Hurricane Harvey did a lot of damage across the Texas Coast, including the Lemontwist Beach House in Port Aransas. We survived the howling wind, but did get some flood water damage. We have rebuilt back to pristine condition. The silver lining is we were able to replace most everything in the lower level. That means, new couch, coffee / sofa / end table, all new appliances, kitchen / bathroom cabinets, and a fresh coat of paint! Help support Port Aransas by booking our place or another house in Port Aransas! And when you get there, support the local shops and restaurants.

We invite you to relax, refresh and revive at our brand new beautiful beach vacation home that is close to everything Port Aransas, Texas has to offer. This coastal rental has 4 bedrooms, a welcoming open kitchen/dining/living area, 2.5 bathrooms, and best of all - a screened-in patio that looks right out onto the sparkling new pool. With stained concrete floors, white-washed pine walls and amber pine ceilings – this house is the classic coastal home you’ve been searching for!

Located on the corner of Avenue C and 10th street, this home is within an easy 5 block walk through quiet residential streets to the beach. It’s also within easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars on Beach Street, the IGA Grocery Store, and Island Café on Main Street.

Rented a house in Port A before? Then you know most houses here only have a 2-car driveway. Finding parking for that 3rd or 4th car can be a nightmare (think tickets and/or towing). Not for us! We easily have space for 4 in our extra-wide driveway. And you can park an additional car in garage if you had to. Have a boat? No problem! We've got 32 feet of driveway space to fit most bay boats. Overnight boat parking OK here. Additional overflow parking available across the street in the summer time.

Is tennis your thing? Enjoy table tennis with the ping pong table setup right in our garage. Or if you prefer a full court experience, the high school tennis courts are free and open to the public. And once again, just a block or two from our place!

Rent a fun golf cart or bike and cruise around the island in style! Oh, and park it in our garage for safe keeping. Surf and sun, shopping, fishing and eating – it’s all just around the corner. Tired of the sand and salt, rinse off in the refreshing outdoor shower and then cannon ball into the pool. Still not cooled off? Pull your lounge chair into the shallow 'beach' area of the pool and grab a refreshment. You'll be better in no time!

This is an ideal house for one large family, or two families to split.

About Brent Nations

My wife and I live in Austin TX and have two beautiful girls. We love going to the beach!

Brent Nations purchased this House in 2011

Why Brent Nations chose Port Aransas

I've been going to Port Aransas since I was a kid. We've carried on this tradition through college and now with kids. Our dream of owning a beach house was finally realized in 2011 after much searching (and much saving)!

What makes this House unique

Our house is perfect for two families to split (or one big family with friends). With a stand alone home, you'll have a nice quiet house without those noisy neighbors. And after a long hot fun day at the beach, you'll be able to relax in the shade and swim in the cool refreshing pool steps from the back patio.

                                                          The location is great; close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The appliances are first class. The cooking pans and utensils are excellent. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. The televisions are large and there is cable assess in every bedroom. The house was clean and well maintained. The owner is readily accessible and willing to help with any problems. The pool is clean and the commons area is well maintained. I highly recommend this property.

                                                          Perfect everything!

                                                          This condo was a perfect fit for my family of 7! They even provided a portacrib for our baby! All the bedrooms were upstairs and the living and kitchen were down. The living area was great for late night watching TV. The kitchen was big enough for everyone to pitch in a fix meals. There was a small screened in area that had an outdoor table and chairs which was great for the evenings. The pool is just steps away from the back door. Everything is within walking distance from the condo. The owner is also great to work with! We enjoyed our stay even though it got cut short due to Hurricane Harvey and I pray that the condo has minimal damage and we can visit there again soon!

                                                          This was our first stay at the Lemon Twist and it was great! The house provided a great beach vibe and was clean and comfortable. There were 8 of and we had plenty of room to relax and play games. The pool that is just steps away was a favorite with kids and adults. We hope to return next season!

                                                          Cutest house and perfect for our annual girl's weekend!

                                                          We really enjoyed starting at Lemon Twist. The hosts were super accommodating, the house was very well maintained and we had the best time!

                                                          Had a great weekend with my wife, 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. The property was clean, well kept beautiful home with plenty of room for 7 adults and my grandkids. The property was close to the beach and all the dining facilities. The owner was quick to help out with a minor problem in the kitchen and went out of their way to fix the situation. I will definitely use this beautiful home again.

                                                          Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Nations for making our weekend a total success.
