Great Property - Would rent again.
We enjoyed our long weekend at the Palmilla Resort townhome. It is very close to the pool and the golf course pro shop. The beach is easily accessed from the boardwalk and the beach access road very nearby. Highly recommend renting a golf cart. It is best to reserve one ahead of time. Only downsides were the construction next door and the golf course being closed due to damage from Harvey. In time (later this year) these will no longer be issues and the site would get 5 stars. Love the floor plan layout. Front door pass code did not work, but Turnkey Rep was there within 15 minutes to let us in and give us a working code. Would be nice if the thermostat was located on the middle level instead of the third floor.

We had a GREAT stay
The home was beautiful and well stocked with necessities! Was a little disappointed in the amount of construction near the home, but it didn’t stop us from having a great time. Loved how convenient everything thing was at the resort. The golf cart rental was perfect for the haul to the beach.

I'd stay here again
This unit was spacious, especially the kitchen where most families gather. The furnishings were new and the house was very clean. The bathrooms were large and came with plenty of fluffy towels. The only thing I would add is a garbage can in the garage so we could dispose of our trash properly. We did have the wrong code (we were given a ten digit code instead of the correct six digit code needed) but Turnkey reps fixed it within 15 minutes. The complex has great amenities such as a beautiful pool with plenty of shade and pool bar next to it.The boardwalk is pretty far away, so I'd recommend renting a golf cart. At the beach you can rent a beach set up with chairs and umbrella. One more thing-wifi is very slow.

This property was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed in while vacationing in Port A. Very comfortable spacious home. With inviting decor and up to date appliances and kitchen ware. The condo had everything we needed plus more, from a Kuerig Coffee brewer to an extra blow up mattress. Thank you to the homeowners for letting us stay here. We will be back!

Great place with kids!
I braved spring break as a single mom with 4 14 year old boys by myself! This condo was perfect! The kids had their own space upstairs, could easily walk to and from the beach safely, and we were also right next to the pool. We were only here 3 nights but the washer and dryer also came in handy! We cooked meals, hung out in living room and then retreated to our own spaces when we needed breaks from each other! It was perfect! Clean, comfy, well appointed! Already planning to book for next year! Construction was not a bother, always felt safe.

One word---WOW! We stayed here for a quick little getaway with our family and we are so glad that we chose this place. The inside is absolutely beautiful and perfect for 2 families. Our kids especially loved the third floor loft. The pool is just a few steps away and the beach is a short walk. To make things easier, when going to the beach, I recommend renting a golf cart from the Palmilla resort. We will definitely be back!

Our family of 8 had an absolutely wonderful time at 175 Sunset Ave. This property is located right next to the Palmilla resort pool and is just a short walk from the beach. The inside of the home was stocked perfectly with all of the essentials (kudos for having a Keurig) and our kids loved the loft on the third floor. We hope to visit again soon.

Condo was perfect for 3 couples and a toddler. Everyone had their own space.

Nice townhouse, good space, lots of stairs
We arrived to a clean unit. It is three floors so lots of stairs. The beds were comfortable and the ac worked great! There is instant hot water which is nice. The balcony off the master was nice although no furniture. The other balcony off the kitchen had bird poop so we didn’t use it at all. The garage smelled pretty awful. But overall, it was a nice unit. The fire alarm battery depleted started chirping in the evening one night of our stay and thankfully they sent someone with replacement batteries so it didn’t chirp all night. Everything worked as expected and we enjoyed our stay. Beware of mosquitos! They are awful by the front door and near grass and bushes. Also, just FYI, Palmilla resort doesn’t offer the chair/umbrella set up or beach restrooms until after Memorial Day which wasn’t noted anywhere when we made the reservation and they also don’t have any activities or anything going on until after Memorial Day also. Overall, we had a nice family vacation. Beach toys and chairs in the garage. They have about 6 beach towels above the washer. Two adults and three kids had a great stay!

