About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Thank you for your interest in Somewhere in the Sun. See details below including the virtual tour for information on Somewhere in the Sun.

Please note that we recently (January 2014) converted 1/2 of the garage into a second master suite. The remodel is finished and that additional bedroom is now available. The new master suite features a full bath with walk in shower, a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, and a small fridge and a king size bed. The house is now 4 bedroom / 3 bath. Please note that the new master has a private entrance from the outside and there are not inside stairs to the rest of the house.

Also new in the November of 2014 is an outside storage unit for guests to store bikes, kayaks, beach stuff, etc. during your stay. The storage unit is accessed via a keyless deadbolt with the same entry code as the rest of the house. We also provide a beach cart (pulled by hand) to take your stuff to and from the beach.

It is just a short walk to the Sandpoint beach walk-over or the neighborhood pool when you rent this new, gorgeous, fully furnished, 3 story, 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with ocean and pool views and 3 outside decks.

This fantastic 3 story house has it all with stainless appliances, 6 top table, bar top, DVD, wireless hi-speed internet, and flat screen televisions in every room! Perfect for a party of 8-10, it has 1 king, 2 queens, two twin beds (in the same bedroom) and 1 full size bed - an adorable full-sized Murphy bed (wall bed). It also has 2 twin inflatable mattresses and bedding for children to use.

There is also a Keurig coffee machine in the kitchen and Keurig mini in the downstairs master bedroom for guest to use so bring your favorite K-cups.

The home is located just a few steps from the Beach Lodge, the only breakfast and hamburger joint on the beach in Port A. There is an outdoor shower for cleaning up when you come in from the beach.

The popular Sandpoint subdivision is in town and close enough to bike to town for shopping, restaurants, and other amenities. The pool, hot tub, beach walk-over, and park next to the pool are all available for Sandpoint homeowners and renters.

The home features gulf views from the second level deck and pool and panoramic gulf and channel views from the spacious third level deck. Along with the other amenities you also have use of the charcoal grill and picnic table. There are also beach towels that guest are welcome to use.

The floor plan for this home is: Entering the home on second level above the garage there is an open living, dining, and kitchen area. There are (inside) stairs from the back of the living room to a second level with 2 bedrooms which share a full bath with double vanities. The stairs continue up to the large master suite which has it's own balcony and access to a large rooftop deck. The master bath features double vanities and a walk-in shower. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed in one of the second level bedrooms, two twins in the other second level bedroom, and a full sized murphy bed in the living room. On the ground level there is a master suite with a king bed, a kitchenette with a microwave, sink, and small fridge and a full bath with a walk in shower. As detailed before the master suite on the ground floor has a private outside entrance.

The beach is about 300 yards from the house - there is a walking path and a beach walkover at the end of the subdivision. In the photo labeled 'view of neighborhood pool from spacious third level deck' on this website the beach walkover is located next to the green house in the background past the pool.

If you like this home but it is already booked for the dates you need or if you need more room please check out our other properties, the Costa Ventures Beach Houses, VRBO # 351988 or VRBO # 356438. They are pet friendly, 5 bedroom / 4 bath 2 story homes which sleeps 14 in each home. They are across the street from Somewhere in the Sun and two houses closer to the beach.

All beds in the home have either high-end Sterns & Foster, Serta or Sealy pillow-top mattresses which are less than 4 years old - something our guests who have slept on inferior or old mattresses while on vacation really appreciate.

If you are interested in renting our beach house click on the 'email owner' button on the right side of this webpage and fill out the form. You will receive a reservation agreement detailing the total, taxes, and payment schedule and options to review.

There is no smoking allowed in the house. Pets are allowed by exception only and are subject to a non-refundable pet fee.

