This unit was super clean, well equipped in the kitchen, beds were comfy, location was good, dog friendly, very spacious and the list goes on. The pool was beautiful and heated, it was barely pushing lukewarm so it could have been warmer but it was ok. Definitely would love a large hot tub. Walking distance to the beach. Could use an HEB or Walmart a little closer but there are convenience stores around the corner. We however did run into a problem with the sleeping arrangement. It started that there was a credenza (pull out bed) in the livingroom however one the 1st night 2 of my guest had no where to sleep which was very upsetting for us all! We had a breaker flip for the 2 bathrooms which they did walk us through getting that fixed right away. Overall it was a 4* place for us and we will be staying again in a bigger unit next time.

We stayed here in December. We were a total of 7 in our group and there was plenty of room. We have two small dogs and this place allows pets. That made the deal for us. We did not want to leave our pups behind. The beautiful thing about this beach is that you can walk your dogs on the beach with a leash. The house was right by the pool! The pool is just perfect! The house had all the items we needed plus more. The restrooms had all the toiletries needed and the washer and dryer were awesome. The beds in the room were very comfortable and the decor of the home is beautiful. All the rooms had smart TVs and we were able to watch Netflix on them. The restrooms had bath and body soaps and I loved that little detail❤️ The beach is just a short walk away on a quiet road. I would definitely stay here again.

This was an awesome place to spend our vacation. Very nice, clean and spacious. Being located next to the beautiful pool was a plus. Property management was very helpful. We will be back for sure.

I booked beachside stay several months ago. I am a single parent with two small kids and staying beachside is very convenient for me as well as accessible to the beach. Not being able to stay beachside required that I drive to the beach, load and unload daily. The constant loading and lifting caused severe back ache and pain. I have a very bad back in which I see a Chiropractor regularly. I was in pain all weekend and couldn’t wait to get back home to see my Dr. Un addition to to being misplaced, I was away from my other family members that had condos next to mine. I did not enjoy this visit to the beach at all.
The replacement property was nice but not convenient for me or my personal health.

It was great place to stay. Clean, modern, plenty of supplies to get started, good cook/silverware and a great coffee pot ;) The pool was fantastic and gorgeous at night. Lots of family's and a pretty good location to everything. Oh, and La Palma Mexican restaurant (right around the corner) is fantastic!

Chose condo after looking at multiple listings because of amazing swimming pool and bunkbeds.
Sometimes pictures are better than actual property but not in this case. Condo was spotless, beautiful,had everything you could possibly need. Walking distance to beach although we drove and parked on beach. Would definitely stay there again

The condo was very clean and up kept. Perfect location to the beach and the pool. The only down side was the garbage dumpster was far away. We met Buddy who does the rounds on the Village by the beach property very friendly. Looking forward to staying here in the future.

Hi Im writing to let yall know there where several problems we had while staying at the condo.
1). The air conditioning temperature
We didnt care for yall controlling the temperature, we where very uncomfortable and warm.
2). I had spilled some water on the kitchen floor, so as I was wiping it up the mop was black with dirt.
3). We where making something in the oven and the condo was filling with smoke, Im surprised that the smoke dector dont go off, but that was no problem cause I found the dector in the masters bedroom closet, so I guess there was something on the bottom of the oven.
4). I had called for more towels and was told we had to just wash the ones we had because we have a washer and dryer.
So there fore I do think that we should be compensated.

We do not control th thermostat. When you move the temp below 68, it automatically moves back up by 1 degree every 5 minutes until it gets to 68 then stops. We appreciate your feedback on the cleaning, that is certainly not up to our normal standard and will be addressed with the housekeepers. We will contact you directly in regards to compensation. Thank you for your feedback.

Place was clean. Well stocked. Very cute decor. Pool was warm. Beach was close. Restaurants and stores near by.

It was completely automated I must say. They waived my late arrival fee. They shared me the keycode over the mail after they verified my identity. I checked in and checkout without meeting anyone from the property management team. Very professional team and the property was well equipped and amazing. And a special mention about the heated pool.

Our family had a great time at this property. Overall well kept and clean and very close to beach. Kids loved the pool and it was nice to be able to keep eye on them from inside condo that's pool side. Only issue is that trash that is pool side needs to be taken daily. Couple of days had trash with bad smell that was at pool and near our condo.

The pictures do it no justice. We had such a wonderful time at Village by the Beach. The amenities are countless. To the baby bed rails, high chair, toiletries, kid step stool, extra blankets, towels, pool towels, the well stocked kitchen and don't get me started on the pool! We had a fabulous time and cannot stop telling friends and family about this place. It is really a gem! The beds were so comfortable. The AC was cold. The place was super clean. The decor was beachy but not cliché. The pool was clean and had so many areas for the little ones to play. The splash pool was much appreciated but so were the "beach" walk in areas as well. We spent most of our time in the pool and loved it. A fellow vacationer told us about the phase 2 pool next door and it was a hit with my 2 year old. There is also a playground as well. I have tons of pictures and also filmed a tour that I will be posting on my youtube channel. Awesome vacation!!

No complaints whatsoever on the condo. The pool at the condo on the other hand could stand a little bit better monitoring. In the afternoon of Sunday, July 2nd an entire softball team along with their parents consumed just about the entire pool area. The occupancy limit was 50 and I would say that the team was close to that number alone. As you can imagine the pool water was not something you would want to even get in, let alone enjoy. Is the pool a public pool or is it just for those staying in the condos there? My family and I had plans of using a grill at the pool and that did not happen as we would have had to become part of their party just to make our food, while they enjoyed their pizza party (as a large amount of pizzas were delivered for them). We paid $---- a night to stay in the condo and enjoy the amenities and that was definitely not possible that night. When waking up the next morning we heard that another family had quite a few things stolen from the front porch of their condo which caused us to be even more frustrated with the number of people at the pool the night before.

Comfortable & fun spaces for the whole family. Easy walking distance to the beach.

Loved our stay at Villages by the Beach...Hated the table and chairs that were provided for dining and game playing, not comfortable at all!

We had a fabulous time in Texas! My family decided on a final big trip before my kids went off to college. We definitely picked the right place to vacation. The condo was spacious, clean and very inviting. Sitting on our porch was so relaxing. It was so relaxing to listen to the pools fountains and hearing the ocean in the background. The weather was warm and a bit humid. Perfect for us that came to visit from Wisconsin! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you!

We were pleasantly surprised, not knowing what to expect when we booked this unit for a 3-day extension to a conference in San Antonio. The living room cabinet turns into a comfortable bed which we thought was a piece of furniture. Fortunately, one of our group of 3 knew what it was, how to unfold it, and it was brand-new. The 2 bedrooms were spacious and comfortable with 2 full baths. There were lots of new cups, dishes, cutlery. The pool is very nice, and resort-like. The walk to the beach is very short. I highly recommend this place and ask that you keep it as clean and perfect as it appeared during our stay, because that made this very enjoyable and comfortable. Also, the real estate company made this very easy to find, and easy to check in and out.

- Sandra S. from San Antonio, Posted: 07/16/2016
Fun time with the family at this comfortable accommodations. We appreciated the family focus and having both the pool and the beach close by.
- Brian H. from Houston, Posted: 07/13/2016
Very nice condo. Only issue I had was the TV and internet were not working...and then the power went out for about 12 hours due to a storm, but no control over that! Beds were very comfy
