Our group has stayed at a Silver Sands property several times. We meet for Sandfest every year to enjoy the fun of being together since we live in different locations from Fort Worth to South Texas.
We walk on the beach,laugh,shop,laugh, cook,laugh, eat,laugh, play board/card games, watch sand sculptures being built, enjoy the music,laugh, play shuffleboard, and laugh some more. This house was in a great location and accommodated our party of 15 very well. Great views, lots of bedrooms and connected bathrooms, and a nice pool area. So much fun!

Bella Vista met and exceeded expectations overall. We hosted Thanksgiving for 16 (10 adults, 6 kids), 12 from out of town. The home is beautiful, very clean, well maintained and accommodated all of us very comfortably. The 6 individual bed/bath were very spacious and comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the bunk room. We enjoyed the pool and grilling on the patio. The shuffleboard table was enjoyed by all. The third floor kitchen, dining and living room was very accommodating with fantastic views. The beach is just a short walk along a well maintained boardwalk. We really enjoyed the Red Dragon Pirate Cruise at sunset and highly recommend it for anyone with kids. We also enjoyed a bonfire on the beach which was a perfect way to wind down after our Thanksgiving feast. Don't worry about getting out of shape staying here as you will be a super stair climber by the time you leave:) The folks at Silversands prop. management provided good service and were very nice to work with prior to and during our stay.

Recommendations for owner/prop. manager:
Fix faulty doorknobs on 1st and 3rd floor outside doors. Supply an electric hand mixer in kitchen. Provide travel size soap, shampoo and lotion in bathrooms. Shuffleboard table needs leveling and extra powder/wax available and some chalk for the chalkboard. A service elevator would be an outstanding addition for packing in/out of the third floor kitchen.
Manager response on 2017-01-09 - Response from Silver Sands Vacation Rentals
Mr. Sawyer , We are happy to hear your Thanksgiving went well. Upon reading your review , I brought your request to the management and wanted to let you know they have been addressed. If we can be of any service to you on your next vacation please let us know. Once again I apologize to you for the door problems , dance wax for the shuffle board , travel size toiletries and hand mixer. Thank you so much for vacationing at one of our properties. Denise

This house is perfect for large group of family and friends. The pool is a bonus and the house is just steps from the beach. I love the layout of the house, bottom floor is perfect for kids with a bunk room and bonus area, and two master suites. Second floor has four master suites, two with a private balcony and laundry area. Wall to wall windows on the top floor with a balcony provides ocean views. The house could not have been more perfect!
Recommendation: The house needs more towels. Each room only had 3 bath towels, 1 hand towel and 1 wash cloth. With four kids in the bunk room, it was not enough. Some of the cooking pans need to be replaced. Other than that, there was everything we needed.

House is in a great location but some conditions were disappointing. There are very few cooking utensils, in particular pots and pans. Also, the outside grill was a mess and was replaced with a very small propane cooker. For a house that sleeps 16 the propane grill is vastly undersized.

Pros: Every bedroom had a king bed with ensuite bathroom. Huge great room that could accommodate our family reunion. Very centrally located, close to beach. Nice pool. A/C worked great. Perfect beach-y decor.

Cons: For a home of this size and price, the kitchen was woefully undersupplied. (example, no kitchen linens, kitchen soap, staples, cooking bowls/supplies, etc. Really? we have to buy salt and sugar? The owner should recognize there will be large groups that want to cook. Please outfit the kitchen more completely.

Also, the pool was an afterthought to the house. You have to walk outside the property and around to the pool area, no direct connection from the house. You can't even open a kitchen window to call down there. Maybe they are all this way but it was very odd.

That said, its a million-dollar home. The kids loved the shuffle board game, great decks with awesome views. It's a great house that could be even better.

We were pleased with the fact that this house was large enough for our big family. After reading previous reviews, we knew to take kitchen towels, soap, and paper products for our use. We made do with the utensils and pots and pans provided but expected more variety and number of some of the items. Also with prior warning, we were expecting the very small grill that is the substitute for the larger, built in grill that has deteriorated. For the price paid, one could expect that this built in grill would be replaced with a comparable one that is clean and functional. Additionally, we did find that a couple of the ceiling fans in bedrooms were not working and shelving from the refrigerator door was found broken and placed in the pantry thus making storing food items much more difficult. These items were reported to the management company with no action being taken during our stay. In spite of these things, overall, we were content with our stay at Bella Vista.
Manager response on 2016-10-04 - Response from Silver Sands Vacation Rentals
Thank you for taking time to post a review of Bella Vista. We are happy that you had a great time with your family and found it comfortable. The new built in grill was on order (and since put in) but, was not here when you rented the house and we apologize for the inconvenience. The ceiling fans have been fixed and new pots and pans have been added to the kitchen. WE do appreciate you letting us know what you thought as it help us correct whatever issues arise. Give us a call when you are ready to come back to Port A and stay again at Bella Vista!

We were very happy with this beautiful vacation home and its location. There were 15 family members and there was plenty of room. The large living area on the 3rd floor accommodated all of us very comfortably with everything we needed to enjoy meals together and to just hang out. Loved the outdoor shower and refreshing pool. A short walk to the beach by way of a boardwalk was so convenient. Will definitely stay here again.

I was really impressed with the rental process with Silver Sands, I rent a lot of VRBO and they're the most professional team I've dealt with so far.
Like that the house had a bathroom in each room. Quite noisy on 2nd floor if you have early risers! Had a great stay and enjoyed the large upper floor with enough seating for all!

