Beachfront - One Bedroom - Waterfront - Mustang Island, Texas.
A true one bedroom, not a studio, water front condominium located on the first floor at the end of a small unit in the newly renovated Island Retreat II. Park your car and boat at the front door. Unload your belongings with ease… no stairs or elevator. Walk the path to the beach and enjoy.
The tiled living area is spacious, comfortable, and opens to your private patio. The day beds and sofa allow plenty of space for you to watch movies, enjoy music, relax, play games or read…
The private tiled patio, facing the Gulf, also faces east and provides an unobstructed view. You can enjoy the morning sunrises, benefit from the afternoon shade and the ocean breeze… The open green lawn in front of the patio provides an ideal location for your private playground and is shaded in the afternoon. You will find a croquet set and horseshoes in the hall closet.
The upgraded kitchen features tiled floors and countertops and is fully equipped with dishes, cookware, utensils…
Accommodations include a new “pillow top” king mattress and quality linens in the bedroom…. all for your comfort. The “day beds” will sleep two.
The colorful bath has “fluffy towels” you will enjoy when you come in from the Beach.
For beach activities just step out the patio to the boardwalk… don’t forget to take beach toys for the children and beach towels, we leave our beach chairs and toys in the closet for your use. Please return them for the next guest to enjoy. Returning from the beach you will find a outdoor shower at the end of the boardwalk.
A very important part of the beauty of this condominium is the very spacious grounds. It was designed to allow ample room for each amenity. Nothing is crowded. The many grassy areas and open lawns add to the quiet and tranquil setting. Swimming pool areas, tennis courts, barbeque grills, play grounds and picnic locations are all located in very spacious, open areas.....
Lighted Tennis Courts
Fish Cleaning Station
Board walk to Beach
Quiet, spacious open areas.
On your trip south to the condominium you will experience a free ferry ride across the Ship Channel which gets you to Port Aransas. Watch for dolphins that often play in the channel.
Port Aransas is a quaint fishing village with excellent restaurants, unique shopping, birding, art galleries, kayaking, surfing, deep sea fishing charters in the Gulf of Mexico, inland and bay fishing charters, windsurfing, parasailing, dolphin watching and more.
Rent a beach buggy and explore the island and all it has to offer.
If you enjoy “Fresh Sea Food” Port Aransas is your place. In the evening the fishing boats arrive in the harbor. It is great fun to watch them unloading and weighing the day’s catch. It is a prime time for you to pick up your favorite seafood and dine in your condominium.
Visitors Center is located near the Ferry Landing.
A 30 minute drive south to Corpus Christi, the largest city on the Texas coast, offers shopping malls, several museums, Texas State Aquarium, botanical garden, USS Lexington Air Craft Carrier, Baseball Park, amusement park… This is an easy, and exceptionally pleasant drive along the water at sunset.
We love our Condominium and hope you will as well!
Sorry, no pets or smoking inside the unit. Outside smoking is, of course, allowed.

Listing accurate regarding location. what we could see on photos was accurate, however bathtub left a lot to be desired. Oven filthy, windows and floor needed cleaning. sink tap had to be fixed.

Owner response: Guest comments indicate that condo was not clean. I am not sure what to say because I have had the same cleaning lady for the past 3 years and our guests have arrived to find unit clean, as is to be expected. The guests both immediately before this reviewer, ... the guests immediately after, and the many guests that she has prepared the condo for over the past year, have arrived to find the unit clean and ready for their arrival. I am reluctant to make any personnel changes because of this review when she has prepared the condo for so many guests who have been pleased with the cleanliness of the condo. I think it is also important to mention that she has prepared this condo for over 100 groups in the past 3 years who have been pleased. However, I will mention this to her, keep a close watch, and make a change if it is appropriate. The problem with the kitchen faucet was that the end piece apparently sprung a leak, which can happen on any given day without advance warning, it is just screwed on the end of the faucet to spread the water into a wider pattern. The guest sent an email upon arrival telling me of this problem and additional other complaints about burnt out light blubs. I immediately contacted the complex repair crew to have a look and make any repairs needed. Within a few minutes the guest sent me a follow-up email that the light bulbs were not out (he was using the wrong switch) and the faucet end he had gotten a new one for a couple dollars and screwed it on himself. I do want to insure potential guests and returning guests that we do preventative maintenance to keep breakdowns as infrequent as possible. I believe anyone can tell from the reviews posted over the years that breakdowns are out of the ordinary (knock on wood) and very minor. However, when something does break I take immediate action to remedy the situation. We take great pride in the condo, it's cleanliness, operation, and comfort. I am sorry to learn that this guest had issues that they felt warranted the review submitted but I want to insure future guest that I will continue to prepare a unit for our guest that is representative of the many other nice reviews from prior and returning guest of this condo.

