    Andrew A from San Antonio, TX recommends this vacation rental

    The house had plenty of room for two families of four. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. The dining room table was big enough to seat all eight of us and to play games. The walk to the beach was easy and you can park about 200 yards from the beach in the neighborhood closest to the boardwalk. The downstairs room is only accessible from the outside which was okay for our kids ages 9-12 but I would be hesitant to have kids down there any younger.

    Veronica C from San Antonio, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We came up for the Beach to Bay Run and had a great stay with our rental. There were 9 of us and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Coming back next yr if not sooner. There was one small complaint and that would be with the woman who handled my check in initially. She was VERY rude and unprofessional. (Very Heavy set woman with blond hair and I believe she had glasses on)I wish I would have gotten her name, but she has no business working with customers. The other ladies were very pleasant. Overall all we had a GREAT time!

    Comfortable home...But stairs are very narrow to go up to house.If we would have been 10 years older we might not have made it up with our luggage!!This is 2nd home I have stayed in here and it is very comfortable.Spa Escapes also sent someone over when we had problems with the TV.We rented a few years from Starkey rentals and they pretty much ignored us...thanks for being attentive...Suggest leaving TV instructions... Had 4 remotes!!!!

    Another great vacation rental from Port A Escapes. Just as the pictures show, the house is light and airy with plenty of comfortable options for watching tv or curling up with a good book. The location was ideal, being far enough from town that the beaches felt like a private oasis. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    Jessica F from Spring Branch, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, the place was great! We had seven people with plenty of room to spare. The location was close enough to town that we could drive in for anything we needed but far enough that the beaches felt quiet and semi-private. The boardwalk was only a short
    walk and an access rd was nearby when we wanted to bring the car down to the beach. There were a few minor details that the management advised they would address (coffee maker missing carafe, loose door handle) but nothing that would stop us from returning
    for another stay in this rental. Management advised that had we called them about the coffee pot during our stay, they would have brought us a new one. Good to know for next time!

    The Happy Starfih was clean, spacious and well maintained. The open space of the living, dining room and small kitchen gave everyone space and still be able to interact. The kitchen was well provisioned in utensils and pots. Planning for our next trip to the Happy Starfish.

    Jim C from Killeen, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    This rental was more than we expected in terms of location, spaciousness, and size. We had a large family of 8 and we had way more living space than we required. Great experience with the rental company, who were always professional and very friendly. We felt very comfortable and the large sofas hosted many a long afternoon nap! The only small negative was the broken ice machine in the fridge... Easily solved by buying our own ice but would have been a huge plus to have ice maker in the kitchen already. We had such a great time !! Would def return.

    the property management company was so great to work with from beginning to end. also, the house was perfectly clean and comfortable. it is a bit of a walk to the beach and there isn't clear signage, but if you just walk in the direction of the beach you'll figure it out. great experience all the way around! (btw, the management company told us there wasn't internet access in the house, but there is! pleasant surprise :) )

    Overall it was a great experience and we enjoyed our stay. The property was pretty dirty though with sticky spots on the counters and tables, hair and dirt on the floor, crumbs on the couch, and a bad ant problem in the kitchen. Master bedroom needs a mattress pad; only a plastic cover between the sheet and mattress. Deck needs some repairs of loose boards and screws sticking up. A/C unit in bottom level room very dirty and probably needs to be replaced. Location was close to the beach and was a short walk as stated. But even with these things, we still had a great time. Lost Colony is a great subdivision.

    Anthony A from Austin, Tx recommends this vacation rental

    Location was very good, and we would definitely rent there again. The house was very clean and well stocked with a nice decor and plenty of room, looks just as nice as the photos!, nice deck (can see a SLIVER of the ocean from up there), with lots of room. The beach it's lined up with is quite nice, soft sand, though there is seaweed, but great for kids. Does have traffic driving on beach occasionally, probably quite busy in summer months. So, here's the issues & things to be aware of:
    1. stairs are very steep (bad for toddlers & elderly/injured)
    2. Second floor and first floor are connected only by stairs outside - if you have older indepedent kids, it's great - they have a completely separate sleeping area with shower, bathroom, mini-fridge, 3 good beds, dvd player/tv and couch. If younger, you REALLY need baby monitor at the least.
    3. Advertises sleeper sofa, there were NO pull-out sleeper sofas or ones big enough to comfortably sleep an adult
    4. Pool is not heated, so if winter time not useful.
    5. Grill is basic Weber round charcoal, downstairs under deck, so not very easy to get to and from. We didn't use it, just wasn't worth it. But kitchen was well stocked, so no biggie.
    6. This was second furthest unit in the area, which meant a fairly long walk along drive way (about 5 minutes), but definitely bearable, and didn't have to cross any roads.
    Overall, it was great, well worth it, and staff was very helpful and worked with us so didn't have to go out of our way (like delivery of keys or other stuff).
