A Stunning Penthouse Perch on the Gulf with a Boardwalk to the Beach!

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,648 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

The direct Gulf views from our third floor penthouse in Port A are unbeatable! We affectionately dubbed our rental "Vamos a la Playa" or “Let’s Go to the Beach” – and that’s easy to do here, thanks to two dedicated beach boardwalks.

At family-friendly Island Retreat Resort, you’ll also have access to two pools, BBQ pits, sand volleyball courts and playgrounds.


In the main living space, you’ll be greeted first thing by gorgeous Gulf views. Settle in for conversation on the wrap-around sofa or watch TV on the flat-screen.

Our kitchen is just off the living area – partially open to dining room – and is well-stocked for the creative chef. When dinner’s ready, have a one-of-a-kind Gulf-view feast at the unique dining table next to access to the beachfront patio!

Our master bedroom boasts a comfortable king bed, the second bedroom has a queen, and our third bedroom has two queen beds.

But the best part? The large covered deck offers spectacular Gulf views in every direction!


Our condo is located at the Island Retreat Resort, which offers two boardwalks to the beach, plus multiple grill and picnic areas to choose from, as well as tennis courts, two pools, a playground, beach volleyball, and basketball court.

Port Aransas is on the very northern tip of Mustang Island at the intersection of Harbor Island and St. Jo's Island. Wildlife abounds in this eco-tourism area, including a wide variety of migratory birds. Bay and deep-sea fishing are excellent here, with boats available for charter at the marina.

Drive 30 minutes to the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. Or drive 3 minutes drive to town – just far enough away that the Penthouse remains a quiet spot to relax. If you are a golfer, grab your clubs and head to Palmilla Golf and Beach Resort just down the road. This exceptional course offers beachfront golfing, a pro shop, and a snack bar.

Schlitterbahn Waterpark is only a 20-minute drive down the island…head there for the hottest coolest time in Texas!

My family and I actually came here as a birthday gift for my girlfriend. Needless to say, she loved it and we had a great time. The house is amazing! Everything was super clean and noticeably well kept. They were helpful with assisting us and thorough on answering any questions we had. The view was awesome from the balcony. I can't say that enough. You'd have to see for yourself... On another note, we even decided to drink lots of alcohol and wonder out onto the beach. The house is within walking distance for even the drunkest of people. ;) Speaking of alcohol, The table in the dining room is perfect for beer pong. Not only that, they have plenty of coasters, bottle openers, and coozies in case you forget... However, if you're anyone else who doesn't drink or has a family... This would be fantastic for that as well. It's very homey and spacious. There's also plenty of parking spaces (Just for an added plus if you have multiple guests). I've been going down around the Port Aransas area ever since I was young and this has, by far, been my favorite place! I would highly recommend it for anyone from any walk of life!

Beautifully docorated! Awsome views! Great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many places in Port Aransas, and this condo is by far one of the most beautifully decorated ones I've seen! Very beachy! I love the open kitchen and dining areas where we had many great times cooking, visiting, and playing cards. The kitchen is well stocked with an island for serving and visiting. The deck was one of my favorite places to be at night. We enjoyed many of our evenings there just listening to the waves and stargazing; the views are amazing! There are very comfy sofas in the living area for chilling out or watching TV. We loved the swimming pool that is just across the street from the condo and played tennis a couple of times at the tennis court. The beach was beautiful and just a short walk down the boardwalk. The owners have made sure you have everything you need for a very comfortable stay! I will definitely come back to this condo and highly recommend it! It it very reasonably priced. You won't find a nicer place to stay!

Great property. Spectacular view.

  • 5 of 5

Been going to Port A for summer fun for 40 years and this is the best condo we have stayed at. Can't get much closer to the ocean than this and hearing the waves at night is mezmerizing. Too much fun and went way too fast which pretty much says it all.

Reviewer Comments:

The rental is beautiful however it is nestled among elder "owners". The first night of our stay we were reported as noisy (unfounded..1/2 of us were in bed) and received a very offensive email and voicemail from Turnkey. One of the elder residents would even watch us from the window or opened door of her condo (we felt "stalked" at times). By the 3rd day all seemed fine but just note this warning if you have a NORMAL HAPPY FESTIVE family it may not be the place for you
