"Fantastic Location
Absolutely the best location directly on the beach! Our family had such a great time and will definitely be back!"
Mar 30, 2024 - William H., Round Rock, TX

"Best beach house ever !!!!!!
We came for my daughter’s 15th birthday and have used port a escapes many times and we love using them but this particular beach house was the best one yet we will definitely be using it again!!! "
Sep 28, 2023 - Sharla T., Luling, TX

"2nd trip to Tito's and we will be back!
You can't get a better location on the beach than this property. 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths and wrap around deck make this the best vacay TX spot ever. Do not come expecting a 5 star resort, if so, this is not your place. If you want a TX beach, relaxed mode and waves at your balcony, come here. Beds were clean, towels clean, sand on floor - but it was mopped. We will be back again! When staying at this property, expect and older floor plan which is super unique (in my opinion LOVE it) but also expect outdated furniture and a kitchen that lacks modern kitchenware and no salt/pepper, wrap, etc provided. Kitchen utensils are minimal, BUT it is so worth staying at Tito's because the view is 1000000% worth the money! Life is short. Book this place and if you are a TX person, you won't be unsatisfied!"

"Amazing getaway!
We had such a wonderful time at this property. The views are amazing, the house is unique and inviting. Can’t wait to go back again!"
Sep 07, 2023 - Marleyna D., San Antonio, TX

"Finally I got this Beach House
Great location & beach house. My out of town company from Albuquerque & I from Austin enjoyed every bit of our vacation.

I would suggest letting people know all the items in the kitchen so they don't have to bring their entire kitchen with them. So many utensils, cookware, pots, pans were there. The washer & dryer are in room by garage along with beach toys & boards.

The ice maker wasn't working & fridge kept leaking all over floor which was a safety hazard for us. Hopefully it was fixed after we left.

The nicest restroom at the top wasn't stocked like the rest were with small welcome items. I thought that was weird since its the master & best restroom.

But overall, loved the house. Worth every penny & perfect for 6 adults. So many laughs & memories we made here."

"Cockroaches, spiders, and mice. Oh My!
We were very excited to stay at this property given the location right on the beach. However, we quickly realized, the location and the views were the only positive aspects of this house. On the first morning after our arrival, we were greeted by a large cockroach on the wall and on 3 subsequent mornings were also visited by cockroaches. We had several spiders hanging from a bathroom vent and a mouse dropping was found on the kitchen counter.

The overall condition of the house was poor. Upon arrival, my daughter found food left on a windowsill in a bedroom. The furniture was shabby and falling apart (I.e. lamp shade ink guest bedroom. The living room was small with seating that can only fit 4-5 comfortably, which left others in our group unable to socialize in the same area. The doors to the deck do not have proper working locks and are secured only by wood blocks.

The smoke alarm did not have a battery in it, which is against Texas Law for rentals. We requested property management to come and place a new battery. While they did arrive promptly upon our request, the smoke detector started beeping within an hour. A follow-up request was made to address this issue; however, there was no response from management, One morning we had a knock on the door around 9am and it was the management company asking to come in to replace the air filters because it was “air filter day”. I don’t feel this was professional and these type of routine property management services should be addressed at times when the property is vacant and in-between renters.

While the location and ocean views were great, we were ultimately very dissatisfied with this property and caution those who are considering staying at this house.
Aug 13, 2023 - , Bulverde, TX

Got this house for a intimate ceremony. Needless to say, we were astonished! Balcony and window views are amazing! Chairs outside did not get hot even with sunbathing all day.
Extremely small mishaps, like the cable on TV not working, but we were at the beach on vacation, so was our least concern to report to get fixed. For anyone concerned about little critters, like bugs, I only seen one but was dying due to the property being maintained/exterminated well.
Ideal location- to not only the beach but to Port Aransas and Padre.
Any time that I had questions or concerns before arrival, I would call and speak with someone immediately and they were also so helpful and nice to us.
Wonderful and beautiful house that I would love to return back to. Would definitely recommend the stay! "
Jun 20, 2023 - Jessica D., Gilmer, TX

"Location, Location, Location!
Tita's Sandcastle is positively the best beach location to stay at. The house hosts gorgeous views of the beach and has all the amenities you'll need to enjoy the island life. We will be back with our grandkids next trip! "
Sep 25, 2022 - Darla S., Wimberley, TX