About The Owner

My wife is from the Corpus Christi area and I am originally from the Austin area. We both grew up spending our summer vacations on Mustang Island enjoying the beach. After we married in Dallas we lived in Seattle and Scottsdale before returning to Texas to raise our children. One of the reasons we moved to Austin from Dallas was to be closer to the coast. We spent several summer vacations when our children were young traveling to different beaches including California, Florida, Alabama, the Carribean, and Costa Rica while always going to Port Aransas several times a year. While deciding where to vacation 4 years ago both of our children asked why we were going anywhere except Port Aransas since it was our favorite beach vacation destination and had everything we enjoy as a family. From that moment our goal was to have a beach house in Port Aransas. We built our home 2 years ago and have been enjoying our frequent stays there while renting our home to others who love Port Aransas, fishing, and the beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Sand Point

We chose Port Aransas because it is easily accessible by car or plane from Austin, Houston, San Antonio, or Dallas. We feel that Port Aransas is the ideal getaway as it has a casual 'beach town' feel with great dining, a nice beach, great fishing, and high end shopping while maintaining a small town feel. Port Aransas has many unique local restaurants and bars and there is not an abundance of high rise hotels and condos lining the beach.

What makes this house unique

Our home is about 300 yards from the beach. There are ocean views from the covered second level deck across the front of the home and panoramic ocean and channel views from the third level deck outside the master bedroom and the spacious rooftop deck. The rooftop deck faces the Gulf of Mexico and is a great place to gather in the afternoon and evening to enjoy the ocean breeze and views. The home is decorated in a 'Coastal Living' style with (faux) wood floors throughout, beadboard doors and trim, open cabinets in the bathrooms and kitchen, unique restored dressers and nightstands in the bedrooms, and decorations and artwork from local artist.

Great beach house !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and the house had everything advertised and more. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook, bake, and entertain. Large selecting of stemware for libations and a blender for margaritas. Short walk to the beach and great views from the decks. The kids loved the murphy bed in the living room. We will be back !

Beautiful Family Gathering Spot!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish this was another stellar experience with a "homeaway" from home property! I communicated directly with the owner, Bruce, who was friendly, reachable, and informative. I will never stay in another condo again, if I can help it, and we hope to stay at Somewhere in the Sun again!

The description of this property is absolutely correct, the photos are accurate, and we found it to be very clean, well-kept, and would definitely recommend! Our goal was to find a comfortable place to accommodate a family gathering of 8 adults, one toddler, and a dog, under one roof and without everyone on top of one another. This was a great set-up, with the separate-entry unit downstairs, and plenty of bedrooms for people to spread out and relax.

The home is beautifully decorated, well-furnished, and has a great kitchen and communal space for eating and visiting. A bit more flatware and dishtowels would have been nice, and just a note for those wanting to cook meals - bring tupperware and ziplocs for leftovers! The bedrooms are well-appointed: good bedding and comfortable beds, with drawer space and nice bathrooms. (Water pressure in the showers was low, but we didn't have any issues with hot water.) We enjoyed the multi-level decks immensely, especially the rooftop deck! It was a major plus to have a washer/dryer available. Check in/out was super convenient with a keycode entry (also great for guests not wanting to mess with lost keys!) and Bruce stopped by to make sure we found everything okay, even going out of his way to get us a new remote for the living room TV which had stopped working. We did have problems with internet inconsistency and noise - the walls and floors are pretty thin, and anyone staying on a lower level is bound to hear overhead footsteps, as well as other "partiers" in the neighboring properties, as it is a 'hood full of short-term rentals. Great for dog-owners (didn't even really need a leash - dog paradise), loved the gated deck (for toddler AND dogs), and the beach is very accessible!

We spent 3 nights, it was cloudy and rained all four days. Subsequently, we spent 80% of our time inside and had ZERO problems with cabin-fever, as the home itself is so lovely and enjoyable. Bruce allowed us to stay past check-out, and we considered just never leaving! Thank you to Bruce & family for a wonderful stay! We hope to return next year!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The photos really don't capture how nice this place really is! We booked this house for a girls' getaway weekend for my sister's birthday - plenty of room for 12 people - kitchen is especially well-appointed - they even had a pastry brush! (i made a brie with puff pastry!) Owner was accessible and easy to work with, the house was incredibly comfortable and very clean, AWESOME deck off of 3rd floor master - perfect for watching the sunrise, and the first floor master is beautiful - very new and shiny! Unique likes: the bar cabinet in the living room; the Murphy bed; easy check-in/check-out. We had a lovely dinner at Roosevelts at Tarpon Inn - i highly recommend this place as well - it's tiny inside and not a menu suited for kids, but perfect for a nice dinner out for adults - you need reservations.
