  • Home Away From Home

    "We had the great pleasure, again, of staying at this beautiful home away from home. We spent two wonderful months enjoying this amazing rental property, which has everything that you could possibly need to complete your well deserved vacation. Everything is top grade and there for you to use and enjoy. There are games for family entertainment, movies to watch, ping pong table in the garage and much more. The house is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood where many restaurants, stores, banks, bars are within a short walk. The beautiful beach, which goes on forever, is within walking distance. And, if the beach is not your thing, there is a common area with a swimming pool, lounging chairs for you to relax as well as a couple of barbeques for your use. The owners are very friendly and attentive; they can't do enough for you. They provide you with lots of information before you arrive so you can get a feel for the place. If you're looking for a couples or a family get away then this is the place for you. Many thanks to Brent and Deb for allowing us the opportunity to share their little slice of paradise. We'll see you again real soon."

  • Back to Eagles Nest for a 2nd Time!

    "We just returned from 8 nights at Eagles Nest for our second time! Our family of 13, plus dogs, rented this home for a week back in 2011, and we loved it so much we chose it again this year. Not a long walk from the beach, a nice breeze on the porch, and plenty of space to spread out, or to find that quite solitude (in the Eagles Nest perch, or elsewhere) away from the rest of the group. The swimming pool is literally 10 steps away. Really enjoyed our stay yet again and highly recommend this home. And we LOVE that it is pet friendly!"

  • Great Views!

    "Me and 8 other people stayed here for the weekend. You CANNOT beat the location. We had an issue getting a hold of the manager and I did start to panic thinking we had been taken advantage of, but when she finally did respond she told us there had been an emergency at another rental unit and was trying to fix that. If you have a low riding car like one of our friends did, I would recommend parking somewhere else. The ramp to get to the house is just sand, it was easy for us in SUVs but i wouldn't recommend it for a little car. There was a leak in on of the downstairs bathrooms, but it wasn't a big deal and I'm sure they have fixed it by now. The furniture is a little outdated, but honestly, you won't be spending much time in the house when you go...because you'll be wanting to run down to the beach. My only real complaint, is that we haven't received our security deposit back. The manager said it would be mailed the week after we left, but it's been 4 weeks almost and no check."

  • Great condo!

    "We've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals but this is probably the best ever. VERY CLEAN. So pleasant and relaxing. They provide everything you need for a terrific vacation. The kitchen is amazing and has all the utensils you could want. I've never felt compelled to write a review before but this place is so nice I just had to!"

Port Aransas Travel Tips

Considered one of the "best kept secrets on the Gulf Coast," Port Aransas is just a half hour from Corpus Christi and a great place to have fun on exploring adventures or kick back and relax.

This Texas town offers some of the best fishing spots in the state, so be sure to pack your tackle box and pole if you're looking forward to catching your dinner. There are also a variety of opportunities to learn about the history of Port Aransas as well as the art and culture scene here. When you're not checking out the sights, be sure to stop into the local restaurants for some serious down-home cooking and barbecue done right. When the weather is nice, the beaches of Port Aransas are a lovely place to spend an afternoon for people who like to search for seashells, kayak or simply enjoy the peaceful setting as are the various other outdoor attractions - no matter your age.

Things to Do in Port Aransas

- Port Aransas Museum: Learn all about the history of Port Aransas at the Port Aransas Museum, where more than 30 docents have been trained to teach you information pertaining to the area throughout the years. They'll lead you on a tour, explaining each of the exhibits and answer any questions you have about the more than 12,000 documents and photos archived here, along with artifacts, oral histories and movies of Port Aransas in the 1920s. Exhibits like "Great Winds" and "High Water" bring to light natural disasters that have rocked Texas, and other displays include the Fourth Order Fresnel lens that was on top of the Lydia Ann Lighthouse from 1878 through 1952, and more. The museum is open Thursday through Saturday every week and admission is free, so a visit won't break your travel budget.

- Port Aransas Art Center: Those who appreciate artwork will truly enjoy a trip to the Port Aransas Art Center, where artists from Coastal Bend, Austin, Houston, San Antonio and elsewhere, including around the U.S. and Canada, display and sell their masterpieces, and take classes and workshops. If you're looking for some local Texan art to bring back and display in your own home, you're sure to find something unique and beautiful here. Explore the space and see what meets your aesthetic appeal, and if you're there on the first Friday of the month, check out the evening receptions that take place for artists, groups or traveling exhibits. Live music creates a party atmosphere and refreshments are provided, giving you a chance to talk to other art lovers and the artists themselves.

- Robert's Point Park: If you've ever wanted to see dolphins, head to Robert's Point Park and make a new aquatic friend. It's also home to a variety of activities for family fun on the waterfront. The 50-acre park features a pavilion for a cookout and there's a stage for festivals and local talent to perform live. Robert's Point Park is an exceptional spot for fishing due to the granite jetties. From the observation tower you can catch a glimpse of dolphins frolicking in the water. Pack a picnic lunch for a lovely outdoor meal as you take in the scenery, then start up a friendly game of basketball, horseshoe, sand volleyball or shuffleboard. A favorite spot here is the xeriscape garden that's home to plants and wildlife, and it serves to educate and charm visitors.

- Mustang Island State Park: Another terrific outdoor space to visit is Mustang Island State Park, which is great for fishing, hiking and biking due to the 5 miles of beach, swimming, surfing, kayaking and birding activities, and so much more. Whether you're looking for an adventure or a quiet afternoon, you can find both here. If you're ready to hit the water, the Mustang Island State Park Paddling Trail follows the western shoreline of the island, where you'll find awesome shallow-water fishing and bird watching.
