Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our beautiful oceanfront Mustang Island vacation condo features a spectacular unobstructed view of the Texas Riviera. The uncrowded, silky sandy beach is only footsteps from your door. You are just a leisurely stroll over the boardwalk to sand between your toes!

A magnificent sunrise greets you every morning as you start your day with a cup of hot coffee on your private tiled patio. Marvel at the pelicans and the seagulls as they soar past your vantage point with wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows on the NINTH floor. Miles of undeveloped beach and dunes beckon you, and there is no crowd to spoil the experience. And when night falls, the sound of the ocean surf will lull you to complete relaxation.

The Sea Gull enjoys a quiet and relaxed environment. Because many of the units are owner-occupied, you encounter fewer people on the beach and at the pool and other common areas. The walls and floors are thick and well insulated, so your neighbors won’t disturb you. It’s a leisure and family resort, far from the madding crowds of South Padre. Yet, if you seek a livelier environment, you are only a short distance away from the friendly fishing town of Port Aransas (with its great restaurants) or the thriving city of Corpus Christi.

Our top-rated, two-bedroom condo is a great getaway for couples, families, or old friends. We are close to the elevators, which is great for those with limited mobility--or in inclement weather.

You've probably come for the beach... It's just over the boardwalk! Our beach is relatively uncrowded, and complimentary shade tents and chairs are available in the summer (on a first-come basis). Rinse showers are available on the boardwalk to rinse off the sand and salt. Please bring your own beach towels.

When it’s time to cocoon after a long day of fun in the sun, relax in the serenely decorated living area with its 46-inch flat screen TV (with high-def cable, internet-enabled) and DVDs... Or enjoy one of the many board games you'll find in the hall closet. You'll also enjoy the free high-speed internet and laptop desk.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and is very well-equipped--including coffee pot (you can also help yourself to FREE morning coffee in the lobby), toaster, blender, crockpot, bakeware, and spices. There's a large pantry for groceries, so you'll have plenty of storage.

Our condo features ceramic tile throughout. The two bedrooms, each decorated with a subdued beachy flair, offer TVs, blackout shades, ceiling fans, and pillow-top mattresses. The bedroom windows overlook Wilson's Cut, the Corpus Christi Bay, and in the distance, downtown Corpus Christi. Get a good night’s sleep, and wake up tomorrow to enjoy another day in Paradise!

The inviting swimming pool is just steps from your door, yet you are not subjected to 'pool noise.' Enjoy the large hot tub (with waterfall feature), as well as the tennis and basketball court. In the basement, you'll find fitness equipment, pool table, ping pong table, and vending machines (as well as a laundry area). During the summer months, the kids can take part in the FREE Children’s Summer Art Program.

The front desk and maintenance are available 7 days a week/24 hours a day. Housekeeping provides fresh towels daily. If you have questions or problems--or need ice or pool towels--you can just contact the front desk!

If you fish, you have just discovered a treasure! We are 'fisher-friendly', with a fish-cleaning station, grilling area, ample free boat parking, and easy access to the water. 'Wilson's Cut' is just across the road, granting you access to the Bay and the Gulf. This area is also on a major bird migratory path, so you can enjoy some of the best bird watching in the country.

If you golf, you're only five minutes away from Palmilla Beach--an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course--truly a 'links' course. If you like fine dining, you'll find it in both Port Aransas and Corpus Christi. All kind of water and wind sports await your discovery--or just enjoy the uncrowded beach right outside your door.

Come for a weekend or come for the winter, and you’ll find that Sea Gull 906 will welcome you. Kick back, set your internal clock to Island Time, and understand what we mean when we say, 'If you’re lucky enough to be on The Island, you’re lucky enough.'

If it’s time for a great beach getaway, we’d love for you to enjoy our home away from home. If you have questions, please email us. To book directly, call 1-800-543-0818 or 1-361-749-4191 anytime (24/7) and tell the friendly folks at the desk that you want to 'get your kicks in Sea Gull 906'!

PLEASE NOTE: WE ALSO OFFER THIS SAME CONDO AS A 1-BR/1 BA UNIT, AT A REDUCED RATE. One bedroom and one bathroom are locked off. We do NOT rent to separate parties at the same time.

YOU MUST MENTION THIS IS A VRBO RENTAL AND ASK FOR UNIT 906 TO BE GUARANTEED OUR CONDO.

Why Bob & Carolyn Reed chose Gulf Coast

We first discovered and fell in love with Port Aransas in late 2004, and by mid-2006, we had invested in our own little piece of this undiscovered gem called Mustang Island. We are fortunate to be able to realize our dream of living in two worlds--mountains and ocean. We live in Colorado in the summer and Mustang Island for the winter. While we're away, please enjoy our home away from home! Bob & Carolyn, Weston, CO

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great weekend!

Loved patio, pool, hot tub, apartment layout, and decor! Great kitchen tools and dishware! This book! Thank you!



"How we can improve:"

Agree with above comments. It was perfect! Higher chairs outside with cocktail table would be extra special!

DONE in December, 2016! We now have 2 high-top chairs and a table, as well as a dining table and 4 chairs on the deck!

Fun!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, son in law, 4 months grandson and I just returned from a mini vacation on the beach. The condo is exactly as described! Beautiful views of sunrise and moonrise. The kitchen had everything we needed so my daughter who loves to cook, prepared delicious meals for us. Housekeeping service everyday! The walk to the beach is easy (I have bad knees!) and the pool was also very nice. There are plenty of board games in one of the closets and TV sets in the living room and bedrooms (we did not watch TV at all since we had plenty to do on the beach, pool and just simple relaxing on the porch. Be sure to bring your mosquito repellent! Just a suggestion... buy all your groceries in Corpus. You will save a lot of money!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Port A. We absolutely loved it!!! The condo is exactly as shown in the pictures - spacious and clean and nicely decorated. The view is spectacular! The owner was helpful both before and during our stay. We look forward to returning to Port A and staying again at this property.

So excited...jus the view, the sound of waves I was hoping for!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived and I'm already plotting our return! My 14 & 12 year old boys already off and exploring!! They were NOT disappointed that we weren't at the "neighbors with the big pool" - "this is awesome!" were their exact words!

Only thing I wish for is small washer/dryer and I only say this because u asked :)

Owner's Response: Julia, we're glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm sure the boys found the game room and the basketball hoops on the tennis court... And they couldn't miss the pool, the hot tub, and the BEACH! And I hope YOU found the laundry room in the basement. We hope you'll visit again soon!

Loved the condo! The a/c, appliances, beds, bathrooms, all worked great. Plenty of dishes to cook full meals, nice pots and pans and dishes to eat off of. The condo was lacking nothing!!! We have stayed at many condos in P. A. and this is the best one we have stayed at. Sea Gull employees at the front desk are helpful and very friendly. There was a lady picking up trash out side and she was very friendly. The grounds and where very clean and well kept. Unit 906 is beautifully decorated. The kitchen table sits 4 and I wish it was a little bigger. The view are wonderful! If you want a view stay here it is worth the price.
