  Family of 10
We had a great time! The house house was everything we were looking for and more. It is in a great location, clean, full kitchen, some grass area in the back for my littles to play, shower to rinse of outside, washer/dryer, and central air( that actually works great, and is much needed in this crazy TX heat). We will definately be coming back to stay again and look forward to many more memories with my family.

  The Perfect Stay at Port A
We had never rented in Port A before and weren't quite sure what to expect. The photos are nice to look at as a preview, but they don't do justice to the place. We found this house to be the right size for all of us. Not only could we disperse for sleeping, but there was plenty of living and dining space. And we were nicely surprised to see a kitchen stocked with so many utensils, etc. It was so clean when we walked in with great views and proximity to everything-just like being at a fancy resort. Although we had issues with the TV, I'm glad that Turnkey provided us with assistance during the week. I plan to spend time on the coast again and will go through Airbnb and Turnkey!

  Port A Winter Beach Trip
Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay at this home in Port A around Christmas! It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and a great location. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed. It is only a short walk to beach.

Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay at this home In Port A for Thanksgiving! It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and a great location. The kitchen was stocked with all we needed to make a Thanksgiving meal away from home (after a trip to local grocery store for food, of course :)).

  Great near the beach rental...
Property is located within a couple minutes of the beach, restaurants, and harbor. Great layout for multiple families with kids as it sleeps a dozen or more. A few too many steps for older folks. Well equipped house, several TV's for those who don't like the beach. Great kitchen layout...Overall, a very nice property for the money.

  Great beach getaway
What a great place for our two trip with two families (6 kids total). The bunkroom was so fun the kids, the outdoor amentities were great (wraparound deck with comfy furniture, roof top deck, and downstairs patio). The new outdoor shower with hot water was a very nice touch! There are two different sizes of charcoal grills which were nice - just have to be prepared for charcoal and not gas. Our only complaint was the fridge - it did not get very cold. The freezer worked great, but we needed to use coolers with ice for the drinks we watned to stay really nice and cold. Even so, we will definitely come back. Was a great location and house for our family vaction.

House was fantastic! We were more than comfortable with 2 families (4 adults, 5 kids & our dog). The house was exactly like the pictures, and more than spacious! My only suggestions to make it better would be to update the washer & dryer (they are extremely noisy) and possibly look into getting the water pressure improved in the master bathroom. All in all though, we had a fabulous time during our stay and the house made it even better with the amount of room it offers. We would definitely stay there again, thank you so much!

  overall pretty good
First of all the property was very clean. We are avid vacation home renters and this place was at the top of our list for cleanliness. The 'updates' were baths (nice and open) , new floor etc. Maybe a new fridge. The decorating was nice and beachy. The kids loved the bunk beds. Decent location, neighbors were very nice. Issues: Turnkey kept sending me an app to open so I could get the combo # for the door, even though I had explained that the app was not opening on my phone. I was able to get help pretty quickly but it took a few times for them to get it right. The dryer squealed like a cat was inside. The microwave was tilted forward and felt like it could slide out at any time. Had to move 2 wooden deck chairs to the side because they were broken, one I sat in and immediately fell back and hit the railing with my head. To go to the beach you have to go back up to the main street and then around and walk to the beach.

  Great place, very comfortable spacious
What a great house! We were very comfortable with 2 families (4 adults and 3 kids). The weather was unfortunately rainy most of our stay, which meant we spent a lot of time in the rental. The kids could utilize the outdoor space for running around to get their energy out as well as the cute kids room. The place was well stocked with all the necessary kitchen items. The decor was beautiful and cozy. The only downside was the walk to the beach, but it was not a big deal--basically a walk around the block. With wet cold kids it proved to be difficult. We would stay there again! Thank you!

  FANTASTIC!!!! Great Place/Great Weekend!
I had my daughters' 21st birthday celebration and several of her friends for the weekend. It was perfect!! The accommodations were super, big living room, kitchen and kitchen table. Not to mention the patio and star gazer deck!! We would rent this house again, super clean and convenient. The only draw back was limited parking but we made it work. Thanks to Bron Golf Carts and That Takes the Cake for making our celebration complete!

