Perfect offseason weekend getaway at Mila's Retreat. House is as advertised in pictures and the space of the home is incredible in person. It's cozy and clean. Beds are comfortable. We enjoyed hot chocolate under the stars in the courtyard. Great set up. We love Port A and it was nice to enjoy the town without the summer crowd. Restaurants were easy to get into.

Let me start off by saying that I usually don't leave reviews, unless a place really leaves a huge impression. My family and I usually go to Port Aransas about 2-3 times a year. We have stayed at Palmilla and other places around town. This is our 2nd time staying at Mila's Retreat and we have found our home away from home. There are a few things that I do not like to give up when I leave my house. I don't like to give up size and I don't like to give up my water softener. Mila's Retreat now has both. The water softener did not exist when we stayed back in May but we rebooked because of the size of the home. 5 spacious bedrooms (2 king beds is a plus) and 5 1/2 baths. Every room has a shower and restroom. We don't have to wait for a shower to become available while our family washes up and gets ready. I was amazed to see and feel the soft water the second time we stayed. Water is usually hard in Port Aransas. As silly as it sounds, a nice "soft water" shower feels great to be able to wash off sunblock/chlorine after a long day at the beach and the pool. Thank you for the hospitality and we will be back again.

Wow, wow, wow!
This was our first family visit to Port A and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! Mila's retreat was super clean, spacious, fully stocked, and peaceful! The kids ran around and had a blast. We rented a golf cart and went on to the beach and down the street to the candy store. The pool was amazing too! We look forward to returning!

We absolutely loved staying at Mila's Retreat. It's a beautiful and extremely spacious home. It was very clean and I was pleasantly surprised that they have Dyson air purifiers. The location is great! We spent the afternoons at the beach and appreciated that Palmilla offers set up for beach chairs and umbrellas. During the evenings we would take turns cooking and we enjoyed their kitchen. The floor plan is perfect and the courtyard is inviting! We rented a golf cart for our stay and most nights we would take it out to the beach. We all loved sitting by the fire, making s'mores, and listening to the waves. It was majestic. After a long day it was nice to crawl into a comfortable bed and watch movies. We all slept wonderful. We stayed 5 days and we all agreed that we wanted to stay longer. We will and can't wait to go back.

Beautiful and clean home in Palmilla. The location is perfect. Easy access to the pool and the beach. Beds are so comfortable. Air purifiers are a plus! The kitchen is stocked with every cooking essential. We loved Mila's Retreat and can't wait to book again.

This place is amazing. So much room. The kitchen is well stocked. Well thought of details like art, gas stove open concept. We used the bbq grill almost everyday. We especially appreciated the soft water since we know this area has terrible water. It has a reverse osmosis for drinking water as well so we just filled our bottles. They set up umbrellas and beach chairs. Best beach experience for sure
Erica M.Jul 2022
The kitchen and family room area was amazing! All the rooms were so spacious! I would definitely stay at Mila’s Retreat again!
Stacy M.Jul 2022
Very comfortable and clean rental in the Palmilla Resort Community. Close to the pool but definitely used a golf cart for beach access.
Norma C.Jul 2022
The floor plan was great. Love the kitchen being on the bottom floor. Well insulated so you don’t hear outside noise.. The kitchen is not equipped very well so you may want to bring some things from home.

Recently my family and I stayed at Mila's Retreat and let me tell you, it definitely lives up to its name. Everything about this beach house was perfection. It was super clean, conveniently located to everything....the beach, the pool, restaurants, and gas stations. The beds were very comfortable so we all slept great. It has some fun board games our family played while unwinding from the day at the beach and pool. The resort where Mila's Retreat is located has a nice and clean pool that we got to enjoy after the beach. We were able to rent a golf cart and took short drives into town in it. Visiting Port Aransas won't be the same if we don't stay at this beach house again. We all loved it and will definitely stay here again. It was truly a magical experience.
Victoria B.Jun 2022
This is a great place for a getaway. Close to the beach and close enough to town, central to everything you’d need. The house is gorgeous and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed from the second you walk in the door. Highly recommend staying here if you get the chance!

Mila's Retreat, the community and amenities, as well as the location surpassed all of our expectations. This home is perfect for a group or if you'd like to treat you and your significant other to plenty of room. The decor is sophisticated but not stuffy, beachy but not cheesy. Our relatives from out of the country were amazed at the size and our two littles wanted to move in! The bunk bed room was the perfect little sanctuary for them. We spent loads of time on the patio, enjoyed the gorgeous community pool, took a short walk (even for me being 7 months pregnant) to the beach and everything was perfect. I wish we could have stayed longer and can't wait to return to make more memories. I also felt very safe, which is a huge deal for me.
Amanda R.May 2022
Our family thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully decorated home. It had all amenities you could ask for and was immaculate. The house was incredibly spacious and we really enjoyed the luxurious furnishings. The location was perfect. Our favorite part of our stay was the location near the beach and the how comfortable and relaxing the home was. Everything was extremely clean and welcoming. There was a convenient courtyard complete with grill and every room had balcony access. There was a lot of natural light which made this an amazing beach oasis. It by far exceeded our expectations.
Brian P.Mar 2022
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The location is amazing...1 block from the pool and two blocks from the boardwalk for the beach. T.V.'s and WIFI worked great so I was able to do a little bit of work. We were thrilled with a movie night at the pool. We decided to book it again for summer. Looking forward to it.
Victoria F.Mar 2022
The house was immaculate, looked exactly like the photos, and the location is great. It is within a 2-minute walk to the pool...great for the kids! It has everything you need...towels, laundry detergent, kitchen items. Just bring dishwasher pods. Check in was a breeze, check out was just as easy. We did have some trouble with the security code, it didn't work. But Vacasa customer service was quick to give me an alternate code that worked. There was also a power surge that knocked out the power to the garage door for a bit. I contact customer service for help again and they were quick to respond. Overall a great stay, the kids did not want to leave. They especially loved the bunk room! We enjoyed our stay, thank you!
Victoria, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We apologize for the unexpected delay in getting you checked in and the inconvenience the power surge caused the garage door. We hope that after another code was issued and the local staff addressed the garage door issue, the remainder of your trip unfolded with ease. Thank you for staying with us.

Beautiful spacious home in a great community in the perfect location.
Sylvia N.Mar 2022
Great location…walking distance to the beach & pool…beautiful new home! We loved the open floor plan! It’s vast in size making it easy to entertain the whole family! I love to cook and the kitchen set up is great. The dining table fit my family comfortably. Enjoyed our master bedroom and the kids loved the bunk beds. We also enjoyed having drinks out in the courtyard. Very relaxing.
Aubrey E.Mar 2022
This home is beautiful and spacious. We really enjoyed the living area since my family was able to lounge on the couch and watch movies. We are a big family so it was a plus that every room has it's own bathroom. The home is close to the boardwalk so we were able to get to the beach easily. We all can't wait to stay again. Loved it!
