I have left several previous reviews of this property over the years and I am thoroughly impressed with managements ability to address the issues reviewers comment about on TripAdvisor. Previously, I had mentioned that the grills on the property were unusable. Their response: brand new natural gas grills that are piped in so that residents need only turn a valve... More

We recently spent 4 nights at the Double Barr Cottages in Port Aransas. The cottages are rather small, but do offer a separate bedroom with door. The cottage came with a large refrigerator / freezer, full size range, microwave, and sink as well as some dishes to cook with. The property is older and the bathroom was very small. There... More

I got a great last minute deal on the deluxe cottage. The ladies at check in were very nice and helpful. Once we got to the cottage though there were a decent amount of mosquitos inside that we had to continually swat throughout the night. While sleeping though, I didn't get too many bites. The location of this place is... More

Thank you for staying at Double Barr Cottages. Thanks to the Texas rains, mosquitoes have arrived in Port Aransas. The City sprays several times weekly and we spray our property but when going in out of cottages they do their best to get inside. I am glad they were under control by that night. Our wifi extender is not working... More

Customer service was great, they waited for us because we were running late to check in. We were in their trailer rooms, I had told them how many people were with us and they put us in perfect size. Clean, cold, cozy, had full kitchen, rooms were cozy, except our bed had permanent indentation so was uncomfortable about middle of... More

Thank you for staying at Double Barr Cottages. We love being a go-to place for you and your family. We are researching units to replace beds and the trailers are at the top of my list. Next time do not forget to ask about your 2nd location to use the pool. Again thank you for staying with us. More

It looks clean and nice from the street but the cottages are different story. We tried the place because it was pet friendly. I would recommend Island Hotel or even the Shark Reef Resort if you are looking for a pet friendly place to stay in Port A. . Bathroom disgusting -dark showers and lots of hard water build up....

Thank you for your feedback after your stay. We do try to let people know the bathrooms/showers are very small. They are classic 1950's boxed 3'x2' tile showers we are researching ways to get more light in those areas. I wish you would have let the office know of the hard water build up and any housekeeping issues you were... More

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
