About the property

Old Town, Walk to Shopping, Nightlife, Marina, Restaurants

Welcome to the PALM COTTAGE, our very comfortable, 2 bedroom cottage conveniently located on a quiet street in the best part of Old Town Port Aransas. Enter THE PALM into a welcoming Living/Dining room and kitchen with high ceilings and skylights! The open concept layout of this house is an efficient use of space with a 4 person dining table as well as additional breakfast bar seating. The bright, sunny kitchen is stocked with everything you will need during your stay!

Just off the kitchen is bedroom one with a king bed and dresser with soothing sky blue walls. The bath opens to both bedrooms and has a tub/shower combination. Bedroom two opens into the living area and features a queen bed and dresser with bedside table.

The bath also has the stackable washer/dryer which saves trips to the laundry facility. All linens and towels are furnished with a few beach towels as well. We ask that you DO NOT take our white towels to the beach.

The Dining/Living room has a table that seats 4 with additional seating at the bar. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room for extra sleeping.

On the north side, the living area opens onto a deck with seating. But most of our guests prefer the privacy of the tropical deck and the lawn, shady when you want it, accessible through the kitchen door. The Bar-B-Q is located here off the deck. The lush greenery surrounding this outdoor area provides a relaxing place to unwind when you aren’t at the beach.

The home has central air conditioning and heating and WiFi for your total comfort. We also have a selection of books, DVD’s and games for you to enjoy during your stay. There is parking for a car and a boat.

The PALM COTTAGE is just down the street from some of our favorite places to eat. Irie’s Island Food has a great selection for a small, casual place and it’s ranked the #1 Port Aransas restaurant on TripAdvisor. EATS Port A is another favorite - serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. But we usually head to Desserted Island Ice Cream for our after dinner treat during the summer. For special occasions, it’s just another block to Roosevelt’s at the Tarpon Inn or The Phoenix. The Port Aransas Wharf and Beach Street are just a few blocks away and offer many more dining and live music options. Visit the Port Aransas Museum for a glimpse of island history and the Shops at Old Town for unique Port A finds. There are so many options within just a 5 – 10 minute walk of THE PALM.

Schlitterbahn is just 20 minutes south of us! Stay in Port Aransas and have the very best of both worlds. The wonderful beaches here have always drawn beach lovers. Now if your family wants a waterpark experience, it is just a short drive.

If fishing is your game you can enter one of the many fishing tournaments held during the summer month’s or book a trip on any of the fishing boats lining the wharf area. Not fond of boats? You can fish from the multiple piers, the jetty or from the surf.

Visit the UT Marine Science Institute and Wetlands Education Center or spend a day at Roberts Point Park for fun, free entertainment for the whole family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have had the greatest time staying at Palm Cottage! This place was just big enough for us. BeeGee was the nicest and most helpful when it came to our late arrival, and was always ready to help if we needed anything. We will definitely be making our trip to Palm Cottage a yearly thing.

Owner's Response: Hi Victoria, Thank you for choosing one of our lovely properties to enjoy your Port Aransas getaway. The Palm cottage is indeed one of our most popular rentals due to its charm and beach vibe. Families love to visit in the outdoor space due its privacy and tropical feel. Being situated in "old town" is a huge bonus due its proximity to restaurants, bars, shops and the Marina. Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to hosting you in the future.

Palm Cottage

  • 4 of 5

There were four adults in our group and we stayed comfortably at the cottage. The location was great, we were able to walk to the beach and plenty of dining in the area. The neighborhood seemed safe and was relatively quiet despite being there over the fourth of July.

Only flaw was the cleaning crew apparently doesn't check the outdoor patio area as there were several beer cans/water bottles left on the deck as well as a broken lawn chair. Aside from that it was a great area to sit and enjoy some quiet time and the picnic table came in handy :)