We stayed for 4 nights in August and had a wonderful time in Port Aransas thanks to this home away from home. We had stayed in the Island Retreat community before but think that this unit is one of the best in the whole complex. The location is fabulous- end unit, first level, so close to the boardwalk, close to the pool and playground. Also the walk out patio is a huge plus. The unit is so spacious! When we first walked in we were amazed at how large it was. It was very clean and well maintained. This is definitely a place we would stay again when we return to Port A!

Owner response: Thank you for your kind review!
Very nice well maintained condo in excellent location! Owner is very friendly and helpful and takes great pride in her property! This resort has a security guard when you drive in which was an added bonus! The pools are sparkling clean! The tennis courts and playground very well maintained and right out your front door (pool too)! Bed and linens VERY COMFORTABLE! Walk out the back door to the boardwalk which leads to the beautiful beach. There is even an outdoor shower at the end of the boardwalk! Highly recommended rare find! Also recommend Coffee Waves for coffee, gelato and live music Fri & Sat nights.

We are human and so are the cleaning crews so if a mistake or problem is noted we try to immediately rectify the situation before other guests arrive. We always enjoy hearing from happy guests, thank you again and please come back to see us.
Very roomy and clean as described. excellent layout, nice condo as promised. Not thrilled about the deposit but understand the need. Everything worked and only very minor cosmetic issues existed.My family all liked it and plan to stay there again.

Owner response: Thank you for submitting a review. Our family takes great pride in offering a comfortable, roomy, well stocked, clean and affordable option for families to enjoy Port Aransas. We are always pleased to know that our guest enjoyed their stay. Also Guest reviews help other potential guest know that we have fairly represented the condo on the website. I know the security deposit is a bit scary but in two years we have only had to make deductions one time. We are fortunate that our guest take very good care of the condo. Be safe in your travels and We look forward to you and your family's return.
Good Condo....Great Price!!

What a great place!! You'll be hard pressed to find another condo like this for the price that's located directly on the gulf. Not the newest, but very nice, comfortable furnishings. Also had everything we needed for the beach! The complex itself has two huge pools, tennis and basketball courts, outdoor grills and more. Hope we can make it back in the near future!!

We had a wonderful long weekend trip and stayed at this condo. We found it just as described on VRBO....comfortable, roomy, great beds, well equipped, convenient to town but just away from crowds, clean, grounds well maintained, nice pool and tennis courts, but most importantly the best location for the beach!!! Bathroom was not new but was clean, nice, and functional. I will recommend this property to family and friends. I think my nephew would also love the spectacular golf course just down the street.

We had a good time in the condo at Port Aransas. This was our first time visiting PA, and we were very happy with the town/beach etc... There were a few issues with the condo, some of which the owner couldn't have prevented. When we arrived, there was a very large leak in the bathroom coming from the unit above, maintenence took care of it the next day, but it was a slight inconvenience. In drying up the leak, we used some of our bath towels, and come to find out, there was no towel service. The office stated since we rented directly with the owner, they didn't provide fresh towels. The owners book in the room stated we would receive fresh towels daily, we never did, and were forced to do laundry on our vacation. Finally, while trying to enjoy a nice evening sitting on the back porch, listening to the waves, the sprinkler system comes thru and soaks you down every 30 seconds or so. On the positive side, we had a great time, the proximity to the beach is unbeatable. The condo is roomy and comfortable. The Beds are very nice and comfortable. And you can't beat the price compared to other beachfront condos.

Owner response: Chad, I am sorry to hear about the water leak comming from unit above but glad to hear that office repaired it right away. The condo does not come with daily cleaning service but I wish the office would have noticed that the problem was generated by another unit and made fresh linens available to you. I will speak with them about this and timming of lawn sprinklers. So glad to hear that you found the condo and bedding to be comfortable and enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. It really is the best location for beach and town. Hope you will be back soon.
