About Erika Brown
My husband, Bick, my three children, and I have enjoyed BeachSide #514 as our second home for the last 16 years. We live in Austin and visit Port Aransas often. We are in the restaurant business in Austin, and we find that Port Aransas has some of the best restaurants in Texas! We are lucky to have such a wonderful escape, and we hope you will enjoy our home-away as much as we enjoy it.
Erika Brown purchased this Condo in 1998
Why Erika Brown chose Port Aransas
The Aransas Princess Condominium is by far the finest property in Port Aransas. The building has less than half of the condos available as rentals. This helps to keep the property immaculate. The beach directly in front of the Condo is essecncially a private beach in that the area is sectioned off from automobiles. During the busy summer months, one can easily secure a section of the water front on the beach.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo, BeachSide #514, is a unique condo in that we have an end condo. Since we are an end unit, we have three balconies. The views from our condo are "Million Dollar" views. Our condo is the only condo on the end that is available for rentals. Also, our condo offers a HUGE living room. We have two extra-large sectional sofas with tons of room for game playing, and rowdy kiddos.

This was our 5th time staying it. It feels like our home beach now. Very clean and comfortable. Erika is great to stay with. We will be back soon’. K
Thoughtful Perfection Right On The Beach!!
Beachside 514 is a really incredibly well thought out condo! It’s got a huge living room and the entire front wall is a bank of windows which invite in the view of the beach and gulf. Big comfy couch with plenty of room for lounging.
Two bedrooms have their own balconies with beach views. The third bedroom is a precious, little cave-like bunk room. Going into our little vacation we thought that this room would be undesirable and we had intended to draw strays to see who got it. Not true! It’s fabulous, quiet and probably the best one for a good nights sleep. It is definitely not a detractor but a surprising plus. All three bedrooms are outstanding.
The kitchen is stocked with utensils, pots, pans, dishes, glassware...enough for all and just about anything you can think of. One of our group is an avid cook and she found everything she needed. Incredible. Fully outfitted chef kitchen. Fabulous!
Erika was available and graciously answered every question we had.
All in all outstanding. We’re already planning a do over for next year and add a fourth night.
Huge living room with fantastic view
We are three sixty-something ladies who go to Port A every summer and we spend a lot of time sitting around talking and laughing. Beachside514 filled the bill in that respect. The best part of this property is the huge living area with big sectional sofas and a great view of the gulf. There was a big, flat-screen TV, a separate sitting area with really comfy chairs, places to prop up your feet and set your coffee or drink and a dedicated WiFi network.
The balcony was great and had very comfortable and sturdy adirondack chairs and side tables so your view isn't obscured by the railing.
There are two comfortable bedrooms with their own bathrooms and a third bathroom in the hall. One of us stayed in the bunkbed room and she missed having a closet, but otherwise it was fine. It would be ideal for children.
Also very nice- a dedicated parking space in the garage so we weren't getting into an oven when we went out for dinner or shopping. The kitchen was very well appointed with everything we needed (except a pair of scissors, at least not that we came across), plenty of paper products, cloth dish towels and even some basic staples like oil, flour and some seasonings.
There are two pools on the property and the one we went to was clean and refreshing. The staff downstairs were pleasant and helpful. Oh- and there's a recycling dumpster on the way out. Thank you- we have bemoaned the lack of recycling on the island and always cart ours home with us. Erika was very responsive and got back to us quickly when we had a question.
We were happy to do our small part to help Port A recover and would definitely stay at Beachside514 again.
A great time!
You just can’t beat this location! Even with smaller kids it’s an easy walk to the beach. Condo was clean and roomy and Erika was very responsive and helpful. Thank you again!
We love this place!
Great Stay - Perfect Conditions
Great Stay. Wonderful location not too far from town. Beautiful beach conditions and perfect walk down the boardwalk to the beach. Enjoyed our stay at this condo. Everything we needed throughout from the kitchen being well equipped, washer/dryer, cool air conditioning as well as bathrooms and beds. Great open space in the living area provided perfect place for infant to move around on nice carpeting as well as entire family to be together. Dining area has plenty of chairs and huge table allowing us to all sit and eat together. Although there is some maintenance still going on around the complex because of Harvey, it didn't interrupt our stay. This unit does not show any sort of impact because of storm in 2017. Everyone working hard to get the community back to normal. Interesting to note that it is impossible to get to the beach (with a stroller or rolling ice chest, etc.) without going up or down several stairs. Sort of a big inconvenience, as well as anyone who may be mildly handicapped. Unit had everything we needed and wanted.
Please note that the building policy does not allow babies in swim diapers in the pools. If you have a baby or toddler who is not quite potty trained, call me and I'll give you ideas on how to make your stay at the Aransas Princess perfect.
