About Lisa Harlow

My family lives on a ranch in Central Texas. We love the outdoors, animals, travel and expecially the beach. We also love to fly. The airport at Port A is perfect for the private pilot with free trolley to town (well, last time I checked) and $5 cab rides to anywhere you need to go..although you can walk just about everywhere in this historic little town.

Lisa Harlow purchased this condo in 1994

Why Lisa Harlow chose Gulf Coast

We love Port Aransas! The Pelican was a perfect fit for our family with walking, biking or the free trolley to town and a quick walk over the dunes to the beach. It has all the amenities needed. The beautifully large pool and sprawling palm tree grounds were our first attraction. The Pelican is an average size complex with large apartments. This complex is one of the first on the island (It has withstood several hurricanes) and was build to last. It has kept up with the times with recent remodel to the entire exterior.

What makes this condo unique

Like to fish? Swim? Sail? Shop? Beach comb? Ride a bike ? Eat great food? Play tennis/ golf? Roller blade? Surf? Enjoy live entertainment? Our condo is close to it all while having the space, the quiet, the comfort and style that is hard to find in a hotel or large busy complex.

This was a great location walking distance to the beach. We would stay there again anytime. The only downfall was only two vehicles per condo. Everything else was terrific!!!

Easy to find and feels like a beach cabin once you get inside, cute beachy decor and comfortable. First floor so there are no stairs and supplied with everything you need, coin laundry on site. Lots of room and a comfortable back porch. Short walk to a great pool. Trail to the beach with showers, a bit of a hike but not too bad. I wouldn't have my mother walk it. Short drive to the beach if you don't like the trail. Very close to town which is nice. It was quiet while we were there and you could hear the ocean waves crashing if you sat outside. We'll highly consider staying here next time we visit.

An extra plus, the bed didn't hurt my back! Comfortable! Plus 2 bathrooms with showers! You can't go wrong here!

Great February 2016 Stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this condo for the month of February and it was our first stay in Port A. The condo was as stated in the VRBO ad. The owner was easy to work with, we communicated mostly by text, e mail and phone. No problems from the check in to the check out. The condo is well equipped and has the cabin feel along with the friendly beach decor. The entire complex's exterior has been repainted in a fresh white color and it has the most green space of any in the area. We were able to walk the trail over the dunes to the beach or easily walk to some of the shops and cafes towards downtown. Some guests used the pool, but we did not since it was not heated, later in the year it would be great. We felt very safe and the complex was very friendly and quiet, with both families and Winter Texans staying there. The size of the condo was fine for my wife and I, but if you had more than four people in it, my guess is that it might be a little crowded. But keep in mind that all of the Pelicans 2/2 are this size. The unit could use a little updating as many could, all in all it was a great stay for us in Port A. If and when we return, we will certainly give this condo consideration.

Great for a beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Port A! The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. AC works great. Good water pressure in the showers. There's everything you need in a decent sized kitchen. The stove isn't great, but good enough for cooking breakfast. The beds in the master bedroom aren't super comfortable, but not too bad.

The great thing about this condo is it's an extremely convenient location to everything and a short walk through the sand dunes to the beach. And outdoor showers on the grounds when you return. The walk is too far to carry a bunch of stuff. So if you're planning to camp out at the beach with coolers, chairs, etc. it's better to drive around to the public beach entrance a few blocks away. (Actually, I recommend renting a go-cart for the weekend. It’s expensive, but awesome! You can take it everywhere in Port A. We didn’t use our car the whole weekend.)

The pool at the condos is a wonderful alternative to the beach. Our kids loved it. They were also excited about the playground that is surrounded by lots of grassy space to run around and play.

BUT here's the reason I had to give four stars. There are lots of ants on the property. Lots and lots of ants. Especially around the pool. They were none inside the condo, but everywhere outside. I don’t think they are fireants because we didn’t get bitten, but they were a nuisance. We were constantly brushing them off our bodies after sitting outside. Not a big deal really, but annoying.

Aside from that, we would definitely stay here again. It's an affordable, convenient, and comfortable place to stay. And it’s right off the beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you! Yes, those golf carts are tons of fun. So sorry about the little ant invasion--a new thing for the Pelican. Pest control will put their pool party to a stop. Come again soon! Sincerely, Lisa & Patrick Harlow
