About Kathleen Hassenfratz

I have worked in the public education system for 26 years, am married and have two children. We love sports and outdoor activities and adore our condo home! Our family is located between San Antonio, Austin, and Houston and we use the condo during the summer months mainly.

Kathleen Hassenfratz purchased this condo in 1992

Why Kathleen Hassenfratz chose Gulf Coast

Our family lives in central Texas and has been enjoying Port Aransas and our condo for over 2 decades! Our parents fell in love with the Texas Gulf Coast when my brothers and I were just out of college, and this get-away became our second home. We have countless memories of family and friends lounging by the gorgeous on-site pool, and then watching the moon rise over the water from our balcony; breathtaking views! We feel lucky to be able to share our families' space with other family-friendly groups.

What makes this condo unique

My parents decorated this space as if it were truly their second home. They space has remained in spotless condition over the years as we pour our time and effort into keeping the condo clean and updated. We recently added a flat screen TV, new carpet and new furniture in the living area. We also replaced the king sized bed in the master room with a new mattress, bought a new stove and a new dishwasher! The 180-degree, unobstructed view of the ocean and beach still keeps me in AWE to this day!

Fantastic Condo

We loved our weekend at this condo. The view is spectacular! Property management was friendly and quick to respond to our questions. The condo has been well taken care of and furnished with tender loving care.

Needed to Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Sandcastle is a very good complex and the location of this unit within the complex is supreme. End unit with panoramic views overlooking the beach. Morning Sun. Kitchen very functional. A/C works great. Very comfy beds; and new carpeting in lieu of tile that is found in many rentals. Large entryway and laundry closet good for staging things without being in the way. The Wi-Fi in the complex was spotty but for a getaway it was OK to be forced to unplug. It was better on Sunday after everyone left.

The beach is a comfortable walk on the board walk. I have seen units closer to the beach in South Padre but this complex is probably the closest one available in Port 'A'. Would definitely return.

The beach here is HUGE; and because we were there off-season our family had probably 200 yards of beach to our selves after Sunday.

Excellent condo for the view, comfort and beach

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a condo with a great view of the beach and close/easy access to the beach. This place did both. The views were excellent. You face the sun during the day and then you get afternoon shade when it's late afternoon. The furniture was nice and the beds were excellent. All the kitchen supplies are included including trash bags. This property is a mile from the pier which made a nice walk or jog. Also, the property is close to town to get supplies and quick groceries. We will definitely come here again.

My heart is in Pt A

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking view every time you enter the unit! I have heard Sand Castle is among the best properties in Pt A and I can definitely say this unit has one of the ultimate positions on the building. Early morning sun; afternoon and evening shade. Absolutely beautiful views from all rooms and wrap around balcony. High enough for beach view. Full pool view. Photos are accurate.

Location is prime. I wanted to be in town for teenagers to be able to go into town without having to worry about the highway. Easy access to anywhere in Pt A, 15" or so to new Schlitterbahn and easy access to Corpus Christi airport and attractions. I was completely impressed by the local IGA grocery store so don't worry about groceries. Unfortunately, there's also a CVS minutes away. You will want for nothing.

Amenities - we brought several kitchen items that we thought we might need. The only item we used was a 5"x5" pan for a coffee cake. Probably the best appointed vacation rental I have EVER rented. More dishes than you can possibly use. And you can't beat the view when you're cooking. Ice maker, too. Vine glasses, blender, you name it. Full size washer & dryer, fans as needed. Extended entry hall makes excellent place to remove shoes and holding area for coolers or other beach gear. There's a roll-away bed in the master closet. Sand Castle provided entertainment at the pool. DJ one day; poolside family movie one evening. With popcorn! Don't know if it was specific to July 4?

There's a little weathered beachfront bar& grill a short walk down the beach. GREAT burgers, World Cup Soccer on the TVs. Some might call it a dive; I call it charming. Highly recommend.

If you have any interest in family photos while at the beach, I highly recommend Pt A local Tim Burdick. He was very accommodating and a hard worker. My daughter wanted to do her Senior pictures on the beach. We also took family pictures. His partner is an event/wedding planner if you're in the need. His prices are beyond reasonable. www.timburdickphotography.com

Lastly, I almost hate to give away this secret but it's not like I can get down there very often. Have you priced comparable condos in Pt A?? This place is a bargain! I guess I also hate for the owners to know that! They probably do. Best priced property in the complex - I'm willing to bet.

TIP: if you want to rent a beach cart reserve in advance, especially for holidays - weeks in advance. They sell out!

My heart is in Pt A. Can't wait to go back.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation. The condo was perfect for my family (5 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby). The view from every room is beautiful. You can hear the constant sound of the ocean waves. That is something my family and I love. The room is in the perfect location...pool view and a perfect beach view. Hung out at the beach all day then ended the day at the pool. Wish it could have been longer!
