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.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The views were excellent, the staff was friendly and the accommodations were top notch. It was the perfect place to gather with my adult kids and spend a few days just enjoying the beach and each other. I would definitely stay again. We completely felt at home!

Clean. Close to beach.

Clean. A little noisy due to the construction but that is to be expected given the circumstances.

The Perfect Condo for a Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four days here with our two boys, ages 14 years and 14 months. This was the first time traveling with our little one, so I looked long and hard to find a place that would be right on the beach with plenty of space for all four of us. This condo definitely fit the bill. It has every everything you need.


So spacious—we had way more space than we needed.

View—better than the photos depict

Access to the beach—easy to go out for an hour and come back to rest and eat

Owner responsiveness—Erika was great and responded so quickly to my questions.

Well-stocked—I don’t cook much, but the kitchen had all of the gadgets and essentials you would need to cook every meal at home, if you wanted to.



Bathrooms were spotless, but could use some updating. I did appreciate high-end hand soap and body wash.

Hotel lobby—currently undergoing renovation and is in terrible shape. In fact, the elevator floor was plywood. I brought this to the attention of the hotel staff and they assured me it was safe. If I were an owner, I would raise a stink about this. I fully understand that storm repair takes a while, but this was just a renovation and the elevator should be a priority. You go through the lobby only when you are going to your car, so don’t let this deter you from staying. The rest of the building is fine.

To get started on your first day, I would bring coffee and something for breakfast. There is a grocery store (IAG or something like that) less than five minutes away by car. It looks like a mom and pop store online, but in person it is pretty big and has everything you’ll need.

What to bring:

Beach towels

Beach toys/boogie board

Beach chairs


Disposable coffee cups to take your coffee to the beach in the mornings

(You can actually buy these things at the store, too. Prices were pretty good.)

There is a fantastic restaurant called Seafood and Spaghetti Works. Huge open concept place with great food, service and ambiance. We had my mother’s day dinner there, and it was wonderful. Steak, seafood and pasta were all in the menu, so there is something for everyone.

Also, there is a Whataburger about two minutes away—perfect for a taquito breakfast or burger run.

We had such a great relaxing time at this condo. Thank you so much to Erika for putting your amazing condo on VRBO for other families to enjoy.

Wonderful Weekend in Port A

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a fabulous stay at Port A. Erika's place was perfect for our group. Very clean, comfortable and covered all our needs. The kitchen was well stocked and it was nice to have three bathrooms. What a bonus to have great views to the water from the main living space and the two bedrooms. We were surprised to find the condo building in good shape. The swimming pools and hot tub were open and clean. While the town continues to rebuild, the beach was gorgeous. Dinner at 'Shells' was simply fabulous. Will be back soon - maybe sometime this summer!!
