  • Super Bowl fun

    "We rented this house for Super Bowl back in February and never put in our review. There were 4 couples who just wanted to get together and hang out and this house was spectacular! Super comfortable, EVERYTHING you ever need and BEAUTIFULLY decorated! Great for couples and family's. I hope to be able to bring my family soon!"

  • Great property, great vacation, but beach access could be better.

    "We stayed at the Ocean Breeze in late July 2010 with extended family. The layout was perfect, with plenty of space for all to spread out (we had 6 adults and a two year old). The home is like-new, with wood floors throughout and nice furniture. I especially liked the elevator, and it sure helped when moving ice chests in and out of the 3rd floor kitchen! The Port-A Escapes people went all out. The home had every cooking appliance imaginable, extra towels, linens, a washer and dryer with soap, even a baby gate! All in all a great vacation! This was not applicable to us, but the entire home except the rooftop deck seems to be quite handicapped accessible, with the elevator, low switches, wide doorways, etc. For those without a car, or just those looking for a fun time there are a number of merchants on the island who rent gas powered golf carts to trek around town and onto the beach. Our only complaint was that there is really no easy way to access the beach from the property. There is a one-road upscale subdivision in between Village Walk and the beach. They have erected a "private" ramp crossing the dunes, and put a padlock on the gate. You can go this way by climbing around the gate through the dunes, but you risk snakebites, thorns, and trespassing charges by doing so. You can drive on the beach, so we just piled in the car and made the 1/2 mile drive onto the beach via the access road. Again, not a huge gripe, but this was not clear on the website."

  • Loved this property!

    "We stayed here last summer in July (2010) and plan on staying again this summer. Extremely clean and maintained. The pictures accurately reflect the property, which is beautiful. We barbecued and fished right off of the back deck. The swimming pool on the property is well maintained and specious. Property is close to the bridge leading to Padre so it was very easy going to and from the beach as well. Very quiet and peaceful at all times of the day and night. Highly recommend!"

  • Soooo Awesome!

    "We stayed here for 3 nights and this will be the first place I check every time I visit Austin. The minute you open the front door you just say "Wow!" Straight ahead is a glass wall that offers a view to a lovely back yard with a huge oak tree and an inviting deck. The shade from the trees and the warm wall colors and furnishings all make this rental feel like the coziest home you've ever been in. The kitchen is modern and clean; coffees and teas were provided as well as a bottle of wine! The upstairs was the same as downstairs...beautiful, warm furnishings/decor and a very nice, large bathroom. Windows were everywhere and the 2nd floor almost felt like living in a tree house due to the mature oak trees out the windows. Doug, the owner, welcomed us personally and couldn't have been nicer. Please consider yourself fortunate to have this home available to you for your time in Austin. The location is close to everything; you will wish you lived in this neighborhood and you will wish you didn't have to leave this house. Enjoy!"

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:


Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.


As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.


The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
