This is the second year our family has rented this home for a family vacation. All the adults get their own suite with king size bed and the kids get a bunk room to enjoy. The kitchen is large enough for us to prepare meals for the whole crew. It's nice to have a private pool to relax before and after the beach, and you can't ask for better beach access than you have at Bella Vista.

Bella Vista Beachfront is a lovely house .. the house was clean that is worth ALOT THANK YOU !! Beds were comfortable with nice linens. It accommodated our family perfect .. it’s a great perk each bedroom has its own bathroom..was so GREAT !! YES it was frustrating VERY FEW washcloths and hand towels issue !! YES it’s steps up to top floor kitchen dining ( finally a home where we could all sit down around the table/ tables for meals AWESOME!!) & lovely deck ,the view and deck was so so worth the steps ... .. great view of beach and ships coming and going .... JUST a few steps from house and your on the boardwalk to the beach ..we loved that !! IF you go on down past the pier you’ll find dolphins �� playing in the water ... AND another perk ... private swimming ����‍♀️ pool !! our kiddos loved playing in the pool . . Pool was nice n clean ..
We will have to agree there is some maintenance needed .. yes the door on top floor going out to the deck needed a handle and 2nd floor doors going out onto the decks wouldn’t unlock but since several of us have reported this issue... I’m sure Silver Sands and the owner want us back that these maintenance issues will be addressed !! BUT these small maintenance issues pale with ALL THE POSITIVES of the house & location.... We as a a family loved it and we’ll definitely rent again when we come back to Port Aransas..

very nice

We had such a good family vacation here. The house had more than enough room for our crazy family. We were able to stretch out and have room for everyone to enjoy what they like best. The only thing we found lacking was some way to clean the floors while we were there. The vacuum was broken and there wasn’t a broom to be found anywhere but that’s an easy remedy. We will definitely be back. We loved the private pool and easy access to the beach. It made a trip with an infant, baby, toddlers, and older children not only doable but extremely enjoyable.

Manager's Response

Hugh, I apologize for the inconvenience with the vacuum but I will relay this information to the owners and see about getting a new one. Other than that, I am so happy that you enjoyed this property! Thank you for trusting Silver Sands with your vacation, and we will see you next time!

Fun in the sun!

We took 16 people to this rental and filled every bed! All were cool, comfortable, and had a great time! We would stay here again, for sure. We could have used some insulation between the floors - the kitchen/living is on the third floor and every noise is amplified in the lower bedrooms.

Manager's Response

Thank you for letting us know about this. Your feedback helps us get better. We are looking into this issue and hope to resolve it promptly and accurately.

The home was amazing and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and pans. Great pantry space! We all loved having our own bathrooms! So convenient to the beach for the kids! It was the perfect vacation , except......... there was a shuffleboard table in living area which our entire family loves- but there was no sawdust/ shuffleboard sand to be found. We looked everywhere. We called the management company 4 times in 2 days and although they promised to bring us some over right away every time we called, they never showed up or called us back the whole weekend. After two days we started calling around, and every place we called the people were friendly and helpful. After several calls to business and bars, someone finally gave us the number for Don Patterson of a billiard supply on the island and he not only sold it directly to us, but delivered it to the house!! Silver Sands, if you need shuffleboard sawdust/ sand— all you have to do is call Don Patterson. I would like to thank Silver Sands for letting us check in an hour early.

Manager's Response

Dear Mary,
Thank you so much for the feedback in regards to your recent stay while at "Bella Vista!"
We are delighted in hearing your home was well stocked with all the amenities needed for your getaway, along with the close proximity to the beach and everything Port A has to offer!
Our sincerest apologies on the shuffleboard sand needed during your stay! We most definitely will contact Don in the future and we are not able to get quick access to this particular type of sand needed.
We thank you and truly do look forward to having you back with us soon!

Very Sincerely,
Your Silver Sands Family

Started off slow with a green pool but turned out clear and silver sands was very responsive. Great house with lots of space for 7 couples. Giving it 4 stars for clean because of the pool but house itself was clean.

I had a full house of individuals (adults and children) stay at Bella Vista for a 1 week vacation. Overall, the house was very enjoyable, it is walks from the beach and has a private pool which we utilized every day of our trip! Someone came in the morning and picked up around the pool which was really nice, and we had more than enough space for everyone. A great perk was the individual bathrooms and showers in every room- people really appreciated that! Overall, we had a very nice week, however there are a few recommendations and suggestions that we have based on our experience...

1. The house was "clean" as in surface clean. There was some reminiscence of dead bugs higher up on the walls that had been squished and not cleaned that had obviously been there for a while that were never removed. We would have liked to see small things like this taken care of before we arrived.

2. I had read some reviews about issues with the BBQ heating up, and called ahead of time to ensure this was dealt with before our arrival as we planned to use the BBQ quite a bit. I was assured that a new part had been ordered and it had been fixed, however when we went to use the BBQ we were disappointed to find that it had issues heating up and reaching a high temperature. For this reason, we only used it once, which was a bit of a disappointment.

3. I had also called ahead of time more than once to request more towels in advance (based on previous reviews that there were not sufficient towels provided), and was assured that this would be taken care of. When we arrived there were no extra towels. Not a huge deal but it would have been nice to have that ahead of time given that it was specifically requested.

Overall, we loved the house and would stay again, these are just small recommendations that could have taken a good stay and made it great! We appreciated the ease of booking on the part of Silversands, and would recommend this house to others.

Manager's Response

Dear Julia,
We greatly appreciate the feedback you have provided in regards to the beautiful "Bella Vista!"
We are delighted in hearing this very popular and quite popular home of ours was very enjoyable and that you and your family members were able to enjoy your walks to the beach, along with your private pool that "Bella Vista" had to offer.
Our sincerest apologies on the BBQ grill, as this is a brand new grill and it has been working great since recently being replaced. I will surely reach out to our maintenance team and ask them to please check it once more to ensure there are no issues with the new grill.
We do greatly appreciate you bringing to our attention that the home did not have the extra towels you had requested, as this most definitely should have been taken care of for you. For this, please do accept our sincerest apologies and know it has indeed been addressed.
Thank you so much for allowing Silver Sands the opportunity to have you stay with us and we do hope to help you with your next stay to Port A again in the near future.

Very Warmest Regards,
Your Silver Sands Team

This house was ideal for our large group of 6 couples, 6 king size beds each with their own private bath. Great living area with large bar, two large tables, shuffle board and puzzle table. We enjoyed all of it. Wonderful large porch with view of the ocean and easy access to the boardwalk to the beach, just out the side door. Would highly recommend this place!

House was amazing, just right for large groups. Beds clean, floors were swept, but could have used a good mopping. Kitchen worked well, plenty of cookware and dishes. Door locks and latches on all balcony doors need to be repaired. Plant of outdoor seating around decks and pool. The grill was a huge disappointment, dirty and not adequate to grill a steak or burger as temperature didn't reach a decent temperature. Just a short walk to the beach, and the view was amazing. Internet service was hit or miss, not all cable boxes worked, hope they get that resolved for the next guests. Overall great stay though, worth the money if you have a large group.

Manager's Response

Hi Kathleen! We are glad the house size worked well for your group and you were all able to enjoy the beautiful view. We understand your frustration with the internet and apologize. We have been having sporatic internet service over the island and spectrum has been working on getting the issue taken care of. We look forward to you visiting us again soon!

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.

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's Response

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.

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.

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's Response

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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's Response

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!

The house was wonderful! We really enjoyed having a private pool! We would definitely rent the house again.

Great vacation home for a large group!

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.
