We really enjoyed our stay at The Blue Buoy! Was a great location in a gated community. We had everything we needed for a great vacation. The only thing I would suggest as an upgrade for the owners... since this is an upstairs unit, some sort of lift for our luggage would have been amazing. We really struggled carrying our suitcases up those stairs! We will use Starkey Properties on our next trip to Port A!

Overall the rental experience was excellent. The unit is in a very cute and inviting neighborhood with perfect proximity to the beach. The outdoor features were exactly as advertised, but a few of the deck chairs were broken and need to be replaced. The interior provided everything we needed to be comfortable. The only issues encountered were the stove top drip pans were in desperate need of a deep cleaning...maybe the point of being unusable due to generating so much smoke it caused the smoke alarms to go off. WiFi was also a bust after trying to connect on 4 different devices. I called to report the issue, but answering service picked up and no follow-up call was ever received. Although it was an inconvenience, it wasn't a dealbreaker since it forced the group to fully engage and not be so distracted. I would definitely recommend this rental, but hope the issues are quickly addressed and resolved so future guests can have a safe, comfortable, and hassle-free time.

My family and I booked this rental last minute for Sandfest and it could not have been more perfect. The Village Walk neighborhood is super cute and very well kept. We rented a golf cart from Silver Sands Golf Carts which was a five minute walk from where we stayed and really came in handy considering Beach Access 1A was right down the street. Sandfest was right in our backyard. But since there is not an accessible public boardwalk to the beach, the cart was perfect. Fun shops and food were also just minutes away. The house offered just what we needed. It is basically an upstairs apartment with all the essentials. The only thing we struggled with was parking our Ford F250 truck in the driveway. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to coming back in the future.

Absolutely the best!! Beach house was perfect for our time there. Weather wasn't the best but because of the closeness to restaurants, the beach, shops, etc.,we were able to rest, relax and enjoy. Highly recommend this property. Be prepared to climb LOTS of stairs!

We're glad you were still able to enjoy all the shops and restaurants despite the weather! Thanks for staying with us.

Had a great time. Location was good. Staff was friendly. The place could use some dusting. The stove had oil in the burner pans that caused smoking. Some of the dishes were dusty. Maybe people don't go to cook when on vacation, but I do.

Thank you for letting us know about the kitchen Maria. Please feel free to call the office next time so we can take care of any issues right away. We are so glad the rest of your stay was enjoyable and we look forward to having you in the future!

Village Walk is a very nice, clean, well maintained community, but the parking situation is ridiculous. The driveways are too short to fit a full-size pickup truck, and the property HOA "police" left warnings on windshields of vehicles extending past the driveways. More parking is needed.

Manager's Response

Brian, sorry to hear you had such a difficult time with parking. We hope the beautiful home, pools and close by beach made up for it! Let us know when you're ready to come back to Port A!

I went to Port A with my daughter and her 6 year old and 8 month old, and the Blue Buoy was perfect for us. It was a 2 minute drive to the beach, which was perfect for the load we had every time. And it was a minute walk to the pool, which came in very handy too. The condo was clean and we didn't have any problems. The property is in a great location for a short drive to town, but away from the traffic. We also enjoyed the bon fire/Smores get together on the beach sponsored by Starkey Property Management. Great time had by all!!

Thank you for sharing your review of the Blue Buoy in Village Walk. We enjoyed having you at the bonfire and so happy that you had a great vacation. We hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon!

My friend and I go to Port A every year and we're always trying new places to stay. Blue Bayou was perfect for 2 adults, its very clean and really comfortable. I haven't slept that good in a long time. It sleeps 4 but I couldn't stay there with my 2 kids (9 & 15yrs) & my husband. The 2nd bedroom is too small and the couch doesn't fold out but that's a personal preference. As it says in the description, there are limited kitchen utensils & plates. We have a tradition the first night of having fresh shrimp, so we bought a stock pot & left it to add to the collection. The neighborhood is cute but a little tight for larger vehicles but everything worked out perfectly. We like to use the pool in the afternoon and it was right down the street from the condo (bonus). Fair warning... when exiting the property through the side gates DO NOT pull up close to the gate. One side swings in and the other out. I had to reverse quickly so the side that swung in didn't hit my car. So my only complaint would be there should be a sign, "stop here for gate." We would definitely stay again. Thanks for a great long weekend.

Our family of 4 enjoyed staying at The Blue Buoy. It was very clean and had plenty of space for us all. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck drinking coffee and taking in the salty air. The location was perfect as we rented a golf cart for our entire stay and easily accessed all our favorite spots. Most of our time was spent at the beach and enjoying the Port A life. Starkey PM was wonderful and their app was awesome!

My husband, myself and two-yr old son had a GREAT time at this property in Port A. It was the perfect size for a small family. I cooked dinner 4 out of the 5 nights and didn't mind not having a dishwasher at all. The place is decorated in tasteful beach theme, everything was clean when we arrived, and the community spaces were also well maintained. The "neighborhood" was super quiet and felt safe too. We will def be back!

A recommendation to the owners, I wish there was something listing activities to do. I've stayed at other VRBO properties and I've always loved reading and trying owner recommendations. Also, having little shampoos and olive oil would have put this place #1 out of all my VRBO -size olive oil doesn't exist :(

One more thing to note, yes it's a short drive to the beach...or a short walk. We were totally ok with this because we had a two year old, a canopy, beach gear, toys, etc. it would have been impossible to take all of that over the dune walkways.

The place was clean, nicely organized and spacious for a family of three. Great location, secure and convenient access to local Port A attractions and restaurants and beach access is only a few blocks away. Only draw back was that there was no dishwasher. We only stayed for a few days and ate most dinners out so we didn't have to hand wash too many dishes other than glasses and breakfast dishes.

Great Stay!
