After two extended family reunions on the coast in New England, we knew we wanted to create that opportunity closer to home. As I searched the web for property on the Texas Coast, I found the Blue Roost. I fell in love with the blue tile in the kitchen and knew the kids and their friends would love the Seven Dwarfs room upstairs. We drove down to Port A mid week in the Spring of 2010 and put in an offer. And the rest, as they say, is history! We love staying at the Blue Roost and we know you will, too.
This charming beach house gives you the best of both worlds - close to the beach and to town. The sand is less than 5 minutes away via the private La Playa neighborhood boardwalk and our place is your best location for the yearly SandFest event located right across the boardwalk on the beach.
As our guest at the Blue Roost (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!
The Blue Roost is a three bedroom, two bathroom beach house that sleeps up to 12. It is comfortable enough for a quiet stay for two and large enough for a vacation with the extended family. Great for girls getaways, fishing excursions and family trips.
This beach house has a large, fully equipped kitchen that holds everything you need to feed friends and family. The beautiful blue tile island in the kitchen is the heart of the house. The two dining room tables seat 10 with an additional three seats at the kitchen island. For morning coffee or al fresco dining, just outside the kitchen the covered sitting area is perfect for 5 with adirondack chairs around the side deck for 4 more.
The cozy living room has two full sized slip covered Pottery Barn sofas. If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, access the wifi throughout the house and on the deck. Use the new flat screen TV to see DVDs, Cable TV and Netflix when you want to take a break from the sun.
The large master bedroom downstairs has a king bed and the equally large guest room across the hall has two queen beds. The downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. The upstairs, called the Seven Dwarfs room by my kids, is a fabulous 37-foot-long bedroom with one queen bed, 4 twin beds and a bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with a cable TV and a VCR. All bedding and bath towels are provided. No wimpy towels here!
The upper deck is a great area to work on a tan while enjoying a lovely birds eye and partial view of the Gulf. When you've had enough sun, lounge on the covered lower deck and enjoy the balmy breezes and sounds of the sea. Both decks have gates at the steps, providing a secure area for small children or pets.
Other amenities include: • Plenty of covered parking • An outdoor shower and hose to wash off the sand • A playhouse and sand toys for the kids • A basketball hoop – bring a basketball!
No Prom groups or parties please. Contract signer must stay at the house and be 25 or older.
Special Rate info: We have special monthly rates ($2200) for Winter Texans and Snowbirds. November - February is a terrific time to be at the beach!

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We love traveling and enjoy the beach going as often as time permits. We have two teenage girls and a golden retriever and usually bring a pack of friends to the beach with us. We currently live in Austin, TX.
Why the Owner Chose La Playa: Our house is close to the beach and to town. The kids like to have the option of beach time or shopping and it's all walking distance. The house is on a cozy little street in a sweet neighborhood. We chose the Blue Roost because I fell in love with the blue tile in the kitchen.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We enjoy beach time, searching for shells, watching birds (and people!) Our favorite coffee and gelato place, Coffee Waves, is a mile a way and we like to walk there to get an afternoon treat. The upper deck is great for sitting in the sun. We love the layout of the house - the big open kitchen is a gathering place for everyone. The upstairs bedroom is terrific for the kids and their friends.
