We invite you to the Horizon Dunes Oceanside Retreat Condo at Island Retreat I in Port Aransas, Texas on Mustang Island. Up to 7 individuals can easily enjoy this second story two bedroom/two bathroom newly renovated property that is the premier vacation destination to let your cares melt away as you view the breathtaking gulf waters from the private balcony. Whether you are lazing on the warm summer sand, fishing with friends, or enjoying a romantic getaway, the Horizon Dunes Oceanside Retreat has everything you need to feel like your home-away-from-home.

Featuring a newly renovated and fully equipped kitchen, new paint, furnishings, and modern electronics, the HDOR condo has every amenity to make traveling effortless. Updated bathrooms, ceramic and wood floors add to the comfort of living by the beach. The master bedroom features a comfortable Tempurpedic king sized bed with an adjoining full bathroom (shower and tub). The second bedroom has two full beds. There is a second full bathroom in the hallway.

The Horizon Dunes Oceanside Retreat Condo is located in the Island Retreat Condo Resort, which is nestled in the quaint and comfortable ocean side community of Port Aransas, Texas. The condo is also conveniently located by many great restaurants and fun activities for all ages. If you are looking for big city life, Corpus Christi is just a short 30 minute drive, three hours from San Antonio, and four hours from Houston or Austin.

If you are looking for entertainment at your home-away-from-home, the HDOR condo features new flat panel 32' televisions in the living room and master bedroom. There are also DVD players, CD player, VHS, and stereo available. An iPhone/iPod docking station is available for you to listen to your favorite music! Free wireless internet is also provided! If staying in doesn't suit you after the sun goes down, there are clubs, taverns, waterfront restaurants and live music to entertain you.

Just a short stroll through the breezy dunes and across the private boardwalk takes you down to the warm sugar soft sand of the Gulf Shore beaches. Walk for miles and look for shells or enjoy a stroll on the pier.

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

The resort outdoor entertainment includes a shuffleboard court, sand volleyball, basketball court, tennis court, and 2 swimming pools on the property.

Fisherman can enjoy surf fishing, fishing from numerous piers and jetties or enjoy a private charter or offshore excursion.

Nature lovers can enjoy the many nature preserves, birdwatching, dolphin tours and wildlife around the area.
