About the property

Sleeps 2 . 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom

Our incredible efficiency is the perfect get-a-way for two to enjoy peace & tranquillity or to be as active as you wish ~ while experiencing luxury accommodations.

We recently updated the condo with a new refrigerator and above the stove microwave.

We provide new, plush bedding on the king sized bed and soft fluffy towels too! Watching TV is wonderful on our huge flat screen TV with DVD. The kitchen area is a spotless and convenient place to prepare meals or better yet, heat up some leftovers from the fabulous local Port Aransas restaurants ~ after all, aren't you on vacation?

A separate private bathroom area is the perfect place to clean up after a fun filled day or get ready for one!

Our guests also enjoy other Sandcastle Resort features such as ~ an excellent workout facility, a sun deck, a swimming pool, hot tub, private board walk to the beach, and a fish cleaning building on site.

This condo is privately owned & rented. The Sandcastle office does not handle rentals, maintenance, or cleaning of this condo. They do, however, issue keys to the condo at our instruction.

Check in time is any time after 4PM at the Sandcastle Office. Sandcastle will not issue keys before 4PM without our permission. Check out time is Noon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying in your condo #103 at Sandcastle.

Great location in the quiet section of the complex.

We left the unit as requested…no dirty dishes & took the trash out.

Will you be mailing me my deposit check back this week?

We would love to stay there again. If you ever have any owner promotions (Spring Rates in the Summer)…please let me know.

Long month!

  • 3 of 5

Stayed January 27 thru February 29 and it was a long month in this studio condo. The Sandcastle is a great place to stay, very close to beach and the whirlpool was great. The pool was drained for cleaning for about 4 weeks while we were there and was not open yet when we left. The bed is comfortable, the chairs are not. There is not a comfortable place to sit except on the bed which gets old quickly. Condo appeared clean until we picked up rug by bed and there was 1/8" of sand under it. Couldn't help but wonder how clean rest of condo was.

If you plan on cooking or baking bring at least a frying pan and a pan for baking. We went out and bought them for our use as we enjoy eating in.

Dogs are not allowed except by owners and we had barking dog next door in condo owned by this owner, so I guess exceptions are made!

Port Aransas is a lovely town and we will return next year, but not to this condo!

Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this condo and can't say enough good things about it. The location is perfect, near pool and boardwalk, and the view of the beach is lovely. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with coffee in the morning and sharing a drink there in the evening. Very comfortable too. Thanks for a great stay!
