    Overall,the house was nice. A little outdated, but it seemed obvious that small changes were being made. The garage was disgusting and smelled awful and because of this we were unable to use any of the amenities down there. However, the pool and backyard made up for it, it was amazing!

    We had such a great time at the Shell House. Location was fantastic, we were a short golf cart ride to the beach, right in town. House was comfortable, plenty of space, beautiful porch that we used morning and night. Our favorite part was the private pool. Adults and kids used the pool daily. We will be renting the Shell House next year!

    Gerard S from Cibolo, TX recommends this vacation rental

    My family had a fabulous time at this rental home! The kids loved the pool and the garage game room. Location is great, quiet neighborhood but close enough to the beach (you do need to drive but that is pretty much what everyone does in Port A) and restaurants. The home is older but very well kept, the bathrooms have been remodeled, the downstairs has a huge walk-in shower. The kitchen has everything you need, though dated, it worked great for us. The backyard is the real gem here, beautiful private pool with a waterfall and night time LED lights that change color. It is so tropical with all the beautiful flowering plants and trees. The pictures don't do it justice. There are tons of new outdoor furniture to lounge by the pool or hang out on the deck. The fence surrounding the property is a tall 6 foot privacy fence, perfect for your dogs. Our dogs loved playing in the backyard. This property is a winner.

    This is our second year using Port A Escapes to book our vacation, I will always use them when booking in Port Aransas. I think their website is very accurate, we never have to wait, everything is always ready for us, whether you are checking in or out. Thanks again for a great Vacay!

    We found the Shell House to be very clean, bright and inviting! We loved the oppurtunity to have different members of our family to join us at different times. I think if they had a sofa sleeper and allowed up to 10 adults at a time we would have booked for two weeks instead of one. The garage was great with the air hockey, (yes we dared to turn it on!), ping pong table and the foose ball table. The only thing I did not like was the steep stairway down into the garage, and the moldy smell in the garage. I do think they should refund the damage fee if no damage is done. All in all we enjoyed our time at the Shell House.

    We checked in on Sunday, everything was great. When we came back from dinner that night (around 10:15) the air conditioner was not working. I called Port A Escapes, they actually answered the phone and had a serviceman at the house to fix it within 15 minutes. That's pretty impressive customer service IMHO.

    The Shell House is lovely, the one drawback is those STEEP stairs to the basement but we are sure that is just something that can't be helped and shouldn't take away from our overall rating. In one of the bedrooms, however, the bedding was covered in short, black pet hair, possibly missed by housekeeping.

    From start to finish we had a wonderful experience with our rental! The smoke alarm kept going off even when we moved the toaster away from the smoke alarm, no biggie we just had to remember to turn on the stove fan anytime we were in the kitchen to cook anything. The property was just as described although a bit farther from the beach than we expected. A great time was had by all and we REALLY appreciate it being pet friendly as we travel with our pet who is indeed a part of our family. Definitely recommend the property management company and this property!! The area around the property was clean and neighbors friendly and helpful! Close to restaurants, shopping and fairly close to the beach.

    We loved the Shell house. It made our beach vacation fantastic!! We spent most of our time in the pool. 2 Things to mention. Be sure you have mosquito repellant, they love the yard as much as we did. Also, the dryer does not shut off. It will dry your clothes to death. Will definitely try to book this house in the future!!

    Our stay was very nice & relaxing...having our own pool was a huge plus! The house was nicely decorated & clean. Although,they were refoofing the house for a day & a half while we were there,(we knew this in advance)it was not that bad(just noisy) but we were gone to the beach for most of it, & the owners discounted our stay for the inconvenience. The house is only 5 minutes from the beach, & as close to all the shopping & dining. My only suggestion to future guest is that if you will be cooking alot, bring a good skillet--the ones in the house are old & scratched up(everything sticks!)but all the other dishes were great. The pool was great & the game room in the garage was too! It did have a musty smell, as all the other reviews said, but we just opened the garage door & the back door & it kept a nice breeze coming though! Thank you so much for our stay---we will definitely be returning!

    Cori B from Coppell, TX recommends this vacation rental

    The house was in a great location. It was a 1 or 2 minute drive to the beach, and it was easily accessible to town. Beach parking is super easy. The house was perfect for our family of 5, and was clean and well maintained. The only complaint I have would be the musty smell in the basement and the very dirty futon still down there. The door opens to the outside, and there was a fan down there, so it was fine to play the air hockey table, but I think just a little tlc in the basement could go a long way to improving the property greatly. We would most definitely book the property again. The little pool was really fun for the kids and a great perk as well.

    We had a wonderful time in this rental. The location is somewhat far from the beach, but the private pool and gameroom more than made up for it. The furnishings are a bit worn, but the house is clean and nicely decorated. The only downsides are the steep stairs to the garage/gameroom and the lack of internet access. But with everything else to do onsite, who really needs the internet?! Would definitely stay here again.

    2 adult couples, we totally enjoyed this place and suggest you check it out (It would accommodate 2 more people easily and you could add someone on couch and air mattress to max it out). Wraparound deck,very private, clean, small pool, fenced upstairs porches and backyard. POOL: Fountain runs Noon - midnight, very relaxing. NOTE: Ask mgmt co. for Pool LED Light remote, otherwise you can't turn on super groovy pool lights. The master bedroom upstairs is very private and the only thing we'd change is upgrade the Queen bed to a King, there is plenty of room for a King. NO WIFI, we didn't miss it. We came to relax, not surf the internet! The kitchen is small, but we like to eat out for lunch and dinner so that was perfect too. Foosball table a bit rusty, but ping-pong and air hockey were quite playable. All in all, a GREAT rental and very fairly priced.

