“Nice place to stay near the beach”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

We spent one night in Port Aransas and enjoyed our stay at Executive Keys. We rented an efficiency condo and it was larger and nicer than we expected. Each condo is privately owned so the decor and set up varies. The condos were built in the 70's, so the room is pretty large; just don't expect a super fancy place. There are larger condos (with more bedrooms), but the small one suited us well. My parents traveled with us and also enjoyed their condo. I was surprised that the condo did not have a blow dryer and did not offer shampoo or hand lotion.

There was a journal in our condo with a note from the owners explaining their history with EK and suggested we write down our thoughts, which I did. This small detail made us feel even more comfortable and welcome (Thanks Mary Jo and Tom!)

Many of the other condos we looked at had a minimum stay of two nights, so it was great that EK did not require a 2-night stay. The office staff was very nice and gave us ideas where to eat and have fun. There is a boardwalk to the beach and a pool.

There are no restaurants in the immediate vicinity, so you will need to drive to a restaurant. Another option is to take some groceries and cook in your fully stocked kitchen or barbeque out on the grill.

Our condo was nicely decorated and very clean. The grounds are well manicured and have many beautiful plants and trees. The area was quite (not sure if that's because it's off-season) and we felt safe. We will definitely plan to stay at Executive Keys on our next trip to Port Aransas.

My friend, her young daughter and I stayed the night July 10,2012. We stayed in the effeciency room, it was large enough for all 3 of us. The room has a queen bed and a comfy futon. There was a large balcony with 2 chairs. The pool is large and has plenty of lounge chairs around it. There was a small play ground for kids and a large grassy area in the middle of the condos for kids to run and play on. The beach is very close, maybe 2 blocks, there is a boardwalk from the codos or the access road to get to it. The condo was clean and the AC worked great! The location is just out of town, it's a great location for families with kids, there aren't any busy streets around the condos. There are two stores close by. All the shops and restaurants are only a 5 min. drive. We are planning a family trip in September and plan on staying here again.

These condos are in a great location as there is a boardwalk to the beach. The accommodations are clean, inviting, but not necessarily posh. I would recommend these condos especially in the off season when prices are more reasonable.

We arrived early and our room was not ready. However, they made sure to prepare our room ahead of schedule so we could check in early. When we checked in it smelled a little musty but once we turned on the air conditioner it cleared out the smell. Our AC was loud but worked well and froze us. (Which is a good thing.) Our back porch looked out onto the grass courtyard so that was kind of boring. However, we were very close to the pool and beach.

All that being said, it was excellent service and quality for the price I paid. Do not overpay for some of the other condos in Port A. This one is homely and nice and inexpensive and worth it. Not reccomended for high maintenance people.

Room Tip: Small rooms are on the bottom floors.

We booked here initially on recommendation from a friend who had a history of being 50/50 on the quality of her recommendations - this time however she was 100% correct. We booked a single King size efficiancy and were extremely happy with the cleanliness, the room size, amenities, price and above all location. A brief stroll across the well manicured and lush grass outside our room led us to a cut through the sand dunes and onto the beach. The staff were at all times courteous, there was noise pollution from the parties on the beach that night nor indeed from the other guests staying at the Keys. We've already rebooked our next stay and look forward to returning later this month for a longer stay.
