About Collin Gruthoff

The Surf Dreams LLC was formed by three brothers, Brian, David and Collin late in 2013. The brothers decided to remodel the unit to provide an updated, comfortable atmosphere for our guests.

Collin Gruthoff purchased this condo in 2013

Why Collin Gruthoff chose Port Aransas

The condo complex is very well maintained, plenty of parking for your boats, cars or buggies. The property is close to restaurant's and everything Port Aransas has to offer, not to mention the beach is less than a hundred yards over the boardwalk. Our view is breathtaking.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is an end unit with no obstructions and you hear nothing but the ocean. The tennis courts, shuffle board, fish cleaning station, bbq area, outdoor showers and multiple pools gives our property more to offer than most others.

Fairly nice stay; upkeep / attention needed

  • 3 of 5

My family had a fairly nice stay at Coral Cay. From the grounds to the condition of the condo, I would say I was expecting a step up from what we got, but overall the stay was ok. For the benefit of the property manager and future tenants, I'll share the following:

1. The dishwasher is inoperable. The center piece that spins and directs water upwards had apparently fallen over and melted onto the heating coil. Not a huge deal overall, but it would have been nice not to spend extra time hand-washing our family's dishes after every meal...especially on vacay.

2. The internet and TV didn't work and were disconnected when we arrived. We didn't spend a great deal of time using either, however, it was nice to have occasional access when we weren't at the beach. My teenagers had to reset and hook up the modem and tv/cable. Again, not a huge deal since they had the ability to do that, but in my mind I was equating our stay in the condo with a nice hotel stay, where things are turned on, or at least operable and prepped for your arrival.

3. The grounds are ok. The distance to the beach is a short walk which was nice. The pools and parking lot are what you might expect at a mid-range motel. Not near as nice as I felt was represented in the description.

I stretched a bit to afford the price of this condo, and feel like it could have been nicer, and more attention given to the aesthetics. There were mismatched bulbs in the master bathroom, plastic doorknobs, the sleep number bed did not work, cheap motel soaps instead of soap dispensers like you would find in a home, closet doors stuck open, items on the balcony filled with sand...for the price and based on the description of a newly-remodeled condo, I was expecting a little higher caliber. It occurred to me that places I have stayed previously were owned and lived in during part of the year by those renting out the property. There's a certain pride in ownership that is reflected in the condition of these kinds of rentals, and this condo did not have that. My four children and I had a nice time at the beach, but I would not be in the position to recommend this condo.

The front door key was difficult. The door to the balcony was difficult. TV in master did not work. Wifi password did not work. The manager tried to help us here but to no avail.

We had an awesome time!

  • 4 of 5

Property was great couldn't ask for a better location. Didn't have sheets for the pull out couch the first night and couldn't get ahold of anyone until the next day to get some we did end up getting them. Place was clean and perfect for our needs. Couldn't have asked for a better location. The beach seemed chill more crowded in either direction from us we were very pleased

Collin was really helpful with information and reservations.

Coral Cay is convenient to town and is well maintained.

We had a great time and we will stay here again.

Wow! Fun for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

The view of the ocean was amazing! Condo's amenities were on point. Beach is just minutes away on foot! One of the available pools is right across from the condo! We enjoyed our time here! The couch has a hide-a-bed and the cushions constantly slid off. Wi-fi quit working halfway through our stay. Since we were not there to sit on the couch or surf the internet, these issues were no biggie. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Very clean, Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay! The condo was very clean. One of the best things was that there were plenty of dishes and cooking/eating utensils. I have stayed at many home rentals and there is not usually hand soap, dish soap, dish detergent and so on, but here we had everything needed so we did not have to make a last minute run to spend $50 on things like that. The beds were comfortable and the amount of towels were perfect for our stay. The condo was located right across the sand dunes from the beach so no complaint about the short walk over. It was also close to town where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. They also had cable and access to netflix so my little ones were happy to watch a little tv before bed. Overall, I was very pleased and would book this condo again.
