About the property

Awesome Beachfront Penthouse, 4 Bedroom, Sleeps 2-14

Port Aransas registration number 248284

Miracles do happen! Our condo survived Harvey with only a broken storm door. Please contact us for insurance company or monthly rates.

Due to Hurricane Harvey resort amenities such as the swimming pools, tennis courts, playground and other recreational facilities are not available until they are repaired. The boardwalk to the beach is fine and the beach is in good shape. As of October 9, 2017 there are 12 restaurants/bars that have re-opened. so come down and enjoy the beach and support the local businesses and their employees!

We have just completed creating an open floor plan and remodeling the kitchen, dining and living room.

A new passenger elevator was installed in 2016.

Our beachfront penthouse (Top Floor/3rd Floor) has a totally unobstructed gulf of Mexico view from a gulf facing wall of glass doors, panels and windows that span the living room , dining area and master bedroom. Our beachfront penthouse condo is in Island Retreat II which is Marker 11 on the beach. The address for the entrance to Island Retreat is 700 Island Retreat Road, Port Aransas, TX 78373. The entrance is not beachfront but our condo is beachfront. I can be reached on 612.229.7999 if you have questions.

Our beachfront penthouse includes a large living area with sofas and a large screen TV, spacious dining and bar area, plus 4 separate bedrooms and 2 full baths provide plenty of room for playing games and relaxing. There are 5 Televisions. A door between the living area and bedrooms ensures that night owls and early risers do not disturb each other. We have a washer and dryer in our condo.

The living room looks directly out on the gulf of Mexico and has a sliding door to the oceanfront balcony. The living room has a sectional sofa with a queen sleeper and a large screen TV with DVD player.

The dining room looks directly out on the gulf of Mexico and has a sliding door to the oceanfront balcony. There is a beautiful dining room table with additional seating for four people at the counter top bar. The dining room has a cabinet queen sleeper with a very comfy memory foam mattress.

The master bedroom with ocean front views has a king bed, TV and an ensuite bath with a shower/tub combo.

'Going to The Beach' bedroom has a king bed and TV.

'Flamingo Fun' bedroom has a king bed, a set of bunk beds and a TV.

We do have a passenger elevator that is shared with the other penthouse condo.

Please note that while the listing frequently states "one night minimum" there are times throughout the year when we have more than a "one night minimum" even though it may say "one night minimum".

What makes this condo unique

Being on the 3rd floor which is the top floor provides for great views. Our Penthouse has 4 bedrooms!!. We are an easy walk over the dunes on the boardwalk to the flat part of the beach.

Great Stay. Would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Having been to this beach front building twice, staying in different condos, I still believe this is the best location in Port Aransas if you want ocean front access. Literally 3 min from door to water.

The condo was great. Well maintained and clean. Great view from balcony. Jane, the owner, was very helpful and communicative as well.

We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for large groups who love the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Open spaces in the common areas are perfect for conversations or events. Beach views only added additional beauty and comfort. Accommodations, from beds to living room were on point. Must admit, the rules and guidelines were a distraction due to the steep financial penalties. Having said that, highly recommend this home!

Huge condo, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. The elevator was a huge plus because we travelled with my mom that is 73 years of age and twin 3 year old boys. Jane texted us before we arrived to let us know that check in would be a bit later due to inclement weather. That was good to know. I will definitely book again if available.
