Sand Point house description
Thank you for your interest in Somewhere in the Sun. See details below including the slide show for information on Somewhere in the Sun.
Please note that we recently (January 2013) converted 1/2 of the garage into a second master suite. The remodel is finished and that additional bedroom is now available. The new master suite features a full bath with walk in shower, a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, and a small fridge and a king size bed. The house is now 4 bedroom / 3 bath. Please note that the new master has a private entrance from the outside and there are not inside stairs to the rest of the house.
It is just a short walk to the Sandpoint beach walk-over or the neighborhood pool when you rent this new, gorgeous, fully furnished, 3 story, 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with ocean and pool views and 3 outside decks.
This fantastic 3 story house has it all with stainless appliances, 6 top table, bar top, DVD/surround sound, wireless hi-speed internet, and flat screen televisions in every room! Perfect for a party of 8-10, it has 1 king, 2 queens, two twin beds (in the same bedroom) and 1 full size bed - an adorable full-sized Murphy bed (wall bed). It also has 2 twin inflatable mattresses and bedding for children to use.
The home is located just a few steps from the Beach Lodge, the only breakfast and hamburger joint on the beach in Port A. There is an outdoor shower for cleaning up when you come in from the beach.
The popular Sandpoint subdivision is in town and close enough to bike to town for shopping, restaurants, and other amenities. The pool, hot tub, beach walk-over, and park next to the pool are all available for Sandpoint homeowners and renters.
The home features gulf views from the second level deck and pool and panoramic gulf and channel views from the spacious third level deck. Along with the other amenities you also have use of the charcoal grill and picnic table. There are also beach chairs & beach towels that guest are welcome to use.
The floor plan for this home is: Entering the home on second level above the garage there is an open living, dining, and kitchen area. There are (inside) stairs from the back of the living room to a second level with 2 bedrooms which share a full bath with double vanities. The stairs continue up to the large master suite which has it's own balcony and access to a large rooftop deck. The master bath features double vanities and a walk-in shower. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed in one of the second level bedrooms, two twins in the other second level bedroom, and a full sized murphy bed in the living room. On the ground level there is a master suite with a king bed, a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, and small fridge and a full bath with a walk in shower. As detailed before the master suite on the ground floor has a private entrance.
The beach is about 300 yards from the house - there is a walking path and a beach walkover at the end of the subdivision. In the photo labeled 'view of neighborhood pool from spacious third level deck' on this website the beach walkover is located next to the green house in the background past the pool.
If you like this home but it is already booked for the dates you need or if you need more room please check out our other properties, the Costa Ventures Beach Houses, VRBO # 351988 or VRBO # 356438. They are pet friendly, 5 bedroom / 4 bath 2 story homes which sleeps 14 in each home. They are across the street from Somewhere in the Sun and two houses closer to the beach.
All beds in the home have either high-end Serta or Sealy pillow-top mattresses which are less than 4 years old - something our guests who have slept on inferior or old mattresses while on vacation really appreciate.
If you are interested in renting our beach house please fill out the form on the right side of this webpage. You will receive a reservation agreement detailing the total, taxes, and payment schedule and options to review.
There is no smoking allowed in the house. Pets are allowed by exception only and are subject to a non-refundable pet fee.

ReviewsWrite a review
The photos really don't capture how nice this place really is! We booked this house for a girls' getaway weekend for my sister's birthday - plenty of room for 12 people - kitchen is especially well-appointed - they even had a pastry brush! (i made a brie with puff pastry!) Owner was accessible and easy to work with, the house was incredibly comfortable and very clean, AWESOME deck off of 3rd floor master - perfect for watching the sunrise, and the first floor master is beautiful - very new and shiny! Unique likes: the bar cabinet in the living room; the Murphy bed; easy check-in/check-out. We had a lovely dinner at Roosevelts at Tarpon Inn - i highly recommend this place as well - it's tiny inside and not a menu suited for kids, but perfect for a nice dinner out for adults - you need reservations.

Perfect Vacation House!
Perfect Vacation House!
The house is in great condition, clean and stocked with everything you need for a wonderful stay. The beach is a very short walk, 2-3min from front door to water. The nearby pool is nice and the outdoor shower on the house was great for washing off outside after the beach. We will definitely stay here the next time we vacation in Port A.

Great Beach Get Away. Awesome Place
Great Beach Get Away. Awesome Place
This is the perfect beach getaway house. It has everything that you need just to pack your bags and hit the road. House is AWESOME! Very comfortable and more than enough room. On the top deck you can enjoy sun rises and sun sets while over looking over the roof tops out to the ocean. I would stay here a million times. Owners are very accommodating and try very hard to make sure your stay is comfortable. Somewhere in the Sun is overall just a great place to stay while in Port A.

About the owner: Somewhere in the Sun is one of two BC3 Ventures properties. My wife is from the Corpus Christi area and I am originally from the Austin area. We both grew up spending our summer vacations on Mustang Island enjoying the beach. After we married in Dallas we lived in Seattle and Scottsdale before returning to Texas to raise our children. One of the reasons we moved to Austin from Dallas was to be closer to the coast. We spent several summer vacations when our children were young traveling to different beaches including California, Florida, Alabama, the Carribean, and Costa Rica while always going to Port Aransas several times a year. While deciding where to vacation 4 years ago both of our children asked why we were going anywhere except Port Aransas since it was our favorite beach vacation destination and had everything we enjoy as a family. From that moment our goal was to have a beach house in Port Aransas. We built our home 2 years ago and have been enjoying our frequent stays there while renting our home to others who love Port Aransas, fishing, and the beach.
Why the Owner Chose Sand Point:
We chose Port Aransas because it is easily accessible by car or plane from Austin, Houston, San Antonio, or Dallas. We feel that Port Aransas is the ideal getaway as it has a casual 'beach town' feel with great dining, a nice beach, great fishing, and high end shopping while maintaining a small town feel. Port Aransas has many unique local restaurants and bars and there is not an abundance of high rise hotels and condos lining the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is about 300 yards from the beach. There are ocean views from the covered second level deck across the front of the home and panoramic ocean and channel views from the third level deck outside the master bedroom and the spacious rooftop deck. The rooftop deck faces the Gulf of Mexico and is a great place to gather in the afternoon and evening to enjoy the ocean breeze and views. The home is decorated in a 'Coastal Living' style with (faux) wood floors throughout, beadboard doors and trim, open cabinets in the bathrooms and kitchen, unique restored dressers and nightstands in the bedrooms, and decorations and artwork from local artist.
