About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Front door opens to the deck. Leave it open in the cool of the morning to welcome your day at the beach. Enjoy the 3rd level deck, accessed by a ladder from the 2nd level deck; good for early morning sunrise yoga or night-time star-gazing. House is about 1 mile from the grocery and restaurants in 'Old Town', a short bike ride away, and is also on the shuttle route that comes by hourly til 6pm.
Address is 603 Parkplace, near the end of 11th St., one block from Beach Access Rd IA. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach, to end of cul-de-sac, to the board walkway over some of the highest dunes on the island, no crossing of any streets...The beach at the end of the boardwalk has parking posts for cars so you can walk and sit near the water without car traffic next to you, It is about a 3 mile walk/run to the jetty, one way.
King bed, (firm futon wth tempuredic foam topper), in master bedroom. Firm, queen-size bed in 2nd bedroom. Bed and bath linens provided. Bring towels for the beach and pets. Guests must bring body soaps and hair products, hand and dish soap furnished.
This island home may not be suitable for certain age children, (there are stairs and small things!), but owner is negotiable. Pets are OK, only if they are considered part of the family, (not allowed on the furniture or wet in the house or on carpet in Master BR!). Yard is not fully fenced, child gate at stairs keeps them on the deck.

About the owner: I decided to rent my house part-time when I started traveling after my daughter married. I love it and wanted to offer it to people traveling since it is such a calming peaceful place. I do stay in it around guest schedules so that I can maintain it and keep a watchful eye on details. It is a very calming place to be, quiet and clean. When I travel I want to stay in a CLEAN accommodations with some character at an affordable price, better yet to stay at a friends place. My house is like staying at a friends house who is not at home!
Why the Owner Chose Port Aransas, TX, USA:
Clean! Comfortable, Cozy, Charming, Quiet, Eclectically furnished. Away from crowds. Not in neighborhood, Deck looks out over fields, not into the neighbor's backyard. The boardwalk to the beach at the cul-de-sac end of my street drops you onto a nice part of the beach (Mile Marker 16), and is a 12 minute walk. Beach is great for sunrise walks and running or biking along the waters edge. AND I love working with guests to make their stay as affordable as possible, always willing to negotiate, always offer the 7th night free on a week rental. I always offer last minute weekend deals if the house is not rented by the Wednesday prior to the weekend.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I LOVE the sound of the surf from the house and walking to the beach over the boardwalk where the parking posts are so no cars can drive down by the water...a perfect tranquil spot for sunrise or morning yoga. I LOVE riding the bike on the beach. I LOVE going to anyhwere in town and chatting and smiling with the life found there. I LOVE buying fresh tuna at Port A Seafood for sashimi or the grill. I LOVE my vacation rental guests because they are so appreciative of their stay at the house, for the tranquility and peace they experience and take home with them. The front door faces the back yard and the files behind the house looking east toward the dunes and the beach beyond. The dunes are protection during storm surges and hurricanes, and are high so the view of the beach is blocked, but if you climb the ladder to the 3rd level star- gazing deck, the far off water and ships waiting to come through the ship channel can be seen.
