Property description

Thanks for checking in on this condo! I'm actually staying in it temporarily since I've moved to Port Aransas! As soon as I find a permanent residence, I'll put availability back on the site - I hope that will be soon, and before the wonderful summer season is over! Stay tuned if your plans are for June or later!

Fantastic views from both inside and out of this spacious, cheerful and well equipped condo. Awaken to beautiful views of the beach and bay WITHOUT getting out of bed!! Not many properties in the area offer views in BOTH directions! Head down to the beach via the convenient boardwalk, or unload your car quickly since the condo is located adjacent to both elevator and stairs. HUGE covered balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the early morning breezes and beautiful sunsets!! Two pools - ONE HEATED in the winter - mean you can take a dip before or after you hit the beach for a morning walk, evening stroll or both! Recreation room on site is a great place to have a get-together with your new Port A friends.

Condo has pleasant and colorful furnishings, complete with queen bed and dresser in separate sleeping area and full living area with sleeper sofa, dining/game table seating four and breakfast bar. Watch new flat screen TV and look out at the beach - cook your daily catch and look out at the beach - play cards and look out at the beach - catch up on email or work and, yep....look out at the beach!!! Fully equipped kitchen makes cooking a breeze, and if you want a break - just take a short drive into Port A or visit the sights in Corpus Christi.

Large laundry/storage room with full-size washer dryer, pegs for hanging your stuff, and storing your beach equipment. Covered parking helps keep the car cool between trips to town or into Corpus!

Great restaurants and shopping in Port Aransas - a couple of nice art galleries as well. My favorites, La Playa, Venetian Hot Plate, Pelican Club, Giggity's, Port A Pizzeria; Susan Castor Collection, Cita, Mustang Island Art Gallery.

There are great places near the wharf to watch the boats and fish come in, watch the sunset and enjoy the view. Take a cruise to watch the dolphins, explore the bay or go fishing - morning or night. Play a round at Newport Dunes, or rent a dune buggy and cruise the beach and town! Visit the charming local historical museum - very well done!

Stay busy or slow down and relax - it's all in Port A!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: I've been going to Port A since I was a kid, and grandkid of Winter Texans from the midwest. I love the cozy, friendly, quaint and unspoiled town of Port Aransas, the fantastic beach, the cute shops, great selection of restaurants, the ferry, the fishing and just hanging out with friends, family or alone. I'm a real estate broker, and enjoy sharing our condo with others who want a casual and fun getaway.

Why La Mirage:
Great space for the money, fantastic view - it's unusual to have both Gulf beach and bay views from one property. Unusual also to have a heated pool in the winter, so Winter Texans really like that amenity....two pools, a short boardwalk, covered parking, not far from town and close to other properties where family/friends own condos. Third floor location means no noise from above!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is extremely easy to unload and load your vehicle, since the condo is immediately adjacent to both stairs and an elevator, although there is not a noise problem. I love to leave the draperies open at night and wake to the view, without even sitting up in bed! I enjoy cooking a meal and being able to look out at the beach and see the changes in the light and colors as the hours go by. It is a very comfortable condo and I can work on my laptop or watch a movie, or eat a meal, or play a game with friends and the view is always there. On clear days and evenings you can see downtown Corpus Christi from the deck, which is HUGE. The laundry room is large enough to provide extra storage and the condo easily sleeps 4 people in the queen size bed and sleeper sofa. You could have a child sleep on the floor and not step on them!
