Private Homes house description

Schlitterbahn is opening just 20 minutes south of us! Stay in Port Aransas and have the very best of both worlds. The wonderful beaches here have always drawn sun worshipers and beach lovers. Now if your family wants a waterpark experience, it is right in our back yard, too.

This Beach rental is going to be your HOME AWAY FROM HOME. The beautiful open construction of the dome lends itself to family gatherings. The open concept living area features a large open area for kicking back and watching television. Dining can be 'beachy formal' at the dining table or outdoor on the deck. Nicely appointed kitchen and a laundry area just off the kitchen for the guests use. (bring your own laundry supplies).

You will love the ambiance and views from the hilltop dome house. Skylights make the house sparkle with light and allow the stars and moon to light up your evenings, too. Large deck both front and back. Front deck overlooks the pool which is shared with the Cottage. French doors open off the great room and also off the master bedroom. Master has a super comfy KING bed!

There is one master bedroom downstairs with lots of storage and a desk area as well. More sleeping on a pullout sofa in the living room as well as a futon. Upstairs is another full bed and 3 twins. Prices listed are for six guests. This is a great property for large family groups as you can rent the dome house and the cottage if you need even more room.

Completed in Spring 2011 is our Bunkhouse. Can ONLY be rented by the Dome guests for additional sleeping. It is a stand alone 3rd bedroom for the Dome and is not included in the Base Price of the Dome but can be added for a nominal nightly fee. See photos 15 & 16. Separate abode with two sets of bunks, and TV and Frig. Contact beegee for info on the Guest Cottage in the Dunes, which is a separate rental on the other side of the pool. All total, the entire property can sleep up to 18. You can drive up to the dome house. There is one step up to the ground floor. Fully air conditioned.

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About: I retired from education in 2009. I had bought my first rental in 2007 and this lovely property became available. I have always loved this dome which is on the highest sand dune in Port A. It is also located right next door to my other properties and just a few steps from the beach! I hope that my guests can enjoy all that Port Aransas has to offer. It is my favorite place on Earth.

                      Why Private Homes:
                      Port Aransas off 11th St. is just a hop, skip from the beach. I live on property next door and this street is quiet yet in a family neighborhood. Lots of offstreet parking. You never have to worry about someone being around if you need extra supplies, a lightbulb, or attention in other areas.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This house couldn't be more well suited for family vacations. Nothing better than being close to the beach and having a pool at your disposal.
