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 Gulf Coast

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!!!

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 !

Picture perfect landing spot for a weekend of surf and sun

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well kept. The pools were very private and easy to access. The beach was a short walk away over beautiful dunes. It was perfect for our family vacation.

The condo is very nice with ample sleeping space. The bathroom was very nice. Whole place was clean The kitchen was stocked with coffee and condiments. Board games provided evenings of fun. It was a wonderful location. Far enough away from the hub-bub of the beach traffic in Port A, but within a 15 minute drive of the docks and shopping.

We will definitely visit Marina's property again! I highly recommend it.

Completely Relaxing and 100% Pleasant

  • 5 of 5

My mom, 6 yr old son, and I stayed here for about 5 days and had one of the best vacations we've had in a long time. All of our needs were met by this relaxing condo. There was nothing that seemed to be lacking. Location is convenient and the accommodations were exactly what we needed. The condo actually seemed a little better than the pictures themselves. No problems with cleanliness and everything was easy to use. I really appreciated the extra amenities like a water boiler, a cool drink blender with a spout, games, and beach toys and chairs. It's the little extras that show the owner cares. The only thing that didn't work is the HDMI hookup on the tv's so we weren't able to watch a movie we wanted to on the computer. But that is extremely minor and not why we went to the beach. Thank you so much for a lovely stay and I would absolutely recommend this location to a friend and would consider it for our next trip!

Our favorite activities close by were a sand castle class w/ Mark Landrum on the beach, kayaking w/ H2O water sports, and a pirate cruise. it made for an exceptional vacation. Can't wait to go back!