"Great Location
Great location, home and furnishings could use a little updating. Couch has seen it’s better days, not very comfortable, ice maker didn’t work, tiles cracked in a few places, floor in upstairs bedroom had several “soft spots” that made you feel like you were falling try a hole, no cover on one of the bedroom windows which woke you up when daylight hit. But if you can over look those kind of things the location is great"
Sep 24, 2022 - , Alvord, TX

"Great location but disappointing
This house needs a lot of attention. Starting with the keypad at the entrance door. The door is sticky or the lock is messed up somehow. Once we managed to open the door, we decided never to lock it again.
Inside: dirty pullout sofa. Sticky, shoddy doors everywhere. Nice living space on main floor. Great decks. However the outdoor furniture is either broken, or full of bird poop. Gross.
The downstairs bedroom cannot be accessed from inside. No point in going there anyways, it clearly flooded as it smells of mold. I wouldn’t want to sleep there. Again, gross.
Upstairs master is nice, beds are comfortable but what h fir the uneven floor, it feels like you may fall through. Again, shoddy construction.
Don’t try to wash towels and such, the dryer dries absolutely nothing.
Dishwasher not giving out clean dishes either.
Again, this house needs better attention.
Great location right on the beach makes up for it.
Too pricey for what it is, will not rent this unit again.

"Beautiful view, not the best house
The house needs serious TLC. The floors are soft on many locations, the oven cooks uneven, the stove top coils are loose, the upstairs bathroom doesn't get hot water. The hallway downstairs bathroom is so small you can barely move inside of it. The downstairs apartment is full of mold all over the ceiling and it smells musty. The mattresses where so uncomfortable, I slept on the floor half of my stay so I didn't have a spring in my back. The fridge smelled so bad of fish that even after wiping it down with bleach I had to go and buy, everything we put inside smelled like fish too. The dryer overheats and takes 4 cycles to dry a load of laundry. No car beach access anywhere near the neighborhood, just the walk over access. The neighborhood pool was filthy our entire stay. No shade by pool area, so you just sit out there and bake in the sun.fornthe amount we paid fornthe house, I'd expect a lot more. I paid a fraction of the price for my home I stayed in last month is puerto rico, and it was immaculate. The views are beautiful from the deck though, and they had an ample amount of dishes in kitchen."

"Anniversary Trip
My husband and I wanted traveled from Michigan with our two daughters to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. My parents joined us for the fun. The house was perfect for all of us and has east access to the beach. We had a great time! "
Jul 11, 2022 - Jennifer S., Imlay City, MI

"Very nice = Titas Sandcastle LC17
Lots of room, clean and easy access to the beach. Would definitely stay here again."
Jul 07, 2022 - Ferd K., San Angelo, TX

"What a relaxing time!
The house is very conveniently located steps away from the beach. It was well stocked with necessities such a trash bags, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, towels, etc
We will definitely be returning to Tita’s Sandcastle in the near future. "

Front row ocean view. "

"Holiday Escape
Just what I needed, great home in a great location. "
Dec 11, 2021 - , Arlington, TX

It was so perfect! We loved the house and the location could not be beat. We were literally right on the beach. The beach was amazing!! It was so nice that our son and daughter in law were able to bring their dog! Can't wait to go back. "
Nov 01, 2021 - Candace O., Fort Worth, TX

"Port A
Overall. Good, the location and view were the best. House could be cleaner, could use paint on kitchen and bathroom cabinets. I wish they had an elevator and wish the washer and dryer were in the house not in the garage. Had dry clothes out of the dryer but they got wet from the rain trying to get back in the house. They need a broom closet, the maid left the broom/ mop in the corner by the sliding glass door by the kitchen table. "

"Great ��
Just like the pictures ☺️"
Sep 11, 2021 - Catherine P., Bandera, TX

"Beautiful location, terrible bug problem
Absolutely amazing views and location. Management company very responsive. Home was not thoroughly cleaned beforehand. They definitely have a bug problem. We had over a dozen roaches spread out in the kitchen, couch, and bathrooms. You know its a problem when two roaches popped out of the toaster in the kitchen."
Aug 22, 2021 - Michael T., Sachse, TX

"Port Aransas Adventure
The best location in the Colony and probably one of the best on the island.
The condition of the property was very good. The house was clean and well furnished. The family wants to return again soon."
Aug 18, 2021 - , Alba, TX

"Amazing family vacation
We enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. We spent many hours on the deck enjoying the view. There was an issue with dryer, but it was fixed very promptly. We will definitely be back next summer!"
Jul 19, 2021 - Shanna R., Sadler, TX

