Best Beach House in Port A - PERIOD

  • 5 of 5

This house is the BEST beach house in Port A - PERIOD! It's located RIGHT on the beach and has been lovingly maintained, full of character only created by years of family fun. Everything has been thought of and every need is met. It may not look like something out of a current Coastal Living magazine but it did years ago, and sometimes it's better to have a nostalgic feel at the beach rather than "completely new and refurbished". Beds are comfortable, everything is clean and in working order, SO nice to have an actual garage so close to the beach. We especially enjoy the cover and semi-enclosed downstairs area that is great for hanging out/visiting OUT of the sun and wind for awhile. My only personal disappointment is that I don't spend enough time AT the beach because the house is so nice and the waves are still just right there, and that porch swing is just oh, so comfortable. We've visited twice now and are so grateful to the family for sharing their slice of paradise. We don't even look for options anymore, we just schedule our annual spring Port A visit with friends at the Sunshine House! Thanks so much for having us back again!

Owner's Response: Chris, thank you so much for your wonderful review!!!! I think you summed it up very well in your review how our family feels about this very unique house on the beach. The shade of the porch is nice to have an option to get out of the sun. It is difficult sometimes leaving the deck since it is so comfortable and the view is so nice. We are so happy that you enjoyed it so much and look forward to you coming back again and again.

This property was perfect! Amazing view, right on beach, great for all ages, and beds were so comfy!

  • 5 of 5

Property is well maintained and well thought out. 2 car garage has a shower for rinsing off after the beach. I was able to take the hard top off my Jeep for the 1st time at the beach and store in the garage which was awesome. Bottom 1/2 is great for kids ( it's locks up tight so u know they r safe), 3 beds and bathroom has its own little deck with table and nice decor sand and trees, nice breeze flow. The upstairs bedroom we stayed in had really comfortable beds and pillows, was very clean, and has an amazing view. There's a huge deck for chilling and playing cards. Right by a restaurant if u don't feel like cooking but u still have privacy. We have rented beach houses in Port A every year for the past 6 years and so far this our favorite spot. Thanks John for allowing us to stay at your wonderful house. We look forward to staying again soon.

Best Condo Ever

  • 5 of 5

Best condo/house ever stayed in. Had top of the line amenities loved the view and convince of being right on the beach. Best part had two separate quarters for the teens to go and come as they please without bothering the young ones. Loved it was fully stocked with towels,paper towels, toilet paper, spices. Will be staying there from now on:) I even came home and ordered the same duvets the bed was so comfortable. Best part could use the garage and shower off prior to entering the house
