Miracles do happen! We are very blessed and thankful that our condo came through Harvey safe and dry.
Update as of April, 28, 2018 one of the Island Retreat swimming pools has re-opened!
Due to Hurricane Harvey resort amenities such as the swimming pools, tennis courts, playground and other recreational facilities are not available until they are repaired. The boardwalk to the beach is fine and the beach is in good shape. As of April 27, 2018 there are 44 restaurants/bars that have re-opened with more planned to re-open by Memorial Day. so come down and enjoy the beach and support the local businesses and their employees!

Island Retreat is a great place to spend time with family and friends. This smoke-free condominium is just a short boardwalk away from the beach. The town trolley stops by the front office. Boat parking on-site.
The beach is awesome for playing with the kids, acting like a kid yourself, enjoying the scenery, taking a long stroll, a morning jog, reading a book, or delighting in the last rays of a gorgeous sunset. If you don't feel like get sandy at the beach relax by one of the two pools or play some tennis, volleyball, shuffleboard or basketball.
Or simply treasure pushing your child in a swing on the playground as they giggle with enjoyment.
Port Aransas has some great restaurants for when you feel like eating out (or you didn't have any luck fishing). For those who are feeling lucky there is the Texas Treasure gambling ship.
If you feel like exploring there are plenty of options - scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing, Aransas Wildlife Refuge and Whooping Crane Habitat or the beach!

What makes this Condo unique
The third/top floor has gulf views with a large balcony that spans the living room and dining room. We have maximized our condo to accommodate families so that parents can be together with kids and grandchildren. We are beachfront with an easy walk on the boardwalk over the sand dunes to the flat part of the beach. It is so relaxing to sit on the large balcony for hours watching the waves, reading a book our spending time with friends and family.

Perfect location! Amazing views!
This place is large enough for the whole family. Big kitchen so you can save on eating out. Right on the beach so you don’t have to worry about little ones crossing streets. Lots of construction going on in other units. It didn’t disturb us, but they did make us sign a waiver about being in a construction zone. We rented golf carts and had so much fun zipping around town. Port A strong! They are certainly working on getting their town rebuilt after hurricane damage. There was one pool open and plenty of picnic tables and grills by pool. We had a great vacation!!
This condo is fabulous.
The view at this place is spectacular and the condo is very well maintained. You can tell this owner takes upkeep seriously and works hard to ensure guests have what they need to enjoy their stay. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
Beautiful property and wonderful beach
In a very hurricane torn area this place stands out. This unit has no signs of the hurricane while two buildings down has no roof or ceiling. We have a large family and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is wonderful and well stocked with utensils. Though the beach is a short boardwalk away, it is great. About 100 yards wide of sugar sand and goes on for miles. Town is only a couple miles away and seems to have a variety of restaurants and a grocery store for eating in like we did. Well worth the price. The consensus is, if we are in the area again, this would be the place to stay.
Great location. Walk to the beach! Condo was huge! Very well decorated and spotless. Open floor plan and completely updated. Very secure and safe feeling. We were very impressed and will be back again!!
We slipped away for a quick weekend to Port A. Jane was very accommodating. Port A is still rebuilding from Harvey, but Jane’s place is top notch. No problems at all. So much room! We had only 8 people but it really can accommodate much larger groups — she has a great dining table, chairs for 10, plus 4 at the bar and even has a long bench so you could probably get even more at the table. Ample dinnerware. So glad we had the opportunity to visit! Thanks Jane! Hopefully we will be back!
Spring Break 2018
I stayed here with my family during Spring Break. The location is excellent, with beautiful views overlooking the ocean and right by a boardwalk leading over the dunes to the beach. A lifeguard stand is on that section of the beach which is nice. The property is clean and spacious, and we didn't encounter any issues. Many local businesses and amenities have now re-opened after Hurricane Harvey, but the Spring Break influx to Port Aransas was light compared to past years.
