Nice place but lots of negatives
Review by Sheena P.
We were excited when we got there because the place looked nice but there were several things that troubled us that took away from our pleasure and relaxation:1) The fridge did not cool till end of day causing much of our food to spoil. 2) The entry door was very difficult to lock. It took multiple attempts to lock the door each time before it would lock. One had to giggle the handle a lot before it would lock from the inside. From the outside it would take numerous attempts to try to get the key to engage locking. Also, it needs a deadbolt or a chain door lock to prevent a child from opening door at night and wandering off. 3) The water in the main bathroom shower stunk like sulphur, was awful. 4) The worst part was the noise from the drilling that occurred for all the days we were there just outside the entry door. The rails were being installed and the workmen were noisy themselves with music and chatter that woke me up each morning, then the drilling persisted all day giving us a headache. It was so loud. 5) The TV was hard to figure out and the DVD player did not work. So, all in all we had a very frustrating stay at the Aransas Princess and felt we did not get any value for our stay because the experience was so torturous. After the discount we wound up paying about $800 for the two night stay after a discount was granted. We could have been in a peaceful and trouble free place very easily for such a high price. We could not enjoy the views or walking on the side where there were no rails because they had temporary structures right outside the entry door ..all the way. We had to park the luggage cart far away.

Perfect condo for family of 4 for short stay. Master bath and kitchen had some nice updates. The kitchen has both a traditional and Keurig coffee maker, which is nice. The blinds covering the full length windows were a bit troublesome. They like to fall off, and it can be difficult to position them to keep the sun out of the master bedroom in the morning. The walk to the beach via the boardwalk was easy, and we loved that there were two pools to choose from. Be aware that there are no grills available on the property's common areas, and they say that they are not allowed on the balconies. The complex is way down at the end of 11th street, but we didn't mind the drive to and from town in our golf cart in the evenings. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent here again.

CONDO 602 NEEDS ATTENTION!
Review by Robert H.
This was a very nice condo (clean); however, a lot of items needed to be fixed. Blinds in the Master Bedroom wouldn't close; light over the sink didn't work; leak in bathroom (Master Bedroom); sliding door to patio would not lock; router for internet not plugged in for WiFi; remote control for TV needed batteries, etc. All of these items should have been fixed and checked before we entered the condo. The management was courteous and efficient while we were there but when you're on vacation one shouldn't have to contact the office every day.
