About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths



The EAGLE'S NEST BEACH HOUSE is a Beautiful and Charming 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home in Royal Sands Beachfront Neighborhood! It is just a short walk to the beach and only about 25 feet from the adjacent neighborhood family swimming pool area. Royal Sands has two neighborhood swimming pools (1 adult pool, and 1 family pool). Our home offers all of the comforts of home with all the accessories for a perfect beach vacation. The EAGLE'S NEST BEACH HOUSE has a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill ready to prepare fresh fish after a fun day at the beach. A high-speed internet connection is provided. On the decks, you can feel the ocean breeze and soak up the beach experience. However, the views are magnificent from the third floor deck, the 'EAGLE'S NEST'. We also offer satellite TV and the house is furnished with attractive beach-themed furniture. We do allow well behaved pets with prior authorization and deposit. Our home is non-smoking but you may step outside to smoke. The beach is about a ten minute walk across a boardwalk over the sand dunes. With the Gulf on one side and the Bay on the other, our guests soak up a real beach experience. Port Aransas is in the migratory path for many species of birds, affording a great opportunity for birding. Bring your binoculars!

At the EAGLE'S NEST BEACH HOUSE all boats and watercraft must be parked fully in the driveway with your automobiles. Additional parking is available in the garage. If needed, you may park boats at the Port Aransas Municipal Marina. Contact the Harbor Master.

Port Aransas on the Texas Gulf Coast is a wonderful and easy to reach vacation destination! Let the EAGLE'S NEST BEACH HOUSE be your home away from home. Check out the Port Aransas website for island activities.

About The Owner

We are a retired couple who live in Austin, TX. We love going to Port Aransas with our children and grandchildren every chance we get. Our house provides enough space for our large family to unwind without tripping over each other! We love the large porches where we drink coffee in the morning, a good glass of wine in the evening and enjoy family and friends. The third story porch offers views of the glorious sunsets and the night lights of the ocean and bay. We are so pleased to share our piece of paradise with you and know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Why The Owner chose Port Aransas

The space is wonderful to support large groups. Our house is a 10 minute walk to the beach and the neighborhood pool is practically in our back yard. There is also a golf cart path directly to the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and is just a 5 minute drive into town. Since it is not right in town, the beach is a lot less crowded than the ones right in town.

3rd time to visit this house!

  • 5 of 5

Every time I go back to this beach house, I notice that there have been upgrades. The house is decorated with wonderful art work. There are new leather couches in the living room. Everything you could possibly need is available. There was a blender to make our pina coladas!

There is a new wooden walk way to the beach that is meant for pedestrians and golf carts which makes it much easier if you have a stroller or a wagon full of beach toys. My kids loved the bunk bed. The pool is literally in the back yard just a few steps away from the house.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you had such an amazing time on your 3rd visit to our Eagle's Nest! We do our best to constantly improve our home and are so pleased you enjoyed the upgrades! The new golf cart accessible boardwalk to the beach is definitely a nice addition to the area and our guests are very excited about it. It really is quite nice to have the neighborhood pool so close as well. You do get the sense this is in our backyard! We look forward to your next visit Troy, as you are always a great guest!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation were wonderful for multifamily. Having the swimming pool right out our back door was a plus. We would recommend this place and plan on coming back next year. The beach access was sufficient for our family but look forward to the new one being built (without the stairs).

The place was very clean and will stocked with linens and dishes.

Owner's Response: Jeanette, Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so pleased you enjoyed our house and the neighborhood pool just outside of the back patio door. Stay tuned for the new boardwalk that is golf cart accessible! We are very excited about this. Should be completed within a month max. We welcome your stay anytime and you were a great guest. Natalie

Eagle's Nest provided a great place for our family vacation at Port A!

  • 4 of 5

The house was comfortable and quite roomy. Everyone in our family had ample space. The beach is a bit far from the house, but you can walk it. We spent one whole day at the beach. It was crowded, but enjoyable. It was mostly a family oriented beach. We were glad that we brought a shade tent and bag chairs! You wouldn't have wanted to stay very long without them. The pool close by the house was small but clean. We didn't use it very much.

There were only enough bath towels/washcloths for one night. We washed them after the first night, but didn't have washcloths the third night. We used hand towels from the bathroom in the kitchen. There were no kitchen towels. For a large group, you may want to bring more paper towels and trash bags. There were not enough provided. By the time we left both trash receptacles outside were overflowing. (One was full when we arrived.)

On a side note, some of us went fishing on Friday. We caught redfish, shark, sand trout, etc. We took the fish filets from the catch to Virginia's on the Bay. They cooked them up for us and served us family style for that evening meal. It was such an enjoyable experience with the food being so delicious! It was a long wait, but we hung out upstairs at the bar.
