Perfect Beachhouse Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the biggest one on the block! It was wonderful staying here at The Shore Thing. It's a 3 minute walk to the powdery sands, and when you're all done down by the water you can come back to a 4 story luxury palace with a fantastic view of the ocean! This one is sure to make memories

Beautiful, spacious home in the perfect location near beach and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time here! The home is beautiful and has everything we needed for our stay! It is very spacious and has great views from all the amazing decks! We loved the short walks to the Gulf and coming back to the house to completely relax! One of the best homes on the block! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to stay at Rosie's Place and we couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations. We love the convenience to the beach. The house is absolutely perfect for our family- space for everyone. Plenty of bedrooms with great beds, plenty of bathrooms, great kitchen--fully equipped, laundry room, awesome sun room for reading, game table, and beautiful decks. Best of all, it has an elevator. The owner was great to work with. We highly recommend it!

Ron's 75th Birthday Party with Family And Friends

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time with our kids and a few friends to celebrate my husband's 75th birthday. The house was very nice and clean.

Close to the beach and right next to the pool. We would definitely recommend this home for a nice getaway to Port Aransas.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A Shore Thing was just as described and then some! The house was very clean and fit the needs of our 4 families perfectly with plenty of seating and places to sleep. The separate ice maker was handy for a bigger group and the elevator made transporting luggage from floor to floor easier...though you still go up & down the stairs frequently (meaning you can eat more dessert =) ). It is an easy less than 10 minute walk to the beach but the boardwalk does have stairs so bringing a wagon to help carry items did not work very well. The outdoor shower with warm water was also a plus because it helped to keep sand & dirty kids out of the house. We hung out some at the community pool which was right next door.

We had issues with the internet & TV not working the first afternoon we were there (turned out a braker was flipped) but the owners were very prompt in helping with the issues (even though they were on vacation themselves) and it was quickly fixed the next morning. Rosie and her husband are very responsive and courteous.

I would definitely recommend A Shore Thing to friends and we have already booked it for our families again next year! This is a great place to stay in Port Aransas!

Owner's Response: Dawn, Thank you for posting this nice review!! You point out many of the things that attracted me to this beach house and have made it our home away from home. My goal is to provide the highest quality possible for our guests just the same as we expect when we go there. Going to the beach is different for everyone and A Shore Thing provides that, whether you are a toddler that simply enjoys the pool next door or all the way to the elderly who need that extra comfort of an elevator to get from ground level to the 3rd floor. Thanks for reserving with us again, and we are so delighted that you will be coming back! ❤️💜💙💛💚 Best Wishes, Rosie

What a great house!!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 12 rented this beach house in June. It was absolutely perfect! The house was beautifully decorated and spotless. There was plenty of room for the whole family. We loved the spacious kitchen and it had room for all of us to eat in. We loved the outdoor patios. The elevator was very nice for bringing our stuff upstairs and for my elderly parents to use.

It was just a short walk to the beach. I would highly recommend this house for a large group. We had a wonderful stay. It was, by far, the NICEST beach house we've rented in TX.

Owner's Response: Thank you Maureen for your nice review! My goal has always been to make our beach house as nice as possible. Because we self manage, we stay very envolved with the maintenance and care. My housekeeper is the best :) ! It sounds like you have a close family and I hope you all have great memories of your stay. Come back to the Island as often as you can! ❤️💚💛💙💜 Best Wishes, Rosie
