Left on 06/14/2015 for a stay in April 2015
Condo was perfect, lots of room, excellent that each bedroom has adjoining bath/shower. Great balconies for enjoying the views, and right next to the pool. Quiet end unit, slept like babies. Location is so cool, close to everything Port A has to offer. Loved using the grill, had fun with the billiard/game table. No complaints, but be aware of only 2 parking spots. Will be back soon!
My husband and I, along with his parents took a family vacation to get away from the West Texas Dust Bowl weather.
The house we stayed in was super clean and nicely laid out. It's walking distance from the beach and many restaurants. It is literally in the backyard of the Port Aransas High School, so I don't know what it would be like during the school year... relatively the same I suppose.
We are planning on coming back soon. :)
Place looks exactly like the pictures and is redone so incredibly well. It's perfect for a couple. Shower is a bit tight, but it gets the job done.
I have nothing negative to say about this little house. Great location to walk to bars/restaurants/grocery store and very close drive to the beach. Be aware that there is no oven.
World-class fishing, boating, and beaches define Port Aransas, TX, situated along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. A true year-round beach paradise, Port Aransas is the perfect place to embark upon outdoor adventure. Some of the recreational fun to be found includes golfing, fishing, surfing, and boating. The city is also home to breathtaking ocean and land wildlife, including the endangered whooping crane. It is the only spot in the United States that the bird can be observed at a close range. After a day of adventure in Port Aransas, sit down to a delicious meal followed by a night out on the town!
Some of the sights you will not want to miss include:
Lighthouse Lakes Trail: Spend a day on this sea kayak trail that goes through a beautiful estuary region. Established by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it is arranged as a network of integrated water trails for sea kayakers that span the Texas coast.
Dolphin Encounters: You can get a glimpse of the area's aquatic life while traveling on this group boat tour.
A Celebration of Whooping Cranes: The Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce celebrates this rare bird in its annual festival, complete with birding tours by land and sea, as well as seminars from well-known animal specialists. Packed with crane festivities, the event caters to both children and adults.
Mustang Island State Park: Visitors can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors and some beach serenity here. There is plenty of room for hiking, mountain biking, and more.
Leonabella Turnbull Birding Center: Visit this birding center to observe unique birds within beautiful surroundings.
The University of Texas Marine Science Institute: People of all ages will enjoy seeing the many different species of marine life housed at this science institute. The display tanks include sea horses, oysters, eels, and other ocean animals.
Walk just minutes from your vacation rental to relax along white sand shores. Go fishing or hunt for crabs then retreat back to your condo or beach house at night and grill the day's catch on your back deck. If you are an outdoor enthusiast and want to become one with the natural surroundings, spend a night under the stars at Port Aransas campgrounds. When you are tired of roughing it in the great outdoors, simply return home to the luxury of your vacation rental!