Great Spot, Super Nice Up and Coming Community
We had a great time, and we were pleasantly surprised with how family friendly Port A turned out to be. Wanted to give this place a 5 star review, but the mold/mildew problem wouldn't allow. There must have been a leak in the house recently so the 2nd story bathrooms had mold/mildew on the ceilings. Housecleaning came back out during our stay, but it was still an issue - had to use the powder room bathroom mainly. Other than that, it was a great spot.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, and we’re so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! That being said, we do apologize for the issues you encountered and for any inconvenience this caused as well. Please note that there was a ventilation problem, which allowed the leaks in the home after heavy rainfall in the area. The homebuilder has since come out to repair all damage and fully resolve the underlying issue with the ventilation system that was causing this problem. If there is anything we can still do for you, reach out anytime and let us know. You were wonderful guests, and we’d love to host you again! -The TurnKey VR Team

We loved staying here. The layout was perfect for our family. Our 3 kids absolutely loved the bunk room on the 3rd level. And we loved it because they had their own space to hang out!! Everything was so clean and fresh. The pool is super close and the beach is just a little walk away. Our only suggestion would be to have chairs on the balcony to enjoy the views. We are already planning to come stay again. It was hard to leave!!!

Great Community, TurnKey Vacations Was not Helpful With Issues
While the community was amazing, the rental itself has some issues that primarily center around the managing company, turnkey vacation rentals. Prior to our visit, we contacted turnkey asking if there was a grill or blender on the property. They replied that there was not. When we arrived, a grill and blender were both there. We had ongoing issues that we communicated promptly to turnkey and while we received a response, nothing was done to help the situation. 1. The kitchen sink would not turn off so there was running water almost the entire time. 2. There was a dirty towel, dirty sock and multiple roaches in the first floor bedroom. 3. The door roller shade in the second floor bedroom would not roll up. 3. The TV in the second floor bedroom never worked. 4. The electricity went out in the second floor bedroom and bathroom. 5. The towel rack in the entry came out fo the wall because it was not anchored in to wall well enough to hold towels. 6. There were no kitchen dishtowels or pot holders. 7. The shower curtain in the downstairs bathroom was installed too short and let water out of the shower. While the space and layout were good, these lack of response from Turnkey Vacations would make us reconsider staying in a property managed by them again.

We loved everything about this property...
We loved everything about this property. The Pamilla Beach community is lovely with wonderful amenities. My husband and son enjoyed the golf course during our stay. We ate at the Black Marlin for lunch and were pleased with our food. The pool was clean and staff were very helpful. One sour note during our stay was that our beach canopy was stolen after we were told by the beach attendant that it would be fine to leave it overnight (we removed the tarp/cover and left the frame only). I reported the theft to guest services and they were very apologetic and comped our family beach set up for the next day. The house is very well decorated and is well stocked with everything you will need to enjoy your beach time in Port A. We can't wait to go back!

We had the best time! Despite being from Texas, this was my first time in Port A & it won’t be my last! We loved the house, it was just as beautiful as the pictures & spotless. My kids want a bunk room of their own now! The resort is beautiful & the staff so friendly & helpful. We enjoyed spending time at the pool when we weren’t at the beach (best pina colada I’ve ever had!). I highly recommend renting a golf cart because it makes getting to the beach a breeze & because it’s really fun! We’ll be back again & again!

The vacation house was perfect for our 2 families. Everything was perfect! The air conditioner worked great! We were pleased to find plenty of bathroom paper, kitchen trash bags, dish soap, etc... the little things that are typically frustrating to run out of. The house is located directly across from the pool which made it super convenient. Distance to beach with a golf cart was perfect. The only suggestion I have is it would be nice to have had a water hose on the exterior of the house to wash off sand.

This is our third time staying at a Palmilla property and this one was elegant and had everything we needed. The pool is amazing, the beach is close and it's convenient to get to the in-town attractions. The development is still under construction, which has its pros and cons. The pros are you have more space at the pool, bar and restaurant. The con is there's some noise from time to time. Overall lovely property. As good as it gets on the TX Gulf Coast.

Great place, at a great location! My family and I really enjoyed the home, and were impressed by the furnishings, layout, and cleanliness. Being close to the pool was really nice also. The only downside was having to check out at 10am. In the future, Id probably choose a home that would allow a later check out.
