Other Port Aransas Properties house description
While Hana House is very tropical named for a house in Maui, Surf Shack has a very colorful and beachy feel. The houses are located next door to each other, adjoined by a deck. You have the option of renting either house alone, or for a larger group take both together! Our attention to detail will make your visit one that you will want to repeat again and again.
These houses have a yard with a picnic table and grill and face a main beach road ONE BLOCK FROM THE BEACH! They have the constant sound of the ocean, and are located on the free trolley route.
In Hana house, there is one bedroom with queen-size bed AND a futon, bedroom two also has a queen-size bed, both complete with tropical Hillfiger bedding. A fully-equipped kitchen with bottled water and a cute breakfast bar. The bath has a walk-in shower and fluffy towels, and a living room with a queen futon.
In Surf Shack, there are two bedrooms with a queen bed in each and a sofa sleeper in the living room. Surf Shack also has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with a walk-in shower, and washer and dryer.
For those interested in a pool, the community pool is highly recommended - very clean and safe! It is a great place for adults and very young children with a 'sloped beach entry' and fun water features.

Our group of 15 college students had a wonderful time renting both the Surf Shack and the Hana House. The common deck and privacy fence make it easy for larger groups to feel connected. The location is awesome- a 5 minute walk from the beach! We appreciated the 2 charcoal grills as well as the abundant kitchen and cleaning supplies. The descriptions of the houses are very accurate- including the numbers the houses sleep. There is plenty of space to hang out, eat and cook. The A/C gets nice and cool- there are standing fans provided as well. Bedding is supplied for the futons. The outside hose is nice for showering off after the beach. Phyllis is very friendly, informative and easy to contact! I definitely plan on renting these houses next summer! :)

I've stayed at all three of this owners properties, they are well kept with attention to detail. Great location, easy walk to the beach if you want or sit on the front porch and listen to the surf. The large deck and porch are nice for morning coffee or evening wine. Love the picnic table and the BBQ pit are a nice added touch. I highly recommend either one or both for a family weekend full of fun. I will definately be going back every chance I get.

The location of the house was ideal and within walking distance to the beach. Overall though, the house wasn't in great shape. There was an inch on dust on the ceiling fans, and on the decor. The kitchen was stocked, but the frying pans were in very bad condition. There was a missing shelf in the fridge that we found sitting on top of the fridge, covered in dust. We still put it in the fridge though, to fit all our food. The sheets were also pretty worn. Also, both the Adirondack chairs in the yard were broken. Overall, the we still had a wonderful stay.

We had a wonderful time. We rented both houses for a large family vacation. Plenty of space for our group of 12. Everything we needed could be found in both houses. Everything was identical to the photos-even better. The houses were clean and ready for our arrival. The owner answered all of our questions. I would recommed this place to others and would stay there again if with a large group. The beach was a very short drive/walk. The stores/shopping where a quick drive down the road. The houses are close together/connected almost, so if you want privacy you might consider renting both.

My family had the pleasure of staying at Hana House. There were 7 of us, and I was a bit concerned about feeling overcrowded and cramped. Not an issue at all! The decor is cute, but user-friendly. The location is great - 2 minutes from the beach. And with the few questions we had while there, the owner was very quick to respond. We plan to bring a bigger crowd next year and rent both houses!

I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend here with a couple of friends and can't recommend it highly enough! It is the perfect location, just far enough off the main drag and just close enough to the beach. I stayed in Surf Shack and it was cozy and well appointed. We loved being able to walk to the beach in a few short minutes and hear the waves from the front porch in the evenings. The owner was easy to communicate with and very helpful. I'm looking forward to returning!

Wonderful weekend with wonderful friends!
Wonderful weekend with wonderful friends!
I stayed with a group friends at Hana House and it was just great. The cabin fit all eight of us comfortably (though none of us are high maintenance travelers). I was concerned about only having one bathroom, but it ended up being a non issue. The cabin is a short walk to the beach, and has all the amenities you will need. I recommend bringing extra linens for the futons though. Also, the vent hood over the stove doesn't work, so if you plan on making bacon, be sure to open the windows! The kitchen suited our needs as everyone took turns making meals, and we seemed to everything we needed. We even used the grill! All in all, a great, comfortable place to stay if you're not looking for filly, 5-star (think luxury hotel) accommodations. Very good beach atmosphere!

This was the perfect get away. We rented both houses and were very pleased. Very pet friendly which sold us originally, but would stay there even without pets. Short walk to the beach on sidewalk all the way. Plenty of parking. Very Clean.

Great For Large Groups
Great For Large Groups
We rented both houses. It was great. Everything was as listed. Owner was extremely helpful. We used one house for the adults with no small children and one house for the adults with small children. Short walk to beach. Close to fishing areas. Everyone had a great time. Would recommend this to anyone. Hope to come again. MPR

Perfect family vacation home
Perfect family vacation home
I booked this house for a mini-vacation/ reunion with my brother in-law and his family. We had 4 adults and 5 small children between us and the house was just perfect. The two queen sized bedrooms were spacious and the futon and sleeper sofa in the living room made everyone comfortable. The location was ideal for us also. A block from the beach with an easy walk on the sidewalk or a quick jump in the car. It was also close to the shops and local grocery store. The deck was nice to relax and chat on at night. We even grilled out. Overall the house was clean, stocked with essentials and decorated as an ideal beach house. I look forward to booking this house again for more wonderful beach memories with my family.

Why the Owner Chose Other Port Aransas Properties:
We chose Port Aransas because my family had a house there when I was a kid. Summers were always wonderful for kids and now that we're adults..we find it wonderful for us adults also!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love sitting on the porch or deck and listening to the ocean.
