Stayed in room #171 and everything was wonderful! The 3/2 was as large as my home! The balcony has a view that is so peaceful. You can hear the waves and see the ocean! While cooking the sliding glass patio door provides a view of the ocean. I cannot say enough on how wonderful this unit is!

Overall, we had a good stay at the Beachfront Penthouse. The condo is spacious and the pictures in the listing are accurate. The property is still under construction, but luckily our building was not at the time we stayed so the workers and noise did not bother us. It is in a great location- very close to the boardwalk for beach access, across the parking lot is the pool and laundry facilities, and a quick drive to the town for restaurants and gift shops. The condo itself is older and somewhat dated, but the accommodations are simple and adequate if you are just looking for a place close to the beach. The balcony is a nice size with ample seating and full views of the ocean (over the dunes). The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils (except we could not find any grill tools) and we cooked several meals in the condo. We found the condo to be clean-ish; it had the appearance of clean but taking a closer look we found the floors to be quite dirty and in need of a good mopping. The condo could benefit from a deep clean (i.e. under the couches there was lots of trash and dust). We found the beds to be somewhat uncomfortable, and at night we found the AC made the living room freezing while the bedrooms didn't get much air. But we managed just fine with the fans. These small noticings did not interfere with our enjoyment of the quaint little town! We dined at Trout Street Bar and Grill and everyone in our group loved the food. We also loved the beignets at Irie's Island Food! Several people suggested Virginia's on the Bay to us, but we did not love it as much as the other two places. All in all I would stay here again because of the great location and reasonable pricing.

Condo was exactly as shown in pictures and described. Perfect location with easy access to beach and Port A. Very clean and well maintained. We didn’t have any issues at all. Enjoyed Shopping at Rag Doll and Jo D’s!
Dinner at La Playa and the Venetian we’re excellent
Would definitely recommend our teenagers loved being at the beach for spring break even though the weather was yucky!

Overall very nice. Great location , good mattresses, open workable kitchen, big porch.
Downside was floor had not been washed and we got black feet or black sock bottoms. A dampness in the 2 back bedrooms made clothes in closets feel clammy.

Thank you for staying with us. We do apologize about the floors & dampness, we will address the issue.

We were impressed with our first stay in 171 earlier this year, so we didn't hesitate to stay again. Island Retreat 171 unit is nicely furnished with comfortable beds and living room furniture. The kitchen is well stocked with all the pots and pans, utensils, and small appliances a family needs for making your favorite dishes. Sand toys are available for the kids, and the adults can enjoy the sights and sounds from the wide balcony.
Although some of Island Retreat's condo's are currently under repair from Harvey it did not impact our stay. In fact, having a security guard posted at the entrance provided a little piece of mind. So come and stay, Port A is a terrific vacation!

Manager's Response

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We are so happy to hear that you are repeat guests and enjoy staying at Island Retreat. We hope to have you again soon!

Everyone agreed that this is our new Port A place to stay! Overlooking the gulf from our balcony was sublime, The condo was FULLY furnished, with a kitchen such as we've NEVER experienced. IT was AMAZING. The weather was perfect, the town was recovered from Harvey, and the condo was just right for our family of 10. We had 3 kids and 7 adults, and brought a blow-up bed (we didn't use the sleeper sofa). The DVD was operational, the TVs worked, and the bar was fully stocked (we brought our own). The only negative was the amount of beach trash. There was a big storm before we arrived, so the MOSQUITO population exploded, and we took our car to the beach rather than brave the boardwalk and hoards of pesky biting bugs. Oh, there was no DW detergent so we made a run to the IGA for some... no problem, we are at the BEACH!!

Manager's Response

Hello Scott and Nicki,

Thank you for submitting your review for 171 IR, we could not agree more that the unobstructed views of the beach from the balcony are the best, and the unit is in great shape, sorry to hear about the mosquitos, but glad you made the best of it, we normally have DW liquid in all those units, a small bottle of Palmolive and will make sure it gets put inside for next guest. Come back and see us anytime

Thanks,

We meet our grown children in Port A every year for a family vacation. This is the first time in this particular condo. Our experience here was hands down the best yet! The condo is very spacious and comfortable. The deck across the back is big enough for the whole family with gorgeous ocean views. It was great watching the ships come into port every night. The area of beach this condo adjoins also seems to be a less crowded area as well. The staff at Life in Paradise was the best weve dealt with hands down! Dont hesitate to rent this unit.

Manager's Response

Hello Kayla,

We are glad you enjoyed the property, I think the views from the balcony are some of the best views in Port A, and is spacious enough to relax. we also appreciate your review of our staff, we hope to see you again in the future.

Had the best time. Place was great. View as awesome. I would like to see more beach chairs and a pitcher in the place. I would have brought some from home if I had know there was only 1 chair.

This condo was not only spacious but, beautiful and the balcony was huge! We loved sitting out there with a beverage listening to the music from SandFest. there were plenty of linens and comfy beds. The kitchen was stocked with ever item you could ever need. The only negative about this place was dog upstairs that barked a lot.

Ive rented at least ten places in Port Aransas and this was a good one! I liked how the bedrooms would stay quiet even if some of us were awake in the living areas. The walk to the beach was short.

Very nice and clean. Loved the kitchen. BUT, the beds are probably the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on anywhere, and the pillows are so flat we had to use the couch pillows to put under them to elevate our heads. That is the only negative for this unit. Other than the bed situation, this place is great!

Manager's Response

Dear Cindi

We are very sorry that our pillows were not comfortable.. We try to have a variety of soft and firm pillows throughout the condo as it is so important to get a good night’s sleep. In addition we will put some extra pillows in the closet. Our goal is to maintain our condo like a home away from home. Thank you so much for your input so that we can make adjustments to improve our goal.

Thanks