  "Best Vacation Ever!" said my Granddaughter
Our first TurnKey Vacation. We were 4 adults and 5 children. The sleeping arrangements were wonderful. Loved having 3 baths, washer and dryer, BBQ grill, dishes, utensils, pots & pans.. we cooked and ate in and had everything we needed.
The AC went out our first night. I got a quick response from TurnKey and they had it fixed by the mid-afternoon. Yea!! Our first evening we had a fabulous breeze and enjoyed the outside wrap around patio deck and catwalk views were beautiful. But the following day was very hot with no breeze. So we were grateful to have the AC fixed and the house comfortable again. We hope to return and rent this property again next summer.
I was somewhat surprised with the outside area of the house, especially the ground floor. There is an uneven area in the walkway where my daughter fell and twisted her ankle. It has been a month now and she still hurts and the ankle is still swollen. I did report this and a repairman put in a motion light, but even with the light, it is difficult to see after the sun goes down. There was trash, old rusted chairs and old broken plastic chairs at the gate, and what appeared to be pieces of tin. Even the TurnKey rep was surprised when she saw this.(Hopefully it was cleaned up for the next guests.) The patio furniture on the deck was old and the wicker breaking and paint cracking. The cushions are old and in poor condition, as well. The screening in the roof of the patio is showing wear. There are so many beautifully painted homes in the area and from the outside the home is not attractive at all. It certainly does not reflect the beauty of the inside of the home.

  Fun and comfortable beach house
Our group of 5 adults and two kids had an excellent time at this house. The kids loved the bunk beds, all the rooms were very nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. It was clean and having three bathroom was great. We liked the outdoor shower too. The decks including the rooftop deck were wonderful for sunsets. Overall, this house was a great fit for our family. There were less expensive homes available, but it seems like this place is worth the money. And we were glad to be able to bring our dogs.

  Great place, needs a little work!
The house is great. It has a great setup as far as the room situation goes. We had 8 people (4 adults, 4 kids) stay in the house very comfortably. The house does need some attention however. There are some plumbing issues with the kitchen sink (faucet is loose), and the shower head upstairs (hangs at funny angle and wont stay up). The cleanliness was average (hair in the shower)and some more attention by the cleaning crews would probably serve the place well. We were supposed to get into the house at 3 but the cleaning crews weren't done until 4:30. They want you to put towels in the laundry when you leave and start a load, but they don't provide any soap to make that happen. The driveway to the home is extremely steep and there is parking for two cars only, but that is only minor issue.

The house AC works great, hot water for showers is good, appliances all work and there are plenty of places to sit and hang out inside and out.

The rental service company was awesome to work with. The location is extremely convenient to the beach and near the town for eating. I would recommend this property if they spent a few dollars on some minor repairs and had the cleaning crews make sure the property was right.

Thank you for staying with us and we appreciate the feedback. There are some very good points raised as it sounds like the cleaners rushed their jobs. Laundry soap is an amenity that is supposed to be left in the home (starting a load of towels is a request, not a must, something we do request from guests). We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the stay and the location. Hopefully you had some good beach days in while you were there. Thank you again for staying and we hope we can welcome you back for a future visit ~ Turnkey VR
  Home Away From Home Beach House
This beach house was perfect. We absolutely loved the layout. It was so cozy and comfortable. The updates the owners did are beautiful. They provide all the necessities you would need, which is so nice. The view beautiful. The outdoor shower was a wonderful amenity that proved to be very useful. This was our first time to Port A and I must say we loved it. Not over crowded, small town feel, and still so many things to do. The only thing that was a negative was that the house is said to be only a 2 minute walk to the beach. It's not. The house is on a culdesac. You cannot walk through the back of the property; you must walk back to the main road to the neighboring street and take that directly to the beach. It's more of a 15 minute walk. Not a big deal, but definitely more than 2 minutes. Other than that we had a perfect stay in Port A! We would definitely rent this home again.

  Great place!
I rented this house for a trip for myself and my employees - 7 ladies. The house was just as pictured! It was cute, comfortable, clean and very relaxing! just how I would have a house of my own for guests. There was plenty of space for us to spread out and the common area was big enough for us all to hang out together to cook and play cards ect.

We had an amazing time. The beach is very close as it town for eating and shopping.

We look forward to visiting again!