    This is the second time we have rented the Shell House while vacationing in Port A, as it is a perfect fit for our family. I really enjoy the wrap around porches to sit out and enjoy coffee in the morning. Also, having your own pool to come back to after a day at the beach is nice. The beach is only a few blocks away, but we rented a golf cart to help us get around town. The owners recently added an outdoor covered bar area, which I sure will be nicer in the summer months. I would recommend they patio the bar area and the new grill area in to make it more functional and add some outdoor lighting. The family had a really relaxing time and enjoyed our visit. I hope to return the Shell House again next summer!

Easy walk to the beach and also to the main road for easy access to the town. We'd love to come back with friends for another stay.

    Was disapointed that we could not get in earlier - drove by the house and no one was there doing any maintenance. Had to wait until 4:00. The house could have been cleaner and the yard needed to mowed. I think that would help with the mosquito problem. Overall it was a good place to stay and we enjoyed the pool, foose ball table, ping pong & air hockey. As a mom, the washer/dryer were great. Overall the stay was a 4, property condition a 4, location a 4, clean a 3, property mgmt. a 4. Yes, I would recommend.

    the gaming tables. Overall I was pleased with the property.

    My wife rented The Shell House so we could attend my neices wedding on the beach. My daughter, son and son-in-law and I stayed 3 nights. The Shell House is very nice with a lot of room. The kitchen came with ample utensils. The pool was clean and refreshing. We used it several times every day. The mesquitos were tough out back, but we fought back. We had tournments with the games down stairs. It was warm, but not hot during the competition. Appreciated the washer and dryer, but the dryer did not heat up. Had a great time. Would love to return to the same location in the future.

    Overall a great stay: excellent location, pool, yard and wrap around deck were great. Pet friendly a big plus. The house is cute, nice design. Some suggested improvements to make the stay even better: we've come to expect a "fully stocked kitchen" to include basic spice rack, dishwashing and dishwasher soap (especially if you ask us to load and run dishwasher upon leaving!). Really need to get internet there to have full amenities (the cafe down the street was always too crowded!). Pool lights were great, but we wouldn't have known about them unless we asked about the fountain (which was not working for our stay). Need to re-set timers on the sprinkler system to go off in early morning rather than 3:00 in the afternoon! Should get rid of the ratty old futon in the basement. Game tables are old but still functional, just make sure they remain in working condition (nice diversion). We brought a pump to try to get the bikes to work (they are not advertised but we were told we could use them). Seats would not adjust (screw stripped), so again, a little maintenance would make them a nice added amenity (we brought our daughters' bikes), especially since its an easy bike ride to beach or around town. A+ for the property management team, they were very helpful, although a card/welcome folder with map, restuarants, grocery store, other services around town (business center), would be useful to have in the house (ended up calling and asking property management group about these things) Spent every night grilling and on deck or pool patio, but a simple Weber grill would be improvement over public-park style grill in back (too small and no cover to smoke meats). Would definitely consider returning or recommending.

    Jerry p from Georgetown, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    Our family chose this house because it had a private pool which we utilized alot. Someone even came to clean the pool during our stay. The location of the house is central to town and the beach. We rented a golf car to travel about town and to/from the beach. Our only complaint is the dish satellite did not work during our stay and we told management about it, but no one seemed to check into it. So we watched dvds that we brought along in the living room and master. The two other rooms do not have tv/dvd players.

    Also the bedroom with the 3 twin beds needs to say 2 twins and a trundle bed (which transforms the room into one giant bed!) We were disappointed when we arrived because we thought there were actually 3 real twin beds--the master is large enough to accomidate a twin/cot/airmattress if needed.

    But overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again in the future.

    The shell house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and were able to sleep comfortably. The home was clean and the pool was fantastic for the evening bar-b-q's.

    My only complaints were that the house was a bit small and quite crowded with 7 people all in the house at once. The bedrooms (except for the master) were only large enough for beds and that's it! The house was also a bit older and outdated than other homes we stayed in, however, the price was right and you get a pool so it seems that we got a good deal.

    My first impression was the house is that it is old with not many updates. But it is a rental house so what should I expect right? The bathrooms look to have been updated and are nice, but the old dirty blue carpets really need to be changed. Also the leather sofa while comfy is dirty. Beyond those items, the house is sufficient for a rental property. We did not have any maintenance issues while we were there...everything was working properly. The master is upstairs and we have 2 little ones and didn't want to leave them on a floor by themselves so we all stayed on the main floor and never used the upstairs, which was fine. As others reviewed the garage is very musty smelling. We only used it once and opened the garage door to the pool side and my husband and daughter played air hockey. It was ok with the door open. I have to say the best part of this house was the POOL!!! It is a perfect size and was so nice to have a private pool after being at the crowded beach all morning. Without the pool it's just like any other property. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool. There was dish soap and detergent there and extra trash bags, beyond that bring your own. I was a little confused that there were no regular drinking glasses...only wine and margarita glasses and coffee cups ( unless I overlooked it). So if we stay here again I'd bring some plastic ones. Others reviewed about mosquitos in backyard but we did not have that issue. Very close to beach and restaurants. Overall we enjoyed our stay just a little grossed out by the carpet!!! We'd probably stay here again for the private pool.

    The Shell House was wonderful and having the private pool would have been amazing had the weather cooperated - it was rainy and cold. We just stayed inside and relaxed. We left a couple of times to eat out and found some great places for fresh seafood. Would have been nice to have more chairs for the dining table but all in all it was a comfortable clean beach house and the wrap around porch was awesome. Management company was most helpful and very friendly, will use them again.
