About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Sand, sun, the beach... what fun!! Our condo offers the perfect experience when you come to Port Aransas. Located in a small complex, we avoid all the hustle and bustle of the larger complexes, but still have all the beautiful scenery.

Our condo has a large deck where you can sit and relax while watching the sun come up in the morning or go down in the evening. We also have views of the gulf and the bay. There is a small pond right across from our unit where you can watch the ducks and other water fowl play. The beach is a only a few minutes walk, or you can drive your car down to the board walk. When you come back from the beach, you can relax in the property pool. There is a barbecue pit available for grilling if you would like to spend the evening and eat by the water. Or, plan a day to go into Padre Island and visit the brand new Schlitterbahn, opening late June 2014... just 10 minutes from our condo!!

Returning to the newly renovated condo, you will find a very comfortable space. We love to cook when we are at the beach, so the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans to make any seafood meal or just throw together something simple. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances; a double door refrigerator with ice-maker, glass cooktop stove, dishwasher, and microwave. The dining room table will seat 6 with 2 or 3 at the island. We also have provided TV trays for those who would like to sit in front of the 42' plasma television and enjoy their meal. A small assortment of videos is also available for viewing.

Just off the living room is a small sitting room where you can get away to read a book or just look out at the deck. There is a convertible 'click clack' sofa/bed in this room and a small wet bar.

The guest bedroom will sleep 5: it contains a twin over full bunk bed, a daybed twin, with a pull out trundle underneath. This room also has cable television.

The master suite has a comfy king sized bed and a completely renovated bathroom. A 42' plasma television is also in this room. Plenty of extra sheets, blankets and pillows are in the master closet.

We have worked very hard to create the perfect place at the beach for our family, and we hope YOU can enjoy it too. And for the winter visitors... OUR COMMUNITY POOL IS NOW HEATED for your added enjoyment.

About Josh

My husband and I love the coast, and it was a long time goal to eventually be able to own a place in Port Aransas. We had traveled to Port Aransas with our 3 sons for 15 years before we were able to finally realize this dream. We wanted a comfortable place where you could stretch out and enjoy yourself. We completely took apart the existing condo and redid just about everything with the intent that we could fit our family plus visitors easily. I think we were able to do that, and we hope that others will come and enjoy it as well. I am a school teacher and my husband is a CPA. Our three sons are all Engineering majors (Aero, Mechanical, and Construction Mgt.). They are all grown with jobs and the oldest is married. We enjoy being able to get back together at the coast and make more lasting memories.

Josh purchased this condo in 2010

Why Josh chose Gulf Coast

Our family has always loved going to the coast every year to play in the sand and waves and to fish. This property was on a place on the beach where there was not as crowded as being in town. It was a smaller complex which felt more personal and cozy. We were still next to a large complex that had a restaurant if we wanted to go there. When we got the opportunity to have a place of our own, we were very excited to try our hand at fixing up an older space and make it our own.

What makes this condo unique

We love our condo because it is not the busy hustle and bustle of many of the large complexes. It is small and friendly and has all the amenities that we need to have a great time at the beach at a price that will not drain all your savings!


Our condo complex has a small game room that has a tv, ping pong and pool table. There is also a checkers table, microwave and internet access. It is open 24 hours located right by the pool.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We felt very comfortable and at home here. The condo was clean, inviting, and well-stocked. The balcony was awesome and the parking space was very convenient. My family was very happy with the choice and would love to stay here again in the future. Close to beach and quiet. Thank you for a great stay during our vacation!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time! We do hope you will be back to see us again. I do love that it is close to the beach and you can go back and forth during the day if you choose. The summer is great, but the fall is really nice as well on the beach, maybe something to think about for a different visit! Thank you again for choosing our condo for your vacation.

Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Condo was clean and accommodating with plenty of space for the 7 of us. The kitchen was well suited for cooking meals, the beds were like sleeping on "marshmallows." It had a nice washer and dryer which we used everyday and covered parking. Even the walk to Boardwalk was not bad. We loved sitting out on the balcony each night. And it was close to town. The staff was also great. What more could you ask for!!

A very pleasant experience over all. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Port A. See you next year.

Owner's Response: So glad the condo was the right size for all of you. We tried very hard to be sure it would be comfortable for larger groups. The balcony is one of my favorite places to sit in the evening after a long day at the beach. Hope you come back to see us at another time.

above what I could have expected!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first trip to Port A. However, we traveled with a seasoned family who has stayed in various locations on the island. The minute we checked in around 5pm, we headed toward the beach with drink in hand. It instantly eased the 7 hour drive from Fort Worth.

Beth was extremely helpful in assisting us with making the reservation. Her sister checked us in. The property is well kept up and maintained. Fellow condo-ites were kind and we all moved throughout the property seamlessly.

This unit slept 7 of us comfortably. We never felt crowded and that was with 4 boys, 3 of which are teenagers. With all the showering (and laundry) we did (2 bathrooms huge help!) never did we run out of water. We grilled out a few nights which was simple and easy and cooked the other nights. The walk/drive to the private pier was perfect. This unit has an amazing balcony-the breeze from the ocean was enjoyed with morning coffee and evening wine. Again, this unit (I'm assuming all the units) was well worth it!

My feeling with vacationing (and being an employee of a 4 star resort) there are those individuals out there who are looking to find fault will always find fault-that is there loss. This property does not deserve any negativity-truly. Thanks to all for making the last getaway before school start be a memorable one!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your encouraging words for our complex. There are many of us (owners) that really want this to be a great place to stay and try very hard to keep standards very high so that those who come and visit feel comfortable. We also love our deck. It just seems to be very comfortable at most times of the day. I am so glad your stay "before school started" was a memorable one... in a good way. We also have 3 boys, who are all "semi-adults" in their 20's now, and we know how important having "space" is for them!! We hope you will come back and visit with us again!

We want it to be inviting and for you to have everything you need while you are there. Thanks so much for the kind words, and we would love for you to spend time at our condo again in the future. Best Regards.

Wonderful, charming property - close to beach - great deck!

  • 5 of 5

My teen daughters, three friends and I stayed at this property in May 2013. What a wonderful find! The condo is comfortable and made us feel at home. The master bedroom is large and very comfortable. The girls enjoyed having plenty of space to sleep in the second bedroom. The two best attributes of this condo are the large deck that oversees the beach and the closeness to the actual beach. A short walk down a private lane brought the girls to a nice section of the Port A beach - not too crowded and well-maintained. The pool and hot tub were also a hit with my daughters and their friends. I love the quaintness of this property - very family oriented. Close to the main part of Port A but down the road so as to enjoy a quiet vacation with our family and friends. We plan to stay here in the future when heading back down to Port A.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our condo. We want others to enjoy it just as much as we do. I hope you will remember us the next time you visit Port A. The deck is also one of my favorite spots, and being able to drive right to the boardwalk is a pretty quick way to set up on the beach. Thank you for staying with us!
