We enjoyed our stay quite a bit. The cottage was very cute. It was pretty clean except for the floors but I guess it's hard to keep the floors really clean at the beach. We had our two small children with us both under 4 years old. The managers couldn't have been nicer. They really worked with us on which...

I have visited Port Aransas for over 40 years and always have stayed at the Double Barr. I originally stayed there as a child with my parents, enjoying the beach, fishing, and going out to great restaurants. 30 years later, and I am taking MY children. We would only stay at the Double Barr. Great value, clean, nicely furnished, two...

Starting two weeks before our actual trip the customer service Chris, Chassidy and the rest of the gang provided was great. They showed us around a few of the different cottages so we could take our pick, plus made suggestions on which ones might be better since we were traveling in a large vehicle to make parking easier. On the...

This was my third trip to the cottages in the past year. I keep coming back because of the cleanliness and close location to the gulf. I appreciate the animal friendly atmosphere with resteraunts all within walking distance. This trip was a little different because I arrived by myself and my brother came later. The managers Chris and Chassady, were...

If your looking for a clean, reasonably priced place to stay in Port Aransas, this is it. For over 15 years I've stayed at the Double Barr when I'm fishing as well as with my wife when I'm just headed to the Island for leasure. The accomodations work great, even if your towing your bay boat. Thanks for the help...

The service at the Double Barr was just fabulous. Chassity and Chris were down to earth and eagar to offer suggestions of places to eat yet they were never pushy or under foot. The other guests at the cottages were very friendly and several came to say hello when we were sitting on our "porch" at sunset. The cottage we...

This was our first trip to Port Aranasas. I did a lot of research to find a nice place to stay close to the beach. The staff was very friendly and informative. She gave us the best cottage to meet our needs. They were clean, comfortable and well stocked. They are blocks from the beach and the fishing pier. We...

This is the second time that we stayed in this vacation establishment instead of a hotel -- and it was perfect like before but alot more reasonably priced. Management was extremely friendly and accommodating to assist me with a booking on the spur of the moment. Clean and equipped with necessary equipment for a vacation away from home. Thank you...

We come out to Port A as much as possible-especially when my husband has to stop in Portland, Tx. on business. The cottage is super cute. DBC management was super nice to us and gave extra blankets to us in order to make our stay "extra" comfortable. The cottage was roomy enough for us 5 to move around easily and...
