    Paul T from Midland, Tx recommends this vacation rental

    This rental was better than we expected! The accommodations were wonderful and spacious (9 kids under eight years old and eleven adults with 3 visiting). Although the weather was not Spring Break weather, the location to the beach could not have been better, 2 minute walk; the kitchen had everything we could have needed to feed the amount of people we had; bedrooms and bathrooms were just the right size, comfortable bedding and perfect bathrooms for our needs; common area was spacious for several activities to go on without any problems; the pool and patio areas would have been great despite the weather; 3rd floor was great for the kids to play f-ball (wish dart board would had all the pieces and working; or had more games than advertized but still awesome! Parking was not a problem either and location to stores/restaurants. Would will totally come back for our next reunion!

    a guest from Floresville, Tx recommends this vacation rental

    Overall stay was awesome and relaxing! Plenty of room for Mima & Papa, our five children and spouses plus seven grandchildren. Like the floor plan; bedrooms on 1st floor with family gatherings upstairs in the spacious living area. Having private pool was a bonus. The high back chairs on 2nd floor deck were so comfortable! Kitchen was well equipped. Housekeeping was good in visible areas. Closet floors had sand, etc... Ants were an issue if we did not keep floor swept of crumbs and there were a few small roaches. Reported to property management upon departure and they stated would take care of. Stairs were a concern with small children (no stair gates), watched kids closely. Booked for 2014 extending a day ;)

    We really enjoyed the house. Loved the open kitchen to living. Would like to have had more of an ocean view but that's ok. The boardwalk was awesome.....very short. All in all it was a great house!!

    a guest from Austin, TX recommends this vacation rental

    From the time we checked in at Port Aransas Escapes to check out, it was a top class experience. The staff was friendly and professional. The home we rented "the Big Kahuna" was beyond our expectations. Beautifully decorated, well stocked and spotless. Lots of room for all of us. The pool was small and in the shade most of the day, so was not used by us. The community pool was nice with plenty of sun, shade and a bathroom. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home.

    Jan F from Plano, TX recommends this vacation rental

    This was our second year to stay at the Big Kahuna. We had 16 people in our group. The access to the beach is easy. The kitchen/family room is large and accommodates everyone well. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. The blender is awesome. There is a washer and dryer on the first and second levels. The pool was great for the kids. The chlorine level is very high, so I would recommend bringing some goggles. I would recommend this house to anyone.

    Our family stayed 5 nights and had a great time. We had 16 (including 6 children). The pool was great, but the chlorine was a little strong. We just used goggles and enjoyed it. The open kitchen/family room is great for a big crowd. The kitchen is well stocked. We will definitely be going back next year.

    Our family of 16 had a wonderful time all under one roof! Everything was very nice and comfortable! Only thing is description is misleading - there are only 4 shower/tubs in the house, not 6. There is a 1/2 bath in the 3rd floor game room, 2 full private baths in the king suites on the 2nd floor, 1/2 bath off the kitchen, a full bath between the king rooms on the first floor and a hollywood bath (2 toilets and 1 shower) between the double bed rooms on the first floor. A plus was an extra refrigerator in the garage for all your beverages - nice to have! The property was hard to find at first, lots of construction in the area; but just a short walk to the beach! Overall, we loved it and would recommend it to anyone!!!!

    It was wonderful.We couldn't have ask for anything more. The lay out of the house made it so easy for us all to be together in the same place at one time. On one day we had 42 of my family for an evening. IT WAS GREAT!!! We have a large family & it's very hard to find any where for us to be together at one time. We would rent this again in the future.
    THANK YOU FOR SUCH A GREAT PLACE!!!!

    The Big Kahuna was absolutely everything we could want for our large family. It was beautifully decorated all throughout, had a very spacious living area/kitchen area to all hang out in, and the beds were extremely comfortable. We would definitely recommend this house for a vacation spot. We will be coming back for sure!

    The house was exactly as described on the website. It was perfect for my Christmas family get-together. There were 18 people and we fit perfectly in the home and never felt like we were crowded.
    The only thing we would change is the private pool. A hottub would be used much more than the small pool. But all in all it was a fabulous experience and we want to come back next year!

    Margaret M from Taylor, TX recommends this vacation rental

    First, I want to say "thank-you" to the owners for this beautiful experience of sharing their wonderful beach home with our family. This beach home has it all,,its lacking nothing,,and so very nicely decorated in calming colors. There are a few views of the ocean that are not blocked of vision,,you can hear the ocean and all its voice very clearly,,and see the beautiful moon and stars from the upper balcony. We truly enjoyed my husbands 50th birthday,,and fishing and relaxing and napping. The house is very well kept up in structure and furnishings, it has plenty of room for 3-5 families and then some,,,all the rooms are so nicely decorated and the home gives you a peaceful feeling of being "at Home",,some areas needed more cleaning as the kitchen counters had some crumbs from past guests and a few blankets needed to be washed,,other than that it was clean. Everyone at Port Aransas Escapes were very helpful,,especially Lisa who professionally answered all my questions and went out of her way to help with everything. I will be sure to use them again in the near future for my next rental,,and highly recommend them and highly recommend the Big Kahuna! Port A is such a wonderful, nice place to be!!

    We had a wonderful time at this property. The ONLY thing that was an issue was that we saw 3 small roaches and 1 big one in the kitchen 2 of the 4 days we stayed. It kinda freaked us out but besides that everything in the house was super nice and clean despite the 'other' occupants. We told the property managers when we dropped off the key & they were very concerned & apologetic & said they would address that immediately.

    Lori L from Wichita, Kansas recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of 17 was very pleased with the Big Kahuna, which is located less than a block from the beach and easily accessed with a well-maintained footbridge. The house was spotless and in great condition. (Despite, that several members of our group spotted a few small roaches, which was most unwelcome. Nonetheless, we suspect they are hard to eradicate completely.)Another drawback is that the house is completely devoid of materials that absorb sound -- carpeting, mostly. While that makes for a sleek, chic decor, it also offers no buffer against noise, particularly for those on the lower level. The noise of other houseguests enjoying the terraces, for example, or simply moving about the house upstairs is very pronounced. Those were the two main complaints. Otherwise, the house offers everything you could want -- stunning decor, comfortable and lovely furnishings, spectacular mattresses and pillows, abundant kitchen utensils and equipment, even four beach bikes for guest use. The pool is nice, especially for small kids, but postage-stamp sized, so don't choose this house if that amenity is very important to you. Overall, we give this spacious home 8 out of 10 stars.

    a guest from Alexandria, VA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a nice time at the Big Kahuna. Lots of room, good facilities. The only negative was the cool wx so the water was refreshing. The house pool needs to be heated/open more to some sun so the pool could be used during times like this.
    They've also built several other units VERY close by (u can jump from one patio to the next door neighbors), so I'd be a little concerned about some privacy/noise.
