Nicest place to stay in Port Aransas
The home was spacious and modern. It was immaculate and had all the amenities you could ask for. Very small shampoo and conditioner bottles provided so if you have long hair you should bring your own. Water pressure also on the low side. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of space to spread out. The pool was beautiful and just a short walk over a bridge to the beach. Speaking of the beach, they have portable bathroom facilities that they bring to the beach each morning that were the cleanest I've ever seen. No porta potty needed. Air conditioned, running water, clean restrooms. That alone was worth the stay!

This house completely met all our needs and everyone enjoyed their stay. The beds were a little too firm in a couple of the rooms, but overall it was good. I especially liked the pool being so close and really nice size. The beach was very convenient as well. We cooked all our meals in the house and there was amply space to accommodate all of us. (8 adults and 3 small children) I highly recommend this house.

Best Rental in Port Aransas
This house was the perfect rental for our group of 6 adults and 2 small children. The home was spacious, beautiful, and modern. We found that everything was true to the description and photos. Since the kitchen and main living areas were on the 3rd floor, the elevator came in handy. Walking to the beach was definitely possible, but with 2 small kids, we elected to get beach permits for the cars and make the short drive down. The resort staff was extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations for activities and dinner locations. The golfers in the group enjoyed playing the Arnold Palmer links course. And, the runner in the group enjoyed running through the Palmilla resort and the adjoining Sunflower resort. We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Port A.

Thanksgiving get away
Our family enjoyed the house over Thanksgiving weekend. It was very clean and had everything you need to cook meals. We liked how close to the pool it was and enjoyed the views. The elevator came in handy for my parents and bring groceries up to the kitchen. The staff was friendly and helpful. We plan to come back again!

Great family getaway.
I rented this home for a family get together that included six kids under 10 and six adults. It was perfect. The spacious kitchen (that was fully outfitted for all our needs) was great for us all to gather in and the bedrooms each with their own bath accommodated all of us. It was a little bit of a walk to the beach for the very young children, but seeing as you could rent a golf cart, or drive your car onto the beach, that was easy to get around. The house was clean, as was the pool area, and the golf course was great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get away.

Stayed here with my family over the new year.We are from Canada and didn't realize how amazing the texas golf coast is. The house is large and spacious and is even better than the pictures portray it. The master bedroom is breath taking, it overlooks the pool and golf. The pool is at your door step and the beach just a short walk or you can drive a golf car over the board walk or drive your car on the beach, the access road is at the end of the street. Convenience plus! Palmilla has so much to offer, and there quest services are wonderful and friendly and always willing to help and please you. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the grill on the third floor balcony was nice.. Your view from the third floor balcony was spectacular. Looking forward to staying again this fall.

Great Place to Stay
Beautiful home with all amenities including an elevator which came in handy for groceries and anyone with bad knees since living area is on top floor. The view is exactly as pictured from 3rd floor balcony and although there isn't anything close to beach access it is easy to get to and we don't mind walking. We rented a golf cart for 3 days which is the best way to tour the beach and getting to town by beach is easy and fun. The casita was very clean but I would recommend disposing of the metal can in master toilet area. (not sure what it was but didn't want to touch it) Rusted and leaving rust stain on floor. I would definitely stay here again.

The house was great. Awesome views. The kitchen was stocked better than any place we have ever stayed. The staff we met was friendly, The pool was wonderful. WE did rent a golf cart when we arrived because we had 6 adults and 5 children between 2 and 7. It was a life saver getting to the beach. I checked prices when we got home and the resort was cheaper than places in town. Just a few very small negatives. The entry code is too long to memorize. It could be changed to the person's phone number on the lease so everyone in the party would know it. The chime on the alarm was annoying to the people in the ground floor king bedroom that wanted to sleep in were awakened by those wanting to watch the sunrise on the 3rd level deck. We will consider leasing the house again on our next beach vacation.