"Great Getaway
The house was in a good location to the beach & ours was right next to the boardwalk so that was nice. The bedrooms we great to accommodate all 10 of us. We couldn’t find any trash bags so we had to go buy some & the dumpsters are far from the house. The house was clean and the deck area was nice to sit on in the evenings. The staff was amazing to talk to, very friendly and helpful. Overall a great getaway! "

"Titas Sandcastle LC17 Easter 2021
Great stay, unfortunately the down stairs room had fleas, and was for us unusable this stay. Pest control did come while we were there. We have been fortunate to be able to book this unit several times before (dog friendly and we bring the pooches; this was the first major issue we encountered. Wonderful location several times before, love the view from the patio. We will be back!"
Apr 13, 2021 - Jorg S., Austin, TX

"Location is the only thing this house has
Floors were so dirty we had buy a mop to clean it . Dishwasher was filthy . The stove is so old and one burner was pulled out and not working. Not recommend for family with small kids as the sunken family room had very bad stairs. Grill was big enough for 2 hamburgers. Dryer took forever to dry small batch of clothes."
Apr 07, 2021 - , Austin, TX

"Not impressed
We were right on the water so the location was perfect! Unfortunately, the condition of the property was very poor. The first thing that I noticed was a fine grit on the kitchen countertops that we had to wipe down when we arrived. We then had to call for maintenance to repair the pantry door because the upper hinge was pulled from the door frame. This took two days to repair. On our second day we had to have maintenance come out again because we could not lock our sliding doors on the main level. Maintenance was able to fix one of the sliding doors but unable to fix the second. We will not be returning to Port A!"
Apr 05, 2021 - Jim D., Eden Prairie, MN

"The Perfect Beach House!
This beach house is a dream! Location to the beach, layout of the house, cleanliness, ease of management. Will definitely rent again! "
Mar 30, 2021 - Rhonda G., Spicewood, Texas

"Beach Escape
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and loved being so close to the ocean waves. The house was a great home base as we are two families traveling together. We enjoyed playing games at the kitchen table with the ocean in view. There were plenty of places to sleep comfortably. The downstairs bedroom was a nice escape where the kids felt like they had their own little apartment. The house had everything we needed. There were a few maintenance items such as broken wheel on outdoor chaise lounge, sliding door was a bit wobbly, can opener was subpar, and the heat did not seem to work. We were here for NYE and had some chilly nights. But all in all we were happy with our stay here. "
Jan 18, 2021 - Rachel S., Lucas, TX

"Excellent location
The location was the best highlight. The master bathroom renovation was a nice surprise... would love to have soft pillows though... the pillows in all rooms were very hard!"
Nov 03, 2020 - Chandroutie L., Pittsburg , KS

"We'd stay here again in a heartbeat
As usual (Property Management) did not disappoint. Titus Sandcastle was exactly as pictured. We had brand new loungers for the deck, and we pretty much lived on them when we weren't in the water or on the beach. The beds were comfty and the brand new master bath was lovely. "
Oct 05, 2020 - , Lakeway, TX

"Best Beach House on the Island
Booking, check in and check out were a breeze! The home was perfectly located and very clean! Enough space to sleep our group with lots of places to hang out and relax. The beds, pillows and couch are especially comfy and the home is comfortable. We especially loved the deck area and spent most of our time there! We will be back again!! Never staying anywhere else! "
Oct 16, 2019 - Leigh H., Mason, Texas

"Not all we hoped for
This was our second year to stay in lost colony although a different property. Love the location and proximity to the beach. The property this year was adequate but not without its issues. We noticed evidence of mold, water leaking from a light fixture, bugs and the property needs major updating. The bottom bedroom was hard to keep cool. "
Aug 13, 2019 - Tommy T., Schertz, Tx

"Geisel vacation
Overall, a very good visit. A couple of minor issues. A leak in the ceiling over the upstairs bed. Maintenance quickly came out and remedied the situation. Item 2 - ice make did not work. Reported upon departure. Item 3 - issue with ants. Sprayed and kept food up. I would highly recommend this property."
Aug 08, 2019 - Chris G., Fort Worth , Texas

"Fourth bedroom did not meet expectations
Excellent location, beautiful view but considering the 4th bedroom too expensive."
Jul 13, 2019 - David G., Waco, Texas

