Private Homes house description

This remarkable 3BR/2BA family beach house is just two blocks from the epicenter of Port Aransas and minutes to a beautiful sunny beach. Our spacious living room features a large wrap-around comfy couch and a loveseat that face the large, mounted 40” HDTV. The living area flows into the kitchen and dining room --you’ll love the unique floor. Prepare a lovely meal in our updated, gourmet kitchen and gather around our dining table that can easily accommodate six people to enjoy it. Just down the hallway you will find our three bedrooms and two full bathrooms each with shower/tub and toilet. The master bedroom has a queen bed, his and hers closets, and a 20” TV. The second bedroom has a luxurious queen bed, his and hers closets, ceiling fan and a CD player. Our third bedroom has two sets of twin bunks, a drawing table, and a large closet with an area full of games and crafts supplies. The private outdoor space makes this house a dream and ideal for stargazing at night. We have two brick patios, one is a screened-in porch, or you can relax in our hammock and enjoy the lush tropical plants in our well-manicured, fully fenced yard. Only minutes from the beach, the pier, and the finest dining and shopping in Port Aransas, this is the perfect place to stay if you want to be close to all the action.

We are located approximately a five minute walk the beach and five minute drive to town which is easy to get to and offers great shopping and restaurants. Port Aransas is on the very northern tip of Mustang Island at the intersection of Harbor Island and St. Jo's Island. It is an eco-tourism area, with lots of wildlife including a huge variety of migratory birds. Bay and deep sea fishing is excellent with many charter boats available in the marina. Half an hour away is the USS Lexington and right next door is the Texas State Aquarium. If you are a golfer, you can grab your clubs and head over to the Palmilla, an Arnold Palmer Signature Course, just down the road. This course offers greens on both sides of the highway with a cart-bridge that connects them. The club offers a Pro shop and snack bar. Schlitterbahn Waterpark is scheduled to open a new park at the south end of the island this spring (2015). It is only a 20 minute drive down the island and offers entertainment for the entire family.

                  If you’re looking for a beach vacation for the entire family including the dog, look no further. Port Aransas is an economical Gulf Coast beach town ideal for a weekend escape from the daily grind. The small town has a big atmosphere with plenty to do. Enjoy the large beaches and calm waters which are ideal for families. Go fishing on a private charter. Shop or dine in one of the eclectic shops and restaurants.

                  Pack light when you load the car for your trip to this home. This vacation rental home has all the beach gear you need. It is well equipped with a cooler, wagon, beach chairs and beach toys. Man’s best friend is welcome at the rental, so use the extra space in your car to bring your dog. He can accompany you at the beach, relax in the shaded, fenced back yard or admire the wall art of stuffed animals that fell prey to a prior guest.

                  The hosts are charming and accommodating. They quickly respond to emails and phone calls. They will even arrange for reservations at their favorite restaurant where everyone knows their names and the food is excellent. The owners ensure you have everything you will need during your stay. To help your children remember their stay, they allow them to pick a departing gift from the toy chest.

                  Manager info

                  About: We have been Big fans of the island ever since we brought our first baby here 20 years ago (oh my, how time flies!). We have remodeled and updated everything since purchasing our house is 2007. We enjoy sharing our 'Island Getaway' with our renters and especially enjoy the families that return to make our home their family's vacation spot. We welcome You and Yours to enjoy the best of the Texas Riviera from our Island Getaway!

                  Why Private Homes:
                  After spending a span of time in Port Aransas during an internship, we decided that this was the town to begin looking for our 'getaway' place. As luck would have it, the right place and the right timing coincided and we found the ideal spot for a relaxing quick-getaway or a longer stay. Our place was first and foremost built for a family to live in, not just stay for a few days, and you can feel that from the moment you enter the gate (just like we did). This house gives off a warm inviting feel that just seems to melt the cares away. We have definitely found the most relaxing spot in one of the friendliest towns on the Texas Riviera!
