Property type condo

About the property

Close to beach!1 Bedroom condo, King bed, Queen sofa/sleepr, 2 Baths, Sleeps 2-4

Enjoy your morning coffee from your private little patio while you watch the sun come up...and, in the evening, listen to the ocean waves and feel the gulf breeze. You can relax in my clean and comfy condo by the sea... or, you can take a short stroll down the wooden boardwalk and be on the beach in minutes.

Number 105 is in a small quiet complex not far from town, on the first floor (no stairs), making unloading the car an easy chore. This is an ideal location and perfect for couples, families and Winter Texans. Get the Beach Cottage atmosphere in this condo!! It's a hidden treasure equipped with all the conveniences of home including a well-supplied kitchen. I have dishes, utensils, pots and pans, a blender, microwave oven, coffee pot, filters, spices, wine glasses, a toaster/oven and much more. I have a wooden island on rollers, which holds additional utensils, so you can move it wherever you like. There are so many good restaurants in Port Aransas; you may not even want to cook!! An Apartment size stove and a full size refrigerator completes the kitchen! The kitchen comfortably accommodates 4 people.

The living room features a comfortable couch that converts to a Queen-size bed with a thick 5” mattress (as well as an egg crate topper, if needed), a Lazy Boy Rocker that reclines and a 32” LCD flat screen TV. The unit does have cable and internet service as well as a small selection of movies to play on the DVD and a few books, games and cards. A split A//C works independently from the one in the bedroom. The living area with the pull-out sofa is separated from the bedrooms by 2 hallway doors for privacy and quietness...

My one-bedroom condo has a king-size bed (and an egg crate topper) and TWO FULL bathrooms which will prove to be invaluable. The time taking a shower after the beach can be cut in half having two bathrooms. Both baths have a shower/tub combo, new higher commodes, great water pressure and plenty of hot water (new water heater!). The bedroom also has a full size dresser with plenty of space to put your clothes away. It has an A/C that works independently from the one in the living room and a 22" TV/DVD player combo.

Oceanside, the patio features a seating area with twin high-backed chairs and comfy pillows. Smoking is permitted in this area.

You’ll love our pool area because it is so close and has tables, chairs, loungers and umbrellas. A nearby outdoor shower permits you to wash the salt and the sand off before hitting the pool. The pool also features small sitting areas with Jacuzzi jets. For your convenience, a coin operated laundry and TWO grills (one propane, one charcoal) are on the premise.

Not only is it close to the beach and close to downtown Port Aransas, it is only 30 miles to Corpus Christi for dining and shopping and visiting the USS Lexington (nicknamed the Blue Ghost) and the Texas State Aquarium. Our newest addition, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, is a 20 minute drive. Other nearby features are the New Port Dunes, a Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course (Pro-Shop, snack bar) as well as the Aransas Queen Casino ship, a Pirate Adventure on the sea for the kids and the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge for birding lovers. Visit our Tourist Center at 403 W. Cotter which is near the ferry landing for lots more information.

About Josie Holcomb

I am a retired Texas (and Dept. of Defense) Reading Specialist who loves to travel and fish the Gulf of Mexico. This has been my vacation home for many years and just recently refurbished the entire condo to provide a litttle bit of paradise for myself, my family and my friends... and now you, too. There is nothing like being on 'Island Time'.

Josie Holcomb purchased this condo in 1999

Why Josie Holcomb chose Gulf Coast

I chose to buy this beach home for many reasons. My family has been vacationing in Port Aransas since I was a teenager (many moons ago) so I have ALWAYS loved Port Aransas. Sunrise Villa Condominiums reflect a family oriented location that remains quaint. It has a quiet, peaceful atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle and most importantly, it's close proximity to the beach was a definite asset.

What makes this condo unique

There are many things one can do in and around Port Aransas....kayaking, birding, fishing, swimming, golfing, shopping, museums...or, do some crafting, read, stroll the beach, sit outside and enjoy the cool Gulf breezes. The best thing to do is to relax. If I decide to go out, there are numerous local restaurants to enjoy. If I decide to cook at home, I've got everything one would need to prepare a tasty meal. No matter what I do, it ALWAYS seems better when I do it at the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Josie,

Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations. Your condo is so beachy fun, we positively loved it! You thought of absolutely everything when equipping the condo. Every little nook and cranny had a cute little something of interest so tastefully done. However cozy it may be, the utilization of space maximizes the usefulness of everything.

The neighbors were friendly, the pool was refreshing the parking was convenient and the beach, most importantly was nicely accessible. I loved the proximity to be able to easily sneak out before the sun was up and relish a quiet morning walk on the beach. My soul is full!

Thank you again for the use of your wonderful home!!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a short stay at Sunrise Villas. We had a terrific stay. The condo is well appointed, very comfortable, clean, and a quick walk to the beach. The complex itself is very quiet. Communication with the owners was a breeze as well. We will definitely return in the near future.

Our favorite rental in Port A

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my family stayed in this condo and we enjoyed it every bit as much as we did last year. Even though it's small, it has two bathrooms and all the amenities of home, plus it's walking distance from Coffee Waves, the town's very comfortable and tasty alternative to Starbucks. My only suggestion would be to possibly tell the housekeeping staff to lighten up on the air freshener, because on entering the condo for the first time on the first day of our stay, all four of us could barely breathe due to the overpowering smell. This was our only complaint though, and certainly not major enough to warrant a lesser rating.

The property was very well kept and had all the conveniences of home.

  • 5 of 5

We will be back. We absolutely loved this home away from home. Everything you need is there. The owner has gone out of her way to make sure you have everything. From beach chairs and umbrella to beach toys. Super kid friendly. The pool was great and the room has everything you could need. I mean everything and more.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time coming to Port A, and by far this was our favorite place to stay. The condo was the perfect size for our little family of 3. It was clean, cute and well stocked with pretty much anything we needed. The pool is directly outside the back door. There's a cute little shady area with a grill that we used several times. The beach is close enough that our 3 yr old walked there and back with no issues. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.
