Private Homes house description

Feel the gulf breezes from the upper deck at Rutan's Retreat! This cute beach house has everything you will want in a beach getaway: lots of open spaces inside to relax and kick back after a day at the beach. There is a dining area with table seating a nice breakfast bar area, where the family can oversee the preparation of your 'catch of the day'. A comfortable sofa and lounging area with television round out the relaxation area. The main bedroom upstairs has a queen bed with ceiling fan. A 'jack and jill' bath insures privacy for all guests. There is a shower, but 2 sinks and 2 stools.

Add the optional bedroom downstairs unit for a small fee and sleep an additional 4 persons. Downstairs has another dining area, kitchenette with microwave and mini refrigerator, a bath with shower, and a sleeping area with a queen 4 poster bed, television and two more twin beds. Both the front door and bedroom door open out onto the carport area where there is picnic table.

A Bar-B-Q is provided downstairs and you will really enjoy having that covered carport area to shade you from the sun and enjoy al fresco dining all day long.

There is a fenced yard! Also extra parking for your boat!

Rutan's Retreat is just a short walk to the beach. Located on eleventh street which runs parallel to the Gulf Beach, you can access the beach easily from Avenue G either by foot or by car. We gladly provide beach towels and beach mats for our guests as well as a few beach chairs. Our closet is also stocked with games and activities for fun in the evening.

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.

                          A slice of beach is seen from the porch and front deck, but the sea breezes are evident and plentiful daily. If you love watching people, this is the perfect house. This house is great for large families with young children which you would like to separate from the rest of the families OR a more mature couple who would like to get up and fix their own coffee in the morning, this is the perfect home since the downstairs unit has its own kitchenette.
