Island Retreat condo description

All remaining nights in December on Sale!

$145/night Sun-Thurs nights; $165 Fri & Sat nights plus departure/cleaning fee and tax!

Let the view and sounds of the gulf soothe the stress away. Beautifully furnished condominium with unobstructed views of the Gulf from the master bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen.

Island Retreat is a great place to spend time with family and friends. This smoke-free condominium is just a short boardwalk away from the beach. The town trolley stops by the front office. Boat parking on-site.

The beach is awesome for playing with the kids, acting like a kid yourself, enjoying the scenery, taking a long stroll, a morning jog, reading a book, or delighting in the last rays of a gorgeous sunset. If you don't feel like get sandy at the beach relax by one of the two pools or play some tennis, volleyball, shuffleboard or basketball.

Or simply treasure pushing your child in a swing on the playground as they giggle with enjoyment.

Port Aransas has some great restaurants for when you feel like eating out (or you didn't have any luck fishing). For those who are feeling lucky there is the Texas Treasure gambling ship.

If you feel like exploring there are plenty of options - scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing, Aransas Wildlife Refuge and Whooping Crane Habitat or the beach!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I consider myself to be very blessed and fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy our freedoms. I am a lucky mom to a wonderful teenage son. I find the world and people fascinating and relish the time I can spend traveling and exploring.. I love to travel, experience the world and spend time outdoors.

                  Why the Owner Chose Island Retreat:
                  When I first visited Port Aransas I knew that I wanted to live there someday. Island Retreat is beachfront has great ocean views. Island Retreat has plenty of room with all kinds of amenities. 2 Pools, Grills, Playground, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis Courts and Shuffleboard.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The second floor has gulf views with a large balcony that spans the living room and master bedroom. We have maximized our condo to accommodate families to that parents can be together with kids and grandchildren. We are beachfront with an easy walk on the boardwalk over the sand dunes to the flat part of the beach. It is so relaxing to sit on the large balcony for hours watching the waves, reading a book our spending time with friends and family.
