our homes on Port A. We want a setting to create a vacation to remember at a home you will return to.

JB Smith purchased this house in 2010

Why JB Smith chose Gulf Coast

This place has a Cape Cod vibe and we bought it 24 hours after we saw it. We loved the tiffany blues inside and the gardens with 20 foot Esperanza, Hibiscus and Bougainvillea.

What makes this house unique

There is a 1 bedroom unit with sleeping loft and full kitchen and living room below, so Islantime Up & Down can combine for a great vacation.

Walk to Everything at Islantime Up
average rating of 4.25 based on 16 reviews

Excellent location, great deck, very homely.

  • 4 of 5

Had a blast here, three good sized bedrooms and floorspace for mattresses etc, so enough for our seven men as long as we shared. Helpful instructions and clean. No real gripes except to say that had we had more adults it would have been a squeeze and there wasn't salt & pepper (although there was jam).

Good fun, excellent value for us. Would come again

This house has everything you need and is within walking distance of restaurants, bars, fishing tours and shopping. Can't go wrong with this rental.

The location and feeling of home with family is great.

  • 2 of 5

However I did see roaches in and outside the home. The amount of items for the visit was limited. Also during the whole stay we were not able to throw away our trash because the trash can was full from a previous stay. The landscape on the home needed to be trimmed. Lastly the place says it sleeps 10 we only able to really sleep six. My family thought we were going to get a whole beach house but only received the upper level. The price we paid we should have been able to get the whole home. Thankfully we were prepared with our owe blow up mattresses and blankets.

Good communication, no issues with the rental. It was very nice, right of the ferry, and close to everything! We had a great time.

No way can this place sleep 10 people!!!

  • 2 of 5

We were very disappointed about the limited space and rooms. It looks great in the picture but it's deceiving since you don't get the whole house just the upstairs part. It can sleep 5-6 people not 10, no way!

Owner's Response: You were a party of 6 and I called you just to review whether the sleeping arrangements accurately described in our information would be right for 6 guys fishing. You said they were just crashing between boats and would be fine. We always discuss the way this home sleeps a group when we can spot an issue because everyone is different and many groups of 10 have happily stayed with us. I recall you gifted the weekend to these guys; I hope they appreciated the gift you gave them and I am sorry we could not accommodate their request, after arrival, to be given the entire house at no additional cost. We do rent the whole house at a discount and offered them this.

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Port A. We rented the upstairs of Islantim, it was very fitting for our group with plently of room for all of us along with the rest of family that arrived for dinner. It was decorated so cute, very beach definitely let you know you're at the beach. Its a nice quiet neighborhood but in walking distance to the park amd shipping channel. We will definitely stay here again.. "A good Time Had By All" Thank You for sharing your home.
