    We enjoyed ringing in the New Year at the beach! This place was clean, nice and comfortable for two people. With highs in the low 30's while we were there, the heater ran the entire time and we still bundled up, but that is to be expected from such an old house. Truly a wonderful, relaxing trip and can't wait to stay here again.

    This was a great spot - walking distance to the ferry landing and several restaurants. We were really impressed with how clean the place was. Large bedroom & bath. But don't believe the bath faucet - we thought we didn't have hot water, only to discover the hot and cold were reversed!! Everything else was perfect.

    My partner,her sis and I had the good fortune to stay here for a much needed and well deserved four day vacation. We have always gone to Bolivar, Galveston or Surfside to enjoy the beach in the past, but have decided that Port A is our new get-a-way destination. The town is small and friendly and we had everything we could possibly need there. Tranquil Tide is the sweetest little place with a really comfy bed, great natural light,convenient to the beach, shops and restaurants and very nicely decorated. It was so nice to come back to a cozy house instead of a hotel or condo!

    We went down for the Sandcastle fest. The cottage was perfect! Completely remodeled and fully loaded! It has a dishwasher and a full size washer and drier, which was perfect for getting all of the sand out of the clothes before we brought them home. There are plenty of great restaurants and a nice cafe and bakery right across the street. Quiet location, just wish is was a little closer to the fest but we would definitely stay there again!

    My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tranquil Tide. My mom and dad even stayed in one of the efficiency cottages right behind us. It was perfect. I have very high standards when it comes to accomodations and this cottage was clean, well stocked and very comfortable for my husband, our two teenagers and me. We usually stay on the beach, but enjoyed staying in town, enjoying all that it has to offer and making daily trips to the beach. It worked well for us. We will be back!!!

    Place was very clean with plenty of light. Advertised 4 could sleep here, but it's more like 3 adults, which is luckily what we had. Bed is a king and then there is a pull out sofa bed in the living room. One bathroom, but it's large. Very convenient walking
    to bars & restaurants in the evenings although you have to drive to the beach. Overall, quite happy and would stay there again under similar circumstances.

    Holly G from Canyon Lake, TX recommends this vacation rental

    The cottage has been renovated.. and is it cute!!! Oh my!! It was stocked with everything we needed for cooking and sleeping. Everything was VERY clean,neat and very spacious. We took our boat and were able to keep it hooked up to the truck and park next to the house without worring about damage/theft. The staff at Port A Escapes was very nice, helpful and flexible.
    Only thing negative was that there was no garden, only a wide open yard next to a parking lot. It would have been nice to sit outside in some chairs with at least some privacy. Overall, all four of us(2 adults 2 kids both under 3 years old) had a great time and will rent it again!!

    Nancy R from Corpus Christi, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Tranquil Tide for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and it was the perfect getaway location to send the holiday. We live 20 minutes away in Corus Christi but with our grown children scattered we try to find neat places to spend our holidays. This was just perfect! We cooked in both days because all the restaurants were closed so the BBQ came in handy. We wee just a short drive to the beach and enjoyed it not being crowded this time of year. We also enjoyed walking the neighborhood and visiting with the neighborhood winter Texans. This is a great place to stay in Port A and you can guarantee, we shall return!

    Pam M from Tipton, Ioha recommends this vacation rental

    We were very happy with our little vacation "home". From the outside, it looks very small, but inside is very roomy and open. It was furnished with everything we needed, and more. Our only disappointment was the couch and internet. It is very uncomfortable to sit on and we were fortunate to have brought along an air mattres, as the couch mattress was not fit for anyone to sleep on. We were not able to connect with wifi the whole time we were there. It requires a password, which is not available to guests, yet we were told that it was not required. Otherwise, this is a wonderful place to stay and the management company was very helpful throughout our experience.

    Sherry G from Plano, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful stay this past weekend. The inside of the cottage was spotless, and the location was perfect...near to everything! The air conditioner in the bedroom kept the temp icy cold, which felt great after coming in from the beach. The property
    management people (Patrick in particular) were friendly and helpful. These were the only disappointments: The couch wasn't too comfortable (front of frame was sticking up into our legs when we sat), something had rotted in the garbage disposal (we cleaned
    it out by running soap and ice cubes through), and the air conditioner in the living area was too small to cool off the den and the kitchen. We had to have the property management company call in an air conditioning man our first night there, and he said the
    temp in that room measured 79...way too hot to sit in the den. That window unit needs to be replaced. Otherwise, we had a fabulous time and would love to stay there again. :)

    I recently stayed two nights at the yellow cottage in Port Aransas. I thought the cottage was in a great location, close to everything. Very charming and clean. It had tons of kitchen utensils if needed which was nice and a comfy bed.

    My main complaint was that I felt the fees are too high and it felt like the management would fine us for anything. I mean "$50 if we don't take out the trash when we leave and roll it to the curb" yet we are charged a $45 clean up fee as well. Use the blue towel to wipe makeup or you'll be charged for stained towels. The long check out list that we had to follow. I get that we are expected to keep the place clean which isn't a problem but I felt it was a tad excessive. I just don't like worrying that I'm going to get a fee for any little thing or like I'm leaving my parents house with a long list of rules. I've rented many rental houses and that was the most excessive of the lists.

    But overall, I think the cottage is great and in a great location.

    Good overall, there were a few minor negatives. The propped open bathroom door starts be a pain after a while, but i know, its an old house. There were a few dead roaches under the bed and under the living room end table. The bedroom just doesn't seem to get cool enough and an iPod player or something for music would be a good addition. But still overall a good stay.. thanks !
