The cabins themselves were very clean and a nice size for our family of five. The girls were esp. happy with the bunk beds that they have put in cabin 6 because it allowed them to spread out a little more than the old layout. Unfortunately, putting the bunk beds in required them to take out the old dresser and... More

We waited to make reservations until our choices were limited. We had never stayed at Double Barr before. When I called to make the reservations the lady, Ashley, was very friendly and helpful. Our cottage was 2 bedroom. The bedrooms were ample in size. The kitchen and dining area was a little small and tight for my husband and I... More

If I could give this place a 0 I would. I have never been in a more terrible place in my entire life. I cannot speak for the cottages as we were in the mobile home. There are 12 cottages and two mobile homes. First of all there was not a single hanger in the place, not a single drawer... More

As two graduate students my husband and I were looking for an inexpensive, but comfortable stay and this place definitely fit the bill. We walked to the beach everyday and walked to a few great restaurants close by. The owners were super friendly and recommended great places to eat and things to do. You can tell they are making improvements... More

It was what I expected based on the few pictures I could find. We stayed in the "deluxe" trailer. It slept 6, 2 queen beds, 1 futon. All the beds were okay, not spectacular comfortable, not uncomfortable. Location is great. Although I believe they advertise 2 blocks from the beach, its more like 4-5 "city" sized blocks. Everything was clean,... More

Not what was advertised on hotels,com. Couch looked like a 40's model, broken, and had holes on it. TV 50's model, refrig rusted. Looked worse than some fishing camps we had been in. I don't know how anyone could honestly post this to be rented!

We stayed in one of the beach side cottages in January with our three teenage kids. We were about 200 yds from the water Not luxurious by any means but we had plenty of space for all of us. Nice to have the kitchen area for cooking and snacking. If you plan on staying for a couple of days and... More

Cant express how gross it was-Blood on shower curtain, stains all over the beds, windows-ref-floors-filthy. Had to wear flip flops in shower /and on floors! Decorative hand towel after unfolding was filled with dirt and hair. Used cup filled with black stuff under bed. Rooms never cooled. Doesn't look anything like pics.

We traveled to port Aransas on a very busy/booked weekend. Luckily we found the Double Barr Cottages had an availability. I thought the only cottages they had were in their main lot but we were surprised to find that our cottage was on another property. It was awesome --- quaint and quite. We had the place all to ourselves. Full... More

Very helpful front office person named Suzy, who was fantastic. Places are cute and add charm from normal sterile hotel rooms. Our unit was clean and Suzy had turned the AC on to cool and accommodated our late arrival. Having a kitchen for making meals was a plus, but the unit could use some better pots, pans, and some kitchen... More
