About Tammy and Wayne

We are a 50 something couple who are restaurant owners in North Texas. Enjoying the Texas coast as much as we do, we spend as much time at our condo as we possibly can. We have made many improvements and will continue to invest in the property with the goal of one day retiring at the beach !

Tammy and Wayne purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tammy and Wayne chose Port Aransas

Our family have vacationed on the Texas coast for many years. The small town feel of Port Aransas is just one of the many reasons we made the decision to invest in this property. Excellent restaurants, natural beauty, and a short walk over the dunes via a private boardwalk to the beach are also why we spend as much time here as we can.

What makes this condo unique

Having been built in the late 70's El Cortez Villas has the 'old school' feel of the beach properties I grew up staying at growing up. If you are looking for a huge multistory complex with loud late night partying neighbors you should look elsewhere. Many owners actually live at their property and enjoy the laid back nature of the complex. Being a downstairs unit, you won't have to negotiate a flight of stairs with your bags upon arrival and departure. In fact, the back bedroom has a sliding glass door to the back patio and a just a few steps to your own parking spot. The front patio looks onto a nice common area, grill and swimming pool which is about 20ft or so from the front door. We have designed the interior with a 'not too beachy' thought in mind.

Very happy with our stay at this rental!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was clean and roomy with very comfortable furniture. We especially loved the beds and we were happy to see that there were TVs in every room. The condo is in a great location... directly in front of the pool and also an easy 5-10 min walk to the beach. No complaints at all about this unit. Would highly recommend!

"Oasis of Relaxation"

  • 5 of 5

Although there are lots of things to do in Port Aransas, we really liked the fact that the complex was away from the main hustle and bustle of P.A. yet close enough that we could access restaurants, shops, and the ferry in just a few minutes.

This unit itself was clean, comfortable and quiet. The proximity to the pool was great. Ease of access to the beach via the boardwalk was fantastic.

We loved the unique design features in each area of the unit as well as the overall flow of the decor. The kitchen was nicely stocked with glasses, dishes, flatware, pots and pans, as well as most common appliances.

The variety of seating areas, inside and out provided a spot for everyone, to watch tv, read a book, or close their eyes to relax. Whatever your heart desires.

The owner, Tammy, was very responsive to any questions we had.

Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer......but we will definitely be back again.

Great times!

  • 5 of 5

I am always skeptical when looking for a vacation rental. But this condo is just as it looks in the pictures. BEAUTIFUL & CLEAN!! It's close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay! The only problem was that our stay was too short! We will definitely stay here again!

We would love to come back. The condo was clean and had all the necessities for a family.

It was an easy access to the beach and shopping places.

Clean and nicely decorated!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very clean. I loved that is was next to the pool. If you walk to the beach, use a wagon or pack lightly. I love the decor, and the furniture was comfortable, especially the beds! The complex was quiet. Phone and Internet service was spotty. We had to go outside to use our cell phones to make calls. We had missed calls and delayed texts (probably a good thing while on vacation!). I would recommend this place to a friend.

Great long family weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very well cared for. As mentioned in other posts, the El Cortez is an older set of condos. Unit 130 has been nicely updated and is on the first floor right next to the pool. It was perfect for our family of five adults and one infant. We were pleased with how close we were to the beach. It's a beautiful beach area. We were close to Port Aransas with groceries and restaurants. Owners were easy to work with. Unit was clean and well cared for - we would highly recommend it to you.
