About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

LOCATED DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH!! Whether you are looking for a cozy getaway for two or a vacation for the entire family, “Simply Paradise” is the perfect coastal retreat. This beautifully decorated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo offers gorgeous views in all directions. Enjoy unobstructed views of the Texas Gulf Coast from the privacy of your living room and master bedroom. Bedrooms 2 and 3 overlook the Sea Gull Condominium’s large freeform swimming pool with beautiful hot tub (complete with waterfall feature). Located on the North end of Sea Gull Condominiums our unit offers direct access to the beach and pool area.

Marvel at the spectacular sunrises over the Gulf of Mexico or sunsets over the Laguna Madre Bay on one of our three private balconies. Professionally decorated with coastal décor, comfy furniture, TV’s in every room and a well stocked kitchen. Have work to do? Free high speed internet connections in the condo.

This is not a typical rental, this is our families’ home away from home and we want it to be yours too! Kids are made to feel welcome with a large bunkroom that sleeps 4-6 guests. There is even a Children’s Summer Art Program staffed by bonded and caring personnel offered FREE to our guests as well as a play room complete with ping pong and pool tables. Twenty-four hour on-site management is available to meet all your needs.

The Sea Gull Condominiums are located about 5 miles up the coast from the small town of Port Aransas. Although Port Aransas is a relaxing little fishing village, it has a surprising variety of fun shops and excellent dining experiences. SPORTSMEN can enjoy such pastimes as parasailing, surfing, kayaking, bay and/or deep sea fishing (Wilson’s Cut boat access is directly across the street). On-site boat/trailer storage welcome (no charge) and a fish cleaning station to boot. If Golf is your game the brand new “Newport Dunes Golf Club” is a one-of-a-kind “Arnold Palmer signature” designed course and only minutes away. It is also the only seaside golf course in North America designed by Arnold Palmer.

“Simply Paradise” on the Texas Gulf Coast is just a phone call away at 1-800-543-0818 / 361-749-4191. ASK FOR UNIT #101.

About Tommy Lipe

Ginny and I along with our 4 Children Live in the Texas Hill Country Northwest of San Antonio.

Tommy Lipe purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tommy Lipe chose Gulf Coast

The smell of Salt air, The incredible sunsets and sunrises, the never ending ocean breeze, the sound of the waves breaking, These are all great reasons that we chose Mustang Island for our family's summer getaway, but the real reason is the excitment, joy, and smiles we see on our kids faces while we are there. We wanted a place where the kids could bring their friends and we could share our love for the coast with other families and friends. We found that in our SeaGull condo. It really is Simply Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a Wonderful time! Your condo is homey and we enjoyed every bit. Will definitely want to come back.

Wonderfully appointed unit with beachview, close to swimming-pool, BBQ grills and fitness center

this three bedroom unit is well appointed and offers comfortable sleeping for 8 persons in beds and bunks. Entertainment equipment is up to date and the furniture on the porches is of the highest quality.

the unit is well suited to accommodate larger crowds without feeling crowded

the kitchen is well appointed; the kitchen appliances are new and in very lean condition.

we can recommend this unit wholeheartedly and pan to stay here again

A Piece of Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location... great space... great floor plan... great amenities... an absolute perfect stay!!!

Specifics - first floor end unit, very quiet and private, huge master bedroom, huge bunkroom, nice size third bedroom, beautiful kitchen and bar, large living/dining room, private patio facing the beach off the master, private patio facing the pool off the bunkroom and 3rd bedroom, private patio and picnic area facing the beach off the living/dining room, TV and Blu-ray player in every bedroom, easy and quick walk to the beach via a boardwalk that is only for guests of the condo complex, 20 minute drive to all the hot spots in Corpus Christi, 10 minute drive to Port Aransas.

The bunkroom, third bedroom, and second bathroom have a door separating them from the rest of the condo, which creates a nice private area for the kids and/or a second family. Perfect for a single family that wants to spread out or two families that want to share a vacation! It's a great value, no matter the circumstances!

What a FABULOUS place to stay! I recently booked this condo after hearing about it from a friend. I went down with about four other friends and we had more than enough room to spare! You could probably fit twelve people comfortably in this condo! It has a fully stocked kitchen so we were able to cook all our meals and is just a few minutes from Port Aransass town. We could even walk straight onto the beach whenever we wanted to. The entire condo is well put together and has a pool and hot tub. We had so much fun and I know well be coming back soon!

Awesome accomodations and super friendly staff!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing fun time. Very comfortable, nicely decorated and fun to cook in! Walk to the beach, sit on the deck and watch the waves come in. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and weight room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for anything more... loved it..