"Great Location!
This house has amazing views and great floor plan but could use some updates and love. We loved how our family each had their own bathroom and the rooms are set up on the main floor for privacy. The master suite upstairs was also private. However the tv wasn’t working and the drain wasn’t working well when showering. There were also a few places on the main floor where it felt like you might fall through the floor. The private apartment on the ground level was great and very private as well but the bathroom was very small. The kitchen was bright and updated, very large fridge! The housekeeping should pay more attention to detail when vacuuming the floors. Overall this is a nice place and you cannot beat the amazing views from the deck and closeness to the beach and beach access. However for the price we paid I was hoping for a lot more. "
Jun 07, 2019 - Dobie F., Wimberley, TX

"Fabulous place for a large family
Well equipped home with plenty of space. Everything functioned properly except the ice maker was frozen. We emptied and reset - within 12 hours we had ice. This was a wonderful home for families and had more than enough space for everyone. Right on the beach! Boardwalk over the dunes just steps away. Awning wasn’t functioning only downfall. Home is a bit dated and needs some repair. Windows were dirty and a bit disappointing. "
Jun 04, 2019 - , San Antonio, TX

"Tita's Sandcastle
Could use some updating. Need more paper products, dish washer detergent and trash bags for ten people staying for a week. Would appreciate inventory of frequently used items like salt, pepper, sugar, spices etc. More hangers in closets."
Mar 18, 2019 - , Grapevine, TX

"Great location !
We really enjoyed our stay. The location is fabulous and the ocean views are so beautiful! We would definitely stay here again. "
Jan 03, 2019 - Denise B., San antonio, TX

"Labor Day Escape
Unit was as described, absolutely right on the beach, very short walk to the boardwalk and down to the surf. Amenities were fine. We had one toilet that kept acting up, and maintenance was a bit remiss in efforts to fix it, but otherwise the unit functioned well. I chalked it up to a very busy holiday weekend. We've been coming to Port A for over 40 years. Tita's was what you would expect from an older property on the island. "
Sep 15, 2018 - Jerry R., FORT WORTH, TX

"Great beach location
Great location!! House is in need of general upkeep but very comfortable for our family. "
Mar 18, 2018 - , Lakewood village, TX

"Perfect Beach Front Escape
Spacious vacation home with nice furnishing and comfortable beds. Plenty of room for a larger group. The house bedrooms are laid out nicely so each room is rather private. Great location for beautiful sunrises and sunsets."
Dec 13, 2017 - Todd D., Lytle, TX

"Right on the beach!
Excellent location if you want to be right on the water. For November, the weather was absolutely gorgeous and my friends and I spent the majority of our time outside on the deck or walking along the beach. The house itself is ok, but a bit over-priced for the condition and no real amenities except for the beach and pool. We had a great time though, which was the main purpose of staying there."
Dec 12, 2017 - , Round Rock, TX

"Great Weeekend
I was worried about the condition of the house after Harvey, but it was in great shape, and my family had a blast. We didn't leave the property all weekend. "

"6th Annual Family Getaway
Nice house with a GREAT location right on the beach. This was our 2nd year in this house and God Willing we will be returning next year. "

"Good Time by the Beach
Best part is the closeness to the beach, can't get any closer! The beach wind coming in at night makes lounging on the deck Heaven. Recommend no more than 8 adults since space is limited. Other than some minor issues due to age of property, we loved it!"
Jul 22, 2017 - JEAN C., GEORGETOWN, Texas

"June's 2017
This was our 4th stay in this home as it is the perfect location overlooking the beach. It is an older home and starting to show some wear and tear but still in pretty good shape. They made some recent upgrades such as a new refrigerator, dishwasher and coffee maker. This is the first time we had an ant problem in the kitchen but management was told and said they would spray. Overall we love the place but they should do some upgrades throughout the house. "
Jun 13, 2017 - Jenny F., San Antonio, Texas

"Family fun
We had three generations of family at the beach this weekend. Everything was great. We had some plumbing problems but a repairman came out right away to fix."
May 24, 2017 - , Austin, Texas

"Fantastic REAL Beachfront getaway!
There are not a lot of places in Port A where you can be steps from the beach and this house is ONE of the few. We love Lost Colony and have stayed in other homes. This was the best so far. Great panoramic views. Clean home. Great Housekeeping. You do need to bring your own, chairs, canopy, toys, beach towels, if you want those items. The staff at (Property Management) is so kind and friendly and informative. Easy check in/out. We are already looking to come back this year...!"

