About 1/4 mile west of the beach. ( you can hear the waves breaking ) The beaches of the Texas coast are mostly accessible by car. Port Aransas has 18 miles of continuous ,wide open, drive-able beach. If you dont like crowds, you can cruise a few minutes and find plenty of uncrowded space. No four wheel drive is needed and most modern front wheel drive cars do just fine on the sand.
The Coral Cottage is in Royal Palms subdivision, a smallish development that is only a few years old. The subdivision is clean, fresh, safe and family friendly. The Beach is 1.5 minutes away by car. Restaurants are 1 minute away by car. The farthest drive to Port Aransas shopping, eateries and attractions is 5 minutes...on busy weekends!

Our vacation at The Coral Cottage was wonderful! The house was perfect for our family and we decided we will be back year after year. I was a little nervous when I decided to rent a house at the beach, but dealing with Mr. Adams was a pleasure. The house had everything we could have asked for including a wonderful Organic coffee from Nicaragua; the decor was excellent, the bedrooms, kitchen and living area were spacious and the location was perfect, quiet and secluded, but close enough to walk to other areas. We will definitely will be returning. On top of all, my refund arrived just four days after we return! Thank you David!

This is tough for me to write, considering I genuinely was expecting a great time at this home and was instead presented with something completely opposite. When we arrived, the first thing that threw us off was the location. After talking with some locals we found out that, for the price we paid, we could've stayed at a beachfront property.
Having a naturally optimistic attitude of 'you live, you learn' I decided to make the most with my decision to stay at the Coral Cottage. My family, that consists of two disabled persons and one infant, unloaded our vehicles and prepared for a good time. However, our good time was delayed because we had to clean before letting our young son on the floor. There were multiple types of pills that were scattered about the top floor of the home. When we tried to turn the lights on for further investigation, we found that the whole top floor was without electricity due to a flipped breaker. Then when my disabled mother and father tried to turn on their television, we had to contact the owner because the cable was suspended. By this time I was a tad annoyed, but still remained in good faith. After a quick trip to the beach, we came home to have a nice bath and that's when the leak happened! It poured from the upstairs to the lower floor where my father was sitting due to a missing gasket in the bathtub. I found this out when a plumber had to come over during our festivities the next day, a friendly man, but another interruption to our good time.
The cherry that tops it all is of course in the conclusion. When you glance at the description of how the Coral Cottage works, you'll note a 350.00 deposit plus a 100.00 cleaning fee that the owners states in his tenants agreement, "You do not have to spend your last few precious vacation hours giving the house a thorough clean. We will take care of that for you… " So, one can assume that you can leave dishes and dirty linens, the NORM right??? Ummm, wrong. The owner contacted us after we had left and claimed it was the dirtiest he's ever seen it and that the front door was left opened and his art blew off the wall. So that's a total of 450.00 that we lost when renting the cottage. As of today, we still haven't heard from the owner who refuses to explain his judgement or let alone prove it. I have to include this last part so that others won't have these false accusations affect their pocketbook as well.
I sooooo wanted to love this place, but I'm not too unhappy because we found another spot on flipkey.com=)

My family has stayed here twice and we can't wait to return! It's very relaxing and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and great for cooks. The house is very spacious even for a large group. We treasure the great meals and conversation that we've had around the kitchen table. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting a cozy and clean place to stay in at the beach.
