About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

***My dear guests, unit #205 of "El Cortez Villas" will not be available until mid summer, due to hurricane damage to the complex.

Thank you all for your support.***

Recently remodeled this large (900 sq.ft.) 1 bedroom condo with unique ocean decor is just minutes drive from Port Aransas (2,5 miles). It is a 6 minute walk down the boardwalk to the beach and the beautiful Gulf, you don't have to cross the street! The complex has brand new golf cart accessible boardwalk, so rent one in multiple places in town or bring your own and enjoy your ride along the beach. Or you can drive your car to the beach - access road is about 1 mile away from the complex. The ''El Cortez's'' beach mark is #42, the beach there is clean and not crowded. The ''El Cortez Villas'' complex is very quiet and relaxing, making it a perfect family vacation spot. There are 2 swimming-pools, grills, tennis and volleyball courts, a fish house to clean your catch of the day and a designated boat parking area to fill your needs. Our condo has a large deck and balcony with outside furniture. Inside the condo you will find: 2 TVs (40'' and 32''), washer and dryer, kitchen with cabinets loaded with dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, blender, kettle, crock-pot, toaster, microwave, new quiet dishwasher, new stove. Bathroom has new tile, tub and vanity. The bedroom has a king-size bed and a twin-size daybed. There is a queen-size sleeping sofa in living room with new memory foam mattress and brand new comfy recliner sofa, where you can relax after day under sun. Keyless lock on the front door will make your stay easier and less stressful. Enjoy your vacation in our beach condo!

About Marina & Ernest Miller

We are a family of 4, that lives near San Antonio. We love the beach and Port Aransas and welcome you to our vacation home and hope you have the same enjoyment that we do.

Marina & Ernest Miller purchased this condo in 2013

Why Marina & Ernest Miller chose Port Aransas

We came here to visit and were taken away with the charm of Port Aransas and the beauty of the gulf. When we stayed at 'El Cortez' it was so quiet and relaxing that we had to have our own unit. And now we own 2 units there, so if you are traveling with friends or 1 bedroom is not enough for your big family welcome to our downstairs 2 bedroom pool-front unit - VRBO Listing #646415.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in Love with the Boardwalk to the beach and the quiet and cleanliness of the complex with manicured lawn and beautiful tropical landscape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED this condo!! Everything was updated and it was spotless when we arrived. I mean there wasn't a spec of dust in the entire place! So well taken care of! These owners provide everything, and I mean everything you need including soaps etc.. We loved this complex too. Kids loved the pool which was also very clean and well maintained. The boardwalk to the beach is lovely. This condo is so large, tastefully decorated and relaxing! All of the beds are super comfortable. I just can't say enough about this place. Kudos to the owners for taking such great care of us. We will definitely return!!!

Loved it!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great experience. If I could change on thing about the condo, I would add a half bath in the living room. Kids want to stay up later than parents and have to come through the bedroom to go to the bathroom. Not a huge deal, but just a suggestion. Had a great time both years we have stayed there!!

Nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay! We arrived and everything was clean and ready to go. The condo had everything we needed for our stay. It was in a good location for us to be able to enjoy the beach and the town of Port Aransas. If we had any questions, they were very quick to respond. What I enjoyed, was how easy it was to get checked in and checked out. We were able to make special memories and would definitely stay there again.

Well maintained and spacious condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very well maintained, clean, comfortable, and spacious for a one-bedroom. The large deck outside was also a great feature which was not available on several other units. The owner was very helpful and responded to our needs very quickly, definitely someone who is involved in making sure renters have a great experience. The kitchen was very well-stocked with everything we needed (including a crock-pot) and it was very convenient having a washer/dryer combo in the unit. It was a little bit of a walk to get down to the beach so you're better off just loading up the car and driving about a mile to the beach access road and taking the car right up to the waves.

The complex itself was a little dated, but again was very well-kept. We had a very nice stay!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean ,beautifully remodeled with new appliances, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook and clean . Even had coffee ! We felt right at home and the beach was just a 5 minute walk from the building. There was a pretty nice swimming pool too . The beach was beautiful ,not too many people which is great when you gave kids . It was nice too after a long day a the beach to be able to shower and cool off . And being able to wash my clothes there too was very convenient. Quiet place and with pretty land scaping. Looking forward to renting again but this time I think it would be nice to go in the winter time with just my husband for a romantic getaway. Also they have excellent customer service and all my needs were met and all question answered. I recommend this place for anyone ready to kick back and relaxe on the beach . We loved it !
