Post Storm Update:

Feb 13, 2018 update: La Mirage repairs have been delayed, and we may not be able to accept any reservations for April and possibly not May. We will update as we learn more about our recovery from the hurricane.

PLEASE NOTE--You can always contact us with an inquiry to check on status and to see if we can accept your booking request. Please do not send a booking request without first checking with us. Some of the ways vrbo operates will not allow us adequate time to inquire with our management company as to the status of progress. Vrbo is set up for a "yes or no" response, and quite naturally operates less well with a "gee, we don't know if it will be ready in two months, we will get back with you in a few weeks" type situation.

If you are seeking a Texas beach getaway, I think there are condos on North Padre Island that are ready for guest rentals, and certainly there are places at Matagordo and Surfside, and of course South Padre Island.

December 10 update. Unfortunately progress has been slow at La Mirage, and the current projection is ready for rental guests beginning March 1. If it becomes possible to take rental guests in Feb, we will post that info and make a crazy-good per-night offer! Feb at the Texas coast can be a fantastic time of year--early Spring.

October 12 update. La Mirage is still undergoing repairs and we have been told it will not be possible for rental guests to stay there in Nov or even Dec. I will update if that changes.

Aug 30 update: La Mirage Condominiums sustained relatively minor damage from the hurricane, fortunately. Clean-up has begun as of Aug 30, and repairs will begin shortly. Our condo, #205, is reported to be intact and to have sustained little or no damage. We are thrilled and relieved, and honestly can't believe it. We expected our glass doors to the balcony to have been destroyed by taking a direct hit of winds up to 130 mph. A side of me wants to see pictures as proof, we are so incredulous.

Port Aransas itself has no electricity, and it is not expected to be restored for four - six weeks, or end of Sept to mid-Oct. I will update our Fall availability as things become more clear. For now, like everyone, we are keeping in our hearts those directly affected by this disaster, the people of Port Aransas, the greater Corpus Christi area, and of course the many millions of people in the Houston to Beaumont areas.

Summer is winding down, but we have lots of open dates after mid-August. Rates drop then, we will offer discounts, and book three nights get fourth night free and fifth night half-price!

Many open dates in Sept and Oct, the best time at the beach! It still feels like Summer, just without the excessive heat, and of course without the crowds! Rates drop after Labor Day Weekend, and again, 4th nt free, 5th nt half price, and we will offer discounts as well.

Send an email with your questions, a reservation request, or to book your stay--we check email very frequently 9am - 9pm, so you can expect a reply within and hour or two, and often much quicker--within minutes even

La Mirage is located about five miles south of the town of Port Aransas, so it is away from the main, more-crowded beach areas. It's right on the beach--just a few minutes walk from our door to the sand! There's never a big crowd on the beach, and a short walk to the north along the shore and you'll mostly have the beach to yourself. La Mirage has two swimming pools, with the larger pool (one of the biggest at area condos) heated during the Winter. See the photos for the courtyard and pool areas.

Our Condo: Master bedroom with king size Tempurpedic and private bathroom. Has sliding glass doors to the balcony,. 2nd bedroom has a double size and a twin bed, also both Tempurpedic, and an attached bathroom.

One our condo's best features is the large and private balcony. It overlooks an expanse of open land and has a wide view of the Gulf of Mexico. We want to let you know that some work has begun to prepare that area for development,. The land has been undeveloped for a long while, as in the pictures, but now some site preparation has happened. There still are no buildings or people, and work has appeared to stop for now. But there may begin again, so possibly there may be some daytime work going on. Otherwise, no one can see you as you enjoy the views. During sunset, the dunes glow, and moonrise over the Gulf is one of our favorite sights from the balcony!

The large living/dining area has glass doors to the balcony, a large flat-screen TV, and a round dining table that seats six. New furniture in 2015. A new sofa and loveseat, new coffee table and two new end tables. Living/dining room also has one twin bed (Tempurpedic) which can also serve as a sofa/daybed. Please note--there is not at this time a sofa-sleeper.

The master bedroom has a small tv; the 2nd bedroom does not have a tv.

The wireless network upgrade is completed and working great by all reports.

Kitchen is fully equipped with range/oven, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, electric can opener, and a wide variety of cookware, utensils, and dishes. There is a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer. Usual kitchen supplies, such as dish soap, paper towels, sponges, etc., are provided.

