The 2nd story private balcony overlooks the property including one of the two pool areas and has a view of the Gulf. In the quiet of the early morning and evening, you can enjoy the sound of the surf. A short stroll across the boardwalk takes you to the sandy beach. Beach access is limited to resort guests only, there is no public access to the beach from Island Retreat. To assist with security, wrist bands and parking passes are picked up at the office on check-in.

Our condo in the Island Retreat Resort in Port Aransas offers the convenience and privacy of home with all the activities and benefits of a vacation destination.

If you are a 'Golfer' bring your clubs, you're 5 minutes away from a world class public golf course designed by Arnold Palmer.

If you are into 'Sports' there is a shuffleboard court, sand volleyball, basketball court, tennis court, horseshoe pits and 2 swimming pools on the property. Sports equipment can be checked out at the office or feel free to bring your own basketball, tennis racquets, and horseshoes. There is also a small playground for the children.

If you are a 'Fisherman' there is surf fishing, fishing from numerous piers and jetties or enjoy a private charter or offshore excursion. A fishing license is required and can be bought at any convenience store in the area.

'Nature' lovers can enjoy the many nature preserves, birdwatching, dolphin tours and other wildlife around the area. You can search for shells and sand dollars on the beach. The University of Texas also has a free educational facility with outdoor preserve.

Enjoy the 'Sightseeing' in the local area; there are lots of points of interest: Coast Guard station, Ferry Dock and ferry, Lighthouse, and more. A 30 minute drive to Corpus Christie offers other tourist activities such as a visit to the aquarium, a tour of the USS Lexington and other points of interest.

And don't forget 'Eating'-there is something for everyone-fine food to fast food and you can even get your own catch cooked to order. If you prefer to eat in, there is a grocery store a mile away. There is a bar b que grill for use at the condo.

After a busy day at the beach, relax in front of one of the 3 LED TV's with multiple cable channels. There are DVD players for each TV so feel free to bring your own favorite movie or there is a limited number of movies available in the condo. There is free Wifi access. If staying in doesn't suit you after the sun goes down, there are clubs, taverns, waterfront restaurants and live music to entertain you. If big city entertainment is more your style, downtown Corpus Christi is a short 30 minutes away.

And don't forget 'shopping.' Port Aransas has your typical small town stores, souvenier shops and other specialty stores. There is a trolley for public transportation to get around in Port Aransas. Corpus Christie has all the shopping a larger city has including major retail stores and malls with souvenier shopping and local specialty stores also. A short ferry ride can take you to Aransas Pass for more shopping if interested.

Our home is smoke free. Sorry, but you will need to leave your pets at home.

Booking requires 50% of the total due with the remaining balance due 12-15 days prior to check in. Cancellations must be made 21 days prior to arrival for refund less a $100 fee. There are no refunds for early departures. Maid service can be provided for you during your stay for an additional fee. Additional fees will be charged for damaged items or excessive cleaning needs.

Year Purchased: 2011

Why the Owner Chose Island Retreat:
Living in Kansas we needed a vacation spot to meet with family from Texas. What better spot than by the ocean in a family friendly resort town that offers small town living yet access to a larger city scene in Corpus Christi. What a great place to relax and make special memories with friends and family.
