  • Cozy Kid-Friendly Condo

    "We had a great time, and the condo had everything we needed! My three year old found books, games, puzzles, movies, and tons of sand toys! The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils needed to prepare meals at home. My son enjoyed watching people play from the balcony, as well as watching the seagulls. Easy walk from the condo's front door to the beach. We even cooked out on the grill provided below our balcony. The owners were great at getting back in touch with us if we had any questions regarding our stay. We will definitely be back!"

  • Perfect location

    "We stayed for a week at this condo, and while the building is dated, we could not have asked for a better experience. The condo had a fabulous view, was perfectly comfortable and accommodating for our family of six. When they say "steps from the beach" it's literal. We've vacationed in Port A for four consecutive years at different condos- this is our favorite. There was no trek to the beach- it's right there. We rented a golf cart and were able to leave our car parked (when it wasn't raining.) It was such a short distance from shops and restaurants, and we didn't even need the cart for the beach because it was so close. What made it perfect was the excellent service by Kristin. She was willing to work with us when a scheduling conflict arose and was more than accommodating, going out of her way to make sure we had the perfect vacation. Mission accomplished. We'll be back, for sure."

  • Beautiful home - good location; BUT wifi is horrible.

    "This is a great multi-family house. There is a separate apartment on the first floor which is great for a couple/small family who wants privacy. Upstairs in the main quarters are five other bedrooms and baths - so no one has to fight for a bed or bathroom time! The house is literally a hundred steps from the wooden walkway to the beach - it's beautiful, and is next door to the community pool (which is very cold, not heated). The sand on the beach is amazing - very fine and very packed which is great for running on the beach or building sand castles. The one MAJOR disadvantage of this house is the very unreliable wifi - completely out most of the time despite our efforts to reset it/unplug it. We ended up relying on a neighbor's weak signal and our own MiFi. Also, the house does not have ANY shampoo, salt, spices, oil, etc. No food stuffs of any kind so be prepared to bring or buy (fortunately the IGA is well stocked and about a mile away)"

  • LOVELY

    "I enjoyed my visit this year as much as I did last year. My favorite thing is a cup of coffee watching the sunrise over the ocean. This condo is very well maintained and relaxing."

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.