Quickest and best contact is via email, as we check that many times throughout the day 9am - 11pm. Send your booking request, questions or inquiries and you'll get a prompt response--max two hours, and quite often within minutes. We are very attentive to email inquiries and questions.

Be sure to look at the notes on the rates page for special deals for longer stays!

We look forward to hearing from you!

About John Silberberg and Missey Morgan

We are Austinites, and for years have loved going to the beach in Port Aransas. We were thrilled when we finally bought our condo at La Mirage, and go there as often as we can. We have come to view it as our second home, and strive to make it as comfortable and as inviting as we can. We hope you enjoy it too! Missey and John

Why John Silberberg and Missey Morgan chose Port Aransas

We knew we wanted to be in Port Aransas, and after looking around, we felt that La Mirage was a great choice. The beach is very close to the complex, just a few minutes from our front door to the sand. There's a beautiful courtyard filled with palms and flowering shrubs, with two swimming pools, one quite large and heated in cooler months. There are three spas in the courtyard too, which makes winter visits even better!

Our condo is on the north side of the building, which means you see spectacular sunrises every morning, and sometimes a beautiful moonrise as well. There is morning sun on the balcony, but by mid-day it is in the shade, which helps keep the unit cool and gives you a break from the intense Texas sun. The late afternoon sun makes the dune expanse practically glow! We love to sit on the balcony, sometimes for hours, and just admire the view.

What makes this condo unique

Imagine how an incredibly comfortable bed can help you get the most out of your vacation. Whether it's just relaxing for some well-deserved down time, or recharging for another active day at the beach, a Tempurpedic mattress can't be beat. Our guests tell us they love the beds and sleep great during their stay, and for some it's the reason they return to stay in our condo each time they visit Port Aransas.

Exactly what we needed

  • 4 of 5

Nothing fancy, but clean with comfy furniture. The patio was fantastic with a gulf view and plenty of chairs and lounges for everyone. Short walk to the beach and nice pools for when you're tired of the ocean. Thanks for a great time!

Clean and well stocked

The condo has a nice view and we enjoyed the beach area in walking distance. It is not easy to maneuver a wheel chair around especially in the bathroom but we managed.

The fun goes on!

  • 5 of 5

We have been using this unit for several years now. It's always nice to be able to visit the beach right next to the condominium which provides a "clean-off" station before going back to our unit. This keeps the sand in the rooms to a minimum and allows one to feel better for having washed off the sand and salt water bits. The unit is situated such that the deck is shaded from the afternoon sun, making it pleasant to sit and enjoy a refreshment in the cool breeze from the

Gulf. The interior has been refreshed with new furniture and paint. Everything needed to support

everyday needs is available. This includes fully equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer room.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing and leisurely time.

Great Place to Stay with Comforts of Home

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice roomy condo with a fantastic view in an older complex. We had 5 adults and we all slept great on the Temperpedic beds. The condo has been nicely updated. It is stocked with most everything your would need. The Mirage has a nice pool, hot tub and sauna. The beach is close and not too crowded as it is a ways from the public access. We would stay here again. I gave 4 stars just due the age of the complex and the elevators are not the best. Keep your food sealed up or place in fridge to keep the insects away.

For groceries we would recommend the IGA in Port A. Ask at the restaurants if they charge a fixed gratuity as we had to pay 18% (post tax) at Beach & Station Grill and a fee to get cash from an ATM we felt like trapped tourists at that place. You may have a better choice food options in Corpus which is a 10 min further drive.

Port Aransas is a great vacation destination, with many attractions and activities. Our part of the beach is very scenic, with dunes close to the shore. Even in the most crowded season, with a short walk you have the beach largely to yourself.

The palm-tree filled courtyard has two large pools, one heated in winter, and three spas, as well as picnic and bbq facilities.

Nearby attractions include deep sea and bay fishing, golf, dolphin tours, bicyle and beach buggy rentals, birding, kayaking, Texas Aquarium, and the USS Lexington, as well as numerous restaurants featuring local seafood and a wide variety of cuisines.

The best attraction, though, is the closest--the beautiful beach, perfect for running, long walks, or just relaxing to the endless sound of the surf.
