We use our condo often so we have tried to furnish and decorate with family comfort in mind. Because we are in the condo so often, we are able to stay more aware of routine improvements that might be needed and we strive to keep the condo updated.
The complex includes beach chairs and umbrellas in pool area and on beach in season . There is a large play area for children separate from pool and a large picnic area overlooking dune/beach for outdoor meals/cooking including 8 BBQs.
Port Aransas is five miles from complex and provides more than 40 eateries of every kind. Great fishing opportunities from the piers, on party boats, from the beach, jettys, bays, or for hire boats in the bays or deep sea fishing. There are a number of nice shops etc. There is a free auto ferry to the mainland, the cute town of Rockport and the Aransas Bird Santuary. The area is relatively undeveloped with many miles of barrier island dunes, salt marsh, and sand. Lots of birds, with several sanctuaries and tours available.
Family resources in the condo include a playpen, floating noodles for pool, side rails, beach toys, chairs, umbrella, and board games. These are provided for our guests' use on a honor system, so they may vary from time to time as sometimes things do not get returned.
Corpus Christi offers a world class aquarium, the USS Lexington, a botanical garden and many other attractions in case your tire of the beach or it is stormy.
We have upgraded patio furniture and the complex upgraded the pools with new tile and interior surface. Having looked recently we have come to appreciate the nice grounds of our complex with lush landscaping that is well maintained. We compared several of complexes this summer and found they don't measure up.

This was the perfect holiday weekend getaway to the Texas Gulf! Whether you go to the gulf for the fishing, kite surfing, walks on the beach, fun in the sun or just to get away and relax, this beach condo suits any type of vacation.
The complex is named La Mirage; because it’s everything your mind imagines when you desire an escape from exhaustion and stress. The condo was immaculate and provided all the amenities of a fancy hotel. The unit is one of the best in the whole complex with a huge private balcony and a seriously beautiful view of the ocean – the perfect place to gather with friends or just lounge, read and enjoy the breeze. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living room/dining room area, it’s great for families.
I dined in one night and enjoyed a shrimp feast with all the supplied necessities in the kitchen. I also took advantage of the local mom & pop restaurants. The condominium complex provides charcoal grills and a nice covered patio area, great for lunch time barbeques and mingling with the other vacationers. I met some friends from San Antonio who shared their grilled stuffed jalapeño poppers.
If you want to explore the town or need to stock up on supplies before the weekend begins, you’re only 5 minutes from the Port A strip with great seafood restaurants, gift shops, bait & tackle, grocery store, and small town bars. You can fish the piers, the jetty, and the inlet shallows all within 5 minutes. Locals mentioned awesome red fish catching in Rockport just 20 minutes away.
I hope to come back to Port Aransas again soon and stay in the beach condos at La Mirage!

New Port Dunes Golf Club is Port Aransas' new 'World - Class' championship links course. Designed by Arnold Palmer and managed by Kemper Sports, New Port Dunes Golf Course is open for public play.
Year Purchased: 2012
About: We are a family of 6 including 3 teenagers and their grandmother.
Why La Mirage: We have always loved spending time in Port Aransas and started looking for a condo that would stay in the family to be enjoyed by future generations. Port Aransas offers a laid back community with beautiful wide beaches where you can spend your day. Port Aransas also offers great fishing and shopping, so there is something for everyone here!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We are directly on the beach and our unit provides a 40 foot wide deck overlooking the ocean. While our unit is on the first of three floors, we are 12 feet in the air due to the fact it is built on cement pilings with only parking/elevators below. This provides a great area for morning or evening beverages and to chill.
The complex provides a great maintenance package with on site staff 24x7, which we have learned from some not so great experiences as renters, can be important (lockouts, broken appliances, cleaning issues, TVs). The complex is built around the common area of gardens, pools, hot tubs, decks, basketball/volleyball area, BBQ/picnic table, which allows shelter from windy days on the beach or shady areas away from the direct sun. The recreation room offers a great view of the ocean, a place to gather (can be rented for events), books, videos, ping pong. There are saunas and showers that are also available .
