Property description

Our beautiful oceanfront Mustang Island vacation condo features a spectacular unobstructed view of the Texas Riviera. The uncrowded, silky sandy beach is only footsteps from your door. You are just a leisurely stroll over the boardwalk to sand between your toes!

A magnificent sunrise greets you every morning as you start your day with a cup of hot coffee on your private tiled patio. Marvel at the pelicans and the seagulls as they soar past your vantage point with wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows on the NINTH floor. Miles of undeveloped beach and dunes beckon you, and there is no crowd to spoil the experience. And when night falls, the sound of the ocean surf will lull you to complete relaxation.

The Sea Gull enjoys a quiet and relaxed environment. Because many of the units are owner-occupied, you encounter fewer people on the beach and at the pool and other common areas. The walls and floors are thick and well insulated, so your neighbors won’t disturb you. It’s a leisure and family resort, far from the madding crowds of South Padre. Yet, if you seek a livelier environment, you are only a short distance away from the friendly fishing town of Port Aransas (with its great restaurants) or the thriving city of Corpus Christi.

Our top-rated, two-bedroom condo is a great getaway for couples, families, or old friends. We are close to the elevators, which is great for those with limited mobility--or in inclement weather.

You've probably come for the beach... It's just over the boardwalk! Our beach is relatively uncrowded, and complimentary shade tents and chairs are available in the summer (on a first-come basis). Rinse showers are available on the boardwalk to rinse off the sand and salt. Please bring your own beach towels!

When it’s time to cocoon after a long day of fun in the sun, relax in the serenely decorated living area with its 46-inch flat screen TV (with high-def cable, internet-enabled) and DVDs... Or enjoy one of the many board games you'll find in the hall closet. You'll also enjoy the free high-speed internet and laptop desk.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and is very well-equipped--including coffee pot (you can also help yourself to FREE morning coffee in the lobby), toaster, blender, crockpot, bakeware, and spices. There's a large pantry for groceries, so you'll have plenty of storage.

Our condo features ceramic tile throughout, except for the carpeted bedrooms. The two bedrooms, each decorated with an Asian flair, offer TVs, blackout shades, ceiling fans, and pillow-top mattresses. The bedroom windows overlook Wilson's Cut, the Corpus Christi Bay, and in the distance, downtown Corpus Christi. Get a good night’s sleep, and wake up tomorrow to enjoy another day in Paradise!

The inviting swimming pool is just steps from your door, yet you are not subjected to 'pool noise.' Enjoy the large hot tub (with waterfall feature), as well as the tennis and basketball court. In the basement, you'll find fitness equipment, pool table, ping pong table, and vending machines (as well as a laundry area). During the summer months, the kids can take part in the FREE Children’s Summer Art Program.

The front desk and maintenance are available 7 days a week/24 hours a day. Housekeeping provides fresh towels daily. If you have questions or problems--or need ice or pool towels--you can just contact the front desk!

If you fish, you have just discovered a treasure! We are 'fisher-friendly', with a fish-cleaning station, grilling area, ample free boat parking, and easy access to the water. 'Wilson's Cut' is just across the road, granting you access to the Bay and the Gulf. This area is also on a major bird migratory path, so you can enjoy some of the best bird watching in the country.

If you golf, you're only five minutes away from Palmilla Beach--an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course--truly a 'links' course. If you like fine dining, you'll find it in both Port Aransas and Corpus Christi. All kind of water and wind sports await your discovery--or just enjoy the uncrowded beach right outside your door.

Come for a weekend or come for the winter, and you’ll find that Sea Gull 906 will welcome you. Kick back, set your internal clock to Island Time, and understand what we mean when we say, 'If you’re lucky enough to be on The Island, you’re lucky enough.'

If it’s time for a great beach getaway, we’d love for you to enjoy our home away from home. If you have questions, please email us. To book directly, call 1-800-543-0818 or 1-361-749-4191 anytime (24/7) and tell the friendly folks at the desk that you want to 'get your kicks in Sea Gull 906'!

YOU MUST MENTION THIS IS A VRBO RENTAL AND ASK FOR UNIT 906 TO BE GUARANTEED OUR CONDO.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: The Sea Gull sits at about the center of Mustang Island, about 10 miles north of Padre Island and 7 miles south of Port Aransas. (See a map.) Approximate Driving Times ------------------------- Corpus Christi Airport: 1/2 hour Austin: 4 hours San Antonio: 3 hours Dallas / Ft. Worth: 7 hours Houston: 3 1/2 hours Denver, Colorado: 18 hours Detroit, Michigan: 24 hours From Corpus Christi, follow South Padre Island Drive and drive over the Laguna Madre via the JFK Causeway. Turn left onto State Highway 361 and drive about 10 miles to the entrance of the Sea Gull Condominiums on the right. Private planes may also access the small airport, Mustang Beach Airport. Run by the city of Port Aranasas, this unmanned airport has a 3,500-foot lighted runway which has been newly repaved.

Why Sea Gull:
We first discovered and fell in love with Port Aransas in late 2004, and by mid-2006, we had invested in our own little piece of this undiscovered gem called Mustang Island. We are fortunate to be able to realize our dream of living in two worlds--mountains and ocean. We live in Colorado in the summer and Mustang Island for the winter. While we're away, please enjoy our home away from home! Bob & Carolyn, Weston, CO