It was great!"
Apr 26, 2017 - , San Antonio, Texas

"What a view!!!
The rental was overall clean. The only issue was the separate room downstairs was not cleaned upon arrival. It was not a problem because we did not need it,so we didn't inform management. The view was spectacular! We didn't want to leave! The only suggestion I have is if you are feeding a crowd bring a large fry pan or a flat griddle as it only has a 9" fry pan. "

"So close to beach u can touch it
We enjoyed r trip to the beach. House was very clean. "
Dec 27, 2016 - Sharon F., Sunnyvale, TX

We have stayed here before and defn will again, BUT there was a HUGE bug problem this time. Rental Office sent someone over to spray but we continued to see HUGE spiders, BIG cockroaches and lots of black bugs??"
Sep 08, 2016 - Kyle S., San Antonio, Texas

"Vacation in Port A
The house was great and the overall experience was exactly what we expected. I would certainly rent this house again. The only negative was we needed cleaning supplies in the kitchen besides dish washing soap. We ran out of the 2 kitchen hand towels very quickly and had to use bathroom hand towels. We needed spray or Clorox wipes for the counters to be able to keep everything clean during our stay. I will add that to my packing list going forward. Other than that we had a great time and house was in a superior location."

Me and my family absolutely loved these homes, i will say though that if you have elderly people with you or anbody that has trouble going up and down stairs this wouldnt be the home for you. Other than that, they are beautiful homes and loved waking up to watch the sunrise every morning."

"Girls' Getaway
Great location. A/C went out but repairman was there without 30 minutes. The refrigerator did not work well - we had to use the freezer to chill our water. Overall, great place to stay.

"Magee Reunion
We have a lot of cherished memories in this home. You can not beat the location. Things have been relatively unchanged. However, the new windows and doors are a great improvement."

"Great Property
Great property, perfect for a couple families (we had 6 adults and 2 kids). The 4th bedroom is actually a separate apartment below the balcony, I wish that had been more clear in the listing. We had a great time! "

"Relaxing Christmad Getaway
Our family enjoyed a very relaxing vacation at Tita's Sandcastle, the house was great and the location is right on the beach! I recommend this rental to anyone looking to enjoy Port Aransas, the staff at (Property Management) were very friendly and even coordinated a fishing trip for our group. If your looking for something very nic and right on the beach this is the place!"

"Port A Perfecto!!!!
We cant wait to go back, it was VERY close to the beach as advertised!
We would love some hooks in the bathrooms to hang robes, pj's, anything!!! And the shower/tub on the third floor was pretty weird set up. Many Thanks for allowing our sweet pups to come along (or frankly we wouldn't have gone on this trip.) We'll DEFN be back."

"The Thomas Family Summer Vacation
Each summer we look forward to our annual stay at Lost Colony in Tita's Sandcastle #17. It is the condo closest to the water at Lost Colony.We have been coming to Lost Colony for some years now since our grandchildren were babies and they are now teenagers. The youngest is almost five and he was upset when we left the condo as he had such a great time. The unit is perfect for our size family. We look forward to our stay there every summer.

"Family Beach Trip
Our 2nd time to stay at Tita's. Wonderful, convenient and comfortable beach house. Three generations had a great time and brought away lots of wonderful memories to cherish. Thanks so much!"

"Great Location
This house has a great location. It is literally right on the beach. Not separated by dunes, etc. It's a bit older and although it was very clean, the house is showing a bit of wear and tear. Especially the small downstairs bedroom that is separate from the rest of the house. And if you don't like stairs this is not for you. Very steep stairs up to master and stairs down into the sunken living area as well. But we enjoyed our stay, mostly due to the directly on the beach location."

"Spring break w the Family!
As always, this house was fabulous! The location cannot be beat. The dining room table is perfect for playing games and group meals. This house is facilitates entertaining and large groups."

"Tita's Sandcastle
We had a wonderful time! The cottage has been nicely renovated since our last stay and it's the perfect place for a family vacation....right on the ocean, with gorgeous views from most bedrooms, comfortable beds, spacious communal areas, fully stocked kitchen, 4 bathrooms and bedrooms, plus a sleeper couch.

"Lost Colony #17
Was our 4th time at this home. Great location and vacation."
Oct 29, 2014 - Sharon B., Leander, Tx

Our rental house was at a beautiful location. RIGHT ON THE BEACH (17LC)! And that is basically what I paid for. The house is very, very dated inside (others have been completely renovated)completely wood on ceilings and walls from the 70's or 80's. We had visitors as well, such as 3 giant spiders and several cockroaches falling out of the AC vents. It was clean enough at first look, but the nooks and crannies were not. For the amount or $$ per night ($600+) I just wish it was a little more updated and clean. But as I said you are paying for location. We also had to purchase a can opener as there wasn't one in the kitchen. The house is large and looks great on the outside. We've vacationed in the two next door as well (5LC and 6LC - RIGHT ONE THE BEACH), they are completely updated now and are $700-$800 per night. Now that I know those are completely updated and same location (right on the beach)that is where I will rent next time."

