We enjoyed our stay at The Sunshine House! Beautiful view of beach from deck - enjoyed having our morning coffee looking out to the water! Definitely recommend this home for a stay at the beach! It was very clean and well equipped.

Best Condo Ever

  • 5 of 5

Best condo/house ever stayed in. Had top of the line amenities loved the view and convince of being right on the beach. Best part had two separate quarters for the teens to go and come as they please without bothering the young ones. Loved it was fully stocked with towels,paper towels, toilet paper, spices. Will be staying there from now on:) I even came home and ordered the same duvets the bed was so comfortable. Best part could use the garage and shower off prior to entering the house

Great Experience at the Sunshine House

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place - certainly planning to vacation here again. Location was right on the beach - house was clean and well maintained - furnishings were nice and comfortable. The deck facing the Gulf had plenty of shaded areas - so was comfortable to sit out there at any time of day. The restaurant at the Beach Lodge is next door - so was very easy to walk over there for the times we did not feel like cooking. A fantastic experience and truly relaxing - can't wait to return.

Beachfront at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at The Sunshine House could not have been better! This home has receiving loving care over the years. Your every need has been anticipated and there is nothing better than waking up and walking out on the large front deck of your very own beach house! It's amazing how nice it is to be half the distance to the beach than usual when staying in a condo. The shower in the garage is awesome and very helpful, the 2 car garage was great for keeping the golf cart, and the super capacity washer came in handy! The swing on the top deck was so relaxing. We really enjoyed the covered seating area downstairs. It's a nice reprieve from the wind and would provide a great shaded sandy play area for small kids. The televisions are a little old and the furniture was top of the line years ago but all help to maintain that classic timeless beach house charm. We're thankful the owners shared their Sunshine House with us and we can't wait to return! One of our best rental experiences to date, we couldn't be more pleased.

Owner's Response: "Thank you for your very nice response from staying at our family`s beach house recently.. We`re glad that you had such a great time at The Sunshine House and hope to see you back again. We appreciate your detailed review since many potential guests may have some of the same questions you may have had before renting it. We feel that we have one of the finest beach house rentals in Port Aransas and glad you feel the same. There are very few beach house rentals that you actually drive from the beach to get to the house; which is the only access. We did do a major improvement to the house several years ago and just recently repaired the roof over the large sundeck. It is constant work to keep up the beach house since it is directly on the beach. When you said it was on of your best rental experiences to date; that made our family feel very good. This is only the second season we have rented it. We try to have everything as nice as we can so we appreciate your very positive feedback."
