About Bee Gee McBride, Property Manager Bee Gee's Coastal Quarters

I am a retired educator here in Port Aransas and love living the island dream. When you get used to being on 'island time' hearing the waves and feeling the salt breezes in your face, nothing on earth can come that close to being heaven.

Bee Gee McBride, Property Manager Bee Gee's Coastal Quarters purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bee Gee McBride, Property Manager Bee Gee's Coastal Quarters chose Gulf Coast

Having lived in Port Aransas for 35 years, I was acquainted with the Dome and Cottage Property and even visited the construction site when it was being built. In 2007, I purchased the property next door and started my quest to acquire the Dome and Cottage. With luck and hard work, I made that dream a reality this past year after having managed it for the former owner for 4 years. I could not be happier.

What makes this cottage unique

The Dome and Cottage in the Dunes offers one of the few properties in Port Aransas with a shared pool between them and a short walk to the beach. Our unique cottage feels welcoming and you will know that you have reached a destination you will want to return to time and again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful minimoon, pre-honeymoon. The place was great and Casey (the dog) felt welcomed and had a blast too! Can't wait to come back.

Better than great...

  • 5 of 5

All smiles when we walked thru the gate and into the cottage! It was a perfect size for the two of us and our two Boston Terriers. We bought fresh fish at "Port A Crabs" right up the street and grilled out pool side on the patio each night by the crystal clear, clean pool!! It was such a nice change from staying at a big condo complex. Spent time at the beach in the mornings, but loved coming back and getting on our floats and relaxing in the pool in the afternoons...ahhhhhh. And all the reviews I read were right...that king bed is a dream!! We will be making a return visit in the future for sure.

Very nice cottage near the beach with great pool

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two dogs stayed here for a long weekend in June. The cottage was kept very nicely, the AC worked great and the pool was very nice. Even though the pool is shared with the Dome next door, we didn't see anyone else use it while we were there. Having the little grill out by the pool was nice as well. Close to downtown and the beach. Thanks!

Cute place close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were mostly pleased with everything this place had to offer. Communication with the manager was smooth and efficient, the place had just been renovated a little and it was super clean and put together.

However, their was a bit of false advertising with the description of the place and the pictures provided online of the place being "private." There are two buildings up the hill from the pool that are not mentioned or shown in pictures and one of them is actually owned by this management company and even shares the pool with our house. It was quite unnerving the whole time thinking we would have a private place and then have the house above us rented and the tenants come down to use the pool while we're out there. I'm sure they weren't told about this caveat either. Ugh.

Another perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this wonderful cottage and we hope there will be many more in our future! It's just the right size for a couple, very comfortable, and the location can't be beat. Nothing fancy, but relaxed and homey, plus close and convenient to the restaurants and shops in town. It's a short walk around the corner to the beach, but we like to load up the car and drive down to one of the beach access roads to escape the crowds; however the crowds are non-existent in October - hundreds of yards between us and the next car on the beach. We are definitely sold on Port Aransas in the autumn months! BeeGee and her staff are very welcoming and attentive to your needs. It was a perfect vacation in every way!

Cute Cottage, Wonderful Pool

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely, just the right size for the two of us and our poodle. The pool was a delight...we absolutely enjoyed it. We were able to prepare our own breakfasts allowing us to eat at our leisure and enjoy the outdoor spaces. This was our first experience with VRBO and we would definite rent again.
