Why Alex and Gabriella Garcia chose Gulf Coast

My wife and I purchased this condo to get away from the daily hustle and bustle of our jobs. Getting away has been a blessing for us and for our kids. We wanted others to have the same relaxing opportunities we've had. Please enjoy our beach front condo with our blessings.

Thank you for allowing us to host your family time together.

Gulf relaxation Texas-style

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Garcia's condo near Port Aransas! We fell asleep each night to the sound of the surf. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the beach along with my bird buddies which were entertaining to watch. The Garcia's condo is beautifully decorated with original art. It has a very spacious living area for gathering with the two bedrooms being on the second level. (Condo is located on 3rd & 4th floor). Very thoughtful complimentary items were included which was nice to not have to purchase or bring, including coffee, laundry detergent, dish soap & detergent, paper towels, ample toilet paper, etc. The Keurig machine was a bonus for me, the lone coffee drinker, but a regular full-size coffee maker was also there. We made use of the hot tub and the one heated pool, which was important for late December. The two other unheated pools looked like they would be a lot of fun for warm weather months. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this unit again!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we stayed at this condo. It is perfect...just steps from the beach with 2 balconies overlooking the beach, pools, and hot tubs. It's a perfect size with plenty of room for everyone. It has plenty of towels and has free detergent to wash the towels or your clothes. Anyone who thinks they can get a better deal somewhere else on Mustang Beach is crazy. A great deal.

Huge property with lovely updates and amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

The property is huge and the views were amazing. Everything was super clean and the unit has been updated with cool lamps and interesting (in a good way) artwork and decorations. The kitchen was very nicely appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and wish we could afford to come in the summer so that we could enjoy swimming in the ocean more! We had a question about the cable and the owners responded promptly. We had a great time!

Great view, place needs work

  • 2 of 5

The view was amazing and access to beach was great. However, to stay here is not inexpensive. It should be made clear to travelers that this condo is in a very old building. The condo itself is in need of a lot of repairs, lots of patches on the wall which need to be painted. There is a jacuzzi tub yet no stopper for the tub or instructions on how it might be used. It would be great to have some rugs in kitchen, by front door, bedside etc. The kitchen was

poorly stocked and did not have salt and pepper or even ice. Luckily, the front desk sells ice. I would have expected

both at the very least. There is a washer/dryer there yet no laundry supplies. The towels were old and stained. The bedding had long black hairs in the bed, hairs not mine. Glad I brought a beach towel, there are none there. Also it should be a given that beach towels be at a beach rental. I feel the ad on VRBO misrepresents the property. I wish I had gone to a hotel rather than vrbo in this instance.

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The Garcia's were great, rented to us on short notice and communicated with us throughout our stay. The views from both balconies were stunning. Drinking coffee while watching the sunrise was so relaxing. Easy access to the beach and the grounds were beautiful. The condo was spacious and clean. Loved our stay here.
