Words cannot express how awful this place is. The "cottages" are really just little shacks that are very dirty, and very old. They smell of cockroaches, and roach activity is evident. The bathroom fixtures are rusted and dirty, there were no towels. The bunk bed was broken, and the bedspread had unidentified stains on it. I plugged in my phone... More

We have stayed at the Double Barr a few years ago, but this was our first time with new management. The staff was nice and helpful and even put in an extra A/C unit to help cool the room with the 100 heat index. The room was clean and spacious with room for a pack n play and x-large kennel,...

My friends and I wanted a bit more space than a hotel room for our quick trip to the beach. This place was perfect. Quiet, close to beach & town and all that was described-not luxury, but it is Port Aransas after all. Had none of the problems some have mentioned and front desk staff is really helpful on fun...

IGNORE the bad reviews. Our cottage was clean, a/c was cold-kitchen stocked-frig was clean. Yes, I saw some bugs, also saw the exterminator there, too. Yes, the bathroom was small, but served its purpose! We had a picnic table and bbq pit right outside the kitchen door. I am glad we ignored the bad reviews and decided to stay at... More

We stayed only one night there. 2 bedrooms, one didn't even have a door. Just a curtain. First 5 minutes of staying we saw 2 huge roaches/water bugs climbing the walls. Sheets looked dirty, appliances way outdated, ac unit is very loud, dirt and holes all over walls and cabinets. Bathroom very small. Only good things were the price wasn't... More

My family and I had such a great time at the Double Barr Cottages. The cottage was clean and well supplied. The environment was so peaceful. It is literally walking distance to the beach. The cottage staff was nice and friendly. They offered great visitor information and were well informed. I am going to book there again when we go... More

We took a last minute trip and so glad we did. The cottages were great. Close to the beach and very clean. We really did enjoy the weekend there. Making plans for our next trip and plan to stay there again... Judi

These cottages have a lot of potential, a few minor changes and I would highly recommend it. The beach and stores are walking distance. But It definitely needs an upgrade. For instants, the beds and pillows could use protectors, the comforters have to go they look faded and dirty. (Thank goodness we always bring our own pillows and sheets) The... More

We had a GREAT time here!! Upon check in, Manager Patsy gave us keys to check out which cottage we wanted !! Patsy was REALLY friendly, helpful, kind, patient, AND told us places to go, things to see, where to eat, shops, even things that only the locals know to look for or go to. Thank you Patsy--you are the... More

We stayed at Double Barr a few weeks ago and it was great. Patsy helped us find the best room they had and even welcomed our dog. It was a slow weekend and she upgraded us to a larger property even though it was just the two of us and the pooch. She didn't even hesitate just to make sure... More
