    "This property is beyond exceptional. From the decor to the comfort to the closeness of the beach. Port Aransas is an adorable town with lots to see and do. Renting a golf cart is a great idea to take in the sights. Our family loved the spaciousness of this condo. It was perfect for our 2 small children to sleep in the bunk beds, but would have been great for just my husband and I as well. The Beach is literally a few steps away, & it's located directly across from one of the pools. We loved the mixture of fun, bright colors through out the condo. There's no way you could leave this place being in a bad mood! One day it rained, and we were just as happy staying inside the beautiful, spacious condo relaxing. It has a nice kitchen thats opens into the living room, and the floors are an amazing tile that literally looks like wood! The floors are easy to keep clean by simply sweeping the sand with a broom. We liked the fact there was a very nice laundry area that was well lit and felt extremely safe at all times. Everyone was more than friendly and the staff at the property went above and beyond the call of duty. The TVS are great along with having internet, which we didn't even use, because we wanted to "be away from the world". Lol. We have already pre-booked for next year, and will also be gifting a 2 night stay as a wedding gift to some friends. I HIGHLY recommend this property! !!! We will never stay anywhere else. The rates are extremely reasonable And we loved being so close to town."

  • Beautiful beach house!

    "Our crew consisted of 5 families with 5 toddlers (2.5 years old). The house was perfect for the parents and the kids! The rooms were big enough for each family and the beds were comfortable. We stayed over a long weekend in the middle of May. South Texas was experiencing heavy rain and some flooding. The owners were helpful in regards to the road and beach conditions and we really appreciated the updates. We loved the short walk to the beach, the beautiful view from the patios, the breeze of the ocean, the cookware and dinnerware selection, the refrigerators on each floor, and how clean and well maintained the house was. The owners have thought of everything to make this house perfect for everyone! We highly recommend it and hope to be back soon!"