Overall, the house was great. Lots of space, good layout, good location and nice views. We had a fantastic stay with our family and plan to rent this house again.

A few minor complaints:
- The house was lacking some supplies that should have been provided: paper towels, hand towels in kitchen, dishwasher soap.
- Some of the beds need a better mattress liner so that the plastic sound isn't an issue.
- The door to the top patio didn't work.

The house is very nice, great location, and clean. It is also large, 7 bedrooms, however the bunk room downstairs for the kids has no door so it is very noisy. There is very little insulation between the floors also so it is very hard to sleep if ANYONE is moving around on the floor above you. Very noisy house.
The kitchen is not very well equipped either. We were very disappointed with the property management company too. We called the first day we were there with a couple of items that needed attention. They never called back, never showed up to fix the problems, just never responded at all. We actually called back on the second day to remind them of the issues and they still never responded.

This is an excellent property for families to enjoy. Great view of the gulf - Boardwalk to the beach basically right out the door. The private pool was enjoyed by all.
We had 16 people and all were pleased with how much room we had and never felt crowded.
The rental is excellent. The management company was courteous and helpful.
There seemed to be a break down between inspector and people doing the clean up prior to next guests. The outdoor bar next to pool where the grill is was dirty and greasy. The decks could have used some cleaning. Floors especially in eating area were dirty.
Over all we were very pleased just think there needs to be better oversight of the custodial people.
We would recommend this property.

We decided to have my sister's bachelorette party in Port Aransas, and was able to find this little gym through an online search ( - maybe). We loved it b/c it has it's own private pool and it's steps from the beach. It's also very close to where all the action takes place in Port A, so the convenience factor was a nice bonus!

The only things we would have changed is that we wished it had more kitchen supplies, as it was missing a few key items and we had to improvise. We also wish it would have supplied more towels. We had exactly enough and everyone had to reuse the same towel during the course of the weekend. More dishwasher soap and detergent would have been nice too... other than that, it was a wonderful weekend!
Manager response on 2015-06-23 - Response from Silver Sands Vacation Rentals
Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Bella Vista. I have taken an inventory of the kitchen supplies and updated since your stay. We do provide enough bath towels for every renter plus two extra. There is a washer/dryer onsite for you to use. We do not provide beach towels. We provide a starter package of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dish soap, all purpose cleaner and trash bags. If you are planning on staying for an extended period of time I would suggest bringing extra. Or use our concierge service. We will gladly stock the house for you before your arrival. We hope you choose to stay with us again on your next trip to Port A!

Our stay at Bella vista was amazing!

View of beach and within a short walk. Nice private pool. Small issue of kitchen being on 3rd floor, makes for a long walk from the pool to get a snack. Like the individual baths for each room

We had a great time in this well appointed beach house. It is conveniently located a short walk from the beach. The walkway is literally across the street, so that you can easily walk back and forth to beach.Property management was very dependable, sending help to assist with thermostat problems on day 1. We would easily rent this property again.

We decided to end our summer by spending Labor Day at Bella Vista and that was the greatest idea we ever had. Everything was awesome there was plenty of room for our 10 adults and we could have added at least 5 more. Definitely going to rent it again next summer.

Was the perfect house/location to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Plenty of room for us to have our own private space and time together. We had a great time. House was clean with the exception of glasses on the floating shelf having dead insects on the shelf and the grill being dirty from previous guests. Do wish there were more towels as we were needing to wash them almost daily. Management did quickly address some issues with the air conditioning (thermostat was locked and pass code wasn't working initially). We had a blast renting golf carts and racing each other around or getting places easily.

Our overall experience was very positive. First, the positive - 100 yards from the beach over a nice boardwalk, limited view of beach from balconies, cold air conditioning, nice bedrooms, large family room that easily accommodated our large group, private pool and outdoor shower, and nice grilling station by the pool. Oh and no noisy neighbors - peaceful and quiet on our stay!
Areas for improvement - most of the "clean" dishes needed to be rewashed, lack of paper towels, trash bags and toilet paper (we called management and housekeeping provided these within an hour. They did say we were only to be provided with a "starter" supply which I thought was in poor taste given the high cost of the rental unit), so you'll need to bring your own. The kitchen and family room are on the third floor - you get more efficient during your stay, making sure you only have to go up or down once in a great while, haha. Finally, the cooking utensils and pans are adequate but very basic. Consider bringing some of your own stuff if you are cooking for a large group as well as all your own spices.
Overall, we were very pleased with the property and would recommend it to others.

For six couples (plus kids), this is the perfect house. So nice to have king beds in all 6 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. 4 bunk beds for kids on 1st floor is great, although a shade needs to be put on the door leading to the outside - we hung a towel up for that.

Big kitchen & dining area - plenty of room for everyone. House was brand new, so the mini fridge on the first floor hadn't been installed yet. Really, they should put a full fridge on the first floor considering the size of groups that will be staying in this place - we used coolers to store our food & drinks that didn't fit in the kitchen fridge.

Very close to the beach and nice to have a private pool. These two features made everyone happy.

An additional couch or love seat in the living room would be nice... current setup seats 7 adults around the coffee table, but the furniture is great for a beach house - it's faux leather, way better than fabric couches that get gross from sand and humidity.

The house was clean except for the oven and outdoor grill (not a big deal). Kitchen had a good stock of utensils and bakeware.

We've been going to port A for the past 3 years with a big group (12 adults, 4 kids) and this is by far the best house we've rented.

Everyone is looking forward to our next visit.
