Property description

Our calendar is updated daily, please check for availability BEFORE contacting us. Spring Break is weekly rental only. Weekly rental for June, July and August. We invite you to stay with us and check out the nicest location to the beach! The address for to Island Retreat is 700 Island Retreat Road, Port Aransas, TX 78373. Look for marker #11 on the beach for entrance from the beach.

Our condo is on the ground floor with access to beach walk from balcony. No walking up and down the steps with parking right at the front of the unit.

While some condos boast new paint we took it one step further. We TOTALLY remodeled our condo, raised the ceilings, put in new sheetrock and 'recessed' lighting with dimmer switches and installed ceramic tile floors throughout.

After that, we installed beautiful birch and glass kitchen cabinets and updated our bathrooms with sinks, toilets and cabinets. Latest addition: 1080 pix flat screen TV with DVD player and wireless Internet. Sectional Italian Natuzzi sofa with recliners.

Island Retreat is a 'family' kind of place. Kids love it here as do their parents!

NO STEPS FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES...WE ARE LESS THAN 20 FEET AWAY FROM THE BEACH FROM OUR PATIO WITH A PRIVATE ENTRANCE. See beach pathway from map below. Check out the 2 awesome pools, tennis court.

Please note the overhead picture with the condo outlined in red to see the exact location. It has a great view of the pool and the Gulf of Mexico.

The condo community has coin operated laundry for your convenience and has been recently renovated and is a great place for families, couples or friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Our family just loves Port Aransas, a simple and quiet beach town North of Padre Island. We think Island Retreat is a great family place overlooking the beautiful beach with only a few steps to the board walk and the convenience of being so close to town. Want to buy a condo on Island Retreat - call Mai for the best recommendation of condos and agents in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Island Retreat:
Island Retreat is the perfect family vacation for year round island fun. The two huge beautiful simming pools right outside of our condo invite you in to relax after an afternoon on the beach, or after a game of tennis, basket ball, shuffleboard, or volleyball - all offered right on the property. World class golf just a couple of miles away at the Arnold Palmer Signature Design Newport Dunes Golf Club.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo is just minutes away from great shops and wonderful restaurants within minutes in the town of Port Aransas, along with its fleet of charter fishing boats. Corpus Chriti is only 30 minutes away.
