Great View of ole Port Aransas

  • 5 of 5

2 bedroom, 2 bath condo right on the water...had a wonderful view of the jetty and small marina and swimming pool on site...property has two balconies overlooking the water...we could watch each other fish from the small pier and docks located on the marina...many eating establishments within walking distance (we ate at FINS...sits right on the big marina and watched the Pirate Ship debark)...just a 2 minute drive to the beach, ocean and end of the jetty...from the balconies, we watched dolphins play all day and ships maneuver in and out...condo had everything one needs...cable TV with ALL the channels...can cook your own meals...stove, refrigerator, pantry, and more than enough utensils...A/C worked great...beds were nice as were all the furnishings...Trey even throws in board games, Netflix and water toys...only took us 2-3 minutes drive to get to heart of town....takes about 5-7 minutes to get to Palmilla Beach Resort...really nice links style golf course...greens were in good shape...Black Marlin has wonderful food...we stayed for lunch after golf and really enjoyed it....in our opinion, you can't go wrong with the Ripple place at Bay Tree. We were a family of 4 with two teenage boys...also, you can pay a fee for boat storage and dock in marina during your stay. Check in was easy and fast as was the checkout. We had a great time!

Extremely clean condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great fishing from the pier! We spent 10 nights and had everything we needed. We had 2 covered parking spots and the condo is fully stocked with everything we didn't even think we would need until we needed it. The spiral staircase was fine for our family however our children are older. We will definitely be back!

We will definitely be back to this one!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the privilege of staying in this condo a few nights. I wish we could have stayed longer! It was super cute with fantastic views of the channel, boats and pool all in one. The location is great too. We actually walked to breakfast one morning and to dinner another night. It has two covered parking spaces dedicated to this unit so it was nice to be out of the hot sun. Our daughter loved her beach themed room and fishing at the pier. I've stayed at many places in Port A over the years. We are so happy that we found this one. We will be back hopefully sooner than later!

Great location and VERY clean condo but the layout is terrible! We would not stay here again.

  • 2 of 5

This condo location was great with a view of the shipping channel BUT I should have read the description better so it was totally my fault and also "beggars can't be choosers" when it comes to last minute holiday rentals! We weren't in the condo much except to sleep so it was ok for us but renters need to be aware that both bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are a tiny (as in very narrow) and basically completely vertical (like a corkscrew ladder!) spiral staircase. Very, very difficult to take even a smaller-sized suitcase upstairs and bring it back down when leaving. This would be a terrible rental for a family with young children or senior adults! We were a group of two 60-ish couples and it was ok.....we just really tried to consolidate our trips upstairs and be VERY careful! The hot water tank is extremely small so hot water upstairs ran out quickly and there was NEVER any hot water in the downstairs shower (even when it was the first and only thing using hot water) Downstairs bathroom is literally separated from the sofa in the living room by a curtain so there is no privacy at all. There is a door you can close for the toilet and shower area if you can manage to shut it because of the tight space but that area is TINY and if you are at all claustrophobic (like me) you won't be able to close it. On the PLUS side, the condo was VERY, VERY clean and quiet and Debbie in the office was very welcoming.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. You are correct in that all two bedroom condos at this property have a spiral staircase. It is a standard width spiral staircase. Both bedrooms are upstairs with the living space is downstairs making it quiet in the morning for those that are sleeping while those awake may want to start their coffee or talk downstairs. As the owners of the condo, we actually have small children. Our daughter is 3 and has walked those stairs for the last 6 months on her own. Our parents who are in their 70’s come with us sometimes and have never had an issue. We also have had many repeat Winter Texas who are retirees stay in our condo for months at a time. If you do have trouble with stairs (or claustrophobia which you mentioned and sounds severe) then you may require a wider, larger staircase. There is another set of stairs outside on the front that is extra wide and not spiral. It will lead you from the main floor to the upper floor that has the bedrooms. I’m glad to hear the place was clean and quiet. I agree our property manager, Debbie is great!

Entire Property Needs a Facelift

  • 2 of 5

For the prices they charge, you would expect the place to be quite a bit nicer. Very much in need of an investment if they want to be able to keep up with growth on the island, or cut prices commensurate with what the current state of the property offers. Also, the whole wrist band thing is silly. Kids didn't know any different but for what we were charged per night, my well traveled wife and I did. With that said, our unit was clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback regarding the wristbands. I do know that the wristbands are in place to keep the pool, pier and private boat slips exclusive to guests staying at Bay Tree. Most other properties on the island that don’t have this process in place and they have overcrowded pools. Our property is only one of two properties on the island with a private fishing pier. Many people that stay at our complex (including us) love fishing or watching dolphins right from the pier. We are also the ONLY property on the island with private, rentable boat slips. Our property manager and security is great about ensuring only guests of Bay Tree with wristbands are using these amazing and very unique amenities. I’m glad to hear you were happy with our condo and it was clean and comfortable. The views from our balconies are beautiful! We are actually adding more photos to our posting soon to better reflect the amazing views! I will call you tomorrow to hear specific feedback on what the property itself could do to make it a 5 star property