Oceanview Luxury Casita
Overall the stay was great. The house was perfect. The major problem was construction on one side of us, and in front. You could never get out of the parking space because all the construction guys were parked behind and all over the street. It was noisy and they would not move. Theses streets are so tiny that you have to drive on the curb to even pass a construction truck that has taken over the whole road. Upstairs in the kitchen they had a patio door that said not to unlock. We didn't and it blew open. I do not know how it did not break with how bad the wind was that night. The pool was fantastic and every employee at the pool and renting the umbrellas, and chairs for the beach were very friendly and very helpful. I would have rated this vacation a 5, but the construction going on at 8:00 am and until dark, was not what I would have expected on my relaxing vacation. I do understand you have to have building going on, but we should have been informed of this when we made this reservation, and we may have stayed further away from the construction.

This casita was a beautiful and had more than enough room for 3 separate families. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were on vacation. The home, the pool, the golf carts, food, bar and close proximity to the beach. It was all amazing.

We go to Port A annually, but this was our first time at Palmilla Beach & working with Turnkey. A VERY pleasant experience & wouldn’t hesitate to do it again! Everyone at Palmilla was very helpful & went out of their way to make sure our vacation was perfect.

We went to Port A with our 4 young adult kids. The house is amazing! Loved having the elevator to unpack with. The pool area is right outside the door. Nice big pool. We ended up renting a golf cart because it is quite a ways to the board walk to the beach. Plus, it was fun having a 6 person golf cart to ride around in. We even took it into town to go out to eat. The house was so nice that we enjoyed just hanging out at the house some. The beds were very comfortable and the house was very accommodating. We enjoyed out stay there.

Amazing Port Aransas Vacation
I have rented in Port Aransas for the last 3 years and this was my favorite rental/vacation by far. Love the Palmilla Beach Resort and would definitely return. The pool was beautiful and amazing. Love the small activities they do for the kids like the pool movies, smores, etc. The rental was really nice and fit all of the families needs that we were staying with. My only complaint is that the floors were very, very dirty when we arrived. Everyone's feet were black. I almost called to have someone clean them, but decided against it. Other than that, we were very happy with our stay.

Very nice rental in Palmilla
The house is lovely, and it was very clean when we checked in. The only small complaint is that the rental management company left us very few towels and no facial tissue, but otherwise our stay was very nice and trouble free. The area is still under a lot of construction, but the house is in good shape.

We enjoyed our stay at Palmilla. As far as the house: We unfortunately reported a leak in the upstairs half bath from a fan which no one ever came and addressed. There was mold growing when we left. This certainly should have been corrected.

great pool and easy beach access, friendly staff onsite
loved the palmilla experience and will go back for sure!! a few issues with the house: the house was not equipped for the amount of people it says it houses. the kitchen did not have alot of needed cooking items (one pan for example) and the grill was suoer tiny so we had to borrow a grill from a friend from their rental in order to cook for our 7 adults and 3 kids. also, we did not have enough beach towels and based on previous reviews, we immediately notified turnkey and requested one beach towel for each person (10 total) and we never got them. that was an inconvenience. so the resort is great and friendly staff but the house was definitely not stocked like other rentals we've stayed in and turnkey was not as responsive as they claim to be based on previous reviews. i say this to warn you to bring your own supplies or stay at a more equipped house if you plan on cooking.

Nice, Spacious home
The home was great. Lots of space and thank goodness for the elevator because it is a lot of stairs with the kitchen being on the top floor as well as my father who can't do stairs at all. There were a few hiccups with not having any hand towels in the upstairs master but we just used our bath towels. We never received any baby gates, but luckily I brought my homemade ones and used chairs to block the others. Turn Key was always there to answer any questions and help out when I needed. Great place to stay minus all the mosquitoes!

Beautiful Weekend in a beautiful location
Beautiful new subdivision with lots of amenities and close to the beach. House was clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the elevator to move our food and supplies up to the top 3rd floor where the kitchen and living space is located. Only problem with having the kitchen on the top floor is the noise travels easily throughout all levels of the house. Also, the house is able to sleep up to eleven people. But privacy may be an issue as you share rooms with bunk beds. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Although the property was nice and with a good location, the kitchen is on the third floor and to get there using stairs, with groceries for 7 people is a major feat. The house has an elevator that didn't work. It took me three phone calls and two visits to the local Turnkey office. I got ignored until the last call. The elevator was fixed on the sixth day of a 10 day rental. I can only imagine what would've happened if the air conditioning or refrigerator had broken down. The most unfortunate part is that this property has everything for a great review, but management messed it up.