"Great Rental
I've never gotten to stay that close to the water on Port A. It was great! Beautiful home, with everything we needed to be comfortable. No complaints. Great trip. "

"Tit's sandcastle
The location was the best. The house was not, everything was dirty from kitchen cabinets to rust on the fridge and dirty bathrooms:(

"A wonderful place
Love the house it was perfect for our holiday. We will be back."
Jan 17, 2014 - Paula G., New Braunfels, Texas

Disappointed overall. This property is rented often at a high rate which should allow for some investment back into ammentities and extras available. It appears that little no money goes back into the house. Bedding beds blankets grill beach gear extras all need an investment. Little to greedy by owner for such a premium price paid. Location is good to beach but far from stores. Mgmt co not overly helpful. It was a fine start for our family but we will not be back unless it is upgraded significantly. "

"Great Stay
My first time ever staying in these beautiful coast view condos. I loved the scenery. Unit 17 is the best one to stay in. The inside of the condo is well decorated. "

Great view, large deck, lots of room and beautiful sunrises. By far, the best location and beach access on Mustang Island! It will be our annual summer destination."

"Contentment by The Sea
Overall a wonderful experience. Patrick at Porta Escapes made the difference. Great businessman. Couldn't use one room...toxic oder....I'm sure no one else will experience this. Patrick will see to it. Broken ice maker. There were 9 of us. Had to buy paper products, and garbage bags. Ad states 11 can be accomidated. Great ocean view. Very nice home. Good furnishings. Hard and old mattresses. We'd go again anyway! And stay in the same house....Thanks Patrick!"

"Good for location
This house is a great rental if you are looking for location only . The house has been updated with new decking and siding . The first thing we noticed was the key didnt work . I quickly called them at 4:50 ( they close at 5) they were nice to bring us a key on their way home . When we got inside we started noticing roaches , ants and spiders . There were a few roaches in the main house but in the room off the beach they were crawling out of the fan plate on the ceiling . At one time my daughter had one crawl on her arm . The last day we were there we noticed our dog was covered in fleas , ugh !
The kitchen was not stocked with basic stables . For example , no salt and pepper , sugar , trash bags , coffee filters or hand soap . There was not a toaster and the ice maker does not function .
So , if you are looking for a place to stay based only on location this is the place for you . If you think 600.00 a night should provide basic amenities and be bug free then you would not be happy staying here . "

"Great getaway
We have stayed at LC 3 times and this rental is the best. Updated bathrooms and kitchen. One suggestion would be helpful to stock a few trash bags, salt and pepper and laundry detergent just to start people out. These are things you forget to bring!! Loved it, will go again next year."

"Awesome beach house
Perfect location. Clean and comfortable. "
Jun 13, 2012 - Millie L., Caldwell, TX

It was the ultimate family vacation spot. We could not have enjoyed the beach more; the weather was perfect the whole time (maybe little windy a couple of days) but, overall was just great. Grandsons, ages 6 & 10, could not have enjoyed the sand/waves/gulls/sand crabs/etc more. Even though it was an expensive vacation for us, the house was comfortable for all and the views fantastic all the time. Plenty of hot water and the AC worked great. We feel blessed to have had this, probably once in a lifetime, wonderful family adventure. We will relive the memories many times from our photos. Thanks. enjoy the journey, the alleys"

"Port A weekend get-away
Beautiful view and beach access. There was abundant room so all were comfortable. The kitchen was spacious and complete with enough pots, pans, and utencils for cooking and socializing. "

"Spring Break 2012
We shared the home with another family. Having 4br/4ba was perfect for us. The boys (18 and 13) loved the lower level bedroom with it's separate entrance, but I would think anyone with very young children could find that room not working very well. The location was absolutely perfect and lived up to our expectations in every way"

"Our beach trip
Once again we had a wonderful stay at #17 Lost Colony. The location and views are amazing. House was comfortable for our group of 5. Dishwasher was broken when we arrived, wireless internet did not work and 4th bedroom & bath had no window coverings so we could not use them."
