This penthouse has a very nice, large balcony with a great gulf view.

We have stayed there twice now, and both times the family was very happy. Nice kitchen with granite, laundry, updated appliances, and a double living area so people could spread out a little ! The place is super clean and well outfitted. You can't go wrong here !!

Overall a beautiful condo in a great location.

The only problem we had was that the dishes had all been put in the cabinets dirty. We had to wash everything before we could use it.

Tons of space!

  • 5 of 5

Great bedroom set ups!!!

Everything we needed was there.

Wish the pool wasn't so cold but it is the end of winter.. haha.

The only downside was the walkway to the beach stops before you get there and you walk up and then down a soft, sandy path between some sand dunes.

However, it did get us to the beach!!

We had a blast!

Thank you!!

We had a great time despite the weather not cooperating. With our modern day Brady Bunch family, space is always an issue but this condo had more room than we could've asked for. Very convenient to everything and loaded with all of the everyday necessities!

Perfect Property !!!

  • 5 of 5

My 61 year old sister and myself (59... and holding!) took our 83 year old mother to Port Aransas for a winter getaway. It was where she and my father (who passed away 3.5 years ago) used to winter for many many years! Although they stayed closer to the ship channel and enjoyed watching the ships, I chose this property for its awesome views of the Gulf.... and it didn't disappoint! The unit afforded each of us our own bedroom, and the double living space was more than we needed, but we loved the spaciousness of the condo! Pretty much everything we needed was provided (although we did only have one trash bag for the main garbage!) We chose to eat most of our meals out, so we didn't really take advantage of the amenities in the kitchen. We spent a lot of time at the condo, and truly enjoyed the balcony with the nice tall chairs, which made viewing the ocean so easy! A couple of afternoons we took chairs out to the east side to enjoy the sun's warmth! There was some construction going on, which we understood, but it was a bit noisy, and the roof work (tar smell) was a bit obnoxious! But those minor inconveniences were easily overlooked!!

I would highly recommend this condo and if we were to return to Port A, we would hope to book this property again! Jennifer was very accommodating and quick with email/messages! Aside from having a bit of an issue with the key code (operator error!), everything went off without a hitch!

We found the walkway to the beach a bit too much for mom, so we purchased a beach parking permit and drove every day to scour the shores for treasures! The condo is so close to all shopping and restaurants.... our big decision was where to eat each day!

Very relaxing.... had a most memorable family vacation!!!!!

Car: recommended

There is a NEW Schlitterbahn less than 30 minutes away. Great fun for the entire family!

There is also great fun crab hunting on the beach at night. Bring your flashlights. Nets are about $3 at the grocery store in Port A.
