Joey, Wanda, Ty and Harli just wanted to say thank you to Karen and Randy for providing us a beautiful Condo with ocean view for our vacation. We had the best one yet! 4 days in this beautifully decorated and comfortable condo allowed us to relax and rest. It was way more than we expected and close to beach, pool, laundry and town. Beds were comfortable and the balcony overlooking the beach provided us with a great way to end our days. Thanks again and we look forward to booking for next year.

We stayed at Island Retreat for a total of 4 days and had a wonderful time. It was very clean and well priced. It is the perfect location...beach view from the balcony and easy to get to any amenities in Port A. All we brought were extra towels and food. We barbequed on the grills outside one night and everything we needed in the kitchen was there. The facilities are so accommodating. We played tennis one night, basketball another and swam in the pools too. Of course we spent time on the beach as well, but there was plenty to do for the kids. We will most definitely rent again. Fun times making memories!

Can't wait to come back
Can't wait to come back
We stayed at Island Retreat for a total of 3 days and couldn't have asked for a better experience. It was very clean and very well decorated. The view from the balcony faces the ocean and is less than a five minute walk to the beach, and a very short drive into town. We bought fresh seafood and were able to cook our own meals conveniently since the kitchen had everything we needed. The staff in the office were very helpful and friendly and assisted us with any questions we had. We plan to come back next year and absolutely cannot wait!!!

Lovely Beach Getaway
Lovely Beach Getaway
I stayed at this property for 3 relaxing nights & could have easily stayed for 3 months! The decor is cheerful, and the location is wonderful! The boardwalk to the beach is just out the front door & around the corner of the unit. It was an easy walk to the water & close enough that I could run back to room if I needed something. The balcony was my favorite spot with a beautiful view of the dunes & water. I sat there each morning reading & watching the birds. The room was very clean with everything I needed. There are 2 pools on the property which looked nice & well kept, but that I didn't use. The Island Retreat property was very well maintained with nicely kept lawns & friendly assistance at the office. The condo has easy parking out front, there's a shower at the boardwalk to spray off the sand & it was very quiet. The only less than perfect thing was the air conditioner. It's an older, motel type unit & just didn't seem able to keep up. I like a cold room to sleep in though, so it's all dependent on taste. I probably could have added a fan & felt great, BUT it did not ruin my stay. I'd highly recommend a stay here. The location & price can't be beat. Sitting on the balcony, listening to the ocean & watching the waves just for 15 minutes will make you a very happy person!

The condo was as good or better than we had expected, exceptionally clean. We were there in January of 2011. Although the weather was not the best, the accommodations made up for it. We would recommend this unit to anybody looking for a wonderful time. We certainly intend to return.

About the owner: Randy loves to fish. He recently purchased a kayak to try a different approach to coastal fishing. I'm a painter focusing on water media. We both love to garden. Our focus is on totally organic. We grow a lot of our own food. We also have 12 pet chickens which are loads of entertainment and provide fresh eggs and insect control. We also enjoy riding the motorcycle through the Texas Hill Country
Why the Owner Chose Island Retreat:
This condo is such a great location, with such a wonderful view. I could just see people coming here and de-stressing. It's so close to the beach and pool, I knew anybody who stayed here would have a enjoyable time. We both just had a good feeling about this place, the energy is right. I love the sound of the ocean and the smell of the beach vegatation growing in the dunes and the view can't be beat
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I like being able to step out the door, turn the corner and have the beach just footsteps away. Also, having that balcony overlooking the ocean is just wonderful
