This home is as luxurious as it looks in the pictures. The kitchen truly is fully stocked with everything you need for cooking, and the house’s layout is perfect for large families. We felt comfortable from the beginning. The pool was great for the kids after a day at the beach, and the great room and kitchen area provided plenty of space for all of us (20) to gather for meals, games, and conversation. Fantastic!

This was the best beach house we ever rented. It is beautiful and very well maintained. The kitchen had every item one could need. The owners provided kitchen and bathroom supplies to start the week so it was not necessary to go to the store on arrival. The house has a lovely view of a pond with birds, golf course, and the gulf from the main floor (3 floor). The community pool was heated and 1/2 block away. The beach access was close and a golf cart provided. It was a fabulous week!!!

This home was absolutely beautiful, and we had a perfect stay! The entire rental process, including check-in & check-out, was painless and simple. The home had everything you would need-complete with beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys, etc. Would definitely rent again and highly recommend!

The home is what every homeowner and homebuilders should aspire to create. Been all over the world and "Big Blue" is unmatched! Do you and your family a favor and book immediately.

We had a long delayed family reunion due to COVID 19 this Labor Day. Beautiful home, great house with unobstructed views of the Gulf. Upon arrival main floor refrigerator smelled of fish. When you opened frig the smell permeated the whole house. Called housekeeping - comment was we thought fish smell would have been gone by now, indicating that they knew of it and hadn`t come back to alleviate the smell. Had to unload the interior of the refrigerator while housekeeping wiped down with bleach/water/soap. Smell of bleach masked fish smell for awhile but smell came back and stayed for 5 of the 7 days of rental. Ice from ice-maker, uncovered food and anything else in the fridge smelled of fish. Ice was unusable and got by on bags of ice out of ice chest for the entire stay.
Asked housekeeping to come back out and never got a person to respond except through text. Barbecue grill was filthy and had to be thoroughly cleaned before we could use. Dead bugs were prevalent in master and main floor - exterminators must have just sprayed. No live bugs - just dead ones that had not been swept up. House is an incredible vacation home but Turnkey Mgmt is very difficult to
deal with. Tried on several occasions to speak with supervisors to address the situation - none would answer or return calls. Under different management and housekeeping we would return - house is that nice but cleaning, maintenance of the property of this caliber is not in their wheelhouse.

The pictures were accurate. The location is great (close to the beach access, great view). House was clean, everything worked. Zero complaints. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We have rented homes every 2 years for our large family group of 10 adults and 6 grandkids. Everyone agreed this was the best one yet. Having an elevator to take up bags and groceries to the 3rd floor kitchen / main living area was a huge plus. 2 of the couples and all the kids stayed in the 4 bedrooms on the second floor. The boys loved their bunk room, which became gaming central. The 3 girls were great in their twin bed room with pull out trundle bed. Both rooms were across the house from the parents 2 rooms, so no issues with noise from the kids rooms. The 2 other couples were on the 1st and 4th floors. Every level had outstanding views off a porch, and from 2-4 you looked out at a beautiful pond, sand dune and ocean, as well as the golf course. The main living area had a dining table that held us all, as well as bar seating for another 4 people if needed. The only thing we would add to the kitchen was a second dishwasher. With out group, we were running it daily, and sometimes twice. Having the 6 person golf cart was a bonus, and we rented another to move our crew around. The pool area was great, and we pre-rented 2 bungalows next to each other for 2 of the days, to be able to get out of the sun. We also had umbrellas and chairs set up for the adults every day at the beach, another huge plus. We had a short 3 hour period one day when the AC quit working on the 3rd floor, but Turnkey walked us through trying a few things to fix it, then getting an AC Company there to repair what ended up being a bad thermostat. It was repaired within 3 hours of our call. Port Aransas still has the feel of a small beach town, versus some to the more upscale spots in the Seaside / Watercolor area of Florida we had rented in a few years back. Plenty of good restaurants, and the Black Marlin and Reds at Palmillo Beach Club were very good. They also brought the food to the pool and even the beach if you wanted it. I bet we return here soon.

We have a very large family and as it has grown through the years, we`ve had a challenge finding a beach house with enough room and at the right location. Not any more! Big Blue really fit our needs. It is spacious with outstanding finishes. We had enough space to spread out and even have alone time. The 4 floors of stairs really gives you a workout, but the elevator was a nice amenity. Overall, EXCELLENT place!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This home is absolutely spectacular. The view of the dunes and the gulf, the spacious rooms, the multiple living spaces with room to spread out, the luxurious finishes, the sweet welcome basket and great service. Every time I thought “It would be great if there was a ..... ”. I opened a drawer or door and there it was. We all agreed we would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed here for a small company retreat. Everything was clean and the house is beautiful. Everyone had their own space and convenient to beach and town. The community pool and golf course were great. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Carolyn D. Oct 2020
This was our 25th annual trip and Covid made New York impossible so we decided to drive from The Woodlands to Port Aransas and stay at this fabulous home! It was absolutely perfect and TurnKey was always available. There so much space, everything is wonderfully decorated, our private chef was perfect—we highly recommend it!

Amazing home! I can`t express enough how perfect this home is. Their attention to detail from color choices, decor, furniture, high end sheets, towels, any and every pot, pan, dish, cups, utensils, pretty much anything you should need they supplied for us.Each floor had a beautiful balcony to enjoy that fresh air with a cup of coffee.There are 4 floors so the use of the elevator came in VERY handy! The pool is just a stones throw away form the home, so it was nice to go to after a day at the beach.The home provided a 6 person golf cart, which we really appreciated.The golf cart ride to the beach was maybe a minute drive. We took advantage of having the Beach Club set up chairs and umbrellas for us for a very minimal price. They also offer food service from their two restaurants while you are on the beach if you wanted.We truly had a wonderful stay in Port A and I have to say it was because of this lovely home and its location to beach and downtown. We DEFINITELY recommend staying at Big Blue and I don`t see us staying anywhere else! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house was great. We enjoyed it during the Corona virus, so it offered a nice sanctuary from the world. The kitchen is was top notch for a rental. Lots of space, great views of the gulf, and a big golf cart for getting around locally. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

3 generations had a great week despite the weather. They provided more than we expected with a welcome pack including drinks in the fridges. Sand castle tools with the very nice golf cart in the garage. Every floor (4) is a designer showplace. There is literally nothing you need to bring but your toothbrush and swim suit...and some groceries. The gopher was busy and fun to watch altho I`m sure the owner hates them! Loved sitting on 3rd level deck and just watching the surf roll in. The elevator is a lifesaver with the groceries and luggage. Plenty of room for everyone to have their space especially when your confined inside with rain. Had a great time, will def rebook this place !
