Property description

Relax in our open, comfortable, condo, with 900+ sq ft that include a large living/dining/kitchen area and a spacious master suite. Vintage touches throughout the space make this a truly unique property. There is a round turquoise painted dining table with a retro metal hanging light fixture, rustic cupboards and vintage metal rocking chairs and garden style seating that complement the space without making it seem too precious.

With a down filled sofa, a pillow top king size bed and 100% cotton bedding, you'll be very comfortable. Checkout the fabulous door to the bathroom with retro style tile, a railroad luggage rack and full sized washer/dryer. Everything is there to make the cook happy in the kitchen as they prepare the days catch. Vintage outdoor seating allows a cozy spot for morning coffee or drinks and dinner at sunset on the huge private decks.

Sample herbs from the tiny garden including fresh mint and basil. Two televisions, one in the living area and one in the bedroom allow everyone to watch what they want, when they want. Only a short one block walk to the beach, bring along the beach chairs and toys provided. This cozy, unique condo will make you want to come back again and again. We offer a 10% discount to repeat renters!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Jerry and Becky Witte have owned this condo for 8 years. It has become a relaxing spot to get away from the stresses of everyday life. Lovingly restored by our own hands, it has a special place in our hearts. Jerry has done all of the carpentry and tile updates and I have added the comforts of home through antiques and decorative touches. We hope you enjoy our home away from home.

Why the Owner Chose El Cortez Villas:
We love the feel of Port Aransas. It's casual, not pretentious and has an ease about it that many beach towns have lost. Being able to still have fires on the beach or wine at a fancy restaurant in the same place makes this special. El Cortez is peaceful, friendly and relaxed. The outdoor plantings are beautiful and the one block walk to the beach is easy and fun.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You'll love the pool located right outside the front door or use the grilling area to cook up seafood or steaks while you place cards or a game of chess at the nearby tables. Hit the tennis courts or play volleyball on the property.
