The cottage was old and small. We booked a deluxe and was informed upon our arrival that the booked unit had flooded. There were oscillating fans pointing into the rooms in an attempt to cool the rooms off. It was very hot the entire first day since there was only one a/c window unit for the entire cottage. It was...

Thank you for staying at Double Barr Cottages. I'm sorry you had some issues during your stay. We did have a unit down with a water leak, and a oven door was broken the night before in the unit you were to stay in. After talking with you, you indicated there was no issue with no oven (since the stove...

Cant beat the location. It's in the middle of everything and only three blocks from the beach. Quiet family place to spend the night. Served our purpose, but would have liked a little more refinement. The downside was: A/C is a window unit, insufficient to cool down the entire place. Rust coming though fresh painted window trims, dated appliances. Matresses...

Thank you for staying at Double Barr Cottages. Our cottages are quaint at 450 sq ft. This is why we keep the occupancy at 6 people including children. Too many people in a cottage makes for a cramped unpleasant hot vacation. Due to the excessive heat this summer we have added second ac units to many of our larger cottages....

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...

Thank you for staying at Double Barr Cottages. Our guests' feedback is the best way for us to know how we are doing. We are sorry you feel we were not accessible. We are not usually off the property but just not always in the office. Most of your party was in my office or at the front palapa every...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
